Ubuntu_FailIs there a forum that can help with graphics/nvidia issues?00:00
wadThanks. But I think the data is just lost. I've reformatted the partition, installed a new OS on it, and copied over a bunch of files. :(00:00
Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: I do have just a bit of skill in that respect . 1st is to clean up and then see what is intalled . what now returns ' sudo find / -name "NVIDIA-Linux-*" ' ?00:01
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: I have installed a variety of drivers - 362, 361, 26700:02
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: Its an ALienware 13 R2 with a GeForce GTX 965M00:03
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: I actually get a kernel oops if I boot with nvidia 367 - I have a bunch of logs saved if you want00:03
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied00:04
Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: K. but I want to know that an install from Nvidia is not a factor in this . show me - sudo find / -name "NVIDIA-Linux-*" - . Then we see what we have to work with .00:04
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: See above - I just get /run/user/1000/gvfs permission denied.  I have never installed the nvidia raw drivers - only regular ubuntu and graphics-ppa (both fail)00:06

Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: K Hybrid graphics .. we will need a means to control the different graphics sets . .. That be nvidia-prime by recomendation .00:13
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: yes - I'm using the intel graphics right now off the standard nvidia package (looks like 361)00:15
Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: ^^ Nvidia does recommend the 367 vrsion driver for that card : http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/105343/en-us . Only available in release 16.04 .00:16
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: i get a kernel oops/panic when I boot with 36700:16
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: I have a syslog file of that - do you want me to post it somewhere?00:16
=== Guest55 is now known as CodA
Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: K .. lets see where you are getting the driver . Our trusted PPA : https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa. And also sky Lake may still require - i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 - as a boot option .00:20
psyguy2sup guys, anyone care to help me make a grub iso in 16.04?00:20
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: d oyou want me to reinstall 367 from graphics-ppa? Do I need to modify grub somewhere for that boot option?00:21
psyguy2the website says there should be a i386-pc dir but i have x86_64-efi instead00:22
EriC^^psyguy2: grub iso?00:23
psyguy2this is what im trying to do (on step 2): http://lifehacker.com/how-to-dual-boot-and-virtualize-the-same-partition-on-y-49322332900:23
EriC^^well that's interesting00:25
Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: Seems there is support in 16.04 for sky lake with the "i965-va-driver". Bear in mind if Intell is not happy, because Nvidia passes through it - then Nvidia is not happy . see: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2328993 . And we work at cleaning things up and see what we can do to install the proper drivers . Now that is what I think.00:26
EriC^^psyguy2: are you using uefi?00:28
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: "i965-va-driver is already the newest version (1.7.0-1)."00:28
psyguy2its a brand new laptop so i assume i have uefi... but the bios looks very old school00:28
psyguy2so i am not sure really00:29
EriC^^psyguy2: so the install is going to be in uefi mode00:29
EriC^^are you in linux now?00:29
EriC^^type ls /sys/firmware/efi00:30
EriC^^so you're going to need to make the vm a uefi vm for linux to boot00:30
Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: Now that is a great thing // so we mess with the Nvidia driver install . what PPA for the Nvidia driver are you using ?00:30
EriC^^honestly it's a headache imho00:30
psyguy2ok, well ive got nothing to lose00:31
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: I think I'm currently back on the mainstream - I've tried a multitude of graphics-ppa drivers, but I think currently I was troubleshootign with regular ones...00:32
psyguy2ls /sys/firmware/efi00:32
psyguy2config_table  efivars  esrt  fw_platform_size  fw_vendor  runtime  runtime-map  systab  vars00:32
Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: This one : https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa ?00:33
EriC^^yeah it's uefi mode psyguy200:33
psyguy2ok, so how do i make this grub iso in uefi mode?00:34
EriC^^psyguy2: is your vm in uefi mode00:34
EriC^^psyguy2: i dont know if you even can00:34
psyguy2i dont really have a vm yet00:34
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: 367?00:34
EriC^^try replacing x86_6400:34
EriC^^i doubt it'll work though00:35
psyguy2replacing where?00:35
EriC^^in /usr/lib/...00:35
psyguy2hmm i can possibly ommit the grub iso and boot straight off the main grub00:36
Bashing-omUbuntu_Fail: Yeah directly we will .. 1st is to insure we are clean prior to the install . What returns ' dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia ' ?00:36
EriC^^psyguy2: well you'd need to point the vm's uefi to the grub efi file to boot it00:36
EriC^^using efibootmgr00:36
psyguy2ok, i dont understand much of this stuff, but i did a similar thing on my desktop pc with 14.0400:37
EriC^^also the efi partition would be mounted in the vm, it possibly might be mounted in windows if it's doing an update or something and could get corrupted, but i guess the vm would always shut off before windows ever mounts it i guess00:38
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: ii  bbswitch-dkms                               0.8-3ubuntu1                                                amd64        Interface for toggling the power on NVIDIA Optimus video cards ii  libcuda1-361                                361.42-0ubuntu200:38

Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: nvidia 361, opencl-cid-361, prime, settings00:40
psyguy2im trying to make a VM in windows to boot off an ubuntu partition on the same hdd00:40
Ubuntu_FailBashing-om: as well as bbswitch-dkms, libcuda1-36100:40
EriC^^psyguy2: if you dont mind the efi partition thing which is pretty unlikely, then just create a uefi vm and use a linux live iso in it to change the efibootmgr to point to /boot/efi/efi/ubuntu/grubx64.efi00:41
EriC^^you'd need this command sudo efibootmgr -c -w -l \\EFI\\ubuntu\\grubx64.efi -L "ubuntu" -p X -d /dev/sdY00:41
EriC^^where X is efi partition and Y is the disk00:41

rypervenchesruli: It should say: "Enter any existing passphrase:" and if it fails, "No key available with this passphrase."03:46
Guest59337I'll give it another go. I'll uninstall the intel drivers then.03:46
rypervenchesruli: If it works, it should ask you to type in the new passphrase after you type in the first.03:47
Ubuntu_fail2Bashing-om: doesn't say anything about nvidia - should it?03:47
srulirypervenche: all it asked me was "Enter passphrase to be changed:"03:47

A124How does one get the ubuntu version?03:54
rypervenchesruli: It should tell you it failed, but maybe that version of it doesn't. I can check on a 14.04 instance if you like. But I would say it is not right.03:54

ubottuA124: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea.

srulirypervenche: now i get "No key available with this pass-phrase." can i add a key using luksAddKey --slot 1 ?04:00
Bashing-omUbuntu_fail2: Got me .. I have yet to have any experience with VMs .. can you not update the virtualbox install to what is current ???04:01
rypervenchesruli: No. You still need to know one of the keys of the LUKS container. Keep guessing, or starting moving the data off of it.04:01
srulirypervenche: i have abackup of all the data, it will waste a week trying to setup the server again ... i want to avoid that04:02
cfhowlettkrist64, ask your ubuntu question04:02
rypervenchesruli: Then keep guessing. And you don't have to set up the server again, just resync the data over after you recreate a new LUKS encrypted container.04:03
krist64cfhowlett: LAMP 16.04 it secure online?04:04

srulirypervenche: did not work with sudo, worked with root04:19
sruli rypervenche: i guess to use with sudo need some more 'sudo's' in the command, couldnt figure out where so went with su04:19

srulii am using phpvirtualbox and trying to start a VM from webadmin its gets stuck at "20% starting virtual machine" (tried with 4 VM's) i cant stop/halt it or anything, VBoxManage doesnt seem to see any registered VM's (i have 3 running which i can connect to) what can i do?04:40

sidgupta234 guys I think my CMOS battery is not working properly, issue with the time sync, should I replace it, or can continue working the way it is going, time syncs with internet so gets corrected automatically.06:04
BackwardsSidgupta234 have you tested the battery?06:04
BackwardsSid does your computer keep time?06:05
BackwardsDo you have to reset the time when you re-boot?06:05
sidgupta234I have a dual boot, on Windows the time loses sync, on ubuntu time is shown fine.06:06
BackwardsIf you re-boot and you have to re-set the time then the battery is bad.06:06
sidgupta234in the case of reboot the battery remembers the time.06:06
BackwardsChange the Lithium Battery.06:06
BackwardsThen in BIOS set the settings again.06:07
sidgupta234Am unable to get in the BIOS menu.06:07
=== jstein_ is now known as jstein
BackwardsEven if the battery is bad it will keep a sloppy voltage to talk with the BIOS.06:08
sidgupta234Yes, thats what I read.06:08
sidgupta234Backwards: If am unable to get to the BIOS menu, has it anything to do with the battery?06:09
CoJaBosidgupta234: what version of Windows?06:09
BackwardsChange the battery and re-set the BIOS.06:09
sidgupta234CoJaBo: win7/ubuntu 16.0406:09
CoJaBoIt's not the battery, it's a Win XP known bug. which apperently they never fixed lol06:09
BackwardsWhen the computer boots up hit Ctrl whatever the screen tells you to do,.06:09
CoJaBoBackwards: The battery is only used to keep time when turned off06:10
CoJaBoIf it's drifting while on, it's the Windows bug06:10
sidgupta234Backwords: I tried everything, it says please wait.. and then boom the choose OS screen pops up.06:10
BackwardsThe battery sets the CPU clock speed and more.06:10
CoJaBoThere's a BIOS tweak to sync the time more frequently; I ended up setting mine to do it once an hour, since the drift was quite fast..06:11
sidgupta234Backwards: can one do without changing the battery?06:11
BackwardsCoJaBo batteries do drift in voltage and yes time difference.06:11
CoJaBoBackwards: ..?06:12
sidgupta234is the cmos necessary?06:12
CoJaBosidgupta234: Does it happen while turned on? If so, you can be 100% certain it's not the battery.06:12
sidgupta234CojaBo: it only happens overnight when I turn my laptop off.06:13
BackwardsOK this is the point. If the computer boots up and the time is always on default then the battery is dead.06:13
chull_my husband's ubuntu 16.04 is stuck in an upgrade for over a day06:13
chull_i hope somebody can help?06:13
CoJaBosidgupta234: heh, and those might not be replacable.. I'd just set it to sync on startup/resume then06:13
sidgupta234Backwards: it is not always on default, it changes just not enough. If I swtich it off at 10 pm and open it at 10 am, it says 5 am06:13
BackwardsStop crying and start buying. A battery is no more than what a few dollars?06:14

CoJaBoYeh, but it's not easily accessible, and some of them are even soldered on06:15

YankDownUndermike-zal: Ancient "Window Manglers" from the days before KDE and Gnome...07:06
mike-zalI'm mostly using manjaro, but also enjoy ubuntu so I installed it on another partition and currently gave it a little love and enjoy the system a lot.07:06
mike-zalalso wanted to try to install skyrim on windows steam on ubuntu in hope it will work better then in manjaro. steam in arch systems is problematic because of newer packages and libs07:08
YankDownUndermike-zal: Coolbeans...a long time ago, I was heavily involved in "Mandrake" - which ended up becoming "Mandriva" - which then died and split into Manjaro and Mageia...hehehe...they're all good...as long as you're not running M$ stuff, you're good to go...07:08
mike-zalmy polish friedns loved mageia but now they all switched to manjaro07:08
auronandaceYankDownUnder: manjaro is a fork of Arch07:09
YankDownUndermike-zal: the beauty of it all is that we have choice.07:09
mike-zalanyway, is there a way to mangae kernels in ubuntu? in manjaro it's easy. don't see anything obvious on ubuntu thou.07:09
mike-zalI'm not sure if upgrade switched to kernel 4.4 or is still using 4.207:09
cfhowlettmike-zal, sudo apt-get autoremove should do the job07:09
YankDownUndermike-zal: 4.4 should be the go...but yeah, remove the old kernel images unless you've got reason to keep them. I had a crap time with s07:11
mike-zalno issues with kernels. I like to keep two of them for a system in case of emergency.07:11
YankDownUndermike-zal: ...with Solaris and mixed up kernels...toasted a server installation...07:11
mike-zalI already had situation where second kernel was usful.07:11
YankDownUndermike-zal: I maintain a Fedora box where there are three kernels kept...for reasons of customised software...a bit of a PITA in some instances, but it's been a beauty of a lifesaver in the fact that if the devs make a monster mistake, all is not lost... :)07:12
mike-zalin manjaro kernels management is very easy. a pity I can't see anything like that on ubuntu. also drivers are pain in the ass on ubuntu, manjaro is better when it comes to it. but I manged. had to manually install bumblebee and manually edit conf files to make nvidia works in ubuntu and finally end fan and overheating problem.07:13
mike-zalbut once I set up everything in ubuntu, I enjoy it a lot07:13
raduwhat do u set up ?07:14
YankDownUndermike-zal: This box (pointing at the workstation I'm using) - merely required some "customisation attention" - otherwise, I shy far away from doing anything other than USING it for important things...like IRC...and torrents...and being a "file server"...very little overhead maintenance...and that, THAT - makes me very happy...07:15
mike-zaljust istalled TLP and nvidia bumblebee drivers. that ended overheating and batter drain craziness.07:15
mike-zalubuntu doesn't recognize hybrid gpu out of the box as manjaro does07:16
mike-zaland because of that all ubuntu and ubuntu derivatives make my fan go crazy by default07:16
raducan ubuntu run games like windows does ?07:17
raduhow ?07:17
mike-zaljust install steam on wine or playonlinux07:17
cfhowlett!steam | radu07:17
ubotturadu: Valve have officially announced that they are developing Steam and are working with !ubuntu during their development, see http://blogs.valvesoftware.com/linux/steamd-penguins/ for further details, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Valve for install instructions, you can also join #ubuntu-steam for discussion.07:17
YankDownUndermike-zal: Understandable..."Plan the work, work the plan" - preparation beforehand is a helpful thing...07:17
mike-zalI think running steam through wine is easier then unsing playonlinux in case of modding some games07:18
mike-zalYankDownUnder, yeah, after a year with linux and different distros I can handle some minor issues so in the end my installations works perfectly. no issues with manjaro for over a half a year. ubuntu also seems to work fine but I'm testing it shortly.07:19
verdammtemike-zal: does it eat dog feces?07:19
YankDownUndermike-zal: "To each, his own" as it were...inasmuch as I do not do gaming, I'm realtively safe from having to fight/argue with emulation and the likes.07:19
YankDownUnderMeanwhile, have a lovely evening...time for a nice Sunday evening movie and a coffee. Cheers!07:20
mike-zalyeah, gaming can be pain in ass but most windows games work if you know your way around linux07:20
verdammtemike-zal: just eat manure.07:20
verdammteit solves all your problems!07:21
mike-zalI don't game much, not enough time for it but if I do, most my beloved games is on windows exclusively so I have no choice as to face issues and solve them ;P07:21

cfhowlettrajivmars, community wallpapers are in a different package.  I don't use kubuntu and xubuntu might not be installing where kubuntu expects to find things.  alternative plan: apt-get download xubuntu-wallpapers to, say, downloads.  extract the files then point your desktop wallpaper control to those files.08:22

shadowmancer1Hola all, weird issue I've been running into and been researching and kind of come up with zilch. So basically using a cheap netbook I got from Aldi i got a few years ago, I loaded Lubuntu 16.04, which needed a bit of poking to get the GUI to work but that isn't the issue (Didn't load the intel video drivers which wasn't so hard).09:35
shadowmancer1The issue is with my wifi, I have an Atheros Wifi card AR9285, and it seems to not want to connect to my wifi no matter what I do.09:35
shadowmancer1'lspci' shows I'm using ath9k, which appears to be right according to all the ubuntu forums.09:35
shadowmancer1'rfkill list all' shows no hard or soft blocks in place09:35
shadowmancer1I've attempted to connected via wpa_supplicant in the cli, though found that after it said everything was running when I tried dhclient it seemed stuck on discover.09:35
shadowmancer1Here's a dump of my syslog http://pastebin.com/53jdTpRi.09:35
sokocant help with the wifi but would recommend ubuntu's network install mini.iso if you have ethernet09:44

ducasseshadowmancer1: yes, that's doing what i said - trying to auth. that message does not come from the dhcp client.10:08
ducasseshadowmancer1: first you see "authenticate with...", "authenticated", "associate with...", "associated" and 4 seconds later "disassociated".10:10
shadowmancer1ducasse: I can't figure out why it isn't authing though, it seems no matter what I do it doesn't want to accept the password, and I don't want to drop down to WEP, and it doesn't give me the option to change encryption types, so I'm assuming it is using AES, and as I said, I've tried the whole wpa_supplicant from the command line, and nmcli and it doesn't seem to pass mustard either. I can't seem to find the log for wpa_supplican10:11
ducasseshadowmancer1: the man page says it logs to stdout, and there is a switch to log to syslog.10:15
ducasseshadowmancer1: you can't select encryption type on the router?10:15
shadowmancer1ducasse: It only lets me use WPA2 Personal with AES (well it does give the option of WPA1 with TKIP), as for the syslog, didn't realize that, will have to fix that up. Late where I am so off to bed, thanks for the advice and I'll use it to further my investigation :)10:17

andrzejcan I make dd copy of USB drive even if my system is not able to read USB Drive file system? Is dd doing 1:1 copy?11:54
minimecdahlia_: Oh I see, so you get dependency problems. Well... you either try to solve them or contact the genymotion support and ask for a possible solution. I don't think that you will find older versions easily, and if you do so, I would not consider them trustworthy...11:54
ducassemike_papa: sorry, no idea. you could try #ubuntu-server?11:54

UnskippHello everyone. I have installed ubuntu 16.04 on my new laptop and suspend doesn't work. It goes in suspend but when it resumes, it restarts completly. I tried to edit /etc/default/grub with acpi_sleep=nonvs and update it after but it doesn't help. ANy suggestions guys ?11:55
andrzejQueenslayer: thats fine :) I just said that because I tough you want to know :)11:56
QueenslayerUnskipp: I think that's a bug11:56
Queenslayerandrzej: Thanks for clarification11:56
UnskippQueenslayer: I also tried different kernel versions (4.6.4 i believe it was) same problem. Should I try an older kernel / older ubuntu version ?11:56
QueenslayerUnskipp: I've had similar issues with my desktop, many suggested trying different kernels11:56
Queenslayerlol exactly11:56
QueenslayerI don't think it'll work11:57
andrzejUnskipp: you may want to check Ubuntu bugzilla (is it called lunchpad?) for solution11:57
QueenslayerIt's possibly a variety of issues, kernel downgrade/upgrade being one of them11:57
Unskippandrzej: I did try, many suggested editing the grub with acpi_sleep but it didn't fix it for me.11:57
QueenslayerUnskipp: Try older kernel then11:57
QueenslayerAnd after that, just leave it11:57
QueenslayerUnless you're a dev, it's not worth the hassle11:58
QueenslayerI've moved to Linux Mint because of it11:58
ducasseUnskipp: easiest thing would be to try 14.04 live usb for example.11:58
QueenslayerFor some setups, it just doesn't work11:58
UnskippQueenslayer: Alright, I`ll try some other kernels.11:58
Unskippducasse: can i suspend from live usb and then resume ? (never done that)11:59
dahlia_minimec, thanks now guys in 14.04 what can they do?11:59
ducasseUnskipp: i would think so.12:00
dahlia_guys, why ubuntu 16.04 in notmal situation uses memory about 1.4 gb but ubuntu 14.04 about 400 mb , really why?12:00
Unskippducasse: Alright. I will try. Would it make a difference if i try arch linux and test dev kernel ?12:00
minimecdahlia_: that version of genymotion, that you can download... Does it come as a .deb package?12:01
Queenslayerducasse: better to mess around with kernel installations first12:01
dahlia_minimec, it was .bin12:02
ducasseUnskipp: maybe. there are also lots of acpi tuning you can try, but someone else here might be more familiar than me with that.12:02
minimecdahlia_: Did you try to install it?12:02
dahlia_minimec, yeah i try alot, it was failed at all12:03
ducasseQueenslayer: a 14.04 live image is a very easy way to test an older kernel...12:04
dahlia_minimec, http://pastebin.com/nzBuLG1W , it is my error12:04
dahlia_guys, why ubuntu 16.04 in notmal situation uses memory about 1.4 gb but ubuntu 14.04 about 400 mb , really why?12:05
samgoodyHi all.12:06
samgoodyI have a text file, which I need to split on delimiter. (in this case "——")12:06
codex404allo :v12:07
RonWhoCaresHow do I make the changes @ http://askubuntu.com/a/189364/453336 permanent?12:08
samgoodyThe text of the file is Hebrew, and csplit seems to have garbled the output12:08
samgoodyI read somewhere since that csplit doesn't handle unicode12:08
samgoodyThe output should be saved in incremeted file names.12:09
ahrc333ffRonWhoCares: this is something I wasn't able to resolve cleanly. The solution I had for this was to create a startup script that ran with user login.12:09
MonkeyDustsamgoody  try in the channel #bash , if you don't get an answer here12:09
ducasseRonWhoCares: 'man xorg.conf' - you can create a snippet to add a mode and set it to default.12:10
samgoodyOh, good idea12:10
ahrc333ffahrc333ff: on my machine I couldn't get any output to my monitor, so for me that meant I had to ssh into my machine to run the script, then the monitor would turn on o_0 lol. Not pleasant.12:11
RonWhoCaresducasse: This is a good idea.  Which xord.conf should I edit?  There are several12:11
craptalkhow to access phpmyadmin on ubuntu after installation?12:11
ducasseRonWhoCares: you just create a snippet with what you need, and add it /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d12:12
minimecdahlia_: "sudo apt-get install libstdc++6"12:12
ducasseRonWhoCares: (unless one of the others deals with modes, then add it there)12:12
minimecdahlia_: Try to find some installation manual or readme file. There should be something like that...12:13
MonkeyDustcraptalk  old post (2010) ... http://askubuntu.com/questions/19127/how-to-access-phpmyadmin-after-installation12:14
RonWhoCaresducasse: I've created the file.  I am rebooting12:14
andrzejdahlia_: what if I tell you that my 16.04 technically uses 16GB of RAM and this is a good thing?12:15
dahlia_minimec, thanks mr , i will try and notify you the result12:17
dahlia_andrzej, you have perfect pc, really it uses 16 gb?????????12:18
minimecdahlia_: It is probably installed already... You could try to apt-pin a newer version to you 14.04 installation, but that is not the easiest thing, if you have never done it before...12:18
ducassedahlia_: mine has ~300mb free of 32gb. most of that is used on cache.12:19
RonWhoCaresducasse: That didn't work.  When I rebooted I got an error message 'Could not apply the stored configuration for monitors'12:20
andrzejdahlia_: roughly 16GB, at the moment it shows 4.5 GB of normal memory and 11GB of caches are kept in stam12:20
dahlia_ducasse, are you talking about hard usage?? :-012:20
dahlia_minimec, so what can i do? :-/12:20
ducassedahlia_: memory not in use by applications is used for cache, so it's normal that memory appears nearly full. it will be freed up when needed.12:21
minimecdahlia_: As I told you. Try to contact the genymotion support, consider an upgrade to 16.04 or try to debug dependencies. Third optoin is the hardest one ;)12:21
dahlia_andrzej, oh oh oh oh, oh my god :-/, i can sell you my ubuntu 16.04 , it is very cheap and uses just 1.4 gb12:22
andrzejdahlia_: it's not hard usage, I have 2 chrome instances with about 20 tabs, robule file explorer windows, spotify and couple small apps, that takes those 4.5GB rest of it is for caches12:22
RonWhoCaresducasse: The lines I added into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d are:   http://pastebin.com/cCcvYbjS12:22
dahlia_ducasse, oh, but my system freezed after running light app like music player, but it has about 2gb free ram12:23
andrzejdahlia_: I don't consider it bad, from my perspective free RAM is wasted RAM, if I have 16GB in my machine I want this to work for me not lay around for that one occasion when I will run something memory intensive12:24
ducasseRonWhoCares: that won't work. you are trying to edit a directory and add shell commands. read the man page i pointed you to, that shows you how to add a mode.12:24
RonWhoCareswhat is the man command again12:25
ducasseRonWhoCares: 'man xorg.conf'12:25
dahlia_andrzej, it means that ubuntu 16.04 is better than ubuntu 14.04 in ram usage??? am i understood correcly?12:26
ducassedahlia_: they're probably about the same.12:26
androiduser8_dahila_: You should upgrade to ubuntu 16.0412:27
arunsHi. I am using XFCE on Ubuntu 14.04.12:27
arunsHow can I get a taskbar icon for wifi connections?12:27
androiduser8_aruns: You should use 16.0412:27
arunsCurrently, it displays as notification popups.12:27
arunsandroiduser8_: I've got an ancient laptop, so no.12:27
andrzejdahlia_: I don't know actually, last time when I used ubuntu it was 12.10 than I went OSX and I back on ubuntu since 15.10 but in comparision with 12.10 it is more efficient despite the fact it needs more ram to even get started12:28
ducassearuns: isn't nm-applet running?12:28
androiduser8_aruns: Then get a newer laptop12:28
bekksdahlia_: Unused RAM is wasted RAM. Unless you have a memory overcommitment, memory usage doesnt say much.12:28
dahlia_androiduser8_, i have 16.04 nearby 14.04 , but when i worked with android studio 16.04 it hangs and i should force reboot12:28
arunsandroiduser8_: I'm happy with 14.04.12:28
ducasseandroiduser8_: that's not very helpful.12:28
andrzejdahlia_: on what machine you have that ubuntu install? what cpu, how much ram?12:28
androiduser8_Then you should upgrade android studio12:28
arunsducasse: I will check.12:29
dahlia_andrzej, cpu core i 3 and ram about 4 gb12:29
arunsducasse: Do I check for nm-applet under Settings > Panel?12:30
dahlia_bekks, omg , but i thought that my system hanging is becuse of memory usage12:30
andrzejdahlia_: I consider 4GB as minimum for Ubuntu (Unity needs more RAM than it should). With that amount of RAM I would consider Ubuntu Mate or Xubuntu if you want to go to 16.0412:30
ducassearuns: 'pgrep nm-applet' for example12:30
minimecaruns: open a terminal and 'pidof nm-applet'12:30
bekksUbuntu runs fine with 2GB or RAM.12:31
minimecaruns: You should get a process number.12:31
bekksdahlia_: How about looking at "free -m" then :)12:31
arunsThe process ID for nm-applet is 2527.12:31
androiduser8_How about /dev/null?12:31
andrzejdahlia_: BTW it is the best time to go to 16.04 because 16.04.1 has been released which in short is kind of like Service Pack for ubuntu12:31
minimecaruns: So its running12:31
arunsminimec: It appears so.12:31
andrzejbekks: Ubuntu _RUNS_ on 2GB of RAM, would not consider it _fine_12:32
androiduser8_command > /dev/sda12:32
dahlia_andrzej, i went to ubuntu becuse i hated microsoft windows, windows wasn't bad but ubuntu was more fast than window, but now ubuntu 16.04 is hang all time12:32
androiduser8_dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/sda12:32
ducasseandroiduser8_: stop trolling.12:33
bekksandrzej: It runs FINE with 2GB RAM.12:33
androiduser8_Those commands don't even do anything in this chat window12:33
bekksdahlia_: So take a look at free -m for finding out wether you have a memory issue.12:33
dahlia_i went to ubuntu just because of my less memory and cpu12:33
tigefawhy 16.04 hang @dahlia_12:33
bekksandrzej: Because OS commands in a chat window are expected to do nothing.12:33
bekksandroiduser8_: ^^12:34
andrzejbekks: well I still prefer to have more RAM for cache that is speeding up system massively12:34
minimecbekks: andrzej: I agree. Fedora 24 with gnome3 on 2GB Ram Chromebook runs like charm too.12:34
dahlia_tigefa, just i ran android studio and geny motion on it, somtimes when i am listening to music also it hangs12:34
androiduser8_So therefore, is it troling because you are trying to get people to destroy their computers on purspoe or something??12:34
dahlia_bekks, half of memmory is used and swap is empty12:35
tigefaouh, that big one @dahlia_ :)12:35

thomas_25i've added another user and added him to sudo group but still he can't sudo. any idea?12:43
ducassethomas_25: has he logged out/in?12:43
thomas_25btw, i'm switching to the new user via 'sudo -e newuser'12:44
thomas_25'sudo - newuser'12:44
andrzejthomas_25: what command you used to add him to sudo?12:44
ducassethomas_25: is the sudo group listed by 'groups'?12:44
thomas_25not -e, would that make a different, i hardly think so12:44
thomas_25adduser newuser sudo12:45
thomas_25when i log into the new user and type `id` i can see that he is a member of sudo12:45
andrzejthomas_25: tu switch to other user do 'su newuser'12:45
andrzejafter you switch to newuser try something like 'sudo ls /'12:46
andrzejdoes it works?12:46
thomas_25it asks for password12:46
andrzejpassword of newuser12:46
thomas_25the default user works without password because it doesn't have one i suppose eh12:46
andrzejthomas_25: are you on live usb or on installed instance of ubuntu?12:47
thomas_25installed instance12:47
bekksFor using the environment of the new user, you should use su - newuser, not su newuser. And for testing out sudo abilities of newuser, just take a look at the group memberships.12:47
thomas_25but it's an amazon instance, i haven't installed it manually12:47
andrzejso you have to have pass on your user12:47
andrzejoh, I don't know about amazon, it should have pass on your username but I have no idea12:48
tigefa@thomas_25 try this http://askubuntu.com/q/192050/23955612:48
andrzejtigefa: I think he solved it12:48

__raven_how to force max fan speed on acer aspire e5-573 with ubuntu 16.04?12:48
thomas_25just my expectation was off, new user can sudo if he enters his password12:48
thomas_25default user doesn't need to enter his password to issue sudo12:48
tigefausermod -aG sudo newuser12:49
ducasse__raven_: install fancontrol, i think.12:50
__raven_ducasse: i tried but "no drivers"12:50
andrzejthomas_25: apparently yes, but remember it is wildly unsecure to not have pass on your account, there is also, how I called it, "sudo memory :)", basically ubuntu remembers that you authenticated sudo on your account and for 5 minutes or so don't ask you for putting password again if you are using sudo12:50
__raven_/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed12:50
andrzejthomas_25: thats may be the reason why system did not ask you for a pass when you used sudo on your account12:51
ducasse__raven_: you might need to run sensors-detect.12:51

WheatThinsHello, my external NTFS 1TB HDD stopped reading in Windows, and chkdsk wasn't running, but it reads in an Ubuntu liveboot. Ran SMART quickscan on it, a bunch of fields say old age or pre-fail but it shows the general assessment at OK, what should I do?13:07
ToAruShiroiNekoWheatThins I would use the drive as little as possible13:08
_unreal_WheatThins, what partition format is the HD?13:08
minimecWheatThins: Backup... ;)13:08
Eduard_MunteanuWheatThins, it's fine.13:08
Eduard_MunteanuWheatThins, "old age" and "pre-fail" represent the type of wear/failure *in case* they fail.13:08
ToAruShiroiNekoget another drive and backup what you REALLY need, then what you need and then anything else you wish13:08
_unreal_WheatThins, what format is your partition? on this drive13:08
WheatThins_unreal_: NTFS13:08
ToAruShiroiNeko_unreal_ NTFS based on what he said13:09
ToAruShiroiNekoWheatThins dont panic13:09
WheatThinsminimec:  hard to back up when it's the largest harddrive with you and you're half the planet away from home13:09
_unreal_ya :) just get a strong drink13:09
Eduard_MunteanuPre-fail fields are those that may foretell a drive failure if they get out of range.13:09
WheatThinsAnything I can do that's proactive? It was showing as 0% usage in Windows13:09
WheatThins_unreal_: strong drink at the ready13:10
Eduard_MunteanuWheatThins, it's fine, unless the row registers as failed.13:10
WheatThinsWould it be good to defrag it or run fsck13:10
_unreal_do you only use the drive on windows or do you also use it on linux?13:10
Eduard_MunteanuNo need to.13:10
WheatThins_unreal_: I use it on both13:11
_unreal_WheatThins, !! ding ding ding ding13:11
WheatThinsEduard_Munteanu: going for peace of mind here, just want to make sure it won't harm it to use it, even if I don't need to13:11
WheatThins_unreal_: it's NTFS though not like ext413:11
Eduard_MunteanuWheatThins, like I said, all SMART parameters are either prefail or oldage, there's no "good" type.13:12
WheatThinsEduard_Munteanu: ty13:12
_unreal_WheatThins, NTFS is a format that is for windows. when writing to an NTFS drive using linux. there is th potential to mess up the format13:12
_unreal_I have delt with it before.... do what you can to pack up your files that you need13:12
WheatThins_unreal_: is there a better cross platform format that isn't fat32?13:12
_unreal_you can add support for ext2 in windows and other formats but fat32 is really your best choices13:13
Eduard_Munteanu  1 Raw_Read_Error_Rate     0x002f   200   200   051    Pre-fail  Always       -       013:13
_unreal_WheatThins, never write to an NTFS drive using linux it will Fark the partition13:13
Eduard_MunteanuYou can see the WHEN_FAILED field is -, so it did NOT fail.13:14
WheatThinsI don't much care for FAT32 as I have files larger than 4GB sometimes13:14
mike-zal2is it possible to expand system's partition without braking fstab and similar settings?13:14
ikoniaWheatThins: it's not going to work out well for you13:14
ikoniamike-zal2: fstab has nothing to do with the size13:14
mike-zal2I need more space and I have on disk, but not on the system partiton...13:14
ikoniamike-zal2: boot from a livecd, resize it, job done13:15
mike-zal2ikonia, sorry, I might have mistaken something in such case. anyway, I mean without breaking system13:15
Eduard_Munteanumike-zal2, depends on the disk layout and partitioning13:15
mike-zal2so just boot to another linux, resize partition and it will run?13:15
ikoniamike-zal2: if you have free space to either side of the partition you want to grow, you can grow it from a livecd13:15
ikoniamike-zal2: boot from a media that is not using that partition13:15
mike-zal2have another distro on another partion so I can use it for that13:15
ikoniamike-zal2: is it the same disk ?13:16
_unreal_ikonia, are you using LV or extX partitions? if your using LV you'll beak something changing sizes13:16
mike-zal2yes, but different partition13:16
mike-zal2no encryption13:16
ikonia_unreal_: no you won't13:16
ikoniamike-zal2: then no - boot from live media13:16
mike-zal2ok, then from live13:16
_unreal_mike-zal2, just make sure your not exceeding your partition size meaning dont expand one and shrink an other where it over laps your written data. gparted wont let you but non gui partitioning programs may let you13:18
* _unreal_ learned the hard way many moons ago13:19
mike-zal2I just have empty partition for windows but haven't used it since over a year so I just delete it and expand this one on it.13:19
_unreal_then your all set13:20
mike-zal2ok. thanks. will be back later, if I succeed ;P13:20

ducassebunjee: what do you mean by 'su password'?13:43
Xplictsuper user?13:44
bunjeeducasse - Xplicit - yes - I'm just trying to figure out how to setup a super user password13:45
SchrodingersScat!root | bunjee13:45
ubottubunjee: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo13:45
ducasse!root | bunjee13:45
SchrodingersScatbunjee: use sudo and it's the same as your user password if you've the right privileges13:46
bunjeeokay - so I don't need an su password?13:47
ducassebunjee: no13:47

Droi have an apple disk image (dmg) i want to convert it to iso, any idea how can i do that in ubuntu?13:53
fujisandoes ubuntu snoop on users?13:54
fujisanis it truly free Richard Stallman told me to come here and ask the developers13:55
fujisanim here for freedom13:55
fujisanis ubuntu ethical?13:56
mike-zalfujisan, here are only normal users, no devs13:56
fujisanwe should unite13:56
ducasseDro: look at dmg2img and go from there. you would need to convert from hfsplus to is9660.13:56
pauljwand we're all snooping on you, fujisan13:56
fujisanRichard Stallman addressed that ubuntu13:56
fujisanisnt ethical13:56
fujisannot truly free snooping on the users13:57
mike-zalit's outdated discussion13:57
Droducasse, i converted it to img, but can't make an iso file :s13:57
blackbird1Dro, sudo dd if=/dev/sdaX of=/home/username/image.iso13:57
fujisanhas it been addressed and fixed?13:57
mike-zalfujisan, depends on what you mean by snooping but web and amazon searches are off by default now13:57
ducasseDro: no, because it's hfsplus. you need to convert to iso9660.13:57
Droducasse, how can i do that?13:58
fujisanand offering software that isnt truly free13:58
Droducasse, i tried to convert it with dmg2img, i got an img file, then i mounted it13:58
fujisanthanks mike-zal13:58
ducasseDro: easiest way is to just copy the files in the image and build an iso image from that.13:58
Drothen i created an iso file using mkisof (or something like that)..13:58
fujisanim banned from a lot of ubuntu channels13:59
fujisanbut i agree with Stallman13:59
Drowell at last the iso is not working13:59
blackbird1Dro, or GUI by using Brasero Disc Burner13:59
fujisanthat's probably why13:59
pauljwfujisan, you should use stallman's hurd, oh wait, after 30+ years he still doesn't have it right.  so much for his genius...13:59
fujisanthere is no freedom on irc13:59
ducasse!ot | fujisan13:59
ubottufujisan: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please register with NickServ (see /msg ubottu !register) and use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!13:59
mike-zalfujisan, ubuntu is company based not community based. you can't expect from it to listen to community. it's not a democracy. they have a user target and try to adjust their distro to that target. if you want community based distro, use mint for example13:59
fujisanit's not free speech if i speak something that ubuntu doesnt like i end up banned quieted muted14:00
ducassefujisan: no, you're just off topic.14:00
fujisanhere comes the irony im banned from #ubuntu-offtopic14:00
fujisanbut not ubuntu -_-14:00
mike-zalfujisan, don't see any issue. there is plenty of choice out there. doesn't like canonical policy? use different distro. this is so simple. freedom of choice. stallman sees only one way and calls it freedom... no thanks. there is a room for paid and free software.14:01

Chris___Hello guys, got a quick question regarding Nameservers14:39
dippnWhat's up?14:39
Chris___So, I have setup LAMP on my ubuntu machine and installed typo3 and so on14:40
Chris___that worked. now i am trying to get my website14:40
javier_buenas tardes14:40
Chris___to reach my ubuntu machine14:40
ikoniastill waiting for the name server question.....14:41
Chris___So, how can I setup my Ubuntu machine that NS1.mydomain.com and NS2.mydomain.com are on my server IP14:41
ikoniathats nothing to do with ubuntu14:42
ikoniayou talk to who ever hosts your domains dns and ask them to update the name server record14:42
Chris___what are the correct nameservers then, so people connect to my ubuntu server?14:43
ikoniaChris___: they correct name servers ?14:43
ikoniathey are the ones that hosts your domain dns14:43
dippnChris___, you need two things, a DNS server with the NS records in the zone file for the mydomain.com. And you need the Registrar to create 'custom/child/whatever nameservers' for your domain that point the ns1 / ns2 sub domains to that DNS server14:44
Chris___So my registrar is the one with the DNS server?14:44
ikoniaChris___: I'd advise you not to try to host dns - you dont seem to know how it works, contact your ISP registrar and ask them if they have a dns service14:44
dippnwell, they probably have one, but not what you're looking for14:45
ikoniaChris___: what's the domain ?14:45
dippnDo you have a virtualized dedicated server or actual dedicated server? Or are you running this off your computer or something?14:45
dippnAre you paying your web host for a server basically?14:45
Chris___I have rented an ubuntu VPS.14:45
dippnAnd doy ou have the domain name registered through the same company?14:45
Chris___My hoster only has my domain, I have no server from them.14:45
Chris___Nope, two different companies14:45
ikoniaChris___: what is the domain14:45
dippnok, talk to who you rented the server from, they might help you set up nameservers14:46
dippnon your ubuntu server14:46
dippnYou also need to talk to the company you registered te domain through, they will need to create those 'custom nameservers' at the registrar, but that will only work after your DNS server is set up on the ubuntu server14:46
ikoniaChris___: 1ahosting.ch are who you need to contact14:46
Chris___I cannot set up a nameserver by my own using the terminal, in this case ?14:46
ikoniaChris___: contact them, for help14:47
dippnYou can, but what ikonia said14:47
ikoniathis isnt really an ubuntu problem14:47
dippnI'd personally recommend BIND if you don't already have a DNS service set up14:47
ikoniaI strongly recommend you not to look at that14:47
ikoniaand contact a1hosting, they hold your name server record and appear to have a dns service14:48
ikoniaask then14:48
Chris___I am sorry ikonia, I do not have 1ahosting anymore, back then I had server and domain from them. Now I transfered domain to another company and I am trying to use my website on a VPS from another company14:48
ikoniaChris___: they hold your dns record14:48
ikoniaso you HAVE to conact them14:48
ikoniaI suggest you ask them to use their dns service14:48
Chris___How is this possible? I transferred my domain from 1ahosting to another company [highly sorry for off-topic]14:50
ikoniabecause you don't understand how dns works14:50
ikoniathats how it's possible14:50
ikoniathe hosting is nothing to do with it14:50
ikoniathe quicker you conact A1hosting and ask them / pay them to use their dns service, the quicker you'll be working14:51
Chris___I think the problem is that it hasn't been 24 hours when i changed the DNS settings14:52
ikoniaI don't think thats the problem14:52
ikoniabut "ok"14:52
Chris___the reason why you see 1ahosting, is because the nameserver is still pointing to ns1.1ahosting.ch and ns2.1ahosting.ch, am I right ?14:53
ikoniathe SOA is 1ahosting14:54
ikoniaas I've said the quicker you contact them the quicker you'll be working14:54
ikoniathis isn't really an ubuntu problem14:54
Chris___What you don't understand is that I am not trying to use their DNS server, rather want to setup my own DNS server, which is the same machine as my website (sorry if I am very unclear)14:55
afidegnumi m trying to test an email functionality on my local pc where i can send email to n users  i.e   user1@hocalhost   up to n accounts. what is the best tool for that?14:55
ikoniaChris___: you should not setup your own dns server14:56
ikoniause theirs14:56
ikoniathe world does not need another lame server14:56
ikoniaand you can't set it up on 1 server14:56
ikoniahence why you should use their prebuilt and internet supported infrastructure14:56
Chris___okay, i get that14:56
ikoniaafidegnum: you need an MTA14:57
BluesKajHi all14:57
ikoniaif it's your local PC, setup an MTA that relays out via your isp14:57
marounhi guys14:57
Chris___ikonia, so basically i should use their webserver, and I should point only my webpage to my vps?14:59
Chris___i should use their nameserver*14:59

ryffojeHey guys I have been having a problem lately installing ubuntu Desktop. I installed the OS onto a usb and boot from the USB then once the screen turn black it says The version that I am attempting to install and hangs there nothing else happens does anyone know how to fix this? It would be greatly appreaciated15:21
Viraxisryffoje: Just to clarify: your are trying to install from a USB to your HDD/SSD right?15:22
ryffojeYes I am15:22
Viraxisokay. the most common issues would be a wrong iso (architecture, driver versions) or using a wrong flashing-tool for the usb-drive15:23
Viraxiswhich flash tool did you use?15:23
ryffojeOh okay I have attempted with many flashing tools. They all are not able to flash the usb for some reason. The only one that seems to work is PowerISO. The one that Ubuntu reccomends to use has a problem extracting the ISO file15:24
bekksyou dont ned any other flashing tools rather tan cp or dd for current ubuntu iso images.15:27
O_GovindaWhen I connect my android phone (running Lollipop), I get "Error initializing camera: -53: Could not claim the USB device" and doesn't show my the files on the device, as it used to. Ubuntu 16.04. Same problem with 14.04. At one point this started happening, and now it happens all the time. How to get Uubuntu back to seeing the phone as a storage device, not a camera?15:27
ryffojeSo how do I flash it?15:27
Viraxisbekks : yeah true, but most people use graphical tools, and they often screw up your drive15:28
bekksViraxis: People kill their data with graphical tools, tools.15:28
ViraxisO_Govinda : could it be that your android device reverted to PTP instead of MTP for data transfer?15:29
ViraxisI know that it happens with my nexus sometimes: I set it to MTP, and it reverts to charging-only15:30
O_Govinda@Viraxis: Could be. But I don't see a setting on my phone to check this or change it.15:30
ViraxisO_Govinda : You can either set this from the developer options, or via the notification that should show up when you connect your phone to a computer15:30
ryffojeViraxis do you have any reccomended flashing tools?15:31
R13oseHow do I fix this error: http://pastebin.com/Tk3evg12 ?15:32
O_GovindaViraxis: I don't see "Developer options" (have looked hard). Under "Storage" there's "Unmount SD card" with the subtext "MTP or PHP function is active." But all of that is greyed out.15:32
Viraxisryffoje : either search for a tutorial on how to do it via the command line (google is your friend), or use UNetbootin if you're flashing from linux, or LiLi USB wheb flashing from windows15:33
ViraxisI've used both tools, and they worked fine for me15:33
ryffojeWhich ones?15:34
OerHeksR13ose, what were you doing when you got that?15:34

ikoniathey launcher isn't aware of that location15:39
ikoniaI'm pretty sure there was a KeePassX package in ubuntu15:39
Apteryxikonia: It's awfully behind, at least for 14.04.04 (0.4.3 and they are now at 2.0.2).15:40
=== not_phunyguy is now known as phunyguy
ViraxisApteryx : in that case you'll need to add the entry to the laucher yourself. What DE are you using?15:41
ApteryxViraxis: Unity. There is an entry in the launcher already, it's just that the icon is missing (I get a generic grey rectangle in its place).15:41
R13oseminimec OerHeks thanks that helped15:42
O_GovindaViraxis: Got the developer options. (5 clicks on "Build Number"). Awesome. But I don't see any setting for MTP/PTP.15:42
ApteryxViraxis: I could probably sort it out by copying any keepassx.png under /usr/share/pixmaps/, but I'd like to know if there is a better way to fix it (such as telling the desktop to look for icons under /usr/local/share/icons as well).15:43
ikoniaApteryx: do you really NEED the later version15:43
ikoniaor do you just want it because it's later15:43
ViraxisO_Govinda : it's called "USB Connection Mode" or something like that (my phone is in Swedish). On my device it's about halfway down the list15:43
Apteryxikonia: They fixed a critical security issue recently, in the 2.0 series. I'd rather use something up to date for something as sensitive as storing passwords.15:44
ikoniaApteryx: are you sure the fixes aren't backported15:44
skinuxSo, I noticed online they are distributing 16.04.115:44
ikoniaas compiling it youself doesn't really mean "secure"15:45

ubottuThe automatic LTS upgrade from 14.04 to 16.04 was scheduled when 16.04.1 LTS was released on July 21st, but has been postponed for one week due to final bug testing.15:45
Apteryxikonia: 0.4.3 was released in 2010... Not sure they even *can* backport anything to it.15:46
ViraxisApteryx : this is an official article on setting up application launchers with unity. Also covers icons. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UnityLaunchersAndDesktopFiles15:46
skinuxSo that means I cannot get the upgrade to work or just means they prefer I don't do it.15:46
ikoniaskinux: it means the upgrade process has not been released yet15:46
skinuxOkay, so it literally won't work yet15:46

OerHeksphotorec makes folders with 500 found files, which you need to sort and rename yourself.16:52
ruisilvaso, this is an almost hopeless situation, right?16:52
ducasseruisilva: as i said, send it to professionals if the data is important.16:52

danielboston26does anyone know if ubuntu/debian will work on the new hp spectre17:29
OerHeksdanielboston26, with such minimal info, nobody can tell for sure. what hp spectre?17:31
danielboston26its the brand new one it doesn't have a model number as i can tell17:31
danielboston26"worlds thinnest laptop"17:32
=== Guest48931 is now known as irinix
danielboston26its the macbook compeditor17:32
OerHekscome back when you have more details then.17:32
danielboston26i can't seem to find a model number for it was just wondering if anyone else here is using one17:32
danielboston26i think its just called the spectre17:34
danielboston2613-v011d is the model number17:36
danielboston26at least thats the model number bestbuy has listed17:38
OerHeksskylake, with Intel® HD Graphics 530. i think it will work.17:39
pnwiseHP made terrible consumer products, most laptops I have see overheat very easily17:40
pnwiseubuntu should work fine17:40
danielboston26this laptop is nice i like it17:40
pnwisebest way to test is to make bootatble usb and go test it on the  store17:40
danielboston26battery life is horrible but just keep it plugged in and its fine17:40
OerHekspersonally i think Hp is fine, but experience may vary17:40
danielboston26i would never buy a hp computer or reccomend one till now17:41
danielboston26this is very nice17:41
danielboston26i think breaking up the company worked for them17:41
pnwiseI have aonly terrible experience with HP. There was that series laptops that technicians didn't want to even open for cleaning because they are so crappy they stop working after that17:41
pnwisecan't remember the name17:42
danielboston26pnwise i know what your talking about17:42
danielboston26this pc is very different17:42
danielboston26its my main machine besides my gaming pc17:43
danielboston26i havn't had one issue with it other then battery life17:43
danielboston269 hours my ass more then 217:43
pnwiseIf you want quality go buy XPS, thinpad, asus. Heck even macs are better17:43
pnwiseThat's my opinion17:43
nedstarki avoid all consumer-grade laptops and desktops17:43
danielboston26i agree but i have had zero problems17:44
danielboston26so in my experince it works for me17:44
danielboston26nedstark i usually do as well but this computer got really good reviews so decided to give it a try17:45
BenderRodrigueznedstark: and what constitutes a "non-customer grade" laptop?17:45
nedstarkDell XPS is business grade17:45
pnwisewell I didn't have usually the first year, then some mb problem will happen like video chip will unsolder17:45
danielboston26and its not priced at consumer level17:45
nedstarkBenderRodriguez, you can tell by whether they sell it on their business sales website17:45
nedstarkthe real difference is its usually higher quality, no crapware17:46
danielboston26pnwise ive had it since i want to say april17:46
danielboston26now if it will break in a year i don't know17:46
nedstarkbetter in terms of durability and lifespan17:46
BenderRodrigueznedstark: you do realize the internal components are the same and you're simply paying extra because of the supposed "business" use case, right?17:46
BenderRodriguezYou're much better off with gaming laptop17:46
danielboston26i speant $1200 on this i consider it "prosumer"17:46
BenderRodriguezSimply because the price to performance ration is much better17:46
pnwiseBenderRodriguez, that is not true, I have seen the internal of quite few laptops17:47
pnwiseand while chips are the same, there is a lot more that makes the difference17:47
OerHekslot of FUD rolling by ..17:47
danielboston26as i say so far zero issues other then battery life not even close to what they say17:47
nedstarkBenderRodriguez, not usually, there are many different specs, and some have higher failure rates than others.  oem's make business laptops so they can take the abuse of corporate travel17:47
BenderRodriguezI bought $1300 gaming laptop two years ago and it STILL has better specs compared to top of the line Macbooks or Dell/Lenovo business notebooks17:47
danielboston26if thats a bios or power management issue idk17:47
danielboston26it doesn't really bother me17:47
BenderRodrigueznedstark: OEMs make business laptops in order to sell you bulk order discounts and package in some support with it17:48
danielboston26nedstark i came from macs i would never buy a lenovo because of superfish but i was considering a dell17:48
BenderRodriguezand essentially charge whatever they want as they know businesses can afford it17:48
nedstarkBenderRodriguez, thats only part of what they do17:48
danielboston26nedstark i probably spent about the same amount of money on this that i would of a dell17:48
danielboston26i didn't have $2500 for another mac17:49
danielboston26plus the new macbook pro's aren't out yet17:49
nedstarkmac laptops are built to business-grade too, and they charge more, you get what you pay for17:49
danielboston26nedstark excatly17:49
nedstarkapple doesn't have separate lines for consumers, its all expensive17:49
danielboston26nedstark ive been a mac user for 20+ years17:50

bozonius2no, I am working 5.0.26.   I was asking if I should fallback to 5.0.16 GA; there was a problem for a while where the system did not operate correctly using 5.0.18 and 5.0.20.  There was an advisory about this for Ubuntu ?18:13

ubuntu_failNvidia problem - horrible framerates, poor video playback. can't get it to work right (logs in and manages the desktop, but not much more). Weird thing is - it used to work well, and now it doesnt19:08
ubuntu_failreisio: nouveau works but is SUPER slow on 3d acceleration19:09
ducasse_Crash_: the lda will use whatever mailbox tree dovecot already uses, that's what you asked for.19:09
reisioubuntu_fail: which you use for what, exactly?19:10
reisioubuntu_fail: dolphins in your desktop?19:10
ubuntu_failNvidia problem: I reinstalled graphics-ppa 367 drivers - no luck (still 4-5fps). I then uninstalled virtualbox (unrelated update) - and I was getting 60fps. I rebooted, now it's back to 4-5fps19:10
ubuntu_failreisio: video encoding, games, etc. It's not just 3D issue: video playback is really choppy19:11

HappySomethingSohow do I fix this19:14
ubuntu_failreisio: 367.3519:15
reisioHappySomethingSo: probably just need to mod your grub.cfg19:15
HappySomethingSoreisio: how?19:15
reisioHappySomethingSo: pastebin this stuff to somewhere: /etc/fstab, sudo lsblk -f, /boot/grub/grub.cfg19:15

Bent0Did something change with permissions to /home in 16.04.1? After dist-upgrading MySQL wont start using service mysql start. My datadir is in /home/mysql. Starting it manually works and moving the datadir to ANYTHING other than /home works too19:18
reisioubuntu_fail: maybe you shouldn't19:18
OerHeksbaprath, else reinstall chrome?19:18

reisioHappySomethingSo: sudo cat /etc/fstab | pastebinit19:21
reisioHappySomethingSo: etc.19:21
HappySomethingSooh ok, now it does show something19:22
ducasseBent0: check if mysql runs under apparmor, maybe it blocks access to /home. there should be log messages if that is the case.19:22
Bashing-omBent0: Yeah, things changed in respect to mysql .. see the release notes for 16.04 .19:22
HappySomethingSoreisio:  I'll have to connect to the internet though,just a minute19:22
Bent0ducasse No apparmor is disabled I apt purged it19:23
Bent0Bashing-om I was looking for them but did not see anything related to mysql19:24

ducasseBent0: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes/#MySQL_5.719:25
OerHeksc. in the standard chrome repo*19:25
Bashing-omBent0: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes >> Users with customised MySQL server configurations may hit a maintainer script error on upgrade due to changed configuration directives in MySQL 5.7. This will need to be fixed up manually. See the general MySQL update notes for details and instructions on fixing one common case of this.19:25
Bent0Bashing-om ducasse: I´m running MariaDB wit their repo by the way. Worked fine on 16.04 before the .1 release.19:27

TendiesHi i'm trying to setup a vpn server on ubuntu server 14.04 with a usb ethernet adapter and i'm really lost for that to do. i got it working on the builtin ethernet eth0 but cant get it for eth1.19:32
bekksSo plugin the adapter and take a look at dmesg and ifconfig -a19:33
ducasseBent0: their repo? try the mariadb channel.19:33
Tendiesbekks: ifconfig -a shows the eth1 device19:33
reisioTendies: you want it as a secondary?19:33
HappySomethingSoreisio: I can' connect to the internet19:33
Bent0ducasse: No anwer. Also this happened after upgrading to .0119:33
Tendiesi want all traffic to go through eth1, reisio19:33
bekksTendies: So it is detected and justneeds to be configured.19:33
HappySomethingSoreisio:  Can I fix this without pastebin?19:34
HappySomethingSoreisio: Or can I delete ubuntu and go back to windows?19:34
Tendiesi tried adding it in /etc/network/interfaces but it didnt do anything19:34
bekksTendies: How did you add it there?19:34
Tendiesi just did what it had for eth0 already and replaced eth0 with eth119:35
Tendiesauto eth1, iface eth1 inet dhcp19:35
Bent0ducasse: Funny thing is. When I symlink /home to the new location I moved mysql (/ssd) and edit my.cnf to look for /ssd it still wont start. Remove the symlink and it works19:35
helghareeb@HappySomethingSo Going back to windows is useless19:35
bekksTendies: And what "did not work" then?19:35
SchrodingersScatbaprath: google dropped support for 32-bit, so there's really only the one option :)19:35
ducassebekks: it's just more likely others there also use that repo, only the official repos are supported here. ofc you could also try #ubuntu-server, but i imagine they'll say the same thing...19:35
bekksTendies: Did you check with ifconfig -a and netstat -rn after changing that and restarting networking?19:35
HappySomethingSohelghareeb: how so?19:36
Tendieshow can i restart networking?19:36
ioriabaprath,  if you run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade ?19:36
helghareebHappySOmethingSo Ubuntu is doing really great. They enhanced the user experience a lot. Though they still struggle in the mobile world, Microsoft has gone through tough times on the mobile side also19:37
helghareebHappySomethingSo: Everything can be managed here, with some help and search19:38
HappySomethingSohelghareeb: I wouldn't say it's doing great when if you install it to dual boot it prevents the other OS from booting at all19:38
helghareebHappySOmethingSo: Ubuntu prevented another OS from booting?19:38
HappySomethingSohelghareeb: windows works without help search nor work, I just wanted to install ubuntu to use a program that won't run without it and now >I can't boot into windows at all19:39
HappySomethingSoI would say that's quite the failing on ubuntus side19:39
ducasseHappySomethingSo: have you any idea how often windows installs have prevented linux from booting for people over the years? :)19:39
baprathioria: http://paste.ubuntu.com/20781502/19:40
Tendiesall i see from netstat -rn is stuff on tun0 thats for openvpn19:40
helghareebHappySomethingSo: Let's review the installation process you went through, to make sure that you did not remove the Windows installation. If it is still there, I am sure you can reach it, may be with some tweaks19:40
reisioHappySomethingSo: it's just a simple configuration issue19:40
reisioHappySomethingSo: did you pastebin those three things?19:40
HappySomethingSoreisio: I don't have internet19:41
helghareebHappySomethingSo: ducasse: +119:41
reisioHappySomethingSo: you're on IRC, so you clearly have19:41
HappySomethingSocan I reslolve this without pastebin?19:41
HappySomethingSoreisio: I'm on another pc19:41
reisioHappySomethingSo: dump those three things to text files, copy them over to this box, put them online19:41
HappySomethingSoit'll take a while though19:42
reisioHappySomethingSo: probably your best option19:42
reisioHappySomethingSo: why don't you have networking on the box?19:42

_Crash_ducasse, completely out of ideas.. I even tried setting mail_home = /var/vmail/%d/%n AND mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir inside the dovecot conf19:46
ioriabaprath,  have you tried the Guest Account ?19:47
_Crash_ducasse, but I can receive emails fine, it just goes to my user on the linux system instead inside /var/mail/user19:47
ducasse_Crash_: you wanted your mta to deliver mail to dovecot, right? dovecot mailboxes were already existing?19:47
baprathioria, I have remove it earliar.19:48
_Crash_ducasse, not sure what you mean by "mta" but the /var/vmail/domain/user exits, yes19:48
_Crash_just no mail going in there19:48
ducasse_Crash_: mta = mail transfer agent = whatever handles outgoing mail.19:48
ioriabaprath, meaning ?19:49
ubuntu_failBashing-om: hello! when I uninstalled virtualbox and rebooted, the nvidia side worked great for 1 boot - I rebooted and it went slow again (haven't reinstalled anything). Sounds like nvidia is having some configuration/boot up issue... want to take another stab at it?19:49
HappySomethingSoreisio: I don't know, I input the password but it ignores the connection19:49
baprathdisable the guest login19:49
ioriabaprath, oh, ok19:49
ioriabaprath,  maybe a new user ...19:49
baprathioria, yes I am.19:50
ap916Guys, Is anyone facing the problem of unity crashing in Ubuntu 16.04 when windows animations are changed ?19:50
ioriabaprath,  no, i mean create a new user :)19:50
_Crash_ducasse, any ideas?19:51
nicomachusis there a way to easily convert the main body text of a bunch of webpages to PDF or some type of word doc?19:51
ducasse_Crash_: assuming that dovecot already has mailboxes, you should not be touching the dovecot config now at all. you should be configuring your mta (postfix or whatever) to use the dovecot lda for local delivery, that will put mail in the dovecot mailboxes.19:52
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: I do not mind .. but we are seriously hampered in that I know nothing of how the VM interfaces . not a clue .19:52
_Crash_ducasse, so dovecot uses the /var/vmail dir right?19:53
iorianicomachus, html ?19:53
reisioHappySomethingSo: does networking work from the install media? You could use that temporarily ('Try Ubuntu')19:53
HappySomethingSoreisio: helghareeb ducasse http://pastebin.com/ZsiVB8uY19:54
ducasse_Crash_: i don't know your particular setup, but you should not need to care about where dovecot stores mail right now. just tell the mta to deliver mail to dovecot, and it will take care of the rest.19:54
nicomachusioria: yes. the pages are downloading right now via wget, but I need to get them into a readable format.19:54

HappySomethingSoreisio: it doesn't19:54
ducasse_Crash_: what handles outgoing mail - postfix?19:55
_Crash_I presume so19:55
nicomachusioria: ok. seems to be the consensus.19:55
iorianicomachus,  good luck19:55
ubuntu_failBashing-om: I don't think it's VM. I think when I removed it it redid something with dkms/boot options/ureadahead that let it owrk, and after that first boot it reconfigured it wrong again.19:55
_Crash_ducasse, I presume so19:56
ducasse_Crash_: you don't know what handles outgoing mail, but you know your server does?19:56
ubuntu_failBashing-om: I think there is some module/option/configuration option that is screwing things up19:56
_Crash_ducasse, it's whatever is the standard setup for postfix and dovecot, like I said, I just followed the Perfect Server Tutorial for Ubuntu 16.0419:56
ducasse_Crash_: ok, then this is what you want: http://wiki2.dovecot.org/LDA/Postfix19:57
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: We are back to " sudo dkms status " ? see if all is compatible now .19:57
Tendieshow can i verify a usb ethernet device in ubuntu is working? it shows as being connected to my network but i can't ping it19:57

Tendiesits on ifconfig -a but so is eth0 which isnt even connected19:58
bekksTendies: Which is expected and ok.19:59
ducasse_Crash_: that should tell you all you need to know. i need to go, but if you need more help just ask in the channel, or try #ubuntu-server if nobody knows.19:59
_Crash_ducasse, alright, ty!19:59
Tendiesthen on netstat, it shows dest gateway for eth0 and eth1, which doesn19:59
Tendiest seem right19:59

bekksTendies: Pastebin the entire output please.20:00
ducasse_Crash_: np. i use this setup myself, and it works like a charm. good luck :)20:00
HappySomethingSoreisio: can it be fixed? if not, can I restore windows or will I have to start from scratch?20:00
_Crash_ducasse, I've used this tuts inb the past and they've worked fine lol, just this time it doesn't want to work20:00
Tendiesbekks: i can't exactly paste it20:01
bekksTendies: you need to.20:01
bozonius2bekk:  Restarted the pulseaudio server on host, rebooted Ubuntu VM, works again!20:01
bekksTendies: Otherwise the exact state isnt clear.20:01
bekksbozonius2: Nice :)20:01
reisioHappySomethingSo: I think I've already told you a number of times, you almost certainly have a simple misconfiguration alone20:02
reisioHappySomethingSo: if you want help, you need to show someone those three items I mentioend20:02
bozonius2I had noticed error messages in /var/log/messages saying pulse could not connect...I am assuming to the VM.20:02
HappySomethingSoI sent you a pastebin20:02
reisioHappySomethingSo: if networking works from the Ubuntu live OS, booting that up will be the simplest20:02
bozonius2I will try to remember this solution next time.20:02
reisioHappySomethingSo: where?20:02
HappySomethingSoreisio:  http://pastebin.com/ZsiVB8uY20:02

ubuntu_failBashing-om: and here is the syslog file from when I rebooted after removing virtualbox - and Nvidia worked great:  http://termbin.com/7ckk20:08
Tendiesbekks: that's from openvpn20:08
bekksTendies: why is eth0 still configured after you told us you disabled it?20:09
Tendiesi didnt say i disabled it, i just unplugged the ethernet from it20:09
bekksTendies: Why didnt you disable it?20:10
Tendieshow do i disable it20:10
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: I see no faults in those either . Does the log file relate any issues ?20:10
HappySomethingSoreisio: did you manage to read it?20:11
bekksTendies: you said you replaced eth0 with eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces - did you restart networking or your box?20:11
mircx1Hello i want please ask something this possible run avocode in ubuntu?20:11
bekksmircx1: whats "avocode"?20:12
ubuntu_failBashing-om: the only thing I can think of is that removing VM made it remove/update the linux-headers. is there a way to manually force a rebuild of the linux-headers? apparently the nvidia process can fail to fix them appropriately20:12
mircx1someone try run file and i want to know is this possible run that20:12
bekksmircx1: we have too less information to answer that question.20:13
mircx1i ask if this possible run that?20:13
mircx1beacuse i try write in apt-search and i no see nothing20:14
bekksHow can we answer that if you didnt even tell us what "avocode" is?20:14
mircx1ok on sec i told to you20:14
bekksmircx1: you didnt :)20:14
reisioHappySomethingSo: yeah20:15
mircx1looking for a 32 bit version of avocode20:15
bekksmircx1: What is "avocode"?20:15
HappySomethingSoreisio: what should I do?20:15
k1l_mircx1: its propriate software. ask them20:15
reisioHappySomethingSo: U/EFI is kind of a nightmare; you might want to ask #windows for instructions on recovering your boot setup for Windows, and then once you have Windows booting, you can fix Ubuntu again (you can even have Windows boot Ubuntu instead of vice versa, which is not ideal, but a non-horrible stopgap)20:16
reisioHappySomethingSo: it's quite simpler to dual boot with two separate disks, and quite simpler to get on with life with only ONE operating system rather than two or more, FYI20:16
HappySomethingSoreisio: that's not very promisiong at all20:16
OerHeksmircx1, as avocode is Commercial, sure it is not in our repos. they seems to have .deb packages.20:16
HappySomethingSoreisio: Can I get rid of ubuntu and return to windows?20:16
OerHeksmircx1, and if you look carefull, 64 bit deb only20:17
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Still reading the syslog .. as to kernels, ' dpkg -l |grep linux- ' . We see what is .20:18

deitarionI have a Lubuntu 15.04 VM in VirtualBox and, after rebooting to apply updates, it ignores left-clicking at the X11 level (cat /dev/input/event5 recognizes both buttons but xev sees only right clicks). Has anyone seen and solved this? Google is only giving me very old results.20:41
deitarion(Given that this is common infrastructure, I thought I'd ask in the much more populated channel)20:41
deitarions/it ignores/it has started to ignore/20:42
bekks!15.04 | deitarion20:42
ubottudeitarion: Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) was the 22nd release of Ubuntu. Support ended on February 4, 2016. See !eol, !eolupgrade and http://ubottu.com/y/vivid20:42
deitarionAhh. Then I'll just roll the VM back to a version before the security updates broke my mouse. I don't have time to play around with this.20:43
de-factodeitarion what was updated? have you installed the latest guest additions with the correct version?20:43

neldogzikonia, there were a couple of things that I had a difficult time understanding such as if it is necessary to create partitions and prepping disks20:52
neldogzhopefully i captured everything20:53
ikoniaI don't think it's a great guide20:53
ikoniaI think it has some bad practices in it20:53
ikoniaand I don't think it's something that needs a guide - it's 2 minutes work and well documented20:53
ikoniaI don't think it's useful to just blindly post it into an IRC channel, thats not really going to help anyone20:54
Hanumaanis 16.04.1 arrived? can one update commandline in ubuntu?20:54
neldogzikonia, thanks for the feedback. I will work to make it better.20:54
ubuntu_failhaving trouble getting Nvidia drivers to work - I get a low res desktop, and a segfault when I try to log out and back in20:54
ikoniaHanumaan: it is release, however the upgrade process is delayed by a week20:54
neldogzikonia, can you share with me what you consider bad practices?20:54
ikoniaubuntu_fail: did you get the drivers from nvidia.com or ubuntu software center20:55
ubuntu_failikonia: graphics ppa, nvidia-36720:55
ubuntu_failikonia: geforce 965M on an intel skylake20:55
ikonianeldogz: all your prep work with things like wipe bs, you go over the top with your dd blanking stuff, there are pros/cons to partitioning a meta device over a physical disk and raiding the partition, you don't reference any of that,20:56
ikoniaubuntu_fail: is the nvidia module getting loaded20:56
neldogzikonia, ah got it, thanks! I appreciate it.20:56
ubuntu_failikonia: see lsmod:    http://termbin.com/kb6e20:57
ikoniaubuntu_fail: just answer the question20:57
ikoniaubuntu_fail: is the nvidia module loaded20:57
ubuntu_failikonia: i think so - not sure how to confirm20:57
ikoniayou should see it in lsmod20:57
Tendiesbekks: http://pastebin.com/Eg0FXMKU20:57
ikoniaTendies: your eth0 and eth1 have the same ip20:58
ikoniaTendies: that will never work20:58
Tendieseth0 is disabled20:58
ikoniadoesn't look disabled20:58
Tendiesor i removed it from interfaces file20:58
bekksTendies: It will not work.20:58
ikonialooks like the interface is up20:59
ubuntu_failikonia: then yes - but under "used by", it says 8220:59
ikoniaubuntu_fail: so in the xorg logs, does it show as using the nvidia module ?20:59
Tendiesso how do i disable it, once again20:59
ikoniaTendies: did you reboot as bekks told you20:59
ikoniaso it's not in  the interfaes file, you rebooted and it's come up configured exactly the same as eth121:00
ikoniathat seems unlikley21:00
Tendiesoops i typed it wrong21:00
ikoniayou type what wrong21:00
Tendiesjust ignore the inet line on eth021:00
Tendiesits just not there21:00
ikoniaerr no21:00
ikoniait is there21:00
Tendiesi typed that21:00
ikoniawhat ?21:01
Tendiesim troubleshooting the server which is not online, so i can't exactly pastebin it21:01
ikoniabut eth0 is stil there21:01
ikoniaif you typed it or pastebin'd it21:02
ikoniait's still there21:02
Tendiesi thought you meant the inet addr line was the problem21:02
ikoniait is21:02
ikoniait's the same ip21:02
Tendiesthat line, in the actual output, is not there. i mistyped that.21:02
ikoniathis all sounds very dubious21:02
ikoniaTendies: why not install ubuntu (desktop) and just use sane desktop tools21:03
ikoniait'e clear you're not a confident linux user, why not make it easy on yourself21:03
ikonianetwork manager would make this 3 clicks21:03
ubuntu_failikonia: yes, xorg loads nvidia21:03
ikoniaubuntu_fail: ok, so are there any "EE" lines21:03
ikoniaubuntu_fail: and then secondary any "WW" warning lines21:04
Tendiesthere i fixed it http://pastebin.com/zYv2Gis021:04
ikoniaTendies: got to be honest, - I'm not %100 sure I believe what you are typing21:05
ikoniaas you've also changed the BROADCAST line21:05
Tendiesi realized that was different in the actual one just now, so i changed it21:05
ikoniaTendies: my advice to you, stop messing around with something you dont understand, get ubuntu desktop on there and start using your machine with ease and confidence21:05
Tendieshow about you stop giving me completely useless input like OH INSTALL A DIFFERENT OS21:06
ikoniaI didn't say a different OS21:06
ikoniaI said a desktop on the same OS21:06
ikoniathere is nothing useless about that advice21:06
Tendiesit's no different, its a full reinstall21:06
ikoniaand typing in caps doesn't help you21:06
ikoniaTendies: no, it's not21:06
ikoniayou could just install the ubuntu-desktop package21:06
ikoniaor xubuntu-desktop or lubuntu-desktop package for something lighter21:06
Tendiesyeah let me get comfortable with it by not using it21:07
ikoniawell, you seem to be sprinting before walking21:07
ikoniaand the tools help you - they don't stop you learning21:07
Tendiesi use them a lot okay? now i'm using server21:09
Tendiesand it seems to be all in order now21:09
ikoniadoesn't look in order21:10
ikoniayou can stil use "a server" with the tools21:10
Tendieseth0 is not UP nor RUNNING, and the vpn connects21:10
ikoniaso what's hte problem then ?21:10
ikoniaif it's working as you expect, what's the isue21:10
Tendiesit previously wasn't, now it does. i assume removing the eth0 lines did the trick.21:10
ikoniaso what's the problem you need help with ?21:11
ikoniayou've basically moved the interface from eth0 to eth1 so it's not running dual homed, if thats what you wanted to do "great"21:11
Tendiesit's been solved by what you guys told me earlier21:12
ikonia"great" ?? so there is no need to show us pastebins if it's working21:13
ubuntu_failikonia: "unable to get display device for DPI computiation"21:13
ikoniaubuntu_fail: never seen that, I'd have to look up that error code21:13
Lokieanyone got a link for a good tutorial for either increasing the space in a live usb and / or for creating a persistant live usb?21:29
bekksLokie: Just install Ubuntu, and use your USB as install target.21:29
Lokiethat works?21:30
Lokieinstall it from where? live usb to itself? another usb?21:31
bekksLokie: you could use an install iso, another usb, or even debootstrap.21:33
Lokiebekks bear with me. Installing it to another usb I get it. The install iso not.21:34
OerHeksthe usbcreator can do that, Lokie , else https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent or https://help.ubuntu.com/community/mkusb/persistent21:34
akikLokie: all you need is two usb sticks if you go with that method21:35
bekksOr an installation cd (thus the iso) and just one USB.21:36
Lokiecopy over the data and fix the persistance21:36
bekksLokie: those are two different methods.21:37
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Sorry .. thunder storms and loss of power for a spell . What now is the graphic's status ?21:37
Lokiebekks I partially see it. So far the "easiest" one seems using the usb-creator-gtk21:38
bekksThats the method leaving you wit a persistent live usb, not with a full installation.21:38
Lokieso this one? Method 1: Installing Ubuntu directly to USB drive from installer CD21:40
bekksLokie: I'd go that way, yes.21:40
Lokiecare to elaborate why it's better than a simple persistant live usb21:41
bekksIt will give you a full install.21:41
akikLokie: you can partition your usb stick as you wish21:42
TheCynosureDoes any one know of a tool to convert an old .smi.bin into a .iso21:45
LokieI know I can in theory but I never did play with partitions21:45
Lokieso even this: "use a tmpfs in RAM for /tmp," looks tricky :p21:46
Lokiebut will have to try and see21:46

HappySomethingSoI'm trying to repair windows after trying to dual boot ubuntu. I have a windows repair cd which the computer should be booting from, but grubs appears, what can I do to boot from the repair cd?22:08
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: Change the boot order in your BIOS.22:09
trismextinct_potato: ahh there we go, you look like you have an old version from the xedgers ppa22:09
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: it's set to odd first22:09
extinct_potatotrism : ooh yeah, i remember installing something from them.22:09
trismextinct_potato: try: apt-get install libgles2-mesa/trusty; don't do it if it looks like it wants to remove alot of stuff22:09
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: it's correct, that's how I first installed ubuntu22:10
extinct_potatotrism : okay, will try to do it tomorrow as I have to go. Thank you sincerely!22:10
trismextinct_potato: it might be easier to add the edgers ppa again and then run ppa-purge on it22:10
trismextinct_potato: np good luck22:10
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: Ubuntu is not going to affect the BIOS in the machine. Therefore, either check/change the BIOS again, or, if the BIOS actually has a "boot menu", use that, and lastly, check that the CD/DVD drive and disk are clean. Sometimes even a fingerprint on the edge of the CD/DVD can cause issues...and lastly - something to think about - when was the last time that you actually booted that Windows CD?22:11
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: I just created it. I'm booting into grubs for some reason22:12
crafty1Boot priority is what you want in the bios22:12
ubuntu_failBashing-om: I have  fresh install of nvidia-367 from graphics ppa, the graphics on the desktop are still off, framerate on 3d graphics is slow. lsmod shows nvidia-367 (although it's used by 76??)22:12
crafty1You're not listening to what he's telling you22:12
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: Test it on another machine.22:12
HappySomethingSocrafty1: yeah, I've set that correctly to boot from the cd22:13
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: Test it on another machine.22:13
ubuntu_failBashing-om: http://termbin.com/cgnh22:13
crafty1If you have bootable media in CD drive and that is set to a higher priority then it will boot from the CD over Hard Disk22:13
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: it's not the "choose OS" grubs screen though, it's some sort of command prompt22:13
crafty1If for some reason that fails to work most BIOS have like F12 or something set to do a boot menu22:14
HappySomethingSocrafty1: I know, that's why I don't know why grubs is loading at all22:14
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Reading ,, even under the 361 driver .. many many erorrs in that syslog file !22:14
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: "Some sort of command prompt" - doesn't tell me much, mate.22:14
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: Minimal bash-like line editing is suppoted22:15
HappySomethingSoeach line starts with grub>22:15
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: " http://termbin.com/cgnh " >> 404 error .. try again .22:15
crafty1HappySomethingSo: Do you have Secure Boot disabled22:15
HappySomethingSocrafty1: yes22:15
crafty1CSM or Legacy Boot Enabled22:15
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: So that tells me that the "boot cd" may not actually be functioning properly.22:15
ubuntu_failBashing-om: maybe the acpi errors are causing nvidia failure?22:15
ubuntu_failBashing-om: termbin.com/cgnh22:16
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: it's a repair cd22:16
HappySomethingSobrand new22:16
ubuntu_failBashing-om: http://termbin.com/cqnh22:16
crafty1But prior to getting to that grub> prompt can you mash F12 to get a manual boot menu22:16
skinuxWill the latest Ubuntu install and run on 500MB of RAM?22:16
crafty1Thats GRUB rescue22:16
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: Since you booted and installed Ubuntu with a CD/DVD, and now you're trying to boot with a "Windows" repair CD, logic dictates that there is something wrong with the "Windows" boot CD...does it not?22:16
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: not really22:17
crafty1skinux: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements22:17
HappySomethingSocrafty: Ok so what do I do in grubs rescue to boot the CD?22:17
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: Test the boot CD in another machine. Check the CD itself for scratches/dust/fingerprints...22:17
crafty1If the media did not come from Microshaft its possible it was not burned properly.22:18
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Troubleshooting22:18
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: Ok I'll test it on another machine but I'm certain it's a grubs problem22:19
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: ' sudo lshw -C display ' Let's see that both drivers are loaded .22:19
crafty1HappySomethingSo: I recommend when you get to your BIOS splash mash F11 or F12 to get a boot menu.  Sometimes it will say what to mash22:19
crafty1Depends on the board manufacturer.  I have an MSI and its F1122:19
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: If you believe it's a problem with grub, then by all means, we'll go and kill the grub team, eh?22:19
HappySomethingSocrafty1: what for?22:19
crafty1This will present you with a screen where you can select HDD, CDROM etc.22:19
crafty1Its separate from the Boot Priority22:19
HappySomethingSocrafty1: oh I see ok I'll try that22:20
ubuntu_failBashing-om: http://termbin.com/292y22:20
crafty1HappySomethingSo: Let us know if you get there and select CDROM and it will not boot still22:20
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: you're getting a bit too defensive there22:20
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: I'm being sarcastic.22:20
HappySomethingSocrafty1: ok22:20
crafty1Hes just being goofy22:20
boozewoozHello... I tried to delete a file from my harddrive, and suddenly I got logged out. Now I cannot enter my account anymore, I created a new one, but I cannot unencrypt my original home folder, and the space used by that folder is marked as 'unused' on my harddrive :/ can someone please help?22:21
YankDownUnderLaws of Monday Mornings: Sarcasm is prevalent along with vast quantities of coffee and cigarettes.22:21
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: it's sunday here22:22
YankDownUnderboozewooz: What file? And have you don't a complete power-down and power-up on that machine?22:22
YankDownUnderHappySomethingSo: Well, I live in the future. I can tell you that the world has not ended yet.22:23
boozewoozYankDownUnder: yes, I did reboot the computer. The file was a chroot folder if I remember correctly..22:23
crafty1YankDownUnder: he needs to download more RAM I think22:23
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: thank goodness22:23
YankDownUndercrafty1: Yersh.22:24
HappySomethingSoYankDownUnder: I had a bad feeling about it ending tomorrow22:24
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Well .. that do affirm that the drivers are loaded for the respective cards . .. hummm ... What difference in performance do you see from the guest acount ??22:24
YankDownUnderboozewooz: And is it safe to assume that you've attempted a "rescue" from the grub boot menu, or have you not gotten that far yet...?22:24
ubuntu_failBashing-om: havent tried guest... lets see22:24
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: I do not really expect a user config issue .. but .. wont take but a bit to check !22:25
boozewoozYankDownUnder : i create a new account with "adduser", and I can login to that one fine... but all my data was inside the other (old) account, which i cannot login to anymore22:25
YankDownUnderboozewooz: What was the file you deleted?22:26
boozewoozYankDownUnder a folder with debootstrap, where I installed debian jessie inside.22:27
boozewoozYankDownUnder, But i think, somehow it got linked to my homefolder, and deleted with it, that also..22:27
YankDownUnderboozewooz: Something does not sound "right" in that description - because, as you stated, you deleted the "one folder/file" and your account no longer exists...hmm...22:27
boozewoozaccount exists, but, 1. cannot login to it, 2. contents inside /home/account used +- 90% of the harddisk, and now this space is empty...22:28
YankDownUnderboozewooz: What would be a smart thing to do, then, is to get a hold of some of the "undelete" tools that are in the repos - and see if you can recover your stuff - OR, download one of the forensic recovery "bootable USB"'s...22:29
YankDownUnderboozewooz: If it was encrypted, you're not going to be able to see it/view it - therefore it would appear as "empty space", true?22:29
boozewoozYankDownUnder, I don't know, the harddisk is 110GB, and it says now "90GB unused"...22:30

delizinHey all. I have a VPS webserver running Ubuntu 12.04 that I setup years ago and I am trying to throw up a game server on it. For some reason I can't open the port 21025. Ufw is inactive and I don't see anything in my iptables that should be dropping the connections, but nmap only shows port 22 and 80 open. I'd really appreciate if someone with more experience could take a look at my pastebin and point me in the right direction. htt22:32

Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Hey .. we have a target to work too ! Maybe then it is a user config issue ... hummm ....22:33
YankDownUnderboozewooz: You're going to have to do some reading/re-reading, and you're going to have to dig through stuff...as well, as I had advised, get yourself some undelete tools, too...unless you wish to do a "re-install" over the top of all of this...either which, you've just learned an extremely painful lesson in dealing with encrypted folders and "deleting things" without thinking very deeply, hmm...22:34
ubuntu_failBashing-om: trying to log back in to my user account froze X - I had to do a hard reboot22:35
crafty1HappySomethingSo: Were you able to boot off of the repair CD with the boot menu?22:36
HappySomethingSocrafty1: yes, thanks. I don't know why it didsn't work with boot priority but it worked with that22:37
* crafty1 jumps for joy22:37
HappySomethingSocrafty1: however it didn't work, grubs still appears even though I followed the instructions here http://www.howtogeek.com/141818/how-to-uninstall-a-linux-dual-boot-system-from-your-computer/22:37
* YankDownUnder thinks that HappySomethingSo is buying donuts today22:37
HappySomethingSocrafty1: so now I'm restoring the system22:38
crafty1HappySomethingSo: OK - In the past I know that with dual boots its preferrable to install WinSpyware first then Ubuntu22:38
crafty1HappySomethingSo: Somehow it makes a difference to GRUB.  Or it used to at least.22:38
HappySomethingSocrafty1: yeah, I only needed ubuntu for 1 program so I kinda did something unnecessary and this is my punishment I suppose22:39
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Well .. gets deeper alla the time .. How bout we boot to terminal, start the GUI from terminal and see what the system screams and hollers about in the terminal outputs ?22:39
crafty1HappySomethingSo: Perhaps run it in a VM?  I hear WinSpy10 is going to allow users to run Ubuntu natively; they've bastardized the NT kernal so it can now interpret Linux syscalls so that could be worth looking into22:39
crafty1But for one program a VM is probably best22:40
HappySomethingSocrafty1: I already did that but it was slow and since when I use that I only use that I thought it would be a good idea to dual boot22:40
crafty1HappySomethingSo: Years ago I had so many issues dual booting I was like never again.  And this is why22:40
HappySomethingSocrafty1: yeah I'm happy I learned this now and not in the middle of the semester22:41

rdeggesHey all! I just got a brand new box here, and installed 16.04 LTS. I'm having some issues with VLC having really choppy video playback. What's odd is that it plays fine (and not choppy) using the default media player that ships with ubuntu.22:48
rdeggesAny ideas what might be going on?22:48
rdeggesGoogleing isn't really helping me w/ this one.22:48
rdeggesThere are a lot of threads saying to enable hardware acceleration, but they're all super old and it seems like I've already got that.22:49

ubuntu_failBashing-om: logged in22:50
ubuntu_failBashing-om: (at terminal)22:51
crafty1rdegges: You dont need to enable hardware acceleration if it works in a different media player. Thats not the source of the problem then.22:52

Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Start the GUI ( many other serveces are NOT started ) ' systemctl isolate graphical.target ' .. any errors reported back in terminal ?22:53
ubuntu_failBashing-om: it just asked to log in, it fired up X, and back at the terminal it just said a couple of lines about polickit not being authenticated and then being authenticated22:56
crafty1rdegges: That is a weird issue though Im sitting here thinking about it.  Personally I use Kubuntu and I use Dragon Player.  I never setup VLC on here because it plays the formats I need.  Let me know if you make any headway Id be curious to see what was wrong with it22:56
rdeggesThanks crafty1. I'm asking in the videolan chan as suggetsed =)22:57
rdeggesIt's sorta weird because I've been using vlc for like, as far back as I can remember on many systems.22:57
rdeggesThis is the first time I've ever had an issue with it in my entire life, heh.22:57
rdeggeson a brand new box ^^22:57
crafty1rdegges: Yeah.  Have you tried this : https://wiki.videolan.org/VSG:Video:Choppy/22:58
crafty1rdegges: Also what is the other player you tried that worked fine?22:58
ubuntu_failBashing-om: hey! the icons are still off resolution-wise, but when I run a game I'm getting 150 fps instead of 10fps!22:59
rdeggesHmm, I don't think that's it. My htop usage shows basically 0% cpu usage. This is a realyl nice intel chip in here. 8 cores, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz22:59
ubuntu_failBashing-om: and my bluetooth and wifi are not working...23:00
hypesthey guys, I have trouble having the fnmode work with my 2015 (bluetooth) Apple Magic keyboard on 16.04. Has anyone made that work so far? Thanks!23:01
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Well !! .. back to a user config issue ,, no ? Be aware ,, I do not run 16.04 - yet - nor do I run a GUI .. We are going to be fumbling in the dark .23:02
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: As to WIFI and bluetooth .. expected not to be enabled in this environment .. many services are not started .23:03
ubuntu_failBashing-om: can we start services then until something breaks it?23:03
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Yeah ,, when one knows how .. many I do not know as I am not conversant all that much with systemd .23:07
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Try: ' systemctl enable NetworkManager.service ; systemctl start NetworkManager.service ' to get networking up .23:08
ubuntu_failBashing-om: I have not clue what we are doing... as for the wrong scaling on the screen - Xorg.0.log has a line: "Unable to get display device for DPI computation; DPI set to (75,75); computed from built in default". The dispaly settings show resolution is 3200x1800, but the icons are HUGE23:10
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Yeah, seen that before .. How many connectors are on the graphics card ? .. 2 as "DPI" and 2 others ? then try swiching the connector to differnt outputs . Maybe best if that external monitor is not a part of the equation ???23:13
ubuntu_failBashing-om: not using external monitor - just the laptop screen (computer has HDMI out and USB-C out /w HDMI converter not plugged in). As for getting the networking started, it didn't fail, but no networking is showing up23:14
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: I am at a loss .. acess to a wired connection .. maybe that "systemctl start NetworkManager.service " only refers to a wired connection ??23:16
ubuntu_failBashing-om: don't care about networking at this point too much either... unless the networking would break the graphics card?23:16
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: Networking and graphics, separate processes, can not see that either would affect the other .23:18
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: What Desk Top are we working with ? unity ?23:18
ubuntu_failBashing-om: yes - other than nvidia an a quick fix for the wifi card/touchpad (blacklisted a module) - it's a fresh 16.04 system23:19
ubuntu_failBashing-om: (blacklist i2c_hid)  http://askubuntu.com/questions/647505/alienware-13-touchpad-not-working-under-any-distro-dll068b00-06cb76e9-hid-r23:21
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: I can not imagine what could have broke the user configs on a fresh install when all you did was update the system .. Something not right starting the GUI "normally" as now things look pretty good .23:22
ubuntu_failBashing-omn: right - and it was working earlier (in May) - so something broke it...23:23
ubuntu_failBashing-om: I just reviewed my apt history since may, and it was all 'unattended upgrade'23:26
xebrahi, is a write speed of 4.5 MB/s normal for a USB 2 pen, when writing a single huge file? Or is there something wrong with my Ubuntu or pen? It seems too slow to me. I'd expect 10-15 MB/s23:31
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: I do not see that i2c_hid could be a factor . I do not know what to do .. we can poke at it and see what happens if we revert the DE to defaults ??23:35
ubuntu_failBashing-om: what is DE and how to we start those?23:39
ubuntu_failBashing-om: maybe creating a 2nd (dummy) user may help? I don't know23:41
ubuntu_failBashing-om: the other source of problems was "ureadahead" - but I deleted the 'pack' file and that didn't fix it23:42
ubuntu_failBashing-om: sorry - meant 'potential source - as it loads a bunch of config files early (as per my understanding)23:44
Bashing-omubuntu_fail: I am torn which way to proceed, as we have the DPI issues reported in the log files . That generally points to hardware issues ( bad cable ? .. but this is with onboard monitor so cable is not a factor ) .23:48
