ale`hi, I just launched the update and now I cannot install kde-workspace-bin, it says it has unmet dependencies. what's going on?00:03
DaskreecHale`: what depends is it looking for?00:06
ale`DaskreecH: http://paste.ubuntu.com/827098/00:12
DaskreecHale`: you are installing KDE 4.8 ?00:20
ale`DaskreecH: I don't really know, I just ran the update tool ^^;00:22
DaskreecHha ha did you try the KDE 4.8 beta ?00:22
ale`DaskreecH: no, btw, I just checked kdebase-bin and it's 4:4.7.400:23
DaskreecHale`: can you pastebin /etc/apt/sources.list ?00:25
ale`DaskreecH: http://paste.ubuntu.com/827110/00:25
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit00:31
ts2ignore the dumb bots please...00:31
DaskreecHale`: can you tell me if <ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ > gives you anything?00:32
Unit193Heh, normally do after telling someone00:32

EvilResistancethen why were the floodbots claiming so?00:37
ts2because they are broken atm00:37
ale`DaskreecH: yes, I have quite some files http://paste.ubuntu.com/827117/00:38
EvilResistanceso i should be poking #ubuntu-ops :P00:38
EvilResistancesaying "FIX THE FLOODBOTS IN THE WORLD!"00:38
EvilResistancethey're broken in #ubuntu too00:38
ts2they are fine in #ubuntu00:39
DaskreecHale`: can you pastebin apt-cache policy kde-workspace-bin00:39
ts2and I'm working on the ones in here00:39
DaskreecHts2: Where is your gif of a man with shovel that says under construction? :)00:39
ts2DaskreecH: I'm currently hitting the floodbots over the head with it00:40
ale`DaskreecH: http://paste.ubuntu.com/827125/00:40
ale`DaskreecH: uhm, I see the problem, it's taking it from ppa :O00:41
DaskreecHale`: disable that PPA then00:41
ale`I can't even remember the reason why I added that ppa00:43
ale`ahh, I remember now, probably a gtk3 engine00:44
EvilResistancets2, they actually broke a few days ago, there were 8 timeout quits and it still does that00:44
DaskreecHEvilResistance: long as they are fixed by tomorrow00:45
ts2EvilResistance: there's not much to be done about timeouts, they happen from time to time00:45
EvilResistanceyeah, but it shouldnt trigger !netsplit for them00:47
ale`DaskreecH: I removed the ppa, and tried to install kubuntu-desktop, but it's complaining like this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/827128/ . Is there a way to let it do its job (i.e. downgrading the dependencies) without too much hassle?00:50
ts2EvilResistance: the timeout has nothing to do with it triggering netsplits00:51
DaskreecHale`: You did an apt-get update already right?00:57
DoctorPepperhi guys !!00:58
DoctorPepperis anyone running kde 4.8 on here ?00:58
ale`DaskreecH: yes :-)00:58

DaskreecHale`: what's the apt-cache policy say for kde-workspace-bin now ?01:00
ale`DaskreecH: http://paste.ubuntu.com/827136/01:01

LinkmasterIm wanting to write a research paper on the viability of FOSS/OSS being not only a good idea, but a viable replacement for the commercial OS's/programs. can anybody help point me in the right direction with something like an archive, or reputable sources?01:07
DoctorPepperbut everything  was working fine  until i did an update yesterday01:09
ale`DaskreecH: http://paste.ubuntu.com/827145/01:10
DaskreecHDoctorPepper: Ah Well maybe review the update log? or run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade01:10
DaskreecHLinkmaster: What?01:11
DaskreecHale`:  sudo apt-get remove kde-workspace-kgreet-plugins kde-workspace-data && sudo apt-get upgrade01:11
LinkmasterDaskreecH: uhh..wanna write a 8-9 page research paper on how linux would be better to use then windows essentially01:12
DaskreecHLinkmaster: right. what level of research paper is this?01:12
DaskreecHI'm guessing not tertiary level?01:12
LinkmasterDaskreecH:  collegle level course01:13
Linkmaster*that is, college in highschool01:13
DaskreecHha ha right ok may want to limit some of that to use cases01:13
Linkmasterbut the teacher used to teach at the USNA, so he teaches it like a college course, and i want to get a jumpstart on the paper01:13
Linkmasterwell yes, it would be for our standard homeowner(the biggest war between microsith and linux right now)01:14
DaskreecHThats a little like saying an F1 is better to use than a Windstar01:14
DaskreecHyou aren't really going to prove that to anyone in an 8 page paper. Come up with some use cases and lets go from there01:14
ale`DaskreecH: it complains about other packages in the same way... I guess finally It's easier to just manually reinstall those packages with the correct versions01:17
ale`It's incredible there is no tool that does this automatically01:17
DaskreecHale`: wellsome were installed already Tht's what the lib/dpkg/status is01:17
DaskreecHale`: also for some reason you have some KDE packages uninstalled completely soo not sure what happened before this but needless to say watch your PPAs more carefully01:18
LinkmasterDaskreecH: dang? still not simple enough..true, with reflection, you are correct..could you join #kubuntu-offtopic so that we dont flood the main support channel?01:18
DaskreecHAptitude may sort some of that out :)01:19
emHow do you edit the Kmenu so that you can add a category like "programming" and put programming applications in it?01:25
emso that it shows up with the other application categories01:25
DaskreecHem: Right click the menu and choose edit01:26
ale`DaskreecH: thanks for suggesting aptitude ^^; first time using it, worked great01:26
Linkmasterem: when you install programming stuff, it'll automatically do it. if not, rightclick on it, 'edit applications' and you get box to be able to edit literally everything about the menu to your desires01:26
emDaskreecH: I saw that but from that how do you set it to show up or not?01:26
DaskreecHIf there is a program in there it will show up if there isn't a program then it doesn't01:27
emthere is a catgegory in there called 'education' but no applications show up in the menu or that01:27
em"education" doesn't show up.01:27
emIt just starts with "Games"01:28
DaskreecHIf there are no applications under education then the education category will not show up01:28
Linkmaster^ as he said, you have to specifically install something through muon(or whatever you use), or add it manually01:28
emOh i thought those were applications, I guess they are just subcategories01:28
emIs there a most logical  place to put a 'programming langauges" category?01:29
DaskreecHWell I would hope a programming language does not turn up in your menu01:29
Linkmasterem: the biggest advantage about the menu editor is that you can change it to what suits *you*01:29
emDaskreecH: I mean like IDEs and programming tools, enviroments etc.01:31
DaskreecHem: that would be under as development category I think01:31
Linkmasterem: put them where you want (: but the system normally picks development, as he ^^ said01:32
emIs there a way to give a new item an icon?01:34
DaskreecHem: Click the icon button in the Menu and choose a new picture01:36
emThe icon button?01:45
DaskreecHem: In the edit menu01:46
emoh thank you.01:49

Vakodoes the font and size of the webpages when using kubuntu, depend on the resolution of the video card?05:57
Kimlarouxit depends on the resolution your screen is set at05:58
Kimlarouxsince fonts are fixed size relative to the number of pixels, the more pixels you have per square inch, the smaller the font is05:58
Vakoor is there a way to make the font bigger to be able to READ what it says?05:59

metralha761email and address books dont have anything about kde18:22
ct529metralha761: what? they are definitively in .kde (the directory)18:26
