dredneckok, i didnt know if it was something dropped or something not installed09:34
irctc357Hi there! My system language was English US but it seems like Kubuntu decided that some programs like Kate and some others should be in German... I checked /etc/default/locale and the language settings are correct. My keyboard layout is Swiss but that's correct and it also was never a problem before. Does anyone know how I can fix this so that everything is English again?09:39
Smurphyirctc357: all gnome-based programs I am running are displayed in french, even though I have all configured for US English.09:42
SmurphyI do however live in France, and I have German and French dictionaries enabled.09:42
=== eugen is now known as Guest47410
irctc357Smurphy: Thanks for your reply! Are the dictionaries you spoke about the same as the translations under "System Settings - Regional Settings - Translations"? Or are they something else?09:53
Smurphyirctc357: Yes. Same.10:12

amovahhi, How can i change my input keyboard source?10:40
amovahanyone can help me?10:43
hateballamovah: I am not sure I understand what you mean10:47
hateballamovah: Do you want to change the input language?10:47
amovahhateball: yes i want10:48
amovahhateball: in unity I can change the input source easily10:49
amovahbut now I'm confiuse10:50
amovahconfuse*10:50
hateballamovah: are you on 14.04 or 15.10 ?10:50
amovah15.1010:50
amovahin KDE desktop10:50
amovahI have no problem in unity and gnome desktop10:51
hateballI dont remember offhand in 15.10, but if you open krunner (alt+space) and search for "keyboard" you should have an option for language settings10:51
hateballby default it will be set to your system language, but you should be able to add more layouts and switch between them10:52
hateballotherwise you can just switch in a terminal using "setxkbmap us" or whatever layout you want10:52
amovahlet me try10:53
amovahhateball : thanks10:53

capsi've installed the proprietary nvidia drivers and i'm just getting a black screen on boot. however when i go to recovery mode, drop to root shell, login as my user and do startx from there it works12:03
capswhen i do a normal boot i think i see the tty login thing for half a second but then everything goes black12:03
hateballcaps: What version of Kubuntu are you using, and what GPU?12:05
hateballcaps: And how did you install the drivers?12:05
caps15.10 and gtx 97012:06
capsi installed from recovery mode12:06
clivejocaps: have you tried the "nomodeset" kernel boot option?12:06
=== it_tard is now known as nfk|laptop
capsi don't know what that is lol12:07
capshow can i try?12:07
clivejoyou know how to access grub?12:07
capsyeah12:07
clivejoin there edit the kernel line option, the one that has "quiet splash" just add nomodeset to that to become "nomodeset quiet splash"12:09
clivejoif it works, you can add it permanantly *fingers crossed*12:10
capsi added nomodeset at the end of that line now12:10
clivejotry booting with that12:11
capslooks the same. the kubuntu logo thing shows and then everything goes black12:11
clivejokubuntu logo shouldnt show12:11
BluesKajHiyas all12:11
clivejohi BluesKaj12:12
BluesKajhi clivejo12:12
capsit shouldn't?12:12
hateballcaps: So what driver did you install?12:13
hateballcaps: Did you install from nVidia, or did you install from Ubuntu repository?12:14
capsat first i installed the beta driver. same issue but i just "whatever" and went to recovery to startx from there12:14
capsit had some bugs though so i switched to the previous one12:14
capsfrom nvidia12:14
capsi'm developing some opengl application and i think i'm running into some bugs with the api so i wanted to test the latest drivers12:14
TJ-caps: Hang on, is the screen backlight turning off, or does te backlight remain on but the screen is blank (black/purple colour)12:15
hateballcaps: Remove that. Add this PPA https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa and install nvidia-graphics-drivers-355 from it12:15
capsscreen turns off12:15
TJ-caps: at what stage during startup does it turn off?12:15
capsi'm not sure, after the logo shows12:16
capshow can i tell?12:16
capslogs from previous boot?12:16
TJ-caps: boot without "quiet splash" so you can see the kernel/init system messages12:16
TJ-caps: but... was it working previously with the nouveau driver?12:16
capseverything happens too fast lol12:17
TJ-caps: I'm wondering if it is simply the case that the monitor you have connected is NOT on the GPU's *primary* output12:17
capsi have two monitors connected12:17
TJ-caps: for multi-head GPU cards, 1 output is designated primary. the open-source driver will clone output to all of them but the nvidia driver turns off all but the primary12:17
capsyeah i only see output on one of my monitors12:18
capsthe other one is a 4k tv connected through display port12:18
capsthe main one is just a normal pc monitor connected with dvi12:18
capsanyway everything works if i go to recovery mode, enable read write, drop to root shell, login as user and do startx12:20
TJ-caps: I'd also recommend trying to boot to a text console. on the kernel command-line add "systemd.unit=multi-user.target"12:21
TJ-caps: then from there try "sudo systemctl start graphical.target"12:21
TJ-caps: that'll tell at what stage the problem occurs.12:21
capsis that a startup parameter? i'm not sure where to add it (brb google)12:23
TJ-caps: I'm wondering if the Xorg xserver driver is configuring to drive the 'missing' outputs when it starts, which would explain the monitor going off12:23
TJ-caps: Yes, "kernel command-line" - so add it by modifying the GRUB boot entry12:23
capsah, i can just do that temporarily with the e and ctrl x thing?12:24
TJ-caps: reboot. Hold 'Shift' until the GRUB boot manager menu shows. Highlight the default (first) entry. Press 'E' to edit. Navigate to the line starting "linux ..." and add to it "systemd.unit=multi-user.target". Immediately press Ctrl+X or F10 to boot with that change12:24
capsi added it at the end (i'm assuming each parameter is separated by space?) and i just see the kubuntu logo endlessly12:27
TJ-caps: space - correct. try pressing Esc to toggle the splash screen off12:29
capsesc doesn't seem to do anything12:31
capsctrl alt del triggers a reboot at least12:31
SmurphyHow about switching down to the console ???12:32
capshmm yeah that works12:34
capsand from there i can startx12:34
SmurphyYes - or you can restart the session, or even have a look at the logs for what is going on ...12:34
capscan i do this from KSystemLog?12:35
capsi'm not really that good with linux12:35
SmurphyWhat is KSystemLog ?12:35
SmurphyAh -= application to look at logfils ?12:35
capsyeah12:36
SmurphyWell - check the /var/log directory for most logs. that's what KSystemLog does.12:36
SmurphyOnce the X session went berserk, go down to the console, the to that directory, and with a: ls -lrt you will see the logfiles, ordered by most recent changes last (means the last file is the one that received content most recently0.12:37
SmurphyBut yes, you should be able to use KSystemLog12:37
SmurphyAmazing, I didn't even know ksystemlog existed... Testing it out now ;D12:37
SmurphyLol. I knew there is a hickup. Configure to show max lines number12:38
Smurphy*lol* I can't reboot my system for checking logs... My /var/log, /tmp, /var/tmp are all located on ram-drives for speed reasons :} abd because ssd :D12:40
TJ-caps: sounds like a splash issue if booting with 'multi-user.target' isn't presenting the console. That's done by 'plymouth' which is triggered by the "splash" keyword on the kernel command-line. Might be worth trying again with "systemd.unit=multi-user.target" without "splash"12:48
SmurphyAh - yes. I by default disable plymouth on all my systems.12:49
TJ-caps: ensure that "nomodeset" is NOT there too, so as not to inhibit the expected correct behaviour12:50
nikolaj_basherHi, is there away to turn KDE off so it won't start automatially when the computer boots. It's because I will use it for server and I don't want to use Ram on it when I don't need it13:05

=== huddy is now known as ultraspark
ultrasparkHello13:05
ultrasparknikolaj_basher - change the default run level13:06
ultrasparkthis way it won't start x when you start it13:07
nikolaj_basherwhich runlevel is it?13:07
nikolaj_basherthe reason why I don't use debian instead is because i would like it to run vpn (KDE remote desktop) in the feauture13:08
svend-evGood morning13:14
TJ-nikolaj_basher: which release version is it? 15.10 ?13:15
rom1504nobody had issues with vlc in 15.10 ?13:16
TJ-That's good then :)13:16
rom1504(using an nvidia card and drivers)13:16
nikolaj_basherTJ-,15.1013:30
nikolaj_basher15.1013:31
=== user is now known as Guest28359
TJ-nikolaj_basher: OK, then it is systemd. You can disable the graphical boot with "systemctl disable graphical.target"13:38
nikolaj_basherTJ-, and that won't effect if I use it for VPN remote desktop?13:39
TJ-nikolaj_basher: that simply stops the sddm/lightdm/whatever display manager service from being automatically started at boot. You can still start it manually13:40
