samalexhi all.  quick question, my laptop is on ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS and I just ran apt-get update then apt-get upgrade.  if I run apt-get dist-upgrade then do-release-upgrade will this move me to ubuntu 16.04.1?  Just curious.03:19
samalexor should I install update-manager-core and force it to stick to LTS versions?  I want to stay with 16.04 since it's LTS.03:20
krytarik!upgradeofflts | samalex: Just do it the other way around, to "lts"03:25
ubottusamalex: Just do it the other way around, to "lts": To upgrade from an LTS release of Ubuntu to the next (non-LTS) release, run sudoedit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and change the prompt= line to "prompt=normal". Then, do sudo do-release-upgrade to begin the upgrade.03:25
samalexnot sure what you mean by other way around, run do-release-upgrade then dost-upgrade?03:27
samalexi just didn't want to goto 16.10 or have to mess with burning CD's or making ISO images on  a usb drive if i could upgrade easily enough through apt03:29
krytariksamalex: Well, to put it more plain: '/etc/update-manager/release-upgrades' → prompt=lts → do-release-upgrade.03:31
samalexahh makes since03:31

jac76I just let some patches apply to my system and after it was done my mouse had it's x and y axis swaped and x axis inverted.  It is an older logitech mouse.  Anybody else seeing anything like this?09:03
jac76I plugged in a regular non-wireless mouse and that one still worked ok, but my wireless Logitech mouse was messed up.09:06

swenray7Hello everyone, first I want to say i'm glad to join this community. It's sooo fun to really "work" on the computer. So here's my first problem , since i tried to download a chrome software to watch netflix i screwwed something up, and tried sudo apt-get install -f, and finally the OS tells me he is unable to open the lock file, and unable to locke the administration directory19:20
Picias long as you are sure there are no other package managers running... you can try this fix:19:21
ubottuIf an APT front-end crashed and your database is locked, try this in a !terminal: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »19:21
swenray7nope, he tells me libniss3:i386 version is different, one line later he tells me the same for libniss3:amd64... How can i be sure tht i haven't other package manager running ,19:27
swenray7Though i'm sure erased the to only softwares i downloaded from the download folder19:28
swenray7P.S : also tried !aptfix and did give me "event not found"19:30
