FManTropyxafter booting, things are back to the way they were before I fixed them, which makes me unhappy with Ubuntu00:11

ghostali'm preparing to install ubuntu on a second, brand new disk installed in an existing windows 7 machine, and switching the boot drive to the new ubuntu drive, so it can handle the dual boot. but i'm terrified of borking up the windows 7 install. should i be?00:19
=== Guest47520 is now known as medberry
Jordan_UFManTropyx: Is this picure a file? On a camera? On a website? Somewhere else?00:19
k1l_ghostal: no. just be carefull what disk you choose in the installer.00:20
ghostalk1l_: mmm. that's my main concern as, apart from one being newer, the disks are otherwise identical00:20
k1l_FManTropyx: if you mean "how can i show a picture in here" then use imgur.com and show the link here00:20
k1l_ghostal: well, than its a 50% chance :)00:21
k1l_ghostal: the installer should show existing partitions. so you can see which hdd is which one00:21
ghostalk1l_: ahh. that's cool.00:21
ghostalanother question: when the bootloader is set up by ubuntu on the new disk, and detects the windows 7 on the original disk, will it make any changes to the windows boot loader on that disk? or would i, in theory, being able to change the boot order back and boot windows as if nothing had changed?00:21
Gamemakoghostal, you have 64-bit windows 7, yes?00:22
=== sagaras is now known as Loveless

Gamemakoghostal: just checking, since you can enter nightmare land if you try to mix 32-bit and 64-bit. Just my current headache :(00:23
k1l_ghostal: ubuntu wants to install grub into the MBR of the booting hdd. so it can let grub give you a choice if you want to boot windows or ubuntu (or others). but it will not make changes on your setup, when you made the ubunut disk the first disk and install grub there00:23
Sean_McGyou could unplug the windows disk while you install00:23
jeremiahhello all#00:24
ghostalSean_McG: i've considered that, for the sake of peace of mind. but is it easy then to add the windows 7 to the dual boot? never done it manually00:24
jeremiahwin 7 dual boot with linux is ok man00:25
=== Attoy_ is now known as Attoy
jeremiahbut forget about win 1000:25
ghostalk1l_: yeah... i figure, grub on the MBR of the new disk, and leave the existing windows 7 bootloader on the MBR of the original disk, unchanged00:25
jeremiahit's a pile of crap00:25
k1l_ghostal: when you run "sudo update-grub" it will again scan other disks for other OSs and will add them00:25
bazhangjeremiah, take the commentary elsewhere please00:26
jeremiahyeah soory00:26
ghostalk1l_: oooh. very handy. maybe i'll unplug the original disk while i install ubuntu then. it wouldn't be the first time i accidentally formatted the wrong disk :( luckily it would only be the second time though.00:26

FManTropyxwhen I make a resolution and apply it, how do I make it persist after boots?00:28
stevwillsFManTropyx: do you have a nvidia gpu?00:29

FroggerNewbie here. My goal is to have a setup whereby everytime i logon to my ubuntu account (or turn my computer on), files from one folder are backup up to another folder on my desktop. I tried options using rsync etc, all to no avail. Tips?00:42
reisioFrogger: do you want it every time you login or turn it on, or once a day?00:42
reisioAutinDroid: hi00:42
Froggerreisio, if there is a way to do it every day, regardless if my machine is one or off, thats fine. If not, then I want it every time i login00:43
whatisitNow I ran into an issue earlier where the download failed when installing grub00:43
Froggeris on or off*00:43
reisioFrogger: well it's just a matter of frequency00:43
whatisitI don't want to have this happen again, any suggestions?00:43
reisioFrogger: do you really want it every time you login if you login multiple times a day, or just once one time you login once a day00:43
reisioFrogger: the former may not be a problem, if it's not a crap-ton of files00:44
Froggerreisio, for now, let just say every time i login00:44
reisioFrogger: okay00:44
reisioFrogger: you're backing it up from one dir to another on the same FS?00:44
reisioyou want to be*00:44
whatisitAlso the image wouldn't load in legacy mode, only uefi (but I've installed in legacy before)00:44
Froggerreisio, bare in my mind i am very new to ubuntu and the terminal in general00:44
reisioFrogger: that won't be an issue :)00:44
Froggerreisio, i am backing up from one folder to another, both on my desktop00:45
stevwillswafflejock: the css file i need to edit would be within what file? gtk-3.0, gtk-3.20,00:45
reisioFrogger: okay, just real quick can I ask what you mean to accomplish by doing that?00:45
reisioFrogger: duplication on one FS isn't usually as useful as, for example, to another FS/device/etc.00:45
reisiostevwills: wb00:45
Froggerreisio, eventually, i am trying to backup files from an important folder to another folder that is linked to the cloud (to backup my data)00:46
whatisitis it better to boot ubuntu in legacy or uefi?00:46
reisioFrogger: okay00:46
reisioFrogger: any particular "cloud"?00:46
stevwillsreisio: ???00:46
reisiowhatisit: doesn't matter; one or the other may be simpler depending on your hardware00:46
reisiowhatisit: I'd say on average not UEFI will be simpler, but not always00:46
Froggerreisio, actually, im figuring all of that out now. I've been messing around with afew00:46
whatisitreisio: for some reason my unetbootin image won't load in legacy (but in the past I've installed in legacy)00:47
reisioFrogger: oh, well, if you can get something that accepts data over ssh or rsync, that'll save you time I think00:47
Froggerreisio, point is the clouds ive been using all sync with a local folder00:47
reisioFrogger: anyway, back to copying00:47
reisioFrogger: do you want a 1:1 backup, or incremental backups (each day's differences are separately available)00:48
Froggerreisio, i'm not sure, for now I'd be curious as to your approach in general. (i guess incremental backup however)00:48
reisioFrogger: I do tend to favor incremental by default, but 1:1 is perfectly fine if that's what you want00:49
reisioFrogger: 1:1 protects you against losing your data within a 24 hour period, if you accidentally delete it, say00:49
reisioFrogger: incremental arguably protects all versions of all data forever00:49
Froggerreisio, sure lets just say incremental.00:49
reisioFrogger: which you could argue would be a burden, if, for example, you backed up something you actually wanted to leave no trace of00:49
reisioFrogger: okay00:49
reisioFrogger: you want the silly Unity/GNOME-specific GUI way, or the ordinary terminal way? :p00:50
Froggerterminal if possible00:50
reisiogood answer :p00:50
reisioFrogger: you see ~/.config/autostart/ ?00:50
reisioFrogger: chances are you have a .desktop file in there that's already running something on login the way you want00:50
reisioFrogger: just copy it and change the command to a shell script to do your backup00:51
veysiubuntuhi ubuntu users00:51
reisioFrogger: in this case, I would recommend a "script" like this: rdiff-backup foo/ bar/00:51
reisioveysiubuntu: hi-o00:51
=== ubuntu is now known as Guest38183
wafflejockstevwills, I think the first but honestly not entirely sure guess it would depend if the app uses gtk3 or 3.2 but would just give them a go probably reload the theme afterwards or restart gnome to see changes I'd guess, sorry dunno details to say for sure00:52
reisioFrogger: & FFR, if you wanted it once-a-day vs once-a-login, look into anacron00:52
reisioFrogger: alternatively you could add logic to your script to know if it'd already been done that day00:52

lotuspsychjekankusht: can you explain to the channel what you are trying to achieve?02:55
lotuspsychjekankusht: tell us the whole story please02:55
kankushtsince my last update I've got some issues that don't allow me to open blender I think it is related to my graphic card, everytime I execute Blender in the terminal I received an error message that it says Xlib: extension GLX missing on display ":0.0"03:00
kankushtis there any way to solve it?03:00
lotuspsychjekankusht: ubuntu version? card model? driver loaded?03:01
WildPenguinhello, how can I encrypt disks in Lubuntu?03:02
lotuspsychje!encrypt | WildPenguin03:02
ubottuWildPenguin: For information on setting up encrypted private directories (8.10+) see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedPrivateDirectory03:02
WildPenguinI want the hard disk drives to be encrypted, so that they are not accessible even from the live usb.03:04
MestreLionHello everyone!03:04
kankushtUbuntu version 14.04; card model nvidea Geforce 256MB; driver Xorg (the default one)03:05
Jordan_UWildPenguin: That's easiest done at install time, where it's one of the options in the installer.03:05
rbattycan you do a fresh install?03:05
rbattyyeah what jordan said03:05
WildPenguinI have Lubuntu already installed.03:06
WildPenguinNow, what to do to encrypt the hard disk drives?03:06
rbattyif youre that worried about encryption i'd say a fresh install is worth it03:06
lotuspsychjekankusht: you could try a driver switch at the additional drivers section, and reboot03:06
WildPenguinwhich is the most mature and stable DE available for Ubuntu?03:08
rbattyjust so you know if you decide to encrypt and NOT do a fresh install, you won't be able to do full disk encryption. just the home folder03:08
WildPenguinrbatty, I know that option.03:09
wedgieWildPenguin: that might be a religious question :P03:10
WildPenguinwedgie, what?03:11
WildPenguinwhich question?03:11
wedgieWildPenguin: opinions on the "best" DE will vary greately based upon the answer's personal tastes03:11
MestreLionHi there kankusht03:12
WildPenguinGenerally, which is considered the most user friendly for the beginners and which has least bugs or other inconveniences.03:12
rbattyXfce! Xubuntu03:12
kankushtGood evening MestreLion03:13
WildPenguinok. Xubuntu.03:13
rbattyBut like wedgie said, different strokes for different folks. I prefer a more lightweight, easily customizable environment.03:14
wedgieWildPenguin: on ubuntu unity seems to get the most attention since it is the default. I personally like Mate03:14
WildPenguinok. I'll try both Xfce and Mate.03:14
WildPenguinthanks for your suggestions, guys.03:15
WildPenguinjust a casual and probably an off topic question, is the page hit ranking in distrowatch.com reliable?03:16
rbattyit's reliable in measuring trends, thats it03:16
rbattyits not a good measure of actual numbers of users03:16
rbattybut its probably safe to say the top 10 in distrowatch are probably the 10 most used distros03:17
rbattyjust not necessarily in the order as presented on distrowatch03:17
WildPenguinSo, if I need to get some most popular distros, I can go for top ten on that list?03:17
lotuspsychjelets stay ontopic guys03:18
rmcadamsHas anyone ever run into an issue where a trunk port on a switch - with a linux interface using vlans (ie:  eth0.20, eth0.21) can't get a DHCP address on the vlan interfaces?03:18
lotuspsychjermcadams: perhaps the ##networking guys know that103:18
wedgiermcadams: nope, haven't had that issue. Is the dhcp server recieving the requests at all?03:19
WildPenguinok. Thanks guys.03:20
wedgiermcadams: and does it work from various vlans on access ports?03:20
rbattynp penguin03:21
rmcadamsSo it's interesting right, there are 3 vlans on this interface, 2 static - both work no problem and 1 dhcp - which isn't getting an address.  If I tcpdump the interface I can see, quite easily that it's looking for the DHCP request on the .20 interface... but I'm not seeing the traffic make it to the switch which leads me to believe there's something03:21
rmcadamsblocking it.03:21
rbattyone thing you can try doing is installing ubuntu 16.04, then through the terminal install/remove different DEs to see what you like the best03:22
rbattythat way you aren't spending time installing all the different ubuntu flavors03:22
wedgiermcadams: and if you assign a static to the .20 interface does that work (just trying to verify the trunk setup)03:22
kankushtMore Details about my graphic card: nvidia GeForce 6200 TurboCache 256MB03:22
rmcadamswedgie:  I'm about to try that, but it's driving me crazy that it's not working.03:23
rbattyits how i first used xubuntu before i decided to go just install xubuntu on its own03:23
rbattyoh he left03:23
rmcadamsThe switchport is pretty simple (running cumulus)03:23
wedgiermcadams: well, if static doesn't work either that would rule out dhcp-specific problems. If it does, it rules out your trunk config as the problem03:23
rmcadamsdoesn't get much simpler than that03:24
wedgiermcadams: *shrug* stuff happens. And there's 2 sides to every trunk :P03:24
rmcadamswedgie: sure - this trunk was setup by MAAS, so I'm going to assume MAAS does it right ;)03:26
rmcadamsre-deploying in a few03:26
wedgiermcadams: maas looks neat. I should play with that one day03:27
rmcadamsyah, I run some pretty large scale OpenStack clusters, but I use MAAS to run them at home.03:28
MrKeunerhi, does ubuntu enable any firewalls with the default install?03:37
lotuspsychje!firewall | MrKeuner03:37
ubottuMrKeuner: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has built-in firewall capabilities. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | GUI frontends such as gufw and ufw-kde also exist. | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo03:37
gryi dont think its enabled by default. there's also apparmour which has related functionality, but per app instead of per port or per user03:37

rmcadamsbridge-vids 20 100 101 20004:17
wedgiermcadams: what's on the other end?04:17
Jordan_Urmcadams: Are the packets being tagged with a vlan by the host that's making the dhcp request or elsewhere?04:17
rmcadamsCumulus switch (Quanta Hardware)04:17
wedgiehmm, 0 experience with those so I won't be much help there04:18
rmcadamsyah, nothing super fancy, it's a debian based switch (network operating system)04:18
waltmanI see lots of past reports of people having the same problem I'm having, but no real solutions. Help!04:19
wedgiebut that's what I'd check first: does the vlan exist on the switch, is it permitted on that trunk interface, is the native vlan the same on both ends (if the native vlan is 20 in the switch for whatever reason then that could cause you trouble)04:19
rmcadamsyou know what, I think now that you mention it04:22
rmcadamsvlan 20 might be the default vlan on the bridge04:22

yshavitI'm trying to map my super key to meta on 16.04. I've found lots of references online to an optoin in System > Keyboard > Layout > Options for "map super to win," but that option isn't there. I tried looking in dconf but didn't see anything there, either. Is this possible?06:15
yshavitin case this is an xy problem: I'm basically trying to get my windows key to work like the command key on a mac06:16
Snowieyshavit: the super key is the windows key. I also think that most linux software use the super key in the same context as the command key on mac. unless i'm missing something06:17
yshavitSnowie: That's what I thought, too. The specific app I'm having trouble with is Intellij IDEA. When I try to type e.g. <Meta-N>, hitting the windows key makes IDEA think I'm hitting "Windows," and then hitting N (while keeping the win key down) types just "n"06:20
yshavitCould be that's an IDEA thing, but I thought maybe it wasn't, since apparently this functionality was an explicit option at some point.06:21
yshavitBut fwiw, it's similar in gnome-terminal. Typing alt-n or cntl-n doesn't do anything, as expected (since I don't have any shortcuts for those). But hitting win-n just types an 'n'06:22
Snowieyshavit: yeah, not sure on that one sorry. But is this a new problem or have you always had it. For some reason both of my control keys have magically stopped working, so if you having issues with similar modifier keys, maybe it's realted06:23
yshavitSnowie: To tell you the truth I don't know -- I haven't used this laptop in a while. Actually, largely because I can't get my intellij mappings the way I like them, because of this damn meta key ;)06:24

bouncemanI would like to use cut -d' ' because the space is the delimiter08:17
bouncemanbut I do not get it to work08:17

=== ubuntu is now known as Guest76248
bouncemanalkisg: is there a way for awk to handle if $2 contain spaces as well? example if the value is SIP/My Trunk-something08:28
alkisgbounceman: you need to better define your input. Is it like, something, space, something-with-spaces?08:29
wedgiebounceman: if you can write a regex for the "something" you could use grep -o08:29
Guest76248hey, i need little bit help in setting proxy08:29
bouncemanIt will vary, so I was thinking I'd just send an argument that says "look for this". The structure is ALWAYS "SIP/Something"08:30

alkisg1. SIP/sip.domain.se-0001ca72 (wait: 7:52, prio: 0) ==> how would it know where to stop? in " (" before the "wait"?08:31

wedgieSpeiros: first you have to mount it. look in /dev for the device name. Will probably be something like /dev/sdb. Run this: ls /dev/sd*08:51
ikevin-Speiros, mkdir what_ou_want && mount /dev/sd?? what_you_want && cd what_you_want08:51
Speiroswedgie ikevin- Ok, thanks eh:)  I'll have a look.08:51
traineeAbhibus though term ends no one left
Speiroswedgie ikevin- Thanks.  I can access them from there:)  What does the mkdir what_you_want command do?08:54
ikevin-Speiros, it create a directory08:54
Speirosikevin- I see, so is that in case I can't access it if ls doesn't work?08:55
ikevin-it depend of what ls return08:55
wedgieSpeiros: no, the ls /dev/sd* was to find out what the /dev/sd?? part was in order for you to mount it per ikevin-'s directions08:55

HexaChopHello everyone!09:13
SpeirosHi HexaChop09:13
HexaChopSpeiros, do you want an update on my issue?09:14
HexaChopSpeiros, so take a look at this. My MB has PCIe swithces to turn off GPUs with ease, did that, then switched SATA ports and my DVD drive started to work and actually booted into Linux using internal GPU. All there is left to install drivers for NVIDIA. But IDK how to do that because my GPUs are off and probably they cannot be detected by Linux Ubun09:16
HexaChopspeiros, switches*09:17
SpeirosHexaChop Okay.  That's a lot of progress mate:)09:17
HexaChopSpeiros, ikr, lol. But now the Drivers and I am probably done with this. FINALLY.09:17

SpeirosHexaChop Mate, it pays off in the long run.  I know little now, after 8-9 years, but no way would I ever go backwards to microstuffed.09:21
HexaChopSpeiros, how to manually install nvidia drivers from PPA?09:21
SpeirosHexaChop I have a similar problem with that, and haven't had the patience to work it out yet.  Sorry man.09:21
HexaChopSpeiros, that was one hell of a long run, lol.09:21
SlashLife^mMorning :)09:22
SpeirosHexaChop Yeah, but mate, since then I've been able to create that many documents how I want them for all business structures, as well as make websites (or being involved in them) and maintaining business structures, I've no motive to look back.09:22

SlashLife^mI have a problem with 16.04; I have setup three displays on a laptop, but when I maximize they use the full horizontal space on their respective screen, but not the full vertical space. I end up with a wide strip of background image between the lower border of the window and the lower border of the screen.09:31
HexaChopledeni, nothing there, because if I enable my GPUs, I am not going to be able to boot09:31
ledeniHexaChop,can you run lspci | grep VGA09:32
HexaChopledeni, see? it sees only the internal GPU, "00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Sky Lake Integrated Graphics (rev 06)"09:33

machusi have booted onto a liveusb and i need to get some files from the distro which is on the hard disk, is this possible?09:48
rderuitermachus: you should be able to mount the harddrive like any other device09:49
ledeniHexaChop, yes09:49
machusthe distro is ofcourse ubuntu09:49
HexaChopledeni, Perfect!09:49
machusrderuiter: after i take the files from the hard disk and copy them to the liveusb distro, will installing the liveusb distro get rid of the files that i had taken from the hard disk?09:50
machusyes to who, me?09:51
BitsOfSkinThey will stay on the USB09:51
BitsOfSkinUnless to state otherwise09:51
rderuiterthey probably won't be automatically copied to your new install, though. you'll have to do that manually.09:52
BitsOfSkinYou can choose to copy them from the USB at a later stage09:52
machusBitsOfSkin, are you sure this option will come up09:55
machusi don't want to transfer all of my files from the hard disk to live usb, only to find out that they have been deleted by the installation process09:55
machusi don't have a backup in this case09:56
BitsOfSkinThere is no reason why they would be deleted from the USB. Its only READING from the USB09:56
rderuiterif you have room on your USB, it'll be fine. the contents of the USB isn't altered during the install process.09:56
HexaChopioria, u there?09:57
machusas an example: let's say i copy /home/machus/1.txt from the hard dive to the Desktop folder of the liveusb, will the install process get rid of this 1.txt on the desktop?09:57
BitsOfSkinNo, it will remain on the USB09:57
machuswill a certain option arrive during the process informing me that there exists a 1.txt file on the Desktop, and whether i choose to keep it or not09:57
rderuiterno, the liveUSB isn't engineered to do backup/restore for you.09:58
rderuiteryou'll have to do it manually.09:58
msevworkif i wanted to use Google's STT and TTS in some python scripts, would i have to pay for the api, or is it free (how much requests per month)? Does anyone know?09:58
BitsOfSkinOnce your install is complete, simple move from the USB to your completed install09:58
machusrderuiter: in other words, after transferring the 1.txt to the Desktop, i'll have to do something to inform the liveusb not to delete it during the install process?09:59
BitsOfSkinNo, it will not be deleted anyway bro09:59
rderuiterit won't be deleted. the liveUSB doesn't care what files are on the USB. It only installs from packages.09:59
rderuiterthe USB will not be altered in any way.10:00
machusok i was just double checking, i dont want to lose all the files10:00
rderuiteryour files will be safe, but you'll have to copy them from the USB to your new install manually.10:00
BitsOfSkinYou could create a small partition on the HD and use that for backups too, but that's not required. Your files will be safe and will remain on the USB10:01
* rderuiter likes backups. :)10:02
* BitsOfSkin does too10:02

Sam54TheDiveO check release changes10:24
BluesKajHexaChop, I don't use the unity desktop or pulse audio, so that's as far as I can go10:24
Snowiegabmus: fair enough. so i'm pretty sure the latest supported drivers are in the repos.10:25
HexaChopBluesKaj, I found it on the Ubuntu Software app10:25
gabmusSnowie: all I need is the package names, if you could provide (at least part of) them it'd be really nice :)10:26
Snowiegabmus: Ah, yeah. This is the support channel so i'm not sure you will get what you need here, i think you might have better luck with #ubuntu-dev i think it is, but not sure.10:27

BluesKajgabmus, look for "additional drivers"10:32
turbo64is there a way to get the ttys to work and also have plymouth work10:32
turbo64i cant use the tty consoles unless i disable graphical grub10:32
turbo64but when i do that, i have no plymouth splash screen on boot10:32
Snowiegabmus: i'm really not sure what you mean. I have an nvidia card, i open "addiitional drivers" and pick one from the suggested list. Outside of that, you would be using standard linux utils to determine what card it is, and then hitting the manufacturers site to get the driver for that card. what ubuntu specific things are you after?10:33
BluesKajturbo64,  wait for the login page, then ctl+alt+F1_F610:33
turbo64it doesnt work after logging in either10:33
rderuiterturbo64: weird. I can access my TTYs and I have plymouth active.10:33
turbo64its just a blank screen10:33
turbo64the problem only seems to happen on certain video cards10:33
turbo64it has to do with modesetting i think10:34
turbo64or at least thats what i heard, but i tried nomodeset and that didnt fix the ttys10:34
rderuiterturbo64: ah. works fine on radeon, anyway :)10:34
turbo64i have an old thinkpad with intel integrated graphics10:34
rderuiterick :D10:34
gabmusSnowie: if you were not using the "additional drivers" software, you'd need to install the packages that "additional drivers" installs, but from your package manager (command line apt, or synaptic). All I want to know is what packages are needed on ubuntu for each of the configurations I need.10:35
BluesKajdon't login  at the login page , you 'l be asked for a login prompt after the ctl+alt+F keys10:35
turbo64well the point is i need to be able to access the TTYs at all times10:35
Snowiegabmus: doesn't this give you packages and their dependencies, nvidia as an example. http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=nvidia&searchon=names&suite=yakkety&section=all10:36
turbo64so when something crashes and freezes up X or gets stuck in full screen or something like that, i can kill the process without having to restart and lose all of my data10:36
BluesKajturbo64, you have to wait for the systems to load and that doesn't happen until you arrive at the login10:37
turbo64the ttys dont work after the systems are loaded10:37
turbo64as i said earlier10:37
HexaChopHeadphones not working on linux, works fine on windows. Could somebody help?10:38
rderuiterI can barely remember the last time I had to kill a process via a TTY... it's been years...10:38
gabmusSnowie: not really. there are different packages for different cases (ie: nvidia-304 is a legacy driver for a specific set of legacy cards). I could guess which ones I need to install, but that'd be potentially harmful, if one of my guesses is wrong people will come up with broken Xorg sessions10:38
turbo64linux in general has a problem with programs not crashing gracefully10:39
turbo64at least when stuff crashes in windows, ctrl-alt-delete will usually get you out of it10:39
brunch875HexaChop: Is your audio output the proper one?10:39
turbo64or hangs rather10:39
mcphailgde33: the Ubuntu ttf-mscorefonts-installer package is broken just now. Lots of arguments about how best to fix it. Some people are using the upstream debian package instead, but mixing debs from different distributions is dangerous10:40

BluesKajgabmus, the additonal drivers package shows a recommended driver for your gpu10:40
brunch875turbo64: I disgress; find it easier to kill stuff in ubuntu10:40
brunch875HexaChop: Well then, go to sound settings and see the output devices :p10:40

turbo64i thought ctrl-alt-backspace doesnt work anymore10:40
brunch875ctrl-alt-backspace is disabled by default10:40
brunch875besides, it doesn't do the same as in windows10:40
gabmusBluesKaj: again, I don't like the way it works, that's why I am making another similar, hopefully better and cross-distro tool10:40
rderuiterturbo64: only if it has been specifically turned off10:40
turbo64well the problem with that is ill lose my data in any other programs that are open10:41
turbo64because that just kills X10:41

Snowiegabmus: so i think you're looking for the tool that does this, suggests a driver, in ubuntu it's a package called ubuntu-drivers, but i'm not sure how it makes the suggestion. i still think that question might be better in the dev channel https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia10:43
turbo64regardless of that, i still want to be able to use my TTYs and still have a graphical boot10:44
rderuiteras far as I'm aware, ubuntu-drivers scans the hardware in the system and installs the appropriate packages. you'll have to do something similar in your app, gabmus.10:44
HexaChopbrunch875 that would be firefox :DDD10:44
brunch875HexaChop: Surprising. Perhaps you're muted hardware-level from windows. Care to boot there and see if you can unmute?10:45

ubottuHexaChop: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. While you wait, try searching https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org or http://askubuntu.com/11:03
VolisHi, I'm in some trouble. I installed Ubuntu on my computer and pressing any key on keyboard brings the "shutdown, reboot, suspend, switch user..." dialog11:03
VolisI'm not able to do anything11:04
k1l_HexaChop: headphones do work on ubuntu. so you need to give informations what is happening exactly. you are still at "my car doesnt work"11:04
VolisI have so far tried rebooting, no luck. Reinstall, no luck. Installed Lubuntu instead, still the problem persists11:04
alkisgVolis: how did you install, was your keyboard working then?11:04
HexaChopk1l, it just plays on external speakers instead of headphones despite the fact that I selected headphones.11:05
HexaChopk1l_, it just plays on external speakers instead of headphones despite the fact that I selected headphones.11:05
k1l_HexaChop: "my car doesnt work, it worked yesterday"11:06
Volisalkisg, Before installing, I chose "Try Ubuntu without installing". The keyboard worked fine in that!11:06

therielhi! quick question.. is there any pdf viewer for ubuntu which can do "whole word" search?11:06
k1l_HexaChop: what type of connection? simultaniously with speakers? where did you change to headphones?11:07
therieladding spaces doesn't help because it doesn't do anything with tables11:07
alkisgVolis: try with an older kernel, there's an option for that in the initial grub menu, "advanced ubuntu options" or something11:07
HexaChopk1l_ just speakers. Headphones are quiet.11:07
BluesKajdid you choose heaphone out in pulseaudio11:08
Volisalkisg, um okay how do I enter the GRUB menu? I rebooted and it straight away loaded Lubuntu11:08
HexaChopBluesKaj, I have no pulse audio app11:09
k1l_its the sound system settings11:09
BluesKajit's defualt on ubuntu HexaChop11:09
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, Reboot and remember to press Shift key repeatedly until you reach to that menu.11:09
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, okay let me try that11:09
HexaChopBluesKaj, where is it located?11:10
BluesKajHexaChop, sound system settings as k1l_  just posted11:12
HexaChopBluesKaj, that is simply named "Sound"?11:12
BluesKajHexaChop, better learn hoe to navigate your desktop iof you're gonna run ubuntu11:13
xXEoflaOEXxHexaChop, Yes.11:13
HexaChopBluesKaj, already selected Headphones11:14
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, Have you got the GRUB menu?11:16
HexaChopBluesKaj, but plays on speakers instead, lol11:17
HexaChopBluesKaj, so frustrating that it makes me laugh.11:18
BluesKajHexaChop, dunno , I don't use puleaudio anymore, so i can't go any further11:19
HexaChopk1l_, any suggestions?11:20
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, I couldn't... Tried pressing shift all the time, now Lubuntu isn't booting either11:20
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, I've tried both shift keys so far11:21
therieli guess my question got lost :D so many people joining and entering, plus other questions.11:21
therielif anyone has any suggestions please let me know!11:21
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, Lubuntu logo comes on the screen and stays there for a while and the computer shuts down11:22
k1l_HexaChop: it is very very exhausting to help you when you dont give informations that are requested. what type of connection do you use? there is bluetooth, audio cable, hdmi,..... there are nearly 10000 possible issues. so i dont know where to start instead of asking you the same questions on basic informations over and over again since you dont answer that.11:23
BluesKaj!pdf | theriel11:23
ubottutheriel: The Portable Document Format is created by Adobe; PDF files are viewable in Ubuntu with Xpdf, Okular, Evince and also Adobe Reader (free download, but closed source)11:23
HexaChopk1l_, Audio Jack, SONY headphones, used on front case audio jack. RealTek sound card.11:24
k1l_HexaChop: and the speakers on the same jack?11:24
BluesKajhda-intel audio chip11:24
Volistheriel, it seems to be a basic feature, what softwares you have tried so far?11:24
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, Try to restart, when Lubuntu logo comes, press the arrow key (up) one time and it shows you logs. Does (Reached target shutdown) appear?11:25
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, no reached target shutdown does not appear11:25
VolisThe screen just goes black and it goes off11:25
HexaChopk1l_, on the back MB port11:25
k1l_HexaChop: does the backside outjack work?11:25
therielevince, okular? find is a basic feature, but it doesn't have any sort of regex or "whole word" type option, that i can see.11:26
therielonly option is case sensitive11:26
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, OK, Then it is the booting issue. Try to get live CD, backup your files, and reinstall from fresh. When it is reinstalled, restore the file.11:26
HexaChopk1l_, yup, both do on Windows11:26
k1l_HexaChop: does it now work when you use the backside audiojack with the headphones?11:27
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, oh wait it just booted. This laptop is tricky because it has a 32-bit UEFI and a 64-bit system11:27
therielrecoll can do whole word searches, but it's a bit overkill for what i want.. basically to stay in the same gui interface and find a word11:27
theriele.g. find "son" without finding reason11:27
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, I had to use these instructions to install https://github.com/lopaka/instructions/blob/master/ubuntu-16.04-install-asus-x205ta.md11:27
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, OK.11:27
HexaChopk1l_, it works fine there.11:28
HexaChopk1l_ but when PC is huge, no way I could be comfortable with that11:28
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, TLDR, 1. Burn ISO to USB; 2. Build GRUB locally and copy `bootia32.efi` to USB.; 3. Select try Ubuntu; 4. Some commands to get the WiFi working. and so on11:28
Volislike I don't have the WiFi working here11:29
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, I'm installing Ubuntu 16.10 now11:30
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, then what what architecture you are using? and what computer type you are using? BIOS or UEFI?11:30
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, OK.11:30
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, I burned the amd64 iso to USB. The computer is Asus X205TA. I think it's UEFI11:30
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, Does the UEFI support 64-bit? or just 32-bit?11:31
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, Only 32-bit. I think it's called mixed mode which the 16.10 ISO doesn't support. That's why I have to copy `bootia32.efi` after I burn USB.11:32
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, then test the BIOS and boot to hard drive, See if it shuts down. If it is the case for UEFI, then it is the problem.11:34
HexaChopk1l_, any more questions, mate?11:34
k1l_HexaChop: see "alsamixer" program in terminal if there is something muted.11:35
VolisxXEoflaOEXx, oh wait, how do I do that?11:35
therielVolis: if you can multitask with getting help for your own issues, i'm still curious about suggestions for "whole word only" searches in pdf viewers11:36
xXEoflaOEXxVolis, go to UEFI menu, search for PC mode that says UEFI or something similar. and change it to BIOS, then save and exit.11:36
HexaChopk1l, everything is on max11:36
therielmaybe i am missing something with evince and okular11:36
HexaChopk1l_, everything is on max11:37
k1l_HexaChop: then i dont know. i am not a sound specialists. so look up for your exact audio card model and if that is a known issue11:38
HexaChopk1l_, hexachop@hexachop-pc:~$ pulseaudio11:39
HexaChopE: [pulseaudio] pid.c: Daemon already running.11:39

RonWhoCaresyeeve: Actually youtube won't connect either.  Is there a way to flush DNS cache / restart it with systemctl15:31
JP__Speiros: Does your account have admin privilages?15:31
yeeveRonWhoCares, that's odd, even if something got corrupt I would expect it to effect all websites via the browser, odd that it's just facbeook. Do you know if your network connection goes through a 3rd party or proxy of some kind?15:32
JP__PenTester1249: chmod - -help15:32
alkisgRonWhoCares: is your date/time correct? https will have issues with wrong client dates15:32
yeeveRonWhoCares, I don't think it's DNS related as the IP4 address you tried before will bypass a DNS request15:32
yeevealkisg, nice call, something I wouldn't have though to ask him to check15:32
RonWhoCaresalkisg: Date - time correct15:32
SpeirosJP__No, but I accessed my root account from here a day or two ago, with a command, but forgot it.  It was a su command.15:32
Younderalkisg, http://pastebin.com/MY43dEeC15:33
alkisgRonWhoCares: what's the output of this command? host www.facebook.com15:33
yeeveSpeiros, su will try load a root shell and as such it requests the root user password (most of the time your root account shouldn't have a password, shouldn't allow login or should have a secure password)15:33
RonWhoCaresalkisg: www.facebook.com is an alias for star-mini.c10r.facebook.com.  Host star-mini.c10r.facebook.com not found: 2(SERVFAIL)   Host star-mini.c10r.facebook.com not found: 2(SERVFAIL)15:34
alkisgYounder: it says "not found", not permission issues. I'm guessing either problem in your isp or in sourceforge's servers15:34
yeeveSpeiros, sudo is used to escalate your current shell to allow you to use certain programs/features as root. Sudo is separate program to manage all this. To use sudo you have to call it each time (you can make it cache the password but not usually advised)15:34
yeeveRonWhoCares, if you run `ping facebook.com` you should see an IP address, can you try that?15:35
alkisgRonWhoCares: and what's the output of: host www.facebook.com  ?15:35
Speirosyeeve Yes, that's correct.  I accessed it the other day so I could make one of my drives work, which it does now.15:35
JP__Speiros: staying in root tends to break things15:35
JP__Having said that, i am always in root :p15:35
yeeveSpeiros, try avoid root/su and use sudo  when you need certain permissions.15:35
Younderalkisg, Yes It sound like it. Perhaps the problem will resolve itself when the server sid gets fixed.15:35
RaulwynnI am not sure this is the right place. If this should be posted elsewhere, let me know. I am looking to make a set of console command (or use a program) to download RSS feed information into some kind of document aka text or sheets file.15:36

SpeirosJP__I dont intend to stay there, hence I have a user account.  Still, that other code allowed me to get in there to grant the permissions.15:36
RonWhoCaresyeeve: ping facebok.com works; using the IP address is 'server not found'15:36
yeeveSpeiros, what are you wanting to use the root account for this time?15:36
Speirosyeeve I can't get sudo without first opening su though.15:36
Speirosyeeve I can't open tor in my user account, as I downloaded it in my admin account.15:36
yeeveHow did you setup your user account and sudo? By default ubuntu usually adds you into the right place so your normal user can use/call sudo15:36
Speirosyeeve Normally that's a good idea.15:36
Speirosyeeve I'm after the commands to do just that mate.15:37
RonWhoCaresalkisg: http://pastebin.com/Zg4da3D315:37
yeeveSpeiros, if you call `sudo ls` what happens? does it request a password or just show `ls` output?15:37
JP__Speiros: Don't ask me for help when you break things :P:P:P:P ---> sudo su15:37
alkisgRonWhoCares: sounds like a broken dns server then, so configure your internet to use, the google one15:37
JP__Let's you stay in root mode untill you close the terminal15:37

yeeveRaulwynn, clarify the sudo bit or the gcc line?16:42
RaulwynnDo I run that in the virt env or terminal?16:42

yeeveRaulwynn, I know that feeling xD17:06
fribnicomachus, any ideas?17:06
nicomachusfrib: not the slightest. it's odd.17:06
fribnicomachus, ahhhhhh should i just reinstall os?17:07
nicomachusthat may be a bit extreme.17:07
nicomachusunless this is a fresh install.17:07
fribnicomachus, i am losing more time trying to figure out the solution17:07
alPg0Raulwynn, try running the conda commands outside the conda env. open a new terminal and paste in all the conda commands only without the source activate in between.17:07
nicomachustry rebooting first.17:07
YouRockBeastBoymy dad says get windows 1017:07

yeeve`python3 --version` works for me17:08
yeeveRaulwynn, ^^17:08
Raulwynnyeeve I missed one of the dashes... To big of a hurry I suppose17:09
alPg0Raulwynn, I think the error happened because you ran the conda command while inside the orange3 env.17:09
fribioria, if I plug in my headphones, the audio switches, but that's just automatic, i can't connect bluetooth devices17:09
Raulwynnyeeve, Oh, snap. I'm on 3.5.217:09
RaulwynnalPg0, You are correct. It's running an installer now.17:09
Raulwynn*fingers crossed*17:10
yeeveRaulwynn, that's not a bad thing, I just wanted to see because the error mentioned 3.617:10
yeeveRaulwynn, try follow alPg0 recommendation and see what happens17:10
Raulwynnyeeve, Is there a way to see if I have python installed multiple times?17:10
yeeveRaulwynn, there will be a way :S maybe `whereis python`17:11
yeevefor me it shows 3.5 and 2.7 versions17:11
nicomachusfrib: you may try reinstalling the unity-control-center17:11
fribnicomachus, i tried!17:11
nicomachusfrib: sudo apt install --reinstall unity-control-center17:11
RaulwynnAlso, I would like clarification on how conda works... So it's in my home folder, and I can still run it like programs installed in a su drive? How does it work, where can I research? yeeve alPg017:11
fribnicomachus, no effect!17:12
nicomachusfrib: how about ubuntu-desktop? same process. apt install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop17:12
fribwhat is ubuntu-desktop?17:12
yeeveRaulwynn, sorry dude no idea about conda xD I thought it was similar to venv in that you get a special environment with the conda stuff available17:12
Raulwynnyeeve, I have like 30 different python dir17:12
yeeveRaulwynn, that's not good :P17:13
nicomachusfrib: that's you're whole desktop environment.17:13
alPg0Raulwynn, anaconda is from continuum analytics: https://docs.continuum.io/anaconda/17:13
fribnicomachus, i use fluxbox17:13
Raulwynnyeeve, I have python2.7 and /python3.5m both in usr/bin dirs17:13
fribnicomachus, anyway I reinstalled it with no effect17:13
yeeveRaulwynn, that's kind of what I expected so hopefully that's OK, I feel like if I'm not careful I'm going to make your issue worse because I don't understand much about conda or pip/venv17:14
RaulwynnalPg0, Thank you I will look them up. I feel that using a virtual type envoirnment would be really cool to work on projects without breaking the OS17:14
nicomachusfrib: I'm pretty lost.17:14
Raulwynnyeeve, I agree17:14
fribyou! hahah what does that say a bout me17:14
alPg0Raulwynn, anaconda has its own versions of everything in ~/miniconda3. It is largely independent of the host system.17:14
Raulwynnyeeve alPg0, If I can get orange to work after this. I'm not touching anything.17:14
ioriafrib, fluxbox ? so you're not using unity ?17:15
nicomachusfrib: you don't know me, I could be a 10 year old asking for someone to look at my teamviewer.17:15
yeeveRaulwynn, do you have access to virtualbox/VMs at all? When I was trying pip/npm and stuff for the first time I like to setup a VM I can nuke when stuff goes wrong or snapshot and revert certain bits for testing17:15
yeeveRaulwynn, this "orange3" better be worth it :P17:15
fribioria, i am using fluxbox and the "unity-control-center" ap17:15
fribioria, it always worked!17:15
RaulwynnI have three computs. I can run a VM on one. The idea never really appealed to me but I think for this instance I'll run a try. Also, I have no experience with VM on Ubuntu.17:16
ioriafrib, but you installed ubuntu desktop, or what ?17:16
minimecfrib: You need to start 'unity-settings-daemon' at the beginning of your session. Otherwise you cannot use the controlceter correctly.17:16
RaulwynnF*** yes! Orange is ready to go!17:16
RaulwynnalPg0 yeeve, Thank you guys!17:16
ioriafrib,  if you switch to unity from the login screen ?17:16
yeeveRaulwynn, thanks awesome, I was doubting our abilities for a second there :D17:17
RaulwynnalPg0, You have more experience with conda. I may ask another favor of you.17:17
fribminimec, i never had to do that before. anyway I tried it now as you suggested.  My screen resolution changed and audio devices are still not present.17:17
fribioria, i would have to disconnect from IRC17:17
ioriafrib, cat /proc/asound/modules17:17
RaulwynnSo I have orange pulled up here, there is no launcher or anything (I'm using my own custom launcher.17:18
fribminimec, upon trying to restore my screen res via control center: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files17:18

fribalso this weird thing happens now where at some point a terminal will get stuck in the upper left hand corner of the screen, can't move it or close it (??)17:19
yeevefrib, if you press alt+f2 do you see a input box pop up?17:20
fribyeeve, yes17:20
alPg0Raulwynn, i would write a shell script that first does the "source activate orange3" and then runs the orange gui command and then create a launcher for that.17:20
fribioria, # deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 16.04 LTS _Xenial Xerus_ - Release amd64 (20160420.1)]/ xenial main restricted17:20
yeevetype in xkill and you'll get a X cursor, if you click on the term window it should kill it for you :) not sure why it sticks in the first place but this will atleast get rid of it :)17:21
ioriafrib,  ok, so you have unity installed.... why don't you try from there ?17:21
fribioria, ok ill brb then17:21
RaulwynnalPg0, How/where do I add the Orange icon for that?17:21
RaulwynnalPg0, Forget that I'll download it an do it manually.17:22
minimecfrib: I use e17 as window manager and also used other environments. You either need 'gnome-settings-daemon' or 'unity-settings-daemon' to be able to use the gnome/unity control center. As default in ubuntu unity-settings-daemon is installed. It might be, that in your installation gnome-settings-daemon is installed. It depends on the install medium you used.17:22
yeeveRaulwynn, an icon which will show in your explorer window or an icon which shows in the startmenu or panel?17:22

fribeven if it doesn't I will use another app.  please advise!17:26
Raulwynnhey alPg0, It won't let me launch the command from the launcher17:26
Raulwynnit will in terminal but not through the launcher17:26
ioriafrib,  something like gnome-sound-app or panel .... don't remember ....17:26
yeeveRaulwynn, that can happen when the paths don't quite match up. In your terminal are you cd'ing to a specific folder to run it or just from your home?17:27
RaulwynnI'm running it in the "~" dir17:28
nicomachusalso, gnome-panel17:28
yeeveRaulwynn, and what command are you running in the launcher? Do you know if the launcher settings has an option/input for "working directory"?17:28
fribnicomachus, gnome-panel adds the menu bar on my desktop17:29
fribgnome-control-center has like 2 things in it17:29
RaulwynnI run this "~$ orange-canvas" in the terminal it has no problems but when I click the same command in the launcher it dowsn't work.)17:30
RaulwynnI run this "~$ orange-canvas" in the terminal it has no problems but when I click the same command in the launcher it dowsn't work.) alPg017:30
alPg0Raulwynn, you'll probably need to activate the conda env with "source activate orange3". I'd write a shell script.17:30
ioriafrib,  have you tried pavucontrol ?17:30
RaulwynnOh, my. I don't think I'm ready for this... What do I gotta do? alPg017:30
nicomachusioria: ah, that's a good solution.17:31
fribioria, nope but i just did now, seems good17:31
yeeveRaulwynn, in your home folder create a file called run-orange.sh and inside you will type the commands you need to source the orange env and then run your script. You can't call multiple commands/lines easily in the launcher so it's easier to write a single .sh file and run that via the launcher instead17:32

RaulwynnSeems a lot simpler than I thought it would be, still working on it. I'm trying to stray from the ubuntu software center. I want to build a LFS system and that doesn't use the software center.17:59
sardioranyone familiar with the problems with loading steam on Ubuntu 16.4?18:00
znebwerxhi all i have a very strange problem with my laptop18:00
Raulwynnznewberx, I have noticed that. I think they are encouraging those who know and understand linux to the Steam OS18:01
RaulwynnI've noticed that the games even, on the same hardware, whether a nongui linux vs Steam OS run literally twice as fast. znewberx18:01
fribit used to be that if I paired an audio device it would immediately connect and be usable.  Now I am able to pair only but the device remains unconnected (and unusable).  How to fix??18:02
=== nat__ is now known as Natkeeran
SpeirosOh, I got my issue resolved...I went about it differently:D18:02
znebwerxsorry i dont understand, havent exposed it yet18:02
Raulwynnznewberx, What is the issue you're having?18:03
sardiorI can run a script in a terminal window to make it work, but can't get the gui icon to work18:03
znebwerxwhen i power on my laptop it takes very long time to load bios , up to 20 minutes and more,18:04
sardiorhere's the script... rather short18:05
sardiorLD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/$LIB/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/$LIB/libxcb.so.1 /usr/$LIB/libgpg-error.so' /usr/bin/steam18:05
naccznebwerx: if it takes that long to load bios, something sounds like it is wrong with your computer, not an ubuntu issue18:05
naccsardior: why are you using a script to load steam? the version from the partner repository?18:05
naccsardior: s/partner/multiverse/18:05
sardiorI loaded it and it doesn't work. starts to load and then quits18:05
Raulwynnznewberx, if your BIOS is taking that long to boot, that is far before the OS even loads, much before Steam boots. That would be a setting in your bios that is wrong, or a failed post test.18:06
HexaChopSpeiros, you there/18:06
=== tinti is now known as Guest2210
znebwerxok thank you, i was just wandering if any diagnostics tool is suitable18:07
Gamemakoznebwerx: It could be that you have something broken like duplicated invalid entries which just slowly time out-- have you checked efibootmgr -v for anything unusual?18:08
bray90820_Can you install ubuntu on a raspberry pi?18:08
naccsardior: why are you changing how steam loads? what version of steam?18:08
znebwerxno, do i type it in a terminal?18:09
sardiorI could try removing and reloading, this is the repository: http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/18:09
sardior@nacc Latest version as far as I know18:09
naccsardior: can't really help at that point, steam is packaged for ubuntu in the multiverse repository18:09
Gamemakoznebwerx: yes, and I believe you will also need sudo18:09
naccsardior: for the version you are trying to use, you'd need to ask steam18:09
DJonesbray90820_: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi Hope that link helps, its not something I've done though18:10
fribanyone know how to get bluetooth audio devices to work in ubuntu?18:10
znebwerxok tnx i proceeed immediately18:10
sardiorOk, I was just there but with only 17 asleep users I didn't get much response.18:10
znebwerxcoomand not found18:10
znebwerxi use sudo18:10
naccsardior: the steam repository isn't officially supported by ubuntu, that's a steam thing (equivalent to a PPA), they are the only ones that can provide support18:10
znebwerxsorry i used sudo18:11
sardiorok. Thank you, but it worked on my last LTS ubuntu.18:11
sardiorI'll check with them.18:12
znebwerxmy distro is kxstudio 140418:12
znebwerxok it was not installed , i have just installed it now18:13
minimecfrib: I saw your question before. My suggestion is, to start a unity session first and see, whether you can connect to your bluetooth audio device. Afterwards, you could start to debug the problem with your fluxbox session. So.. first try if 'ubuntu default' is working... ;)18:13
znebwerxFatal: Couldn't open either sysfs or procfs directories for accessing EFI variables.18:13
znebwerxTry 'modprobe efivars' as root.18:13
fribminimec, on it! thanks18:14
Gamemakoznebwerx: I guess I should have asked first, how old is your machine? I suppose I take for granted that you're on an EFI BIOS these days18:14
Joelwhat's ubuntu's equivelant of kickstart?18:14
naccJoel: preseed18:14
znebwerxyes it an i7 efi machine18:14
BluesKajbray90820_, yes , ubuntu-mate has an arm image for raspberry pi https://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/18:14
naccJoel: although ubuntu has some support for kickstart as well, just not all of the syntax18:14
bray90820_BlueShark thanks18:15
BluesKajbray90820_, also support in #raspberrpi chat18:15
BluesKajoops #raspberrypi18:15
fribminimec, unity has the same result (I actually tried it earlier when I was in unity and forgot!)18:16
Joelnacc thanks18:16
minimecfrib: ok. As far as I remember the bouetooth device is recognized by the system right?18:18
znebwerxznebwerx@znebwerx-S551LB:~$ sudo efibootmgr -v18:18
znebwerxFatal: Couldn't open either sysfs or procfs directories for accessing EFI variables.18:18
znebwerxwhat does itmean?18:18
fribminimec, yes pairs fine18:18
minimecfrib: can you once do 'rfkill list all' in a terminal?18:19
fribminimec, it's always that "connect/create audio device" part that is the problem18:19
fribminimec, no soft/hard block18:19
znebwerxafter more than 20 minutes of waiting, i always find linux booted and perfectly working18:21
minimecfrib: ok. let's check pulseaudio. 'pactl list short sinks'18:22
znebwerxbut no way to access the bios before it decides to boot18:22
fribpactl list short sinks18:22
fribminimec, http://paste.ubuntu.com/23782894/18:23
minimecfrib: ok. So the device is not connected...18:23
fribminimec, no, paired then disconnects18:24
fribremains in the paired devices list18:24
stan_man_canI have a second hard drive used for storage and right now it mounts under my user instead of in the system, how do I change that?18:25
minimecfrib: Can you remove it once and pair again? You probably did that before, but try to remove the device from the list of paired devices.18:25
stan_man_canissue is right now when I reboot my computer I have to go into disks and manually mount it18:25
fribminimec, i did it a bunch of times18:25
Skaaganyone here ever had to deal with a 3M USB Touchscreen?18:27
SkaagI managed to invert the axes and now when I touch the screen the cursor moves correctly across the axes18:27
Skaaghowever the numbers are off, so I run xinput_calibrator and I touch the corners, but the numbers it calculates are way off18:28
minimecfrib: Can you check whether the 'pulseaudio-module-bluetooth' package is installed?18:29
fribminimec, pulseaudio-module-bluetooth is already the newest version (1:8.0-0ubuntu3.1).18:30
minimecfrib: 'sudo -i pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover'18:30
RaulwynnHow to I create a launcher for a program installed with miniconda? the terminal command is simply "orange-canvas" it works in terminal. It doesn't work with a launcher, It doesn't work with a shell script. Anyone?18:30

JuJUBeeTrying to manage my music files currently have /MUSIC/Artist/Album/Song.mp3  How should I handle multi-disk sets?  Album (Disk 1)  or for the song have 1-01 Song.mp3?18:33
JuJUBeeJust looking to see what others do about this?18:33
RaulwynnJuJUBee Place all songs with a 3 digit number18:34
JuJUBeewhere first digit is disk number and next 2 are track ?18:34
Raulwynnin one folder. I.E., 112 is CD 1 track 12 and 206 is CD 2 track 0618:34
JuJUBeeReason I am asking is that I had to download my entire library from Google Play Music cuz my HD died.18:35
Raulwynnthe syntax is off but that's what I do. Like numbering hotel rooms.18:35
JuJUBeeGoogle thought it would be nice to name all songs with a track number and some with disk-track18:35
Raulwynnlook into MonkeyMedia I think it is... If I remember correctly you may need to WINE it but it will search online metadata and you can rename and folder with one click. Super handy. I'm not on my media server right now or I would help you more. JuJUBee18:36
RaulwynnWhat exactly is newer, 16.04 or 16.10?18:38
EriC^^Raulwynn: 16.1018:39
minimecfrib: Hmm... Have a look at this. I don't know whether removing/loading 'btusb' could be a solution... http://askubuntu.com/a/77993418:39
RaulwynnEriC^^ What is the difference? just slightly updated? I perfer the LTS model.18:40
EriC^^Raulwynn: yeah, same here18:40
fribminimec, i saw that, tried it18:40
RaulwynnEriC^^ Thanks bro.18:40
EriC^^Raulwynn: it also is just supported for 9months18:40
minimecfrib: and this? http://askubuntu.com/questions/689281/pulseaudio-can-not-load-bluetooth-module-15-10-16-04-16-10?noredirect=1&lq=118:41

EriC^^Raulwynn: no problem18:41
vandanahave wifi issue.. device (wlan0): link timed out  in syslog. power management is off still after a while wifi automatically goes down18:41
fribminimec, why does pactl work as user but not root?18:42
fribminimec, also wouldn't this module have to be loaded to pair, as I have done?18:42
minimecfrib: Because you have a pulseaudio sessioni running as user...18:42
fribminimec, is that ok?18:43
fribminimec, also, don't I already have an X11 session runnig?18:43
minimecfrib: Not for pairing. After pairing, pulseaudio should discover the paired device.18:43
fribminimec, oh i see "discover" by pulseaudio18:43
ElectrumGuyHi all18:44
ElectrumGuyI have done this: "sudo crontab -e"18:44
ElectrumGuyin there, I entered this: * */1 * * * reboot18:44
minimecfrib: These scripts will run @ boot. So you will have to reboot after these changes. Maybe backup the current files.18:44
ElectrumGuyI want the VM to reboot every hour18:44
ElectrumGuyhowever, it is not doing so.18:44
koffeinfriedhofElectrumGuy: use absolute path18:45
minimecfrib: On the other hand a reinstallation of pulseaudio would probably overwrite your changes to default settings.18:45
fribminimec, except I am not even able to connect -- so there is nothing for pulseaudio to discover18:45
ElectrumGuykoffeinfriedhof, what would the absolute path be for ubuntu 16.04/18:45
ElectrumGuykoffeinfriedhof, /sbin/reboot?18:46
minimecfrib: So why would your device show up under 'paired devices'?18:46
fribminimec, i dont know it's strange.  It pairs then immediately ignores the device.  Connection is not possible.18:46
koffeinfriedhofElectrumGuy: yes. and you should use @hourly or 0 * * * * to reboot every hour18:47
fribminimec, it seems like a bluetooth problem18:47
ElectrumGuywhy would what I did not work?18:47
koffeinfriedhofElectrumGuy: which reboot shows you the location18:47
fribin fact, the connect button is always greyed out18:47
Combined2857When are we going to get a fix for this bug ?  http://thehackernews.com/2016/11/hacking-linux-system.html18:47
minimecfrib: Ok. If I remember well you tried two different bluetooth audio devices with the same result, right?18:48
Combined2857I can still get root access to my machine upon bootup by this hack, it needs to be fixed !18:48
fribminimec, what about this? https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=14176018:48
fribminimec, yes i did18:48
koffeinfriedhofElectrumGuy: perhaps it would. have a try :)18:49
OerHeksCombined2857, it is already fixed in (2:1.7.3-2) https://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-security/cve/2016/CVE-2016-4484.html18:50

minimecfrib: What if you tried to connect your mobile phone once over bluetooth?18:52
Combined2857if its released why not push it into updates ?18:52
fribminimec, to my laptop you mean?18:52
minimecfrib: yes18:52
fribminimec, it is paired like other devices18:53
fribconnect button is greyed out for everything18:53
fribbrb 1 sec gona reboot18:53
minimecfrib: BUt can you send/recieve files then. Just to check that bluetooth is working.18:53
fribminimec, this has to be a problem with bluetooth itself, the driver18:56
Combined2857OerHeks: ???18:57
Southern_Gentlemfrib, does you bluetooth have a hardware switch is it on?18:57
minimecfrib: So that would mean that you have to dig some bugs for that intel wifi/bluetooth adapter of your computer.18:58
fribSouthern_Gentlem, its integrated with my wifi chip, it's on, can pair, but unable to connect to devices after pairing18:58
fribit's a intel centrino wireless-n 223018:58
fribalways worked up until recently18:58

designbybeckInstalled the new snap on 16.04 for Inkscape. It seems the aspell/dict aren't there20:26
designbybeckHow do Snaps work along those lines? Does the Inkscape Snap need their own aspell/dict?20:27
wmwmOK so I've installed debian in the past so I have at least some linux knowledge but it's been a while. I'm trying to install ubuntu on my laptop it says success but it booted back into windows20:30
wmwmbasically grub didn't install and this laptop two hard drives and between that and the partitions I'm walking in the dark looking for a light switch20:31
naccdesignbybeck: better asked in #snappy, but a snap carries all its dependencies with it20:31
naccdesignbybeck: internal to the snap20:31
designbybeckand that would include things like dict nacc?20:31
designbybeckI don't know anything about them, I'm just trying to learn20:31
designbybeckI'll check out #snappy as well20:32
wmwmif anyone can help it'd be greatly appreciated if not I'm sure I'll find it out eventually20:32
ioriawmwm, i think you need to boot a livecd and paste  sudo parted -l    .... some could help20:32
ppfdesignbybeck: ya. snaps are selfcontained20:32
naccdesignbybeck: it includes anything hte snap packager said was necessary for the application20:32
wmwmOK I have ubuntu on a flash drive so I can boot into that20:33

MikeSeeI'm trying to understand pipes a little better, when I run `cat /dev/urandom | base64 -i -w0` it goes forever, if I add `|head -c500` it stops at the 500 characters.  What would be the best reading to help understand how the last item in the chain closes the process?20:54
ioriawmwm,  ok, so you booted the ubuntu media in efi mode ?20:54
alkisgMikeSee: you tell head to stop at 500 characters, that's what stops the pipe20:56
=== phil is now known as Guest83771
wmwmI'm not sure what that means. I think that's what windows uses to skip bios checks and I was supposed to install ubuntu with it too?20:56
MikeSeealkisg: I thought that was the case, but I guess I meant; how does head communicate back up the pipe to stop sending data -- or does head simply stop accepting data after that -c value, and that closes it?20:57
kmdude344apparently spotchat servers are being shutdown for maintenance rn20:57
ioriawmwm,  when you install ubuntu in dual boot with windows in efi mode, you have to share the efi/esp partition on your system, /dev/sda120:58
alkisgMikeSee: head stops, so cat no longer has a pipe end to write its output to, it gets a message "pipe closed" from the os, so cat then stops too20:58
ioriawmwm,  you need to 'add an entry' in that partition20:59
MikeSeealkisg: Okay, so it essentially chain-reactions back up the chain with closed pipes, and each one closes in turn.  thanks :)20:59
wmwmOK. I gotta get ready for work I really appreciate your help.21:00
wmwmbut does that mean I need to reinstall?21:00
wmwmalso the ubuntu install was really simple I don't remember it saying anything like that21:00

alkisgwmwm: what's the summary of the issue? you install ubuntu and can't boot into it?21:22
alkisgwmwm: are you on a live cd now?21:22
wmwmtry ubuntu on a USB drive21:23
alkisgWhat's the output of: sudo lsblk --fs; ls /sys/firmware/efi;21:23
alkisgPut that to pastebin...21:23
ioriawmwm,   right now you have only you linux partition mounted in /mnt , you need to mount also /dev/sda121:24
wmwmcan not access sys/firmware/efi no such file or directory21:26
alkisgwmwm: that means that you are not booted in efi mode. What about the first part?21:27
alkisg(an example is that if you boot CDs in non-efi mode, and trying to install in an efi pc, grub won't get properly installed)21:27
skinuxI need help figuring out why my machine lags like shit when I run my headless VM.21:28
alkisgwmwm: so, try this: sudo lsblk --fs | nc termbin.com 999921:28
alkisgThis will show us if your pc is efi or not21:28
wmwmso when you copy in linux I thought you just high listed the text21:28
skinuxI have 4G RAM, 4G SWAP, VM is set to use only 1G RAM. I'm really wondering WTF is wrong here.21:28
k1l_skinux: if the machine is using swap, it will be super slow.21:29
wmwmhttp:// paste.ubuntu.com/2378370921:30
k1l_skinux: and when the cpu doesnt have the proper features for virtualization, that it will be slow, since it will need more cpu power to let the vm run.21:30
alkisgwmwm: yup, it's a gpt disk with an efi partition in it. So the basic problem is the way you made the cd or usb stick, or the way you configured your firmware, and the live cd does not start in efi mode, so grub then can't be installed correctly21:31
alkisgwmwm: you need to boot properly (i.e. to see /sys/firmware/efi) and reinstall ubuntu21:31
skinuxk1l_: how do I find out if the machine fully supports virtualization?21:31
wmwmOK so boot into windows delete all linux partions21:32
wmwmand then what? sorry21:32
k1l_skinux: look at the cpu flags21:32
alkisgwmwm: no, you can delete them from the installer21:32
alkisgwmwm: how did you create your boot medium? is it a stick or a cd?21:32
k1l_skinux: and look at free output if you are using swap21:33
bluekinghow to dig out mac address of an device with known IP ?21:33
=== liohfb is now known as wetting
pavlosskinux, there could be a bios setting or look at /proc/cpuinfo for vmx (intel) or svm (amd) flags21:34
wmwmit's a USB stick I used by using win32diskimager to write the iso to it21:34
skinuxI see I have 822MB free RAM and 1300 free SWAP21:34
skinuxSo, if I boot the VM I'm probably then doing everything using SWAP instead of actual RAM.21:34
alkisgwmwm: use another tool that generates an image that can be booted in uefi mode, this one apparently can't do it21:35
alkisgwmwm: for example, `dd` works fine, i.e. just dumping the ubuntu.iso to the stick21:35
wmwmI'm not sure what that means exactly21:35
yaourthi can anyone tell me if their is away to make the left bar and move it towards the bottom?21:35
alkisgwmwm: do you have another usb stick handy?21:35
wmwmno I don't. this one is USB 3.0 does that matter?21:36

embrikDoes anybody know about clonezilla and drbl in Ubuntu 16.0421:38
wmwmOK. I was reading that windows uses fast boot to skip some bios stuff to make it appear to boot faster. is that part of the reason I'm running into problems?21:38
wmwmbefore this ubuntu install I tried debian an it worked but the grub was installed to the flash drive so I decided to start over with ubuntu.21:39
alkisgwmwm: normally you won't need to change anything in the firmware options. In some cases, you might need to disable fast boot and even secure boot. Your goal is to see the /sys/firmware/efi directory from the live usb stick21:40
alkisgwmwm: I'm guessing that you just selected the wrong tool to create the stick, and rufus will make a fine usb stick for your efi computer.21:41
embrikalkisg: rufus works fine21:41
wmwmOK. I got to work for about 7 hours. I'll be back. thank you very much everyone21:42

VulcanJedix have a 1280x1024 monitor, proprietary driver installed, but max resolution in 4:3 available is 1152x864. Can I override this setting?23:51
nacchimag: rather than do that in the channel, if you're going to query many pkgs, do that in a /query ubottu23:51
FlamesEliteI just need help to get this stupid password to reset23:52
FlamesEliteor just ban this account?23:52
SpeirosFlamesElite You're putting a space before the /23:52
Ben64FlamesElite: join #freenode23:52
k1lFlamesElite: join #freenode and ask there23:52
Ben64this is ubuntu support, not irc support23:52
FlamesEliteokay mofo23:52
himag : what's the issue bro23:52
naccFlamesElite: you were told to ask #freenode, this is not an ubuntu support question23:52
FlamesElitethis is why linux is at 2%23:52
Speiros* rolls eyes at FlamesElite23:52
neecahello, little noob question: how can i write a little script for ubuntu that does 2 simple terminal commands 'cd ~/PATH' and './do.sh' and put it on my desktop? :)23:53
FoeHammeredOkay. So. Thanks, nacc. However it uses its files, it doesn't use them in a way that shows up here, which means... I guess I won't find them by asking what files the program's pulling from.23:53
FoeHammeredBut hey. This was a useful skill to learn.23:53
FoeHammeredThanks, Walex, nacc.23:53
Ben64neeca: why don't you just put do.sh on your desktop?23:53
naccFoeHammered: right, `lsof` just lists files currently open23:54
naccFoeHammered: but it could have spawned other processes, etc.23:55
neecapath dependency in that file (not my thingy... its the inetelliJ IDE)23:55
naccFoeHammered: but, I would think, for most games, what you need is the source, not the files currently open23:55
Ben64neeca: you should just be able to run ~/PATH/do.sh23:56
FoeHammerednacc, any idea why it was suggested? Is it simply the closest thing available? In order for this game to run, it needs to read from game files elsewhere, such as a SoldierName text file that it employs to randomly select soldier names by nationality.23:56
FoeHammeredWhich happens to be the file I wanna edit.23:56
naccBen64: unless the script (dumbly) needs CWD to be ~/PATH/ ?23:57
naccFoeHammered: your question was too vague to know it would or would not be an answer? :)23:57
Ben64would need a better script23:57
naccFoeHammered: so more than likely, for that case, it opens the file and then closes it23:57
naccBen64: agreed :) just guessing based upon context23:57
FoeHammerednacc: Ah. It's hardly the only file, but that'd make the window for finding *any* files it uses for that purpose pretty small.23:58
prometHas anyone noticed recently compiz acting up, i.e. the rendered desktop, seemingly, randomly loosing mouse interaction capability in some windows, and other general weirdness and sluggishness?23:58
Ben64promet: nope23:58
gustavohmsilvaHi guys! Whatsup!!! I'm making a shellscript for my reversible laptop (you know, that one that turn into a tablet), and he is already awesome and up and running (I've made the shell script and an installer script available on github, feel free to use it if you need it for some reason).23:58
prometI don't think I've ever had to run "compiz --replace" in my entire Ubuntu "career", as I have had to in the last two months23:58
prometBen64, thanks, hmmmm, must be gremlins...23:59
neecatbh: i'm not looking for a workaround... wanna know how i do a simple script i can run with double-click that would run terminal command(s) :/ pretty new to linux :)23:59
Kirkland_Signatugay people should be bombed23:59

prometCompiz is usually so transparent, got wonky recently though.23:59
