IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> But idk how to configure it06:49
valorieI have no clue06:50
valorieit's not kde software and I've never used it06:50
valorieyou might find people in #ubuntu who know06:50
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> https://www.linux.com/topic/desktop/how-install-and-configure-conky/06:50
valorieok, if you could find the answer yourself, why ask here?06:52
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> I found later06:52
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> I read it and found a second step06:53
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> That's easy a06:53

IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> @SharGen19, Try updating the repository on your pc. Then try installing conky again. If there is no package on repository server then you cannot install. Give a try.09:51
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> Well I did downloaded and set it up09:52
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Else you can download the conky source files and compile them on your pc.09:52
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> But it's too buggy09:52
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> When I use to click on widget it gets disappeare09:52
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Hmm try download source files and compile them on your pc.09:53
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> I have no idea how to do that 😅09:54

tomreynyes, you're trying to run a command that's not available. often, that's because the package providing this command is not installed.15:35
BluesKaj@SharGen19, whynot just open your sources.list in dolphin?15:40

IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> idk im new to linux, i was looking for a distro and i settled on kubuntu, now im adding things to make it my daily driver16:14
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> and completely replace from windows16:15
IrcsomeBot1<Abhishek23180> @SharGen19, Best would be to read about ventoy for you to try out new distros. Although i dunno your printer generation but even mine is pretty old yet it works smoothly with many distros and not with some16:16

oerheksoh, but you already have found it, .... scroll down in that list, how hard could this be?16:37
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> uhm but i dont know what im looking for?16:38
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> my device name?16:38
Maik@SharGen19 it's not all handholding, try to take some more efford yourself, search a bit and try. Otherwise you'll never learn.16:40
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> @SharGen19, Foomatic is Linux driver name. You select the canon series written ahead of foomatic.16:40
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> yeah but im trying from very long and now its sucking16:40
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Foomatic is printer database for linux16:40
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> mhm one sec lemme try16:40
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> @SharGen19, Because you are following complicated instructions from Google. Select simple tutorials on Google.16:41
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> uhm16:41
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> No need to use vim and create /etc/ *** folder.16:42
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Find g2010 in foomatic database16:44
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> And you are done.16:44
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> If nothing works try generic driver. It will work but you may find some margin and page size errors. You need to manually correct. Printing speed may reduce.16:45
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> @sammy_v, https://openprinting.github.io/16:51
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> this web?16:51
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> @SharGen19, In the list shown on your pc.16:52
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> @sammy_v, where ur asking me search "g2010"16:53
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> In printer menu of settings.16:53

IrcsomeBot1<Matt Chambers> ohh thanks17:05
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> @sammy_v do u have ur system with u? can u use team viewer and install the driver?17:09
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Open printer setting in your pc. Select canon printer and then open pick a driver setting, s search for g2010foomatic driver17:13
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Very simple17:13
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> No need of teamviewer17:13
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> @sammy_v, there is no g2010foomatic17:13
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> thats the issue17:13
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Try generic driver. It will work17:14
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Take trial print and do manual adjustment for page settings.17:15
IrcsomeBot1<SharGen19> @sammy_v, nope not working17:17
IrcsomeBot1<Abhishek23180> @SharGen19, Try another distro like Linux Mint and return here coz Kubuntu is great!!17:19
IrcsomeBot1<Abhishek23180> As i said read about ventoy for trying out different distros17:19
