YankDownUndermrtrousers: If you're running 16.04, well, the only thing I'd be able to tell you is that if the package that is in the repos doesn't work, you might want to wait a bit until it gets "upgraded" and then pushed down with the normal updates...unless you're desiring to "go outside of the system" and do it the old fashioned way...00:00
mrtrousersIve tried compiling and all. Is there a way to get all the dependencies while compiling? auto-apt is supposed to do that but it doesent.00:02
ovrflw0xon ubuntu all audio outputs are detected, but on Xubuntu i only see one output!! how to fix this?00:03
YankDownUndermrtrousers: From a logical standpoint, the "system" is not going to install "lower" versions of libraries...have you considered running a different version in a VM?00:07
mrtrouserswell the thing is its for computing gpu, cpu, etc.. dont know if in virtual machine woudl be as good. WOuld it?00:08
mrtrousersAnd the thins is: Boinc says it supports, ubuntu, ubuntu says it supports boinc, but things dont work..00:09
YankDownUndermrtrousers: Depends on the VM you create...however, that being said, I suppose the whole impetus to the situation you're in is exactly *how* important it is to run SETI/BOINC...and then make decisions based on that priority...00:09
mrtrousersWell of course, i could forget about it and go for a walk, but..00:10
lordcirthWell, thanks for reminding me to install Boinc on my new install.00:11
mrtrousersthe documentation says it should work so it shuld work. Im stubborn like that.00:12
YankDownUndermrtrousers: ...or run out and buy another monitor - OH WAIT, that's my plan, sorry... ;)00:12
sarekI use xset m 1 1 to adjust my mouse as a startup command, but it doesnt work on some startups, so i tried to do an @reboot /usr/bin/xset m 1 1 cronjob but that didnt work. Any ideas?00:12
mrtrousersRight now the option is to go back to windows, and i hate going back for things like this00:12
lordcirthmrtrousers, what was your problem exactly?  It just worked fine for me00:12
lordcirthIt freezes?  Mine seems fine so far00:13
mrtrousersDO you have ubuntu 16.04? Are you using boinc? lordcirth00:13
lordcirthmrtrousers, yes, I literally just installed it now when I saw you asking00:13
mrtrousersOk. DOes your gpu get recognized?00:13
lordcirthKubuntu 16.04, but I doubt that makes a difference00:13
lordcirthmrtrousers, I haven't tried a GPU project yet.  I will test00:13
mrtrousersOK. And close the boinc manager/gui, and open it again.. See what happens..00:14

lordcirthmrtrousers, closing to tray?  Works fine00:15
mrtrouserswhat you mean closing to tray?00:15
lordcirthmrtrousers, by default, when you click X, it stays running in the notification tray00:16
mrtrousersto the left panel? no i mean close the whole thing and restart the program lrodcirth00:16
lordcirthmrtrousers, ok I will try00:16
lordcirthmrtrousers, seems fine00:17
mrtrousersyou closed totally, and reopened?  It works fine? With all functionality? buttons, etc..?00:17
lordcirthmrtrousers, seems fine00:18
mrtrouserswell, not my case and got a new ubuntu 16.04 install00:18
lordcirthmrtrousers, what does stdout show?00:19
mrtrousersbuttons become whitish and cannto be pushed. and guis says retrieveing data forever00:20
mrtrousersit says command not found00:20
lordcirthmrtrousers, what command?00:21
mrtrouserslorcirth is stdout a termina command?00:21
lordcirthmrtrousers, standard output.  As in, if you launch Boinc Mgr from the command line, does it give an error when it freezes?00:22
mrtrousersno, i launch it from search your computer in the tray00:22
mrtrousersill install again00:23
mrtrouserssudo apt-get install boinc-client boinc-manager00:23
mrtrousersHow do you launch it lordcirth?00:23
mrtrousersboinc manager command not found00:24
lordcirthmrtrousers, boincmgr .  Use tab-complete, it's a wonderful thing00:24
mrtrousersok boincmgr lordcirth00:24
mrtrousersbuttons white, unable to connect to core client00:25
squintyfwiw, just installed it here with no problems00:25
mrtrousersand 512 gpu error, the ubuntu version just doesent work. At least for me00:26
mrtrouserssquinty you installed?00:27
squintymrtrousers, yes, seems to be no problem here00:28
mrtrousersdid you open boinc manager?00:28
mrtrousersAh ok, did you join a project? and start computing?00:29
squintymrtrousers, yes and joined a project00:29
mrtrousersok now close it00:29
mrtrousersthe whole gui i mean00:29
mrtrousersIf you want suspend the task before..00:29
squintymrtrousers,  completely closed it and then brought it up agaain.  "Retrieving current status"  tbh, never ran this rascal before so am not really sure how it is supposed to respond when it is first opened00:31
lordcirthmrtrousers, did you install the extra package 'boinc-client-nvidia-cuda' ?00:31
mrtrousersand thats the problem. Retrieving current status forever, and whiteish/frozen buttons00:32
mrtrouserslordcirth, yes00:32
mrtrousersIt will only work if you purge boinc-client boinc-manager00:33
mrtrousersThen you can reinstall, but will only work one time00:33
lordcirthmrtrousers, where do you see whether it's detected your GPU?00:35
leafybasilI added the iptable rule "iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3000 " which is similar to one I've run on other boxes, but it seems not to be working, any ideas why?00:35
mrtrousersi type boinc in teminal00:35
lordcirthmrtrousers, ah I see00:36
mrtrousersDo you get the gpu error?00:37
mrtrouserslorcirth, does it recognise the gpu or you get 512 error?00:38
lordcirthmrtrousers, 512, however, I am investigating whether running it as the correct user "boinc" makes a difference00:39
mrtrouserslordcirth, does it recognise the gpu or you get 512 error?00:39
mrtrousersah ok, thanks lordcirth00:39
mrtrousersYou see, there was something in there. Ive been like that for 24 hours lol.00:40
mrtrousersAsking boinc and ubuntu.00:40
dailyHi there, I'm on Ubuntu 14.04. Using PulseAudio, my mic produces a bad static noise regardless of input volume. This doesn't occur when bypassing pulseaudio using arecord. I've changed the default rate PulseAudio uses, to no avail. Any help is appreciated.00:40
mrtrouserslordcirth my workaround is install boinc from berkeley page http://boinc.berkeley.edu/00:42
mrtrousersBut then it lacks libwxgtk2.8 lordcirth00:43
mrtrouserssquinty did you find a workaround?00:43
lordcirthmrtrousers, hey, so boinc (started properly by the package) keeps a log in /var/log/boinc00:44
lordcirthmrtrousers, and in there, it says it detected my GPU00:44
squintymrtrousers,  first time I ran boinc from commandline got "dir_open: Could not open directory 'slots' from '/home/squinty"  made the directory "slots" and then started the gui again....controls seem responsive now.00:45
mrtrousersok, so if i mkdir slots, the gui will restart fine?00:45
squintymrtrousers, well it worked here so might want to give it a try00:46
mrtrousersHow did you start the gui squinty?00:48
squintymrtrousers, via the dash00:48
mrtrousersdash? you mean the search your computer? Was the gui responsive straight away or it took a long time?00:49
mrtrouserswas boinc working on the terminal when you opened boinc manager? squinty00:50
squintymrtrousers,  yes   popped up right away and connected to server(s)00:50
lordcirthI am launching from KDE menu and it's instant00:50
asad_whenever I connect my headphone to my laptop's jack, i hear very a loud buzzing sound00:51
asad_this started today00:51
asad_what could be the problem?00:51
squintymrtrousers,  in terminal when starting "GUI RPC bind to port 31416 failed: 98" and it exited.  starting from the gui seems to be no problems00:51
lordcirthasad_, did you do updates or change anything else in software?00:51
mrtrousersOk i  created slots dir, and now i launch boinc manager and still doesent work.00:51
squintyasad_, check to see what level your input mike is set at00:51
asad_lordcirth: No I didn't do anything. I even reinstalled Ubuntu. Same problem.00:51
lordcirthasad_, then 95% it's hardware.00:52
asad_lordcirth: you mean my headphones?00:52
lordcirthasad_, or laptop jack, or soundcard, or cable... if reinstalling the OS doesn't fix it, it's not software00:52
lordcirthasad_, well, did you do updates when reinstalling?  Could be a regression I suppose00:53
mrtrouserslorcirth what you mean from the kde menu?00:53
asad_lordcirth: how could something suddenly stop working though? it was perfectly fine00:53
mrtrouserssquinty you thing is creating the slots dir that solved it? Can you close and open again?00:54
lordcirthmrtrousers, I am running KDE.  I launched it from the K menu in the bottom left.  Functionally the same as Dash00:54
lordcirthasad_, because things break?  Unlike software, hardware wears out.00:54
asad_lordcirth: all my hardware is new.00:54
squintymrtrousers, here just adding the slots directory and then starting the gui manager, project commands started working00:55
asad_lordcirth: do you suggest trying an older version of ubuntu? maybe 14.04?00:55
asad_lordcirth: im on 16.04.00:55
mrtrouserssquinty you have 16.04?00:55
lordcirthasad_, it's worth a shot I suppose.  Don't bother installing it, just livecd00:55
squintymrtrousers,  yes and up to date00:55
mrtrouserssquinty slots directory was created in home/squinty/?00:55
squintymrtrousers, yes00:55
asad_lordcirth: ill give it a try. lets see what happens.00:56
mrtrousersthen why mine is not working?00:56
squintymrtrousers,  heh  no idea off hand. :-)00:56
squintymrtrousers,  might want to check /remove the contents from the hidden boinc directory ~/home/mrtrousers  for example and then restarting.00:57

squintymrtrousers, have you updated since installing?   sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade  if not01:12
mrtrouserslets try again01:13
lordcirthtranshuman, well, if you can ping it when the screen is black, then it's booted at least partially01:13
transhumanah I do that on the kernel command line how do I make it perminent with grub201:14
squintymrtrousers,  got to go and put dinner on  :-(  will be back if I get a chance01:14
mrtrouserswhat was it update and?01:14
transhumanoh I see, i didnt try that01:14
mrtrousersupgrade i guess01:14
lordcirthmrtrousers, full-upgrade , it's right there in scrollback01:15
mrtrousersA no, my irc got closed01:15
mrtrousersso i lost it01:15

kaiinteresting apt seems weird to type, I always put the apt-get lol01:18
lordcirthkai, yeah me too for like 2 weeks01:19
transhumanok lordcirth thanks for the help rebooting now to see if its fixed updated grub.cfg and ran update-grub01:19
transhumanI think thats all i have to do after putting nomodeset in cfg01:19
transhumancan you confirm01:19
lordcirthtranshuman, well, I meant do it temporarily on boot, but that works too01:19
transhumanI am hoping your right. skip a second reboot since nomodeset was on the running kernel but not on 4.401:20
iandawgHey guys, I'm trying to do a clean install of Ubuntu v16 on my laptop (wipe all internal drive contents and install only Ubuntu OS). I've followed the steps to use Rufus USB Installer, created the install media on my Lexar thumbdrive, ran the install using option "Erase all data and install..." But I can't boot from my internal HDD01:22
kaichecked bios settings? strange, took out usb? I'm kinda a noob so yeah I might only have a few ideas01:23
internutiandawg: So, you saw it got all the way through the install and then reboot?01:23
iandawgIt gave some message that I can continue in "try mode" but I would need to "restart now"01:23
iandawg(clicked restart now)01:23
internutI just installed 30 minutes ago and I never saw any "try mode". Sounds like it had a problem with your install and it suggested a recovery option.01:24
internutI don't think your install completed successfully.01:24
iandawgThe message said the install was successful (I paraphrase the dialog)01:25
iandawgI'm basically running Ubuntu, now, directly from the USB drive.01:25
lordcirthiandawg, internut, at the end of the install, it says you can continue to Try Ubuntu (live) or reboot to use the install.  It's normal01:25
internutoh okay... I didn't do the live mode, I just went straight into install from my USB bootloader01:26
iandawglordcirth : yes.01:26
lordcirthiandawg, and if you don't have the USB in there, nothing boots?01:26
iandawgThat's right01:26
iandawgmy laptop shows a message "no boot media found"01:26
lordcirthiandawg, did you run the USB's self-check?01:26
lordcirthBIOS or UEFI?01:26
iandawgfrom the initial ubuntu USB boot options?01:27
iandawgI've tried both - but UEFI01:27
lordcirthiandawg, yes, when the grub bootloader loads, there's an option to verify the image.  It's a good thing to do even if it's rarely the problem01:28
iandawgI did run that check. returned "no errors"01:28
lordcirthiandawg, ok excellent01:29
lordcirthiandawg, try the top answer here on your liveUSB: http://askubuntu.com/questions/158321/how-can-i-get-grub-to-appear-after-installing-ubuntu-with-windows-7-using-a-live01:31
internutOf course, Ubuntu created a huge swap partition on my NVMe drive. Gonna move that sucker to a slower drive.01:31
iandawglordcirth: even though I ONLY want Ubuntu (not Win7 side-by-side)?01:32
lordcirthiandawg, yes, it's a general solution01:33
lordcirthinternut, use manual partitioning if you have requirements like that :)  Auto is for single-drive standard installs.01:34

bassam_Hi. I make a change to my /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d file and now xfce won't start anymore. Can someone help?02:30
lordcirthbassam_, undo the change?02:30
bassam_lord4163_, the problem is is that I use crouton(for chromeboxes) and now I am unable to start xfce02:31
bassam_lord4163_, therefore I can't access the file02:31
lordcirthbassam_, wrong username autocomplete.  You can't get a command line?02:31
bassam_lordcirth, sorry. I'm at the command line in chromebox but I cannot edit 50-synaptics.conf file which is located in the directory i mentioned02:32
lordcirthbassam_, why not?02:33
bassam_lordcirth, well, when I try to get into the directory xorg.conf.d from the shell in chromebox, it says it doesn't exist02:33
bassam_lordcirth, i can get to X11 but the only directory there is xkb02:34
lordcirthbassam_, well, you probably have to start crouton or whatever to get into the Ubuntu install.  You're in ChromeOS.02:34
bassam_lordcirth, it gives me an error and ubuntu xfce doesn't start :/02:35
AciD`hey, I'm currently updating my 16.04 ubuntu computer, but somehow the upgrade freeze on grub-pc update just after the 'Found memtest86+ image : /boot/memtest86+.bin' line. Additionally, I can ls /boot, but cannot `df` without having that cmd freeze too. Is that bad doctor?02:35
AciD`also; I seeing a warning about the sector 32 being already used by a 'flexnet' program02:36
Jordan_Ubassam_: I'm guessing crouton uses a chroot, so you just need to find out where the Ubuntu root directory is stored.02:36
bassam_Jordan_U, yes i believe it does. Any idea how I would find out?02:37
Codenomicsok so horribly stupid question... I am creating a symlink, I want the files to actually be stored in dir called store so I would "ln -s original/dir /path/to/store" correct?02:37
Codenomicsor other way around?02:37
AciD`Codenomics > try it, it won't owerwrite anything02:38
Codenomicstry it?02:38
Jordan_UAciD`: df freezing is not a good sign. The warning about flexnet won't hurt you, it just means that you installed some software in Windows from a company that cares more about enforcing DRM than the well-being of its users (probably Adobe Photoshop).02:38
bassam_Jordan_U, oh i think I found it, let me see if i can make a change02:39
CodenomicsAciD`: I can try it... but I wanted to make sure that I had it right before I tried it02:39

phionaon 16.04, why does an insstall of inkscape also remove grub-customizer?  if i remove grub-customizer, will it now affect  grub?03:15

kurowaso. in 16.04, is there a way to uninstall everything and return ubuntu to the state where it is freshly installed?03:17
TheFlyHey ya'll.  I've a question. Instead of a bootable CD or USB, can I make an external HDD bootable?  Just burn the iso to the USB drive it's connected to, right?03:19
Jordan_Ukurowa: You can re-install preserving /home (which will preserve the settings of any programs run as your user) or re-install just preserving your documents / media (the latter you would have to do manually).03:20
TheFlyBasically, my files are stuck on a drive.  Testdisk can take them off but only the drive you boot up on.  500gb is too big for a USB drive.  But if I boot from an external HDD, I can copy right on to that03:20
Jordan_UTheFly: A hard drive is a hard drive for the purposes of booting. (Also, "burning" is a term that only applies to optical media like DVDs).03:21
kurowaJordan_U: if I saved document on another partition, do I need to backup? I want to return it to freshly installed state, removing all programs and config.03:22
TheFlyJordan_U:  Okay, very well.  Nonetheless, is what I'm hypothesizing correct?03:22
kurowaThe second one.03:22
TheFlykurowa talking to me?03:23
TheFlyno nm, you're not03:23
Jordan_Ukurowa: Yes and no. You don't "need" to backup, but no matter what you're doing you should always have backups of any important files.03:23
kurowaI'm dual booting, so I made partition for access to windows too.03:23
kurowaTheFly: Sorry.03:23
TheFlyHow did you message me and make your text red?03:24
Jordan_UTheFly: I don't understand the limitation you're talking about. Testdisk should have no problem recovering files from a drive it wasn't booted from; in fact it's probably the more common case.03:24
Jordan_UTheFly: By including your nick at the start of my message.03:24
JeffATLI am about to gift a freshly-installed ubuntu machine to a woman whose autistic son starts an online class on Monday. Does anyone know if a USB headset will plug in and Just Work (tm)? I don't have one to test with.03:25

ubottuTo make highlighting people more convenient:: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.03:25
TheFlyJordan_U when I press left key in in Testdisk to go all the way... I can't find the external drives attached to my PC03:25
TheFlyJordan_U I can only browse within the USB in which I booted into Ubuntu.03:26
Jordan_UJeffATL: I think it most likely will, but I don't have a lot of personal experience (I have used a USB headset with my Ubuntu machine, and I don't remember it being a hassle).03:27

Jordan_Uphiona: How did you install grub-customizer?03:28

Tobias92Hey guys, I have enabled the debsums cronjob on my server, so I get emails about files with a mismatched md5sum. Since upgrading to Xenial, I keep getting mails about a mismatch for '/usr/share/doc/module-init-tools/changelog.Debian.gz'; it seems like the last line is being changed to refer to 'libkmod2' rather than 'module-init-tools' (probably by unattended upgrades). Has anyone got a hint on how to debug this?09:20

stokbaekHey, hope anyone can help with this bind I have caught myself in12:53
ikoniastokbaek: no idea until you tell us the problem12:53
whoami_0001what's the problem ?12:53
stokbaekI did a kernel upgrade on my system and my media shares permissions is this now: d????????? ? ? ? ?12:53
ikoniastokbaek: seems very unlikely that is anything to do with the kernel12:54
ikoniastokbaek: what version of ubuntu12:54
stokbaekif I do chmod and chown with verbose on is it showing the right permissions12:54
stokbaekits 16.0412:54
ikoniastokbaek: what kernel did you install12:54
stokbaekwent back to 4.4.0-28-generic12:55
stokbaekthink it was 32 I installed12:55
ikoniaso all standard from the ubuntu repos12:55

ikoniawhoami_0001: what ??12:55
Coolerikonia, uh theres now 2 folders12:55
whoami_0001sudo permission ?12:55
ikoniastokbaek: are the shares, shares you mount from another machine, or shares that you share from your current machine12:55
Coolerin /usr/lib/jvm/12:56
ikoniawhoami_0001: sudo permissions ? what12:56
Coolerjava-1.9.0-openjdk-amd64 and java-9-openjdk-amd6412:56
stokbaekits a lvm raid6 on the saver that is doing smb share to other machines12:56
stokbaekserver *12:56
ikoniastokbaek: ok, so you're sharing them out, not mounting them remote12:56
Coolerwhich one do i set with export JAVA_HOME=12:56
ikoniastokbaek: what is the path to one of these shares12:56
ikoniaCooler: if you can't work out what JAVA_HOME for your IDE is, you won't be able to use the IDE, so I suggest you start reading the basics12:57
X-tonicikonia, I wanted a relative stable system for personal usage. However, in my previous attempts when I tried to install `/` in btrfs, it led to basic booting problems. I was wondering if those are now a thing of the past.12:57
ikoniaX-tonic: why do you want btrfs12:57
ikoniaX-tonic: you don't seem to be following it in terms of it's use/stability, so why do you even want it12:57
stokbaekwhat do you mean with path. The folder is physical on the server, others connect to it via smb12:58
ikoniastokbaek: ok, what is the path of one of the shares on the server file system12:58
stokbaekikonia, /var/media is where the share lies12:59
Coolerikonia, i was following the steps here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14788345/how-to-install-jdk-on-ubuntu-linux12:59
ikoniastokbaek: ok, so can you pastebin the output of "ls -la /var/media" please12:59
ikoniaCooler: so ?12:59
Coolerwhich version do i set?12:59
Coolerjava-1.9.0-openjdk-amd64 or java-9-openjdk-amd6412:59
Coolerboth folders are in /usr/lib/jvm12:59
ikoniaCooler: I told you, if you don't now what java_home to set - you won't be able to use the IDE, so start reading the basics of setting up eclipse and the basis of using java12:59
stokbaekikonia, http://pastebin.com/AuXPzN9H13:00
ikoniaCooler: if I have to tell you how and what to set java_home, you are not at a level where you can use the IDE13:00
X-tonicikonia, I followed some benchmarks which suggested btrfs to be better than ext4, and the future, and I see a lot of it's mention in kernel changelogs. That interests me to try it on my system.13:00
Cooleri thought the latest jdk was 813:00
Coolerbut linux apparently has jdk 913:00
ikoniaX-tonic: you won't see visual performance improvements as a home user13:00
ikoniaX-tonic: just use ext413:01
Coolerand i am not sure what 1.9.0 is13:01
ikoniaCooler: then don't use it13:01
ikoniastokbaek: ok, so can you do "sudo ls -la /var/media" please and put it in a pastebin13:01
Cooleralso is the jdk se only or does it include java ee apis?13:02
ikoniadepends on the package13:02
stokbaekikonia, http://pastebin.com/vkcFc5sf13:02
ikoniastokbaek: ok - so that looks fine, it looks like you're using access lists that are blocking non-root users from being able to se the permissions13:03
ikoniastokbaek: see the + sign "drwxr--r--+" on your /var/media dir, you've put an access list on it13:04
stokbaekikonia, hmm wierd, dont think I ever played around with acl13:04
ikoniastokbaek: someone has somewhere13:04
Coolerikonia, the tje openjdk 9 is the version that gave that error though13:04
stokbaekikonia, so I just have to remove the acl then?13:04
ikoniaCooler: ok ?13:04
Coolerwhen i tried to sudo apt-get install13:04
ikoniaCooler: yes, and I told you why13:05
Coolerso should i use 1.9.0 instead13:05
ikoniastokbaek: I'd first view the access list, see what's set, but yes, you'll probably end up removing it as you won't need it13:05
stokbaekikonia, hmm acl package isn't even installed on the system13:07
ikoniathere is an acl there13:07
stokbaekoh found it13:07
Coolerso should i use 1.9.0 instead?13:09
ikoniait's up to you13:10
Coolereclipse is giving that error after i set the JAVA_HOME and PATH to openjdk-9-jdk13:16
Coolerand also after i set it to 1.9.013:17

=== Guest57254 is now known as danes
Animurypervenche: yeah that was the case to look up all users (omitting that currently i'm the only one) and it in fact really doesn't need superuser, but that doesn't explain why on sudo it can't find my scripts ?14:42
ikoniaAnimu: show me EXACTLY how you call your script14:43
Animusudo sysinfo_page > sysinfo_page.html14:44
ikoniaAnimu: from what directory ?14:44
Animuikonia: Desktop currently, but without sudo it works fine14:44
ikoniaAnimu: what is the location of the script14:45
SchrodingersScatAnimu: thought we solved this, you have it in your ~/bin14:45
rypervencheSchrodingersScat: But he only has one user, so it's all good. And ~/.cache is 775 for me. The only files he would miss on other users would probably be ~/.ssh and the like. Not likely to change a lot in terms of used space.14:45
Animuikonia: location is /home/<username>/bin14:45
ikoniaAnimu: so apply some logic14:46
ikoniaAnimu: it's in your home directory - it's not in roots path14:46
ikoniasudo /home/<username>/bin/script_name14:46
SchrodingersScatrypervenche: on my system makes the difference of 64K without sudo, 376K with sudo, huuuge difference.14:46
akikrypervenche: you can't expect all user dirs to be open for everyone14:47
rypervencheSchrodingersScat: But you're still talking about more than one user. We are not.14:47
SchrodingersScatrypervenche: afaik this is homework, so probably better to fit to the question ;(14:47

OerHekseasy, ubuntu-bug <package>18:56
ubottuIf you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please report it using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.18:56
waddupglitchmob_but then again, what package?18:56
waddupglitchmob_I mean the issue is way to vague atm. right?18:57
OerHeksYeah, i was thinking out loud too, nvidia, kernel ..18:57
OerHeksnumix should be mentioned too18:57
waddupglitchmob_yeah I guess18:58
waddupglitchmob_if it could 'leak', lack for a better term, that would be a bug itself18:58
OerHeksBashing-om ??18:58
Bashing-omOerHeks: Well ,, that gets the big boys involved .. I have no better alternative .18:59
OerHekswell, ou tested it against 14.04 and guest account18:59
OerHeksi would go for nvidia19:00
__raveni want to connect to a bluetooth audio device (BCM2046B1) with ubuntu 16.04 but i am not able to make it work: "blueman.bluez.errors.DBusFailedError: Protocol not available..." http://pastebin.com/QXU1rV4a any ideas to solve that?19:00
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: I do have another outside thought .. as the boot parameter was needed in 14.04 ..is it still required in 16.04 ? Have you tried to boot 16.04 without it ?19:01
waddupglitchmob_Bashing-om: oh no it's the other way around.19:01
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: Surprising .. 16.04 is to be smarter than 14.04 .19:02
waddupglitchmob_Bashing-om: caught me by suprise too, I've had zero problems with 14.04 but 16.04 messed it up19:02
waddupglitchmob_I guess it's really hard to move forward without causing regression when it comes to handling hardware19:03
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: Your AMD board ,, greater tham A9 ? : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_IOMMU-supporting_hardware#Desktop_2 .19:06
waddupglitchmob_Bashing-om: OerHeks: getting really tired, shall I just report to nvidia then? How would I describe the issue, what should I mention? Also the command would be 'ubuntu-bug nvidia'?19:06
waddupglitchmob_Bashing-om: do you mean the motherboard?19:07
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: Yeah, the motherboard in particular .19:08
waddupglitchmob_Bashing-om: I have the 970A-UD3P19:09
waddupglitchmob_The version without the 'P' is in the list19:10
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: Yep. Pretty decent board there . Should have no problems .. but !19:13
waddupglitchmob_Bashing-om: you're leaving me in suspense now ;D19:16
ioriawaddupglitchmob, i'd try 3 things:  nouveau (to be sure the culprit is nvidia and not the new 16.04 xorg) , or disable  secure boot , or blacklist nouveau19:16
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest62618
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: ^^ we are not going to leave you .. Just that this is above my range and pay grade .19:18
waddupglitchmob_Bashing-om: hehe alright19:20
waddupglitchmob_ioria: blacklisting nouveau seems like a pretty drastic step19:20
ioriawaddupglitchmob,  well, you don't use it :þ19:21
ioriawaddupglitchmob,  never occurred to me your issue... if it were on console, i'd say that's a memory corruption ... do you have, by any chance, another kernel to boot ?19:22
waddupglitchmob_ioria: well I also have 14.04 installed, which is working fine19:23

bmintzit's been a  few hours and there's not many peeps on19:23
ioriawaddupglitchmob, on 16.04 you have only ?19:23
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: A quick way to check blacklist: ' sudo grep 'blacklist.*nouveau' /etc/modprobe.d/* ' .19:25
waddupglitchmob_nvidia-367_hybrid.conf:blacklist nouveau nvidia-367_hybrid.conf:blacklist lbm-nouveau nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf:blacklist nouveau nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf:blacklist lbm-nouveau19:27
ioriawaddupglitchmob, you installed 367 ?19:28
waddupglitchmob_ioria: yes19:29
waddupglitchmob_from the graphics-drivers ppa19:29
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: ioria ^ Do not see nouveau as a possible conflict here .19:29
Bashing-omioria: ^ the 367 install at my instigation . was 361 with problem .19:30
ioriaBashing-om, i see19:30
ioriaBashing-om,  well, it's the latest i think , suggested by the nvidia itself19:31
OerHeksblacklisting nouveau could do no harm, i guess19:31
iorialotuspsychje, lotusssssssssssssss19:32
lotuspsychjehey ioria :p19:32
iorialotuspsychje, well come back19:32
lotuspsychjeioria: ive been there in discuss a few19:33
iorialotuspsychje, i see ^_^19:33
waddupglitchmob_Getting really late here, need sleep. I want to thank each one of you: Bashing-om, OerHeks & ioria. Tomorrow I will try nouveau (if that fixes it report `ubuntu-bug nvidia`), try to blacklist nouveau.19:33
waddupglitchmob_I can't thank you all enough, especially Bashing-om with all your patience.19:34
Bashing-omwaddupglitchmob_: NP .. we do this because we want to .. add our bit to our community .19:34
ioriawaddupglitchmob,  ok, we'll wait for you you19:35

bmintzwat do?20:00
mikeklotuspyschje: I checked the output on both machines by the way. It looked pretty much the same.20:01
Bashing-ombmintz: I have seen some instances of ctl+alt+F1 ; alt+f7 brings it back .. maybe ?20:01
bmintztried that it didn't help20:02
bmintzthat's my goto normally20:02
guzzlefrybmintz: I'm trying to remember how I fixed that, other than disabling anything that would lock the screen...20:02
bmintzi just did drag and drop and that resolved it for some reason :o20:02
bmintzi swear my bugs are the worst sometimes20:02
bmintz*strangest, at least i can boot!20:03
lotuspsychjemikek: router or firewall interfere?20:03
guzzlefrybmintz: There's a worse one where if you unplug the mouse, or it goes to sleep (being a wireless mouse) when you enter sleep mode you won't be able to wake the computer back up. :P20:04

squisherhey folks, I just upgraded my nuc to xenial and now it hangs during boot time around when it's initializing lvm20:14
Bent0Somehow this little Shuttle PC im using doesnt output anything when booted.  1920x1080 screen tried both HDMI and VGA. I do have picture when booting (can see BIOS) but after Ubuntu starts the display turns off because theres no output.20:18
Bent0VGA works fine on another screen at 1440x900. Two other screens at 1920 no picture. It should be able to do 1920x1080 tho. Any ideas?20:18
squisherhm and that recovery option is pretty borked - I can log in, drop to a root shell, and seconds later systemd bombs the screen and returns me to a broken recovery menu20:21
mikeklotuspyschje: I just noticed something. I tried making each machine ping the other at the same time and it looks like they are taking turns.20:24
mikeklotuspyschje: It's random how many pings will occur but whenever one starts the other stops.20:25
toastymallowI installed Ubuntu I am running the suggested drivers for my GTX 970 yet I still get screen tearing when watching a movie or even when moving windows anyone have any ideas?20:27

ubuntu021hi, whats the best way on ubuntu to host your own website securly, is yunohost really any good20:43
ikoniaa basic webserver20:43
ikoniathats all you need20:43
ikonianothing else20:43
ubuntu021well a database as well20:43
ubuntu021my problem is keeping it secure20:44
k1l_ubuntu021: yunohost is no ubuntu20:44
ikoniaubuntu021: how is that a problem20:44
ubuntu021how do i secure ubuntu server base20:44
ikoniayou can't really ask that as a quetion20:45
ikoniaas it depends on a lot of things20:45
ikoniait's up to you to understand your system and minimise the risks it offers and have auditing in place for the risks20:45
k1l_ubuntu021: ubuntu ships updates to fix known security issues. but the config and to use strong passwords or key auth is the admins task.20:45
ubuntu021yes but it's just a home test server that i need to be public20:46
ikoniaubuntu021: how does that change anything ?20:46
bmintzhttps://caddyserver.com/ this simple server written in go with built-in Let's Encrypt TLS may be of help, although for database you may need some FastCGI wizardry20:47
bmintzit's very simple though so YMMV but if you only need something simple it's worth looking into20:48
ubuntu021would i be better off running containers for security (docker) as in db in one container and webserver in another and just send data across, i could also run pfsense as a firewall20:48
ikoniayou're making a problem20:48
ubuntu021how so20:49
ikoniawhat is wrong with a web server and database20:49
bmintzalthough pfsense wouldnt be a bad idea right?20:49
ikoniayou have 3 things to secure. core OS, web server, database20:49
ikoniaadding more to it opens up more options20:49
ikoniawhy ?]20:49
ikoniawhy do you need phsense on a webserve ?20:49
ikoniait's totally overkill20:49
k1l_if you cant secure your webserver and database, that is the main issue, imho. putting it into a sandbox like containers or stuff doesnt make the data more secure in the database etc.20:50
ubuntu021any good reading material on securing ubuntu server and hardening20:51
yeatsubuntu021: this looks pretty good: https://blog.mattbrock.co.uk/hardening-the-security-on-ubuntu-server-14-04/20:52
OerHeksthat depends per service, i guess20:53
yeats(found with the magic of google :-) )20:53

tuelzhow do I test to see if an nginx upstart supervisor is working?  I figured kill'ing with -9 flag of the master nginx process would trigger a nginx.conf to restart it, but no dice21:00
tuelzthe upstart nginx.conf is coming straight from nginx so I imagine it should work https://www.nginx.com/resources/wiki/start/topics/examples/ubuntuupstart/21:01
ikoniatrigger an nginx.conf ???21:01
tuelztrigger a conf?  I'm not sure what that means21:01
ikoniathen why are you saying it ?21:01
tuelzxD  I'm asking what you mean21:02
ikoniatuelz: you said it21:02
ikonianginx process would trigger a nginx.conf to restart it21:02
ikoniathats what you said21:02
tuelzoh, I see21:02
tuelzyeah, upstart supervises processes based on configuration, right?21:02
ikoniaupstart has a service definition21:03
tuelzI linked to the config I'm using and the expected behavior is that when I `kill -9 $NGINX_PROCESS` it should be restarted by upstart, but it isn't21:03
ikoniatuelz: what is the upstart config set to do for that service21:03
ikonianot all services are re-spawn21:03
tuelzikonia: I've linked to the exact config I'm using here `https://www.nginx.com/resources/wiki/start/topics/examples/ubuntuupstart/`21:04
tuelzit does respawn21:04
tuelzor at least it has that keyword and I expect it too21:04
ikoniatuelz: first question, what version of ubuntu is this21:04
ikoniatuelz: second question - the nginx package ships with an upstart config, why are you overwriting this with that template21:04
tuelzthis template comes straight from nginx.com - I imagine they are the same, no?21:05
ikoniatuelz: did you even look ?21:05
tuelzI'm deploying with someone elses install scripts, no idea how exactly they are removing the /etc/init/nginx.conf but it wasn't there21:05
ikoniaok - I'm not supporting your custom builds/installs21:06
tuelzokay, thanks for your time21:06
TekNiteComplete IRC nub. First time user. Downloaded to 14.04. Advice in the IRC universe?21:06
tuelznothing really custom about upstart though21:06
ikoniayou have no idea21:06
ikoniayou've just said you don't know how they are deploying21:06
ikoniawhich means you don't know what's happening, so I don't trust that you can say what's changed/custom and what's not21:07

tuelzI said I don't know how the config isn't there, much like there's millions of other things about every computer that I don't know about :)21:07
k1l_TekNite: advice for what? :)21:07

tuelzI want nginx supervised to restart when killed21:08
VinceVonhey all, is there a terminal that I can resize like a normal window, instead of setting the geometry in columns and rows?21:08

pkuykenis there any particular _technical_ advantage of one flavor of ubuntu over another, or are the flavors generally look and feel only (Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu/Ubuntu MATE in particular)21:39
lordcirthpkuyken, they are the same thing with a different desktop package.21:40

eva_I have a 6850 and I was using fglrx, everything just broke when i upgraded to 16.04, i hear they abandoned support for fglrx?21:49
AnastropheMy understanding is that the benefit of using one ubuntu flavour over just sticking a DE on top of the vanilla ubuntu release is that there's probably some specific packages for better integration or something.21:49
ikoniaeva_: ubuntu has not abandonded anyhing21:50
ikoniaAMD dropped the propritary modules21:51

Anastrophereisio: No, for example, I tried installing fedora the other night and after running updates to the newest kernel via dnf, it wouldn't even boot.21:56
AnastropheObviously, you can fix most things when they crop up, you just have to be ready for something to crop up.21:57

eva_ahhh ok, I understand... so I should rely on radeon drivers going forward then...22:06
k1l_eva_: yes. radeon is the standard now. and for new cards there is support from amd for amd_gpu22:07
eva_ahhh thanks22:11

sabatWhat's everyone's preferred means of filling in PDFs on linux? This is literally the only reason I have a windows partition atm.22:28
kajayachtI like Foxit Reader personally22:29
Anastrophesabat: What do you mean by 'filling'22:30
lordcirthAnastrophe, I assume he means pdfs with fillable form fields22:30
orlocksabat: there's a command line tool.. its not really user friendly, unless thats your sort of thing22:30
AnastropheAh, I didn't even know PDFs could be edited once made. Shows how often I deal with them.22:31
sabatI don't mind cli tools. what's it called.22:31
orlocksabat: lets you dump a list of the fields,  then choose what to fill them with22:31
sabatThey're a pain Anastrophe. I have one class that requires them weekly, and I'd rather not reboot every time I need to fill one in.22:31
AnastropheI'm googling right now to see why they're even still used. Seems they're better font quality and what not than other formats.22:32
dsabaninhey everyone!22:32
dsabanincan somebody help me find a way to make sure a window is tied to a particular workspace when it launches? (ideally I'd love to manage it's size and location also)22:33
sabatI can tell you why this lady uses them. Because she's an incompetent "professor" who teaches and outdated health class with information from the mid 80s. But it's a required class for graduation.22:33
Jordan_Usabat: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PDF_forms https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PDF_forms Note that while otherwise great, Inkscape doesn't support multiple page documents.22:33
lordcirthsabat, do you need only to print or to send them back as PDFs?  Those ^ linked just do printing by sticking the text on top.22:34
sabatorlock, what was the cli tool called?22:34
orlockAnastrophe: Lots of reasons PDF's are used22:34
Anastrophesabat: At least it's not an animal homeopathy course, those do exist.22:34
lordcirthThe one that claims to fill them is dead22:34
sabatI need to send them back. It's an online class.22:34
orlocksabat: Just googling, its been about 2 years - i was using it for a drupal website backend to automatically populate names on business cards22:35
sabatOkay, thanks.22:35
orlock https://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/22:35
Anastropheorlock: Yeah I'm reading into it now, surprised I'd never given it thought before.22:35
sabatThanks orlock! :)22:35
sabatIf anyone else thinks of something better, feel free to msg me. afk for a bit.22:36
orlockAnastrophe: i worked in IT in the printing industry for approaching 10 years, its pretty much the #1 standard there22:36
Anastropheorlock: Seems to be popular in legal proceedings too due to not being alterable without leaving a trace or so I'm reading at the moment.22:37
orlockAnastrophe: Even over a decade ago, Adobe had software under linux for creating PDF's22:37
transhumanhow from inside a gnome-terminal (ubuntu default terminal I believe ) do you set the title of the terminal gnome-terminal --title="SOME TITLE HERE"  does not seem to work22:37
orlockAnastrophe: That's debatable, but yes basically - you have much greater assurance about the layout and quality then you do with html22:37
transhumanbb in 522:38
Anastropheorlock: Is the PDF format proprietary?22:38
lordcirthAnastrophe, it's easy to alter a PDF in terms of security.  Only digital signatures can make any claim about being unaltered.22:38
orlockAnastrophe: Not any more, open standard since 200822:39

PixiioAnyone got an idea?22:40

orlockPixiio: your command to add the repository is wrong22:41
k1l_Pixiio: please make sure you read the ppa info: This PPA is going to be DEPRECATED, please use ppa:ondrej/php22:41
PixiioOh... this is the one I found on all of the website's. Would you please tell me the good one? :)22:41
k1l_https://launchpad.net/~ondrej/+archive/ubuntu/php5-5.6   read this22:41
PixiioThanks, will do!22:42
lordcirthPixiio, also, add-apt-repository is in software-properties-common package22:42
PixiioHmm. I see that it is deprecated.. But I still cannot find the good command..22:43
ikonia"the good command" ?22:43
Pixiio''Pixiio: your command to add the repository is wrong''22:43
PixiioOr is that error because it is deprecated?22:44
ikoniathe actual command is wrong22:44
PixiioWhat's wrong about it?22:44
lordcirthikonia, since when is add-apt-repository deprecated?22:44
ikoniayou need the tool installed to use it22:44
ikonialordcirth: it's not22:45
rawrzers99991is it possible to remove a program on your hard drive from a live cd? probably not I assume but I installed Xen and now it won't load to regular ubuntu22:45
lordcirthikonia, well then it's not a wrong command22:45
PixiioAh, got it.22:45
rawrzers99991I didn't backup grub beforehand :(22:47
JohnnyMonday  this is a beautiful rant.22:48
AnastropheIs the difference between a PPA and an ordinary repo simply that the PPA is managed by launchpad and gives a developer a more consolidated/canonical provided means of providing software?22:49

ubottuagustin: En la mayoría de los canales de Ubuntu, se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español entre al canal #ubuntu-es; escriba " /join #ubuntu-es " (sin comillas) y presione intro.22:49
k1l_Anastrophe: it mean litteraly everyone can make a PPA and provide software with that. so you need to trust that guys 100%.22:50
Anastrophek1l_: But is it essentially the same as a repo in any other distro?22:50
k1l_Anastrophe: no22:50
k1l_Anastrophe: well, you could compare it to a 3rd party repo. but not to the original ubuntu repos where there is a team of developers who need to get trusted before they get upload permissions.22:51
Anastrophek1l_: So it's like a third party repo system?22:53
k1l_yes. where everyone gets access.22:53
Anastrophek1l_: Ah okay, but can't you just add a random repo to your software sources file and then pull from there. Why a PPA?22:55
k1l_Anastrophe: yes. the PPA offerst some service to the maintainers like automated buildings etc.22:56
k1l_so for the enduser its nearly the same, but ubuntu got easy commands to add and rmeove those PPAs.22:57
AnastropheAhh I see. I've often found that a PPA will exist for easy installation of a piece of software, where another distro may not even have a package and you have to compile from source.22:59
k1l_Anastrophe: PPAs are ubuntu specific.22:59
tewardAnastrophe: there are multiple third party repositories, that are not PPAs, which can provide packages for other distributions (for example I run a Debian repository for the ZNC project that has packages for ZNC backported to Wheezy, and available for install, with a GPG key of my own available for the repo)23:02
tewardbut PPAs are Ubuntu specific, yes23:02
teward(as k1l_ stated)23:02
transhumananyone know why gnome-terminal  t="TERM-1" doesnt work neither does gnome-terminal --title="TERM 1" work>23:02
Anastropheteward: I've found Ubuntu with its PPAs has often made things quick and easy compared to when I've tried other distros :)23:03
transhumanalso tried gnome-terminal --show-menubar --title="TERM-1"23:04
reisioAnastrophe: sounds like your problem might stem from trying to use a multitude of distros/OSes at once, instead of just using one23:05
transhumandoesn't work23:05
reisiotranshuman: define work23:05
transhumanno change of title opens new terminal though23:05
dannysmc95_Hello I have a fairly big problem with ubuntu 16.04 fresh install? At the moment I load ubuntu and then get to.the login screen, login and then I get a blank screen... which I can't do anything with?23:05
Anastrophereisio: No problems, I'm just trying to understand the comparative differences.23:06
dannysmc95_Well I get the desktop background and that's it23:06
dannysmc95_I'm lost because I can't access tty eithet23:06
transhumanI am running a network of emulators so i need it to change title to keep track of them...ideally I would like to script this which is why I want to do it in the terminal23:06
reisioAnastrophe: between what & what?23:06
reisiotranshuman: think I'd probably use screen or tmux for that, and change the title via PS123:07
transhumanyou wouldnt have a link on how to do that would you...never used tmux or screen I assume PS1 means via export command but not sure23:08
Anastrophereisio: The concept of a PPA, and a software repo in general.23:08
dannysmc95_Anyone? Please?23:08
transhumanor a google term reisio23:08
AnastropheK1L gave me an explanation23:08
lordcirth!patience | dannysmc95_23:08
ubottudannysmc95_: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/23:08
lordcirthdannysmc95_, you can't switch to a tty with Ctrl-Alt-F2?23:09
dannysmc95_I already have done all of the googling, literally I can't find a fix you are my last resort...23:09
reisioAnastrophe: ppa is just Ubuntuland's way of referring to 3rd party packages23:09
dannysmc95_@lordcirth: nope just black screen23:09
reisioAnastrophe: a repo is just a place packages are stored, some are official, some are 3rd party23:09
lordcirthdannysmc95_, ok, and if you reboot, you should be able to get a tty before logging in23:10
dannysmc95_Nope when on the login screen I try to access it but blank screen still23:10
dannysmc95_@lordcirth: ^23:11
Anastrophereisio: Ah I see23:11
lordcirthdannysmc95_, did you try choosing fallback mode in grub?23:11
dannysmc95_@lordcirth: what is that sorry?23:11
dannysmc95_I dual boot with windows 1023:12
lordcirthdannysmc95_, your boot menu.  Below the option for Ubuntu there is usually a fallback option23:12
reisioAnastrophe: well, I guess I should've said the most popular way: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas23:12
reisioAnastrophe: you can obviously have a 3rd party .deb distributed in basically any fashion23:12
reisioAnastrophe: ppa would be, let's say, the official way to distribute unofficial packages23:12
dannysmc95_Erm I have: ubuntu, advanced options, Windows boot manager, system setup @lordcirth23:13
lordcirthdannysmc95_, advanced, probably23:13
dannysmc95_@lordcirth Okay I have normal, upstart, or recovery mode?23:14
lordcirthdannysmc95_, recovery23:14
=== negronjl is now known as negronjl_
dannysmc95_@lordcirth: I have so many options: resume, clean, dpkg, failsafeX, fsck, grub, network, root, system summary23:16
lordcirthdannysmc95_, seeing as you're having problems with graphics, try failsafeX23:16
dannysmc95_@lordcirth I get the system is running in low graphics mode? Something to do with not being able to detect my graphics settings?23:19
dannysmc95_Could this be why my gui isn't loading23:19
dannysmc95_@lordcirth I'm not sure how I should fix my problem?23:20
lordcirthdannysmc95_, read /var/log/syslog and /var/log/Xorg.0.log, they are usually good places to start for graphics23:21
dannysmc95_So log into console?23:21
lordcirthdannysmc95_, that would be required, yes23:23
