mystupidnickim trying "apt-get purge emacsen-common" which results in a unmet dependencies problem: kdelibs5-plugins depends of: libenchant1c2a (>= 1.6.0)00:29
mystupidnickany idea how i can resolve that problem or debug the cause of it?00:29
daftykinsyou had other crap going on; "sudo dpkg -r emacsen-common" would probably ignore your other problems00:30
daftykinsbut really you should just fix those00:30
k1lyes, that sounds more like there is another (maybe old) depency error still there00:30
mystupidnickdaftykins: i've already tried apt-get -f install, apt-get autoclean, dpkg --reconfigure -a which is what i can think of00:31

daftykinsno need to reinstall01:14
Gallomimia2that doesn't work out at all. there's no "recovery" option in this case01:14

Gallomimia2so some suggestions on that process would be welcome.01:15
Gallomimia2yeah that'd be great. any suggestions on how to see grub?01:15
daftykinsit's hidden as default, so you'd need to hold left shift after selecting ubuntu, depends if you've used rEFInd or just using the hold-alt-after-chime method01:15

=== Hobbyboy|BNC is now known as Hobbyboy
JoralOerHeks, was simply pointing out that virtualbox on my windows install was able to detect and use amd-v which makes me think that the issue is in my current configuration and not bios.02:56
OerHeksJoral, jups, else windows could not detect it, so no bios issue/upgrade needed02:57
OerHeksi have no clue, find no simular bugs02:57
JoralOerHeks, I followed the steps in that link and it says that if I get the result that it gave me then the cpu does not support svm, but according to the wiki amd-v is amd's implementation of svm and my proc supports amd-v so it should work but its not.02:59
JoralOerHeks, the only other thing I can think is that xen is not passing the cpu flags to dom0 properly but that seems like a doubtful longshot given the popularity of amd cpus for virtualization03:02

imthenachomanhey guys. so i am installing ubuntu on my personal/home media server. it'll have plex home theather and owncloud running on it. i'm tossed on which one to use. i know 14.04 LTS it the recommended but then 16.04 comes out soon and i'm wondering how easy it'll be to upgrade from 14.04 vs 15.1005:03
SlidingHornimthenachoman, typically, LTS releases are made to roll from one to the next05:04
k1lfrom 14.04 to 15.10 is not that easy. . but you can go from 14.04 to 16.04 on the LTS upgrade once 16.04.1 is released.05:06
k1lso either you install 15.10 now and make the upgrade to 16.04, or you install 14.04 and make the LTS upgrade later.05:07

pineapple1Hi trying to write a bash script and using $$ pid. Not sure how to run the script so I get the same $$ value each time I run it11:09
l7lhi, could someone give me a hint on how to install a server, where multiple users can connect via rdp and login to their -individual- workspace? Has anyone experiences on  how to dimension such a server memory/cpu wise? thanks in advance11:09
cliGeezermiroesq: when you see the list of wifi networks, did you see where it says more networks right below..there will be more in the list11:11
miroesqcliGeezer: didn't see that, but i will look at it again. thank you11:14
akikl7l: i recommend x2go for that use case11:17
l7lakik: many thanks! do you have experience with that?11:19
l7lakik: like memory usage for each connection?11:19
akikl7l: it depends on the desktop environment you are using11:20
akikl7l: for kde, i think it was something like 300-400 megabytes per connection11:20
l7lakik: ah ok, great11:21
akikl7l: x2go uses only ssh for connectivity and you can use ssh keys for authentication11:21
l7lakik: as it is a research environment for non cs-students, i thought about using http://guac-dev.org/11:22
akikl7l: did you try that already?11:23
l7lno but i will have a look at it11:23
l7li just dont have any experiences on how to dimension the system specification11:24
l7lakik: and it looks pretty easy to use on the client side11:25
miroesqcliGeezer: I don't have a button that says more. this is ubuntu 14, but it is running on an armv7 machine11:30
OerHeksmiroesq, you should have, "more networks"11:33
miroesqcliGeezer: I can pastebin a pic. I have a little icon of a wall socket and a wire coming out of it on the bottom right of my desktop. when i click on it, i see my wired connection, one wireless network, an option to connect to hidden wi-fi networks, option to create new wifi network and vpn connections, that's it11:35

Dorfen`Hello guys! I'm using ubuntu gnome, with the default Terminal app comming with gnome. I would like the title bar to show the hostname of the server I am ssh'ed into at the moment, but I can't seem to make it work. So far I've tried modifying .bashrc to include the {TITLEBAR} stuff with no luck, is it not possible in the default app? Or am I just severely retarded from sleep deprivation?15:44
lotuspsychjeLiv: are you sure the fan stopped, and not blowing low?15:45

motaka2k1l: I lost access to my desktop so I want to upgrade using ssh but thats the error it gives15:53
Liright now I'm still able to switch between those two languages, which causes me to forget to switch back to english every time I want to login or use browser15:53

TJ-motaka2: busy16:10
motaka2donkarlo@mohammad-desktop:~$ dpkg --print-architecture16:10

TJ-k1l: also, the single hard disk came from another PC with different hardware. It was using Nvidia fakeRAID so the root file-system is (correctly) detected as being on a /dev/mapper/nvidia_xxxxx node, although this hardware has no fakeRAID controller. So, it has /dev/sda and /dev/mapper/nvidia_xxxxx both pointing to the same partitions.16:13

k1lmotaka2: i think your system is in a very bad state and making it work again is more work then macking backup of the important data, load a new 14.04.iso and make a new install16:25
TJ-motaka2: it'll save you hours, or days! As I and others said on Saturday, if the dist-upgrade doesn't work then you'll need to back-up your user data (all users home directories), configuration files, and any manually-installed software16:25
motaka2k1l: If TJ- says I will do that, since I dont have any utilty to back up16:25
ioriamotaka2, if you run sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.13.0-68-generic  ?16:26

ioriamotaka2, sudo apt-get update17:19
TJ-motaka2: 'nothing is done' suggests the back-up command ioria gave you didn't get done.17:19
TJ-ioria: don't we want the sources.list now be pointing to 12.04, not 14.04?17:20
motaka2TJ-: I meant the request was not complete when I hit enter the new line started with >17:20
ioriaTJ- no upgrade then ?17:20
TJ-motaka2: oh!! that means you failed to close a quotation mark or similar17:20
TJ-ioria: Well, the versions of apt/apt-utils at least are still 12.0417:20
ioriamotaka2, how is going with apt-get update ?17:21
TJ-ioria:  I was looking for a sure fire way t check the *excutables* of debconf/dpkg are also 12.04 - if that is the case we can probably just reset sources.list to precise17:21
motaka2TJ-: wait ...17:21
manornkI create bash script that uses SUDO, and i want that it automaticlly after terminal requests password gives password to it.. how can i do this?17:21
ioriaTJ- oh, yeah17:21
TJ-ioria: it is possible the release-upgrade aborted immediately after changing the sources.list17:22
TJ-motaka2: can you hold on for a few moments please?17:22
ioriaTJ- ok17:22
TJ-motaka2: if you missed a quotation mark (causing the > prompt on a new line) just type another matching quotation mark and press Enter17:23
zykotick9manornk: under normal circumstances, i'd just run the script with sudo - rather then trying to embed it... YMMV.  Good luck.17:23
TJ-ioria: I'm thinking the sources.list got changed but apt failed due to what we saw earlier - that dl.google.com entry17:23
codephobicI have an old version of nodejs (v0.12) installed via github, on my ubuntu server. I am looking to upgrade to v5.1, but I was wondering if just downloading the tar.gz and running through configure and make and make install, would cause issues because of this older version?17:23
manornkzykotick9: thanks, i didn't think of it :D17:23
TJ-motaka2: can you do "pastebinit <( ls -latr /etc/apt/ )" please17:24
ioriaTJ-  usually that it's not a problem  ... it'a about chrome17:24
codephobicis there a more advisable method to installing the latest nodejs, say perhaps some git pull request or something?17:24
R13oseI am trying to create a bootable usb key that allows me to run Damn Small Linux but each time I try, this says "Missing Operating System." How do I fix this?17:24
TJ-ioria: right, something else happened to delete dpkg's architecture file, and the failure of debconf to find apt-extracttemplates17:25
TJ-ioria: either those packages got a partial upgrade and then it failed, or we have a complete precise system with no trusty intermingled, but some core config files got broken somehow17:26
ioriaTJ- yep17:26
TJ-ioria: if the release-upgrade broke the file listing for /etc/apt/ might show the original back-up and timestamps to clue us in a bit nore17:26
ioriaTJ-  i hope so...17:27
TJ-ioria: I'm wondering how /var/lib/dpkg/arch got deleted though; that is either failing disk (no sign of that in the kernel logs) or something misbehaved badly.17:27
ioriaTJ-  yes, weird ...17:28

faheemazizmHi macbook air 2013 mid year model, issues installing broadcom drivers, Ubuntu 14.04.317:31
TJ-motaka2: ioria that call to apt-extracttemplates is in /usr/sbin/dpkg-preconfigure17:33
TJ-Perl script: ... if (system("apt-extracttemplates", @collect) != 0) { print STDERR sprintf("debconf: ".gettext("apt-extracttemplates failed: %s")."\n",$!);17:34
faheemazizmHi macbook air 2013 mid year model, issues installing broadcom drivers, Ubuntu 14.04.317:34
tewardfaheemazizm: that's not vague at all, what've you tried so far, what errors do you get, etc.17:35
faheemazizmok just got it17:35
TJ-so, it is relying on a root PATH that has /usr/sbin/ - so a bad  /etc/environment could cause that17:35
faheemazizmteward, solved17:35
TJ-motaka2: can you "pastebinit /etc/environment"17:36
TJ-motaka2: the other possibility is that /usr/bin/apt-extracttemplates is not executable17:38

jwashhi everyone, i get ECONNREFUSED for vsftpd outside my local network, and it works fine on the internal network. Can someone help me troubleshoot?17:40

crisedIs it possible to use dd to burn windows 10 iso to usb in ubuntu 15.10?17:41
MonkeyDustjwash  oh, not only irc?17:41
jwashMonkeyDust: ??? vsftpd17:41
MonkeyDustjwash  i was too fast, apologies17:41
crisedI mean, I did it but my pc does not boot from usb drive17:42
tewardjwash: CONNREFUSED outside the network sounds like there's NAT or a router between the outside and the system17:42
tewardjwash: so you'd need to make sure the port forwards are done correctly (aka NAT rules)17:42
jwashother services route fine17:42
TJ-MonkeyDust: ioria testing here, if /usr/bin/apt-extracttemplates is NOT executable debconf reports "debconf: Delaying package configuration, since apt-utils is not installed." ... so it isn't that, and as motaka2 system gets past that check it also means the file should execute - which points to some failure maybe a segfault17:42
jwashthat's what's weird17:42
ioriaTJ-  ok, but the guy fainted :þ17:43
TJ-ioria: carted off by the Windows police :)17:43
MonkeyDusthe started attacking freenode17:43
ioriaTJ-  probably17:43
ioriai had to change the server ip, to connect17:44

TJ-MonkeyDust: right... it's all IRC's fault for complete strangers giving random instructions :)17:44
Liis there a way to make gedit keep a copy of unsaved documents to recover after accidental shutdown?17:44
TJ-Li: It may already do that - look for files of the same name with a ~ suffix17:45
TJ-Li: as in somefile.txt and somefile.txt~17:45
TJ-Li: there used to be a setting to enable back-ups I recall, but not used it ages so not sure what the default behaviour is now17:45
LiTJ-: the backup option is there in the preferences tab works fine with files that I've previous saved copy from17:51
Libut if I have an unsaved document I can't find it after reboot17:51
LiI tried to sudo find . -iname "Untiteled Document*" -type f17:52
Linothing there!17:52
TJ-motaka2: ioria I've been reading the apt-extracttemplates source; unhelfully if collects up all errors until the end and just dumps the messages so not useful. We'd need to run the apt-get install under control of 'strace -f ...' to find out what more is broken. From the source I suspect the apt pkg cache, which would be easy to fix.17:54
ioriaTJ-  could work17:56
motaka2ioria: TJ- sorry boss is on the phone17:56
ioriaTJ-  he's back17:56
TJ-motaka2: I have to leave now, but hopefully you can follow-up on what I've written. I *think* you should return /etc/apt/sources.list to point to the 12.04 precise archives, delete all the existing cached apt package info under /var/cache/apt/ (someone can tell you the specifics of what and how to do that) and then do "sudo apt-get update" to fetch the precise package lists in.18:05
TJ-motaka2: I *suspect* the situation is that the tools are 12.04, trying to read data that has come from 14.04 which those tools don't understand, and thus 'apt-extracttemplates' is failing because it doesn't understand the data format.18:06
ioriaTJ-  so reverse all to 12.04 ?18:06
boxmeincan I do something to the unity panel so wine tray icons would appear on it?18:07
motaka2ioria: sorry I was away18:13
motaka2ioria: sudo apt-get update  done successfully18:13
motaka2what is next ?18:13
ioriamotaka2, well, we have a problem on how to proceed18:14
ioriamotaka2, maybe come back to 12.04 or trying a new upgrade to 1418:14
ioriamotaka2, i gave you another file, btw18:15

motaka3ioria: yes18:20
motaka3ioria: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13580765/18:21
ioriamotaka3, ok , so, the point is: we don't know how many packages has been upgraded to 14.04 ....18:21
ioriamotaka3, and how many are still 12.0418:21
kazdaxis ubuntu a good way to learn linux ?18:21
motaka3ioria: dist-upgrade wont take them all to 14.04 ?18:21
kazdaxi dont really know what i want to do with linux18:22
kazdaxbut i just want to start somewhere..setting up , maybe doing projects i like18:22
kazdaxlike my own webserver18:22
kazdaxor ftp server18:22
motaka3kazdax: Yes it is good for newbies18:22
kazdaxmaybe even a database server and do some programming with it18:22
ioriamotaka3, is what i think .... but it's not the regular way to do a release-upgrade18:22
kazdaxI have had a few problems previously with ubuntu tho18:22
kazdaxlike for example one was not being able to watch youtuve18:22
kazdaxi think the solution for that was to enable hmtl 5 or download chrome18:23
motaka3ioria: if you say I will do it. At mot I will lose data right ?18:23
kazdaxthen another thing was internet speed was slower on ubuntu18:23

kazdaxright but what would you guys firstly use a linux for18:23
kazdaxor have a project for a linux to learn18:23
kazdaxsomething to gear you towards ..you know like a aim to reach when learning it18:24
ioriamotaka3, we cannot downgrade ....18:24
kazdaxbecause i bet its a wide subject ..you can do alot on it18:24
motaka3ioria: so the only way is sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade18:24
motaka3ioria: or you wait for TJ- point of view?18:24
ioriamotaka3, the second18:24
motaka3ioria: :( ok I will wait18:25
TJ-motaka3: ok, the file listing confirms there's a backup from before the upgrade "3043 Nov 21 21:10 sources.list.distUpgrade"18:25
motaka3TJ-: :)18:25
TJ-motaka3: I'm in-and-out, preparing a meal here, so bear with me. "pastebinit /etc/apt/sources.list.distUpgrade"18:26
motaka3TJ-: is that a good news?18:26
motaka3TJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13580876/18:26

paulbxsokoll, jump in, ask your question, if somebody can help they will18:34
sokollpaulbx: ok, thanks. was just making it clear I can't ask on #httpd before asking.18:34
motaka3TJ-: seems busy, by the way I am doing all this in putty18:34
wintermoonit didn't boot whatsoever after installing, same Windows booting screen as before18:34
TJ-motaka3: that's fine :)18:34
motaka3TJ-: I love linux, it is so customizable. I am learning ...18:35
TJ-motaka3: as long as the package system thinks the system should be on 12.04, and now it knows the i386 architecture again, we should be able, over that SSH link, to fix (repace with 12.04)  any 14.04 Trusty packages that got on there18:35
wintermoonI've already pasted my drives list: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13580895/18:35
Bashing-omwintermoon: Then we are looking at installing grub ( 'buntu boot loader ) to that 2nd hard drive ?18:35
TJ-motaka3: As I said, I'm cooking here so there may be extended delays from me18:36
motaka3TJ-: does linux care how many users working on it at the same time?18:36
wintermoonwould that get rid of the Windows boot as well???18:36
motaka3TJ-: No problem, if you had time tell us what you were cooking18:36
Bashing-omwintermoon: NO, will not effect the Windows on the other 2 drives . Reconfirm however that you are booting that 2md hard drive and ubuntu does not boot .18:37
TJ-motaka3: no it doesn't care, as long as it has resources to cope18:38
TJ-motaka3: tell me if/when that "apt-get update" has completed18:39
wintermoonapparently there's no boot from the 2nd drive (sdb) because I only see the Windows boot screen when starting the PC18:39

Bashing-omwintermoon: Great .. we install grub to the 2nd hard drive. ' sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt ; sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt /dev/sdb ; sudo umount /mnt ' . Reboot into the install - boot priority set to the 2nd hard drive ) and once booted into ubuntu run ' sudo update-grub ' to pick up and chainload Windows to it's boot menu .18:46
Bashing-omwintermoon: You are aware that you have a unorthodox install of ubuntu on the 2nd hard drive ?18:47

EriC^^hey lotuspsychje19:44
wintermoonBashing-om :(19:44
codelionHello, I have an offline mirror of the ubuntu repositories which my machine can access, trying to install from a USB disk but it is not detecting that it can download updates while installing, therefor disallowing the upgrade option for the installer, is there a way around this19:44
Bashing-omwintermoon: As you want .. we can mess about ... but I assure you at this point it will be much faster to do a fresh clean (RE-)install .19:45
wintermoonBashing-om I see but I don't see the difference expect doing a correct drive partition, could that fix the issue? In that case what are the steps for a correct partitioning?19:46
Bashing-omwintermoon: What experience do you have with linux ? If all new .. I do recommend that in the install procedure that you choose " erase disk and install ubuntu" let the install wizard take care of everything but the personal detaols .19:47
wintermoonBashing-om I thought that option would erase all my drives :D19:48
Bashing-omwintermoon: Nope .. only the target drive / BUT make sure of what the target drive is identified as !19:48
wintermoonBashing-om yeah, my bad then19:49
wintermoonBashing-om I have a few more questions but BRB19:49
Bashing-omwintermoon: No, not bad at all .. it is that process of learning .19:49
codelionAnybody know if there's a way to force the ubuntu installer to recognize an offline mirror?19:49
codelionIt won't let me select "upgrade from X to X" because its detecting that it is offline19:50
kazdaxis there a room for video editing ?19:50
akikhack_: if my memory serves me well, you can do it with the JAVA_HOME env variable19:50

codelionhack_: you need to set JAVA_HOME and ANDROID_JAVA_HOME19:50
codelionhack_: also, you'll want to make sure your path makes javac, etc the right binary19:51
codeliondo 'which javac' to confirm, for example19:51
hack_codelion: are those global variables or are they local to a lauched application instance?19:51
codelionthey're environment variables19:52
codelionso like, export JAVA_HOME=/path/to/your/jdk19:52
akikcodelion: what does ANDROID_JAVA_HOME declare?19:53
codelionakik: I think actually that one is for AOSP, nevermind. just JAVA_HOME. hack_19:53
codelionmy bad19:53
TJ-motaka3: My analyse reports there are 152 packages on that system that aren't the expected 12.04 Precise versions. That suggests it won't be possible to return it to a pure 12.04 state. That means trying to fix errors as they occur in getting it into a stable 14.04 Trusty state, or wipe it and do a clean installation.19:55
TJ-motaka3: this is the summary of differences: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13582462/19:55
hack_Ok thanks, just wanted to make sure if I started something (or if something else started automatically) that uses java it wouldn't suddenly be running on Oracle19:56
ioriaTJ- there should be a tool to reverse a broken release-upgrade... don't you think ?19:56
TJ-ioria: not possible; release-upgrades run hand-tuned .prerm/.preinst/.postinst scripts . The only way would be using file-system snapshots with LVM etc19:57
Paradisee_hello guys, i just bought a hd to use as secondary (backup files) on ubuntu, but i cannot use it, how could i make it work?19:57
TJ-ioria: I think my awk script wasn't entirely accurate in matching package names, but it'll do :)19:58
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: define 'cannot use it'?19:58
ioriaTJ-  :þ  i read once something about a "restore point" in linux ....19:58
lotuspsychjeioria: fix broken packages from recoverymode?19:59
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: basically when i plug the hd it wasnt displayed, doing fdisk -l it was there..19:59
TJ-ioria: "apache2 FOUND: 2.2.22-1ubuntu1.10 EXPECTED: 4.3.9-13ubuntu3" looks a bit weird19:59
TJ-ioria: yeah, I've been working on such a thing19:59
iorialotuspsychje, hi Lotus... no, an app19:59
Paradisee_now i used gparted to make a partiion on it but i cannot copy nothing in it...19:59
ioriaTJ-  really ?19:59
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: try to format your hd with gparted19:59
motaka3TJ-: This cant get me 14.04 upgrade?  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade19:59
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: i cannot format it...dunno why..20:00
ioriamotaka3, with a proper sources.list ....20:00
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: did you gksu gparted?20:00
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: what does that mean20:00
wintermoonBashing-om hey, I'm reinstalling :), one more question, does Grub gets rid of Windows' boot??? I can imagine myself selecting a windows OS in Grub and then booting right on Windows previous dual-boot20:00
=== jakemp- is now known as jakemp
motaka3ioria: ?20:00
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: how did you start gparted?20:00
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: sudo gparted20:00
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: gksu gparted instead20:01
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: same..20:01
ioriamotaka3, now, you should have  the pangoline sources.list... you need to restore the file i send you20:01
TJ-motaka3: that's where we need to take it, so the previous step we did to return the system to the 12.04 Precise ap sources.list needs to be undone so that file again points to the trusty 14.04 archives20:01
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: what format was your hd by default? ntfs? fat32?20:01
HeisenbergsDogor kdesudo :P20:01

Paradisee_lotuspsychje: it's ext420:01

lotuspsychjeParadisee_: try formatting as ntfs, as a test20:02
motaka3TJ-: ioria Can you tell me how?20:02
Bashing-omParadisee_: cli way : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingANewHardDrive .20:02
Paradisee_i cannot format it.20:02
Paradisee_the type is in grey.20:02
codelionthis is really frustrating...20:02
Paradisee_that means i cannot click on it.20:02
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: hmm gparted that cant format a drive?20:03
ioriamotaka3, we can try a new upgrade to 14.0420:03
Bashing-omwintermoon: Grub will over-write existing boot code on the selected device only . On a hard drive there can be only one boot code !20:03
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: you sure you selected the right hd on right upper corner?20:03
Paradisee_how do i see all the hd on my machine?20:03
TJ-motaka3: hang on, just looking at your files list20:03
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: ofc.20:03
motaka3TJ-: ioria ok waiting ...20:03
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: check fdisk -l20:04
TJ-motaka3: do you get results from this: "grep 'trusty' /etc/apt/sources.list.bak" ?20:04
Paradisee_doesn't show nothing.20:04
codelionDoes anyone know how the ubuntu installer determines if you are offline? Is it a generate 204 check perhaps?20:04
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: what kind of hd is this?20:04
Paradisee_bw black 1 TB20:05
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: usb?20:05
motaka3TJ-: Yes I do20:05
TJ-codelion: the Ubiquity GUI installer, or the underlying text-mode debian-installer?20:05
Paradisee_*WD sata20:05
TJ-motaka3: "pastebinit /etc/apt/sources.list.bak"20:05
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: wd black sata hd, connected to sata motherboard internal?20:05
codelionTJ-:  the gui installer. I am not familiar with the underlying text mode installer20:05
Paradisee_yes ?20:05
motaka3TJ-: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13582643/20:05
TJ-codelion: Ubiquity uses d-i under-the-hood, so I think it may defer to d-i to discover online state20:06
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: check your syslog and dmesg perhaps20:06
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: /var/log/...20:06
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: http://paste.ubuntu.com/13582668/20:07
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: you connected the hd yourself internal? cables all good? bios setup right?20:07
codelionTJ-:  do you have any suggestions as to getting Ubiquity to work with an offline mirror of the ubuntu repositories? I have access to archive.ubuntu.com and its a very thourough mirror20:07
goddardlotuspsychje: i was wonder if an existing application existed that could help me manage applications ability to do things on my system.20:07
Paradisee_http://paste.ubuntu.com/13582672/ lotuspsychje20:07
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: i supose.20:07
TJ-motaka3: OK, that file looks fine to use: "sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list.bak /etc/apt/sources.list"  then do "sudo find /var/lib/apt/lists -type f -delete"  then fetch the 14.04 lists with "sudo apt-get update"20:07
Paradisee_lotuspsychje: going to restart one sec20:08
TJ-codelion: I usually do it via an apt proxy. It can be set in a preseed file or on the kernel command-line, I seem to recall.20:09
motaka3donkarlo@mohammad-desktop:~$ sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list.bak /etc/apt/sources.list" then do "sudo find /var/lib/apt/lists -type f -delete20:09

motaka3Tj ok20:10
motaka3TJ-: is updating ...20:11
Smnguys, I'm using ubuntu 15.10 64 bits, for some reason new applications aren't getting added to the dash even though I can open them from alt f2 and the terminal20:11
wintermoonBashing-om just reinstalled, now it won't even boot to Grub prompt :( it shows the cursor on top left20:12
Paradisee_ok, i formatted the hd in ext420:12
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: i see you have samsung ssd also, did you enable AHCI in bios?20:12
Paradisee_i have no idea.20:12
Paradisee_that is my ssd for the os20:12
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: did you firmware upgrade your ssd?20:12
Paradisee_i did not.20:12
Paradisee_or at least not me.20:12
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: evo 840 needs firmware upgrade to write performance20:13
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: its reccomended you do this and reformat ubuntu20:13
ioriaSmn,  there is an entry for them in /usr/share/applications ?20:13
Paradisee_but we're talking about another hd20:13
TJ-codelion: you could use a "preseed/url" to provide the installer with a preseed file, which specificies your local apt archive20:13
Paradisee_not the ssd20:13
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: also set bios from IDE to AHCI20:13
mikaandrefirmware ??? waths20:13
codelionTJ-: I'm trying to look into your suggestion, but a few things: The mirror is at the same URL it should expect if its online, so I dont need to redirect it. 2: can you link to a guide to do what you are suggesting?20:13
motaka3TJ-: done20:14
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: so you formatted your drive..20:14
Paradisee_i formatted the second one. the hd not the ssd20:14
Smnioria,  there actually is20:14
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: how did you solve it20:14
Paradisee_changed the sata plug20:14
Paradisee_i plug'd it on the ssd one.20:15
ioriaSmn,  Super-key (Windows key) and type the name20:15
TJ-codelion: oh, if the local network is resolving the archive.ubuntu.com FQDN to a local host, then it should work. Maybe there's a call to some other server, like the one containing the release-upgrade files. run a tcpdump sniff on it to find out20:15
Smnthat's how I normally launch my applications20:15
HelppleaseeeeeeI'm in desperate need of some help20:15

TheEagerPadawanhi guys, i got some experience with linux and i would like to achieve my first cert - i am wondering what would be a good one to start off with and what resources i should check - i found theurbanpinguin is he still valid?20:16
TJ-motaka3: ioria OK, this is where it gets 'interesting'. If you get any errors from commmands, pastebin the results and we'll investigate/fix each. "sudo apt-get -f install"20:16
ioriaSmn,  i mean, which application does not show ?20:16
Paradisee_i should be able to write on it.20:16

shaun__hi guys my /usr/local is only 239MB its entirely too small and now i cant install anything cause ive run out of space how do i increase the space20:21

ioriaTJ- he can try that , if fails  upgrade && release-upgrade (risky but fixable)20:22

TJ-TheEagerPadawan: cut your teeth helping in channels like this :)20:26
Bashing-omwintermoon: So ? Did the actual install to sdb complete ? Have you tried booting - set in bios to boot the 2nd hard drive as 1st boot priority ) ?20:26
ioriamotaka3,  no20:27
motaka3ioria: :D TJ- is great20:27
ioriamotaka3,  absolutly20:27
lotuspsychjegoddard: is apparmor what you looking for?20:27
TJ-motaka3: no, we were considering how the upgrade could see the 14.04 files there and think it was expected to upgrade from those to a later version :D20:27
wintermoonBashing-om yep, 2nd drive is still 1st priority, and I have just reinstalled again on that same drive with the Wizard managing the partitions20:27
TheEagerPadawanTJ-: system administration would be interesting for me20:27
TJ-motaka3: because we still don't know exactly how the system got so broken, or what else is lying in wait for us20:27
wintermoonBashing-om, but I don't even see the Grub prompt right now if I reboot20:28
Bashing-omwintermoon: Great, so what results when booting the install ?20:28
motaka3TJ-: I hope every thing goes fine. IN the city where I live  internet interrupts so much. Would it be trouble some for the upgrade?20:28
TJ-TheEagerPadawan: you can learn alot about the things that go wrong, and how to fix then, in channels like this and #ubuntu-server, and ##linux, as well as playing about yourself with virtual machines20:28

jhutchinsTheEagerPadawan: http://tldp.org20:29
Smnwhich I've done before20:29
TJ-motaka3: it could be, but the release-upgrader is supposed to cope with such things. bad connectivity wouldn't explain how /var/lib/dpkg/arch got deleted - release-upgrade would never delete that file20:29
Bashing-omwintermoon: A thought .. even though I see no idication of GPT , is this an UEFI system ?20:29
motaka3TJ-: ok then20:30
wintermoonBashing-om, besides that, the screen flickers each second or so... Sorry I don't know what UEFI means20:30
TheEagerPadawanjhutchins: i ain't looking this as a hobby project, i'm serious regarding getting in the workfield and i need to be able to show my experience they only way you can do this is with a cert these days20:30
ioriaSmn,  did you tweak System Settings -> Security & Privacy ?20:30
SmnI should bring more info, a few days ago(I already had the problem)someone recommended to deleted the cache, I did logetd out and in and the applications up to that point all showed, but when I installed new applications they didn't appear20:30
Smnno, I haven't even entered that part of the settings20:30
motaka3TJ-: it says it will take 11 hours :D20:30
TJ-motaka3: Time for bed :D20:31
Smnso the problem is along the lines of dash not chekcing for th enew files20:31
ioriamotaka3,  come on ....20:31
Smnand only doing so when its cache is manually deleted20:31
motaka3TJ-: Yea I have to drive home20:31

codephobicanyone here use #yeoman or ##webdev? Are these channels dead or is there a network split or something happening?20:32
motaka3TJ-: by the way should leave my laptop ON so the putty can continue working ?20:33
TJ-TheEagerPadawan: certificates don't mean a lot to many of us; we go on your ability to adapt in the field to challenges, and knowing how systems tick and what the various core services are and how they should be managed. You only learn that by actually doing - moreso by playing about and deliberately breaking it and then trying to figure out how it broke and how to correct it20:33

ioriaSmn,  try to reinstall two packages ... http://askubuntu.com/questions/225519/applications-not-showing-in-unity-dash20:37
lotuspsychjeParadisee_: maybe this can help? http://guleweb.com/blog/?p=3420:37
TJ-TheEagerPadawan: the key word is "experience" and that includes things you do yourself. I'm much more impressed by seeing side-projects and self-taught skills because the most important skills are analysis, deduction, research, and working from documentation.20:37
Bashing-omwintermoon: In the installation phase, did you note where grub would be installed ? sdb ! .20:38
wintermoonBashing-om no, installation was automatic20:38
wintermoonBashing-om could boot into the OS and reinstall Grub be an option? or something?20:38
Smnioria, that guys problem is different, he's not getting any applications, I am but only the ones installed before x date, and anyway, I had already installe dthe applicaiton lens20:39
ioriaSmn,  ok20:39
TJ-wintermoon: have you tried switching boot device order?20:39
wintermoonTJ- 1st device is Drive where Ubuntu was installed20:40
Smnreinstalled* I mean. But it had no effect20:40
TJ-wintermoon: right, I'm saying if there are multiple devices, switch them!20:41
TJ-wintermoon: that, or positively prove where the boot-strap and boot-loader are20:41
wintermoonTJ- any way to prove that? please note I'm just a regular inexperienced user20:41
TJ-wintermoon: well, I generally try to work from evidence, so I do diagnosis to identify what the actual install locations look like, rather than guessing20:42
ioriaSmn,  is that you  :þ ? http://askubuntu.com/questions/704073/newly-installed-applications-not-showing-in-dash-menu20:42
wintermoonTJ- hmmm20:44
Smnthat's a mere coincidence. I haven't asked for help anywhere but here20:44
lotuspsychjemalloh: ubuntu version? card chipset? driver active?20:44
Smnafter reading it I'm surprised he seems to have done the same as me20:44
Smnalso, it seems his case is a little different, because he says they appear on reboot or after launching thorugh terminal, which doesn't happen to me20:45
TJ-wintermoon: the boot process is pretty simple: power-on > firmware power-on-self-test (POST) > firmware boot-manager -> read boot-strap code from boot device into memory > execute boot-strap > boot-strap loads additional boot-loader code > boot-manager menu > load OS > execute OS20:45
ioriaSmn,  right20:45
TJ-wintermoon: now, if the 'boot-strap' or 'boot loader' code was accidentally installed to a device which isn't 1st in the boot-order, the problems you describe would be expected. That's why I suggested trying to change the boot-order (if there are multiple devices available)20:46

ghost_hello guys20:46
sargecan anyone help me to get a registration number20:47
Smnlooks like 15.10 didn't come out so polished20:47
Smnthere is another bug related to the trash icon where if you empty the trash it will launch nautilus after the fact20:48
lotuspsychjeSmn: use LTS for more stable experience20:48
ioriaSmn,  you could try  #1220:48
TJ-sarge: Ubuntu does not have a registration number20:49
SmnI know, I prefer to deal with this than with older packages, just saying that a stable release shouldn't be suffering from these problem20:49
sargeI was on here and I took there was?20:50
wintermoonTJ- it seems that was the case, thank you20:50
wintermoonTJ- anyways it's still messy20:50
TJ-wintermoon: yay... so now it is booted, you need to *fix* that !20:50
TJ-wintermoon: as I understand it you now have a disk with the Linux boot-loader on, but the OS on a different disk?20:50
Smnioria, , that actually worked20:51
ioriaSmn,  you're lucky guy20:51
Smnso the problem is within the loader20:51
wintermoonTJ- indeed20:51
Smnthank you, ioria20:51
TJ-wintermoon: so, use "sudo lsblk -f" and identify which device name hosts the root file-system at /20:51
ioriaSmn,  you're welcome20:51
wintermoonTJ- sdb120:52
TJ-wintermoon: OK, now do "sudo grub-install /dev/sdb" and if no errors are reported, do "sudo update-grub"20:53
TJ-wintermoon: note that is "/dev/sdb" *not* "/dev/sdb1"20:54
wintermoonTJ- yep, done20:54
TJ-wintermoon: OK, reboot, change boot order to the 'Linux' device, and it should work20:54
wintermoonTJ- YAY! it boots, now lemme check if Win boots correctly20:56
EriC^^!yay | wintermoon20:56
ubottuwintermoon: Glad you made it! :-)20:56
TJ-wintermoon: that's where you may have to fix it up20:56
wintermoonTJ- yeah it was somewhat messy before installation, don't know how to explain tho, but had mixed bootings (?)20:57
=== mfisch is now known as Guest7150
wintermoonTJ- had two devices, one Win on each, and sometimes when booting the system would reboot before starting the OS20:57
TJ-wintermoon: when there are several devices, the installer sometimes guesses wrong. It assumes the device currently listed first by the firmware is the 1 you want as boot device, so unless you spot that and change it at partitioning time, the boot loader goes onto the 'wrong' device if you want to keep them separate20:58
wintermoonTJ- I see, I didn't know that, I messed at some point back then21:00
wintermoonTJ- now at Grub I see the following:21:00
wintermoonTJ- I have three Windows options... listed as follow:   *Win 8 (on /dev/sda1)   *Win 8 (on /dev/sda2)   *Win 8 (on /dev/sdc1)21:02
wintermoonTJ- I selected the first Win option, and it led me to the previous Windows default Dual-boot (previous to Ubuntu installation)21:03
TJ-wintermoon: urgh, sounds like it just got complicated!21:03
wintermoonTJ- LOL... I want grub to show only two Win options, one for sda and other for sdc...21:03
TJ-wintermoon: I'd *guess* /dev/sda1 is a Windows Recovery image (the first partition generally is, if not hidden)21:03
wintermoonTJ- I see21:04
TJ-wintermoon: so I'd think /dev/sda2 is one installation, and possibly sdc1 is the other (though that could be a Recovery image too!)21:04
TJ-wintermoon: try "sudo blkid"21:04
wintermoonTJ- one of them is a Win 7 dual-boot, dunno which21:05
TJ-wintermoon: if you can boot, from GRUB, into the Windows install, it might be worth having it re-install its own boot-strap code into the MBR of /dev/sda so it uses native Windows boot with no GRUB involvement, that way you can choose Win8 or Ubuntu simply by selected the boot device from firmware.21:06
TJ-wintermoon: just make sure it doesn't write it into that /dev/sdb!21:07
wintermoonTJ- hmmmm21:08
TJ-wintermoon: situations like these, I do love UEFI :)21:08
wintermoon2TJ- http://paste.ubuntu.com/13583685/21:09
wintermoonTJ- Win8 and DATA have both a Win8 installation on each21:10
TJ-wintermoon: GRUB relies on os-prober to add foreign OS entries. Try running it, see what it discovers. "sudo os-prober"21:11
wintermoonTJ- http://paste.ubuntu.com/13583750/21:13
TJ-wintermoon: so, that shows you os-prober thinks differently to you about sdc21:13
TJ-wintermoon: there is no GRUB configuration to have it amend the os-prober output; you can only disable it entirely so GRUB doesn't add foreign entries21:14
TJ-wintermoon: actually, the /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober shell script does process "GRUB_OS_PROBER_SKIP_LIST"21:16
TJ-wintermoon: it looks as if the code their looks for the UUID of the partition(s) you want to skip in that variable21:17
wintermoonTJ- I guess the boot was spoiled previously, but why it shows three different Windows options? There must be some way to get rid of them and let GRUB manage each Windows boot individually? :D21:18
TJ-wintermoon: so you could add GRUB_OS_PROBER_SKIP_LIST="069AE3D39AE3BCF5 C6EE2876EE286143"  to '/etc/default/grub' to have it skip /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdc121:19
TJ-wintermoon: but something is missing from /dev/sdc5 that os-prober expects, which is why it doesn't list that partition as bootable21:19
TJ-wintermoon: I seem to recall it looks for /boot/bootmgr.exe or similar21:20
TJ-wintermoon: the shell script in /usr/lib/os-probes/mounted/20microsoft  does the hunting/recognising of Windows OS21:21
wintermoonTJ- hmmm21:22
sulfasalon a new install 1510, how do I edit the preferences in terminal and gedit?21:28
bekkssulfasal: Which preferences?21:29
sulfasalline number background etc21:29
bekksof what?21:29
sulfasalterminal gedit etc theirs no way to configure them21:30
bekksTerminal doesnt have line numbers to be shown.21:30
sulfasalok gedit21:30
bekksif its not in the preferences, there is no way.21:31
sulfasallol, lubuntu does21:31
bekksSo its in the preferences - somewhere :)21:31
sulfasalLooking at gedit window on ubuntu1510 right now. No preferences21:32
sulfasalopen save print undo that's it21:33
nicomachusone sec sulfasal let me pull up gedit on one of my 15.10 machines21:33
EriC^^sulfasal: check the global menu at the top left corner ( mouse-over so it appears )21:34
nicomachussulfasal: lubuntu uses leafpad, not gedit21:34
sulfasalnicomachus: nuh-uh21:34
sulfasaluses both21:34
sulfasalEriC^^: nope, nothing there. Am I missing some GTK thingee? This is a brand new install.21:36
nicomachussulfasal: Edit --> Preferences and there's a check-box for "display line numbers" under view21:36
nicomachusit may be in your top menu bar, not connected to the actual gedit window.21:36
sulfasalnicomachus: ain't no edit there's just icons across the top open, save, print, undo that's it21:37
EriC^^sulfasal: hold alt so the menu at the top appears21:37
sulfasalEriC^^: ok I see now, it's on the top of the screen NOT the actual gedit window21:38
* nicomachus said that...21:38
EriC^^yeah, ubuntu uses global menu's if you hover the mouse over it it'll appear21:38
EriC^^( it can be disabled btw )21:38
EriC^^sulfasal: settings > appearance > behavior > menus21:39
TommallaHey, I broke my unity :<21:41
EriC^^sulfasal: np21:41
nicomachusTommalla: nothing wrong with that. :)21:41
EriC^^Tommalla: does the guest account work?21:41
TommallaSo, I have this liveUSB of 15.10. I booted it up, installed a bunch of things including nvidia-drivers and gcc-4.9 (trying to run a CUDA project on a liveUSB). After that I closed the lid of my laptop for a moment and that's when all hell broke loose.21:43
=== ^cj^ is now known as ^CJ^
TommallaWhen I reopened the lid, there was a login screen but whenever I logged in (login: ubuntu, pass:blank), there would be an error about some program crashing (unity, I presume?). I rebooted, and now I only get the desktop with no top/left bars nor window decorations.21:44
TommallaWhen I tried to run unity from console, it gave me errors about glib missing. I reinstalled python-gobject and upgraded unity. Now when I try to run unity from console it hangs on "compiz (core) - Error: Plugin 'opengl' not loaded." and nothing more happens.21:45
Tommallanicomachus, EriC^^: ^21:45
daftykinsTommalla: don't see the point in trying to achieve such a task from a live session.21:47
daftykinsand no debug can be done because you'll reboot and it'll all be gone...21:48
simon^^I am a consultant doing an assignment for a major home appliance company. It is a research project and I'm creating a datalogger for dishwashers. The platform I use is a beaglebone with a custom cape that has the electronics required to talk to the dishwasher. Ubuntu 14.04 was selected for rootfs and I`m using the freshest 4.1 kernel. This device is going to be shipped to customers (brainless people) and they will need21:49
simon^^to connect to the logger through its wifi and install deb packages using some windows program I will write to update the software on their logger. My question is: what available options do I have for remotely installing software where everything has to be operated by braindead people (consumers)?21:49
daftykinssimon^^: why such a new kernel? also if this thing is ARM, bear in mind #ubuntu-arm exists21:50
nicomachus4.1 on 14.04?21:50
daftykinsyeah stops it being ubuntu imo.21:50
simon^^Irrelevant, I am not going to change kernel21:50
daftykinssimon^^: but you already have, since 4.1 doesn't come with 14.0421:50
daftykinsso what you're running is no longer ubuntu 14.0421:50
simon^^It is still irrelevant to the question21:51
daftykinsyes, but i'm asking anyway - being stubborn and refusing just makes you come across as though you have an attitude21:51
Tommalladaftykins: It won't. I have a partition on that liveusb for the data. AFAIK it should stay there.21:51
simon^^It was a collegue of mine, I agree it was a stupid decision and I have spent tens of hours just to wrestle kernel issues, but right now its what ive got :P21:52
=== Monthrect is now known as Piper-Off
Tommalladaftykins: There's no other way to do this - this is the only CUDA-compatible machine I have and it's not mine so I cannot modify the hard drive21:52
daftykinssimon^^: why not configure a default samba share that people can throw packages on, then script up automatically parsing that path to install them? if i follow you right21:52
simon^^He mentioned something about "new networking features"21:52
daftykinsTommalla: then your plan is flawed.21:52
TJ-simon^^: if the 'logger' ahs WiFi why can't it update packages itself?21:52
simon^^daftykins, that is one option, we were also discussing setting up a node server and http posting debs21:53
dusan_Hello there21:53
simon^^I was thinking there might be some corporate 'distribute software transparently to clients' way too, but I know of none21:54
daftykinswhat do those beaglebones run from? SD cards for the OS, like a Pi?21:54
zerowaitstatesimon^^: take a look at snappy maybe?21:54
Tommalladaftykins: Well, have a better idea?21:54
daftykinsTommalla: yeah, arrange proper access to a proper target machine you *can* control.21:54
Tommalladaftykins: told you, impossible21:54
TommallaI can, however, suspend this machine21:54
TommallaWhich I have been doing21:55
simon^^It runs from internal flash. First it boots from SD, then it copies the SD card to internal eMMC card and dd's null to the boot sector of the SD using a custom script21:55
daftykinsTommalla: enjoy then. your constraints sound utterly ridiculous.21:55
simon^^then it formats the SD and use it for storing logs21:55
daftykinssimon^^: ah, so too slow to ship updated cards i take it?21:55
simon^^zerowaitstate, I will do that, thanks21:56
dusan_Is there anyone around who uses Ubuntu Gnome?21:56
zerowaitstatesimon^^: bear in mind snappy isn't really production ready yet21:56
TJ-simon^^: set-up your own ubuntu mirror archive which contains just the packages required; configure the 'logger' device to use that as its repos, ensure the device can get an IPv4 and IPv6 address using dhcp/dhcpv6 and RA, and that your repo server answers to both IPv4/v6, and has DNS entries for both A and AAAA records, and then all you do is publish a new version of the package in your repo and all the21:56
TJ-loggers will eventually call-in and upgrade21:56
bekksdusan_: I bet some people do.#21:56
simon^^daftykins, not really, it is just something I made quickly for the upcoming release. Later we will probably PXE boot or something21:56
TJ-I know a gnome that uses Ubuntu :)21:57
simon^^the installation is done at the factory21:57
dusan_hahaah nice one :D21:57
daftykinsdusan_: ask the actual question21:57
zerowaitstatewould GNOME Ubuntu be Gubuntu?21:57
simon^^TJ the logger can only access the laptop of the customer when they connect, it is a design decision to not allow it to access the internet in any way21:58
dusan_Nah just wondering how many people use it :D21:58
k1lzerowaitstate: no. its ubuntu-gnome21:58
dusan_everything is good but gnome-terminal sucks balls21:58
simon^^and the laptop has very restricted company policy so they cant install anything and they are definately not admin :P21:58
simon^^and it runs windoze21:59
nicomachusdusan_: that's really a discussion for #ubuntu-offtopic, this is strictly a support channel21:59
dusan_Ah ok :)21:59
TJ-simon^^: how will the customer connect then? will they have to switch to ad-hoc wifi mode, or do you intend the device to operate as an AP, potentially polluting the 802.11bg band ?21:59
dusan_Ok then I have a real question is there any way to make unity web player run on Ubuntu?21:59
TJ-simon^^: or is the device connecting by wired Ethernet, or USB?22:00
nicomachusdusan_: you may find this helpful: https://askubuntu.com/questions/425317/unity-web-player-for-ubuntu22:00
daftykinsdusan_: probably not, i see a lot of articles talking about pipelight hacks but i bet most of those fail now.22:00
daftykinsheh yeah like the above link, which has replies saying it doesn't work22:00
* nicomachus slinks away and leaves daftykins to handle things22:01
daftykinsnicomachus: i was on the same page when you linked it :D22:03
* nicomachus is still only on level 3 of his Hooked-on-Phonics audiotape22:03
simon^^TJ-, The device operates as an AP. What do you mean by polluting the 802.11bg band? Do I need to have some certificate to run an AP or is it just a general concern?22:09
simon^^I checked out snappy, its not really what im looking for22:10
TJ-simon^^: general concern - most homes are already congested with neighbour APs; adding another isn't going to win friends22:10
TJ-simon^^: if it only operates when turned on/off manually to do data exchanges that'd be OK, but I'd recommend against an always-on AP device22:10
simon^^TJ-, it operates when you run a program on your dishwasher22:11
k1lsimon^^: canonical got some thing called "landscape"22:11
simon^^its powered by the powerboard bus22:11
TJ-simon^^: any programme, or a special one for data logging? if the former, I'd expect some customers reporting 'bad wifi' for their personal systems when the thing is operating.22:12
TJ-simon^^: 2.4GHz  band with 802.11b/g (20 MHz channel width) has only 3 completely non-overlapping channels. When it is 802.11n (40MHz channel width) that reduces to 2.22:13
BigMaoHi there, I've been experiencing freezing on a fresh install of Ubuntu. The input devices are unresponsive for about 1-2 minutes after seeing the login screen.  How can I diagnose this problem?22:14
simon^^TJ the goal of the product is to "monitor" the habits of the customer, and to parse logs to find suspicious sensor values etc. using analysis software. Only employees will have it and they will get a free dishwasher in exchange for using the system. This means that yes, it runs on any programme22:14
TJ-simon^^: if those Windows PCs are locked down, I'd suggest the easiest way to have ubuntu updates delivered would be to have a minimal Ubuntu virtual machine to deliver them, running on Windows22:14
simon^^I was thinking that. The aim is to have an application with two buttons to run on their computer. They press one button when they are home, and one when they are at work. Thats the whole synchronization mechanism. We want to download logs, update software and add (change) configuration files. Ive developed a bunch of deb packages for all this already but the thing I still have to do is this updating mechanism.22:16
TJ-simon^^: we have some packages designed to do that kind of thing. apt-mirror, apt-cacher-ng, aptoncd, and others22:16
BigMaoI'm also having an issue where I can't access any of my virtual terminals (CTRL + ALT + F1-F6).  Instead I get a blank screen.  Does anyone have this problem?22:17

corvohi guys, trying to install yumi and first I couldn't because I didn't have gambas3-runtime installed on my 12.04. I found a way to manually install it by following a wiki, I did but then I had to create a dummy package for it with 'equivs'. Followed that procedure too but it gave me this error http://pastebin.fr/43624. I still tried to install it after all (now that I manage to manually install gambas3-runtime even if without equivs...) and It works but it doe22:32
corvosn't start giving me this other error "Cannot load class 'TrayIcon': Unable to load class file. FMain.FMain.0" Dunno what to do anymore, help! Please :)22:32
ubuntu452TJ-: Hypothetically if the issue is with the monitor not being correctly identified, I presume I'd have to install the monitor drivers, is that right?22:32
nicomachuscorvo: any reason you're still running 12.04?22:32
daftykinsubuntu452: no22:32
daftykinsubuntu452: i take it you're new to Linux and normally use Windows? drivers aren't the answer :)22:33
TJ-ubuntu452: no, my first suggestion if EDID fails is to check the pins at both ends of the VGA monitor - specifically the DDC pins22:33
corvonicomachis: hardware stability with my machine, tried 13.10 and 14.04 but there were no doubts I should have go back to 12.04, way faster and better for my pc22:33
corvonicomachus: hardware stability with my machine, tried 13.10 and 14.04 but there were no doubts I should have go back to 12.04, way faster and better for my pc22:33
ubuntu452daftykins, TJ- I haven't used Linux in a while... forgot about the configuration issues after installing a distro =)22:33
TJ-ubuntu452: EDID is transferred over the DDC link as digital data. That failing is a common problem due to physical issues. Believe it or not, some cheaper VGA cables leave out the DDC signal22:34
corvoanyway, I obviously canno install dummy package for gambas3-runtime and that bothers yumi's boot, any idea how to solve it?22:35
ubuntu452TJ-: That could be the case, sadly I'm at home now and that is the PC at work (probably they got a cheap ass VGA cable), any ideas how to fix it not involving changing the cable? (It might take weeks b4 they get the right one and I don't want to have to buy one myself)22:35
TJ-ubuntu452: you'd have to create custom modelines matching what the monitor can do, and add them to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file in a 'Monitor' section, along with an associated 'Screen' section22:37
daftykinswe're talking a couple of pounds,dollars,euros22:37
daftykinsgo on, splash out for Christmas :P22:37
ubuntu452daftykins: I'm cheap too xD22:37
TJ-ubuntu452: swap the cable from 1 from a Windows PC - it'll never notice - they 'll just blame the drivers :D22:37
roHello. Im trying to wipe a ssd. Im using the command "pv < /dev/zero/ > /dev/sdb" Im getting an eta of 265hrs. Is there any way to speed this up?22:37
TJ-ro: use the SSD's ATA Secure Erase command. 10 seconds22:38
mcphailubuntu452: what graphics driver are you actually using just now? Has the system dropped to the vesa driver? Have you booted with "nomodeset" (which will drop to the vesa driver if there is no proprietary driver installed)?22:38
ubuntu452TJ-: Hahahahahaha! I don't see many ppl around using windoes machines... It's mostly mac users (they have all their cool cables and stuff)22:38
daftykinswhere cool = ridiculous22:39
ubuntu452mcphail: I literally just installed ubuntu 14.04 today on the machine, it was running 12 something...22:40
mcphailubuntu452: what is the native resolution you are looking for?22:40
ubuntu452daftykins: indeed, sadly they'll probably have to replace *ALL* the cables with the next version of the mac22:40
daftykinsubuntu452: wouldn't hurt to see a "pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log"22:40
ubuntu452daftykins: can't provide it :( tried sshing over the VPN only to realise that I turned off the machine before leaving work :'((((22:41
daftykinsthen what was the faked resolution output you shared earlier?22:42
ubuntu452daftykins: I was so proud of myself for being a good citizen and turning it off as I left :/22:42
TJ-ubuntu452: would have been more fun to do it remotely over SSH :p22:43
daftykinswell write it down for tomorrow, install 'pastebinit', run "pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log" and write down the link to share here when available22:43
ubuntu452mcphail: Something nicer than 1024x76822:43
ubuntu452TJ-: that's what I was hoping for xP22:43
ubuntu452TJ-: I'll enable wake on lan for next time ^-^22:43
nicomachuseverything is more fun when done remotely over SSH, EXCEPT for distro upgrades.22:43
mcphailubuntu452: but what is the res of the monitor?22:43
daftykinsmaybe leave it on and double check you installed openssh-server, too...22:43
* nicomachus learned the hard way22:43
TJ-ubuntu452: and don't forget, check the hardware connections, that might be all it needs. I've seen the DDC pins bent inside the connector several times. *gently* prising them back to straight fixes it - but don't snap them!22:44
TJ-nicomachus: what issues did you have with distr upgrades?22:44
ubuntu452mcphail: might be something like 1900x... but I'm not 100% sure22:44
ubuntu452mcphail: I'll check the hardware tomorrow if the VGA cable doesn't work and write the Xorg.conf file by hand to a nicer resolution22:45
nicomachusTJ-: It was a few months ago. something ended up getting corrupted on the reboot, and I lost the whole HDD because it was all encrypted and couldn't be recovered. It was a loooooong deal.22:45
TJ-nicomachus: that is where installing dropbear does wonders, especially in the initrd22:46
mcphailubuntu452: if it _is_ a 1920x1080 monitor, you can try adding "drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/1920x1080.bin" to your kernel boot line. If you're using radeon or nouveau drivers, that should prompt them to set resolution correctly22:46
daftykinsanother win for encryption :D22:46
daftykinsmcphail: intel only so we're told.22:46
ubuntu452mcphail: no radeon/nouveau drivers, it's intel only (should definitely request a GPU for that thing though...)22:46
nicomachusTJ-: I just googled dropbear and got a mythical australian koala thing...22:46
mcphaildaftykins: ahh. Haven't tried it on intel, but it should work on any kernel modesetting drivers22:47
nicomachusah, this? https://github.com/mkj/dropbear22:47
TJ-daftykins: encryption can only break if the LUKS header gets its mast key damaged. sectors in the data area being corrupted are just like corrupted sectors anywhere22:47
daftykinsnicomachus: perhaps add linux :P22:47
TJ-!info dropbear | nicomachus22:47
ubottunicomachus: dropbear (source: dropbear): lightweight SSH2 server and client. In component universe, is optional. Version 2014.65-1ubuntu2 (wily), package size 171 kB, installed size 997 kB22:47
mcphailubuntu452: give it a try anyway. Haven't tested on intel, but worst that will happen will be you'll have to reboot22:47
nicomachusTJ-: that's exactly what happened to me. the LUKS header key was corrupted and couldn't be recovered.22:47
TJ-nicomachus: it's statically linked (so binaries are stand-alone)22:47
TJ-nicomachus: and of course you had created a dump of the LUKS header on some removable media :D22:48
nicomachusTJ-: Of course!22:48
ubuntu452mcphail: If I did that, would I get that resolution on all TTYs?22:48
nicomachus(after that all happened....)22:48
TJ-nicomachus: stable-door, horse-bolted, !22:48
mcphailubuntu452: it should give you the opportunity to set that resolution22:49
* nicomachus learns from mistakes, but unfortunately often fails to learn things *before* the mistakes happen22:49
ubuntu452So, unrelated to what we've discussed so far regarding the intel drivers, how do I improve the resolution of the TTYs in an ubuntu machine?22:49
daftykinsthey wouldn't be mistakes if you didn't :>22:49
daftykinsubuntu452: they're part of the same thing actually, so just focus on checking those things tomorrow22:50
noobstrapHello. Installed radeon drivers and ubuntu isn't booting. What logs should I check?22:50
ubuntu452daftykins: nvm... Just checked this machine's TTY resolution and it's behaving as expected22:50
daftykinsnoobstrap: which specifically, 'fglrx' ?22:50
ubuntu452daftykins: Yeah I'll have a look, thanks guys!22:51
daftykinssee you can't call them radeon, since 'radeon' is also a driver ;)22:51
daftykinshow did you install?22:51
daftykinswhich ubuntu are we even talking about? which card too?22:51
noobstrapfrom the additional hardware menu22:51
noobstrapI managed to uninstall the drivers and ubuntu is working again but im interested in making the mwork22:52
daftykinsgonna need the above info then22:52
noobstrapI'd like to troubleshoot but i don't know which logs to check22:52
mcphailubuntu452: I think you can still pass vga modes these days, as well: https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/svga.txt22:53
noobstrapI'm on ubuntu 15.0422:53
daftykinsright and the card?22:53
noobstrapradeon 687022:53
daftykinsdid you also get offered fglrx-updates to try?22:53
noobstrapyes i've tried them both22:54
noobstrapI used to solve this issue in the past by installing the linux headers22:54
noobstrapbut it didn't work this time22:54
daftykinswhen it fails, do TTYs work? or do you get everything blank?22:55
noobstrapit freezes int he ubuntu loading screen and cant swith tty22:55
noobstrapcan only turn off by powerbutton22:55
daftykinsmmm not much luck trying to get any logs out of that then - tried booting with 'quiet splash' removed?22:56
ubuntu452mcphail: Those look horrible, although it appears to have an 'autodetect' feature... Not brave enough to try that (don't feel like frying the monitor)22:57
noobstrapdon't know where i fucked up, I'm prob gonna fresh install the latest LTS version22:59
ubottuThe main Ubuntu channels require that you speak in calm, polite English. For other languages, please visit https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList22:59
daftykinsbear in mind AMD just put your card into legacy status22:59
CountryfiedLinuxDoes the Ubuntu installer install any closed source drivers by default?22:59
CountryfiedLinuxfor graphics23:00
bekksCountryfiedLinux: no.23:00
CountryfiedLinuxok cool bekks thanks.23:00
noobstrapThanks daftykins, sorry for the language ^_^23:01
daftykinsnoobstrap: you could pastebin the output of installing one of the packags, so we can see if the module is built correctly23:05
utiodoes anyone know what software i can use to help build css based GTK3 theme ?23:10
utioI really want to edit the Arc theme which is in .css , but I dont know what the CSS fields are to change the value !!23:10
cuddylierWhat is the maximum throughput of a 6Gb/s LSI raid card if I have a systme with PCIe slots?23:11

BigMaoHi there, I'm having a lot of trouble getting larger X11 fonts to work in Ubuntu 14.04.  I want to do this by setting the DPI in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.  Can somebody tell me how to do this?23:17
BigMaoThe text scaling factor does not work when the program uses X11 fonts.23:20
dgistandowhats the point?23:23
sector_0hey guys23:24
sector_0any idea why my wireless keyboard and mouse combo doesn't work correctly?23:24
sector_0I plugged in the dongle, and put batteries in the mouse and keyboards, with correct polarity23:24
sector_0the keyboard work fine as far as I see, but the mouse doesn't work at all23:25
sector_0when I turn on the mouse, the light flashes couple times and never comes back on23:25
daftykinsnot associated perhaps23:25
sector_0daftykins, what you mean?23:26
OerHeksIf you cannot pair the mouse, sounds like broken, bring it back where you bought it.23:29
daftykinssector_0: the receiver must be associated with both parts, what make are they?23:29
sector_0daftykins, OerHeks it's an old model so that's why I'm not too convinced it's a hardware issue23:30
sector_0I think it might be a driver issue23:30
sector_0the model is BL-IBM-KM50023:30
=== ^CJ^ is now known as ^cj^
sector_0it's a nipponamerica device23:30
daftykinswell as long as all 3 were used together in the past, they should already be associated23:30
OerHeksNo, i don't think it is a driver problem.23:31
daftykinsagreed, the likelihood 50% of a receiver is working is quite low23:31
TJ-is it a Bluetooth device, or using its own radio modulation/frequency?23:32
sector_0TJ-, well it's using 2.4GHz but it doesn't follow the bluetooth standard from what I gather, since my bluetooth dongle don't detect them23:33
retrojeffif /run/user/1000/dconf/user is owned by root the desktop will crash23:34
retrojeffand cause 100% cpu usage23:34
sector_0daftykins, well I recently bought it23:34
retrojeffstuff like mate-panel etc23:34
daftykinsah so they are not guaranteed to work together23:34
daftykinssector_0: no buttons on the receiver for sync i take it?23:35
retrojeffwho and what changes /run/user/1000/dconf/user to be owned by root23:35
TJ-sector_0: if the receiver can't pair with the mouse that points to something outside the OS, unless they are paired but the receiver needs a driver to handle the mouse, but not the keyboard.23:35
sector_0I mean the real reason I bought it was to replace my old keyboard, the mouse is secondary but it'll be nice to have it23:35
k1lretrojeff: missusage of sudo and root account?23:35
sector_0TJ-, well I'm not 100% sure it doesn't "pair"23:36
TJ-sector_0: their is usually an identifable LED sequence to identify the modes, check the manual23:36
TJ-sector_0: compare "the light flashes couple times and never comes back on" with what the manual says should be happening23:37
sector_0TJ-, the manual doesn't say anything about flash patterns23:42
daftykinssector_0: best advice, test it on a Windows machine23:46
daftykinsno point going to length working it out when you can just check23:46
sector_0daftykins, I only have access to a windows 8 computer and as is expected....there's no driver23:47
TJ-sector_0: from what I'm reading, the device presents as standard USB HID devices, so no special OS drivers are required  (the standard USB HID class driver is sufficient) so the issue is in the hardware23:47
sector_0oh well, at least the keyboard's working23:47
OerHekssector_0, so you bought it recently, it does not work on windows 8, and you think it is a ubuntu driver issue??23:53
daftykinsi'd put the batteries in backwards :> those things look cheap and nasty23:54
OerHekschange the keyboard batteries with the ones in the mouse ..23:54
sector_0OerHeks, in case you haven't realize windows 8 doesn't have drivers for a lot of things23:55
sector_0especially older hardware23:55
OerHeksunlikely for keyboards & mice..23:55
daftykinsthat's utter rubbish23:55
OerHeksthis is just a waste of time.23:55
Gallomimiadon't worry, windows 8 is open source so you can add any drivers you want. oh wait.... no that's something else23:55
daftykinsit is not a driver issue - check your foolish Windows comments at the door, thanks23:56
sector_0OerHeks, I know...just saying23:56
sector_0and besides like I said windows doesn't recognize it as a HID input device so your argument is technically invalid23:57
daftykinsregardless of what you think, not a Windows channel :)23:58
sector_0anyways scrap the whole discussion, like I said the mouse isn't important, it was just a cheap buy for a keyboard replacement23:58
