LARAVELGODc|oneman, try as root usermod -a - G sudo username00:00
LARAVELGODthe user may need to be in the sudo group00:00
c|onemannah thats already done. the user can install stuff in apt with sudo as normal in the command line00:01
LARAVELGODabandon the software centre then haha00:01
LARAVELGODi always found it semi-useless, especially if terminal works fine00:01
LARAVELGODi even have problems with it soemtimes, but never permissions issues00:01
LARAVELGODi know with the upgrade to 16,04, ther ewere some issues with the software centre00:02

c|onemanLARAVELGOD: if I gksudo /usr/bin/software-center it works00:12
LARAVELGODc|oneman i think it's more software related, since command centre uses sudo and apt anyway to do what it does, you'd be better off checking the logs to see if it's giving something more precise00:12
c|onemanlike the system logs?00:15
LARAVELGODyes c|oneman, open a terminal and try sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog00:16
LARAVELGODthen try use the software centre and see if it puts anything out00:16
LARAVELGODtail -f lets you watch the log in real time as it updates00:16

Mike2358hey guys first off I'd like to say that it"s been a while since ive done anything with Ubuntu. 10.04 to be exact. I was attempting to give my plex server rights so that it could read my external hard drive and now when i try to connect plex it tells me that it cannot connect to localhost. i'm currently running 16.04. anyone available to give me a hand?00:28
ubuntu447Anyone here?00:33
ubuntu447Hi anyone here?00:33
LARAVELGODyes we will solve all your problems00:33
effectnetheh i've had many problems solved00:34
Mike2358this is where i used to come when i was stumped00:34
LARAVELGODi am the solver of all problems00:34
effectnetall you can do is ask and hope someone knows00:34
ubuntu447Cool.  I basically accidentally formatted my whole PC and I go directly to the BIOS when I boot up, USB booting doesn't work, something wrong with my bios, and I'm trying to get Windows back, I don't have a copy00:34
Mike2358@LARAVELGOD then maybe you can help me out with my server issue00:35
LARAVELGODubuntu447, flash your bios and try again00:35
ubuntu447How do I do that00:35
LARAVELGODMike2358, what is the server issue ?00:35
LARAVELGOD!google how to flash bios00:35
ubottuI have no google command, use http://www.google.com/00:35
LARAVELGODdepends on your motherboard model00:36

dmilesLARAVELGOD: ok .. is there any apt-getable knerl this is in by default?00:37
dmilesok maybe it was rnamed http://askubuntu.com/questions/592412/why-is-there-no-proc-sys-kernel-softlockup-thresh00:37
LARAVELGODMike2358, sudo netstat -l | grep PORT00:37
LARAVELGODyou can use that to see if the service is running on the port00:38
Mike2358getnameinfo failed00:38

=== dan_ is now known as Guest36640

RexyI seem to keep running across a problem in my new Ubuntu install on my laptop. When I close and reopen my lid, sometimes LightDM comes up with a lock screen that only asks for a password. No user. Anyone ever encounter this issue?04:59
owen1is there a way to tell if gnome settings daemon is not running?04:59
RexyIt's weird as hell. Locking it with the lock command makes it happen. If I close the lid without even locking it doesn't lock.05:00
chestnutpiehi. can someone help me choose the right options here? https://i.imgur.com/J7JA7Zm.png05:00
Rexychestnutpie: Literally google how to do it. It's the easiest thing.05:01
chestnutpiei'm asking here now.05:02
Rexychestnutpie: Next to "ISO Image" click the disk button. It'll open up a file browser asking you for the input file. Find xubuntu and load it05:02
RexyNext it should be self explanatory05:02

chestnutpiemind helping me?05:03

RexyLoad your ISO, hit Start, and wait05:04
chestnutpiefat32 and 16 kilobytes is default.05:04
chestnutpieokay then.05:04
RexyI'm not sure if ntfs or fat32 matters. If there's any problems it'll notify you05:04

evilopmp4 is just a container, it can contain pretty much anything09:32
Geomso "encode" is the correct term for it rather than rip?09:33

BluesKajHowdy all11:13
evilopblackflow: a few years ago11:16
evilopblackflow: 2012 actually11:17
blackflowevilop: so you literally mean 8038611:17
blackflowmake sense.11:17
evilopso there is no reason to build for i386 anymore11:17
blackflowI hate that misnomer, i386 used to mean IA-3211:17
blackflowevilop: but still plenty of reason to build for IA-32, say i586 or i68611:18
evilopi586 should be the minimum, but realisticly i686 covers 99.9% of use cases11:18

blackflowyeah, the only place where 32-bit will make sense is embedded and arm11:19
evilopx32 makes 32bit builds much less attractive11:20

blackflowk1l_: uh, what? the ntfs partitions are at the beginning of drive, how do you expand sdc5 to take space of sdc1?11:23

blackflowk1l_: gimme an example command to do that11:25
evilopNicholas3214314: just delete the windows partitions, make a new one, mkfs it and then mount it to /home/<youruser>/stuff11:25
k1l_blackflow: gparted got a gui. its very easy to do with that.11:25
evilopeasiest way to do it11:25
evilopno gparted nor livecd needed11:26
blackflowk1l_: no it's not, you can't expand partitions at the END of the drive to take space from a partition from the BEGINNING of the drive11:26
k1l_blackflow: of course you can.11:26
evilopyou can move the partition but that is not a safe operation11:26
blackflowyou can't even do taht. you can copy data from sda6 to sda1, then delete sda2,5,6 and expand sda1 to take whole space11:27
blackflowyou _cannot_ expand sda6 to take space from sda1.11:27
evilopyou can move11:27
blackflowif you had LVM then it's easy to add sda1 as a pv11:28
blackflowbut there's no lvm here11:28
evilopanyway, easiest is just to fdisk/mkfs and then add the volume somewhere in your fs11:28
evilopit is safe and fast, and gives you seperation of user-data which is a good thing11:29

Nicholas595493I have gparted open, can I just unallocate the windows drives11:36
Nicholas595493sry dc11:36
blackflowk1l_: the only thing you did was moved partitions around. you cannot expand without moving11:37
evilopif you just want swap then just change the partition type and then mkswap it?11:37
k1l_blackflow: sorry. but your are confusing users in here and telling things dont work besides they clearly do work.11:37
blackflowk1l_: no, I'm just using proper terminology. because when you move partitions like that, suddenly sdc5 is no longer sdc5 which means more problems unless you know what you're doing, eg. using uuids for mounts etc..11:39

hateballGochaian: did you install virtualbox from repos or elsehwere?11:54

k1l_Nicholaslive: and why did you not increase swap instead of making a new one?12:04
Nicholaslivek1l_:  ill go back and do that12:04
hateballNicholaslive: if you delete a partition and create a new one rather than resize it will get a new UUID, so you have to update /etc/fstab to reflect this12:05
MacroManGochaian, This usually happens when your kernal is old. Did you perform a dist-upgrade before installing virtualbox?12:05
mandlaHello, is there a way to install Adobe Flash Player version 11.5.0 on 16.04.112:05

Nicholaslivek1l_: actually i cant increase sdc6 without first deleting swap12:09
Nicholaslivek1l_:  what should I do then...12:09
k1l_Nicholaslive: enlarge the extended partition first to use the whole disk. thenmove the swap to the beginning and increas it to your needs. then move sdc6 to use the rest12:11

MacroManGochaian, `sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean`12:13
Nicholaslivek1l_:  ah yes you can move it from there, okay ill increase swap now and then sdc6, thanks12:13
MacroManThis will remove uneeded packages that may cause problems and autoclean removes the .deb downloads that are no longer needed.12:14

wrksxI'm tryin to download an unbuntu iso image from the website, but am looking to install it on a core 2 duo, which is 64bits bot not from amd. But the 64 bits versions are labeled amd64 which does not really seem to fit my proc.12:32
Ben64amd64 is the 64bit version12:32
wrksxBen, alright, thanks for confirming. the amd in the name does not mean it is specifically targertting amd architectures?12:32
wrksxthat is so confusing12:33
Ben64amd64 "won" the 64bit platform, so it's called amd6412:33
Ben64same way 32bit says i386 or i686 or whatever, you don't need one of those to run it12:33

MacroManwrksx, It's most well known as x86-64, but is also known as x64, x86_64 and AMD64. Personally I think x64 is the least confusing, but that's not what most people use.12:55

wrksxMacroMan, Yeah I noticed there is some confusion on those things, I even seen x86 opposed to x64 in some sofware I believe. But first time I see this called amd64, or maybe first time I need to install on something else than an amd core12:56
wrksxSo maybe I just didn't thought about it like, it's amd, it's 64, just what I need YAY12:57
MacroManwrksx, And to make matters worse, x86 is 32 bit12:57

wrksxthat's what I meant, I've seen x86 for 32bits support and x64 for 64 bit support.12:58
k1l_wrksx: the 64bit patent is from amd. so its called amd64 on the linux kernel12:58
admin0k1l_: but does that error says anything ? apart from “you need to upgrade to the latest"12:58
k1l_admin0: honestly that doesnt matter. since no one will invest any effort in fixing it if its not happening in a supported jernel12:59

de-factohateball its an intel integrated gfx afaik, i thought if its a driver issue the older kernel (which was working before updates) should rule that "nomodeset" out13:42

Rarrikinst3chcr0w: On your hard drive or a removable drive?14:05
t3chcr0wIt is a seperate partition on the hard drive14:05
t3chcr0wI encrypted it through Ubuntu14:09
Rarrikinst3chcr0w: You can open a terminal (press Ctrl+Alt+T), type `mount | fgrep ext`, and press Enter. Each line tells you the `/dev` device followed by "on" followed by where it's mounted. Do you see it there?14:10
Rarrikinst3chcr0w: Usually, the device for encrypted drives will start with `/dev/mapper/`.14:10
t3chcr0wThis is what I received: mount | fgrep ext14:11

Rarrikinst3chcr0w: OK, now select the unencrypted bottom partition. Does it still say Unknown for the Contents?14:46
OerHeksGuest52365, you didn't look there, i gues,  The OpenPrinting database suggests that it does not have Linux support.14:47

Rarrikinst3chcr0w: If you didn't have any data on it, you can use Gnome Disks to reformat it as an encrypted partition.14:48

Rickster_So I had issues before with Installing the latest Ubuntu (16.04)... basically the live CD will load, shows the menu where you can "install / try or test media" etc... but when i select Install or try I get a black screen with a blinking cursor... I suspected that it could be graphics card related so i tried the nomemset and a bunch or other boot parameters (for nouveaux) but it all yieleded the same result...15:29
noobuntupoisonby I just checked and my system doesn't have any wpa_supplicant.conf so it cant be the problem15:29
Rickster_I tired the cd on another pc with similar specs and it worked fine... different graphics card.15:30
Rickster_But then i tried ubuntu 14... same thing ... then ubuntu 12 and that booted into live cd fine...15:30
poisonbyHuh, he left.15:30
Rickster_so i upgraded from 12 -> 14 -> 16... then i got the same problem when booting from grub :S then i reinstalled 12 then upgraded just to 14 and that works fine... What's the deal? Any thoughts?15:31

fivekeysOerHeks: it beame eno1 on mine, but something strange is happening15:39
aneesh_<bpt> is it a custom kernel? i think your problem is not with the OS????15:40
fivekeysOerHeks: on bash, ifdown autocompletes to eno1 (agreeing with ifconfig) but on execution it says 'unknown interface eno1'15:40
bptaneesh_: the problem is that the keyboard only works with the custom kernel, but that custom kernel is not loaded until after i typed in the cryptfs password.15:41
poisonby bpt That's problematic :P15:41
philspainOerheks, thanks but I read this already. I didnt have any customized config file, nevertheless I tried the 3 workarounds without success. I think now I already messed up everywhere and should use a new image :/15:41
poisonbybpt: Excuse my ignorance, but why not just boot the custom kernel directly from your boot loader?15:42
fivekeysI guess this renaming is a good thing? even though I've never seen anything different from eth0...15:42
akikfivekeys: you can go back to the previous method if you wish15:43
Elec_A_How can I see CDrom related commands? like eject.15:43
akikfivekeys: the interface names are strange for usb interfaces, they include the mac address15:43
Rickster_Many thanks for all your help :) Have a nice day, will get back to you with the results.15:44
bptpoisonby: maybe the way i formulated it was wrong. i installed ubuntu on encrypted lvm, everything works except the built-in keyboard. then i installed a custom kernel and the built-in keyboard works with it. the problem is how do i get the keyboard to work at the point during bootup when it asks for the lvm password?15:44
fivekeysakik: the naming itself doesn't bother me15:44
fivekeysakik: ifdown not getting his shit together does15:45
aneesh_<bpt> sorry dont get you....if you cant boot up the kernel...i.e. you cant move your mouse or type in the keyboard, its definitely is a different issue...if u can boot your machine, i belive there is nothing to worry about. You can expunge the faulty kernel and install custom kernel again...15:45
bptpoisonby: my assumption is that in this early stage of the boot process, a different kernel is running that doesn't know my custom kernel even exists15:45
akikfivekeys: are the interfaces defined in /etc/network/interfaces ?15:45
OerHeksbpt, seems to be a known issue, touch screen and encryption password. what guide dit you follow?15:45

poisonbybpt: You specify the custom kernel in your boot loader config.15:46
fivekeysakik: no, just lo15:47
akikfivekeys: ifdown reads the settings from there(?)15:47
fivekeysakik: likely, but eno1 is up and running... that's some inconsistency right there15:48
poisonbybpt: But yeah, maybe you're right, this is a bit out of my area. I'd ask in #linux or some channel dedicated to the actual kernel and ask there15:48
akikfivekeys: if you are using network-manager, don't use ifdown15:48
aneesh_hi help please...15:49
bptpoisonby: in grub i have "Advanced options for Ubuntu", there i can choose the custom kernel. when i do so it asks me for the passphrase for the lvm container, but the built-in keyboard is not working yet. after successfull boot it works though, so i'm not sure what exactly is running at the time when i'm asked to provide the password15:49
fivekeysakik: I wasn't, but probably will from now on. It still baffles me that ifdown won't find eno1 **but still autocompletes it as command line argument**.15:49
L72g5sSqI have a stupid question. I want something that will encrypt a folder that contains some random Python scripts. After entering a password to decrypt the folder, it will execute the Python code and load it in memory *then* encrypt the folder back again. Is this even possible?15:51
aneesh_<bpt> if you are using a old keyboard ?? BIOS dont recognize it???15:51
poisonbybpt: I meant edit the config file in /boot/15:51
bptOerHeks: just added the tigerite ppa to install the custom kernel. everything works smootly except that i'm using an encrypted lvm and my keyboard isn't recognized at that early stage in the boot process when i have to provide the lvm password. if i enter the password with a normal usb keyboard everything works fine including the built-in keyboard.15:51
aneesh_<bpt> may be basic things we have to check out first?15:51
bptpoisonby: i'm looking at it right now, just don't know what to look for as i'm not familiar with the boot sequence. where do i see what kernel is running prior to lvm decryption?15:54
bptpoisonby: or am i wrong if i assume that at the point of the password query a different kernel is running than the one that will be executed after decryption?15:55

b-yeeziPinkamena_D: Just create an R script that does trycatch(install.packages(pkg, pkg)17:27

fivekeyseven if it was 128GB it would be more than enough for me to put everything on it, so why not?17:27
energizerso maybe my question should be trijntje, what makes you prefer your approach?17:28
b-yeeziPinkamena_D: You can put them all in one script if you use trycatch() effectively17:29
energizerPinkamena_D: i wasnt in here for your original question, but you might take a look at the r package pacman17:29
inlimboenergizer, SSD is faster than a normal HDD, besides , `/` wouldnt need all of the 250gb.17:29
trijntjeenergizer: that was based on my own setup, where I also have windows (and my games) on the ssd. If you only have ubuntu, 250GB should be plenty for both your home and /, and you can put the really large files on the HDD as suggested by tgm17:30

OerHeksubunt18, witholut proper logs like var/log/dmesg and Auth and xauthority, what do you expect of this channe;?19:26
ksftthe software isn't what's free19:26

ubunt18teh software is also free19:26
ubunt18you're wrong19:26
ksftit doesn't cost money, but the people are the ones with freedom19:26
OerHeksubuntu18 you are just useless ranting19:26
ubunt18OerHeks: excuse me ?19:26
ubunt18well thats nice, if I 'speak my mind' its ranting ?19:27

OerHeksubuntulog, you don't want to provide info to work to a solution, fine, but don't blame ubuntu then.19:28

Obadiah1why do i have to go through the long tedious process of register my nick19:29
ubunt18OerHeks: what would providing logs prove ? its not just me having this problem someone else on this forum is too, plus the URL ioria gave me proves someone else has,,its not just me right ?19:29
PiciObadiah1: 1) its not long or tedious, 2) dumb people spam us.19:29
ubunt18OerHeks: IF I thought there was a 'reason' it does this on a OLD install thats one thing, but a brand new install,isn't that kinda nuts ? ;)19:29
ubunt18Obadiah1: security19:31
OerHeksubunt18, yes, that is why info is needed, i cannot give away a rondom solution like append systemd.unit=multi-user.target to the kernel line in grub/run once19:31
OerHeksjournalctl -b -1 provides info from the previous boot19:32
dreadkoppguys? anyone can help me? or can tell me what to do the use a bootloader which will boot both UEFI and legacy systems?19:33
ubunt18OerHeks: you misunderstood, I might be willing to , if it was a OLD install, this is new, i'm new sure I can be bothered19:33
ubunt18OerHeks: and thats not a rant, btw.19:33
ubunt18its pure frustration , over a brand new install, that should not do this ;)19:34
ubunt18I'll ask on ubuntu forums and see if I can get more information ,,ty all I guess :)19:34

ash_workzhey, sorry, friends took me to lunch; anyway, now I'll post that .desktop file19:36
ash_workztrism ^19:36
trismash_workz: alright19:36
ioriaash_workz, first of all, it is executable ?19:36
ash_workzioria: there's an Exec= line, if that's what you mean19:37
ioriaash_workz,  no chmod +x  file.desktop ... paste ls -l  file.desktop19:37
ash_workzI am just noticing though, an inconsistency in the file and what the dash executes19:37
trismioria: why would it be executable?19:37
ioriatrism, in unity it has... idr why19:38
trismioria: ls -l /usr/share/applications/19:38
ash_workzlet me give the run down19:38
ash_workzI didn't know what to do to resolve an icon in the dash that pointed to the wrong version of a program19:38
ioriatrism, not in there... on the desktop19:39
ash_workzso I went with the suggestion of using "main menu" (alacarte) which worked19:39
ioriaash_workz,  where is you . desktop ?19:39
dreadkoppEriC^^: i guess i need to grub install twice somehow then?19:39
ash_workzit actually presents you with fields similar to the lines in .desktop files19:39
EriC^^dreadkopp: yeah, install both the grub-pc and grub-efi packages19:40
ash_workzso I changed it using that and then all the icons broke, but at least they pointed to the right place19:40
ash_workzopening up this .desktop file shows the old path19:40
EriC^^dreadkopp: install grub-pc so it writes grub to the bios-boot partition, then it won't matter anymore i think, and install grub-efi19:40
dreadkoppEriC^^: thanks! then just install ubuntu to the stick, add packages i need and set it ro , righty?19:40
ash_workzwhich indicates to me that that file is not being used... at all19:40
ash_workzthat there is something else responsible for both the icon and the executable19:41
ash_workzI think I'll grep for the new path maybe19:41
EriC^^dreadkopp: not sure about the ro part..19:41
ioriaash_workz, usually i just add a .desktop ( with +x) in ~/.local/share/applications  ...19:41
EriC^^dreadkopp: i think so!19:41
ash_workzhmm... there isn't any file in the /usr/share/applications directory that has the new path as an Exec= line19:42
ash_workzso how can this broken icon link to the correct file?19:42
EriC^^dreadkopp: never tried to actually run ubuntu as ro, so no idea19:42
ash_workztrism: any ideas?19:43
EriC^^dreadkopp: are you talking about a grub parameter? how do you plan to achieve that?19:43
ash_workzshould I `sudo apt-get remove alacarte` ?19:43
* EriC^^ curious19:43
trismash_workz: that shouldn't change anything19:43
dreadkoppEriC^^: thanks a lot.. will give it a go in the next hours :) thought about fstab19:43
ash_workztrism: well, there's something clearly amiss here19:43
EriC^^dreadkopp: aha19:44
EriC^^dreadkopp: ok, no problem :)19:44
trismash_workz: do you maybe have multiple .desktops with the same Exec in ~/.local/share/applications/ ?19:44
ioriaash_workz, if all the whole .deesktop is correct try to append %u   to the  Exec line19:45
ash_workztrism: `grep -rns 'PhpStorm-162.1121.38'` (which is a component to the correct path) only has one result; the current icon path19:45
trismash_workz: an old thing with alacarte that often messed things up is it would add multiple Icon= (and maybe even Exec=) lines instead of replacing them, so it may still help to look at the actual file19:45
ash_workztrism: I am looking at the actual file19:45
ash_workztrism: I'm just saying, I initially set it with alacarte19:45
ash_workztrism: Idk... maybe it's not working as I expect19:46
namniDoes someone maybe using encrypted multiboot? I had a distro on an encrypted partition with separate boot. I backed up the boot partition, installed Ubuntu on an encrypted partition, also with separate boot, so the earlier boot got overwritten. It worked fine, but I used the backup to get the earlier boot partition back.19:46
ash_workzthis is what I'll do and come back... (1) set the icon file to use the same parent as the current Exec line; log out and in, see if that changed the target of the dash icon19:46
namniNow what should I do in order to be able to boot into Ubuntu as well?19:47
dreadkoppEriC^^: well what i am trying to do is a live linux environment which automatically connects to my vpn so i can access it. Used to rescue harddrives and reinstalling the OS (window... duh) via mounting the internal harddrive in a vm and install it there19:48
dreadkoppEriC^^: all i really need is the original ubuntu liveSystem + virtualbox + vpn clientside setup + a few rescuetools but i really don't know how to integrate that into the original image :/19:49

ubottudreadkopp: To have some persistent storage when using a Live CD, follow the instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDPersistence19:53

ash_workztrism: could alacarte have done some magic to functionally turn that into a link to the new file somehow?19:57
pegleggI changed the config from port 22 to 13 following a guide. restarted the service, and couldn't connect via 13, but still coudl on 2219:57
pegleggopened sshd_config and the new port was saved and still there19:57
trismash_workz: well alacarte should only really write the static file19:57
alkisgpeglegg: what's the output of this? grep -i port /etc/ssh/sshd_config19:58
trismash_workz: so it would seem you have another .desktop file somewhere overriding this one19:58

alkisgpeglegg: and, sudo service ssh restart, and then tail /var/log/syslog for errors20:00
ash_workztrism: now that I've changed jetbrains-phpstorm.desktop to only use `/opt/PhpStorm-143.382.38/bin/phpstorm.sh` (old version) a recursive grep turns up NO instances of the new version path20:01
ash_workztrism: I really don't get what's going on here20:01
trismash_workz: I'm not really sure either20:01
trismash_workz: there's not another .desktop file in /usr/local/share/applications or anything is there?20:02

Gio_DEI can provide screenshots of my directory structure and permissions should someone be able to help.20:31
colintsi guess ill just wipe the swap and get rid of it...20:31
jorritdreadkopp, nVidia drivers, since I'm a gamer20:31
blackflowGio_DE: chrooted SFTP, home dir is owned by root, you can't upload anything in the docroot20:31
jorritI had a terrible experience using Nouveau and I tend to avoid it after that.20:31
Gio_DEI'm aware of that. I have directories created inside the chrooted directory that are owned by the appropriate users for those sub directories.20:32
colintstgm4883, thanks for the help!20:32
dreadkopphmm... tried a differnet player and checked if same behavior occurs? @jorrit20:32
Gio_DEThe upload error is occurring inside these sub directories. I am using CyberDuck client to attempt the upload. I've also tried psftp CLI.20:33
Gio_DEAnd i get a permission denied error when trying to upload20:33
Gio_DEIt seems permission/owner related, i just don't know why, as they seem correct.20:33

ase_it's showing th integrated intel one20:36
ase_not the amd one20:36
alkisgsebaguro: run software-properties-gtk and do it from the gui20:36
jorritRarrikins, I've already tested all the recommended options. like enabling de-interlacing (yadif) and switching to software rendering. If I choose software, the playback slows down to a crawl. I had no problems running VLC on 14.04 on the exact same machine.20:36
sebaguroalkisg: thanks20:36
tgm4883ase_: laptop with hybrid graphics?20:36
ase_i have an amd driver and an intel one20:36
Gio_DEblackflow: that's correct. The permission on the root-owned chrooted directory is currently 755. The permissions of the sub-directories are 700.20:37
ase_but the amd one is not showing20:37
Gio_DEEach of the sub directories has a specified user for it, and chown is set up properly20:37
ase_R5 M330 tgm488320:38
jorritdreadkopp, SMPlayer runs smoothly, so it must be a VLC-specific option. the UI of SMPlayer looks like it escaped from Jurassic Park 1 though.20:38
blackflowGio_DE: if the dirs are owned by the user, then the only thing possible is a broken apparmor or selinux policy. otherwise what you're saying is impossible.20:39
Gio_DEOmfg, i bet it's selinux.20:39
Gio_DEHang on.20:39
blackflowGio_DE: if it were FTPS (FTP over SSL), then it's possible there are different user mappings involved, but with SSH, no.20:39
alkisgblackflow: note that the users do not exist at all in the chroot /etc/passwd... but I don't know enough about how sshd handles this, to propose a solution...20:40
dreadkoppjorrit: hmm... havent used vlc with linux for a while since i run linux only without X anymore.... there might be some hardware-rendering option though.. try tunring it of... unless you watch some fancy 4k porn there shouldnt be a problem :)20:40
Gio_DEIm pretty sure blackflow just nailed it for me with SELINUX20:40
Gio_DEAm checking now20:40
blackflowalkisg: yes but ssh wouldn't allow sshing into other user's home dir20:40
dreadkoppmight be some problem with vlc an some nvidia drivers (should be fixed then)20:41

Bomber4chats2I got myself black screened on boot20:51
Bomber4chats2It may have to do with xrandr20:51
Bomber4chats2I can't reach terminal 120:52
alkisgBomber4chats2: xrandr doesn't run at boot, what do you mean?20:52
Bomber4chats2alkisg  Well, I was working with a script that would change my screens resolution on the fly. Actually, the problem  started after I restarted....and I probably installed a few updates from apt...20:53
Bomber4chats2(before restarting)20:53

alkisgBomber4chats2: then your scripts probably won't run because the user has not logged in yet, and it was an issue with your apt updates... what happens if you select the recovery mode from grub?20:54
Bomber4chats2It is able to access Linux. The system reports that I'm in fail mode.20:55
w0jrlBomber4chats2: xrandr should automatically disable itself when you restart.20:55
alkisgBomber4chats2: what kind of changes did you do? apt keeps a history at /var/log/apt/20:57

Bomber4chats2So log/apt is mentioning that I've upgraded the following libs21:01

curlyearssometimes a minute or more) and then pops up a complaint about a "stalled" script, and asks if it should continue to run the script or perform a 'forced quit."  WHen I choose 'forced fit,'  sometimes, it kills the program.  Other times it goes back into catatonia, and I have to go through the process several times to get out of the program *of cour21:09
curlyearsse, I can "kill" the process if I switch to a term screen.  Whassup?21:09

elricsfateOne of the last comments mentions trackpads that have a dual sensing/clicking area and my trackpad fits into that category21:22
elricsfateIs there a working fix to mitigate this?21:22
Bomber4chats2The distribution-provided pre-install script failed! Are you sure you want to continue?21:23
OerHekselricsfate, looks like the side of your trackpad is scrolling capable. that confuses with your finger position i think.21:23

bumblefuzzalso, I don't even see vfat in gparted21:36
w0jrlbumblefuzz: I would use xfat.21:36

LordLaravelit mightbe another package you have to install NomadJim21:44

LordLaravelFair enough k1l_21:47
LordLaravelNomadJim, probably not. the size of ffmpeg would be the same21:48
LordLaravelthe codecs are probably in another folder21:48
LordLaravelare you talking about folder size ?21:48
LordLaraveldifferent versions and builds too can make different sized executables21:48
LordLaravelNomadJim, if I googles your error and find a solution I will be extremely upset21:49
NomadJimI'm trying all of them21:49
NomadJimThe thing that might account for the size difference is buliding ffmpeg with ./configure --enable-static --disable-shared21:50
NomadJimFrom https://forums.aws.amazon.com/message.jspa?messageID=58391021:50
LordLaravelok so it's not solely related to ffmpeg, it's a shared library, so external top ffmpeg and can be used by many applications other then ffmpeg if they wanted to21:50

sulfasalready to upgrade 15.10 -> 16.04. what do I use $sudo apt-get dist-upgrade or $sudo do-release-upgrade ?22:58
acovrigWhat command is there that will let me re-map keys, like xev, but I remember there being something else, any ideas what I'm thinking of?22:58
k1l_sulfasal: do-release-upgrade.23:00
k1l_sulfasal: ubuntu doesnt use apt to upgrade to a new release23:00
namelessacovrig: ^23:00
w0jrlsulfasal: If you are running Ubuntu Server or an accessibility service like Orca, run sudo do-release-upgrade.23:01
sulfasaleven if I'm not, according to kil_23:02
k1l_sulfasal: on the desktop you can use the update-manager which is a gui23:03
w0jrlsulfasal: If you are running a desktop version, sudo do-release-upgrade will work even if you're not running accessibility services.23:05
sulfasalkil_: how does update-manager supposed to work. I enter at prompt it just runs an update, that's all23:08
=== andrea is now known as Guest3355
sulfasaldo you mean Muon Update Manager?23:08
w0jrlsulfasal: Try update-manager -d.23:09
sulfasalcoz that's what I see when I enter 'update manager' in Software Center23:09
=== Starky is now known as Guest45719
k1l_sulfasal: you run kde?23:10
k1l_w0jrl: stop giving bad advice. the -d option is _only_ for developement releases. its not a workaround23:10
sulfasalw0jrl: same thing "software on this computer is up to date"23:10
k1l_sulfasal: and what is the output of "lsb_release -sd"23:11
sulfasalkil_: no the other one, forget what it's called23:11
k1l_sulfasal: there is more than 2 desktops :/ unity, gnome-shell, mate, xfce, lxde,...23:12
sulfasal15.10, Haven't upgraded yet; wanna get my ducks in a row first :)23:12
sulfasalDamn, I thought it was gnome. How do I check?23:13
sulfasalHeck with it. I'll do $sudo do-release-upgrade. Goin...going...23:14

DeaDSouLHi, is it possible to prevent feeding energy to the battery even the power-cort is plugged-in ?23:21
RarrikinsDeaDSouL: Yes. That's typically done by removing the battery.23:22
shr30I have a heroin addiction23:22
DeaDSouLRarrikins: smart :p ... I meant from software-side not physical23:22
k1lshr30: that is all offtopic in here. this channels focus is only technical ubuntu support23:23
Kev__I have verizon wireless access manager for the modem on a USB but ubuntu keeps getting an error trying to read the file23:23
RarrikinsDeaDSouL: There appears to be a solution for Thinkpads: https://askubuntu.com/questions/218148/stop-start-battery-charging-through-software23:23
shr30k1l: Of course, I am sorry for that23:23
k1lDeaDSouL: mostly no. that is handled by the bios and most times the OS can only get some statistics but not manage it.23:24
DeaDSouLRarrikins: thanks i'll look at it23:25

Jordan_U!ubuwin | Pikia23:46

KowDebian packaging question: Why is it not possible to create a source package without building it? Makes it impossible to use pbuilder-dist. THanks.23:53
OerHeksdoolboot, depends on the bios version i guess, UEFI ?23:53
doolbooti believe so23:53
Kow(Im not about to install 150 build depends on my desktop for a package that i want to build in pbuilder)23:53
doolboot0erHeks my mobo is a TA970, i will go look it up and see if it is UEFI23:54
jancoowHi there. Anyone an idea how to install owncloud ?23:54
doolboot0erHeks : it is a motherboard with UEFI bios.23:55
doolbooti have an extra, empty drive that i would like to install windows on23:55
doolbootis there any difference with UEFI or BIOS when I will do this?23:55
OerHeksdoolboot, yes, then i would install win10 without ubuntu present, and there is an UEFI manual to get things right afterwards23:56
Kownevermind got it with dpkg-buildpackage -S which makes the DSC which I can then feed into pbuilder-dist23:56
doolboot0erHeks so I should unplug all my ubuntu hard drives? and which manual are you talking about? is it on ubuntu website?23:57
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI23:58
doolbootoh ok thank you23:59
