kairox87hello everyone can someone help about how to make partition in kubuntu 14.10 alongside windows 8 on installation please.01:22
=== dan_ is now known as Guest24567
vinnyyou want to dual boot win8 and kubuntu01:46
kairox87yes i want to shrink the partition first in kubuntu but this is the probleme i didn't find a way to do it on installation01:56
vinnyyou can do it from the live medea ,,,,,, with kdepartition manager in kickoff>system ,,,,,,,,BUT I would use the win8 partition utilaty to do the shrinking01:58
kairox87yes i would do it from windows 8 but he tel me that there is an error in the parition so i say maybe i should do it from kbuntu01:59
vinnyshrink in windows ,,, run CHKDSK  then think of instaling ,,,,,,,,,+ you have UEFI to think of and the secure boot thing02:00
vinnyif you have an error in windows ,,,,do the CHKDSK thing first02:00
kairox87yes i have a dell laptop02:01
kairox87yes i already did the test but i think because i don't have a origine version of windows that's why he don't le me but i'm note sure02:01
vinnyyou half to scedule the disk check for a reboot ,,,,it cant check and repare the runing system02:03
kairox87can you explain how to do it more please02:03
vinnylets see ,,,,,havent been in windows in a wile ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, hummmmm ,,, my computer>right click C:drive>properties>tools tab > check disk for errors check auto fix ,,,click ok/apply ,,,,it will have a popup to do it on a reboot ,,,click OK and reboot02:06
kairox87think's that's exactely what i did but i just  start to hate that win 8 when he reboot nothing happen he doesn't repair anything02:07

ViperisthebestI'm trying to install the nvidia drivers with the .run file from the nvidia website but I get the error "The Distributions pre-install script has failed."05:01
ViperisthebestWhy does the pre-install script fail?05:03
=== mkv is now known as m4v
ViperisthebestAnyone here?05:09
qdatabeen a very long time since I did the .run thing with the nvidia05:10
qdatamy guess is either it is looking at your distro version and not recognizing it05:11
qdatasuch might be the case if you were trying this with the 15.04 beta, wild guess on my part05:12
qdatathe other common reasons are you don't have the build tools and/or the correct kernel headers. But these usually give a better descriptive error05:13
Viperisthebeston this one website it says to install build-essential, linux-source, and linux-headers-generic before installing the driver05:17
qdataand the headers need to match your running kernel05:17
Viperisthebestthey will if I install the linux headers i guess05:18
qdatawhy not just install the package?05:18
ViperisthebestWhat package qdata?05:19
qdatathe nvidia driver05:19
ViperisthebestI would be but that other stuff needs installed first05:19
qdataI use Muon Package Manager myself05:20
ViperisthebestI'm using Kubuntu 14.10 stable05:20
kkI have installed kubunutu x64 on windows 8 laptop, UEFI mode, but I selected either "/" partition, or bios_grub partiotion(don't remember). I am able to load from usb. How can I add ubuntu to UEFI boot menu05:20
qdatathe driver through the package manager is already built - you don't need the other stuff05:20
ViperisthebestYou mean the muon package manager lets you install the nvidia graphics driver?05:21
qdatathese are prebuilt, already compiled05:22
qdataI use 14.10 too05:22
qdatarunning nvidia-33105:22
ViperisthebestI use virtualbox, it has hardware and 3d acceleration now05:23
qdataso is your 14.10 install the host or is it a guest?05:23
Viperisthebesta guest05:23
Viperisthebestguest is the virtual machine right05:24
qdatathen you can't install the nvidia driver because it is not seeing the nvidia hardware, but rather the synthetic artificial vbox one05:24
ViperisthebestWhat is the artificial one called?05:25
qdataon some hardware and cpu combinations and later versions of virtualbox there is PCI passthrough. This would allow for you to "see" the nvidia hardware card directly05:25
qdataVirtualBox Graphics Adapter05:27
qdatais how it shows in a WinXP VM05:27
ViperisthebestHow do you activate the PCI passthrough05:28
qdatathe PCI passthrough thing would really be for using a second video card so it could be attached to a guest  while the host OS used the first one05:28
qdatayour cpu and motherboard hardwares have to support certain virtualization extensions for it to work. You would need to research this first.05:30
ViperisthebestWhy couldn't I install the graphics drivers on it? Does virtualization have to be enabled in my bios?05:30
qdataI tried it once with only one video card in the machine and it hard locked, trashed some of the file system in the process so I never tried it again05:31
qdatabecause the entire point of virtualization is to create a "logical" machine05:31
qdatayou should probably spend a little quality time with the virtualbox docs05:32
qdatawhat virtualbox "presents" to a guest machine is NOT the hardware on your motherboard05:33
ViperisthebestI could just install kubuntu on a different harddrive and boot it when I want to play linux games05:45
Viperisthebestif I did that I wouldn't get the error when using the .run file05:46
qdatatrue - but I know next to nothing about gaming05:47
qdatabut if a game is expecting the binary blob drivers for performance reasons running it in a VM guest isn't going to cut it05:48
qdataand the only reason for messing with the .run is if your game requires a newer version of driver which isn't packaged05:49
qdataotherwise just install the package05:49
Viperisthebestfrom muon right05:49
qdataor CLI even, apt-get05:50
qdatawhichever package manager you like best, Muon and the like are simply GUI front-ends for apt-get05:50
qdatado man apt-get and look at what it says05:51
ViperisthebestIf a game is ported to Linux with the Eon wrapper is it the same as running it native?05:54
qdatathat I do not know05:55
ViperisthebestI'm saving up to build a 4k res gaming pc, Do you think it is worth it?05:57
qdataprobably not quite yet05:58
ViperisthebestWhy do you think so?05:58
qdatajust read about google trying out some 4k streaming video stuff and the jist was it's not quite ready for prime time yet05:58
qdatabut my feeling is we are right around the corner for it real soon now05:59
Viperisthebestworth it to build one next year then?05:59
qdata4k res gaming is going to be expensive hardware05:59
qdatamy own feeling is to wait a year or two, let the really rich shake out the problems, then when companies negin to mass market maybe the teething pains might be somewhat ironed out06:01
qdataif you are rich and have lots of money I'd say splurge but most can't really afford it06:02
ViperisthebestIf I ever decide to build one I'm getting the Geforce GTX Titan X SLI06:02
qdatabetter use of money to wait until 4k becomes a commodity, prices will come down to the 'everyman' range and kinks will be ironed out before spending06:03
qdatayeah - stuff 4 of those bad boys in a box and it'll heat the room in winter  :-)06:03
qdataI'm just saying I can't pretend to have that kind of money, I just have to make do with what I can afford but since I'm not a gamer that's relatively easy06:04
Viperisthebest4 would be overkill but of course I would get plenty of cooling before doing it06:05

patarokPlease tell me how do i connect two external displays to my HP Pavillion g series notebook which is running Kubuntu Utopic. I have both external displays connected. One is an old low resolution TFT with a VGA(D-Sub) connector and the other one is a merely new samsung TV with HDMI in.15:46
patarokxrandr shows both of the external displays connected and the values for each.15:47
patarokin Kubuntus(respectively KDE 4's) System Preferences in the section Display configuration i can see all 3 Displays. But when i check the box on the HDMI connected Samsung Flatscreen TV  the HDMI Display in "Display Configuration" gets greyed out.15:50
patarokVGA and internal both seem to work properly.15:50
patarokHDMI connected TV worked flawlessly until one connects the low-res VGA Display15:51
patarokany ideas?15:51
patarokthe only idea i had until now was to reboot.15:52
patarokany display pros in here?15:53
