Zrenstarcraftman, the meta key => kmenu is a kwin hack.02:27
ZrenBecause you can have multiple launchers (eg: different screens)02:27
Zrenit needs a way to detect which one you want02:27
Zrenthe code looks for whichever one has a global shortcut set (like Alt+f1) and actiavtes it.02:28
Zrenif you want a shortcut, but don't want meta key02:28
Zrenfollow this: https://zren.github.io/projects/kde/#cfg-2102:28
starcraftmanZren: thanks for replying, will try this. I am dissapointed that they did not provide some more obvious toggle.02:51
starcraftmanWorks, Iĺl just have to save this somewhere02:52
starcraftmanI use meta for pulling down yakuake, much more useful.02:52
ZrenEh, peeps have been asking for the feature for years. UI stuff is a bit more annoying to do. The meta key code was... complicated enough (I've read it).02:53
ZrenThe reddit thread when it was announched was pretty funny (as someone asked the same thing).02:54
starcraftmanZren: why hardcode it with said hack? Seems poor imo. I don know the details though. Especially since they still show menu allowing you to rebind kmenu to another key.02:57
ZrenQt doesn't support it as it's treated as a modifier key.03:04
ZrenOr maybe it does. Iunno.03:05
ZrenCan you assign keybinding to Shift/Alt/Ctrl/Meta on windows?03:05

espere___Hi. Just upgraded to 16.04. I have a mousepointer when the login window shows but as soon as I log in it dissappears. mouse still active though but no pointer. any suggestions?10:03
hateballespere___: do you have a desktop otherwise?10:15
hateballwith panels etc10:15
hateballthat is, is only the mouse missing, or do you have nothing at all?10:16
espere___hateball: yes10:16
espere___only mouse lacks10:16
espere___the pointer10:16
espere___its active10:16
espere___right mouse button shows the menu so its active10:17
hateballespere___: were you using a custom theme that is no longer compatible?10:17
hateballespere___: what did you upgrade from?10:17
espere___I tried adding a new user but that had the same result10:17
hateballespere___: well I'll suggest the standard thing first, since 16.04 by default is quite... broken10:18
hateballespere___: and that is to use the backports ppa10:18
hateballespere___: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports && sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade10:18
hateballreboot once done, see how things play out10:18

i337Anyone know how to get lxdream working on kubuntu?11:07
i337Been trying but having no success11:07
i337I tried building the mercurial version but had no luck. Tried building from source and same error11:08
i337"configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old." yada yada11:09
i337If anyone can get this working and tell me how to do it I'd appreciate it11:09
i337Here's the link btw: http://www.lxdream.org/download.php11:09
i337I don't care if it's the dev version or the last stable release11:09
hateballespere___: hmmm11:34
hateballespere___: have you used gnome on the same machine?11:36
hateballespere___: and what GPU/driver do you use? try turning off effects temporarily with shift+alt+f1211:38
espere___hateball: I dont recall.11:43
espere___I use noveau atm I think. lemme check11:43
espere___shift-alt-f12 : I dont see anything happening11:43

hateballespere___: so what GPU do you have? "lspci"11:49
hateballespere___: and do you have ideological reasons for using nouveau over nvidia blob? :p11:49
espere___hateball: I see 22 entries: 92000M GS and 9400M G11:59
espere___I thought that since I need to use old drivers by now Nouveau might be more reasonable and break less12:00
hateballI cant say, I dont have anything stuck on 34012:01
hateballespere___: but it's easy enough to try, see if it helps your issues12:02
espere___hateball: seems to work.. grrrrrr. thx a lot for helpin12:15
hateballespere___: works with nvidia blob?12:17
hateballespere___: you could file a bug against... I dunno what really :D12:17
hateballI mean nouveau is in the kernel, but the bug is apparent in plasma12:18
i337what's the shortcut to lock the screen?12:30
i337on windows is windows key + l12:30
hateballI have ctrl+alt+L but I cant recall if I set that myself12:31
i337hateball: that did it12:31
espere___hateball: where/what to file then?12:34
ubottuIf you find a bug in Kubuntu, please follow the instructions at https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Kubuntu/Bugs/Reporting to report the issue to the developers.12:34
espere___display bugs are a mess I suppose. net able to use my displays for 2 years now. big waste :-)12:35
hateballespere___: Suppose I'd file a bug against plasma (any part) and detail that you have missing cursor when using nouveau. Also mention you're using kubuntu ppa so plasma 5.8.412:35
hateballespere___: what do you mean not able to use your displays?12:35
espere___I used to have more displays connected. but there seems to be a bug that thats not working anymore12:36
hateballespere___: multimonitor is fickle currently, but it should work. use nvidia-settings to configure them if you are using the nvidia blob12:37
hateballless broken multimonitor support is one reason to use the PPA as well, since many bugs have been fixed in 5.8.x12:38
espere___hateball: u sure it is fixed? I was using 4 monitors with cinerama and twinview iirc12:39

hateballesperegu: sorry as I said I only use 2 monitors, and that's on Intel. My nvidia machine has a more recent gpu/driver also, and only one monitor14:28
hateballesperegu: so many parameters it's hard to know what goes wrong14:28
hateballesperegu: oh you may also like to wipe your kscreen configs and reboot, to get those freshly generated14:29
espereguhateball: how is that done?15:22
espereguhateball: I also just noticed (since it gets darker here) that after this upgrade on my laptop my keyboard lights do not work anymore :-)15:23
espereguhateball: ha. that seemed to be a key combo ;-)15:24
hateballesperegu: do what? wipe kscreen?15:25
hateballesperegu: each monitor has a file config in ~/.local/share/kscreen15:25
hateballesperegu: so you just need to move/delete them and restart the session and things should autodetect again. after that if things arent magically just working, use nvidia-settings to config the monitors15:26
espereguhateball: I have a xorg.conf that I use for the setup15:27
espereguhateball: don't think I was able to get it working with the nvidia-settings15:27

hateballthen I dont really know, as I said I dont use multimonitor with nvidia15:28
hateballintel "just works"15:28

ayolibrohi. i'm am installing kubuntu 16.10 right now (dualboot with windows 10). the installer asks me where i want to install the bootloader, but i don't really know what to choose. these are my partitions: https://paste.kde.org/pivktlf9e16:46
ayolibroit gives me the options /dev/sda, /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, /dev/sda4, /dev/sda5 and /dev/sda6.16:48
ayolibrooh and i am installing on uefi (if this is important)16:50
yotuxWith uefi I am not sure16:55
yotuxNormally I have used used /dev/sda  as that is the boot sector of the first disk16:56
yotuxayolibro: where are you installing kubuntu16:56
BluesKajayolibro, i thought grub was supposed to be installed to the efi partition..but I'm not toyally sure ..ask in #ubuntu, there uEFI experts there16:57
ahoneybunayolibro: if you have a efi partion from Windows I believe that you need to install the bootloader there16:57
ayolibroWhen I installed Win 10 I left free space for Kubuntu. Now I have created two partitions for Kubuntu (home and /) on this free space.16:57
ahoneybunolder BIOS would be /dev/sda16:57
BluesKajhe has a UEFI system16:58
ahoneybunyea GRUB would handle the uefi booting of Win 10 and Kubuntu16:58
yotuxIt does in my case I just don't recall were I installed the boot loader16:59
ahoneybunI'm not dual booting atm but17:00
ahoneybun /boot/efi17:00
ahoneybun /17:00
ahoneybun /home17:00
ahoneybunand swap is how I have my uefi laptop setup17:00
yotuxahoneybun, I'm not sure why I still have dual boot I have VM images for most of my windows needs.....17:02
yotuxSilly Garmin devices.....17:02
ayolibroSo I should install the bootloader to /dev/sda2? (It is the efi partition)17:03
yotuxayolibro,  I think some one said early there may be a uefi expert in #ubuntu17:05
ayolibroI already asked in ubuntu, but no one answered. Should I ask again?17:05
yotuxI asked also am awaiting a response17:06
ahoneybunayolibro: if /dev/sda2 is the efi then yes17:06
ahoneybunjust have everything backup in case17:06
yotuxayolibro: It seems  a user is agreeing with what you stated, as always have a backup.....17:07
ayolibroI have a backup of everything. ^^17:08
ayolibroThank you all for helping me!17:08
yotuxWe try when we can good luck and enjoy :)17:09
ayolibroyotux, everything works perfectly, I can start both Win 10 and Kubuntu. Thanks again!17:32
