chelz
is there a good plugin for enabling autosaving after say a few minutes in Kate?
stefan`
hello
i updated to kde4.5 from the kubuntu experimental ppa
however, i don't get the blur effect working, although its enabled
and set to max
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile
GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)
is there some place to look for errors/warnings?

elmargol
someone knows if there iss a lastpass plugin for konqueror or rekonq?
cb400f
no idea what lastpass is, but if there's an extension for chrome it should come to rekonq soon :-)
elmargol
cb400f: yes lastpass has a chrome extension
cb400f: rekonq supports chrome extensions?
cb400f

stefan`
cb400f: it says "kwin(1456) KWin::EffectsHandlerImpl::loadEffect: Trying to load "kwin4_effect_blur"
elmargol
cb400f: great news maybe this makes me switch :)
stefan`
cb400f: kwin(1456): Invalid framebuffer status: 0
cb400f: the "invalid framebuffer" message only shows up right after the blur effect
cb400f: all the others don't have that message
cb400f: but i don't really know what it means
phep
Hi. How can we tell krunner to launch new processes with a current directory different from XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR
tuxick
why does running webradio make kwin use 100% cpu?
using FF which uses mplayer
because the site fails on konq

hello, is it possible to make KDE check word spelling in two languages?

Mehrab_
hi, I've installed awn on my kubuntu, after rebooting it will come up with gnome desktop, how can I bring back KDE?
Torch
Mehrab_: ask on #kubuntu
Mehrab_
Torch: did that before, but isn't this question kind of related to KDE too? if not what kind of question should be asked here?
alienBOB
Mehrab_: your question is about how to reconfigure kubuntu to start KDE instead of Gnome. This question is specific to your distro, not to KDE
pinotree
(most probably by choosing kde at the login manager screen)
alienBOB
The problem will likely be that GDM is now the login manager instead of KDM
pinotree
not that gdm doesn't have a "session" chooser, does it?
Torch
pinotree: he turned on automatic login ;-)
Mehrab_
thats right, auto login is on

i've troubles with phonon on kde 4.4.3
each time i boot i get: the device intel audio bla bla is not working
how can i solve?
cb400f
which phonon backend are you using?
xine or gstreamer.. try if using the other one helps
Marchitos
tried with booth xine and gstreamer
the only strange thing is that phonon is at version 4.4.1 and kde to 4.4.3
but there isn't a newer version available
qt is 4.6.2
cb400f
phonon has its own version number
Marchitos
ah okay
cb400f
.. it's just confusing people cuz it's so close to the kde number :-)
Marchitos
the pc is an acer aspire one, a netbook
and now the preferred backend is xine..
any ideas..?
cb400f
ask your distro.. maybe related to PulseAudio or something
does the sound actually work?
and do non-phonon apps have sound?
Marchitos
mmh..
vlc has no sound
cb400f
so the prob isn't limited to phonon
Marchitos
there is no pulse audio
but if i reinstall the audio card trought the hardware manager
it works
till i boot again
dchmelik
how do you make konsole translucent?
it used to be
cb400f
under profile configuration.. requires compositing
Marchitos
there is no pulse audio running,,
however i am using opensuse..
cb400f
did the sound work before you upgraded to unofficial packages?
and did it perhaps work earlier even in 4.4.3?
Marchitos
i didn't tried..
dchmelik
it says compositing is disabled
Marchitos
but i got no message like "the device is not working,,etc"
dchmelik
oh, now it may be enabled
alienBOB
dchmelik: you can enable compositing if your graphics hardware supports it
cb400f
and driver
Marchitos
mmh..
dchmelik
it will not resume compositing
alienBOB
dchmelik: is it a laptop running on battery power?
dchmelik
no, it is a minicomputer
it only has a Matrox g450
but transluceny worked in KDE3
kde_pepo
dchmelik, it was fake transparency, it only showed background, but no windows behind it
dchmelik
that is what I would prefer... I think I got it working now
the transparency will show when it is at 100% in konsole, right?
or is it the other way around? because XRender says it is working but there is no translucency
where do I find konsole--super user mode (and same for the file manager?)
cb400f
find? in the menu? .. there's no super user file manager in vanilla kde anymore
afaik
but e.g. krusader has it
of course you can do 'kdesu dolphin' or so if you want
dchmelik
apparently I cannot edit it into the menu either... this is really stone age
Torch
dchmelik: why can't you?
dchmelik
when you try to select an area of the menu to add something (or also resize it,) that is just how it is
Torch
dchmelik: i have no idea what you mean, but you can edit the menu with the kmenueditor. right click on the kickoff button and select "menu editor"
dchmelik
thanks, I see what you said... the other thing is someone said you can resize the menu, but I never found out how
(to get rid of the scroll bars)
ayevee
[13:24] <ayevee> hello, is it possible to make KDE check word spelling in two languages?
[13:24] <ayevee> english and russian in my case
Torch
dchmelik: it has a size grip in one corner
dchmelik
thanks for explaining that

printer applet is the most annoying thing ever
it keeps poping up and dissapearing like crazy
S_sun
What defines whether this or that icon id displayed by default in the "Desktop Folder" directory panel that pops up when starting KDE4? I see a Firefox icon there, I didn't put it there.
EagleScreen_
where is defined the default location to the save file dialog?
cb400f
S_sun: normally that would be a .desktop file in the folder which folder view is configured to show - normally ~/Desktop
xelister
hey nepomuk developers,
fu*k you for bringing this bullsh*t "Social Semantic Desktop" crap to my system! Now it's bloated as Vista
Walzmyn
xelister: just turn it off like i did
xelister
what the hells is Social Semantic Desktop anyway?
did this guys smoked weed with some stuff from Apple?
ufa
xelister, can you control yourself? You are not in home
neverendingo
xelister: this is no appropriate behaviour, no matter how angry you might be about it
xelister
ok sorry, stil lI think I am a little entitled to speak for all the user's computers that slow down to crawl, or just failed (various bugs) thanks to this idea. We dont want MS style bloatware on our nice linuxes (most of us)
sure I disabled it. Now I have to do it for all friends. And still many newbies will not do it, and it will be an opinion that linux "is slow" now.
alisonken1home
xelister, since it's linux, you have the option of selecting what you install - or remove - unlike the other OS
EagleScreen_
when I save a file in any KDE application, the file dialog is located in a folder out of my home, it'd be desirable for me that folder would be my home, where can I change it?
xelister
alisonken1home: sure, fortunatelly it was easy to fix this
neverendingo
xelister: the first step would be, explain your problem in detail, apart from "bloatware". then give steps to reproduce your problem. Because from experience, not all users have that problem. That way you can be helped in a friendly and nice manner
xelister
neverendingo: nepomuku is a file that uses tons of resources to scan all my desktop
*program
neverendingo
xelister: are you really sure it is nepomuk or maybe even strigi?
xelister
neverendingo: top
that and virtuosomething, another unwanted thing
neverendingo
xelister: i am not the best to help you with that, but what i know is, the people around here or on other support channels are really nice and helpful if they are asked like that
xelister: "unfortunately" it works for me like a charm, even with strigi enabled in systemsettings
xelister: oh, and always state a bit more information, like the versions you are using, there are huge changes between those
xelister
I spent long hours to get apps working after this akonadi/seppuku/virtuosomething stuff added, and also today, computer slowing down to crawl thanks to seppuku+vrituososomething. Now it's disabled. For me. Think of the other users. Also look how many bugs there are already. I'm against such bloatware culture being by default enabled in linuxes.
bloatware, because: It's unwanted (I never said I want this ***, it just comes as part of ubuntu 10.04), it's slow, it's buggy. Yuck. Feels like Vista
neverendingo
xelister: as said, my setup is working fine, with defaults enabled. causes might be different things. distro, hardware, configuration...
xelister
perhaps ubuntu distro is more to blame here, not sure.
pinotree
xelister: can you please stop using insults and mean language here?
xelister
Ubuntu really tried to be the next Vista. Also with 3d desktop, that has some gimmicks, but is far less usable and also slower (even on powerfull computer with good gfx)
Sho_

suspend to ram via powerdevil seems broken in 4.4.3, any hint?
quesada
I have a gigantic X process. Always top entry in 'top'. Usinng sabayon 5.2 KDE. tried to pinpoint it to an app, but right now I think is generalized. Any idea what to try next?
Mutant
hi
can anybody tell me how to install KDE in Ubuntu 10.04
Torch
Mutant: #kubuntu
cb400f
Mutant: 'apt-get install kubuntu-desktop' afaik.. but better asks the kubuntuists to be sure
Mutant
ok thanks
Torch: Thanks
cb400f: Thanks
uspenok
can i install kde on OS X ?
not only packages, amarok etc but whol kde with workspace and other
pinotree
uspenok: #kde-mac
jagged
high all
i'm having the problem with opensuse 11.2, that under KDE3 the application menu is completely empty (except the session switch stuff and the like)... how can i restore it (maybe by importing the kde4 menu?)???
well, btw, the control center submenu is also empty... that kind of sucks... what could have gone wrong?
uspenok
jagged: have u try on another acc ?
jagged
there is only one account, uspenok :-) fresh installation...
where is the menu structure stored anyway?
sredna2
jagged: try running kbuildsycoca
that should regenerate the menu in kde 3
someone knows what is required for an ad hoc network? avahi? zeroconf?
tdnicho
good morning...the "restart" icon disappeared from the KDE "Leave" menu...how do i add it back?
jagged
well.... i have read that name before, no idea what it means, but can't be all that bad... but again: where are the menu entries stored???
oh, run it as root or normal user?
sredna2
jagged: "kbuildsycoca --noincremental", just as you :)
jagged
thanks :-)
nothing changed...
titou
hi
sredna2
sorry, jagged

since several weeks each time I launch KMail for the first time, the akonadi window which tell me there is an error appears and once I close it, kmail is closed too
if I restart kmail again, it works
I'm using KDE 4.4.2 and the akonadi error is not important
sredna2
titou: i have that too. what system are you running?
titou
Mandriva
it's very boring :(
sredna2
ok, run something completely different
the error is annoying, and absolutely useless for normal people
and full of lies too, i think they make assumptions
titou
yeah
in particular the "error" is that there were a previous mysql log which contains some errors
but it's not true errors
it's just warning
sredna2
akonadi is alpha state
never suspend your system, unless you remember to restart akonadi and kontact when you wake it up, or you are in for data loss an grief, with out warnings
titou
I didn't know that
sredna2
something is also leaving stale lock files for your addressbooks, maybe kmail, which is using kabc.
i don't think developers use suspend :p
titou
I'm afraid about the KDE 4.5 since KMail will fully use Akonadi !
jagged
i'm off... thanks for your help...
bye
titou
so there is no solution to avoid that?
Lantizia
Does kate do any kind of autosaving?
I just found out it crashes if you try to cut a collapsed segment of text and I've lost my work
alin
Lantizia: should be in ~
Lantizia: should be in filename~
Lantizia
and what if it was never saved?
you know what, forget it - I've had enough of KDE. I can't think of one single application that came with Kubuntu 10.04 that hasn't crashed so far
titou
Lantizia: then maybe there is a problem with your distribution
Lantizia
Oh I don't doubt it, it's ubuntu lol
titou
I use KDE all the time and hopefully my applications don't crash
Lantizia
Nothing can ever be really ready by a definition of... Oh look it's April/October
alin
Lantizia: if you use stable versions of kde should be no problems... at least I have not seen any on opensuse
Lantizia: if you use beta versions you take the risks
