00:23.00Dhraakellianlet's see, I think i heard somewhere that the main reason that Firefox's preferences menu item is in the Edit menu is due to gnome's HIG

00:41.34LeStat-damn thats easy

00:41.43Renzeno problem
00:42.20LeStat-i would copy the wrapper into that autostart dir it opens then?
00:43.09Renzeyou can put links, .desktop files, scripts, whatever in there, and they will start when you log in
00:44.49LeStat-now if i could just figure out how to take a window decoration file downloaded from kde-look and install it...i tried the directions there but it didnt work, theres no install new theme button in the control center as the directions say
00:45.11Renzewindow decorations aren't themes
00:45.24LeStat-well i mean the win dec section of the control center
00:45.30LeStat-dont see options for installing new ones
00:45.44Renzeof course not... window decorations need to be compiled
00:45.56Renzethey're native code, unless they're icewm themes

01:25.14vanRijnI have this really weird problem.  I have built kde 3.4 beta1 with konstruct and have it installed.  Whether I log in through kdm or gdm, I can only successfully start my kde session once--the first time after a reboot.  Any other time, ksplash (and my whole kde session) hangs when it's trying to start up.

01:28.52DhraakellianI have no idea what causes it
01:29.23vanRijnI can't get it to work!
01:29.28Dhraakellianmost of my X restarts have involved some teeth-gnashing since moving to 3.4beta1
01:29.44Dhraakellianmostly because it seems to be handling ~/.kde differently
01:30.06vanRijnI rm -rf /tmp/*gideon* (my userid is gideon), and rm $HOME/.ICEAuthority, and even kill every single one of my processes.  But it still hangs.
01:30.13Dhraakellianbut I suspect that the .kde issue is a gentoo thing
01:30.47vanRijnI can't figure out what it's doing different on other-than-the first time KDE starts per reboot, but something is different, and it doesn't look like it's caused by any leftover running processes, at least not for my userid.

03:56.32canllaith'clock skew' ?
03:57.19mattrbasically, something went all wonky with your clock, so *make thinks it needs to recompile.
03:57.39canllaithand what would cause something all wonky to happen with my clock between typing make and make install?

09:51.33slayerbobi have always found kernel compilation particularly easy
09:51.40Winblowzdid it all in the root shell
09:51.42slayerbobtype in the commands, wait for it to finish...
09:51.48Winblowzand ive forgotten all the cmds
09:52.02Winblowzi know its /usr/src
09:52.06Renzeyou can only build kernels as root
09:52.06Winblowzthats bout it though
09:52.08slayerbobconfiguring a kernel prior to compilation is of course a different matter :)
09:52.17slayerbobRenze: nonsense
09:52.27slayerbobit is recommended by linus that you not build them as root

This area has a (usually incomplete) set of kernel headers that are used by the library header files. They should match the library, and not get messed up by whatever the kernel-du-jour happens to be."

13:56.18jm_we looked in KDE control center but couldn't find anything about it
13:56.54Trevelyanwhat version? i've not seen kde do that since 2
13:57.38jm_he says that old version didn't do it, but new one does it, I'll ask him after he tries a suggestion by someone from #debian ("Desktop" -> "Window behaviour" -> "Advanced", "Active Desktop Borders")
13:59.54Trevelyanyour #debian peep is right, its there, just me getting it wrong. i was thinking you couldn't realy do that any more because it would conflict with multihead systems which is becoming more common

16:34.58Trevelyanethicsgradient, wrong model may not be the porblem, to why you dont see them in xev

16:35.47ethicsgradientI've read about that too, a bit.  Someone said I could see the scancodes on the console or in dmesg, but I haven't been able to get that to work
16:35.53Trevelyanto the a real console (ie atl+ctrl+f1) and press the keys see if the kernel says something (on screen or in dmesg)
16:36.06Trevelyan*go to...
16:36.49Trevelyanit may say it seen an unreciognised scancode and suggect you use setkeycodes to set a keycode for it
16:37.40Trevelyanalternately if its being quite, you can try "showkey" in a real console
16:38.22ethicsgradienthrm, maybe I don't know how to go to the real console....alt+ctrl+f1 gets me to a console where it looks like I could potentially log in, and I can't seem to get any system messages there

18:31.12vanRijnI would LOVE to see some of the features that systemtray2 provides (like customizing the arrow icon, like allowing for priority of icons in it (if I always want the power icon to be the left-most icon), like specifying an animation speed for the collapse/expansion) integrated into systemtray for KDE 3.4

22:19.55PhilRodcan you put 'exec ssh-agent <ssh-agent-command-to-run-startkde>' in your ~/.xinitrc?

22:21.46PhilRodare you using [xkg]dm to log in?

22:27.54duffbeerhello .. i actually did some  very stupid just now. deleted my kmail folders ... i somehow managed to restore my mail, but not all of it ... only the top directories showed up. all the subfolders are gone. any idea why subfolders would disappear but not main ones?  
22:29.14PhilRodthe actual messages are stored in ~/Mail. Is that what you deleted?
22:30.10illogic-alhalf an hour should be enough.
22:30.18illogic-alsooooooooo. what's up folks
22:30.19duffbeerphilrod i deleted /home/f2/ which had Mail/ in it
22:30.52duffbeerbut i somehow had a copy of the current top directories in  /mnt/hdg/newt-copy/Mail/
22:31.28PhilRodduffbeer: there's some sort of weird format where subfolders are stored in Mail/.<foldername>.directory, so make sure you copied everything including dot-files
22:31.29duffbeeralthough all the subdirectories (where the main info was) are gone. vanished. it's just so ... X-ed-out files.

22:37.00PhilRodonly if the player has mp3 support - afaik some do
22:37.44Nargmeh, time for reseach.
22:38.43duffbeerah hah .. ok ... i thinki saved my own butt here... but now i am just trying to tell kmail to use another location to read its files. how do i do that?
22:39.08illogic-alyou can't
22:39.19illogic-alyou symlink the old location to the new one
22:39.40duffbeerah yes symlink will do it. thanks.

23:23.48mikmorgeh... no thanks
23:24.16mikmorgi find it silly that there isn't a general tool built into kde to move windows between screens
23:24.23mikmorgif there isn't, that is
23:24.30Renzemikmorg: you mean virtual desktops, or physical monitors?
23:24.38mikmorgphysical monitors
23:24.47mikmorgdifferent desktops

23:25.22Renzesorry, can't help with that... I only have one monitor
23:25.42mikmorgthanks anyway
23:25.52mikmorgits the only prob i have w/ using dual mons & dual desktops

23:26.42mikmorgno, i don't know jack about xinerama
