Orxata_when I try to install the propetary drivers of nvidia, it raises an error:01:02
Orxata_modinfo for module nvidia_340 failed: ERROR: modinfo: could not find module nvidia_34001:02
wafflejockOrxata_, are you just installing the drivers using the additional drivers app or doing it some other way?01:02
Orxata_additional drivers app01:02
Orxata_also, dpkg --get-selections | grep nvidia returns a list of several nvidia drivers01:03
wafflejockOrxata_, you could try to apt-get install --reinstall or purge then install those drivers not sure how you would end up with the packages installed but not the module though01:04
donofriopriporg, man fdisk01:04
photonAnyone know how I should troubleshoot?01:05
Orxata_wafflejock: how can I check which module is "loaded"?01:05
wafflejockOrxata_, lspci -vv01:05
wafflejockOrxata_, that'll list devices and includes kernel module loaded for various devices, or maybe lsmod but know the former command should show it01:05
Orxata_I see01:06
Orxata_Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidiafb01:06
wafflejockOrxata_, ah yeah noveau is the open source driver not sure about the second one really01:07
wafflejockOrxata_, have an nvidia card in my desktop but just wiped out Ubuntu from there for now01:07
Orxata_can I just "plug-in" the nvidia-current driver instead of those two?01:08
wafflejockOrxata_, maybe, someone else would have to guide you on that though I've only installed with the additional drivers, occasionally I've had to blacklist a module to stop it from loading if it conflicted with another module but wouldn't want to do that till you know the other module is loaded01:09
wafflejockOrxata_, in general modprobe and rmmod are the relevant commands I think but wouldn't know how to guide you directly on doing that01:09
Orxata_ok I'll do some research01:09
Orxata_thank you for that info01:09
wafflejockno prob good luck01:10

naccwas just noticing that in the pkg description :)01:17
naccmatteo_: but note even idle3 will depend on python3 from ubuntu (which again is 3.5.1)01:17

matteo_In fact I can't run IDLE having Python 3.2.201:18
=== Guest94130 is now known as xtr
kathy nacc:  Yes, several times01:18
naccmatteo_: why would you want 3.2.2, iiuc, 3.2 is eol (feb. 2016)01:18
naccmatteo_: and even then, you'd use 3.2.5, at least, i would think01:19
kathyI'm going to uninstall upstart and try that.  BRB01:19
matteo_My problem is that I have to use Python3.2.2 because the exam and the course I'm attending will be on that version..01:19

naccjoebobjoe: read `man acl` and `man chmod`01:21
joebobjoenacc: but... but... why would ACL have a duplicate group permission that is different01:21
naccmatteo_: i guess you'd need to d/l from https://www.python.org/download/releases/3.2.2/ and build from source01:21

nacccodepython777: configuring it correctly is non-trivial, i would say01:24
joebobjoeoh right01:24
naccmatteo_: it's ok, but it feels like your professor cannot have intended this. Also, teaching you a specific, unsupported version of python seems like a rather bad idea.01:24

photonUbuntu 16.04/16.10 not booting (http://askubuntu.com/q/868534/494761) Someone please help01:25
matteo_nacc So you mean that maybe I can use Python3.5 instead of Python3.2.2 and so solving problems? There would be differences in code between the two versions?01:26
naccmatteo_: i'm not saying htat, necessarily, as there are (typically new) language changes01:27

matteo_don't know..01:27
naccmatteo_: but in any case, this seems like a question for your profesorr01:27
naccmatteo_: and not really an ubuntu support question (where the answer here is: you cant' have python 3.2.2 on ubuntu 16.04). I guess you could search the PPAs i fyou want01:28
nacccodepython777: I have no idea what you mean -- there aren't prepackaged VMs of mailservers, that I know of. And I woulnd't trust them, probably01:28

kathyLance24: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/automatic-updates.html01:41
naccjoebobjoe: programs don't understand ACLs at all, necessarily01:41
naccjoebobjoe: this is all enforced by filesystems/VFS01:41
Lance24Thank you Kathy ! :)01:42
naccjoebobjoe: aiui, (see VALID ACLs), if ACL_USER or ACL_GROUP is present, it must have an ACL_MASK01:43
naccenergizer: well, venvs solve a different problem, aiui01:44
naccenergizer: venvs let you install multiple version of the same python lib (you can basically bundle all of your stuff together)01:44

kathyLet's see.... how do I figure that out.....?01:48
nacckathy: dpkg -S S02powernowd.early01:48
EriC^^!find S02powernowd.early01:48
ubottuPackage/file S02powernowd.early does not exist in yakkety01:48
naccEriC^^: yeah it's not packaged anymore01:48
nacckathy: so i'm *guessing* that you have packages that are only present in 14.04 still installed01:48
naccthe release upgrade, i believe, does not necessarily uninstall those01:48
EriC^^try dpkg -S `locate S02powernowd.early | head -1`01:49
kathyI'm grepping /var/lib/dpkg/info/*list01:49
ikonianacc: it should as there should be 'obsolete' tags against the 16.04 product that replaces that functionality01:49
ikonianacc: it doesn't always work though01:49
naccikonia: but not if they arent' replaced, aiui?01:49
naccikonia: meaning packages that no longer exist at all01:49
ikonianacc: I think thats the grey area, it's not drop in replacement but functionality replacement01:49
naccikonia: yeah :/01:50
ikonianacc: I'd guess those that slip through the net like that should be in some core package as obsolete to make sure they are gone01:50
ikonia(bad example I know)01:50
ikoniaeg: ubuntu-core obsoletes upstart for example01:50
kathySo should I just uninstall poernowd01:51
naccikonia: yeah, but it's odd that kathy's upgrade didn't remove upstart01:51
kathyIt's not installed...01:51
kathyInstalled: (none)01:51
nacckathy: 'powernowd'?01:51
ikonianacc: ooh, was it actually upstart01:52
kathyBTW, this is after do-release-upgrade from 14.04 to 16.0401:52
nacckathy: i'm not seeing any such package since (at least) 12.0401:52
ikoniaI was just using thats as a random example01:52
naccikonia: :)01:52
ikonianacc: I wonder if it's a PPA package that may depend on upstart that stops it being removed01:52
kathyYea, this machine started at 12.0401:52
nacckathy: no i mean it's not present in 12.04 either01:52
kathySo wonder how to get rid of this stuff...01:52
naccwhich makes me think, ppa, yeah01:52
nacckathy: can you use the dpkg command provided earlier rather than grepping?01:53
ikonianacc: so the 16.04 meta clean up process would work - however a different package is blocking it with a depend01:53
naccikonia: right, i could see that happening -- iirc, there's a way to search for packages by release, but i'm not sure (so then you'd be able to see what's still help from trusty archives and why)01:54
nacc*installed packages01:54
kathy`locate S02powernowd.early | head -1`  returns nothing01:54
ikonianacc: there must be something in apt-file (for example)01:54
ikoniaI can't think of a way to do it off the top of my head01:54
naccikonia: yeah, i can't either right now :)01:55
kathyHow do I search for possible previous ppa packages?  Or the possibility any were installed?01:57
ikonianacc: I've not followed this but could she not just try to remove upstart and see what complains01:57
naccikonia: already removed, yep01:58

Orxata_I did it02:29
EriC^^it's a fresh install of 16.04.102:30
naccEriC^^: upstart is still needed for the session managers, iirc02:32
kathy_Now, autoremove is removing a LOT of stuff.02:32

photonhttp://askubuntu.com/q/868534/494761 Could anyone help me with this please?02:34
EriC^^kathy_: just noticed you actually went through with the previous command of removing systemd02:35
kathy_Reinstalled it again too  ;)02:36
kathy_I might reboot and see what is left of this system....02:36
EriC^^kathy_: a ton of packages got removed though02:36
kathy_Will be interesting....02:36
kathy_and a ton more too..02:36
EriC^^kathy_: it's probably a good idea to reinstall the whole distro from a fresh iso02:36
kathy_Yea, that will more-than-likely be next.02:38
kathy_Check out the above link.  The result of autoremove02:38
kathy_I think I'll reboot and see what is left of this system.  I might be back tomorrow with an update, (if it is totally hosed ;)02:39

baharisorry just test my irc client from my box03:19
Speirosbahari No problem:)03:19
mars_If i'm getting this right. Win10 is in another hdd, ubuntu mate is in ssd. Right?03:20
mars_So in your bios setting, what is the boot order?03:21
aNameSo I'm trying to boot Kubuntu live on a 2009 iMac, as I do not have install media for OS X. I seem to have stalled somewhere in the process. It looks like X is up, but all I see is a mouse cursor.03:21
photon156I'm not sure what it is right now, but for testing right now I select the drive from the menu03:21
aNameAm I just expecting too much of this machine and should give it more time?03:21
aName(or perhaps the USB drive which is fairly modern but not especially nice)03:22
photon156Usually live cds/usbs take a little bi03:22
mars_You're using grub as the main bootloader right. Not the windows' one. If so select the drive on /boot/ partition. Usually installed on / ubuntu partition03:23
photon156Grub is on the root partition03:23
photon156If thats what you mean03:24
mars_Yes, that's what i mean03:24
aNamephoton156: I don't remember it taking this long back when I did it on similar machines back when they were new. BUt maybe that was rose colored glasses. I'll give it a few more minutes.03:25
aNameI was getting 50MBps writes to the USB though so it's not THAT slow03:25
aNameProbably faster than the disk in this thing lol03:25
photon156What about read03:25
SpeirosaName Mine took a while when I used the encrypted partition, if that's any help.03:25
aNameDunno, but I've yet to see a flash drive with slower reads than writes03:25
photon156True =P03:26
Bashing-omphoton156: Might be good to show the channel your partitioning so we know how you should be booting . pastebin ' sudo parted -l ' .03:26
photon156It usually takes quite a while for live cds to boot for me03:26
photon156K 1 sec03:26
aNameWell... the computer just blanked the display and went to sleep03:28
aNameSo... what now03:30
aNameIt's a 2009 iMac 7,1 if that helps03:31
aNameI suppose I could try a non-graphical installer, it wouldn't be the first time, but I'm worried I'm going to spend two hours downloading it, burning the image to another disk, booting... and the same thing happening lol03:31
aNameSo I'm hoping there's a workaround03:32
SpeirosaName is the sleep just a standard thing, where moving the mouse awakens it?03:32

Ben64tiox: just ask your question?03:54
photon156I have to go now, thanks for listening everyone03:54
tioxTrying to glop when I get errors that I do not get in a live session.03:54
tioxHow can I tell dpkg these files do not exist, or at least, should not be found when doing a glob for installatin or removal?03:55
mikeymopBen64: that worked, ty03:55
Ben64tiox: no idea, you're just sort of describing the problem instead of showing it to anyone here03:55
mikeymopBen64: do you know if this is a bash anomoly or how sudo is configured?03:56
Bashing-omtiox: Show us in a pastebin the out puts of terminal commands ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade ' .03:56
Ben64mikeymop: sudo doesn't go through redirection03:56
tioxWell, it's because I am doing stuff that isn't necessarily supported or advocated by Canonical; I'm trying to backport Compiz when I get weird errors like this with sudo apt --purge autoremove compiz*;03:56
tioxE: Unable to locate package compiz08new.profile03:56
tioxWhich is my profile for Compiz, or at least, one of them for 0.8, not a Debian file.03:56
mikeymopBen64: nice, so grep did 'block it' in a way03:56
mikeymopBen64: the pipe*03:57
tioxBut I do not get that error in a live session, predumably because something in my home folder is messed. Happens with a new install, too.03:57
Ben64mikeymop: it's a separate thing when you do |03:57
tioxWhere is dpkg finding these files when I glob / regex with apt / apt-get and how can I fix it?03:58
Ben64tiox: do you see it when you do 'ls compiz*'03:58
tioxThey are in my home folder, yeah.03:59
Ben64there you go03:59
tioxSO you're just saying move them out and problem solved hm?03:59

Ben64vw34: short answer - you don't. if you suspect you do, time to format04:04
Ben64tyriondwarf: chill out, watch the language, don't tell people to google it04:04
Speirosvw34  You can also add the command sudo ufw enable next time in terminal if you like.04:04

tyriondwarfgoogle, theres 100s of softwares04:05
mozammelFinetundra: AV only check virus which is for windows04:05
vw34what are the ways you can get a trojan?04:06
vw34is it through the browser always?04:06
Finetundramozammel: clamav was specifically for linux distros04:06
Ben64running things from random places04:06
vw34ben64 like facebook?04:07
Finetundramozammel: Keep in mind that I'm recalling it's existance from several years past which is why I included that bit about not knowing it's current status04:07
Ben64vw34: if you download and run something from facebook, sure04:07
Finetundramozammel: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clam_AntiVirus04:07
vw34i haven't dl anything. but i do look at websites from facebook. i wonder if they have hidden trojans04:08

Rochvellonno, it's only a painting04:09
mars_you could sandbox the browser vw34. look into firejail or the automated solution firectl04:10
tioxHTML5 can allow for some trojans to be ran behind your back, without user intervention, from any website through an ad. Not at all hyperbole.04:10

vw34ben64 what do i do? i am running the latest ubuntu04:12
mars_this is a support channel. it's not for the usual shiposting.04:12
tyriondwarfYeah because you guys have a very basic understanding of Linux04:12

tioxGo back to #arch please.04:12
mars_everyone start somewhere04:12
vw34i can erase and reinstall but i don't want to be in the same situation. if i am getting trojans through facebook maybe i should stop going there04:12

Speirosvw34 Welcome, and I hope you find it as enjoyable as I do.04:14
vw34spieros, i've been trying it to avoid windows. i do like ubuntu. but a little bit worried that i have trojans now04:14
Bashing-om!virus | vw3404:14
ubottuvw34: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux, except where files are then passed to Windows computers (perhaps using Samba). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus04:14
vw34yes i heard that i don't need antivirus04:15
Finetundramozammel: I sincerely doubt that seeing as they market it for multiple unix and unix like platforms as well as windows platforms. Even the shittiest of windows AV solutions can detect possible malicious signitures inside of something like a zip04:15
Speirosvw34 Yes, it seems that way.  That message from ubottu is spot-on.04:15
mars_vw34, see this. Could help beside using the clamav. https://github.com/rahiel/firectl04:15
vw34but i heard that it is still possible to get trojans in linux/ubuntu04:15
tioxThat is toxic advice. Not to like, stand on a soapbox or anything but viruses for Linux do exist.04:15
vw34i would like to know how04:15
tioxTo say you do not need an antivirus is how users of Transmission ended up with KeRanger, because they said the same thing and got phucked.04:16
Speirosvw34 By default, I'm under the impression that doing a "sudo ufw enable" on terminal will close unused ports.  Is this correct, those with more knowledge than I?04:16
Finetundramozammel: I don't intend to continue this argument any further04:16
mozammelFinetundra: never mind, bottom line is linux is still very very secure, and general user dont need to care about virus.04:17
Speirosvw34 I have very limited knowledge.04:17
Ben64vw34: it's very unlikely that you'd get a trojan from browsing the web on windows, much less likely on linux, don't worry about that04:18
Ben64vw34: basically, don't run things from the internet from untrusted sources04:18
mars_yeah and to add to that, don't just sudo everything04:18
SpeirosThere's a good list for security on ubuntu vw34, but I need to search for it...04:19
vw34ben64, you can call me paranoid but how do i know this for sure? is there a way to check for trojans in ubuntu?04:20
Speirosvw34 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BasicSecurity04:20
mars_and vw34, we don't call it trojans these days. worms, virus, trojans are called botnet now. it's 201604:21
Speirosmars_ And how quickly it flies...04:22
tioxOne more point about people and computers; Not all of them are super-smart. Things that are obvious to us are greek to the lot of masses we want to move away from Windows, and being toxic toward others just because they have a concern or issue you can solve in ten seconds helps nobody.04:31
tioxBut seriously stop saying you can't get a virus on Linux because you can. If people can get viruses on Apple computers then Linux is a stone's throw away.04:31
linuxhelpmeHey! My headphones give no sound when plugged in. Just started happening. Lubuntu 16.10 with Cinnamon running, Dell XPS 13 9350. Headphones do work on other machines. The laptop speakers work, but sound just mutes when plugged in. Neither device nor application settings are on mute. Test left and right from sound settings, no sound. apt-get update and upgrade, reboot, no luck.04:32
Speirostiox Most things are greek to me...and I'm not even Greek.04:32
linuxhelpmeAlso, the application I use doesn't change anything04:33
mozammeltiox: nobody says that linux cant get virus, but its very rare compaired to windows. that the whole point.04:33
tioxlinuxhelpme: Does the computer bill itself as having Beats by Dre built in?04:33
linuxhelpmetiox.... no it does not04:33
tioxNot sure if this is the safest advice, but do "pulseaudio -k && rm -rf ~/.pulse* ~/.config/pulse && pulseaudio &" to delete all pulse files, then if it works, do "exit"04:35
tioxOr you can drop the last ampersand and use run application instead; "sh -c 'pulseaudio -k && rm -rf ~/.pulse* ~/.config/pulse && pulseaudio'"04:35
metaresolveIm in putty on a VPS and did a grep postgresql because i wanted to find the right folder. i think it was a bad idea. now it's just sitting there, i guess searching? how do I kill it?04:35
mars_I agree with tiox. Apple is build on darwin which is based on bsd. They're all unix. Right now I could tolerate virus of some sort, but not ransomeware. I hate making backups.04:36
tioxIf that doesn't restore headphone functionality it will at least give pulse a fresh start.04:36
metaresolvenm, ^c worked04:37
linuxhelpmetiox, this will reset pulse configuration? doesn't sound too dangerous04:37
Speirostiox I have a similar problem but don't get sound at all when I install 16.4, so I reverted after finding no answers.04:37
linuxhelpmewhat am i risking tiox?04:37
tioxNothing. I've ealt with pulse issues before.04:38
tioxMainly because I muck about with jack. :P04:38
linuxhelpmetiox, i've been uninstalling pulse, installing pulse, on and on for years :/ I will give it a go04:38
=== JanC_ is now known as JanC
linuxhelpmetiox, output from said command is [1] 4839... no effect on my problem04:41
linuxhelpmeyeah i dunno what that mean]04:41
linuxhelpmea port number maybe?04:41
tioxThe pulseaudio -k command kills tthe process, so most likely it's Pulseaudio's PID.04:42
tioxNow look in your sound preferences and see if you can get your headphones to chooch.04:43
linuxhelpmei did, no dice04:43
tioxDamn. Not sure what else I can advise you to do then.04:43
linuxhelpme...boot into windows to watch muh show i guess04:43
tioxYou could join #pulseaudio and see if you can get specialized help there.04:44
linuxhelpmenice, i will try there04:44
tioxI tried.04:44
tioxlinuxhelpme: I've come back from sound issues before so I assumed deleting the config files might work.04:45
tioxIf it's a hardware problem based on your computer's hardware, there's nothing I can do to help because I lack the specialized knowledge about this issue to provide anything more beneficial.04:45
tableswhat is the easiest way to create a linux live cd?04:46

tioxdarkblue: Sorry for assuming about your topic, but it just sounded like you were trying to fan some flames for lulz.05:11
studentwhat are you saying05:11
tioxHey there student05:11
tioxOh nothing.05:12
tioxWhat's your problem?05:12
tioxI want to know why ubuntu-help was dropped as a channel and blocked with +i05:12
studentso you all use ubuntu05:12
mars_yes, ubanto05:13
tioxMost of us do.05:13
tioxI am on Ubuntu MATE myself but that's an official derivative now so I see no problem being here unless you want to talk about MATE.05:13
studentso what is your age05:13
tioxAre you looking for roleplay or something? There are servers in the world tailored for that, or at least have a heavily-invested interest by the community therein.05:14
tioxCommunities therein, rather.05:15

borisetoHi, I have a weird problem with the network indicator. After waking my laptop from sleep, the network indicator doesn't show anything, but my machine still connects to wifi and has Internet access. Is there a fix for it? Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity.05:20
Righteou5im running ubuntu server 14.0405:21
mars_boriseto, try sudo service network-manager restart05:21
xanguahttp://askubuntu.com/questions/761180/wifi-doesnt-work-after-suspend-after-16-04-upgrade boriseto05:21
xanguaWait that's not it, sorry05:22
xanguaWi-Fi disabled suspend Ubuntu 16.04http://askubuntu.com/questions/761180/wifi-doesnt-work-after-suspend-after-16-04-upgrade that is05:23
Righteou5do i need to have ubuntu user accounts to connect to a pptdp vpn?05:23
Righteou5i have only the one account i created in chap-secrets05:23
borisetomars_: that fixes it (but it disconnects me with the restarting). Is it a known problem?05:23
* Speiros is away: (probably off breaking something)05:24
* Speiros is back (gone 00:00:11)05:24
mars_could you connect to the wifi back using the same password boriseto?05:24
takanuvaI'm trying to make a BCM4313 wifi card work, no success so far... could anyone help me?05:24
borisetomars_: it connected by itself. xangua: so basically, add a script that would do the command on every wake from suspend?05:25
mars_There's a solution which xangua suggested. You could follow this step http://askubuntu.com/a/761220.05:27
mars_Just follow the step one by one and you'll be alright05:28

punksnotdead83I am relatively new to ubuntu and am having some really aggravating problems, can someone help me?06:33
=== me is now known as Guest19571
punksnotdead83is this a support channel or not?06:40
inteusIt's a support channel of volunteers. Ask your question and if someone can help, they'll answer.06:41
punksnotdead83I have many questions06:42
_Trulloturiya, seems like a good guide06:42
punksnotdead83Why can't I install anything on ubuntu? It is so inconsistent.06:43
srulipunksnotdead83: start with your most pressing issue, explaing it in as much details as possible06:44
srulipunksnotdead83: what are you trying to install?06:44
=== nos_ is now known as bitsmix
punksnotdead83My most pressing issue is, I am trying to install software on ubuntu 16.10, the same software I installed on 16.10 previously, however this time it will not install.. I am following the steps to the letter like usual.06:46
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: which software is this?06:46
icedwaterI see. (Just checking to see if the bot knew, too.)06:47
icedwaterWhich steps are you following, then?06:48
hypermisti turnt off all programs running ( that i started myself) and 827mb of ram is going no where06:48
hypermistand i just realized #ubuntu-server is probably where i need to be06:48
punksnotdead83adding the ppa ... updating ... install via apt-get06:48
punksnotdead83I do the same thing every time and it works, but this time it doesn't06:49
icedwaterSounds reasonable. Where did it trip up this time?06:49
punksnotdead83Unable to locate package pgld06:49
icedwaterSo it looks like maybe the PPA didn't add successfully?06:50
Turiyais fdisk depreciated?06:50
Turiyashould I be using something else? i have a 6x 6TB hdd array06:50
punksnotdead83I tried to add it via terminal, then manually.. it says it's there06:50
srulipunksnotdead83: is it a fresh install?06:50
icedwaterI think it wasn't designed for lv and friends, Turiya. But I haven't dealt with arrays much06:50
punksnotdead83fresh today yes06:51
sruligo to Software & Updates, see whats checked in "ubuntu software" and "other software" tabs06:52
punksnotdead83@sruli but that never normally makes a difference... quite the opposite06:52
srulipunksnotdead83: ^06:52
punksnotdead83everything that should be checked is checked06:53
punksnotdead83including the jre-pheonix ppa06:53
icedwaterI'm trying to add the jre-phoenix ppa now, it looks OK06:55
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: do your instructions look like these: https://sourceforge.net/p/peerguardian/wiki/pgl-Install-DebianUbuntu/06:57
punksnotdead83I keep getting unable to locate package.. etc06:57
punksnotdead83yes, that is the exact guide I always follow06:57
icedwaterHmm... clearly you have an Internet connection. The install seems to be OK on my end.06:58
punksnotdead83this is what is really bothering me... It works one time but not another... I REALLY don't want to go back to windows07:00
icedwaterI just installed and purged it. Yeah, I know. That's why I asked what the problem is. When do you see "unable to locate package"?07:00
HelpmelinuxplzHelp Ubuntu install is asking me something.. I am doing alongside windows 8 and it is asking to format a few partitions from scsl1 to I think eti07:01
punksnotdead83when I input sudo apt-get install pgld pglcmd pglgui07:01
HelpmelinuxplzAny ideas07:01
icedwaterDid you remember to update after adding the repository?07:01
icedwaterHelpmelinuxplz: SCSI to what now? I've never seen ETI.07:02
HelpmelinuxplzLet me go back to it07:02
HelpmelinuxplzI will type the message07:02
HerbalistHelpmelinuxplz.. backup your old system before you install07:02
HelpmelinuxplzErr hold on I'll connect to Firefox on the live USB. Brb07:02
HelpmeLinux2I'm in firefox now..07:04
HelpmeLinux2Let me get the message pulled up and put it in a pastebin07:04
HelpmeLinux2or the past ubuntu website :P07:04
HelpmeLinux2now who was the one that was helping me while i was on my phone?07:05
HelpmeLinux2Here is what the message is saying http://paste.ubuntu.com/23751051/07:05
HelpmeLinux2What is it asing??07:06
punksnotdead83I tried with aptitude and got "Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched"07:06
HelpmeLinux2Kindly awaiting your reply whoever was helping me on the phone :307:08
HelpmeLinux2wheni was connected here via my phone :P07:08
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: welcome back :p07:09
HelpmeLinux2thanks icedwater07:09
icedwaterIt's a standard install step, HelpmeLinux2. It means one of your hard disks, recognised as sda, will be wiped clean and separated into two partitions.07:10
HelpmeLinux2icedwater will i still have windows 8.1?07:10
icedwaterWell, no. It looks like only 7 and 8 will be created. Do you see anything about sda1-sda6?07:10
punksnotdead83so will i just have to go back to windows?07:11
HelpmeLinux2nope icedwater it was that message exactly in full.07:11
icedwaterYou're using a graphical installer, right?07:11
marcAnthonyhi guys need some help. I have ubuntu desktop that does not resolve names anymore, still I can ping IP adresses with no problem07:11
icedwatermarcAnthony: what do you see in /etc/resolv.conf?07:11
HelpmeLinux2icedwater will it effect windows 8.1 install?07:12
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: I asked if you were using the GUI installer, because if you were, you should have seen an option that asks you if you want to install alongside your current Windows, etc07:12
HelpmeLinux2also what would happen if say next year me and Ubuntu decides to go our seperate ways per say.. will removing it be as easy as deleting the partition and repairing windows 8.1?07:13
icedwaterThere should also be a list of other systems detected.07:13
marcAnthonyicedwater> I see nothing (only default comment)07:13
HelpmeLinux2icedwater would it be as easy as removing ubuntu partition if i decide to go back to windows only on this machine?07:13
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: what did you see in the screen before what you pasted?07:13
HelpmeLinux2I had the option of alongside windows.07:13
icedwaterYes, it should be just a matter of formatting the partition back into NTFS or FAT, or something Windows knows how to read.07:14
icedwatermarcAnthony: hmm so your /etc/resolv.conf is empty?07:14
HelpmeLinux2o_o wait07:14
icedwaterI mean, it contains just a comment07:14
HelpmeLinux2it'll format it to something that windows don't understand or will i be able to use windows 8.1 as fast as it is now07:14
HelpmeLinux2I'm a easy worried person..07:15
Ben64HelpmeLinux2: the best way to do it is fix windows boot first, then delete ubuntu partition07:15
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: good catch. Yes, by default ext4 partitions cannot be read in Windows. It will not affect your Windows install, though, if you choose to install it side-by-side.07:15
icedwaterBen64: that's assuming they want to revert. HelpmeLinux2 is asking about whether they should go ahead with http://paste.ubuntu.com/23751051/07:16
HelpmeLinux2mhmm @ Ben6407:16
marcAnthonyicedwater> yes, resolv.conf is empty (only comments inside) and  I have network manager configured as automatic07:16
Ben64punksnotdead83: anyone what07:16
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: I assume you selected "install alongside?" And I still don't know - you started the graphical installer, right?07:17
punksnotdead83anyone help? or have any ideas?07:17
icedwaterBen64: punksnotdead83 is trying to install pgld, it didn't work despite following the instructions on https://sourceforge.net/p/peerguardian/wiki/pgl-Install-DebianUbuntu/07:17
ducassepunksnotdead83: repeat your question07:17
marcAnthonyI suspected a firewall rule blocking DNS requests but even local requests do not work07:18
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: let me scroll back to your aptitude comment first...07:18
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: oops, you did say you were using the graphical installer. Sorry.07:18
marcAnthonyicedwater> I suspected a firewall rule blocking DNS requests but even local requests do not work07:19
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: what happens when you take a step back? Click the Previous or Back button, whatever it's called these days07:19
icedwatermarcAnthony: I saw your comment, thanks for highlighting me again. Erm, let me think.07:19
HelpmeLinux2it hides the popup and has me back at the screen with the options to install alongside windows or not07:19
ducassemarcAnthony: if resolv.conf is blank the system does not know which server to use for resolving07:20
Ben64marcAnthony: you don't even have in there?07:20
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: that's good, does it have a list of existing partitions? sda2, sda3, etc?07:20
icedwaterSome of them should be marked as being Windows partitions in that case.07:20
HelpmeLinux2I just clicked something else to see what shows it shows..07:21
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: it looks like you don't have the PPA installed correctly, then07:21
icedwaterMaybe try to add the repo again?07:21
=== anon is now known as Guest13533
HelpmeLinux2It shows /dev/sda, free space, /dev/sda1 ntfs, /dev/sda2 efi, /dev/sda3, /dev/sda4 ntfs, free space, /dev/sda5 ntfs, /dev/sda6 ntfs, free space07:22
punksnotdead83icedwater. I can assure you I do07:24
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: haha hi yeah07:24
HelpmeLinux2icedwater that's what the something else option shows07:24
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: that looks good, so I suppose your Windows partitions are /dev/sda4, /dev/sda5, /dev/sda607:25
HelpmeLinux2but my worry is what is the thing in the paste basically asking07:25
icedwaterIn any case, it looks like sda7 and sda8 are going to be created, with your Windows install intact07:25
icedwaterSo you should be fine with whatever options you selected before.07:25
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: I believe you too, but I'm not sure why else aptitude could be having issues with the repo07:26
HelpmeLinux2icedwater this will make windows run just the same and as fast as before?07:26
punksnotdead83I also removed it, tried to purge everything and redo the process, but still the same result07:26
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: it will run just the same, it shouldn't affect the speed of the Windows install, yes07:27
HelpmeLinux2ok :D07:27
HelpmeLinux2Thank you for the help.. Going to install it now or maybe tomorrow.07:27
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: maybe record the whole process using the script command, then paste that?07:27
* HelpmeLinux2 brohoofs icedwater07:27
icedwater(the output file from the script command, that is.)07:27
icedwaterHelpmeLinux2: heh you're welcome, all the best :)07:27
punksnotdead83forgive my newbishness, but how do I do that?07:27
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: I was also just reminded of its existence recently. :P In a terminal, which is where I assume you were entering the other commands, just run `script` first. Then the list of commands as usual.07:28
icedwaterHmm, wait, it doesn't seem to capture error messages, just stdout...07:29
icedwaterIn any case, end the script session with ^D or exit. It's a forked shell07:31
punksnotdead83nothing happened07:32
icedwaterWoah, trying to `cat` the typescript file inside tmux did a sort of exorcist thing07:32
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: so the idea is behind `script` is that it forks to another instance of bash (usually), then you do the thing you want to record in that shell. Once you're done recording, exit that shell, and the stuff that you did will be saved in a file called 'typescript'07:33
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: see, for instance, http://ix.io/1Pi007:35
punksnotdead83can't locate typescript ... nothing "forked" no other shell... it just done what it has been doing... ppa adds, update runs, cannot locate package etc...07:35
icedwaterMaybe then just manually copy/paste the output into gedit, or something, then pastebin that, please07:36
punksnotdead83the output from what?07:37
icedwaterThe output of the instructions you've been following.07:38
punksnotdead83sorry, I'm really confused...07:38
srulii converted ~55k tif files to jpg when i run a fing *.jpg | wc -l i get just under 44k, what tool can i use to find files in .tif which do not have same name in .jpg?07:38
icedwaterOK, once more from the top...07:39
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: you were following some instructions on sourceforge, right? To add the repository, update, and install pgld?07:39
punksnotdead83is this what you need? - http://pastebin.com/Qsg2Xc4y07:40
icedwaterIf you could record the whole process, with commands and output, we could look at what went wrong.07:40
icedwaterYeah, looks good, let me read it07:41
icedwaterAh, you chained them with &&07:41
punksnotdead83I done them seprately at first, just chained for convenience07:41
icedwaterSure, normally that would be fine, but if you notice there's an error in line 69 from another PPA07:42
icedwaterhttp://ppa.launchpad.net/mjblenner/ppa-hal/ubuntu yakkety/main amd64 Packages07:42
punksnotdead83yep, that is one of my other problems, been trying to get DRM vieod to run07:42
icedwaterSince that produced an error, the second step failed, so your last step trying to install pgld* wouldn't have run.07:43
icedwaterTry running the pgld step by itself, that should be OK. Then resolve the other thing later :P07:43
Ben64punksnotdead83: wow you have a really messed up repo list07:43
icedwaterBen64: I suppose that's just the way one or two of those PPAs was organised. I've never seen DEP-11 and Icons, Metadata, etc before. Or I haven't been looking close enough.07:44
Ben64that's because pgl isn't in that ppa for your version07:45
punksnotdead83so will I have to edit source.file ?07:45
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: that's a separate issue, but Ben64 is probably right. Yakkety would be 16.10, right? I'm still on Xenial.07:46
Ben64well you can't get pgl from that ppa, and you really ought to fix whatever you did with hal07:46
icedwaterI've stopped remembering codenames for some time now, it's been easier to use the numbers since I found out they corresponded to release dates07:46
punksnotdead83I would if I new how... I moved to ubuntu because people said it was the most user friendly.. but when you are used to windows it's a nightmare07:47
Ben64well you did some weird stuff07:47
icedwaterMoving is always a pain, once you're settled in it's OK. And yes, Ubuntu is probably the most user-friendly of the Linux distributions, though I'd have to evaluate more to properly back that up.07:47
punksnotdead83I just tried to get flash player working... followed a tutorial and it said I had to install HAL07:48
Ben64theres your problem07:48
punksnotdead83is it?07:48
punksnotdead83so how can I fix it... please07:48
punksnotdead83should i maybe just re-install from scratch and start again without trying to get flash working?07:49
Ben64what were you trying to get flash working on07:50
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: that's a very Windows approach :p07:50
punksnotdead83any browser preferably opera... It sem-works but can't play DRM content07:50
Ben64well maybe just remove the one line that has the problem07:51
icedwaterAs Ben64 mentioned, pgld simply isn't available on 16.10, as far as I can see07:51
punksnotdead83But I it installed fine previously on 16.1007:52
Ben64but good news, peer guardian is pointless07:52
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: so you have two issues, one is trying to install pgld, and the other is trying to get Flash on Opera.07:52
=== venkat_331 is now known as venkat_330
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: so you said at the beginning. I'm not sure how you did it, though.07:53
punksnotdead83for starters yes, there are other problems but those are the main ones07:53
punksnotdead83pgld maybe usless to you, but not to me07:53
Ben64it's useless for everyone07:53
icedwaterBen64: you'll probably need to back that up07:53
punksnotdead83that is just your opinion07:53
Ben64it literally is pointless, it's like covering an error light with a piece of duct tape07:53
icedwaterBen64: heh, OK. I don't use it, I wouldn't know.07:54

punksnotdead83thanks for trying icedwater and others08:04
jaurnicedwater, no08:05
icedwaterpunksnotdead83: that was a really odd fix, though.08:05
xXEoflaOEXxjaurn, I think that you must run fsck on the drive that has errors.08:05
punksnotdead83From what I've learned about ubuntu, there is always more than one way to do something..08:05
icedwaterIndeed, but I don't understand what went wrong with apt-add-blah08:06
jaurni tried running fsck bu i says that there was an unexpected inconsistency and that i should run fsck manually08:06
jaurni don't want to lose my data, please someone help me08:06
jaurnbut it*08:06
jaurnthe errors  are in /08:06
icedwaterjaurn: maybe if you have an install or live USB you could boot to that and run fsck without mounting your main partition?08:07
punksnotdead83nope, me neither.. like I said it usually works fine..08:07
jaurnicedwater, im right now on a live usb08:07
xXEoflaOEXxjaurn, you may try (if you have a live USB) fsck on the partition that has errors.08:07
jaurntry fsck on /?08:08
punksnotdead83so, to my next issue...08:08
punksnotdead83how to get DRM content to run on ubuntu (preferably opera)08:09
icedwaterjaurn: yes, whatever your / is. /dev/sda?08:09
jaurnmy distro is on /dev/sda1 but it's saying that the errors are in /08:09
xXEoflaOEXxjaurn, Try fsck on the hard drive that has errors, /dev/sda1.08:09
jaurnicedwater, should i simply run fsck /dev/sda1?08:09
icedwaterHmm... / to your live distro is something else altogether, isn't it.08:09
icedwaterYup, xXEoflaOEXx is right08:09
explodesHere's a dumb question, if I have 2x4GB DDR3 RAM at 1066MHz, would adding 2x8GB DDR3 RAM at 1866 be detrimental?08:12
icedwaterI suppose it would just give you 24GB of RAM at 1066MHz?08:14
punksnotdead83^ you might have manually change the timings08:15
linuxuserhi, im on unity 16.04. is there a way for 'search my computer' to show all installed apps? it doesn't show office libre icons..08:17
archer121_hi I have been trying to install ubuntu on a dell workstation, and I am stuck with this grub error: "error: file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found". I can see that there is a file called "/boot/grub/x86_64-efi/normal.mod". So how should I set the prefix correctly so that it detects the x86_64 normal.mod? Or is ther some other way around this?08:26

k1l_!webmin | tzmfen10:30
ubottutzmfen: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.10:30
pjm6good morning10:30
pjm6i'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and I can't find the file 70-persistent-net-rules10:30
tzmfenubottu: aah10:31
tzmfenso webmin maybe the source of the memory leaks10:31
pjm6If i understood right, it doesn't exist anymore, so there's an alternative in order to change the interfaces names?10:31
k1l_tzmfen: and you might want to see the linuxatemyram.com explanation why your ram usage is way less than you think10:31
priporghi, i'm getting boot error: "ata1.0 failed to set xfermode...". I've tried two kernel boot options (irqpoll libdata.force=noncq) but still getting the error. any help appreciated.10:31

k1l_tzmfen: i would not trust webmin at all, as already showed by the bot that it was kicked of the repos.10:36

tzmfenis there similar web controllers than webmin?10:37
tzmfenfree that is10:37

creisilocaHello there, I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and suffering a bug quite often. While typing, sometimes, a key won't be released, ever, so it will keep being written forever in whatever input or app you focus on. Suspending will fix the problem. I've read some bug reports commenting this issue but they are old. Is it a known issue nowadays? Any idea what could be the cause? Thanks in advance11:01
bonesmozammel: I've done "apt-get install unity-tweak-tool" but now I don't know how to launch it. Does it have another name after installation?11:02
=== franck is now known as Guest41409
mozammelbones: just search from over view "tweak-tool"11:02
cfhowletthardware problem?  clean the cookie crumbs from the keyboard?11:02
mozammelor you can run it from terminal just type $ unity-tweak-tool11:03
bonesI did it in the terminal, and now unfortunately it shows me: http://cxg.de/_a70224.htm11:04
k1l_bones: what ubuntu is that exactly?11:06
mozammelbones: seems dependent packages not installed, do you have synaptic-package-manager ? if , then uninstall unity-tweak-tool and install it from synaptic-package-manager, it will autometically include all the necessary dependent package11:06
k1l_bones: and with what command exactly did you install it?11:06
bonesokay, thanks. I'll try.11:06
k1l_mozammel: bones no need for synaptic here11:07
k1l_mozammel: bones apt will inlcuded the dependencies too. but i guess there was some special command used or there is something more wrong with the system11:08
mozammelk1l_: may be. I have no idea, for me it just worked.11:08
bonesokay. Hm. I'll try to google the problem with com.canonical.notify-osd11:08
k1l_bones: can you answer my questions?11:09
bonesah sorry I didn't see it. I installed it with "sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool"11:09
k1l_ok, that should install all the dependencies like synaptic does.11:10
k1l_bones: what ubuntu is that exactly?11:10
bonesxubuntu 16.0411:10
k1l_bones: do you have unity installed on the xubuntu base?11:11
bonesI'm not sure, I don't think so11:11
k1l_bones: you are using unity?11:11
k1l_because xubuntu doesnt use unity.11:12
bonesthere is an application "ubuntu tweak" installed. but it seems to be another application.11:12
bonesno i don't use inity11:12
k1l_bones: so why do you want to install unity-tweak-tool then?11:12
cfhowlettubuntu-tweak != unity-tweak11:12
mozammelbones: what is your DE ? unity ? and ubuntu version ?11:13
bonesbecause I thought that only unity-tweak-tool is right for doing interactive corners11:13
k1l_bones: unity is the desktop used on ubuntu. if you run xubuntu you use xfce as desktop. unity-tweak-tool is the wrong program then11:13
l0llip0pbones: no in xubuntu :) Xubuntu uses xfce over unity11:13
boneshow do I look up the destribution?11:14
bonesok k1l_, thank you11:14
k1l_bones: the distribution is not important. the desktop in use is. xubuntu uses xfce.11:14
l0llip0pbones: you can create extra panels from menu and make then invisible11:14
cfhowlettbones, dpkg -l | grep xfce*11:15
k1l_bones: ok, so unity-tweak-tool is the wrong program11:16
bonesl0llip0p: sorry I don't get your advice11:16
bonesI want to make the lower right corner to minimize everything and to maximize again when I go with the mouse pointer there again11:17
bonesProbably it's easier to create a shortcut, isn't it?11:17
k1l_bones: you will have to a solution for xfce/xubuntu for that.11:17
l0llip0pbones: hmn.. .Well you can create extra panel for that one to right corner.11:18
cfhowlettbones, right click on the panel > Panel > Add New Items > Show Desktop11:18
cfhowlettif future, giving accurate information expedites accurate answers11:19
l0llip0pbones: but perhaps in #xfce channel is the right place since I don't remember how xfce works :)11:19
bonescfhowlett: thanks man! It works. This is the upper right corner and I have to click on it but I have to admit it's quite comfortable tough.11:23
cfhowlettbones so move it to the bottom panel.  same process11:23
bonescfhowlett: how do I move down?11:24
cfhowlettbones, make a bottom panel.  right click on the panel>>>11:25
bonesah, ok11:25
HulioHi guys11:28
bonescfhowlett: I use plank for symbols in the dock. Plank-docking-panel is usually minimized. If I create a bottom panel, plank is going to be shown during the whole time. I better leave the desktop-showing-symbol in the upper corner. It's pretty nice! Thank you =)11:29

gear4_so why is it doing that with update ?14:55
ikoniaBlaatkip: it's taking more than pip14:55
gear4_I'm guessing he's doing apt-get update && apt-get upgrade14:56
Blaatkipi did a update first14:56
Blaatkipthen tried install pip14:56
Blaatkipthat didnt work14:56
Blaatkipafter that i tried upgrade14:56

CryptoSiDI usually use the --purge :)16:56

joebobjoeIs there a way to mount ext4 without permissions? Or to set up ext4 to not use permissions? I want to use an external USB thumb drive that anyone can access17:31
joebobjoe...if that makes sense17:31
Zaicranshare it our nfs?17:31
akikjoebobjoe: if you set it to mode 777 anybody can read & write to it17:31
blacknred0hi - i just started having issues trying to connect to hotmail when using ubuntu...  i've tried everything and nothing works... any thoughts?17:32
akikjoebobjoe: but mode 777 usually is a bad idea17:32
k1l_joebobjoe: the mounting OS decides about the permissions. so your question doesnt make sense.17:32
blacknred0i've done all of this -> https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/PVHlQutFIrU17:32
joebobjoek1l_: so there is no "permission-less" file system?17:34
joebobjoeWhat about FAT?17:34
k1l_blacknred0: what is the issue exactly? what browser is in use? what error do you see?17:34
blacknred0k1l_: is trying to log in... it seems to redirect and nothing happens17:35
blacknred0it works on FF with no issues17:35
k1l_joebobjoe: most usb-pendrives use fat due to compatibility with windows boxes. and that is permissions less.17:35
Zaicranblacknred0: sound slike a chrome issue, not a Ubuntu issue then?17:36
k1l_blackso you have a chrome issue? not a ubuntu issue? did you try without addons and clean profile? do you have the latest chrome version?17:36
blacknred0Zaicran: may be :) ... is there a chrome IRC?17:36
blacknred0k1l_: ^17:36
akikif fat is mounted on linux, it'll get the user's permissions17:36
akiki.e. other users can't write to it17:37
joebobjoek1l_: any other permission less partition formats?17:37
k1l_joebobjoe: i dont see your issue, to be honest.17:37
sandhourjoebobjoe: you should check that the usb partition table is MBR and the fs is fat for compatibility with others operating systems17:37
Zaicranjoin #chrome17:38
k1l_sandhour: joebobjoe usb pendrives dont have partitions in most cases. they only have the FS on the bare metal17:38
sandhourjoebobjoe: on most system also exfat works (for larger drivers)17:38
guest-yk1e4kCan someone help me im stuck out of my home account17:39
k1l_joebobjoe: so what issue do you have? or is this just theoretical?17:39
Zaicranguest-yk1e4k: What do you mean stuck out of...can you describe your problem better?17:39
k1l_guest-yk1e4k: what happened?17:40
joebobjoek1l_: I just want to treat an external usb storage device as a file dump.. I don't want who owns what and other permissions to be stored on it17:40
EriC^^joebobjoe: use ntfs17:41
k1l_joebobjoe: yes. and as i explained: the permissions are not stored on the device. the mounting OS sets those permissions.17:41
akikjoebobjoe: 1) mount ext4 usb stick partition 2) chmod 777 /media/username/usbstick. this is not the best solution but one that works17:41
k1l_joebobjoe: so the standard for mixed OS usage is fat. since windows cant write on ext4 by default17:42
guest-yk1e4ki wanted to use my fingerprint scanner on my computer, i followed directions, it worked but only AFTER i input my password, so i looked online to fix it, i made one changes to my Common-Auth, which i saved on my DESKTOP, NOW, it says "user authrizaiton failed" and the "Retry" option is displayed but can't click on it.17:42
Jordan_Uguest-yk1e4k: Do you have an encrypted home directory?17:42
guest-yk1e4kJordan_U, yes17:42
Jordan_Uguest-yk1e4k: Then there is no way around needing to enter a password to log in.17:43
joebobjoek1l_: well that sucks.17:43
k1l_joebobjoe: i dont see you issue17:43
joebobjoeIt's just weird that a drive shared among multiple systems would store permissions17:44
joebobjoeYou may not have the same UID on another system17:44
guest-yk1e4kok fine, but i can't really fix my problem cause i can't get into my home directory from terminal unless there was a way to get into it?17:44
k1l_joebobjoe: those permissions are not important. since they get overwritten on mounting17:44
akikjoebobjoe: the mode 777 sticks to the usb storage device17:44
Jordan_Uguest-yk1e4k: A fingerprint isn't a secret, and thus can't be used to decrypt anything. You could technically include the secret needed to decrypt in plain text, but that's equivalent to just not encrypting at all (so don't try to do that).17:44
k1l_joebobjoe: that is not an issue with the uids.17:44
guest-yk1e4kJordan_U, i would very much like to get back to my home folder/.17:45
Jordan_Uguest-yk1e4k: That we can do :)17:45
k1l_joebobjoe: and fat doesnt have file permissions at all.17:45
Jordan_Uguest-yk1e4k: Are you using ecryptfs?17:45
joebobjoek1l_: what do you mean they get overriden? If I make a file on the usb drive, it will be owned by me17:45
guest-yk1e4kJordan_U, thats what i wanted.17:45
joebobjoek1l_: well I wanted to use something more advanced than FAT for flash storage17:46
k1l_joebobjoe: why more advanced?17:46
guest-yk1e4ki have a pen a paper ready or a great link would be helpful17:46
k1l_joebobjoe: and again: see mounting options17:46
joebobjoek1l_: mounting options specific to ext4?17:47
Jordan_Uguest-yk1e4k: Easiest way to access your data right now would be to boot from an Ubuntu LiveUSB and follow http://blog.dustinkirkland.com/2011/04/introducing-ecryptfs-recover-private.html .17:47

Jordan_Uguest-yk1e4k: I won't have time to walk you through actually getting your user able to log in normally before I need to leave, but ecryptfs-recover-private should allow you to access your data.17:49
k1l_joebobjoe: look at this for  example: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount/USB#Using_mount     mount the drive17:49
guest-yk1e4kJordan_U, the issue there my dear sir, is i only have a guess account and i am not skilled in command line user addons17:49
guest-yk1e4kso man up on the ecrypts-recover-private help file then?17:50
k1l_joebobjoe: and for ext just chown the mounted dir.17:50

rubenwardyHi! I use a Windows 10 + Ubuntu 16.10 laptop, secure boot. I first installed Ubuntu 16.04 and it worked perfectly well, I could use Windows 10 too. I updated to 16.10 and had (wifi) driver problems so I tried installing 16.10 by using a disc and remaking the partition. I had to manually choose partitions in the editor, so I choose /dev/sda as the UEFI table partition and /dev/sda6 as the Ubuntu partition (as it was my old partiton). It17:59
rubenwardyinstalled well, and works well17:59

zqvtHi I've got a problem with several email clients. I can't send mail through alpine or thunderbird on Ubuntu and I assume it's because google requires you to login through a browser popup. has anybody encountered this?19:46
basedmarszqvt, have you upgraded the thunderbird packages?19:47
MonkeyDustzqvt  i use thunderbird without google login, so it's not general19:47

cobyrHello everyone. :) I've been attempting a full install of Ubuntu on a USB thumb drive (following this guide: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/11/install-real-ubuntu-os-usb-drive/) but have not yet succeeded. The guide says to use Unetbootin to burn the ubuntu ios to usb drive, but after I do it won't boot from the stick. It just hangs. Was using Ubuntu 16.04.1 .19:59
cobyrubuntu iso* NOT ios.19:59
cobyrWas curious if anyone here has had success running a full ubuntu install from a usb stick?20:00
akikcobyr: yes, it's possible20:00
CharlieBrowncobyr, yes.  Boot it up, click the install button.  Done! :D20:00
CharlieBrownI haven't used optical media since 2007.20:01
akikcobyr: i've heard rufus is able to make the usb stick20:01
cobyrCharlieBrown, do you use a particular iso burner? Unetbootin doesn't seem to wrk right for me.20:01
CharlieBrownYeah, akik.  Rufus is a GREAT app for Windows that writes ISOs.20:01
cobyrakik, oh ok thanks. I have not tried rufus20:01
cobyrthat sound perfect because I am mostly on windows 1020:02
BlaatkipI use a usbstick with 5 linux distro's and win 10 installer, made it with yumi20:02
CharlieBrowncobyr, it's one of my essential apps for Windows.  I used to have a collection of free software apps for Windows that I'd keep in my pocket at all times.20:02
squintycobyr, https://www.pendrivelinux.com/ for tutorials and alternatives20:03
CharlieBrownBlaatkip, Yumi?  Will look into it.20:03
minimeccobyr: Yes. I recommend some fast USB3 or USB-C stick. You will need two sticks, for the install obviously... One with the Ubuntu install disk and the target USB stick. Just use the target USB stick as installation harddrive.20:03
cobyrAwesome. A good iso burned is a great start. squinty thanks for that link because I still need to partition the usb stick correctly for a full install to work properly, right?20:04
CharlieBrownOhh... THAT's what they were trying to do. My bad.20:04
minimeccobyr: I also recommend to mount the /temo directory in RAM after installation to avoid write cicles.20:04
cobyrminimec, oh ok thank you. That is what the guide I was folling. I will get my iso burned correctly and then get on it. :D20:04
squintycobyr,  the installer will handle any partitioning of the full install usb stick.20:05
cobyrsquinty, automatically? or do you have to set up some manula partitions?20:05
squintycobyr, either  your choice20:06
cobyroh ok. I had problems with the automatic one. Simply wouldn't boot. Then again, i think I was trying install onto a usb stick from a CD... don't think that should matter.20:06
backboxwhats up_20:06
Blaatkipcobyr: http://askubuntu.com/questions/312782/how-to-install-ubuntu-on-separate-hard-drive-in-a-dual-boot20:07
Blaatkipit takes 2 steps basicly, during the install process20:07
cobyrminimec, I was mistaken. You'r tip was not mentioned in the guide. Thanks! I noted it.20:08
squintycobyr, just make sure, you install grub to the proper usb stick (that is, the full installation stick and not your hard drive or the iso stick)20:08
cobyrsquinty, oh ok thanks :D20:09
squintycobyr, fwiw, I used to disconnect any hard drives first before doing a full install to a usb stick.... ;-)20:09
cobyrBlaatkip, thanks for that link :D20:10
Blaatkipnp cobyr, u can have that page open while installing20:10
cobyrsquinty, well that's thorough. Kind of a pain but thorough. XD20:10

jdh239I have created a preseed file for 2 disks.  It creates a raid on the disk for the / partition, and also creates a swap partition (not raided) on each disk; however, instead of creating my swap partitions at the max size and then filling the rest of the disk up with the / partition, it creates the root partition at a fixed size and fills the rest of the disk up with the swap partitions.... essentially giving me swap partitions that equal 490 GB in size when20:51

rangergordtomreyn: I don't see 3 dashes. It's "linux /boot/vmlinuz/[...] [root=uuid...] ro"21:57
berkiyoNot sure how to help you man21:58
berkiyoToo many variables21:58
tomreynrangergord: if this also doesn't help, repeat the whole proess, but ionstead of adding " vga=791 ", add " nomodeset " or " xforcevesa "21:58
rangergordadd it after ro?21:58
timypcan you ping the router and can be ping from the VM ?21:58
berkiyoIt could be a corrupt installation of *buntu itself Jordy21:58
tomreynrangergord: let me check quickly21:58
pavlosJordy, the VB install may be to blame ... I tried on win10 host, ubuntu server as guest, VB 5.1.621:58
tomreynrangergord: my test VM is just installing updates, may take another 3 or 5 minutes21:59
rangergordtomreyn: np. i appreciate the help. I'll look up the flags to see if i can find an example in the meanwhile21:59
tomreynrangergord: if there's not ---, it's probably still fine to put it to the end. also, if present, remove "splash" and "quiet" options from that line22:00
Jordydamn :(22:01
tomreynJordy: when you say "IT does all work great until I restart VirtualBox after I install it" then the latter "it" refers to Virtualbox or Ubuntu? Which one do you restart, breaking "it"  there?22:03
JordyVirtualBox the program itself22:03
JordyI can reboot the VM and internet still works, it just stops working completely when I exit VirtualBox22:04
tomreynthen i agree it's an issue on the host Os side.22:04
rangergordtomreyn: I tried all 3 options (vga=791, xforcevesa, nomodeset) separate times after the "ro", then CTRL+X'ed, i still get a black screen with frozen cursor22:06
pavlosrangergord, the line looks like this ... linux   /boot/vmlinuz-4.4.0-57-generic root=UUID=73e75c98-a698-4fda-b5db-1f37a740fe1a ro  quiet splash22:06
tomreynthanks pavlos. so the idea was to remove "quiet splash" and place these other strings there, one by one22:07
tomreynis this what you did then, rangergord ?22:07

rangergord2logically speaking...it cant be a virtualbox service/video issues, right, since even text fails to load?22:16
pavlosrangergord2, do you have a live usb you can boot from?22:16

pavlosrangergord2, I came late in the conversation, you have VB 5.1.12 and created a guest ubuntu mate 16.04 which does not boot22:20

rangergord2tomreyn: I really dont see what it could be. VBox boots Ubuntu's bootloader, it can load grub, the memory test, etc.22:26
rangergord2so beyond that, it's an OS issue, no?22:26
rangergord2I might give up and start over22:27
tomreynrangergord2: or it could be a broken VDI file, where data is fine in early sectors, but missing or broken in later sectors.22:27
rangergord2thankfully 80% of my post-OS-install setup is automated22:27
rangergord2tomreyn: I can try copying again tmrw22:28
tomreynrangergord2: compare file sizes before you do, if they match, do checksumming on both ends. still faster than copying.22:29
rangergord2good point22:29
rangergord2well actually22:29
tomreyn(although you may still end up copying again, but then you'll know why at least)22:29
rangergord2the vdi was modified since, due to all the stuff we22:29
rangergord2we've bene doing. i'll recopy, but also check md522:29
tomreyni don't think i instructed you to make persistent changes. those edits in grub you did do not persist22:30
tomreynrangergord2: but it's possible that the OS got so far as to r/w mount the file system, in which case it won't match, good point.22:31
