poyntzI tried sudo Xorg -config and Xorg 1: -config and it's stuffed up my display. How can I fix it?01:30
poyntz- by stuffed up, I mean things which are supported by my Graphics card now aren't01:30
poyntz- whitelines, virtualbox doesn't work (aka, when i load up the OS, it will open the login screen but I can't hit Windows)01:31
poyntz- I don't even have a xorg.conf file01:32
poyntzso no idea how I've managed to do it01:32
poyntzit couldn't be this could it? - http://paste.ubuntu.com/829548/01:33

ses1984i am about to install 11.10 and i was wondering if the installer will partition my ssd correctly, i heard partitioning an ssd optimally and correctly01:37
ses1984often involves tweaking the start and end points of the partition precisely01:37

ses1984that's a "simple" guide to partitioning ssd drives in linux and it is many pages long. does the installer check all that stuff or is it better to partition manually?01:44

I can't seem to get my webcam to work in this new distro... it exists in the sound settings, registering properly, and even when it first installed it asked if i wanted to use my webcam to save my profile picture... now it won't work in skype OR Cheese. I heard routine updates can kill drivers... it's a GearHead webcam, not Logitech (notorious driver issues with those, i read). Any takers?05:04

pritojhello :)05:48
pritojI'm  new to irc05:48
pritojso could you plz tell me how i use quassel to connect to freenode05:48
photonyou ARE connected to freenode.05:49
pritojbut the config says i'm connected to irc.ubuntu.com05:50
pritojand i added irc.freenode.net to the list05:50
pritojbut i can't seem to use it05:50
photonirc.ubuntu.com redirects to irc.freenode.net05:50
photonit's basically one and the same.05:50
pritojsry about that. noob mistake05:51
photonyou can /join #freenode if you are still not convinced. :)05:51
pritoj:) oh no i'll take your word for it.... just don't ask me to go to bash and type in rm * -R05:52
pritojso I don't have much programming experience05:53
pritojjust php05:53
pritojI know other languages but I don't know where to use them05:53
pritojcan you suggest a project which can be understood by me05:54
pritojC/C++ or python doesn't matter05:54
photonwhat do you mean, suggest a project which can be understood by you? what exactly is it what you want to do? and btw, you are in the help channel for Kubuntu, there are other channels like ##programming #c++ #python ...05:55
pritojA project which is not so complex that i'll be baffled by the so many files that i'll lose interest05:57
pritojand yes I'm sorry about posing this queston here05:57
photonyou still haven't told us what you actually want to do? if you want to learn programming languages, start by writing your own simple programs...05:58
pritojI have done all the "text book" programs05:59
pritojthe point is i want to contribute to a proper project, the main reason i use php is I can do a lot very easily and put it up on server06:00
pritojbut when it comes to proper programming langs i can't get past those simple programs06:00
pritojI tried to study up on tomahawk player06:01
pritojbut I couldn't get my head around all the files06:01
pritojso i want a simpler project06:01
photonif you can't get past simple programs and still don't have much programming experience besides PHP, I don't think you'd be useful to a more complex project. I cannot suggest a simpler project, however. sorry about that. but again, other channels might be of more help.06:02

OxymoronTm_T: In acroread, the copy worked perfect, hmm.10:03
OxymoronAnother problem in Okular is to copy text from multiple pages when you need to mark the text it doesnt scroll to another page, can only copy from one page xD10:04
Tm_TOxymoron: I recall I had been copying multiple pages before10:10
OxymoronTm_T: i can do with Pg Up and PG Dn and copy all etc. But i cannot start mark with mouse on one point and then drag the marking area from one page to another :S10:11
Tm_Tatleast it works some way for you, I guess it doesn't matter with what tools10:14
OxymoronWell yeah it works, but quite annoying with things that doesnt work. Like the new Dolphin in KDE 4.8 that should be faster, rather slow down and freeze my system xD10:16
Tm_Thmmm, it's relatively fast here (:10:18
Tm_Tis those animations that causes the issue?10:18
OxymoronTm_T: Not sure, I just now it freezes sometimes.10:19
OxymoronTm_T: Frustrating, because freezes is one thing I do not want on Linux ... and expect from Winblows.10:22
fenderovna_hi all10:27
* TSK hasn't had a freeze on Linux, Mac, or Windows in ages.10:33
TSKI count myself lucky, cause freezes annoy me utterly.  nvidia drivers used to cause me freezes on Linux allatime back in the old days.10:34
OxymoronTSK: How do you do? :O10:40
OxymoronTSK: 8 Core CPU, 10 GB RAM, SSD disk or what? :D10:40
TSKOxymoron: I have a dual core CPU with 4 gig of RAM and about 4 TB of SATA HD space, and Kubuntu hasn't frozen on me in forever.10:47
TSKFor about a month, this machine had Windows 7 on it, until I got sick of it and wiped it in favor of Linux, but Windows never froze on it either.10:47
TSKAnd at work we use Mac OS X which is Unix based and also hasn't froze on me for ages.  Modern operating systems seem pretty good that way these days as long as the hardware is up to par.10:48
OxymoronTSK: Well, not working well on my laptop with Intel i3 latest 2.1 GHz, 4 GB RAM DDR3, Intel HD Graphics 3000 and 500 GB HDD.10:51
OxymoronBoth Winblows and Blinx fails.10:52
TSKHonestly, I've personally never had much luck with Linux on laptops myself, except my Acer Aspire One netbook.  For some reason that took Kubuntu flawlessly and all the hardware just worked without complaint.  Power management, wifi, bluetooth, everything.10:55
TSKFirst thing I did when I got the thing home actually was to boot it once in Windows, once in Android, and then boot it from Kubuntu USB and wiped both the other OS's and installed the Linux permanently.  :)10:56
OxymoronTSK: Well it worked flawless on my old desktop PC earlier with Dual Core, 4 GB RAM, SSD and some crappy nVidia card-10:58
OxymoronThe problem seems to be low RPM on laptop, high heat in the laptop, crappy graphics or crappy graphic software in Linux, I dont know.10:59
TSKnVidia's drivers are pretty good these days, but a couple years ago they were real hit-or-miss.10:59
TSKHeat can be a real issue with laptops I know.  Have you tried one of those USB powered cooling pads?  You could test if that'd help before buying one by using your laptop on a box fan or somesuch for a while.  :)11:00
OxymoronTSK: It is not very hot yet, pretty new laptop and the shell is in aluminium.11:03
OxymoronI guess then the real problem is the laptop, how it is built11:04
OxymoronWould need to be cooler with awesome SSD, and not any fans at all in the laptop, only integrated chips for everything etc.11:04
TSKHonestly, I wouldn't know.  My Acer is the first laptop I've ever had luck with Linux on.  Desktops and towers have always worked pretty excellent, but until recently laptops have been nothing but a pain for me on Linux.11:06
OxymoronTSK: Yes, laptop is PITA. Same problem on both my Asus and Acer, both with NEW hardware, no luck.11:09
OxymoronCompanys generate lot of money on laptops that doesnt work xD11:09
TSKIt's just plain bizarre that some laptops from Acer work with Linux with ZERO hassle, and others from the same company will fight to the bitter end no matter which OS you throw at them.11:10

DasKreecHFujiontheCloud: Which Mac?18:18
DasKreecHI meant Intel   Mc or PPC?18:19
DasKreecHyes you can you just need a Bootloader. Refit should work18:21

FujiontheCloudcan i use my magic trackpad with kubuntu btw is there support for it?18:29
FujiontheCloudok ty for the answer btw DasKreecH18:29

FujiontheClouddoes kubuntu have any unique peripherals like the magic trackpad?18:31
ts2though, it's best to avoid system() like the plague18:31
Geraldi use sprintf in matlab18:31
DasKreecHFujiontheCloud: You can use it :) I'm not sure how deep the support for it is18:31

tbruff13I am looking to see if ubuntu advantage supports kubuntu19:19
DasKreecHDarthFrog: well depends. if the help is with Kubuntu then probably!19:19
DasKreecHtbruff13: Could you give some more details?19:19
DarthFrogDasKreecH: But until he lets us know what help he needs ...19:19
tbruff13i am working with my local school board to put ubuntu into schools, and I thought that I would use ubuntu19:19
tbruff13but i have to use a LTS19:20
DasKreecHDarthFrog: Yeah there are a lot of problems in the world people need help with19:20
* DasKreecH needs new shoes19:20
DasKreecHStupid big GNOME sized feet :-(19:20
DarthFrogtbruff13:  10.0 and the upcoming 12.04 are LTS.19:20
DasKreecHtbruff13: Right. What advantage are you looking for?19:20
tbruff13so i chose 10.04, but what i realized if i used regular ubuntu teachers would have to go from gnome 2.32 to unity19:21
tbruff13and that would be hard for them19:21
DarthFrogtbruff13: And if you're trying to put it into schools, Ubuntu, rather than Kubuntu, is probably a better choice.19:21
tbruff13DarthFrog: yes but KDE19:21
DasKreecHDarthFrog: I'd say edubuntu is better but ...19:21
tbruff13is easier for teachers to learn19:21
ts2lies! Kubuntu is always the better choice, just in general19:21
tbruff13and no unity19:21
* DarthFrog agrees with DasKreecH19:21
DasKreecHtbruff13: How long till you have this choice to make?19:22
tbruff13DasKreecH: they told be edubuntu was not supported19:22
DarthFrogKubuntu is better for power users.  Ubuntu is better for the hoi polloi.19:22
tbruff13by ubuntu advantage19:22
ts2what, exactly, is "ubuntu advantage"?19:22
tbruff13DarthFrog: in my experience with KDE it is more windows like19:22
DasKreecHtbruff13: This is true. of course if you have a contract with canonical that changes things somewhat19:23
* handheldCar has had a couple computers that hang when Kubuntu tries to shut down.19:23
DasKreecHIf you don't then "support" doesn't have the same connotation19:23
tbruff13DasKreecH: bottom line i need to use KDE so do i have to install ubuntu and then install kde19:23
tbruff13and then remove ubuntu-desktop19:23
DasKreecHtbruff13: no there is a kubuntu CD19:23
tbruff13or can i just start with Kubuntu19:23
ubottukubuntu is Ubuntu with the KDE Software Compilation instead of !Gnome. See http://kubuntu.org for more information - For support join #kubuntu - See also !kde19:24
ts2tbruff13: I guess you'd need to ask Canonical if the support includes KDE or not19:24
tbruff13DasKreecH: i understand that there is a disc19:24
tbruff13but do they support it19:24
DasKreecHThis is on the desktop I presume?19:24
DarthFrogtbruff13:  You'd have to ask Canonical as they're the ones who provide the Ubuntu Advantage paid (I presume) support.  I tend to doubt it, though.19:25
DasKreecHtbruff13: Well as far as I know Canonical will accept support contracts for Kubuntu but you have to ask them specifically.19:25
DarthFrogAs in Kubuntu started as an after-market offshoot, not an official branch.19:25
tbruff13DasKreecH: so should i start work on kubuntu or use ubuntu with KDE installed19:25
DarthFrogtbruff13: Ask Riddell, he's the founder of Kubuntu.19:25
tbruff13DarthFrog: how19:26
DasKreecHDarthFrog: I am19:26
ts2DarthFrog: that's not true19:26
tbruff13Riddell: are you here19:26
DarthFrogts2: ?19:26
DasKreecHtbruff13: Thre is no difference between kubuntu installed on top of ubuntu or starting with kubuntu19:26
DasKreecHThey use the same packages and the same servers19:26
ts2DarthFrog: Kubuntu is just as official as anything, it's just not the "flagship" product19:26
tbruff13DasKreecH: other then branding19:27
tbruff13which might be the issue19:27
DarthFrogDasKreecH: Actually there is.  One will also have GNOME installed, the other won't.19:27
DarthFrogts2: True now but not at the start of Kubuntu.19:27
ts2DarthFrog: so, if I install XChat, it's not Kubuntu any more?19:27
tbruff13DarthFrog: no i wont i would have to remove ubuntu-desktop19:27
DasKreecHDarthFrog: <tbruff13> DasKreecH: bottom line i need to use KDE so do i have to install ubuntu and then install kde and then remove ubuntu-desktop19:28
DarthFrogts2: Now you're being ridiculous.19:28
DasKreecHts2, DarthFrog: Take it to #kubuntu-offtopic thanks19:28
DarthFrogtbruff13: Then you should install Kubuntu so you don't have to do the extra work.19:28
tbruff13DasKreecH: okay can anyone please help you dont know how many hours i have spent working on this this is my senior project19:28
tbruff13for school19:28
ts2DarthFrog: yes, I know :), but my point is that if Kubuntu is officially supported (and it's an LTS after all), then it stands to reason that Canonical would have (at least basic)  commercial support for it19:28
tbruff13and the school board is interested19:28
DasKreecHtbruff13: What is your question? :) can Kubuntu be supported by Canonical?19:29
tbruff13DarthFrog: i know you will hate me but are there windows themes for kde19:29
tbruff13will ubuntu advantage work with kubuntu19:29
ts2tbruff13: ask Canonical19:29
DarthFrogtbruff13: No hate.  Use what you need for the purpose.19:29
DasKreecHtbruff13: Yes it will but you have to ask canonical19:29
tbruff13ts2: that is what i am trying to do19:29
tbruff13i cant find a number that is online now19:30
ts2tbruff13: see https://forms.canonical.com/sales/19:30
DasKreecHtbruff13: The largest rollout of supported Ubuntu was done using Kubuntu if reports are to be trusted19:30
DarthFrogDasKreecH: Really??  Wow.19:30
Novellwhat package is solid-powermanagement found in ?19:31
DasKreecHDarthFrog: canonical doesn't release figures or clients so it's hearsay but you can get pretty substansial support19:31
tbruff13DasKreecH: how much ram does kubuntu need19:31
DasKreecHtbruff13: Depends on what you need to run obviously but I would suspect 500 at a min to not teach the school children cursewords19:32
DasKreecHyou would probably need to tune it or run it through a LTSP19:32
DasKreecH1GB should be good once they don't start going crazy with desktop effects and opening Cantor scripts19:33

DasKreecHtbruff13: yes quite a few. I would advise that you don't rely on those except in cases where people need them to continue work.19:43
DasKreecHtbruff13: Just for the perspective of maintaining them19:43
tbruff13DasKreecH: i was going to create scripts for removing19:43
tbruff13before upgrading19:44
DasKreecHtbruff13: treat this the same as migrating from Windows to Linux. It's almost a new platform so do your initial layout and timelines for how youwill maintain this over a 4 year period19:44
tbruff13DasKreecH: maintaining it is not my job my job is getting it started19:45
DasKreecHIf you can find people who are willing to do a pilot get them on KDE as quickly as you can and have them give you feedback19:45
tbruff13the job of Canonical is to maintain  it19:45
DasKreecHtbruff13: ha ha no they have to support it. The school has to maintain it19:45

pawieckiHi, i have a problem with setting the right resolution with refresh rate. Now i have 1024x768 and it blinks with 60hz. It's a regular LG CRT monitor so my eyes are about to explode... I'm using Kubuntu 11.10 with nvidia proprietary drivers and in system settings or nvidia's x server settings app i can't set resolution higher than 1024x768, but the worst thing is that there's nothing higher than 60 Hz which is pretty uncomfortable21:40
pawieckiIs there a way to set resolution or refresh rate manually to some sane values? On the resolution i'm using currently the monitor should use up to 85Hz but it's only 60 and another option is 50... This problem appeared few days ago, probably with some updates21:44

DasKreecHtbruff13: I couldn't tell you. I don't know what's making it freeze. when you are booting there is a moment when it says press any key for the menu22:42
tbruff13DasKreecH: virtualbox has a bios22:42
DasKreecHpress your any key and then press ctrl+E then the second line I think and press ctrl+E again to edit it22:43
DasKreecHat the very end of the line type nosplash22:43
tbruff13ok i have a snapshot without virutalbox guest additons22:43
tbruff13is there anyway i can have it come back with a splash22:44
tbruff13when i compress it to a cd22:44
tbruff13and install it on another computer using remastersys22:44
DasKreecHtbruff13: sure it may be something Vbox related or it could just be something silly like a midi server not liking the (virtual) video card22:46

FloodBotK1tbruff13: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.23:00
tbruff13DasKreecH: how did i flood23:01
DasKreecHtbruff13: if it is installed there should be a remoe button beside the name. Choose something like kalzium and install it23:01
DasKreecHthen see how it gets a remove button beside the name23:01
tbruff13DasKreecH: would it be stupid of me to install synaptic23:02

DasKreecHfair enough23:08
tbruff13DasKreecH: how can i make it look better23:08
tbruff13synaptic is easier to use then kpackage kit23:08
tbruff13but i would much rather put ubuntu software center on the disc23:09
tbruff13for teachers23:09
DasKreecHinstall software-center then23:11
DasKreecHWhy are the teachers being given rights to install what they want? :)23:11
tbruff13DasKreecH: they are assigned computers to each teacher23:11
DasKreecHAh ok23:11
tbruff13the teacher is allowed to do what they want within reason23:11
tbruff13but for thin clients and labs23:12
tbruff13it is different23:12
tbruff13we dont have any thin clients for now23:12
tbruff13will LTSP work with Kubuntu23:12

DasKreecHLTSP will work23:16
tbruff13DasKreecH: will kde's extra ram requirements be an issue23:20
tbruff13and is there anyway to scale those down23:20
DasKreecHSure just stop using resources that you won't need23:20
tbruff13no effect23:20
tbruff13would be a start23:21
DasKreecHIf you are not going to be using mail or have a shared contact facility like LDAP then turn off Akonadi23:21
DasKreecHif you are not going to be doing indexing then nepomuk and strigi can be turned off23:22
tbruff13DasKreecH: ok this will all be done on another virtualbox of kubuntu made for ltsp23:23
tbruff13DasKreecH: does kmail work like thunderbird23:25
DasKreecHumm... I guess.23:25
DasKreecHIt gets mail23:25
pawiecki i have a problem with setting the right resolution with refresh rate. Now i have 1024x768 and it blinks with 60hz. It's a regular LG CRT monitor so my eyes are about to explode... I'm using Kubuntu 11.10 with nvidia proprietary drivers and in system settings or nvidia's x server settings app i can't set resolution higher than 1024x768, but the worst thing is that there's nothing higher than 60 Hz which is pretty uncomfortable. Is there a23:25
pawiecki way to set resolution or refresh rate manually to some sane values? On the resolution i'm using currently the monitor should use up to 85Hz but it's only 60 and another option is 50... This problem appeared few days ago, probably with some updates.23:25
pawieckiAny ideas? :/23:32
DasKreecHpawiecki: if you know the settings just put them in an xorg.conf23:33
pawieckiwhere's this file?23:37
DasKreecHpawiecki: in /etc/Xorg but you have to create it23:53
DasKreecHCurses thought I pressed enter on that a long time ago23:53
