jesper_Bashing-om: It lists my installation as 15.04 but I downloaded and md5summed 15.10, this is weird00:00
k1l_jesper_: what says "lsb_release -d"?00:01
jesper_k1l_: Command not found00:02
jesper_k1l_: wait, spelled it wrong00:02
jesper_It says Ubuntu 15.04 which is weird since all I have is 15.10 on my USB-drive00:02
Bashing-omjesper_: k1l_ and Jordan_U Are all old hands at this, great they look over our shoulders .00:03
jesper_Bashing-om: Could I be making a mistake with the installation entirely?00:03
jesper_Bashing-om: and that's why I'm getting these weird errors and crashes?00:04
Bashing-omjesper_: That begs the question ,, are you booting the USB or booting the install on the hard drive ?00:04
jesper_Bashing-om: I'm booting from the SSD after I boot from the installation media00:04
jesper_I'll try re-installing, I hope you've got time to spare Bashing-om haha - sorry for all the problems00:05
Bashing-omjesper_: Real tough to do that .. What you have set in the UEFI settings is what will boot . Rither the USB OR the SSD. not both .00:05
Bashing-omjesper_: We have the time .. help is what we do .00:06
jesper_Bashing-om: I mean at first when I boot I use something on my motherboard called "Boot override" and that is what I use to boot the installation media (my USB) and after that I use my SSD - which I now see might be the wrong ssd...00:07
k1l_jesper_: can you pastebin a "sudo parted -l" and a "mount"00:08
Bashing-omjesper_: What we are going to do is boot that SSD. the USB drive should be removed and not a part of this equation .00:08
jesper_Bashing-om: That's what I'm trying now, k1l_ I'll do that when I've re-installed it and not booted from anything but my main SSD00:09
salamanderrakehow do I get ubuntu/unity to stop using the super key00:09
xanguasalamanderrake: easier to use another desktop00:10
jesper_Bashing-om: I don't think it's booting from the USB after I've installed. I think it's booting one of my VMs if that's even possible because I know I have 15.04 installed as a VM, going to try and wipe all my other drives and then install00:10
dlamis there a thing to show additionally show UTC date in the top right of the desktop?00:11
jesper_Bashing-om: When asked now how I wanted to install it - it asked if I wanted to install 15.04 along 15.04.. I don't understand why.. I double-checked and I have 15.10 on my USB00:12
Bashing-omjesper_: K .. Might I suggest that you read the manual and learn how your EFI interface works ? Mind you every manufacturer implements the interface different .00:12
Bashing-omjesper_: Is there a reason you want Mate as the desktop ? Let me see if I can find a download link for 15.10 Mate then .00:14
jesper_Bashing-om: The only reason is that I think it looks good from the get go00:15
Bashing-omjesper_: 'buntu ! all about choice . Ok .. os this the link you are using to download : https://ubuntu-mate.org/wily/ ?00:17
jesper_Bashing-om: Yes, that is where I downloaded it00:17
jesper_Bashing-om: Could you tell me the correct partitioning for my SSD? I have a 240GB SSD and I do not want to use any SWAP partition, sorry if this is a bothersome question00:18
ouroumov__jesper_, you have to have a swap00:18
=== gms is now known as Guest23938
jesper_ouroumov__: why is that?00:19
k1l_jesper_: do you want to use hibternation?00:19
ouroumov__Linux requirement I think, I've never tried but I doubt you can even install without a SWAP partition00:19
jesper_k1l_: not relaly00:19
k1l_jesper_: how much ram you got?00:19
jesper_k1l_: 16GB00:19
frostschutzif you have enough ram and don't hibernate, you don't need swap00:19
k1l_ouroumov__: you can00:19
jesper_ouroumov__: I'm certain I've installed VM's without swap before00:20
ouroumov__I need to go re-learn some things00:20
k1l_jesper_: ok. than you can go without a swap. but you cant use hibernation then. (except you would make a swapfile....)00:20
Bashing-omjesper_: Again back to " < k1l_> jesper_: can you pastebin a "sudo parted -l" and a "mount" -- we see what it is that we are working with .00:20
jesper_Bashing-om: Can I do that whilst installing Ubuntu?00:20
MaimsterHow's everyone doing tonight?00:21
daniel331__hey, you know what?00:21
daniel331__you guys rule00:21
daniel331__goodnight everyone00:22
Maimsterdaniel331__ Goodnight00:22
Bashing-omjesper_: No, but from the liveUSB you can provide what we are looking for . Else only a matter of minutes to await this new fresh install IF you are certain that it is 15.10 and that the md5sum matches .00:22
jesper_Bashing-om: Then I will try my best to do that00:23
JadesDJa long time ago they talked about the "cube" in ubuntu...is it still possible?00:26
k1l_JadesDJ: see the ccsm: compiz config settings manager00:26
JadesDJah, ok00:27
jesper_Bashing-om: Can I install pastebin on a liveUSB?00:27
jesper_Bashing-om: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1519235400:29
Bashing-omjesper_: Yeah .. can install pastebin, but will not persist a reboot . at this time i am looking to find the Mate15.10 md5sum got kinda hung up on downloads . Bear with me .00:29
jesper_Bashing-om: Weirdly enough the power button is actually there now, not just a missing image.. The menu is still gone though00:31
Bashing-omjesper_: Quite the system . 4 hard drives .. with 'buntu to be installed to the 1st drive -sda- / the other 3 are Windows .00:31
jesper_Bashing-om: Yeah, 2 ssds, 1 hard drive and 1 external drive. It says install ubuntu mate 15.04 on the installation icon...00:33
Bashing-omjesper_: Then that is a 15.04 install ... let my download complete and I check the md5sum and we continue .00:34
JadesDJby the way...can i slap the new desktop on the older Warty-distro?00:34
LEPTOSPIRAHi folks, I need some help with bash scripting. I am new to this.00:35
k1l_JadesDJ: warty? really?00:35
Bashing-omJadesDJ: I Highly doubt it ! That old release would not have the GTK support of the modern desk tops .00:35
LEPTOSPIRAI want a script that will play in cvlc a random album from my music directory. This is what I have so far: find "${MUSICDIR}" -follow -maxdepth 1 -mindepth 1 -type d | shuf | head -n1 | (read RANDALBUM; find "$RANDALBUM" -maxdepth 2 -mindepth 2 -exec vlc {} + | sort)00:35
JadesDJk1l_: yes...i mean, why not?00:35
LEPTOSPIRAThe problem is that the songs are not sorted in their track order. I don't know how to combine -exec with sort00:36
LEPTOSPIRAAny ideas?00:36
JadesDJbesides, i like to experiment with stuff00:36
k1l_JadesDJ: because everything. missing all libs needed.00:36
c0feCan Juju be used to deploy containers?00:36

LEPTOSPIRAI had to change the "I" to 'I' and now it works00:42
Bashing-omjesper_: OK, I have a 15.10 Mate md5sum .. show us what your result is and we compare .00:44

Pantsuenjoy it blowing up if you have a music file with a space in the name00:45
Pantsuor \n00:46
shubiI upgraded today, never had an issue before.00:46
k1l_jesper_: could it be you bootet a 15.04 ubuntu on the 2tb disk?00:46
jesper_k1l_: That's what I was thinking, and that's why I wanted help with the partitioning00:46
k1l_jesper_: that is why i would like to see a "mount" from that 15.04 system running00:46
k1l_jesper_: partitioning is easy: 15GB for / rest for /home. both ext400:47
jesper_Then I will do that, have to re-install the boot device though00:47
shubiAny ideas?00:48
jesper_k1l_: It's very daunting to someone who isn't used to doing any partitioning haha, I've only done it with Arch before and that was a complete walkthrough00:48
Bashing-omjesper_: Confirmed, same sum as I have .. so we are working with 15.10 !00:49
jesper_Bashing-om: Glad to hear it haha, I'm installing it again on the USB drive00:49
=== mike_ is now known as Guest4678
Bashing-omjesper_: K, when it is installed to the USB drive . we verify the copy . boot in UEFI setting to the USB as soon as the bios screen clears repeatedly depress and release the escape key -> language screen, escape key again to accept the default -> boot options scren -> "check disk for defects" .00:53

Bashing-omjesper_: Good, we know the copy is bad ! /// recopy the image and try again .00:55
jesper_Bashing-om: re-installing to the USB00:57
Bashing-omjesper_: What tool are you using to make the copy to USB ?00:58
jesper_Bashing-om: Yumi00:58
jesper_Bashing-om: Checking disc for defects again01:00
jesper_Bashing-om: Again, error found in 2 files01:00
k1l_jesper_: what did you use to create that usb?01:01
jesper_k1l_: Yumi01:01
k1l_this is on windows?01:02
jesper_k1l_: Linux Mint01:02
Bashing-omjesper_: I defer to k1l_ But 'dd' works to make that copy .01:02
k1l_jesper_: use "dd" then01:02
jesper_k1l_: Never used that before01:02
k1l_jesper_: other programs tend to change files to make their own menu or logo into it.01:02
jesper_I have no clue how to use 'dd'01:03
k1l_jesper_: sudo dd if=/path/to/ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=1M && sync01:03
jesper_k1l_: Just copy-paste that into the terminal?01:04
Bashing-omjesper_: ' sudo dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdd bs=4M && sync ' where with 'parted -l ' you confirm that the USB drive is seen as "sdd" !!01:04
k1l_make sure /dev/sdX is X for the correct drive and not sdX1 for the first partition01:04
k1l_jesper_: need to adjust if and of to your needs01:04
jesper_I'll go looking for all the paths01:04
teerlI feel conv=sync would be better than && sync01:05
teerlthat's just my preference though01:05
Bashing-omteerl: And that sounds like you have the greater experience .01:06
jesper_k1l_: If the ISO is in "Downloads/ISO.iso" then do I write it straight up as sudo dd if=/Downloads/ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=1M && sync01:06
jesper_And how to I know which sd I'm using?01:07
k1l_jesper_: "sudo parted -l" will list the devices. seee there what your usb is01:07
romarehey I wanna install skype on my ubuntu 14.04 LTS. is that possible?01:08
jesper_sudo dd if=/Downloads/ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M && sync should work then? (I renamed the ISO to ubuntu.iso)01:08

jesper_However, it does not have a valid fake msdos partition table, as it should.01:17
jesper_Perhaps it was corrupted -- possibly by a program that doesn't understand GPT01:17
jesper_partition tables.  Or perhaps you deleted the GPT table, and are now using an01:17
jesper_msdos partition table.  Is this a GPT partition table?01:17

k1l_good. keep this in mind for "easy" live usb making :)01:24
k1l_jesper_: no. just install onto that ssd.01:24
jesper_k1l_: using my own preferences or using the standard installation?01:24
k1l_manual partitioning.01:24
k1l_then make a ~15GB partition and the rest into another one. the small one will be ext4 and mounted as /. the large one will be ext4 and mounted as /home. then accept changes and go on with install01:26
jesper_k1l_: Should I remove all the other partitions from the other drives as well? To minimize the chances of what happened earlier?01:27
k1l_jesper_: no01:28
jesper_k1l_: so, 1 partition which is 15GB, primary, beginning of space, ext4, mouted at "/"01:29
jesper_k1l_: It says 15.10 now btw, not 15.04! :D01:29
k1l_jesper_: yes.01:30
jesper_k1l_: and the second partition will be: the rest of the space, primary, beginning of space, ext4, mounted at "/home"?01:31

WACOMaltHey folks. Wondering if someone can help me.02:16
WACOMaltI'm on Linux Mint, running Mate. I installed the NVidia 361 drivers, which went fine. However I had issues with vsync not working even when enabled in nvidia settings.  (Which I recall also happened on 352, the current recommended drivers)02:16
WACOMaltSo I found that I needed to add a line to my xorg.conf at the end of the Devices section. (Option "TripleBuffer" "True") I didnt have an xorg.conf file in /etc/X11 so I saved it from nvidia-settings (as sudo) and added the line and copied it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Vsync isnt working after a reboot. Dragging windows causes tearing, and games tear too.  What's odd is the "tear line" is always in the same location, unlike usual teraing where it wil02:16
WACOMaltl move around. So I think its "working" but maybe is hitting an issue with my not consistent monitor sizes? One is 1920x1200 the other is 1920x1080.  here is the current conf as saved by nvidia, and edited: http://pastebin.com/gPM7bY6g02:16
jesper_Bashing-om: are you there?02:16
xgptjesper_: any guides? the installer seems very set on not giving me options. it's stupid-proof. I've downloaded the desktop iso that boots into a full desktop. I would only like to install the server though..not the full desktop :)02:17
Bashing-omjesper_: Yeah ... attending to dogs . as to 'dd' nope same same procedure .02:18
jesper_xgpt: why not try: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/server/install-ubuntu-server02:18
jesper_Bashing-om: thanks! what kind of dogs? race that is02:18
xgptjesper_: I can't burn any CDs02:18
xgptI only have a single usb drive too02:18
jesper_xgpt: try using that usb drive then02:19
xgptbut the problem is I'd like to INSTALL *to* that USB drive :P02:19
jesper_Oh, that shouldn't be a problem should it?02:19
xgptI can boot into the graphical livecd and use the "toram" option to load it into ram...and then install to USB from RAM02:19
jesper_Can't you use the media you're currently on to install the server onto?02:19
xgptbut I'm not confident the server installer loads itself fully into ram02:19
jesper_xgpt: It doesn't seem like I'm the right person to answer these questions haha, I'm a beginner myself so you know02:20
xgptif I could load the server installer into RAM that would fix my problem...but I'm not sure how to02:20
Bashing-omjesper_: Oh many ... Basset hound, Daush hounds and shih-tzus .02:20
Kirejiwhy does "mail" require mysql ?02:21
jesper_Bashing-om: that's nice, I have an English springer spaniel here02:21
Kirejiapt-get install mailutils wants to install:  "guile-2.0-libs libkyotocabinet16 libmailutils4 libmysqlclient18 mysql-common"02:21
Bashing-omjesper_: good comapnions also . Off topic we best stay on it .02:22
jesper_Bashing-om: When I hit the "Turn off" button - everything stops lagging weirdly enough02:22
Bashing-omjesper_: On a USB device, going to be laggy .02:23
squintyxgpt,  if you already have a linux/grub2 installed then the following may be of use  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/ISOBoot02:23
jesper_Bashing-om: I was talking about the mate installation on my SSD02:23
Bashing-omjesper_: That should absolutely scream with your hardware !02:24
jesper_Bashing-om: I think there might've been a problem - I'm seeing "Install Ubuntu MATE" instead of the Xubuntu02:24
Bashing-omjesper_: Uh Huh ... we have a problem .. verify .iso and insure that you 'dd' the correct .iso file .02:25
jesper_This was the output I got from dd: http://imgur.com/7c5HQzN02:25
jesper_Bashing-om: It acts like there are 2 different USBs now02:26
jesper_Bashing-om: One is called "Ubuntu-MATE .." and the other is just called "efi"02:27
Bashing-omjesper_: Well, verify that the desired .iso is present ' ls -al Dounloads/xubuntu.iso ' .02:27
jesper_Bashing-om: -rw-r--r-- 1 jesper jesper 1104052224 Feb 25 03:11 Downloads/xubuntu.iso02:28
Bashing-omjesper_: correct to be 'ls -al Downloads ' and see what .iso files are there .02:28
xgptsquinty: that's the thing...there's no HDD on this laptop I'm trying to install to. I'm trying to install a full system to a 16gb USB drive.02:29
romareI installed mIRC by using wine and now I want to crack it but I don't know how to reach the source folder of mIRC, where would that be?02:29
Bashing-omjesper_: Looks right to me . that command ( paste ) showld be correct .02:29
xgptsquinty: but that HDD fried and I'm trying to just revive it with a single USB drive........it's just for SSH and a light HTTP server for just me...02:29
xanguaromare: that doesn't sound like an Ubuntu support question, sorry02:29
romarexangua: can someone see the location of the application he installed?02:30
jesper_Bashing-om: Ignore what I said previously, it is showing it as 2 different USBs and the other one isn't called "efi" it's called "Xubuntu 15.10 amd64"02:30
squintyxgpt, afaik, then you need a second usb or dvd02:30
xgptsquinty: but I can load the full desktop installer to ram02:32
xgptso I can install the desktop version to the USB02:32
romarelol, at least this question must be something to answer: isn't there a way to know the location of the app you installed via Wine?02:32
Bashing-omjesper_: ?? and "Xubuntu 15.10 amd64" USB verifies ' check disk for defects ' ?02:33
jesper_Bashing-om: I have the USB plugged in to this computer now and it shows up as 2 different usbs, I did the check disc for defects earlier but I noticed that was with Mate and now Xubuntu, I'm thinking that I just remove all the Ubuntu mate files and try again02:34
jesper_Bashing-om: I didn't get the option to install Xubuntu when I plugged it into the computer02:35

jesper_Bashing-om: Never mind, I can't remove any of the files02:36
Bashing-omjesper_: I would have expected 'dd' to completely overwrite the USB ... beats me what took pplace ... while on my mind ... I thought that the DDS drive was seen as 'sda' are you sure you want to 'dd' the .iso to 'sdb ' as in that screen shot ? 'parted -l ' to remove any doubt .02:36

SchrodingersScat!wubi | xgpt in fact, please don't use wubi.03:24
ubottuxgpt in fact, please don't use wubi.: Wubi was a way to install Ubuntu from within Windows, but it is no longer supported in recent versions of Ubuntu and was never well maintained even for Ubuntu 12.04. Do not use Wubi. See !install for other options for installing Ubuntu.03:24

xgptbut is it possible to boto the server install image into a RAMDISK?03:27
reisioxgpt: if the latter, you can get there easily from the desktop image03:27
xgptlike using the "toram" option?03:28
reisioxgpt: yup03:28
xgptreisio: just a tinker thing I guess, something to run SSH and a simple LAMP stack for a single wiki for personal use03:28

gjall i want to do is install ubuntu fresh on my hdd, and lose windows and all data...03:47

gjcan sm1 guide me the best process.03:47
gji downloaded the iso its 1020 MB.. server install disk is i think 40MB03:47
xblue555wafflejock: so should I set the 250Gb's format to a windows format?03:48
gjlogin timed out after 60 seconds03:48
gj@wafflejock i downloaded ubuntu iso desktop03:50
wafflejockxblue555: sorry didn't catch the part about integrating any of that with windows? can just use ext4 if it's just going to be another filesystem for linux, if you want to share the filesystem I think FAT32 might really be the most cross platform compatible option03:50
Gallomimia40meg install disk is probably a network install. you need to download all the packages off the net as it installs03:51
wafflejockyeah the server one is 596 desktop one is 1020 though actually a bit smaller than I thought03:51
gji have 1020 MB03:51
wafflejockseems it's the right one though03:51
gji feel the disc is fine problem is with hardware03:51
xblue555so ext4 what should the mount point be?03:52
phionaroygbiv: gparted says  i have about 1.5 gb left of unused space on root  and i still have plenty on home partitions.03:52
Gallomimiaxblue555: why do you want a windows format for something?03:52
phionaroygbiv: they are all ext4.03:52
wafflejockgj yeah I mean you can md5 checksum the download and the disc to be sure on that part but typically I've been able to get through installations with at most using the nomodeset boot flag if there are problems with the drivers03:53
wafflejockreally when I've encountered that kind of thing it usually gets through the install then is using the wrong drivers on first boot and I have to correct03:53
Gallomimiamy personal preference is to put the extra big drive as mounted at /data and just put the big files on it. like steam games and videos and music and such.03:53
Gallomimiaclaudia: hablas inglis?03:53

wafflejockxblue555: regarding the mount point can really be wherever you want, I would probably really just set that up after installation using gparted to do the partitioning then just configure your fstab file to mount the drive to the location you want03:54

wafflejockMadhumper69: what's the VPN server software you're running? does it have a log? if so try to tail -f /var/log/vpn/access.log or whatever the file is for access or error logs, tail -f will show the end of the log and any new logs will show up in the console as they happen04:02
=== sins-_w is now known as sins-
wafflejockwould do the netstat first too to be sure the VPN server software is running the process bound to that port on the system too04:03
Madhumper69its frootvpn no software it wroks when i disable the firewall however i have port 1723 open and it wont work when enabled04:03
wafflejockand can nmap from the client to the server to see what ports are open04:03
wafflejockhrm must be using other ports for some other part of the traffic or something but no VPN expert for sure :)04:04
wafflejockMadhumper69: yah denada sorry I don't have a good answer for ya but at least some things to poke at it with... let me know if you figure it out04:05
Madhumper69its strange how it works with the firewall disabled and yet when i have port 1723 open it wont conn when firewall is active04:05
Madhumper69i will for sure04:05
Madhumper69do you know the command for restarting the vpn service in ubuntu?04:06
phionahow do i get info on how much space is reserved on my partitions  with tune2fs?04:07
wafflejockMadhumper69: depends on the particular service/process the typical command looks something like, sudo service frootvpn restart, but think that assumes it has upstart scripts that say what "restart" actually means for that process04:08
Madhumper69its iputed directly no software04:08

wkmanireSo with 16.04 beta 1 on the way in a few days, I noticed that the next milestone will include a UI freeze.04:34
krobzaurHello all! Whats the best way to transfer an ubuntu installation from one disk to another? I would be transferring from a large 3TB spinning hard disk to a 512GB NVMe SSD. I was thinking about running the ubuntu installer on the SSD, installing all my packages, then copying over the entire root filesystem from my old disk04:35
wkmanireDoes anyone know of any large UI changes that are supposed to land between the beta and the freeze?04:35
=== julien is now known as Guest88515
reisiowkmanire: I can tell you that it's unlikely GNOME 3 or compiz are going anywhere04:35
phionareisio: i would prefer gparted bcoz i still do not have funds to get another storage device.04:35
wkmanirekrobzaur: What does your FS look like?04:36
reisiokrobzaur: well, copying over /home/ alone at the end might be more sensible04:36
=== Guest88515 is now known as nonnatus
reisiokrobzaur: you _can_ actually just rsync the entire installation over, and reconfigure your kernel, reinstall grub, etc.04:36
wkmanirereisio: I'm a huge fan of Gnome 3, but I'm also excited to see what the new Unity release is like.04:36
reisiokrobzaur: there are some provisos, but it's quite doable04:36
Bashing-omphiona: 'df -h ; df -i04:36
Bashing-om to see the disk usage, where to ficus attention on removing ctuft .04:37
krobzaurwkmanire: FS? As is filesystem?04:37
krobzaurcd /home/04:37
wkmanirekrobzaur: Yep. What kind of filesystem layout do you use?04:37
krobzauroops lol04:37
wkmanirekrobzaur: Do you have everything on one big partition? Do you have separate partitions for /boot, /home etc?04:38
roygbivphiona, you might be able to go into /usr/src and delete old kernel headers to free up a little space. but i’m not sure if that’s dangerous or not04:38
wkmanireBefore you just start copying your FS around you have to think about things like this.04:38
krobzaurwkmanire: Super basic. Just ext4 for my root partition, 1 swap partition, and then a small efi system partition for grub04:38
wkmanireAre you going to be putting a new drive in the same machine? Or will this be another machine?04:38
krobzaurSame machine04:39
wkmanireSo the EFI system should work the same. The next thing to to think about is that your new drive is 1/6th the size of your current drive right?04:39
krobzaurYeah, but I'm barely using any space on my current drive04:39
wkmanireYou can't just dd the disk across because there's no telling how the data has been distributed across the disk.04:40
wkmanireProbably the safest thing for you to do, is to get a list of all of the user space apps you have installed and save that somewhere04:40
wkmanireThen put the new disk in, do a fresh install to it, and rsync your /home across04:41
wkmanireThen reinstall all of your apps from your list.04:41
krobzaurwkmanire: Yeah thats what I was thinking as well, simple and low risk04:41
wkmanireIf the destination disk was the same size or larger you could just dd it, but alas it is not so.04:42
reisiodd's just the wrong tool04:42
wkmanirereisio: Why do you think so?04:42
krobzaurYeah, unfortunately so. And clonezilla can't handle going from a larger disk to a smaller disk04:42
roygbivi’d probably use dd myself04:43
krobzaurI would have as well if I didn't have the size restriction. Just kick it off overnight and be done.04:43
roygbivso you’ll use rsync?04:44
phionaBashing-om:  hi http://pastebin.com/amv1BsTL04:44
phionaroygbiv: http://pastebin.com/amv1BsTL04:44
wkmanirekrobzaur: Another good option would be to use a backup utility like deja gnu and copy /home to a third disk (like a thumb drive)04:44
krobzaurYeah probably. One question though. Should I install all my packages first, then copy over /home/ with all my configs and whatnot? I feel like the order should be important04:45
wkmanireThen recover from the third party disk to your new disk. You'd get the benefit of a compressed backup on an external disk.04:45
wkmanireDeja-gnu I think?04:45
roygbivphiona, yep you’re cutting it pretty close on both space and free inodes04:46
krobzaurdeja-dup ?04:46
roygbivthat’s an amazing amount of inode usage on /.04:46
Bashing-omphiona: "/dev/sda6        19G   17G 1001M  95% / " does terminal command ' sudo apt-get autoremove ' help a bunch ?04:46
wkmanirekrobzaur: Yes, deja-dup, deja gnu is a unit testing thing. lol04:47
wkmanireAnd as far as the order of copying vs installing. I cannot say if it makes a difference.04:47
wkmanirePackages might choose to look for existing configs during installation, but that would vary from package to package.04:47
roygbivgitlab is an unholy monster04:48
phionaso what do i do now??  i still do not have funds for additional storage.04:48
roygbivphiona, i’m curious what the heck is using all your inodes. do you have a gazillion files in /tmp maybe?04:49
Bashing-omphiona: ^^ remove all cruft .04:49
krobzaurwkmanire: Gotcha. Is there any way for apt-get to install all the packages output by dpkg-query --list ?04:49
wkmanirekrobzaur: http://askubuntu.com/questions/17823/how-to-list-all-installed-packages04:50
reisioused to be a !clone factoid :/04:51
wkmanireBut you shouldn't try to re-install *everything*. Just the userspace programs you're using for the most part. Unless you've installed any servers or anything.04:51
krobzaurNot much else, just a webserver which is pretty simple04:51
wkmanireMy advise here would be to not worry about it. Just get the most complex ones listed down.04:52
wkmanireLike your webserver. It's so quick and easy to reinstall a package when you need it, you may as well just wait until the need arrises for the specific program.04:52
wkmanireUnless you plan to go work offline for an extended period of time in the near future.04:52
krobzaurfound a neat trick here though: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReinstallingSamePackages04:55
phionaroygbiv: NO I DONT HAVE A LOT OF FILES IN /TMP. maybe its bcoz when i delete something i  just open trash and then select all and then hit  delete key,. is that good?04:57
reisiophiona: quite often normal04:58
roygbivphiona, that wouldn’t cause the inode issue04:58
roygbivand yes that’s a fine way to go about deleting things04:58
reisiophiona: https://wiki.debian.org/ReduceDebian04:58
reisioif you're out of inodes, your FS was probably made incorrectly04:58
reisioless likely: you have a disproportionate amount of tiny files04:58
roygbivphiona, run this command and tell me what number it prints: sudo find /tmp | wc -l04:59
wkmanirekrobzaur: nice05:00
phionaBashing-om: http://pastebin.com/VnqsDyGF05:01
krobzaurwkmanire: It kind of bothers me that doing it this way doesn't keep track of dependencies though. So in the future old, unused libraries that were dependencies of packages installed by that method won't be cleaned out by autoremove05:01

wkmanirecrestcore: Why hello there.05:12
crestcoreWhich linux version is most stable and of small size for a gateway on X8605:13
wkmanireMadhumper69: Depends on your configuration. Are you running the firewall?05:13
wkmanireHave you checked your configurations with ufw?05:13
roygbivcrestcore, gateway == router?05:13
Ben64crestcore: you keep coming here and asking variations of that question. this is the ubuntu support channel, for ubuntu support only. if you want distro recommendations, please ask in ##linux05:13
Madhumper69yes came standard with ubuntu?05:14
wkmanireMadhumper69: Yep. I haven't used frootvpn before. Figure out what the needed ports are and then use ufw to enable them.05:14
Madhumper69yes the port is open and listed for ip4 and ip605:14
crestcoreGateway- Home automation gateway05:14
Madhumper69well pptp should be 1723 ?05:14
wkmanireMadhumper69: open for incoming and outgoing?05:15
wkmanireCould be that your VPN is using a range of ports too. What does the documentation say?05:15

Madhumper69i tried open05:16
Madhumper69and then closed not both?05:17
mahdihi all05:17
wkmanirecrestcore: Some folks really dig OpenBSD for network appliances, but any Linux distro with a current kernel will probably be good too.05:17
wkmanirecrestcore: You very likely don't want to install xorg, window manager or desktop environment.05:17
mahdithere is any way for backup installed ubuntu and restore it on the other system ?05:17
crestcoreYes, only headless05:18
Madhumper69i looked on the website but theres nothing but how to configure it https://www.frootvpn.com/guides/mikrotik/2505:18
wkmanirecrestcore: headless isn't really a good way to describe a linux installation without GUI. It's still just linux.05:18
wkmanireMadhumper69: firewalls can be configured to block/allow incoming traffic, outgoing traffic or both.05:19
crestcoreYes, we want something that takes very little space on disk, something like 200-300 mB05:19
Madhumper69i only have the option to allow in or out not both at same time? create 2 rrules?05:20
wkmanirecrestcore: I can make some suggestions, but before I do that, I saw it mentioned that you have come here before on more than one occassion asking this question.05:20
Ben64crestcore: either use the ubuntu minimal install, ubuntu server install, or ask ##linux for a different distro05:20
wkmanireHave you tried any advice that you have received thus far?05:20
wkmanireMadhumper69: Have you had a chance to look over of the ufw documentation?05:21
crestcoreOnly now I am getting some responses05:21
crestcoreCan you pl advise05:21
wkmanireit sounds like you're missing some key concepts for managing a firewall.05:21
Madhumper69well i might be but i have a basic understanding05:21
Ben64crestcore: incorrect, you were receiving responses the whole time05:21
Madhumper69i have enabled all my other ports to work for different things but i cant get vpn to go05:22
crestcoreokay, what was your suggestion pl05:22
wkmanirecrestcore: If you want complete control over your distribution, i.e. smallest possible installation size you can try Linux From Scratch or LFS. But this is only recommended for very advanced users who have a lot of free time to experiment. The next step up from that as far as ease of install while retaining the ability to customize would likely be Gentoo. You're still building from source in Gentoo. Next up is Arch, fully customizable05:23
wkmanirelike Gentoo but you don't have to wait for stuff to build.05:23
wkmanirecrestcore: My advice is to start with the simplest thing that *could* work and then drop down to the more customizable options as it proves necessary. And lastly, realize that it will take a lot of research and trial and error to find the ideal solution for you. Nobody can tell you the perfect answer outright.05:24
Ben64crestcore: http://pastebin.com/hFKxwaq205:24
crestcore_hi am trying to install minimalcd and got an error bad archive mirror05:24
wkmanireMadhumper69: If it works when the firewall is disabled, but not when it is enabled then you very likely have a bad configuration in your firewall.05:26
crestcoreBen64- okay, just checked that was colleague.05:26
Madhumper69yes but i tried everything and its a no go, i just tried now to allow in and out for 1723 and nothing05:26
wkmanireSo the first step is to find the documentation for your VPN and nail down exactly what the ports are. Second step is figure out if you need outbound and inbound or just outbound or just inbound.05:26
crestcoreHe is online now trying to install05:26
wkmanireThird step is to learn how to configure those port(s) with ufw as required by the VPN softwar.e05:27
Madhumper69the site doesnt give much info https://www.frootvpn.com/guides/linuxdebian/19         trying to get pptp going05:27
crestcorehi am trying to install minimalcd and got an error bad archive mirror05:29
wkmanireMadhumper69: According to the site, https://www.frootvpn.com/features/openvpn-pptp-l2tp, they support other protocols.05:30
wkmanireHave you tried following directions for enabling openvpn? I saw quite a few hits when I did a web search for that.05:30
Madhumper69no i have not05:31
Ben64crestcore: pick a different mirror05:31
Madhumper69If interested in PPTP, make sure PPTP port (TCP 1723) or GRE Port (47) is not blocked on in between firewalls.05:31
Madhumper69ill try to enable 47 gre port whatever that is05:32
crestcore_tried singapore us uk uae china nothing is working05:32
wkmanireDoes GRE stand for "greather than or equal"?05:32
Madhumper69what does that mean? lol05:33
crestcore_Ben64 : tried singapore us uk uae china nothing is working05:33
Ben64what version did you download05:34
wkmanireMadhumper69: I'm not familiar with PPTP, but I can tell you that it is common for secure services to first connect on a standard port (like 1723) and then securely negotiate to communicate on another port within a given range. Since this is a commercial product you should probably send them an e-mail and ask for a clarification of how to configure your firewall to enable PPTP with their client.05:34
wkmanireYou might need a fancier configuration than just opening 1723 and 47.05:34
Madhumper69well you would think they would be hits online when you search for firewall frootvpn05:34
wkmanireMadhumper69: The VPNs I've used have always been third party corporate things like Cisco or Juniper Networking stuff.05:35
Madhumper69says the vpn service failed when i enable firewall for vpn and when i disable firewall it connects??05:35
Madhumper69vpn message that say connected says vpn service failed when i enable firewall and try to connect to vpn05:36
Madhumper69when i disable it just connects ... its like the firewall is messing with the vpn service in ubuntu05:36
Madhumper69could this be a bug?05:36
wkmanireWhy would you think that?05:37
Madhumper69because the vpn service has failed it wont try to connect when i eneable the firewall its like the service screws up until i disable the firewall05:38
wkmanireBut why would you think there is a bug in either VPN or the firewall?05:38
Madhumper69well when firewall is enabled and i click to connect to vpn it says the service failed... the service that handles the vpn connection in ubuntu05:38
wkmanireYes, but I don't see how you can correlate that to there being a bug in the software. This is almost certainly a configuration issue.05:39
Madhumper69why would the vpn service tell me it failed when the firewall is active and trying to connect its not an error from dialing to the vpn05:39
Madhumper69how do you take a screenshot in ubuntu?05:40

reisioshubi: does there need to be?06:12
reisioroygbiv: you develop a lot of data planes?06:12
shubii don't know, i don't seem to have luck getting a response here...06:12
roygbivreisio, i’ve only recently gotten involved in it, and for freebsd, not linux06:13
reisioshubi: hrmmm, it's hard to hold a conversation with you when you say that :p06:13
reisioroygbiv: what is it?06:13
reisioit's all hellenic to me06:13
Gallomimiashubi: i scrolled up and noticed you didn't give many details on your problem. that's probably why you didn't get a response06:13
roygbivthe data plane is the part of a router that decided what to do with packets06:14
linuxlovehello to all06:14
linuxlovei have ububtu 15.1006:14
Gallomimiathat's great :)06:14
linuxloveif i want use my system as a server should i get a static ip?06:15
linuxlovehow can i get that?06:15
shubiokay. I have a Thinkpad W500, Ubuntu 14.04.03 worked perfectly on it (for the most part). Ever since I updated through the update app, I can't shutdown or suspend. The computer freezes completely forcing a hard shutdown. Anything else I should add?06:15
Gallomimiawell that's a tough question to answer06:15
roygbivlinuxlove, talk to your network admin guys06:15
roygbivtell them roygbiv sent you :-D06:16
Gallomimiait probably depends on your own network. and your ISP. or possibly you could use some kind of dyn-dns service06:16

linuxloveGallomimia, can i put a domain on the ip later?06:17
Gallomimiashubi: very concise. i've personally heard that updating which distro version you're using often causes strange problems like so06:17
roygbivlinuxlove, you’re mixing terms there. IPs don’t have domains06:17
Gallomimialinuxlove: yep. first thing you need to do is set your system to a static ip. likely you're behind a router and have a private ip. i'm with roygbiv/rainbow-guy there. it seems you should learn some more about networking06:18
shubiGallomimia, so I need to revert back? How?06:19
Gallomimiarevert back? oh no sir. i've heard clean installs are best.06:19
Gallomimiaanyway afaik there's no "revert back"06:20
shubiOkay, so should I download 14.04.4 or 14.04.3 (that worked)?06:20
Gallomimiawell, which do you want?06:21
shubiwell, i guess .3 since it worked?06:21
Gallomimiabut before you get carried away, it sounds like you should report/search-for bugs about this.06:21
shubithe first time it happened i got the "Send Bug Report" window when i rebooted.06:22
shubiSo I sent it to the ether...06:22
ouroumov__shubi, have you try shutting it down from the command line and does that change things?06:23
shubididnt try, how?06:24
ouroumov__shubi, "sudo init 0" is the radical way06:25
ouroumov__"sudo shutdown now" might be somewhat better06:25
shubiwell.. i'm looking for the "regular" way I think?06:25
Ben64sudo poweroff06:26
ouroumov__right there's poweroff too06:26
shubiisn't it the same thing as the gui option?06:30
reisiosame end result, though, /usually/06:30
shubiokay, thanks. this is a usb install. would I be able to clean install over it by using the livecd?06:32

afrokarlssonhi, do you know why dinosauruses died, they eats all food, and fish calls they back into ocean, and fish eats they for that. In bermuda triangle.07:17
jushurSirius__: depends on your isps config, if you want to force a new ip you can spoof your mac address.07:18
wkmanireSirius__: Also depends on if you have a home network (very very likely these days)07:19
wkmanireIf you're connected to a home router or WiFi adapter you'll just be asking your local device for another local IP address. It would have no noticable effect on the outside world at all.07:20

k1l_phiona: please run a "sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean". after that please show the "dpkg -l | grep linux-headers" and put that into a pastebin10:14
phionapers3us: yes . i think my root partition is full. it was partitioned at 20gb.10:15
SevenLiesHas anyone successfully managed to get 4 monitors running?10:15
crestcoreeric : hmm ty, but it took 1.1G of size is there any other version which takes lesser size?10:15
EriC^^crestcore: i think the mini.iso lets you choose what to install, it's pretty stripped down i think10:16
EriC^^crestcore: how big do you want it to be?10:16
k1l_Logicwax: do you have samba shares running?10:17
Logicwaxk1l_: i do10:17
Logicwaxk1l_: it goes on for 1000s of lines, tons of foreign IP addresses10:17
crestcoreEric : i want it to be like 300-400Mb10:18
Logicwaxk1l_: then i see this every so often: http://pastebin.com/BLPXcaMs10:18
phionak1l_: http://pastebin.com/u1bVLham10:18
Logicwaxk1l_: you think its brute forcing my vino server?10:18
Logicwaxi mean why the heck does gnome-session just bark out a timestamp and IP......it could be a little more verbose!10:19
k1l_Logicwax: ah, its a vino server running. that it could be login attempts to that10:19
ufkcan't increase max_connections in mysql. question at http://serverfault.com/questions/759692/increase-max-connections-in-mysql-on-ubuntu-wily10:19
Logicwaxk1l_: so these are vino server login attempts.....NOT gnome-session remote login?  (aka x-forwarding and all that jazz)   right?10:20
k1l_phiona: ok, just carry on with the other commands.10:20
k1l_Logicwax: i am not sure.10:20
k1l_Logicwax: anything from that comming in the auth.log?10:20
Logicwaxwell my fail2ban picks up some of those IPs trying to brute my sshd10:21
Logicwaxand no, not in auth.log10:22
vincent42reisio: no, there's deinitely a bug with terminator and su10:22
k1l_but seems to be known for bruteforcing10:22
reisiovincent42: doubt it10:22
Logicwaxyou mean publicly known?10:23
phionak1l_: http://pastebin.com/nP2mv69x10:23
vincent42reisio: seems you're right10:26
vincent42how did I do my test10:27
reisioyou killed all terminator processes and started a fresh one10:27
reisioyou went back in time10:27
k1lphiona: ok, next one10:28
vincent42but I don't understand what does "su user - " do10:28
Triffid_Huntervincent42: makes a login shell with that user10:29
phionak1l: http://paste.ubuntu.com/15196147/10:29
vincent42I mean, how is that different from "su - user"10:29
vincent42actually, this last form, which work ! seems forbiden from the man of su10:29
vincent42When - is used, it must be specified as the last su option. The other forms (-l and --login) do not have this restriction.10:30
akkonradI have text document with few lines that looks like this: VARIABLE_NAME=variable.value.com10:30
akkonradI would like to extract value of that variables10:30
reisiovincent42: man pages aren't perfect10:30
Ben64su [options] [username]10:30
reisiomy guess would be that - at the end is simply misinterpreted10:31
Ben64su - username... how is - not the last option10:31
reisiopossibly as stdin10:31
reisiopossibly as a strange command10:31
vincent42so "su - user" actually pass "user" as a command ? I don't understand10:31
akkonrad"VAR_NAME=var_value" - how to extract this var_value from string?10:31
Ben64user is the user10:31
vincent42Ben64: user is not an option of -10:31
reisioakkonrad: it's already in the variable10:31
vincent42actually - takes no argument10:31
akkonradreisio, no, it's in string10:31
vincent42reisio: the thing is that only the form "su - user" works properly10:32
akkonradI'm parsing command output10:32
reisioakkonrad: eval, cut -d '=' -f 2-, taster's choice10:32
vincent42so I'm trying to understand why it should be like that10:32
Ben64vincent42: yeah, just like the man page says it will10:32
k1lphiona: ok, we need to do some manual cleaning first to get the package-system running again to do the automatic cleanup: "sudo rm -rf /usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-4*"10:32
vincent42Ben64: but the man page say the opposite , it should be "su user -"10:32
Ben64it doesn't say that at all10:32
reisiovincent42: the man page isn't perfect, but I'm not sure whether it's wrong or not10:32
vincent42Ben64: ok I see now, I confuse "last option" and "last argument"10:33
reisioyou might see if su user -l works10:34
reisiofor lulz10:34
reisionot actual usefulness10:34
vincent42reisio: it does !10:34
reisiovincent42: which'd be in line with the man page10:35
phionak1l: im back at the prompt immediately. is that it?10:36
k1lphiona: yeah, there is no other output. can you chech df -h and -i if there is some more space/inodes now?10:37
vincent42reisio: yeah except in the beginning they don't seem to allow user before options10:37
vincent42but I guess it's fine10:38
reisioprobably down to tradition (su - foo) vs disambiguity (not having options that are nothing but the option switch char '-')10:39
reisiohence, special rules10:39
phionak1l: wait , i did not see the *. can i reissue the command?10:39

Mathisenhello is there any diffrence doing 1. sudo aptitude install NAME then 2. sudo apt install NAME .. it should not right ? still i get NAME missing when i did just apt version of it10:46
Ben64Mathisen: aptitude did (does?) have a problem with multiarch, so it could possibly not work properly10:47
k1lMathisen: use tab completion to make sure there is no typo. and what is "name"?10:47
reisiothey're different, particularly if you're removing instead of installing, IIRC10:47
Mathisenk1l, it was a python package.. i think it was python-mysql my terminal history is gone now10:48
Ben64so whats the actual problem10:48
Mathiseni thought it was strange.. when installed it with  aptitude  it worked but not with just apt10:49
Mathiseni just go on with my life then10:49
k1lthere should not be a difference10:50

dammert89Hi everyone. I was wondering... in my fstab file i want to mount an external hdd. It will be plugged in 90% of the time but when it isn't I don't want there to be mounting errors caused by it not finding the hdd. And then secondly, when I plug it in after system has booted that it will still automount. What should my options be in the fstab file?10:52
Mathisenhow do i check what is using it ?10:52
k1lphiona: does "df -i" show less then 100% now for /?10:53
phionak1l: http://paste.ubuntu.com/15196245/.... THANK YOU VERY MUCH.10:53
k1lphiona: wait, we need to install missing packages now and then make more free space10:54

Mathisendid not kill pid no11:14
k1lplease make very sure its not just minimized.11:14
Mathiseni am11:14

k1lkilling apt/aptitude processes can cause damage to the packagesystem which will be a pain to restore11:15
Mathisenokej so how do i kill all guake terminals running11:15
Mathisenif one of them are still running in background11:16
k1li dont use quake. but seems like you have 4 terminals running there11:16
phionak1l:  there are msgs that seem to go on forever. i cant copy them bcoz  they flash by so fast.11:17
k1lphiona: let it run untill the end. it will take like 20times from the last rm command11:17
Mathisenk1l, so should i just reboot ?11:18
Mathiseni dont want to break my system :(11:18
k1lMathisen: if you know its closed run "kill 27914"11:18
Mathisenk1l, yep working again now11:21
Mathisenit was guake11:21
phionak1l:  what rm command?11:25
ren0v0hi, when i mount NFS the user on ubuntu shows as "98"  and i can't even CD to the directory ?11:25
MathisenBen64, may i ask why asked why i was " running under uid 121 " is this a bad thing ?11:26
k1lphiona: the command we used to make some space before. this long command needs to remove a lot of kernels and header files. so let it run and wait untill you get a prompt.11:26
phionak1l: ok . now i have PROMPT.  whats next? df -h and df-i again?11:30
k1lphiona: yes11:30
reisiothose were some numbers, there11:33
phionak1l: http://paste.ubuntu.com/15196423/11:35
k1lphiona: "df -i" there is a space between :)11:36
k1lphiona: but that looks really better now. 10GB old kernels removed.11:36
k1lphiona: i would suggest to run a "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade" to make sure you have all updates. then you are good to go :)11:37
phionak1l: http://paste.ubuntu.com/15196444/11:40

Nicholas1 how to check if an app is running fine?12:51
Nicholas1i mean how to check its integrity and reliability?12:51
lotuspsychjeNicholas1: what app are we talking about12:52
Nicholas1if an app shows no errors in terminal when running. does it means its fine ?12:52
Nicholas1any app?12:52
Nicholas1i mean i want to check , if its broken or not?12:53
Nicholas1does running through terminal ensure this. say if it starts and exits cleanly?12:54
k1lMathisen: see on systemsettings: software and updates: last tab. if you can install another driver12:54
MonkeyDustNicholas1  are you experiencing issues with some app?12:55
Nicholas1 MonkeyDust yes .  i am getting random lock ups and freezing issues in gnome-system monitor and vlc player12:56
derbieDo i still run sudo aptitude purge ~c ?12:56
Nicholas1 though most of the time they run fine. but sometimes they crash for no reason Monkeydust12:56

fedoenHi, I've been googling for a while and can't seem to find a solution for my problem: I deleted a virtual disk of 8.9G, before the delete I had 4G of free space, after the delete 9.1G, on Ubuntu 15.10 fstab: /media/drive    ext4    defaults        0       2, fdisk -l: /dev/sda2         8626176 252207247 243581072 116.2G  7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT, trash is empty, no .Trash folder on the partition13:13
MonkeyDustfedoen  this is cleaner for technical pastes ... http://paste.ubuntu.com/13:14
mcphailfedoen: was the virtual disk a sparse file?13:16
am3why we don't use hexchat13:16
fedoenmcphail: how can I check, I copied the file to duplicate a clean install, can I verify somehow?13:18
=== logan_ is now known as Guest74173
mcphailfedoen: if you copied the file, it will no longer be sparse (unless you have specifically asked it to be). I suspect it was a sparse file in the first place, so not taking up as much space as you thought13:19
derbieSo how do you recommend i install it?13:19

jpmhI have created a small utility that I want all my users to be able to share, whch directory should I be putting it in, I have ALWAYS been confused by linux's /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin: - or is the answer none of the above13:22
lotuspsychjejpmh: whats your endgoal exactly, sharing what?13:23
jpmhlotuspsychje, it is a small utility that I need all of my shell users to be able to access13:24
fedoenmcphail: thank you for your help, I deleted the new file and it freed up 8.9G as it should, I will pay more attention next time13:25
mcphailfedoen: to explain, type "truncate -s 1000G sparse.img". This will create a file which can expand _up_to_ 1000G, but will actually start off at, essentially, zero bytes until you write to it. If you run "ls -l sparse.img" it will look as if it takes up a lot of space, but it doesn't really13:25

MonkeyDustsly01  14.04 if you want long support, 15.10 if you want the latest13:27

m1dnight_Is it safe to install xfce on a default ubuntu *desktop* machine so that I can use xfce for vnc?13:44
lotuspsychjem1dnight_: vnc isnt very recomended to use for security reasons13:45
lotuspsychje!vnc | m1dnight_13:45
ubottum1dnight_: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX13:45
m1dnight_I know, but that's not a problem, though.13:45
m1dnight_Its over LAN en not exposed to the internet.13:45
max-mlotuspsychje, I don't know, but sudo has a “-K” option to remove the user’s timestamp which should prompt for the password on the next invokation, as far as I know13:46
lotuspsychjem1dnight_: an intruder over the network can exploit vnc also..13:46
lotuspsychjem1dnight_: you asked 'safe' right?13:46
m1dnight_Ah, yes. Let me rephrase :D13:46
lotuspsychjemax-m: tnx for that hint mate!13:46
m1dnight_Will installing xfce4 on a desktop ubuntu machine break the current windows manager? (unity, or what's it caled)13:47
m1dnight_I just want to use XFCE for vnc only.13:47
m1dnight_And leave the default window manager in tact.13:47
lotuspsychjem1dnight_: ah no, you can safely unstall xubuntu-desktop from your current system13:47
lotuspsychjem1dnight_: or lubuntu-desktop as you wish13:47
lotuspsychjem1dnight_: logout/and login to your new desktop13:48
WangDangCan anyone help installing guest additions in an Ubuntu virtualbox vm?  When I run the guest additions script, it says it can't find the headers for the currently running kernel, then part of the script fails. (https://paste.debian.net/hidden/18922920/)  I've checked, and the headers are installed for the currently running kernel (uname -r = 4.2.0-30-generic, linux-headers-4.2.0-30 et linux-headers-4.2.0-30-generic installed)  Does anyone know a way to mak14:02
=== b is now known as Guest70642
k1lWangDang: is linux-generic installed?14:03
WangDangk1l: linux-generic-lts-wily is installed, but not linux-generic14:05
k1lWangDang: also: what guest os exactly?  what host OS?14:05
k1lWangDang: then 4.2.0-30-generic is wrong. that should be named differently when its the hwe kernel14:06
WangDangUbu 14.04 as guest on a debian 8.3 (jessie) host14:06
k1lWangDang: sorry, i was wrong. they didnt name the wily backports with 14.40 in the naming.14:07
WangDangk1l: I have linux-image-4.2.0-30-generic and linux-image-generic-lts-wily installed14:08
k1lWangDang: is this a server install in vbox?14:08
WangDangno, desktop14:08
k1lis xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-core installed?14:09
WangDangk1l: not xserver-xorg and xserver-xorg-core themselves, but I do have xserver-xorg-core-lts-wily and xserver-xorg-lts-wily14:12
k1lWangDang: could be an issue that the script for virtualbox is only looking for that packages and not the LTS-backports packages14:13
WangDangwould it screw anything up to install the ordinary packages rather than the backported ones?14:14
k1lWangDang: worth a try14:16
jesper_k1l: Hello again!14:19
jesper_k1l: I'm having the exact same issues as yesterday haha, only this time when I used dd to move Xubuntu (trying to see if there's a problem with just MATE) I accidently made my USB to be seen as 2 different deviced14:21
k1ljesper_: be sure not to dd to sdb1 but sdb14:21
jesper_k1l: I dd'd to sdb not sdb114:21
jesper_k1l: do you know any way to remove the ubuntu mate dd from my USB-drive?14:22
jesper_or maybe wipe it clean entirely14:23
EriC^^jesper_: dd creates 2 partitions14:23
EriC^^2 odd ones14:23
jesper_EriC^^: oh, ok - do you know how to wipe the usb clean?14:24
k1ljesper_: just format the usb in gparted. create a new dos partition again14:24
EriC^^jesper_: sudo gdisk /dev/sdb , press o, then w14:24
k1ljesper_: and i would not recommend to install over and over again, but better look at what exactly is going wrong and fix that14:24
k1ljesper_: did you try nomodeset?14:25
jesper_k1l: I did not14:25
jesper_EriC^^: I got an error... "Proble opening dev/sdb for readong! Error is 2. The specified file does not exist (yet it does when I write sudo parted -l14:26
EriC^^jesper_: try lsblk14:26
jesper_oooh, it split into sdb1 and 214:26
jesper_EriC^^: But sdb itself still exists as a disk as well14:27
EriC^^jesper_: did you write /dev/sdb or dev/sdb ?14:28
jesper_when I did the 'dd'?14:28
EriC^^no with sudo gdisk14:28
jesper_I wrote dev/sdb14:29
EriC^^ok write /dev/sdb14:29
jesper_EriC^^: Thanks!14:29
EriC^^no problem14:29
jesper_EriC^^: Now I just do the dd thing again but with the new ISO? (right k1l?)14:30
jesper_EriC^^: WHen I write lsblk it still shows up as 2 different sdb1/214:31
k1ljesper_: i would rather try to boot the install with nomodeset and see if you dont need to install over and over again14:31
jesper_k1l: okay, how to I do that?14:31
k1ljesper_: its like buying new cars instead of filling them with gas again.14:31
k1l!nomodeset | jesper_14:31
ubottujesper_: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter14:31
jesper_k1l: haha I understand14:31
jesper_I think bashing went trough that and said that it might not work for later versions or something?14:32
jesper_k1l: I don't exactly remember but I'll try i14:32
k1ljesper_: use the version to edit the kernel line in "grub". that is only for one boot and not persistent. but if that works we can make that alsways use nomodeset14:33
jesper_k1l: I didn't get in to the grub menu with pressing shift14:34
k1ljesper_: you need to press (and hold) it right after the start14:35

jesper_k1l: It's really weird, usually everything is sooo laggy but when I turn it off - during the part before it acctually shuts down it doesn't lag at all14:38
jesper_k1l: none of shift, space or esc worked it seems - I might just be doing it wrong though14:39
Lothenonmaybe it helps pressing the key again and again fast directly after turning on the computer14:41
hateballjesper_: I tend to hammer shift rather than try and hold it14:41
jesper_hateball: I tried that aswell haha14:42
k1ljesper_: you need to press right after the bios is done loading. so try to hit it several times right from the start.14:44
jesper_k1l: I have done that but I can try again14:45
k1ljesper_: i dont know what to tell you else than: this needs to work14:45
jesper_k1l: I understand, I still find it weird that I'm missing icons though14:46
jesper_k1l: Grub loaded!14:47
k1ljesper_: that could be due to video driver issues. that is why we should try nomodeset14:47

jesper_k1l: proprietary, tested drivers14:51

Bassemk1l, Remounting is not supported at present. You have to umount volume and then mount it once again17:11
ubottuTo add new users to your Ubuntu system, follow the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddUsersHowto - For administrative privileges, users need to be made members of the group "sudo" - See !sudo17:11

NeepuHi. Will a 14.04 LTS / 15.10 edition of Ubuntu easily be upgraded to 16.04 LTS?18:19
Kang0what is port forwarding and why it is used or useful18:20
NeepuKang0 port forwarding is to open up a port, and make it available to the internet from your computer.18:20
Neeputldr edition, if you want to learn more about it read about NAT.18:21
adeon_its so that the world can see your internal service that is being ran18:21
Kang0I m not sure what are ports and why it is required even though physical ports are accessible to all18:21
adeon_its used for gaming... http-webservers. services18:22
Neeputo access the internet, you need a IP address and port. For www.google.com, it would be
Neepuwhere 80 is the port.18:22
adeon_Kango, pretend your running a web server that only you can see it at home, then you go to starbucks expecting to be able to reach it, but you wont unless you do port forwarding.18:22
Neeputo access a website/service*18:23
Kang0Oh i see i thought earlier it is only ip address18:24
Kang0Same applicable for ftp?18:24
Neepuyep, except different port18:24
=== thomas_ is now known as Guest92804
Kang0What is ftp port no??18:24
Neepui think..18:24
QORRiE21 is default FTP port, yes18:25
Kang0Is it fixed irrespective of ftp address?18:25
CraigwellThis is a new one to me..18:25
QORRiEKang0, no, any port could be used by FTP software18:25
CraigwellFor whatever reason, 14.04 is defaulting to trying to install on the thumbdrive I'm booting from....... ?!18:25
Kang0Can we use http address instead of ftp address for file transfer?18:25
Craigwelldoesn't want to cooperate.18:25
Kang0Which is faster ftp or http?18:26
adeon_That all depends on your internet speed18:26
QORRiEi would expect FTP to be faster, because of the lack of headers; it's just files being transferred18:26
QORRiEbut it pbly makes no difference18:27
QORRiEin practice18:27
NeepuHTTP is more responsive for request-response of small files, but FTP may be better for large files if tuned properly. FTP used to be generally considered faster.18:27
ouroumov__Craigwell, pretty sure you can pick the drive with the installation wizard18:27
C0r3I made a bootable usb for installing ubuntu 14.04 LTS. When I boot my pd, I'm getting an error '/casper/vmlinux.efi' file not found. And when I check the file opening the usb in pc I can locate the file.18:27
Craigwellouroumov__ yeah something else is going on.. It's a work computer, and I don't think it likes the fact there are 3 windows partitions as primary, and i made one primary for ext4.18:27

Kang0Http ftp what are other transfer methods??18:28
linuxlovei cant find /etc/init.d/rc5.d in ubuntu15.1018:28
adeon_ssh/sftp/scp is the same18:28

alkisgC0r3: is the usb formatted as ntfs? efi doesn't read ntfs18:29
reisioKang0: hrmm?18:29
C0r3alkisg: FAT18:29
CraigwellSo, if I use the install wizard and choose "something else", select the correct sda for bootloader, will it automatically install on my ext4 partition? Should I change mount point on it to / ?18:29
GallomimiaKang0: bluetooth and wifi don't have "ports"18:29
alkisgC0r3: how did you make the stick? did you use some software or tutorial, or did you use the dd method?18:30
reisioKang0: why what?18:30
C0r3alkisg: When I check in the properties of the usb it says, Filesystem type:  msdos18:30
Kang0So which items require port nos and which not?18:30
C0r3alkisg: I used 'Start Up Disk Creator' in ubuntu18:30
adeon_Craigwell make sure you back up before messing with your bootloader :-p18:30
Gallomimiatcp and udp networking protocols.18:30
alkisgC0r3: sudo blkid should tell you the type18:30
Craigwelladeon_ grub usually doesn't ruin my day,18:30
Kang0So wifi or Bluetooth is not part of tcp and udp?  Gallomimia18:31
GallomimiaKang0: no. that's a different layer of the network18:31
Craigwelladeon_ but just to be clear, i should install bootloader on sda, correct? not on sda4 (in this case the ext4 partition i wish to use)18:31
Gallomimiayou can transport tcp and udp over those wireless protocols. then it has ports. but tcp and udp won't know about whether it's wireless or not18:31
adeon_I usually install it on sda and it hasnt gave me any issues18:32
adeon_sda# is usually within that partition number18:32
C0r3alkisg: I think its vfat18:32
alkisgC0r3: is it easy for you to try `sudo dd if=ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdb, where sdb is the stick? But do watch out not to erase any disks if sdb is a disk and not the stick... I'm not sure if the ubuntu usb creator properly supports efi18:32
linuxlovehey guys18:32
linuxlovewhy cant i find /etc/init.d/rc5.d in ubuntu18:33
Gallomimiayes please be careful with dd. be sure before you press enter18:33
Craigwelladeon_ yeah, thats what i was thinking. telling me to select a mount point / is sufficient, no? I'm not splitting it up for upgrade purposes or anything18:33
ouroumov__C0r3, if you go with dd you should type "sync" after the dd command and wait for the prompt to return18:33
k1llinuxlove: ubuntu uses systemd since 15.0418:33
ouroumov__To flush the I/O buffer18:34
Kang0Gallomimia may i ask this?  What is tcp and udp?  And what do you mean by transport?18:34
Gallomimiai think you should study more about networking friend18:34
Craigwelladeon_ I think it's good now, I just never saw the wizard default to wanting to install on the ..install media itself! weird18:34
adeon_cragiwell, it should be fine18:34

nicomachusC0r3: what do you mean check it? an MD5 sum?18:47

alkisgsudo dd if=ubuntu-14.04.4-desktop-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdb19:04
alkisgThat's the whole disk, not its first partition19:04
Guy1524ouroumov__: k19:04
C0r3alkisg: Okay... I'll do it again. And I think I didn't umount it before.19:05
alkisgC0r3: right, unmount it as well19:05
ouroumov__C0r3, and don't forget to "sync" after19:08
C0r3ouroumov__: I will not. I did that in the previous attempt too. :)19:08
scrabcakesCan someone help I've completely destroyed all my hopes and GUIs19:09
ouroumov__scrabcakes, reinstall?19:09
scrabcakesouroumov__: I'd rather avoid that :/ I have unmet dependencies but install -f doesn't fix them19:10
sorinelloHello. Could someone guide me on how to debug an issue I am having with ubuntu ? After starting the PC, I don't gat the login screen at all. I get the cursor that is not blinking19:10
ouroumov__scrabcakes, and you've killed your GUI?19:10
=== PhonicUK2 is now known as PhonicUK
scrabcakesouroumov__: I've basically dug a hole. I started by removing nvidia drivers because they didn't work properly with gnome, now I can't get any graphical output19:11
alkisgscrabcakes: try sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf; sync; sudo reboot19:12
scrabcakesthe closest I can get is the gnome 'dots' loading when it freezes. also the package I can19:13
scrabcakes*I can't install is lightdm, one post said remove and reinstall19:13
alkisgThat probably removed ubuntu-desktop too then?19:13
scrabcakeswould you like me to shout louder from this deep hole I have dug?19:13
alkisgMaybe `sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop` ?19:14
scrabcakesthat doesn't work either, it still says unmet dependencies19:14
alkisgWhich ones?19:14
C0r3ouroumov__: `sync` without any arguments right?19:14
alkisgscrabcakes:  You run `sudo apt-get update` before apt-get install, right?19:15
alkisgOK, put the output of apt-get install ubuntu-desktop, to paste.ubuntu.com...19:15
alkisgYou can use the pastebinit package, or scp if you know it19:15
scrabcakesyes, do you want install ubuntu-desktop or lightdm? lightdm has more problems19:15
alkisgOr put both of them, apt-get install ubuntu-desktop lightdm19:16
alkisgok, it depends on lightdm, it's the same in any case19:16
C0r3alkisg: I tried `sudo kvm -m 512 /dev/sdb`. It opened up a new window and it's giving the same error: '/casper/vmlinux.efi: file not found' <No Texts!>19:17

C0r3alkisg: It says, invalid or corrupt kernel image. What to do? ouroumov__: Any idea?19:31
ouroumov__C0r3, did you check your .iso's checksum before burning it?19:32
Loshkikev999: I don't understand. You say your windows pc putty client crashed. That should have no effect on the *server*. ?19:33
C0r3ouroumov__: No. How to do that?19:34
kev999Think I disabled password login, but was long time ago - forgot what step i took (stupid I know)19:34
kev999I get access denied - PAM auth.log not very helpful19:35
adeon_kev999 do you have access to that machine physically or locally/19:35
ouroumov__C0r3, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VerifyIsoHowto19:35
kev999yes - access to both machines19:35
C0r3ouroumov__: Okay!19:35
adeon_so then just update the sshd_config that way19:35
adeon_if you dont have the password of the unit, drop to a root shell and change it19:36
kev999I have always used root - it's a local test server I have updated line permitrootlogin yes19:37
adeon_if you have root access you should be fine, just modify everything you need on that machine, generate a new key if you need it then you can login from external. I dont recomend you having a root account19:38
adeon_for ssh tho19:38
scrabcakesalkisg: did you leave? ><19:38
kev999it's currently got usepam yes and in the (pam) comments it says pam authentication may bypass permitroot login - not sure why that would be19:38

ioriascrabcakes, did you install   ppa ? xorg-edgers  precisely  ?19:43
adeon_kev999 for security purposes i would not recommend you leave regular login enabled19:43
kev999adeon_ thanks for your help - I'll try that - point on root SSH noted - thanks19:43
rasalghulkil, /home/my_user/.local/share19:43
k1lrasalghul: either you messed with sudo and root or you mean the trash folder on another partition/drive made by the filesystem.19:43
rasalghulbelongs to root but it is my account19:43
kev999where is the regular login enabled set ? are you talking about root?19:43
scrabcakesioria: what do you mean?19:44
k1lrasalghul: ok, so you messed with root? i guess you used sudo nautilus or such. so now use "chown" to get it back: sudo chown username:username /home/username/.local/share/Trash19:45
ioriascrabcakes, how did you install nvidia drivers ?19:45
scrabcakesioria: install nvidia-current. I then removed them. I then removed lightdm as per a post but can't reinstall it!19:45
ioriascrabcakes, don't use ppa ?19:46
rasalghulkil, is because I can't delete files to trash, shows me this: You can not move "X" to the trash. Want to delete it immediately ?19:46
scrabcakesioria: how can I not use ppa?19:46
rasalghulkil, and I look for Trash permission and belongs to root19:47

OnkelTemHi. I'm writing a startup script (service) and have some problems with identifying a process. It's actually the dropbox service process. It's started as ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd, but that is just a wrapper script which then "exec"s dropbox-lnx.x86_64-3.14.7/dropboxd binary. As result, I can stop the service using start-stop-dameon as the lanching and stoping paths are different. Any ideas how to workaround19:55

OnkelTemI can't*19:56

wdblUbuntu used to install perfectly into a VirtualBox guest. Now when I install 14.04 64-bit, I get the lowest resolution (~640x480) and whenever I try to enable the "InnoTek: ...

I've tried everything I found online already (namely:20:06
wdbl"sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms" and the previously mentioned drivers dialog.)20:06
wdblVirtualBox should be available to everybody to test Ubuntu on - I don't understand how this could have gotten screwed up. It's like the most universal hardware ever.20:07

reisioyou're already relying on VirtualBox20:17
reisiothe "cd" is _in_ the repository20:17

wdblOK, so why is there even a package in the repository?20:17

wdblMaybe I'll just follow all those instructs and then install it from the repo instead of from the cd20:17

scwizardstrange that the ubuntu keyserver would work and the gnupg one would not21:28
ouroumov__trunk_monkey, maybe you can use Compton with i321:28
trunk_monkeyactually, compton seems to hvae cleared things up21:28

rud0lfmy problem is skype ( on ubuntu 14.04 ; the receiver of my video call sees me with 1-2 fps, it's not webcam problem, it's not a upstream bandwidth problem21:40
rud0lfi've googled for hours and no result :(21:40
Ben64real solution is to stop using skype21:41
trunk_monkeySkype apparently stopped linux support, I tweeted to bitch at them the otherday, top post on /r/linux21:41

rud0lfi see them fine, and my webcam works ok in preview in skype options21:43
rud0lfseems like skype has problem with timing or a codec, but my english is not well enough to figure out a proper google query21:44
trunk_monkeyhave you tried another service, maybe google hangouts?21:45

jackwebssquinty, cheers, I'll have a look. I'm toying with the idea of switching over to lxde or something to see if that helps23:30
jackwebsI've already disabled all the unity animations and what have you23:30
squintyb0s3d,  you should be prompted for the passphrase after starting the ssh name@ip.  it is the passphrase (password) you entered which you were prompted for when you generated your keys23:30
b0s3dsquinty: well i only get the usually password as if i was logging in with ssh without any keyfile installed23:31

squintyb0s3d,  after generating the keys you will have to use a regular password to ssh into the host and copy the keys over (ssh-copy-id <username>@<host>)  then restart ssh (sudo service ssh restart)23:38
