Bashing-omchalcedony: Just checking ... and in recovery mode did you reset the root partition rw ?01:25
Bashing-omChrisP_: ^^ Apologies to chalcedony .01:27
ChrisP_afaict it's in rw mode01:36

moestevensI've definitely gotta remember the correct commands for that thing.01:58
Bashing-omChrisP_: Yeah .. should be 'ro' .. Not real sure now to see that root is now Read/Write . And /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is depreciated .. used in those special occassions .01:58
YankDownUnderbabilen: Esta en #ubuntu-es-es01:59
ChrisP_am I just screwed?02:00
Bashing-omChrisP_: So long as you can boot to a terminal and the system is stable in this environment .. then it is but a GUI layer on top of the kernel that has an issue .02:01
Jordan_UChrisP_: Try pressing 'e' at the grub menu and change "...98f root" to "...98f ro" then press ctrl+X to boot.02:03
Jordan_UChrisP_: Any idea why you have "root" in your kernel parameters in the first place?02:04
ChrisP_got it I really need to get gnome to start its like X just doesn't want to start02:05
ChrisP_nope no idea why its there02:07
Jordan_UChrisP_: I'm wondering if it might be interpreted as a synonym for "single", which would mean you're asking for X (and many other things) not to start.02:08
ChrisP_timeout in locking authority file02:08
ChrisP_when I do startx02:09
Jordan_UChrisP_: Before doing anything else, follow the steps I gave to boot without that kernel parameter. If you're lucky then it will fix everything and then we'll just have to make the fix permanent.02:09
Jordan_UChrisP_: I wouldn't expect startx to work anyway.02:09
ChrisP_geez I'm getting too old for this its driving me nuts02:11
ChrisP_ok I'll try that just saw what you said02:12
MilkTeaNoBoba_Hi, using kubuntu 16.04 server. Was wondering if anyone could recommend a remote desktop solution? I've been playing with KRFB, but it seems clunky.02:12
ChrisP_it's just 'ro' after 98f not root02:21
Jordan_UChrisP_: OK. What happens when you run "systemctl start lightdm"?02:22
ChrisP_entered my password as asked got Authentication complete then job for lightdm.service failed because the control process exited with error code. see systemctl status and journalctl-despite02:30

Jordan_Un-iCe: What do you expect "sudo apt-get build-dep ubuntu-desktop" to accomplish?02:47
aroonialexxey: yes indeed02:48
ChrisP_there's more basically says it failed to start. lightdm.service: start request repeated too quickly02:49
Jordan_UChrisP_: What is the output of "cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager" ?02:49

kazdoes anyone know how to fix ethernet issues on dualbooting?03:48
glitchdkaz, such as?03:48
OerHeksbut bootissues, kaz, maybe this windows 10 thing, called fastboot ( not secureboot) can do that03:48
OerHeksit occupies the hdd/ssd/wifi/network and other stuff03:49
kazi'm dual booting win10 and ubuntu, and the ethernet doesn't connect.03:49
kazi have that disabled. it's the BIOS option right?03:49
glitchdkaz, are u having problems access windows folder from linux as all?03:49
OerHeksin windows itself03:49
kazi'll look at it03:49
kazit connects at first, and then it says it's disconnected03:50
glitchdkaz, im dual booting windows 10 and ubuntu 16.04 with xubuntu desktop, im not having any problems with ethernet or wifi03:50
kazwhen i run iwconfig it says "eno1 No wireless connections" which is weird because that's a wired connection.03:51
Ben64kaz: because iwconfig is for wireless03:51
kazhow do i check for wired connections?03:51
glitchdkaz, what about ifconfig?03:51
OerHekskaz, also the issue with fastboot, wifidevice occupied03:52
kazi'll check fastboot and ifconfig03:52
glitchdkaz, something i learned about windows 1003:52
glitchdkaz, when u shutdown or reboot, it puts the hard drive and i think possibly devices in a "suspend like" state, as to start up faster. if you want to actually power them off when u power off the system, you have to do a reboot instead of a shutdown.03:53
glitchdkaz, i was being specific to windows 1003:54
OerHeksdisabling fastboot would do that indeed, shutdown completely03:54
kazeven if you do the thing where you hold it so that it turns off completely?03:54
glitchdyes, but if u dont want to turn fastboot off03:54
glitchdfor whatever reason..03:54
glitchdkaz, that im not sure about..03:54
OerHeks"except if you want to use ubuntu wifi"03:55
glitchdkaz, i dont power my machine off like that unless forced to do so03:55
OerHeksbut hey, test it out, or keep on asking :-D03:55
glitchdkaz, you could however,03:55
kazifconfig says some stuff03:55
kazwhat should i look for?03:55
glitchdkaz, tell it to reboot then when u get to grub just press the power button to shut the machine down03:55
kazthat didn't work either.03:58
glitchdkaz, which one isnt working?03:59
kazglitchd, shutting down in grub03:59
kazglitchd: i did have fast startup on so i'm turning that off03:59
glitchdkaz, probably a good move.04:00
glitchdkaz, does ifconfig list any info at all?04:00
glitchdkaz, or does it return an error?04:00
kazglitchd: it shows some information but i don't know what i'm supposed to look for in it04:01
glitchdkaz, does it show device names?04:01
glitchdkaz, like your wireless card or ethernet port names?04:01

glitchdkaz, might be better than typing it all out tho..04:11
kazi can type quickly04:11
Ben64it should be 004:11
kazwhat's a metric?04:11
glitchdmine is 104:11
avionici am using 16.04 lts... when will it notify me of the .1 update?04:11
Ben64metric is like priority04:12
glitchdavionic, i upgrade directly from 15.10 to 16.04.1 from the gui04:12
avionicglitchd: "software & updates" ?04:13
Ben64avionic: if you do "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade" you should have .104:13
OerHeksavionic, cat /etc/issue  will tell you what you have04:13
kazI read that it might have something to do with drivers?04:13
Ben64seems unlikely04:13
avionic:~$ cat /etc/issue Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS \n \l04:13

ybaumyhi again. http://paste.ubuntu.com/21990244/ can somebody take a look at it please04:15
glitchdkaz, did it ever work?04:15
kazit works for the first second or two i connect to the network04:15
=== david__ is now known as dmcglone
kazthen it turns off04:15
kazlike it loads the first page04:15
kazor if i had a page open from the last time that i tried going to it loads that, but then nothing04:16
kazor if i had a page open from the last time that i tried going to it loads that, but then nothing04:16
kazand it says it's connected04:16
kazi reinstalled a different kind of linux just to fix it04:16
avionicAny programs you recommend that test cpu performance?04:16
kazdidn't wok04:16
glitchdkaz, but it works from a live cd?04:17
glitchdkaz, or does it do the same thing?04:17
kazi have a drive and it works with that04:17
kazduring the installer04:18
glitchdkaz, live-usb?04:18
kazwell i dunno if it's live04:18
kazbut the usb to install ubuntu has that thing04:18
glitchdright but all that matters is that it works04:18
kaz"try ubuntu without install"04:18
kazyeah that works04:18
glitchdlive\installer usb04:19
glitchdsame thing basically04:19
kazit has to work, because there's an option that said "download updates and drivers during installation"04:19
kazand i clicked that and it seemed to work04:19
glitchdkaz, if it were me, i would boot the usb and take a look at ifconfig, iwconifg, resolv.conf and see if there are any real differences between the 2 systems04:20
glitchdtake pictures with ur phone if you dont want to write it all down04:20
Ben64i still think it's a problem with route04:20
kazwill do04:20
glitchdBen64, i was thinking really it was gonna be a problem with the resolv.conf, but he says that he gets connected for a second then kicked basically04:21
glitchdkaz, last resort i would reinstall..04:21
kazi typed in some command and it said "eth1 renamed to eno1"04:21
kazand i already did reinstall04:21
kazthis is my third install04:21
kaz2 different kinds of linux04:21
glitchddo u know what command made the name change?04:21
kazalright the live-usb is going to take a while to make04:23
kazi'm using rufus04:23
glitchdi have a faster way you can do it04:23
glitchdkaz, do u have an iso?04:24
kazglitchd: yeah04:24
kazglitchd: i got the iso from the website04:24
glitchdsudo dd if=name.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=1M;sync04:24
kazglitchd: internet works on my windows boot, so if i boot up in windows that works fine04:25
glitchdchange the name of the iso and the device name "sdx"04:25
kazglitchd: internet works on my windows boot, so if i boot up in windows that works fine04:25
kazyou want me to rename it to sdx?04:25
OerHeksso try iwconfig eno1 instead of eth1 >> https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames/04:25
OerHeksthis is new stuff in 16.0404:26
kazi heard that iwconfig was wireless?04:26
kazi'm concerned with wired connection, although wireless isn't working either04:26
glitchdkaz, im sorry i forgot your in windows..04:26
OerHeksor what your wifi adapter is called now*04:26
glitchdkaz, just use rufus like you were gonna do04:27
kazcurrently i am using ubuntu on my laptop04:27
glitchdkaz, omg..04:27
kazthe disk is done04:27
glitchdkaz, if your in ubuntu then use the command i gave04:27
glitchdkaz, if your in windows use rufus, clear?04:27
kazyeah it's done04:28
glitchdok try to boot it04:28
glitchdkaz, what did u rename "sdx" to?04:32
kazit wasn't called sdc04:32
kazand the live-usb only loads one page as well04:33
kazroute shows the same thing except one row, local something04:33
glitchdkaz, well if the live usb work, it doesnt matter what u renmaed it to because it worked04:34
kazit only worked for one page04:34
kazit's not working anymore04:34
kazjust like the regular system04:34
glitchdkaz, im sorry but did u say u are physically connected or your on wifi?04:35
glitchddont want to screll back..04:35
kazphysically connected04:35
kazi have an ethernet cable04:36
glitchdthats what i thought..04:36
kazifconfig on my regular ubuntu without live-usb has an extra row04:36
glitchdmaybe its your ip?04:36
kazit's called link-local, metric 100004:37
glitchdprobably not tho..04:37
kazmy ip?04:37
kazhow would i check that?04:37
glitchdsry i was thinking something else..04:37
glitchdsince you said you could browse for a second then it cuts04:37
glitchdbut i think if it was an ip problem you would be able to browse even for a second because you connection would be refused04:38
tikunhe's getting an IP address then?04:38
glitchdlol i dont know if i asked him that directly04:39
kazi have no idea how to check that04:39
tikunkaz, ifconfig04:39
tikunwhat's the IP address04:39
kazis that the "inet addr"04:39
glitchdlook for inet addr:04:39
kazthere's another one "lo" that shows localhost04:40
glitchdwhat is it on you other computer?04:40
kazon my other computer?04:40
glitchdthat one is fine04:40
glitchdwhat is you ip on the other computer04:40
kazis the computer i'm currently using04:40
tikuncan you ping it04:41
glitchdok just wanted to make sure u were connecting to the right network04:41
kazping myself?04:41
kazor ping the other computer?04:41
tikunno, the other computer.04:41
tikunping .98 from .105 or vice versa04:41
glitchdjust in case it was instead04:41
tikunis this from a livecd?04:41
glitchdlets call first computer linux and second computer windows04:42
kazbut my second computer is running ubuntu04:42
kazmy first computer is dualboot04:42
tikunwhat can you not access, the internet or the other computer?04:42
kazthe computer that's not working is a pc, dualboot win10/ubuntu04:43
glitchdand thats the one your trying to get linux internet with, right?04:43
kazinternet doesn't work on the pc04:43
kazfor ubuntu04:43
kazworks for the windows half of that computer04:43
glitchdok and the "other" physical computer is a what? laptop?04:43
glitchdor we've been talk about just 1 computer this whole time04:44
kazno 2 computers04:44
kaz1 pc 1 laptop04:44
kazpc = dualboot, laptop = ubuntu04:44
kazlaptop is what i'm currently using04:44
glitchdok that makes a lil more sense04:44
avionicwhat's on second04:44
cpdleveyHello all!04:45
avioniche can't get wifi to work or ethernet?04:45
glitchdkaz, i wonder if dmesg has any clues04:45
tikunkaz, can you ping another LAN IP?04:45
tikunyes or no04:45
tikuncan you ping the gateway IP04:46
kazi can't ping another ip after a minute or two04:46
glitchdom the ubuntu laptop, ping the desktop ubuntu machine04:46

glitchdi would boot back into non working ubuntu and check the output of dmesg04:49
tikuncpdlevey, hangs as in a minute or two and you ctrl-c out of it or 30 minutes or more04:49
OerHeksnetwork manager > edit connections > delete04:49
tikuncpdlevey, and that's a normal output from mdadm as you don't have any raid arrays defined, more than likely.04:50

KrampusI managed to install a "weird" version of libgl1-mesa-* that's preventing steam from launching.  How can I tell it to replace the locally installed versions with the ones from the apt repository?05:06
KrampusAnd if i try to uninstall it, it of course tells me I'm going to uninstall all my packages first. :)05:07
spyhermityou've tried apt-get install --reinstall ?05:08
glitchdkaz, ...huh?05:09
Krampusspyhermit: it complains that it can't because it cannot be downloaded.05:09
spyhermitalternately you can try installing ppa-purge, then follow the documentation to remove the ppa packages, which will then install the ubuntu versions05:10
spyhermitif you installed it from a ppa that is05:10
kazglitchd: i did the install commands for the b43 package05:10
Krampusspyhermit: I must have... this was three weeks ago and i haven't managed to run into this yet. :P05:10
kazglitchd: they tell you to install it with wired first05:10
spyhermitthird alternate, get the versions from the debian repo, and do apt-get install pckage_name=version which should install the current version05:11
OerHekswhy not the package libgl1-mesa-* from the ORIGINAL ubuntu repo ?05:11
spyhermitfourth, download the packages, and use dpkg --force05:12
glitchdkaz, then substitute the wireless device name for the wire one and repeat the command05:12
OerHekslets make a frankenstein-ubuntu :-D05:12
OerHeksoh wait, he already did05:12
kazit needs you to use apt. it's not a device name thing05:12
glitchdkaz, for one reason or another i thought that you had gotten the package on the other computer and were copy it to the usb drive and bring it over05:13
kazi tried to05:14
cglockehey guys. its save to delete ~/.log/jack/jackdbus.log - right?05:14
kazthere's some command that forces you to run it on that computer05:14
cpdleveytikun: http://paste.ubuntu.com/21993234/ — Nope....05:14
glitchdkaz, that didnt work either?05:14
tikuncpdlevey, what's the output of dpkg --configure -a it just freezes on mdadm? if so, post the output of dmesg05:15
spyhermitcglocke: yes, it's fine, but you might look into log rotation.05:15
glitchdkaz, either way youve tried said that you need a connection online to install it05:15
KrampusOerHeks: that's the goal. :)  PPA purge got it.05:15
cglockespyhermit .. log rotation?05:15
cglockeI want to get rid of the file because it grew up to 25 gbyte05:15
kazglitchd: that is the problem05:15
cpdlevey@tikun correct, it just hangs/freezes there: http://paste.ubuntu.com/21993295/05:16
spyhermityeah, sorry, that wasn't an end user suggestion, cglocke05:16
glitchdkaz, fudge05:16
spyhermityes, you can remove it05:16
cglockenp spyhermit :D05:16
spyhermitif it's in use you can do echo /dev/null > into the file05:16
cglockethx, jack is not running atm :)05:17
spyhermitbut it's probably better to stop kxstudio and then delete the file.05:17
cglockeis it common behavior that this log file grows that large?05:17
spyhermitcglocke: I'm reading a bug from 2010 where it was growing to 500 gb, looks like it's very common with this program05:19
cglockewtf 500 gb? XD05:19
spyhermitthe maintainer said they would look at setting up log rotation, but you may not be using kxstudio which did that, you're probably using jack, which doesn't have external rotation enabled05:19
cglockewell, I the earliest entry in my log is january 2016 ... so 25 GB within half a year ... :D ok those 500 gb are waaaay too much ^^05:19
spyhermitthus my suggestion, which would be difficult for me to explain to an end user.05:20
cglockeyes, I'm using plain jack with ardour05:20
spyhermitand I'm a bit of a jerk.05:20
cglockeI'll delete the file by hand and I'll remember doing this from time to time.. that solution is totally fine for me :D05:20
cglockethx spyhermit!05:21
glitchdkaz, do you by chance know what you dns is?05:21
kazi don't know what dns is05:22
kazexcept that it has to do with dnslookup05:22
spyhermitcat /etc/resolv.conf, should be some numbers in it05:22
glitchdkaz, click you network icon and go to connection information05:23
kazis Primary DNS05:24
kazi think it's a driver issue05:24
kazthere's a lot of people with a driver issue with the alx driver on linux 4.405:25
spyhermitsounds like it to me, I would see if you could unload the alx driver and switch to a generic05:25
kazhow uh05:26
kazi don't understand what you just said05:26
spyhermitwhich is probably what the install cd uses, which is why it would work05:26
kazno the install cd has the same issue05:26
spyhermityeah, I'm trying to think of how to explain this, and possibly even help you fix it05:26

ventilHi, I've been having trouble with my hard drive and am trying to recover all files from it before getting a new one. I've booted an Ubuntu LiveUSB and had to do a long e2fsck on the corrupted Ubuntu (hard drive) before I was able to mount the installation. Now I can't see any of my files under /home/, and there is no /etc/ directory on the mounted partition. Is this normal?07:25
YankDownUnderventil: Have you rebooted the machine again - and again used the liveUSB to view the drive? As well, when you ran "e2fsck" - did you use the "automatically fix" switch?07:27
UQlevventil: it depends on original filesystem on your hdd, also whether you fixed incostistencies or just checked07:28
ventilYankDownUnder: yeah I ran e2fsck -fyv /dev/sda1 , then I had to write some zeroes to beginning of it so the superblock could be rewritten, and then was able to mount it07:28
madsjI've been trying frantically to compile and load the module for VirtualBox, but without success; I'm on 16.04 and I get: vboxdrv.sh: failed: modprobe vboxdrv failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why.07:28
ventilAnd I have rebooted the machine and used the liveusb to look at it again but with the same result07:28
madsjfrom what I can read, it's something related to Linux 4.4 requiring modules to be signed before they can be loaded07:29
YankDownUnderventil: Right - so you see nothing - or, at least you don't see the /etc or the /home?07:29
Emmanuel_Chanelikonia: log: http://pastebin.com/xamtP4Qx07:29
ventilAdditionally it says that ~130gb is used, but I can obnly see ~70gb used in the Disk Usage Analyzer07:29
ventilYankDownUnder: I don't see /etc/, I see /home/ with some other accounts that were set up before I received the computer, but not my account or a friend's account that I set up07:30
ventilSorry, to clarify, gparted says 130gb is used, Disk Usage Analyzer says 70gb is used07:30
YankDownUnderventil: Just for info, your "installation" was on a single drive, right? And /home resides on the root partition, right?07:31
ventilso I assume the missing 60gb are my files somewhere...07:31
ventilYankDownUnder: that's right, and yep I expect to see /home/myaccount and /etc/ but see neither (I assume that means root partition?)07:31
YankDownUnderventil: Just off the bat, have you looked in the "lost+found" directory yet?07:32
ventilYankDownUnder: no, should that be in the root directory as well, where /etc/ should be and /home is? I don't see it07:33
=== jatt is now known as Guest44685

slazeris there a way to "disable" the password prompt?07:48
YankDownUnderslazer: Did you put in the password that you used on your encrypted home directory?07:49
slazercoz' my mom would kill me if she sees it..the other solution would be to disable shutdown/restart altogether in favour of hibernation07:49
ducasseBomber4Chats: then there is little else we can do for you, really. did you try ##linux as i suggested yesterday?07:49
slazerYankDownUnder: yes and it worked07:49
Bomber4ChatsI'll head over, thanks07:50
YankDownUnderslazer: You're going to get that prompt because it's "mounting" the parition(s) - and that's how it's going to be.07:50

slazerYankDownUnder: that sux, any way to fix that, autologin and mount home folder on demand?07:51

abheetwhile installation it gives fatal error i.e " unable to install Grub on /dev/sda2/" .  To fix it i have tried to create partition on hdd with Ubuntu Live session (i.e. Try Ubuntu without installing), actually i have mounted /dev/sda1/ with disks utility i.e mark * to it.  which messed up booting process,now even when i am trying to boot Ubuntu 16.01 with Usb, it open initrams console.  Can you please help me to fix this ??09:59

kallehjeki have the same problem as abheet that install crashes when installing grub. any ideas?10:03
mcphailkallehjek: I'm a bit vague on the details, but there has to be adequate space before (and alignment of) the first partitiion on the disk or GRUB won't install. If you're using a disk which was partitioned a few years ago, it won't meet the requirements. You have to delete the partitions or the MBR and start again10:06
mcphailkallehjek: I've been caught out by this when reusing old disks for install10:06
mcphailkallehjek: you get a clue if you try to install grub manually from the command line, after the installer fails to do it10:07
mcphail(but I can't rememebr the specifics just now)10:08

IslahDoes anyone know a good usb wifi dongle that requires no drivers (plug & play) for ubuntu/lubuntu ?10:10
kallehjekmcphail so i need a few emtyp mb before first partition?10:10
ducassekallehjek: are you using mbr or gpt partition layout?10:10
mcphailkallehjek: as I said, I can't rememebr the specifics. But if you have an old disk with an MBR partition table, your GRUB install is likely going to fail. Gparted or the Ubuntu installer will do the correct thing with MBR or GPT these days if you wipe the partition table and restart10:11

bobbI just tried to upgrade to 16.04, but then I read the release notes which state that fglrx is not supported anymore.10:13
bobbThe open driver has always been complete crap. Are there any reports that it actually works now?10:14
kallehjekmcphail yeah when trying to install i remove the partition table and it creates a new one with 1 mb before the first one, i disliked this and creatyed a "correct one" from an old live cd thinking it might be a bug and then tried to isntall, but it is actually the correct way?10:14
bobbBy that, I mean demonstrations with a wide variety of games, etc. and noise levels.10:15

bobbk1l: that's what they said when they released the card I am using 5 years ago too.10:17

=== mac_nibblet is now known as Guest50685

bobbk1l: it works with 14.04 just fine.10:22
bobbk1l: I don't know what a cgn card is.10:23
k1lbobb: amd dropps support for video cards quite fast. so from one point your only choice is the open source driver then10:23
bobbk1l: which open source driver?10:23

k1lhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphics_Core_Next   so your 5000 amd card is too old10:24
mcphailbobb: worth trying it from a livecd. The open source drivers work very well for some older cards these days10:25
bobbmcphail: I basically just want to use it to play an old game.10:25
bobbmcphail: installation is a slow process.10:26
mcphailbobb: yep. Try it with the livecd before attempting the upgrade. I much prefer the open source drivers these days10:26
dreaiseee why camt i log in on ubuntu without problen10:26
bobbmcphail: e.g. wine also needs to be configured "just right".10:26
bobbmcphail: can I try these drivers *without* upgrading?10:26
k1lbobb: ubuntu isnt making those drivers. ubuntu only shipps what is there. so you have the open source driver made from the kernel guys, or (for new cards) there is amd support with amd_gpu.10:26
bobbmcphail: I am talking about recent versions, that is.10:26
ducassebobb: try a live image10:27
mcphailbobb: yes, you will get the modern open source drivers by default from the livecd. They won't be the very latest, but new enough to tell10:27
bobbmcphail: which card do you have?10:27
mcphailbobb: I use them with a couple of AMD APUs10:28
bobbmcphail: APUs are those integrated chips, right? Not discrete cards.10:28
bobbmcphail: I am concerned about the fan spinning at a million RPMs.10:28

k1lShadowbird123: you should be able to just switch the cards.12:26
Shadowbird123ok, nice12:27
Seekwhats up12:27
k1lShadowbird123: if the system is only giving a black screen on the boot, then you could need setting "nomodeset" on boot. then install the nvidia driver from the ubuntu repo12:27

horsewho want's a desktop that's impossible to remote into?  for the sake of what?  some "3D" rice?14:56

k1l_horse: they are working on the new unity8 which is using a total different technic in the underlaying system. so the state of the actual unity7 is more in "keep running" mode than to make heavy changes.14:57
k1l_horse: so there are some things with compiz etc that are not going to be changed since its way too much effort. they change those things in the new unity running on mir. (which is already running on the tablets and smartphones)14:58

alex___can anyone help me, i want to install ubuntu on my intel atom windows tablet, it has a keyboard attached to it, but when i put the usb in it and try to boot to it14:59
alex___it just goes to windows ignoring the flash drive, my other pc will boot the flash drive just fine, and the bios has no eufi setting14:59
k1l_horse: and back then, when that decission was made, there was no interest in remote using a 3d desktop since internet was slow and most pcs were slow.14:59

horsek1l_: but surely people must have wanted to log in minus the 3D stuff, what ever that actually is15:00
k1l_alex___: those tablets need some special handling to install ubuntu on it. so best is to look out if someone managed to get that working already and if he made a exact howto15:00
alex___i did i couldnt find anything15:01
k1l_horse: back then there was a 2d version, which is discontinued since gnome-base uses llvmpipe now since cpus are powerfull enough to make those 3d calculations in the cpu when the gpu is not for 3d15:01
alex___so theres no way to install it, i mean it has windows 10 on it but the bios has no eufi settings just a eufi shell, that says no mapping on any command i do15:03
alex___its like the smallest bios i ever seen only like 3 tabs and 4 configurable options15:03
k1l_alex___: i didnt say that. but most times they need some awkward 32bit uefi support and maybe other special treatment.15:03
k1l_alex___: you can look at what other tablets needed as handling. and if that works for you too15:04

Does anyone know why could this be and how to solve it? I didn't find any useful information online15:27
=== precise|6-0 is now known as precise
ducasseatralheaven_: that should follow the locale settings of the system, i would imagine.15:28
joeliomike_ser1: pastebin the error (assuming qt5 build dependencies can be got in 14.04)15:28
mike_ser1I have done this before without problems on another machine. Actually did this yesterday on a Ubuntu Server fresh installation15:29
joelioseems to be from a quick checl15:29
joeliook, so 1st thing did you do an apt-get update15:29
joeliobefore getting buildeps15:29
mike_ser1@joelio: http://pastebin.com/cBSgjxZv15:30
ducasseatralheaven_: try 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration'15:30
mike_ser1@joelio: I did an apt-get update and even upgrade when I got the error, but didn't help15:31
atralheaven_ducasse: it doesn't have this option, I mean for login screen, the password input place, being able to set english, or another language as default. so even when my screen is locked when I was on the other language, it would be on english on login screen. its not a problem, its a feature im asking the developers to put in ubuntu15:31

ducasseatralheaven_: the lock screen will use the default system keyboard layout by default, but if you have switched to another layout it will of course use that. you can file a report on launchpad, but...15:35
atralheaven_ducasse: imagine I locked my screen when I was typing in fr, now if I enter my password, it wont be in en, it would be in fr, and thats annoying. so if there was an option to set the default language for lock screen, that wouldn't happen. do you know what I mean?15:38
OerHekswhen you type in french, why would that bug you ?15:38
alex___hmm, my tablet has a ufi partition with microsoft folder in it, i was able to do some tricks to mount it in windows, maybe thats why it wont boot to any usb. and also my bios has no uefi settings, so thats not changable, im using a intel atom tablet trying to get ubuntu on it, but like i said it always goes to windows anythime i use a bootable usb.15:39
ducasseatralheaven_: yes, sort of, i just don't think it makes any sense. i would expect it to use whatever layout i had specified. there is also a menu for selecting layout if i'm not mistaken.15:39

hgdhhUNfortunatly I already tried the tutorials. They only have help for ubuntu, whcih i'm not running17:18
mike_papahgdhh: Well... to create live-USB you just need to burn iso image to it. Nothing else. To install program - it depends on which linux. In Ubuntu either "Ubuntu Software" (GUI) or "apt" (apt-get, or aptitude - CLI tools) are for that.17:18
mike_papahgdhh: Why are you asking in Ubuntu channel then?17:18
hgdhhYeah ubuntu seems very documented. I'm on SLAX and there's no help or guides whatsoever. So I'm really lost here... I already tried the guides but they don't work in this distro.17:19

ioriaexplodes,  check SystemSettings -> Sound19:09
ZtaAnd that's: "ever had"19:09
hwkwhen i plug it into a usb3 port i get the error above, when connected to the usb2 port it work, but with "crappy usb2" speeds19:09
hwkrunning on 14, too afraid to upgrade to 1619:10
explodesioria: in pavucontrol, I see the correct device, and the volume meter is jumping, but there is no actual audio19:10
QuinnStormxentity1x: your box may be UEFI...if so, there's a 50/50 chance you're bricked19:10
* QuinnStorm glares at UEFI19:10
xentity1xquinnstorm, what does that mean19:11
ioriaexplodes,  but sound is working  (in general) or is a specific stream issue ?19:11
Ztahwk: I was just about to pull my guts together and upgrade myself, but after 10 minutes with that live dist, I'm not at all convinced that this will even run on my computer.19:11
QuinnStorm(basically UEFI requires certain files in a special partition on the disk, without them it depends on the machine if it'll boot)19:11
explodesioria: sound works through the headphones19:11
ioriaexplodes,  no speakers ?19:11
hwkxentity1x: live dist :D for now19:11
QuinnStormyou may be able to recover with uefi files on an external disk19:11
explodessound does not work through the speakers19:11
* QuinnStorm nods "many live dists come with uefi boot files"19:12
xentity1xhwk, im not sure i understand19:12
Jordan_Uxentity1x: QuinnStorm: There is *not* a 50% chance your hardware is bricked.19:12
QuinnStormwell, in the old world, bios was in rom or flash ram and all was good19:12
QuinnStormJordan_U: sorry, I was being figurative19:12
Jordan_Uxentity1x: What exactly happens when you try to boot?19:12
* QuinnStorm steps back and lets Jordan_U handle this, apologizing19:12
ioriaexplodes,  have you checked alsamixer ?19:13
Jordan_UQuinnStorm: The boot firmware is still in flash on the motherboard with UEFI.19:13
xentity1xI get to a screen that says press del if you want to enter the bios. Whether I press it or not I get a black screen after.19:13
ZtaI've initiated an upgrade from 14 to 16.  I want to see if this really works.19:13
explodesioria: yea, everything looks good19:14
branHello, I was here a couple days ago, and I reported an issue with not being able to boot a Ubuntu live USB on a laptop (tried everything I could think of, including nomodeset). After ruling out every other possibility, I think the reason why it won't boot is because it has a openSUSE btrfs partition. Because I remember being able to boot Ubuntu 16.04 in this laptop before having the btrfs partition.19:14
QuinnStormJordan_U: but if its misconfigured and can't find a bootia32/64.efi it won't help19:14
branShould I report a bug or something? I can't find anything related with this online19:14
xentity1xI also have this stupid software asus express gate. it runs before the bios. It says the installation of that software is incomplete.19:14
Jordan_Uxentity1x: What model comouter (ideally what model motherboard if you know)?19:14
QuinnStormJordan_U: I've seen some that refuse to boot one on an external device19:14
hwkxentity1x: try pressing the button repeatetly and faster19:14
xentity1xasus m4a79t deluxe19:15
explodesioria: i guess it is possible my speaker system died.. but i had a weird issue in previous versions of ubuntu where the speaker output wouldnt work after unplugging headphones. i would have to use pavucontrol to reselect the device manually. now that is no longer working (16.04)19:15
QuinnStormof course this laptop is the exact opposite, it defaults to bios mode if it finds an mbr disk as its only disk19:15
xentity1xis my hard drive screwed?19:15
hwkZta: drop a line when your done and share if its stable19:15
hwkim running it as vm19:16
ioriaexplodes,  pavucontrol -> Configuration ?19:16
Ztahwk: Will do.19:16
QuinnStormxentity1x: not forever, almost certainly, its just a matter of recovery19:16
explodesioria: tried that, too19:16
QuinnStormI let my personal feelings toward uefi get in the way earlier and spoke hyperbolically19:16
xentity1xquinnstorm, any idea how i can do that? I cant even load the bios.19:16
ioriaexplodes, when exactly stopped working ?19:16
Ztahwk: How do start the vm?19:16
explodesioria: of all available output (not "unplugged") output devices, only the two headphones devices play actual audio19:17
Ztahwk: qemu?  and what options?19:17
QuinnStormxentity1x: work with Jordan_U , I think they are doing sensibly here19:17
explodesioria: the speaker devices, although receiving audio streams as indicating by their jumping volume meters, play no actual audio through the speakers19:17
eelstrebori recently installed 16.04 on an asus laptop but i can't seem to insert text into a field using shift-insert like on other pc's - the asus manual is no help and it appears that it's not a common problem since i can't find an answer with a search engine19:17

Jordan_Uxentity1x: Is the Ubuntu LiveUSB still plugged in? Do you have a bootable DVD you can try using?19:18
hwkmaybe i got a bad kernel version19:18
xentity1xjordan_u, i unplugged the usb. I dont have a dvd.19:19

explodesioria: my gf was playing a game with a headphone set with a microphone. when it was unplugged it got messed up, even through restarts19:19
Ztabooting ubuntu 16.04.1 image like that crashes19:19
explodesioria: im gonna try using a microphone i may have lying around, maybe that will trick the system or whatever19:19
Jordan_Uxentity1x: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/275878-31-asus-m4a79xtd-bios-help says that you need to start pressing delete immediately after powering on the machine.19:20
ioriaexplodes,   do you have a liveusb at hand ?19:20

SkylakeMXknobo: I use archlinux as my development / home OS, but I would strongly to don't recomment it too as server since the bleeding edge rolling :D21:23
borkedk1l_: no, Ubuntu choose to use systemd.21:23
borkedk1l_: why are you now blaming anything on systemd guys?21:23
k1l_borked: ubuntu can only ship the software as it is. if systemd is broken what do you expect ubuntu to do?21:23
SkylakeMXk1l_: to not roll that systemd update.21:23
Bassemhow can i know my vga memory21:23
knoboThat's why I want to upgrade to 16.10... to get systemd.21:23
borkedk1l_: no, Ubuntu could have ... tested it first.21:23
knoboThen I will have the same initscript on my dev/laptop as prod.21:24
borkedk1l_: the bugs I am talking about have existed for over a year.21:24
borkedk1l_: so, not releasing would have been my preferred solution.21:24
hggdhborked: please propose a test to test your issue. Both Ubuntu QA and the systemd folks would be happy21:24
k1l_SkylakeMX: there is no maintained other solution. if you know about inits then you would not say such a thing.21:24
knobo 21:24
knoboborked: what kind of bugs did you find?21:24
k1l_borked: stop that pointless rantings in here. its enough21:24
borkedk1l_: uhm, pointless ranting? I am just saying that Ubuntu upgrades are broken (the whole internet is full of blogs saying the same thing).21:25
SkylakeMXborked: there is currently a bug that causes a minute hang up because a systemd is trying to get a network device link, you mean that one?21:25
borkedknobo: one was the gcc-doc bug.21:25
borkedknobo: another one is that /var via bind mounts results in an emergency shell.21:25
arooniany way to network mount amazon cloud drive in ubuntu 16.04 ?21:25
borkedknobo: I still have that problem.21:25
borkedknobo: I asked a question above, which nobody answered.21:26
Bashing-omsarek: I would be concerned that Internet file system sharing is causing the system to go nuts . /22083430/ is filled with reports . Maybe ' df -h ' see if errors have filled up the log partition ??21:26
borkedPresumably because everyone believes that Ubuntu has no bugs.21:26
SkylakeMXborked: what was your question?21:26
hggdhborked: indeed. Why don't you ask on a channel that can actually look at the code involved?21:26
knoboborked: I don't understand the bug. "/var via bind mounts results in an emergency shell"21:26
borkedSkylakeMX: my 16.04.1 install starts with an emergency shell. I don't have any idea why.21:26
borkedknobo: then perhaps you lack the skills to help. Thanks for inquiring, though.21:27
hggdhborked: if you want help please stop with your ranting21:27
SkylakeMXborked: you mean the grub rescue one?21:27
borkedSkylakeMX: *no*21:27
knoboborked: nobody understands your bug description.21:27

borkedSkylakeMX: sorry, the system is broken.21:28
borkedSkylakeMX: how am I going to make a picture of that?21:28
SkylakeMXborked: with a phone?21:28
borkedSkylakeMX: and besides, you would know what I am talking about if you had a clue.21:28
borkedIf someone comes along with a clue, talk to me.21:28
k1l_arooni: what protocol is it? sftp? sshfs? nautilus works with sftp and such21:28
hggdhborked: last warning. Stop being agressive21:29
borkedOtherwise, please don't "try to help".21:29
SkylakeMXborked: some people try to help you but if you can't clarify your issue then we can't help21:29
borkedhggdh: why is just explaining that you aren't such great helpers agressive?21:29
borkedhggdh: it's not. Thanks.21:29
hggdhborked: please go elsewhere and return with patience and education.21:30
sarekAny way maybe i can minimize those reports or disable them so it doesnt shut down Bashing-om21:30
borkedIf you want to tell people that the Ubuntu upgrade actually works, I would say you should first do a search for all the bugs and if there is a result saying "upgrade", it probably isn't bug free.21:30
k1l_!attitude | borked21:30
ubottuborked: The guidelines for using the Ubuntu channels can be found here: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines21:30
SkylakeMXborked: the upgrade does actually work, but yes a clean install would be better tho.21:31
k1l_this is community support by volunteers. if you cant act according to common community standards and just get aggressive and rant then this might not be the right place for you. maybe you better try on askubuntu, ubuntuforums, discourse or mailinglists.21:31

knobodoes anyone here do upgrades inside tmux?21:38
sarekyeah i dont think that is addressing the issue in that link21:38
sarekim not even sure what to google21:38
sarekthe reason this is happening is because i have my ubuntu hard drive being shared smb wirelesly to my mac and a lot of activity on that smb hard drive21:39
arca_voragoscreen but samessame21:39
SkylakeMX_adb: is this relevant to your issue? http://askubuntu.com/questions/289190/how-to-change-system-language21:40

SkylakeMX_adb: please report back if it doesn't, I will keep looking for a solution then21:41
Bashing-omsarek: The lonk is not releavent . And sharing files with your Mac .. no experience, can not advise . But you can see in the logs the system is not happy with the way the interface is run .21:41
knobok1l_: how do I access that tmux session then?21:41
sareki see Bashing-om21:41
k1l_knobo: iirc its a screensession and should be listed in "screen -ls"21:42
knoboI remember once I did the upgrade inside tmux. Then tmux it self was upgraded, and I could no longer connect to the tmux server.21:43
knoboso I used /proc/PID/exe to connect.21:44
Bashing-omsarek: Might start my making sure of your mountpoints and permissions in the config file /etc/fstab, and that any and all  UUIDs agree with ' sudo blkid' .21:44

ubottuTo see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)21:51
Bashing-omsarek: ^^ I would go with UUIDs rather than "/dev/sdb2" that identifier is subject to change . Then the system has no valid reference . Then I can see why the fault reports .21:53
sarekok thanks Bashing-om21:53
Bashing-omDid the problems begin with this mount ? or when activating the file sharing ?? That then would indicate where the problem lies .21:54
deadmundSo Firefox was released today, but becuase of the Ubuntu package management system it seems that I have to wait a couple extra days to get the newest version.  Can anybody help me figure out how long exactly I'll have to wait?21:56

truexfan81ok on 64bit ubuntu what do i type to get 32bit libstdc++ ? i have a program that specifically needs the 32bit package23:26
arooniYankDownUnder: gotcha ; i will investigate23:27
tgm4883truexfan81: you'd install the 'libstdc++:i386' package23:27
Abe_k I didn't remove update-manager, I just looked under "software-properties-gtk" Software & Updates > Updates > Notify me of new a new Ubuntu Version and checked "Never"... should have solved my problem23:27
truexfan81tgm4883: thanks23:27
GnomeKrisI'm getting sick of not having sound...I've force  reloaded alsa, made sure nothing is muted, added myself to the audio group and did it all again. Even --purged alsa and pavucontrol then reinstalled...nothing is getting sound. Someone Please come up with something that the first two pages of Google can't tell me.23:27
klystronhi can anyone tell me how to downlaod adobe flash player for chromium web browser on ubuntu 15.10 or 16.0423:28
truexfan81also is there a channel for ubuntu on windows? or would those questions be asked here?23:28
tgm4883truexfan81: #ubuntu-on-windows23:28
hwktruexfan81: hatred question :)23:29
ahmed751995truexfan81: you should enable i3 packages by :sudo dpkg --add-architecture i38623:29
tgm4883ahmed751995: that should't be necessary23:29
hwkdoes the guest os has a linux kernel (heart) :P23:30
truexfan81i'll try the i386 package when it finishes installing tomcat723:30
truexfan81i'm just working my way through the list of deps needed to run Forsaken World server23:30
truexfan81i have it running on an ovh dedi, i'm now setting up a test server on my pc23:30
hwktry some virtualization solution  if possible23:31
xcyclistIs there a utility like yes that can yield random integers?23:31
truexfan81not enough ram23:31
GnomeKrisThis is just rediculous. I have never had an ubuntu install that had sound working off the first boot, but never has it been this complicated to fix.23:31
hwk..... why did you bought windows in the first place?23:32
hwkor get a trial of possible23:33
hwkto see if the os suits your needs23:33
tgm4883that seems off topic23:33
truexfan81for ubuntu for windows should i be worried about this error? initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused23:34
YankDownUndertruexfan81: You do realise that the linux subsystem in MS is NOT a full blown system, correct?23:34
truexfan81YankDownUnder: so long as it will run apache2, mariadb server and tomcat7 it will be fine23:35
hwkit sound offtopic, but it more like common sense guidelines --- wich ubuntu has a well example23:35
Steven_M How do I over come these dpkg --remove errors?: http://pastebin.com/raw/dAeYv0cg23:35
YankDownUndertruexfan81: Um...have you actually considered Virtualbox do accomplish that task properly...?23:36
truexfan81YankDownUnder: can't, pc only has 4GB ram, can only give 2GB to a vm and forsaken world server won't start with less than 3.1GB23:36
hwkim waiting for other os's to launch their live version23:36
hwk.... not going to happen23:36
Bashing-om!info brscan223:37
ubottuPackage brscan2 does not exist in xenial23:37
critikalHuawei mobile wifi modem not working , I need help23:37
YankDownUndertruexfan81: In considering all of the "what could go wrong?" bits - you're kinda creating a "chaos", don't ya reckon? Either which, I'm sure you'll dig and have patience enough to figure it all out if that is what you're truly desiring. Kinda a bit unrealistic from a Microsoft standpoint, really...but hey, that's your goal, not mine.23:38
Jordan_Utruexfan81: #ubuntu-on-windows for ubuwin support.23:39
=== max__ is now known as Guest93655
Guest93655anybody know a ubuntu webcam app?23:40
critikalGuest93655: try cheese23:41
GnomeKrisSo, does anyone know how to get sound working in ubuntu 16.04?23:41
SuperMechaCowHey guys. Does anyone know what would cause newly installed LXDE to not show in my DM?23:41
YankDownUnder(Kinda funny to think that after all the time and effort and money chucked into a distro, that they'd forget a webcam app...) :)23:42
SuperMechaCowGnomeKris, have you checked the additonal drivers?23:42
GnomeKrisYup, I'm using literally the only driver available on that screen.23:42
tgm4883YankDownUnder: how many people use a webcam app...23:43
SuperMechaCowGnomeKris, I used this: http://yktoo.com/en/software/indicator-sound-switcher23:43
SuperMechaCowdunno if that will help23:43
Steven_MBashing-om: dpkg !info brscan2 isn't a valid command.23:43
SuperMechaCownvm. i guess all of that is already in the system settings23:44
YankDownUndertgm4883: That I honestly couldn't tell you - however, for *me*, I've used webcams for more than 10yr on linux - in some version or another...ditto with my Macs...so, for me, it's like asking if you can use a keyboard and mouse with linux...nearly a redundant question - does that make sense?23:44
Jordan_Uxcyclist: echo $RANDOM23:44
SuperMechaCowBut seriously, does anybody have any ideas why lxde is not in my DM?23:44
Jordan_Uxcyclist: What is your end goal though?23:45
tgm4883YankDownUnder: not really. How often do you use a webcam to just take a picture or look at yourself vs using it to communicate with other people23:45
GnomeKrisYankDownUnder: there is already a sound indicator plugin included with ubuntu 16.04, and it works well. I believe my problem is deeper than that.23:45
GnomeKrisshoot. wrong person23:45
xcyclistThanks.  I needed a list of integers to test a sort algorithm.  Thank you.23:45
SuperMechaCowGnomeKris, yea I realized that after I said it23:45
tgm4883YankDownUnder: my point being, which webcam app should be included?23:46
YankDownUndertgm4883: I use it to communicate to my parents - 15k km away...not take pictures of my ancient grey skull... :) ...but that's me...23:46
tgm4883YankDownUnder: exactly23:46
YankDownUndertgm4883: I used to like Ekiga, but, well, Cheese is better...(linux side) - for the Mac, well, duh, Facetime...(have always avoided Skye like the plague)23:47
lordcirthJitsi is nice.23:48
lordcirthAnd Tox hopefully, when it's ready.23:48
tgm4883Oh cheese is installed by default anyway23:50
YankDownUndertgm4883: :) Shore iz!23:50
Bashing-omSteven_M: My though was to see if that package is from the repo .. appears not .. maybe 3rd party stuff ? ' apt-cache policy brscan2 ' give any hints where it came from ?23:56
YankDownUnderIsn't "brscan2" from the Brother drivers? (Third party drivers for Brother Printer/Scanner units)23:57
Bashing-omYankDownUnder: Steven_M Sounds likely so to me .23:58
senchaAnyone using Ubuntu on Windows 10?23:58
tgm4883!ubuwin | sencha23:59
ubottusencha: Canonical and Microsoft have announced that Windows 10 will be able to run Ubuntu programs without needing porting/recompilation. This functionality is still in beta and is not supported in #ubuntu. For discussion and support, see #ubuntu-on-windows.23:59
senchatgm4883: No support needed. :) Thanks though, I'll visit there.23:59
