georgeso, I've installed this ppa https://launchpad.net/~kernel-ppa/+archive/pre-proposed because of nattey power regression bug. It just want to know if this changes anything on BIOS or the like, because know my laptop runs hotter than before16:34
georgeI"ve already purge the ppa and the kernel, but even using older kernel version, cpu temp is + 60ºC, before installing it, it was around 45-8 ºC16:34
well_laid_lawnit wouldn't edit the bios16:36
OerHeksthe regression in the kernel occures in 3.+16:36
georgeOerHeks: Hello. I didn't touch anything, just installed this ppa which changed kernel 2.6.38-11.26 to 2.6.38-11.51 (lot of numbers, pre-proposed). I've already purged the kernel and the ppa, but cpu temp didn't dropped to previous levels16:38
OerHekshmm my current kernel is 2.6.38-11-generic #5016:39
user_does anyone else have problems with adjusting screen brightness in kubuntu 11.04?16:45
meddyhi, who know how to run minecraft on ubuntu. It crash:/ , I have got Radeon graphic card...16:46
georgeOerHeks: what I don't get is why the cpu temp is so high. It wasn't that high before. Even now, I'm using kernel 2.6.36 , it's still higher than before16:50
OerHeksdid you try to setup lmsensors again ?16:51
u19809hi all, i try to make vlc use the phonon backend but it does not seem to want to. how can I do that ?16:56
billytwowillyCan anyone tell me how to check if my motherboard supports hard drive bigger than 2 TB? I've been looking in google iwth litte success...16:59
well_laid_lawnif it uses sata you'll be fine17:00
OerHeksbillytwowilly, go to the site of the manufacturor, and see the technical manual ?17:03
billytwowillyit's sata.17:04
billytwowillyOerHeks: I emailed asus 2 days ago, no response yet. I guess I'll just keep waiting.17:04
georgeOerHeks: how do I setup lmsensors again?17:06
georgeOerHeks: I didn't uninstall the package17:06
georgeok, done that right know. Do I have to reboot?17:08
OerHeksno, i guess not.17:09
well_laid_lawnmight have to modprobe17:10
georgewell_laid_lawn:and how do i do that? already run sensors-detect.17:11
well_laid_lawnit should have mentioned the module needed17:11
well_laid_lawnin the sensors-detect output17:14
well_laid_lawnI haven't run it in a while and am working from memory17:15
melodieHey, I'm having a problem with my setting up my HDMI cable from my compupter to my tv. Dose anyone know if this a a video card problem, or is it becuase my computer runs of linux...or what?17:17
well_laid_lawnwith so little to go on I would guess it's a pebcak issue17:19
BluesKajmelodie, which graphics card ?17:20
melodieBluesKaj: I don't quite know how to find that out. I'm basacly clueless17:21
BluesKajmelodie, open a terminal and do , sudo lshw -C video17:22
melodieThats the pastebin of what it says17:24
melodieWould a vga cable be better?17:25
melodiesince I don't have a great hd...17:26
BluesKajvga is video only , and depending on the tv's resolution capability and connections , hdmi is much better17:27
melodieDo it is the graphic card that isn't good enough for the HDMI cable?17:28
BluesKajmelodie, what connections do you have on your tv and your pc  , are there hdmi connectors on both?17:30
melodieYes, on both the tv and the computer. The computer only has one HDMI connection though, while the tv has 217:31
BluesKajmelodie, is the hdmi cable conneceted ? and do you have ati ctalyst installed ?17:32
BluesKajerr catalyst17:32
melodieYes, the HDMI cable is connected. But Idk what the..umm catalyst is?17:33
melodie(Connected to both the tv and the computer.)17:33
BluesKajati catalyst is a GUI for controlling your graphics card17:33
melodiedo you have link to the download or something17:34
u19809does anybody know how I can install the qt 32bit libs on a 64bit system using kubuntu packages ?17:34
BluesKaju19809, make sure you have ia32 installed17:35
u19809I have but I am seem to be missing some plugins (mysql driver)17:36
BluesKajmelodie, have you set the tv to the hdmi input connected to your pc ?17:36
BluesKaju19809, running a server/database ?17:37
u19809no regular natty desktop.17:37
u19809on a laptop17:37
u19809In fact I have the libs on my desktop system but i cannot remember how I did install them ... if i didn't just copy them over that is17:38
melodieBluesKaj: Yes, i have the "Catalyst Control Center for the ATI graphics Accelerators" Downloaded. And yes, it is on the correct input channel that my hdmi input is on.17:39
melodieBluesKaj: I'm guessing since I already seem to have everything hooked up right and stuff that my graphics card just isn't the greatest.17:41
BluesKajmelodie, no \17:43
BluesKajit's a good card , it probly needs the right driver  or settings17:44
melodieBluesKaj: Then do you know how I can fix that?17:44
BluesKajlook in the catalyst settings for hdmi graphical output or some such17:45
melodieFor the settings it will only let me chose single display desktop on the display manager. I'm signed in as adminastrative  but I still don't know how to change that setting...17:50
BluesKajmelodie, is the catalyst showing the correct card model and resolution ?17:54
melodie1280 * 1024 is the resolution and it is showing the correct card model...17:57
BluesKajmelodie, what kind od tv ? flatscreen-widescreen or ?17:59
melodieit is a VIZIO 19 by 19 inches17:59
BluesKajok , so it's a pc-monitor type ...vga will work well...I thought it was a large flatscreen 16x9 aspect ratio tv18:01
BluesKajdue to the hdmi connections18:02
BluesKajthose aren't hdmi melodie , those dvi i believe18:03
melodieIt has both a HDMI port and a vga port in the back18:06
melodiealong with the standard deffinition plugs18:07
BluesKajmelodie, but your card specs say DVI18:07
BluesKajDVI looks a bit like VGA , but witj more pins and the cables usually have white connectors , VGA are blue18:09
melodieSo I need to get DVI to HDMI since I have a DVI port in the back, or should I just get a VGA and use that. I mean, not having sound is something I think I can work my way around18:09
BluesKajdoes the Vizio have built ib speakers ?18:10
BluesKaj19x19 inches is an odd size18:11
melodieI know, its pretty small... Its my step brothers, dosnt matter though. I just need to get this working.18:12
BluesKajwell then obviously it connects both audio and videom thru the vga18:13
melodieI thought VGA only did video18:13
BluesKajis there an audio plugin on the monitor ?18:14
melodieThere are the normal red and white ones, but not on the RGB(VGA) input channel, no.18:15
BluesKajmelodie, did the monitor come with cables , if it did , use those... i have to go ...BBL18:19

TheEvilPhoenixi think it has something to do with indexing the files  first22:45
TheEvilPhoenixand then loading the info into the filemanager22:45

tonywadewhat makes kubuntu ant different to ubuntu?22:59
g0rstonywade: kubuntu runs on kde and ubuntu is on gnome . Ubuntu is the standalone os , there are several desktop environments on it.23:02
tonywadeis there any difference to someone like me who does not know what u are on about?23:04
g0rstonywade: well the difference for you is the userinterface, the gui with which you use the OS .23:04
g0rstonywade: its the biggest difference for you.23:05
tonywadeok well i have ubuntu how can i try it out?23:05
g0rstonywade: ifyou are a beginnier, its better to go with kde or else gnome ( if you prefer simplicity)23:05
g0rstonywade: ubuntu has gnome  it runs out of box without any configuration like kubuntu.23:06
g0rstonywade: burn an iso file and install it on your computer23:07
tonywadeburn that sounds dangerous23:07
g0rstonywade: compile an iso file onto a cd or dvd disk and install your os by booting from the cd23:08
