SnowhogKubuntu 11.10 running KDE 4.7.4, all fully upto date. I installed kdiff3 earlier this month. In the K Menu, the entry for it is in Lost & Found. It should of course, be located elsewhere in the menu. Why did this occur, and what do I need to do to fix it so that it appears where it is supposed to?01:57

BluesKaj'Morning folks13:35
oratedHi BluesKaj13:38
BluesKajhi orated13:38
oratedI often find a delay in playback, sudden no sound and random bups turning speaker on/off. For example, if I click on a file to delete it, the dialog box pops up with a warning sound if I want to confirm deletion. Sometimes that sound doesn't comes otherwise it's audible after file deletion. And during that time, a 'bup' speaker sound comes before and after playback. $pulseaudio -v: http://paste.ubuntu.com/848523/ . Can you help me13:45
oratedfind the cause please?13:45
BluesKajorated,  sorry , I know nothing about system sounds since I find them annoying and are permanently turned off13:47
oratedBluesKaj: Hmm... but any idea if pulseaudio is usually installed by default?13:50
BluesKajorated, yes it is13:51
orated'coz I see aptitude show pulseaudio to return - libltdl3 (< 1.5.24-1), pulseaudio-module-rygel-media-server (< 1:1.0-0ubuntu3.1), pulseaudio-module-udev (<           1:1.0-0ubuntu3.1)13:52
oratedfor Conflicts^13:52
BluesKajaptitude doesn't resolve conflicts as well as apt-get in my experience ..wasn't always the case , but it is now13:53
oratedI don't know peroperly about sound. But is alsa used or pulseaudio?13:54
oratedI was thinking of purgin pulseaudio13:54
BluesKajorated,  to purge pulse , sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y --reinstall install alsa-base alsa-utils; killall pulseaudio; rm -r ~/.pulse13:56
oratedYes, but is it advisable? I mean if its default, so it can cause problems ..13:57
BluesKajwell, I've purged it several times to get rid of in order to test alsa modifications without interference from pulse , and when done a pulse reinstall always worked ok  afterwards ...a reboot is usually required tho13:59
mikelohi everyone i have trouble with flashplugin    when im trying tu purge it it asks me to remove a half of my system as a dependances about 500 packages14:58
mikeloto be precise im trying to remove package flashplugin-installer by aptitude15:00
mikeloim using kubuntu 11.10 amd6415:00
mikeloany help?15:01
BluesKajmikelo,  use your package manager to find the correct app name then use aptitude to remove it15:14
mikeloBluesKaj, correct package name is flashplugin-installer but aptitude wants to remove half of my system with it im no sure its ok15:20
=== mike is now known as Guest39306
BluesKajmikkel__,  try sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-installer , instead15:24
BluesKajoops sorry mikkel__ , he feft , but I didn't notice15:25

BluesKajmikelo,  aptitude,  doesn't handle dependencies as well as apt-get , now.15:30
mikeloBluesKaj i see     i reinstalled flashplugin but it didnt help i stil cant play music and videos15:33
ikoniaBluesKaj: has something changed in aptitude ?15:33
BluesKajikonia,  only reports I have is that apt-get seems to handle dependencies more accurately than aptitude ...aptitude is no longer installed by default afaik15:35
BluesKajmikelo,  have you installed kubuntu-restricted-extras15:37
=== beck is now known as designbybeck
mikelofor the first time yes but now i tried adobe-flashplugin package instead15:39
mikeloi suspect its something wrong with the site, coz i can play youtube15:40
BluesKajmikelo,  which site ? paste the url here so we can test it15:42
BluesKajthat's no help ...I'm not allowed ..not in Russia or the Ukraine15:45
BluesKajmikelo, there is a workaround to the flash problem . Download the latest flshplayer from the adobe site , extract the file , then copy the libflashplayer.so file to /usr/lib/mozilla//plugins with root permissions . Alt+F2, kdesudo dolphin /usr/lib/mozilla15:46

RatchetmanI keep getting this error message: E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)18:42
RatchetmanE: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?18:42
aftertafyou dont have an update running, synaptic, muon or anything else ?18:43
RatchetmanI do have muon running! Thank you!18:43
aftertafha :)18:43
RatchetmanI'm noob18:44
aftertafbeen there, asked that18:44
Ratchetman:) guess I should read more manuals and such.18:44
aftertafits about understanding what the system is telling you18:45
RatchetmanYou'd think with multi cored processors you could multitask updates.18:45
aftertaf" Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?"18:45
RatchetmanWhat does it mean to lock the directory?18:45
aftertafhas to be one process updating, cos otherwise you could do all sorts of uncool things and break your dependencies ;)18:45
aftertafits a file called 'lock'18:46
aftertafif its there, then it means a process created it18:46
aftertafwhen the process finishes, it removes it18:46
RatchetmanYeah I did try and 'apt-get -f install' and it had a lot of dependancy issues.18:47
RatchetmanProbably from muon running right?18:47
aftertaffrom an update process that didnt finish correctly, probably18:49
RatchetmanI see. Now I just looked at what it was doing and there's a good 134 being installed and 27 removed. I only selected 3 things...18:49
RatchetmanCould it be possible that it is finishing something that didn't work the last time I did an upgrade to my system?18:50
aftertafcould eb18:50
RatchetmanWould it continue to make things worse if I didn't allow oeneric updates to finish?18:51

But still i am not able to have the bluetooth on. Someone please guide me to download the module for the bluetooth driver19:09

=== JackyAlcine_ is now known as JackyAlcine
RatchetmanMainly to get another update done so that I may install files to my mp3 player19:10
RatchetmanOr an install rather19:10
aftertafha :)19:10
aftertafif its processing, leave it be...19:11
RatchetmanYes, trivial but currently a top priority19:11
aftertafbetter to learn apt-get * than do things both in colsole and with a gfx package tool19:11
RatchetmanIf I get the music on I can go out and leave it to update.19:11
aftertafif you do so and it 'breaks' something, itll tell you :19:12
aftertafie -f install needed, etc...19:12
RatchetmanYeah I like it better for it's funcionality but muon lists things and I can search through it.19:12
RatchetmanI don't know how to do that in konsole19:13
RatchetmanAftertaf: first and foremost how do I do a system upgrade with apt-get?19:14
oratedmaniX: Did you try https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx ?19:14
JackyAlcineSystem upgrades in Kubuntu are simple.19:15
JackyAlcineIf you use 'apt-get'; then it's "apt-get dist-upgrade && apt-get upgrade"19:16
JackyAlcineAptitude would be "aptitude full-upgrade && aptitude-safe upgrade"19:16
oratedmaniX: If you run lsmod | grep brc do you see brcm80211 or brcmsmac in the output?19:16
JackyAlcineHowever, if Muon or your package manager detects updates if should report them.19:16
maniXorated: nopes19:17
RatchetmanExcellent. Thank you.19:17
maniXorated i have already done that. My kernel is using wl driver19:17
maniXorated: i have brcmsmac and other drivers blacklisted19:18
RatchetmanJackyAlcine: Is aptitude similar to apt-get?19:18
JackyAlcineRatchetman: it is, it provides a CLI (command-line interface).19:19
oratedmaniX: Seems right then. Do you have any conflicting driver for wireless?19:19
JackyAlcineIt's sometimes easier to use Aptitude because it provides an interface, but most people recommend sticking to apt.19:19
RatchetmanThanks for the info.19:19
RatchetmanI think I'll stick to apt. It's not failed me yet.19:20
maniXorated: i guess the conflicting ones were bcma and brcmsmac. And i have blaclisted them in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file19:20
oratedmaniX: 'sudo apt-get build-dep linux'  didn't help either?19:23
oratedafter having headers19:23
maniXOrated: i havent tried these links. Actually whatever i did was based on google research. I myself dont know much about linux, but i am learning.19:24
=== JackyAlcine_ is now known as JackyAlcine
maniXorated: earlier i had the problem that the kernel was using brcmsmca driver. so i with help from google i blaclisted the bcma and brcmsmca. It made the wifi to work but not the bluetooth19:25
oratedmaniX: I remember facing problem with broadcom that only source file helped in the end. I'm trying to help you from my experience.. Can you install linux-headers-generic and run 'apt-get build-dep linux' ?19:26
maniXorated: i have the headers, "apt-get build-dep linux" is running19:29
orateder do you have build-essentials?19:30
maniXlemme check19:30
oratedsorry, forgot to mention that19:30
maniXwhat is the command to check that?19:30
oratedsudo apt-get install build-essential19:31
oratedThat will prompt for installation if not installed19:31
maniXbuild-dep linux is running, will chk this right after this19:32
maniXIts installed orated19:33
oratedWell, build essential and headers are required to run that19:33
oratedAny errors?19:33
maniXnone that i noticed19:33
maniXno, no errors19:33
oratedWith that command, the driver dependencies were built, so you need to reboot to check if it works19:35
maniXok then rebooting... see you soon..:D19:36

designbybeckwith your credit of course19:53
designbybeck  / blessing19:53
JackyAlcine_lol, no problem, licensed under the CC-BY-SA 3 :P19:53
designbybeckdid you say what you are going to school for JackyAlcine_?19:53
JackyAlcine_right now, I'm going for computer science and sociology19:54
JackyAlcine_and with a brick, you only can really use it at its face value (unless you literally break it apart, but then you only have the option to either use those small parts independently or barely get it back together)19:55
JackyAlcine_with lego, you can disaseemble, reassemble, and utilize at whim.19:55
designbybeckand you have more colors to pick from with legos ;)19:55
JackyAlcine_Lol precisely!19:56
JackyAlcine_An idea's only as good as its implementation.19:58
RatchetmanTwo of my favorite things in the world used together to provide insight to a world so many people miss out on. Tip of the hat to you.19:58
JackyAlcine_Such an idea requires resources I don't have at the moment.19:58

maniX_orated: u there? sorry for ping u again and again. i dont know if i am connected to the channel or not.20:04
oratedmaniX_: Yes20:05
designbybeckthen to share them, make them modular, so other faculty can take the content they want to use and mix and match with other content20:05
JackyAlcine_The only thing I'm afraid of is having too complicated of a UI for a student to use.20:06
oratedmaniX_: You pinged out after your http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/849062/ post20:06
JackyAlcine_Like maybe having only a list of textbooks as an initial screen, a listing of sources to get books from and perhaps a means of reading, annotation, publicly commenting (with moderation by professers), etc.20:07
jmuthi. How do I update kubuntu packages from console? Also do I have to kill X somehow if there are kde based packages in the update?20:07

JackyAlcine_jmut: Do you have the Kubuntu PPA added to your system?20:10
JackyAlcine_designbybeck: But with so much data in one spot, there's a need to implement a cloud.20:10
JackyAlcine_Perfect use of ownCloud here.20:10
designbybeckI'm in the middle of nowhere! JackyAlcine_ but lucky a rich oil field guy paid to have a 3G tower out here, so I am connecting my netbook through my cellphone hotspot!20:10
maniX_orated: i can assure u that i hntu and windows 7 installedave bluetooth. and is on. i have a dual booth system here with kubu20:11
designbybeckTrue true JackyAlcine_ a local campus wide cloud for their educational content the school needs to control/manage20:11
designbybeckthen the rest can be the big cloud20:11
maniX_lol the message got scrambled20:11
oratedmaniX_: understood20:11
JackyAlcine_Such a system could be easily set up, since most campuses provide Wifi for students (over here they do)20:11
oratedTry rfkill block 120:12
JackyAlcine_and there could be a public server of sorts so students off-campus could connect to it.20:12
oratedmaniX_:  and then see  if rfkill list changes20:12
JackyAlcine_jmut: you have the Kubuntu PPA installed on your system?20:12
oratedmaniX_: You said your wireless was working, right?20:12
designbybeckI'm out for now, thanks for the brainstorming JackyAlcine_20:13
JackyAlcine_No problem, designbybeck. :)20:13
maniX_orated : yeah wifi working, but "no adapters found" for bluetooth. and rfkill list didnt changed20:13
JackyAlcine_I might blog about this :D20:13
jmutJackyAlcine_: http://pastebin.com/M73Y2Ch5   that?20:13
oratedmaniX_: Your rfkill should have listed something like hci0: Bluetooth if bluetooth adapter is detected20:14
jmutJackyAlcine_: pretty much have my default repository..haven't changed anything20:14
maniX_orated: well,...?20:15
JackyAlcine_jmut: You've installed Kubuntu or are trying to install kubunutu-desktop onto Ubuntu?20:15
JackyAlcine_If the former, then just run the apt-get update to fetch new changes.20:15
JackyAlcine_You're running KDE 4.7?20:16
oratedmaniX_:  I think only Broadcom STA driver  are required20:16
jmutJackyAlcine_: I have Kubuntu installed already. But I just want to upgrade it in best practices way. Since I am in X and there are some kde packages suggested for upgrade I wanted to ask first20:16
oratedmaniX_:  but hold on please, let me see http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php and http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txtBut20:16
JackyAlcine_Ah. Well, most likely apt has your interests in mind.20:17
maniX_orated: i visited the broadcoms site for that. i had their software installed. but it didnt worked at all20:17
jmutJackyAlcine_: 4.6.520:17
jmutJackyAlcine_: ok :) will give a shot :) thanks a lot20:17
oratedmaniX_: I think you mixed both the approaches. With Broadcom STA driver  only rfkill lists it and block does the magic20:17
maniX_Orated this same link i used. but it didnt worked either. I just dont get it. Is there any other module that might be conflicting with the bluetooth particularly?20:18
maniX_orated: i dont get you?20:18
oratedmaniX_: You tried http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php or one from ubuntu repositories?20:19
maniX_here on kubuntu i tried only the one from ubuntu repos20:19
maniX_but on my ubuntu i tried both20:20
maniX_i have them installed seperately20:20
maniX_so they cannot be conflicting with each other(ubuntu on one partition and kubuntu on other)20:20

oratedmaniX_: You had firmware-b43* packages installed right?20:29
maniX_orated: how to chkk that?20:29
jmutJackyAlcine: all went ok :) Btw I have kernel upgrade skipped. Should I use  apt-get dist-upgrade  for it?20:30
=== yofel_ is now known as yofel
jmutJackyAlcine: cause with apt-get upgrade it just skippes it20:30
oratedmaniX: Easy way would be to see if sudo apt-get install firmware-b43* prompts for installation .. otherwise see apt-cache search  firmware-b43* and aptitude show <package>20:30
JackyAlcineYou skipped it or did apt skip it?20:31
JackyAlcineIf the latter, then yes, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade would install it, but also bring you up to 11.1020:31
maniX_orated: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/849113/20:33
maniX_i dont have it installed20:33

jmutJackyAlcine: hmm... is that bad :)    bringing to 11.10 :)20:35
oratedmaniX_: That's fine. Now please pastebin - 'sudo rmmod -v wl' , 'jocky-text' and 'lsmod | grep wl'20:35

oratedmaniX_: Yes20:43
maniX_but i have just checked my log. i recieved those outputs after i ran rfkill block 120:44

oratedNow you can either follow http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php and its intructions or install sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer20:49
maniX_but i have just visited b43 page20:49
maniX_they say that they do not have support for my driver20:49
maniX_http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43. ortaed: mine is 431320:50
oratedYes, b43 is alternative. I tried to bring you to a state where you can try directly the source or ubuntu repo. As you say, b43 lists your device unsupported. Now, you need to follow the http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php20:52
oratedmaniX_: I found a notice relevant to your device20:54
maniX_orated: i already told u that i tried that link on my ubuntu. but iit didnt worked there20:55
maniX_orated: what is it?20:55
orated*IMPORTANT* If dual-booting Windows and Ubuntu, be sure to enable the card (wireless light is on) in Windows before booting Ubuntu, otherwise it will not work.20:55
maniX_orated: i already know that. and i always have it checked.20:55
maniX_cause if it is not on then none of linuxes will detect the hardware. its like window have control to harware switch, but linux has no control20:56
oratedmaniX_: If you followed the source, then its strange to me that rfkill is not listing it20:57
maniX_no i tried that on ubuntu. not kubuntu20:57
maniX_u want me to try that now on kubuntu too?20:57
oratedmaniX_: And you say it worked in neither?20:58
maniX_if u notice20:58
maniX_in readme20:58
maniX_in the end just read what they say at the end for ubuntu20:58
maniX_orated: in the end it said that ubuntu provided driver: bcmwl-krnel-source is the same as provided by the compiler. The only thing is that i have to compile it before i can install it21:01
maniX_compiler-> link21:01
maniX_orated: i guess i have come here with homework done. lol..:D21:03
oratedmaniX_: Can you try the source in Kubuntu and check rfkill and jockey-text? I'm quite lost in your case21:04
oratedmaniX_: For bluetooth, it should list - hci0: Bluetooth or something like that21:05
maniX_ok then, i will do everything again for kubuntu. Lets see how it goes. It is possible i might i done something wrong there.21:05
oratedrfkill should^21:05
