zacariashow do you change your default login manager when you have severl desktops? I'm running Kubuntu but, when I logout, I always have GDM.00:04
Torchzacarias: might be sufficient to just modify /etc/X11/default-display-manager00:06
Torchzacarias: haven't tried though00:06
zacariasTorch: I'll try that. Tx00:08
ZacariasTorch: Well, I tried that and I ended up with no DM. I just have a prompt, I made login, but no X. How do I start X?00:17
TorchZacarias: if that does not immediately work, i suggest you undo your changes.00:17
TorchZacarias: try sudo dpkg-reconfigure kdm00:19
TorchZacarias: it might ask if you want to set kdm as your default display manager00:20
ZacariasYes, I did it from the prompt. Now I'm trying to reboot. It will probably work.00:20
TorchZacarias: it does not for me because i don't have any other dm installed, but i dimly remember... ok.00:20
ZacariasTorch: ok, I'll try that also. (I'm writing from a Mac). There it is, the GDM.00:21

Guest9457I'm trying to upgrade to kubunutu 11.10 from ubuntu 10.10 without doing a clean install how would I go about doing that?02:16
EvilResistanceGuest9457:  you'd have to do incremental upgrades...02:17
EvilResistanceGuest9457:  are you trying to switch from KDE to GNOME/Unity, or do you want to keep KDE?02:17
Guest9457I'm already using GNOME and want to go into KDE02:18
EvilResistanceGuest9457:  ah.02:18
Guest9457I'm going Ubuntu ===> Kubuntu02:18
EvilResistanceGuest9457:  i see.  you can *start* by installing kubuntu-desktop from the repos02:18
EvilResistancei saw your statement and reread your older one02:18
Guest9457how would I go about doing that?02:19
EvilResistanceGuest9457:  in terminal: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop02:19
EvilResistancenote you'll have a TON of stuff that gets downloaded02:19
EvilResistance(the gnome stuff will still exist, i know there's a method for removing it but i dont remember what it is)02:20
Guest9457it will leave a bunch of kde jive in with my gnome right?02:20
EvilResistanceit'll add a bunch of KDE stuff to your installation02:20
EvilResistancethe GNOME stuff will still exist...02:20
EvilResistancebut it wont display well in KDE02:20
Guest9457okay that's fine02:20
EvilResistanceafter its done installing all the stuff from kubuntu-desktop, you'll need to do release upgrades twice... once to get to 11.04 Natty, and then another time to get to 11.10 Oneiric02:21
EvilResistancethat command is sudo do-release-upgrade02:21
EvilResistanceBUT BEFORE YOU RUN THAT02:21
EvilResistanceback up your files02:21
FloodBotK3EvilResistance: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.02:21
Guest9457oh yeah I meant 11.1002:22
EvilResistancein case the thing explodes and your system breaks.02:22
Guest9457I'm already on oneiric02:22
EvilResistanceGuest9457:  ah.  if you're on oneiric, just install kubuntu-desktop02:22
EvilResistancethen you'll be fine02:22

bdizzleI also need help permanently setting a system variable path. I tried using export, but it has a case of memory loss as soon as I close the terminal window09:40
bdizzleor another idea would be to somehow get terminal to acknowledge the command "root" to open CERN's ROOT so that I don't have to go into konsole, type ". /$HOME/root/bin/thisroot.sh" and then "root" each time I want to use the program09:50

SeanTaterWhen reinstalling (k)ubuntu, do you need to install/setup anything in order to detect  an existing software RAID array12:59
eichihello. I changed /etc/hostname but not /etc/hosts -> now sudo seems not to run anymore! what can I do now?13:14
eichithats why I cant change the /etc/hosts now ;D13:15
SeanTatereichi: for future reference I think this is what the program "hostname" is for. ;P But the only way i can think of that you could change /etc/hosts is by booting into recovery mode and then selecting a root prompt when it boots13:19
SeanTaterThere might be a way of getting around it though --13:19
SeanTaterMaybe you could open it with a graphical text editor? I think they use policykit instead so it might work, but I wouldn't swear to it13:20
eichiSeanTater: which gui editor I can use, which promts for password?13:23
eichibut no problem, I use recovery mode13:24
eichiits just kubuntu in virtual box ;) boots in seconds13:24
eichihm, I thought ESC gives my grub promt?13:26
DerezzedGoateichi: you may need to press and hold earlier13:27
eichiDerezzedGoat: okay, sounds like a reaction game ;) I will try13:28
eichihm. maybe its a problem with virtualbox, that it pipes the ESC to late to guest system :(13:29
SeanTaterFailing that, you could always boot the install CD and edit the file from there.13:31
SeanTaterYou'll still need to use sudo but I don't think there's a password on the install/live cd13:32

ubottuIf an APT front-end crashed and your database is locked, try this in a !terminal: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »13:40
ts2^ the first command kills anything that may be locking the dpkg database13:41
eichits2: oh it was dkpg thought apt-get has this too ;)13:42
ts2eichi: apt-get is just a front-end to dpkg anyway13:42
eichiI know13:42
eichidoes not mean, that it pipes *all* comments that exists in dpkg to dpkg. know one knows...just the man page ;)13:43
caius_when it`s finished  i will try again to install software13:44
caius_i will let you know13:44
caius_thanks guys13:44
caius_it works!13:45

I already have Kubuntu 10.04 installed in dual boot with Windows 7 and I am trying to boot 11.10 from the live CD so I can completely remove both 10.04 and Windows 7 and only run under 11.10. The loading goes pretty well, there is no error in the files (according to the live CD) but when I23:13
Hunty6chose either to install or boot from live CD, all I get is a ''Broken screen'' where I only have big white & black squares along with lots of pixels. Any chance someone knows how to get it to work ? Thanks for the answer!23:13
