nokTnewbie question: I copied some files (drag&dropped through visual file manager) from one drive to another, each from different systems.00:21
nokTbrowsing these files from an ordinary user account, I see some files restricted while I can read most of them... when was this permission set? How do I remove the read limit to every ordinary user? Can this be done recursively to a whole directory?00:21
Bashing-omnokT: ' sudo chown -R <user_name>:<user_name> <Path_of_Directory> ' . chown changes the owner of the directory and chmod allows you to change the permissions of the file or directory00:26
Bashing-omchown can change the file owner and/or the file group owner depending on the first argument of the command00:26
Bashing-omnokT: See: ' man chown ; man chmod ' .00:27

Guest18616im having a little problem with this hangman script im writing , was hoping someone could help me00:30
Guest18616first time on the chat, so im sorry for being a noob00:30
Guest18616until [ "empty_array[@]" == "secret_array[@]" ]  do           echo ${empty_array[@]}          echo -n ">"         read selection                   for ((j=0;j < "${#secret_array[*]}";j++)); do                  if       [ "$selection" == "${secret_array[j]}" ]                 then                         empty_array[j]="${secret_array[j]}"                  fi                 done done exit 000:30
Guest18616when the program finds the correct word, in this example "france" it doesnt quit, even though i saw until they are equal00:31
nokTOerHeks, it's ext400:31

Guest18616oh ok thanks00:31

MetacityYou will lose your window decorations (title bars, etc.).01:33
eggggsJacobKlear , you have ati vid card ?01:34
danny_I'm having a hard time understanding this, so Mate is a desktop environment which runs Metacity(Marco) right?01:34
bazhangdanny_, is this a one time watch of a youtube vid or repeated watches01:34
JacobKleareggggs: No I don't have one of those... I have an intel processor that runs graphics too...01:34

danny_bazhang straight diagonal from top right to bottom left01:35
bazhangdanny_, whats the video card, and what driver, how did you install the driver for it01:35
daxati (although it's called amd this decade) works fine in 16.04. it's fglrx that doesn't.01:36

danny_bazhang, its the proprietary driver from Nvidia: 361.42 from nvidia-36101:37
danny_I also have an internal intel graphics card I believe01:37
bazhangdanny_, whats the card make and model01:37
daxJacobKlear: 16.04 isn't offered to 14.04 users until 16.04.1 comes out. Use sudo do-release-upgrade -d if you don't want to wait that long.01:37

NeuthroneHow do I install themes onto Ubuntu, nothing has seemed to work for me. The Unity Tweak Tool does not detect the theme I put in the theme folder.04:04
sponixqengho: That is a shame.. Other than soaking up a lot of ram ZFS is pretty awesome.. I normally find it hard to get excited about a File System.. But even being able to run at good speeds while scrubbing is sweet04:04

qenghosponix: I think it might get 32-bit support soon (as in, enough people use what's already there that it has some precedent and can be turned on) that it won't muddy the installer descriptions and be more of an obvious feature to have.04:07
Neuthronexangua: How do I get this theme to work though?04:07
xanguaNeuthrone: I see the theme was latest updated a year ago, so doubt it works with a recent Ubuntu release https://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Plane-Gtk3.6?content=15630904:09
Neuthronexangua: So which theme would work? Only ones that are GTK1 related?04:09
xanguaTo get it to "work" you'll have to learn gtk theming and dealing with every new gtk 3 release to constantly breaking theming support04:10
xanguaI doubt you use any gtk1 stuff...04:10
Neuthronexangua: Okay, so how do I work with these themes though?04:11
silver-dragonIs there any advantage to running ZFS on a single disk system like a laptop?04:11
xanguaNeuthrone: use a more recent theme or learn yourself to theme gnome-look.org04:12

Ben64fletcher_: sounds like you don't have a driver running for your gpu that supports 3d acceleration05:46
paranoidabhiwhat is a safe way to uninstall?05:46
hiexpoexactly what video card you have05:46
cfhowlettcolby_, happy2help!05:46
Ben64paranoidabhi: dpkg -r <package>05:47
fletcher_Ben I do have the correct drivers installed. I'm running an AMD gpu and it currently runs off the AMDGPu driver as that's the only AMD driver on 16.0405:47
ubottuFor AMD/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VideoDriverHowto05:47

Joralfletcher_, I am still running the radeon driver on 16.04, I'm not saying that its the one that you need, but both open source drivers still exist in 16.0405:49
paranoidabhiBen64, a bit more specific if possible.05:49
Joralhiexpo, the new kernel api for drivers no longer supports fglrx so CCC is not an option on 16.0405:50
fletcher_Well i've tried the radon driver as well. I did something to mess up Mesa i think05:50

reevHii, how can i install google chrome not chromium in ubuntu 16.04 ?05:50
deceiti was just asserting your statement05:50
fletcher_reev you'll have to download it from the google site and install the .deb file05:50
deceitthat this isn't twitter05:51
fnodeuseroh, ok :P05:51
reevfletcher_ I tried but it returns errors while trying to unpack ,I also made some changes to sources.list file05:51
deceitthey do that on other channels here on freenode as well05:51
deceitit's really odd05:52
fletcher_reev I used it myself. so dunno05:52
qenghoreeed: Google distributes Google Chrome. You download a "deb" file and install it, and it alters your software manager to get updates automatically.05:52
fnodeuserwith linux he will start exploring and he will learn05:52
ubottuThe /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is deprecated, but sometimes may still be needed to pass values to specific drivers. See `man xorg.conf` for file structure and syntax. For Ubuntu-specific documentation and more information, see also https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config05:52
qenghoreev: What architecutre is your computer?05:53
qenghoreev: Erase the downloaded "deb" file and retry.05:53

Triffid_Huntertodd: I find samba works great for that, or sshfs if your network is stable.. some purists might suggest nfs but I've played with that for years and it's always caused problems05:55
Joraltodd, personal preference here so take it with a grain of salt, but I would look into Kodi05:56
toddTriffid_Hunter: No I want streaming, some of these videos are huge!05:56

Joraltodd, Kodi offers a client/server architecture with clients available for most OSs including android05:59
Triffid_Huntertodd: what's the difference between what you're talking about and playing a file direct from a network-mounted filesystem?05:59
toddJoral: Kodi looks like what I am looking for but I do not have gui access to the server05:59
Joraltodd, I don't believe you need it but that would be a question for Kodi support06:00
defekttodd, or check out plex has a webserver UI06:01
toddTriffid_Hunter: Streaming = Transcoding the data (IE: only sending limited resolution on a small device, or reducing bandwith needs if the connection is slow). File shares is shareing well files... HUGE differance06:01
=== andreas_ is now known as Guest41667
todddekekt: I THOUGHT plex was non free???06:01
Triffid_Huntertodd: ah, I've never played with transcoding on the fly, my phone has a 1080p screen and plays anything I throw at it06:02

Guy1524hey guys, this is really frustrating, on a laptop w/ integrated graphx and ubuntu 16.04, source games feel extremely choppy and low on framerate even when the framerate is well above the refresh rate.  This happens with vsync on and off06:02
toddTriffid_Hunter: so have you tried playing a 4k 3d video on your phone? I bet it will be laggy06:03
Triffid_Huntertodd: nope, don't have any06:03

Joralsponix, simply running top in lxterminal caused x to crash again.  Any thoughts as to what could be wrong?06:09

qenghok_sze[work]: I bet someone in #debian could fix it.06:14
k_sze[work]ugh, I kept thinking that's the ubuntu wiki. My bad.06:15
sponixJoral: Are you partial to Ubuntu ? You might try either a Clean Install of the Ubuntu Desktop Version, OR hopping around to a few other Distro's and see if they give better results.. At times certain configurations can be detected and ran better on different setups..06:15
GrorcoHello World!06:16
Joralsponix, no other distros besides gentoo provide support for ppc. and I did not find a desktop spin of ubuntu for ppc06:16
sponixJoral: Why on earth are you running a PPC ?06:17
sponixJoral: I'm wondering if "Yellow Dog" Linux still exists ..06:17
Joralsponix, yellowdog no longer exists and this G4 emac was given to me so of course I'm going to put it to use :P06:18
sponixJoral: Okay.. I give you props for that.. Might check FreeBSD or NetBSD to see if they are still active on PPC.. I know a lot of *nix flavors are dropping it due to the Age..06:19
Joralsponix, as I said the two distros that still "offer" support for ppc are ubuntu and gentoo06:20
sponixJoral: I had a friend with an eMac/iMac in College and we had Yellow Dog running on it back then06:20
sergioadHello friends here anoying you with another gamepads question06:21
Joralsponix, ok so debian I believe still offers support as well but thats still going to be the same issues as ubuntu06:21
sponixJoral: likely06:21
logeshwaranhello world06:21
Gooerhi from kenya06:22
logeshwaranim from india06:22
Joralsponix, the other issue is that since I don't have a firewire hdd the only method I can use to try a new distro is to boot from cd which makes the gues and check method very expensive lol06:22
sergioadcould / would a GameSir G3S bluetooth gamepad work with Ubuntu + XBOXDRV using the mimic xpad and mimic xpad wireles options?06:23

antlerinstalled 16.04 on a 14.04 that would not boot. After 16.04 installed, rebooted, ubuntu server doesn't boot. Just flashing cursor. Put in install dvd, ran rescue and now have shell open on / which is a raid. Tried to reinstall grub to 1st disk /dev/sda but it fails.06:24
antlerTried reinstall grub before going into shell obviously06:25
antlerso it seems grub is messed up. How to fix this?06:25
sponixJoral: http://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/macppc/06:27
sponixJoral: Not 100% sure it will do ANY Better, BUT NetBSD is still doing PPC.. Given the install and so forth is probably still a bit rough compared to Linux though06:28
Tin_manantler if it is a grub problem, try this tool: http://www.howtogeek.com/114884/how-to-repair-grub2-when-ubuntu-wont-boot/06:28

Tin_manyou can download it from your live dvd ..06:29
GrorcoHi I want to report a bug for my wifi + bluetooth card, it gets hard locked on suspend but I'm not sure where to file hardware bugs...06:29
Joralsponix, I know that this isn't the powermac channel and I am able/willing to play around with it so if you were looking at a similar issue on x86 what would you think it might be?06:29
GrorcoAlso it's a propriatary driver so I'm not sure if I would have to get ahold of bcm somehow06:30
Joralsponix, also if you do get it from him i will give you my xorg.conf to fix the modeline issues you will have with the new driver06:31
sponixJoral: I might try renaming the xorg.conf file to have it "generate" a fresh one and see if helps at all06:31
sponixJoral: Is there an "Older" X driver that might be more Stable ?06:32
Joralsponix, modern x doesn't use an xorg.conf file so it wont generate one06:32
qenghoGenerate a xorg.conf? Does it write one, or use sane defaults when a file is missing?06:33
sponixJoral: Hmm, it appears my Linux knowledge is getting dated as we speak :P06:33
Joralsponix, i'm not sure how to look at version numbers in apt06:33
Joralsponix, lol, you aren't the only one06:33
qengho$ dpkg -l foo |cat06:33
sponixJoral: So let me get this straight.. X Loads, then it crashes ? Or does it do okay until you start running a few things ?06:34
boodllebati just install manpages-posix-dev06:34
Joralsponix, x loads and I can log in etc, but as soon as I do anything to put a load on the system the screen becomes a blinking light06:34
boodllebatand when i do man sys/types.h , i never finds it06:34

toddqengho: I have ssh access to the server, but not a X11, and I have never done that before, and kodi has a web interface, but its disabled, I am trying to enable the web interface07:10

toddducasse: sure, so how do I run the x11 interface via ssh?07:11
ducassetodd: 'ssh -X'07:12
ducassetodd: but it will be _slow_07:12

ducasseJoral: in the top right corner, i think.07:27
ducasseJoral: either that or close to your username, it depends on which greeter and theme you're using.07:28
Joralducasse, I checked both of those locations and didn't see one.  Trying lxdm really quick to see if it does any better.07:29
ducasseJoral: did you install xubuntu from scatch or just the desktop?07:29
Joralducasse, I installed all of the xubuntu packages07:30
ducasseJoral: if you were using another dm before, i don't think that will swap it to lightdm unless you do 'dpkg-reconfigure lightdm'07:31
Joralducasse, was using lubuntu prior which was also using lightdm07:32
ducasseJoral: ok. then there should definitely be a menu to select desktop, i'm using lightdm myself.07:33
Joralducasse, I re-enabled lightdm and ran dpkg-reconfigure lightdm just to be sure07:34
Joralducasse, ok I feel stupid now, its right next to the locale selection and i just didn't realize that was another menu07:36

chinamikeydoes anyone know if I can install apache or nginx to a partition using a live Ubuntu DVD?07:43
toddcinamikey: yes, but you probably want to actually install the os, as a reboot will wipe out your install07:44
Triffid_Hunterchinamikey: into an existing linux install on the partition? sure, you can chroot in, but it would be heaps easier to boot it normally..07:44
ducassetodd: see the answer i wrote to you earlier, there are a couple of suggestions.07:45
chinamikeyOk, thanks Triffid. I have a few live DVDs, and I do have a server iso, but...no media to burn it to!07:46
juanonymoushow do i completely remove windows from a dual boot?07:46
chinamikeythis will be my first time to mess with server. Putting on an old laptop on 2nd partition.07:46

Triffid_Hunterchinamikey: most modern liveDVDs can be put on a usbkey and work fine07:47
chinamikeyah...ok. I can go apache then. Just experimenting07:47
chinamikeyI know I will run it from terminal, and that is what I am looking forward to.07:48
chinamikeyTriffid, I am going to put this on an OLD 10yr laptop! Won't read from usb!07:48
chinamikeythanks though07:48
Triffid_Hunterchinamikey: 10y old should be new enough to boot from usb, might have to flip some bits in the bios first though07:49

chinamikeyno blank dvds. I have three full external drives, so...trying to think of something07:50
ducassesruli: are you using lightdm?07:51
chinamikeyright now all I can think of is dropping in the live Ubuntu, install that, and then add apache software and related?07:52

ducassesruli: how is this script started? i'm guessing the environment is not set up correctly.07:57
sruliducasse: no environment, just #!/bin/bash dm-tool lock07:58
ducassesruli: yes, but how is it started?07:58
srulii call the script with "sudo /path/to/script/, but the command in the script is "sudo -u user dm-tool lock"07:59
ducassesruli: sudo strips the environment for safety.08:00
sruliducasse: how can i get the environment in that script, it has to be called with sudo as its executed somewhere along a chain of scripts which all require sudo08:01
ducassesruli: in that case you need to set up the environment manually in the script, you will probably need at least DISPLAY, XAUTHORITY and XDG_SEAT_PATH08:02

sruliducasse: ^^08:03
ducassesruli: just see what those variables are set to in your normal shell and replicate the values08:03
=== zel is now known as Guest13284
sruliducasse: how do i see that08:04
ducassesruli: 'echo $DISPLAY', and then do the same for the other variables, and set them all in your script.08:04
=== CharlesMu1 is now known as CharlesMu
sruliducasse: what do I put in the script? "export DSIPLAY=:0" ?08:06
ducassesruli: yup.08:06
qenghoThe Right Way is to use "sudo -E" or define the variables to survive passing with "visudo" and "man sudoers".08:07
sruliducasse: i get an error "sudo: export: command not found" i tried with "sudo -u user export..." and just "export..."08:11
ducassesruli: put the variables in the script, not on the sudo command line.08:13
Triffid_Huntersruli: export is a bash builtin, what shell are you using?08:13
sruliducasse: i put it in the script...08:13
sruliTriffid_Hunter: i am using a sh script08:13

SchwarzbaerHi. I've got a problem on my ecryptfs volume. I can reproducibly cause an error that looks like a file system error. I've checked the FS on the partition beneath the encryption (/dev/sda3), no errors there. Now how can I check the encrypted FS itself? Each time I boot from a stick and open the volume, I then can't run fsck, as that tells me that the device is busy (which, as the partition is now not only decrypted, but mounted, isn't surprising).08:41
ducasseSchwarzbaer: afaik, there's no way to do that. the fs you'd want to check is the underlying one, as you've correctly done. i suspect a file has been corrupted, or there is a fuse/ecryptfs bug.08:45
Schwarzbaerducasse, then the solution here is what? Backup everything, reformat, get back data?08:45
Siilwyn[m]1Hi people, I'm thinking about installing 16.04... I read that 16.04.1 will include support for more hardware and include updates. Will 16.04 get the same hardware support and updates when 16.04.1 is out?08:45
cfhowlettSiilwyn[m]1, yes08:46
ducasseSchwarzbaer: it would probably be best to backup the unencrypted data you can get at and recreate the ecryptfs.08:46

Siilwyn[m]defekt (IRC): yes but it should send the file when on the page I send right?08:58
Siilwyn[m]If you click 'download' on the page you send it asks for a donation, so I did, then it sends me to the page with a thank you and in the url you see it includes the version and all, I was kind of confused there where I could it08:58
Siilwyn[m]that means you'll have to go back and click 'no thank you' even though you donated08:58

Ben64yep thats part of the man page10:08
zenith_Tried the same10:08
Ben64what exactly are you typing10:08
zenith_zenity --General --window-icon=ICONPATH10:08
Ben64nowhere in the man page does it say --General10:08
zenith_But I used others as info in such format!10:09
zenith_and that worked10:09
Ben64because they're in the man page10:09
zenith_zenity --info --text="Bye"10:10
zenith_It works10:10
Ben64yep, those are in the man page10:10
Ben64--flarpyfoo "bob" won't work because it's not in the man page10:10
qofcheezcan anyone direct me to where I might find some technical support?10:10
Ben64qofcheez: for ubuntu, right here10:11
Dandelsqofcheez, just ask the question. Someone will answer if they know the answer10:11
Dandels(That sounded more blunt than I intended it to)10:11
qofcheezok it's a bit long but I'll boil it down10:11
qofcheeznew installation, not recognizing network hardware, broadcomm device10:12
qofcheezknow what I need to install,tried following instructions won't work10:12
qofcheezno direct line to internet, no cd drive, mounted iso from usb as cd drive, won't work10:12
Indrekwhat is a proper way to remove hdd from ubuntu ?10:13
qofcheezneed firmware-b43-installer but how to get it and how to install it?10:13
zenith_Ben64 : What do you wanna say ?10:13
zenith_In zenity --info --text="Bye", info is the option for zenity ! that's why I used --general !10:13
hateballqofcheez: well you will need some device that has access to the internet at least, and a means to transfer to the computer, USB or such10:13
Ben64zenith_: because it literally says "--info" in the man page! IT NEVER SAYS --General!!!10:13
qofcheezgot another laptio here that can do that10:13
Ben64zenith_: you made up that option and are wondering why it isn't working. it's because you made it up!10:14
DandelsSo your issue is that you know the package you need but not now to get it to the computer you want to install on?10:14
qofcheeztried this: https://itsfoss.com/fix-no-wireless-network-ubuntu/  but once I hit apply changes the cd unounts and nothing happens10:14
qofcheezI used another site to determine what my exact hardware is and what package applies10:15
zenith_Ohk Just mention the option for designing (size, layout , window icon,etc.)10:15
hateballqofcheez: yes it requires you have working internet10:15
Dandelsqofcheez, you get your exact hardware by opening a terminal and typing "lspci"10:15
qofcheezone the ubuntu laptop or the spare?  I have it on the spare10:15
hateballqofcheez: but you can manually download http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/all/firmware-b43-installer/download and http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/amd64/b43-fwcutter/download10:15
Ben64zenith_: are you serious? you pasted the relevant section from the man page10:15
qofcheezoh, hate ball that looks brilliant will try that one\10:16
hateballqofcheez: so put those two in a folder of your choice, open a terminal and navigate to the folder, then run "sudo dpkg -i *.deb"10:17
zenith_Ben64 : zenity --window-icon=ICONPATH doesn't works even10:17
hateballqofcheez: and hopefully there will be no complaints, and one reboot later you're all set10:17
zenith_says choose appropriate dialo option!10:17
qofcheezthank you so much, I will trot off and try that and let you know.10:18
Ben64zenith_: right, so choose the the type of dialog10:18
zenith_Ben64 : Can you refer to a more detailed description for usage (any source)?10:20

akikwell for a 4 terabyte disk it is10:24
ducasselosh: because nobody has made one that they are willing to support/maintain?10:24
Ben64no, it isn't10:24
akikBen64: so the default is to let it do the initialization in the background?10:24
Ben64it doesn't take long to do a quick format, that's why it's called a quick format10:25
akikBen64: what is a quick format? i've never seen that with mkfs10:25
Ben64where it just writes the stuff it needs to use the partition as <filesystem> and says the rest of the partition is empty10:26
akiksuperuser.com says that it's this option which enables that background processing "-E lazy_itable_init=1"10:29
Ben64not the same thing10:31

hateballakik: Also if you're comparing ext3 and ext4... ext4 is so much faster in all kinds of operations10:32

ram___Hi. Can I install OpenStack Liberty using the OpenStack Autopilot 15.01?10:49
ashmew2xrandr -q shows that HDMI-1-2 is connected, hateball ducasse10:49
hateballashmew2: do you have a Fn+some key to switch outputs?10:49
ashmew2could be, sorry I've never done it before10:50

ashmew2As soon as I did Fn+F1, I did get a display on the monitor!10:52
ashmew2But it kept trying to adjust itself, and finally died, crashing my display and logging me out10:53
ram___ducasse: thank you10:53
hateballashmew2: can you just use the regular monitor control thing to choose outputs? I dont run Unity myself, but I assume there is such a function in the GUI10:54
ram___Hi. Can I install OpenStack Liberty using the OpenStack Autopilot ?10:54
ducasseashmew2: or install and run arandr10:54
ashmew2ram___: someone said #ubuntu-server, why are you back here?10:54
ashmew2hateball: do you mean the displays settings? It shows Display and Unknown Display10:55
ashmew2ducasse: arandr? Cool, I'll install it10:55
hateballashmew2: yeah if it cant read EDID I guess it will show unknown display. as I said I dont run Unity10:56
ducasseashmew2: or try 'xrandr --output HDMI-1-2 --auto'10:56

zenith_Eric^^ Does the number signifies the type of error if there is in failure?11:15
zenith_number from echo $?11:15
Triffid_Hunterzenith_: yes, it's program specific though, each program chooses its own return codes. 0 = success11:15
EriC^^zenith_: depends, usually 0 is success and 1 is failure, above 128 is a segfault i think11:15

rbernHi, I dont regurarly use Ubuntu, I use debian, but while developing a project of mine (http://github.com/rbern/debroot) I'm facing a doubt: ubuntu, as oposed to debian, does upgrade the kernel version during a release cycle? I ask this because when I run an "apt-get upgrade" apt says it will keep files from upgrading, linux-image-generic being one of them. If I don't upgrade the kernel version I dont get new kernel security updates? TY and sorry for long11:55
rbern question.11:55
hateballqofcheez: if you run "lspci -k" what does it say for the broadcom card?11:55
k1l_leeyaa: can you show the output of autoremove?11:56
hateballrbern: security updates are backported. with LTS releases you also have the options of using a newer LTS-kernels for hardware support purposes etc11:56
leeyaak1l_: yeah one sec11:56
hateballqofcheez: and if you run "iwlist scan" there's nothing showing?11:57
leeyaak1l_: here is the output: https://bpaste.net/show/47f650ece6bd from these I know for sure I need the nodejs package. but considering i want to keep one - there might be more.11:57

hateballqofcheez: see if anything is blocked12:00
k1l_leeyaa: hmm, i would run the updates fist12:00
rbernty hateball. if security upgrades are backported the fact that linux-image-generic not being upgraded means that there were no security updates since April? sorry for my confusion.12:00
leeyaak1l_: update or upgrade (note i dont want to upgrade)12:00
qofcheezno soft or hard block, but it's talking about bluetooth  hateball12:00
k1l_leeyaa: both. why dont you want to upgrade the packages? apt full-upgrade will not bring you to a new ubuntu release but makes sure all security updates are installed12:01
leeyaak1l_: because it is out of scope atm12:01
leeyaait would be a big project12:01
leeyaai usually keep the system up to date by installing just security updates12:02
leeyaaand it still needs to be qaed12:02
k1l_leeyaa: well, its your call. for the autoremove issue: you might have removed a metapackage which installed all these  and now they are marked as unused. you can manually mark them with "apt install package"12:05
hateballrbern: that package is just a meta-package that points to the latest kernel which is linux-image-4.4.0-28-generic12:06
leeyaak1l_: thats plausible. you mean if i review the list, install all packages i want manually the next autoremove should skip them, correct ?12:06
hateballrbern: as for the release date I dont recall when it was last updated, but it's recently12:07
leeyaamakes sense. thanks!12:07
leeyaaits good since ill be able to free some 100-200MB and i need to keep the system's / on 1GB or 2GB12:07
rbernhateball, yes, now it is 4.4.0-28 but when xenial was -21. I'm upgrading and its downloading from security.12:07
rbernI guess thats the normal behavior. Debian stable sticks to the same kernel version the whole release cycle.12:08
rbernty hateball12:08
k1l_rbern: http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/main/l/linux-meta/linux-meta_4.
k1l_rbern: so does ubuntu. one release = one kernel base. except for the LTS where you can use the backported kernel and xorg from the hardware enablement stack12:09
=== Guest19854 is now known as ThomasDieTomate
rbernk1l_, ty. so it's the kernel ABI that is upgraded, the kernel version will always be 4.4.0 if I dont enable backports. Got it.12:13
rbernis there an shortcut command to auto remove old kernel packages?12:14
qofcheezhey hateball any thoughts?  will the ethernet ideally still potentially work at this point, or is that now off the table12:15

SchwarzbaerHi. I found that a supposed workaround to the disk problem I have is to use the kernel boot parameter "libata.force=noncq". Sysadmin told me to add that to /boot/grub/grub.cfg. That file, in turn, says "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE", "It is automatically generated by grub-mkconfig using templates from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub". Looking at those, I have NO idea at all what's going on. So how *do* I specify that boot parameter, the Ubun12:16

BluesKajHey all12:16
hateballSchwarzbaer: edit /etc/default/grub12:17

madhu__Ducasse : what is /dev/md126_raid112:43

madhu__Ducasse : understand it is in Readonly Mode.12:45

SchwarzbaerHow can I check with what parameters the currently running kernel was started? 'Cause apparently, *that did nothing* with regards to my problem.12:46
ducassemadhu__: no, it won't if the device is read only. this might be a problem with your bios raid, i can't help you with that. i've told you what to do instead, and it's a much better solution.12:47

EonUmbreonHi... I am running Ubuntu GNOME.13:13
EonUmbreonI just removed plymouth, and now GDM wont startx when I hit log in13:13

EonUmbreonIf I open a TTY and run startx, it is fine13:14
EonUmbreonAny ideas?13:14
zteamwh0ami, I have not checked if the source package for aircrack-ng is in the repo but if it is, that command should get it for you :-)13:14
Guest89955Hi all im back last week i had really messed up pc from installing windows 10 that and then Ubuntu Mate that messed up all my loader i was not able to boot into bios or make any f keys work from bios and boot , so i took my self patient did google ubuntu low level formatt commands from Terminal  , and finally did remove Ubuntu Mate , then i did usb key boot and nuke and did low level formatt and bang here i am with shiny new windows13:14
EonUmbreonThis is a fresh install too, I just didnt want plymouth installed :/13:15
zteamEonUmbreon,try  sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm13:15
EonUmbreonzteam ok will do :) I am just upgrading my software from apt, so I cant call dpkg till that has done. Will give it a try in a second :)13:16

EonUmbreonphilm88 oh. Um... I will have a think13:18
zteamEonUmbreon, :-)13:19
philm88EonUmbreon: thanks (:13:20
ducassephilm88: i think you can set rsyslog up to output messages from cron to the console - would that work?13:21
EonUmbreonIt is weird cause if I uninstall plymouth it removes lightdm and if I remove gdm it installs plymouth and lightdm again :D13:21
EonUmbreon** :S13:21
philm88ducasse: potentially - I'll take a look. Although, this is in a docker container and my understanding of docker containers is they're generally not meant to be running too much in terms of background services like rsyslog13:23
zteamEonUmbreon, if you have aptitude installed you can ask it why it want to remove or install a certain package13:23
zteamEonUmbreon, if not you can install it by just running sudo apt-get install aptitude13:26
EonUmbreonIt is apparently because of Nvidia drivers requiring it..but i dunno why13:26
zteamEonUmbreon, now can run aptitutude why plymouth13:26
EonUmbreonOh. Apparently GRUB wont recognise my keyboard now either13:27
EonUmbreonGimme a sec :) thanks for this btw13:27
EonUmbreonOh! It logged in ^.^13:27

m1dnight_I messed up with the dual boot :p :<14:51
lyzem1dnight_, nuu, what did you doß14:57
lyze / what happens?14:57
m1dnight_For some reason I don't have an EFI partition. I did remove a small partition in GParted (when Ubuntu used to boot). I did so because I could no longer startup Refind.14:57
m1dnight_I googled that and the person said "remove the very first small partition"14:57
m1dnight_Which I did :< I should have not done that :p14:57
lyzeNope you shouldn't have done that x)14:57
m1dnight_Now when I try to run refind it says "Can not find efi partition"14:57
m1dnight_Which probably was the one I deleted :>14:58
lyzebecause you deleted it ^^14:58
m1dnight_So now Im kinda stuck. I can't find much on google.14:58
lyzewhat you could do is use grub or another bootloader for both, mac and ubuntu14:59
lyzeif ubuntu still works ^^14:59
m1dnight_No, I can only boot into OSX now :D14:59
m1dnight_Damn my incompetence14:59

lyzeCan't help you though sicne I need to go, sorry x)15:00
m1dnight_Yeah, that's what's not working.15:00
m1dnight_Ill give the manual install another shot. And worst case I can reinstall my OSX and start over.15:00

DeMiNe0Can someone tell me exactly what assigning as an interfaces IP does? I'm setting up KVM with several tagged vlans inside a lab network attached to our main network. In order for systems to see eachother I needed to make the IP of the tagged bridge
DeMiNe0My understanding is that is an alias for all attached IP's16:28
DeMiNe0But in this case, does that simply tell ubuntu that the interface has no IP?16:29

naccGuest82390: i'm honestly not sure if you can easily 'migrate' an existing windows installation to a guest; I'm guessing not, as it needs some driver help19:24

Guest82390ok, I saw an option in Virtual Machine Manager "Import existing disk image". I guess that's not it?19:26
naccGuest82390: i guess that might work; but based upon that kvm page, i think windows doesn't "just work" as a guest, it needs some assistance (not sure, and MonkeyDust is probably right as it's a general question about kvm)19:27

Brintwatch this if you don't know about -s http://ss64.com/bash/ftp.html19:40
Brintit's first option19:40
naccBrint: why would you read some random webpage's manpage. On 16.04, ftp has no -s option.19:41
paranoidabhiI am bit confused, how does kernel and ubuntu work.19:42
paranoidabhiubuntu latest kernel is 4.4.. but the actual latest one is 4.719:42
nacc!latest | paranoidabhi19:42
ubottuparanoidabhi: 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.19:42
ioriaparanoidabhi, it may depends on your video drivers or on the way you used to install 4.719:42
paranoidabhidoes ubuntu make changes to the kernel before installing?19:43
naccparanoidabhi: it's not "4.4" which would imply 4.4.0, but it's 4.4.0-28 (at this point), which means 28 sets of patches have been applied19:43
nacc(at least 28, i guess tehcnicallyh)19:43
k1l_Brint: that could be due to the version of ftp in that website and the one used in your ubuntu release19:43
naccparanoidabhi: that question is very vague, but yes, the ubuntu kernel is not just '4.4.0' unmodified19:43
paranoidabhinacc, i installed 4.7rc which works ok. Should I downgrade?19:43
naccparanoidabhi: you should not run the mainline Linux kernel unless you have a very good reason to, and know what youa re doing.19:44
naccparanoidabhi: particularly not an RC kernel19:44
MonkeyDustparanoidabhi  trey removing 4.7 and then boot into 4.419:44
Brintcool now I'm taking it direct to the issue if you couldn't get it till now !19:45

scghey everyone! If I want to be involved in the community and start helping the project, where can I start?19:45
paranoidabhiMonkeyDust, why is removing 4,7 necessary?19:45
naccscg: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ContributeToUbuntu19:45
paranoidabhiCan't use multiple kernels.19:45
MonkeyDustparanoidabhi  why is having it necessary?19:45
ioriaparanoidabhi,  usually you install a new (unreleased) kernel when you have a piece of hardware not working ....19:45
paranoidabhiMonkeyDust, Testing a upstream bug.19:45
paranoidabhiioria, yes. That is my case.19:46
MonkeyDustparanoidabhi  first try a solution with the mainline kernel, you can ask here for help19:47

ioriaparanoidabhi,  oh, i see19:48
wallbrokeni started ubuntu live, and i want to access to ntfs hard disk to save data and write it on another external hard disnk ntfs, is possible?19:48
paranoidabhiioria, no. I thought it would work, why caused it not to? I am a bit confused.19:49
naccBrint: sounds like a basic routing problem. Is the port for ftp open to that server to systems outside your newtork?19:49
scgubottu, k1l_: thanks!19:49
naccBrint: note that ftp is incredibly insecure, and doing so probably exposes your system to vulnerabilities19:49
k1l_Brint: there is already a sftp server included in ssh. so you can use that with your ssh account.19:50
samwilliamnacc is right, give a try to sftp19:50
naccparanoidabhi: you *are* able to boot into it. not being able to boot into a kernel would mean you'd get a panic, or oops or some error. Your DM/DE is not loading, which ioria tried to give some hints on.19:50
samwilliambut if the problem is inside your LAN, check your config19:51
Bashing-omscg: Another starter for contributions to the community : http://cheesehead-techblog.blogspot.com/2015/10/point-new-participants-to-find-task.html .19:51
Brintsamwilliam : what config?19:51
paranoidabhinacc, 1.but what caused it not to work 2. which hints, sorry not sure?19:51
ioriaparanoidabhi,  you can always reinstall the kernel with sudo apt-get install linux-generic19:52
samwilliamalso check your firewall19:52
Brintit is ok with that. Btw what is the command to check port forwarding status ?19:52
paranoidabhiioria, True but I have not uninstalled anything.19:53
ioriaparanoidabhi,  it's odd, i see19:53
naccparanoidabhi: i don't know what might have changed to break things, sorry19:53
naccparanoidabhi: < ioria> paranoidabhi,  so, have you tried to restart the dm, ot another de, or remove any proprietary video drivers or stuff like that ?"19:54
naccparanoidabhi: or inspected the logs for what might have failed19:54
Brintsamwilliam : I think you are familiar with inet and ip address ?19:54
BrintTo further clarify I need to add that ftp is accessible from within same lan !19:56
paranoidabhinacc, which one /var/log/syslog?19:56
samwilliamBrint, that is not a big deal19:57
samwilliamyou can use netstat to check your ports19:58
Brintsamwilliam : then I think you know the format to specify the ip and inet address while using ftp commnd ?19:58
BrintOr in other way I can scan for open ports on my address with some utility ! Right samwilliam ?19:59
Brintnetstat then ?20:00
nicomachusBrint: netstat will do the job. check out the man page for it20:00
samwilliamor nmap also20:01
akikBrint: to check open ports on your machine "netstat -tulpan | grep LISTEN". to check open ports on another machine "sudo nmap ip.add.re.ss"20:01
=== mkultra_ is now known as mkultra
akikBrint: but for ftp client, it's just "ftp ip.add.re.ss"20:02
samwilliamnmap -Pn IP_ADRESSS -p PORT_NUMBER20:02
naccBrint: your ftp server, is it on a public IP?20:03
BrintOhk I used Angry ip scanner to scan my address and that shows open ports including 2120:03
naccBrint: or is it on an internal IP and behind a router or whatever20:04
kulelu88Hi all20:05
nessus_just a query. can you not just install the gui version of nmap. it provides pretty great options.20:06
Brintnacc : In the beginning I asked you for public and private ip specification format in ftp and you replied back saying that doesn't makes sense !20:06
akikBrint: you give the ftp client the ip address of the ftp server. that's it20:07
samwilliamLooking for security, ftp doesn't make sense at all20:07
naccBrint: because it doesn't (stop using ! as your only punctuation.). You ftp to an IP. It doesn't matter if it's public or private (your terms) or internal or external to your network configuration. I think you are misunderstanding, basically how networking works. And i don't htink you should be setting up an Ftp server (which *is* insecure) if that's the case.20:07
jdo_dkWhat is the best indexer to ubuntu ? I want to find all files which contains a specific word / sentence on a server.20:08
ahtikI'm somewhat troubled with ubuntu crontab syntax for intervals.  10 * * * * ls works but 10/10 * * * * ls is giving "bad minute" error. Any ideas?20:08
akikahtik: you probably want "*/10 * * * *"20:08
jdo_dkahtik: What do you want? If you want every 10 minute, try */1020:09
kgirthoferhey all - my computer is constantly slow loading websites - even local pages. Chrome always just hangs on "waiting for $HOSTNAME$" any ideas where to start?20:09
BrintWell my ftp server is connected to internet via wlan0 !20:09
ahtikakik: I'd like to start from :10.  But yea, now I realize that 10/10 would still include :00 either way so */10 would be correct.20:10
jmspeexSo I just tried updating a 14.04 VM to 16.04 and somewhere in the distupgrade it crashed and now I can't even boot it as it won't recognize my disk encryption password20:10
jmspeexHas anyone encountered that before?20:11
nacc!ltsupgrade | jmspeex20:11
ubottujmspeex: Users of 14.04 LTS will be offered the automatic upgrade when 16.04.1 LTS is released, which is scheduled for July 21st.20:11
akikahtik: i think */10 starts on the tenth minute, not on 020:11
samwilliamBrint, a recommend you read about ftp, network, and security before put it out.  PLease, don't make your server a zombie20:11
jdo_dkakik: Im pretty sure */10 equal, 0,10,30,40,5020:12
jmspeexOh, so 16.04 isn't even out? I'm not sure what it updated to then :-(20:12
k1l_jmspeex: no. the official lts upgrade is to the 16.04.120:12
k1l_jmspeex: what exact command did you use to upgrade?20:12
Picijdo_dk: and 2020:13
jdo_dkPici: Yeah, forgot 20. :p20:13
jmspeexk1l_: I could tell you for sure if I still had my history :-(. Some command-line tool with the -d option20:14
ahtikakik: jdo_dk: yea, */10 would start from 0. But as I have two cron rows that should not overlap, I'd need to start the second row with :10 and was hoping 10/10 would just exclude the first full hour  tick. Back to the drawing board I guess.. :)20:14
jmspeexwhich didn't complete the update, so I had to manually do an upgrade -f and then a dist-upgrade (which is the one that crashed)20:14
k1l_jmspeex: yeah, that -d is for "developer". you did the developer upgrade to 16.04 since the LTS path is not opened until 16.04.1 is released20:14
jmspeexso there's no 16.04 (with no .1)?20:15
akikahtik: you could experiment with 1-59/1020:15
jdo_dkahtik: How about: 5,15,25,35,45,55 and */10 for the other one ?20:15
ahtikakik: that would run 1,11,21,31 etc.20:16
k1l_jmspeex: sure there is. but the direct upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 is opened when 16.04.1 is released. since you use LTS, you dont want hasty upgrades20:16
jmspeexAh I see20:16
k1l_jmspeex: so look at the logs what is going wrong.20:17
jmspeexkl23: I have no logs, I can't even get to the encrypted disk20:17
jmspeexI meant k1l_20:17
k1l_uh, even encrypted. remove the "quiet splash" from the kernel line and see what it shown20:17
kulelu88in this explanation: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Apt-Cacher-Server#Import_existing_cached_Packages   ... is apt-cacher simply doing a symlink to my main /var/apt/cache/ or is the command actually pulling in all the .deb packages?20:18

MishtiWhich is the package for mouse server in ubuntu ?20:57
precise|srsI don't know if that is what is to blame, but it is good practice.20:57
Guy1524ok then, how do I do it fomr command line20:58
MishtiNeed to access touchpad in some remote device !20:58
akikGuy1524: there's a tool called xdotool which can manipulate xorg windows20:58
precise|srsGuy1524: md5sum "your iso here".iso20:59
Guy1524l thx20:59
Guy1524*k lol20:59
precise|srsCompare the output to the sums provided by Ubuntu20:59
precise|srs^ Can be found in the cdimages downloads directory.20:59
MishtiIs there any type of mouse server available in ubuntu ?21:00
akikGuy1524: also wmctrl can manipulate windows21:01
Guy1524ok, the md5sum is the same21:02
Guy1524akik: why would I need a program that can manipulate windows21:02
Guy1524what I want is for unity to stop messing up and recognize open windows21:02
akikGuy1524: i was just thinking that you could get that window visible first, if it saves it position on exit etc.21:03
Guy1524I can open the windows fine21:03
MishtiNobody knows?21:03
akikGuy1524: you were just saying that the program opens but you don't see it21:04
Guy1524this is getting frustrating, the windows do open, but unity doesn't recognize that they are open, therfore I can not see them in ALT+TAB or as open in the taskbar21:04
Guy1524I can see it on the screen, but not in the task bar or ALT+TAB21:04
akikGuy1524: install wmctrl, then use "wmctrl -l"21:04
Guy1524what would that do?21:05
Guy1524akik: wmctrl -l recognizes all open windows21:06

ph88^i'm on ubuntu 16.0421:14
Guy1524I finally fixed it!!!!!21:15
MonkeyDustGuy1524  how did you do it21:15
Guy1524phew, that was so annoying21:15
Guy1524I went into unity tweak tool and clicked restore defaults21:15
a7i3nI also like Unity... But I like i3 better... so I run both...21:15
Guy1524and that took away everything but the wallpaper and the applications21:16
Guy1524so I went into compizconfigsettings manager21:16
MonkeyDustGuy1524  remember: ranting and cursing is the only language that every computer understands21:16
Guy1524and turned on the unity plugin21:16
Guy1524and everything works now21:16
Guy1524cya guys, sorry for getting really frustrated21:17
Guy1524oh one more question, in xrandr, if a certain resolution has 59.99 or 60.2 fps, does it pretty much mean 60?21:18
Guy1524or is the refresh rate actually something really close to 6021:18
daxit means 6021:18
dax(and I think it's Hz?)21:18
Guy1524ok thanks21:18

bpromptGlorfinde1:    you could always  hmm if it's just one .deb file, try to install it manually, sounds to me it may not be installing due to missing dependencies though, though the installer you're using, is not showing any errors, anyhow, try doing it manually -> sudo dpkg -i FILENAME.deb <---   then run an -> sudo apt-get check <-- to see if anything is broken, if so, then do a -> sudo apt-get -f install <- to see what action can be t22:35

Glorfinde1but in your analogy it wasn't the stereo that was defective22:52
bpromptGlorfinde1:     well, the glass is half-empty of half-full, it depends on where you want to look at it, the car stereo manufacturer is meant to do testings and make dead-sure it works on the intended models, they do their implementation independent of toyota, thus the stereo working or not working is indeed their fault22:57
