keithzg[m]Damn, switching from Latte Dock to the standard Plasma dock didn't resolve my Plasma lockups (often taking down the entire X11 session, perhaps somehow triggered by notification popups judging by how every time it's happened there being a glitched notification popup in the corner, and how if I don't have a working notification tray in my Plasma X11 session it never crashes even with compositing turned on).01:29
keithzg[m]Time to see if enabling the backports PPA on this 21.10 Kinetic install fixes things. Even if not, at least I'll get some shiny new stuff to balance out the papercuts I'm getting here on the bleeding edge anyways ;)01:30

BluesKajHi all13:18
IrcsomeBot<Ginomfs> Is there a simple way for my laptop to connect another TV monitor, Kubuntu 22.04, does not recognize HDMI cable plugged in13:26
BluesKaj@Ginomfs, check your source/hdmi connection on the tv, it should work13:33
sem'ello. What is the kubuntu paradigm for opening the terminal? I am used to hitting a keyboard shortcut in lubuntu or ubuntu; does kubuntu prefer a different way?16:38
IrcsomeBot<Ginomfs> Went through all of them, used to use Ubuntu with another laptop no problem, (re @IrcsomeBot: <BluesKaj> @Ginomfs, check your source/hdmi connection on the tv, it should work)16:41
IrcsomeBot<Ginomfs> Konsole (re @IrcsomeBot: <sem> 'ello. What is the kubuntu paradigm for opening the terminal? I am used to hitting a keyboard shortcut in lubuntu or ubuntu; does kubuntu prefer a different way?)16:41
user|65Hi, looking for some guidance after faiiling upgrade from 20.04 to 22.04 !17:25
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> Ensure to disable any PPA's and run sudo apt update proir to upgrade.17:29
user|65Upgrade scrip did not completed...stopped at 99% with a message "launching dpkg --configure -a" and froze from there.17:29
user|65I did ran sudo apt update prior.17:29
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> Is the process still "hung"?17:30
user|65I was able to reboot but now I am not sure if the update was completed...22.04 looks like its working.17:31
user|65Could not 'kill' the hung process...forced reboot.17:32
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> you could try manually running  "dpkg --configure -a" just to ensure nothing was left incomplete. But if everything seems to be working OK, the your system is probably OK.17:32
user|65Yes ran "dpkg --configure -a" after reboot...is there a log of the update that can be analysed ?17:34
user|65Or posted somewhere to the team that maintain the update script ?17:35
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> Ensure to fix/enable any ppa's from the previous version by launching "sudo software-properties-qt", selecting the Other Software tab, checking respective boxes, and and changing the distribution to "kinetetic".17:35
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> err. "kinetic"17:35
user|65Ok...great...I will do this and try again to update.17:36
IrcsomeBot<DarinMiller> I do not know if "dpkg --configure -a" creates a log (I would be surprised if it didn't, but I am not sure where is lands..)  You could poke around the directories mentioned here: https://linuxhint.com/see-dpkg-apt-history/17:39
user|65Will do...thanks17:40
IrcsomeBot<Ginomfs> Thanks, got it working, had to update Nvidia driver to propriety latest tested. (re @IrcsomeBot: <sem> 'ello. What is the kubuntu paradigm for opening the terminal? I am used to hitting a keyboard shortcut in lubuntu or ubuntu; does kubuntu prefer a different way?)17:44

valorie@Ginomfs I use yakuake and f12 - although you can set it to open on any key20:46
valoriebasically in plasma you can set up key combos to do anything20:47
IrcsomeBot<Ginomfs> Is there anyone who knows how i can access my Plasma Vault. Error after a computer freeze/crash and hard reboot is, Failed to open: The mount point directory is not empty, refusing to open the vault and Failed to open: Unable to perform the operation (error code 12).21:44
semIS there a default keyboard shortcut to open Konsole, or is there a different quick way people open it in KDE?23:12
arraybolt3sem: Ctrl+Alt+T might work.23:25
arraybolt3Newer versions of KDE disabled that shortcut sadly, but you can re-enable it from the Keyboard Shortcuts settings.23:25
arraybolt3(Ctrl+Alt+T is *usually* the "make a terminal pop up" shortcut, why they removed it I do not know. Anyway, if you have to set the shortcut yourself, that's the one you should probably use since that one works pretty much everywhere else.)23:26
semarraybolt3, it doesn't work; last time I tried to enable something in global shortcuts, that didn't work either. What's the other way to enable the shortcut? It was something you had to right click somewhere?23:26
arraybolt3sem: Sadly, I'm not on KDE at the moment so I don't remember :P I know you start by going to the Keyboard Shortcuts window, then I *think* you add Konsole to the list of apps that have shortcuts, and then Ctrl+Alt+T is bound to it by default. I think when you do that it starts working again, though I'm not entirely sure.23:27
semarraybolt3, Thanks for your help. I just had to add "konsole" as an application within system shortcuts, and it came up23:35
semIs there a keyboard shortcut / fast way to shut down?23:44
arraybolt3Power button? You really, *really* do not want an "instant shutdown" button that doesn't ask for confirmation. I learned this the hard way from using a system that did just that when you hit the power button - the number of times I accidentally turned that thing off in the middle of my work was... kinda traumatic :P23:44
semYeah I don't want that23:45
arraybolt3Anyway the power button *should* give you a screen with "Shut down" "Sleep", "Log Out", etc. buttons on it.23:45
sembut for instance, in windows you can press super-x, then u, u, and it shuts down23:45
arraybolt3Power button, left arrow, left arrow, Enter, maybe?23:45
semyes, that works! I hadn't even thought to use the power button :p thanks23:46
arraybolt3I guess the power button might not be very convenient for a desktop, if that's what you're using.23:46
arraybolt3Sure thing!23:46
semi have a laptop, i just didn't think about using it haha23:46
