IrcsomeBot<purpleavenger> ok, having a brain fart here - upgraded from 18.04 LTS->18.10->19.04, now meta/super key doesn't open the application launcher - I know I fixed this before, but can't find or remember how to fix it (Settings->workspace->shortcuts->global shortcuts->plasma->activate app launcher widget won't take just meta/super)01:42
daxgive it alt-f1 instead, for some reason it'll also recognize super if you do that01:43
IrcsomeBot<purpleavenger> it already has Alt-F1 there for global - and Alt-F1 works01:43
IrcsomeBot<purpleavenger> will change and change back01:44
daxi configured it in a different place: right-click widget -> Configure Application Launcher -> Keyboard shortcuts. dunno if that makes any difference01:44
daxbut Super definitely didn't work before I did Alt-F1, and definitely did after01:44
IrcsomeBot<purpleavenger> either that or logout+login did it - thanks!02:03
daxyou're welcome :)02:05

diogenes_so what command have you entered?20:16
larsihsudo rm -r /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d20:16
diogenes_:) when? after reboot?20:16
larsihI rebooted, entered ctrl alt f2, logged in, typed the command, and did the systemctrl reboot20:17
diogenes_larsih, you was meant to do that operation ONLY in case it didn't boot correctly :)20:18
diogenes_ok now let's do things from the beginning20:18
larsihdiogenes_: oh20:19
diogenes_run:  cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf | nc termbin.com 999920:19
larsihI guess I need to make the directory again20:20
diogenes_sudo mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d20:21
diogenes_cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf | nc termbin.com 999920:21
larsihdiogenes_: https://termbin.com/sl1520:24
diogenes_larsih, ok reboot now and after reboot don't enter any command but test your video playback and come back here with a feedback.20:25
larsihdiogenes_: ok, rebooting20:25
larsihdiogenes_: rebooted and tested the video play and it is the same20:29
diogenes_larsih, ok let's try a few more tricks20:30
larsihdiogenes_: ok20:30
diogenes_run: sudo apt update20:30
diogenes_after that run: sudo apt install libdvdnav4 libdvdread4 gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly libdvd-pkg20:30
diogenes_after that: sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras20:30
diogenes_when it's all installed, try the video again20:31
larsihdiogenes_: rebooting since video replay doesn't work at all.   Brb20:37
larsihdiogenes_: it didn't work.  In addition I can now only open a video one time.  Then I need to reboot to be able to open a video again20:42
diogenes_larsih, what player do you use?20:43
larsihdiogenes_: vlc.  I have tried other players (in 18.04) with the same problems though20:43
diogenes_larsih, have you tried mpv?20:44
larsihdiogenes_: I will try that one out20:44
diogenes_sudo apt install mpv mplayer20:45
diogenes_try them both20:45
larsihdiogenes_: mpv seems to work.  It is "laggy" but that's  100% better than the video freezing up20:48
diogenes_mpv is good.20:49
larsihmplayer won't start.  But oh well, got mpv to run20:50
larsihdiogenes_: think we can call this a win, thank you sir :)20:50
diogenes_you're welcome.20:51

y9pqbHello, has anyone had their KOrganizer events disappear? It happened today with someone I know and I'm trying to help them, but I don't have any idea of where to look. I didn't find any kde related dotfiles in their home folder (the computer is running Ubuntu 18.04, not Kubuntu).21:50

comboI'm trying to understand the follow command.  I understand this is a recursive copy.  But I don't understand exactly how parent directory is in-play.  And the .gnome, is this a file?  And finally the dot at the end.22:59
combocp -R ../oldguy/.gnome/ .23:00
comboNevermind, got it.23:02
