nmideGrorco: might be able to, can you provide more details about what you are trying to achieve? (example: windows to windows, linux to linux, windows to linux, etc...)00:41
sprashdo you mean how to use "rdesktop"?00:42
nmideis the reason you are using ssh because you need to create a tunnel for the connection00:42

nmidehey ubuntu folks if I have a fairly major (to me) issue that came up, and I want to determine how to provide information to report a bug, where is a good place to start?00:46
nmideessentially the 4.13 kernels that were automatically installed, all break the x86_64 kvm kernel module in some way00:46
Ben64break how00:47
nmidei had to go to the mainline page and manually download/install 4.8 kernel to get my VM running again00:47
Ben644.8? what os are you running00:47
nmidewell i'm not 100% sure but essentially the x86_64 dir is completely missing from kernel/arch in /lib/modules00:47
Bashing-om!bug | nmide00:47
ubottunmide: If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please report it using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.00:48
nmideok lsb_release says 17.10 "artful"00:48
Ben6417.10 _only_ has 4.13 kernel. you're doing it wrong by installing 4.800:49
nmidei agree, but this box hosts a VM for a 24/7 web game with hundreds of players00:49
nmidei need KVM to work00:49
nmide(it does now, with 4.8)00:49
Ben64probably should be on LTS then, but you're still doing it horribly wrong00:49
nmidethis is a classic scenario of a machine that's up for a long time, several newer kernels get installed without a reboot - and then when you reboot things brealk00:49
Ben64but 17.10 only has 4.13, it never had anything else00:50
simple_usercould you help me please...00:50
Ben64simple_user: not until you ask a question00:50
nmideok, then unfortunately i can't provide which precise update led to the issue00:50
nmidethat's too bad00:50
Ben64so you decided to break things more, cool00:50
nmidei mean - this machine was probably dist-upgraded at some point, or do-release-upgrade, so there could have been older kernels on the system00:50
nmideagain, i just needed it to work, it does now00:51
simple_userI need to fix my boot;  If I use commands: set root, linux /vmlinuz, initrd, boot00:51
Ben64if that's what you want, go for it00:51
Ben64it's not a bug though00:51
nmideno, what i want is to provide the info that anyone may need to prevent it from happening to other people00:51
simple_userI always boot in grub console and after that I can boot my linux00:51
simple_userHow can I fix it?00:52
thebardianAnybody know why using copy/paste in a libvirt guest would crash xorg in the guest? (this only happens when apparmor is enabled on the host)00:53
thebardian 00:53
nmideare you a developer? or just a helpful user here ben64? I want you to carefully think about how you responded to me here - i'm not looking to criticize anyone...if we boil things down, i'm saying "hey guys automatic updates broke KVM on my system, it won't run any guests and wont load the x64 version of the kernel module, i had to do some wonky stuff to get up and running again, but i'd rather fix things00:54
nmideright or report a bug if its a bug" and your response at its core is esentially "you broke things more, you are doing it wrong"00:55
simple_userWho knows how to fix the boot scenario?00:55
Bashing-omsimple_user: Have you tried the simple thing while booted ' sudo update-grub ' ? See if the initramfs gets re-written .00:55
simple_useryes, I have an error: stage1 not read correct00:55
nmidei'm not an idiot, i double checked that vt-x was still turned on in bios, i double checked a ton of other settings, i was at wit's end before installing the older packages, that wasn't my "goto" solution00:56
simple_userBashing-om: but grub console grub> always boot and I can boot kernel from it...00:56
Bashing-omsimple_user: K; that then implies to purge and re-install grub . Is this a EFI system, or are you booting MBR ?00:57
simple_userset root=(hd1,msdos1); linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb1; initrd /initrd.img; boot00:58
simple_userworks fine00:58
Bashing-omsimple_user: Have you a liveDVD(USB) on hand? And we can try a simple re-install of grub .00:59
simple_useryes, I have00:59
simple_userWhat should I do?00:59
Ben64nmide: you don't even know if that broke it00:59
Ben64and you're happy with your kludge so i don't see the problem01:00
vivekananda_phHi. I had installed Ubuntu 16.0 on uefi on ssd. Worked fine. Today swapped ssd to a new hd to install Windows. On swapping back ssd it says Bootable media not found. How do I repair Efi using live 16.04?01:00
nmidethe machine is a kvm host and an edge router that does nothing but host 1 vm and route IP traffic, your argument is technically correct but not accurate for the purposes of this conversation01:00
nmidei do know that the updates broke it, and i changed nothing but the version of the kernel installed to "fix" it01:00
Ben64you don't know, you said you don't know01:00
nmidedude, i dont care - my interest here is prevent other people from experiencing the same thing, nothing you've said so far is helpful in the slightest01:01
Bashing-omsimple_user: pastebin ' sudo fdisk -lu ' so I know the partitoning and I provide the simple re-install from a live environment .01:01
nmidethe old adage "if you can't say anything nice" applies01:01

I've changed no settings other than apt-get update && upgrade. I'm unable to connect to Plex server either (ubuntu). When I ping my router on ubuntu I get "ping: sendmsg: operation not permitted". The internet works, the laptop is the correct ip address. I can vnc in right when ubuntu06:00

mingdaoIs this a known bug, and is there some way to overcome it?12:44
mingdaoOne time I booted and didn't choose the run w/out installing option, and it *seemed* to install, but did not.12:45
mingdaoI just got the grub> prompt when it rebooted. It did make a ubuntu entry in the UEFI menu.12:45
mingdaoMaybe I should run efibootmgr and see what's there.12:46

mingdaoalkisg: /dev/sda1 is the Ubuntu 17.10 imaged flash disk13:01
alkisgmingdao: yes, and that makes it a non-normal efi installation13:02
mingdaoalkisg: It was NOT trying to install there, as I had selected /dev/sdg113:02
alkisgIt a normal efi installation, you have: gpt/vfat/ext413:02
mingdaoalkisg: So, I know how to make an initramfs; I know how to install grub manually; how to do this with Ubuntu?13:02
alkisgAh, ok, I thought you were trying to install to sda13:03
mingdaoalkisg: I has Arch installed right now; before that it had Gentoo13:03
mingdaoalkisg: no13:03
mingdaoI know how to fix the RAID array that the Ubuntu installer messed up, also.13:03
mingdaoI was wanting to know if this message I posted is a known bug, or just the automated installed can't handle it?13:04
EriC^^mingdao: what message?13:05
jk^Hi all at install it asks me to "Install third-part software for graphic periferics and wi-fi, flash, mp3 and other formats". Have i to select it or not?13:07
mingdao"The 'grub-efi-amd-signed' package failed to install into /target/. Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will not boot."13:07
mingdaojk^: I've not installed Ubuntu except once last year, but for the initial install you can check or uncheck that box.13:08
mingdaojk^: You may or may not require software from 3rd-party sources, but you will be told later when you install a package requiring it13:08
mingdaojk^: Afaik this is just a convenience, which will download some more software whilst the installer is working in the background.13:09
EriC^^jk^: yeah choose install13:09
EriC^^mingdao: does grub support xfs?13:09
EriC^^what's your /boot partition? there's a 263mb without a filesystem in your output13:09
mingdaoEriC^^: I am not installing grub to a XFS partition, so that point is moot.13:09
mingdaoEriC^^: /dev/sdg1 in the blkid output13:09
mingdao/dev/sdg1: LABEL="ESP" UUID="D22C-B0A5" TYPE="vfat" PARTLABEL="EFI System Partition" PARTUUID="abcaae2c-aec4-407b-9048-606b90c17241"13:09
EriC^^mingdao: 1) less attitude 2) that's just the grub that's loaded by the uefi, not the actual grub13:10
EriC^^where is /boot/grub ?13:11

Compy_Good morning/afternoon/evening all. I need a sanity check to make sure I'm not missing something obvious. I have an external hard drive (one of those WD Notebook 2TB externals). I can plug it into an old Lubuntu 14.04 box and it is detected just fine. However, I plug it into an ubuntu server (16.04) box running on an intel NUC and its never detected. lsusb doesn't show it, and dmesg never changes when the drive is15:11
Compy_pulled or inserted. The USB ports work with other hardware just fine. What could I possibly be missing here?15:11
Compy_I thought it could've been some sort of overcurrent protection on the port, but the drive is externally powered.15:12
nicomachusCompy_: USB 2.0 v. 3.0?15:14
Compy_hmmm, good point. The nuc has 2x 2.0 hubs and 1 3.0 hub built in.. as far as the OS can see... One would think that it'd backport fairly gracefully though.15:15

nicomachusgood_cookies: no, you won't lose data. but you should back up any important data anyway just to be safe.16:17
leftyfbgood_cookies: while the upgrade process should just upgrade your OS and keep all your files and most of your settings, you should ALWAYS have backups16:17

courrierHey guys, on nautilus 3.12.3 I could change the sorting method by clicking a field e.g name or modification date *during a search*16:58
courrierThis feature disparread on nautlius 3.26.0 (Ubuntu 17.10), we cannot click on column titles during a search16:58

ubottucourrier: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit.

good_cookiesnacc, it says me, 'name can't contain :' when i type the link on the repository on github17:02
nicomachusNoMoreWindows: I'm out of ideas. Not really my specialty. It may be a kernel bug, but I don't think that's likely. They sell the XPS with Ubuntu installed so it should work OOTB17:02
good_cookiesok, im install an updates17:03
NoMoreWindowsnicomachus: Thanks for the help!17:03
NoMoreWindowsMakes sense it should work17:04
NoMoreWindowsAnd it is a bunch of things that seem to influence it too. Even the acpi setting...17:04
NoMoreWindowsyeats: Do you know how to make xinput detect the touchpad?/////17:05
=== Amis is now known as Guest87310
yeatsNoMoreWindows: no, sorry, I've never faced that issue before :-/17:07
NoMoreWindowsIs installing xserver-xorg-input-libinput and/or xserver-xorg-input-synaptics a good idea to make touchpad work in a Dell XPS 15? I tried it last time and it kind of ruined my startup17:08
yeatsNoMoreWindows: you might dig around in the BIOS settings to see if there's anything relevant17:08
NoMoreWindowsyeats: Thanks anyway17:08

leftyfbgood_cookies: I have the latest version of corebird running on Ubuntu 16.0417:09
NoMoreWindowsyeats: I believe that acpi setting plays a role, but I have no idea how that works. Currntly, I set it to off at start up, but I have seen it advised to set it to force to make sssoooooommmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeethhhhhhhhhhings work17:10
AmisHello! Are there any GUI application out there that allows changing scroll speed in Ubuntu? I only found outdated one and I really don't want to tinker with xinput for such a trivial user setting.17:10
good_cookieshow did you achieve this?17:10
NoMoreWindowsyeats: and there is this weird thing with my keyboard taht seems to have tourets17:10
lotuspsychjeAmis: perhaps gpointingdevices might have that17:10
Amislotuspsychje, it's said to be outdated and forgets settings on reboot so I'm unsure about that17:11
AmisMaybe for only scroll speed it could work?17:11
good_cookiesleftyfb, tell me the secret17:12
AmisThe app is not even in the repo anymore (I guess because of the mentioned problems)17:12
lotuspsychjeAmis: hmm seems likes removed from repo indeed17:12
yeatsNoMoreWindows: you might keep a terminal window open running 'sudo journalctl -f' so you can see if any useful messages related to the issue happen17:12
AmisI guess that means as a "normal" user I cannot adjust mouse scroll speed in Ubuntu :(17:13
nicomachusAmis: which DE?17:13
leftyfbgood_cookies: I already did install with the snap. But you'll have to also install the gnome snap runtime as it tills you the first time you try to run corebird from the terminal.17:14
lotuspsychjeAmis: how about tweak-tool for the right flavor?17:14
lotuspsychje!info unity-tweak-tool | Amis try this17:14

ash_workanyone know how to change the prompt when starting asciinema?17:15
good_cookiessounds like very 1337 cheat codes17:15
ash_workthe docs say "ASCIINEMA_REC=1 is added to recorded process environment variables. This can be used by your shell’s config file (.bashrc, .zshrc) to alter the prompt or play a sound when shell is being recorded." but I don't really understand where they're going with that17:16
Amisnicomachus, the default Ubuntu? and a MATE, both 16.0417:16
leftyfbgood_cookies: no, it's installing 2 packages using snap and then connecting the gnome runtime snap to corebird17:16
ash_workI guess add ASCIINEMA_REC=1 to your bashrc and then you can put whatever you want it there, "ie: PS1="$ "17:16
nicomachusAmis: ok, MATE is what I was looking for. that's your Desktop Environment. (and that is not 'default ubuntu')17:17
Amisnicomachus, I'm talking about two installations17:18
AmisSo a solution for either17:18
ash_workno I mean, it loads the bashrc anyway it seems17:18
Amisnicomachus, I'm on MATE currently and I have another one freshly installed which I'm not on at the time. This scrolling issue affects both and I'm trying to figure out a user friendly way of adjusting it instead of tinkering with profile files and xinput17:19
AmisBecause that is not something a home user should do in this case17:19
nicomachusAmis: are you trying to adjust scroll speed for specific programs?17:20
Amisnicomachus, global17:20
good_cookiesleftyfb it didn't worked for me17:20
leftyfbgood_cookies: define "didn't worked"17:20
good_cookiesit's still 1.5.117:20
AmisI assumed there would be an option under mouse settings as in Windows OS-es but I have yet to find one. The internet suggest manual editing of files that can break stuff so...17:21
nicomachusAmis: idk about any GUI programs for global settings. `imwheel` may be as close as you get17:21
nicomachusimwheel is simple enough. http://www.webupd8.org/2015/12/how-to-change-mouse-scroll-wheel-speed.html17:22

good_cookiesfrom that article on site above17:22

nicomachusleftyfb: ppa-purge?17:23
leftyfbnicomachus: sure, shouldn't matter though.17:24
* nicomachus likes clean sources.list files17:24
leftyfbnicomachus: removing the package from apt will allow the snap's binary to become the one in $PATH17:24
* nicomachus doesn't understand snaps and refuses to learn when apt works fine17:25
leftyfbyeah, that too. Though at this point, installing from the ppa might be a good backup solution17:25
good_cookiesleftyfb should i just copy this liners and paste to the terminal? seems like something wrong there17:25
leftyfbnicomachus: snaps are kinda nice actually. It is a bit frustrating having 2 sets of packages/systems but it works out pretty well17:25
leftyfbgood_cookies: yes17:26
good_cookiesonly one last liner then?17:26
leftyfbgood_cookies: if you get errors, please paste them to pastebin.ubuntu.com and paste the link here17:26

NoMoreWindowsHey guys, thanks for the help in solving many issues with my new ubuntu installation. However, when I try to enable my touchpad by installing xserver it kills my startup. It either comes with no keyboard, or no graphics, and then I have to reinstall ubuntu. So I was hoping I  could solve the touchpad issue before messing with anything else. Can someone help me with that specifically? I am on a dell XPS 1517:47
gtrmtxapb1963, my bad17:48
apb1963oerheks to the rescue again! That appears to be exactly what I wanted.  Thanks!!17:48
WalexNoMoreWindows: on an XPS 15 things should "just work", unless it is very recent, but I would be surprised.17:49
apb1963gtrmtx, no worries.  Thanks for trying :)  You too nicomachus.  Thanks!17:49
yeatsWalex: NoMoreWindows: yeah, I have an XPS 13 that Just Works™, so I'm surprised about these issues too17:49
nicomachustbf I did say there's probably a gnome extension....17:50
apb1963oh... random tip for today.. there's an alarm clock applet that sits on the desktop/menu bar.  Works great - needs more features, but works great.  Recommended.17:50
NoMoreWindowsWalex: I am surprised how hard this whole thing is taking me. I know, someone mentioned it even comes with ubuntu sometimes, but for some reason, it is not working for me... I linked to a person having a similar issue, claiming that installinng a few xserver pakcages and setting acpi=force solved their issue, but that is the one that kills my startup... Ref: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=237621317:51
apb1963what do you know.. here's the link for the alarm clock.  http://alarm-clock.pseudoberries.com/17:52
NoMoreWindowsyeats: could you send me the link for preventing the bad video drives from running? I believe you sent me that moments ago, but I lost the chat history...17:54
thxffowhat is the current kernel version with ubuntu17:58
WalexNoMoreWindows: I don't have an XPS 15 unfortunately, but had an XPS 13 that "just worked"17:59
daxdepends on what version of Ubuntu you're using and whether you're using a HWE stack17:59
WalexNoMoreWindows: is that a laptop with dual GPUs perchance?17:59
NoMoreWindowswalex: I don't know about the dual gpu. How do I check?18:00
WalexNoMoreWindows: nVidia sticker?18:00
nicomachus`sudo lshw -C video`18:01
NoMoreWindowswalex: I don't see that. The only sticker I have is intel i7 one18:02
WalexNoMoreWindows: if you are at the Ubuntu console try as 'nicomachus' suggested18:02
NoMoreWindowsThere are some people mentioning BIOS updates to fix taht, but flashing the bios seems extreme to me18:03
NoMoreWindowswalex: What part? I lost the chat history...18:03
nicomachusNoMoreWindows: `sudo lshw -C video`18:04
apb1963oerheks, i'm confused... it says "To control GNOME Shell extensions using this site you must install GNOME Shell integration that consists of two parts: browser extension and native host messaging application."  I don't recall having done that before as it seems like a fair amount of effort. Plus, the wiki link it refers to is for installation into chrome. This doesn't seem right at all.  What am I missing?18:04
courrierlotuspsychje: what do you mean with this "latest" def? Should I switch to another distro version? Or another nautlius version? (sorry for the delay, I'm talking about my column sorting issue during search)18:04

apb1963nicomachus, but that's irrelevent; or should be at least.  The IP displays on the desktop.. that's kind of the point.18:07
nicomachusNoMoreWindows: you have an Nvidia GPU which is currently disabled with no driver.18:07
apb1963nicomachus, kind of why i'm confused.. browsers shouldn't be involved at all.18:07
nicomachusapb1963: gnome installs extensions though the browser. I know, it's dumb. For firefox, you need to install this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/gnome-shell-integration/18:08
nicomachusapb1963: then you also have to install chrome-gnome-shell from terminal18:08
NoMoreWindowsnicomachus: Yes. Last time we fixed the video with your suggestion. Do you think this has anything to do with the touchpad issue?18:08
nicomachusNoMoreWindows: no, not likely, but you didn't "fix the video". it's disabled.18:09
WalexNoMoreWindows: actually *you* reported that related to the touchpad.18:09
nicomachusapb1963: that just allows you to install extensions through extensions.gnome.org18:09
WalexNoMoreWindows: "However, when I try to enable my touchpad by installing xserver it kills my startup. It either comes with no keyboard, or no graphics"18:11
NoMoreWindowsnicomachus: I did fix it at the time (Ibelieve). It is just that I reinstalled it, and I havent fixed it yet again :) just figured I would do it after fixing the touchpad this time, since it is likely I will lose ubuntu again trying to make it work.18:11
WalexNoMoreWindows: I think that you have a very clear situation, but the convention on IRC that I follow is that we respond to the questions you ask, not those you should ask.18:12
NoMoreWindowsWalex: I believe those are two separate issues: the video one was solved by nicomachus. The touchpad one I have no solution, and when I try something that is suggested online, it kills my startup18:12
nicomachusI did not do anything with video18:13
nicomachusI did not solve that.18:13
WalexNoMoreWindows: you see the problem -- you know better.18:13
apb1963nicomachus, yeah... I don't recall doing any of that. Perhaps the same program exists in a different form?  Something non-extension like, but essentially works the same?18:14
apb1963sort of :)18:14
nicomachusapb1963: maybe, but this is what we've got.18:14
NoMoreWindowsnicomachus: you pointed me to this thread: https://askubuntu.com/questions/481414/install-nvidia-driver-instead-of-nouveau That solved it . Maybe it was yeats, now that i think about it.18:14
apb1963nicomachus, I should also point out that I'm using Unity (I think)... I don't know how that relates to Gnome.  I've just avoided gnome for the most part.18:15

leftyfbapb1963: is there a reason you're asking which one it is?18:28
apb1963leftyfb, so that I know if I can use gnome extensions or not.  But... my ultimate goal is to display my IP address up there near the alarm clock and such.18:29
apb1963whether that be by extensions, apps, widgets, or other... I don't really care.18:29

apb1963Yes... that's my point. It's gnome, not unity.  And yet... somehow... I had an app/applet/widget/program in Unity that displayed exactly like that extension in gnome.18:48

pikapikaAre these weaknesses still present? https://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/faq.html#no-ctl-alt-bs19:38
NoMoreWindowsYourFriend: Thanks. I assume I should get one from the session  Linux x86_64/AMD64/EM64T. How can we figure out which?19:38
NoMoreWindowsleftyfb: Will do going forward!19:38
Ben64NoMoreWindows: you probably already have it, and if you didn't, nvidia.com isn't the right place to get it for ubuntu19:38
leftyfbBen64: the official drivers from Nvidia will in fact work19:39
Ben64sometimes, maybe19:39
NoMoreWindowsBen64: I was having that impression too. Ideally I would like to have some command for the terminal19:39
Ben64alternatively, they exist in the ubuntu repositories19:39
NoMoreWindowsBen64: Do you know which one to use?19:40
leftyfbBen64: not always the latest version. It's pretty good at keeping up, but not always19:40
Ben64NoMoreWindows: the bit you posted includes "driver=nvidia" which means it's using the nvidia module already19:40
NoMoreWindowsBen64: What does that mean then?19:40
Ben64that you already got it19:40
NoMoreWindowsBen64: Should I just get some ppa for Nvidia, and it will know what to do?19:40
Ben64no, you already got it :|19:41
Bashing-omNoMoreWindows: nvidia says " Note that many Linux distributions provide their own packages of the NVIDIA Linux Graphics Driver in the distribution's native package management format. This may interact better with the rest of your distribution's framework, and you may want to use this rather than NVIDIA's official package." .19:41
YourFriendthe 'Long Lived' branch is usually pretty good19:41
NoMoreWindowsBen64: But video is choppy... Choppier than I had it today before I reinstalled the system19:41
Ben64try mpv19:41
NoMoreWindowsBashing-om: So you are saying that what I have with Ubuntu is the best I can get already?19:42
alkisgNoMoreWindows: sudo ubuntu-drivers list19:44
alkisgShows the list of proprietary drivers that you have, and those that are available19:44
alkisgAnd, the gui to manage them, is software-properties-gtk19:44
Bashing-omNoMoreWindows: No, not at all . Is the correct driver installed , are there driver conflicts ? how new is the card ?.. maybe better results installing a driver from our trusted PPA .. and the list can go on . Installing from OEM is the means of last resort and not for the faint at heart .19:45
bizhatapt not allowing me to update -> https://paste.ubuntu.com/26308398/ how i recover from this ?19:46
NoMoreWindowsalkisg: nvidia-384, and intel-microcode. I deliberately installed the nvidia one, so it may not be the right one!19:46
bizhati just want apt update work19:46
NoMoreWindowsBashing-om: See my comment to alkisg. What is OEM?19:47
nicomachusbizhat: looking19:48
bizhatnicomachus: thanks19:48
nicomachusbizhat: are you trying to downgrade mysql?19:48
bizhati installed a program virtualmin. that tried to install mysql..19:49
bizhati already had maridb.. i just need apt work now..19:49
nicomachusbizhat: does 'sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade' work?19:49
bizhatnicomachus: not working https://paste.ubuntu.com/26308422/19:50
nicomachusbizhat: do you need that mysql-server?19:51
bizhatno, i can remove it19:51
naccbizhat: you have installed mariadb19:51
bizhatyes, i have mariadb, i don't need mysql19:52
jk^where are the screensaver settings in lubuntu?19:52
naccbizhat: and it won't let you downgrade from mariadb to mysql by default19:52
Bashing-omNoMoreWindows: Well, let's see what the hardware is, and what drivers are installed. Pastebin " lspci -k|grep -iEA5 'vga|3d' - dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia " .19:52
nicomachusbizhat: wait, what is this 'https://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge'?19:52
jk^i can't stop the screensaver19:52
BluesKajNoMoreWindows, don't worry about intel microcode for now , just the nvidia-384 driver ...you'll need to reboot after installation19:52
pikapikaWhat is the safest lockscreen I can use? Currently I use the default xscreensaver with xfce.19:53
bizhatnicomachus: i have deb https://download.webmin.com/download/repository sarge contrib19:53
bizhatwhat caused problem was virtualmin install19:53
NoMoreWindowsBashing-om: That outputs: grep: dpkg: No such file or directory19:53
bizhatnacc: i am fine even if i can remove both maria and mysql, i don't have any data, can reinstall19:54
Bashing-omNoMoreWindows: Verify there is no typo dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia . otherwuse " that ain't good " .19:54
bizhatnicomachus: that deb line is what webmin provide.. i don't know why sarge..19:54
bizhatnicomachus: http://www.webmin.com/deb.html says "sarge", it is not problem with webmin, it worked fine.. it was virtualmin.. that cuased all problem..19:56
apb1963nicomachus, oerheks, leftyfb, et al: I'm reasonably positive this is the program/indicator I had installed before.  https://www.maketecheasier.com/display-ip-address-system-tray-ubuntu/#comments19:57
apb1963So now you have that.  Thanks for all the pointers!19:57
leftyfbapb1963: that's part of PPA19:57
apb1963leftyfb, Yes.  But, there doesn't seem to be a lot of choice.19:57
NoMoreWindowsBashing-om: Not working... Do I need to install anything, perhaps, related to dpkg?19:57
leftyfbapb1963: except the previous one we suggested. Also from a PPA19:58
apb1963leftyfb, yes.  It's a good suggestion, it's just not what I was looking for.19:58
leftyfbapb1963: and you had it installed before. So your argument of "I don't like installing ppa's.  I've been bitten and burned once too often." doesn't really holf19:58
apb1963leftyfb, fair enough.  I forgot it was from a ppa and yes, I do on occasion make exceptions.19:59
NoMoreWindowsBashing-om, BluesKaj: Should I do 'sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*', and then sudo apt-get update/upgrade to see if something better is installed?19:59
apb1963leftyfb, that doesn't change the fact that I do not LIKE installing ppa's.  But likes and needs are two different things.20:00
Bashing-omNoMoreWindows: Well as a check, what returns ' dpkg -l apt ' . but look'n like a bad nvidia driver install . and we have yet to know if nvidia is even part of the equation .20:00
jk^i say it better, i can't avoid that system is blocked after inactivity, but i already set "never", maybe is the block which happens togheter the screensaver20:00
NoMoreWindowsBashing-om: https://paste.ubuntu.com/26308493/20:02
BluesKajNoMoreWindows, no, try this to see what is installed, lspci -k|grep -iEA5 'vga|3d'20:03
BluesKajinclude the quotes20:03
Bashing-omNoMoreWindows: Nothing wrong with dpkg :) .. pastebin now : lspci -k|grep -iEA5 'vga|3d'  . we see what the hardware is .20:03
BluesKajNoMoreWindows, then do,  lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep 'in use' , include the quotes20:05
NoMoreWindowsBluesKaj, Bashing-om: I get only a prompt with a '>', but that is it, nothing else.20:08

BluesKajNoMoreWindows, ^ , nvidia-prime should be installed by default20:16
Bashing-omNoMoreWindows: BluesKaj , the 384 driver should be fine for that card . Bext we want to know wgat the graphic's manager relates. NoMoreWindows pastenon ' cat /var/log/gpu-manager.log ' .20:19
NoMoreWindowsBluesKaj: That might be the case, but I installed the current one on top of whatever was there before. How can I reinstall it?20:20
NoMoreWindowsBashing-om: https://paste.ubuntu.com/26308583/20:21
BluesKajNoMoreWindows, run sudo apt install nvidia-prime20:25
NoMoreWindowsBluesKaj: I already have that, apparently20:27
BluesKajok have you rebooted since installing the nvidia driver?20:28
NoMoreWindowsI did. But I can do that again, if that helps20:28
Bashing-omNoMoreWindows: BluesKaj : I do not know what to make of : Invalid /sys/class/dmi/id/product_version="" . what shows ' cat /sys/class/dmi/id/product_version ' as it is an ASCII text file .20:29
BluesKajNoMoreWindows, so you still have graphics issues?20:30
NoMoreWindowsBluesKaj: Yes. I got this computer because I liked the video quality, specially compared to what I had on my previous ubuntu. Maybe that is just better with windows though, but I am pretty se I d great video just today when I installed some driver I can't find again...

DanielK_WMDEhi all! in 17.10, how do I add a KDE app like Konversation to the launcher/dock/panel/thingy-on-the-left?22:44
DanielK_WMDEIt does not offer the "add to favorites" option that other applications offer.22:44
DanielK_WMDEI have seen the same with other KDE applications like Kate.22:45
raidghostKate is a nice girl:)22:46
DanielK_WMDEall I found in the FM was either about Unity (this is Gnome, if I underrstand correctly) or about Menu editors (which do not help, this is not the application menu)22:46
Neo1DanielK_WMDE: what does means FM?22:46
DanielK_WMDENeo1: "FM" as in "RTFM"...22:47
ikoniagrow up22:47
Neo1shadoxx: what is sald-cloud for templating?22:47
ikonia"the documentation" is what you're trying to say22:47
Neo1DanielK_WMDE: what is RTFM?22:47
DanielK_WMDEikonia: never!22:47
DanielK_WMDENeo1: google it22:47
ikoniaDanielK_WMDE: there is no need for that sort of approach to asking for help, just talk in clear English, describing the problem please.22:48
Neo1DanielK_WMDE: RTFM read the fucking manual?22:49
DanielK_WMDEikonia: the problem is: some applications do not allow me to add the mto the launcher-thingy oon the left of the desktop permanently. Gnome applications offer a "add to favorites" option there. other applications do not. how can I fix this?22:50
DanielK_WMDEIn unity, I could manually create a .desktop file and drag it to the launcer-thing. this no longer works.22:50
DanielK_WMDEso, what'S the solution in 17.10?22:50
oerheksjust drag it, perhaps? i don't see it, as i am still on unity22:50
DanielK_WMDEall documentation i could find about this seems to be for older versions of ubuntu22:50
DanielK_WMDEoerheks: nope, no drag&drop support. i see the icon while the application is running. but there seems to be no way to make it stick.22:51
shadoxxNeo1: salt-cloud is for building a system from a VM template that exist in your cloud provider22:51
DanielK_WMDEikonia: i was referring to the "FM" to show that I did some reasearch, and did not find anythign helpful in the Fine Manual.22:51
shadoxxie, i have a VM that's just a minimal install of ubuntu server, then i create other vms from that single one22:52
Neo1yes, I've installed tor and have left it on desktop instead on panel :)22:52
Neo1DanielK_WMDE: this functionality  not supported, better create on desktop where you will store all your installed by yourself apps22:52
oerheksDanielK_WMDE, maybe this page is any help, https://askubuntu.com/questions/967409/cant-add-custom-desktop-files-to-dock-17-1022:52
oerheksmake sure the launcher is valid22:53
Neo1shadoxx: it's like docker? What the VM virtual box?22:53
Neo1I tried to learn docker and then have dropped it22:54
DanielK_WMDENeo1: that'S rather sad. I actively avoid seeing the desktop, or putting anything on it - it tends to become a complete mess.22:54
DanielK_WMDENeo1: maybe I should go for a classic gnome shell then. i woould expect it to support standard .desktop files in panels.22:54
Neo1DanielK_WMDE: no, I don't now, default as we can see it's not support, but probably you can add it somehow22:55
Neo1DanielK_WMDE: in gnome the same22:55
shadoxxNeo1: I'm using VMWare as my hypervisor right now.22:55
Neo1DanielK_WMDE: I've moved to unity from gnome, have been using gnome for 2 days, this is enough for me22:55
JonelethIrenicuswill the amd64-microcode help with anything on threadripper?22:55
shadoxxThe issue is that when I change the hostname of the machine, then restart all services, the machine fails to get its IP again, even from DHCP22:55
shadoxxBut if I reboot, it grabs its own IP and has the proper hostname...22:56
DanielK_WMDEoerheks: that seems to be exactly my proplem, yes. thank you!22:56
shadoxxAlso, Neo1, Docker is a really great way to learn virtualization technologies, once you understand how Docker is layered22:57
DanielK_WMDEoerheks, Neo1: ah! when I *search* for conversation, i can right-click in the ressults and makr is as a favorite from there! that seems to work, though a bit awkwardly...22:57
ikoniashadoxx: you can't change hostnames on the fly22:57
DanielK_WMDEthanks for the link!22:57
Neo1shadoxx: good, what do you want to do? to do some virtualization like docker does?22:57
ikoniadocker is not virtualiztion22:57
ikoniait's containers22:57
shadoxxIt's a type of virtualization22:57
ikonia(which yes, is a virtual platform, but it's not virtualization)22:57
shadoxxAddress space is virtualized, along with disks and network22:57
ikoniait's very specific22:57
shadoxxSo you're saying KVM isn't virtualization either?22:58
ikoniafar from it22:58
shadoxxWhat would you qualify as virtualization then?22:58
Neo1shadoxx: great only on words, there difficult something to do, I wanted run ubuntu on docker VM and couldn't, should learn much22:58
ikoniaI've just said kvm is22:58
shadoxxikonia: containers are literally "container based virtualization"22:59
shadoxxThey are a type of virtualization.22:59
Neo1DanielK_WMDE: worked not for all apps, for torborwser it didn't work in gnome, thus I put it on desktop22:59
Neo1with ubuntu better use minimal apps, 5 enough23:00

Neo1Sean_McG: Ryzen in last AMD CPU? I have fx8300, and this is very powerfull, what you will run in linux for load wholly this CPU?23:05
gordonjcpSean_McG: pretty much none23:05
gordonjcpSean_McG: it protects against people running things they shouldn't when they've managed to somehow trick your PC into accepting it as part of something else23:06
Sean_McGNeo1: I'm a developer, so presumably large/lengthy compiles -- but I have been wanting to experiment with KVM as well.23:06
gordonjcpSean_McG: if you're not running something like a server directly connected to the Internet, you've not really got anything to worry about23:06
Sean_McGgordonjcp: ah OK.23:06
gordonjcpSean_McG: like, it's handy, but turning it off isn't going to turn you into a botnet magnet instantly23:07
gordonjcpwe got along pretty good without it for 20-odd years :-)23:07
Sean_McGfair point.23:07
Neo1Sean_McG: ok, Razer is better than fx 8300 and I never load it wholly, less then 50% always evne in games video card 100% CPU I forgot how much no more than 5023:07
Neo1Sean_McG: Just interesting can linux load that CPU or not, windows can't23:08
Sean_McGthanks everybody.23:14

Neo1baTed: good, use search and choose on that site needed extension for you, hide panel is good, or docker to panel23:30
baTedNeo1, https://i.imgur.com/DvyWkRf.png23:31
Neo1baTed: probably, if in your browser installed special addon you can manage your desktop from site, there should be buttons for change settings23:31
baTedI have installed it. Now it gives me ~ERROR~ on the extension page, and the extension doesn't work.23:32
Neo1baTed: yes, you see error, you can't use it23:32
Neo1baTed: yes, use other, that will work, there is plasore of extensions23:32
