DaskreechHey Everyone look who came back!17:05
cancerhi :)17:05
xixoryo, just a quick question, for curiosities sake: will kubuntu 12.04 get the 3.4 kernels?  or will that be saved for the 12.10 release?  I am fairly new to *buntu, just wondering how often kernels get updated, cheers17:06
almoxarifeany thoughts on how to remove a package from the apt database which does not remove via normal means?17:06
cancer_Daskreech: same issue.17:06
cancer_how to update nouveau.17:07
lelamalxixor: no kernel upgrades until 12.10, but just security updates17:07
Daskreechxixor: they will not unless you get a backport or a ppa17:07
Daskreechcancer_: update teh kernel. What's the issues ?17:07
xixorlelamal, Daskreech : ok, thanks, good to know17:08
=== |GuS| is now known as [GuS]
cancer_Daskreech: i think graphics lib or what ever it is got to update.17:08
xixorDaskreech, lelamal : if I did say, want to compile 3.4 myself, would it be possible to use the exact same config that was used in 12.04 when they compiled their kernel?  I know there would be a lot of things I wouldn't need compiled, but the ubuntu kernel detected all my hardware without a glitch, so if I were to compile my own kerenl, I'd like to use the same settings17:09
cancer_Daskreech: browser ain't working, so please paste the command to update nouveau...17:09
Daskreechcancer_: What does the browser not working mean?17:09
Daskreechxixor: If you want to wait a few weeks they will have the kernel in +1 and you can just grab that17:10
cancer_everything i save to desktop and icons files are gone. can't even open dolphin. when ever i try that, it only force close....17:11
cancer_browser ain't showing it's pockets to put money. no money no trade :(17:11
Daskreechcancer_: Oh dear. Can you open konsole?17:11
cancer_Sure, konsole/quassel are only working fine.17:12
Daskreechfrom konsole type dolphin17:12
xixorDaskreech: ok, what is +1 ?17:12
cancer_dolphin window still not appeared. still no sign of it.17:13
DaskreechKubuntu+1 The next version going to be released17:14
xixorDaskreech: so are those packages available through a ppa then?17:14
Daskreechxixor: the kernel is available through a ppa but you can download any of the packages from http://packages.ubuntu.com once it's available17:15
cancer_Daskreech: if you don't mind, can i paste some result in pm/17:15

DaskreechUse the pastebin and put the URL in this chan17:15
cancerDaskreech: How, no browser working.17:16
xixorDaskreech: ok, so that package would probably appear in the quantal branch, right?17:17
Daskreechcancer: where are you pasting it from? the terminal?17:17
cancerjust installed firefox. trying.17:17
Daskreechxixor: correct17:17
xixorDaskreech: one thing I am not clear on, is how I can enable a ppa, and only have that ppa use a few selected packages?17:18
ubottuA Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and you use them at your own risk. See also !addppa and !ppa-purge17:20
L3top!pastebinit | cancer17:20
ubottucancer: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com17:20
Daskreechxixor: choose correct ppas would be my suggestoin. If you choose a PPA that has a whole lot of files and different kinds of programs then it's probably a bad ppa17:21
DaskreechPPAs should be fairly focused so that those few packages you care about are kept up to date and nothing else is affected17:21
xixorDaskreech: I mean, lets say I add the quantal ppa to grab say, a kernel.  It is going to try to update almost every package on my system17:22
Daskreechxixor: there is no quantal ppa. Thre is a whole quantal system. I would suggest just picking out the kernel package and installing it yourself17:23
xixorDaskreech: ah, I see.  ok, thanks for the advice, that was very helpful.  I am new to how things are done in *buntu17:23
Daskreechxixor: And that only because the kernel has no dependencies17:23
xixorDaskreech: It has no dependencies? I thought it needed headers, and maybe a "tools" package?17:24
Daskreechxixor: anything that has dependencies I'd suggest a PPA focused on just that package17:24
Daskreechxixor: yes but those are easy to get :) maybe 4 in all if that much?17:24
xixorDaskreech: Yeah... it might need intraramfs-tools, a few others17:25
Daskreechxixor: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/linux-image-generic17:25
Daskreechvery few17:25
Daskreechand then if it doesn't work well you can just reboot into your precise kernel again17:26
Daskreechcancer: any better?17:26
Daskreechcancer: Whee :)17:27
Daskreechcancer: type qdbus and tell me if it throws an error17:27
DaskreechOk so dbus is working17:28

cancerDaskreech: how to confirm that i'm logged in a normal kubuntu condition. and believe normal is 'Default' right?17:30
Daskreechcancer: correct17:32
Daskreechcancer: do you have any desktop?17:32
canceronce upon a time....17:32
Daskreechwhat do you have now? A balck screen?17:33
cancernow have an empty desktop. everything gone was once placed.17:33
cancerhave background17:33
cancerDaskreech: i cannot 'right click' Icons in K > Computer > Trash to send them on desktop.17:34
DaskreechAh ok when you right click what do you get?17:35
DaskreechOn the desktop?17:35
cancerit's like 'Right Click' is disabled. nothing showed up.17:35
DaskreechIs there a button in the top right corner you can click on?17:36
Daskreechcancer: ah hmm does that work and give you the option to ad widgets?17:37
canceri can right click on desktop anywhere.17:38
DaskreechI wonder if you changed your desktop to a netbook17:38
Daskreechcan or cannot?17:38

xixorYo, a quick question.  I have gcc and g++ 4.6 and 4.7 installed on this system.  Anyone know how to make one or the other the default?17:52

Daskreech!info gcc17:53
ubottugcc (source: gcc-defaults (1.112ubuntu5)): GNU C compiler. In component main, is optional. Version 4:4.6.3-1ubuntu5 (precise), package size 4 kB, installed size 41 kB17:53
Daskreechsudo dpkg-reconfigure gcc i would guess17:53
xixorDaskreech: thanks, I will give that a try... I always forget about dpkg-reconfigure17:54
xixorDaskreech: I've installed 3.4.0, seems to work fine... well, it booted anyway.  I need to rebuild the nvidia module though, and it is complaining that the kernel was built with gcc4.7, and I am using gcc4.617:54
Daskreechxixor: Yeah it would ;)17:55
cancerDaskreech: i used remove instead of install from 'sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau'. and then reinstalled it. i am sure that made some changes. i also ran some other command related to nouveau from various website found by google. :D17:55
cancerIt's Fine again :)17:56
cancereverthing fine now.17:56
Daskreechcancer: if you want to remove your changes you want sudo apt-get remove --purge17:56
Daskreechbut as long s it's fine :)17:56
xixorhm... dpkg-reconfigure doesn't do it.  I suppose I could overwrite the symlinks myself... but that seems iffy17:56
Daskreechxixor: Not as iffy as you may think :)17:56
Daskreechxixor: Unless you mean you want help with it17:57
cancerDaskreech: but there is still one thing i dont understand, why all the setting i did on desktop was vanished.17:57
Daskreechcancer: I'm not sure I would guess something wrong with a config I can get you back to a default desktop if you like17:58
Daskreechcancer: the one you get when you first login18:01
lordievaderHey cancer How are you?18:01
cancerhi, i'm fine. how's about you :)18:01
cancerDaskreech: will that hurt?18:02

Daskreechcancer: in konsole type mkdir ~/plasmabkup ;kquitapp plasma-desktop && sleep 2 && mv ~/.kde/share/config/plasma* ~/plasmabkup && plasma-desktop&18:06
xixorDaskreech: yo... thanks for the help there with 3.4.  I gave up.  I couldn't get the nvidia kernel modules to compile at all, so I am back with lowly 3.2.0-24-generic... :(18:17
Daskreechxixor: did you try symlink it?18:20
Daskreechxixor: another option is just to tell the nvidia script to use gcc 4.7 instead of gcc18:20
xixorDarkwing: yeah, I tried the simlinks.  I didn't try to tell the nvidia script, nor did I try setting some sort of a cc environment variable18:20
xixorDaskreech: at a certain point, I just didn't want to spend my entire day with something like this :)18:21
xixorDaskreech: I have a lot of aimless internet surfing to do as well18:21

DaskreechBluesKaj: install no19:04
drostieHey guys.19:04
DaskreechThough Windows 7 will surely fight you for it19:04
DaskreechHI drostie19:05
tonksevening all19:05
drostiewell, I'll get the ball rolling. Anyone else running precise: if you put an audio CD in the tray and ask K3b to rip it and click "Start ripping," do you get any options other than "Wave" and "Ogg Vorbis"?19:07
Daskreechhi tonks19:08
drostieI remember -- I believe it was in Oneiric -- having many options, including FLAC. Heck, I used it to generate a bunch of flac files and have libflac installed now.19:08
Daskreechdrostie: as long as you have the encoder you can rip to it19:09
drostiebut it seems like the one in the repos doesn't install any plugins.19:09
Daskreechdrostie: you might also look at audiocd:/ in dolphin19:09
BluesKajdrostie, install soundkonverter19:09
Daskreechbut check that you have the flac enc as well as mp3 etc19:10
qbitmaybe needs libk3b6-extracodecs?19:10
drostieahahaha. audiocd:/ is great! XD19:11
drostiesoundkonverter is probably also great. :P19:11
drostieOkay, flac support in K3b doesn't require the 'libflac' etc. packages but the 'flac' package. ^_^;;19:12
tonksjust had a look round for a cd to try my k3b, cant find a single one. the times they are a changin it seems19:12
Daskreechdrostie: Isn't it? Everytime I learn something new in KDE I go "WHY DOESN"T EVERYONE IN THE WORLD USE THIS WONDERFUL BIT OF CODE?!?!"19:12
DaskreechThen my head echos and I have a headakhe and I calm down19:13
drostieDaskreech: because Windows has convinced us that if you open a CD in a file browser you just see useless crap? :P19:13
Daskreechdrostie: Yes but I can open images or archive files or another computer or a website or emails or time itself and it all makes sense. Why does everything else insist on not making sense?19:15
tonksIf I could get wine running reliably i would nail my win7 disc to the neighbours car19:15
BluesKajdrostie, if you don't mind flac conversion on the fly , then try vlc as a player .. i convert all flac files to wav19:16
drostieI had a nasty experience installing wine under kubuntu. Basically, I said "aptitude install wine" and it said, "did you mean... aptitude remove KDE and break everything?!?!" and I was all like, "no! that's retarded! apt-get install wine!" and it was all like, "okay."19:17
Daskreechtonks: To the window?19:17
drostieI think aptitude is broken. :<19:17
Daskreechdrostie: was it april 1st ?19:18
drostieI think precise was released later than April 1st. :P19:18
tonksyeah, ive played around with it numerous times, got it working once, but unreliable, and seemed a bit of a blind shot in the dark, so have to dual boot for my gaming needs19:18
drostieI wasn't a release candidater.19:18
BluesKajaptitude is no longer supported in kubuntu afaik19:18
Daskreech BluesKaj that doesn't mean it doesn't work19:19
BluesKajit' still works but hqas dependency probs19:19
drostieWine works for what I use it for -- an old copy of WZGrapher downloaded before Walter Zorn's site went down.19:19
Daskreechtonks: What version of wine?19:19
drostieSide note: we need a comparably awesome grapher written in Qt. Seriously.19:19
DaskreechWe may have one19:19
tonksDaskreech: I believe 1.319:20
drostieIt's true. I probably know less than 1% of the open-source code written in Qt. :<19:21

Guest11406but something is missing.. i have no idea what can I do19:41

Guest11406lordievader, yeap19:42

DaskreechOR ASK ON #SAMBA19:51
lordievaderEasy Daskreech easy :P19:51
qbitwinbind is such an ugly beast to set up - might take 3months before you get anything working19:52
qbitI had a few working with Win 2k3 AD - then when we went to 2008 R2 that was that and I just gave up19:54
DaskreechYeah Microsoft tends to change stuff every release19:57
DaskreechThe EU made them document them now so it's better at least19:58
DaskreechGuest11406: I'd still ask on #samba though19:58
qbitit's about to change again with Win 8 and the SMB2 protocol19:58
DaskreechYep and likely again with the service pack for Windows Phone compatibilty19:59
Daskreechas I said though they have to document it by decree now so it's better tahn just guessing in the dark as it was before19:59
qbitbe far easier to just set auth=user, add some accounts to smnpasswd and hand out user/pass access to people in a casual manner20:00
qbiterr make that smbpasswd20:00
qbitwhat I did was locate the shares on the windows servers, config Mac OS X/Linux boxen for access to those, and mounted them as drives20:02
qbitbut that is an end-run around Active Directory20:03
qbittechnically a violation of security policies too, but I don't have all day for one problem...20:05
DaskreechLeave the security fallout headacheto someone else?20:09
qbitlol - let it get lost in the noise20:10
drostietoday I learned that in KDE the whole filesystem gets abstracted, so that transferring from bluetooth and ripping a CD to MP3 and FLAC is done with normal file-copy ops in the normal file manager.20:15
drostieSuddenly all of that wasted RAM kind of makes sense.20:15
DaskreechI generally look at ti this way20:16
DaskreechThere are shared bits of logic that get loaded that make things work very well across the entire system that would be horribly difficult and even more expensive if they were not shared20:17
Daskreechhowever the downside is many people don't make use of them and quite a few don't even know they exist20:17
