GodolphinhillJust clean installed Kubuntu 15.10 and need to restore my backed up files which are on a usb stick  called Kingston by my computer. How do I do this please?12:00
hateballGodolphinhill: No one in here knows how or what you backuped12:01
hateballGodolphinhill: So we'll need a bit more detail12:01
GodolphinhillI backed up my documents. They're in .gz files on the usb stick12:07
hateballGodolphinhill: So unpack them where you see fit12:12
BluesKajHiyas all12:53
emevery time my computer is left unused for too long it bugs out - logs me out or does other things and then when I log back in I see that random things have been opened and changed. Like this time there were a ton of apps I never opened and websites from my browser history were added to the bookmarks.12:59
emactually looks like its not from history. It is stuff I had bookmarked, it just wasn't on the toolbar before.13:00
BluesKajem, what length of time are you talking about here?13:05
emBluesKaj: Like over night.13:07
BluesKajperhaps you have updates and upgrades set to auto install unattended updates in the update manager13:10
emit happened again13:40
emthis isnt like normal stuff showing up13:40
emits completely random stuff13:40
emlike all the tabs in google tht were open slpit into diffferent window13:40
emakregator oepnded13:41
emrestore session opened13:41
emall random things i never touched13:41
emevery time i return to the computer it is like some monkey has been opening random crap13:41
emoften so much that i just have to turn it off and start over13:41
emI think maybe Kubuntu 15.10 is just not ready to be released.13:42
Smurphyem: it is. You sure you didn't get yourself a trojan horse, or one of your fellas is playing on you ?13:50
emim not sure, maybe unetbootin made it buggy?13:52
Smurphycan't say. Booting normally13:53
BluesKajem, are you sure there isn't some one accessing the computer while you're away or asleep or..... is this possible?13:57
BluesKajunetbootin only worked for me about 50% of my install tries, but I never experienced ant strange behavior on the successful installs13:59
BluesKajso I switched to using dd to copy the iso to usb14:00
OerHeksmake sure you sync after that.14:04

BluesKajkaramba, swapping in a HDD from a different pc that has differnt hardware than the target pc is always going cause problems due to drivers and graphics, audio and file configurations etc.16:25
BluesKajnever a good idea16:26
karambaBluesKaj: So I have to reinstall the system? :( ?16:26
BluesKajyes, that's the best approach16:26
OerHekskaramba, same graphic card? if not, login ctrl alt F1:  sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall  # and reboot after that, might work for you16:28
karambaNot same card, completely new PC. Built it today. Thx I will try16:29
BluesKajOerHeks, cool , never saw that command or attempt to rescue, before16:30
OerHekssudo ubuntu-drivers list# will show available drivers16:31
BluesKajif he can get to the VT16:31
OerHeksautoinstall installs the whole bunch, if available, vga, wifi, microcode16:31
karambaI ran the command but the output was: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded16:31
OerHeksyeah, i hope he can16:31
OerHekssudo apt-get update &&  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade # might fix that16:32
karambaThis is only installing a new kernel now16:34
BluesKajsudo ubuntu-drivers list# errors out here16:34
BluesKajbut sudo ubuntu-drivers list works16:35
OerHeksthat # was meant for the comment, sorry16:35
BluesKajyeah  i wondered about the #16:36
karambaI can not read a few chars on termnial 1 becaue it is off screen. but this command produces something like -microdoce16:40
BluesKajkaramba, microcode is an optional app for your cpu16:42
BluesKaj!info microcode16:43
ubottuPackage microcode does not exist in wily16:43
karambaBluesKaj: What do you mean?16:44
karambaOr what do I do?16:44
BluesKajkaramba, it's an optional package for your cpu to acquire patches16:45
karambaBluesKaj: So should I install it?16:46
BluesKajjust leave it for now, unless it's ready to install'16:46
karambaWhat do you mean by "unless it is ready to install"? So I can not do anything then I guess.16:47
BluesKajinstall if youwish, don't think it will damage anything16:47
BluesKajI have it installed on my pc without any ill effects16:48
karambasudo apt-get install microcode --> package microcode not found16:48
BluesKajdepends on your cpu, AMD64-microcode, or intel-microcode16:50
BluesKajthen install intel-microcode16:51
karamba-micocode is already the latest version16:51
karambaI just find it amazing that there is no command to the Ubuntu to reconfigure graphics, i.e. do what you normally do when installing a new system.16:52
BluesKajhave you updated and upgraded with apt? if so run sudo apt dist-upgrade as well16:52
karambaYeah, I did that.16:53
OerHekskaramba, so what gpu is in your new pc? intel only?16:53
BluesKajkaramba, depends on the gpu , the installer looks at the hardware and installs the default driver16:53
OerHeksintel is supported with the kernel fine.16:54
BluesKajyeah try st\artx16:54
BluesKajstartx rather16:54
karambaOerHeks: this is it: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-A/specifications/16:56

bartosz_i've installed qmmp for mp3 but now when I download smth on firefox, and I want to open the folder where is downloaded program in FF, the folder does'nt open. Opens QMMP :/17:06
bartosz_program = file17:06
BluesKajbartosz_, default DL file on kubuntu is /home/user/Downloads  in FF17:07
bartosz_i know but I hitting the download arrow in FF17:08
bartosz_and near downloaded file is the icon of small folder17:08
bartosz_when I hit it Qmmp opens17:08
BluesKajjust try opening the downloads file17:08
bartosz_thats not a satisfying sollution17:08
bartosz_i want to open the "overriding" folder17:09
BluesKajreally? ..seems simple enough to me17:09
BluesKajthere is no overriding folder17:09
bartosz_im translating17:09
bartosz_you have and arrow in FF with downloaded files17:10
bartosz_hit the arrow17:10
bartosz_near downloaded file, on the right side is the gray folder17:10
bartosz_when i hit that qmmp opens not dolphin17:10
BluesKajthis is trivial , just open the the home/user/Downloads file and you'll see your mp3 there17:11
bartosz_the file is not a mp317:12
bartosz_its a rar17:12
bartosz_but Dolphin should open!17:12
bartosz_this icon doesn't open the file but the directory where the file is!17:12
BluesKajperhaps because it's a rar file17:13
bartosz_ok ill give you a screenshot, you don't get it17:14
BluesKajanyway i don't open files in my current dir whith a browser17:14
bartosz_ok but i do and i would like to fix it17:14
BluesKajbartosz_, maybe tar files expect to be extracted not opened with a browser, has that ocurred to you?17:17
bartosz_check this image17:19
* BluesKaj shrugs like i said above it's a tar file17:20
bartosz_can you see the other files17:21
bartosz_is pdf a tar file?17:21
BluesKajexpects to be opened in the conr=texr menu with ark or extracted , not in a browser17:21
BluesKajcontext menu17:22
bartosz_is a pdf a tar file?17:22
BluesKajit can be iuf it's compressed17:22
bartosz_but before installing qmmp it worked well and always dolphin was opened17:22
bartosz_so no, it's not beacuse tar files17:23
BluesKajopen it in dolphin , not FF and it will open with okular if it isn't tarred17:23
bartosz_BluesKaj: I want to (beacause i have gotten used to it for years) to open a dolphin by hitting the folder icon17:24

acher88the latest in the main archive for trust is firefox 43.0.4+build3-0ubuntu0.14.04.120:40
acher88unless there is some other ppa weirdness, you should get to that on next 'apt-get upgrade'20:41
OerHeksindeed acher88, i think he used that ppa since FF 34, so it knows this version only to roll back20:42

bob2021Hi.  Plasma is not seeing google-chrome or letting me launch it from the launch thingy.  it was installed with apt and i've tried reinstalling.  can someone help?23:53
keithzgbob2021: Interesting. If you just type in "google-chrome" to KRunner (I think the default is still alt+f2) does it nonetheless run?23:54
keithzgAlternatively, try that from a terminal session like Konsole.23:54
bob2021keithzg - from a terminal session yes, that's how i'm in now.  from krunner, no23:58
