SikI was about to update from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 and now I'm looking at the list of packages it wants to remove and it wants to get rid of Audacious and XChat? The heck? (and PHP 5? I mean I know PHP 7 is around but it doesn't look to be in the install list either...) What do I do, that sounds stupid to remove.00:06
Guest57254hello, I need help. I am trying to compile the netgear drivers for device U341 but when I execute "sudo make all" I get an error on the path where it is trying to install. the path is insude /lib/modules/version/build but the last "folder" I think is a symlink00:07
Guest57254when I tried to create a folder I got an error message saying that cannot create directory - file exists...00:07
tgm4883Sik: xchat has been replaced with hexchat00:09
SikEr OK but what about Audacious00:09
tgm4883Sik: not sure why it's trying to remove audacious, it's still in 16.0400:09
OerHeksmaybe from ppa?00:10
Guest57254the error is "make[1]: *** /lib/modules/4.1.19-v7/build: No such file or director. Stop.00:10
SikI'd think that if it needs updating then it'd be in the update list instead? ¯\(º_o)/¯ (also I suppose php can just be reinstalled, right? I don't mind switching to PHP 7 if needed)00:10
Guest57254has anyone experienced an issue similar to mine while trying to compile a driver using make all?00:11
tgm4883Sik: php5 is being removed because php7 is in 16.0400:13
SikOK I guess it's just not installing it by default (I'd have expected it to be smarter than that :P but can cope, I was planning to update that anyway)00:13
tgm4883Sik: no, php5 isn't in 16.04 at all. That package does not exist00:14
OerHeksGuest57254, the manual suggest to use sudo checkinstall to build a .deb00:14
tgm4883Sik: same reason xchat is being removed00:15
Siktgm4883: I mean I thought it'd replace it with php7 instead :P anyway, can confirm that audacious is there? Worst case I may need to reinstall it >.>;00:15
tgm4883because the package no longer exists00:15
tgm4883ah yea00:15
SikEh, maybe the package got renamed and I'm tripping over the same issue as with XChat and PHP00:15
tgm4883Sik: do you have the php package (not php5) installed in 14.04?00:15
SikEr or... OK dunno :D00:16
SikDoesn't matter I'll just install php7 manually :P00:16

Guest57254OerHeks: I might have a very old package then because that is not part of the instructions. Where did you find the info?00:16
skinuxI need someone to help me figure out what package(s) I'm missing for having a launchable VLC. Here is an image of list of all VLC packages I've installed. https://imgur.com/a/9rLUM00:16
tgm4883Sik: if you had the php package installed in 14.04, i'd expect it to install php7 as part of the upgrade00:17
skinuxDoes 16.04 come with a DVD ripper out of the box?00:24
YankDownUnderskinux: You can very quickly and easily install "Handbrake".00:25

Peetz0rohai! when I use uqiquity to install ubuntu-mate and in the process ask it to make a new partition table,does it create an MBR or an GPT table?01:04
YankDownUnderPeetz0r: Kinda lost on your question - are you trying to install the "Mate" desktop inside of an already existing Ubuntu installation, or something different?01:07
Peetz0rskinux: for ripping video dvd's, just copy the VIDEO_TS folder somewhere01:08
Peetz0rit's lossless and fast and always works (and vlc understands video_ts folders)01:08
Peetz0rYankDownUnder: i'm tryong to install ubuntu-mate (the distro) but this question would probably apply to all ubuntu flavors01:08
Bashing-omPeetz0r: Whichever, In a "manual" install .. the installed in UEFI mode == GPT .. with the legacy partitioning == msdos .01:09
Peetz0rwhen in the installer, you click the "new partition table" button, what kind of partition table does it write?01:09
Peetz0rBashing-om: how do i check which mode the installer thinks it's in?01:09
Peetz0rwould be nice to display thos somewhere in the installer (especially when manually partitioning)01:10
aviswith GPT you often need a 1000MB bios reserved partition, then the rest works, and often partitions are in order.01:10
Peetz0rI know that, that was not my question01:10
Bashing-omPeetz0r: If the directory /sys/firmware/efi/ exists then you're booted via UEFI, and the installer will therefore try to install for UEFI .01:11
Peetz0rok, thanks01:12

CryptoSiDas i said, ubuntu desktop not ubuntu server.05:26
CryptoSiDi want to install using ubuntu desktop dvd, and create a raid105:26
CryptoSiDis that possible?05:26
ryeinhow should i install the AMDGPU-Pro driver?05:26
ryeina ppa exist yet?05:26
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, I don't do raids, but I believe you're trying a standard operation.  server or desktop, the underlying method is the same.05:27
CryptoSiDi cant see the option in desktop ubuntu installation, thats the issue05:28
YankDownUnderWould that not fall under the topic of partitioning?05:28
CryptoSiDin "use as" i dont see anything related to raid05:30
CryptoSiDwhat is wrong with ubuntu desktop installer05:30
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, I see the issue now.  the wiki specifies use of the alternate installer which is no longer in service.  you *could* use the server .iso and then add the ubuntu desktop packages05:30
CryptoSiDi dont have a usb key and no more blank DVD, i have to do this using ubuntu desktop 16.04 dvd05:31
CryptoSiDi just burned it.05:31
OerHeksstep 3 https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID#Configuring_the_RAID05:31
CryptoSiDOerHeks its for ubuntu server, not ubuntu desktop05:32
CryptoSiDthe installation interface is different in ubuntu desktop05:32
OerHeksbut you don't put /boot on softwareraid AFAIK, always the server on a seperate partition05:33
CryptoSiDall i see is a menu to create partition, with no option to create raid, and "install now" once i created my partitions05:33
CryptoSiDall i need is the method to create raid1 using ubuntu desktop installer05:33
CryptoSiDnot ubuntu SERVER05:33
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, yes, we get it.  calm down.05:34
doofamashryein i have no idea about a ppa for amdgpu-pro drivers but you can install it from a .tar file05:34
CryptoSiDeverywhere im reading, they say to install using ubuntu server than apt install ubuntu-desktop05:35
CryptoSiDwhats wrong?05:35
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, what's wrong is that the solution to your request is given, you just don't like it.05:35
guzzlefryDoes anyone know how to force a monitor to wake up? It's asleep in X, but when I CTRL+ALT+1 I can at least get a terminal.05:35
CryptoSiDas i said, i dont have a usb key under hand right now, and no more blank DVD05:36
CryptoSiDso imust be able to create a raid 1 using the desktop installer05:36
CryptoSiDelse im mad05:36
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, your choice is 1. be angry or 2. go get a usb.  (they are cheap, you know.(05:36
doofamashguzzlefty, restart your diaplaymanager service05:37
guzzlefryCan't he set up the RAID using the "Try Ubuntu" liveDVD?05:37
CryptoSiDits 2 am here, i doubt i can get usb key or blank DVD at this time05:37
guzzlefryCryptoSiD: U.S. or elsewhere?05:37
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, or you could use the command line --- ALSO from the wiki page.  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID#Using_the_mdadm_CLI05:37

CryptoSiDhow come the options to create raid 1 isnt in the desktop installer?05:38
CryptoSiDwtf is wrong with the desktop cd/dvd05:38
OerHeksshould work for 16.04 too05:38
cfhowlettguzzlefry, the desktop installer does not include raid, thus the repeated suggestion to use the server installer then add the desktop packages05:38
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, nothing is wrong.  you have been given no fewer than 2 methods.  choose 1.05:39
CryptoSiDi used to like ubuntu, but now i dont05:39
CryptoSiDits very stupid to not offer the option to create a raid1 in the desktop installation05:39
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, your machine, your choice.  by the way: method 3.  https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/advanced-installation.html05:39
CryptoSiDmethod 3 use ubuntu server05:40
CryptoSiDnot ubuntu desktop05:40
cfhowlettCryptoSiD, it uses the command line.  works perfectly on the desktop.05:40
OerHekswait, you don't have a desktop iso ??05:40
guzzlefryWhat about hardware raid?05:40
CryptoSiDi have a desktop iso.05:40
CryptoSiDwhich seems to be the problem05:40

stevwillswhat you cant create raids in ubuntu, thats a wierd one06:02
YankDownUnderCryptoSiD: The team that "thought up" the installation process would have considered that - and obviously the decision to include it was outweighed.06:02
CryptoSiDwell they havent asked me about that:P06:03
CryptoSiDi mean, between having the option or not, its better to have it06:03
YankDownUnderCryptoSiD: Because your ego is not as huge as theirs.06:03
stevwillsnot allowing raid was a huge fuck entreprises06:03
YankDownUnderCryptoSiD: I'm sure a nice email to the Dev team explaining your situation would bring some type of recompense.06:03
CryptoSiDi want 1 million dollar06:04
stevwillswell is there any other linux distro that dosn't allow raids?06:04
YankDownUnderOption: install the server version, create the RAID1, install desktop afterwards. Easy done.06:04
stevwillsmaybe he wants a raid 12 XD06:05
OerHeksYankDownUnder, it can be done from live mode.. but mister does not have internet.06:05

ubottuhappyBoy,: LTS means Long Term Support. Until 12.04 LTS versions of Ubuntu were supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server; since 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) LTS versions will be supported for 5 years on the desktop and server. The latest LTS version of Ubuntu is !Xenial (Xenial Xerus 16.04.1)08:56

adroit_machinei have filtered the broken packages in synaptic and then I have  tried apt-get -f install, and also I have tried to puge the sqllite package, ikonia09:24
sevenup__that's the consequence of your modified sources, some packaged installed previously from another way different than official repos09:24

marethi everyone, my understanding is that 16.04 with unity still doesn't support touch screen out of box as for example windows does.

floogyHi, I want to upgrade trusty to xenial. How can I tell for sure my home is encrypted? I thought so, but I can not find a ecryptfs passphrase. There are even no ecryptfs-utils installed. Could it be encrypted in a different way. Sorry, but I'm not as involved in ubunt, like I used to be e.g. since hoary till precise13:39
EriC^^floogy: try df -h and see if it's mounted13:40
floogybesides /sys, /run and /dev there is only / listed. That tells: ecryptfs-recover-private13:41
floogySorry: ~$ mount|grep 'on / '13:41
floogy/dev/sda1 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro)13:41
EriC^^floogy: i'd say it's not encrypted13:42
floogyc & p error. ecryptfs-recover-private isn't installed.13:42
EriC^^usually it has a /home/user/.Private or so mounted on /home/user13:42
EriC^^floogy: you could try creating an encrypted user to compare13:43
floogyThanks, that's what I think, too. ~/.Private doesn't exist. I got a second ubuntu install. Maybe that one is the encrypted one. I simply forgot about that stuff.13:43

jaerfHi everyone! language-pack-en-base and dependencies are installed in a fresh ubuntu distro (inside LXD), but the french accents don't work. When exec'ing into it, the "é" for instance doesn't display. locale returns everything to posix even tho /etc/default/locale and /etc/environment are defining everything to "en_US.UTF-8". Seems like these settings are ignored, ideas?13:45
floogyI read, that one should decrypt first, before upgrade from trusty to xenial.13:45
EriC^^floogy: i dont think that's necessary13:45
floogyIf there is nothing encrypted, so I'm fine.13:45
EriC^^the upgrade shouldn't touch anything in the user's home dir, could be wrong though13:45
floogyAh, ok. I think now I'm understanding. That was only regarding fstzab entries due to tghe change from upstart to systemd https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ecryptfs-utils/+bug/144728213:47

jaerfWow, fedora 3.13:59
jaerfDo you have a USB socket? lol13:59
zumba_addictyes, I have usb13:59
zumba_addictfedora 3, hahaha. I'm telling the truth13:59
zumba_addictit's extremely fast and I love how i setup xorg14:00
zumba_addictforgot which gui I use14:00
ctjctjzumba_addict, you can create a bootable USB if your hardware will boot from USB.  Or you will need to do a network boot.14:00
zumba_addictThe machine is still good. It's I7 with 16gb of memory14:00
zumba_addictgot it, maybe using dd14:01
ctjctjzumba_addict, there is a tool to create bootable USBs...14:01
zumba_addictoh cool14:01
zumba_addictis that an ubuntu tool?14:01
ctjctjI think that's it.14:01
=== koiranpentu666 is now known as muskrat

zumba_addictif so, it won't work for me14:02
zumba_addicti'm running fedora14:02
zumba_addicti'll use dd and find a bootable iso14:03
ctjctjIt is written with python so if your fedora is compatible there is a chance.14:03
zumba_addictpython should be easy to install14:03
jaerfzumba_addict: you can easily do it with dd if you know how to do it14:03

kunststoffwhat command do I need to get a list of address, netmask, gateway and dns nameservers currently in use?14:54
sburwood321liamphmurphy: what I m gonna do is to go and download ubuntu on my computer at my house and come back and follow those instructions. Do you think it works with windows 8.0, 8.1 and 10?14:54
\9kunststoff: ifconfig should get you everything except the dns nameserver, I think14:54
liamphmurphysburwood321: No, I was presuming you were able to access the Windows Login (which you arent, right?)14:56
Kidswhere is our The Administrator14:59
sburwood321liamphmurphy: what happens is that it starts to boot and gets to the point where it says that it doesn t work. You have the option between using advanced options , reinitiallisationof the system or update the system. But the e mail address as the only account is wrong and no way to figure out the correct password amongst those he thinks was the correct one15:00

e-ventI have fuse installed and have sshfs installed.15:45
k1l_on openvz the host needs to provide the modules. is it really activated on the host to share with the vps?15:46

curlyearsgot it15:49
k1l_curlyears: its more for the new installs not having to download all updates from april, but get them bundled on the new cd.15:49

HalfOfAKebabhey guys15:55
HalfOfAKebabi kinda fucked up uninstalling ubuntu15:55
HalfOfAKebabso i have/had a windows+ubuntu dual boot15:56
HalfOfAKebaband i wanted to get rid of ubuntu and reinstall it because i had an unrelated issue with it15:56
HalfOfAKebaband i couldn't find a way to do that just looking around, so i did something dumb and just removed the partitions it created and expanded the rest of the disk to them15:57
HalfOfAKebaband now when i boot it automatically goes to grub15:57
HalfOfAKebabi tried using some commands in cmd and using windows repair but it still doesn't automatically go to windows15:57
HalfOfAKebabi can still access windows by using f8 to get to the boot menu though15:58

sunnydealmeidaYou could try with windows disk if you have that.16:08
EriC^^HalfOfAKebab: is it uefi?16:08
HalfOfAKebabEriC^^ how do i check?16:08
EriC^^when you press f8 do you get a uefi menu16:08
HalfOfAKebabsunnydealmeida what specifically? i have a windows 10 bootable usb16:09
EriC^^that says Windows boot manager, ubuntu, etc?16:09
HalfOfAKebabEriC^^ as in, a list of os's and drives? yes16:09
EriC^^HalfOfAKebab: do you have an ubuntu liveusb?16:09

EriC^^HalfOfAKebab: do you have an ubuntu liveusb?16:11
HalfOfAKebabEriC^^ i don't, but i can make one16:11
EriC^^HalfOfAKebab: ok, make one and boot it, you can remove ubuntu and set windows as the default efi using efibootmgr16:11
EriC^^Neomex: by default there isn't a ~/src16:12
HalfOfAKebabEriC^^ alright. so i boot into ubuntu from the usb "trying" it? not installing? and where do i go from there? i've got zero experience with ubuntu16:12
EriC^^HalfOfAKebab: first make sure it's booted in uefi mode16:12
EriC^^HalfOfAKebab: then install efibootmgr if you have to16:13
EriC^^HalfOfAKebab: then do sudo efibootmgr -v , that shows you a list of the entries, with the boot order, like Boot order 0001, 0002,.. and Boot0001 ubuntu, Boot0002 Windows16:13
EriC^^use sudo efibootmgr -B -b 000116:14
EriC^^to delete ubuntu if it's actually Boot0001, or put whatever it is in the command16:14
EriC^^then make sure windows is first with sudo efibootmgr -o 0002,000...,000...16:14
HalfOfAKebabEriC^^ how do i boot into uefi mode?16:14
EriC^^(copy the boot order you get at the top but with windows first in it)16:15
EriC^^HalfOfAKebab: in the boot menu when the pc starts choose uefi usb16:16

HalfOfAKebabEriC^^: so, boot into uefi mode, install efibootmgr, `sudo efibootmgr -v`, `sudo efibootmgr -B -b 000x`, check windows is first with `sudo efibootmgr -o 0001,0002,0003,0004,0005`? not sure about that last part though16:18

slojankoEric I'm not, I ran into a problem when running Ubuntu from a Usb (installed it on it) and I formatted the Usb but the pc still detects that the Usb is always in and gives me a option to boot into Ubuntu17:38
slojankoWhen i select the Usb option I boot into this: https://s31.postimg.org/n3gg2vj49/Untitled.png17:39
fffWhen will wayland replace xorg?17:41
EriC^^slojanko: ok can you boot into ubuntu liveusb?17:41
slojankoI formatted that Usb aswell17:43
EriC^^slojanko: you have to make another one to delete the usb entry17:43
EriC^^or maybe do it from windows using the bcdedit tool17:43
slojankoDoes it have to be the same usb?17:43
EriC^^no any ubuntu would do17:44
k1l_fff: we cant tell. its when the desktops and apps are 100% compatible. and even then it takes ages to get the users not use the old stuff anymore17:44
slojankoI've tried going into msconfig in windows but it only showed windows 1017:44
skinuxCan anyone help me out a bit with VLC? It stops playing DVDs after intro. Here is log output https://gist.github.com/skinuxgeek/28c5990f7a2cc0822a9c80b0b01fdc2b17:44
skinuxI've asked in #vlc but not getting any responses.17:45
slojankoEric, was the ubuntu boot option only created because I iinstalled ubuntu on a usb?17:45
slojankoCause I don't think it existed before I created a liveusb17:45
=== ryein is now known as irenicus
EriC^^slojanko: when you installed it to the usb it created the efi entry i'd guess17:46

dahlia_guys! can you see this page?(https://igorescobar.github.io/jQuery-Mask-Plugin/) just test money input , i wanna know that is it good to use something like that for money input in my site? is it easy to use?17:46
EriC^^but you do get grub, so that's odd, it must have used the efi partition you have and not created one on the usb17:46

slojankoEric, if I have a live usb, are files kept on shutdown?17:47
Seveasirenicus: the one that disables caps lock...17:47
EriC^^slojanko: no, not unless you make it a persistent live usb17:47
slojankoCause now I'm thinking of not installing onto a usb but just having a liveusb17:47
dahlia_k1l_, let me know where can i ask that?17:47
irenicusHydr0p0nX: should i use the beta driver or does a ppa exist?17:47
slojankoCan I make a persistent live usb and still remove the ubuntu boot option?17:48
EriC^^slojanko: yeah17:48
k1l_dahlia_: the bot told you where to talk about non ubuntu support related stuff. its #ubuntu-offtopic17:48
HalfOfAKebabhey guys17:48
slojankoCan you show me how? So far I only used rufus for making the liveusb17:48
irenicusshould I use this?17:48
irenicusI have an r9 29017:48

k1l_irenicus: why not the drivers ubuntu ships?17:48
YankDownUnderirenicus: One of the fastest ways to determine what driver you require for Ubuntu is to open a terminal, and type: sudo ubuntu-drivers list17:49
irenicusk1l_: steam has problems sometimes17:49
skinuxFor VLC it says to just install VLC. That's not helpful.17:49
HalfOfAKebabjust fresh installed ubuntu, and i'm stuck in 1024x768. in the display settings i can't change the resolution at all; there aren't any other options. i've got no experience so far so i'm probably missing something obvious, so any help is appreciated :).17:49
YankDownUnderskinux: Did you not read that page I posted for you?17:49
slojankoWhy does everything with ubuntu have to be complicated17:49
irenicusYankDownUnder: all it says is "amd64-microcode" probably for my CPU17:50
HalfOfAKebabthat's my entire experience with ubuntu today slojanko17:50
slojankohaha I know HalfOfAKebab it's the least user friendly os i've ever seen17:50
YankDownUnderirenicus: Ok...fair enough...then you'll either have to go with the "third party" driver, or, well, not. Hmm?17:50
ppfis there any alternative to cups-pdf?17:50
HalfOfAKebabi could say the same, but the only other os i've used is windows ;)17:50
k1l_slojanko: dont blame ubuntu for strange setups and mistakes you did :/17:51
irenicusYankDownUnder: yeah its confusing i wish some one would explain it17:51
lordcirthFunny.  I use Ubuntu because it's simple.17:51
skinuxYankDownUnder: I guess I didn't see one17:51
HalfOfAKebablordcirth this is my first time using ubuntu coming from windows and it's been a headache so far haha17:51
k1l_irenicus: you know amd stoped making a closed source driver and wants the user to use the radeo and amd_gpu which are in the kernel. since 16.04?17:51
YankDownUnderirenicus: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=ubuntu-1604-amd&num=117:51
slojankok1l_: I honestly didnt do anything wrong, setup made a partition, ubuntu installed without a problem then failed to boot after 30 minutes17:51
skinuxYankDownUnder: However, I got the machine internet (wired connection), so it'll be easier to figure out wireless17:51
YankDownUnderskinux: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/PlayingDVDs17:51
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, what graphics card do you have?17:52
HalfOfAKebablordcirth rx 48017:52
skinuxYankDownUnder: Oh yeah that one. I did, after second glance I just had it install libdvdcss217:52
irenicusk1l_: so it is like a kernel module now?17:52
YankDownUnderskinux: Well, there ya go. That allows the program to "read" the chapters of the DVD...so you'll get past the intro and see the menu, eh? Coolbeans.17:52
k1l_irenicus: yes. that is why ubuntu did put a lot of amd video driver stuff fom the 4.5 kernel into the 4.4 kernel ubuntu 16.04 is running17:53
skinuxYeah. I still have to fix Wireless though, I can't keep the Ethernet cord connected all the time.17:53
irenicusk1l_: oh ok so it can be upgrade if it is backported or you upgrade your kernel17:53
skinuxI took out the Wireless NIC, it only has the USB Wireless Adapter.17:53
HalfOfAKebabjust fresh installed ubuntu, and i'm stuck in 1024x768. in the display settings i can't change the resolution at all; there aren't any other options. i've got no experience so far so i'm probably missing something obvious, so any help is appreciated :).17:54
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, If you open your menu and search "driver" there's a tool that might help17:54
slojankoEriC^^: I don't know what I'm reading, it's throwing random words at me I never heard of. Loopback file casper-rw what even is all of this17:54
k1l_irenicus: since ubuntu is a stable release distribution, you upgrade to the next ubuntu release or use the hardware enablement stack on LTS. but you can manuall use newer kernels from mainline, if you want.17:55
HalfOfAKebablordcirth am i looking for "additional drivers"?17:55
k1l_irenicus: but you could look out for or file  a bug on launchpad and see if that can be fixed and will be backported17:55
atralheaven__Guys how much is enough for root partitio?17:55
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, something like that.  Not in front of an Ubuntu PC right now.17:55
irenicusk1l_: that makes sense, so AMD could potentially be really good for linux17:55
lordcirthatralheaven__, are you using a separate /home?17:56
atralheaven__16gb? 20gb?17:56
k1l_irenicus: in the long run its good to get rid of the "black box" fglrx. yes17:56
luxitaniumatralheaven__: Depends on what are you going to install17:56
lordcirthatralheaven__, I've used 40GB before a lot.17:56
lordcirthLet me guess, SSD?17:56
neomexi need to access grub-mkrescue, whats the command to install grub from terminal for this purpose?17:56
k1l_atralheaven__: for a common desktop install 20GB should be more than enough17:56
luxitaniumI'd say 30GB is generous, 15GB to 20GB if one is careful17:57
atralheaven__I have 60, no its not ssd, just a full hhd!17:57
ffftype in lsblk17:58
fffthen type  cfdisk /dev/sd17:58
bekksatralheaven__: My default setup is about 20G for /, 4G for /home, and everything else resides on /data17:58
atralheaven__So I will use 20, if I needed more, I can give it some space from other partitions17:58
DWSREverything on LVM!17:58
dailyHi there, I am on Ubuntu 14.04 (downloaded directly from the Ubuntu site) running MATE. I have a weird issue where my mic setup has a large amount of static when talking into it regardless of what program it is. I have confirmed that the issue doesn't exist on a Windows laptop I had laying around. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!17:58
atralheaven__bekks: 4gb for home?17:58
atralheaven__bekks: and what is data for?17:59
avisdaily you might have to look into the command line version of alsamixer for adjustment -- possibly and theoretically17:59
bekksatralheaven__: holding data, which I do not store in /home in general.17:59
ctjctjInteresting issue (for me) Ubuntu 16.04LTS, Totem 3.18.1.  Mouse clicks are ignore but it recognizes mouse enter and leave and keyboard commands work.  Menu's work.  So clicking on the time bar or the sound control do nothing.17:59
dailyavis: I've attempted to adjust the right and left audio channels via pavucontrol, but to no avail. Would looking into alsamixer still be helpful?18:00
atralheaven__bekks: like your musics document s etc? Is there a way to separate all configs from home partition?18:00
=== Goddard is now known as Guest90731
bekksatralheaven__: If you do not store your data in /home, there will be only configs and such in there.18:01
lordcirthI symlink ~/Documents and ~/Downloads to my data partition18:01
inerkickHi. I'm using ubuntu14.04 I know that I got 2GB DDR3 Ram. Wanted to update my ram, but not sure which RAM is compatible.  Is there any thing which specifies which I should buy to upgrade my laptop RAM. Kindly share18:01
bekksinerkick: thats to be looked up in your computers manual.18:02
Tazermost SODIMM will work unless its a mac18:02
bekksTazer: DDR, DDR2, DDR3, DDR4? :)18:02
TazerMatch what you already have18:03
DDRAccept no substitutes!18:03
atralheaven__bekks: good idea.... Does a ubuntu default partitioning has data partition?18:03
bekksTazer: And thats to be looked up in the manual :P18:03
bekksatralheaven__: No.18:03
TazerHe said he already has ddr3 though lol18:03
Tin_manmost of the time you can type the name and model of you computer in amazon, and they'll match up your ram for you.18:03
atralheaven__bekks: and may I ask, how much of your root partition is used now?18:03
bekksatralheaven__: about 12G.18:04
Tin_manor the computers web site.18:04
skinuxOkay, well libdvdcss2 it the DVD menu working, but there is a black area and I'm not able to tell the movie to play.18:04
HalfOfAKebablordcirth there was one proprietary driver in the list. some massive long name about processor microcode firmware or something like that. i applied it, restarted and it's still stuck in 1024x76818:04
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, with the RX 480, you should be running AMDGPU driver, I think.  Is your system updated?  The 480 is quite new.18:05
atralheaven__Bekks, was 4 gb enough?18:06
HalfOfAKebablordcirth i don't currently have any other drivers that ubuntu didn't install automatically. however yesterday when i first installed ubuntu, i downloaded and installed the driver as instructed by AMD, and it made my "taskbar" (or whatever ubuntu calls it) an desktop disappear, and i only had the wallpaper and cursor.18:06
HalfOfAKebabso i had to reinstall ubuntu, and here i am now18:06
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, installing drivers outside the package manager is for advanced users & special cases only18:07
Mathisenanyone using guake terminal in a ubuntu 16.04 vm "Virtualbox" i cant seem to get the transparency settings to take effect18:07
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, have you checked for updates after reinstalling?18:07
atralheaven__bekks: and I already have a 840gb ntfs partition shared with windows for my files, I can mount it as /data without formating yes? Is that a good idea?18:07
bekksatralheaven__: For my /home? Yes.18:07
HalfOfAKebablordcirth yes18:07
MathisenMate desktop if that has any thing with it to do18:07
lordcirthMathisen, could be your compositor is disabled due to lack of 3d accel.  Did you enable 3D accel in Vbox settings?18:08
bekksatralheaven__: As long as you dont need file permissions, that would be ok. I'm not sharing with windows, so I dont take that into account for my files and folders.18:08
slojankoEriC^^: hey, I'm on ubuntu now18:08
Mathisenlordcirth, i have.. and installed guest additions also18:08
EriC^^slojanko: ok18:08

HalfOfAKebablordcirth everything is fully up to date according to the update manager18:10
atralheaven__Bekks, I dont think I need that, I think I never used file permissions in my home partition18:10
k1l_KlausedSource: what did you try?18:10
k1l_KlausedSource: chrome should work18:10
KlausedSourcek1l_, i tried with my favourite browser (vivaldi) based on chromium18:10
HalfOfAKebabjust fresh installed ubuntu, and i'm stuck in 1024x768. in the display settings i can't change the resolution at all; there aren't any other options. i've got no experience so far so i'm probably missing something obvious, so any help is appreciated :).18:11
KlausedSourceso google chrome? will try that thx18:11
EriC^^slojanko: ok, type sudo efibootmgr -B -b 000418:11
slojankoOk now what?18:12
KlausedSourcechrome works thx18:12
EriC^^slojanko: try sudo efibootmgr -v again18:12
EriC^^slojanko: ubuntu shouldn't be there anymore18:12
slojankoAfter I wrote sudo efibootmgr -v I can try and go into boot menu again?18:13
EriC^^slojanko: yeah the uefi menu should still show up18:14
EriC^^slojanko: ubuntu shouldn't be there anymore though that's all18:14
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, you said you tried to install this driver: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMD-Radeon-GPU-PRO-Linux-Beta-Driver%e2%80%93Release-Notes.aspx  And it didn't work?18:15
bufferhello everyone18:15
HalfOfAKebablordcirth i used this http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDGPU-PRO-Install.aspx18:15
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, but that's for 14.0418:16
k1l_and thats a beta driver.18:16
mike-zalhi, does anyone here knows how to install steam on wine?18:17
HalfOfAKebablordcirth i used the latest driver (specifically says for 16.04) and then the installation guide links to that18:17
HalfOfAKebabi didn't use the download on that page18:18
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, oh ok.  That's what I was about to suggest.18:18
buffersteam has a native client for ubuntu18:18
mike-zalbuffer, I need windows version of steam18:18
bufferno need to run it on wine18:18
lordcirthmike-zal, wine-hq.com has a guide for that, or you can use PlayOnLinux18:18
k1l_mike-zal: the guys on #winehq wil know best18:18
mike-zalbuffer, there is a great need to use wine, because you can play windows game then18:19
bekksJust a few ones.18:19
mike-zalI don't want to use playonlinux for a reason18:19
mike-zal1. installing some additional game elements is troublesome when steam is on playonlinux18:19

inerkickTazer, bekks , Tin_man On Amazon I tried to search DDR3 laptop rams but it list so many varieties , 1600Mhz and Sodimm, low voltage. So I was not sure which one is suitable for my laptop, hence thought someone could help me out here.18:20
slojankoThe Ubuntu St1000...18:20
mike-zal2. I already have playonlinux steam installation and I can't run properly skyrim on it. tried in different distros and result is the same18:20
YankDownUndermike-zal: If Steam and WINE are so bloody important to you - why aren't you sitting in the channels I told you about - waiting for answers to your questions?18:20
bekksinerkick: Which laptop very exactly do you have?18:20
mike-zalYankDownUnder, THOSE CHANNELS ARE DEAD18:20
lordcirthmike-zal, it's all here: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=1944418:21
YankDownUndermike-zal: So your "Gaming" needs are far more important than the issues folks are having with core Ubuntu issues?18:21
k1l_mike-zal: no need to use caps (its meant as shouting on irc). and the #winehq is where the specialists for wine are. maybe you need more patience18:21

mike-zaland I bet lot of people already installed steam on wine in ubuntu so there is a high chance to find someone here18:25
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, open a terminal.  "cd ~/Downloads" or whereever.18:25

lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, ' ./script.sh '18:25
HalfOfAKebablordcirth it's on my desktop, and i right-click the desktop and click "open terminal here"18:25
HalfOfAKebabis that not the same?18:25
stantonk1l_: fsck seems to say it's ok. and diagnostic software says it's ok.18:25
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, that does the cd for you.18:25
stantonk1l_: but to be honest here it could be a false positive that it's ok.18:25
HalfOfAKebablordcirth exactly, so it should find it right? i mean, i'm looking at the script right there but terminal can't see it18:26

HalfOfAKebablordcirth should i disable it? will this affect my dual boot at all?18:32
lordcirthwoodrag, use 'systemctl status openvpn' or journalctl -b to get more details18:33
k1l_skinux: "lsb_release -d" gives you the actual ubuntu release number you are using18:33
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, it shouldn't change anything.  If it did, you could always re-enable.18:33
HalfOfAKebabalright fair enouhg18:33
skinuxI'm on 14.04.4 right now18:33
k1l_skinux: ok. yes the LTS upgrade path was opened on 28th july18:33
skinuxOkay. What is the recommended way to upgrade a desktop install?18:34
k1l_skinux: make backup of important things, then run the upgrade18:34
k1l_with update-manager18:34

bekksstanton: sounds like you have an issue with your harddisk then.18:35
bekksstanton: It complained because it did not unmount, but crashed.18:35
stantonbekks: yeah and the newer better one wasn't plugged in when it froze and crashed this time18:35
stantonwell this time terminal loaded fine18:36
stantonbekks: gonna try pasting dmesg18:37
stantonbekks: http://pastebin.com/kARE1bNg18:37

stantonbekks: hard to do that when anytime i have the issue the machine crashes and freezes and stuff18:38
stantonbut what is an ata bus error?18:38
bekksstanton: Either your disk, the disk controller or the cabling is faulty.18:38
ctjctjstanton, I believe that is a IO controller, cabling or the disk18:38
stantonbekks: alright i'll try another cable and another port for it.18:38
stantonctjctj: alright.18:39
woodraglordcirth:  Somehow the config does not pickup the right config file and the right key18:39
ctjctjCable and different port are good starts.18:39
stantonso simple put the hdd could be failing? but it could be as simple as faulty cables or faulty port slot?18:39
HalfOfAKebablordcirth it broke it18:39
HalfOfAKebablordcirth just uninstalled the drivers again, restarted and it's fine again18:39
HalfOfAKebabexcept obviously i don't have gpu drivers18:39

stantonwell i've not tried moving any files just using chrome and smuxi and terminal and thus far no issues.18:40
stantonbekks: this machine was built over 8 years ago18:40
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, what tells you this about config files and keys?18:40
HalfOfAKebablordcirth what?18:41
lordcirthHalfOfAKebab, nvrm wrong chat18:41
stantonbekks: built it with 2 1tb hdd's and quadcore processor etc etc. point being it's kind of a dinosaur despite it running GTA 5 around 60fps. but yeah it's getting old. only have one original hdd still have the original mobo and cpu but that's other than that everything else is almost brand new no older than 2 years of age18:41
lordcirthwoodrag, go to the manual page to see what order it reads config files in.  Maybe it's hitting an earlier one than the one you edited.18:42

NORM4Nguys need help w/ themes. i cant find themes comp w/ ubuntu 15. only 14 and backwards18:43
NORM4Nsomeone can help me? looking for a dark theme18:44
ctjctjstanton, ctrl-alt-F2 and see if you can log in there?18:44
bekksNORM4N: Which Ubuntu do you use?18:44
NORM4Nbekks ubuntu 15.1018:45
stantonctjctj: nope just "login"18:45
bekks!15.10 | NORM4N18:45
ubottuNORM4N: Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) was the 23rd release of Ubuntu. Support ended on July 28th, 2016. See !eol, !eolupgrade and http://ubottu.com/y/wily18:45
bekksNORM4N: Just a few too late ;)18:45
bekksNORM4N: 15.10 isnt supported anymore, you need to update to 16.0418:46
stantonbekks: ctjctj: could it possibly be my new (new to me) ram stick causing issues?18:46
bekksstanton: Maybe, yes.18:46
bekksstanton: Did you run a memtest already?18:46
NORM4Nbekks kk im gonna upgrade but i keep finding only themes for ubuntu 14/1318:46
stantonbekks: alright so i got 3 things to do. 1, run memtest on ram after 2, changing cables for my hdd and the port 3, possibly putting my old working perfectly fine beautiful ram stick with big ol heatsink.18:47
bekksNORM4N: Maybe because noone created on for a more recent release yet?18:47

NORM4Nty kLl18:48
ctjctjstanton, have you run memtest86+18:48
stantonctjctj: not yet. only ran smart tests and built in diagnostic tool in the bios. and fsck.18:49
ctjctjFirst rule of debugging, when you start having problems check what you last changed.  In this case memory.18:49
stantonctjctj: yeah i know >.< figured it could've been the 8 year old hdd though.. one reason i got a new one with more room.18:50
k1l_stanton: if you changed ram run a memtest18:52
ctjctjstanton, I spent four weeks trying to get one of my dev's to run memtest.  He finally ran it, lo and behold bad stick of memory....18:53
stantonsooooo my mobo is kinda old right?  all hdd's use AHCI mode. this mobo does support raid. but i've never used raid mode in my life.  if memtest comes clean and changing ports/cables don't work then i guess enable raid?18:53
k1l_stanton: no18:53
stantonctjctj: yeah i've actually done that once my self because i was stubborn and wanted my old ram to work18:54
ctjctjI would not use hardware raid.  NO.18:54
DWSRUse LVM18:54
ctjctjBTRFS, not LVM.18:54
stantonctjctj: k1l_ alright i knew there was a reason on why i've never used raid. and always forced my machine to use ahci when bios defaults where raid.18:55
stantongranted it's been a long time since i made the decision to not use raid controllers.18:55
stantonalright ctjctj bekks k1l_ i'll be right back err well how ever long it takes memtest and depending on how that goes maybe cable swap and port swap.18:56
bekksstanton: Did you test your memory already?18:56
HalfOfAKebabhey guys18:56
bekksstanton: It stops when you cancel it. Otherwis it runs forever.18:57
HalfOfAKebabgetting a "sorry, ubuntu 16.04 has experienced an internal error" window when installing amd drivers18:57
ctjctjstanton, at least 2 hours for memtest18:57
HalfOfAKebabthere's a log and info but i can't find a way to copy it all18:57
HalfOfAKebabany ideas?18:57
stantonctjctj: bekks alright so what memtest are you using? cause mine is graphical and has an end..18:57
bekksstanton: memtest86++18:57
bufferdid anyone here have experience in kernal development ?18:57
bekksstanton: the only reliable one :)18:57
stantonctjctj: bekks but i can't access it outside of grub.18:58
bekksstanton: Thats correct.18:58
stantonor microsofts boot thing18:58
k1l_stanton: ubuntu got one memtest in grub18:58
stantonalright i'll be back in a bit. probably couple hours. gonna throw a movie on netflix while i wait. wish my 2gb stick luck! i'd rather save it than the hdd for me hdd's are cheaper than the ram XD18:59
HalfOfAKebabwhen i install the amd drivers, after rebooting, ubuntu's taskbar doesn't appear, no desktop icons appear and i can't right-click on the desktop. any ideas?19:01
quackgyverCould I run Ubuntu on a 7 GB USB drive and work off of it by plugging it into any computer?19:02
ioriaHalfOfAKebab, nope, but you can try the Guest Account19:02
quackgyverLike could I make it autoboot on plugin19:02
HalfOfAKebabioria what do you mean by try?19:03
HalfOfAKebabioria how would i fix it from there?19:03
bekksquackgyver: Change the boot otder of your omputer to boot off the USB.19:03
lordcirthquackgyver, yes you can.  You have to use the boot menu on the PC to boot from USB though.19:03
DWSRquackgyver: Yes.19:03
Bashing-omHalfOfAKebab: 16.04 as the install ? Then there is no other driver than what is in the kernel .19:03
quackgyverso there's no way to override the boot menu?19:03
quackgyverof whatever computer i plug it into19:03
DWSRquackgyver: Usually yes.19:03
quackgyverI mean automatically19:03
DWSRquackgyver: But not always.19:03
HalfOfAKebabBashing-om yes, and the amd website says the driver is for 16.04.19:03
ioriaHalfOfAKebab,  in the login screen (lightdm) you can choose your user or Guest Account19:04
DWSRquackgyver: No.19:04
quackgyverWould it be more viable to put a VM host app on the USB drive then, and somehow have it run off of itself?19:04
Bashing-omHalfOfAKebab: Then I am in a learning mode .. will lurk and watch .19:04
YankDownUnderquackgyver: http://askubuntu.com/questions/768970/how-to-make-persistent-live-ubuntu-of-16-0419:04
HalfOfAKebabioria and then what do i do when i'm in the guest account?19:05
lordcirthquackgyver, what you can do is put an option on the USB's grub menu to boot from disk, then you can leave it plugged in and choose.19:05
quackgyverlordcirth: thats good enough for me19:05
ioriaHalfOfAKebab,  you see if taskbar shows up and if you are able to right-click19:05
mikewilznAre you guys on 1+.04.1 yet?19:06

varaindemianborders, close, minimise buttons20:06
ahrc333ffBackwards: he did. link above. it shows the USB device, but as we noted in past exploration, there is no driver loaded. you cannot get a driver except through an ndiswrapper from what I was able to determine.20:06
BackwardsSkinux check this URL:   https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=222125120:07
ahrc333ffThat was the same link I provided a few days ago :)20:08
ahrc333ffNoteable: I recall reading that some people had to attempt several drivers before it worked.20:08
lordcirthvaraindemian, the picture says it's  Yosembiance theme:  https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1013689/  Though that looks a bit different20:08
ahrc333ffBackwards: the issue is, this is all likely to break again on a future update.20:08
lordcirthvaraindemian, I think the theme might have an orange setting which is used in the picture?20:09
skinuxIs HexChat memory heavy? I already installed Ubuntu MATE which got the thing working lots faster, but it can still be a sluggish.20:09
BackwardsAhrc333ff thanks for the warning. hehe20:09
DaisykikiIt doesn't ding me when you're done typing20:09
slojankoCan someone please help me completely remove Ubuntu entry in Bios? I've used subo efiboot mgr -b 4-B to remove it but after a restart it returns20:09
varaindemianlordcirth: yeah the buttons look different from yosembiance20:09
lordcirthskinux, if I'm reading correctly mine is using ~24MB20:10
lordcirthvaraindemian, it could be that the picture is an old version of the theme20:11
hijploswith regard to ipv6 privacy extentions should I choose "enable (prefer temporary address)" or enable (prefer public address)"?20:11

lordcirthElhanan, should be good then!20:12

DelphiWorldbut it's pointing to GB20:15
DelphiWorldso it's not a local mirror20:15
lordcirthDelphiWorld, so it's a CNAME.  big deal.20:15
DelphiWorldlordcirth: i'll love to know more ?20:15
daxDelphiWorld: the country code mirror aliases point to whichever mirror(s) are relatively fast and stable for the country. Since not all countries have stable mirrors, sometimes they point to Canonical mirrors that tend to be in GB/US/etc.20:16
lordcirthDelphiWorld, but it's the correct mirror to use if you're in dz = (algeria?)20:16
daxthey're not claiming that they have mirrors in every country, so they're not really faking anything20:16
DelphiWorlddax & lordcirth, i see other mirrors who's faster thant this one20:16
lordcirthDelphiWorld, then switch to those.20:16
DelphiWorldbut now i think i know why ubuntu server choused it20:16
DelphiWorldcause maybe my ISP have a direct link to london20:17
daxDelphiWorld: long-term stability tends to be a concern, as well20:17
DelphiWorlddax, i am not suspecting anything, but just love to know20:17
lordcirthIf my package download speed had anything to do with the mirror, I would be a happy mad20:17
DelphiWorldlordcirth: latency mather a lot20:18

stantonctjctj: bekks: it was the cable i was using. and the port kind both. the cable got loose i stopped the memtest after pass 4 due to the fact i was annoyed with the new stick it's slower than the old sticks. and when i opened the case to remove it i noticed the cable wasn't fully in the board XD that'd def cause issues with hdd not working right. haha thanks guys.20:36

HadesWatch3rI have 16.04.1 LTS, when copying a large file from a USB it will cause my machine to slow to a crawl and then reboot, it is a Core i7 6700K with 32GB Ram and 512 SSD.... why is this happening?20:43
daxneomex: chmod changes the permissions modes of a file, including the execution permission mode20:44
lordcirthHadesWatch3r, it reboots?  Does it do a shutdown process or just reboot instantly?20:44
daxneomex: your file manager may have a Permissions tab in the file properties too, i've never used them for that so idk20:44
HadesWatch3rInstant reboot, no message in log that I can tell why?20:44

hiddeni don't have any openvpn profiles installed21:38
ikoniahidden: thats why we want to verify with a livecd21:38
ikoniator is not an openvpn21:38
tgm4883ikonia: if you, as you are alluding to, that it's possible that it's a issue with mac based routing on the FW (or other issue with the router) then reformating isn't going to help21:38
ikoniaso that has nothing to do with it21:38
k1l_hidden: what exact ubuntu system is it?21:38
ikoniatgm4883: no, it's not, but as he won't verify anything21:38
irregularhi guys my internet has been abnormally slow I look at the browser console network tab and DNS lookup takes 8 seconds for any site I visit21:38
ikoniaa 2 minute boot from a live media will prove the basics quickly21:38

hiddeni installed many applications some might have been malware21:54
hiddeneven though trusted sources21:54
ikoniaand if you ARE infected, backing up possible infected files and restoring them is bad21:54

hiddeninfected files: personal work21:54
ikoniahidden: you have no idea what's infected what's not21:55
chili555Islah1: Correct. So did you install it? sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source21:55
ikoniaif you can't trust your system and may have malware, it could be in your personal files21:55

ikoniayour problem was "my machine is routing out of a tor node"21:56
ikoniayou removed tor - and it stopped21:56
ikoniawhat reason do you have to not trust it ?21:56
BackwardsIkonia how true. Backing up a virus or infection is just asking for trouble. The time to backup a system is before installing anything new so you can revert back to what works.21:56
hiddenyes, and you think it might have been a tor misconfig21:56
pennTellerk1l_: do you know the reasoning behind that decision? seems a bit suspicious to me21:56

zykotick9Xpistos: regex ftw ;)22:12
ctjctjthe 's' is ed/ex/vim/sed for "substitute" the character after is the demark.  The regex in between first and second demarks is your search pattern and the text between the second and third is the replacement text.22:12

zykotick9Xpistos: sorry, i wouldn't know.  but in my opinion, running anything as gui with elevated privs. is kinda insane...22:41
k1l_curlyears: if you really want to install that 3rd party package you could manually force it22:41
Xpistosk1l_: tried using the CP method with no change22:42
curlyearsk1l:  yes, I suppose I could, if I knew how to dothat.   What do I  need to read?22:42
fffthey will cause conflicting22:42
curlyearsk1l:  and just for my elucidation, what, precisely, do you mean by "those entries are rubbish?"22:43
curlyearsI am going to have to report this to alephobjects, obviously22:43
fffrubbish means trash22:44
k1l_curlyears: sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/libjpeg8_8d1-2_amd64.deb22:44
k1l_curlyears: see lines 84-86 from your paste22:44
Xpistosk1l_: libparted warning, the driver descriptor says the physical block size is 2048, but linux says it is 512 bytes22:45
k1l_curlyears: they want to overwrite stuff that is handled by an ubuntu package. that is against .deb guidelines. they should remove the ubuntu package and install their own 3rd party version of it instead of keeping both packages on the system22:45
SuperMechaCowXpistos: I had that error when partioning my SSDs for installation22:45
Xpistosk1l_: but I am not trying to format the usb only the hard drive22:45
fff4.6 changed the default ext4 from 4k to 2k22:46
k1l_Xpistos: that doesnt matter. that is because the .iso image had a different sector size than the usb. but that doesnt matter22:46

Xpistosk1l_: I whiped the main drive and reformated it to one big partition 931.51 gb22:47
curlyearsk1l:   ok, got it.  I can still use the software they installed, if I remove their entries fro the repo list, right?22:47
Xpistosk1l_: it is telling me ubi-* pacakges are failing, language, partman etc22:48
k1l_curlyears: i guess they had a reason to ship that version. i dont know. i would ask them and maybe force the install as i sais.22:48
curlyearscan't ask them until tomorrow :(22:49
k1l_then do it tomorrow. as long as your system is running so far, there is no need to touch that now22:50

Islah1yeah on a USB i do22:54
andaiHi, how can I know if ubuntu is using the right drivers for my graphics card? I get screen tearing. In the Drivers utility there's nothing about graphics22:54
daxwhat card?22:55

chili555Islah1: do the same with pool > main > d > dkms and drag and drop the dkms .deb file to your desktop. Next...22:57

zykotick9andai: does "lspci -v | grep -i vga" say you have Intel?  if so, you're probably using the right driver (from the kernel).  i don't think i've ever had "no tearing" in my years with various graphics cards/setups under X.  ymmmv?22:58
Islah1will that work?22:58
k1l_!nomodeset | Xpistos do it like described in this link just with pci=noaer instead of nomodeset22:58
ubottuXpistos do it like described in this link just with pci=noaer instead of nomodeset: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter22:58
chili555Islah1: It should, but I'll help you if there is a snag.22:58
Islah1(I dont have software center cause im on lubuntu) :P22:59
Islah1Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: gcc22:59

chili555Islah1: sudo dpkg -i bcmwl-kernel-source*.deb and then reboot.23:00
Islah1got an error when trying to install dkms @chili55523:00
chili555Islah1: Uhhhh, what is it??23:01
Xpistosk1l_: I added it right after the quiet splash and lets see what we get23:01
Islah1dkms depends on gcc; however; gcc is not installed. dkms depends on make | build-essential | dpkg-dev; however; package make is not installed. Package build-essential is not installed. Package dpkg-dev is not installed23:01
k1l_Xpistos: yeah. that was the reason for the full disk. it was making that much errors in the logs, that the live system ran out of space23:02
Xpistosk1l_: I am already further along!!! Thanks I will report back23:02
chili555Islah1: All those things are already installed on plain old Ubuntu. Are you sure lubuntu is good for you? Or else, are you certain you can't get an ethernet connection for a few moments? From a friend?23:03
Xpistosk1l_: crap. happened again. but atleast I have an idea of where this maybe be going23:03
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest67784
Islah1The laptop im using (notebook) doesn't have an ethernet port23:04
Islah1Or else i would have used it long ago23:04
Islah1I just want a lightweight distro for this thing :(23:04
Xpistosk1l_: same crap but I will keep searching23:05
lordcirthIslah1, there are USB-to-Ethernet adapters, if you're ok with spending $20.23:05
lordcirthOr borrowing one23:05
Islah1I'll have to see if any friends have one, anyone else know of another good lightweight distro?23:05
chili555Islah1: The only thing left is to go to http://packages.ubuntu.com and get all those packages, build-essential, gcc, make, etc. appropriate to your Ubuntu version and architecture (32- or 64-bit) and install each one. Sorry.23:06
* zykotick9 has wanted a usb->ethernet for quite a while, he's never actually seen one to purchase, in real life (and be able to confirm it would work with only free drivers) :(23:06
chili555Islah1: You might try xubuntu.23:06
lordcirthzykotick9, I've only used them at work23:06
Islah1is xubuntu lightweight? @chili55523:06
fffbroadcom might work23:07
lordcirthIslah1, lubuntu's lxde is lighter than xubuntu's xfce, but it is still quite light.23:07
Islah1Alright, ill look at it. This little notebook only has 2GB of ram23:07
Islah1so i want it as light as possible =p23:07
Xpistosk1l_: that bug was posted to as recently as yesterday so I will follow it and hopefully there will be a solution soon. Thanks again!23:07
fffmate uses around 600mb of ram23:07
lordcirthIslah1, https://www.bunsenlabs.org/23:08
lordcirthOr Arch with Openbox or a tiling WM :P23:08
chili555Islah1: yes, I use it on a 32-bit old Thinkpad and it runs very well with its wheezing CPU fan which threatens to die every day!23:08
k1l_Xpistos: i would look if there is some bios update for that machine23:08

Xpistosk1l_: will do. It has been wiped so may be hard to get the flash to go23:09
chili555Islah1: And then I removed everything I thought I wouldn't need, mailreader, etc.23:09
Islah1Yeah i only intend on using it for light browsing/coding23:09
Islah1and taking notes in class23:09
ross`can someone tell me why the xen installer kernel/ramdisk segfaults during dhcp configuration?23:09
fffor icewm23:10
chili555Islah1: Good luck, my friend!23:11
lordcirthbrenda, running them in a browser doesn't work?  You could use youtube-dl to download them, then play them with vlc23:12
brendalordcirth, in Chrome and Firefox I get a CPU load of 80-100%23:14
lordcirthbrenda, yeah, try youtube-dl23:14
brendalordcirth, mpv installs youtube-dl... but I do not get it to work...23:16
lordcirthbrenda, using it through mpv, or by itself?23:16
brendalordcirth, mpv link --no-video give me a lot of youtube-dl errors23:17
brendalordcirth, que mpv23:17
fffdownloads as mp423:18
lordcirthbrenda, so you only want the audio to play?23:18
brendalordcirth, with mpv23:18
brendalordcirth, no, audio and video23:18
lordcirthbrenda, then why --no-video ?23:19
Xpistosk1l_: Bios is current as of 2013. just have to wait and see what comes out of bug report23:19
brendafff, it is nice to download some videos but it is not what I want23:20
brendalordcirth, acording to man mpv --no-video sends the link to be procesed by youtube-dl23:21
bytesaberdoes Conanical dislike projects such as lubuntu, xubuntu, ubuntu-gnome ?23:21
brendalordcirth, am I doing it wrong?23:22
lordcirth{l,k,x}buntu are official23:22
lordcirthbrenda, yes, --no-video is sound-only, like for music videos23:22
bytesaberlordcirth, I was actually googling trying to find somekind of "stance" or statement on that.  By chance know of something that helps claim that?23:22
lordcirthbrenda, however, it's not working for me either, looks like yt changed their formats.  There's a new version of youtube-dl that's not packaged yet23:23
OerHeksbytesaber, strange question, those are official supported.23:23
ubottuRecognized Ubuntu flavors build on Ubuntu and provide a different user experience out of the box. They are supported both in #ubuntu and in their flavor channel. The current list is: !Edubuntu, !Ubuntu-GNOME, !Kubuntu, Ubuntu !Kylin, !Lubuntu, !Mythbuntu, Ubuntu !Studio, !Xubuntu, and Ubuntu !MATE23:23
bytesaberTrying to comprehend what the difference between Xubuntu, and Ubuntu with XFCE installed, is.23:23
toxikThere's different software used23:23
toxikThat's about it23:23
bytesaberIn the end, wouldn't it be the same in either case?23:24
z0ran16.04 is totally awesome, it doesnt use at all cpu like 14.04 use to and it is easy on ram too....great job!23:24
bytesaberXubuntu 14, out of the can, seems to have a different menu bar, than Ubuntu with XFCE installed after install.23:24
jottrHi all. On ubuntu what does echo $OS_TYPE return?23:24
lordcirthKylin is official? Interesting23:25
Islah1Installing xubuntu, hopefully it works :)23:25
lordcirthjottr, linux-gnu23:25
jottrlordcirth: thx23:25
toxikI've had very few problems with Xubuntu23:25
brendalordcirth, YT does that once in while :-/23:26
lordcirthz0ran, and most importantly, ZFS support!23:26
bytesaberOr better yet, why wouldn't it be something like www.ubuntu.org/xubuntu   /lubuntu   ..etc23:26
z0ranI know....totally rocks23:26
z0ranI canto23:26
lordcirthbytesaber, as opposed to what?23:27
z0ranI cannot believe how big diference is on my cpu23:27
lordcirthOh, instead of websites23:27
z0ranthat is unbelievable23:27
z0ranand I have ff, chromium, chrome and vbox running23:28
z0ransuch a great job they did this time....bravo!23:28
bytesaberlordcirth, They jsut all feel like fan websites / projects, following ubuntu's work.   It's not a complaint.  Just trying to grasp what's going on in the world.23:28
toxik16.04 is absolutely rock solid, and it makes me extremely happy23:30
Islah1aaaaand xubuntu didnt recognize drivers either :( @chili55523:31
lordcirthbrenda, I got it working!23:31
lordcirthbrenda, I installed pip and used pip to install the latest youtube-dl23:31
robotbetaI am using Lubuntu Netbook on this 2002 Sony PCG-FXA63. I feel content with life.23:32
Islah1time to try your suggestion @lordcirth23:32
bytesaberlinux and ssd's.  giving live to old PC's23:32
brendalordcirth, I was thinking of doing the same thing :)23:32
robotbetaI am going to upgrade the hard drive, ram, and maybe the CPU.23:33
brendalordcirth, what is the pip command for downloading the latest version?23:33
lordcirthrobotbeta, that model allows cpu upgrades?23:33
robotbetaThen, I will go try updating to 14.04 (I am at 12.04)23:33
lordcirthbrenda, pip install youtube-dl23:33
robotbetaI am looking into it.23:33
robotbetaI am sure.23:34
brendalordcirth, what is 2 simple :)23:34
robotbetaYou just gotta make sure you know what you are doing.23:34
lordcirthrobotbeta, if you're upgrading from 12, and replacing the harddrive, why not just fresh install 16.04?23:34
robotbetaWell, I don't want to rush in.23:34
robotbetaI see what is going to be best.23:34
lordcirthI don't see any reason to install 14.04 when 16.04.1 is out23:35
robotbetaThe computer is old.23:35
robotbeta14 years23:35
Islah1alright lets give burner a try @lordcith23:36
lordcirthrobotbeta, z0ran was just saying that 16.04 was faster than 14.04 for him.23:36
lordcirthrobotbeta, but if it's 14 years old, I'd be using Xubuntu.23:36
lordcirthAlthough I question the value of a CPU upgrade to a computer that old.23:37
toxikXubuntu, or alternatively Lubuntu23:37
robotbetaI like Lubuntu best.23:37
lordcirthAnything compatible with it will be nearly as old and have to find23:37
robotbetaI found the processor, in the same family as it.23:37
Islah1for install should i do normal install or graphical install @lordcirth23:38
Islah1for bunsenlabs23:38
toxikCan you unmount it from the socket, though?23:38
robotbetaBut it still is an upgrade by 333 mega hertz23:38
lordcirthIslah1, may as well do graphical.  It's just a standard debian installer23:38
Islah1ah ok23:38
lordcirthrobotbeta, from what?23:38
robotbetaIt is an AMD processor 1.4 giga hertz23:38
robotbetaright now23:38
lordcirthfrom 1.4 to 1.7Ghz?  Not sure that's worth the money and hassle23:39
toxikIf anything, I would recommend just getting a SSD if you haven't already23:39
robotbetaI don't think I can.23:40
toxikWhat model is your laptop again?23:40
robotbeta2002 Sony PCG-FXA6323:40
robotbetaOriginally came with Windows XP.23:40
zykotick9toxik: the SSD upgrade is always fantastic (assuming the system has sata to do it!) much better than cpu or ram IMO.23:41
robotbetaFrom what I have researched, it can only do HDD.23:41
zykotick9robotbeta: :(23:41
robotbetaI have only found HDDs23:41
z0ranssd goes with fast cpu for best results23:42
z0ranintel cpu23:42
ross`why does the xen install kernel keep segfaulting at random times?!?23:42
robotbetaI have an AMD.23:42
robotbetaAMD Athlon, which is 32 bit.23:42
z0ranamd is to slow...i know the diference when i get i7 from amd23:42
robotbetaI like AMDs personally.23:42
z0ranthat is huge difference23:43
Islah1Doesnt look like bunsenlabs will detect my network hardware either @lordcirth :(23:43
toxikAMD will compete with Intel on performance soon23:43
z0rani mean hugeee....like i was in stone age with amd23:43
lordcirthz0ran, there are fast AMD CPUs too.23:43
robotbetaThere are.23:43
z0rannot like intel....not even close23:43
lordcirthI am waiting for Zen to come out next year to build my new PC.23:43
* zykotick9 is stuck with intel pre-i3 cause he doesn't want any ME stuff :(23:43
z0rani7 is king of cpu....trust me i jad amd for long time23:44
lordcirthzykotick9, management engine?23:44
robotbetaAMD makes some good things.23:44
zykotick9lordcirth: yup.23:44
robotbetaI am gonna go.23:44
z0rancost money but it is worth every dime23:44
toxikrobotbeta: After doing some research onto your laptop, I think you'd be better off to buy a new laptop than try to upgrade yours.23:44
brendaz0ran, u r right, SSD performance on AMD chipset is not as good as INte´23:44
toxikI don't see any noticeable difference between my i5 build and my fx-8350 with SSD's23:45
lordcirthzykotick9, have you looked at ARM64?23:45
lordcirthSATA speed is not bound by CPU manufacturer23:46
lordcirthNVMe, maybe.23:46
Islah1I might just have to install windows @lordcirth and see if it is a network card issue23:47
z0ranintel skylike i7 and nvme...that is something23:48
toxikWhat's your problem, Islah1?23:48
zykotick9lordcirth: not really.  i have an "ARMv7 Processor rev 2 (v7l)" powering my irc box ;)  it's a Beagle Bone Black (bbb).  i don't think any of the arm64 boards meet my freedom requirement right now :(23:48
Islah1toxik it seems no linux distros i've tried today will recognize my broadcom network card (Im on a notebook laptop with no ethernet port)23:48
Islah1ive tried lubuntu, xubuntu, and now bunsenlabs23:48
Islah1but other distros like ElementaryOS recognized it just fine23:49
=== Rand0m` is now known as P4n[t]3r
toxikJust wondering, have you tried a a WiFi dongle?23:49
toxikThey're great for fixing driver issues. Absolute lifesaver23:50
Islah1I had one but i cant find it :s23:50
Islah1ill look around for it23:50
lordcirthzykotick9, there's also the RISC-V project, you should keep an eye on that23:52
zykotick9lordcirth: thanks.  but this is OT for #ubuntu ;)  ps. i keep my ear close to the ground on those things23:53
brendalordcirth, I installed pip and installed the latest youtube.dl and it now works also for me23:53
brendalordcirth, thank u 4 that tip23:54
=== ^5 is now known as Bitch
lordcirthbrenda, np.  Saw it on youtube-dl github23:54
zykotick9brenda: fyi, you certainly don't need pip to install the latest youtube.dl, it's just a script you can drop in ~/bin23:55
lordcirthzykotick9, yeah, they apparently recommend pip though.  updates and so on23:55
Islah1hey @toxik23:57
zykotick9lordcirth: while i see there point.  i don't really believe it's a good idea to have to conflicting packages managers on one system (my only exception to that rule was a brief experiment with Guix).23:57
Islah1i may have found a USB to ethernet cord23:57
Islah1would that work possibly23:57
lordcirthIslah1, hopefully23:57
zykotick9lordcirth: s/good idea to have to/good idea to have two/23:57
ross`can someone please please please tell me why the xenial xen installer kernel and ramdisk keep segfaulting at different random times during the installation process23:58
ross`I have tried to install ubuntu 8 times now23:58
ross`and it keeps segfaulting at different parts23:59
toxikHave you tried flashing a new image to install it yet?23:59
