[00:43:28] <Kano>	hi
[00:43:55] <Kano>	https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hal/+bug/528907
[00:44:03] <Kano>	that bug is in the debian kde version too
[00:44:11] <Kano>	could somebody use the u bugfix?
[00:44:44] <Kano>	kubuntu_06_user_disk_mounting.diff
[00:46:33] <pinotree>	i guess your user is part of the plugdev group, already?
[00:48:02] <Kano>	the problem is not usb
[00:48:28] <Kano>	but when you have got a policykit config like used in live mode
[00:48:47] <Kano>	then you should be able to mount the devices with a mouseclick in dolpin
[00:48:51] <Kano>	it works in gnome
[00:49:06] <Kano>	i even dl the squeeze gnome live to compare it
[00:50:00] <Kano>	it does not work in my own iso nor in the kde default live
[00:50:50] <Kano>	scripts/config/111-policykit in live-config package writes the config
[00:51:01] <Kano>	if you want to look what is written without dl the image
[00:51:38] <Kano>	basically the used user is granted all rights
[00:53:56] <Kano>	it was fixed in kdelibs
[00:57:04] <devil>	hi Kano 
[00:57:09] <Kano>	hi devil 
[00:58:58] <Kano>	the patch would basically still apply
[01:06:32] <Kano>	devil: did you notice that problem too?
[01:07:20] <devil>	Kano: in 4.4.x yes
[01:07:22] Join	nkem_bruno has joined this channel (~marco@host241-48-dynamic.58-82-
[01:07:54] <Kano>	no solution found?
[01:08:11] <devil>	nope, but not much time at my hands atm
[01:10:40] <Kano>	always look at (k)ubuntu then ;)
[01:11:29] Quit	tarniak has left this server (Remote host closed the connection).
[01:13:29] <MoDaX>	Kano: the problem is hal is not compat with polkit-1 iirc
[01:13:33] <s_20>	will this gtk oxygen theme that has been blogged about recently make its way to 
[01:13:45] <MoDaX>	which debian kde 4.4 uses 
[01:13:45] <Kano>	MoDaX: look at the patch, they directly call dbus
[01:15:00] Quit	Unmensch has left this server (Quit: Konversation terminated!).
[01:15:12] Join	Unmensch has joined this channel (~steven@p4FCDFC39.dip.t-dialin.net).
[01:15:49] <MoDaX>	Kano: unless you give me a link to the patch, I won't find it. I find launchpad 
unusable basically
[01:16:34] <Kano>	http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kde4libs/kde4libs_4.4.2-0ubuntu4.dsc
[01:16:39] <Kano>	enough?
[01:16:56] <MoDaX>	:) too much work
[01:16:57] Quit	davi has left this server (Ping timeout: 480 seconds).
[01:17:02] <Kano>	dget
[01:18:10] <MoDaX>	I would rather google patch name
[01:18:30] <dileks>	the mentionned patch is not attached to the BR
[01:18:47] <Kano>	correct, it is in the package itself
[01:19:59] <pinotree>	s_20: no, it won't
[01:20:35] <s_20>	pinotree: oh? :(
[01:20:47] <s_20>	howcome?
[01:20:48] <pinotree>	s_20: debian is frozen since august
[01:21:14] <s_20>	let me rephrase that, will it make its way into debian eventually?
[01:21:16] <pinotree>	after squeeze, if somebody package it, yes
[01:22:14] <MoDaX>	http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~kubuntu-
[01:22:23] <MoDaX>	whatever, it's ugly and needs sudo
[01:22:44] <MoDaX>	s/sudo/kdesu/
[01:22:55] Join	vizor has joined this channel (~vizor@
[01:23:11] <Kano>	but it works
[01:23:12] <pinotree>	and it makes libsolid dependent on kdecore
[01:23:53] <Kano>	that is better, a live cd that can mount hds directly or you have to tell em to 
use kdesu dolphin?
[01:25:31] <MoDaX>	Kano: get a green light from RT, then we could talk
[01:25:42] <Kano>	rt?
[01:25:52] <MoDaX>	release team
[01:26:22] <Kano>	how?
[01:27:05] <MoDaX>	that's a good question because this bug is not RC no matter how you put it. and 
debian is in super deep freeze mode atm
[01:27:53] <Kano>	because it was not reported?
[01:29:30] <MoDaX>	Kano: RC = release critical
[01:30:12] <Kano>	then is the release?
[01:30:14] <Kano>	w
[01:31:05] <Kano>	my guess: still far away ;)
[01:31:21] <MoDaX>	when it's ready, but might be rather soon. /etc/debian_version already has 6.0 
[01:31:50] <Kano>	well then put in into an update later
[01:32:16] <MoDaX>	the patch is not clean
[01:33:24] <MoDaX>	RT definitely won't accept anything that has pathname hardcoded. that just looks 
wrong at the first sight
[01:34:00] <pinotree>	the bit that changes CMakeLists.txt is just wrong
[01:34:22] <pinotree>	i18n() is a no-go in libsolid, QObject::tr() must be used instead
[01:34:57] <Kano>	well you can certainly optimize it
[01:35:32] <PovAddict>	would upstream accept such a change?
[01:35:45] <pinotree>	PovAddict: as is it that way, no
[01:36:15] <pinotree>	and given that there's no more hal usage in the upcoming kde 4.6, i'd say 
"even less, even if the patch would be clean"
