a4hello folks... I just installed kubuntu (switched from ubuntu) and for some reason kubuntu detects my wireless network but wont connect even though I'm sure i have the passphrase and settings correct (I have verified them on windows)... and I never had this issue with ubuntu03:46
a4any ideas?03:46
Daskreecha4: What version of KDE?03:46
a4um the default 11.04 kubuntu version daskreech?03:47
DaskreechHmm ok03:50
Daskreechtrying to remember if that's NM 0.8 or NM 0.903:50
TheEvilPhoenixnetwork-manager is version 0.8.* in Ubuntu 11.04, just saying03:52
TheEvilPhoenixand network-manager-kde is... um...03:53
TheEvilPhoenixi *think* 0.903:53
TheEvilPhoenixso i think its dependent on which they have installed03:53
a4kubuntu would have the same base drivers as ubuntu wouldnt it and if it can detect the network why cant it accept the proper settings03:55
a4i verify the settings and then the network icon shows that its configuring and it gets to about 75% then a window pops back up saying "secrets" for the network... with the pass phrase and settings03:57
a4and regardless if i click ok or retype the settings it does the same thing over and over03:57

GirlyGirlProblem on Kubuntu 11.04 with KDE SC 4.7.1 . Sometimes plasma crashes and when relaunched desktop effects seem to mess up the appearance of the Panels07:13
jussiGirlyGirl: have you filed a bug on bugs.kde.org ?07:13
jussikatsrc: planet kde is pretty good :)07:14
jussikatsrc: ie. http://planetkde.org/07:14
katsrcjussi: thank you!07:14
ArnoldHmm, KDE SC 4.7.1 in Kubuntu 11.10 Beta 2 seemed more stable for me.07:14
jussikatsrc: thats a nice agregate of many blogs, so you should find what you want htere07:14
GirlyGirljussi: No I have only a launchpad account07:15
ArnoldThe only crash I get mostly is at the end, when either shutting down or logging out.07:15
GirlyGirlkatsrc: Kubuntu.org itself07:15
jussiGirlyGirl: I suggest you sign up for one there then, as its where kde bugs that arent packaging go.07:15
jussi(at least for the ppa stuff you seem to be using)07:16
GirlyGirljussi: It mostly happens only with the Air theme07:17
katsrcthe best feature about Kubuntu 11.10: "Kubuntu introduces Kubuntu-Low-Fat-Settings: a collection of configuration options that reduce memory usage and even speed up KDE's loading time. This will help Kubuntu run better on older, lower-end systems. "07:52
=== af_ is now known as Guest89450
Arnoldkatsrc, that's one interesting way to speed up KDE from Kubuntu alright. However, I stumbled upon another way, but I'm not sure how stable it is so far.07:54
ArnoldWhich is running Kwin using GLES backend.07:54
ArnoldK Window Manager - "This package was compiled with support for OpenGL ES 2.0, before installing please make sure your video driver supports it. This package is part of the KDE base workspace module."07:55
GirlyGirlArnold: I can confirm that07:56
katsrcArnold: nice, how would I go about setting that up?07:56
katsrccompile kwin-gles?07:56
GirlyGirlkatsrc: In system settings desktop effects07:56
ArnoldNot in Kubuntu 11.10. You'll get a different package for it.07:56
ArnoldYou need to install kde-window-manager-gles which replaces kde-window-manager.07:56
GirlyGirlkatsrc: But you need kde 4.7. and up07:56
katsrcArnold: i'm on 4.7.1 and 11.0407:57
katsrcjust installing the package07:57
Arnoldkatsrc, Kubuntu PPA might have that package aswell. You can give it a try.07:58
katsrcArnold: seems like backports had it07:58
ArnoldGirlyGirl, that's the stock OpenGL 2.0. This one is OpenGL ES 2.007:59
ArnoldES stands for Embedded Systems.08:00
katsrcwasn't there a project for KDE-lite?08:01
katsrcwith a desktop having lightweight Qt apps also08:01
GirlyGirlArnold: I see let me try that then... but how do I know if the card supports GL-ES08:02
Arnoldkatsrc, I know a project with that specification, an Arch Linux user or so is working on that project.08:02
ArnoldGirlyGirl, http://www.khronos.org/conformance/adopters/conformant-products/08:02
ArnoldLook for OpenGL ES 2.0 tab and search for your graphics card model.08:03
ArnoldAnd it will say if it's OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible, or just 1.108:03
katsrcArnold: that's awesome08:03
ArnoldIf it's 1.1, then it won't work. Atleast according to the KDE developers.08:03
Arnold[sidenote]  Flash Player 11 was officially released [/sidenote]08:04
GirlyGirlIf 2.0 without the es works ?08:05
ArnoldGirlyGirl, not quite. OpenGL 2.0 and OpenGL ES 2.0 are quite different. They have their own API and specifications.08:05
ArnoldTell me what kind of graphics card you have, and I can look it up for you.08:05
GirlyGirlArnold: I'm quite sure my Nvidia will do it not sure about intel though08:05
ArnoldGirlyGirl, I see. In that case, you can tell me both of their model type, and we'll find it out soon enough :)08:06
GirlyGirlASUS Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT , Intel GMA 950 (27AE), and XFX Nvidia Geforce 8500 GT08:08
ArnoldGirlyGirl, GeForce 8xxx and GeForce 9xxx are both qualified to support OpenGL ES 2.008:10
ArnoldAnd now for the Intel one.08:11
GirlyGirlArnold: Ok thanks08:11
ArnoldGirlyGirl, sorry. It's pretty much out of the question :/08:13
katsrcArnold: it sure is snappy08:14
Arnoldkatsrc, which settings have you tried so far?08:15
katsrcArnold: default08:17
katsrcno shaders, direct rendering08:18
Arnoldkatsrc, yeah, I really enjoy it being snappy and also uses way less memory for compositing, unlike some other compositors out there (Compiz, you rascal!)08:18
ArnoldOh, by the way, here it is. The Quantum Project: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=125088&p=108:19
ArnoldIt is one KDE4/QT4 fork. Not sure if this is the one you mentioned earlier.08:19
katsrcArnold: it was the first one: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=12500408:21
katsrcQuantum Project looks like it's doing something entirely different08:21
katsrci don't know about javascript on my desktop?08:21
Arnoldkatsrc, ah, yes. This Quantum Project was created to make a more 'lightweight' KDE installation, less bloated and whatnot.08:23
GirlyGirlArnold: Intel GMA 950 fail http://paste.ubuntu.com/702127/ How can I revert?08:26
ArnoldGirlyGirl, you replaced kde-window-manager with kde-window-manager-gles?08:27
=== ghost is now known as Guest30147
ArnoldGirlyGirl, have you replaced kde-window-manager with kde-window-manager-gles before?08:32
GirlyGirlArnold: no08:32
ArnoldSo what did you mean by reverting?08:33
GirlyGirlArnold: I installed kde-window-manager-gles, obviously it removed the no gles one08:34
ArnoldGirlyGirl, then you'll replace kde-window-manager-gles with the stock kde-window-manager.08:35
GirlyGirlArnold: sudo apt-get install kde-window-manager should do it08:35
ArnoldGirlyGirl, yep. That will remove kde-window-manager-gles, in favor of kde-window-manager.08:36
ArnoldThis might explain more about the OpenGL ES 2.0 based Kwin's purpose: http://blog.martin-graesslin.com/blog/2011/07/running-kwin-with-opengl-es-2-0/08:37
GirlyGirlArnold: Reverting done on the intel system. Other systems work fine with GL-ES08:40
ArnoldGirlyGirl, great! And what about the performance? Any improvement, even at the slightest?08:41
GirlyGirlArnold: I don;t know the Nvidia systems are fast machines generally08:42
ArnoldGirlyGirl, I see. In any case, the OpenGL ES 2.0 Kwin should bring some improvements nonetheless. That one is not based on OpenGL 1's fixed pipeline anymore.08:44
ArnoldIt wasn't pure OpenGL 2.0 as I thought.08:45
GirlyGirlArnold: Intel stated incomplete GL-ES support maybe with newer drivers it will work in future?08:46
ArnoldGirlyGirl, I think the problem lies on the hardware, rather than software. Meaning that a hardware as old as a GMA 950 one is way too old to handle OpenGL ES 2.0 functions, so that's why it says it's incomplete.08:47
GirlyGirlArnold: Who knows its a 2009 card actually its a 945G Express08:48
ArnoldGirlyGirl, from what I was able to find out, is that pretty much only GMA 500 and GMA 600 graphics cards have OpenGL ES 2.0 support. The earlier ones don't.08:52
ArnoldAnd I can't find information about raw GMA graphics anywhere. Unless it's a PowerVR one (for embedded systems).08:53

adwait_sharmaWhich is the best IRC client for Kubuntu 11.04?16:48
genii-aroundadwait_sharma: Most people use Konversation or Quassel. There are also others which are not specific to Kubuntu such as XChat, command-line clients like irssi. It all depends on what you find "best" for your own style of work-flow.16:56
ubottuUsually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.16:56

macothen pin or lock the version in synaptic22:14
macoer oh right this is the kubuntu channel22:14
genii-around!info firefox-4.022:14
ubottuPackage firefox-4.0 does not exist in natty22:14
macopin it in /etc/apt/apt_preferences22:14
macoman 5 apt_preferences22:14
Daskreechhi maco22:14
BarkingFishmaco, thank  you :)22:14
macokeep in mind this means you would not be getting security updates for it22:15
macoyouve been warned22:15
BarkingFishI don't give a hoot. The security is no good to me anyway if the browser itself is about as useful as a wooden leg to a scarecrow :)22:17
BarkingFishNo windows media player plugin... no shockwave plugin, no moonlight or mono plugins... no point really :)22:17
* maco blinks22:20
macothere's a windows media player plugin for linux?22:20
xcvHello everyone. I have had a problem with the kde partition manager when i have tried to resize a ntfs partition. I have selected it, set the new size, and apply, but it has stopped at 66% for more than 3 hours, so i have clicked 'cancel' and it has hanged. I have had to kill the process and now that partition is displayed as 'unknown'. What can I do?22:24
xcvplease, I need help urgently22:26
gomiboymaco try this: mozilla-plugin-vlc22:34
gomiboyxcv: is the partition the same size as before or the 'new' size now?22:35
xcvgomiboy: no, it shows the size i specified. I have googled a bit and fdisk displays HPFS/NTFS, but windows doesn't boot (win7)22:36
gomiboyxcv: restore it to the previous size with fdisk22:38
gomiboyxcv: that is: delete the partition and recreate it to the old size22:39
xcvhow can i know exactly the previous size? i just found this with grep in /var/log: http://pastebin.com/mq9q6M4c22:41
gomiboyxcv: were you shrinking or enlarging?22:41
xcvgomiby: i was shrinking it22:41
DaskreechWhy would a Scarecrow not want a wodden leg?22:41
xcvgomiboy: i will need a bit of help with fdisk, i have never used it so seriously22:42
Daskreech!info partitionmanager22:42
ubottupartitionmanager (source: partitionmanager): A partition management utility. In component main, is optional. Version 1.0.3-0ubuntu2 (natty), package size 428 kB, installed size 2856 kB22:43
gomiboyxcv: you touched sda4 also?22:43
xcvgomiboy: i don't think so, i have kubuntu in it and i have been able to reboot22:43
xcvgomiboy: so, do you think that i will be able to restore my lost partition?22:45
gomiboyxcv: then just delete sda3 and recreate. fdisk will give you the max free size then (assuming sda3 was 'in touch' with sda4)22:46
xcvgomiboy: would the log info be useful for that operation?22:47
gomiboyxcv: maybe... doing this can't get things worse anyway... :P22:47
xcvgomiboy: that's true... how do i begin with fdisk?22:47
gomiboysudo fdisk /dev/sda22:48
gomiboyd 322:48
xcvsudo fdisk /dev/sda3?22:48
gomiboyno, sda22:49
xcvgomiboy: now?22:50
gomiboyxcv: type d to delete, type 3 when asks part number22:50
xcvyes, yes22:50
xcvi have just deleted it, what should i do now?22:50
gomiboytype n for new22:50
gomiboyuse the default numbers for size22:50
xcvit asks me the first cylinder for now22:51
gomiboyjust press enter22:51
xcvit asks me for the last cylinder22:52
gomiboyenter again22:52
xcvwill it overwrite my current partitions or write until sda4?22:52
gomiboyxcv: it will use only the free space, we will check later22:53
xcv65667 seems a bit round to me, it was just that lol22:54
xcvdone, now it should be repaired?22:54
=== szal is now known as rest
gomiboyso sda4 should start at 65668 right? :P22:54
=== rest is now known as szal
gomiboyno, one thing22:54
gomiboytype t22:55
gomiboythen 7 for ntfs22:55
gomiboyno, wait22:55
xcvdone too22:55
xcvwhat is wrong?22:55
gomiboydone for partition 3 right ?22:56
xcvyes, don't worry :)22:56
gomiboyok... :P22:56
genii-aroundSo then basically just w22:56
gomiboynow press p and pastebin the status22:56
TheEvilPhoenixsounds like either the windows failtextinstaller or the textual installer for Linux...22:57
TheEvilPhoenixi assume the second?22:57
gomiboyno, it's just fdisk, the old school partition editor :P22:57
TheEvilPhoenixno GUI?22:57
* TheEvilPhoenix raises an eyebrow22:57
gomiboynaaaa :P22:57
xcvhere you have it: http://pastebin.com/dAdbUQYD22:58
genii-aroundAh, Acer. Gotta love those hidden partitions22:59
gomiboyxcv: mmm didn't you say that the last cylinder was 65667? why it is 52920?23:00
xcvi don't know, it said 65667, it seems like it has ignored me23:01
xcvshould i retry that?23:01
gomiboyxcv: you exited fdisk?23:01
xcvan error23:01
gomiboythen do it again...23:02
gomiboyagain, d 3...23:03
xcvyes yes, i did it23:03

xcvis it an error or is it normal?23:05
gomiboynormal warning23:05
xcvokay i was a bit scared23:05
xcvmount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /media/win723:06
xcvis it okay?23:06
xcvcould not mount it: http://pastebin.com/JA4u3ym123:07
gomiboyxcv: then you'll have to restore your backup, because everyone has a backup when messing with partitions, right?23:08
xcvit was a 500 GB partition, and i had no information at all in it23:09
xcvi will reboot and try to boot windows, i have nothing to lose23:10
xcvi'll be back in a moment23:10
gomiboygood just reinstall... or you can see it as a message to stick with linux forever.. :P23:11
xcvi use linux a lot, but assassin's creed and imperium 3 don't work with wine :(23:11
xcvsometimes i like to play for an hour or two, and wine is not perfect :/23:12
xcvwait, i'm rebooting23:12
gomiboyheheh that's a common problem... and now i'm going to play deus ex... :P see you :D23:12
MDesadei have a question: when i log in to my kubuntu 11.04 64-bit desktop, it flashes the icons showing services loading, then the screen goes black and nothing but the mouse cursor is visible... how can i fix this?23:25
MDesadei have only changed the font to something larger, so i am happy to reset the config back to stock, if someone could clue me in as to how23:27
xcvgomiboy: are you there?23:42
