00:50.24martmankind of a weird question, i heard that awhile back there was a change in the QT license and now im wondering why im not seeing some kde apps for win/max
00:50.30martmanstill another catch somewhere?
00:52.23annmamartman: you heard
00:52.37annmayou should verify what you hear
00:52.50annmaand also state your question more precisely
00:52.52DhraakellianQt4 is available on windows under the GPL now
00:53.10annmahowever this is from just a few days
00:53.24annmaso probably there are no apps built in that time
00:53.25Dhraakellianwhich means that, when KDE gets ported from Qt3 to Qt4
00:53.53Dhraakellianand if someone actually has the motivation to get stuff compiling and working on windows
00:53.54annmaand qt4 free for win does not mean qt apps for windows
00:54.00Dhraakellianthen it'll happen
00:54.17annmaDhraakellian: you can't use it to build qt only app on qindows?
00:54.48annmamartman: where was there a catch previously?
00:55.03Dhraakellianannma, well, he was asking about KDE apps
00:55.19annmahe probably does not know what he is asking in fact
00:56.02martmankde runs on what seems to be every X, cgywin runs craploads of unix/X stuff for win
00:56.11DhraakellianI'm sure someone will work on getting KDE to run on Windows when KDE4 comes around
00:56.12martmanso i was asking is the QT license the only problem stopping them
00:56.15martmanor if theres even more
00:56.16annmawhat was the catch previously?
00:56.27annmathe problem is windows itself
00:56.35martmanhow is it windows?
00:56.37annmawho wants to code dlls?
00:56.51annmamartman: are you a developer/
00:56.59martmanim a wanna be one....why?
00:57.09annmaa wanna be
00:57.12annmaI see
00:57.30Dhraakellianand a lot of KDE programmers just don't want to waste time porting KDE when that time could be spent making improvements to it on *nix platforms
00:57.37annmaif you want to evelop on windows, then do it
00:57.54annma1) is there a market for your app on windows?
00:58.11martmanDhraakellian yeah, kinda figured but was afraid of that
00:58.17martmanwould be nice to get a couple going on win...

00:58.46madpenguin8annma: I ask myself this all the time

00:58.57dpydoes anyone here know a KScreensaver plugin that just runs a command or script whenever the screensaver should be active ?
00:59.01annmayeah? 2 desktops? 1 on top of the other?
00:59.12annmamartman: then run Linux
00:59.21annmause wine for the rest
00:59.25martmanwhen it basicly hates all my hardware...
00:59.36annmasurely not
00:59.49DhraakellianIf some windows user wants to port KDE4 apps, there's nothing legally stopping them
00:59.55annmaby another PC if it was so which I doubt
01:00.03annmaDhraakellian: of course not
01:00.14annmaas KDE is GPL
01:00.30Dhraakellianbut many developers don't have that itch to scratch
01:00.33annmamartman: video card?
01:00.41annmamartman: sound card?
01:00.41Dhraakellianin fact, many would see it as scratching a festering boil
01:00.59Dhraakellian(excuse any hyperbole there if sentiments aren't quite that strong)
01:02.03annmamartman: be smart if you want to develop and develop for KDE, you'll have more public than for windows where noone will never use your app

01:03.02ZombieSo, I need assistance with a Cosmetic issue.
01:03.09Dhraakelliandpy, I don't know.  That doesn't mean that no one else does though
01:03.22internatnote quiet sure if this is the right place.. anywho.. im using kubuntu, and i just installed it, and i haven o sound, lsmod shows the module as being loaded, but i get no sound and alsamixer says fatal error default device does not exist etc
01:03.32DhraakellianZombie, ask away; someone might just know the answer
01:04.18ZombieI have a cosmetic issue with Linux thinking my CD Burner is a Vanilla CDROM
01:04.26ZombieOnly KDE's desktop Doesn't identify it right.
01:04.35ZombieThis is isolaated to one node that thinks its burner is a CD Rom
01:04.44ZombieK3B sees it.
01:04.53ZombieI have another CD ROM running the exact same OS as this one.
01:05.09ZombieAnd, it shows up as a burner correctly.
01:05.14ZombieI can make  you screenshots if  you like.

01:07.37dpyreally weird

01:07.57dpyto create a "executable" screensaver plugin
01:08.04dpythat just runs an executable or a script

01:08.26internati take it no one has any ideas?
01:08.40ZombieTried both
01:09.12madpenguin8Zombie: iirc 2.6.11 has issues with burners
01:09.56madpenguin8Zombie: tried your distros forums?
01:09.59Dhraakellianinternat, I see you're already in #ubuntu and #kubuntu, so I won't advise checking in there
01:10.07Dhraakellian#alsa maybe?
01:10.19internatyeah i asked in ubuntu and they said try here and kubuntu
01:10.28ZombieI don't think this is a Kernel issue becaise thoes two nodes run the same kernel./

01:11.14Dhraakellianwell, if it's saying that a device doesn't exist (rather than saying that it's in use), it'd be my guess that it's not a kde/arts problem
01:11.17dpyis there a better channel to ask questions about kscreensaver ?
01:11.43Dhraakelliandpy, well, if there's a #kscreensaver channel, maybe
01:12.07Dhraakellianotherwise maybe just wait for someone more knowledgeable about kscreensaver
01:13.03madpenguin8dpy: this is prolly the place
01:13.46madpenguin8that doesnt make sense

01:14.11dpyI've seen some weird screensavers that have been ported to KDE
01:14.20Dhraakelliansince high-graphics stuff at 1600x1200 is probably a tad much for this poor intel graphics hardware

03:44.48CyberSpyWow, the Fedora team, really took Gnome involvement to a whole new level with Core 4
03:45.03CyberSpyWhat a pain this has been
03:46.00benJImanit's never been good for kde
03:46.03ironfroggyis there anyway to have a psuedo-block device or just a file even that sound can be piped to and read for arts?
03:46.04gwidion_Hi there... I'd need to know the staus of some translations of KDE. Documentation translations, and I can't find them under  .
03:46.54gwidion_Actually I do not even know if each package documentation trasnlation is counted within the package itself, or in some separated package.
03:47.53benJImanare they still using bluecurve for kde?
03:48.35Vensonnot sure...i haven't used them since FC3, which i only used for a couple days
03:48.51Vensonthey switched to Clearlooks for Gnome....dunno if they use it for kde also
03:49.01benJImandon't think so
03:49.18thiagogwidion_: contact the translation coordinator for the language you want to translate to
03:49.45doleybironfroggy: you can run artsdsp, and from within that pipe things to /dev/dsp, and arts will get it.
03:49.58*** join/#kde edmetric (

03:52.09ironfroggybenJIman: the multiple artsd processes are conflicting trying to access the same dsp device
03:52.22benJImanironfroggy: but I can output multiple things to /dev/dsp at once
03:52.28thiagoyou shouldn't have multiple artsds
03:52.39ironfroggythiago: then how else can i do it?
03:52.44thiagobenJIman: that means your soundcard accepts multiple streams
03:52.47thiagoironfroggy: run one only
03:53.10ironfroggythiago: but how do i get multiple users then to use the same artsd? ive tackled this before, but ive never found a solution.
03:53.13benJImanthiago: ah so it depends on the card/driver?
03:53.33thiagoironfroggy: you can only have one user sitting in front of the computer, at a time
03:53.38thiagobenJIman: yes
03:53.51anankebenJIman : cards based on emu10k1 can do that [for example]
03:53.53ironfroggythiago: well duh
03:54.04ironfroggythiago: but i usually have more than that actually logged into kde at a time.
03:54.11thiagoironfroggy: any other user doesn't have to run artsd, because he can't play sounds anyway
03:54.16thiagoironfroggy: ah, ok
03:54.22thiagobut you can only have one user active
03:54.44thiagoartsd is supposed to disconnect from the sound device after a timeout
03:54.46ironfroggythiago: well it never seems to work anyway. i have the timeout set on artsd for 60 seconds, but the second user never seems to be able to play sound.
03:55.02thiagoafter 60 seconds, has it released the card?
03:55.21ironfroggyyes, although that user then has exclusive permissions to the device and i need to change them.
03:56.11thiagothat isn't artsd's doing
03:56.44ironfroggywell i can solve that seperately, but when i do get the second user to grab the dsp, and artsd is running ok under that user, sound still wont play. i cant get a mixer right now.
03:57.18gwidion_Hi Thiago - I had done that a week ago. They gave me a non-working list subscription address - and now I am in  need of this information for tomorrow.
03:57.34doleybironfroggy: what kind of workstation setup do you have, where multiple users are close enough to hear the same soundcard??
03:57.53ironfroggydoleyb: its just a home computer.

03:58.16ironfroggymy wife and I both stay logged in simultaniously, because we dont like reopening everything all the time.
03:58.47thiagoironfroggy: what do you do to make it play?
03:58.52gwidion_ironfroggy, Makes sense! I'd do it here if I had enough ram.
03:59.22ironfroggygwidion_: it doesnt take that much. with both of us using KDE, most of the memory is shared libraries. emphasis on shared.
03:59.27ironfroggythiago: Juk

04:00.31gwidion_ironfroggy: Yeah..but she works, and I with the GIMP and large images...soemtimes the RAM is not enough for a single of these sessions.
04:00.32ironfroggywell, normally after fixing the permissions i can get the sound to play, and i leave Juk open as long as i want to make sure a user keeps control of the sound.

04:02.20lord_crowcan anyone help me ?
04:02.45Dhraakelliannot if you don't ask your question
04:03.52ironfroggyproblem solved! ALL of the sound devices (including the mixer) were currently owned by my wife's account.
04:04.00lord_crowok, this is what's happening: two days ago, i installed dropline gnome in my slackware 10.1 machine, and then, sound it's just dead, like muted, but every log and status shows that's ok
04:04.02ironfroggyi really need to take some time and work all the bugs out of my system...
04:04.05ironfroggythanks thiago.
04:04.38lord_crowi allready ask in #dropline, and cannot help me with that
04:04.48doleybironfroggy: But where do your users sit, if you usually have multiple concurrent logins?
04:04.57ironfroggydoleyb: same chair.
04:05.13ironfroggydoleyb: we just use multiple simultanious X sessions.
04:05.48Dhraakelliandoes arts give you any sort of error message when you start KDE?
04:05.55lord_crowDhraakellian: nop
04:05.58ironfroggyalthough im planning to toss in an extra video card and see if i can set up an X session on each card so we can both use the same computer at the same time.
04:06.04Dhraakelliananything about it continuing and using the null output device?
04:06.24lord_crowDhraakellian: nop, i started artsd manually and starts ok
04:06.49Dhraakellianwhat does the kcontrol module say?
04:06.50ironfroggylater people
04:06.52doleybironfroggy: if you spend $30 on a soundblaster card, it won't be a problem at all.
04:06.53lord_crowDhraakellian: with alsa, oss, esd, all the same behaviour
04:07.21Dhraakelliananything else hogging the sound card?
04:07.24ironfroggydoleyb: i shouldnt have to. the sound drivers ought to merge the streams if the card doesnt support it. but alas, im too lazy to patch them myself.
04:07.27lord_crowDhraakellian: nop
04:07.54doleybironfroggy: yes, that would seem natural... but the driver guys refuse to do so, because "That's not the documented behavior"
04:08.43lord_crowDhraakellian: no problem, i can live without the kde events... 'cause everything else works just fine
04:09.34DhraakellianI actually turned all the notification sounds off
04:09.52Dhraakellianafter I got over the thrill of rapidly changing virtual  desktops
04:10.01Dhraakellian(what a rush, man!)
04:10.39DhraakellianI got used to not having them  back on an old celeron notebook with crappy speakers and a crappier headphone jack

09:06.35welsondstambou, i'm not sure if its effective though.. there really is not much of instructions..
09:07.17PhilRodgoo: I think KDE apps take the environment of the shell in which 'startkde' is run
09:07.48PhilRodgoo: so for example, I set envars and then run startkde in ~/.xinitrc. (I start KDE with 'startx')
09:07.54PhilRodthat works nicely
09:07.59oGALAXYoi find the statement that kde apps are behaving differently than NORMAL apps quite misleading and wrong.

10:16.41canllaithoGALAXYo: really? seeing the distro specific gentoo script makes me assume gentoo is quite whacky, rather than udev ;)

10:19.48oGALAXYoerr wrong screenshot...
10:20.32Ravenskyheh, irssi :P
10:20.57oGALAXYoi meant that one
10:21.04RavenskyI dont get why people use irssi if you have X running. If you have X, use it
10:21.06canllaithiMac, linux desktop, linux laptop
10:21.14benJImanRavensky: why do you ask?
10:21.26canllaithBecause then I don't have to kill/logout irc on a machine that's downstairs to get on irc upstairs and see what's happening?
10:22.07canllaithscreen + irssi is great for leaving it running on a server then logging in from varying machines
10:22.10benJImanRavensky: irssi is nice for running in a screen on a remote machine
10:22.17canllaithspecially with the iMac
10:22.22canllaithCan't find any decent OSX IRC clients
10:22.30Ravenskyxchat aqua!
10:22.37canllaithYeah, it's ok.
10:22.47canllaithcan't stand colloquy
10:22.58benJImansomeone linked me to a gui-irssi type thing for osx a while back, can't remember where it was
10:23.08canllaithIt's awful.
10:23.16canllaithIt's using irssi backend
10:23.36canllaithThere is another irssi based client that I couldn't get working stably. So much easier to use screen.
10:23.46RavenskyI just use xchat, whether on Linux or windows
10:23.53benJImangrrr I've turned on accesskeys in this kopete window, can't turn them off
10:24.00benJImanRavensky: but that's gtk :/

10:24.14benJImanRavensky: tried konversation?
10:24.26Ravenskyyes, I have
10:24.33canllaithKonvi is getting very very nice.
10:24.34Sho_canllaithn: Snak & Colloquy are pretty good on the Mac
10:24.43Ravenskyit's nice, but I still like xchat better
10:24.55canllaithSho_: no, they're not. They're bloody awful if you're using a g3.
10:25.18canllaithOn the dual g5 they run ok. On the g3 machines colloquy in particular runs dog slow.
10:25.36oGALAXYog3 without altivec is slow yes..
10:25.49canllaithg3 runs every other app fine.
10:25.52Sho_canllaith: Snak, too? I can see how Colloquy might have performance probs, since it's using XSL and WebCore for the presentational layer, but Snak should be fairly fast, I thought ..
10:25.57oGALAXYobeginning with g4 you can use the benefits of altivec and pull a lot of stuff through its vector unit.
10:26.10oGALAXYogood for huge memory movements, sorting of lists and stuff like that
10:26.15canllaithThere is nothing wrong with the speed of the g3, the app is shit.
10:26.19benJIman anyone know how to turn these off
10:26.19Ravenskywee! old iMacs!
10:26.34oGALAXYobenJIman: yes, press either shift, alt, or ctrl
10:26.37canllaithIt runs safari/iChat/iTunes all that jazz fast.
10:26.40canllaithRavensky: aint they cute? :)
10:26.42PhilRodbenJIman: hit Ctrl

18:47.04athlonStevenR, oh yeah, dunno why I didnt see that "show size" option :-)
18:47.08StevenRananke: then uninstall gnome ?
18:47.33anankeStevenR : can't uninstall it completely, due to a few apps relying on a crap load of crappy gnome libraries/etc.
18:47.35athlonStevenR, okay, how do I save the setting so everytime it starts up, it will use that size ?
18:47.39StevenRananke: if you just move the gnome.desktop file somewhere else, or change the exec and tryexec bits?
18:47.53StevenRathlon: settings -> save as default
18:48.00anankeStevenR : removing that file works, but i'm trying to figure out a way which will not be affected by a kde upgrade
18:48.54StevenRananke: change the file contents so that it doesn't find gnome and then chmod 000?
18:49.03StevenRpossibly that would break kdm
18:49.06athlonStevenR, thank you
18:49.13StevenRathlon: np :)
18:50.13StevenRananke: or there might be another way of making the file unchangeable after you modify it?
18:50.36anankeStevenR : well, changing the content of that file would be similar to removing it. i also find that chattr would be a bit of a nasty hack to do that
18:50.57StevenRananke: alternatively, make gnome-session not there in some way, eg -x
18:51.11StevenRor whatever gnome.desktop points to
18:51.56anankefor other things i export KDEDIRS=/my/location, and that's where i store our settings. i was hoping changing gnome.desktop in /my/location/share/apps/kdm/sessions would take care of that

22:48.53simcop2388grepper, you know a way i can create my own sidebar?
22:48.54rumanziniI refer to access to the application, it would be kmail or another program, that a pass would be demanded to open the program
22:49.01rumanziniI hope you understand me :)
22:49.27canllaithRavensky: I'm around now, why did you ask ?
22:50.18grepperchange the perms so that only a specific user or group can use the app I guess

22:52.09Ravenskycanllaith, nevermind
22:52.23rumanziniok, I'll try change it for the root, what I want is that my family don't be able to access to kmail while I'm going out, because I leave turned of the computer

22:57.49grepperso chown root:root `which kmail` is not going to cut it :)
22:57.49doleybrumanzini: maybe kiosk mode is what you want?
22:58.00grepperyou will need to change the perms
22:58.51grepperwhy don't you just create user accounts for them and not let them use your account ?
23:00.46rumanziniI let them using the computer, but I wouldn't like they can read my email, and I usually leave the computer downloading in p2p and in this way my session is open and they can access to kmail o whatever they want, it's that I want to avoid
23:01.30rumanziniI have done chmod 700 /usr/bin/kmail and then (copying from the icon that launches synaptic) this: /usr/sbin/su-to-root -X -c kmail
23:02.08rumanzininow it demands the root password for opening the program, I introduce it but kmail doesn't open, I don't understand :(
23:02.30rumanzinidoleyb I don't know what kiosk mode is, I'm going to investigate :)
23:04.03grepperlock your session and let them open another session
23:04.08madpenguin8kpov r0Xors
23:04.51grepperyour solution is not going to be good for you anyway, as you will end up running kmail as root

23:06.45grepperdoesn't your lock session dialog give an option to run a new session ?
23:06.50greppermine does
23:06.58grepperthat is what this is for
23:07.07grepperthis kind of situation
23:07.26grepperkmenu->lock session
23:07.34doleybI used to have one of those, but not anymore (new session button)
23:07.41grepperyou use kdm ?
23:07.55doleybme, i use kdm yes.
23:08.17doleybi have debian.  long ago, an auto-upgrade added choices for new session, and then later they went away again.
23:08.39doleybits not important for me, i was just curious what enables that button.
23:09.00rumanzinijejje it works perfectly, I've just tested it, I had never fixed in that option...
23:09.50rumanzinithank you very much grepper and doleyb

23:38.41RoeySo this columnist here proposes that KDE abandon Qt for its next release:

23:43.13HuntsManRoey: sounds like pure FUD
23:43.58RoeyHuntsMan:  this guy is proposing that kde switch over JUST BECAUSE of the license?
23:44.58Roeysilly columnist.
23:45.09Roeyhow many times have I heard the counterarguments to this fud before.
23:45.15Ravenskyhow does KDE get permission to use Qt anyhow? I thought Qt didnt have a public lisense
23:45.15HuntsManRed Hat, Sun and Novell. None of them, that is right, zero out of three, use KDE for their enterprise desktop
23:45.18HuntsManyeah right
23:45.25HuntsManRavensky: GPL license
23:45.28canllaithQt does have gpl license
23:45.36Ravenskyit does? heh
23:45.38canllaithand KDE have made negotiations with Qt to ensure there will always be a free Qt for KDE
23:45.51Ravenskyhas it always been GPL?
23:45.51*** join/#kde mvincent (~mvincent@
23:45.57HuntsManRavensky: no
23:46.30Ravenskyhmm, I guess I never noticed that it switched to GPL before
23:46.48CondorDesThe author's main point seems to be that commercial developers can't release closed-source software for KDE without paying for the Qt license. I'm not seeing a problem here... ;P
23:46.56Roeycanllaith:  also, he uses insure incorrectly.
23:47.00Roeycanllaith:  instead of 'ensure'
23:47.05canllaithRoey: heh you pedant you
23:47.16canllaithI know of at least 2 businesses in NZ that use a commercial Qt license
23:47.21Ravenskyhmm. I dont get how Linspire gets away with making people pay for free software
23:47.22Roeyoh I thought you said "how pedantic of you"
23:47.23Roeymy bad.
23:47.28Roeycanllaith:  it really bothered me :(
23:47.33canllaithBecause interestingly enough, it's not free software!
23:47.34Roeycanllaith:  but you used it correctly!
23:47.48canllaithThey brand it, package it, add nice things to it and ask you to pay for their work. No problems.
23:47.51canllaithThey also release all the sources
23:48.00canllaithI'm currencly using linspire themes for example that I grabbed the sources of and built on slackware
23:48.04HuntsManyeah, no problem
23:48.12Ravenskyya, I'm using the Linspire theme right now too
23:48.15canllaithNothing stopping you from downloading free linspire if you wanted to.
23:48.25Ravenskybut the CNR thing
23:48.29canllaithThey don't exactly flash neon lights about it, but it's all there as per gpl terms.
