IrcsomeBot1<RikMills> the ibus default settings changed in 20.10 which probably makes that start if it is installed. apt-get purge ibus should get rid of it after upgrade if you don't want it. we only need ibus-data package installed for the plasma emoji-picker to work, but in 20.04 that pulled all of ibus. in 20.10 the dependency has been fixed, so you won't see any of this on a new install.00:51
IrcsomeBot1<RikMills> that should probably be added to the release/upgrade notes00:52
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> Hi folks, I'm on Kubuntu 18.04 with 4 GB of ram and i3 2.2 GHz CPU. It becomes very sluggish if, e.g. if I have more than 10 browser tabs and running a node based dev environment. Should I be upgrading to 20.04 or 20.10?03:26
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> @abhishekbatra, Wait till they push an update04:01
guiverc@abhishekbatra, I'd try and upgrade your ram if you can04:09
Maikand try to reduce the swappiness, the more swap is being used the more sluggish the system can become04:12
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> All good advice, I did try 20.04 earlier this year and it was almost unusable for me.04:14
Maikby now most bugs should be squashed in 20.04.1, i don't run Kubuntu though but main Ubuntu runs just fine04:16
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Maik, Do you have a similar hardware configuration as mine?04:16
Maik@abhishekbatra i have a older Lenovo Thinkpad T410 with a i5 processor and 4GB of RAM on which i run main Ubuntu04:18
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> Seems worth trying out again04:27
Maik@abhishekbatra it's always better to wait for the first point release when using LTS04:28
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> Yeah. Force upgrade is buggy for me04:29
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Maik, Thanks for sharing that!04:29
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @YesEyeCan, What would you recommend?04:29
Maik@abhishekbatra you're most welcome04:29
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> @abhishekbatra, Stay with 19 LTS04:30
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @YesEyeCan, You mean 18.04? 19 won't be LTS04:31
Maik@YesEyeCan 19 is no LTS04:32
Maikand both are EOL anyway04:32
Maik20.04 is the latest LTS, 22.04 will be the next04:33
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> Oh well04:40
MaikLTS releases come every two years :)04:41
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> Yeah 18 then04:41
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> I'm confused04:42
Maiknothing to be confused about :D04:43
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> I feel like I might change to other distro04:43
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> 20 is bugging me out04:43
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> Random display turning off, random screen glitching out04:43
Maiktroubleshoot it and file bug reports so it can get fixed, changing distro's isn't really helpful04:44
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> How do I troubleshoot? I'm not sure how to get logs either04:45
Maikthe web is yours and i bet your search engine isn't broken all of the sudden now, is it? ;)04:46
Maikbesides that, every distro has it's pro's and cons04:46

IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> All flavours of Ubuntu run fine on my lenovo miix 320 tablet with 2gb/32gb configuration.07:09
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> I used it for sales productivity. Run email, hubspot and slack on it.07:10
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> I am using kubuntu lts 20.04 now.07:10
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @sammy_v, Nice07:23
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> How many browser tabs do you generally have open?07:24
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> I intelligently use 2 browsers. Chrome for work and Mozilla for personal use. I keep 4-5 tabs open in each. I can use both simultaneously. The system does not hang in this case.07:29
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Hubspot plugin works only on chrome.07:29
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Hence I cannot use opera.07:30
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> If you prefer only 1 browser. Try opera. It's light and fast compared to chrome and mozilla07:30
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @sammy_v, I'll take a leaf out of popular culture and say "smort"07:31
IrcsomeBot1<sammy_v> Hahaha07:31
IrcsomeBot1Empire201_Off was added by: Empire201_Off08:05
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> Hi08:05
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> Battery status in system tray is false detection?08:06
IrcsomeBot1licencode was added by: licencode09:10
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Empire201_Off, Please elaborate on the issue you are facing09:19
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> (Photo, 960x1280) https://irc-attachments.kde.org/1kEiBhaQ/file_37959.jpg Second under the battery Battery status which is in Hungarian Akkumul√°tor √°llapota....09:45
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> @abhishekbatra09:47
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> That is likely the battery capacity09:47
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Empire201_Off, For example if the max rating was 100 Wh, it will only provide a maximum of 84 Wh currently09:49
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> And if it goes down to zero then what will happen? Does this indicate exactly?09:50
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Empire201_Off, As time passes the amount of power a battery can deliver keeps reducing, so at some point if it hypothetically goes down to zero, it won't provide any power backup, and you'll have to run your computer on AC power.09:52
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> @abhishekbatra, If I understand correctly if it is zero then it has little? Or can it only be used with a charger?09:53
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Empire201_Off, Then it will only work with a charger09:53
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> But does Kubuntu accurately indicate this and not write false data?09:54
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> I haven't faced any false data reporting09:55
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> It's actually not even ubuntu, probably some power related module in linux09:55
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> They get that data from the battery directly if I remember correctly09:56
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> When I first received my laptop from a retailer, the battery's capacity was at 87%09:58
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> I think it's quite common09:58
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> Interesting topic .... Then it's built into the kernel! Brilliant.09:58
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Empire201_Off, You should get in touch with a hardware expert to get better details09:58
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> @abhishekbatra, Windows I think has taken a lot of capacity09:59
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> @abhishekbatra, All right! Thanks!09:59
IrcsomeBot1<Empire201_Off> 22th At what time will the new version come out?10:38
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Maik, I forgot to mention I have zram configured. What would be the recommended swappiness in that case?10:43
Maikzram is only useful on machines with 2 GB or less RAM afaik10:45
Maikswappiness should be reduced to 10 or 5 on machines with 4GB RAM10:45
Maikstandard swappiness after a buntu install is set to 6010:46
Maikby default10:46
WenzA bit ambitious, but any method to get the icon only 5.20 task bar in 20.04 ?10:46
IrcsomeBot1<abhishekbatra> @Maik, Testing it out with 10 now10:48
Maikrightclick on the taskbar and look at the alternatives Wenz10:49
Maikit's been a option since i don't know when10:49

ubottu@swift110: Shortened English is difficult for some non-native English speakers to read. Please use full words instead. Thanks!14:16
swift110sorry about that14:17
BluesKajget used to using real words on irc14:17
Maiklol... after all these years on IRC you don't tell me you didn't know about that14:18
Maik:D14:18
BluesKajthat's not the point Maik, and you know it:-)14:19

nesciushello, do you know how to setup kde apps to look like gnome-shell applications?19:11
nesciusi am using adwaita-dark and cannot seem to get the same in KDE apps19:12
oerheksnescius, use the adwaita-dark-kde theme ? https://store.kde.org/p/1335337/19:18
oerheksplasma themes are different19:18
oerheksor adwaita-qt19:18
nesciusoerheks: thanks! adwaita-dark-kde does not show same colours as gtk apps (its less reddish) but i will try the adwaita-qt thing19:24
nesciusand its wierd because I was unable to find that particular background colour anywhere in the detailed config19:25
IrcsomeBot1<murdock86> Guys, where do you add the basic icons on your desktop? (Home, Computer, Trash)19:25
valorieugh, for the "guys"19:35
valorieplease19:35
valoriewe're not all guys19:35
* woozalia is also non-guy (to the extent that it matters)19:38
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> Can you not bring in senseless gender arguments and focus on the question instead19:38
diogenes_'guys' is interchengeable for both genders.19:42
valoriediogenes_: we try to be inclusive here20:20
valorie"guys" does not include ME20:20
valorieI very often help with specific questions here20:21
valorieand don't very often protest language'20:21
valorieit is NOT inclusive language20:22
=== adrian is now known as Guest63436
IrcsomeBot1<YesEyeCan> Don't do that here. This is Kubuntu support, not gender protest support22:26
tomreyninclusive speech still seems desirable in a community like this, i would think.22:29
IrcsomeBot1<bauchhaus> I'd think so to.22:54
IrcsomeBot1<bauchhaus> too22:54
