[00:19] ciao === scott_ is now known as Guest5583 [00:32] where does ubuntu store apt-get cache? like the results of available packages? [00:33] Joel: /var/lib/apt/ iirc [00:33] Joel: the package cache is in /var/cache/apt/archives. Is that what you want to know? [00:35] k1l_, thanks [00:37] Loshki: no that's where the actual packages get downloaded to [00:37] which is not what was asked [00:37] Joel: In /var/lib/apt/lists [00:37] * genii slides daftykins a coffee [00:37] how is it that packages dissappear ? is it because you use another kernel does that even matter? because yester day i ran "cadence" in a terminal and it was found and installed, and today it says it can't find it any where. [00:38] genii: ty! [00:39] Duality: Packages aren't supposed to disappear on a normal installation. look in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin. It may be installed under some weird name. [00:40] Loshki: how can it change name :) besides whereis doesn't show it. and it isn't under /usr/bin or /usr//local/bin [00:40] maybe i uninstalled it by acident with apt is such a thing possible ? [00:41] i'd like to have a long drumsolo ogg on the login, how can i do that? [00:41] Duality: The more probable reason is that you installed something else since then which conflicted with cadence, and it was removed to prevent conflicts with that new package [00:41] OerHeks: i hope you're not going to be a nuisance at the library! [00:42] yea there was this conflict with a package yesterday [00:42] Duality: it's name won't change, but sometimes the name is not what you expected. Check the history of your installs in /var/log/dpkg.log [00:42] not finding anything called cadence in ubuntu [00:43] OerHeks: it's the first thing I switch off [00:43] maybe it was something you compiled or something like that. maybe in your home directory? ~/cadence [00:44] all i find is just rename to /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/desktop-login.ogg [00:45] Loshki: the log shows me that it was removed :( [00:50] Duality: whats the name of the package [00:51] Ben64: cadence [00:51] pastebin the output of "apt-cache show cadence" [00:52] http://pastebin.com/p8sm0PYZ [00:54] so reinstall it, and keep in mind 3rd party repositories and their software aren't supported here [00:55] Ben64: i see but apt-get says there is no install candidate [00:56] well ... i don't know. thats why 3rd party stuff isn't supported here [00:59] Ben64: ok :) but it seems that allot of my audio is broken :) I get it fixed, but I just don't understand why this happend :S [01:04] Duality: it could be because you're installing unsupported software [01:06] Ben64: could be :) [01:09] Hello! I am having a bit of trouble with a new install, boot repair doesn't seem to work. [01:09] Here is a link to my issue: http://askubuntu.com/questions/731855/new-install-doesnt-boot-shown-kernal-panic-unknown-block [01:11] greywalks: wipe it and start again [01:12] So can I just input a bootable flash drive and redo the install @daftykins ? [01:12] i'm sure it can be fixed but since it's a clean install, there's no point. [01:12] sure, though i'd dd zeroes onto the first MB of the disk too === Nach0z_ is now known as Nach0z [01:13] any terminal commands to show how long ive used mint in total? [01:15] berry_: this is not Mint support, regardless of similarity you're in the wrong place [01:15] !mint [01:15] Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org [01:15] :) [01:16] i'm trying to restart apache server on trusty, can't figure out what the service name is, have tried apache and httpd [01:17] apache2 [01:17] truexfan81: It should be apache2 [01:17] since it's... apache2 [01:17] ahh kk ty :D [01:17] :) [01:17] :) [01:17] list all services is a good approach [01:26] Someone recommend I use the .run installer for CUDA toolkit. This guy suggests that this is a bad idea, but doesn't really explain why. http://askubuntu.com/a/626559 What qualifies as "not properly installed"? === greycloud is now known as blackcloud === blackcloud is now known as greycloud [01:30] C_minus: well, he does mention this (Note, I can't confirm or deny this) "and will need to be re-installed every time you update kernel." [01:30] C_minus: and note that that page has nothing to do with cuda [01:30] C_minus: actually reading that it makes sense, cause apt will pull in a kernel without it and then you'd have to add it back in, alse ^ [01:31] When you do the .run installation, it asks you to install a driver. When I chose not to install the driver it failed. [01:32] C_minus: if you chose not to, isn't failing succeeding? [01:32] C_minus: what are you actually trying to accomplish [01:35] Hey guys, whenever i install an application on ubuntu it doesnt show up in the application list unless i restart unity. [01:35] Any fix for this? [01:35] Well I had some issues recently with an login loop. in /etc/X11 there are loads of files xorg.conf., but no xorg.conf. ikonia instructed me to take the most recent and copy it to xorg.conf, and that enabled me to log in again. i'm trying to work out why this is. [01:35] version? === guido_ is now known as cabezza [01:36] in 2016 you shouldn't really need a xorg.conf [01:37] i don't know anything about that. i just want to avoid this login loop pain happening again. [01:37] pastebin the file then [01:37] my first guess is hybrid graphics to blame [01:38] C_minus: you seem to be all over the place. you were talking about running cuda, then you pasted a link talking about nvidia graphics drivers, now xorg.conf and problems logging in? [01:41] oh great, those details would've been helpful [01:41] C_minus: i think you just broke your own setup if the above is accurate [01:41] Ben64. I was talking about the nvidia driver that got installed whilst installing the CUDA toolkit. [01:42] When the login loop was happening I saw in the xsession error log "(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)." [01:43] C_minus: you're giving us tiny little useless pieces of information, we need a full picture - so paste the working xorg.conf [01:44] sorry here you go http://paste.ubuntu.com/15005954/ [01:44] right yes so it's a hybrid setup [01:45] hola [01:45] necesito help [01:45] english only, ask away on one line with detail [01:46] hola [01:46] como lo pongo spanol [01:46] #ubuntu_es [01:47] no #ubuntu-es [01:47] #ubuntu-es [01:47] como es [01:47] is hybrid graphics bad? [01:48] i have blackbox in need config [01:48] necesito ayuda de un experto [01:49] !es | blackhat [01:49] blackhat: En la mayoría de los canales de Ubuntu, se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español entre al canal #ubuntu-es; escriba " /join #ubuntu-es " (sin comillas) y presione intro. [01:49] blackhat: backbox is not supported here neither in Ubuntu-es [01:49] gracias [01:49] /join #ubuntu-es [01:50] xangua, sorry. I entered the room too late to see his WS [01:50] OS [01:55] Uh oh. Looks like I've made a mistake by installing the driver provided with the .run file. In "Additional Drivers" I only have the option to "continue using a manually installed driver." I guess I'll have to uninstall them? [01:59] how do kernel updates affect the nvidia driver? this source suggests automatically re-installing driver after kernel updates http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/02/how-to-install-nvidia-drivers-manually-in-ubuntu [02:01] Hey, who could help me out with setting up multiple distros? [02:01] Kyran, sanest option for multi = virtualbox [02:02] Hey guys, does anyone know where "Always on top" is saved when u press alt + space? There's a window where I can't uncheck this option so I'd like to erase the memory of this setting [02:03] C_minus: It's dynamic kernel module support; This will allow DKMS to automatically build a new module (driver) . [02:04] Eh, I don't want to use VirtualBox [02:04] Seminarian: if it's not in gconf/dconf, it's probably in ~/.cache [02:04] Seminarian: you can't alt+space and select with arrow keys? [02:05] artois: No I can't it open the context menu of another window, not that window [02:05] Kyran, if all your distro's are *buntu, there is an easier option ... install a single ubuntu, then install the other destkop environments. if you just MUST have the full experience, install the other distro-desktop. logout, choose a session, login [02:05] Seminarian: ...wha? [02:05] artois: It's a playonlinux window (wine) [02:06] artois: I regret selecting the option always on top [02:06] Seminarian: yeah... but what were you saying about the context menu, I couldn't parse that [02:06] artois: If I press alt + tab it just opens the alt + tab as if I did it on another window [02:07] artois: if no other window is open it goes to my top-bar in unity [02:07] and you can't click on it with the mouse cursor, either? [02:07] artois: nop [02:08] Can I delete the contents of all that's in ~/.cache ? [02:08] Seminarian: did you make it always on top just this particular session, or in an earlier session? [02:08] Seminarian: yes, or just mv it temporarily [02:08] artois: Earlier session.. I tried to reboot [02:08] ah [02:09] might want to try that when logged out of X [02:09] Indeed I must have the full experience, but the other distos wont all be under Ubuntu. I'm looking up how I can make this happen and I may just partition the drive, but it'd be nice to share files between all OS' [02:09] artois: So move the ~/.cache folder after I killed X from another virtual terminal ? [02:10] kyran: proxmox is a option i use [02:10] Seminarian: sure, worth a try [02:10] artois: Cool thanks will try that soon when downloads are finished [02:12] God [02:13] So sudo apt-get install -f is failing becuase my /boot is full [02:13] But, then I run purge-old-kernels and it tells me to run sudo-apt-get install -f [02:13] svm_invictvs, you can do spring cleaning manually [02:14] http://www.unixmen.com/how-to-uninstall-the-old-kernels-in-ubuntu/ [02:15] What's the easiest way to tell whihc one grub is pointed at? [02:15] svm_invictvs, uname -a will tell you what's currently running [02:15] wow it's old [02:15] heh [02:16] 3.13.33 [02:16] svm_invictvs: use "dpkg -l | grep linux-" and "sudo dpkg -r " to remove -extra packages, then linux-image, to restore space in /boot - "sudo apt-get autoremove" should help though, unless a package change is in progress [02:16] er...36 [02:17] Kyran: My way - 5 installed OSs - testing - one shared data partition : http://paste.ubuntu.com/15006073/ . [02:18] daftykins Says that I have unmet dependencies when I use "autoremove" [02:19] yeah so then what i said applies [02:19] you'll have to use the earlier method i laid out. [02:19] So I need to manually clean up? [02:19] yes [02:19] read my message [02:19] guys i promise i'll run out of package name questions soon [02:20] Bashing-om: Looks clean, I like it! How can I make this happen on my machine? [02:20] i'm installing phpmyadmin, i need php5enmod [02:20] truexfan81: learn to use the tools to discover them yourself. [02:20] apt-cache search [02:20] no you do not need that, that's not a necessary thing [02:21] "a2enmod php5" would work, but installing the PHP module would auto activate it under apache2 typically on install [02:21] https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-on-ubuntu-14-04 [02:21] daftykins: ^ [02:21] I'm trying to run xampp. When trying to start the application. In the terminal it says failed to create /home/user/.pki/nssdb directory. If I look through the folder via the gui I don't see the .pki folder. If I try to create it, I'm told it already exists. It shows up in the terminal when I use ls. I've been messing with this for the past hour and feel like I haven't gotten anywhere. Please help [02:22] truexfan81: no, i am stating what is truth... you're just linking me to a hand holding guide [02:22] kk [02:22] yeah its giving me WARNING: Module mcryptphp5enmod ini file doesn't exist under /etc/php5/mods-available [02:22] daftykins Cool manual cleanup did it. [02:22] aww don't say you doubted me? ;) [02:23] I installed the program using sudo because it won't let me install without sudo. I tried changing the privileges and reinstalling. It looks like the privileges have been successfully changed but it still won't run :( [02:23] Kyran: Just a matter of using Gparted to sett up partitions as you like, and installing systems where you want them . Prior prudent planning applies ,. [02:23] daftykins No,, I never said that :) [02:23] :D [02:23] package linux-image-extra-3.13.0-58-generic is not ready for configuration [02:23] cannot configure (current status `half-installed') [02:23] oh boy [02:23] wtf, now [02:23] svm_invictvs: sounds like that was an older one that never finished perhaps [02:24] hrm [02:24] Bashing-om: Should the storage partition be on it's own without an OS or should it be fine on the main OS? [02:24] $20 to anyone who can help me get xampp running without any errors [02:24] svm_invictvs: try a "sudo apt-get -f install" anyway [02:24] via paypal or anyway you want [02:24] Yeah, that's what fails [02:25] you can't bribe volunteers in here, it's not what it's about [02:25] daftykins Back to square one [02:25] no it's not back to square one, because space has been created :P [02:25] bribe doesn't seem like the appropriate word [02:25] share "dpkg -l | grep linux-" in a pastebin [02:25] it's an incentive to someone who wouldn't care otherwise [02:25] rainypapers: as a native english speaker, it is :) [02:26] Kyran: Where you have the shared data partition does not matter .. where ever is comvenient . [02:26] well the offer still stands. if you don't want the "bribe" i'd still appreciate help [02:26] @everyone [02:26] this isn't twitter [02:27] it doesn't need to be if you understand what I meant [02:27] daftykins http://www.mysticpaste.com/view/jDeP5GQQVx;jsessionid=1ne2pem97pgce1i74s26lvz1y8?2 [02:27] Hmm, okay thanks, Bashing-om, I'll try it out! [02:27] I don't use twitter and @everyone doesn't work the way I just used it on twitter anyway [02:28] svm_invictvs: wow so much cruft. [02:28] yeeeup [02:28] rainypapers: please reduce the verbal diarrhoea now [02:29] svm_invictvs: anything with "sudo dpkg -r linux-image-extra-3.13.0-59-generic linux-image-3.13.0-59-generic" ? [02:29] Kyran: A liveDVD. Gparted, time and want too ... it is all time in . [02:32] daftykins Completed but with errors. Some stuf fwas already missing [02:32] can you paste the output?

[02:42] Kyran: Heads up, you will learn a lot about grub in a multi-boot environment . [02:44] could anyone recommend a definitively working guide please for getting ubuntu to connect to a windows AD, I have tried various and just cannot seem to get it to connect [02:50] Hey does anyone know why my ssh would be disconnecting because of broken pipe? This is happening on 15.10 but I was not seeing this on my 15.04 machine. Could it have to do with turning the screen off and locking the machine, something I was not doing on the other machine? [02:50] packet_write_wait: Connection to xx.xx.xx.xx: Broken pipe [02:52] by turning the screen off I mean the Brightness & Lock settings are set to do this [02:57] I have SSL certificates locked to root:root by let's encrypt. How can I let my node.js app read them? Do I add it to a group or modify the permissions? [03:04] How do I get apt not to ask me yse or no? [03:04] -f?

I'm trying to install CAE Linux which is based on xubuntu LTS 12.04 onto a USB drive. Just thought I would say hello [04:48] nvm got it [04:50] Hey, hoping someone would know what to do here: my computer boots normally (startup sound, can login via ssh, etc.), but nothing shows on my monitor at all during the boot process. [04:50] i tried replacing hdmi cable, monitors [04:54] Carson_, you get video from bios and the boot menu? [04:56] nothing shows on my monitor at all during the boot process. [04:56] Carson_, if you have builtin graphics AND a video card, it might have picked the wrong output [04:56] im plugged into the graphics card [04:57] Carson_: No POST from your boot firmware? [04:57] try plugging into the motherboard video and see it thats whats going on [04:58] that didnt work [04:58] what the fuck? [04:58] did you reboot it to see if bios pops up? [04:58] i plugged it back in and it started working [04:58] \o/ [04:58] And it doesn't matter what monitor? Always the first thing you ever see is Unity? [04:59] hm, bad vertical sync connection maybe? [04:59] dunno [05:00] Carson_: In the future please watch your language in this channel. [05:00] make sure the bios or efi is set to use the card in pci-blah-blah which would be your plug in card [05:01] Jordan_U, sorry [05:03] hello does anyone here use kodi?

Additionally, I want to use a wiimote to control my media center [05:06] wow [05:08] so.......? [05:08] i dislike kodi [05:09] why is that? [05:09] I don't think the answer is kodi-specific, so by excluding those who don't use kodi you exclude those who do know about xrandr just because they don't use kodi.

[05:13] thx brah [05:14] Is it normal for the app menus to be absent in gnome shell? [05:15] davido_, it worked! but will it stay if i shut down the system? [05:15] No. [05:15] Maybe there's a .bashrc you could include it in. [05:15] awesome ill find it [05:16] or better maybe create a /etc/X11/xorg.conf [05:17] davido_, okay. The display looks kinda squished when i rotated it. :\ [05:18] what should I try now? === Guma_away is now known as Guma [05:35] weird. tab completion is broken on ubuntu. if I type foo b the b will expand to bar. but if I type sh b it won't expand the b (bash b will expand it) [05:36] Anybody know a decent dictionary app? (For english words, and preferably one that works offline too) [05:37] kindle.

[06:26] Does anyone here use PPC ubuntu? [06:26] I need some help as every time I try to run it on my powerbook or ibook the system freezes [06:46] I am new to linux and am currently going through the Introduction to Linux course on edX. My question is about this command: 'touch -t 03201600 myfile'. What would be a reason to modify a timestamp on a file? Also, what would happen if I ran that command on every file? I am unsure the significance of the timestamp in linux. I hope this is the right room for the question(s)... [06:47] zebulan: The only reasons I can think of to modify access timestamps is to cover your tracks or to make it look like you didn't access a file you weren't supposed to. I think it's just in the edX course because you can do it. [06:48] to turn in homework late [06:49] hello [06:49] Anyone use powerpc ubuntu? [06:49] I need some help as every time I try to run it on my powerbook or ibook the system freezes [06:49] AdomasRai, quesker thanks for the responses! [06:52] hi [06:53] sup [06:53] I need some help as every time I try to run it on my powerbook or ibook the system freezes [06:53] ubuntu that is [06:53] I just hit the up key [06:53] lol [06:54] why should i prefer ubuntu over windows? [06:54] ibook [06:54] its powerpc [06:54] also windows makes me want to jump off a bridge [06:55] i mean in windows i get everything pre installed while in ubuntu i have to install all the packages and stuff [06:55] yoyo: huh? Windows after a fresh install has virtually nothing. b [06:56] yoyo: you can make a lot of arguments for Windows, but capabilities of a default install is not even close to one of them. [06:56] nah i'm talking about all the drivers and stuff... [06:56] ok [06:57] i get your point [06:57] Windows is closed, it doesn't allow for anything resembling easy modification to tasks you require... riddle me this, if you want to make your windows a much darker color in windows 10 and set specific coloration for text and other fields can you just edit themes? [06:57] ok so just because i want a different color on my screen i should use ubuntu? [06:57] valjan__ no you have to go through like 5 menus like its kde [06:58] I fucking hate kde [06:58] . [06:58] can we light kde on fire? That would be amazing [06:58] whats kde> [06:58] This is merely an example... also not even that but in 10 you can't set the colors to be a non-high contrast color mode for those dark settings === bisu is now known as bisu2 [06:59] Without, going into registry edits and enabling beta stuff that windows doesn't want you to access as an end user. [06:59] ubuntus cool for like coding and stuff but if i'm a normal user its like too much hectic to understand === Tronsha is now known as [UPA]Stefan [07:00] yoyo: nah you just have to push buttons and see what happens [07:00] yoyo: for SysAdmins. too [07:00] So, the things that make Ubuntu nice for more end users is the -option- to be able to get into some of the deeper stuff should you desire but also remaining fairly simple in a lot of the interactions with the environment [07:02] yoyo: what vlajan__ is trying to say is that you can plop it in, play with the building blocks like legos from the base all the way to the top and change the colors, add a window or a porch, and by the end you have your own castle out of a pile of legos [07:02] You can play around, should you so wish, but out of the box Ubuntu offers essentially what windows does with many many more features. While file installation can be seen as a bit more complex it's also vastly more secure than running everything out of .exe files and many of the package managers make installing everything but fringe programs almost as easy as it is in windows or Mac. [07:03] AdomasRai: Thank you for the succinct anecdote. [07:07] Also, heya. I'm new here ^_^, longtime Ubuntu user and I've hardly ever used IRC but figured I should start getting into it. [07:09] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0bMqx9irDU -- Same problem as earlier. I have xev showing in the video. There's a mouse side-scrolling issue, and I can't seem to move any windows when clicking the titlebar. The errors are also far greater in MATE resulting in worse results. [07:15] Seriously can anyone give me an answer as to why opening abiword in lubuntu and going left and right around on the help bar while it is open gives the system a seizure and kills it on my low end G4 ibook and high end powerbook [07:15] like at all [07:16] Dare I install Linux Mint. Guess I'll try [07:16] ew why [07:16] it still uses 3.16 [07:16] stay away from that bullshit [07:16] "but mint is the most popular" [07:16] most popular my dick it's old slow broken retarded and outdated [07:17] Because I having some sort of failure in Ubuntu. I won't stick with Mint. I just want to see if it's the kernel. [07:17] fuck that get arch or ubu 15.10 [07:17] or software [07:17] I have 15.10.

Please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org [07:17] And if Mint doesn't do it, I'll move onto Debian to see if it does. [07:20] If Debian isn't erroneous, I'll just stick with that. I'm unsure what's going on. I hope it's not hardware failure(Motherboard). [07:20] So who knows.

[12:10] davesidious: Well it's sort of implied, this being ubuntu, but you never know :) [12:11] davesidious: In which case I do not know, as I use KDE Plasma, where you can achieve this in many ways (easy) [12:11] cto [12:11] hateball - indeed ;) [12:11] hateball, thanks for your input - I really am grateful, even if it wasn't exactly helpful in my precise situation ;) [12:12] davesidious: Back when I used gnome there was devilspie, I dont know if you could use that. It requires writing the rules for it tho [12:13] hateball - this looks very interesting... I will take a look immediately. Awesome! [12:14] davesidious: Good luck :) === rick is now known as Guest8408 === Guest8408 is now known as rickcapellano [12:20] That doesn't seem to do exactly what I want to do. It's good for getting things opening in the right place, but not to actually open them. Plus as I'll be having the same apps open across workspaces, it's not a particularly easy approach to use (as the same apps will be in all workspaces) [12:20] hmm. [12:21] hello you kind people! [12:22] hello [12:23] Have you ever met the following error? On Ubuntu 14 i have installed xrdp and xfce4 as well. After I used XRDP remotely then tried to log in locally on another user, the unity desktop does not seem to work at all, only wallpaper and mouse cursor is shown. [12:29] ubuntu110: i no longer use xrdp. but i used to always have trouble with it. i ditched it in favor of tv instead. [12:29] tv = teamviewer [12:30] these days, i only use ssh and nothing else though. [12:30] So I'm back to square one. Maybe someone else has an idea about creating workspaces which are automatically populated with specific apps for each workspace? [12:30] sorry could not help you more ubuntu110 [12:34] davesidious: why exactly, if i may ask is this important to you? [12:34] Because I would like to have a workspace for each project I am working on. During the day I spend time switching from working on one project to another, and this seems like a good way to do it. Memory and CPU are not a problem. [12:35] you want it to auto perform the placement in each workspace you mean? [12:36] smackusrevival - I'd like to log in and have my workspaces populated with the correct apps for each workspace [12:38] davesidious: ok. i understand. not sure what application would do that. probably controlled by the desktop environment. [12:39] smackusrevival - I'd figure something like that, but I'm unsure of the details. This seems like a rather strange thing to not have, but I appreciate I do not represent the entirety of Ubuntudom. [12:44] perfectly reasonable request i guess. [12:47] davesidious: this could be what you're after. although it does require some expertise and fiddling around. might be worth a look though. http://tuxonice.nigelcunningham.com.au/ === hoo is now known as Guest3901 [12:53] smackusrevival - very interesting.

Now it suddenly does not work anymore. However when I do it like so it plays fine: echo "1. 12- 70"| text2wave -scale 2 -f 44100 -o test.wav | play --volume 0.500000 test.wavanyone an idea why the pipe stopped working??? [14:47] Is there any good apps on linux for handwriting notes? [14:47] xournal works but it's kind of suboptimal for a variety of reasons :/ [14:47] VoidWhisperer: any text editor not good enough? [14:47] lotuspsychje, not for taking calculus notes [14:48] I need to handwrite them, which i can do since i have a 2-in-1 with a pen === _deadnull is now known as deadnull [14:48] VoidWhisperer: ah you have a writing board hardware with stylus? [14:48] lotuspsychje, it's a surface pro 3 running ubuntu [14:48] so yes, i think [14:48] lol [14:49] it has it's own custom pen thing which i'm like 90% sure i have the kernel patch for since it shows up in xinput [14:50] someone recommended making a windows VM and using seamless mode [14:50] but given that i'm using a tablet with limited battery, that's a questionable idea [14:50] that and the fact that this device only has 4GB of RAM, so using half of it for a VM seems like it wouldn't work [14:50] VoidWhisperer: so you only need a program that accepts stylus input or what? [14:50] hateball, stylus input and preferably makes it easy to erase mistakes [14:51] VoidWhisperer: I mean... cant take notes in something like gimp or krita? [14:51] VoidWhisperer: maybe this can get you somewhere? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wacom [14:51] they are drawing apps, but [14:51] not exactly, atleast not effectively [14:51] i mean it could work [14:51] hateball: yeah seems like inkscape and gimp can support that from this wacom trigger [14:51] does either of those have support for erasing things that you've drawn with a pen? [14:51] like [14:51] without having to go over the entire thing you did and erase it bit by bit [14:52] because that's what xournal tries to force you to do [14:52] solomlor [14:52] hi [14:53] is there a way to disconnect a wifi station? ( even if it will reconnect back afterwards ) [14:53] VoidWhisperer: well you have undo [14:53] hmm [14:54] and i guess if i wanted to take pages of notes i could just make new layers [14:54] VoidWhisperer: if your device has extra buttons you could probably rebind one of them to ctrl+z [14:54] and hide the lower ones [14:54] andrew_ explain? how is it ubuntu related? [14:54] it is not, my bad, wrong channel :) [14:54] VoidWhisperer: sure. or just a new image [14:55] how is inkscape/gimp in terms of how much battery it eats? [14:55] i only have one external battery with me and the usually battery length of ubuntu on it by just terminal/webbrowsing is around 3-4 hours [14:55] VoidWhisperer: try laptop-mode-tools for battery improvement [14:55] VoidWhisperer: well they wont eat anything when idling really [14:55] I'm having trouble with my Ubuntu VM's network interface [14:56] hateball, that makes sense, i'll look into it before i give up on using ubuntu for my calc notes [14:56] heretogo first guess: set it to bridged, instead of NAT [14:56] After installing Docker it renamed eth0 to eno16777736 [14:56] because worst comes to worst i have to boot back into windows for those notes [14:56] Hmm.. it was set to bridged before and I set it to NAT [14:56] heretogo: you can write static rules if you don't want it to be renamed [14:57] I don't care what it's named, I can't ifup eno1677736 [14:57] My other VMs are NAT [14:57] hateball, how can i tell if the buttons on the stylus/pen are detected as anything? [14:57] because as it currently stands they do literally nothing [14:58] VoidWhisperer: run "xev" in a terminal and press them [14:58] ok one sec [14:59] VoidWhisperer: and if it's detected, you can use xmodmap to assign a function to the keycode [15:00] hateball, it's not :( [15:00] which is weird, i'm pretty sure alot of the patches for the surface pro 3 were in whatever the most recent kernel version is [15:01] VoidWhisperer: it should be possible to do freehand drawing inside libreoffice as well [15:01] I just dont know where as I dont use it myself [15:01] none of these programs have palm rejection so i end up having to turn off the device's touchscreen while taking notes [15:01] since evidently the pen still works while the touchscreen is off [15:02] wait, the pen is bluetooth [15:02] i wonder if i can connect it [15:03] !bluetooth | VoidWhisperer [15:03] VoidWhisperer: For instructions on how to set up bluetooth, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothSetup [15:03] VoidWhisperer start with blueman [15:04] VoidWhisperer: libreoffice supports freeform lines, just make sure you have the draw toolbar available [15:04] I tested in writer [15:08] i'll test using gimp for notetaking in my calc class later and see if it's an effective way for me [15:08] :) [15:08] Thanks for the suggestion === kalen_not-here is now known as kalen [15:09] or libreoffice [15:09] if that prevents an undo thing to erase a whole pen stroke [15:10] well every time you let go of the "button" to draw, it saves that as one redo action [15:11] so if you write a novel without ever letting go... that will be 1 undo action [15:17] hello [15:17] what does this mean /var/www/html/site: $ [15:17] jska: in what context?

[18:41] Trying to build a custom kernel for a soekris net6501 ... patching works, but using (trying to follow two different tutorials [not at the same time ;}]) ... compilation of the patched kernel using https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/BuildYourOwnKernel works fine, but the resulting packages have the same name as the original package; so if something isn't quite right I can't go back to the one that comes with 12.04. ... how do I get it to incorporate the addit [18:41] Pici, Fixed my issue. It was a hardware issue for some odd reason. I had to unplug/ re-plug. All is normal now. [18:41] NoCode: weird. good to hear though. [18:43] Not using Ubuntu anymore though. I wanted to reinstall via my USB but the filesystem got corrupted on the USB so I wasn't able to boot. So I am on Debian now. [18:47] so to answer my question i looked at /proc/42/map and checked the inode against what i saw with `stat` [18:47] hey, anyone familiar with casper-rw? [18:48] I'm trying to figure out if when installing packages, it installs within casper-rw or not? [18:49] I'm going again, got UbuntuMATE running on a Raspberry Pi and I like it so much I'm off to try and install it on a netbook [18:51] is there a way to alias a command, like u[0-9]+ will be anything the user type like u1 u2 u3 ...u333 [18:56] Ubuntu borked my power switch they owe me money [18:57] at least 10 dollars right [18:57] loveheartjoylove: ubuntu cant break your power switch. so dont pretend it. [19:04] mijk: Any changes to the filesystem are stored in the casper-rw filesystem. Note however that files read by the bootloader, like the kernel and initramfs, are read before the overlay is active and thus upgrading your kernel will appear to work but won't actually have an effect. [19:05] ?? I am Italian... [19:06] * SCoder http://sourceforge.net/projects/fireplus/reviews http://mas.phpyjs.com [19:06] Jordan_U: Awesome, thanks for that [19:06] so I would have to copy those to the FAT32 partition?

[19:26] MonkeyDust: i just want to clear that is At command will help in this ? [19:26] MonkeyDust i am sorry i was looking for some help if i am on the wrong place but machine did not get proper rebooted after upgrade i can not check the command [19:27] machine is stuck some where [19:28] yes i have download the ISO from ubuntu site [19:29] Moeez what happens when you boot [19:29] or try to [19:30] its normal [19:31] Moeez what goes wrong, then [19:31] cat /etc/issue = ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS \n \l [19:31] once i upgrade and reebooted then why not it complete the boot process [19:32] Moeez: we cant know or see what you did not tell us. so please describe what is going wrong. what errormessage do you see? what is the behaviour? [19:32] Moeez ok, so it's booted now? [19:32] yes it is booted now , question remain the same [19:33] Moeez: so there was no issue now? [19:33] once i upgrade and reebooted then why not it complete the boot process ? [19:33] Moeez what was your initial question, we have to know something [19:34] Moeez: that can have like 10000000000 reasons. you need to give way more informations. [19:34] is it advisable to manually upgrade glib on ubuntu ? [19:35] Moeez: please run "df -h" in a terminal and copy the output into paste.ubuntu.com and show the url in here [19:35] gear44: no. [19:35] gear44: no++ [19:35] gosh darn [19:37] i think its a difficult task for me i just installed this machine i am not a user i am just abeginner [19:38] i have the output but dont know how to copy and pate it some where [19:38] what happens if I install custom glibc ? [19:38] can someone tell me why i cant get samba to work? :/ [19:38] Moeez: use your mouse [19:38] Moeez, hilite the text in terminal then ctrl-shift-c [19:38] that is not a "i am linux beginner" task. that is a "i use a computer" task. [19:39] to paste: ctrl-v [19:39] gear44: the question is: what ubuntu are you on and why do you need a new glibc? [19:39] gear44: expect everything to break. glib is fundamental. If you need an alternative glib for a particular app, install it somewhere the system won't see it and set LD_LIBRARY_PATH before calling the app [19:40] k1l, 12.04, a program won't start without it [19:40] actually [19:40] "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found" [19:40] why does libstdc++ need glib3 [19:41] Hi all. I am on ubuntu 14.04 LTS (just performed 'apt-get dist-upgrade' 2 minutes ago) and I have problems install wine. "sudo apt-get install wine" gives me this http://paste.linux.chat/view/17287288 , saying it depends on wine1.6 or 1.8 but none of them is going to be installed. How can I proceed? [19:42] jonascj: did you add a third party respository¿ [19:42] jonascj: what gives you a "sudo apt update &&sudo apt full-upgrade"? [19:42] jonascj, tried sudo apt-get update ? I'm guessing here [19:42] gear44: it doesn't. Your program will be loading the glibc library via standard lib [19:43] Hi every one.i have a problem with apt-get that i cant Remove or install any pkg.also "apt-get -f install" doesnt work.Here's what i did: https://paste.ubuntu.ir/mqygyp [19:43] mcphail, ok [19:43] gear44: "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" [19:44] jonascj, no, sudo apt-get update [19:44] after the upgrade [19:44] jonascj: did that run without giving errors? [19:44] k1l: you want to use just apt and not apt-get? [19:45] jonascj: its the new apt-get [19:45] farooghkz: can you run a "sudo apt update" and show that output with this "apt-cache policy liboxideqt-qmlplugin" in a pastebin? [19:45] k1l, "new" ? [19:46] gear44: yes. they made a new command "apt" to replace apt-get, apt-cache, etc. [19:46] oh I thought you meant APT [19:46] not the command [19:46] k1l, that computer is not connected to internet [19:47] it got a fancy progressbar :) [19:47] oh [19:47] k1l: "apt full-upgrade" says http://paste.linux.chat/view/d9e7752c [19:47] I usually just install everything from source .. saves me the trouble of using apt [19:47] jonascj: did you run a apt update just before? [19:48] jonascj: i would run those updates first [19:48] i use apt, saves me the tgrouble of having to use the source ... other viewpoint [19:48] k1l: yes, "sudo apt update" (which gave similar output to apt-get update, listing repos it is going through), and then "sudo apt full-upgrade" which gave the output I pasted here http://paste.linux.chat/view/d9e7752c [19:48] gear44: the ubuntu way is to use the packagemanagement. [19:48] MonkeyDust, I prefer customizability :> that's why I use Arch as my main OS and Gentoo as my secondary [19:49] k1l, my personal machines don't have pkg manager xD [19:49] well [19:49] gear44: ok. so lets stick to actual ubuntu in here then. [19:49] not the Debian-type apt-get/apt [19:49] ok :P [19:49] (I was earlier, my server is hosted elsewhere) [19:49] sorry was DC [19:49] back online [19:50] "apt-get install wine" still says it depends on wine1.6 or wine1.8 : http://paste.linux.chat/view/17287288 [19:51] jonascj: did you install those updates now? [19:52] farooghkz: well, you installed a package and that package needs that depencies now. so i would say download that depencies from packages.ubuntu.com and install them with "sudo dpkg -i package1.deb package2.deb...." [19:52] I don't understand why a program that I compile on the same Ubuntu machine doesn't work [19:52] -_- [19:53] k1l: yes, I said 'y' to those 12 updates, it installed without any errors, if I run "apt full-upgrade" now it says there is 0 things to do, and/but a list of non-needed packages. [19:53] k1l, i know that i can install pkgs with that but how to remove a pkg? [19:53] jonascj: ok. now please show a "apt-cache policy wine" in a pastebin [19:54] farooghkz: sudo apt-get purge package [19:54] hey folks, anyone know how to install vmware horizon client on ubuntu 15.10? I ned to get access to a remote windows desktop on a vmware server, bloody stupid proprietary stuff. [19:55] k1l, ok thx i will try [19:55] k1l: http://paste.linux.chat/view/fb183b80 [19:55] does anyone know why a program that I compile on the same Ubuntu machine doesn't work ? "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found" [19:55] gear44: the libc versions are different [19:56] ikonia, compiled on the same machine ? [19:56] if i install visual studio code from u-make, is there a way to update it without reinstalling? [19:56] jonascj: doesnt work [19:58] k1l: sorry, http://paste.linux.chat/view/2c144256 [19:59] jonascj: so its from a ppa. and that seems to be messing with the packagesystem [20:00] k1l: Maybe I tried to follow this: https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu [20:00] k1l: could I remove the ppa and try ubuntus' base included version instead? [20:00] jonascj: yes. use ppa-purge for that [20:00] .... [20:03] gear44: then it's missing a library [20:03] or a different version than what it expects [20:04] ikonia, I got it fixed not anyway [20:04] now * [20:04] now it's a different error [20:06] does umake just not have any update system? [20:06] ok, nope, tried dpkg adding 386 architecture, updated and still no vmware viewer/horizon packages anywhere.. added canonical partners.. anyone know if it's supplied anyware in a reasonable decent up to date version? [20:07] k1l: after purging the wine ppa, doing update and dist-upgrade I am down to "the following packages have unmet dependencies: wine: depends wine 1.6" [20:08] what shows "apt-cache policy wine" now? [20:08] what is a normal amount of RAM for the kernel to use on a desktop Ubuntu system? I have a GUI desktop on 14.04 running the Unity desktop, and the kernel uses about 1.3 GB for Slab data. Is this normal? [20:10] i got a question...i'm doing an rsync from server 'a' (as root) to server 'b' (using -e ssh ... as user 'x', with sudoers file allowing user 'x' to use sudo rsync so i can user --numeric-ids). i want to precreate a directory on server 'b' with ssh 'x'@'b' "mkdir /some/dir" so that /some/dir would be owned by user 'x'. and finally a question - i want to then rsync from server 'a' to 'b' inside /some/dir (using sudo rsync) WITHOUT [20:10] changing the owner:group of /some/dir - how? [20:11] Hello [20:12] hi === anonymous is now known as Guest48510 [20:12] .q [20:12] what is the classic workbench dirctory in linux. the directory where you play around, your workbench [20:13] !chown [20:13] An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions [20:13] raketensilo, I created ~/MyTemp for that [20:16] raketensilo, if you have no clue where to put a program for all users, /opt/ would be the place to be [20:16] Revian1: if that was for me, i don't think that generic file permissions wiki will help me with this one... [20:17] predmijat, What are you trying to do? [20:18] well...i kinda explained that in detail right before you gave me the help.ubuntu.com link [20:19] predmijat, 'chown $owner:$group /path/dir' where $owner and $group need to be changed to your needs. chown can also be used recursively. see man chown for more [20:21] Revian1: i can't chown. user x can only create dir with x:x, but when i later rsync to that dir using sudo rsync because i need numeric ids, rsync will change owner of that dir to root:root, i can't later chown it with user x [20:22] If I do "apt-get install TLP".. Is TLP configured by default to push CPU to performance when running game with POL ? [20:23] pozdrav svima [20:23] predmijat, I've never used rsync, but it sounds like rsync needs the owner and perms to be sync'd as well. [20:23] jel ima neko iz Bosne [20:23] ili da prica Bosanski??? [20:24] adis: english? [20:24] ok ! [20:24] Revian1: yeah, i think you don't understand everything and that is ok :) thanks anyway [20:25] predmijat, You may be right. Sorry I couldn't be more help === zz is now known as Eclipse === Eclipse is now known as zz [20:32] "aptitude --install winehq-devel" gives this interesting output http://paste.linux.chat/view/afbd712d , there seems to be something funky about libcgmanage0. The versions for 32bit and 64bit does not match. [20:38] jonascj: Begs the question where "libcgmanager0" is coming from . What returns ' apt-cache policy libcgmanager0 ' ? [20:40] jonascj: adding the 32bit architecture is deprecated. ubuntu is multiarch.

[20:53] k1l: so maybe that is what fucked this up? The wine page just lists it as a step in installing wine on "ubuntu" (not specifically ubuntu 14). [20:53] jonascj: yes [20:55] k1l: yes it probably fucked it up? Can I undo it? [20:55] Hey [20:55] quo vado [20:55] craysiii: file a bug to that package and see what the developers say about it. [20:55] How can I adjust the size of an icon on a ToolButton in QML? [20:55] I have Toolbutton { id: "iconId"; iconSource: "images/icon_name.png" } thus far [20:55] The ToolButton is the child of a RowLayout whose parent is ToolBar [20:55] k1l that hardly seems the appropriate action [20:56] craysiii: ? [20:56] i asked if umake has update functionality [20:56] you said file a bug report [20:57] can someone recommend a good file manager with a large preview pane for image files? [20:57] dolphin has a preview pane I think [20:58] Dolphin* [20:58] craysiii: that sounds like you want a update for something that happens inside the program. so talk to the devs [20:58] cool; [20:58] no, im looking to update visual studio code which was installed via umake. i can't find any proper documentation on umake. visual studio code does not allow update from within their app which is why i am stuck trying to do it within umake [20:59] just reinstall it with umake [21:00] jonascj: " 404 Page Not Found " on that last link . try again ?

[21:27] hi [21:27] no, its too hard to set up. lol [21:27] Girly_, do you need your own email server? [21:27] That's what I figured but I am in the mood for the challenge though. :) [21:28] there are distros already configured [21:28] gear44 i meant украины [21:28] nikakikh problem rootware dlya / ne prisoyedinit'sya [21:28] i used https://github.com/denilsonsa/udev-joystick-blacklist to fix my keyboard being detected as a joystick, but it didn't work. What's worse though is that now my media volume keys don't work and the left arrow key mutes volume. The end increases voume and the right arrow key decreases it. How do I fix the keyboard settings? [21:28] Compdoc I have a server Ubuntu i386 latest version. I did an apt-get install Postfix and not able to work with it. I suppose I need to do more homework. [21:29] Girly_: email servers are far from trivial to set up, maintain, and secure. i'd strongly recommend against doing it yourself [21:29] Girly_, why Ubuntu i386? you must have an old 32bit cpu [21:30] It is 32 bit. I don't think that is a main issue though. [21:30] Girly_: running a mailserver is not " i click here and everything is fine" task. you need to do a lot more to get it running properly. that is why most people dont even start with setting that up. or they end up running a spam machine [21:30] Well K11 a spam machine is not what I prefer. Good point and well taken thanks. :) [21:30] I used to run my own, but it because too much of a hassle. Now I use google apps, much easier, works everywhere on everything, integration is seamless with my smartphone, etc [21:31] Girly_, you might have a look at SME Server, which is what I use for an email server. you could run it in a virtual machine, if you had a 64bit cpu [21:32] Compdoc I do use Virtual Box VBOX with LXDE Debian on it. [21:32] Ben64: Google's monopoly is getting more and more prominent :) [21:32] I, for one, welcome our new Google overlords [21:32] Girly_, that might work, but VB isnt usually running 24/7 [21:33] Not at the moment Compdoc. [21:33] It does integrate well into your Google-everyday-life :) [21:33] Girly_, an email server needs to run all the time [21:33] I feel more secure with emails going directly to my personal server rather than gmail and other places if you know what I mean. [21:34] i used https://github.com/denilsonsa/udev-joystick-blacklist to fix my keyboard being detected as a joystick, but it didn't work. What's worse though is that now my media volume keys don't work and the left arrow key mutes volume. The end increases voume and the right arrow key decreases it. How do I fix the keyboard settings? [21:34] Girly_, your ISP might block port 25 for incoming mail [21:34] mine does [21:35] if they don't, it might be against TOS [21:35] Girly_: I get what you are saying, but it takes a great deal to make it as secure as Gmail is (ignoring Google back doors, goverment backdoors etc.). Screw up a tiny little things and you ahve things going in clear text to the wrong places [21:36] protip - email is going to go in clear text anyway [21:36] Compdoc my ISP does block it but you can designate other ports. I strictly ordered my ISP not to throttle my bandwidth and block ports. I can do an NMAP port scan for that. [21:36] Girly_: you actually can't use other ports if you want it to work [21:37] k1l: I do not see this problem in a clean ubuntu 14.04 without the add-architecure command. So I have screwed something up in this install... [21:37] Example Comcast has blocked ports for emails and changed it to other ports. I hate that tactic. [21:38] There are ways to get around it though. [21:38] 50 === Swish[\] is now known as Swish [21:42] Hi everyone [21:44] i am very enthusiastic about getting started with the open source community and start contributing can anyone suggest me some easy projects to start with ! [21:44] Compdoc I am on the website for distrowatch. Do I need to compile SME? [21:46] Girly_, no. it comes in 32 and 64 bit iso. you boot from the cd and install it. use 'server only'. dont use it as a firewall [21:46] type /join lynchniggers [21:46] and get support from the forums and email list, if there is one [21:47] Thanks Compdoc. I will do some homework on that . :) [21:47] once you learn it, and learn spamassassin modules, you can enable some great features [21:47] pri: Entry level : http://cheesehead-techblog.blogspot.com/2015/10/point-new-participants-to-find-task.html ; http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2260620&p=13206678#post13206678 .

[21:57] hello i need help getting my ubuntu installation on my sony svd11225cxb [21:57] the installation and partition went good [21:57] the only thing i do not see is the grub menu or selection of OS [21:58] Looking to set up my own private RSS (username/password or SSL Cert (would be better)) for an mp3 podcast feed. While local network, the computer in question still has a real IP that can get to it. [21:58] I'm new to the subject. So I will need to know how to RSS feed those files and password or certificate protect that feed. [21:58] hi, on my server I was unable to boot because of this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/631362/error-getting-authority-error-initializing-authority-could-not-connect-no-suc error so I commented a line in /etc/fstab but now I have read-only system, someone to help me how to change /etc/fstab to have a normal system? [21:58] Any good starts? [21:59] is this a chat for help with linux? [21:59] auvajs, partitions running as read only ? [21:59] mostly ubuntu ubuntu750, yes [21:59] avdi, find problems of inodes in dmesg [21:59] Thanks guys for the input. It is always a pleasure to speak with the nice folks here. Take care. [22:00] ubuntu750: K; Show the channel what we are working with . pastebin ' sudo parted -l ' . [22:00] Anyone knows why this is not working: 'echo "this is a test" | text2wave -scale 2 -f 44100 | play -' and this is: 'echo "this is a test" | text2wave -scale 2 -f 44100 > test.wav ; play test.wav' [22:00] is there another option to load the grub without having to select repair grub [22:00] i tried that several times from the terminal and it had no effect [22:00] and from windows as well [22:00] Reading, https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/input/event-codes.txt - under what event type will BTN_LEFT go ? will it be under EV_REL ? [22:00] i do not know what is wrong [22:00] Braybaut: idk, before I commented the line I couldn't even start /etc/init.d/networking, so I commented it and now I can start networking, but I can't start apache2, probably because it's read only system, I'm not sure [22:01] My question about servering a private RSS feed is on an ubuntu machine. I dont know where to start. [22:01] Braybaut: this is my /etc/fstab atm: http://pastebin.com/BeVeqYY0 [22:01] thanks [22:02] auronandace2, change remount-ro to remount-rw [22:02] auvajs: " [22:02] show df -h === Bnaya_ is now known as Bnaya [22:02] auronandace2, find errors in apache2 logs and dmesg logs [22:02] auvajs: " === marshal0605 is now known as marshal0505 [22:03] # UUID=cfeb5d31-2080-4dfe-9dd9-bf0344e1832c / " with - root- commented out .. can not mount the file system . remove the '#' chatacter . === bekks_ is now known as bekks [22:04] Braybaut: Bashing-om so uncommenting and changing remount-ro to remount-rw?

Remounting read only on errors is a safety measure. [22:06] find errors inodes in dmesg and boot.log auronandace2 [22:06] auvajs: No ! Just remove that '#' character . Mine for reference : UUID=3a47f1f1-ed1f-4134-b6aa-be101a7d97b4 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 ' . Boot up in recovery mode, and we remoount to make the change . [22:07] I just got a "new" used thinkpad, and worried I'll ruin something during installation. Is it critical that I defrag my hard disk prior? [22:07] write that: mount -o remount,rw / [22:07] new123: No, degrag before installing isn't needed. [22:07] Braybaut: Braybaut Jordan_U can't save the file :( does it mean I'm doomed? [22:09] auvajs, write this: mount -o rw,remount / after change line in fstab [22:09] auvajs, find the error in files logs [22:10] auvajs: One way; boot up recovery mode frpm grub . -> root console and type ' mount -o remount,rw ' to remount the root file system . [22:10] Braybaut: these are two commands one command? [22:10] I have 300GB on this machine right now and I do plan to use windows. I am not sure what size I should give to Linux and whether to do the regular install or to define extra partitions.. a bit confused about all this.. [22:10] could be: full size in partitions or error in inodes table, find error in logs files [22:11] Braybaut: ok I did [22:11] auvajs, twos commands === cptmashek_ is now known as cptmashek [22:11] Where can I ask about RSS Podcast feeds on ubuntu server? [22:11] Braybaut: now my line looks like this: UUID=cfeb5d31-2080-4dfe-9dd9-bf0344e1832c / ext4 errors=remount-rw 0 1 [22:11] Bashing-om: Bray90820 is it ok? [22:12] is it safe to reboot? [22:13] auvajs: Yeah .. verify " cfeb5d31-2080-4dfe-9dd9-bf0344e1832c ' from 'sudo blkid ' . [22:13] auvajs: is that the correct UID of the hard drive? [22:13] auvajs: NO! You were told by both Bashing-om and myself *not* to change "remount-ro" to "remount-rw". Change it back to "remount-ro". [22:13] ^^^ [22:13] Jordan_U: auvajs ^^ can not believe I missed that ! Thanks !! [22:13] hello, i have a 15.10 just installed, with package cache updated just now. trying to figure out why i do not have a 'netcf' package ("apt-get install netcf" does not find it) even though it's shown in 'main' here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/wily/+source/netcf ? [22:14] what that errors=remout-ro does is on hard drive or filesystem errors, it will moount in readonly for you to check on the errors. [22:14] Bashing-om: You're welcome :) [22:14] Jordan_U: ok so I did as you told, now I'm rebooting the system, what's the next step? [22:17] Bashing-om: what's the next step? so I rebooted in read-only system but now I can't even start networking there [22:17] what tools are there for Ubuntu 14.04.3 to VPN to an ikev2 server? [22:17] shrew [22:18] Shrew soft vpn [22:18] it's good [22:18] how about strongSwan? [22:19] smemsh: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=netcf&searchon=names&suite=wily§ion=all [22:19] auvajs: As I advised .. verify that there is no change in the UUIDs - that long number sequence - compare that number is present in the ' sudo blkid ' output . Then reboot if looks good . [22:19] jafostes, is there an ubuntu package for it? === bazhang_ is now known as bazhang [22:20] hostapd, dnsmasq? [22:20] smemsh, that pages says it's in the universe repo === cptmashek_ is now known as cptmashek [22:20] Bashing-om: I verified it, it's ok but again I booted in read-only system which sucks [22:21] squinty: interesting, on this page: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/wily/+source/netcf under "versions published" there is: "netcf 1:0.2.6-1ubuntu1 (main)" <-- does this "main" mean it's in main repo? [22:22] auvajs: Then I suggest that the file system is corrupt, and the system is saving it's self from destruction . A liveDVD and run a file system check . === MrJack1 is now known as MrJack === Kins_ is now known as Kins === adante_ is now known as adante === mnepton is now known as mneptok [22:23] squinty: i.e. covered by following line in sources.list: "deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ wily main restricted" [22:23] smemsh: the source package is in main, but the binary package is in universe === Immutef_ is now known as Immutef [22:24] nacc: i see, i didn't realize that was possible (source package in main, binary in universe) [22:25] Bashing-om: I don't have a physical access to the computer, it's a virtual server [22:25] auvajs: Is this a machine that you have physical access to? I ask because it appears to be a Xen guest which I would expect from a VPS. [22:25] Jordan_U: yup, it's a vps [22:25] hello [22:26] Jordan_U: I don't have a physical access to it [22:26] alternative onenote for linux? [22:26] smemsh: i tink it's because libvirt relies on a binary package produced by src:netcf, and so at least one of the binary packages produces by src:netcf is in main (and so the src is too) [22:26] smemsh: but not all the binaries are in main [22:26] auvajs: Can you pastebin the output of "dmesg"? === degarr is now known as mrkiwi [22:27] nacc: yes libvirt uses the netcf library to enumerate host interfaces [22:27] nacc: i see now, good to know. thanks [22:28] Jordan_U: no cause I can't even connect to the vps via ssh now, I have only access to some shell via vps configuration, but I can't cp from the shell, but I can take screenshots [22:28] does gnome 3.18 work on ubuntu? [22:30] Jordan_U: but it's many pages, 15-20, what are you particularly interested in? [22:31] auvajs: Any error messages relating to block devices or filesystems. [22:31] Will there be official RPi images for Xenial? [22:32] Jordan_U: dmesg | grep "error" is enough? [22:32] hi ppl! I just installed 14.04 alongside windows 8.1. Then installled the bootfix for the uefi thing. Anyone knows if I can install the BURG on top of this? [22:33] and if so, is it too complicated? Thx [22:33] Jordan_U: http://imgur.com/SqfThzw [22:33] Salo187: BURG has been dead for more than 5 years. I can help you configure a grub theme though. [22:35] auvajs: Please pastebin your current /etc/fstab. [22:37] Jordan_U: http://i.imgur.com/TkXtas1.png .. I [22:37] hello [22:37] shibboleth: AIUI, the newer rpis use a newer arm version, which means no special builds are required; plain Ubuntu arm will work [22:37] can anyone help me sort things out with a dual cpu system? [22:37] auvajs: It is honestly getting frustrating to have to keep telling you that "errors=remount-rw" is wrong and should not be in your /etc/fstab. If I see it again I am giving up trying to help you. [22:38] shibboleth: rpi 2b and greater, I think [22:38] shibboleth: #ubuntu-arm [22:39] in doing an apt-get update, the system hangs on "100% [Working]". How can I fix this? [22:39] artois, I know. The Pi will require some specific blobs and configs in /boot (p1) and VideoCore stuff [22:39] shibboleth: yup, it has some closed bits [22:39] Jordan_U: ok sorry, at first I changed it but I tried to change it back to be able start networking so I can connect to proper ssh to the server.. I change it to remount-ro now.. sorry again [22:40] some competitors do not, FYI [22:40] beaglebone for one, IIRC [22:41] Jordan_U: Thx what should I do then? [22:41] can anyone help out with a dual cpu system? [22:41] auvajs: Please boot again with a correct /etc/fstab and then post screenshots of any relevant looking error messages from dmesg. [22:42] Jordan_U: yup but I'm unable to save the file now cause I again have read-only fs, how can I switch to read fs? mount -o rw,remount / doesn't work now [22:43] auvajs: It's "sudo mount -o remount,rw /". [22:44] in doing an apt-get update, the system hangs on "100% [Working]". How can I fix this? [22:44] * Bashing-om slides Jordan_U A large cup of Columbian coffee . [22:45] * genii sips [22:45] Jordan_U: no :( http://i.imgur.com/vYMjnb4.png [22:48] Salo187: Does the file "/boot/grub/themes/starfield/theme.txt" exist on your system? [22:50] I could use some help using gparted to add more disk space to my ubuntu VM (no answer on #gparted). I presently only have "/dev/sda" allocated, and I have an unallocated "/dev/sdb". I guess the first step is creating a partition table, but I don't know what type I should use. [22:50] Jordan_U: no, not even the themes folder [22:51] auvajs: sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/xvda1 / [22:53] Jordan_U: tnx, now it's errors=remount-ro so I can reboot? [22:53] Salo187: sudo apt install grub-theme-starfield [22:57] Jordan_U: so I rebooted with your instructions, here's dmesg | grep error: http://i.imgur.com/D4LBw8o.png [22:57] Jordan_U: alright it installed, can i reboot straight away? [22:58] Salo187: No. You need to configure it to be used. [22:59] why does firefox on ubuntu has the titlebar without option of removing it, but on windows it's removed and there's an option to add or remove it? [22:59] Salo187: Add the following line to /etc/default/grub: GRUB_THEME="/boot/grub/themes/starfield/theme.txt" [23:00] new123, Difference and compatibility with the window managers? [23:01] Salo187: Then run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -pcritical grub-pc" (assuming that this is a BIOS based installation rather than UEFI) and pastebin the output. [23:01] Revian1 yea, but if anything, the minimalist approach of Ubuntu/Gnome should welcome no titlebar... === erwin is now known as easyOnMe [23:02] need help here [23:02] Jordan_U: alright you got me with that one.... how should I know? I had to go to windows UEFI, but then I also had to switch order in bios for the installation. [23:03] I am maintaining a vps on digital ocean for some reason I got these error messages shown in this screenshot [23:03] http://imgur.com/O059IQC [23:03] here is the issue [23:03] I made these terminal commands prior to sudo apt-get dist-upgrade [23:03] sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade [23:03] Jordan_U: should i run it anyway? [23:04] then I was given a message like this [23:04] Salo187: Run the following command "[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS [23:04] 0 updated, 0 newly added, 0 removed, 10 not upgraded [23:04] so when I saw this I tried [23:04] Salo187: [ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS [23:04] sudo apt-get dist-upgrade [23:04] then I got some messages asking if I want to upgrade I type Y and press enter [23:05] Jordan_U: says UEFI [23:05] then I was asked a question whether I want to proceed as the source is not verifiable I still type Y and press enter [23:05] Salo187: OK. Have you already modified your /etc/default/grub? [23:05] then the error message on this screen shot: http://imgur.com/O059IQC === savino___ is now known as savino [23:08] easyOnMe, so utopic updates are not working [23:08] OerHeks: yup [23:09] easyOnMe, does that vpn provider supply upgraded images? [23:09] vpns are heavily tweaked, so normal upgrade should not work [23:09] easyOnMe, http://mirrors.digitalocean.com/ubuntu/dists/ in your web browser as you will see there is no "utopic" directory available [23:09] Jordan_U: Yes I added the line. BTW before I asked, I installed this super-boot-manager thinking it would have a noob-gui, but then i realized i didn't knew what i was doing anymore, so i stopped and didn't mess with it . [23:10] easyOnMe: 14.10 is shut down. upgrade to a supported release [23:10] utopic 14.10 is long time eol, use a trusty lts or wily image? [23:10] Jordan_U: is it relevant or should i do something about that first? [23:10] k1l: so what will I do not [23:10] Salo187: I don't recommend using GUI frontends for GRUB, I don't trust any that I've tried (though I haven't tried any in years). If you haven't actually run it then it shouldn't affect anything. [23:11] how can I check my ubuntu version using the console [23:11] Salo187: Now run "sudo grub-install && sudo update-grub". You should see a message about it finding the theme. [23:11] easyOnMe: lsb_release -d [23:11] easyOnMe: its a vps, you can probably get a new image on it from your vps control panel [23:11] easyOnMe: but if its using 14.10 (utopic) sources its a 14.10 [23:12] Jordan_U: I did run it, but didn't change anything. [23:13] Jordan_U: alright. He says it's done [23:13] Salo187: I don't know what it might have done then. For now let's just hope that it doesn't interfere. [23:13] Salo187: Did it mention finding the theme? [23:13] easyOnMe: and if you dont want to upgrade every 6 months (which you dont want on a server) dont use non-LTS versions as a server. [23:13] Installing for x86_64-efi platform. [23:13] Installation finished. No error reported. [23:13] Generating grub configuration file ...

[23:14] k1l: yes [23:14] I understand now [23:14] but right now what I can I do to change to 14.04 lts [23:14] auvajs: sudo touch /forcefsck [23:14] I was a noob back then when I started all these [23:14] easyOnMe: actually: your system is a security issue since 23.07.2015 [23:15] http://paste.ubuntu.com/15011952/ [23:15] auvajs: That should force an fsck to be performed at next boot, which will hopefully fix the filesystem errors. I hope that you also have backups of any important files on this filesystem though. [23:15] sorry about that [23:15] easyOnMe: you cant downgrade to 14.10. you need to upgrade to 15.04 (which is dead since one week, too) and then update to 15.10. and then in 6 months update to 16.04 [23:16] miss-pasted [23:16] Jordan_U: http://paste.ubuntu.com/15011952/ [23:16] easyOnMe: so i would make a clean 14.04 install, tbh. [23:16] wow [23:16] lo [23:16] lol [23:16] that is tbh [23:16] whatis tbh [23:16] easyOnMe: to be honest [23:17] k1l: ok got it [23:17] Salo187: Great. Now reboot and you should get the Starfield theme at boot. There are also other themes available, but they're not packaged yet. To use other themes just copy the theme directory to /boot/grub/themes/ and change the line in /etc/default/grub to point to the correct theme's theme.txt . [23:17] Jordan_U: I did as you told, and rebooted, but no change [23:17] k1l: are there no other approach man [23:17] Jordan_thx! brb [23:18] auvajs: Does "ls /forcefsck" show that the file exists? (Be careful to avoid typos. [23:18] so I have to use 14.04 lts then and have a clean droplet [23:18] easyOnMe: update to 15.04, then to 15.10 (and in near future to 16.04. 16.04 got 5 years support since its LTS) [23:18] Jordan_U: No such file or directory [23:19] auvajs: Did you get an error message when you ran "sudo touch /forcefsck" before? [23:19] Jordan_U: no [23:20] auvajs: Are you able to access the grub menu when the VPS boots? [23:20] Jordan_U: I'm not sure [23:20] Jordan_U: I'll probably get disconnected from the web console while rebooting [23:21] auvajs: Well, you need to run fsck, and I don't know if running fsck is safe while the FS is mounted, even if it is mounted ro. Do you have backups of all important data? [23:22] Jordan_U: no [23:22] Jordan_U: ok it worked. but needs to configure the resolution and reduce the boot options (3 different windows options) [23:23] auvajs: That's not good. I would not be surprised if you have already lost or corrupted some files. [23:24] Jordan_U: hm.. but now it's too late [23:27] auvajs: Any writes you make to the filesystem could possibly damage it more. Your safest bet is to call your VPS and ask them to help you recover your files. [23:27] Jordan_U: I can show you errors from journalctl -xb [23:28] k1l: why not go straight to 16.04 lts [23:29] easyOnMe: that is not how ubuntu upgrades work. [23:29] auvajs: If the files aren't that important and you want to try creating the /forcefsck file again (which has a slight chance of causing more damage but will likely get things working again if it works) then try "sudo mount -o remount,rw / && sudo touch /forcefsck && sync && sudo mount -o remount,ro / && systemctl reboot". [23:29] Does having multiple workspaces enabled have an effect on gaming performance? [23:29] easyOnMe: you can only got LTS -> LTS which is 14.04 to 16.04. but you choose 14.10. so that is the rootcause [23:29] k1l: what is the difference between distros that has .04 and .10 in them [23:29] Jordan_U: http://imgur.com/a/QcUKW if it helps [23:30] easyOnMe: the month when it was released [23:30] k1l: like I admitted I was a noob back then === Monthrect is now known as Piper-Off [23:30] k1l: so you mean they are essentially the same distros [23:30] auvajs: 404 not found [23:30] easyOnMe: year 2014. 4th month makes it 14.04. 2014 10th month makes it 14.10. every 2 years its a LTS (12.04, 14.04,16.04) [23:31] I thought those with .04 are always on lts while those .10 do not have any lts [23:31] easyOnMe, 04 = april 10 = october, 14.04 is LTS has support extend [23:31] k1l: oh now I know [23:31] easyOnMe: they all have a different state of program versions. and have differences like systemd was made standard since 15.04 [23:31] man are there no os that has say 10 years lts [23:32] Thats interesting about the months thx [23:32] makes me wonder why im on 14 04 [23:32] Jordan_U: http://imgur.com/A8xiAYT http://imgur.com/e3yToST http://imgur.com/PtetORO http://imgur.com/l17JjcJ http://imgur.com/QVFhKVZ [23:32] k1l: but your info is really educational for me now [23:32] easyOnMe: just stay on LTS. so make a clean 14.04 LTS intsall. that got 5 years from the start, still more than 3 years now [23:33] k1l: yup [23:33] but is there a way to upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 without having to reinstall everything like start from scratch again [23:33] easyOnMe: yes [23:33] because those reinstallations can kill [23:34] you have to define ssh [23:34] install firewall [23:34] that is the "LTS upgrade". it is from 14.04 to 16.04 (when the 16.04.1 (first servicepack) is released) [23:34] those are mundane tasks alreay man [23:34] auvajs: Call your VPS host and ask them to help you recover the data, or help you boot from a LiveCD iso/rescue system/etc. [23:34] k1l: so you mean I do not have to reinstall [23:35] Jordan_U: and what's the cause of the issue, any idea? [23:35] easyOnMe: you can still upgrade to 15.04, then to 15.10 any have to upgrade in the next 3 months to 16.04. but that is a lot more effort than make a clean proper 14.04 install now. [23:35] k1l, using disk-upgrade [23:35] but if 14.04 and 14.10 are the same versions how can I not upgrade to 16.04 then [23:35] Braybaut: no. not on ubuntu [23:35] auvajs: No idea. [23:36] easyOnMe: no. they are not the same! [23:36] Jordan_U: I just rebooted today, and the reboot failed.. didn't do any changes to the system lately [23:36] k1l: if I made a new install of 14.04 and want to upgrade to 16.04 without having to reinstall again [23:36] what is the terminal command to do that [23:36] k1l, view that https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-upgrade-ubuntu-12-04-lts-to-ubuntu-14-04-lts the process is similar!! [23:36] easyOnMe: there is no way than the 2 i showed you: reinstall to 14.04 or upgrade step by step to 15.04, 15.10 and 16.04 in 3 months [23:36] Jordan_U: can i change the Resolution on the Grub file on etc/default? [23:37] easyOnMe: yes. i explained you now 3 times. that you can do the online upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 [23:37] easyOnMe: but you cant go directly to 16.04 from your 14.10 now. [23:38] k1l, this process is similar from 14.04 to 16.04 https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-upgrade-ubuntu-12-04-lts-to-ubuntu-14-04-lts [23:38] Salo187: Yes, GRUB_GFXMODE : http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html#Simple-configuration [23:39] Hey guys, Does having multiple workspaces enabled have an effect on gaming performance? [23:39] easyOnMe: its the same command as you use from 14.10 to 15.04. the difference is the version you are on. [23:40] I installed php + nginx where the hell does php store its logs? [23:40] :) [23:41] zquad, where logs of php and nginx ? [23:42] Jordan_U: I think I'll risk it and try to do the force fs check [23:42] easyOnMe: to make it more clear: you always need to upgrade to the next version: 14.04 -> 14.10 -> 15.04 -> 15.10 -> 16.04 | except when you are on 14.04 you can overtake to the next LTS 16.04. but since you are on 14.10 you cant "overtake". [23:43] k1l: ok noted with thanks man [23:43] this is just a bit tiresome though [23:44] but good that you got me educated on these different version and the process of upgrading them [23:44] k1l: one more thing [23:44] easyOnMe: so now you can do the online update to 15.04, then to 15.10 and in 3 months to 16.04. | or you make a clean new 14.04 install. and can upgrade when you want to 16.04 later. [23:44] esde_, the process is iqual in normal versions or LTS versions [23:45] Jordan_U: Ok thx. And how about reducing the options on the grub itself? [23:45] Jordan_U: I think one for Ubuntu, one for windows and one for a command line would be enough? [23:45] from 14.04 and want to upgrade to 16.04, using the command you gave or the tutorial link given the existing configuration will remain the same despite the new version right [23:46] I mean those ssh keys, firewall settings, ftp settings and all [23:46] easyOnMe: yes [23:46] including apache server, mysql server and what not [23:46] easyOnMe: they do on every online update. not only on the LTS update. [23:47] k1l: just to make myself clear and check if I understood what you said in your reply [23:47] when I reinstall a new 14.04 and configure everything again [23:48] easyOnMe: but there are still things that can go wrong. due to your settings beeing not compatible with the new version. so that is why servers tend to use LTS and are not updated every 6 months [23:48] those configuration I set when I reinstall 14.04 will remain the same should I upgrade to 16.04 later on [23:49] k1l: ok like what are those things that can go wrong just an example [23:49] as I am only worried about ssh keys, firewall, ftp settings, apache server, mysql server and php server [23:49] easyOnMe: that depends on your exact settings [23:49] that is all [23:50] so if your website has some fancy setting for a guestbook, that might not work with the new apache version. or such. [23:50] k1l: oh gladly I do not have those as of now [23:51] k1l:so 16.04 is not yet available then [23:51] so if you want to be very sure: make a exact copy in a VM and test the upgrade before you do it on the real server. that is what admins do [23:51] easyOnMe: 16.04 is not released. since its not the 4th month in year 2016 [23:51] Jordan_U: it seems the force fsck didn't run this time either [23:51] Jordan_U: even after using the command you wrote before [23:51] easyOnMe: you can't manage a stable release - do not consider a pre-release distribution [23:52] ikonia: you mean do the upgrade later [23:52] once I did 14.04 [23:52] Hello is it possible to install ubuntu mobile on a huawei phone ? [23:52] easyOnMe, is possible present problems of depends, is best use LTS Versions [23:52] easyOnMe: why are you considering an upgrade ? [23:52] giacomo1992: A better place to ask is #ubuntu-touch [23:52] easyOnMe: why do you need an upgrade / what benifit will an upgrade give you in your current needs ? [23:52] easyOnMe: wait for 16.04.1 getting released before you think about the upgrade [23:53] ikonia: because I am worried that my existing 14.04 might be incompatible with new versions of the lamp stack technology [23:53] k1l: ok [23:53] easyOnMe: what new versions of the lamp stack ? [23:53] that makes it clear [23:53] easyOnMe: what are you worried won't be compatible ? [23:53] why do you feel the need to even consider a move from 14.04 [23:53] ikonia: mysql version, apache version, php version [23:53] giacomo1992, not :c https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices [23:54] easyOnMe: if you stay on 14.04 - they won't change [23:54] easyOnMe: 14.04 is supported until april 2019. [23:54] easyOnMe: so why are you considering an upgrade [23:54] ikonia: ok but now the one in digital ocean is on that 14.10 [23:54] you struggle to manage your current machine, why are you even thinking about a change [23:54] which is sickening as I can not make a dist-upgrade work for the mysql part [23:54] easyOnMe: so you're using 14.10 now ? [23:54] "the mysql part" ??? [23:55] ikonia: see my earlier message it contains a screen shot [23:55] easyOnMe: that was a mistake. install 14.04. make a proper setup there. [23:55] k1l: yup [23:55] I will do it later [23:55] ikonia: he installed a 14.10 not knowing about support frames and upgrade pathts [23:55] I need to rest now [23:56] k1l: right, so all the repos are dead, I don't understand the "mysql part" statement ? [23:56] geez I've got a lot to learn [23:56] thanks so much k1l [23:56] I learned a lot from you today man [23:56] easyOnMe: pretty much every problem you have in this channel is of your own making - rushing in with incorrect info [23:56] good thing I stumble on that knowledge now than later [23:56] ikonia: honestly. that doesnt matter. [23:57] easyOnMe: it was already too late since your machine is a security issue since july 2015. [23:57] k1l: is it possible to upgrade it to 15.04 [23:57] never mind it is a lot more work [23:57] ok work on 14.04 then [23:57] 15.04 is dead too [23:57] easyOnMe: yes. ike i explained now 10times [23:57] thanks man [23:58] hence "your own making, rushing in with incorrect info" [23:58] ikonia: chill man [23:58] I am [23:58] I got some learning here already [23:58] easyOnMe: yeah, but you've been in here for months with the same problems over and over and over [23:58] next time I ask first before doing anything [23:59] ikonia: I am switching career into IT [23:59] so ? [23:59] I am a teacher by profession and training [23:59] IT is so new to me [23:59] so ? [23:59] hence I am here [23:59] learning each day [23:59] if you're a teacher you should be able to read/listen
