00:17.56Brandenblah... cant figure this xrandr thing out
00:18.28ghwhen you type xrandr it should pump out the modes your moniter supports
00:18.43ghtype xrandr -s (mode#)
00:18.56ghjc, i suppose the better question is. whats a edit box?
00:19.36Branden(mode#) is like 1280X1024 right?
00:19.46ghyou can do that
00:19.53ghbut do it like 1280x1024
00:20.16ghthere should also be a single digit number under the SZ heading
00:20.18ghwell
00:20.25ghdouble digit if you have a bunch of modes
00:20.25Brandenheh, confoozign

00:26.30olszewsgh: hmm, in suse the used to be a Xftconfig file somewhere in my homedir.  It's not there anymore.  I want to turn on antialiasing for bold fonts.  :(
00:26.30ghthere is a qt class that deals with that sort of thing
00:26.30olszews(by it's not there anymore, I mean in debian)
00:26.32jcgh where are you looking it up actually?
00:26.35gholszews, you can do that with the configure > font tool in kde
00:27.03ghjc, no. there should be a qt howto that states the common gui classes however
00:27.37ghi dont personally develop in qt. i figured there would be a api list though. cant seem to find it.
00:28.38AmantalathWhen i try to start KDE my computer crashes and i must reinstall mandrake...I start kde with the rm -rf / command (a friend told me to use that)

00:35.51ironfroggyfunny how?
00:35.53marcmironfroggy but where is that menu?
00:36.02ZwaX_like no processes, and only 8's in the statistics!
00:36.07ironfroggymarcm, usually in the bottom-left hand corner of your screen.
00:36.30ironfroggyZwaX_, ah, well, thats called the FUBAR syndrome. try reopening?
00:36.34gobbleZwaX_: It's not fully loaded!
00:36.34Brandenquestion: how do i get something like GAIM or Xchat to flash on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen when someone say something?
00:36.43ZwaX_ironfroggy, reopening doesn't help - it does it every time!
00:37.31marcmironfroggy in KMAIL?
00:37.34ironfroggyvery odd. no idea. FUBAR.

00:51.00andersSigh
00:51.01crunge_I'm having a weird issue. With the generic "nv" driver, everything works peachy (except GL stuff, of course). But with the "nvidia" driver, the font sizes are annoyingly too big for root, and several inches high as a normal user.
00:52.19crunge_the normal user fonts are so large, that you can fit 2 lines of text on the 1024x768 screen. The only thing I can do is switch out and kill KDM
00:53.07ZwaX_sysguard came back after 10 minutes or so: http://snipurl.com/weird_sysguard2
00:53.28ZwaX_notice how flat the graphs are - it's like it sampled all the points for those graphs at once point in time.
00:54.10crunge_any ideas what the problem could be?
00:54.18andersInfohawk: :)
00:54.34ZwaX_it turns out that the file I was copying was stopping sysguard from working.
00:59.30nyetzscheif I have ALSA on my Linux box, and thus do not want the SW mixing of audio by artsd, how do I configure KDE to just use ALSA?
