Does anyone have this problem or know how I could rollback qt?15:30
Guest92819hello, sry my english is very bad, but i try it. i have a netbook and with kubuntu he dont find the wifi card. in windxxx is all ok15:31

Guest92819yes. its a intel wireless n13015:34
Guest92819in additional drivers is empty, i think that he dont know that the card is inside15:34

BarkingFishEvening all.  I'm looking to migrate to ubuntu on my laptop, and I need kde, since I do a little work on their stuff occasionally.  Is kubuntu a seperate distro with kde, or do you provide kde for ubuntu?18:49
PiciBarkingFish: Kubuntu uses the same package respostories as Ubuntu does, and its safe to have both desktop environments installed side by side.18:51
BarkingFishPici, I'd prefer kde only if that's at all possible, I don't get on well with gnome.18:51
BarkingFishI'm totally new to ubuntu having been on mandriva for about the last 9 to 10 years18:52
PiciBarkingFish: Then I don't understand your question.  Kubuntu is just Ubuntu with KDE instead of GNOME.18:52
BarkingFishoh right :)18:52
PiciAnd a set of different default applications, but the core is still the same.18:52
BarkingFishMy question was asking whether kubuntu was seperate to ubuntu, as a distro, or whether you did the kde packages for ubuntu :)18:53
BarkingFishThis is how clueless I am when it comes to other distributions18:53
BluesKajBarkingFish, kubuntu is ubuntu without gnome , it uses kde in it's placa nad also has a lot of apps dev'd for it , but all apps run on the various versions of ubuntu of the same release number/name18:53
BarkingFishok, so do I need a kubuntu disk, as opposed to a normal ubuntu one?18:54
BarkingFishall I have now is a regular DVD ISO of ubuntu 11.0418:54
BluesKajBarkingFish, for kubuntu yes .it's strictly kde18:55
BarkingFishok, great, I'll go get the right iso, burn it off and start the show :)18:55
BarkingFishIt's going to be fun changing distributions, this is a whole new ball game.18:55
BluesKajBarkingFish, think you'll enjoy it , the package management is superior to most other distros18:56
BarkingFishyeah, iirc you use a debian base, .deb - I've been on a solitary rpm distribution for ages, and it's falling apart.  Time for a change :)18:58

szalis the DVD an official medium anyway?19:00
BarkingFishit's available on the download page, so I'd assume so19:01
* szal has never seen a DVD on his favourite mirror19:01
BarkingFishyep, the link I'm clicking is the first one in the dvd block for the 32 bit version on this page: http://www.kubuntu.org/getkubuntu/download#download-block19:01
BarkingFishjust comes back as can't change directory to /sites/... - no such file or directory19:02
szalBarkingFish: quoting from the download page -> "Do not be confused, even though DVDs can hold far more data than the typical Kubuntu CD, the main benefit of the DVD downloads is to get access to all of the available language packs. Most people will be fine with the standard CD installer."19:05
BarkingFishyes, that's precisely why I'm getting the DVD, because I need multilingual support.19:05
BarkingFishI'm teaching a couple of my friends locally how to use linux, and they don't have a great command of readable english. They can speak it well, but I need to be able to localise the system while I'm teaching them19:06
BluesKajBarkingFish, do have a torrent client installed?19:09
BluesKajdo you19:09
DaskreechBluesKaj: I think that is a roundrobin link19:13
BluesKajhi Daskreech a roundrobin link ?19:17
DaskreechBluesKaj: There are a number of servers with the same file and when you click on the link it goes to the next server in the list so that one doesn't get overwhelmed19:17
DaskreechHowever if someone removes the file then "randomly" someone will click on the link and 404 out19:18

BluesKajDaskreech, ok thanks ...interesting whois on barkinf*sh , his whois shows him as @wikinews/19:22
DaskreechProbably a maintainer?19:23
BluesKajyeah , and no trace of course19:23
PiciBluesKaj: wikimedia's channels are on freenode.19:24
Samo502What's the most convenient way to restore the windows MBR should I ever want to?19:25
BluesKajPici, his ISP IP is masked somehow19:25
DaskreechSamo502: have a windows CD19:26
BluesKajSamo502, easyBCD , boot disk19:26
Samo502Daskreech: does version matter? (windows vista for windows 7, etc)19:26
BluesKajSamo502, but it will probly erase grub19:27
snooffyHi guys.. is here anyone experienced with SB audigy 4 and 5.1 sound on Kubuntu 11.04 as I can't get it working...19:27
Samo502BluesKaj: well the reasoning is i have Ubuntu 11.04 on my other computer, and I do enjoy using linux quite a bit.19:27
DaskreechSamo502: Windows 7 has a different Boatloader from Windows Vista which has a different one from Windows XP19:28
Samo502BluesKaj: but sometimes i'd also like to free up the space allocated for it to use for other things, and that can't be done until the windows MBR is restored19:28
DaskreechSamo502: That's not true but ... ok19:28
Samo502i've always heard if you erase your linux partition first you could majorly damage things19:29
Daskreechpossibly but it's nothing that a live CD can't fix in a short time19:29
Samo502though, i've never actually experimented with it19:29
Samo502true that a livecd could restore grub19:29
Samo502i think it'd be nice to see an application based method to restore the MBR if needed19:30
DaskreechSamo502: For windows that's never a consideration19:31
Samo502it could be done through a livecd, however19:31
yofelfrom a linux side of view, 'grub-install' is a valid application based method, unless you want a GUI for it19:31
DaskreechThough Windows 7 does have a "kinda" app for that19:32
Samo502my main reason for wondering is because this computer didn't come with a backup disk of the OS or drivers19:32
Samo502so short of pirating one or spending the money on a disk i won't really use, you get it19:33
BluesKajSamo502, i successfully restored the mbr on W7 without losing grub, but I think I was lucky cuz I've heard easyBCD is not so easy19:33
Samo502i do rather like grub, i will admit19:34
Samo502and i wouldn't mind keeping it over the traditional MBR19:34
BluesKajgrub rocks19:34
Samo502it's just so flexible19:34
Samo502windows' MBR is probably about as flexible as a rock19:35
BluesKajyou can add windoes chainloader + , to grub.cfg19:35
Samo502simply the main goals are if i should decide to free up space, as long as most of it is free i don't mind sparing a few MB for grub19:36
ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 - See !grub1 for releases before Karmic (9.10)19:36
Samo502(of course MB may be a bit much for a bootloader, never hurts to have extra)19:37
BluesKajthere are those who dual boot , but due to job related political reasons , some like to have windows as the default boot OS , and prefer to have no time out ...using the shift key when linux is needed or wanted19:41

drbobbis there an audio equalizer in KDE?23:32
OerHeksdrbobb:  in amarok there is.23:33
drbobbOerHeks: no, I mean at the system level - pulseaudio, or whatever23:33
drbobbnever mind, I see the player I'm using has its own equalizer too23:34
OerHeksoke :-) i did not find any systemwide equaliser.23:38
drbobbthere must be some more advanced config tools for pulseaudio somewhere, though23:39
