Kush131Hello all, anyone have any advice on Driver Manager hanging on Collecting info on system?01:06
YankDownUnderKush131: You can test from the terminal instead..."sudo ubuntu-drivers list" => as well, you can see the possible command options with "sudo ubuntu-drivers --help"01:09
Kush131Excellent, thank you!01:12
YankDownUnderKush131: Peace!01:13

Blue1How do I get rid of the device notifier: http://imgur.com/XFbRuaw short of logging out/back in?01:57
YankDownUnderBlue1: Unpin it. click in the upper right hand corner of the "widget", then click somewhere else. It will go away. Easy done.01:58
Blue1okay let me try...01:59
Blue1Hmm....let me try again....no disappearence02:02
YankDownUnderThe little square in the upper right hand corner of the widge dialogue...it has a "pin" symbol...click that, that either pins it to the desktop, or UNpins it from the desktop.02:03
Blue1let me try again...02:04
Blue1when I clicked it, the pin turned blue - but it is still present.02:05
Blue1so different than kde in 14.0402:05
YankDownUnderclick it, then click once on the desktop. The "dialogue" should go away.02:06
Blue1okay let me try clicking the desktop...02:06
Blue1had to do it twice - but it finally disappeared - thank you.02:07
YankDownUnderPeace, you're welcome. Enjoy.02:07

Blue1thank you....now once last question - is there anyway to arange items on the taskbar?02:08
YankDownUnderBlue1: You click+hold them and drag them where you wish them to be. Takes some practice if you're not used to it...02:09
Blue1I am wanting to move the virtual desktop switcher from left side to right side.  panel is unlocked -02:11
YankDownUnderDrag it and move it.02:12
Blue1let me try another icon02:12
YankDownUnderThere is also a "widget" that can be used instead of the "virtual desktops" on the panel...all by choice...02:12
Blue1no nothing moves - let me sanity check that the panel is unlocked02:13
Blue1yup unlocked -- but I can;'t move anything.02:14
YankDownUnderright-click, unlock, move02:14
Blue1Here's what I am doing.   Right click/Panel Options/Panel Settings/More Settings/  and ensure unlocked....yup it is...I than left mouse click, and try to drag - but nothing....02:17
YankDownUnderWorks here...not sure what to tell you...and from experience, I can only say, "If it doesn't work THAT way, try a different way..." :)02:18
Blue1Okay but that is the right procedure yes?02:19
Blue1ahh this made it work:  https://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?57416-How-to-move-icons-on-the-panel-to-the-left-amp-how-to-get-system-tray-back-to-right!!  (left out a step about hitting the thing at the extreme right first)02:23

hazamonzoHow do I go about disabling Baloo? Its stuck eating 100% CPU :(14:11
mparilloHave you tried: https://community.kde.org/Baloo/Configuration#Enable_.2F_Disable14:13
hazamonzomparillo: I have sir14:16
hazamonzoThere is no baloofilerc for me though14:16
hazamonzoonly a baloorc14:16

mparilloArch (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=193169) suggests: $ balooctl disable and a re-boot.14:19

stuarte9Hi, could someone please point me in the direction of a good(!) tutorial on how to set up a wireless connection to the internet using Kubuntu 14.04 & Network Manager ?15:28
lethustuarte9: your wireless networks should show up as soon as you plug your wireless device, it's pretty straightforward15:31
lethustuarte9: given that your device is supported15:32
lethuand properly detected15:32
stuarte9@lethu: Currently I'm having to use an ethernet connection to my land line.15:33
lethustuarte9: what's your wireless adapter?15:33
stuarte9@lethu@ The router is a Technicolor TG582n15:34
lethustuarte9: yes but you need a wireless adapter on your PC in order to connect to it via wifi15:35
yvearhow do I install Minuet?15:35
stuarte9@lethu: The Network Manager icon in the system tray shows only the ethernet connection, even though I've added a wireless connection. I'm just not sure that I have filled in all the fields correctly.15:36
stuarte9@lethu: the router is capable of both wired and wireless operation.15:36
stuarte9@lethu: I've tried doing a web search on this but there is not much available that is clear.15:39
stuarte9@lethu: The user guide that came with it is target at both IOS & MS. No Linux support.15:41
chinmoyhey all,how can i create a .desktop file for a device?15:41
lethustuarte9: what's the model name?15:43
lethustuarte9: is it a dongle or a pci adapter?15:44
stuarte9@lethu: the model  is tg582n. it is an external router.15:45
lethustuarte9: I am not talking about the router15:45
stuarte9@lethu: sorry I misunderstood. what are you speaking of ?15:46
lethustuarte9: the wireless adapter on your pc15:47
stuarte9@lethu: ahh, now I understand. I don't have a wireless adapter on the pc. as I said earlier, this router is capable of wireless operation.15:49
lethustuarte9: it is not sufficient, you need a wireless device connected to the pc in order to communicate with the router wirelessly15:49
lethustuarte9: a wifi usb dongle or a wifi pci card15:50
lethustuarte9: one that is supported by linux15:50
stuarte9@lethu: now i understand. the router is connected to the pc using an ethernet wire. I wanted to use the router to connect to the i-net wirelessly. this router has that capability.15:52
lethustuarte9: yes as I said you can't connect with router alone15:52
stuarte9@lethu: I just don't know how to set up network manager to use the router that way. I'm not sure how to fill in the various fields in n/manager.15:53
lethustuarte9: you need something like this -> https://www.amazon.com/D-Link-Wireless-Network-Adapter-DWA-131/dp/B002PD61Y4?tag=duckduckgo-d-2015:54
stuarte9@lethu: I see. So, if I had one of those, surely i would not need my current router, which is connected to the i/net through the land lins, is that right ?15:57
lethustuarte9: you would still need the router but without the ethernet cable, you would connect with it via wifi15:58
lethustuarte9: also that dongle I linked isn't the best one available, it doesn't come with plug and play support on linux15:58
stuarte9@lethu: I understand that using the dongle would replace the ethernet cable. How do I replace the the wire that connects my router to my land line so that I'm connecting to the i/net wirelessly ?16:01
lethustuarte9: you can't16:02
lethustuarte9: you can't replace the wire that connects your router to the landline16:03
stuarte9@lethu: I wanted to replicate the type of i/net connection that mobile phone have to the i/net.16:04
plusEVstuarte9: You need a 3G/4G router16:04
plusEVsomething likethis16:04
plusEVstuarte9: If you check your phone you might actually have that built into your phone by default if you have a newer phone. Look for an option to chare internet connection on your phone.16:08
plusEVchare = share16:08
stuarte9@plusEV & lethu: I'm using an equivalent of that device.16:09
stuarte9This router is capable of handling wpa & wpa2 amonst other things.16:10
plusEVstuarte9: do you have your phone connected to the WiFi now on your home router?16:11
plusEVstuarte9: if you tell use what sort of computer name and model and router name and model it will be a lot easier to help you.16:14
stuarte9@plusEV: the land line is currently connected to the router.16:15
plusEVstuarte9: I need the brand and model number of both your router and computer to be able to help you further.16:16
stuarte9@plusEv: ok the router is a Technicolor TG582n16:17
stuarte9the pc is a cambridge flite16:20
stuarte9sorry flite = elite16:20
plusEVok buy call your ISP and ask for a free upgrade or tell them you will change ISP if you do not get one for free. if they want a lot of money buy a default D-link with wireless and connect it to your router.16:23
plusEVwhen it comes to your computer. that is not a model number  :P16:23
stuarte9@plusEV: I've checked round the back of the system box, there isn't a model number :(16:26
plusEVk I was  wrong about your router. it has WiFI and you do not need an upgrade.16:27
=== jorgejanota is now known as Elfo
stuarte9@plusEV: fair enough. So what do I need to set in network manager to get it(!) to use the router in wireless mode ?16:29
plusEVstuarte9: Your router has a button on the black panel to enable/disable WiFi.16:30
plusEVstuarte9: If you have a laptop computer that might be the case as well that you have a physical button you have to push on the side or on the front of your computer.16:31
stuarte9@plusEV: there is only one button anywhere on the router and that is the on/off button. The pc is a tower system.16:32
stuarte9@plusEV: I know that some modern PCs have a button to enable networking but this is an old P4 system.16:33
plusEVstuarte9: then you need a WiFi dongle thingy that is compatible with Linux like lethu told you earlier.16:34
plusEVstuarte9: but can you even connect to your WiFi with your phone? You do own a cellphone right?16:34
stuarte9@plusEV: er... no, I don't own a cellphone. just the land line.16:35
plusEVstuarte9: Then test with a cellphone or laptop of a friend first to make sure you can connect to the WiFi. Take note of the name they connect to. the SSID. That is usually ona  sticker under your router. You need to input that into networkmanager after you have installed the dongle that you need to buy.16:36
plusEVmore than that I cannot help you. other than linking you a manual to your router.16:37
plusEVGood Luck16:37
stuarte9@plusEV: thanks for all your help it is much appreciated. I've learned a good bit about this wifi thing in the process.16:38
stuarte9Thanks again.16:38
plusEVstuarte9: You are welcome.16:38
