TheNH813So, can someone tell me why Steam dosen't open? It dies with REALLY ambiguous errors.00:26
k1l_TheNH813: open from terminal and see the exact errors00:27
TheNH813Or sometimes no error. Ubuntu 16.04. Steam from the regular repositories.00:27
TheNH813Will do.00:27
TheNH813Ok, it seems to want to redownload itself, so I'l let it update the00:27
darkishis there a lib or something i neeed to get rid of the libgl error?00:28
TheNH813What Software?00:29
darkishsecond life00:29
k1l_that got a native linux client?00:29
TheNH813Might be built with outdated libraries, or you need to reinstall Mesa/LibGL00:30
darkishah wtf this pc has a windows partition why am i even bothering00:30
TheNH813Try "sudo apt-get reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libglapi-mesa libglu1 libglw1 libgl1"00:32
TheNH813Or install if they aren't installed.00:32
TheNH813k1l_: I'l tell you what Steam says in a couple seconds. Almost done updating.00:33
darkishya they werent isntalled00:34
TheNH813That fix it?00:34
darkishsame errors00:35
TheNH813k1l_: You know what? Steam seems to have fixed itself. Nevermind.00:36
k1l_darkish: what video driver is installed?00:36
darkishhow can i find out?00:36
TheNH813darkish: Let me check which libraries that game requires. I have a feeling it may be using odd versions.00:37
k1l_lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use'00:37
darkishTheNH813: i grabbed all the libs which was a pain in the ass00:37
darkishTheNH813: Kernel driver in use: nvidia00:37
darkishim using a gtx 105000:37
darkishk1l_: ^^00:37
TheNH813darkish: Well, if the libs are the wrong version (they built it using a newer or older version) it dosen't matter if they're installed, it simply won't work. there are workarounds for that tough. Which is why I'm downloaidng a copy of it to inspect it.00:38
gerard72I installed Ubuntu 16.10 and I was trying to install an app that needed me to login to UbuntuOne. It isn't accepting my password. I can login to the website just fine with the same password. This must be a known bug?00:39
TheNH813darkish: I also highly reccommend you install the "additional drivers" from the additional drivers utility. NVIDIA open source drivers are horrid, and cause massive lag.00:39
k1l_darkish: "dpkg -l |grep nvidia | nc termbin.com 9999"00:39
darkishTheNH813: i downloaded the closed source from the nividia site00:39
darkishk1l_: "use netcat"00:40
TheNH813Use the ones fromt he repositories, you it can cause... issues.00:40
TheNH813I experienced that myself.00:40
k1l_darkish: ah ok. maybe that is the issue. the ubuntu driver sould work00:40
k1l_the ubuntu nvidia driver00:40
darkishhm? but i checked the additional drivers and there wasnt anything00:40
TheNH813Really? Hm... maybe there's not a package yet for that card.00:41
TheNH813Then stick with the self extracting package drivers.00:41
darkishthis driver hasnt been screen tearing or anything00:41
darkishhonestly ill just use windows for this but thank you very much for the help00:42
darkishi have spent like 4 hours so far working on this00:42
darkishi give up00:42
k1l_well, you use the nvidia website driver. you cant blame ubuntu for that now. you would not blame windows if the nvidia site driver would make issues on windows.00:43
lucie_hey im no pro and i could need some help please. i want to install something without the terminal so i download the package from the website. when i open the downloadet package i just open the archivemenager. how can i install the zip?00:45
TheNH813darkish: Ah, Second Life is 32 bit. It needs the 32 bit versions of the libs. If you want to give it another try.00:45
k1l_lucie_: you dont install a .zip. open the zip and read the instructions in the readme00:45
darkishTheNH813: ik all the libs are i38600:46
TheNH813Ah, ok.00:46
lucie_good advice thx i try00:47
k1l_lucie_: you should look if ubuntu doesnt already provide that software in the ubuntu repos00:47
k1l_lucie_: "apt search something" to search for "something"00:49

darkwind_Hello! I was wondering if someone could help me in determining if a laptop would run linux? The model in question is the Dell Inspiron 3000 series laptop, specifically the 3179 model (late 2016). I've seen that prior models of the 3000 series with slightly different specs seem to be able to run ubuntu, albeit with some (possibly fixed?) issues. I haven't seen any information on this new model though, and it's a dealbreaker if I cann01:09
darkishtatertots: i mean like i have a win partition so i could just use that for this game01:09

MDTech-us_MANi dunno wtf that is02:25
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: yes....i'd like to ask you a few questions02:29
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: is the symptom consistently reproducible ? meaning are you able to produce the symptom at will02:29
nightshow do i change how often i'm promoted for password ?02:29
nights(for sudo)02:30
tatertotsor does the symptom appear to be intermittent02:30
MDTech-us_MANtatertots: well, every time I reboot and then use the computer all day02:30
MDTech-us_MANwhen I come back its already at hight RAM02:31
tatertotswith only the 1 VM running02:31
barnitoI am going to setup openhab on a pine64 SBC02:31
MDTech-us_MANI do a lot of gpu intensive stuff there02:31
tatertotsor do you have stuff like spotify, skype, chrome/firefox running on the host also02:31
MDTech-us_MANwell, yea chrome02:32
MDTech-us_MANwith a lot of tabs02:32
MDTech-us_MANbut I kill chrome tabs once they suck up too much ram02:32
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: does the symptom occur if you never power on the vm?02:32
MDTech-us_MANI don't know.02:33
MDTech-us_MANI always power on the vm02:33
tatertotsthat's the big $ question02:33
MDTech-us_MANI use it for all my work and stuff02:33
MDTech-us_MANsince its not line adobe can actually port their tools to linux :(02:34
tatertotshmmm so it's unknown if this symptom will occur without the VM02:34
hydrajumpafter adding a kernel module to initrd.lz do I need to do anything else for the module to be loaded?02:34
tatertotsthat mystery needs revealed02:34
tatertotsto isolate the symptom to the host02:35
MDTech-us_MANoh wait!02:35
MDTech-us_MANI did have the vm down for a few days02:35
MDTech-us_MANI didn't have any stuff to do so it was down for a few days02:36
MDTech-us_MANand I don't remember restarting then02:36
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: schedule a maintenance window of time....reveal the mystery if the symptom occurs without the VM,02:36
MDTech-us_MANI was just watching movies on chrome all day02:36
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: let me know the results of the analysis02:36
MDTech-us_MANand no problems02:37
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: let's just assume for right now....until you schedule a maintenance window to perform the analysis...let's assume the symptom NEVER occurs without the VM02:38
tatertotsi hate assuming02:39

JakethepythonE: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)02:39
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: that would suggests that the symptom is induced after initialization of the VM02:40
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: isolating the symptom to starting the vm02:40
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: now if we take this stance02:41
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: we must closely examine why powering on this VM produces negative symptoms for your host02:42
aminI want to post a video to instagram, but for whatever reason it takes forever to upload. It may be because of video format or some errors in it. I want to rerender it. Do you suggest ffmpeg? How can I rerender the video into a standard format without any change to the video, itself?02:42

tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: ok02:48
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: so you need to definitively determine if the symptom occurs without powering on this VM....right now we just assumed the symptom NEVER occurs without the VM but that need to be confirmed and validated as a consistently true statement02:49
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: it looks to be very possible that it would be found to be true...but i hate to assume ya know02:50
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: i can see some things that would for sure cause that type of circumstance02:51
MDTech-us_MANits just that I got a lot of work I need to do on the windows vm and I can't really not use it for a day...02:51
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: with the way your vm is configured and your host is configured including but not limited to the info in the logs...i'm not surprised at all you have that symptom02:52

KingsQuesti don't love Apple.  its not gnu02:57
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: can't really go into too much detail until you perform the analysis to definitively state with %100 certainty that the symptom never occurs without the VM02:57
tatertotsMDTech-us_MAN: once you make that statement....your vm will have to defend it self against me02:58

MDTech-us_MANtatertots: ...03:23
vinzusamaI'm trying to install Ubuntu 16.10 on a new PC with a W10 preinstalled, the problem is if I deactivate Secure Boot mode I can install Ubuntu but Windows won't boot anymore, and if I activate Secure Boot mode, I can run the Ubuntu installer but it only recognize my USB stick, but not my SSD...03:23

lotuspsychjejayjo: alot of machines will be ubuntu installable04:50
lotuspsychjejayjo: what i would suggest is choosing for a laptop with powerfull ssd04:51
jayjoI do data analysis on my machine so high-end is necessary. Is there a maintained official list or a well-regarded guide to some good options?04:51
lotuspsychjejayjo: there are lists of supported hardware indeed04:52
lotuspsychjejayjo: but i would reccomend to know yourself first what kind of hardware you need?04:52
lotuspsychjejayjo: if you choose a model with enough ram/ high cpu/ strong ssd im sure you will hit same powers as the mac04:54
lotuspsychjejayjo: there are high end laptops from system76 and dell also, but in my opinion too expensive04:55
jayjoIs the puri.sm laptop recommended?04:55
lotuspsychjejayjo: lemme look that up04:56
lotuspsychjejayjo: it runs pureOs, as we are in #ubuntu here we strongly reccomend ubuntu as Os04:57

liuxghow can I install a debian package from non-ubuntu archive into my snap?06:20
HiddenDjinngot a dumb question, did apt replace apt-get as recommended in trusty or xenial? or did it go as far back as precise?06:21
amicrawler2017force pkg06:21

Ben64HiddenDjinn: xenial probably06:21
HiddenDjinnBen64: working on updating a wiki, that's why i ask06:21
Ben64i know it exists in trusty06:22
HiddenDjinnso, as of april, i can delete any references to apt-get and replace with apt and be good to go06:22
liuxgBen64, so I cannot package a debian package not from ubuntu archive?06:23
HiddenDjinnliuxg: you can, but it isn't necessarily a good idea06:23
Ben64it's almost always a terrible idea06:23
amicrawler2017is it like alien convert rpm to deb06:24

Bashing-omCrazyTux: If the .iso is linux, and you are on 'buntu then the "best" tool to write the .iso to USB is 'dd' .06:47
CrazyTuxBashing-om, if the iso is of Windows and I am on Ubuntu, then?06:47
s-corpCrazyTux: it should detect USB and it does support windows isos and many more06:48
CrazyTuxs-corp, ok. Will try that. Thanks a lot for helping me in that.06:48
s-corpCrazyTux: no problem good luck06:49
Bashing-omCrazyTux: Windows I can not say for sure . but I do not think a Windows' .iso is of the hyvrud nature . no can 'dd' it . maybe consider rufus ?06:49

tatertotscuddle: soundcloud....without a web browser? hmm that means you probably want to find out of they make installable software and that you meet the minimum system requirements for that installable software, or that the vendor, soundcloud supplies some usage information aka documentation on it's website07:36

countingdaisiesI saw an article on something once and wanted to ask about the concept on here. Can a chroot environment be used to control what commands a user can/cannot issue to the system?08:16
ducassecountingdaisies: yes, you can build a chroot that contains only the program(s) the user is allowed to run08:17
Bray90820ducasse: couldn't run fsck because there wasn't a valid ext partition08:18
countingdaisiesducasse: Oh, that doesn't seem like the way I thought it worked (and may not work for my use case then)08:18
ducasseBray90820: ouch. in that case you can try testdisk to see if it can recover the partition table, other than that it's time to check the disk thoroughly and do a reinstall :-(08:19
countingdaisiesducasse: So I have to install everything I want them to be able to use (not an "access" issue where they use the regular installed programs)?08:19
ducassecountingdaisies: exactly.08:19
Bray90820I mean a reinstall wouldn't be the worst thing i have all the data backed up08:20
Bray90820It would just be hours and hours of time08:20
countingdaisiesducasse: back to sq108:20
countingdaisiesI want a way to control commands and how (at least some of them) are used.08:21

countingdaisiescould selinux (for example) stop me from creating a file with touch if it contains whitespace in the name? Will it work for that?08:22
ducassecountingdaisies: no idea08:22

countingdaisieswhat about using containers I wonder? I don't know much about how it works, but what about Docker containers to isolate an application layer and a user environment layer (or something like that)?08:24

Bashing-omBray90820: Maybe . remap the boot sector ? see : http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/114429/short-read-while-trying-to-open-partition08:25
ducassecountingdaisies: you still need to install what you want to be available inside the container08:25
countingdaisiesducasse: Oh, yeah. I think I read somewhere you can isolate / compartmentalize different areas of your system (like the application layer) - off by itself08:27
ducassecountingdaisies: apparmor is the closest thing i can think of to what you're asking for08:28
countingdaisiesducasse: cool08:29

baakoZen, yes i wanted to see if the issue was because i was trying to do ssl on an already set up WP site10:41
Zenbaako: like I said, the issue was that you were serving insecure content on a secure page, your certificate was valid otherwise10:41
tn5421|phoneLights proper on router10:41
tatertotstn5421|phone: good10:42
tn5421|phoneTatertots: it's connected but the data transfer light on my pc is not lighting at all10:42
drjami am trying to migrate myself (and if this works, my small office) from microsoft to linux. the repladement must also do GAMES. ..... does anyone have experience with: ATI RX 380 8GB card, and also Fan speed control.... and Corsair H110i water cooling control?10:43
drjamthats a bit10:43
tn5421|phoneUnfortunately only one light on router for each Ethernet for some reason10:43
tatertotstn5421|phone: do you own a usb flash drive, to move information from the system and transport it back to windows10 where you have internet?10:43
tn5421|phoneI do10:43
Zendrjam: yes, maybe, no respectively.10:44
tatertotstn5421|phone: plug it in make sure it's accessible10:44
drjamlol cool Zen10:44
drjamits a big ask, and a big deep end i may end up having to suck the teet of ms after all10:44
Zendrjam: one thing at a time, for the graphics card you'll need the xf86-video-amdgpu drivers at the very least10:44
eXpl0it3rI'm running into an issue with etckeeper while trying to upgrade: https://paste.ubuntu.com/23809791/10:45
tatertotstn5421|phone: usb flash drive ready?10:45
ppfeXpl0it3r: looks like you've thoroughly messed up your PATH10:45
eXpl0it3rppf: I figured, however it's working fine when using the terminal, but it's messed up when the scripts run10:46
drjamok thanks zen. ive downloaded them i think, well, something from the official AMD ati website, had missing dependancies, i ll try again in a minute10:47
drjamand manually add the dependancies10:47
Zendrjam: welp, I should explain this carefully10:47
Zenxf86-video-amdgpu is an open source driver for your graphics card, its generally included in the distros repositories10:48
tn5421|phoneUbuntu doesn't want to detect my jump drive10:48
Zendrjam: sounds like you downloaded the proprietary driver from AMD, I'm assuming some version of catalyst/fglrx which is kind of depriciated (but can still work)10:48
eXpl0it3rppf: /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games10:49
Zenor you know.. leave10:49
tatertotstn5421|phone: do you own any other removable media to try?10:50
ssc_Hello, I have two filesystems, /dev/root that is mounted on / and /dev/sdc that is mounted on /opt10:50
ssc_And I would like to merge them into 1 without loosing any data, how can I do that?10:50
Zenssc_: you can't merge 2 partitions, you have to remove one and extend the other to use the freed space10:52
Zenwhich means backing up the data to somewhere else while you do it10:52
=== brisket is now known as deadbrisket
ssc_Zen: How can I do without loosing data?10:53
eXpl0it3rhmm okay, manually typing export PATH seems to work10:53
ssc_Any where I could read about it please?10:54
eXpl0it3rSo why is PATH not "exported" by default?10:54
Zen.. back up your files to somewhere not on that PC10:54
ssc_Zen: Which files? :O10:54
ZenThe ones in /opt10:54
=== deadbrisket is now known as tenderizedbriske
ZenUnless your / has enough space for them to store temporarily10:54
=== tenderizedbriske is now known as tenderbrisket
ssc_'/'\ has only 20G while /opt has 162 G that's why I want to merge10:55
ssc_'/' has only 20G while /opt has 162 G that's why I want to merge10:55
ZenThen you need a disk with 162GB of free space to copy the data too10:56
ZenYou can't merge'10:56
Zen.. You can't "merge" 2 partitions10:56
ssc_Yes I understand that Zen10:56
ssc_But /opt has only 14G data in it right now10:56
ZenOk, so you need a disk with 15GB of space to copy the data from /opt to temporarily10:57
ssc_Is it possible to create another partition of 20G, put the data in there, remove /dev/sdc and resize /dev/root or vice versa and then place data?10:57
k1lssc_: you can resize partitions from the system you run. you need to boot a live system for that10:58
ZenI guess you can attempt to shrink the partition that /opt is on, but its dangerous and may result in data loss :)10:58
ssc_k1l: I have no option, it is hosted with linode and being used as a server10:58
k1lssc_: some hosters offer recoveries, where you can manage the partitions from10:59
ssc_k1l: Yeah just started looking at that10:59
tatertotstn5421|phone: ?11:00
ssc_https://postimg.org/image/7u3rdqxg1/ Can not see /dev/root11:02
k1lssc_: maybe you better ask the linode guys how to solve that issue11:03
Zenssc_: /dev/sda is probably /11:11
Zenyou'll find that /dev/root is just a symlink to the device that is actually the root FS11:11
ssc_Zen: How do I make sure if it's symlink?11:13
Zenls -la /dev11:13
Zene.g. mine looks like: lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root           4 Nov 21 13:36 root -> sda211:14
ZenThe l in the first bit means its a link, you can also tell because of the -> too11:14
ssc_Yeah but there is nothing like that in there11:15
ssc_sda,sdb and sdc are not symlinks at all11:15
Zenssc_: yes, I know that, but /dev/root is11:15
ssc_There is nothing like root inside /dev :O11:15
Zenpastebin the output of: ls -la /dev11:16
ssc_Zen: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23809975/11:17
Zenok, where did you get the idea that /dev/root is even a thing, because its not in there at all11:18
Zenalternatively, pastebing the output of: lsblk11:19
k1lssc_: as i already suggested: you might want to talk to the linode support because of that special linode setup11:20
ssc_By df -h11:20
yeeveI'm using rsyslog and imfile for apache logs, does anyone know how to stop the logs also being added to the main syslog file? ( usually there is the & stop command but I'm not sure if it will work in this case)11:20
ssc_Zen: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23809985/11:21
ssc_k1l: Even special doesn't make magical so there must be something I am missing11:21
Zenssc_: your '/' is /dev/sda : sda    8:0    0  19.5G  0 disk /11:21
ssc_Okay so I want to get all the quota in /dev/sdc in to /dev/sda and remove /dev/sdc11:23
TuxCrazywhat is the difference between installing Xubuntu and installing Ubuntu and then intalling Xfce?11:23
yeeveTuxCrazy, if you want XFCE I recommend installing xubuntu, the differences can be squashed but I prefer a clean base, if you install ubuntu and move to xfce you will have old ubuntu-desktop stuff hanging around and possible duplicated apps and stuff.11:25
TuxCrazyok. That is what I wanted to know.11:25
akikssc_: if you don't want to talk to linode support, one quite easy solution is to mount /dev/sdc to somewhere in your root file system11:26
akikssc_: some directory that you know will grow big11:26
TuxCrazyDo we get the same packages with same versions when we update in 16.04.1 and 16.10?11:27
Zenakik: sounds like his / is full and wants to use space from sdc instead, tbh I doubt this will work anyway because it looks like they are virtual disks11:27
k1lTuxCrazy: no. 16.10 got a different state of packages.11:27
k1lTuxCrazy: but keep in mind, that on 16.10 you need to upgrade to the next ubuntu version every 6 months. its not a LTS11:27
re-lhello every11:27
TuxCrazyk1l, different means what?11:27
k1lTuxCrazy: newer version in most cases11:28
TuxCrazyok. But, do we usually encounter any problems in upgrading in case of 16.10 or will it be easy and smooth?11:28
TuxCrazyand is 16.10 as stable as 16.04?11:29
ruin2itiveHello there11:29
k1lTuxCrazy: its smooths since the original ubuntu packages get automated testing for the upgrade. but that doesnt count for 3rd party apps and repos (like PPAs)11:29
k1lTuxCrazy: both are stable. they dont change once released.11:29
ruin2itiveCould anyone help me install proper drivers?11:30
TuxCrazythen, what exactly is the purpose of having two versions?11:30
k1lTuxCrazy: a lot of people dont want to upgrade the version. so 16.04 is LTS and gets support for 5 years. so people can move directly to 18.04 then11:31
varazirHmm, I created a new account on my 16.04 box used "adduser", after loging in to that account I run ssh-keygen. No can't I connect to my server using keys I have stored in authorized_keys on another account11:34

fubHi. Can someone recommend a good/strong wifi usb stick to run with ubuntu?11:57
fubIt's a desktop machine I want to connect to my network11:57
varazirmuch easier to understand, but I guess I should learn number codes as well12:00
BluesKajHi folks12:04
hateballfub: if it's a desktop, why not a full card? also ##hardware might be better12:04
fubhateball: whats the benefit of a card?12:05
hateballfub: fwiw, I use a intel 7265 card in my desktop12:05
hateballfub: that you can something proper, like intel, and not something far beyond terrible that uses realtek12:05
fubso better performance?12:06
hateballfub: among other things yes. as you'll have more or better antennas connected to a card12:06
k1lfub: pci cards got better radio reception due to having real antennas12:08
fubk1l: something like this? https://www.amazon.de/TP-Link-TL-WN851ND-WLAN-Adapter-Mbit/dp/B0019EMF2M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484568538&sr=8-1&keywords=wlan+pci12:09
ZenSome even have antenas that you can place where you like12:09
fuboh, only 2.4ghz12:09
k1lfub: support for that should be out of the box.12:09
fubwhere can I check for the support?12:10
fubCurrently looking at the TP-Link TL-WDN4800 N900 (because of 5ghz)12:10
fubis WOL working with this?12:11
JP____Currently looking @ my screen12:11
fubI guess not12:11
FManwhy is my /bin/sh a link to /bin/dash?12:11
k1lfub: the n900 should be ootb, too12:11
k1lFMan: that is the standard on ubuntu and debian. scripts are dash. user terminals are bash12:12
k1lfub: i do look at https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/WLAN/Karten/ since i understand german12:12
fubah, great12:14
FManok, where do I find the source code? such as the somewhat non-standard strcasecmp function - where is it implemented on Ubuntu?12:15
fubk1l: and WOL?12:15
fubis that possible?12:15
Rabbitnightmare_fub: I use realtek and intel cards only12:15
k1lfub: i dont know. i guess the mainboard needs support too. i dont use WoL12:16

JP____I know a Guillaume in real life, hope your him :p12:17
guillaume___i'm running Ubuntu on a Laptop with Nvidia + intel graphics and i experience a lot of tearing.

(JP, no sorry but i'm a nice Guillaume as al12:18

ristduring a liveusb boot, if i access my hard disk and get all the files from there and then place them on my liveusb, will installing the liveusb distro get rid of these files in some way? will they be moved to the hard disk after the installation is completed?14:23
iceyunknowed: you should just ask your question; if somebody knows the answer, they will respond :)14:23
ristnote that i will get many the files from the hard disk to the liveusb and after installation, i will format the hard disk for the new distro14:24
ristwill the files that i had saved before the installation and the formatting of the hard disk stay with me?14:24
OerHeksrist, files saved on the persistent part of your live usb will be there, but not copied to your fresh install, you need to do that manually14:25
ristOerHeks: how will it be done manually14:25
OerHeksrist, like the way you saved them to your usb?14:26
srulirist: make sure your usb has persistancy configured, else you will loose them14:26
OerHeksdrag and drop or cp /from/files /to/target14:26

ristOerHeks, please tell me if i have properly understood the matter: i'll first copy the files from the hard disk to the liveusb's /home/test/Desktop, and after the installation is done, i'll move these files somewhere else?14:28
ppfhm, remind me quickly; when i'm host-jumping with ssh, is there a way to use identity files from each individual hop instead of from the source?14:28
ristwill the files on the Desktop disappear after the installation? if they don't disappear, then i have no need to copy anything manually?14:28
=== scottt is now known as Guest30851
OerHeksrist, the ubuntu usb-creator has that option, to make a persistent space of the remaining bytes.14:29
OerHeksit is not standard, iirc14:29
ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent14:29
srulirist: safest way would be to copy it to another usb device14:30
OerHekssruli +114:30
ristsruli: the problem is that i have only one usb device. my hard drive is 500GB, isn't there a way to make a partition and put all the backup files there, and after installation, i can get just the files from the partition?14:30
ristin this way, i'll copy nothing from the hard disk to the liveusb prior to installation, and only do it after installation14:31
srulirist: paste output of lsblk to pate.ubuntu.com or "lsblk | nc termbin.com 9999"14:31
ristactually not the liveusb, since by then the distro will be installed14:31
ristsruli, http://paste.ubuntu.com/23810624/14:32
unknowedproblem: ypwhich can't establish communicattion with ypbind14:32
unknoweda NIS configuration problem i suppose; i follow the guide offer in: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNISHowTo14:34
srulirist: you dont really have spare to make additional partition, you can shrink the current one but that comes with a warning "backup your data first"14:35
srulirist: approx how much space do you need to backup your files?14:35
ristsruli, probably 120gb14:35
ristsruli: i really need to shift this amount of data from my current distro to the one i'll install through the liveusb14:36
ristis there any safe way to do this14:36
srulirist: i was thinking you can use the swap space but that wont be enough... how did you create the liveusb?14:37
ristsruli: through unetbootin14:37
srulirist: is it eufi boot?14:38
ristwhat do you mean by that?14:38
srulirist: you have 2 options, 1. is make 2 partitions on your usb a small one for live cd and large one ext4 for your backup, see if unetbootin allows to select partitition for liveusb, second option is to shrink your current ext4 however you stand the risk of loosing data by doing o14:40
ristthe USB is like 16gb14:41
srulirist: so where did you plan on copying your files too?14:42
srulirist: your current install is on lvm?14:43
risti guess there's no safe option left but to buy four 32gb usb's14:45
srulirist: you can get a 128gb, or 2x64...  maybe there is another way ..."sudo lvdisplay | nc termbin.com 9999"14:46

mr_yogurttatertots: i'm pretty sure i did that the one time i intentionally toggled prime17:53
tatertotsmr_yogurt: anytime you toggle...log out of the system and log back in17:53
mr_yogurttatertots: rebooted, and still messed up17:54
tatertotsmr_yogurt: is xerama and stuff still not showing/17:54
mr_yogurttatertots: and still no xinerama17:54
mr_yogurttatertots: still gone17:54
tatertotsmr_yogurt: on the xserver display config tab area where it shows the two monitors17:56
tatertotsmr_yogurt: what is your "configuration" set to?17:57
tatertotsmr_yogurt: its a drop down menu thing17:57
mr_yogurttatertots: X screen 0. there's no other options17:57
mr_yogurtother than 'disabled'17:57
tatertotsmr_yogurt: oh i see...it's not the settings...it's the configuration you are using with that old arse monitor17:58
tatertotsmr_yogurt: you have no way of getting both monitors on the nvid chip at the same time because you don't have a dp/hdmi > Vga dongle correct?17:59
mr_yogurttatertots: sadly, yes17:59
neeneeif you have the two ports, you may need to change a setting in your bios to allow both to be active18:00
tatertotsmr_yogurt: you could put both on the intel.....but that kinda negates having a nice gtx 1xxx series18:00
neeneeNot available in all BIOSes and I can not name the exact setting18:00
mr_yogurtneenee: both monitors work fine on my windows install on the same machine with the same setup18:01
neeneeThat rules out BIOS, I agree18:01
tatertotsmr_yogurt: checking your BIOS is also a good idea although if both gpu's weren't enabled in bios it would cause a nvidia-prime failure...and your prime switches between intel and nvidia like it's designed to18:01
tatertotsmr_yogurt: the other thing that's working against you is your monitors do NOT support the same native resolutions18:02

srulii added a script ../dispatcher.d/90constatus to touch a file when connection goes up or down but NM does not execute it, script http://pastebin.com/s7WAq11a why not?18:03
tatertotsmr_yogurt: if you look at my xrandr http://termbin.com/htw8 and compare it to yours....you see both my screen share the same resolution of full 1080HD....yours is catywhompus18:04
mr_yogurttatertots: catywhompus?18:04
tatertotsmr_yogurt: sorry for the slang word18:04
tatertotsmr_yogurt: sorry for the slang word....yours is.....uh.....let's call it "uneven"18:05
tatertotsmr_yogurt: for example if you draw two rectangles representing both monitors18:05
mr_yogurttatertots: i like using one screen for internet and the other for code or whatever. if you're not using them for games it doesn't really matter too much if they're uneven18:05
tatertotsmr_yogurt: one is 1280x1024   the other is 1920x1080   now stick them side by side18:06
tatertotsmr_yogurt: now consider they are both apart of screen#018:07
mr_yogurttatertots: but how do we make them not both part of screen#0?18:07
tatertotsmr_yogurt: VGA-1-1 connected 1280x1024+0+56 338mm x 270mm AND   HDMI-0 connected primary 1920x1080+1280+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 521mm x 293mm18:08
tatertotsthats why your mouse is wonky18:08
tatertotsmr_yogurt: they have to be connected to the same gpu at the same time18:09
tarjoHello everybody. Can anyone experienced installations of ubuntu where, although the OS is very fast, the opening of applications is very slow?18:09
mr_yogurttatertots: so there is no other way to fix it other than getting an hdmi or dvi to vga adapter?18:10
tatertotsmr_yogurt: means you need a DVI>VGA dongle or a DP>vga dongle....or a newer monitor18:10
tatertotsmr_yogurt: remember prime only let's you pick one OR the other NEVER both18:11
mr_yogurttatertots: windows does not have a problem with running on both. is it just that ubuntu doesn't support it?18:11
tatertotsmr_yogurt: doesn't surprise me18:12
mr_yogurttatertots: well, thanks for the help. i'll see if i can find another monitor since this one needs replacing anyway.18:13
tatertotsmr_yogurt: i've seen wlan adapters that support hotspot/AP mode in windows totally not support AP/hotspot mode with their linux firmware...same wlan chip we're talking about here18:13
tatertotsmr_yogurt: and just an example to show that sometimes a chips windows firmware is NOT = to its linux firmware or vissa versa18:14

kernellohello everyone, my network manager has already the saved password of a network, but it didnt connect to it in my multiple trials, and asked me to enter password again, after which it connected to it. the only thing that comes to mind is that the drive has just been connected to this new machine. could this be the reason why the network didnt auto-connect?20:49

RFlemingioria: I meant software-properties-common20:50
ioriaRFleming, apt-cache depends software-properties-common20:50

RFlemingmcphail: that's what I have been doing.  I'm just lazy, wanted to know if there was a meta that might cover most of my bases :)20:52

neeneedoc|work: hm. okay - is it a current setup / I assume running ubuntu, a recent release?21:29
doc|workneenee: current, using xubuntu21:29
heathenwolfeRoey: well then it's not dns. Hanging to me sounds like you're hitting a firewall of something. I only get hangs atm when the destination or somewhere in between is dropping packets21:29
doc|workneenee: #xubuntu suggsted I ask here21:29
Roeyheathenwolfe: ahhhh21:29
Roeyheathenwolfe: lemme turn off my firewall.21:29
heathenwolfeRoey: did you drop outbound connections on the fw?21:30
neeneedoc|work: oh that's fine, I don't mind, the base is the same.21:30
* doc|work nods21:30
neeneedoc|work: does xrandr show you the information of the connected display?21:32
neeneedoc|work: should show you what kind of a screen / resolution is currently connected / active21:32
doc|workneenee: yes, oddly though it has at times said it's connected to a screen while the display utility in xubuntu shows it as disconnected21:32
neeneeis the display off consistently / always? or does it periodically turn on?21:33
doc|workneenee: it stays off once that shows as far as I'm aware, but sometimes boots up fine21:34
neeneecan't be a powersave feature as it should show something during boot at least, unless you have an incorrect/unsupported framebuffer setting21:34
doc|workon Friday it did disconnect during the day, no idea why21:34
doc|workbut just once21:34
doc|workneenee: not sure about booting21:35
neeneehave you tried a second screen / alternative cable?21:35
doc|workneenee: that's the plan, switching to DP21:35
neeneethe cable would be easiest to have switched, do you have any hands on site?21:35
doc|workbut still want to figure out a way to debug21:35
doc|workneenee: working on that21:35
neeneetrue, otherwise you may run into the same issue without an alternative to switch to21:35
doc|workright now I'm just kind of stuck at xrandr and no other clue how to debug21:35
Ben64doc|work: well what does xrandr say21:36
neeneewhat kind of graphics driver / chip? custom xorg.conf or none/auto?21:37
neeneeyou could pastebin a log indeed21:37
neeneepasting here would be a bit much21:37
neenee(do people still use pastebin?)21:37
doc|workBen64: it's all working right now and I don't want to go breaking it, but the general gist is xrandr shows the screen as correct as far as I can tell and connected. However if I look at xubuntu's display utility it sometimes (not always) shows it as connected even if it's not.21:38
doc|workneenee: intel iris 540 in an intel nuc. No custom.xorg by us. Just the standard setup.21:38
neeneeperhaps xubuntus display utility tries to force settings which are incompatible - I am not familiar with the specific tool however21:39
doc|workneenee: even then, xrandr is showing it as connected. The xubuntu utility is usually but not always more accurate.21:39
zuiss1hi, if a computer has windows on it and i created space for ubuntu, how would i choose to have ubuntu installed with encryption? i only see an option to either use the whole disk and encrypt, or a "manual" option if i just want to encrypt in the free space i created21:40
doc|worksorry, I probably could have phrased that better earlier21:40
zuiss1but i'm too novice to know how to do it manually21:40
neeneedoc|work: the display goes blank/black at which time xrandr still shows connected?21:40
doc|workneenee: right21:41
=== KingsQuest is now known as ubutosid9
neeneehm. you could try to re-enable the screen with xrandr / perhaps with a cron job every x minutes - doesn't solve the underlying issue though21:43
neeneeeg. xrandr --addmode HDMI1 1920x1080 / xrandr --output HDMI --mode 1920x108021:44
doc|workyeah, that could be a fallback actually21:44
doc|workis a bit odd all the same!21:44
neeneewell, I have to be off for now, busy work day tomorrow again. Good luck and cya around perhaps, I will be around as well, can run this in the background.21:45
doc|workneenee: great, thanks. Will see if it happens again in the morning21:45

* SebthreeBQM10HD is meant to be deliving a talk this Thursday to such people about something hmm23:09
SebthreeBQM10HDzo  so did a wireless driver come up in additional drivers :) ?23:10
Amm0ninra, you should use "sync" too, if it's a removal device, to write all data from cache before you use the udisks command23:11
st3fannhey, Im looking to delete the screen temp file /dev/pts/1, but for some reason it does not let me.. I am attempting to do it as root so I dont know why this would be happening23:11
st3fannand this is the output for lsattr -d lsattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device While reading flags on .23:12
zoOk, so I'm finally there.. I have a broadcom wireless thingie... it says that it is using an alternative driver and it is marked as using broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver source from bcmwl-kernel-source (proprietary)23:13
SebthreeBQM10HDzo ok good23:13
SebthreeBQM10HDzo  you need to use the propritary driver23:13
zoyaaaaay :)23:13
SebthreeBQM10HDwhih is what tht is23:14
SebthreeBQM10HDyou have to enable it, but lso download it23:14
zook, so I do that? :)23:14
SebthreeBQM10HDso yeah got a ethernet cable to get it online for that ?23:14
SebthreeBQM10HDyep connect that23:14
SebthreeBQM10HDdownload intall it enable it23:14
SebthreeBQM10HDget on your wireless, an should be ok23:14
zuiss1does "guided - use entire disk and set up encrypted lvm" in the ubuntu installer mean use it will wipe out the windows install, or does it mean it will use the partition only,23:15
st3fannwipe everything zuiss123:15
SebthreeBQM10HDand  your wireless should have a password and some kind of encryption, not this open wireless stuff zo23:15
SebthreeBQM10HDzuiss1, the default automatic partiting does not seem to do encryption or lvm23:15
inraAmm0n, thank you, added to my notes! :)23:16
SebthreeBQM10HDand it would use some free space from windows,  or just pariton space i think23:16
st3fannanyone? Ive done some reading and it looks like the file is a symlink, I really don't know what to do with it, and I cannot run screen without removing the file :/23:16
zuiss1so what should i do if i want encryption, but am on a dual boot system where i don't want to wipe out windows?23:16
zuiss1the installer only has a use full disk option for encryption23:16
SebthreeBQM10HDzuiss1, I am not sure if I hve used automatic in ubunu actsaully, but it seems you should do a  custom install and be more in control yourself23:17
SebthreeBQM10HDzuiss1, you can encrypt home regardless I think23:17
SebthreeBQM10HDbut sure / won't be I guess23:17
zuiss1SebthreeBQM10HD: do you know how to set up encryption if i select "manual"23:17
SebthreeBQM10HDzuiss1, advanced partining optons maybe ?23:17
SebthreeBQM10HDzo  so you get it online on the wireless?23:18
zoSeb, can you make it a bit easier for me? A terminal code or link please?23:18
inrareturning to my original problem, i managed to bring all folders back under my original home folder, but now the other home folder that I copied under desktop is still there, and has no content. could it be why I still cannot click on the file manager?23:18
SebthreeBQM10HDzo no additional drivers is where you go to enable the driver23:19
SebthreeBQM10HDand tht's the easy way23:19
SebthreeBQM10HDzo may b some command way, but thats not   going to be as easy23:19
inraor cannot open any most applications?23:19
SebthreeBQM10HDzo ethernet conect it23:19
SebthreeBQM10HDzo then enable download actiavte the driver whatever in addiontal drivers, put password in so it can do that, and that should do it23:20
Amm0ninra, create a new user and login, then diff the folderstucture/permissions, or just use the new user and copy your files23:22
zook, so I think I'm a bit lost... I only have a do not use this device option and can't see any way to activate it beside doing the "turn on and off" thing :P23:23
zomaybe leave it for someone else to do it live?23:23
SebthreeBQM10HDzo no show me a screenshot of additional drivers?23:24
ubottuScreenshots can be made with the [PrtScr] button. Want to show us a screenshot of your problem? Upload an image to http://imgur.com/ and link the created page here.23:24
zook, just a sec23:24
zook, how do I get them to you? upload somewhere and give you a link?23:25
Amm0ninra, did you use sudo with the mv?23:28
zuiss1so i created a 500 MB /boot partition, and then a large partition which i selected "physical volume for encryption" so now i have these 2 partitions. but the installer won't let me click "install" to proceed23:28
zuiss1anyone know what i need to do23:28
zohere it is23:28

mozart92@Viligent Premise: I use a vpn (with openvpn-networkmanager) I'd like to create an ssl tunnel in order to use the vpn only with the web browser, in order to let the pc and its processes (like steam) use all my bandwith with the normal ethernet connection. Is this possible?23:47
stanford_AII'm looking for the most badass linux/robotics programmer. To build an indoor drone with deep learning. Do you know a good one here?23:48

mozart92Viligent Basically I want to apply my vpn only to the browser.23:52
Vilegentwell possible most likely easy no23:53
