DasKreechtbruff13: I suppose someone can00:21
tbruff13DasKreech, hey00:21
Sentynelnancy--: in that case you'll be paying for the bandwidth over the free limit00:21
DasKreechIf they are here or not is a different matter00:22
tbruff13DasKreech, okay i have figured out why most of my keyboard shortcuts do not work in pithos and gmusicbrowser00:22
DasKreechSentynel, nancy--: what's the query about EC2 about? Ubuntu ships with EC2 aware tools?00:22
tbruff13DasKreech, they rely on a package called gnome-settings daemon00:22
DasKreechtbruff13: instead of dbus?00:22
tbruff13DasKreech, i do not know what instead of it could rely on00:23
tbruff13I just know what they plugin for gmusicbrower says00:23
nancy--i didnt see the bandwidth change in the activity or my bills. (just a charge for elastic ip)00:23
tbruff13as far as pithos00:23
tbruff13i am not sure00:23
nancy--Sentynel,  DasKreech00:23
tbruff13DasKreech, any ideas00:29
DasKreechtbruff13: You haven't asked anything yet so I'm not sure what path my ideas should traverse00:30
tbruff13DasKreech, how do i make these program that request gnome-settings daemon work in KDE?00:31
yofeltbruff13: install gnome-settings-daemon then?00:34
tbruff13yofel, if i install it and try to run it00:35
tbruff13it says an error00:35
tbruff13that equates to you cannot have two shortcut systems running at the same time00:36
tbruff13i will try again00:36
yofelah, no idea how to resolve that00:36
tbruff13yofel, here is a pastebin http://pastebin.com/SeLRemdG00:39
tbruff13yofel, is there any way to make KDE play nice with applications that request gnome-settings-daemon00:40
tbruff13maybe a plugin or package that could forward the request to what ever settings daemon kde uses00:40
yofeltbruff13: for one, gnome-settings-daemon is a user process, please don't start it with sudo00:41
tbruff13yofel, okay00:42
antonio___How can I install oxygen-transparent?00:42
tbruff13i have to logout of x then00:42
DasKreechtbruff13: give them gnome-settings-daemon or patch them ?00:42
yofeltbruff13: why?00:42
tbruff13because the process will not end00:42
yofeltbruff13: kill it?00:42
tbruff13oh duh00:42
tbruff13sorry lol im tired today bad00:42

DasKreechamesha: what were you doing when they vanished?01:09
DasKreechtbruff13: I might browse the dbus tree to see if those applications register themselves.01:10
DasKreechyou can just write simple shell scripts to control them through shortcuts if they do01:11
DasKreechamesha: what were you doing when they vanished?01:11
tbruff13DasKreech, i do not know how to do that man I will try though01:11
ameshai killed an application that wasn't responding, and it seems that i got logged out01:11
ameshai logged back in and they were gone01:11
DasKreechamesha: oh dear. How did you kill the application?01:12
tbruff13amesha, what application01:12
DasKreechtbruff13: don't know how to do which part?01:12

ameshathe application was anki01:13
yofelDasKreech: pong?01:13
ameshaalthough it was a plugin window that wasn't responding01:13
tbruff13DasKreech, how to pull up a dbus tree or read it01:14
tbruff13I am working on it01:14
tbruff13be nice to learn01:14
DasKreechyofel: Would qdbus show up gnome registered dbus commands?01:14
DasKreechamesha: hmm that shouldn't log you out01:14
yofelDasKreech: it should show the full dbus tree, including gnome01:14
ameshawhen i open something as root with kdesudo i have a menu bar01:14
DasKreechyofel: ok thanks that is what I thought01:15
DasKreechtbruff13: try qdbus from the konsole01:15

DasKreechand Good night!01:24
ameshadid you say something while i was gone?01:25
DasKreechamesha: I thnk it may not be a GUI setting01:25
tbruff13DasKreech, if i bind the key fn+f12 in gmusicbrowser can i still bind it for pithos as well01:25
DasKreechOr rather a haywire application of a GUI setting01:25
ameshaokay, any idea how to fix it?01:25
DasKreechtbruff13: long as they are not there at the same time. You may wnat to build a small shell script that can differentiate between the two and then bind to that01:25
DasKreechno so I'll ping yofel again01:26
tbruff13amesha, what version of kde01:26
DasKreechyofel: Any idea why all KDE applications would lose the file-edit menu?01:26
DasKreechCtrl+M doesn't rectify01:27
DasKreechoccured post Xorg umm lets say crash01:27
ameshai could try logging out and logging in again01:27
DasKreechopening applications in another user works01:28
yofelhm, no sorry, if ctrl+m doesn't show it then I don't know what's wrong either01:28
DasKreechI'd try rebooting or a runlevel bounce01:28
ameshai could delete my ~/.kde but i'd much rather not01:29
yofelctrl+m IS still assigned as show menubar shortcut?01:29
DasKreechyofel: I'm trying to think if there is a setting that would move them ala a global menu bar01:29
DasKreechamesha: you can just move it to a new name01:30
DasKreechyofel: Oh hmm good question01:30
amesharight, i'd still rather not01:30
DasKreechamesha: :-)01:30
ameshalet me check about ctrl+m01:30
ameshayes ctrl+m is defined as show menubar in the system settings01:31
ameshai tried changing it to something different and then using the new shortcut and it still doesn't do anything01:33
ameshait looks like it's only affecting qt and gtk applications01:36
ameshaothers have their menubar01:36
DasKreechamesha: so firefox has no menu?01:39
ameshaemacs has a menu, idle (a tk app) has a menu01:40

=== matteo is now known as Guest54684
EvilResistancec2tarun,  block outbound traffic with iptables (or a firewall, like ufw, or something that ships with Kubuntu), thereby blocking traffic to websites05:34
EvilResistanceyou could also set exemptions as needed via this same method05:34
EvilResistancethat second method, however, is extraordinarily rigid, that is to say allows absolutely no exceptions other than those configured by yourself05:35

dizopsinhi... I just upgraded to Kubuntu 11.10 and apparently window size of applications isn't remembered anymore. I'm pretty sure the previous version did this. (for example, resizing dolphin, closing it, reopening it results in different window size than when closed).11:52
dizopsinis there a way to get back to the old behavior?11:52
BluesKaj'Morning all13:04
ScuniziMorning all :) .. for some reason the font rendition in a terminal in kubuntu isn't as smooth/pleasing/ as easy to read, as a gtk terminal window in ubuntu.  Is there a way to change this?  Does it have to do with font choice or how the system displays fonts?13:31
lordievaderThere is13:32
lordievaderIn konsole go to Settings -> Current Profile13:32
lordievaderThen the Appearance tab13:32
lordievaderAnd click Edit Font13:33
Scunizilordievader: thanks.. I'm having an issue finding Current Profile in Settings.  In which group is that?13:34
lordievaderScunizi: Euhh do you have your konsole window open?13:35
Scunizilordievader: (face palm). I was looking in "Setting" off the menu system and have irssi running in Guake so I totally overlooked, looking in an actual terminal window.13:37
lordievaderWell it's just in the konsole window13:37
BluesKajScunizi,  current profile>appearance tab13:37
BluesKajsettings>current profile>appearance tab13:38
BluesKajoops :)13:38
Scunizilordievader: my konsole window doesn't have much of a menu structure.. nothing that you've mentioned.  I see that type of menu in a gtk terminal window but nothing like that off the kde konsole window.  Just the menu/dot in the upper left with some options.13:42
BluesKajScunizi, if you don't see the menubar , ctrl+shift+M13:42
lordievaderHey thx blues didn't know that :)13:43
ScuniziBluesKaj: wow.. I had no idea that existed.13:43
BluesKajyea lordievader, right clicking in the terminal shows that ,,,I also leqarbed the hard way13:44
BluesKajer learned13:44
ScuniziBluesKaj: lordievader : got it.  Thanks.  I feel like an idiot.  I should have tried the right mouse click in the window as well ah-la XFCE13:47
lordievaderhey that is what we are here for!13:47
BluesKajthe right click dialog is your friend , most of the time :)13:48
Scunizilordievader: and good that I caught you too!  I'm typically on an dasking questions around 7pm Pacific Time and all is quiet13:48
lordievaderReally? i can see that being annoying...13:49
BluesKajearly there13:49
BluesKaj9:50 AM here in the east13:50
Scuniziright now it is.. some days I just have to get out of bed and it's typically between 4am and 6am.. I hate those days.13:50
Scunizino rhyme or reason why I wake up then but when I do I can't just lye there13:51
lordievaderBoth in the u.s.?13:51
ScuniziSouthern California here.13:51
lordievaderSounds nice13:52
BluesKajyup, hate waking up in the dark at 6AM , so I just make coffee and chat in here..I'm in Ontario , 200mi N of Torornto13:52
lordievaderWell i am in Holland :)13:53
BluesKajerr Toronto ,,,we love mispelling it13:53
ScuniziWhat time is it in Holland right now?13:54
lordievaderjup typos are fun....13:54
lordievaderon my fuzzy clock (love that clock) its "Four o'clock"13:54
BluesKajearly spring here , the snow just melted... was a pretty mild winter for our area...winter sports were practically non-existent13:55
Scunizithe day's early yet!  Never made it to Holland.  I spent 3 years in Germany and 2 in Italy, cruzed all over Europe via train, bus, tram etc.  Had lots of fun13:55
BluesKajthe offtopic cops will be her soon :)13:56
ScuniziBluesKaj: it was in the 70's yesterday here LOLOLOL13:56
lordievaderok slightly more ontopic, is it possible to have open applications bound to activities?13:56
lordievaderkinda like the virtual desktops?13:57
Scunizigood question.. I haven't played with activities..13:57
BluesKajyeah , we had 70sF for about 10 days ...50s now..which is fine for yardwork etc13:57
lordievaderMe neither, this is my second day using kde as main window manager.13:58
BluesKajyeah , the activities options "reason for being" ecapes me13:58
Scuniziwhat's the link for the updated KDE packages?  The ppa I mean13:58
BluesKajescapes me13:58
lordievaderScunizi: did you mean this one:13:59
Scunizilordievader: I just can't stand unity on a dual monitor desktop setup.. on my laptop it's fine but a bit clunky for me.13:59
lordievaderI just can't stand unity, on one monitor or 2...14:00
Scunizithat could be it.. is this the one that's used to upgrade kde desktop to 4.8.xx14:00
BluesKajsudo apt-add-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports14:00
Scunizithat's it.14:00
lordievaderbackport is basically unsupported and unstable newer versions.14:00
Scuniziyou're right .. typically that would be true but it's a bit different with the kde desktop14:01
lordievaderis it?14:02
lordievaderin my experience kde is a bit more delicate than gnome, one package update can screw up the system...14:02
BluesKajI'm running 12.04/kde 4.8.1 and so far it's really quite stable14:03
lordievaderThat is nice14:03
Scunizigot the same on my desktop and it's smooth..14:03
lordievaderIt is now in a beta stage right?14:03
BluesKajofficial release in a month or so14:04
lordievaderAh, I had the alpha version installed for a few weeks that one was also suprisingly stable.14:04
BluesKajLTS as well14:04
Scuniziwhat I really like is some of the window management.. two open windows when you drag them to the edges of the screen you can drop them 1/2 screen 1/4 etc14:04
lordievaderthe version that i am running (11.10) has that too...14:05
Scunizialthough it's a little touchy trying to get the "outline" to show up for 1/2 screen14:06
lordievaderI have it setup that i can drag windows to the next virtual desktop, so that makes it even more difficult14:07
Scuniziyes that would make it a bit more problemmatic :)14:07
lordievaderthe space to activate the feature should be larger14:08
BluesKajin the taskbar icon right click and the page can be moved to a different desktop14:09
BluesKajpage/app whatever14:10
BluesKajI guess most already know about that feature14:10
lordievader Need to get some food, ttyl14:15
Scuniziwow.. I was doing the backport updates and the system froze. I had to do a dpkg -a and -f to fix the system and continue with the update..14:22

markiturgh, ok15:01
lordievaderor are you just trying to update packages?15:01

markitbut the point is that looks buggy15:03
markitlordievader: sure15:03
markitanyone can confirm this bug?15:03
BluesKajyeah , it's a devel release ...dist is best15:03
lordievaderAh you can do that with "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade"15:03
markitBluesKaj: dist is to jump from one version to another, I'm already in Precise 12.0415:04
markitlordievader: I'm here to have confirm of the bug15:04
markitdon't want to use apt-get, just have aptitude fixed15:04
lordievaderah, haven't said a thing. I rarely use aptitude myself so that is why i suggested it.15:05
BluesKajno it's not , markit , dist is for upgrading apps with the the releas , it's no longer used to upgrade to the newer release , do-release-uypgrade does that now15:05
BluesKajdo-release-upgrade rather15:05
lordievaderreally? It seems my knowlege is old -.-15:06

BluesKajdoda1,  https://launchpad.net/ubuntu16:40
doda1BluesKaj: ah thanks16:42
doda1i searched for kubuntu bugs and on that page couldn't find a report bug button16:42
BluesKajdoda1,  it's worth joining lauchpad to reportbugs , but search for it first before filing because it may already be reported then you may find a fix16:44
doda1what is the name of the kubuntu installer ?16:52
n8wanyone runin kubuntu via vbox?17:02
BluesKajdoda1, use sudo apt-getupdate && sudo apt-get upgrade , first , muon is the installer but it needs a fix to come down from the repos first to solve a bug17:03
BluesKajsudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade17:03
BluesKajnope , running kubuntu for real here17:04
BluesKajn8w,  what's your issue ?17:09
licensedhey anobody uses xchat with kde?17:12

doda1licensed: what is the error that you are getting17:18
n8wBluesKaj<-- I think im on the wai to resolve my issue:)17:18
doda1and regarding xchat, try konversation :)17:18
doda1BluesKaj: nope, i don't use kubuntu, i have arch on my desktop with kde, but i'm toying around with distros and noticed that the installer doesn't offer my country when i try to set the timezone17:20
licenseddoda1, i just install rar, unrar and p7zip-full packages and now works.. i'm sorry to disturb you.. and i will to try konversation17:20
doda1on the 11.10 image17:20
licensedbut i think xchat it's slow because akonadi.. i just close akonadi (I didn't know what it is) and now it's fast17:21
doda1licensed: no problem :)17:21
doda1nope, xchat doesn't use akonadi at all, but if you don't use it you can disable it with a workaround17:21
doda1what are the specs of your machine ?17:22
licensedwhen i close akonady.. i back to xchat and all it's fast17:22
licensedi have core2duo E4500 / 2,5gb ram (no swap) / HD1,5tb17:22

BluesKajlicensed,  you can disable akonadi in system settings , startup&shutdown,service manager , nepomuk search module (tied to akonadi) uncheck.Then in sesion mangement , check "restore previous session" and add akonadi, nepomuk to the "applications to be excluded from sessions" text .17:30
licensedBluesKaj, cool17:32
licenseddoda1, yes, you're right.. xchat it's slow again =(17:33

licensedui responsiveness17:35
licensednot only xchat ui, but all windows17:35

BluesKajok , jamtime ..later gents17:36
licensedi like xchat, i use some plugins and features good.. I tried quassel but i didn't like. i will try a new instance of xchat (with no plugins and no configurations).. if didn't solve, I have to change my client and i will try konversation17:38

hypershockI am having an issue where the bottom of many fonts are clipped. and in popup bubbles the bottom line usually gets clipped entirely. and when moving the mouse up and down a drop down list, you can see little line artifacts in the path of the highliting. and ironically, this is faster than lubuntu and all of my x264's play very well. so is what i'm searching for a compositing issue?17:54

hypershockpvivek: as i am able to connect to the plasma widget repository just fine.18:07
hypershockDasKreech: it might not be the fonts at all. I think it is a compositing issue cause sometimes I get line on a dialogue, not a full one, but you  can tell the computer drew it and then if i switch screens or tabs it'll vanish away.18:09
hypershockDasKreech: I'm wondering if kwin --replace will help my situation18:09

hypershockpvivek: also, on my desktop there is an icon in the upper right, I click that and choose add-widget and then a bar pops up from the task line and then I choose "get new widgets" on the right and then i choose "download new widgets" and then my list loads. see if you can do that. i'll try your method now to see if i fail. :)18:19

aguitelhow install minimal kde in 12.04 ?18:31
hypershockhttp://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=97685 seems to suggest that running this command "qdbus org.kde.kded /modules/networkstatus org.kde.Solid.Networking.setNetworkStatus Solid 4" might solve your problem temporarily. If it does you might want to put it in a script somewhere, but at the very least you'll be able to research your problem out further.18:32

hypershockpvivek: hmm, ok, i tried it and i got the same result in shell. however, now that you've run it like a Clint Eastwood movie, see if you can at least connect to the widget repository via your method.18:40

=== yofel_ is now known as yofel
DasKreechPromethes: look at the release notes?20:40
PromethesDasKreech: i found that transcode features but when i choose custom transcoding options format list is empty20:42
SentynelPromethes: you need ffmpeg installed for transcoding to work20:51
PromethesSentynel: ffmpeg is installed, package name ffmpeg20:52
PromethesSentynel: strange, i reinstalled ffmpeg package and now audio formats are available20:54
PromethesSentynel: still transcoding is not working, no matter what audio codec i choose, files are just copied20:57
SentynelPromethes: copying from amarok's file browser to the collection? does it work if you let it pick the automatic settings rather than custom?20:59
PromethesSentynel: no, automatic settings and custom setting works in the same way - copying files instead transcoding the21:01
DasKreechPromethes: can you add in transcoding options yourself?21:06
SentynelPromethes: is anything relevant emitted if you start amarok from the console with amarok --nofork --debug and then try and transcode?21:06
PromethesSentynel: i tried to modify custom encoding options, but without any success21:07
ScuniziI had an issue I posted earlier with font clarity in a terminal or guake, yakuake etc.. I've just discovered it looks *much* better with font smoothing turned off for some reason.21:09
PromethesSentynel: i am running amarok -d now, there is nothing like error or warning when i try to copy some files with transcoing21:09
DasKreechScunizi: depends on some combination of your card/driver and monitor. That's why we have options21:10
PromethesSentynel: maybe Amarok 2.5 is not properly compiled? i use kde backports ppa21:10
SentynelPromethes: it shouldn't be, as it detected the transcoding options available fine, but who knows21:11
Sentynelas I say, transcoding's been rewritten since that release and should generally be a lot better21:12
Promethesis there any other tool for syncing or managing audio devices/ipods/mp3 players with transcode support?21:19
Promethesbesides Amarok21:19
SentynelI use my own script to do it; I don't know about any software21:20
Sentynelyou might want to try building the current development version of amarok, as transcoding and device support have had quite a lot of work21:20
