k1l_AthenaPvP: tried chromium to check?00:03
AthenaPvPk1l_: I would much rather use IE than Chrome.. But I'll give it a check.00:04
skinuxSeems to be having issue finding right package. I need PDO driver for PHP, installed php5-mysql but that didn't solve the issue.00:05
k1l_AthenaPvP: chromium00:05
k1l_AthenaPvP: that is the code of chrome, before google adds all the goole specifics.00:05
AthenaPvPk1l_: do they still support Java?00:06
k1l_AthenaPvP: yes. why shouldnt they?00:06
AthenaPvPk1l_: because Chrome doesn't.00:06
k1l_AthenaPvP: what?00:06
AthenaPvPk1l_: https://java.com/en/download/faq/chrome.xml00:07
AthenaPvPalso, k1l_ , I downloaded chromium and I have NO IDEA what I'm doing.. There's no install file to click,00:08
MultbrelchIs there a way (tool, program, etc.) that changes the colors of the screen?00:08
AthenaPvPMultbrelch: under customization./00:09
AthenaPvPSpelling OP.00:09
Multbrelch?, AthenaPvP00:10
AthenaPvPMultbrelch: sorry, I'm newer to Ubuntu as well. Let me look at it for a second.00:10
k1l_AthenaPvP: dont download from anywhere. just install the ubuntu package from the official ubuntu repoi00:10
thunderdomewhat is the best/easiest to use vnc server for ubuntu?00:10
k1l_AthenaPvP: install "chromium-browser" from the ubuntu repo00:10
AthenaPvPMultbrelch: settings > apperance.00:12
MultbrelchAthenaPvP, there you can adjust only the most important colors00:13
AthenaPvPMultbrelch: what are you asking to do, then?00:13
Chaos_Zerotrying to use pbis to integrate to windows domain. When user adds printer it does not use their authentication from logging in, it just says that the print is held for authentication and they must re-enter their credentials.00:14
AthenaPvPk1l_: it's a firefox issue, then.00:14
Chaos_ZeroAny way to have lpadmin automatically use the credentials they logged in with?00:15
k1l_AthenaPvP: try without the privacy badger thingy00:15
MultbrelchAthenaPvP, I do a DISPLAY redirection (via "setenv DISPLAY IPaddress") from an old SUN (Solaris 2.5) to an Ubuntu box (14.04) and get strange colors00:15

MultbrelchAthenaPvP, I tried xephyr and xnest but got only slightly improved results00:16
MultbrelchAthenaPvP, the point is that text in a window has some very dark grey color on a black background00:17
MultbrelchAthenaPvP, no I cannot modify the SUN cause this is by far too freaking00:18

daedelothis this supposed to be down?00:22
AthenaPvPk1l_: works if I disable both badger and uBlock, but now there are ads. x.x00:22
AthenaPvPdaedeloth: not that I'm aware of... They were doing some updates earlier..00:23
daedelothno apparently the version has reached end of life00:23
k1l_AthenaPvP: should work with ublock00:24
k1l_daedeloth: 14.10 is dead long time now00:24
k1l_daedeloth: you need to upgrade to 15.04 and then 15.10 asap00:24
genii15.04 will also soon be EOL00:24
daedelothyea old hotspot thingy I booted up00:24
daedelothso, that's willy right?00:25
k1l_genii: 15.04 is dead already.00:25
AthenaPvPk1l_: nope. I'm pretty sure ublock is causing the lag.00:25
k1l_AthenaPvP: hmm00:25
AthenaPvPk1l_: or at least the FPS drop.00:25
AthenaPvPk1l_: how process-hungry is chromium?00:25
geniik1l_: Repos have not yet been moved to old-releases, so it's still viable right now00:25
AthenaPvPk1l_: remember I'm the one with the poor processor, so I might just switch to chromium.00:25
k1l_daedeloth: you are on utopic. but vivid (15.04) is EOL too. and you need to upgrade again to wily (15.10)00:26
k1l_genii: but they dont get any updates. like the last glibc updates etc.00:26
daedelothk1l_, ok, thanks, I'm hopign dist-upgrade will do it00:26
k1l_daedeloth: no00:26
* AthenaPvP goes down to click the text bar... clicks on GIMP on accident because the panel opens up. "goddamn it.."00:27
daedelothit won't?00:27
daedelothin that case I'm cancelling it... got 3 minutes till the downloads are done :p00:27
k1l_daedeloth: you need to do the !eolupgrade (changing repos to oldreleases) to 15.04. and then the regular upgrade to 15.1000:27
k1l_daedeloth: on ubuntu we dont change the names in sources.list manually and use apt-get for a upgrade. we have do-release-upgrade for cli00:28
AthenaPvPk1l_: how process-hungry is chromium?00:28
k1l_AthenaPvP: not more than firefox00:28
AthenaPvPEh, good enough.00:28
AthenaPvPHow do I switch my default browser?00:29
AthenaPvPTook me 2 seconds. xD00:29
daedelothk1l_, that's upgrading me to vivd?00:29
daedelothah, that's still online, alright :)00:29
k1l_!eolupgrade | daedeloth00:29
ubottudaedeloth: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades00:29
k1l_daedeloth: you waited way to long. and now things are complicated.00:30
derp_commanderI've actually heard people say that chromium eats more memory than the latest editions of FFx00:30
k1l_daedeloth: for the future: stay on LTS if you dont want to upgrade every 6 months.00:30
AthenaPvPI'm back.00:30

dillon_senpai how can I make tixati my default magnet program?00:39
squintydillon_,  right click on magnet link -> open with -> look in /usr/bin for the program name and select it.  click the "use as default"00:41
dillon_thanx squinty00:42
Kevin`is it possible to install to lvm with the ubuntu desktop iso?00:44
dillon_thanks squinty it worked like a charm00:44
reisioKevin`: pretty sure, yeah00:44
reisioautomated, that is00:44
reisioit's obviously possible manually00:44
squintydillon_, good to hear  :-)00:45
Kevin`reisio: obviously.. but the options for auto are greyed out and the manual options are missing00:45
markwaltI'm running Xubuntu, but thinking about switching over to Ubuntu GNOME.  Anyone have any recommendations / observations regarding GNOME 3?00:46
dillon_is there anyway to set tixati so that when I close it, it will minimize it to the tray like transmission/qbtorrent and the other ones?00:46
Kevin`actually, it looks like the installer will pick up volumes if I create them before running the installer. that's fine with me and i'll test it now00:46
skomorokhIs systemd going to be required in 16.04?00:50
Kevin`i've had a 66% failure rate with systemd so far00:50
skomorokhIt worked for me in 15.04 but had some weird timing issue loading X for 15.10 and I noticed I could easily switch to upstart so I did that rather than invest time debugging it.00:51
k1l_skomorokh: i am not sure if there will be a upstart session still00:51
skomorokhk1l_: Are you sure that no decision has been made though?00:52
k1l_skomorokh: you can look up what the issue is. use systemd-analyze blame00:52
k1l_skomorokh: "just using upstart" is not a solution.00:52
skomorokhk1l_: I know, I'm being unhelpful by putting this off rather than figuring out what hit me and filling bug reports if that seems appropriate.00:53
Kevin`one of my failures with systemd either reconfigured the serial port or hanged the system completely (can't tell, no jtag). no way to debug that aside from adding print statements to the non-existant early init scripts :/00:53
skomorokhk1l_: But in the meantime, I'm curious to learn if I have an upcoming deadline for that I should be worried about :)00:53
k1l_there is an upcomming deadline. i am not sure if 16.04 will still support upstart00:54
k1l_because that would mean ubuntu needs to maintain upstart for 5 more years.00:54
Kevin`could always use sysvinit, that'll be around for 5 more years =p00:55
skomorokhk1l_: excellent point re: lts00:56

Madhumper69yes locally all works03:25
Madhumper69externally all works - ssh and apache website port 8003:25
path0gen"from the outside" like, some other random external IP? but you cant access it on the vpn03:25
Madhumper69even without vpn i cant access it i use vpn because my network is messed up i mainly used it for plex :P03:26

Madhumper69no its my own home made server03:28
s_cooperMadhumper69, man, you shoulda try to raise those serving ports... your description is confuse - I need a diagram03:28
path0genbasically i think he is saying the following:03:28
path0genhe can access every thing fine Locally. As in, from the box itself he can access the services03:28
path0genbut everything remote is inaccessible. Remote meaning both purely external AND via VPN03:29
s_cooperso the problem is: nobody out of the world can access that box03:29
Madhumper69well remotly my transmission works and webmin works externally like from the outside03:29
Madhumper69not apache and ssh03:30
path0genok so you can navigate to webmin from both vpn and pure external03:30
s_cooper"and webmin works externally like from the outside" <---- ???03:30
path0genlol just go with it03:30
Madhumper69exactly so does transmission03:30

lotuspsychjeMadhumper69: there is a nice #openssh channel, maybe they can help with ssh -X or something03:50
Madhumper69i put my firewall down until i new all worked then i was goign to activate it lol03:51
somsipMadhumper69: which is backwards03:51
DarkAceZhaha thanks somsip03:51
DarkAceZbut it didn't help03:51
somsipDarkAceZ: it clears it. It might fill up again but that's another issue03:52
DarkAceZit did work, for a second, but then, when another log message came through, it returned to the 6.4GB file03:52
Madhumper69well my monitor has 2xhdmi i could always use that for ui and from the outside use ssh that seems like it would be better for safeguarding my server03:52
DarkAceZsomsip: I believe I'm going to have to delete it, then reboot03:53
DarkAceZI just don't like rebooting03:53
somsipDarkAceZ: then, another issue. What you've attempted is like sticking electricians tape over your engine warning light in your car03:53
somsipDarkAceZ: fix the real issue, reboot if you have to. Sorted03:54
Madhumper69thanks for all the help guys, night03:54
DarkAceZwill do03:54

enzlbtynIf I make a new user, does all the installed packages transfer to him?04:14
enzlbtynI basically just want to make a new user without the packages from apt-get04:14
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: apt packages are almost always systemwide04:15
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: the user will be locked in his own /home04:15
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: what are you affraid of happening?04:16
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: pretty much all software in Ubuntu is part of an apt package04:17
enzlbtynlotuspsychje: I'm not afraid of anything, I just want to make sure that the steps to install my software is correct (in the sense of which apt packages to install)04:17
derp_commanderthat includes the kernel, the bootloader, the system utilities, etc.04:17
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: every user will be able to use the packages, but has seperate /home and config04:18
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: users do not, as a rule, have access to the package manager. they use the same software as you and everybody else, save for those that require the superuser04:18
derp_commanderallowing a user to install their own software in their own space with their own package manager is not, generally, something you would do04:20
enzlbtynI don't see why not?04:20
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: number 1: unlike Windows, software is not self-contained into one folder04:21
derp_commanderit's installed generally into a number of system-wide folders, with parts in /usr/bin, parts in /usr/lib, parts in /usr/share, parts in /etc, and so forth04:22
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: somebody else should not be able to mess up your (admin) system by installing random stuff like this04:22
enzlbtynYeah, but why not? Why doesn't apt-get install into somewhere like ~/usr/ or something, and the to have them by default in the path.04:22
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: do you want others to install stuff you dont know about?04:23
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: because a lot of software uses absolute paths for things04:23
enzlbtynwhy not?04:23
derp_commanderlotuspsychje: I think he already stated he was fine with it, I'm just stating the technical difficulties04:23
enzlbtynidk just seems stupid that I have to uninstall all my packages04:23
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: why would you have to?04:24
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: because then malicious users can takeover your system04:24
enzlbtynto re-produce my steps, from a clean install of ubuntu.04:24
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: wait, what are you doing?04:24
enzlbtynidgaf if they do though?04:24
lotuspsychjederp_commander: i think he wants a clean user without installed packages04:24
lotuspsychjebut remain his own installed ones04:25
enzlbtynexactly, I don't want to destroy what I've already done.04:25
enzlbtynwhatever, I'll just boot up a VM.04:25
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: well thats not how ubuntu works mate04:26
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: if you want others to mess with your system, youl need another Os04:26
enzlbtynthing is: if I made another user. I'd give it root access anyway04:26
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: yeah, you'd either need a VM, or a pretty complicated chroot scheme04:26
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: ...04:27
enzlbtynI just wanted to sandbox each user.04:27
derp_commandercan you please describe what it is you're doing before someone begins to think you're insane?04:27
enzlbtynderp_commander: The different users are me. So why does that matter?04:27
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: if the other user is also admin, when uninstalling a package, yours will be gone too04:27
enzlbtynwell it wouldn't be if packages were sandboxed, but they're not.04:27
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: yeah tell us your endgoal with all this04:28
lotuspsychjewhat are you trying to become?04:28
derp_commanderwhat are you trying to accomplish?04:28
enzlbtynI already told you about 5 times?04:28
enzlbtynI just want to reproduce steps from a clean install of ubuntu.04:29
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: but what for?04:29
enzlbtynTo ensure I'm not missing anything? It's as simple as that.04:29
enzlbtynBut in general, I don't see the big deal about sandboxing users.04:29
lotuspsychjeenzlbtyn: why do you want the user locked anyway?04:29
enzlbtynLike, for instance, if I was to share a computer.04:30
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: reproducing steps, like for a bug?04:30
=== bestucan1 is now known as bestucan

xanguaenzlbtyn: that's what the guest session is for04:30
lotuspsychjexangua: +104:31
derp_commanderI'm still trying to piece together the point of this exercise04:31
lotuspsychjexangua: but he wants the user to be able to install what he likes :p04:31
lotuspsychjexangua: and share admin right04:32
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: first I'll tell you that's horrible security practice. I know from personal experience04:32
enzlbtynI don't give a fuck about security lmfao04:33
enzlbtynAll users would have root access.04:33
enzlbtynDo you think I'm using a fucking server?04:33
derp_commanderenzlbtyn: second, on Windows you can generally install an arbitrary program to an arbitrary directory and it will work. That's almost never true on Linux?04:33

markwaltHaving a weird problem, that's probably really easy to fix, but I'm scratching my head.  I'm running Xubuntu 15.10, and I've set my user ID to not require a password on login, which, in past versions, I thought, caused it to autologin.  But now, for some reason, it stops on a login screen, gives me a login button.  It doesn't ask for a password, but it physically requires me to press a button.  Which is a bummer because it's my home server /06:46
markwaltTV unit, and I sometimes reboot it remotely, and I don't want to get up and walk across the room, dig out a mouse and press a button.  What am I missing?06:46

hateballmarkwalt: did you change login manager perhaps?06:53

hateballmarkwalt: use NFS over SMB if you can. SMB is a pain.07:30
markwaltWell, it is a pain, but I'm running SMB so my girlfriend can get files off the server.  She's got a Windows laptop and a Chrome Book.07:35
markwaltI've never played with NFS.  I'll have to look into it.07:35
hateballmarkwalt: Well you can serve your content using multiple protocols07:36
markwaltSure, I'm doing that now.  SSHFS for my linux boxes, and SMB for the rest of the world.07:36
markwaltI love SSHFS though, it's so easy.  Kinda slow on the throughput.07:38
huwjrhia - how long should I expect fschk to take on ~150gb of data? 350 partition07:38
hateballhuwjr: is it ext3 or ext4?07:38
huwjrext…4 i think!07:38
huwjrbut i get a warning about ext307:39
hateballhuwjr: ext3 takes a good while, ext4 should be quite snappy07:39
huwjrstill hours?07:39
hateballHours seem excessive but it all depends on the layout, are there tons of little files etc? And the speed of your drive obviously07:39
huwjrit’s an OLD server LAMP stack07:40
huwjrso yeah lots of little :(07:40
huwjrcouldn’t have happened at 4am instead of start of working day could it :D07:40
huwjrright force fschk i suppose07:40
huwjroh.. touch: cannot touch ‘/forcefsck’: Read-only file system07:42
StuckMojoanyone ever seen the Software Updater GUI continuously pop up even when there are no updates?07:46
StuckMojoi.e. right after running aptitude update; aptitude safe-upgrade07:47
huwjrhow can i get fschk to run if it’s readonly?07:49
hateballhuwjr: you cant, remount it writable07:49
StuckMojohuwjr: you can fsck an RO fs, you just can't fix it07:49
huwjrit’s not read only thuogh07:50
StuckMojothen why did you ask?07:50
huwjrbecause that’s my error :D07:50
StuckMojothen it *is* read-only07:50
StuckMojoif the fs gets certain errors, it will automatically remount readonly07:50
StuckMojo/dev/mapper/ginormica-root on / type ext4 (rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro,data=ordered)07:50
huwjryeah i get that07:51
StuckMojothis is generally a bad thing (tm)07:51
gareth__hey folks. What's the recommended way to upgrade from 15.10 to unstable Xenial?07:51
StuckMojoif you want to live dangerously, you can remount it RW and fsck it07:51
StuckMojoor you can boot from a live cd and run fsck, which is likely safer07:52
StuckMojoor usb stick or whatever07:52
huwjryeah thanks :)07:52
huwjrwill an install iso do?07:52
huwjri have one on the host07:52
StuckMojoof course, as i said, you *can* check a RO fs, you just can't fix errors you find07:52
StuckMojosure if you can make it boot from it, i think you can choose rescue or some such07:53
StuckMojoi would try checking it ro first, see what it says07:53
huwjrwon’t it auto want to check disk at reboot?07:53
StuckMojoif it's fubar, you might want to copy eveything off it you can in RO first, before you touch it07:53
StuckMojoit all depends how f*@#ed you are07:53
StuckMojoif there's really important stuff on there, back up what you can now07:54
huwjrdo i need to remount RW in order for a live cd/install disk to chkdisk ok?07:54
StuckMojono it won't be mounted at all (or shouldn't anyway, that's the point)07:54
StuckMojoi'm ass-u-me-ing this is your rootfs07:54
huwjrso live cd in, boot from that , check it07:55
StuckMojoor usb yeah07:55
StuckMojothere's almost certainly a usb image somewhere that's got just the bare needful to do this07:55
StuckMojobe careful just letting it try to fix a ton of stuff07:56
StuckMojothere's a reason it doesn't do that by default07:56
StuckMojoyou can very easily end up worse off than you are now07:56
gareth__Move from 15.10 to unstable Xenial? Anyone?07:56
StuckMojogranted that's not all that common, but when it happens, it sucks bigtime07:56
StuckMojoagain, i would urge you to copy off anything critical now07:57
huwjryeah have lots of backups07:58
StuckMojoah, then you could just say screw it and remount rw, and fsck away07:58
StuckMojorun with sissors, it's run07:58
StuckMojofun even07:58
squintygareth__,  might want to join #ubuntu+1 as that is the channel for upcoming releases07:59
gareth__cheers squinty07:59
StuckMojohuwjr: to do that, IIRC from long ago memory, it's something like mount /dev/foo -o remount or some such07:59
StuckMojojust man mount and search for remount07:59
huwjri was mid shutdown08:00
ren0v0hi, i have two ethernet cards, how do i go about disabling one of them?08:00
huwjrwas going to boot from iso08:00
StuckMojomeh, do it right then, it's good practice08:00
huwjrseems to have hung at shutdown so probably needs turning off now08:01
StuckMojoyeah likely trying to write to rootfs to shut down services08:01
StuckMojohuwjr: btw, dmesg should have had info about what error happened08:01
* StuckMojo heads back to bed08:02

kltrgI installed Wine and purged it since, but my Gnome menu still shows me a Wine submenu including the Windows application I was trying to  run using Wine. This means, there are still parts of Wine lingering around on my system. How can I deleted Wine completely?09:50
cfhowlettkltrg, sudo apt-get purge wine         then you probably need to manually kill the config file in your /home09:51
lotuspsychjeDrac0666: sudo halt -p working correctly09:51
kltrgcfhowlett, That`s what I did09:52
cfhowlettkltrg, also might need to manually remove entries from the menu09:52
Drac0666lotuspsychje, let me check09:52
kltrgcfhowlett, Judging by the (missing or not) icons, Wine itself seems to have been removed properly, but not the Adobe application I had installed.09:53
mcphailkltrg: purging an app does not remove all the modifcations the app has made in the user's home directory. This is by design. The wine shortcuts are probably under ~/.local/share/applications somewhere. If you track down the .desktop files and remove them, the menu entries are likely to go. But it is so long since I've used GNOME I can't rememeber how it populates its menu...09:54
cfhowlettkltrg, look for .wine in your /home09:54
Drac0666lotuspsychje, yes correctly09:54
lotuspsychjeDrac0666: might be user related, can you try create another user and shutdown from there?09:55

Zulu_TooHey Guys, there are so many computers out there on the market. Can anyone recommend the best 64 bit machine that works with Ubuntu?10:48
cfhowlettZulu_Too, there is no "best"10:48
mcphailtuor: oh well - wasn't that then ;)10:48
tuorI'll try 20000000 maybe it works10:48
Zulu_TooI suppose so.10:48
cfhowlettZulu_Too, most work quite well.  but for a truly customized experience, the Dell Developer Editions are hard to beat10:48
Zulu_TooI was looking for some suggestions not necessarily the best.10:49
tuormcphail, ah I think I found the unit: WARNING  The requested volume capacity will exceed the available pool space when the volume is fully allocated. (20480000000 M requested capacity > 411784 M available)10:49
Zulu_TooThanks cfhowlett for your input. Greatly appreciated.10:50
tuorso it has to be mb :)10:50
tuorah no. it's gb.10:50
mcphailtuor: aah. If it works, you should file a bug against the package with regards to the manpage10:50
tuornono. Was happy to early.10:50
Zulu_Toocfhowlett does that come with rack mounted units?10:51
mcphailtuor: I'm nowhere near a box to eperiment with that setup, I'm afraid, so I'm not going to be any help10:51
cfhowlettZulu_Too, whoa!  nope the developer editions are laptops.  sounds like you are talking about servers.  ask #ubuntu-server   ?10:52
Zulu_TooI see thanks :)10:52
tuormcphail, should I try #ubuntu-server to?10:53
tuorIt's a server setup.10:53
mcphailtuor: no harm in trying10:53
Zulu_TooI am running a headless wireless server with Ubuntu and it is working just fine. The latency is a bit slow. I think because of the IProviders.10:54
Zulu_TooIt disturbes me when they promise a service and they fall short of their promise. What a shame.10:55
ralpheeeeis there a ppa for termite terminal?10:56
Zulu_TooPublic Service: Two greatest Windows to Ubuntu connnection software is PuTTy  & WinSCP   The best tools on the web for free.10:58

Zulu_TooLotuspsychie I wasn't advertising. I was relaying what I learned from this channel 10 years ago. Thanks for the advice.11:00
lotuspsychjeralpheeee: maybe there are alternatives you can try? what exactly do you search for in a terminal?11:02
ralpheeeelotuspsychje: am on a netinstall / mini and looking to just a run WM (i3)...something lightweight...11:03
ralpheeeedont really want xfce4-terminal due to dependencies ...11:03
ralpheeeeu/rxvt the fonts issues drives me nuts...11:04
lotuspsychjeralpheeee: terminator, guake?11:04
NwSHeya guys a quick noob Q.. My server's dev sda1 boot partition is full and the whole server is down now.. Any ideas what I can delete in order to free some space?11:04
cfhowlettNwS, yep.  try sudo apt-get autoremove first11:04
NwScfhowlett, is that safe?11:05
cfhowlettNwS, yes.  see for yourself: man apt-get autoremove11:05
tsapiiralpheeee: if it's lightweight you want, there's always xterm :P11:05
k1lNwS: can you provide a "ls -al" from within that partition? but a "sudo apt-get autoremove" should remove some unused kernels when running that system11:05
ralpheeeeboth are very heavy on the resources...(terminator is a one stop shop for terminal emulators...probably the best out there...but just heavy)11:05
ralpheeeetsapii: :D11:06
cfhowlettNwS, you can also preview the command with apt-get -s autoremove11:06
NwScfhowlett, the server is so full I can't preview lol :P11:07
NwSI will give it a try11:07
lotuspsychje!info stjerm | ralpheeee how about this?11:07
ubotturalpheeee how about this?: stjerm (source: stjerm): lightweight terminal emulator. In component universe, is extra. Version 0.16-0ubuntu2 (wily), package size 24 kB, installed size 94 kB11:07
cfhowlettNwS, apt-get -s autoremove will simulate the command - not execute11:07
MonkeyDustNwS  try sudo aptitude purge ~c11:07
NwSWell the server is so full I can't run that11:07
k1lNwS: what does "the server is full" mean? can you put the errors in paste.ubuntu.com and show the link here?11:08
ralpheeeelotuspsychje: thxs11:09
NwSk1l, here http://paste.ubuntu.com/15178916/11:09
k1lcan you show a "df -h"11:09
lotuspsychjeralpheeee: or the lxterminal from lubuntu?11:09
ralpheeeelotuspsychje: yeah thought about that....last time i used it was not too thrilled with it...but waas a long time ago...11:10
NwSk1l, http://paste.ubuntu.com/15178921/11:10
cfhowlettNwS, yeah, you might the article I sent you useful.11:11
NwScfhowlett, I couldn't run the command11:12
cfhowlettNwS, http://www.unixmen.com/how-to-uninstall-the-old-kernels-in-ubuntu/11:12
NwSah let me check this out tyvm11:12
k1lNwS: its not /boot that is full. its the whole /11:12
NwSOh, yeah noob here sorry -.-"11:13
k1lNwS: is there anything you can manually remove from that 28GB?11:13
MonkeyDuststart with /tmp/* or so11:13
NwSk1l, I'm not even sure how..11:13
NwSOkie MonkeyDust tyvm11:14
k1lNwS: like any data you know you dont need anymore. i dont know what kind of data is on that server.11:14
MonkeyDustNwS  and in case you missed it:   sudo aptitude purge ~c   that's a tilde11:15
k1lNwS: you could run a "sudo du -hs /var/log"  to see if it was caused by a load of errors spamming the log messages.11:15
NwSk1l, dang 16GB11:15
NwSty for all the help guys, will try to delete some tmp files now and then clean the logs :/11:16
k1lNwS: ok, that is way too much. "ls -al /var/log/"11:16
NwSk1l, auth.log ~5GB, btmp 3GB, mail.log 8GB pretty much11:18
k1llooks like logrotate is not working11:19
NwSCan I remove anything from tmp?11:19
NwSSo I can free up some space11:19
NwSNot even sure what those files are tbh11:19
hateballNwS: you *could* stop syslog, kill offending logs (or move elsewhere) then start syslog again11:21
hateballif auth.log is 5GB that indicates some badness going on :p11:21
NwShateball, the server is 1 year old, never restarted and I guess I never cleaned any logs manually :/11:22
hateballNwS: the logs should rotate11:22
NwShateball, can I delete older logs safely? Like auth.log.4.gz (mainly the gz ones)11:26
hateballNwS: sure, you can delete any logs. Just decide if you want them first11:26
hateballNwS: I would stop syslogd tho, as the logs are gigantic, and freeing up space probably lets it continue writing to the logs11:27
hateballNwS: and then have a look at them using tail, if it's the same stuff being spammed over and over or something11:27
NwShateball, sudo service rsyslog stop (and then start)? Sorry for being 110% noob -.-"11:28
hateballNwS: yeah11:32
eahmedshendyAnyone know about softwares like "MobaXterm" or "Putty" on Linux?11:33
hateballNwS: that also lets you kill the live log files, and they will get recreated when you start the daemon again11:33
bekkseahmedshendy: NEither MobaXTerm nor Putty are actually needed, though a Putty Clone exists.11:33
hateballeahmedshendy: What is your real question?11:33
trini7yI used my ubuntu to download, then it stopped connecting to the internet11:34
MonkeyDusttrini7y  wifi?11:35
mcphaileahmedshendy: those programs just replicate features which are built in to Ubuntu11:35
trini7yBoth wifi and Ethernet11:36
k1leahmedshendy: just use the command "ssh" on terminal to connect to ssh11:36
trini7yThis is the second time it has behaved like this11:36
MonkeyDusttrini7y  is it a laptop or desktop, which ubuntu version, which program etc11:37
trini7yLaptop, 14.0, transmission11:38
MonkeyDusttrini7y  14.04 or 14.10?   14.10 is dead11:38
bekkstrini7y: That may happen when too much connection are opened in parallel. It may lead to a lockup in your modem/router.11:38
trini7yBut i dont want to use 1511:40
bekkstrini7y: So are you using 14.04 or 14.10?11:40

shubiI'm well thanks :) I really like Ubuntu, but it seems the fan control is problematic...14:12
shubiI have Thinkpad W500 and the fan is constantly on pretty loud.14:12
shubiAt least 2700RPM constantly...14:12
k1lshubi: what ubuntu are you on exactly? do you have the latest bios?14:13
shubiI have 14.04.3, when I updated everything it became even louder, so I am using the version it came with (a week ago).14:13
shubiOn Windows there is this Lenovo program that handles the fan.. But it only works on Windows..14:14
k1lshubi: uname -a?14:14

shubiWhat is TLP?14:15

k1lshubi: you could try the 4.2 kernel, that is the wily backports kernel. see the "enablement stack" on how to install it14:15
k1l!hwe | shubi14:16
ubottushubi: The Ubuntu LTS enablement stacks provide newer kernel and X support for existing LTS releases, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack14:16
MonkeyDustshubi  my mistake, that's for the battery14:16
k1lshubi: and what video card is it? and what driver is used?14:17
shubiIs the Kernel you are talking about later than what is offered in the regular upgrade?14:17
shubik1l: I am using the integrated Intel card. I don't know which driver.14:17
k1lshubi: its the 15.10 backports kernel. that is the standard now if you install a 14.04.4. but from a 14.04.3 you need to install that like its told in the linked wiki page14:18
k1lshubi: ok. so the driver is in the kernel from intel. so i suggest try ing the 4.2 kernel14:18

miccheckCan anyone please help? I am trying to backup certain folders via rsync from an ubuntu vps to a backup folder on my mac. Neither the mac or the vps accounts are root, and I have root login access turned off on the vps. I ssh into it using an ssh config that I setup on my mac, and I'm trying to use ssh with rsync to perform the backuip, but I keep getting permission errors, not all files transferred, and so on.14:19
miccheckCan anyone please tell me the best way to do this, and whether or not I should continue to have root access disabled? I've read multiple things on both topics and I'm still not sure the right way to do this, etc.14:19
shubiI did the auto-update before and it was actually louder. (The wiki says from 14.04.2 it will update to the last kernel.. no?)14:21

k1lshubi: please install the lts-wily kernel stack like told on that wiki page. if that is not helping we can easily remove that kernel afterwards again.14:25
k1lshubi: you will not get that kernel when running the regular update only. because it will update you to the 14.04.4 (the 4th "servicepack") state, but ubuntu will not change the kernel on LTS automatically14:26

shubiAround 1900 instead of ~2800 RPM14:50
shubiThank you. I have one more question though.14:50
shubiIf I update through the standard update app, will it change my kernel? Do I need to disselect the kernel option?14:51

k1lshubi: when you install one of the 14.04.X you will have that kernel that it names and stay on that kernel no matter what updates you run. a 14.04.2 will always stay on 3.16. except you change the kernel-base manually like you did now to have the 4.2 kernel.14:54

vincent42with network-manager in ubuntu 14.04, I have a network interface, then I manually add some routes, then I  activate a VPN  (pptp), later , when the VPN goes down, all my custom routes of the network interfaces are removed as well , even though they're completely unrelated to the vpn15:50
vincent42it's as if when th eVPN goes down, the network  interface is also reinitialized, it didn't do that in ubunt 12.04 or other distrib like arch15:50

bp0zelozelos, no there is a bug, the times listed for calendar events are all off by 6 hours16:37
networkSettingsEriC^^: so the problem right now is, that i can't move my mouse, and the display is locked to 640 px.16:37
zelozelosbp0, correct timezone?16:38
Picishlant: you're probabably only redirecting stdout.  put > /dev/null 2>&1 on the end of you cron command to make it redirect stderr to the same location stdout is going (which is /dev/null)16:39
zelozelosi want the (meta package) for wine right?16:39

It used to be (in 12.04) that if you clicked on an icon in the side bar, it would bring the application to the foreground... if you clicked again, or if the window was already in the foreground, it would minimize it. Is there anyway to turn this behavior back on? I was hoping to see it in 16.04, but (based on the beta) it looks like it's not there either. (at least by default)18:43

ubottuLaunchpad bug 1370093 in forked-daapd (Ubuntu) "Error during database scan: ffmpeg: Header missing" [Undecided,Confirmed]19:47
severalwordtrapsHello everyone19:47
fragskethat's why I want to update it to a newer version19:48
lotuspsychjefragske: if it affects you too, can you add your experience to the existing bug?19:48
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: welcome, how can we help you?19:48
fragskeno real other experience then the same problem19:48
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: I've just installed Ubuntu for the very first time, and everything was doing fine 'till I tried to install proprietary drivers for my grafic card19:49
lotuspsychjefragske: adding the pastebin could be usefull, to get attention on the bug19:49
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: a Nvidia Geforce GT44019:49
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: ubuntu version?19:49
fragskeperhaps i can try to dist-upgrade , but I don't have any good exeperiences with that :)19:49
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: 15.1019:49
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: ok and what your driver version active?19:50
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: can you check the additional drivers section, whats in your list?19:51
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: I installed the last one available in additional drivers section, but it always gave me an error19:52
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: so I dowloaded from the page and installed it manually in a X terminal19:52
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: download what from where?19:52
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: last version of Nvidia drivier from Nvidia page19:53
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: hmm, can you go check additional drivers list please, tell me what you see19:53
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: sadly i can't 'cause now i'm not able to enter Ubuntu.19:54
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: try the recoverymode/terminal sudo apt-get purge nvidia19:54
lotuspsychje!recoverymode | severalwordtraps19:55
lotuspsychje!recovery | severalwordtraps19:55
ubottuseveralwordtraps: If your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode19:55
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: ok. Only, i think i have to tell you: i modified /etc/fstab writing in every device (/sdb3 and /sdb6) "nofail"19:56
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: 'cause i read that the boot problem could be realted to a missing drive, although i haven't disconnected anything19:56
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje:Also, after the first change (only sdb3), Ubuntu did start19:57
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: i assume the boot troubles arised when you tried nvidia driver19:57
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: But when i typed the user and passphrase, the screen tilted and asked me for user and pass again19:57
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: Should i just try the get-apt purge... ?19:58
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: yes if you can19:58
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: thanks mate, i'm gonna try it now19:58
BluesKajseveralwordtraps, the drivers from the nvidia website work for a while until kernel modules are updated and upgraded, then that driver is left behind in the dust, and sometimes they won';t work at all from the start19:58
phasorhow can i install ruby1.8? running trusty thar, trying to get a legacy rails app set up19:59
Bashing-omseveralwordtraps: lotuspsychje Maybe do this the Nvidia way ? ' sudo find / -name "NVIDIA-Linux-*" ' .19:59
severalwordtrapsBluesKay: so do i have to stick just with the default driver?20:00
phasorto avoid confusion, i'm trying to set up a rails 2.3 app with apache and passenger20:00
severalwordtrapsBashing-om: From that command on, do the screen guide me forward? I can try that after purge Nvidia20:00
lotuspsychjephasor: its recommended to stick to package versions for your ubuntu version20:00
BluesKajno severalwordtraps, there are nvidia drivers in the ubuntu repositories what are configged to work20:01
phasorlotuspsychje: if i used an older linux distro would i get access to ruby1.8?20:01
phasorerr, older version i mean20:01
lotuspsychjephasor: install a higher ubuntu version20:02
lotuspsychje!latest | phasor20:02
ubottuphasor: 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.20:02
severalwordtrapsBluesKaj: those that appeared to me in additional drivers, in proprietary drivers, could those be the ones?20:02
Bashing-omseveralwordtraps: If this is a OEM driver install .. and that ^ file exists .. there is a uninstall tool to remove the proprietary driver gracefully .20:02
BluesKajseveralwordtraps, yes, exactly20:02
phasorsure, i can update ubuntu, but how would that give me ruby1.8? apt-caches only shows 1.920:03
BluesKajseveralwordtraps, there's usually oner that's recommended for your gpu , choose that one\20:03
lotuspsychjephasor: wich ubuntu are you on? and whats the specific packagename?20:03
severalwordtrapsBluesKaj, great! I'm gonna try both ways now, purge and the "Nvidia way", if i can figure out one20:04
aq2_How can i get network working in chroot?20:04
lotuspsychje!info ruby precise | phasor this what you looking for?20:05
ubottuphasor this what you looking for?: ruby (source: ruby-defaults): Transitional package for ruby1.8. In component main, is optional. Version 4.8 (precise), package size 4 kB, installed size 36 kB20:05
ubottuA chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot20:05

aq2_My problem is that my /etc/resolv.conf is a symbolic link to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf20:06
phasorlotuspsychje: 14.04 LTS, ruby1.820:06
aq2_and copying that didnt help any20:06
lotuspsychjephasor: youl have to install precise for that ruby version, aka 12.0420:07
BluesKajseveralwordtraps, thee's no need , nvidia will remove the existing driver duriong the installation of the new driver20:07
phasorlotuspsychje: ok, i'll try that. thanks20:07
lotuspsychjephasor: mixing versions would scramble your system20:07
phasoryeah i don't need more hiccups than i'm already going to get from this app20:08
BluesKajBashing-om, never used the "nvidia way", we don't see that method on Kubuntu20:09
lotuspsychjephasor: just keep in mind, one day youl have to upgrade to higher ubuntu version anyway20:09
xanguaAnd that day will be a year from now20:10
severalwordtrapshaha, BluesKaj, Bashin-om, what do i do then? I really don't know almost nothing about Linux, and just today i'm starting to learning about the terminal20:10
lotuspsychjeaq2_: best to re-ask once in a while in one line and be patient :p20:11
phasorlotuspsychje: that depends on the client, hopefully they'll upgrade sooner rather than later20:11
Bashing-omBluesKaj: " ./Nvidiawhatever.run --uninstall " If the OEM install completed .20:11

m00tykins(The software I want to use doesn't have gnome/kde/x11 dependencies20:15
lotuspsychjeseveralwordtraps: you can check the drivernames from recoverymode/terminal with ubuntu-drivers20:16
severalwordtrapslotuspsychje: so i write down " ubuntu-drivers", find a matching driver for the G Card, and the write down its name?20:17
lotuspsychjem00tykins: you need a bse ubuntu, you can just run enlightment20:17

m00tykinslotuspsychje: lubuntu 14.04.120:19

lotuspsychjem00tykins: keep lubuntu as base, and install enlightment then use logout/login20:19
Bashing-omseveralwordtraps: CLI method to install drivers : ' sudo ubuntu-drivers devices ; sudo ubuntu-drivers list ' If you like what you see then ' sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall ' . On a clean purged driver situation .20:20

consolejazzhello. regarding some basic sysadmin -- what's difference/advantage/disadvantage of wanting to assign sudo permissions to non-root user by adding them to `wheel` group vs the `sudo` group?21:09
synthorwheel group? never heard21:10
bekksconsolejazz: What is the advantage of having a second user who possibly may break your system?21:10
ralpheeeebekks: what DE you running?21:12
bekksralpheeee: I dont have a particular preference, why?21:12
k1lconsolejazz: ubuntu got a sudo setup. with using the sudo group.21:12
consolejazzwhat's th sudo user's default name? `ubuntu`?21:13
consolejazzi leave root alone and then create at least one additional `sudo` non-root user21:13
consolejazzwith a non-default username :)21:14
EriC^^consolejazz: it's whatever user you added during the install21:14
k1lconsolejazz: its the user you created. any user can become "sudo user" by putting him into the sudo group21:14
k1lconsolejazz: you seem to be confused by root and sudo.21:14
synthoryeah, i don't get his problem..question21:14
ralpheeeei cant make my mind up what terminal emulator to use for my setup with i3 urxvt font issues drives me nuts, exce4-terminal, too many dependencies...terminator heacy on resources...lxterminal was never impressed with it....21:14
consolejazzbekks: i'm running nginx instance and will host a couple sites, creating a new user per site21:14
consolejazzfor isolation and security21:15
synthoryou also could create a group called wheel and let all their users be sudoers..?!21:15
consolejazzthat's why21:15
synthornginx user with sudo permissions?!21:15
synthorwtf. don't do that!21:15
bekksconsolejazz: And why do you want thme to have sudo access?21:15
consolejazzk1l: not confused. i was asking what the difference betwen `wheel` and `sudo` groups was21:15
consolejazzwhich no one's yet answered (i don't think)21:16
bekksconsolejazz: wheel is used on debian, sudo is used on Ubuntu.21:16
bekksconsolejazz: Ubuntu uses sudo with the sudo group.21:16
synthorthx bekks!21:16
synthornever seen a wheel group on debian21:16
consolejazzcentos as well right? (`wheel`, that is)21:16
bekksconsolejazz: centos uses wheel, too.21:16
ralpheeeewheel def on arch21:16
k1lconsolejazz: ubuntu doesnt use wheel group. that is what people try to tell you21:17
consolejazzbekks: granting the website-based user initial sudo permissions21:17
bekksconsolejazz: Do not do that. Dont. Ever.21:17
synthordon't do that21:17
consolejazzduring setup process, before anything's live, then revoking the rights21:17
bekksconsolejazz: A webserber user should never have sudo permissions.21:17
k1lconsolejazz: that seems to be a thing on other unix but not on debian or ubuntu.21:17
consolejazzsorry, why? i want them to own certain processes21:17
bekksconsolejazz: They dont need sudo to own processes.21:18
consolejazzi said i would revoke their sudo rights after setup21:18
LynoureI cannot find yet anything on CVE-2016-0787 for Ubuntu. Is it under works?21:18
synthoryou don't need sudo/root for that21:18
bekksconsolejazz: sudo is used for getting root access.21:18
k1lconsolejazz: you start the webserver with root permissions but the server as such is run as another user. the www-data user21:18
synthorjust add the user too www-data group21:18
roygbivhey everybody, ubuntu newb here. i need to install virtualbox but i’m only wanting to use it with vagrant. is there a minimal vbox install i can get? right now apt-get wants to install X, Qt, a bunch of libs and docs, etc., 281 MB of stuff.21:18

consolejazzyes, so i want to install some software as those (initial) sudo permitted users21:18
bekksroygbiv: Then you need to install all those requirements.21:18
synthorwhat u want to install?21:18
roygbivbekks, that’s what i was afraid of21:18
consolejazzso they'd automatically own the processes too. then once all's setup, revoke the rights21:18
consolejazzsynthor: i dunno yet :)21:19
bekksconsolejazz: if you dont know, you dont need it.21:19
consolejazzi'm just getting in to www servers21:19
synthorsry, but that sounds so nonsense21:19
bekksconsolejazz: a webserver user shall not have sudo permissions. Never.21:19
bekksconsolejazz: There is literally no sane reason for doing that.21:19
synthorjust create a user, add him to www-data group, and run an nginx instance for him21:19
synthornever give them root/sudo access21:20
consolejazznginx creates www-data group by default right? i'm confused by that naming convention because there's also a user `www-data` created? or is that for apache?21:20
k1lconsolejazz: www-data is user and group.21:20
synthorif you need to install/Create stuff. you simply write shellscripts or python/perl, what you like and run this script with root privileges. this will do all neccessary steps of your config and that was it21:21
k1levery user got an own group21:21
k1lbut that www-data user is nologin. which makes sense since you dont want someone to login on your system with that account21:21

Bitnovagenii, in my root folder i have a folder called root and it has a white cross on the folder, and i cant even cd into it21:57
k1lthat is the root users home. you dont need that21:58
geniiBitnova: That's good. It's the folder for user named root, which is priveleged and normal user should not be able to enter or view what is in their home directory21:59
Bitnovaoh ok i see.22:00
Bitnovabut is it safe to delete it perhaps?22:00
Ben64don't go around deleting stuff22:00
k1lBitnova: just let it sit there. that is fine.22:01
Bitnovaits just weird it feels like i havent seen it before. and i was busy with some script so i hope it didnt create anything there.22:01
Ben64if you were running stuff as your user, it can't create anything there22:02
Bitnovawell problem is i was running it as sudo Ben6422:03
Ben64well you shouldn't run things as sudo unless necessary22:04

BitnovaBen64, i needed to install nullmailer from this script https://bitbucket.org/nullmailer-install-daemonize/nullmailer-installer-daemonizer/downloads. i just hope there is nothing bad about it.22:05
Ben64Bitnova: nullmailer is in the ubuntu repositories, no need to install from a 3rd party site22:06
Revian2When I install an app it doesn't appear in the app list until I log out and back in. Is this  a known issue? Is there a way to resolve it?22:06
bekksyoofoo: Try freetds22:06
yoofooThx, bekks22:06
Bitnovayes but v1.1 is in the repo's, this script downloads straight from http://untroubled.org/nullmailer/  which the latest version is 2.0 Ben6422:07
Ben64!latest | Bitnova22:07
ubottuBitnova: 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.22:07

mtnaskingyou: the boot sequence or boot menu. many of the menus are different23:12

=== 14WAAAWCY is now known as tomaw
mtnaskingyou: if you want it to boot, yes. be aware there is a boot menu you can access during boot to choose something else, too23:21
askingyoumtn: How do I get the boot menu? Are you talking about Grub when you are saying boot menu?23:21
mtnaskingyou: nope. a uefi boot menu. read your manual or look at the screen as it boots. though, yours may be different, they are not all the same. but, reading the manual would be a good place to start23:22
askingyoumtn: So you don't get Grub with UEFI?23:22
