SIR_Tacoxcv: have you found out if t works on the newer 3.0.x kernel? might be a not-so-pain-in-the-butt version of that00:01
xcvwhere can I get it? as I said I'm a bit afraid of kernel updates, I had bad experiences in opensuse with the nvidia proprietary driver00:02
SIR_TacoI really can't say that you wont have problems with a kernel update, but often it's the way to go.... let me find a backport of a 3 series for natty00:03
xcvSIR_Taco: ok, thank you00:04
SIR_Tacothis should help: http://ubuntuguide.net/how-to-install-linux-kernel-3-0-rc2-in-ubuntu-11-04-natty-narwhal00:06
xcvSIR_Taco: where can I get the pae kernel?00:10
bazhangxcv, install linux-generic-pae it'll pull everything in00:10
bazhangxcv, a very bad idea to install outside kernels (ie 3.0) in natty00:11
SIR_Tacobazhang: if you have a hardware problem... downgrade then?00:12
xcvbazhang: what should I do then? I need to update my 2.6.38-10 to >=2.6.39 because of a bug in the ath9x driver00:12
bazhangSIR_Taco, file a bug, wait for oneiric release, work with that00:12
bazhangxcv, whats the bug, link please00:13
xcvbazhang: and the 2.6.39?? where is it?00:13
SIR_Tacobazhang: I agree, but you will either need to upgrade or downgrade to get your hardware working properly again...00:13
xcvSIR_Taco: if I install it, will I be able to choose the older 2.6.38-10 in the grub menu?00:14
alexThunderi got a ppa for (currently) 3.0.7, if that would help - the mainline 3.x didn't work with the fglrx but the ppa provides a fixed one00:15
SIR_Tacoxcv: yes, your old kernel will be there00:16
xcvperfect, please wait and I will be back after the install & reboot00:16
SIR_Tacoxcv: ok00:17
xcvthe new kernel doesn't even recognize the card00:25
xcvi'm using the old one00:25
SIR_Tacodo you still have the previous kernel for which it worked available through Grub?00:26
xcvyes, i'm using it right now, but with it, wifi sometimes suddenly disconnects and it's very annoying00:27
bazhangxcv, got the bug link?00:27
xcvno, sorry, where?00:28
SIR_Tacohave ryou asked the atheros/madwifi guys?00:28
bazhangxcv, you said there was a bug with that card00:28
xcvi've seen that the bug is fixed in the 2.6.39 kernel00:28
bazhangxcv, so bug link, please00:28
xcvwait, please, i will look for it00:29
xcvi think that it is this one, or very similar: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/72605800:32

well_laid_lawnkubuntu doesn't have a root04:05
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo04:06

tonymci've read launchpad help but it assumes that the user is making an update of existing package13:01
tonymcso how do i version it? upstream version is 0.5.1, do i put it as 0.5.1-0ppa1 or what?13:01
tonymcdput complains about orig.tar.gz not being "needed" so i assume i am doing it wrong13:02
Peace-have you made the file control ?13:02
tonymci've made everything13:02

Peace-lauchpad will compile and create the package13:03
Peace-if you did everything well13:03
tonymcit's there on the build queue right now13:04
Peace-i guess the name is specified on the control file13:05
tonymci know the name is specified in the control, what i am asking is what is the proper way to actually assign a version number13:05
Peace-so when you have written that you have done everything you need in oder to compile it on lauchpad13:05
Peace-**^i guess**^13:05
tonymci mean, should i name it 0.5.1-0ppa1, or 0.5.1-ppa1 or something else13:06

ThePubdesktop seems to be as performant as the classic ubuntu desktop, even after turning off effects.  disappointing :(13:28
James147ThePub: in kde activities are a way of grouping tasks (atm they can hold different applciation, widgets and wallpapers) much like virtual desktop do except they can be stoped and started... also there are plans to extend their functionality to expose features to applcations13:30
James147(so that they can react differently depending on what activity they are on)13:30
ThePubstrange.  will have to find a way to turn that off.  annoying with it sitting there.13:36
ThePubnow if I could just get the desktop to react like regular ubuntu (fast), would be a happy camper :)13:37
tonymcno one forcing you to use activities, but the feature can't be turned off the same way you can't really turn off virtual desktops13:41

BluesKajrbetzen, he left16:10
rbetzenYea, saw that after the fact.16:11
BluesKajinteresting that the option isn't in the display and monitor section , it would make more sense , even tho the power management is part of it's control16:13
BluesKajrbetzen, seems to me display is the first section that comes to mind16:14
rbetzenTrue. I checked there first myself.  I had to look at the whole system settings and ask myself  if anything else could lend itself to the task before I realized I needed to check into power management.16:15
rbetzenIt would be interesting to have a bunch of people sit and do some tasks and see how often they have to hunt things down rather than just naturally go to the right option.16:17
BluesKajit's confusing to new users , i don't understand why these things are setup to be so arcane16:18
Peace--BluesKaj: nvidia card and dual monitor16:19
Peace--BluesKaj: do you know something ?16:19
Peace--i have a user that has some problems16:19
rbetzenI'm thinking that brightness actually fits under both options.  I'm not sure how to fix this one.  Maybe put the brightness control under monitors and reworking PowerDevil to just make the brightness adjustments automatically depending on settings.16:20
BluesKajPeace--, sorry I have no experience with dual monitors16:21
rbetzenNone here either, sorry.16:21
onebitxajaxòhola amigos16:22
BluesKajrbetzen, yes , one would think a simple hidden link would work16:22
AciD__how do you reset/relaunch the sound server, sometime it just freeze then no more output sounds16:29
BluesKajAciD__,  are you sure it isn't the player that's causing the problem ?16:30
AciD__BluesKaj: perhaps it could be the cause of pulseaudio or whatever backend is outputing sounds, but now I'm trying to listen to sounds from different programs, same effect : nothing16:31
AciD__i tried with clementine, juk, kaffeine, vlc..16:31
AciD__I'd hate to reboot for this :o16:31
AciD__is there a service  sound restart cmd I could use ?16:32
AciD__I tried /etc/init.d/pulseaudio restart but it tells me : PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions16:32
BluesKajAciD__, that means you have to at least logout and back in again to restart pulseaudio ...personally i don't use pulseaudio , alsamixer does the job on my setup16:35
AciD__BluesKaj: I use the default kubuntu config, perhaps not even pusleaudio, though it's running "/usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog"16:36
BluesKajAciD__, just look in system settings>multimedia>phonon16:38
AciD__just got the sound back after going to alsamixer and disabling auto-mute16:39
BluesKajcheck what audio playback device is in use16:39
AciD__not sure why this changed something16:39
AciD__BluesKaj: gstreamer, got only this backend16:39
BluesKajgstreamer is ok , but since vlc is my media player , I use the vlc phonon plugin16:40
AciD__to be exact, I disabled auto-mute, then tried to output sounds with mpg12316:40
AciD__I didn't know there was a phonon backend for vlc16:41
AciD__is it necessary, I mean, I use vlc with kde without problem16:41
BluesKajAciD__, are you on 10.10 ?16:42
AciD__nop, 11.0416:43
AciD__with kde 4.6.216:43
BluesKajodd, alsamixer no longer shows automute here , kde 4.716:45
BluesKajI fail to see why kde 4.7 would delete it16:46
BluesKajor how16:46
subr00tis the TelepathyQt4 preinstalled in Kubuntu 10.10 (KDE 4.5.1) ??16:47

CoJaBoHow do I get GIMP to do... anything at all but segfault? Running Kubuntu 11.04.20:24
CoJaBoinstalling from apt-get install gimp20:24
Omnehhi there, I have a new laptop, I just installed 11.04, it's a tablet and it has a wacom integrated as a touchscreen, but xsetwacom --list doesn't pick anything up20:34
Omnehany ideas?20:35
CoJaBo..appearently the GIMP issue is a Kubuntu bug (defaulting to GTK+ theme Oxygen thats horribly broken)- where do I report it?21:00
Alexia_DeathLaunchpad probably. But just for people here, if somebody comes complaining about non-working gimp - Tell them to change the GTK theme.21:02
CoJaBolol indeed o_o- never used launchpad before tho..21:02

xcvI am looking for a package manager GUI similar to YaST2 but i can't find anyone as complete as it. Do you know about anyone?23:03
xcvHello?? I am looking for a package manager GUI similar to YaST2 but i can't find anyone as complete as it. Do you know about anyone23:18
szalxcv: YaST is much more than a package manager23:29
xcvszal: yes, i know, but what i need is just a similar package manager, i feel very comfortable with it23:31
* szal does package management exclusively on the commandline23:32
draikszal: Me too :D23:32
KimLarouxIs there a way to change the order tasks changed upon scroll wheel in the task bar? It's the ONLY place on my desktop where it goes from left to right, Very annoying23:33
xcvszal: so... do you know about a similar package manager for (k)ubuntu?23:34
KimLarouxyeah, lol, I thought of it after.. English isn't my native language ;)23:34
szalxcv: no..  fairly obviously ^^23:34
draikxcv: I didn't get your question, but Kubuntu already comes with one.23:34
draikKimLaroux: I've not heard of that issue. Seems pretty odd that your scroll is 90'd23:35
xcvwhat i'm asking for is a similar package manager GUI to yast in (k)ubuntu because i feel much more comfortable with it than with kpackagekit, software center or synaptic23:36
KimLarouxhttps://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=228886 it's this bug. I run KDE 4.4.5. The bug report is said to be fixed, I suppose the ones running newer version can confirm this?23:39
ubottuKDE bug 228886 in widget-taskbar "Mouse wheel over task manager switches windows in wrong order" [Normal,Resolved: fixed]23:39
draikSorry, I cannot replicate23:41
xcvthe wheel on the taskbar works fine for me ( kubuntu-desktop in natty, kde 4.6.2)23:42
szaldraik: w/ the same KDE version?23:42
szalxcv: obviously, if the bug is marked as fixed ;)23:43
xcvi didn't see that lol23:44
xcvsome package manager?23:44
draikI believe so. How do I check my KDE version?23:51
KimLarouxdraik, I just go to a native KDE app and under Help > About KDE (Amarok, Dolphin, K3b...)23:52
