Steve_Hi all, quick question. Can I still upgrade from 14.10 to 15.04 via the command line? 'sudo do-release-upgrade -d' returns "No new release found"11:52
ubottuEnd-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades11:54
lordievaderSteve_: It is probably easier to wait for the release of 16.04 or reinstall to 15.10 directly.11:54
Steve_I want to keep the settings, but I'm hoping to go all the way up to 16.04 beta11:55
lordievaderHmm, upgrading from 14.04 will only be possible when 16.04.1 is released...12:26
ikonialordievader: seems very reasonable12:34
ikoniafrom memory the same happened with 14.04 and maybe even 12.0412:34
ikoniapretty such it wasn't in place for 10.0412:34
lordievaderikonia: Yes, the reasoning was based on the upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04.12:35
eeoshi everybody! I am having problems in mounting the windows partitions at boot ....13:13
lordievaderDo you get errors?13:14
ShinkiYou could have a look at /etc/fstab, and verify (1) directories are exist (2) UUID of devices are not changed13:17
eeosNo entry in the fstab .... I wonder why the installation did not ppick it up, and why there is no GUI to manage the automount?13:41

oikubuntu 15.1014:37
BluesKajHiyas all14:37
DarinMillerHi BluesKaj14:38
DarinMilleroi: Do you have backports ppa or the project Neon PPA enabled?14:39
BluesKajhi DarinMiller14:39
oiDarinMiller: no, just fresh installed14:40
DarinMillerAre you familiar with ppa installations? I recommend the Neon PPA as it move 15.10 to the latest QT packages and improves 15.10 stability.14:42
Maxirideis it normal that xorg is taking up 1.3GB of ram?14:42
ubottuProject Neon provides set of daily builds of KDE and releated modules | See https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Kubuntu/ProjectNeon | More support in #project-neon14:42
DarinMillerNeon launchpad PPA website: https://launchpad.net/~neon/+archive/ubuntu/ppa14:43
eeosDarinMiller: how unstabe is it?14:44
danwould neon ppa be too much for a daily use desktop?14:45
DarinMillerIn my experience, it fixes several issues in 15.10 including frequent plasmashell crashes.  Not quite as stabe as KDE 4, but much better than stock 15.10.14:45
MaxirideDarinMiller: I'm with backports ppa and sometimes I still get a segmentation fault crash of plasmashell btw14:46
Maxirideand every time I'm unable to rebort it also.. debug symbols package are needed but when I go to install them using the crash report windows it says that no packages can be found.14:46
Maxirideif anyone knows what does it mean, showing detailed memory information of xorg with ksysguard i see that most of the ram is taken by 1337912 KB[heap]14:48
DarinMillerBackports is not current and the Neon packages improve plasma stability.14:48
clivejoDarinMiller: its not far off curent !14:49
Maxirideit provides plasma 5.5.314:49
Maxiridenot that bheind I guess14:49
clivejoand 5.5.4 is in landing14:49
DarinMillerOne issue I experience is kwallet hangs on reboot causing every dependent pack- including networkmanager and chrome-to hang for ~30s.14:50
Maxiridemeanwhile i'll try rebooting to see if xorgs cleans up a bit14:51
DarinMillerkilling kwattet fixes the hang and everything is back to normal.14:51
DarinMiller^killing kwallet14:54
oiDarinMiller: hmmm, apt-get update get this: http://ppa.launchpad.net/neon/ppa/ubuntu/dists/wily/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found14:56
oiDarinMiller: the ppa is old, last thing they admit is raring14:58
DarinMilleroi: Did you add this repository?  sudo apt-add-repository ppa:neon/ppa14:58
oiDarinMiller: yes, I did.14:59
eeosthere is no Storage Device Manager in kubuntu?14:59
DarinMilleroi: my bad!15:01
DarinMillerFollow these directions here: http://neon.kde.org.uk/download15:01
oiDarinMiller: last updates in ppa are 49 weeks ago15:02
BluesKajseeos, system settings >removable devices15:03
eeosBluesKaj: there is no such a thing in system settings15:05
BluesKajeeos,which kubuntu?15:06
eeosBluesKaj: 15.10 64bit15:08
DarinMillereeos: Removable devices arrived with either Backports ppa or KDE Neon (not sure which)15:10
eeosBluesKaj: sorry, had to reboot15:13
BluesKajI'm running 16.10, but that's surprising that there's no removable ndevices as default in 15.1015:13
eeosBluesKaj: so no removable devics in system settings in 15.10 64bit15:14
BluesKajeeos, not sure15:14
lordievaderBluesKaj: 16.10? Surely you mean 16.04 ;)15:14
BluesKaji'm always running a ppa or 215:15
BluesKajyeah , 16.04 ,...typos15:15
DarinMillerOn my 16.04 box, I do not have the landing ppa enabled and the Removeable Devices option is missing (still Plasma 5.4.3).  My 15.10 boxes all have backports and Neon and Removable Devies shows up in the hw section.15:16
BluesKajDarinMiller, i have the landing ppa15:17
DarinMillerBlueKaj: I assume 16.04 landing has Plasma 5.5.3?15:18
clivejoDarinMiller: 5.5.415:18
clivejoand its in backports landing too15:18
DarinMillerah yes.15:19
BluesKajand 5.5.415:20
eeosBluesKaj: me neither .... a bit chuffed by this new version, I have come backk to kubuntu after around a year15:25
eeosso how do I solve this removabel device issue?15:25
BluesKajeeos, external drive or extra hdds/ssds?15:26
eeoswindows partition that does not mount at boot15:27
BluesKajeeos, is it listed in grub?15:27
eeosyes, I can boot from it15:28
BluesKajok , sudo blikd , find the entry for the windows partition, copy the uuid  and addit to fstab without the quotes like so : http://ubuntuhak.blogspot.ca/2013/07/how-to-mount-windows-partition-in.html15:31
eeosBluesKaj: aologies, I know how to add it manually, I am trying to find a GUI, this is for my wife15:32
BluesKajeeeos it should show up in dolphin places>devices once you add it and reboot15:34
BluesKajadd it to fstab that is15:34
eeosBluesKaj: I would like to enable her to do what she would prefer, but without a GUI it is a bit of a problem15:36
BluesKajdolphin is the gui15:36
eeosBluesKaj: a gui that does not allow you to decide what to mount at boot15:36
BluesKajit similar to the folder in the windows taskbar , just put dolphin in a quicklaunch in the panel15:37
DarinMillereeos: is adding a ppa an acceptable solution?15:37
eeosDragnslcr: yes15:38
eeossorry Dragnslcr .... was meant for DarinMiller15:38
DarinMillerI've been called worse :)15:38
eeosDarinMiller: ;)15:39
DragnslcrNah, it doesn't get any worse15:39
DarinMillerI am checking if Removeable Devices in in the backports ppa or KDE Neon.15:39
DragnslcrDolphin will definitely show removable devices and any mounted hard drive partitions15:40
eeosDarinMiller: thank you, I can do it .... Neon does not support 15.10 though15:40
DragnslcrI'm not certain if it will show regular hard drive partitions that aren't mounted15:40
DragnslcrYou should be able to use Partition Manager to set the mount points of partitions15:42
eeosapologies need to reboot brn .... Dragnslcr yes, but not whether it is mounted at boot or not15:42
DragnslcrI don't have any unused partitions to test it with at the moment15:43
markitI've logged but mouse does not work, what is the keyboard shortcut for K menu?15:57
markitfound, alt+f115:57
DarinMillereeos, just confirmed, Removeable devices arrives with the backports PPA on 15.10.  Assuming windows not corrupt it by leaving it in a dirty state, the automounter should work as expected.15:57
BluesKajDarinMiller, he hasn't relogged in15:59
DarinMillerBluesKaj: good catch.15:59
BluesKajDarinMiller, wonder if his issue has more to do with UEFI boot than removable devices16:00
BluesKajsays he can boot windows grub, so why the issue16:01
BluesKajfrom grub16:01

DarinMillerwhy_not: are you able to repeatably crash plasma crashes with certain actions?19:19
why_notnot reliably19:26
why_notfor a while, I would open the comic widget, and then configure.  that would be a 3-5 min wait until it crashed.  then it wasopening discover.  this time, it was while playing terraria19:27
why_notthis all started after installing kde-neon19:27
why_notalso, I have done nothing that I can tell corrected those issues.  they just stopped happening.  it's like the problem moves around19:32
DarinMillerI have seen similar behavior.  Although I was trying backports landing followed by kde neon. By the time I installed neon, everything had settled down so I assumed it was the neon packages.19:34
DarinMillerI assumed the neon packages had fixed the instabliity.19:35
why_notyeah.  I just tried to open the comic strip widget "configre setttings > get new comics" and that took ~2:30 mins to load.  Before, it was ~5 seconds.  I'm just expecting it.  Any chance 16.04 will fix this?  I might just bite the bullet and do a re-installation, but that would be a pain in the rear19:38
DarinMillerDoes anything else take a long time to open? i.e chrome or kdewallte?19:39
DarinMillertry running kwalletmanager5 from the command line....19:40
DarinMillerit should open immediately19:40
why_not21 secs "Invalid DBus reply:  QDBusError("org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply", "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.")19:43
DarinMillerif any of the above is true, kill kwallet and everything should be back to normal.  I don't think comic strip depend on kwallet though.19:44
why_notchromium took 40 secs19:44
DarinMillerEvreytime I reboot, i must kill kwallet.19:45
why_notI couldn't kill kwallet cause it stopped responding....then it just killed itself...and the keyboard was not responsive for about 20 secs19:45
why_notI just "end process" on kwallet5 and kwallet.  they went into zombie.  then chromium opened quickly, and then KDE Wallet started asking me for my password.  we're getting somewhere!19:48
why_notevery time I open chromium, it opens the KDE Wallet password prompt.19:49
DarinMillereverything should work normal until reboot.  I rarely reboot so I forgot about that issue....19:49
why_not"The application 'Chromium' has requested to open the wallet 'kdewallet'.  Please enter the password for this wallet below."19:50
DarinMillerthat normal19:50
why_notI've never used kdewallet, unless it's something that works with Thunderbird.  so I don't know what's going on with that.19:50

lordievadermarcellus: What does the konsole spit out when you start it from there?20:50
marcelluswell, ps3mediaserver does not even connect to the ps3. mediatomb does connect, but I cannot either remove what I already added, nor add new media files20:53
marcelluspsems  shows a red circle with an X inside20:54
lordievaderI don't know both programs, but they do not display any hint of an error in the Konsole?21:15
marcelluspms does not show in the console. mediatomb it shows but not possible to change the shared media21:19
lordievaderThat is not what I am asking. I suppose both programs have gui's(?), what happens when you try to change the shared media, does the konsole show permission errors or something?21:21
