phoenixzTrying to install Kubuntu in a machine with an NVidia 7990 card, on graphics start I see only garbled white with crap screen.. I do have text mode. Can I somehow install Kubuntu in text only, then install the nvidia drivers?04:40
phoenixzor, alternatively, install the nvidia drivers in text only?04:41
phoenixzor, what drivers do I need to install for 7990 support? I see nvidia-173 for example, but I have no idea if thats the right one or not..04:46

=== bob is now known as Guest33690
BluesKajM1ke, ubuntu or kubuntu?14:47
M1keHey BluesKaj I am using Kubuntu14:53
M1keI will be back gotta re-boot14:53
=== mike__ is now known as M1ke
M1keOk BluesKaj I am back. Can you help me with After-Install14:58
BluesKajM1ke, so what are you trying to do after install, exactly?15:27
M1keI try running the program "After-Install" it is supposed to have a lot of the things that are missing (google chrome, flash, ect) I succesfully installed the program and when i try to run it it prompt me for a password but it never runs. I found the program here> http://www.unixmen.com/top-things-installing-ubuntu-14-0413-1013-0412-1012-04/ It is in section 2.15:32
M1keI would also like a desktop music player - maybe something like iheart or pandora, is there anything like that or kubuntu15:41
serioux1i am using amarok15:46
serioux1it is better to install any software from software center15:49
BluesKajM1ke, that after install is for ubuntu and  gtk apps and unity/gnome , not for kubuntu and KDE desktop, try this : http://www.binarytides.com/better-kubuntu-14-04/16:03

Guest62151Hi, is it okay to ask a question about a strange behaviour of KDE, or should I just start a topic in kubuntuforums.net?18:45
Guest62151I mean here :)18:45
BluesKajGuest62151, yes just ask your question here.18:50
Guest62151I have Kubuntu 14.04.1 installed on two notebooks, and several virtualbox machines. On the first notebook, with nvidia graphics and properietary drivers, my problem (see later) does not appear.18:53
Guest62151On the other machines, so the other notebook with intel graphics, and all of my virtualbox vm's, there is a little annoyance:18:53
Guest62151When I resize windows, the windows' title's text's font start to bounce. By bouncing I mean that for specific characters the distance between each other increases/decreases.18:53
Guest62151Furthermore, because of this change in the character's distances, sometimes, when the window is sized "unproperly", certain fonts are way to close to each other, they are almost touching.18:55
BluesKajGuest62151, so the the vms aren't passthrus to the host's hardware/gpus I presume?19:01
Guest62151Hmm, I don't quite understand. I enabled 3D acceleration for the vm's, set 128 MB video ram, and installed guest additions in kubuntu.19:03
Guest62151That's all I did regarding gpu's19:03
Guest62151I also noticed, that with nvidia's proprieatary drivers the font handling is different. For example, the same size values produce much larger fonts (compared to nouveau).19:04
alvinGuest62151: That is correct, but not in all cases. Take a look at the Option "UseEdidDpi" "False" setting in xorg.conf20:00
alvinThen set the DPI manually. I prefer nouvea, to get it right, but there are reasons too to use the proprietary driver.20:00
Guest62151alvin: AFAIK, we don't need xorg.conf's anymore.20:01
Guest62151Should I generate one?20:01
alvinYes, except when using the proprietary driver.20:01
alvinYes, but you can use a very small one. Just for those settings20:01
18VAA6ERIanyone knows where the quassel profile folder is saved in kubuntu? i can't find it under .kde/share/apps20:01
alvinOnly a Section "Monitor"20:01
Guest62151alvin: The proprietary drivered system works perfectly.20:02
Guest62151alvin: I have this problem with the intel integrated based notebook, and all of my virtualbox vms.20:02
alvinI have no experience with virtualbox and less with 3D acecleration in virtualbox. As far as I know it could be the method virtualbox uses to render the screen. (Isn't that RDP?) For qemu based virtual machines that's spice or VNC. That protocol might also be the cause of the distortion20:04
18VAA6ERIanyone knows where the quassel profile folder is saved in kubuntu? i can't find it under .kde/share/apps20:08

valoriewhat can we help you with, Moogly2012?23:09
* valorie observes that here, it's 201423:10
Moogly2012trying to figure out where a certain folder is in Kubuntu23:10
Moogly2012I installed a KDE program called 'AMOR' not sure if you're familiar with it23:10
Moogly2012and I can't seem to locate the folder where it keeps it's files23:10
valorie!info amor23:11
ubottuamor (source: amor): desktop companion. In component universe, is optional. Version 4:4.13.3-0ubuntu0.1 (trusty), package size 189 kB, installed size 584 kB23:11
valorieno, I've not heard of it23:11
valorienice name, though23:11
Moogly2012"Amusing Misuse of Resources23:11
valorieis it targeted at kubuntu (KDE) or ubuntu unity?23:11
TheFakeazneD525its a KDE thing23:12
Moogly2012yeah, it's a kde package23:12
Moogly2012it's part of "KDE Toys" apparently as well23:13
valorieif it is a KDE application, most likely it will be found in ~/.kde/share/apps somewhere23:13
valorieor configs right there23:13
valorievery occasionally you'll find something in ~/.local or ~/.config instead, but those are usually non-KDE applications23:14
Moogly2012yeah everything I found pointed to that dir, but when I went there, the folder "amor" wasn't in there23:14
Moogly2012I'll check .local23:14
Moogly2012oh I think I found it23:16
TheFakeazneD525speaking of misusing resources... there was this "steampunk" plasmoid for KDE... scripted with JS23:16
valoriethere might not be a folder23:16
TheFakeazneD525took a few hundred megs of ram :c23:16
valoriecould be just an rc file or two23:16
Moogly2012@ the steampunk plasmoid23:17
valorieTheFakeazneD525 likes to gum up hir system23:18
Moogly2012I found the folder, apparently Dolphin has decent searching capabilities haha23:18
valorieoh, it does23:18
TheFakeazneD525valorie: speaking of, will x/kscreensavers be ported to Wayland?23:18
valoriesometimes takes awhile23:18
Moogly2012now I just gotta terminal in cause I don't have access to these files23:18
TheFakeazneD525or would it work under XWayland23:18
valorieTheFakeazneD525: that I do not know23:19
valoriei know there is work on the screen locker23:19
Moogly2012apparently there's a /usr/share/kde4/apps/ folder23:19
Moogly2012it's no wonder I couldn't find it23:19
valoriebut screensavers, no idea23:19
Moogly2012thanks for the help guys :)23:20
valorieunless they are a security problem, in which case they will NOT be ported, or supported23:20
valorienot a guy, but you are welcome23:20
Moogly2012guys and gal23:20
valoriethere are women on the internet, contrary to myth!23:21
Moogly2012better yet, thank you valorie :)23:21
Moogly2012well people still say "guys" as a gender neutral term though23:21
valorieeven grandmas like me23:21
valorieMoogly2012: they do, but it does not feel inclusive to me23:21
Moogly2012even on TV when girls say bye to groups of girls they say "see you guys later"23:21
valorieI like including everyone23:21
Moogly2012I'll be sure to keep it in mind then :D23:22
BuntuTechhi valorie23:22
valoriegreets, BuntuTech23:22
BuntuTechvalorie, what is your favorite linux distro?23:23
valoriekubuntu, of course!23:24

valoriewhat are you using now?23:25
Moogly2012crap LOL23:25
valoriethis isn't religion; people can use what they like23:25
BuntuTechwell atm im in my w8 machine but my favorie VM distro is ubuntu23:25
valorieeveryone has different likes and tasts23:26
BuntuTechi liked the way kubuntu looked initially but it was soooo slow23:26
Moogly2012yeah it needs a graphics card at least23:26
Moogly2012although you could disable all the special eye candy effects I think23:26
Moogly2012earlier I was using SliTaz, which runs on about 100MB of your ram,23:27
Moogly2012was interesting23:27
BuntuTechwell i have an i7 quad core 8 thread 12 gb ram anda gtx 645 with a gig of gddr5 ram dedicated23:27
BuntuTechstate of the art23:27
BuntuTechican run a half dozen vm's play the most graphical intense game chat and do skype screen sharing and its not even breathin heavy23:28
BuntuTechall at the same time23:29
Moogly2012yeah but if you don't have the graphics drivers installed23:29
Moogly2012it wont matter23:29
BuntuTechahh hah23:29
valorieI've never found it slow, but I am running on my son's 'old' gaming machine23:29
valorieSysinfo for 'valorie-HP-Pavilion-dv7-Notebook-PC': Running inside KDE 4.14.1 on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS, Trusty Tahr powered by Linux 3.13.0-36-generic, CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz at 1200-2301/2301 MHz, RAM: 7106/7884 MB, Storage: 344/784 GB, 328 procs, 61.39h up23:29

valorieno, I started with Mandrake23:38
valoriethen gentoo (don't recall the desktop choice)23:38
valorieprobably KDE23:38
BuntuTechhow does one evn do that..when i 1st googled "free os" BUNtu was all over it23:38
valoriethen kubuntu23:39
Moogly2012gentoo is kind of whatever you want23:39
valoriewell, I started using linux on the desktop back in ..... 2002 or so23:39
Moogly2012there is no default gentoo desktop lol23:39
BuntuTechid like to create a distro23:39
valorienot many choices back then23:39
Moogly2012if you want to create one you gotta learn plenty of C23:39
valoriewe should take this to #kubuntu-offtopic23:39
Moogly2012or take something like TinyCore or SliTaz and expand on it23:40
