|DSlicer||Bleh, is there a global setting to remember window size and position? Turning it on for each app is getting annoying|
|redstickham||I had to use a package manager called Automatix to get Java on there, http://www.getautomatix.com|
I've heard horrible things about Automatix.
Supposedly it installs packages in a really incompatible way and it can cause severe problems when you try to upgrade your distro.
Dunno if it's true, but I've heard it many, many, times.
|specialbuddy||so is there anyway to get it working?|
|jarn||Where are the debs stored that apt downloads?|
|jtt||DSlicer, did i answer your last question|
|jtt||DSlicer, guess i dit|
|peaker||why oh why is launchpad down?|
can't they do maintainence without downtime?
|DSlicer||jtt- yup. KControl isn't in the menu by default|
|jtt||dsl probably best to leave it out now that you know about it|

|redstickham||I'm getting used to Adept though, I used Synaptic on my last few distros|
|asnoman||Hello guys :D|
|dsmith_||ok I just downloaded fiesty, off to running the ISO in vmware|
|asnoman||Hehehe (Picked it up last night)|
Wanted to give Kubuntu a try :/
|dsmith_||jarn: i never had any problems with automatix|
|asnoman||Anyone know much about raid configurations and kubuntu.|
|ubotu||Automatix2 is a proprietary script that tries to install some software, and often fails and breaks systems. We don't provide support for it, and we strongly discourage its use. Problems caused by Automatix are often hard to track and solve, and it might sometimes be easier to !install a fresh copy of Ubuntu. See also !WorksForMe|
|dsmith_||asnoman: Use 3ware|
|dsmith_||i have two P3 machines running kubuntu at work on a raid 1|
|redstickham||one thing Linux has going against it is there is no easy way to install software that isn't in the repositories|
|asnoman||Cool, I have a amd64, w/ raid 0|
