rtdoshow do i disable the GUI login for Kubuntu and use a text based login?02:13
ubottuTo start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode02:13
rtdosis there anyway to make this permanent?02:15

skramer_I want to set up SAMBA on my PC running Oneiric and KDE 4.8.1. However, I can´t seem to find the SAMBA configuration und System Settings. Am I missing anything?06:19
avihayI think you need to install a KCM that isn't installed by default06:20
avihayor you can edit samba's config files with a text editor06:20
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit06:23

wifioregonI need to buy a good laptop that works well with kubuntu. Any particluar models better then others? Are there any companies that sell laptops with kubuntu already installed, since I'm going to erase windows anyways? THANKS07:04
lordievaderwifioregon, not sure if there are vendors who install kubuntu on their machines, RedHat is I believe more common, however you could try to get a machine without an OS installed. Sometimes vendors do sell those, lowers cost because Windows doesn't need to be bought07:06
hateballwifioregon: depends on where you are located07:07
lordievaderwifioregon, I guess this will be usefull: http://www.linlap.com/07:07

hateballFor me personally it's more of a statement thing not to buy with Windows preinstalled07:09
lordievaderI don't really care, I use both anyways...07:09
lordievaderI still don't trust Wine to do photography or audio applications07:10
wifioregonI install a copy of XP with virtual box just for the very rare occasions I need to run something that wine wont handle07:11

merlin1991now I need the default one back (it had one device, but that's all I remember)13:14
merlin1991where could I get the default from?13:15
tsimpsonthere is no default, by default X detects your hardware and configuration automatically13:16
merlin1991well maybe the nvidia blob package brought something in13:16
merlin1991I never created one myself, but prior to my editing attempt there was one13:17

BluesKajmerlin1991,  if it's a proprietary driver , I'm not sure13:36
=== vsrao_ is now known as vsrao
merlin1991it's all source the package, there's got to be hook somewhere to include such a thing in kernel upgrades13:37
BluesKajmerlin1991,  there may be a deb builder which you can then use as source like a ppa , but I've never looked into that possibility13:42

CombatjuanI would like some help getting desktop effects working.  I've been at this for months and I feel like I'm finally close.  kubuntu 11.10, 2 nvidia quadro 295s, 3 monitors, proprietary nvidia driver.  When I enabled destop effects it works great for 10 seconds then locks up for 30 then works great for 5 then locks up for 30 (repeat x~10) then KDE crashes and goes back to kdm login.18:13
CombatjuanOk.  I just tried it again and it worked a bit differently than usual.  Worked well for ~45 seconds.  I clicked on the KDE application launcher it froze for 30 seconds and then kicked my back to kdm.18:17
BluesKajCombatjuan,  I really don't understand exactly what the problem is, but why a proprietary driver ? I have to ask.18:19
CombatjuanBluesKaj: I guess the simple answer is that it seems to work better than me with nouveau.  I can't get any acceleration at all with nouveau.18:21
CombatjuanI'm definitely open to it, but I have 3 monitors and 2 cards and in order to get a window manager to be usable, I need some form of Xinerama (or similar).  But nouveau just flat out won't do HW acceleration + Xinerama near as I can tell.18:22
BluesKajCombatjuan,  what about the additional drivers in kmenu>apps> system , choose the recommended nvidia driver18:25
sky100BluesKaj,  hello18:25
sky100still my wallpaper bug is unresoled18:26
BluesKajhello sky100 ...sorry I'm out of ideas on that18:26
CombatjuanBluesKaj: I didn't know about that menu.  Interesting.  So far I've tried nvidia-current, and then the official nvidia blobs (280, 290, and 295).  I'm currently using the 295 as they seem the most stable.18:26
BluesKajnvidia-current is most likely a version of the 295 driver , Combatjuan18:27
sky100u wanted to see the Autostart screenshot last day .. if ya want to see the sanpshot I can readily post thro imagebin.. would u mind watching ?18:27
BluesKajif it's the recommended driver?18:27
BluesKajsky100,  well, ok18:28
locoin dont know why my cam dont dont work in firefox chat with flash any idea?18:28
sky100just to check if ya can get some ideas...just a chance ...18:28
sky100ok ty18:28
sky100just a min BluesKaj18:29
CombatjuanBluesKaj: I think that it was 283 (or 273)?  I used that dialog to try the one it callse post-release updates (current-updates).  So I guess I'll restart and see if that works.18:30
BluesKajCombatjuan,  ok , hope it eorks for you18:30
sky100http://imagebin.org/206036 <<< BluesKaj  pls check the snapshot18:31
CombatjuanAccording to apt-cache, nvidia-current -> 280.13-0ubuntu6 and nvidia-current-updates-> 280.13-0ubuntu518:31
CombatjuanSu I guess nvidia-current > nvidia-current-updates?  Maybe? That's not intuitive to me.  Either was, those are relatively old but theoretically stable drivers.  Meh.  Here goes.18:32
BluesKajsky100,  it's odd that you have no desktop entries under "Desktop File"18:33
sky100sorry didnt get u BluesKaj18:34
sky100what normalcy is abest !18:34
sky100i dragged the icons on the desktop from Kmenu for my easy operation18:35
BluesKajsky100,  like this , http://imagebin.org/20603918:36
CombatjuanNo luck.  The 280.13 (official nvidia-current package drivers) behave the same with desktop effects on, but seem choppier than the nvidia 295 drivers.18:37
sky100so do u think that if i had an set up like that I would be able to seave wallapers even after reboot ?18:38
sky100BluesKaj, ?18:38
BluesKajCombatjuan,  open a terminal , sudo nvidia-xconfig18:39
BluesKajsky100,  not sure , but it might work . However I'm on 12.04 so the Desktop entry option may not be active in 11.10. I can't recall if it is.18:40
CombatjuanBluesKaj: http://paste.kde.org/449354/  I pasted in the nvidia-xconfig one and also the one that I tweaked (added Mosaic) which seems to work a bit better.18:41
sky100how to undo changes in auto start , BluesKaj18:41

sky100it just came up in Auto start18:43

BluesKajCombatjuan,  my problem with xorg.conf and multiple monitors is not much experience :(18:44
sky100which command to undo changes ?18:44
BluesKajsky100,  what came up in autostart ?18:44
BluesKajI know about nvidia drivers etc , but usage on multiple monitors is beyond my scope , Combatjuan18:45
CombatjuanBluesKaj: I can get it working great with a single card powering one monitor, but I just can't get it working with 2 cards and > 2 monitors.  I guess there are some inherent problems in communicating the state of pixel buffers across cards.18:46
CombatjuanBluesKaj: No problem.  Thanks for your attempt.18:46
brad__I have gnash installed and I'm usng firefox as my browser, and I'm sure that I've installed adobe, but every time I got to watch a video I get an install flash player sign... any ways of trouble shooting in terminal?18:46
BluesKajCombatjuan,  can you get 2 monitors on one card working ?18:47
CombatjuanBluesKaj: Yes, if I use nvidia twinview.  I don't think I have tried doing that with nouveau.  But lack of a third monitor is probably a deal breaker for me.18:48
sky100http://imagebin.org/206036 <, that command18:48
BluesKajnouveau can't handle that, Combatjuan , I'm quite sure18:49
sky100just see it & watch out the lines under SCRIPT FILE18:49
