lenIs there a was to tell if a package is in the que to be compiled and released?00:21
lenIf not, how to you report a missed package?  All other parts of kde-telepathy seem to be udated to .6.0 except the kde-telepathy-text-ui package which is still at .5.8.00:22
lenHow do I know if  it just hasn't finished compliing yet, or if it was forgotten/overlooking from being updated along with the rest of it's companion packages?00:24
lenthieh, can't you just select the previous kernel from grub at boot?00:26
lenSure is a deadzone in here Today00:26
lenLots of people autologged in, but nobody actually monitoring00:27
apacheloggerthe answer is launchpad.00:28
lenCan you see what packages are on-deck to be compiled?00:29
apacheloggeryes, on launchpad.00:29

lenapachelogger, The problem seems to be the all the rest of the kde-telephany packages are in release, but the text-ui is still in proposed, so there is a version mismatch doing on.  Not sure why this would happen.  What causes a package to go from proposed to released?00:39
lenAnd why wouldn't it be an all or nothing event for dependant packages?00:40
=== rosco_away is now known as rosco_y
lenIn case anyone else is trying to use kde-telepathy, the kde-telepathy-text-ui package getting left behind and not released along with rest the rest of the kde-telepathy metapackage was the problem.01:10
lenI plucked it and a dep lib of its (libttpchat0) out of the proposed queue and installed them and everything is working now.01:11
lenSo all that has to be done to fix this bug is to release kde-telepathy-text-ui and libttpchat0 from proposed to join the rest of the package from kde-telepathy that have already been released.01:12

monkeyjuicewhat word processor are you trying to use11:07
nick___LibreOffice Writer11:09

regiovhi, anyone willing to help with distro upgrade issues?11:18
regiovI'm trying to upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04, but after downloading the packages, the installation was interrupted by an error and now everytime I try to finish there are dependencies problems and I'm stuck. First it was the update-notifier-common pkg complaining about not finding python.debian module. I tried to install python-debian manually but now it complains about not finidng python2.7. How can I continue installing the packages? There are still more than 11:18
lordievaderregiov: Try "sudo apt-get -f install" this should install missing dependencies.11:19
=== kubuntu is now known as Guest63034
regiovhi lordievader, I tried that already, and I get "Correcting dependencies... failed. The following packages have unmet dependencies: python-debian: depends python2.7 b ut it is not installed. Depends: python (>= 2.7.1-0ubuntu2) but 2.6.5-0ubuntu1 is installed"11:21

nick___Okay, fixed the problem...not sure how though. Sorry for wasting your time. Your help is much appreciated. Thank you so much!11:24
monkeyjuiceanytime nick___11:25
regiovlordievader: it's complicated to paste - the reason I'm trying to upgrade is that my old lucid installation doesn't work well on my new machine (no graphics), so I'm using another machine here to interact with you. Anyway, I just looked at the sources.lst file and all active lines point to a "precise" repository (I started the procedure with do-release-upgrade)11:27
lordievaderregiov: Did you run an apt-get update before running apt-get -f install?11:28
regiovI can try that now - I assume this should have been performed by do-release-upgrade, otherwise it wouldn't download all packages in 7 hours. anyway, let me to that...11:30
regiovlordievader: no luck. same python dependency error.11:31
lordievaderregiov: Is it an idea to simply start over? i.e. make a fresh install of Precise.11:31
regiovlordievader: I should note that before getting this error I tried to manually install (dpkg -i) the python-debian package that I downloaded from ubuntu archives11:32
=== Guest63034 is now known as kannix
regiovlordievader: fresh install would be complicated, because I'm trying to restore a backup11:33
=== kannix is now known as Guest63034
lordievaderregiov: Would a sudo apt-get install python2.7 work, I wonder.11:35
monkeyjuiceshould he remove that package he installed first lordievader?11:35
lordievadermonkeyjuice: I'm not sure. He might try it...11:36

lordievaderregiov: What happens when you try to install the libc6 package?11:39
kubuntu_hi all11:39
lordievaderHey kubuntu_11:40
regiovlordievader: monkeyjuice: dpkg -r python-debian: "dependency problems  prevent removal: gdebi-core & apt-xapian depend on it"11:40
lordievaderregiov: Ugh, lets not do that.11:41
regiovok, so tried to install it again11:41
lordievaderregiov: It?11:42
regiovlordievader: python-debian11:42
regiovnow let me try libc6...11:42
regiovlordievader: apt-get install libc6: "unmet dependencies: libc-dev-bin depends libc6 < 2.12 but 2.15 is to be installed; libc6 depends libc-bin 2.15 but 2.11.1 is to be installed, then other 3 dependencies issues" :-(11:45
lordievaderregiov: Well you are quite in the dependency hell.11:45
regiovlordievader: yes. upgrading has never been smooth for me, but this time it's really a nightmare. but this is also the first time I'm upgrading between LTS versions.11:47
lordievaderregiov: Perhaps this can help http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=947124&p=5962046#post596204611:48

regiovlordievader: apt-get clean will erase all downloaded files, right? considering ~1k pagakes weren't installed, this means a few more hours to download them again...11:50

regiovlordievader: (or anyone else) at some point I tried to manually install a package using dpkg -i, but this introduced lots of dependencies issues. how can I "cancel" that operation without removing the existing version of the package that is already installed on my system?12:20
akshayI have upgraded my ubuntu to 13.04, I previously had kubuntu too, now after upgrade my KDE packages are broken, and Kubuntu doesnt open up :(12:22
akshaytried dpkg reconfiguring also, nothing helps to fix kdm :( what to do ?12:23
akshayplease help12:26
goodtimei have a idea akshay12:29
goodtimeakshay: i think i have a idea12:29
goodtimeits a easy one too12:30
goodtimeapt-get kde-full12:30
goodtimeapt-get install  kde-full12:31
goodtimethat should work akshay12:31
akshaygoodtime: yes i l try that once more, but initially i did the same12:42
akshaygoodtime: is this a serious problem , because I really need to use Kubuntu considering my project in KDE12:42
akshaygoodtime: i did this, but it says everything is upgraded...12:43
akshayany other suggestion?12:43
lordievaderakshay: Support for Raring is in #ubuntu+112:44
ubottuUbuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) will be the 18th release of Ubuntu, Discussion and support until final release in #ubuntu+112:44
lordievaderregiov: You are still suffering in your dependency hell?12:45
regiovlordievader: yes :-(12:45
goodtimelo lordievader12:46
lordievaderregiov: monkeyjuice's link didn't solve anything?12:46
regiovlordievader: yes and no. I'm trying to figure out if there's any way to "undo" my manual attempt to install the python-debian package without removing the existing installed package (both operations fail, so I don't want to perform any of them).12:49
regiovjust want to keep the existing package and try to sort out the other problems that will appear12:49
lordievaderregiov: I'm drifting more and more to the opinion that a fresh install is easier..12:51
lordievaderregiov: What was the output of dpkg --configure -a?12:54
regiovlordievader: summarizing the output: pkg update-notifier-common depends on python-debian, however this last one is not configured yet, while python-debian depends on python2.7, which is not installed12:58
regiovI'll manually download a libc6 package compatible with python2.712:59
liudasnot sure if this is the place to ask, but ... is there any setting in KDE to auto clean old notifications? i mean: if i don't click on X at every notification in a while there are plenty of them, so maybe it's possible to set them dissapeare automatically let's say after 30 minutes?12:59
akshay_ubottu: does that imply that kubuntu wont work in raring as of now ?12:59
ubottuakshay_: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)12:59
akshay_lordievader: does that imply that kubuntu wont work in raring as of now ?13:00
Mamarokakshay: Kubuntu works perfectly fine in Raring13:12
Mamarokakshay: but you are asking the question in the wrong channel,. Raring is not released yet, so please ask Raring related questions in #ubuntu+113:13
lordievaderakshay: No, I'm just stating that this is not the correct channel to ask for support. Support for Raring is in #ubuntu+1, Kubuntu Raring runs fine here too :D13:13
Questhow can I restrict users to only use one command ("passwd") to just be able to change their password. and cannot do anything else in console?13:20
akshay_rMamarok: okay, but finally problems solved :) It runs in my ststem too now :) thanks !13:21
lordievaderQuest: Why do you want to do that? Do you realize what this means?13:21
lordievaderQuest: Effectively you create a user that can only change their password. It cannot do anything else. It cannot run a UI, or anything else.13:22
lordievaderQuest: In this case I'd say blacklisting is better than whitelisting.13:23
Questlordievader,  for sftp13:24
Questi only want them to run sftp and in console . only change their password with passwd command.13:25
akshay_rMamarok: are the application stable enough in this latest version of as of now ?13:26

Mamaroknothing unstable I can see13:29

akshay_rMamarok: okay, no unusual crahes of Muon package manager gave me some kind of doubts..13:36
Mamarokwell, I don't use Muon, I use the Konsole13:40
Questhow can I restrict users to only use one command ("passwd") to just be able to change their password. and cannot do anything else in console? its for just giving them sftp acces. how is it possible?13:40
MamarokQuest: that sounds more like a server related question, not KDE specific13:41
Mamarokyou don't give people access to a desktop konsole just for changing a password13:42

Snowhogyahyaa: Is the Firefox bookmarks on the same PC that Chrome is on?17:13
yahyaaor no17:13
Snowhogyahyaa: And are both Firefox and Chrome in the same OS -- Kubuntu??17:13
yahyaawell the file is on a usb drive17:14
lordievaderQuest: Ok, where did you get these parameters from?17:14
yahyaaand firefox is not installed17:14
Questlordievader,  goodgle17:14
Questgoodgirl . i mean google17:15
Snowhogyahyaa: What is the name of the file (and the file extension) of the bookmark file on the USB?17:15
lordievaderQuest: Can you give me  link?17:15
Snowhogyahyaa: Well, .json isn't a recognizable file type extension. How did you create it, or did you just copy it to the USB?17:17
lordievaderHave to do some chores, be back later.17:17
yahyaain firefox i went to backup bookmarks and that is exactly what it creates17:18
yahyaaas long as I am using firefox i am able to upload them to the browser17:18
yahyaathats y I wanted to use firefox but as of yesterday it won't install anymore17:19
Snowhogyahyaa: In a console, can you list the contents of the file; is it 'readable', i.e., is it a text file?17:20
Questlordievader,      <bean> Quest, http://www.howtoforge.com/chrooted-ssh-sftp-tutorial-debian-lenny read that17:21
Questlordievader,  <sekhmet> Quest: The following /etc/ssh/sshd_config snippet would restrict any user in the "sftponly" group to only be able to use sftp: http://www.fpaste.org/DQdA/17:22
yahyaahow would I open it in a console?17:22
yahyaano it is not a text file17:22
Snowhogyahyaa: Text means that it isn't a compressed or binary file type.17:23
tsimpson.json is plain text17:23
tsimpsonit's just machine readable too17:23
Snowhogtsimpson: Thanks. Can it just be renamed to .html so it can be imported into Chrome?17:23
tsimpsonno, JSON is not HTML17:24
yahyaaI know but that is how firefox creates it backup bookmarks by default17:24
tsimpsonyahyaa: you can get chrome to import bookmarks and settings from firefox for you17:29
yahyaathats what I am told but how?17:30
yahyaathe file extension is .json17:30
yahyaanot html17:30
Snowhogtsimpson: yahyaa doesn't have Firefox install.17:31
yahyaaexactly for some wierd reason it won't install anymore17:31
tsimpsonyou can probably just put that .json file in the place where firefox stores it17:32
tsimpsonfrom chrome you go to Settings and under "Users" there's a "Import bookmarks and setting..." button17:34
yahyaadid that but it only looks for .html files17:35
Questmore elaboration : this config http://pastebin.ca/2352079 in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config  is not letting the openssh server to startup. whats wrong in it? i commented the out to make it work. now ssh server is runing.  the only logs i get is ssh status stop/waiting and Invalid user plant from  . if i follow this http://www.serverubuntu.it/SFTP-chroot it says this http://pastebin.ca/235210917:39
Snowhogyahyaa: Private chat? I think I can help you with firefox install. I just did it on my Kubuntu 12.10. It initially gave me the same error you got. I fixed the issue.17:39
=== kubuntu is now known as Guest34062
lordievaderQuest: Do you define the user plant somewhere in your sshd config?17:45
Questlordievader,  no17:46
Snowhogyahyaa: You still with us?17:47
lordievaderQuest: If you remove the ForceCommand line from your snippit does it work then?17:49
Questlordievader,  now error changed . and openssh not starting17:50
Quest did that. but now cant ssh . $ sudo service ssh status17:50
Quest<Quest> ssh stop/waiting17:50
Questlordievader,  let me see for force command17:50
Snowhogyahyaa: ??17:55
MamarokQuest: what exactly are you trying to do, setting up a file server?17:55
Questlordievader,  no use17:56
QuestMamarok,  chrooting17:57
lordievaderQuest: Make your config exactly the same as the guide you gave me earlier, that should work.17:59
Questlordievader,  which guid. i gave you two18:00
MamarokQuest: yes, but what for?18:00

Questlordievader,  nop.18:06
lordievaderQuest: I have a feeling there are people in #ubuntu-server with more experience in this field. This channel is still desktop-based after all.18:06
Questno help18:06
Quest i just deleted /var/log/auth.log and i dont see it recreated. i recrated it with sudo. blank file but even after a reboot. its no being populated. stil blank19:03

ubottuQuest: Please don't ask the same question in multiple Ubuntu channels at the same time. Many helpers are in more than one channel and it's not fair to them or the other people seeking support.19:04
Snowhogtsimpson: yahyaa is a happy camper. Firefox is installed; he has his bookmarks, and chromium is fully uninstalled.19:11

ronalds_mazI installed kde again, how to get sound indicator19:37
ronalds_mazcan I trasfer everything from ubuntu as it would be clear kubuntu?19:38
Ziut3Ksomeone know why I can't get znc ?19:43
Ziut3KI always have "invalid password" but it's impossible password is right19:43
QuestI encrypted /homes while installing ubuntu. how come i can browse other peoples /homes. ?20:25
SnowhogQuest: Well, if you encrypted /home, then all user accounts under /home/ were encrypted; only one encryption key.20:33
Questyou mean i or anyone can cd to others homes?20:34
SnowhogYou can, as you were the installer of Kubuntu.20:34
QuestSnowhog,  if i login as another account? then i can?20:35
SnowhogQuest: But again, if you encrypted the /home specifically, and not /home/yourusername, then any account that existed before you encrypted is encrypted under the one key.20:37
QuestSnowhog,  i did that on install20:37
Questbut now i see i cannot go to the original installer user home . but i can go to other user accounts. (from any user account)20:38
SnowhogQuest: Then you have only the one user (yours) /home directory (or you should). There is always the /home/root directory, but that wouldn't have been encrypted.20:38
Questso if had user1 setup at install time and choosed encrypt /home folder . who can go into other user accounts and who cannot?20:40
SnowhogQuest: Ignore my last. There isn't a /home/root directory. There is a /home/lost+found20:40
SnowhogAs the installer of Kubuntu, you belong to the sudoers group, meaning you can do anything on your system when required. Other users created afterwards are not part of the sudoers usergroup unless you specifically add them to it, so they can't do what you can. They may be able to "see" the other users files, but they would not be able to access them (read or execute).20:43
QuestSnowhog,   i did install with user1  . i can browse all homes. but funny thing is.  user3 cannot browse user1 home but CAN browse all other homes. why?20:50
BluesKajQuest, still cross posting eh ?20:52
QuestBluesKaj,  no body answers21:08
BluesKajit doesn't matter Quest most helpers in here are also in #ubuntu , so stick to one chat and concentrate you questions there21:10
SnowhogQuest: This will be helpful for you:  http://askubuntu.com/questions/44542/what-is-umask-and-how-does-it-work21:39
BluesKajSnowhog, I told him to stop crossposting and choose one chat for his questions. Looks like he's chosen #ubuntu21:41
SnowhogBluesKaj: Thanks.21:42
BluesKajSnowhog, np21:42
BluesKajquest you'll get more help there for you issues since they appear to be ubuntu core and not desktop related21:44
