mateyconflict with broadcom driver00:08
asunderI installed ubuntu 16.04 via USB drive and now the USB drive no longer loads on boot (my laptop goes straight to grub). Any ideas? I haven't changed anything in the bios: USB is still first in the boot order.00:08
naccmatey: so just blacklist the driver?00:08

naccmatey: `grep BT_INTEL /path/to/your/kernel/.config/file`00:10
mateyty i will report back00:10
naccmatey: afaict, you need to disable both "Intel protocol support" and "Intel AG6XX protocol support" for BT_INTEL to be off.00:13
naccmatey: right, it's not a visible simple in menuconfig00:13
naccmatey: so you'll first need to disable the two I just said (BT_HCIUART_INTEL and BT_HCIUART_AG6XX) and then disable BT_INTEL (and then run `make oldconfig` to ensure the changes took)00:13
mateyIntel AG6XX? So i cannot menuconfig?00:14
naccmatey: you could try with menuconfig for those two symbols00:14
naccmatey: i'm not usre it will automatically disable BT_INTEL just because it's not been 'selected', though00:14

ohcrudohcrudohcrI have an SSD with an enrypted installation of Ubuntu 16.04. Being stupid I deleted a 513MB parition at the begining of the drive and it wiped out the reference? to the LVM with my data on it. Please tell me this can be fixed. I don't care about the install I can redo I just want the data00:19
ohcrudohcrudohcrI'm running sudo gpart /dev/sda now and so far see Possible partition(Linux ext2), size(487mb), offset(1mb). How can I access the LVM? I had no idea the 513MB parition would affect the encrypted LVM.00:21
frostschutzohcrudohcrudohcr, if it's just a problem with the partition table, testdisk might help you. can you show output of `sudo file -s /dev/sda*`?00:22
YankDownUnderohcrudohcrudohcr: Might get some hints here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/588530/recover-the-directory-structure-of-a-lost-lvm-logical-volume00:22
mateyis xconfig more detailed than menuconfig?00:23
frostschutzohcrudohcrudohcr, deleting one partition should not affect the others, unless you decide to move/resize the other partitions as well (as gparted might do)00:23

naccmatey: yes, you need to comment it out, but you also need to comment out the symbols that select it, which I already told you00:48
naccsetuid: i believe for a local iso image, you'd use --cdrom? or, you'd need to, as you said, put the preseed on the iso (really in the initrd of the iso, iirc)00:49

theskillwithinwell im going to be searching my whole house for an old usb stick now =\03:29
Jerry_SmoothAny suggestions for a terminal browser?03:29
theskillwithinwait....... why am i not using the iso, why am i using this (http://www.etcg.pw/#vid  bootable drive maker for mac) to make the usb boot install03:30
theskillwithinshould i just forget about that and just use the iso?03:30
theskillwithinkinda odd tho cuz then why does the other one exist03:30
plop_its_ellieyou can just use dd to make a bootable usb stick with the iso03:31
theskillwithinoh maybe it just does the same thing as an iso burn, but just does it for you03:31
theskillwithinhmm ubuntu website has a seperate page for download for developers, so I would want that iso then?03:32
reisioit can03:32
reisiotheskillwithin: link?03:32
theskillwithinoh its prob the same thing03:33
theskillwithinbut I am a web dev, moving from osx to ubuntu so developer setup would be important to me03:33
reisioI would guess it's the same thing03:34
reisioat most, however, even if it weren't, it would merely have certain slightly different preinstalled packages and preconfigurations03:34
reisionothing you couldn't get to from any other version03:34
theskillwithinalso i noticed the thing i was using was downloading v 16, but the download on ubuntu is v 1403:35
theskillwithin14 is stable, but meh iv been known to embrace the cutting edge so might want 1603:35
reisioif you're doing a new install, I'd go with 16, it's the latest major version03:35
reisiono, Ubuntu has no stable branch03:35
reisio14 is older03:35
theskillwithinoohhh i just noticed it is using 1603:35
theskillwithinso on osx, I use vagrant to run my websites like magento so i can develop locally.   ubuntu this might be more native maybe should use docker?03:36
ucijp14 is mostly security updates at this point03:36
reisiotheskillwithin: mostly personal preference I'd say03:37
reisiotheskillwithin: I doubt you'd want to use hardware virtualization with either03:37
theskillwithinahhh it all makes sense now I was prob using ubuntu 14 for my magento2 web servers and got mixed up about the versions03:37
reisiotheskillwithin: both can use non-hardware virtualization stuff, though03:37
Jordan-EVOIve locked my self out my VPS xD03:37
reisioJordan-EVO: gj03:38
theskillwithinI think i used debian for magento 1, and before that centos03:38
Jordan-EVOI was following this then my ftp lost connection then i rebooted the server now i cant connect03:38
theskillwithinreisio very interesting, so maybe an added bonus here, as a web dev,  well I could just setup the web server locally on my system purley without vagrant?03:39
theskillwithinbut well vagrant I kinda got to fool around with diff configurations and got to test configs before making changes on live, here all my changes would effect every site using either nginx or apache03:40
theskillwithini just have no idea03:40
reisiotheskillwithin: oh yeah; vagrant and docker are for the most part, as I understand it, frontends & glue for other more specific/rudimentary/simple technologies03:40
theskillwithinlinux services should be a required class in college03:40
reisiowould be good if they exposed childrens to Unix systems03:40
theskillwithinif I was in charge I think every school would be at risk of swithcing everything to linux03:41
reisiobut I don't suppose the financial lobbying of some OS companies would stand for it much :p03:41
reisioso anyway, if you're content with vagrant, no harm sticking to it; just avoid hardware virtualization with it03:41
theskillwithinI would also send a secret agent to film kim jun in north korea wth (graphic details left out here)03:41
theskillwithinI love vagrant, but... takes up a lot of space... also initial load takes a long time.03:41
theskillwithinso my default would be to stick with that to be on the safe side03:42
theskillwithinhardware virtualization?     i just use it with cli.  but idk what virtualization is03:42

plop_its_ellietheskillwithin, theres discord and mumble03:49
plop_its_ellieas well03:49
reisiotheskillwithin: vagrant (et al.) cover lots of "virtual" options; you wouldn't want the entirely unnecessary overhead (resources & space) of hardware virtualization, but some of the other approaches would be fine (lxc)03:50
theskillwithinbefore that it was teamspeak03:50
theskillwithindiscord is the most recent one03:50

reisiotheskillwithin: 'amd64' is the original (public) name for x86_6404:05
reisioyou might well want a 64-bit x86 image for mac specifically, though, if there are such things04:05
reisioI'm afraid I don't follow mac media much04:05
reisiomost likely any x86_64 image will technically suffice04:06
reisiobut presumably the reason mac-specific images exist is because they are preconfigured to be more ideal for mac hardware04:06

n3ss_ubuntu being the special snowflake takes about 2 minutes to resolve anything local after i first try to acecss it, if i'm lucky04:10
reisiotheskillwithin: think +mac images may have been discontinued for being unnecessary (oblivious to plain amd64), but don't quote me on that04:11
n3ss_i configured /etc/nsswitch.conf to use DNS first but it hasn't changed the behavior at all.04:12
reision3ss_: not that here isn't fine, but #ubuntu-server, or even ##linux might have a higher percentage of users more familiar with such things04:13
n3ss_it's an ubuntu specific thing, i may try ubuntu-server but i am running on a desktop04:13
reision3ss_: yes certainly04:16
n3ss_i think i'm thinking of dnsmasq04:16

ubottuoem: Please elaborate; your question or issue may not seem clear or detailed enough for people to help you. Please give more detailed information; for example, we might need errors, steps, relevant configuration files, Ubuntu version, and hardware information. Use a !pastebin to avoid flooding the channel.05:24
oemI am in 16.04 I plug in my optical cable, but there is no sound. pavucontrol sees it, but no sound05:27
YankDownUnderoem: What desktop are you using - the default Unity, or KDE or Cinnamon or Mate?05:28
YankDownUnderoem: In the lower right hand corner of the screeen - in the system tray, you should see an icon that is for sound/audio - do you see that?05:29
YankDownUnderoem: And you've double-checked all of the "levels" for the different devices in that "control", yes?05:31
anddamI'm trying to run zerofree on a ubuntu vbox guest, I started single mode and tried to remount root in ro but keep getting "/ is busy", I checked http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/42015/mount-is-busy-when-trying-to-mount-as-read-only-so-that-i-can-run-zerofree the lsof suggested command only shows dhclient while fuser shows a lot of commands05:31

Norbinokey, always on top was checked. lol05:42
Norbindidn't know that's an option even05:42

nanotakaits free and available is different05:44
Norbinnanotaka: remember that all of your buff/cache is in a way also free.05:45
anddamand that free means basically "wasted"05:45
nanotakaoh, i understand. So rather just look at buff/cache in the future. Thank you guys very much05:46
lotuspsychjenanotaka: and with 16gig ram on ubuntu, you should not worry for nothing05:46

quizzy85Blue1: cause this oldie has only 105:49
nanotakaits a TuxeDo. So other than that, it doesnt have a dedicated GPU and compiling drivers took some time.05:49

stephen_abcan you give me the script? Blue106:00
kali_yugaI'm thinking about switching from kde06:01
Blue1kali_yuga: I have only had 1 issue with it -- it won't perform lspci and therefore can't install chromium - but it's fine otherwise.06:01

stephen_abthanks mate06:02
Blue1stephen_ab: comment/uncomment what you need/dont need -- welcome06:02
YankDownUnderkali_yuga: "Mate" is quite all right - minimal - but has heaps of bells and whistles, too...not as much "eye candy" as KDE, but hey, it's all about what you feel the most comfortable with. There were issues earlier this year with the "panel" taking up heaps too much memory, but all of that has been fixed in upgrades. You can check in #ubuntu-mate channel for more information or for answers to questions...06:04
Blue1YankDownUnder: I do NOT like the new KDE --06:04
Blue1Yes we can take offtopic if you would like.06:05
YankDownUnderBlue1: Fair enough...and you've added the "backports" to get the latest Plasma 5.6.4 as well?06:05
stephen_aband it sucks06:05
stephen_abi have 5.6.506:05
Blue1my biggest issues is that any programme I manually install, like chrome, I must go to /usr/share/applications -- copy the .desktop to ~/Desktop/ --06:06
hateballWhat issues with Plasma are you having that can't be solved?06:06
Blue1hateball: see above -- some programmes it won't let me add to the desktop -- I can only add it to favourites06:06
Blue1like gedit....and the nice little screen it used to have where all the stuff you saved to the desktop -- is now gone - there isn't much distinction between kde and xubuntu now.06:07
hateballI am not sure I follow06:08
hateballAre you using Desktop view or Folder view, to start with?06:08
Blue1hateball: folder06:08
hateballHands off that then :p06:08
Blue1otherwise -- I have an empty desktop06:08
hateballI use desktop view with a folder plasmoid that displays ~/Desktop06:09
kali_yugaI would like to do this http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2014/08/install-mate-desktop-ubuntu-14-04-lts but I don't like adding repos actually06:09
hateballBlue1: The point with Desktop view is to add plasmoids, such as folder view, or various launchers06:09
Blue1kali_yuga: you should be able to download mate -- hang on a sec06:09
Blue1hateball: yup...06:09
kali_yugaI have 14.04 I know it wasn't supported back then06:09

Blue1kali_yuga: you have mate, you have a re-install script - what more do you want?06:13
kali_yugaBlue1: I don't have an rapberry pi ^^06:13

kali_yugaall my files are stored on my external. I can reinstall and put my files back on easily. but I need to download all my games from steam a.e again06:17
Blue1Yup...I don't do games -- Actually if they made a 4Meg video card -- I'd be peachy06:18
Blue1except for streaming hidef stuff now.  otherwise -- that would work fine -- I don't do any gaming.06:18
kali_yugame neither lately06:19
Blue1I wonder if I still have any old pci video cards?  egads, I am old.06:19
kali_yugayour just using your raspberry pi?06:20
Blue1kali_yuga: yup -- again more video than I need -- I can't stream will with ubuntumate -- so I may go to kodi and see if I can get the mythtv frontend to work.06:21

Blue1kali_yuga: try one - I think you'd be surprised06:23
hateballtho this is quite !ot06:23
kali_yugawell if you don't do gaming they're actually pretty neat. they have dual or quad core i think.06:23

pixel6692or apt-<>06:34
pixel6692hateball: problem is I dont see it nowhere at autostart06:34
ptlnever mind, found it via google/askubuntu06:35
ptlbut the more pressing matter to me is the unity-like desktop in KDE. Anyone?:06:35
=== zz_capri is now known as capri
CantankRuspixel6692: ubuntu-desktop is a metapackage so all your removing is a list of dependencies...no actual packages06:35
hateballCantankRus: problem is that it sets things to a manual state, so apt-get autoremove *will*06:36
hateballpixel6692: could always find the binary and chmod -x :p06:37
* hateball uses Plasma, does not know of Unity and its ways :/06:37
pixel6692will try this :)06:38
ptlI am quite addicted to the Unity paradigm but I use mostly KDE software. So it would be somewhat advantageous for me to change06:38
ptlyakuake, kdenlive, k3b, dolphin, rekonq, besides many qt-based apps06:38
ptlpixel6692: I despise update-manager, usually I just use divert-dpkg to change its executable to /dev/null but lately Ubuntu has changed its way of notifying updates and everytime I do an apt-get update and the likes it annoys me notifying there are updates.06:41
ptlI mean dpkg-divert06:41
pixel6692I removed execute flag, so I will see :)06:41
ptlthere is a new framework in place to take care of updates06:42
ptllayer over layer over layer06:42
pixel6692which one?06:43
ptlI do not recall. I found it out by fiddling with update-notifier and update-manager trying to disable the annoying notifications06:45
pijushis there any easy way to set the system audio at 24bit, 192000 hz06:46
ptlpijush: you mean to resample every sound going to the soundcard so that it physically outputs as 24 bit, 192 kHz, or setting a default sound quality for all sound software?06:49

=== ilikepaitingfrie is now known as quizzy85
pijushi'm not a sound expert, but i can say the feel the difference between normal dvd quality sound and studio(24bit,192) quality. I normally use studio quality in windows, so i want to configure the same for ubuntu as primary pc for web dev.06:55
ptlpijush: is that me?07:01
hateballpijush: Are you looking to upsample things or what are you asking?07:01
hateballAudio will be played in whatever bitrates and such it contains07:01
pijush@hateball yes upsample if is the right word. u may notice in the GUI of realtek typically win windows there is a format tab, where you can set the audio format.07:06
hateballWell you can change default rates for pulseaudio, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio/Troubleshooting#Setting_the_sound_card.27s_sampling_rate_into_PulseAudio_configuration_.283.2F5.2907:06

Kiritohttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/Mir/Spec#Mir_on_HW_Supported_By_Closed_Source_Drivers is this still accurate? Being that Nvidia has released drivers with support for DRM/KMS now, I imagine Nvidia should be usable with Mir (as well as Wayland in that regard), shouldn't it?07:34
Kiritohttp://www.nvidia.com/download/driverresults.aspx/100577/en-us ah, seems so indeed, interestingg07:35
KiritoSeems support was added for it in theory, not sure if there are actual libraries available to hook into it yet07:39
KiritoFor Wayland there seems to be, not seeing anything on Mir yet07:40
KiritoWell Mir still seems to be in the very early stages of development anyhow, maybe I shouldn't get too excited yet. Though I'm greatly looking forward to the day Xorg can be cast into oblivion07:44
MrokiiHello. I have a problem that may or may not be related to Kubuntu specifically, but just in case I wanted to ask here. The problem is, after a fresh install of Kubuntu 16.04, I can't use German Umlauts anymore. When I try to type them in the terminal, they are printed as "??" and I can't open or save files with names that contain German Umlauts with LibreOffice (and presumably other apps as well, haven't07:46

ubottuTo set up and configure your locales, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LocaleConf and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Locale/07:48

ARUCALIs Ubuntu working on a Free Software Replacement Personal assistant similar to Apple's Siri or Microsoft Cortana?08:28
YankDownUnderARUCAL: Since the inception of "linux", I would tend to argue that most of the folks drawn to linux would prefer to "do it themselves", hmm.08:30
ARUCALSo do you know of anyone doing that?08:31
YankDownUnderARUCAL: I think you may have misunderstood what I was getting at.08:31
ARUCALBecause I think that we (The Free Software Community) need to have alluring things of our own for people who are using proprietary software to make the switch.08:32
ARUCALIt would be cool if we could build a decentralised personal assistant08:33
YankDownUnderARUCAL: Here's a great analogy of the whole thing: An Apple person buys a house. A Microsoft person rents/leases a house. A Linux user builds his house using his own plans with his own materials. Does that make sense?08:34
ARUCALBut also The Free Software Community shares houses08:35
YankDownUnderARUCAL: Therefore, it'll happen when "AI" is dependent on complete decentralisation - when you can run your own "AI" in your own home, using your own machines, your own hardware, your own OSS/EFF software. :)08:35
ARUCALthat would be cool08:35

k1lisnt this about creating a ubuntu usb?08:52
theskillwithini booted and chose every option in refind08:53

ujjwal09And now I am copying my data from an external hard disk to Ubantu09:02

ujjwal09Please help me09:03
archmonkeyhi, how do I auto-mount an internal hdd that usually starts unmounted on boot?09:04
LuiXhow you doing folks. I have an encrypted partition which caja stopped promtping for the passphrase. it just mounts it as if it was a normal partition. any ideas?09:04
LuiXarchmonkey, you can use the disk manager09:05
hateballujjwal09: transfer speed will vary depending on the filesystem, as well if there are many smaller files instead of large ones etc09:05
* theskillwithin starts googling frantically09:05
ujjwal09Actually the files are videos of 100-200 MB size09:05
theskillwithindang that was a smart answer09:05
ujjwal09Are they small enough to slow down the speed?09:06
hateballujjwal09: No, I was thinking rather in the <100kb range09:07
hateballujjwal09: Is the external drive NTFS? Can you open the system monitor and see if your CPU is choking?09:07

LeMikehello. I am having a hard time with fsck. The drive is not broken but has some bad blocks. Ubuntu doesn't start in it's GUI anymore. So I take fsck / "fsck.ext4" and use the "-c" option to write bad blocks to a list. fsck yells at me that it cant read the next block. Why? I thought it will put it on the badblock list. What am I doing wrong here?10:12

pseudducasse: are there any "tips" when doing a reinstall. Such as getting a list of explicitly installed packages which I might use to speed up a new install ?12:06
ducassepseud: you can use apt-mark to show packages marked as manually installed, but you might need to trim the list.12:07
bobslaw-skillwitsuccess got ubuntu installed whooo12:07
bobslaw-skillwitcan't seem to install irc tho haha12:08
HoloIRCUser4hateball: arm used in mobiles and raspberry pi as well12:08
bobslaw-skillwitI used textual on ios.    on ubunto  sudo apt-get install xchat      NOPE FAILE12:09
pseudducasse: cool - I knew a variation of that trick. Just wanted to ensure there wasn't some obvious set of steps which I didn't know about :) But thanks12:09
HoloIRCUser4Is Ubuntu supported with raspberry pi.  Any version12:09
bobslaw-skillwitthat was my 3rd attempt to install an irc program on my ubuntu =[12:09
BlackDalektoday's ubuntu update killed my wifi. I'm using 15.10 Wily. I get no option to enable or disable wifi. It simply does not show up in the Unity network menu any more. The driver still shows up in additional drivers as being active.12:10
ioriabobslaw-skillwit, no xchat on 16.04, try hexchat12:10
bobslaw-skillwitand it was like packack xchat has no candidate, well google told me to do it12:10
bobslaw-skillwitok will try that12:10
ioria!info xchat12:10
ubottuPackage xchat does not exist in xenial12:10
ioria!info hexchat12:10
ubottuhexchat (source: hexchat): IRC client for X based on X-Chat 2. In component universe, is optional. Version 2.10.2-1ubuntu3 (xenial), package size 330 kB, installed size 932 kB12:10
HoloIRCUser4BlackDalek: service restart NetworkManager12:10
bobslaw-skillwitI have used xchat before,  textual was much nicer on ios =\12:10
HoloIRCUser4Or service stop NetworkManager and then with start option12:12
Adiebobslaw-skillwit, textual is probably the nicest GUI IRC client that exists :^)12:12
Adiebut for windows and linux, we're stuck with hexchat12:12
Adieoh well12:12
HoloIRCUser4I'm connected from android12:13

Luka00Hello people I try to see grub menu Ubuntu 16.04, I changed GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=10 but not happen12:15
Luka00What I forget?12:16
bobslaw-skillwitdang cmd+c and cmd+v is no longer copy and paste in ubuntu?12:16
ioriaLuka00, you have to comment that line with #12:16
HoloIRCUser4Hmm but it's not for zero version12:16
minimecLuka00: 'sudo update-grub' after such kind of changes... <-- What did i forget...12:16
Luka00ok only that line?12:16
Luka00i have done that minimec12:16
ioriaLuka00, yes, and sudo update-grub12:17
Luka00I try and shift I think12:17
bobslaw-skillwitreally did not expect copy and paste keyboard shortcuts to not work in ubuntu =\12:17
HoloIRCUser4Luka00: which file is this?12:18
Luka00what file?12:19
HoloIRCUser4Ook I asked some relevant question before with this file12:20
ne8cflhello I installed ubuntu but i can't get my nvidia drivers working. if I do a modprobe it tells me modprobe: "FATAL: Module nvidia not found." I installed the nvidia driver via sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 help pls12:21
Luka00I joined recently I have not read what you asked12:22
bobslaw-skillwiti guess ill haveto include that customization in my blog article on how to switch to ubuntu as a web dev, gotta set the basic copy and paste shortcuts.  hope my sublime text settings work tho12:22
Luka00I try I see you late :)12:22
ne8cflwhy aren12:22
ne8cfl't they working?12:22
ioriane8cfl,  can you paste   sudo lshw -c Video ?12:23
ne8cflthey have worked before. but now after a fresh install nvidia drivers doesn't seem to work anymore12:23
bobslaw-skillwitI can't paste at all apparently unless I right click12:24
gycklarn-bobslaw-skillwit, Are you in a terminal? Wait, are you using a mac?12:25
ne8cflyes here : http://paste.ubuntu.com/19487127/12:25
ne8cflioria: http://paste.ubuntu.com/19487127/12:25
bobslaw-skillwitI am now on my mac laptop as I gave up on ubuntu setup on irc and etc kind of laborious without copy and paste lol12:25
bobslaw-skillwitthis isnt even my main nick12:26
ioriane8cfl,   dmesg | grep -i chipset12:26
gycklarn-In a terminal (On a non-mac keyboard) you have to press ctrl+shift+v to paste12:26
gycklarn-No idea how it works on mac12:26
ne8cflioria: doesn't say anything12:26
bobslaw-skillwitoh ok one sec lemme try that on my desktop12:27
ioriane8cfl,   try again, please12:27
ne8cflioria:: I did it just goes into next line :(12:27
Luka00It worked grub menu and I chose the kernel 4.4.31 ow how do I use it more instead of kernel 4.7 rc3?12:28
freedrullhi i accidentally expired the main user account (with usermod -e) and i can't login as root (the root account is locked by default) is there anything i can do?12:28
bobslaw-skillwityep gycklarn- that worked to paste in ubuntu.... dang that is super laborious 3 keystrokes almost awkwardly placed compared to two on osx... idk12:28
ioriane8cfl,   16.04 ?12:28
ne8cflioria: no 14.0412:28
gycklarn-bobslaw-skillwit, The thing is, ctrl+c and ctrl+v does other things in the terminal. ctrl+c for example is used to cancel an ongoing command12:29
Luka00I would not select every time the kernel to use but still have the 4.04.31 as default12:29
ioriane8cfl,   have you added ppa ?12:29
ne8cflne8cfl: kernel version 3.13-0.9212:29
ne8cflioria: No I just installed12:29
ne8cflAnd updated12:29
ioriane8cfl,   can you paste ubuntu-drivers list   ?12:29
bobslaw-skillwitosx  its cmd+c  cmd+v12:29
ne8cflnext I wanted are the nvidia drivers12:30
bobslaw-skillwitthose dont work in ubuntu12:30
ne8cflioria: ubuntu drivers list?12:30
gycklarn-Have you installed Ubuntu on your mac, bobslaw-skillwit?12:30
ioriane8cfl,    ubuntu-drivers list12:30
bobslaw-skillwitalso yea i do often use that ctrl+c on osx to cancel, very useful12:31
gycklarn-bobslaw-skillwit, I have little-to-zero experience with mac computers, but I would assume Ubuntu is not "supposed" to be used on a mac, which is why the keyboard shortcuts are different12:31
ne8cflioria: here http://paste.ubuntu.com/19487657/12:31
ne8cflI installed 352.63 like before12:32
bobslaw-skillwitok but srsly? 3 keys needed to copy and paste?12:32
olivia_excuse me, is the channil loged?12:32
ioriane8cfl,    you update the kernel recently ...12:32
hateballolivia_: Yes12:32
ne8cflIt's like everytime I install ubuntu, it gets buggier and buggier12:32
bobslaw-skillwitill be customizing it to use 2 keys I think12:32
olivia_hateball: do you know wher12:32
ubottuOfficial channel logs can be found at https://irclogs.ubuntu.com/ . LoCo channels are now logged there too. Meeting logs from meetingology at http://ubottu.com/meetingology/logs/12:33
ioriane8cfl,    nouveau was working right ?12:33
olivia_hateball: thank u <312:33
bobslaw-skillwiteven when I used windows (hated it) did not need 3 keys to copy and paste12:33
ne8cflioria: yes nouveau is functioning correctly12:33
bobslaw-skillwitthis kind of thru me off... a curve ball I did not expect12:33
ne8cflI think I still run it right now12:34
ioriane8cfl,    no12:34
ne8cflioria: so what is wrong with my nvidia drivers ? you got a clue?12:34
ioriane8cfl,    can you paste /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?12:34
ioriane8cfl,    paste the file, then we try to purge nvidia and reinstall fron Additional Drivers12:35
bobslaw-skillwitlol as a web dev keyboard  shortcuts are insanely useful, might have to switch back to osx where you only need 2 keys to copy and paste =[12:36
bobslaw-skillwitI memorized prob 50 keyboard shortcuts in sublime text12:36
ne8cflioria: thats a big chunk of text though http://paste.ubuntu.com/19488114/12:37
ioriane8cfl,   oh... dod you use encryption ?12:37
ne8cflioria: Yes I did12:38
ducassebobslaw-skillwit: tip: look into the difference between the x selection buffer and the clipboard, and programs like clipit12:38
ne8cflioria: before it was working to with the nvidia drivers12:38
ioriane8cfl,   before .. what ?12:38
bobslaw-skillwitducasse ok I will write that down in my notes12:39
ducassebobslaw-skillwit: makes life _a lot_ easier12:39
ne8cflioria: before I reinstalled my pc12:39
bobslaw-skillwitdoes it make it more consistant12:39
ioriane8cfl,  fresh install ? don't tell me ...12:39
ne8cflioria: thats the funny thing it's the second time. So what am I doing wrong here exactly?12:40
=== DeerGod is now known as precise
ioriane8cfl,   you're using 3.13 very old kernel ... so you reinstalled from an old medium ,,, but this is not the point12:42
ne8cflI need make a clean format. reinstalling doesn't do it somehow. problems persist and new ones appear12:42
ne8cflioria: I need this kernel. The 3.13 is the only kernel that works well with my pc12:42
BluesKajhowdy folks12:43
ne8cflioria: once I had 4.x and it wouldn't boot up12:43
ducassebobslaw-skillwit: when you learn to use it, yes12:43
ioriane8cfl,   ok...   now, what you got a blank screen or you can login ?12:43
ne8cflioria: no no, everything's fine besides the nvidia drivers12:43
bobslaw-skillwitim not sure if that follows the definition of constant12:43
ne8cflbut I installed newer kernels from upgrading and they don't work. only kernel I got a positive result is the kernel i'm using12:45
bobslaw-skillwitits consistent then if you learn how do to the same task using a different method in diff programs12:45
ioriane8cfl,    ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?12:45
ne8cflls: cannot access /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory12:46
ne8cflI looked there is really nothing in that folder12:46
ne8cfli mean no xorg.conf12:47
ioriane8cfl,    dpkg -l | grep nvidia-12:47
ducassebobslaw-skillwit: look it up. i mark text with the left button, and paste with the middle or shift+insert. works everywhere.12:47
ne8cflioria: http://paste.ubuntu.com/19489071/12:47
sveinseooi, why has the handy Ctrl-Alt-backspace function been taken away?12:48
bobslaw-skillwitshift+insert? that requires two hands to hit those buttons?12:48
sveinseuhm, yeah, this function is not something you do every day. In fact, as seldom as possible actually12:49
ioriane8cfl,    we can try 2 things . 1) purge nvidia and reinstall from Gui,   or 2) try to configure Xorg (sudo nvidia-xconfig) and run sudo update-initramfs -u12:49
ducassebobslaw-skillwit: there are two shift keys.12:50
bobslaw-skillwitthats true12:50
bobslaw-skillwitok so now I have to learn completely diff shortcuts now, dang12:50
ne8cflioria: I installed from Gui before this install. over additional drivers. same thing happens. that's why I did it manually the second time.12:50
bobslaw-skillwitosx shortcuts were more intuitive12:51
sveinsebobslaw-skillwit: eh, are we talking about the same thing here?12:51
ducassebobslaw-skillwit: look at clipit, it synchronises the two tways to do things, so you can use whatever you want.12:51
ioriane8cfl,  sudo nvidia-xconfig     and     sudo update-initramfs -u12:52
ne8cflI think I'm going to format everything again. install without inet connetion. and install the nvidia drivers first before anything12:52
transhumanducasse I12:52
ne8cflioria: sudo: nvidia-xconfig: command not found12:52
* bobslaw-skillwit writes down clipit12:53
ducassesveinse: 'setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp' or enable it in an xorg.conf snippet.12:53
transhumanducasse, I am able to start a new session under a different user using ctl+Alt+L...I setup an anonymous user (I could also use a proxy) but lots of proxys are blocked from such things12:53
sveinseducasse: Yes, I'12:53
transhumanducasse, but i think its anonymous enough under a differnet session for googles indexing purposes12:54
bobslaw-skillwitthis is way more involved than I thought it would be, i mean I ssh into linux webservers all day but did not expect using ubuntu desktop to be so forgient.  I wish I could just make it more like osx lol12:54
sveinseducasse: Yes, I've done that. But my question was why it as taken away in the first place12:54
ne8cflMy pc is not that good with linux anyway, cuz of nvidia-prime, uefi and secure boot stuff all there12:54
ducassebobslaw-skillwit: thank god it's not, imo.12:54
ducassesveinse: because most users didn't know about it, hit it accidentally and killed their entire session, i would guess. easy enough to enable, though.12:56
bobslaw-skillwitwell shortcut keys are very imporatant as a web dev12:56
HoloIRCUser4quit the server12:57

bobslaw-skillwitlol I was told the ux/ui was easy and CONSISTENT.   lies lies lies12:59
ducassebobslaw-skillwit: i've never had an issue with copy/paste. you can't expect to switch os and keep exactly the same workflow/habits.12:59
bobslaw-skillwitwindows and macos have very similar shortcuts for those, almost the same really13:00
bobslaw-skillwit2 keys13:00
bobslaw-skillwitnot 313:00
ne8cflwell i'm going to reinstall again give it another try :(13:00
ikoniayou're not using those13:00

bobslaw-skillwiti mean i know of this button but what are you saying it does13:02
curlyearsNo Joy )-:13:03

ducasseSnoopyDgg: cron or systemd timers13:04
SnoopyDggducasse, I'm on ubuntu 14.04 which one is better?13:05
ducasseSnoopyDgg: then you only have cron13:05
bobslaw-skillwitthat sounds so easy too, no need to even copy13:06
curlyearsit went so far as to inform me that it was "checking the DMI list . . . . . . . . . . .   <12 dots  and then hung for oever 2 hours.  I finall;y just turned it off again13:07
bobslaw-skillwiti get hungover for way more than 2 hours, not often then thankfully13:08

curlyearsso, in despairation, I tried installing 14.04.4 again.  f few seconds after choosibng "install ubuntu" the screen goes blank, and about 10 seconds later, at the very top of the screen, I see "file not found: MkListRT not found13:09
curlyearsand then the instal *SEEMS&* to go successfully (no errors or warnings)   I restart AGAIN.  Doe it boot?   NO, it hands me the "checking DMI list and 12 dots libne and hangs!  I am back under LiveDVD agaion   )-:13:12
curlyearscan anyone explain any of this (Oh, one more thing, I ran the "check disk for errors" thing on the installer startup, it scanned the 14.04.4 DVD and pronounced it error free)13:14

DarthMoewoh lol, server doesnt usually have gui :D13:23
alexbligh1Odd_Bloke, nope, but I think I now know what it is (roughly). /boot is full as it's been autoupdating somehow, but not rebooted, and that's left it with partially configured kernel packages, so its confused.13:23

MonkeyDusttherealtbe  12.10 is long dead14:38
displaymanno support bro14:38
therealtbeI don't see anything in /etc/network/interfaces14:38
therealtbeso how is it getting this static IP address14:38
MonkeyDusttherealtbe  upgrade first, then ask ag&ain14:38
therealtbewhere is networking configured in 12.04 ?14:38
therealtbewhere, other than /etc/network/interfaces, has networking ever been configured?14:39
therealtbethere is no dhclient running, and no network manager, and /etc/network/interfaces only contains the loopback, so how does it get its IP address?14:40
displaymanare there any other channels i should try for help with this graphics issue? I'm lost here14:41
therealtbeif it's not running dhclient, and there is only loopback in /etc/network/interfaces, how is eth0 getting its IP address ?14:42
curlyearstherealtbe: PAY ATTENTION:  you have been advised several times nowq that Ubuntu 12 is NO LONGER SUPPORTED.  You will need to upgrade to a newer version (16.04 is the latest) and try again.  If you still have troubles, come back and ask here.14:48
displaymanI don't think I've ever seen this channel so dead14:48
displaymancurlyears: the topic says 12.04 is allowed14:48
curlyearsit is awfull;y quiet for 1934 Users14:49
MonkeyDustcurlyears  12.04 is supported until 201714:49
Pici12.10 is long gone though.14:49
curlyearsMonkeyDust  mea culpa14:49
displaymanand to be fair I'm on 16.04 and no one can help me either :D14:50
curlyearsdisplayman:  the problm,e for 16.04 is that it is fairly new, and not as many knowledgabler users exist, as do for earlier versions.  There are all new bugs which may not as yet have been resolved.14:51
irinixwhy would 12.04 be supported but not 12.10 if 12.04 is older than 12.10?14:52
displaymanyeah so we're both SOL...14:52
MonkeyDustirinix  because 12.04 is LTS14:52
irinixcurlyears, I would blame Canonical's 6 month release cycle for that14:52
curlyears12.04 is an LTS (Long Term Support) module.  10.10 is n ot LTS.14:52
irinixso *.04 is LTS, and *.10 isn't.  kk14:53
therealtbewhy are you guys being so rude ?14:53
therealtbeif 12.04 is supported then tell me how networking is configured in 12.0414:53
irinixtherealtbe, what have you tried?14:54
therealtbeI checked ps -ef  to look for dhclient, and I don't see it, or network manager14:54
therealtbeI looked in /etc/network/interfaces and only the loopback is configured14:54
therealtbebut somehow, eth0 gets it's IP address,  AND /etc/resolv.conf is overwritten on reboot14:54
therealtbeI checked in rc.local and a few other places to see if someone hardcoded the commands14:55
irinixwhat does ifconfig tell you?14:55
therealtbeumm, the IP address?14:55
therealtbeand the netmask...14:55
irinixso, what is the problem?14:55
therealtbeI fixed /etc/resolv.conf  and rebooted it and it was overwritten with incorrect information14:56
therealtbeUsually I have seen this when it is dhcp and it receives the dns server along with the dhcp lease14:56
therealtbeSo I went to look to see if this is configured for static or DHCP.   I don't see either.  I don't see any config for eth0 anywhere14:56
Myrttiirinix, curlyears: not every .04 is an LTS. Even years are.14:57
irinixtherealtbe, it might not be *exactly* your problem but it seems close, have you tried this http://askubuntu.com/questions/394217/my-eth0-has-gone-and-i-dont-have-internet-and-network-connection ?14:58

nacccurlyears: in the live DVD, does the installed system (that fails to boot)'s disk look like it's partitioned correctly? (UEFI partitoin, etc)16:41
curlyearsI have to tell you, I feel damned foolish, being a retired software eningeer in this position.   I feel positively STUPID16:42
Bashing-omcurlyears: Might be instructive to look at the partitioning on the hard drive(s): 'sudo parted -l' .16:42
curlyearsnacc:  yes16:42
nacccurlyears: well, DMI detection isn't a software (traditional) issue; it's a hardware or BIOS one, if it's failing16:42
nacccurlyears: when you boot normally, your BIOS boot order is correct, etc.? Not trying to be insulting, just trying to think of things that might be going wrong16:43
nacccurlyears: could also be lose connectors (you've been doing some hw chnages it sounds like), it can be bios corruption (consider reset/reflash), can be hdd failure(s)16:44
curlyearsOK.  I need some assistance installing a screen capture/upload utility.  I havent done so in months, and I don't remember how16:45

curlyearsso, did anybody look at the dmidecode I posted, and can you offer an opinion?17:13
nacccurlyears: couple of questions come to mind; i'm not an expert, but my UEFI system at home as the small efi partition marked as 'boot, esp'17:14
nacccurlyears: not just 'boot'17:14
nacccurlyears: quick glance at man-page says esp is what indicates it's EFI (but not sure it's 100% necessary)17:14
nacccurlyears: some people have used a tool called the 'super grub rescue' disk to boot from dvd, find the grub installation on their hdd and then boot. That would at least verify the installation worked correctly.17:15
curlyearswhere dpo I gte "super grub rescue?"   apt-get?17:18
ActionParsnipcurlyears: if you want to reinstall GRUB then OMGUbuntu has a guide named "Sticking it to GRUB" which can help17:20
nacccurlyears: i found it quickly by googling, it's an iso image (afaict)17:21
curlyearsI prefer nacc's suggestion, thanks, ActionParsnip.  I tend to have considerable trepidation and discomfort in messing with grub directly, I simply don't know enough about it17:21
ActionParsnipIm not a fan of messing with Grub, I know some tricks but in general its fine. I dont use UEFI or secureboot or encryption or anything like that.17:21
nacccurlyears: you could also try the boot repair method i suggsted https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair17:22

ikoniadmi error .... = hardware error17:25
naccikonia: agreed; although apparently efi errors are also indicated by some bios as dmi errors (same time in post?)17:26
ikoniayou will not be able to fix it with software17:26
curlyearsnacc:  because A) the computer flat out wouldn't work right without it, and because I discopvered whebn I found the EFI selection option in Advanced BIOS Settings, that the BIOS requires it for >2TB disks (or so it claims)17:26
ikonianacc: put it into legacy mode to test if possible, but it's going to be a hardware error17:26
naccikonia: good idea; but curlyears says they can't (due to the above disk issue)17:26
ikoniaI doubt that17:26
ikoniaeven if it is a disk issue not using efi - you should still get a failed boot attempt17:27
* nacc agrees, UEFI shouldn't change (aiui) the disk size supported, unless it's a really poorly written bios17:27
ikoniarather than a dmi error17:27

tortibthe actual files are not being copied over, I logged in with the username and password for that CIFS share18:09
daxvarikonniemi: in my experience it decreased I/O throughput notably for non-typical workloads involving lots of moving around of files. it's not a problem for typical workloads. it may be more noticible for CPUs that don't support crypto instructions, I'm not sure18:10

tatertotsI'm using 14.04 and made changes to '/usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-unity-greeter.conf' to get rid of guest and enable manual log in, however the system shows previously logged in users at the log in screen after a reboot, i'd rather not have this displayed18:13
tatertotsi'd rather not see the previously logged in usernames, how do i alter this behavior18:14
torpeti am experiencing some weird behavior. i received kernel 4.4.0-31 updates on both my workstation, a friend of mine is stuck on -28, even though he has changed the apt mirror to archive.ubuntu.com18:15

daxtorpet: the update servers are mirrored, updates tend to propagate to different servers over the course of a few hours. archive.ubuntu.com points to a bunch of different servers18:22
torpetohhh ok18:22
Bashing-omtorpet: If the X server base is the same on bothsystems ( think hwe ) then I would susypect that phasd updates is a factor : http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/08/phased-updates-to-start-rolling-out-for-ubuntu-13-0418:22
daxi wouldn't worry about it unless the update doesn't show up overnight18:22
tatertotsit's probably like that for the convenience, next time that user logs in they'd only have to type their password instead of username AND password but what if the system is used by lots of users the list of previously logged in users could get long and no longer convenient if you had to scroll through a list of 100+ names to find your user name18:23
lickalotthey all. trying to figure out how to run a script in the background once it completes so the terminal doesn't have to remain open.  tried screen (didn't do what I wanted, but it could be me)  I've added & to the end of the script (but it requires user input, username and password to complete) and I've tried to add the main process to systemd (problem with that is there are specific config files that op18:24

nacclickalott: if the script has completed why is it running?18:24
tatertotsit's kinda cool that it makes a little ding noise so you know when someone is chatting to you18:25
lickalottnacc, it's a script I built to initialize openvpn via Private Internet Access.  The script is completed but if I close the window/terminal the parent process dies as well.18:25
nacclickalott: so you need to run the script interactively, then background it?18:26

genewitchI'm performing upgrade 15.10->16.04 and it said 134 packages are no longer supported, how do i see the list of packages no longer supported?20:06

curlyearsEric^^  Yes, I believe so20:50
EriC^^curlyears: is uefi enabled?20:50
curlyearsEric^^:  it's called "EFI" in my BIOS setup screens, but yes, it is and has to be according tot he information in the BIOS, if I am using > 2TB drives, which I am20:51
EriC^^curlyears: your bios isn't that honest :D20:52
EriC^^linux has no problem with gpt + legacy, windows does though20:52

EriC^^ok, try installing it and give it another go20:54
EriC^^that tells the story nicely20:55
curlyearsit does?  It was Greek to me20:55
EriC^^only the dvd is set to boot in uefi mode somehow20:55
EriC^^it's supposed to say EFI USB and the hdd and many other stuff20:56
EriC^^which pc is it?20:56
curlyearsthat makes no sense.   There is no way I can look at BIOS settings from inside ubuntu, is there?  I have to reboot the system, and hand write all the settings I see )-:20:56

TheNH813Question, will "borrowing" a firmware file (ra3290.bin) off a Ubuntu machine work on another Linux distro, or no?21:32
curlyearsbut I did look at the EFI selection screen more closely.  It offers three choices:  EFI, Legacy or Auto.  Auto does NOT work well.  It also says it is required to boot from CD/DVD when >2TB drives are present.21:33
daxTheNH813: probably21:33
daxTheNH813: those should be distro-independent21:33
TheNH813Thanks. I'l try it then. Because one thing I really like about Ubuntu is it's massive collection of firmware. :D21:33

curlyearsEric^^:  after 8 months of fighting with this crap, I am beginning to think this thing just flat out doesn't LIKE me!   :p21:34
EriC^^curlyears: i'm no expert but it seems a little odd, if it can boot in uefi mode then it should be able to whether it's 2tb or more21:35
curlyearswell, as I said, it's only for the CD/DVD booting, apparently21:35
EriC^^the efi partition is at the beginning of the drive, i wonder why it says that21:35

curlyearsWinds circle clockwise South of the equator, where as they circle anti-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere21:39
curlyearsthat's abiout the onnkly difference.21:39
EriC^^curlyears: ok, maybe if the efi partition is on that drive it will boot, other options would be to try and see if it doesn't mind legacy or make a custom live dvd that points to the ubuntu install to boot it every time (just some options that came to mind)21:40
surgyhow do i set xfce to my defualt wm from the terminal?21:40
EriC^^curlyears: you could install ubuntu to the 500gb hdd and have the 3tb mounted somewhere too, easiest and cleanest21:40
curlyearsexcept that at the North Pole, a compass will say its pointing South no matter what direction you point it. whereas at the South Pole, it will always tell you it is pointing North.21:41

naccafaict that's https://github.com/odeke-em/drive22:52
naccit's forked from the google drive team, at least22:52
OerHeksPrince_, then i don't know, try the wine channel?22:52

tgm4883daxdax89: https://github.com/Grive/grive22:52
daxdax89i am afraid i am not knowledgable enough to pull softwares from git22:52
daxdax89never knew how to work with it22:52
nacctgm4883: grive seems sort of dead (based upon github); the other project (odeke-em/drive) was at least updated a few days ago22:53
tgm4883daxdax89: then purchase insync or use the browser22:53
daxdax89btw sup with browser offline caching22:53
daxdax89in google drive22:54
daxdax89anyone tried how it works?22:54
Prince_OerHeks_: okh buddy22:54
tgm4883daxdax89: you could always try it22:54

TommyTheKidHi all, I can't seem to find this answer with google... I am trying to launch an Ubuntu Server 12.04 or 14.04 LTS in Amazon EC2 on a t2.small instance, but t2 and m4 are not available for selection, any idea why or how to work around it? (CentOS I have to select a VPC to deploy to, then they become available)22:54
TommyTheKidI don't even see 16.04?22:55
tortibCan someone help me get USB working in my vm using kvm-qemu22:55
nacctgm4883: always a bit hard to tell with github projects are still alive or not22:55
nacctortib: i'd recommend using libvirt rather than kvm directly22:55
nacctortib: as i said before; but if you insist on command-line, how are you invoking qemu? (pastebin)22:56
naccTommyTheKid: you might ask in #ubuntu-server, or if AWS has a channel, i guess22:57
naccTommyTheKid: 16.04 is listed here: http://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/locator/ec2/22:57
TommyTheKidstrange, I wonder if hte marketplace thing is broken today?22:57
naccTommyTheKid: i wonder if AWS waits for 16.04.1 before officially pushing them out?22:57
tortibnacc, i'm using libvirt22:58
tortibnacc, using the libvirt manager22:58
TommyTheKidCanonical is responsible (as I understand it)22:58
naccTommyTheKid: k, afaict, 16.04 is avilable: https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?messageID=71631822:58
tortibnacc, any idea?22:59
tortibnacc, I can't get USB working and I need to get it to work :(22:59
nacctortib: you mean you're using virt-manager?22:59
daxdax89so what are you guys up to?22:59
tortibnacc, yes22:59
=== croppa_ is now known as croppa
TommyTheKidOh, well ... THanks for that forum post nacc ... apparently Ubuntu doesn't play by the rules to get their images into the AWS Marketplace so that they can be sarched for easily, you have to go find them on their page, then plug the ami ID back in manually, but at least they are there :)23:01
TommyTheKidand then even the (ancient) 12.04 has t2.* options. YAY23:02
nacctortib: ok, what usb device are you trying to pass thru?23:02
TommyTheKidthanks nacc!23:03
naccTommyTheKid: np, glad it worked for you23:04
nacctortib: what happens when you try? how did you try?23:05
tortibnacc, I add the device and then start the VM23:15
nacctortib: add the device in the GUI?23:16
nacctortib: you've only answered 1 of my 3 questions.23:17

maestrojedI created a new user. When I use SSH to auth in as that user I get a message that "Could not chdir to home directory /home/myNewUser: No such file or directory". Should I manually create this directory? My next steps were to add SSH keys which I would typically do in the user directory.23:31
naccmaestrojed: how did you add the user?23:31
maestrojednacc useradd -g www-data myNewUser23:31
naccmaestrojed: generally, should use adduser unless you know you have passed all flags to useradd23:32
naccmaestrojed: in this case, i think you're missing -d23:32
naccmaestrojed: err, -m, rather23:32
maestrojednacc  good to know. I was following a tut. :)23:32
maestrojedAnother question. Very minor but I am curious. I have been using the root user to set things up until this point. Now that I use MyNewUser the prompt is much more basic, doesn't show current path, etc. I guess maybe I look at root's bash config and replicate it23:34
maestrojedDoesn't really matter23:34
naccmaestrojed: in ubuntu, sudo is recommended23:34
naccmaestrojed: rather than using the root user23:34
maestrojedI know. I only had root until I created MyNewUser23:35
naccmaestrojed: that would be because you again, used useradd rather than adduser; so you were missing a skeleton home directory and file s23:35
naccmaestrojed: e.g., .bashrc etc23:35
maestrojedI am trying to get to the place to not use root and only sudo23:35
maestrojednacc  gotcha. makes sense. Thanks!23:35
naccmaestrojed: how did you have root in the first place? no default install of ubuntu has root as a user (afaik) anymore23:35
maestrojednacc  a provisioning from DigitalOcean23:36

dreadkop_hey guys. i am in a ubuntu 16.04 trying to mount a exfat partition. i need exfat-fuse and exfat-utils as i read however apt-get says there is no package of this name... aptitude search also give no package when searching for 'exfat'23:42
maestrojedWould I cause concern if I just copied my .bashrc from the root user (/root) to my user (/home/myNewUser)?23:42
maxbErm, "no default install of ubuntu has root as a user (afaik) anymore", is somewhat inaccurate. Every installation of Ubuntu has a root user. Ubuntu merely encourages you not to use it except when you explicitly need elevated privileges23:43
\9maestrojed: why from /root/ and not /etc/skel/.bashrc?23:45
WhiteNightFiles from /root are specific to the root user only. and files from /etc/skel are like template files which should be applied for all other non-root users23:46
maestrojed\9 because I didn't know better.23:46
maestrojed:) I will adjust.23:46
dreadkop_tried to build exfat-fuse from git but it says Package requirements (fuse) not met. However fuse is installed? anyone might help? i am confused23:48
theskillwithinim on ubunbut now =]23:48
vltdreadkop_: exfat-fuse is available in universe.23:50
vltdreadkop_: No need to build it.23:50
maestrojedOk, Sorry, this is a lot of 101 stuff. I can shut up an go to google if this is annoying.23:50
dreadkop_vlt: ah. thanks for the hint. for some reason univers repo was unchecked. however strange the git build complains about missing fuse23:51
maestrojedI copied the .bashrc from the skeleton directory. Things still see 'weird' to me on the CLI23:51
maestrojedexample. Pressing up arrow key typically cycles through my last run commands but not with this user.23:51
WhiteNightmaestrojed, the .bashrc file in the home directory of your user should be present, which imports most of the things from the system bashrc, which in Ubuntu is /etc/bash.bashrc23:52
Guy1524hey guys, what is the best way to completely reinstall ubuntu but keep some files23:53
maestrojedWhiteNight ok, I can try grabbing that one. I created my user incorrectly in a way that did not do all that for me. Trying to clean up. I used useradd instead of adduser. nacc helped me realize that :)23:53
daxput the files on external storage and then reinstall :|23:53
Guy1524should I just back them up to my secondary storage drive and put them back on23:53
=== fernando is now known as Guest21118
daxthat'd be my recommendation. safer than more complicated ideas.23:54
WhiteNightGuy1524, since you are doing a re-install, you might want to consider having a separate /data partition so that whenever you re-install etc. you never have to backup (Although external storage backup is always a good idea)23:55
Guy1524how do I make a seperate partition for my home folder23:55
Guy1524I have heard about people doing it before but I have never looked into it23:56
WhiteNightmaestrojed, how did you create the User ID? Creating via using the useradd command, may not effectively get you all stuffs that you may need. Try the User Add feature from the Control Panel (Settings) option on your system. That will run that command in the background with all the options needed and it will include all necessary files needed for the new user, and Ibelieve you shouldnt be facing such issues23:56
WhiteNightGuy1524, I gtg, sorry, but a quick thing is, on the Partition Page of the Ubuntu Installer, choose custom ..... and follow it from there23:57
Guy1524ok thanks23:57
WhiteNightrest, please do put your questions, someone else would answer if they are free, thanks23:58
maestrojedWhiteNight  This is ununtu server. No GUI. Which I think is what you mean by "control panel". But okay, should I delete the user and start over? Can I just run adduser even though I already created the user with useradd?23:58
maestrojedWhiteNight I created this user with "useradd -g www-data myNewUser"23:58
WhiteNightmaestrojed, sorry, gtg, wait for somebody else to answer, or you can try the Ubuntu forums as per the guidelines of this channel23:58
maestrojedWhiteNight  thanks for the help man! have a great week23:59
