barryGuys how hard to learn C? Can C be used to control some aspect in linux system00:08
Revian1I've been off Linux for a bit. I recently came back and installed Ubuntu Wily.. Ubuntu has come a long way and I haven't seen any problems. Good job, devs!00:10
SahibPrimebarry: For me, C was a medium-difficulty programming language.00:12
Revian1How do I set gthumb to be the default app that opens when doubling-clicking a picture?00:12
barrySahibPrime: Curious. If C is medium-difficulty programming language, what would you rate for Php?00:14
SahibPrimebarry: Haven't tried PHP.00:15
barryOh, okay00:15
SahibPrimeBefore learning C, I would recommend a simpler object-oriented language.00:17
squintyRevian1,  right click on filename -> properties -> open with -> set as default  etc00:18
barryIm learning Php right now00:18
Revian1squinty, Well, that was easy. Thank you!00:19
ActinalWhompI have some broken entries in my grub menu (that showed up after running boot repair). If I install windows from a disk will that "clean" the efi partition? I'm fine with losing data/reinstalling ubuntu afterwards.00:25
SahibPrimeActinalWhomp: As far as I know, Windows overwrites GRUB.00:27
SahibPrimeYou could also format the disk, and reinstall Ubuntu.00:27
barryHow I can give a user read and write access to whole /var/www/html and its sub-directories?00:27
SahibPrimechmod [username]:[username] +RW /var/www/html00:27
SahibPrimechmod [username]:[username] +RW /var/www/html/*00:27
SahibPrimeAssuming [username] is in a group named [username].00:28
SahibPrimeNo problem.00:28
barrySahibPrime: chmod myusername:www-data +RW +RW /var/www/html/* . Like this right?00:30
Revian1SahibPrime, Doesn't he need chmod -R00:31
SahibPrimeRevian1: Oh sorry, -R. I thgouth that meant remove read permissions.00:31
LapinDu72Hi guys ;)00:31
Revian1SahibPrime, No, -R means recursive. Otherwise changes will only be made to the parent dir00:32

OerHeksapt-cache showpkg libcsound64-6.001:36
dellxps15probzdoes anyone here have any experience running ubuntu on a dell XPS 15 with touchscreen. I mean specifically getting the NVidia 960M GTX to work01:37
squintydpkg -S libcsound64-6.001:37
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, I have the m3800 ... no problems with nvidia01:37
dellxps15probzwell i kind of did something stupid. I installed it, everything was running great. Then i experienced slight issues playing videos fullscreen and decided to switch back to the nouveau driver from the Nvidia-361 and you can guess what happened...01:39
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, sorry, I can't see the screen from LOL ... but yeah, you done messed up.  did you remove the drivers or only switch?01:39
dellxps15probzjust switch01:40
dellxps15probzi changed them back to nvidia from root01:40
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, from root?  from ROOT??!!!01:40
dellxps15probzhowever the display is now 640x48001:40
dellxps15probzsorry shell prompt01:40
dellxps15probznot root01:40
dellxps15probzthe display is too larhge however01:41
dellxps15probzand and nvidia-settings won't detect the display anymore01:41
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, run system > additional drivers app.  it should pick up your NVIDIA binary driver.  select one of the proprietary options01:42
dellxps15probzyeah the drivers work now, but it no longer detects my display..my beautiful, BEAUTIFUL 4K touchscreen display, even in nvidia-settings...it's displaying 640x48001:43
sector_0cfhowlett, that page doesn't tell me how to determine if my version is the latest01:43
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, well, I've never changed anything from command line.  can't advise what or why.  ask again in channel --- someone will know01:44
cfhowlettsector_0, go to the site, find your card, check the version:  http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/linux01:45
dellxps15probzi mean i'm running x now, but it's just a profoundly screwed up display of 640x48001:45
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, well you don't really NEED 4k, right?  :)01:46
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, so what prompted you to switch drivers in the first place?  your end goal??01:46
dellxps15probzyeah but I would like normal sized icons01:46
dellxps15probzthe cursor is about the size of my thumb right now01:46
dellxps15probzi wanted videos to play smoother, there was some "choppiness" in the videos in fullscreen which I did not encounter when i first set up my system (it defaulted to nouveau)01:47
dellxps15probzi just wanted that smoothness back (even if I had to sacrifice the 4K)01:48
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, you mean playing 4k videos, right?01:48
dellxps15probzany videos01:48
dellxps15probzyoutube, what have you01:48
dellxps15probzanything that was playing was rendering correctly until i made it fullscreen01:49
cfhowlettthe only hiccup I've seen on my box have been full fledged 4k videos.01:49
dellxps15probzyeah that's why I had switched to nvidia in the first place01:49
dellxps15probzbetter rendering than nouveau01:49
dellxps15probzbut there has to be a way to get my machine to detect the display again01:50
nedstarknvidia won't release the specs so nouveau will never be as good01:50
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, whatever you did at command line changed ... something would be my guess.01:51
karstensragehow do you guys manage updating the distribution all the time?01:53
karstensragedo you run LTS for 3 years, then have some migration path to next LTS?01:54
dellxps15probzall i did was sudo apt-get install nvidia-36101:54
cfhowlettkarstensrage, different strokes.  personally, I do LTS only.  LTS > LTS upgrade is fully supported.01:54
inteuskarstensrage: I backup my stuff and fresh install to the next LTS01:54
dellxps15probzand them nvidia-xconfig01:54
karstensragecfhowlett, does LTS -> LTS work reliably?01:54
karstensrageim wondering how people do this on 1000's of servers?01:55
karstensragebackup and install to fresh seems very tricky01:55
cfhowlettkarstensrage, IMO it does exactly what I need.  YMMV.  but servers tend to be conservative and go with LTS.  ask the #ubuntu-server channel for insights01:55
nedstarkthey don't.  they're using distros with 5 or 10 years until the next required upgrade01:55

Bashing-omdellxps15probz: With the 960M GTX card. Does this imply hybrid graphics ?01:57
Bashing-omdellxps15probz: ' sudo lshw -C display ' are both sets of drivers loaded ?01:59
dellxps15probzyes both sets are loaded01:59
dellxps15probzthank you so much, I will try it out and let you know in 2 mins01:59
cfhowlettBashing-om, ?  I ran that command and only the currently running driver is displayed02:00
Bashing-omdellxps15probz: Looking at the 'configuration' line ...02:01
Bashing-omcfhowlett: Ouch .. I could be out in left field .02:01
cfhowlettI thought the only driver you would see would be the currently operating driver ?02:02
Bashing-omcfhowlett: Well, yeah ... that makes the better sense . the current operating driver .02:03
cfhowlettBashing-om, so what command would list all available graphic drivers??02:03
Bashing-omcfhowlett: ' sudo ubuntu-drivers list ' to see that list .02:09
cfhowlettBashing-om, eh.... nope.  it displays the nvidia but not the intel.02:09
cfhowlettand now this problem is going to nag my brain02:10
dellxps15probzyeah i cant put my output here since im running an HTC tab however in configuration it says driver=nvidia02:11
dellxps15probzand for the intel controller it says driver=i91502:11
dellxps15probzwhich seems to be correct02:11
Bashing-omcfhowlett: Hummm .. yeah as Intel is built into the kernel ?? Take a look at the /var/log/Xorg.0.log to know what the system is doing ?02:11
cfhowlettBashing-om, huh.  this means that Intel support is rolled into the kernel?  http://paste.ubuntu.com/14990845/02:14
Bashing-omdellxps15probz: A conflict in Nvidia drivers ? what returns ' dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia ' ?02:14
dellxps15probza list of all the nvidia drivers02:15
Bashing-omcfhowlett: That is the way I read it " intel(0): Using Kernel Mode Setting driver: i915, version 1.6.0 20141121 " Kernel mode setting is a kernel thingy, no ?02:17
cfhowlettone would think.02:17
Bashing-omdellxps15probz: In that output .. the leading field is the status .. looking at 'ii' is there more than one version listed as 'ii' ?02:18
dellxps15probzBashing-om, cfhowlett, I fixed my problem. I would like to thank you both sincerely for putting your time and effort into helping me02:19
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, happy2help!02:19
dellxps15probzi ended up simply deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf and rebooting and for some reason that worked!02:19
cfhowlettdellxps15probz, you have been visited by the magical ubuntu elves then.02:19
Bashing-omdellxps15probz: great ! Not the 1st time I have seem that happen .02:20
Bashing-omdellxps15probz: I can imagine that you will need to regenerate the xorg.conf file with the nvidia driver active . ( that file gets switched out depending on which graphics set is current ) .02:26
dellxps15probzI'm actually doing that right now02:26
dellxps15probzi also think i should just purge the system of the nouveau driver02:26
dellxps15probzto prevent this from ever happening again02:27
Bashing-omdellxps15probz: Should be no need of purging nouveau as the Nvidia installer will black list it .02:28

homa_i'm not recording music02:31
cfhowletthoma_, what / how are you editing ?02:32
Bashing-omdellxps15probz: Nvidia recommends the 352 version driver : http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/97645/en-us . with some reservations have you tried the 352 version ?02:32
dellxps15probzi have, it was better than the 361. although my system now shows 361 ad recommended02:33

ynixOk, of course I know that a wipe will remove everything. Was just curious if that partition was on some rom in the computer instead of the SSD, but I guess not.03:49
cfhowlettynix, have to ask the mac or OSX experts that03:50

wtfubuntubuntu is playing psychological warfare on me.  I got it up and running (14.04).  Got my mount issue on the Plex drive fixed.  Got everything copied over.  Right as I'm ready to set it up in a corner,  headless, it won't boot without a monitor plugged in.  Luckily, Plex and Teamviewer do load as services but I don't want to have a monitor on it constantly.  Found a way to enter a dummy monitor in xorg.conf which seems to work.04:11

Gallomimiahey can someone teach me how to remount a drive with no permissions?04:38
Gallomimiathe uid's don't match. things are goofy04:39
Jordan_UGallomimia: For most filesystems there is bo such option. Please describe your problem further.04:41
GallomimiaJordan_U: the disk is hfs+ and i used to use it on my mac. all the uid's are wrong and some of the folders are marked as "i don't have permission". it's an external drive USB3, and i just want to copy files off it. even r/o would be fine04:52
cfhowlettGallomimia, suggestion: assume that you are about to destroy unrecoverable data.  image the drive and work on the image, not the source04:55
Gallomimiacopying data off and reformatting is the goal04:55
cfhowlettsame advice ...04:55
Gallomimiahm. image it. or dupe it to another disk. good idea.04:55
Gallomimiahm. but that's where i want to copy the data to04:55
Gallomimiaanyway, the drive is a nearly-full 3tb external04:56
Gallomimiai've got an unformated 3tb internal avail to do this to. should i dd the whole thing or put it in a file?04:57

cfhowlettGallomimia, wait 104:57
cfhowlettGallomimia, http://www.ehow.com/how_4924091_clone-hard-drive-linux.html05:02
Jordan_UGallomimia: What type of files are on this drive? Is preserving file attributes important? You can always use "sudo" along with cp or rsync for copying the files.05:06
Jordan_UGallomimia: (But for backing up something like an OSX installation making a simple file copy would lose important file attributes)05:07
GallomimiaJordan_U: mostly larger data files. movies, stuff like that. file attributes are irrelevant05:13

raxrbLambdaComplex: but what's wrong with this05:58
Jordan_Uraxrb: There was in your message immediately preceding mine, but I now see that was just a typo.05:58
LambdaComplexraxrb: Honestly? It seems to me like the `find` command's -regex option is really weird05:58
LambdaComplexI'm not getting the expected behavior from it either05:59
LambdaComplexSo I'd just say pipe it to grep05:59
raxrbin the above command what is the use od 2>-05:59
LambdaComplexGets red of stderr05:59
LambdaComplexI normally use it with find so I don't have to deal with permission errors :P06:00
homa_hi my friends06:00
LambdaComplexI'm like "Yeah, I know I'm not running as root, you don't have to tell me I don't have permission to look in places"06:00
raxrbgrep uses regualr expression or globsa06:00
LambdaComplexIs that a question or a statement?06:01

raxrbin it06:03
LambdaComplexThat's not the regular expression you want06:03
Jordan_Uraxrb: That will find files in /etc/ that *end* with one or more capital letter.06:03

LambdaComplexSonu: probably using scp, unless you wanna use rsync06:05
=== wahyu is now known as anggini
LambdaComplexalso, what's a "client server?"06:05
SonuLambdaComplex, scp is not working06:05
SonuLambdaComplex, client's server ?06:05
LambdaComplexSo, a server belonging to a client? Works for me06:06
LambdaComplexPerhaps your original question should have been "Why is scp not working?" though06:06
LambdaComplexIncluding an error message, of course06:06
LambdaComplexAnd the exact command you ran06:06
SonuLambdaComplex, client server:~#scp sl-004@sl-004:/path of file on my machine  /path on server to copy file06:08
SonuLambdaComplex, getting this error: "ssh: Could not resolve hostname sl-004: Name or service not known"06:09

SonuLambdaComplex, here is  exactly what i am trying "root@forums-staging2:~# scp sl-004@sl-004:/home/sl-004/Downloads/test.php  /var/www"06:13
Sonui am hitting this command with correct file name this is the correct that i have written above06:14
Jordan_USonu: That will attempt to copy "/home/sl-004/Downloads/test.php" from the host "sl-004@sl-004" to the machine from which you are running scp. Is that what you intend?06:14
SonuJordan_U," /home/sl-004/Downloads/test.php" this is my local machine path06:15
Jordan_USonu: Then your command is incorrect. Let's start by getting some things clarified. Lets use "local" to mean the machine you're sitting at and "remote" for the client's machine for now, no matter which you're running commands from.06:17
Jordan_USonu: I assume that you want to copy /home/sl-004/Downloads/test.php from your local machine to /var/www/ on the remote machine. Is that correct?06:18
Sonufirst one is my machine and second path is remote machine06:18
Jordan_USonu: And is the shell you're running scp from running on the local machine or the remote machine?06:19
Jordan_USonu: That was not a yes or no question.06:20
Jordan_USonu: Is "forums-staging2" the hostname of the local machine or of the remote machine?06:20
Sonuremote machine06:21
Sonuremote machine host name06:21
Sonuright now, i am at the root directory of remote connection.06:22
Jordan_USonu: OK. Then it looks like from what you posted earlier you're trying to run scp from within your ssh session. This is probably not a good idea as it will likely confuse you, and initiating a connection in the other direction may not be possible (due to NAT/firewall) anyway.06:22
Sonuright now, i am at the root directory of remote connection(client_server)06:22
Jordan_USonu: You should open a new terminal on your local machine and run scp from there.06:22
Sonuokay with remote host ?06:23
Jordan_USonu: I don't understand your question, could you please rephrase it?06:23
LambdaComplexSonu: What Jordan_U is saying is that you should run scp from your local machine _without_ being sshed into the client's machine06:24
Sonuokay LambdaComplex06:24
SonuJordan_U, this is example command that i got from internet "scp /home/rob/pictures/donuts/half-eaten.jpg rob@server3:/home/mywebsite.com/public_html/images/"06:25
LambdaComplexAnd actually, I don't even think we've addressed your original problem06:26
LambdaComplexWhich is that scp doesn't know the ip address you're trying to use06:26
Sonui have to run this command from my local machine and have to put username@host: in above command06:27
LambdaComplexUse the ip address, not the hostname06:27
Jordan_ULambdaComplex: My guess is that Sonu's local machine isn't even accessible from the internet, but is instead probably behind NAT at their house.06:27
LambdaComplexJordan_U: Well, that is possible too. But his original command had `sl-004@sl-004` and I doubt that he has that hostname defined in his hosts file06:28
Jordan_ULambdaComplex: I'm almost certain that's the hostname of their local machine, which of course is not available via public DNS. We know that initiating the connection from the local machine works, and have multiple indications that the reverse will fail, so I think we should just stick to connecting from local to remote rather than visa-versa.06:31
Sonuwait let me explain the whole thing..06:31
Sonui have created public key then i have connected with client's server using terminal.06:31
SonuNow i have to copy some files from my local machine to client's server.06:31
Sonui am hitting this copy command from client's server. Now i am back to my local machine.06:32
SonuNow what you are saying i have to hit this copy command from my local machine path not the client's server. Is that right ?06:33
LambdaComplexWhat we're saying is that you do not need to connect to the client's server with the ssh command prior to copying files with the scp command06:34
LambdaComplexSo, if I'm understanding you correctly, then yes, you're right06:34
=== bq_____ is now known as rrr
SonuLambdaComplex, i am trying but it says Permission denied (publickey).06:39
StmeterSonu: It is possible your SSH keys on the box may not have the proper permissions. Double check the permissions and check that they key is the correct one. If you're still having issues, try connecting to SSH using verbose mode to find a more detailed error.06:43

barrycfhowlett: Thanks btw06:48
SergioEDuran1I am using an non Unity DE with the indicators and for example the sound indicator's menu when I start playing some song (when the dropdown menu should be expanded to show the cover art) instead of grow it keeps the size and adds an up arrow at the top and an down arrow at the buttom of the  menu06:49
SergioEDuran1this is anoying06:50
Sonuwell i am on my local machine "sl-004:~$ scp /path to my file  clientusername@hostname:/path to copy file on client side"06:50

omerd34i tried a few google solutions, didn't work so far..07:05
Jordan_USeveas: I'm not convinced that it's in their bashrc and it will let them run a shell where it's easier to find more information. I was under the impression that there is no local access to this machine and that loging in via ssh (using bash by default) fails completely.07:05
omerd34does anyone have any idea how to get the link to work?07:06
Jordan_USeveas: (And busybox is a statically built binary)07:06
StmeterJordan_U, I have full command line access. Nothing is failing. Seveas, that command found it, I'm attempting to narrow down the exact location. Thank you.07:07

optimistic7how can i format the harddisk from bios?08:47
Gerowenoptimistic7: I don't believe that's possible.  A computer's BIOS is generally just some very basic settings and a set of instructions to help other software, like your operating system, communicate with the hardware.08:49
Gerowenoptimistic7: It would of course depend on the computer.  I would assume "some" of them have an option to wipe or format a drive, like mobile devices can "wipe" their storage and restore a factory default image, etc.08:49
optimistic7actually i broke my system, and i want to format my harddisk. I can't boot into my os. i have no option to delete my data?08:52

GerowenIt is basically a minimalist Linux Live CD that runs in RAM and lets you create and delete partitions, reformat drives, etc.08:53
Sailor10120hi guys, I have little problem with my Ubuntu. when I start PC, take a long time to boot. after few sec. I can see login screen, but it's jammed, After some time (about 30s) automatically started working normally and I can log in.... un ubuntu gnome I have same problem but i have to wait not just for a login screen, but also after log in, to normal desktop...08:53
optimistic7but how can i delete my old data, actually it is windows xp data?08:54
GerowenYou could even use the Ubuntu installer if you have one.  Just boot the Ubuntu disc and when it has the options to "Try" or "Install" just click "Try" and when you get to the desktop, just click on the menu and open the "Disks" program and you can use that to do the same thing.08:54
lukesoftHie guys, How do i recieve http posts in a wordpress plugin08:54
GerowenWhen you delete a partition the data is effectively deleted.  If you're really paranoid about it, I believe GParted has an option to overwrite blank space with zeroes, but don't quote me on that, I haven't used it in a while.08:55
GerowenWhen you delete a partition and create a new one in its place, when you mount it, it will be empty.08:55
optimistic7Thanx <Gerowen>08:55

cfhowlettAlexPortable, interesting problem!  I suggest you post this to /r/opensourcephotography and the G+ group.  I seem to recall this is doable but looking for the link13:14
cfhowlettAlexPortable, OK, darktable has a geotagging function which you can apply to a group of photos13:14
BenamiNo. I just have the one machine. The closest thing I have would be my Android phone lol13:15
BenamiIs it a difficult process?13:15
BenamiI've got the gnucash-2.6.11.tar.bz2 downloaded and saved onto my memory stick, but something tells me it's not going to be a process made simple lol13:16
hateballBenami: if you have your phone, cant you just tether the machine?13:16
AlexPortablecfhowlett: darktable is a program?13:16
cfhowlettAlexPortable, right.  I think you are looking at tagging in an external app then loading to the maps13:16
cfhowlettAlexPortable, yes, photo editing13:16

AlexPortablewell the screenshot I sent you is from photoplace13:16
AlexPortablebut this only works with inserted GPS data into the photo13:17
cfhowlettAlexPortable, darktable doesn't care where the gps data comes from13:17
hateballBenami: if the phone supports USB tethering it should be pretty painless13:17
hateballBenami: if you have a working internet connection all you need to do is "sudo apt-get install gnucash"13:18
cfhowlettAlexPortable, I must still be missing something.  does photoplace NOT do what you want?13:18
BenamiTo be honest, I never really thought that was an option given the computer's age and general over complication lol I'll research it now.13:18
AlexPortablemaybe im the problem here not working out how it works13:18

rizidaftykins, okay i will try this17:46
daftykinsNedal: ok so this sounds like wifi... what's the adapter in use? "lspci" for PCI cards or "lsusb" for USB dongles can help, or even "sudo lshw -C network" in a pastebin - you can use some portable storage to share the output from a system that is online17:46

daftykinsdaum_: #ubuntu-server would be a better place, maybe even #linux in general18:11
daum_thanks! will check that out18:12
EriC^^Guest73806: it should either downgrade it successfully, then try restarting, or it'll complain like mine did, then try sudo apt-get -f install to fix it maybe ( it'll use stuff already on the pc )18:12
rizidaftykins, so i tried booting from usb and then mount /dev/sda3 where ubuntu is installed but it gave error "invalid argument"18:13
Guest73806eric can you paste ecaxtly what i should do18:13
EriC^^Guest73806: sudo dpkg -i /libnl*18:14
EriC^^Guest73806: if it works, then restart, if it doesn't, type sudo apt-get -f install and press y to fix stuff18:14
EriC^^you can try disabling the proposed repo, but i dont know how many other packages would get affected, etc. i guess that's your next option18:15
Guest73806ok trying to copy and then have this after we disconnect thanks Eric18:15
rizidaftykins, so i am guessing its a problem actual partition18:16

KlausedSourceI want to make "ls -l" always be "ls -l with-time=long-iso". Tried putting an alias for this in bashrc but it seems like alias do not work with parameters is this correct? how can I accomplish what I am looking for?18:24
llutzgjung: you cannot change that value, you only change the actual speed18:24
daftykinsKlausedSource: the #bash folks can probably help with that, most likely you issued the alias wrong18:24
gjungbut nothing change18:25
llutzgjung: how do you check the speed?18:26
llutzgjung: the actual speed18:26
dlamhey is there a conventional name for the /var/run/ folder?   i'm calling it the "pid folder" right naow  :D18:27
mcphailKlausedSource: you can define a function, then make "ls" an alias to that function18:27
gjungdmesg | grep tty18:28
KlausedSourcemcphail, how would that work? never done functions in bash18:28
KlausedSourcemcphail, I assume by "define a function" you are refering to bash18:29
llutzgjung: dmesg DOESN'T tell you the actual speed setting. use stty/setserial to read the setting18:29
mcphailKlausedSource: yes. You just define a function in bash like "afunction() { do stuff here }" and add it to bashrc. Then alias ls to that function. Your function would have to parse parameters and either pass the unhindered to the _real_ ls or (if you select -l) add your extra parameter. Rather messy, but it would work18:31
rizidaftykins, here is the output of sudo parted -l paste.ubuntu.com/14995219/18:31
gjungcan you tel me the comand18:32
llutzgjung: i did." sudo stty -F /dev/ttyS0"18:32
mcphailKlausedSource: what most people would do, though, is just create a new alias for your "ls -l whateverelse" command (i.e. lsll)18:32

melodiedoes someone have insights about Intel Skylake cpus? How does it behave under Ubuntu?18:49
melodieI would appreciate help very much18:50
daftykinsmelodie: #linux would be more appropriate for such a question imo18:50
melodiedaftykins I don't think so18:50
melodiethis is purely a matter of insight within the Ubuntu community18:50
daftykinsok, well you're welcome to disagree... but since the kernel defines the support... i don't think there are any issues.18:50
melodiehere it says otherwise, but it's of last august: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=intel-skl-prelim-support18:51
k1lskylake cpus have freezing issues and need a fix in the kernel for it.18:51
daftykinsyes that's irrelevant18:51
melodiek1l ah !18:51
daftykinsk1l: are you referring to the high load prime95 issue discovered?18:51
melodiek1l for a computer which needs to be built in the next week and will use Ubuntu (Kubuntu) only, which powerful CPU would you suggest?18:52
daftykinsyou would need to define the use case for it18:52
k1lmelodie: dont know. not using consumer pcs.18:53
daftykins'consumer' ? :)18:53
melodiedaftykins he wants it to be highly snappy for his current needs among which the more greedy is image work with Gimp (I suspect he will also have libreoffice, firefox, and other greedy apps running at same time) all needs to be working well together18:54
daftykinsthose are all low end base examples a several year old system could work fine with18:55
OerHeksreally, greedy apps ??18:55
daftykinsgreedy browsers om nom nom18:55
OerHeks1 speedfix for any pc would be a SSD, or better NVM Express-ssd18:56
melodiedaftykins yes sure, just recent ones could probably do less well, but as he wants a new machine without any windows, I have to pick up right for now, and for the new few years18:57

rice_llutz, I know exactly how, but since I'm running i3wm nothing seems to change for me.19:00
daftykinsgood ol' i3, the breaker of things19:01
rizidaftykins, here is the result paste.ubuntu.com/1499554819:01
llutzrice_: does your wm read ~/.bashrc at all when starting a terminal?19:01
rice_llutz, how can I see if it does?19:01

daftykinsi know everyone has issues with it.19:03

daftykinsrizi: seeing anything other than 0 for Reallocated sectors, current pending sectors, or reallocated sectors tends to be good evidence of an issue - then errors can be written beneath the table of data, too19:06

srulimgolisch: not really, i make many changes on VM which i want to loose on reboots, for that i revert snapshot, however when i do want to save the changes what i used to do in Vbox is delete existing snapshot and create new, the difference between vbox and libvirt snapshot is in vbox the changes happen to base image and snap keeps track of what changed, so if u delete snapshot you havnt lost anything20:31
squintyExagone313,  ok not really sure what you are asking then.  if you want to search your ssh connection with gui, then start nautilus after you have ssh logged in and then use nautilus's search function20:32

mcphailubuntuuser: are you sure it isn't working, though? Is it still showing as a controller in steam, for example?20:49
Exagone313Ben64: I noticed that pcmanfm can open the desktop files, so I found a good alternative to VNC I think20:49

Guest57898EriC^^, then I was close thx20:50
squintyExagone313,  on unity here, but if you are using xubuntu, I thinks what you are possibly refering to is the "whisker" menu.  do a locate for whisker and see what pops up20:50

Exagone313squinty: I use ubuntu server20:50
TTTAI'm gonna go dig around for an Ethernet cable20:50
ioriaTTTA, i think we need the complete output of the command20:51
squintyExagone313, ok then I have no idea (typically servers don't have gui)  maybe someone else could kick in or try asking in #ubuntu-server20:51
Exagone313it's ok it was replied20:52
BassemEriC^^, i install it how can i run it now i cant find it in dash20:52
Exagone313you just not noticed20:52
ubuntuusermcphail: thats the reason. the controller shows up on steam. what's stranger is that steam sees 4 controllers titled xintupt controller20:52
TTTAStill digging for an Ethernet cable20:53
TTTAMight have to make one...20:53
mcphailubuntuuser: I'd type "sleep 5 && udevadm monitor -p", unplug your keyboard, wait until the udev monitor program starts, plug your keyboard back in and then send the output to the author20:54
Exagone313squinty: if you need to know: I use X apps through SSH. And via pcmanfs I can go to /usr/share/applications and open the desktop files directly open the proper apps. I can open them as a file to know which category they are in. A better solution would be a menu integrated in a window that would do the same as desktop menus.20:54
BassemEriC^^, ok i find it but ther's no option for stereo mix20:54
EriC^^where are you trying to record something?20:54
Exagone313I think I may add it to my future TODO projects20:54

Guest57898mgolisch, remote forwarding would be what I need, right?21:40
mgolischGuest57898: no that would allow to forward stuff from the ssh servers side to your client or machines in its network, but i think you want the other way arround (local forwarding)21:42

Guest57898ssh -L 80:localhost:80 wiki@
Guest57898like that?21:46
mgolischyeah but you can mostlikely not do that, as only root can bind to ports belov 1024 , choose a hogher port number for the local port21:47
Guest57898internal IP on remote end?21:47
Guest57898So bind apache to port 5000 for example?21:48
mgolischno just use another port in the forwarding thing21:48
ubuntu919Basically, I'm trying to output stdout into a wav file. I can currently play sounds using "./<progname>|aplay" and that pipes the output just fine into aplay. I'm wondering how to record it into a wav file, as piping it into arecord doesn't produce an audible wav file.21:48
mgolischlike -L 8080:localhost:8021:48
EriC^^ubuntu919: never tried it but maybe <progname>|aplay && arecord something21:49
Guest57898the 8080 is the port at home or on my local pc?21:49
EriC^^ubuntu919: i mean, <progname>|aplay & arecord something21:49
mgolischso what this does is: the ssh client creates a listen socket on 8080 and forwards all stuff on that through the tunnel to localhost:80 on the ssh server21:50
mgolischGuest57898: that would be the localport on the ssh client21:50
ubuntu919EriC^^:  The problem is that I'm spewing bytes into standard output atm, and when it's piped into aplay, it's interpretted as sound. For some reason, arecord doesn't work the same way.21:50
C_minusI'm stuck in a login loop.21:51
Guest57898mgolisch, ok21:51
ubuntu919EriC^^:  I know that aplay is smart enough to interpret the data as sound as best it can, so I don't want to go through the curfuffle or programming my own wav output.21:51
ubuntu919EriC^^:  I'll give that a shot though, two seconds21:52

EriC^^ubuntu919: what gets put into something?21:55
=== psychopath is now known as DANII
mgolischno idea but maybe arecord only records from input type channels?21:55
ubuntu919EriC^^: I basically want the output that's heard by aplay when a file is played, to be stored in an audio format file for a duration21:56
Bashing-omchilversc_: ^^ Maybe : Lubuntu is a faster, more lightweight and energy saving variant of Ubuntu using LXDE, the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment. It is targeted at "normal" PC and laptop users running on low-spec hardware.21:56
ubuntu919EriC^^: My program generates procedural music, so I need the duration to cut off recording at some number of seconds.21:56
chilversc_Bashing-om: any easy way to switch from standard ubuntu install to lubuntu?21:58

Bashing-omchilversc_: Yeah .. though I am not a proponent of multi-DEs / You could install ' sudo apt install lubuntu-desktop ' and at the login screen choose to start lxde .22:01
C_minusSonikkuAmerica I don't know what that means exactly. I dropped down to the terminal and tried chown user:user .Xauthority because some askubuntu answer suggested...22:02
SonikkuAmericaC_minus: I'd just [ rm -rf ~/.Xauthority ] so that it creates the file from scratch again.22:02
sawyeri just installed awesome wm and i'm stick in fullscreen22:03
chilversc_Bashing-om: I was more hoping to install one, then remove unity, just want to avoid re-installing the whole of ubuntu (and downloading another iso)22:03

Bashing-omsawyer: Hello ; You are in ubuntu support. you have an issue you need help with ?22:04
C_minusSonikkuAmerica so i typed what you said and hit ctrl alt f7 to get back to gui. same behaviour22:04

tsp`SonikkuAmerica: i wouldn't use -rf just to delete one single file22:04

Bashing-omchilversc_: unity is deeply embeded in the system . not so easy to remove and not destroy the system . Is my take .22:05
C_minusit's no longer there, ./Xauthority No such file or directory22:05
sawyerBashing-om: I just changed window managers for the first time. I choose to dive in headfirst. I've been messing around with the features and i'm stuck in fullscreen; meaning this app is the only thing on my screen.22:05

C_minusStarted acting funny after booting into windows.22:15
C_minusUsually never have problems like this.22:15
C_minusWhat can I do to try and diagnose this problem?22:17
C_minusMight the login loop be somehow related to Nvidia? I have done several reboots since getting CUDA. But this is the first time rebooting after using Win7.22:19
ikoniasince "getting" cuda ?22:19
C_minusikonia yes since installing cuda, what's the ambiguity there?22:20
ikonia"installing cuda" ? how did you install cuda ?22:20
ikoniado you mean you install the nvidia propitary modules ?22:20
qualiaqqIs there a need of people to contribute to updating repositories? I notice a lot of things are out of date, but I am not sure what is really behind all that. If there is a need for people to do this kind of stuff, is there a place where I can read about it?22:21
ikoniathe main repos are there for stability and the version numbers do not get bumped22:22
mcphail!latest | qualiaqq22:22
ubottuqualiaqq: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.22:22
C_minusi already had some nvidia driver from the "additional drivers" panel. later i got the cuda toolkit and cudnn. i believe it installed a driver during the cuda toolkit installation too. Though I have rebooted without problem several times since then.22:22

C_minusThis used to happen whenever I used Win7 and rebooted back to Ubuntu. But I used to be able to solve it by using an older kernel version. Now even that has the same problem.22:33

ikoniab.) use the fallback/failsafe mode - test you can login to the X session there22:33
ikoniathen move forward22:33

Jordan_UMannyLNJ: Can you successfully ssh in from another host on your LAN? How are you testing a connection from "the outside world"?23:08
C_minusit says /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d No such file or directory23:10
ikoniaC_minus: what does ?23:10
seanrdevxangua: Yeah I just recopied the files and it works again. I don't know what happened during the update but that fixed it.23:10
C_minusikonia - the shell, i guess?23:11
ikoniaC_minus: what are you doing to get that error23:11
C_minussame for without the .d23:11
ikoniaC_minus: what are you doing to get that error23:11
C_minuserm nano ./xorg.conf23:12
C_minusfrom that directory23:12
ikoniaC_minus: /etc/X11/xorg.conf23:12
C_minusAh, there are lots of files beginning xorg.conf in that directory, followed by numbers (dates?)23:13
C_minusand one with failsafe at the end23:13
ikoniait's not a directory23:13
ikoniait's a file23:13
C_minusin /etc/X1123:13
ikoniais there a file called /etc/X11/xorg.conf23:14
C_minusno, just the several versions with numbers after23:14
ikoniaC_minus: can you pastebin ls -la /etc/X11 please23:14
C_minusikonia it's kinda hard, i'm on a different laptop to talk to you23:15
ikoniaC_minus: thats fine23:15
C_minusi can type it out23:15
ikoniano no, I understand23:15
ikoniaso if you do "ls -la /etc/X11/xorg.conf" what do you get ?23:15
C_minusls: cannot access /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such fie or directory23:16
ikoniaperfect, ok23:16
ikoniaC_minus: so what are the other files in /etc/X11 ?23:16
C_minusapp-defaults, cursors, default-display-manager, fonts, rgb.txt, xint, xkb, xorg.conf.XXXXXXXX (several of these), xorg.conf.failsafe, Xreset, Xreset.d, Xresources, Xsession, Xsession.d, Xsession.options, xsm, Xwrapper.config23:18
ikoniaC_minus: interesting, normally if you're using nvidia it makes an xorg.conf to force the loading of the nvidia module,23:18
ikoniaC_minus: what version of ubuntu is this ?23:18
ikoniaok, so it will still honour the xorg.conf23:19
ikoniaC_minus: look at the timestamps on the xorg.conf.whatever23:19
ikoniafind the last one, and open it23:19
C_minusThe most recent one is today23:19
ikoniaC_minus: ok, so that would explain why it's broke toda23:19
ikoniaC_minus: lets try a basic test for "luck"23:19
ikoniaC_minus: copy that file to be called xorg.conf (not move - copy)23:20
C_minusOK, its some blocks of stuff with a few indents...23:20
C_minuswhich file, the latest one?23:20
C_minusok hold on a sec23:20
C_minusikonia ok i copied it to a new file called xorg.conf23:21
Neohey guys, how can I get my macbook touchpad right click working? I'm on ubuntu wily on a macbook 8,123:22
ikoniaC_minus: reboot and see what happens23:22
ikoniaC_minus: bit of a luck shot before debugging in more detail23:22
C_minushehe thanks, I appreciate this ikonia23:23
C_minusikonia WOAH! beautiful lovely gorgeous desktop, panel and launcher appear!23:24
C_minusikonia I owe you a million quid.23:24
ikoniaC_minus: look of the draw,23:24
ikoniaC_minus: something is changing/backing up your xorg.conf - find it23:24
ikoniaC_minus: or keep a copy of that file for if it happens again23:25
C_minusikonia, if you had the patience, I'd love to hear what your rationale behind suggesting this solution was. because it largely seems like witchcraft to me. (you mean go to /etc/X11 and save the xorg.conf i just made, and be able to back it up from a usb stick or whatever?)23:26
ikoniaC_minus: just keep a copy in your home dir eg: xorg.conf.safe23:26
ikoniaC_minus: I just know how xorg works to a level that made it a common sense thing to do, just experience, nothing else23:27
C_minusikonia also does it strike you as strange that i encounter these kinds of issues after shutting down a win7 session and trying to use ubuntu again? This guy mentions it, but it's a bit of a dead end http://stackoverflow.com/a/2904169323:28
kneeWhere is the ENV_SUPATH located in ubuntu23:28
ikoniaC_minus: I suspect what's happened is you've rebooted say 10 times no probles, in the 10'th time an update happened, you rebooted into windows, no problem, you booted back into ubuntu and the pending update happened and broke this23:29
ikoniaC_minus: I'm making a guess without any information23:29
C_minusikonia thanks again, you're a very helpful and patient fellow23:31
C_minusi'm a bigtime newcomer to computing and whatnot, so thanks23:31
C_minussee ya later ubuntuphiles23:32
kneeHow can you config your login policy so that users can only login in at a certin time23:33
nolsenwhat is amd64-microcode used for and do I need it?23:34
Bashing-omnolsen: does ' apt-cache show amd64-microcode ' answer that question(s) .23:37
nolsenSorta, though https://askubuntu.com/questions/297628/should-i-install-amd64-microcode says it's a 32bit program, but I can't see if that's true.23:38

=== Guest71877 is now known as jmbabazi
Bashing-omnolsen: "think" they are talking that Left 4 Dead 2 is a 32 bit program .23:41
homa_hi my friends23:53
naccnolsen: Bashing-om's suggestion is pretty complete. It's for AMD processor microcode23:54
naccnolsen: the package itself doesn't provide any "programs" really, unless you mean the bin files that are microcode themselves23:55
