jmichaelxany reason why an acer netbook should not be used as a home server?05:08

DaemonFCSurgeon General's Warning: Vista7 Crippleware Edition is known to cause cursing, spitting, punching holes in the wall next to you, an inability to change your desktop wallpaper, and eventually an extra $80 being spent on the upgrade05:11
DaemonFCno, there's no reason you can't use it as a home server05:12
DaemonFCit's not going to respond well to heavy workloads though, but that's just because they tend to come with ultra low power processors that are pretty weak05:12
DaemonFCWindows would actively prevent you from using it in that role though05:13
DaemonFCI'm surprised you can still find netbooks anywhere, Microsoft's trojan horse placeholder OS turned people off to the whole concept05:15

bng_now im stuck with polish KDE, anyone able to advise? thansk08:54
meanmommyyou can try clearing your .kde files08:55
meanmommymaybe you can install english language package08:55
bng_thans meanmommy. but i am unable to find an english language package08:56
bng_since kdes default language IS english, im assuming08:56
bng_ill tryin clearing the .kde files though08:56
meanmommyi think this package language-pack-en08:57
meanmommybut if you clear your .kde files all your configuration will be cleared08:57
meanmommyincluding kdewallet08:57
meanmommyand your wireless password08:57
bng_actually i just found a british english language pack08:58
meanmommythis is my first time in irc08:58
meanmommyisnt there a package called language-pack-en08:59
bng_but its british english08:59
bng_i guess i got it resolved, even though its 'british'09:00

nafgHow do I "reboot" the whole kdepim/akonadi setup? It's pretty broken and I'd like to purge everything and install it with a clean slate.09:07
meanmommyyou can clear your .kde configuration09:08
meanmommybut all your configuration will be reset to the defaults09:08
nafgWas that to me?09:08
meanmommyfor all application not only akonadi09:08
meanmommyyes it is for nafg09:08
nafgWell that's a bit problematic!09:09
meanmommyor you can reinstall akonadi and all the packages09:09
nafgRight, so the question is: Exactly which packages09:09
meanmommydo you have muon installed?09:10
meanmommyin muon right click the akonadi package and click remove all09:10
meanmommyclick mark for removall09:11
meanmommywell i find it easy to recreate my configuration09:11
meanmommylook in the folders in .kde09:11
nafgIs that sudo apt-get purge akonadi?09:11
meanmommyyou can try that09:11
meanmommyyour problem may lie in the depencies of akonadi09:11
meanmommyso then run sudo apt-get autoremove09:12
meanmommyto remove all the depencies of akonadi09:12
meanmommyand then install akonadi09:12
nafgNo, autoremove would remove *dependents* of akonadi. Dependencies would have to removed before,09:13
meanmommyno when you run sudo apt-get remove akonadi09:14
meanmommyit only remove the akonadi package09:14
meanmommyautoremove removes the depencies09:14
meanmommynot the dependents09:14
nafgNo way! That would leave you with a broken system!09:14
nafgLet's prove it...09:14
meanmommywell apt-get will never allow you to get a broken system09:15
meanmommywhen you remove akonadi all its dependents obviously have to be removed09:15
meanmommybut its depencies do not have to be removed09:15
ramapte 09:16
ramaptehere i have changed my name nafg09:16
ramaptefrom meanmommy to ramapte09:16
nafgDependent means something that akonadi depends on. Dependency means that akonadi depends on it.09:17
ramapteanyway apt-get protects you from having a broken system09:17
ramaptedependent means some package that requires akonadi09:17
nafgUmmm... kde-workspace depends on akonadi, so this is not an option.09:18
ramapteanyway what is the problem with akonadi/kdepim09:18
ramapteDoes akonadi fail to start?09:19

theManag3RWell... Where should I start... Well, short version: I'm running certain tests using Eclipse and they work great. But when I'm returning my project to Gobling, it gives me only 54/150 points... My course assistant wasn't able to help me and the deadline is in 3 hours17:09
periclesIsn't this a settup problem?17:10
periclesIf they work fine in Eclipse17:11
theManag3RI have absolutely NO idea where the problem is. Even the assistant said that the code seems fine but he wasn't able to say anything else. And the deadline is in 3 hrs and my whole course depends on this one fucing project17:11
periclesYou can't use Eclipse in your course?17:12
periclesCan't you*17:13
theManag3RNo, we have to return the projects to Goblin which, sometimes, can be quite tricky17:13

BluesKajheh, usually those kind of geeks are i=one trick ponies , lots of knowledge about linux etc , but their social graces are usually non-existent, otherwise they wouldn't laugh17:30
periclesEclipse is a great tool. And, if you solved the problem... yeah, if he doesn't accept your code, he is a stupid man17:30
periclesComputer science != you know use many tools17:31
theManag3Rthe problem is, there like 300 students on this same course and it's impossible for him to check all the projects individually. that's why we need a tool like Goblin where to return the homeworks17:42

Aniaris anyone having focus stealing issues suddenly today?19:54
Aniartalking about it in #kde, but I updated today (only saw google-crome-stable in the update list), and suddenly I can't click to focus any window at all19:55
AniarI'm having a weird focus stealing (I assume) problem since ubuntu update this morning of google-chrome (which isn't running)...19:59
AniarI can't click and affect anything outside of the window that has mouse focus, but I *can* alt-tab and keyboard-activate other windows19:59
AniarI've changed focus stealing prevention to all 5 settings (off/low/medium/high/extreme), and have checked my window-specific rules (including the default xv rule, which I disabled temporarily)19:59
Aniarhave also changed the "focus follows mouse" settings to all 3 versions, both with stealing prevention set to "off" and "high", with no effect20:00
Aniarok, uninstalled google-chrome... problem went away on logoff/logon20:25
Aniarso... is it that the uninstall fixed it, or there's some setting that doesn't take effect immediately in kwin?20:25

Tm_Trysiek|pl: I think the team didn't like the idea of collecting money20:52
rysiek|plTm_T: oh?20:52
yofelthe work to organize the collecting and our needs for money don't fit. We need contributors more than money. As we're mostly loosing developer time, not infrastructure20:55

Prometheshow to enable ntp time synchronization in kubuntu 11.10 ?21:20
Kurdistanyofel, :) here I am.21:29
yofelKurdistan: no idea if there's a fix, my workaround is setting GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1280x800x32 in /etc/default/grub. But you need to check your supported modes from the grub commandline with 'vbeinfo' first or that might make the system unbootable21:29
Kurdistankubuntu 12.04 LTS will be supported for 3 years?21:30

emWhat are the best ways for someone who is not exceptionally technical to contribute to the kubuntu project?21:59
ubottuTo test your hardware, you can use the packages memtest86+ (for memory, can be started from the !GRUB boot menu), smartmontools (for hard drives), cpuburn (which MIGHT damage your processor if cooling is not adequate!). Additionally, lm-sensors can be useful to monitor temperatures and fan speeds - See also !benchmark22:01
PhilRod_em: (I know that these are true for kde in general, and I expect they're true for kubuntu too): depending on your skills and interests, writing documentation, translating guis and documentation, beta testing, bug triaging, writing promotional articles, donating money, producing artwork22:04
jimmy51_I'm using the LiveCD to boot and test hardware on various models of HP servers.  When I boot a HP DL160G6 (onboard generic video) the monitor goes into power saving mode when the graphical session starts.  i'm using an ATEN kvm.22:09
jimmy51_the problem does not occur when the monitor is directly connected.22:09
jimmy51_i can hit ctrl alt f5 to switch to a text mode session to troubleshoot.  speaking of troubleshooting, where to i start ? :)22:10
BluesKajjimmy51_,  have you updated/upgraded lately...I have to ask, perhaps a driver upgrade is in order.22:14
jimmy51_BluesKaj: it's just the stock 10.04 LTS LiveCD22:14
BluesKajgraphics that is22:14
emPhilRod_: Okay I will try to find out about that. I heard about bug triage in another channel also.22:15
jimmy51_BluesKaj: scratch that... it's the 11.04 LiveCD22:15
BluesKajjimmy51_, my mistake..22:19
jimmy51_BluesKaj: no prob.  i'm downloading various versions from 10.04 to current to test.  i really really hope it works in 11.10.22:21
PhilRod_em: I guess you found this page already, but in case not: http://www.kubuntu.org/community/contribute22:22
* jimmy51_ sighs. two hours to download. 22:23
jimmy51_i'll resume in the morning.  have a nice day/evening/night everyone22:23
