jcgsHi :) does anyone know what identities are for in kmail? I've got 3 email accounts which I'd like it to check, do i need different identites for them?00:34
claydohjcgs: no, you can use the same identity for more than 100:42
jcgsclaydoh: what's the difference between doing that, and having separate identities?00:43
claydohjcgs: i use identities for each of my emails as I use them for different purposes, so i have different signatures, different names, etc00:44
claydohone has my fullname, while another uses my nickname for xample00:44
jcgsok :) thanks, but does it mean that things are sorted differently for example, or auto selecting the right address to send from00:45
claydoheach email usually has its own inbox, or can be set up that way00:46
claydohi think you pick a default mail address00:48
claydohbeen a while since I used a single identity00:48
claydohreplies are sent using the originating email,  not sure how  you compose using a particular address00:52
claydohwithout having identities00:53
Rokixzhi, any discussions about kmail? :D00:57
RokixzI cannot view inbox in my imap, only spam :D00:58
RokixzI get errors like "Unable to append item flags."00:58
jcgsCheers claydoh, I went for the different identites anyway, seems it's pretty easy to switch e-mail accounts between than01:05
claydohyes, jcgs it is01:05
claydohRokixz: not sure on that error, but if you haven't I do suggest upgrading to kde 4.8, which will fix a lot of error messages, problems in kmail01:07
claydohtho not necessarily all01:08
claydohi have not seen that problem myself01:08
claydohRokixz: filtering may be broken, may want to try disabling that to see if it a cause of that for you01:10
Rokixzclaydoh, I did upgrade to 4.8, I'll try to disable the filtering :)01:10
claydohwost case scenario Rokixz would be to delete and recreate the imap account :(01:11
Rokixzok, just recreated gmail acc01:12

arlen89does anyone have experience with removing dual boot linux/linux grub2 config so that the second system is removed--i.e., i have kubuntu/xubuntu and wish to remove xubuntu?08:37
arlen89more specifically--is it as simple as modifying the grub.d file to remove references to the xubuntu parts, and then using a partition editor to remove the partitions and expand the kubuntu partitions over it?08:39
Daskreecharlen89: yes pretty much08:45
ubottuGRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 - See !grub1 for releases before Karmic (9.10)08:45

skierpageI have a bunch of files on my Windows laptop next to this Kubuntu machine. What's the easiest way to network them so I can directly copy them to directories on Kubuntu? How do I turn on a ssh/sftp daemon, or export a home directory as a network share?09:40
skierpageSystem Settings > Sharing doesn't have anything.09:41
skierpageSearch help.ubuntu.com for network sharing "11.10" coughs up nothing useful. It's so trivially easy from Sharing in Mac OS X...09:45
skierpageI guess I install openssh-server and f*** around with `sshd [-46DdeiqTt] ` <sigh>09:54
ts2or, enable sharing on the windows box and just copy the files over09:56
skierpagets2, good point, though when I've enable folder sharing on Windows Vista the disk grinds away for ages, dunno which would take longer ;-)09:59
ts2well windows doesn't use NFS by default, so you'd need to install putty to share files from windows if you want to use ssh10:01
skierpagets2, I already have WinSCP (based on Putty I think). Pleasant surprise: I installed openssh-server package, `sudo service ssh restart`, and sftp me@<localIP> works!10:05

abhijeethi guys.. recently i switched from ubuntu to Kubuntu...12:23
abhijeetI am stuck with a basic task.. I am not able to add desktop icons in kubuntu12:23
abhijeetwhen i dragging and dropping icons from kmenu, it is not working..12:23
Mamarokabhijeet: if you go to the menu, right click on the application you want to add an icon for and there you have the option12:24
abhijeetMamarok: I is adding the icons to the desktop but to the desktop folder.12:25
abhijeetMamarok: how can i add the icons to the desktop folder.12:25
Mamarokyou can't add icons to the desktop folder, that is showing the content of a particular folder only12:25
Mamarokadd the icons to the desktop, and in the desktop folder options choose to display the desktop12:26
Mamarokbut it doesn't really make much sense that way :)12:26
abhijeetMamarok: okay....12:27
abhijeetMamarok: another doubt.. how can i resize the icons size in the desktop??12:39
Mamarokhover over it, there is a option bar appearing, the icon on top allows you to resize12:43
abhijeetMamarok: okay.. actually it is already smallest... check this link: http://picpaste.com/snapshot1-WCtfPlye.png12:48
abhijeetmy icons are not properly aligned..12:48
abhijeetI faced the same issue some time back12:48
abhijeetMamarok: anyway I can align them properly??12:52
yofelabhijeet: there is a grid desktop option as desktop type, maybe that helps. I've never used it though12:55
abhijeetyofel: where is that option?12:56
yofelright click on desktop -> Layout:12:56
yofeler, settings -> Layout:12:56
abhijeetyofel: it's not there.. I can only see 1 View 2. Mouse action12:57
yofelabhijeet: at the View part, there's a drop down box for the Layout12:57
yofelunless that has changed since 4.7...12:57
abhijeetyofel: yes.. i think it has changed in 4.8..12:58
photonhi. does kubuntu support 3d video files if I have a 3d video card/monitor?12:59
abhijeetI am able to resize icons by hand but I d't think its correct process.12:59
abhijeetyofel: why this KDE is so hard to use...12:59
yofelit was there in 4.7 though, possibly called differently12:59
abhijeetI am not even able to do the basic tasks.12:59
yofelI'm fine with it - and I have the icons in the panel anyway12:59
abhijeetyofel: panel layout is missing from that list13:00
yofeluh, the panel settings are in the panel settings. As every panel can have it's own settings13:00
yofelit's not everything in the same window13:01
yofelfor application I often use I usually just stick them on the panel by right clicking their taks manager item and selecting "show a launcher when not running"13:03
yofelwin7 style13:03
abhijeetyofel: I think most settings are there in the folder view..13:03
abhijeetyofel: let me check if that works13:03
yofelin which folder view btw. - the folder view widget, or do you have your desktop type set to show the desktop folder contents?13:05
yofelhm yeah, the grid desktop can align stuff13:07
photonhi. does kubuntu support 3d video files if I have a 3d video card/monitor?13:13
sleepyphoton no problem use vlc :)13:15
sleepyvlc can play 3d whitout any problem :)13:16

Tm_Tlorecaster: depends of your problem (:17:33
BennyPlayboyHi everyone!17:33
BennyPlayboyI'm looking for some help17:34
ubottuAvoid following your questions with a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !attitude17:34
Tm_Tno, not that...17:34
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience17:34
lorecasterthanks, tm_t, I tried to install KDE Plasma Widgets to my GNOME3 Ubuntu 11.10 install... and now I've got broken packages. I tried doing a "sudo apt-get install -f" and I've got a page of errors. I've got a pastebin for you if you like.17:35
Tm_Tlorecaster: show it and we'll see (:17:35
Tm_Tlorecaster: oh, interesting17:36
lorecasterI appreciate it. I'm not exactly green at linux... but I haven't done any heavy programming in nearly ten years. GNOME3 is everything I ever wanted, if only AUTOCAD2012 worked as well in virtualization as it does in native win7... but that's another matter entirely. I have fallen in love, again, with ubuntu... and I am honoured to have what help you guys can render.17:37
BennyPlayboyToday I installed Kubuntu on my laptop, but it seems as my neworkcard isn't supported... I tried to update drivers while using an ethernet cable, but no luck. On my Windows partition I can use it, so there's nothing wrong with the card itself.17:37
BennyPlayboyAnyone know what the problem may be?17:37
ubottuWireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs17:37
Tm_TBennyPlayboy: I'm not good with that stuff so hopefully the docs ^ there do help17:38

BennyPlayboyYeah, but it's not installed with Kubuntu, and once I update drivers I still don't have the opportunity to eneble wireless network. In fact, I can't even see the "WLAN Interface"17:58
BennyPlayboyI've tried updating/installing drivers with no luck...17:58
Tm_Tlorecaster: what happens if you do apt-get update and try install again that kde-runtime?18:01
Tm_Tlorecaster: if it still fails, show me your kubuntu-ppa-backports-oneiric.list18:01
Guest84719sorry to butt in, maybe this has already been mentioned - have you definitely checked it is on at a hardware level (i.e. if it is a laptop is the wireless 'on')18:03
lorecasterI really admire you guys... I wish I had the time to learn this much base programming structure again18:04
BennyPlayboyGuest84719: Yes, it is. It's even working on Windows, which really scares me, as Windows sucks compared to Linux.18:06
BluesKajBennyPlayboy,  , i'm quite sure it's a kernelmodule that just needs to be loaded , try sudo modprobe b4318:08
lorecasterthis is what I get for playing around and installing new programs :P I'm learning a lot though! :D18:08
BennyPlayboyBluesKaj: Uhmm... It didn't do anything at all?18:09
BluesKajBennyPlayboy,  , good thay means no errors18:10

Tm_Tlorecaster: for some reason, your kde doesn't get upgraded as a whole18:11
BennyPlayboyOkay, will do18:11
lorecasterTm_T: That's about the only thing I was managed to figure out on my own :P I'm not as green as I used to be... but I'm far from the programmer I wish I was.18:12
Tm_Tlorecaster: so I suggest you add more kde packages to your "sudo apt-get install <list of packages>" until you get the breakthrough18:13

James147arshinator: apper (kpackagekit) use to work well, though I tend to use commandline19:41
James147Xevios: install chromium form the repos... its basically the same as google chrome but with out the branding (and a few closed features)19:41
XeviosYeah. But i have all my pass'es with tabs in google acc.19:42
asfyxiaxevios: do sudo apt-get install chromium-browser in the terminal19:43
James147Xevios: it shares most of the code base with google chrome... it also has the sync feature... if just a few minor thing taht are missing (like embedded flash)19:43
Xevioshow i can install *deb* packeges19:52
Xeviosby clicking?19:52
asfyxiaxevios: if you try to install google chrome from a .deb file, you don need to. It's in the repos, try chrome-browser.19:54
James147Xevios: you should beable to click it in dolphin, or you can run "sudo dpkg -i <file>"19:54
Xeviosasfyxia , skype.19:55

ubottuarshinator: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo19:56
szal!root | arshinator19:56
ubottuarshinator: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo19:56
arshinatorubottu | szal : actually i want to access the root directory....so i want to go su...but not able to do so19:58
ubottuarshinator: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)19:58
szalarshinator: what root directory?19:58
arshinatorszal: the root folder?19:58
arshinatori want to access that19:58
szaldefine 'access'19:58
James147arshinator: use "sudo -i" to get a root shell19:59
ARGHhhello, does anybody use avant-window-navigator on Kubuntu? I 've got problems with icons, probably i must install gnome icons...can anyone explain me how ?19:59
asfyxiaxevios: when you downloaded a .deb-file, you can install it with Ark20:00
pvivekkubuntu Software Updates stuck at 61% from more than an hour. any suggestions?20:00
James147asfyxia: um, no, ark dosnt install programs from debs... it can only extract archives (which debs are, but thats not how you should install progrmas)20:00
James147pvivek: kill it, run the update in a terminal20:01
Xeviosfuck him. update stucks mostly all time20:01

arshinatorJames147 : i mean i want the administrative privileges20:02
hroi "anybody know" the command line to start up the window decoration config?20:02
James147arshinator: ??20:03
hroimy system settings pannel seems a bit sparse , and doesnt a have this config20:03
DarthFrogarshinator:  "sudo -i" gives you root privileges.  At that point, you *are* root.20:03
arshinatorJames147: well when i just write "su" in the terminal it asks me for the password, and when i supply it the password which i set for my login, it says authentication failure20:04
arshinatorso which password is it asking for that time20:04
DarthFrogarshinator: "su" requires a root account.  "sudo" doesn't.20:04
BluesKajarshinator, just use sudo20:04
pvivekJames147:thanks helped20:21

go^hello..i've just installed Kubuntu but banshee doesn't start O_o it loads and then crash..does anybody know why?20:26
=== vivek is now known as Guest19971
=== Guest19971 is now known as pvivek
asfyxiago^: banshee isn't a standard KDE-program. Why don you use Amarok or Clementine?20:30
go^asfyxia, amarok = too complicated, too slow..i'll try clementine thank you :)20:30
go^asfyxia, i've just installed kubuntu and banshee is default mp3 player ;)20:30
BluesKajgo^, that's a carry over from your gnome install20:31
go^BluesKaj, i haven't gnome mm20:31
go^probably was in some dependency :)20:32
go^(like avant-window-navigator)20:32
BluesKajyou did in the past then20:32
go^no BluesKaj , i've just installed Kubuntu :)20:32
BluesKajgo^,  depends how you unistalled gnome20:32
go^any other "small" music player? clementine is quite slow too :/20:33
asfyxiaclementine is a low-profile version of amarok20:34

skierpageWhat's the command to update to Kubuntu 12.04 alpha 2?22:59
skierpagehttp://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?57044-Upgrading-11-10-to-12-04 suggests `sudo do-release-upgrade -f kde -d` , but after extracting precise.tar.gz, "can't load kde (No module named kde)"23:00
skierpageOh wait, it is upgrading, it popped up "Distribution Upgrade". It's a Gnome app with no mention of KDE or Kubuntu, but it's doing something...23:01
poyntzthere's no xorg.conf in oneric, so I was wondering, if I wanted to add a line to xorg.conf how do I do it?23:02
poyntzI want to add http://paste.kde.org/200018/23:03
skierpagepoyntz, I haven't tried it, but https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config ?23:04
skierpageThat's a poor explanation because you're already running X, so http://askubuntu.com/questions/4662/where-is-the-x-org-config-file-how-do-i-configure-x-there23:06
ts2poyntz: you should be able to add sections in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/23:06
ts2rather than creating an entire xorg.conf23:06
poyntzts2, skierpage : if I add http://paste.kde.org/200018/ to 50-vmmouse.conf - will this cause issues?23:10
poyntz50-vmmouse.conf is in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/23:12
ts2or just place it in another file, like /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/52-vbox.conf23:12
poyntzskierpage, ts2 - thanks :)23:15
poyntzskierpage, ts2 - do I need to restart X?23:16
poyntz- to get it to work23:16
ts2you'll want to log out, then choose "Restart the X Server" from the login menu (where it has the shutdown options)23:16
skierpagepoyntz, very likely23:16
poyntzalright, fingers crossed23:18
poyntzthanks for the help :D23:18
poyntzts2, skierpage : didn't have any luck :S23:31
poyntzI don't think X is looking at my new .conf file23:31
=== damaltor_ is now known as damaltor
skierpageSo poyntz, you just added that one bit to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d ? I guess next thing is to look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log contents.23:47
skierpagepoyntz, I know little, but it sounds like you can exit X (stop your window manager), run the command to generate a config, and see if it has the bit you added to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d, that might help debug.  And then you could use the new Xorg.conf file, though the directory of bits and pieces is more flexible.23:49
