jhutchinsjann: Any luck in #firefox then?
rljjhutchins: i haven't actively told anything to automount
jannjhutchins: no, so far no response
rljjhutchins: before, it would give me the popup on any media insert and if i hit "open in a new window", konq would open and automount upon access. if i hit cancel however, it would remain unmounted. this is what i want. now, however, even if i hit cancel, kde goes ahead and mounts it anyway (and i can even see the mount process dialog for a second (when my cd drive spins up))
jannjhutchins: its strange: it works with the german lp, but not with the spanish one
rljjhutchins: i have no idea when this behavior got introduced, but upon booting the edgy livecd, i can see that it is indeed not the default behaviour. there, if i hit cancel, it will not mount anything...
jhutchins: and i don't have ivman installed, so it can't get messed up by that either...
dromerhi all, atm I'm trying to have dual-screen on my htpc with the composite-out of my Geforce2/MX. I used this guide: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=98456&highlight= and it works quite well, but is there another way to have the 2nd screen as an actual extension of the desktop? so I can move programs and maximise them etc? this would be quit helpfull since I can hardly read any text and stuff on my tv
rljso does anyone know how to trace what process is actually calling hal (through kde's media manager i believe) to mount the external device?
tried dbus-monitor on the system bus but to no avail
fdovingrlj: what do you want to know? mediamanager is a kded module, it is responsible for such things.
rljfdoving: i want to know why mediamanager (or something else through kde's interfaces) automounts everything i insert after i close the popup, even if i tell it "do nothing" or hit cancel in the dialog. (it should only mount if i do "open in new window" or similar)
c0nv1ctrlj: that is asking you 'what to do' with the new mount, not whether or not to mount it
Moltovstdin: As in refered to as hda1? or...?
stdinMoltov: on linux, it's called /dev/hda1 (for the 1st primary partition of the 1st master drive)
Moltovstdin: ^.^' i use gparted for such things nowadays, so that is indeed what it refers to it as.
dromersomeone told me to try xinerama, but this doesn't work at all

ubotuPrinting in Ubuntu is done with cups. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Printers - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsPrinters - http://linuxprinting.org - Printer sharing: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NetworkPrintingFromWindows
stdinMoltov: so, it on the 1st partition then, good :)

ubotuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ARTS is running, by going to K Menu -> System Settings -> Sound System and making sure "Enable the sound system" is checked. If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP3
Silveira_NetoI broke all my apt-get and Adept, I have to confess that I modified the /etc/apt/source.list, where can I find an original source.list for Kubuntu 6.10? This would solve my problem?
stdinMoltov: it's quite simple to add windows to grub if it's not detecting it
Moltovstdin: Well, its not detecting it, and its on hda3 ^.^' which is probobly why.
stdinSilveira_Neto: /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list is a good one

ubotuYum!
stdinMoltov: ahh, than you need to have it on hda1 ( I think, I don't have windows ), I think there is a way to "trick" it tho
dromer~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
sorry

ubotuLinux is the kernel (core) of the Ubuntu operating system. Many operating systems use Linux as kernel. For more information on Linux in general, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux
dromerhehe
Moltovstdin: I think ive herd that too, though i also imagine theres a way to swap hda1(currently kubuntu) and hda3 around...
iamsam9895Is 53 degrees celcius too hot for a processor?
