xvicariousHey, I've had a little trouble in getting grub set up properly.  When I installed it said grub had failed.  So I booted from grub recovery and tried running boot-repair.  I think the problem is I have an EFI parition on my SSD, and by boot is on one of my two HHDs.  I have grub-efi installed, but I can't seem to get it to work.  It complains about unknown filesystem when it boots and goes to recovery.02:54

amichairI upgraded to KDE 4.11.00 a few days ago, and since then whenever I turn on the second monitor (TV) both screens go blaack and all I see is the mouse cursor. disabling/enabling desktop effects via a keyboard shortcut I added brings things back to normal. Is this a known issue? what component should it be reported on?07:35
dougcanHi, I just installed Kubuntu 13.04 on a compaq laptop, i have two problems, one I cannot find a solution to after searching, apparently this is a 13.04 only issue.  How do I set up automatic touchpad disable when I have a mouse plugged in usb?07:36
dougcanthe other problems I think i can figure out later07:37
dougcantouchpad issue is a biggie right now.  systemsetting doesnt have anything07:37
dougcanI do have kde-config-touchpad installed07:38
dougcanbut it apparently doesn;t work07:38
dougcansupposed to have a panel wiget, but could not find it07:38
dougcanamichair, what videocard do you have?07:40
amichairan old nvidia07:40
dougcanit's a driver issue, you can try installing the non-free nvidia driver, or better, get a newer card07:40
dougcansince the new xorg change, a lot of older drivers got broken07:41
dougcanforcing many of us to get a newer card07:41
amichairdougcan: I'm using the proprietary driver last time I checked07:41
dougcanI went through this in a dual monitor setup07:41
dougcanwhat model is your nvidia?07:42
amichairdougcan: and it's an onboard 9300, no external card07:42
amichairnvidia driver 304.88 is what the nvidia settings dialog says07:43
dougcanamichair, I'm using a geforce 7950 card and it works in a dual monitors setup,  and using proprietary driver07:44
amichairmine worked perfectly for a long time, just started getting blanks a few days ago, and also updated to kde 4.11 a few days ago, I thought it was related. Maybe there was also some driver update I didn't notice at the same time.07:45
dougcan304.88 is still beta, you may need to roll back to version 173-update07:46
dougcanwhat happen is that Xorg recently made some majorchanges and broke a lot of drivers as a result07:46
amichairdougcan: interesting, I haven't messed with drivers for years, it's just updating automatically07:47
dougcanin the setting panel theres a driver icon, click on that and see what options you have07:47
amichairdougcan: I don't see it in system settings, but can run it manually from k menu search, 'Additional Drivers', is that what you meant?07:49
dougcanyes that's it07:49
amichairdougcan: there's nvidia_304 maked with green but says it's activated but not currently in use, and has no description07:51
dougcanis there any other driverd listed as well?07:51
dougcanshould be a 173-update listed in there07:52
amichairdougcan: yep, the version appears only in a link in the description: 304-updates,  313-updates, 310-updates, 310, 173, glx07:53
dougcanokay, you have a newer card than mine :D so try the 319, then 313 and so on, if they don't work, use 173 although it mostly support older cards07:55
dougcan310, not 31907:55
dougcanalas you'll have to reboot, and lose connection here.  since no one replied to y question, I'll be signing off and hit the sack, but if you want me to wait I will07:57
amichairnah I'll play around, try a few of them - what are the -updates ones?07:57
dougcannewer and bug fixed of the normal drivers07:58
dougcanim getting tired my typing is horrible07:58
amichairok, I'll try, thanks dougcan!07:58
dougcanno problem, you're welcome.07:58

not_foundquestion: What is the major difference running Kubuntu 12.04 with the backports PPA enabled vs say 13.04 with backports enabled, don't you end up running the same version of KDE etc?09:39
Kalidarnhas anyone noticed a weird regression where when you rightclick on a file and alter the "Application preference order" that the changes aren't saved?10:25
Kalidarn(using latest KDE from the kubuntu PPA)10:25
Kalidarnie 4.1110:26
Kalidarni noticed this bug occured straight after the update10:26
Kalidarnalso it reset all my preferences, for example I preferred to use QVim over Qt Creator for editing .cpp files, but now Qt Creator is first in the Application Preference Order10:27
Kalidarnreminds me of an annoying bug that plagued filevault users in MacOSX for ages ;)10:27
Kalidarnthanks for solving that shadeslayer https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=321706 :)10:34
ubottuKDE bug 321706 in kcm_filetypes "Some file type association can't be changed anymore" [Major,Confirmed]10:34
not_foundasked some time ago but no luck so let me try again :) - what is the difference between running Kubuntu 12.04 with the backports enabled vs 13.04 also with backports enabled? You get the latest KDE with both, is it the kernel and same other base system files that remain different or do they also get updated?12:43
smartboyhwnot_found: No kernel updates, it's the same...12:45
not_foundsmartboyhw: so typically 12.04 is now on 3.2.x and 13.04 on 3.8/9.x ...? if so then thanks for clarifying (still pretty awesome how fast Kubuntu gets the latest versions of KDE SC :D )12:47

boringntphello, how can i stop ntp from running? i stopped the service with sudo service ntp stop, but after reboot it's running again, and even when i don't reboot, it starts again on its own a few hours after i turn it off; i tried the solutions in this thread http://askubuntu.com/questions/29663/how-do-i-disable-ntpd but they didn't help16:47

dbc254little printer problem. Running 12.04 and my printer is a Samsung ML-201017:17
boringntpNanduX: there is "ntp": http://paste.ubuntu.com/5996793/ in /etc/cron.daily17:17
dbc254Prints just fine, but the paper gets stuck in the printer the last 1/2". I pull it free and printing is just fine. Unjam the printer by opening/closing a door and it feeds a sheet to "clear the jam"17:18
dbc254It's almost as if the paper size is wrong. Trouble finding a new driver. I'm hoping that's all it is???17:19
NanduXboringntp nope, that script is just rotating logs... I don't know what else could be starting a service17:22

quarkyI don't have any decoration anymore since upgrade from 4.10 to 4.11 on kubuntu 13.04. So I can't resize any windows and I don't have any titlebar. I used the kubuntu backport ppa. I tried to remove my .kde but it didn't solve the problem. I also try to use the proprietary drivers (nvidia) without any change. I also try to disable transparancy and all desktop effects. I still experience the same problem and haven't find any more solution19:38
quarky to try. Thanks for any help.19:38
BluesKajquarky, have you run an upgrade since or even a dist-upgrade ?19:45
quarkyYes I have run an update + upgrade few minutes ago but not a dist-upgrade but I am using last kubuntu version19:51
BluesKajdist-upgrade doesn't upgrade to a new release , it upgrades your existing packages on the present OS only , quarky19:53
quarkyok sorry for that. I am doing a dist-upgrade right now. I hope it will solve the problem. I will give you feedbacks when done (~40min with my slow connection).19:58

shadowbrokerso ever since switching to kubuntu, my .bash_profile no longer works. i've lived with this for months now (mostly because i was being lazy) and I even upgraded to ubuntu 13.04, but the problem still exists22:09
shadowbrokerany idea why this could be?22:10
slatenailsi just got notice that a new version of kubuntu is available22:11
slatenailsunless every calendar ever is lying to me 13.10 can't be out yet22:11
NanduXit's the alpha version22:12
slatenailsi see22:12
slatenailsthat is strange though, i have raring all across /etc/apt/sources.list22:12
Unit193slatenails: What does /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades have in it?22:14
NanduXthe notice is just the update-notifier, IIRC there was an option for it to show a notice when a new dev version was available22:14
slatenailsin addition to a ton of comments22:14
aries1200hello, why kubuntu and not ubuntu?22:34
shadowbrokerare you using unity?22:35
aries1200i'm using mageia22:36
aries1200do you know mageia distro?22:36
shadowbrokerunfortunately, no. but the reason i switched to kubuntu is because unity is absolutely horrid :P22:37

shadowbrokerhm. added 'source ~/.bash_profile' to .xprofile, but it still doesn't work22:42
shadowbrokerso i'm using rsync in .bash_profile22:44
shadowbrokeris it possible the location i'm referring to hasnt finished mounting yet?22:45
shadowbroker(both source and destination are different HDDs)22:45
yofelwhat's .xprofile ? ~/.profile should be read on login, but I never heard of .xprofile22:45
aries1200somebody know mageia?22:46
shadowbrokersome people online were suggesting .xprofile because it has to do with graphical login?22:46
shadowbrokeri'll try .profile i guess22:46
shadowbrokeri just dont get why .bash_profile isn't being loaded instead of .profile22:46
shadowbrokerman bash clearly states that .bash_profile is read first :/22:47
yofelit should read it on login, yeah22:47
shadowbrokerit doesnt though. rsync is never being run. i dont get why22:48
shadowbrokersourcing .bash_profile from .profile doesnt work either23:02
Micheal_Hello I need a hand with using scp and smb together23:16
GiGaHuRtZMicheal_: elaborate a bit?23:20
GiGaHuRtZusually one uses sftp (scp/ssh dir sharing) or smb23:21
Micheal_well need to know how to set it up scp /home/folder smb:/NAS/Folder23:21
GiGaHuRtZhmm, generally I would mount the smb folder23:23
GiGaHuRtZusing cifs or smbfs23:23
GiGaHuRtZis the smb password protected etc?23:23
GiGaHuRtZwhat you are trying to do is kind of pointless23:24
GiGaHuRtZif you have smb access, use smb23:24
GiGaHuRtZif you have ssh access, use scp23:24
GiGaHuRtZnot both23:24
Micheal_the NAS that I am coping to doesnt have scp access... I cant login to it on a command line23:25
GiGaHuRtZOk, so setup an cifs or smbfs23:26
GiGaHuRtZand just copy it that way23:26
GiGaHuRtZyou can scp if it does have ssh/scp23:26
GiGaHuRtZ!wiki smbfs23:26
GiGaHuRtZubottu: wiki smbfs23:26
GiGaHuRtZi have no idea how ubottu works lmao23:26
GiGaHuRtZubottu: wiki smbfs23:27
GiGaHuRtZweird i alllowed it to msg me now, and its not23:27
GiGaHuRtZ!wiki smbfs23:28
GiGaHuRtZMicheal_: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MountWindowsSharesPermanently23:28
GiGaHuRtZMicheal_: what is the NAS running?23:29
GiGaHuRtZlinux? windows?23:29
GiGaHuRtZthat wiki should walk you through it23:30
GiGaHuRtZbut scping to a smb share will not work for sure :P23:30
GiGaHuRtZespecially since the box doesnt support scp/ssh23:30
shadowbrokerman. kinda hoped the update might allow .bash_profile to load. nope!23:30
GiGaHuRtZshadowbroker: whats the issue?23:30
GiGaHuRtZim a zsh kinda guy as of last week (so much more powerful I didnt know what i was missing all these years)23:31
shadowbroker.bash_profile, .profile, .xprofile... none of them load when i login23:31
GiGaHuRtZbut i might be able to help23:31
GiGaHuRtZshadowbroker: thats simple23:31
GiGaHuRtZedit ~/.bashrc23:31
GiGaHuRtZput source .bash_profile23:32
shadowbrokerbut .bashrc is per-shell23:32
GiGaHuRtZper user23:32
shadowbrokeri dont want my backup script running everytime i open up a new terminal :P23:32
GiGaHuRtZnot per shell23:32
GiGaHuRtZthen you need to script it correctly23:32
GiGaHuRtZask in #bash23:32
