DarthFrogObsequiousNewt: This is a Kubuntu support channel.  Kubuntu uses KDE.  KDE uses Qt, not GTK.  You'd be better off asking GTK questions in  a channel that provides support for GNOME.02:24
ObsequiousNewtThat too.02:34
ObsequiousNewtWait, what?02:34
ObsequiousNewtI run GTK applcations in KDE.02:34
ObsequiousNewtLike Firefox for instance. It doesn't read from ~/.XCompose, but from the default.02:35
ObsequiousNewtThat's my problem.02:35
valorieTheFakeazneD525: interesting idea -- how many people run a antivirus though?04:23
valorieI haven't for over 10 years04:23
TheFakeazneD525valorie: its still a good idea :o04:24
TheFakeazneD525I mean, sure, linux is secure, but why take risks?04:24
valorieso clamav has no gui?04:24
TheFakeazneD525plus, not that clamtk is bad, but a qt thing would be nice04:24
TheFakeazneD525valorie: ClamTK04:24
valorieah04:24
TheFakeazneD525but it doesn't have the KDE look and feel when I run it :c04:25
valorieI think I looked around after moving to linux from windows, but since it wasn't needed, never did anything more04:25
TheFakeazneD525hmm, well with the growing popularity of linux on the desktop, its better to stop a virus plauge before it starts04:26
valorieget yourself Qt Creator and go wild!04:26

valorieit would probably really take off if you made it usable in android as well04:27
valoriebecause that *is* infectable04:27
TheFakeazneD525true04:27
valorienot that linux is safe by default04:27
valorieI agree04:27
TheFakeazneD525hmm, valorie, how hard is making a frontend in Qt?04:27
valorieha, you are asking the wrong person04:27
TheFakeazneD525like, for now, just say, a dialouge with a button :L04:27
valorieperhaps find an application that is just a front-end, and copy it somewhat?04:28
TheFakeazneD525hmm04:28
valoriethat's how I learned HTML04:29
valoriecopied pages I liked, and changed things until they broke04:29
TheFakeazneD525Hmm, a clamav frontend would need...04:29
TheFakeazneD525a scan button, log output, requires kdesudo auth, a update defs button, and some other stuff04:30

silv3r_m00ni am using nvidia drivers, but where is exactly is the system configured to use the nvidia drivers ? which configuration file or what ?13:05
vistakillerhave you install the drivers?13:08
silv3r_m00nvistakiller: yeah i installed the drivers, they are working, but out of curiosity i want to know where exactly is the configuration that tells the system to use nvidia drivers (instead of something else like nouveau)13:12
vistakilleri think is in nvidia-xconfig and i think that there nvidia settings save the changes13:14
silv3r_m00nvistakiller: where ? where are the settings saved ? which file ? or is that just because the nvidia driver file is placed inside /lib/modules/3.13.0-24-generic/updates/dkms/  it gets loaded ?13:16
vistakillertake a look here if that helps13:17
vistakillerhttp://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/en/man1/alt-nvidia-96-xconfig.1.html13:17
vistakilleri think all the settings is under /etc/X1113:18
silv3r_m00nthere is no xorg.conf or xf86config file in my system and /etc/X11$ grep -ri 'nvidia' ./  gave nothing13:18
silv3r_m00nnvidia is not written anywhere13:18
vistakilleryes xorg.conf was 3 years ago :P13:19
vistakillermany have change from back then13:19
vistakillerdo a research under /etc/X11 folder13:19
silv3r_m00ni already grepped the /etc/X11  there is nothing related to nvidia in there13:19
silv3r_m00nhow does the driver come into effect , thats what i want to know13:20
vistakillerthis question in linux has not simple answer :P13:21
BluesKajvistakiller, lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use'13:21
silv3r_m00nBluesKaj: that shows what driver is in use, but where is it configured to use that driver ?13:23
vistakillertake a look and at /etc/modprobe.d13:23
vistakillerthere you can blacklist noeuveu driver or is the settings of nvidia etc13:23
BluesKajwhen you install the nvidia driver, nouveau is disabled, there's no need to blacklist it13:24
lordievadersilv3r_m00n: It is probably initrd/initramfs that tell it to use nouveau/nvidia.13:25
silv3r_m00nlordievader: which file ?13:25
silv3r_m00nsomewhere inside /etc/initramfs-tools/   ?13:25
lordievadersilv3r_m00n: That's whay I think, yes.13:26
silv3r_m00nlordievader: nothing in there, $ grep -ri 'nvidia' /etc/initramfs-tools/   gives nothing13:26
BluesKajsilv3r_m00n, so what's your issue then?13:27
silv3r_m00nBluesKaj: want to know, which configuration file tells my system to use nvidia instead of nouveau13:27
silv3r_m00nthe order should be "written" somewhere i guess13:28
lordievadersilv3r_m00n: Might also be /etc/modules13:28
silv3r_m00nlordievader: grep: /etc/modules/: Not a directory13:28
silv3r_m00nlordievader: that file has no mention of nvidia either13:29
silv3r_m00nokay, i think i found it, this file seems to be controlling it13:30
silv3r_m00n/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf13:30
silv3r_m00nit also contains "blacklist nouveau"13:30
lordievaderIsn't that just extra options?13:30
silv3r_m00nmeans ?13:31
lordievaderWhen loading a module you can specify options. Those are usually in there, or so I believe.13:31
silv3r_m00nwhat is the function of the /etc/modprobe.d directory ? to provide instructions about how and what modules to load ?13:31
silv3r_m00nthe blacklisting of nouveau is being done by that file for sure13:32
lordievaderhttp://linux.die.net/man/5/modprobe.d13:32
BluesKajthe nvidia driver takes precedence once it's installed , /usr/bin/X11/nvidia-detector13:33
silv3r_m00nBluesKaj: some utility program runs every boot and loads the nvidia driver ?13:35
silv3r_m00nthe nvidia-detector is not present on my system, but there are couple of other nvidia-* programs13:36
silv3r_m00nokay its there13:36
BluesKajsilv3r_m00n, /user/bin/ loads default apps at startup afaik13:37
silv3r_m00nand it says "none"13:37
BluesKajwhat says13:37

ritvikgI am not able to configure php properly, there seems to be some problem15:42
lordievaderritvikg: What seems to be the problem with php?15:44
Piciritvikg: php on nginx is much different than on Apache. Have you setup php5-fpm?15:45
ritvikgYes, I installed these packages : php5 php5-fpm php5-mysql15:46
ritvikgNow when I create a phptest file, and when I open that in browser, I don't see the php info page, instead the browser downloads that file for me15:46
ritvikgI am using this for installing, (if it helps) : http://www.unixmen.com/install-lemp-server-nginx-mysql-mariadb-php-ubuntu-13-10-server/15:47
Piciritvikg: is php5-fpm running?15:49

alan_smithhello there... anyone help me install my hp printer on kubuntu? It's supposed to work outta the box on ubuntu, the model is deskjet 2050 j510 (cheapest one).16:04
BluesKajalan_smith, tell us what you've done so far to install the printer16:06
alan_smithBluesKaj: ok, fyi, the printer is fully supported by hplip, which is installed here (latest from repos), the printer is listed on the print jobs tool (add printers list) twice:16:08
alan_smithi can't copy the info, lemme post a ss16:09
alan_smithhow can I share a ss?16:11
alan_smithscreenshot16:11
TheFakeazneD525alan_smith: prtsc16:11
TheFakeazneD525then save, and put on imgur.com or something16:11
BluesKajthen imagebin16:11
alan_smithok16:11
alan_smithok, here you go: http://imagebin.org/30919816:12
alan_smithbtw, the snapshot tool could have the option to send the files to imagebin...16:12
alan_smithor other service16:13
alan_smithi don't know why the printer is duplicated and why one shows as an hplip device and other as usb device16:13
alan_smithperhaps the hplip is the printer thing and the usb device the scan thing? it doesn't make sense it's listed under printers though16:14
alan_smithany ideas? should i just try to setup the hplip one and ignore the other?16:16
BluesKajyes16:16
arhi. where can i enable ssh-agent and gpg-agent in kde globally?16:16
ar(system-wide)16:17
aron some distributions it's a matter of editing a shell script16:17
alan_smithwow! it works a treat! :) mwahahaha! thank you guys!16:21
alan_smithgonna try scanning16:22
alan_smithwow! it works a treat! :) (2)16:27
alan_smiththat 'skanlite' app is too basic though16:27
alan_smithnext time i'm buying a printer i'm surely going to take a look at hplip page to see the level of support. awesome stuff, even this cheapo printer works perfectly :)16:29
alan_smithit's unfortunate though that it seems the only printers that works decently are the hp ones16:29
alan_smiththe cartridges for canons are way cheaper and the quality is better on the same price range16:30
alan_smithany ideas on why support for some printes has been dropped?16:34
alan_smithdoes it happen to built-in drivers/modules also? I mean, will the drivers built in the kernel or 3rd party ones (e.g.hplip) be dropped after a while?16:36
alan_smith*tumbleweeds rolls around in the whistling wind*16:40
TheFakeazneD525  alan_smith probably lack of use for said printers16:41
alan_smithTheFakeazneD525: yeah, possibly... anyway, I plan to keep this printer until it eventually die, I noticed that the support were dropped for some printers though... it seems that's not the case for hplip so I should not worry more than necessary :)16:43
alan_smithfor example, the apollo printers only works for ubuntu versions until 8.10... sad thing imho16:44
alan_smithsupport should never be dropped, I mean, I understand if they discontinue the driver development and stuff, but you should always be able to use an old hardware16:44
