Clutchhello there, I get this error while trying to install an application: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14602632/  I am new to this, can you please help me?00:03
Clutcham I online?00:05
vilitalttiClutch: yes you are :P00:05
BackBroke12Make sure that `gem install sqlite3 -v '1.3.8'` succeeds before bundling.  Does this succeed or fail?00:05
ClutchBackBroke12, it looks like this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14602671/00:07
BackBroke12You forgot a ' at the end00:08
Clutchsorry, a typing error there00:08
Clutchjust corrected00:08
mcphailClutch: as you've found, running non-standard package management software is an exercise in frustration. If you must persist, I suggest you install the "libsqlite3-dev" package which should provide the missing header file00:08
ClutchBackBroke12, now I have this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14602691/00:09
Clutchmcphail, thank you for the hint! sure, doing it now00:09
BackBroke12Run as sudo, Your installing to the /var directory00:09
=== hdrv is now known as hdrvhd
ClutchBackBroke12, I got the same error as before00:11
=== 7JTAAA711 is now known as foobarbecue
ClutchI mean this one: http://paste.ubuntu.com/14602632/00:11
BackBroke12Did you run `gem install sqlite3 -v '1.3.8'` as sudo or bundle install --without production00:12
Clutchhope it works after lib install00:12
Clutchyes, I ran it as sudo00:13
Clutchtried after libsqlite3-dev is installed, and bundle install is completed now!00:14
mcphailPlease don't run gem install as sudo unless (a) you really want to and (b) you really know what you are doing00:14
Clutchmcphail, BackBroke12 thank you very much!00:15
Clutchmcphail, thank you, I'll remember it, too!00:15

_SLM_Hi. When I try to start Unrest, I get the error: ./Unrest: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL2-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory00:21
_SLM_I searched online first, but found no useful answer00:21
Clutchmcphail, if it's a ruby problem, sure..but I wonder if they can help with any ubuntu-related fix00:21
miteshhi All00:21
_SLM_So idea what a so.0 file is either00:21
BackBroke12mcphail ubottu Apologies I have never heard of popcorn. I just search youtube and posted the first link. I though it was just some useless media server.00:22
miteshi am looking for a DLNA manager (GUI) any pointers?00:22
_SLM_*No idea00:22
mcphailClutch: that isn't ubuntu-related at that point - you're deep into Ruby country there ;)00:22
miteshi have tried Rygel and minidlna00:22
mcphail_SLM_: have you tried installing SDL2 from the package manager?00:22
Clutchmcphail, I felt myself like that, too :)00:22
_SLM_mcphail I did that, now I got this error: ./Unrest: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL2_image-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory00:25
mcphail_SLM_: what error did you get before?00:25
_SLM_Before it was ./Unrest: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL2-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory00:26
mcphail_SLM_: oops - misread. Yes, install SDL2-image as well00:26
mcphail_SLM_: you might need SDL2-mixer and SDL2_ttf as well00:26
_SLM_yeah, mixer was next00:27
_SLM_maybe ttf will follow hehe00:27
mcphail_SLM_: this is a game you've downloaded from somewhere, I presume?00:27
k1l_doesnt that ship a depencies list?00:28
_SLM_The Humble Bundle website. first time user00:28
_SLM_I previously used GOG.com (which IMO is easier, but more expensive)00:28
mcphail_SLM_: check the install directory. There might be a list of dependencies supplied00:28
_SLM_I'll check00:29
_SLM_good suggestion00:29
_SLM_No list found. But I did see in /lib a hint and what deps will come next. Not a long list if those are all00:31
_SLM_It ran and then I got a bunch of in-game errors and it closed00:33
jesse___Anyone else on ancient computers running lubuntu or xubuntu? I'm feeling really retro here00:34

mcphail_SLM_: create a .desktop file and put it in ~/.local/share/applications . You'll see examples in there already00:46
_SLM_Thank you!00:47
_SLM_mcphail I did it and double checked, but it doesn't show up in unity eye00:54
_SLM_I followed the examples00:54
mcphail_SLM_: If you're sure about your syntax and paths, try logging out and logging back in00:55
_SLM_http://pastebin.com/DbDV83x0 <- this is correct, right?00:56
sarkisfound it...00:58
sarkisk1l_: sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confdef" -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confold" install -f -y00:58
_SLM_I restarted, It didn't help01:00
mcphail_SLM_: it doesn't show at all when you search?01:01
mcphail_SLM_: if you copy the desktop file to ~/Desktop/ does it show on your desktop?01:02
_SLM_It does not01:03
mcphail_SLM_: odd. Remove everything bar [Desktop Entry], Name line, Icon line and Exec line01:05
_SLM_I didn't. Still not showing on desktop but the file did suddenly get an icon in nautilus01:07
_SLM_*I did01:07
* mcphail notes the original file shows on his computer01:07
_SLM_Hey, when I drag&drop the file from the ~/Desktop folder to my actual desktop it does show up01:08
_SLM_Oh! I think I know what it might be01:08
_SLM_I have a conky manager widget that might be hiding the icon01:09
_SLM_if in the left top corner01:09
Guest7anyone using a GTX980 with Ubuntu 15.10?01:09
mcphail_SLM_: does it work if you double click on it?01:10
_SLM_I'm fairly sure now. When I drag it towards that corner, it dissapears01:10
_SLM_It says there was an error executing the file01:10
mcphail_SLM_: you might need to tweak that Exec line as I don't think the -nocontroller flag belongs in the quotes01:10
_SLM_Changed it, didn't make a difference01:12
_SLM_Changed to: Exec="/home/dennis/Games/Mark of the Ninja Special Edition/bin/ninja-bin64" -nocontroller01:12
mcphail_SLM_: definitely changed the right one? Didn't change it in the one which is hidden behind conky? What is output of "ls ~/Desktop/*.desktop"?01:13
_SLM_File or directory does not exist01:14
_SLM_it says01:14
_SLM_Ah, it's because I have a non-English Ubuntu01:15
_SLM_1 sec01:16
_SLM_The output is 1 line: /home/dennis/Bureaublad/Mark of the Ninja Special Edition.desktop01:16
t3ddySerious errors were found while checking the disk for /. This is the error im getting when im trying to first boot ubuntu, can anyone help me out?01:17
_SLM_The icon is currently not hidden behind conky01:17
mcphail_SLM_: it sounds as if you're _almost_ there. Can I leave you to experiment/tweak the Exec line? (Paths with spaces always cause problems). I need to get to bed as I have work in a few hours01:18
_SLM_Off course, thank you so much for helping me today :)01:19
mcphail_SLM_: hope you get it fixed. Goodnight :)01:19

HappyHippiethe problem with my version of firefox is that it's very old... i tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still only installed the old version02:15

HappyHippiehow do i install chrome using apt-get please nicomachus?02:23
Ben64you go to google.com/chrome and download it02:23

joobavoid copy/paste of one-liners too unless you understand them :)02:29
ChibaPetjoob: but, curl docker-things | /bin/sh!02:30
ChibaPetOh. That does remind me, though... I have a vague recollection of seeing that Ubuntu ships some sort of tool(s) for managing containers, and I thought it was based on LXC or a modified LXC. Is this a thing? Searching, but I'm curious. I eventually want to replace some FreeBSD jails.02:31

mycatdaphneWhen installing ubuntu, is there any way to choose what bootloader to use? I would rather use the choose and os menu built into windows02:35
ChibaPetjoob: The page, in case you don't have a browser handy, suggests, among other things: sudo ubuntu-drivers devices02:35
joobim on another pc right now02:35
joobi can boot with recovery mode on the laptop just not regular way02:35
ChibaPetjoob: See what it recommends for drivers there, as one idea.02:36
EriC^^joob: ok, boot the normal way and press ctrl+alt+f1 and login02:36
mycatdaphneHow do i use the windows bootloader when installing ubuntu. This will be the first laptop i've installed it on.02:36
geniimycatdaphne: The short answer is You can't02:37
Mneurogrub is better for dual booting since you can configure it within ubuntu if you need to02:37
mycatdaphneIs there any way that i can use the os selection tool built into windows, instead of using grub02:37
EriC^^mycatdaphne: ask ##windows02:37
joobjust running the cmd ChibaPet suggested02:37
geniimycatdaphne: If Windows controls the booting instead of Grub, it refuses to see Ubuntu ( any many other OS as well)02:37
ChibaPetmycatdaphne: Oh, is it a UEFI laptop? You probably can then.02:37
EriC^^genii: maybe he can add it as a bcd entry? if he's using uefi?02:38
mycatdaphneI'm not sure. It is and HP Pavilion X360 with H20 Insyde BIOS02:38
EriC^^anyways /join ##windows and ask there02:38
geniiEriC^^: Thats why the LONG answer is "maybe"02:38
ChibaPetmycatdaphne: A web search suggests that that is indeed a UEFI system. I'm not sure what Windows is doing, but Ubuntu will install the right things in a UEFI boot directory. Hard to say if Windows will present it without prodding or not.02:39
joobnah.. didnt work02:40

ChibaPetmycatdaphne: Some reading for you: http://www.zdnet.com/article/seven-ways-to-set-up-multi-booting-with-windows-8-and-linux/02:43
mycatdaphneill look at that, brb02:43
bosiEriC^^, yes, live USB works just fine. that's how I did the installation.02:44
EriC^^bosi: ok, boot it up02:44
bosiEriC^^, I just installed manjaro thinking that maybe it was an ubuntu thing. Still ok if I boot from the Manjaro flashdrive?02:46
EriC^^yeah it's fine as long as you get a live environment02:46
Ben64bosi: so you don't have ubuntu installed?02:47
bosiBen64, I had, but after this error I switched to Manjaro which the problem is still happening.02:48
Ben64well we can't help you with manjaro02:48
EriC^^bosi: manjaro is installed right now on the hard disk?02:49
bosiBen64, doesn't seem like a ubuntu or manjaro problem really... more like booting linux overall.02:49

MarchHareUmeaboy: But I don't want to use a pre-rolled theme. I'm fine with what I have, but I just want to use a few custom cursors04:20
Umeaboylerner: Why didn't you add a space at the -n ?04:20
lernerUmeaboy, lol04:20
UmeaboyMarchHare: I'd check the readme file of every cursor archive.04:21
UmeaboyGo to kde-look.org to find some interesting cursors.04:21
MarchHareUmeaboy: There isn't a readme, and there isn't an archive. This is a cursor I cooked up years and years ago on a Win3.1 machine. I'm trying to convert it and use it.04:22
MarchHareConverting it isn't going to be a problem, there's plenty of info on that.04:22

lotuspsychjeGegsite, SirMoo both file a hug guys...09:06

lotuspsychjeGegsite: what do you mean mate?09:10
SirMooI have weird trouble with the lense on 14.04, bishops. It often does not search properly on the intial try... removing a few letters and retyping will normally have it work properly.09:10
GegsiteI will not register for a bug09:10
bishopsSirMoo: This is exactly what happens with me!09:10
SirMoobishops: Most of the time for me it happens with skype... I type in skype and it gives totally pointless things... Like an mp3 with the name sky in it or something... Then if I remove the ype and type it again it properly finds it...09:12
SirMooXD I don't understand it atall to be honest.09:12
lotuspsychjeGegsite: thats your choice mate...thats all i could for you09:13
bishopsSirMoo: Yes and the other time it happens is if you have recently added files into dropbox for example it just won't see them unless you open them manually one first time.09:13
GegsiteThanks all :P09:13
Gegsitenow I searching how to downgrade09:14
SirMooGegsite: downgrade what?09:14
Gegsitenvidia driver to 346 or something09:14
bishopsSirMoo: honestly when you compare with spotlight on Mac it's just really not there yet..09:14
SirMooGegsite: just type in apt-get install nvidia-(version-you-want-here)09:15

Loshkidani__: the only ones I have experience with are virtualbox and vmware. In principle it should work, but the problem is always performance: unless your cpu and ram can handle the load, you may never be satisfied with the results. The reverse might work better, e.g. windows host, ubuntu guest, if you can live with that.09:53
dani__which should i choose .. virtualbox or vmware??09:54
dani__can you please provide an apt-get method of downloading?09:54
Loshkidani__: well, virtualbox is free...09:54
ubottuVirtualbox is a virtualizer for x86 and amd64 architectures. It's available in the package "virtualbox" in the !repositories, and you can download the Virtualbox Extension Pack for additional, non-Free functionality at http://virtualbox.org .

dani__hi .. ok ive installed virtualbox.. its' asking me how much ram i should allocate??? my system has a total of 8GB ram.. how much should i allocate? considering that i wan to run tv capture device on windows 7???10:04
ikoniaI suspect your results will be dissapointing10:05
dani__how so ikonia ?10:05
ikoniaunless you have a way to directly map the physical tv capture device through to the virutal machine10:05
dani__will the virtualbox detect the hardware?10:06
ikoniathis works "ok" for graphics cards, but I've found it very dissapointing with devices such as TV cards with encoders on10:06
trixtatorlerner, that depends on what you want to do?10:06

ikoniawhich is why you may find your tv card a poor experience10:39
dani__ah ok ikonia10:39

dani__thanks for your help today10:40
ikoniajerry-ing: yes, after this discussion10:40
ikoniadani__: no problem, out of interest why do you want to run this in a VM ?10:40
ikoniadani__: would the TV card not work in Linux ?10:41
CIclopsikonia, maybe only 3 PPA's now :) .. i discovered why I have this issue, i used a vivid repos that conflicted my trusty installation in order to build an app that i no longer use and have removed with synaptic10:41
ikoniaCIclops: it's too late removing them now - you've already installed fro mthem10:41
ikoniaonce you've installed from them, the damage has been done, removing the repo after the install does nthing10:41
dani__im thinking it's a bit over my head tbh... ive ordered a tv card that is meant to work with linux.. but im not sure how.. if i can get it to work in a vm i'd be happy10:42
dani__thanks again ikonia10:42
ikoniadani__: if you're struggling to get a TV card to work in linux thats supported, you're way over your head trying to do it in a VM and pass through from linux10:42
ikoniadani__: stick to the simpler task of getting it working in linux10:42
jerry-ingCan anyone other than ikonia help me install ubuntu10:42
CIclopsikonia, can i transfer my app settings or do i have to copy them all by hand?10:44
ikoniaback them up and restore them, but as the versions may differ, you may want to consider re-creating them properly10:44
trijntjejerry-ing: why cant you install ubuntu?10:45

vbotkajerry-ing, some sw you selected culdn't be installed. Either the media is broken, or you're not connected to the internet, I guess.10:51

trijntjejerry-ing: why not do a normal install?10:53
jerry-ingVbotka it would seem i am connected http://www.imgpaste.net/image/doG210:54
ikoniaICMP is not a http request10:55
jerry-ingtrigntje because on this datcenter pxe is the only option10:55
ikoniait can't resolv / connect to the archive / mirror you're hitting10:55
ikoniaI suspect it's a proxy access based environment and http is blocked ?10:55
jerry-ingJust a sec10:56
ikoniaor maybe DNS/53 is blocked unless you use supplied resolvers,10:56
ikoniaso you can ping an IP, but you can't use it as a resolver10:56
jerry-ingIkonia just a sec10:57
jerry-ingIkonia dns and http are confirmed working http://www.imgpaste.net/image/dpI710:59
ikoniathat's now10:59
ikoniabut at the time it wants them it's not10:59
ikonialooking at the error - it gets some of the repos, but then fails due to dns11:01
jerry-ingOkay so with out rebooting is there a way to apt-get -f install the /target installation? 0.o11:01
ikoniaworking out why that dns is failing is the problem11:01
ikoniayou really need it to work at install time11:01
ikoniatrace why the resolver is dropping out11:01
ikoniathe other option is to pxe boot a normal ubuntu image11:02
ikoniarather than the minimal which needs the internet11:02
ikoniathe normal image will have the packages local11:02
jerry-ingikona wouldn't that take a long time11:02
ikoniawon't what take a long time ?11:02
jerry-ingyes btw auto correct did that11:03
jerry-inghow would i trace the resolver dropping out?11:03
ikoniayou'd have to be interactive with it, look at what's happening as you did it11:04
ikoniathats why it maybe easier to pxeboot a normal ubuntu image11:04
ikoniathat way there is no need for the net11:04
jerry-ingLol redo while running wireshark... yeah more easy the other way11:05
jerry-ingwell if the base system is installed could i just install the bootloader , finnish install reboot then fix it?11:07

Guest20476Hey guys! I am trying to install this distro called Remix OS. It is designed only to be run from an external device. I see that people managed to get it running by dual booting though. So my question is this...I want to use ubuntu to encrypt the HD during the installation of Ubuntu on the entire disk...then from within ubuntu set up everything so I install Remix OS. But then I want to *remove* ubuntu and retain the encryption tha11:59

themapplzHi everybody - I'm new to this channel, but hope you perhaps can help me. I'm trying to redirect incoming sound from an http stream to pyAudio - what's the best way to do this?12:03
bekksthemapplz: Thats our way of solving a specific problem - which problem is it?12:04
themapplzyeah well it seems pyaudio is only able to take a file or the microphone as input12:04
=== Guest36616 is now known as ghazalmf
themapplzso i was thinking to maybe redirect to http input stream to a /dev of some sort and then use that as input12:05
themapplzdon't know if that makes sense12:05
bekksthemapplz: Actually not.12:06
=== ghazalmf is now known as Guest18192
bekksthemapplz: What is the actual problem? What do you want to do, actually?12:06
themapplzit should be possible with jack12:06
themapplzi have a python script that listens to the microphone with pyAudio12:06
themapplzthe things is,12:06
themapplzthe audio is coming in from an http mp3 stream12:06
themapplzso i either have to decode the stream, redirect it from the decoder as audio to the mic12:07
bekksthemapplz: So you are downloading an mp3 file?12:07
themapplzor do it some smarter way12:07
=== Guest18192 is now known as ghazalmf
themapplzwell it's a live stream12:07
themapplzfrom a darkice server12:08
bekksthemapplz: So you have a live stream. And?12:08
Becky2How might one find out the name of their laptop? Mine says Toshiba in big letters, but is there a way to tell the exact model?12:08
themapplzthe live stream is from a microphone on a rpi12:08
themapplzsent with darkice to an ubuntu server12:08
themapplzwith icecast12:08
themapplzso i can listen to the ubuntu server's decoded audio12:09
cfhowlettBecky2, sudo lshw12:09
bekksthemapplz: Can you please stop using enter as a punctuation sign?12:09
themapplzenter as a punctuation sign?12:09
themapplzwhat's that? sorry12:09

themapplzoh sorry12:10
=== mathisen is now known as Mathisen
bekksthemapplz: So you have a livestream? And? (skipping all that irrelevant information) - what do you want to do with that stream now, and why?12:10
themapplzso yeah the ubuntu server receives the http stream and, for now, i have an icecast server decode it to listen to it, but i actually need to redirect this audio into pyAudio12:11
bekksthemapplz: How about just answering my question?12:11
tomreynthemapplz: here's a different take on ths same: why do you need it in PyAudio, what is it going to do with it? maybe you could use a different application which is better suited for what you are trying to achieve (and have not yet discussed)12:13
themapplzwhat I want to do with my stream is use it in a python script using pyaudio12:13
bekksthemapplz: And what does this script do?12:13
themapplzthe pyaudio uses matplotlib to calculate FFTs and peaks12:14
bekksRecord the stream, run pyaudio on the recorded file.12:14
themapplzright, but it's a continuous live stream12:14
bekksRight, but you arent wathcing the FFT and peaks for 24h. :)12:15
themapplzyea, thats the plan12:15
cfhowlettthemapplz, sounds like a pretty specific use of python which leads me to suggest you ask #python12:15
themapplzi hear you12:15
klemvorI everybody, I am trying to installa Ubuntu 15.10 on acer netbook with 32bit efi and 64bit system. Instead of flashing directly the iso image of ubuntu using dd I have tried to copy all its files on the usb stick formatted with fat32.

Once putted in the Acer the grub started and I c12:16
cfhowlettklemvor, whoa son12:16
themapplzi just had some crazy idea that perhaps it could be done in alsa, to redirect the incoming audio to the mic.. or maybe jack12:16
bekksklemvor: Thats not going to work at all.12:16
tomreynthemapplz: padsp *might* be of help (depending on how pyaudio works, which i dont know), check its man page.12:16
cfhowlett!klemvor | explain: 32bit efi and 64 bit system??WHAT?12:16
themapplzoh cool12:16
DrManhattanhow can I force my 14.04 desktop system to delay initialization of the network connections until I log in?12:17
cfhowlettklemvor, for that matter, I'm pretty sure there ARE no 32bit efi capable computers as 64 bit is required?12:17
cfhowlettDrManhattan, remove network manager from your autostarting applications12:17
DrManhattanI have my eth0 connect to my VPN automatically, so it needs me to log in in order to access my keychain12:17
themapplzthanks so much guys.. sorry about perhaps being unclear12:18
DrManhattanno can do cfhowlett, PIA requires the use of network manager at this time. Any way to make Network Manager delay init until login?12:18
klemvorcfhowleett! that's kind strange, but it is so! someone choose to put a 32bit efi bootloader on a 64 system! by the way I am following this guide https://gist.github.com/franga2000/2154d09f864894b8fe8412:19

ikoniacfhowlett: I need to look at it as I don't know what/how it works, but it's certainly worth a look12:51

mcphailtomreyn: thanks for that command. Reminds me why I lurk on this channel :)12:55
Volkodavtomreyn: That's from upgrades from previous versions I guess - my concern now is to get the system updated and upgrade this box to 16.04 once the beta is out12:55
tomreynVolkodav: i also use "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install apt-show-versions && apt-show-versions | grep -v uptodate" to identify packages which are not backed by an apt source. and i use "apt-cache policy" to see which apt sources are currently in use. and "apt-cache policy <packagename>" to understand which apt source a package candidate would be installed form, and why.12:56

Someguy123I was expecting a 300-400mb minimum image12:58
tomreyneveryone now looking into ubuntu-support-status: be aware this tool considers any 3rd-party repository to be unsupported. also --show-unsupported will not list packages which were supported in the past but are no longer supported now. use --show-all for those.12:58
* mcphail thinks the ops should add that one to the /topic12:59
Volkodavtomreyn: once i run all that - how do I resolve the dependency issue - get rid of all unsupported packages? That will bork the whole system down I guess12:59
tomreynVolkodav: cleaning up your packages and ensuring you only have the package versions installed which are available on your current ubuntu release is actually precisely what you should do while planning for an upgrade.12:59
ikoniamcphail: looks like it could be a good one for sure13:00

tomreynVolkodav: for now, concentrate on removing packages which have no apt source available (apt-show-versions | grep -v uptodate). Then focus on replacing (such as by downgrading) packages which are on a version not available in your ubuntu release (packages listed under "no longer downloadable" in the "ubuntu-support-status --show-unsupported" output).13:03
Someguy123Marcel_T4: post your vagrantfile13:05
Someguy123and the command you're using to launch it13:05
tomreynVolkodav: finally consider, for each of the packages considered to be "Unsupported" in "ubuntu-support-status --show-unsupported" output as to whether you still need this package. those are packages which may still get community support, they are just not supported by canonical.13:05
tomreyn(such as in enterprise installations where reliable security support is considered to be even more ciritical than for the average home user)13:06
Volkodavtomreyn: is there a way to avoid all this hustle and upgrade to 16.04 or I need to upgrade the system first?13:06
Someguy123question: how is Ubuntu's docker image so small compared to standard ubuntu server? https://github.com/tianon/docker-brew-ubuntu-core/blob/be08b705c023aad665973f374d9a94cf0327497e/trusty/ubuntu-trusty-core-cloudimg-amd64-root.tar.gz13:06

tomreynVolkodav: based on this output you have removed any third party repositories. that's a good preparation for upgrading. that's only the first step, though (and one do-release-upgrade would also do for you automatically) as was said initially. you also need to actually remove unsupported packages.13:14

lotuspsychjeams_: perhaps your sound might work better if you clean install13:35
VolkodavShould I?13:35
ams_lotuspsychje: where does it say to format instead of upgrading?13:36
ams_sure it might, but I did an upgrade because I wanted to avoid doing that. Presumably if a fresh install would be in a working state it's possible to get my current install to a working state.13:36
tomreynVolkodav: does it say why? and if you run sudo "dpkg --configure -a", does it report an error?13:36
tomreynVolkodav: which of my two questions did you just respond to?13:37

Becky_I was on here earlier talking about wifi troubles with a Toshiba laptop, running Ubuntu 14.o4. Wifi works fine on my parent's laptops, but not on mine. I deleted the wifi connection and was able to put the password to reconnect back again, and it looks like wifi is connected, but the internet still times out every time. I put my stuff on a question site, but I thought maybe you could take a look see and tell me what it might be.14:20
Bassemlotuspsychje, it says command not found14:20
tomreynVolkodav: just rebooting wont fix it, only rebooting and having your file system checked at that time will14:20

tomreynVolkodav: fsck. you can alternatively boot into the emergency menu and select fsck there14:22
Volkodavtomreyn: is in grub menu or do I have to call it manually somehow?14:22
VolkodavOk I got it14:22
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot14:22
tomreyn<tomreyn> Volkodav: sudo touch /forcefsck , then reboot14:22
HendlMaxOerHeks: Thank you. I haven't bought it yet. I wanted know if it works and how well it works. I did find positive reports on the older model 610 though14:23
tomreyn... but selecting the emergency option from grub menu and doing fsck on the next menu should work, too14:23

Becky_My parents got a new dsl router and now my ubuntu 14.04 toshiba laptop can't get wifi signal.15:05
k1l_Becky_: open the network manager. then delete the old wifi. then search fr the new wifi and add that, enter the password.15:06
Becky_K1l_ Thanks, but I already tried that.15:07
k1l_Becky_: and what is the issue now?15:08
Becky_k1l_ the wifi looks like it is connecting, but all the internet connections time out.15:09
k1l_Becky_: is it connected to the router? can you show the output of "dmesg" in a pastebin?15:10
Becky_ok brb with a pastebin of dmesg15:11
k1l_Becky_: we need the output after the try of connection with the router15:12
OerHeksuse the cable first, to see if the router does work properly15:12
k1l_it was told other devices can connect.15:12
Becky_the dmesg output is very large...15:13
k1l_Becky_: that is why i said pastebin service15:13

cappicardgood morning. I'm attempting to get openchange working on ubuntu 15.10. every time I try to connect to it from openchangeclient, samba keeps crashing with "storage backend initialization failed" no matter if I use ldb or mysql for my backend.15:15

senapsany help for me???? fixing my webcam? it doesn't seem to work :(15:22
senapssearched a lot, but nothing helped me...15:22
Becky_K1l_ did my pastebin show the problem?15:24
iwanttolinuxikonia: I've always drove a volvo and got used to its features and UI, which car should I buy now? Any car that's not VW15:24
ikoniaiwanttolinux: what I want and what I like is different to what you want and like15:24
iwanttolinuxikonia: i'm sorry but i still can't make a decision on my own15:24
ikoniaiwanttolinux: try some - see what you like15:24
k1l_Becky_: yes. seems like an issue with the realtek wifi card. i am searching what to do15:25
iwanttolinuxikonia: what would be closest to sublime's UI15:25
Becky_iwanttolinux you can just download a few different distros and run them as a live CD on your computer without installing anything permanent until you find one you like.15:25
k1l_Becky_: did you use wep or wpa1 wifi encryption on your old router? seems like there is not that issue. but that is unsecure to run today. so i look for a fix15:25
ikoniaiwanttolinux: try some, see what you like15:26
ikonia(or what you don't like)15:26
Becky_k1l_ I am not sure about the encryption style on the old router. I never paid attention to that sorry.15:26
k1l_Becky_: you could try to install a newer kernel for the LTS. so that ships modern drivers most time.15:27
Becky_k1l_ what is the LTS please?15:27
jarnosDo you need a separate boot partition when using gpt partition table with classic bios system? Is it enough to set the root partition have bios_grub flag?15:28
k1l_the 14.04 ubuntu is LTS which means it gets 5 years support. but for working with modern hardware you can install a kernel from ubuntu 15.10 and such.15:28
ikoniaa seperate boot partition can make things a lot easier15:28
ikoniajarnos: it's totally up to you though, you don't need one15:28
jarnosikonia, how can it make things easier?15:29
=== ghazalmf is now known as Guest6765
k1l_Becky_: run a "sudo apt update && sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-wily"15:29
ikoniajarnos: if you have a damaged system, you still have /boot protected enough to boot to repeiar15:29
Becky_ah long term support thanks. I will try doing as you suggest. Thanks k1l_15:30
k1l_after the install you need to reboot. then you can test if that worked15:31
Becky_ok. I will come back and tell you how it went if you are still here k1l_15:31

ioriabaxx   it's the first command  sudo apt-get remove virtualbox virtualbox-4.* virtualbox-5.015:48

k1l_farooghkz: please pastebin16:18
abhi_ya but can u explain a little more i mean if a version is not supported then that means it is not going to work properly?16:18

|TheWolf|Hi! Out of curiosity, I wanted to test the live kernel patching introduced in the new kernel, so I installed the 4.2.0-18 kernel from the trusty repositories, rebooted and then installed the linux-generic-lts-wily package. However, uname -a still says I'm on 4.2.0-18, not 4.2.0-25. Is there anything else I have to do to trigger the patching?16:28

tomreyn|TheWolf|: i don't actually know how live kernel patching works in ubuntu, if it already works there. but i doubt it works the way you seem to expect it to work, i.e. i don't expect that installing a different kernel image will result in this being switched to during runtime.16:32
|TheWolf|tomreyn : yeah, I kinda thought it wouldn't be that easy, but I didn't find any info on how to do it, so I just tried it.16:32
pc_magasOn the front I have a hisser and on the back no sound. It just gives the output from the mic.16:32
tomreyn|TheWolf|: live kernel patching support in linux is just the kernel's side allowing some additional utility to apply (security, could be other, but that's the primary purpose) patches to the existing / running kernel image in memory.16:34
jarnos_tomreyn, unfortunately, I have some issues with chromium-browser generally and in 15.10 specifically: Some WWW-sites, such as http://www.katsomo.fi does not work by chromium-browser, at least, if Chrome is not installed. chromium-browser seems to start slowly in 15.10 and does not respond nicely to custom dpi setting (in Xubuntu's settings).16:34
jarnos_tomreyn, how do you install chrome so that it gets security updates (as such)?16:37
tomreynjarnos_: hmm this web page seems to generally work here (and play videos) in chromium-browser, but i'm on 14.0416:37
centrichello guys, i need help regarding RAM management , my laptop got 4 GB of RAM which I use for android development.which runs following applications:1.android-studio 2.firefox 3.genymotion 4.ubuntu-server(on virtualbox)  now free RAM is very low i.e 120-200 MB16:38
centriccan anyone help ? except solution of upgrading my RAM.16:38
SchrodingersScat!ram | centric, linux like using ram, ram is fast16:39
ubottucentric, linux like using ram, ram is fast: If you are wondering why some tools report your system has very little free memory, have a look at http://www.linuxatemyram.com/16:39
tomreynjarnos_: you would need to ask google (the company) about this, since this is not a supported ubuntu package.16:39
SchrodingersScatjarnos_: I thought that the non-free google installer already added its own repo upon install for that.16:39
centricSchrodingersScat: i'm aware of that. but system hangs a bit. gradle takes too much time to execute app.16:40
ubottuswap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info16:42
SchrodingersScatyou can set swapiness, if you think that's the problem16:42
centricSchrodingersScat: is increasing  swapiness will solve my problem?16:42
SchrodingersScatNo, wouldn't say that, but you tried for a factoid about it, up to you.16:43
SchrodingersScatIf you think it's slow when it tries to swap, but then if it needs to swap maybe you want it to, idk16:43
centricisnt there is any RAM management tool in ubuntu?16:44
centricbesides htop and top16:44
llldinoThe kernal?16:44
tomreynSchrodingersScat: most ram will be consumed by your VMs there. consider reducing their memory footprint. if that's not an option consider switching to a different virtualization or containerization software stack. finally you can probably save a good a mount of memory by switching to a light-weight (or no) window manage / desktop and from 64-bit to 32-bit linux.16:44
jarnos_SchrodingersScat, it installs a repo, but so far the updates of the package have been in the section of regular updates in Software updater, not in the section of security updates. So I wonder, if I install only the updates in the security updates section, do I get security updates installed for Google Chrome?16:45
tomreyncentric: actually what i just said was meant for you16:45
tomreynsorry SchrodingersScat16:45
camason_Evening. I have a Ubuntu server setup with Wine and an X11 app. I'd like the server to boot, auto login to a user, start xvfb, run the app, and have a VNC connection available for remote control if needed. Any thoughts on the best approach?16:45
centrictomreyn: i'm using vb with given 512 mb RAM which works fine is dere any other alternatives?16:46
SchrodingersScatjarnos_: oh, k, then yeah that's something up to google.  I wouldn't notice because I update everything, so wouldn't distinguish between security or not, not sure if google distinguishes.16:46
llldinocamason_, Just write yourself a shells script and have it execute on booting16:46
camason_could I just launch xvfb, then launch the app, then launch VNC server - all as a specific user account?16:47
hansolwhere is the root www directory in ispconfig 3 ?16:48
tomreyncentric: "vb" is?16:48
jarnos_tomreyn, do you also have Chrome installed? It may not show as many videos by chromium as by chrome. Mainly adds and news. IIRC I had this so in 14.04.16:49
tomreyn!server | camason_16:49
ubottucamason_: Ubuntu Server Edition is a release of Ubuntu designed especially for server environments, including a server specific !kernel and no !GUI. The install CD contains many server applications. Current !LTS version is !Trusty (Trusty Tahr 14.04) - More info: http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/serveredition - Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide - Support in #ubuntu-server16:49
camason_yup, I'm aware of that thanks. I just have 1 X based app that I can run without gui, just basic X display using xvfb16:50
SchrodingersScatcamason_: Should be easy enough to start it with xvfb-run, I've not connected to an xvfb window while it was running though.16:51
tomreynjarnos_: i don't have chrome installed, and it's not supported here. You can most definitely get chromium to work well for general use on every LTS release, possibly on other releases, too.16:51
camason_I'll give that a go SchrodingersScat . I already have xvfb working with vnc - simple as specifyng the display16:52
minas114I want to remove the default bluetooth application. What is its name?16:55
jarnos_tomreyn, I know, but I contacted the customer service of the website before, and they told they don't support chromium-browser, but chrome.16:56
jarnos_tomreyn, I which I knew what caused it the some videos did not work in chromium-browser, if Chrome was not installed.16:57
SchrodingersScatcamason_: do you use x11vnc?16:57
camason_I was, yes16:57
tomreynjarnos_: sorry, can't help you there (but remember i told you videos work on chromium-browser on 14.04)16:59
jarnos_tomreyn, can you watch e.g. http://www.katsomo.fi/#!/jakso/556222?toista beyond the initial adds?17:02
excelsiorahi, I was running an emulator that used the full screen, had to kill -9 it when it broke/glitched, but the resolution did not go back to the way it was. how do I learn how to fix this myself?17:03
sgo11hi, I am running lubuntu 14.04. I just installed kubuntu-desktop and did reboot. but nothing happens. how can I change everything to kde? kdm is not installed by the package kubuntu-desktop. should I install it manually? thanks.17:03
tomreynjarnos_: there's no video embedded on this page that i can see.17:03
tomreynexcelsiora: read up on xrandr17:04
SchrodingersScatcamason_: it's not letting me connect, it gives me the default :99 screen, is that no good, or do I need another option?17:04
camason_SchrodingersScat, I was running xvfb manually, launching the app into that display, then starting VNC remotely. I'm just trying it with xvfb-run, but failing17:04
CounterStrikeGood morning everyone - I'm hoping someone can help me with a mouse problem i'm having.17:05
tomreynsgo11: the desktop you wish to run can be selected on the login screen.17:05
jarnos_tomreyn, oh, I can see the video by Chrome. But it may also be that the video's visibility is restricted geographically.17:05
CounterStrikeI've installed Lubuntu onto an old lapttop so that I can play Counterstrike (i'm snowed in away from my main PC), and everything is running fine, however, my mouse 'stutters' and stops moving horizontally if i make a very fast movement17:06
excelsioratomreyn: thanks, delete the xml file in the .config/? I suppose it will create a new one.17:06
CounterStrikeSlow movements register fine. The mouse only freezes if I jerk it very quickly17:06
camason_SchrodingersScat aha, -f $HOME/.Xauthority17:06
sgo11tomreyn, but the login screen is running lightdm, right? I want to change everything to kubuntu. I don't think kde is using lightdm by default.17:06
CounterStrikeis there a setting that i need to change, or is this the mouse itself?17:06
mcphailCounterStrike: you could try adjusting mouse sensitivity and acceleration with the lxinput package. Might help?17:08
tomreynexcelsiora: i'm not sure which configuration file you are referring to. xrandr is a command which allows you to set the X resolution (amongst other). you can use it to set your desired resolution in situations where you need to kill an application which set it to a different resolution.17:08
SchrodingersScatcamason_: that goes in the xvfb-run ?17:08
CounterStrike@mcphail, I will t ry that, thank you.17:08
camason_SchrodingersScat yeah17:08
tomreynsgo11: if you would like to install kdm, then i suggest you do this. ;)17:08
SchrodingersScatcamason_: default: ./.Xauthority,  so then how do I patch in?17:09
camason_ssh user@host -L 5900:localhost:5900 'x11vnc -localhost -display :99'17:09
tomreynsgo11: and yes lightdm is used by default on ubuntu17:10
CounterStrikeAdjusting the acceleration to the lowest setting (my preferred option), it seems to have made it worse17:11
CounterStrikeis there a way to set the mouse to raw input?17:11
CounterStrikeit gets better with higher acceleration, but acceleration is not wanted in Counterstrike17:12
xangua What was the bug referring to the update manager suggestion to upgrade to 15.04 from 14.04?17:12
sgo11tomreyn, thanks for your reply. I just want to know the exact steps to switch from ubuntu to kubuntu. because I never use kubuntu so everything is guess. I did google, but no luck. everybody is talking about installing kubuntu-desktop. That is not enough.17:13
CounterStrikesgoll, just back up your files and download the ISO for kubuntu and install it.17:14
SilencedCounterStrike: ? Are you playing cs in ubuntu ?17:14
CounterStrikeI am trying to Silenced. I am snowed away from my main PC, and need to quelch my addiction. The hardware i have is really bad, so my only option was to install Lubuntu17:15
CounterStrikeThe game runs great on steam, but my mouse isnt behaving properly17:15

CounterStrikeits just my mouse, it 'freezes' if i try to move quickly17:16
SilencedCounterStrike: Which package manager ?17:16
tomreynsgo11: i don't know what exactly you want, so i will keep on guessing. maybe you want to "tasksel kubuntu-full"17:17
SilencedCounterStrike: Do u face any resolution issues with CS ?17:18
CounterStrikeI'm running it in a non-native 4:3 resolution (1024x768), with the black bars on the sides17:19
CounterStrikeits working well17:19
CounterStrikethe mouse issue is happening outside of Counterstrike too.17:20
SilencedCounterStrike: What is the video rendering method ? OpenGL or D3D ?17:20
CounterStrikeit feels like a software thing... like it thinks i dont really want to move my mouse that fast but i do17:20
SchrodingersScatcamason_: cool, got it to work on one machine, think I needed to add something, -s '-ac'17:23
SilencedI don't face any issue regarding with mouse . Its working fine that way17:23
mcphailCounterStrike: I think it must be hardware related. I haven't had any issues playing CS on several machines17:23
pc_magasHello fellows I changed motherboard on my pc and after that I have no sound on Ubuntu 14.0417:23
CounterStrikeMy mouse issue is happening even outside the game17:23
CounterStrikeIf i try to move the cursor too fast it will 'freeze'17:23
sandahIf I install the 16.04 daily should I be able to upgrade it to the release or will I likely have to re-install?17:23
CounterStrikeit could be hardware related. its an old apple mouse from the mid-00's17:24

OerHeksubuntu474, try apt-get install ubuntu-desktop18:54
ioriamike3,   i told you ... https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack18:54
random_user_01ubuntu474, should be. but if you use lubunu, was there a reason to use one of the least recourse heavy DE18:54
ubuntu474OerHeks: It seems to be a very large package. Are you sure?18:55
ioriamike3,   it means probably that has recentrly installed18:55
ubuntu474random_user_01: Honestly, I like the look and feel of Unity.18:55
mike3ioria I'm reading on it. Looks like it was bundled . My one server has been up for a couple years. which is probably why it remained on that kernel.18:55
mike3whatever, doesn't amtter to me.18:55
OerHeksubuntu474, yes, unity is part of ubuntu desktop, not a single package18:55
Delta706I have installed MySQL 5.6 but cannot get the corresponding headers18:55

random_user_01i guess it must be the default to use the most space, then it remembers firefox last position and jumps to that19:01
nchambershello! I am trying to access my vps via vnc to setup the installation of ubuntu 15.04. whenever I do this I get Server disconnected (code: 1000, reason: Target closed). is there a way to fix this?19:04
k1l_random_user_01: as standard it will be placed as it was last time.19:05
random_user_01k1l_, yes, but before that, it gets placed by compiz "smartly" which is a oversight by ubuntu19:06
random_user_01it should come preconfigured to ignore ff19:06
k1l_random_user_01: do you use the "drag to the edge/corner" tiling? that is somewhat different from the "i size and place the windows by manual dragging". at least for firefox (on my system)19:07
ttalwhat does the "time" portion do in the "sudo apt-get update && time sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" command?19:08
bekksttal: it prints timing information after the execution of sudo apt-get dist-upgrade19:09
ttalbekks: thanks a lot!19:09
random_user_01k1l_, well, its enabled as per default, but i did not use it for firefox. it will remember the position of the window like you said, but apply that after it is placed by compiz by whatever setting is used19:09
k1l_random_user_01: yes. same for me19:10
random_user_01k1l_, i know its a little thing, but its wrong. i have to find a setting to prevent ff to use last position19:11
k1l_random_user_01: it doesnt respawn as the "use half screen" like i use it with the tiling setting when it was closed but starts with the other size.19:11
xanguarandom_user_01: you could install compiz settings manager , don't remember how the plugin is called but you can configure it there, add an exception or just disable it completely19:13

hheellldino, well.... some action need complex customisation19:15
random_user_01k1l_, i already installed it and looked for a solution. you can set a different behavior for firefox there, but i would prefer to disable the last position for firefox instead19:15
roothorickwhen multiple interfaces are active that have a potential default route, and the one that has the current default route goes down, is the new default route set before or after if-post-down.d is run?19:15
llldinohhee, What do you mean?19:16
random_user_01k1l_, there is a file that is responsable for this. i try to make it read only19:16
k1l_random_user_01: sorry, i am not too much into that stuff.19:16
random_user_01k1l_, no problem, i will find something19:16
k1l_random_user_01: and the thing is: compiz is kind of end of life since with the new unity they will not use that and others like kde or gnome dont use compiz anymore.19:17
random_user_01k1l_, cool with me. but i heard that 4 years ago i think for the first time. maybe this time its really over19:18
k1l_random_user_01: its just that most things there are in "keeping the state" mode and not really going to rewrite stuff with a big effort.19:19
k1l_just warning you :)19:20
paracusiahello friends, is there any way to see the battery-cycles of an iphone4s with ubuntu/linux?19:22

Guest26009do non DE edition XPS run linux well?21:31
TJ-axisys: the reason I think it may be a fake is that when they're formatted and data is written beyond their real size (lets say its really 512MB) then the data written by the OS to 512MB+ wraps to the start of the disk again. They 'work' until they've been written beyond the true size. In these cases the firmware in them is deliberately (fraudulently) reporting incorrect sizes.21:31

noahmg123yigal: hm... Yep. I guess I will just have to wait for it to finish.23:44
yigalnoahmg123: yikes, unfortunately I'm not certain I can give you any better advice23:45
noahmg123yigal: As I said, there is no issue, it is just taking a while.23:45
yigalnoahmg123: good :D23:45
tomreynnoahmg123: if the metapackage you are installing was ubuntu-desktop, you would run "apt-cache depends ubuntu-desktop" to see the dependencies23:46
tomreynthis can be done in parallel to the curren tinstallation23:46
noahmg123tomreyn: cool, will try on the meta-package. Will it list it in the list it should install?23:46
yigaltomreyn: that's not the question, the question is what order are the packages installed in, other than a dependency tree23:46
tomreynnoahmg123: sorry, i wouldn't know23:47
noahmg123tomreyn: that's ok. :)23:47
yigaltomreyn: yes, it's quite interesting23:47
kriskropdassuming `man` is using `less` as a pager - is there a way to pass a search argument to the `man` command? `man man` doesn't seem to imply it's a feature that's built in23:47
m000gletomreyn: I've just tried "update-menus" and "update-desktop-database", with no luck23:47
artoiskriskropd: /foo23:48
PhilippeVienneHello, how to make an autologin with xdm ?23:48
artoiskriskropd: whatis, apropos, you can grep man, too, if you use it right23:48
yigalkriskropd: or backwards search '?bar'23:48
artoisPhilippeVienne: only one user on the box?23:48
yigalartois: man -k23:48
artoisor forward /foo and then 'N'23:48
tomreynm000gle: okay, i'm afraid i have no better suggestions. i don't use unity myself.23:48
artoisyigal: it's kriskropd23:48
wahyuhow to hack wirelles wpa2-psk :P23:48
PhilippeVienneartois: Yes, but another user exist for sudo rights23:48
yigalartois: my apologies sir23:49
m000gletomreyn:  The reason why I want to avoid either the log out/in or "unity --replace" is that the former will close anything that I'm working on, while the latter seems to be about 50/50 whether Unity actually comes back to life afterwards23:49
kriskropdartois yigal I think you are talking about within the less pager already loading - for instance 'less -ippattern file'23:49
yigalkriskropd: man -k == apropros23:49
m000gletomreyn: Cool.  Thanks for your help23:49
yigalkriskropd: no, the last example certainly not23:49
yigalkriskropd: although that might not answer your question23:49
kriskropdit doesn't - apropos is something else, I think - just a short description of a manpage23:50
artoisyigal: just sayin'23:50
yigalkriskropd: no all man pages associated with the given word, e.g. 'apropos word'23:50
artoiskriskropd: you want to grep man?23:50
yigalkriskropd: if you want to grep just use, man <X> | grep <word>23:51
k1lwahyu: that is not in the focus of this channel23:51
kriskropdartois: well, when you use `less -ippattern file` - it loads the file in less automaticall and immediately reacts as if you had searched '/pattern' in the pager23:51
kriskropdim trying to do that with man23:51
artoiskriskropd: man foo | less -ippattern23:52
artoispipes, use'm23:52
kriskropdah, ok23:52
kriskropdyeah that works, ty23:52
kriskropddidn't think i could pipe man into less o.o23:52
yigalkriskropd: yes, do 'less | less' :)23:52
yigal== more, ok I'll stop23:53
tomreynkriskropd: a clerner way to do this would be: PAGER=cat man bash | grep ^BUGS23:54
tomreynor: PAGER='less -p^BUGS' man bash23:56
yigalor just man -P bash23:57
yigaloh that's just using cat, for the man, excuse me tomreyn23:57
