DaskreechMDesade: Hello?00:37
DaskreechStill need help?00:37
naught101when my screen resolution changes, sometimes I end up with a "piece" of plasma sitting over the top of all my windows - eg, right now, it's on the left hand side of my primary display, and about 30px wide, and just contains some of my background image. anyone seen that before?00:48
Daskreechnaught101: switching desktops doesn't get rid of it?00:50
naught101Daskreech: I only have one desktop enabled00:52
Daskreechnaught101: Ah try pressing alt+ctrl+F1200:52
Daskreechwait about 20 seconds then press it again00:53
naught101Daskreech: no, did nothing00:56
DaskreechBah that should do a full screen refresh00:56
Daskreech are they functional or just artifacts of painting?00:56
naught101Daskreech: I can right click, and I get the context menu for the desktop, so I guess it's functional00:57
naught101Daskreech: might be related to me having two monitors plugged in00:57
naught101of different sizes, although the plasma bar width doesn't seem to have any relation to the sizes00:57
naught101Daskreech: my girlfriend's laptop also did this, and I had to find /.kde -iname "*plasma" -exec rm "{}" \; and then log out and back in to get it working again00:58
naught101Daskreech: but I'd prefer not to have to do that every time00:59
naught101is there a wa to restart plasma?00:59
Daskreechnaught101: I think that you would only need to mv ~/.kde/share/config/plasmarc ~/.kde/share/config/plasmarc.broken01:00
Daskreechnaught101: sure kquitapp plasma-desktop && sleep 4 && plasma-desktop01:00
naught101Daskreech: that worked, except of course I lost all my plasma settings. Might try moving it back and see what happens01:05
Daskreechnaught101: :)01:06
Daskreechi highly recommend moving before rm01:06
naught101Daskreech: yeah, yeah :P01:06
naught101Daskreech: thanks, that worked, got all my settings back. Funny, I actually tried restarting my girlfriends laptop last time, and that DIDN'T work..01:07
naught101luckily she didn't have much customisation when I killed her plasmarc :)01:07
Daskreech:-) It's the worst part of Linux I think01:08
MDesadehang on, just walked in the door01:09
naught101Daskreech: what's that?01:09
DaskreechMDesade: Cool01:10
Daskreechnaught101: It customizable01:10
Daskreechit is01:10
MDesadeyou read my problem???01:10
DaskreechMDesade: Yes you are still in that state?01:11
naught101Daskreech: definitely makes it harder to maintain, I guess... lots of wacky bug reports01:11
Daskreechnaught101: Also makes it suuuuuuuck when you lose your settings01:11
DaskreechI spent 6 years setting that up!!01:11
naught101yeah, although I don't usually have it so customised that I can't get it back to approximately what it was within an hour..01:12
Daskreechyou are young :)01:12
MDesadeblack screen, only a mouse pointer01:13
DaskreechMDesade: does alt+f2 work?01:13
MDesadealt F2 makes some titlebar popup01:13
MDesadeits the system activity01:14
MDesadeso, yes, it works01:14
DaskreechMDesade: The system activity?01:15
Daskreech that should be ctrl+Esc01:15
Daskreechalt+F2 shuld get you a floating bar at the top of the screen01:15
MDesadewell, there was an icon for "system activity" and the other icon brings up "available features"01:15
Daskreechif that comes up type plasma-desktop and press enter01:15
MDesadeyes, it brings it up01:15
Daskreechnaught101: at some point you have cron jobs and custom scripts, aliases, kwin rules for windows, data stores for things to speed stuff up01:16
DaskreechMDesade: are you ok now?01:16
MDesadepressing enter does nothing01:17
DaskreechMDesade: when you typed in plasma-desktop did it show any entries ?01:17
DaskreechShould say run plasma-desktop beneath it01:17
Daskreechok type konsole and then press enter01:17
Daskreechnaught101: worst part is that you can scrub your whole machine and install a brand new distro and as long as you keep your home directory all that comes back.01:18
DaskreechSo you lose sight after a while of what's defaults or what you made until you use a computer that doesn't have everything exactly as you want it01:19
Daskreechthen you want to kill everyone who isn't you01:19
MDesadeyep, in a terminal window01:19
Daskreechwhy why would you not have ctrl+shift+I?? It makes your life so much easier Raaaaaage!01:19
DaskreechMDesade: Ok in there type plasma and press tab twice01:20
Daskreechtell me if it gives you a list of options01:20
MDesadeplasmaengineexplorer plasmapkg plasma-windowed plasma-overlay plasmawallpaperviewer01:21
MDesade5 choices01:21
Daskreechthat's interesting01:21
MDesadewhat SHOULD be there?01:21
Daskreechok can you give me a moment/01:21
MDesadesure man, i appreciate this01:21
Daskreechplasma-desktop or plasma-netbook01:21
MDesadenope, neither of those01:22
DaskreechMDesade: can you try sudo apt-get install kdebase-workspace ?01:23
Daskreechin konsole01:23
Daskreechit should ask for you password01:23
DaskreechLet me know if it asks to confirm the install01:24
naught101MDesade: have you tried manually typing in plasma-desktop to the alt+f2 bar (krunner?)?01:26
naught101might just be hidden at the bottom of the list01:27
MDesadeok, which would you like me to try? the apt-get? or?01:28
Daskreechnaught101: it should be the only thing in the list01:29
Daskreech and konsole doesn't have it listed01:29
DaskreechMDesade: the apt-get please01:29
MDesadesays it already is the newest01:30
MDesade0 upgraded, 0 installed01:31
DaskreechMDesade: could you try sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop01:32
Daskreechyou can just press up on Konsole01:32
MDesadei was just gonna ask if there is a newer version to upgrade to?01:32
Daskreech it will give you back the last command and you can replace kdebase-workspace with kubuntu-desktop01:32
DaskreechMDesade: I don't know what version you have now. 11.04 ?01:33
MDesadeok, 38 packages installing01:33
Daskreechhmm ok01:33
MDesadeINCLUDING plasma-desktop (just saw it whiz by01:33
DaskreechMDesade: sweet01:34
MDesadeok, should i reboot?01:34
Daskreechwhen it's done press alt+f2 and run plasma-desktop01:34
MDesadewell, hellllooooo nurse....01:35
DaskreechYou can logout now and log back in01:35
MDesadeall my icons are still there... sweet01:36
Daskreechshould start kdeinit401:36
MDesadeim back up and running...01:36
MDesadeTHANK YOU!!!!01:37
DaskreechMDesade: cool :)01:41
DaskreechNot sure what font you changed but enjoy01:41
MDesadehaha! i think this happened from installing asterisk/freepbx/FOP in a script called "freedoh"01:42
MDesadewhich then tells you to "apt-get purge mysql*" which takes about 40 packages and deps with it01:42
DaskreechAh yea that would do it01:43
naught101yep, that sounds like a bad idea01:43
MDesadethe dude who wrote the script is a bit of a control freak...01:43
dockhornhi, i haven't used IRC much in quite a while...  i'm looking for help with my system.  i'm running kubuntu, 10.4 i think, and it's more or less functional but does poorly with my video card setup.  is there someone who can give me a hand?02:49
dockhorn...anybody there?02:52
dockhornis this a good place to ask for help with getting my video card behaving better?  i'm running kubuntu 10.4, i believe02:56
Daskreechdockhorn: Sure what is the problem?03:07
dockhorndaskreech: hold on, i'm new to this irc client...03:09
dockhorndaskreech: ok, so, when i installed the OS it was able to figure out my video card (on the motherboard) and my monitor well enough03:09
dockhorndaskreech: but it wasn't able to get full resolution on my main monitor at the same time that i had a second one plugged in to the second port (DVI first port, VGA second port)03:10
dockhorndaskreech: so i tried installing the fglrx drivers, and that kind of hosed things,03:10
DaskreechHow so?03:10
dockhornso i tried removing them, and now it's still not working well03:11
Daskreechah how did you install fglrx ?03:11
dockhornum, nothing showed up on the second monitor if they were both plugged in, and the first monitor could only operate on low-res03:11
dockhorni found instructions online, installed proprietary drivers, lemme see if i can find the page i used...03:12
DaskreechOh hmm03:12
dockhorn(what does !jockey mean?)03:12
Daskreechprobably should have run jockey-kde03:12
dockhornwhat's that?03:13
DaskreechI thought ubottu might have known that03:13

dockhorni just run jockey from the command line?03:14
dockhornso i ran it, it found the proprietary driver i had installed and is asking me if i want to activate it03:16
dockhornlast time i tried activating it, it didn't improve things.  if i recall correctly, i rebooted, and it never got to the screen where i could log in.  i rebooted several more times, and it finally let me log in, but the video settings weren't any better than before, so i deactivated it.03:17
