Ubuntu-Struggler[Difficult Installation Question] --> I'm trying to install Ubuntu 17.10.1 through a USB thumb drive. Error message is displayed after the Ubuntu logo: Busy Box v1.22.1 ... "Unable to find a medium containing a live filesystem" I'm fairly certain that the USB and Ethernet ports are pooping out, but they do work during the BIOS stage. I have a PS/2 keyboard that works. I can enter commands at the prompt (initramfs)01:15
Ubuntu-StrugglerThanks for any help!01:15
Ubuntu-StrugglerI have tried to install Ubuntu mini through a CD (which seems to work) but I cannot finish the installation since I could not establish a network connection01:16
ChronicChopsresearching, hold on01:17
ChronicChopsFrom what i've found, it seems that your USB ports may be the problem like you said.01:21
ChronicChopsTry using a USB 2.0 port or USB 2.0 pendrive01:22
ChronicChopsOr boot from a CD if you can.01:22
peterrI am trying to get a full screen window but it's never the entire screen01:38
peterrthe border?/bar on the left is always there....is this called the launcher?01:38
peterrI thought there is a setting so that it would 'hide' when you click a window to be full screen?01:38
Ubuntu-Strugglerfor chrome at least01:39
Ubuntu-Strugglerholy crap I found my solution.. took me three days to try a random option in my BIOS labeled "IOMMU".. apparently it controls USB support for Ubuntu01:43
peterrubuntu sucks....it also is a memory hog01:44
peterrwith gnome01:44
Ubuntu-Strugglerubuntu is amazing! I don't like unity though01:45
peterrthey are not using unity any more01:45
Ubuntu-Struggleryou should try i3wm... it has fullscreen stuff, but it doesn't like floating windows01:45
Ubuntu-Struggleri'm still using 14.04 on my computers01:46
peterrI tried F11 with Firefox.... I cannot see the title bars anymore after doing that....is that normal?01:46
Ubuntu-Struggler14.04 was the last version to support my old AMD video card lol01:46
peterrdoesn't matter anyway...looks like that will only work for browsers01:47
Ubuntu-Strugglerin Chrome, Crtl + 1, 2, 3, 4 switches tabs01:47
peterrWhat about other applications?01:47
peterrvideo players, you want full screen?01:48
Ubuntu-Struggleri use this guy: https://i3wm.org/01:48
peterrreally disliking the new gnome01:48
Ubuntu-Strugglerbut I don't really recommend it unless you're into it01:48
peterrso difficult to use01:48
Ubuntu-Struggleri don't think it is, but if you're used to the mouse, it can be frustrating at first01:49
peterrI don't have it on any other distro so can't compare01:49
Ubuntu-Struggleri3 will delete gnome when you install it too01:49
Ubuntu-Struggleri don't know why it does that01:49
peterrthe bar on the left - how do you get a screen to overlap it or how do you hide it?01:50
peterrunderstand me?01:50
peterrI don't want to use any 3rd party apps I don't know about01:50
peterris that called a launcher?01:50
peterrI don't even know what it is called01:50
Ubuntu-Strugglerthat's understandable, i'm not really sure how to hide the menu, but I know you can... it's in the settings menu somewhere01:51
Ubuntu-Strugglerit's called a windows manager01:51
peterrbut, what is that bar called?01:51
Ubuntu-Strugglerdoes this help?01:52
Ubuntu-Strugglerit's just called a sidebar as far as I know01:52
peterrhey, that was an old post but that helped me figure out what to do :)  thanks01:55
peterryou're awesome, struggler :)01:56
Ubuntu-Struggleryou're welcome!01:56
peterryes, people call it side-bar01:56
peterrI'll call it that from now on :)01:56
peterri wouldn't mind it if it was there and opening a window to full screen would 'hide' it but what I did - it doesn't work that way01:57
peterrbut, I will leave it as is until I find out if there is a way for that situation01:57
peterrwhat I did is go to settings and under 'dock' there is a setting to 'auto hide the dock'01:58
peterrI guess ubuntu calls it a 'dock' now?01:58
Ubuntu-Strugglerthey must01:59
peterror gnome calls it that...or both? i dunno01:59
peterrit's only there when windows don't expand 'over it' - the auto hide feature?>01:59
Ubuntu-Struggleri remember that it was really hard to customize gnome for some simple things01:59
Ubuntu-Struggleri could never switch back01:59
peterrwell, I used 'gnome classic' for a while so I was not familiar with all these quirks02:00
peterrthat's my excuse, I guess02:00
peterryou use that guy's app?02:00
peterrdid you say you are still on 14.04?02:00
peterrI recently upgraded from 17.04 to 17.1002:01
peterrI don't remember gnome being like this... I remember some things but I don't recall having an issue with the side bar02:01
Ubuntu-Struggleri'm installing 17.10 right now on a new computer... you have me excited to see what's coming02:01
peterrwhat de do you use?02:01
Ubuntu-Strugglerjust an install bar at the moment lol02:01
peterrI have used kde, mate and cinnamon ....just recently used 'ubuntu gnome' when someone was configuring gnome with ubuntu...when ubuntu used unity as default de02:02
peterra what?02:02
Ubuntu-Strugglerinstallation bar, I'm waiting on Ubuntu 17.10 to finish installing02:03
peterri stopped using kde because of some segfault crashes and it would never sync with my phone properly02:03
peterrwell let me know if you like it - if you get it configured before i leave :)02:03
peterralthough, I have run into issues lately and have come on here lol02:03
Ubuntu-Struggleri was going to switch it to i3 pretty much instantly02:04
peterryou should try the default configuration first....for just a little while ;)02:04
peterr? :)02:04
peterrdoes i3 replace gnome entirely?  is it a window manager/de?  What is it?02:04
peterroh nm. :)02:05
Ubuntu-Strugglertypically you can just swap between windows managers02:05
peterrI read on the link you showed02:05
Ubuntu-Strugglerbut i3 tends to remove gnome when you install it02:05
peterrnow, I am not used to the side bar not being there by just moving my mouse cursor over lol02:05
Ubuntu-Strugglerthen throws a weird low resolution error when you reinstall gnome and try to siwtch back....02:06
Ubuntu-Strugglerreally, I don't recommend it lol02:06
Ubuntu-Strugglerunless you love the idea02:06
peterryeah... I think it is too different :)02:06
peterrI used to like experimenting like that but now I try to use something that is more widespread... :)02:06
peterrsomething that is more commonly used02:07
Ubuntu-Struggleryeah, I generally agree since those things have less bugs02:07
peterrthat's why I try to stick to kde, gnome or maybe xfce ...although I liked mate and cinnamon02:07
Ubuntu-Strugglerbut having fixed windows is simply too good to live without02:07
Ubuntu-Struggleri hate that ubuntu tries to mimic apple OS02:07
peterrit does?02:07
peterrI thought apple's OS has the sidebar at the bottom?02:07
Ubuntu-Strugglerthe docking bar thing reminds me of apple02:08
Ubuntu-Struggleraw, that's the same thing02:08
peterryeah, I guess I can see your point02:08
peterrwell, some ppl used to say kde tries to mimic windows? :)02:08
peterrI don't mind it if it works how I would like02:09
Ubuntu-Strugglerhm.. i don't really think I've ever used kde02:09
peterri haven't used it in a while....the last time I tried it.... was just frustration02:09
peterrit was too bad because I thought it has some nice points02:09
peterrbut, the issues were deal breakers, unfortunately02:10
Ubuntu-Strugglerit sounds like a good idea to have all these options, but it feels like it just creates more bugs sometimes02:10
peterrsometimes, you think they should just combine forces and make something good02:10
peterrI think there are things in each that are annoying or problematic....02:11
Ubuntu-Struggler(except i3wm, it's perfect)02:11
peterrthe doc can be moved to the bottom or right, btw02:12
peterrI guess the next thing I will try to figure out....is whether I can do anything to free up memory resources02:12
Ubuntu-Struggleryeah I have 17.10 up and running now... reminds me of a Microsoft Surface...02:13
peterrI'm not happy that system monitor is showing 2.5 gigs used...and I'm not even doing much02:13
Ubuntu-Strugglerit's almost revolting, I can't install i3 fast enough......02:13
ZombieI'm partial to KDE.02:13
peterr13 tabs on FF and Hexchat running....is that why I have 2.5 gigs of RAM used?  C'mon gnome/ubuntu?!?02:14
peterris kde good at memory efficiency?  is there anyone who is not a resource hog?02:15
kk4ewtff definitely is especially if any of those tabs are video or flash02:15
peterrI'm not familiar with a Microsoft Surface... I know what it is but I don't know what the screen/desktop looks like02:15
courrierMy Dell XPS13 (16.04.3 LTS) fails to resume from sleep only when it has just been disconnected from its dockstation. I feel this problem happens more when my monitor is connected in VGA (1 time over 2 sleeps) but less when connected to HDMI (1 time over 5 sleeps), so it might be a video driver issue02:16
courrierHere's my system journal http://paste.debian.net/1007431/ Notice the "FIRMWARE BUG" line 475 and the timepoint I suspended the laptop trying to resume after dockstation disconnection line 165. Do you find any clue in the journal? (Sorry for the big log...)02:16
Ubuntu-Strugglerjust tried it, so I'll add my confirmation that i3wm from a fresh Ubuntu 17.10 installation will remove your gnome windows manager02:16
Ubuntu-Strugglergood luck courrier, I have no idea!02:17
courrierthanks :)02:19
peterrUbuntu-Struggler, it's just my paltry opinion but I don't think that is good programming02:22
peterrEven if I was unhappy with gnome windows manager, I don't think a program should totally remove it....does it at least warn you that it is about to be removed?02:22
Ubuntu-Strugglersure doesn't02:23
Ubuntu-Struggleri agree with you, but I'll call it a feature since I'm a fan!02:24
peterrHa ha02:24
peterrhow long does it take to remove it?02:25
peterrmaybe it is a simple process to install it back?02:25
cpined_hello, with cygwin I was able to run sshd on port 443 and connect from an external ip.  Why is that not possible with Ubuntu?02:25
cpinedhello, with cygwin I was able to run sshd on port 443 and connect from an external ip.  Why is that not possible with Ubuntu?02:27
peterrdo you mean ssh?02:28
Ubuntu-Strugglerpeterr, it's not a simple process to install it back, for a beginner at least... i3 changes things to low resolution mode that persists after logout02:30
peterrcpined, you should probably provide the channel the messages you received so that people who know about ssh have a better idea of what went wrong?02:31
peterrUbuntu-Struggler, hmmmmm... I guess I'll pass :)02:32
cpinedlaptop has ssh port 443 via cygwin, I can access from remote location using my public my public ipaddress:443...I'm not able to do that with Ubuntu.02:33

HotCupOf_whois CodeBug02:39
JTechcan I use nvidia-settings to set up dual-monitors? It can't seem to save the X config file, and when I create a new X screen the 2nd monitor just shuts off so I'm not sure I'm actually making it better... but my game under Wine won't work on the 2nd monitor.02:41
Ubuntu-StrugglerJTech, does arandr work?02:42
JTechUbuntu-Struggler, not installed. lemme look into that.02:43
JTechUbuntu-Struggler, it's for... shell scripts?02:44
JTechoh I see. xrandr is about video stuff02:45
Ubuntu-StrugglerJTech, it's just a neat tool to orient video displays.. it's generally more reliable than others02:46
Ubuntu-Struggleryou can enable/disable your monitors with it02:46
Ubuntu-Strugglerset resolutions02:46
Ubuntu-Strugglerset primary02:46
JTech.... doesn't seem to have a lot of options. what am I supposed to do with this?02:46
Ubuntu-Strugglerit doesn't have a lot of options lol02:47
JTechI mean my 2nd monitor is already enabled. how is it supposed to help my game function on the 2nd monitor?02:47
JTechI thought with nvidia-settings maybe I could do something to make the monitors separate... because my game refused to go on the 2nd non-primary monitor.02:49
JTechbut "new X screen" just turns the 2nd one off. plus I can't save settings.02:49
Ubuntu-StrugglerJTech, hm I've struggled with that before, I don't think I found a solution... I just switched my physical monitors lol02:50
JTechI noticed that the 2nd monitor was sort of just off-set from the 1st monitor so I thought maybe the game couldn't see the 2nd monitor. and that maybe creating a new X screen would make them distinct monitors to Wine.02:50
JTechUbuntu-Struggler, it was working before and then spontaneously broke.02:51
JTechI wonder if it's because I switched from launching Wow.exe to WoW-64.exe... I wonder why that would break it...02:53
JTechhm. let me try launching Wow.exe the 32bit version.02:53
JTechgod this is bullshit.02:54
JTechmaybe.... if I unplug my 1st monitor... and plug it back in.... I wonder if it'll reposition the 1st as being offset from the 2nd instead of the other way around.02:56
JTechwhy the hell are dual monitors in the same virtual space anyway?02:56
Ubuntu-Strugglerarandr can fix that part02:56
Ubuntu-Strugglerdrag the little boxes how you want them02:56
Ubuntu-Strugglerthen hit apply02:56
JTechbut that won't make them distinct.02:57
Ubuntu-Strugglerno that wont fix that02:57
Ubuntu-Struggler"mirror display" option02:57
JTechI mean I guess I want them in the same space so I can move my mouse from one to the other but... I dunno.02:58
JTechtrying to find solutions online, I see disturbing stuff about writing new /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/nvidia.conf files and making the system unable to start up.02:58
JTechfor some reason he creates 52-nvidia.conf in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/03:01
JTechand I don't know why the 52.03:01
JTechand I really don't want to be screwing around with stuff that requires a rescue boot to fix.03:01

JTech.... ok. I "solved" my Wine game's monitor problem by placing the monitor I want to use on the left-most side. it's... still a fucking mess though, because my Xubuntu menu is hidden underneath the game and my monitors are reversed.03:08
JTechso both Wine and Xubuntu's menus refuse to be anywhere by the left-most monitor.03:09
JTech*anywhere but03:09
Ben64use a virtual desktop in wine03:09
JTechBen64 I don't think that works. doesn't that create a bordered window?03:10
lamduhIs there anything important to know before switching desktop environments or does it pretty much just work03:10
JTechoh right! plus the virtual desktop ALSO refuses to go on the 2nd monitor!03:10
Ubuntu-StrugglerIs extracting an ubuntu iso to a usb thumb drive the same as using usb-creator-gtk?03:11
Ben64JTech: then fix your monitor setup03:12
Ben64Ubuntu-Struggler: no03:12
JTechben64 yup. virtual desktop is on the left-most monitor. can't move it. how was this supposed to fix it?03:12
Ben64you can move it03:12
JTechBen64 how?03:13
JTechnope. alt-rightclick dragging doesn't do anything03:13
Ben64did i say alt-right click drag03:13
JTechclick dragging doesn't either.03:13
JTechnor alt-leftclick dragging03:14
Ben64then you don't have it set up properly, it should be a window you can move like any other window03:14
JTechhmmm... doesn't work when I try to do it with the desktop from winecfg either.03:15
JTechBen64 I can put my game on the 2nd monitor windowed already. but I can't put it there in "fullscreen (windowed)" mode. all my options have problems.03:16
JTecha virtual desktop with a window border would be the same as having it there in windowed mode as far as how many pixels I get. I'm also not sure if it would perform better FPS-wise in a virtual desktop. would it perform like windowed mode, or windowed (fullscreen)?03:17
JTechhmmm.... is there a keyboard shortcut for the Ubuntu menu? if I switch monitors I need a way to access it underneath the game.03:21
JTechwhy are all my options garbage?03:21
Ben64it would perform like fullscreen03:24

JTechmaybe I need to create it in a normal folder I don't need root access to create.03:43

mopdprobeHow do I install a patched version of a package?04:11
mopdprobeCan't I drop the patch to some dir?04:11
Jordan_Uhotbobby: Actually, I do know what's wrong. You've created a function named "date", and that function will be run instead of the "date" command. Since the date function then calls date, you have infinite recursion.04:12

* skraito hi all . happy sabbath day :) .04:26
JTechFYI, Wine on multi-monitors, solution: set the monitor you want to use as "primary". That's all. I can't believe the solution was this simple.04:26
JTechin the past I was confused by setting the primary monitor and not having the Ubuntu menu display on it. I guess it has nothing to do with that.04:27

za1b1tsuHello, I'm trying to use the terminal as often as I can to actually learn linux (I have ubuntu installed). I connected my android phone using usb and it shows up in the file manager.08:02
za1b1tsuThe problem is I want to use the terminal. I doesn't show up in lsblk, but it shows up on dmesg08:03
za1b1tsuI don't how how to access its 'partition' since I can't find it's partition name08:04
GizmoRomickIt's funny which desktop environment I keep going back to with my i7/16 Gigs RAM/Gefore graphics Desktop computer...MATE08:10
ducasseza1b1tsu: you don't access a phone like a normal block device, since it isn't one. the desktop uses gvfs to access it via mtp, if you mount it there you can find it under /run/user/ID08:10
za1b1tsuducasse found it thanks08:14

za1b1tsuif the terminal opens in home/me/, if I want to go to /run/usr/ID do I have to do cd .., cd ..08:39
za1b1tsuor is there a faster way?08:39
za1b1tsuFound it I can do /./run/.... , but what does /. mean?08:43
senapsisntalling process for my ubuntu freezes  what can i do to find the reason? i have changed my hard disk, it has a windows 7 installed that i want to get rid off, but it's hanging with no reason :(08:44
senapsi select to try it live or install it, next page freezes.08:44
ducasseza1b1tsu: you can do 'cd /run/user/etc' in one step08:46
za1b1tsuducasse oh I see, so how come it doesn't search for run in the current directoy?08:48
za1b1tsubecause its '/run' not 'run/' it goes to root dir?08:48
=== rah_ is now known as ragnaroh
ducasseza1b1tsu: because the initial / means /run is a subdir of the root08:53
za1b1tsuducasse thank you08:53
za1b1tsuIs this correct command to find a file that contains 'code'? find /run/user/1000/gvfs/mtp\:host\=%5Busb%3A001%2C005%5D/ -name code09:02
za1b1tsuby contains code I mean it has the substring 'code' in its name09:02
senapshttps://paste.ubuntu.com/26469286/  this is the log, and after this my screen just freezes.  i did this too, but didn't work. https://askubuntu.com/questions/861743/installation-of-ubuntu-16-04-from-a-usb-drive-freezes09:04

lotuspsychjesenaps: have you tested F1 at logo, to see what kind of errors show?09:05
senapsyup, the text pasted is the log from that.09:05

alocersenaps, no error is in that log09:06
za1b1tsuducasse, awesome cheers09:06
ducasseza1b1tsu: np09:06
senapsyup, no errors it just hangs... it copies the packages, does some gpg thing(i think it checks the signature or whatever) and then that 3-4 lines i copied and freezes.09:07
za1b1tsuducasse, awesome cheers09:08
za1b1tsuops mistake, but yeah you deserve multiple thanks lol09:08
za1b1tsuso I have some search results in terminal anyway I can select and copy parts of the find output?09:13
za1b1tsu*any way09:13
za1b1tsuwithout mouse09:14
ducassenot unless your terminal has a way to copy/paste with keyboard or you are using something like tmux09:15
za1b1tsuIm using terminator09:16
senapsis there any way for me to get out of this freezing thing? i had a cd for mint and did the same freezing without throwing any errors...09:17
ducassei don't think so, then. i use termite, which can do it.09:18
ducasseza1b1tsu: ^^09:18
za1b1tsuis tmux, termite better for stuff like this?09:18
za1b1tsuI want to use avoid the mouse as often as I can09:18
ducassetmux is not a terminal emulator, but it is something you should check out if you use the terminal a lot09:19

za1b1tsuIm trying to open a file from the terminal but I want to specify which application to use. I've read that I need to use -a argument open -a "app" file. But I get an error Invalid option a11:15
cfhowlettza1b1tsu, man open      will tell you the truth11:16
za1b1tsucfhowlett: so there is no such thing as -a and furthermore there is no argument that allows me to open the file with a certain application?11:18
cfhowlettapparently the open command doesn't do that11:18
za1b1tsubut why does it show me arguments for the openvt, not open?11:18
blackflowza1b1tsu: you simply call the application you want to open it with, and then supply options and arguments depending on how that application expects it.11:19
blackflowfor example:    /usr/bin/firefox /path/to/some/file.html    because firefox takes first positional argument as URL/path to open11:21
blackflow(technically it should be file:///path/to/some/file.html  but firefox is smart like that)11:21
za1b1tsublackflow why the tripple /?11:21

senapsokay, i was trying to make the usb bootable, and was doing it by fat32 formating my usb, i just thought what the hell, lets test with ntfs, and it is installing. (i didn't have a choice, it came in to the live, and i clicked on install icon) erased my whole hard disk.12:55
chickengoatntfs is for window bro12:55
senapsi know, but it's working for installer usb flash. i didn't change the partitioning but hope i have my / and home in seperate partitions...12:57
akiksenaps: you don't need to format the usb device. you can use rufus in windows to write it. press alt-i once and rufus responds with "disabling iso support", then just write the usb stick12:57
cfhowlettsenaps, if not, you can change it to that setup post-insatll12:57
chickengoati always use rufus for that12:57
chickengoatits awesome12:58
chickengoatare there any linux developers?12:58
senapshow would ubuntu partition my 1TB?12:59
senapsand it has installed unity again i guess, shouldn't it install on Gnome by default?(although i hate gnome!)13:00
blackflowsenaps: 17.10 is gnome, but it's themed to look similar to unity.13:00
senapschickengoat rufus didn't work for me, it was first to test. fat32 usb drive didn't work and freezed, NTFS is working up untill now, it's about 70-80 percent.13:01
akiksenaps: you don't need to format the usb drive if you will write the ubuntu iso on it13:02
s10gopalakik: software auto format it13:03
senapsi know, but usb has to have a format anyways.....13:03
akiksenaps: no13:03
akiksenaps: are you going to write the ubuntu iso on it?13:04
senapsusb flash when you buy it is NTFS or FAT32 by default. it has a format. doesn't it?13:04

s10gopalakik: i tried with ntfs , but failed to install13:06
akikit's like i'm talking to the wind13:06
akiksure you can test that the usb drive works and format it but if you'll write the ubuntu iso on it, it doesn't matter if it has a file system of any kind13:07
BluesKajHiyas all13:07
s10gopalakik: he dont want to make it bootable ?13:09
chickengoatthe format that matters is the format where u are gonna install ur ubuntu but not the format from the usb where ure gonna install the iso right?13:09
blackflowsenaps: what akik is failing to communicate is this. when you "format" a drive, you create a filesystem on it. The ISO is a "container" file that contains the filesystem already, so pre-formating the USB with a filesystem is irrelevant, since the contents of the ISO "container" will overwrite the USB, starting with first byte.13:09
blackflow("container" in quotes, not to be confused with containers in context of virtualization)13:10
akiks10gopal: by writing the ubuntu iso on the usb drive, it'll be bootable automatically13:11
oerheksusb drive should be fat16/32, AFAIK..13:11

=== Albatros is now known as alpha_Aquila
Sven_vBI think I managed to install from an ext3 USB thumb drive as well. I guess any FS that the boot loader can read is fine.13:12

s10gopalit depends on efei / bios mode also13:13
chickengoats10gopal,  it doesnt matter the format of the usb where u are going to install ur iso bro , as blackflow said the iso is a container with its fylesystem inside13:14
=== gr33n7007h1 is now known as al2o3-cr
akiks10gopal: by writing the ubuntu iso on the usb drive, the underlying file system, be it fat or ntfs, will be destroyed and overwritten13:14
s10gopalsorry , i was wrong13:15
oerheksofficially: the boot partition should be fat16/32. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick13:15
oerheksanyway, i missed the real issue here.13:16
=== gr33n7007h1 is now known as al2o3-cr
Sven_vBI like to partition my USB thumb drives with 3 partitions: #1 FAT32 for legacy windows data transfer, #2 FAT32 with a hige file named "casper-rw" that holds an ext3 FS, #3 FAT32 about the size of the LiveCD image, with files copied onto it by UNetBootin. this way I can tell UNetBootin to just create ~4 MB of casper storage, then delete that one, and the live session will use the large casper instead.13:19
s10gopaloerheks: Tj helped me and he is fixing the  bug and it is ubuntu issue13:19
=== Ard1t is now known as Guest71153
Sven_vBadvantage is you keep your casper data between UNB install attempts, and UNB wastes less time on casper before trying the critical part, install the boot loader.13:21
TJ-wooa! too much mis-information here! For booting using EFI the EFI System Partition should be FAT, but GRUB's /boot/ is and should usually be a standard Linux file-system. For BIOS-boot the same (except there's no EFI-SP involved). For installing the ISO images are hybrid, meaning they have mutiple methods of booting to accomdoate almost all hardware: ISO9660+El Torito for CD/DVD, BIOS MBR/GPT + syslinux, and13:21
=== addictedTS_ is now known as addictedTS
Sven_vBoh and pro tip if you re-prepare a thumb drive with UNB: keep xdotool at hand to press "n" a few hundred times.13:23
TJ-And the ISO image is designed to be written to the installer device raw, starting from sector 0 byte 0. It totally overwrites any partitioning or file-systems (and data) already there13:24
Sven_vBTJ-, so no casper-rw for you13:24
TJ-Sven_vB: I don't see the point; if persistence is needed a stock install is just as good, if not better.13:26
Sven_vBTJ-, by "stock install" do you mean writing the ISO raw? does that include space for the casper-rw nowadays?13:28
Sven_vBhas been a few years since I tried raw, back then it had no persistence and legacy windows PCs couldn't store files on that USB drive.13:30
TJ-Sven_vB: stock install as-in installing Ubuntu to a USB mass-storage device rather than using a LiveISO squashfs + overlay for persisence. That probably made sense when USB devices were small (2/4GB) but nowadays they're more than big enough for a full uncompressed install13:30
TJ-Sven_vB: a stock install can also have a FAT32 partition #1 for multi-OS support13:31
Sven_vBsounds like I should read about stock install.13:31
TJ-Sven_vB: it's just doing the manual partitioning step in the installer and creating the first partition as FAT for multi-OS sharing, then creating the remainder for Linux as per normal13:32
Sven_vBTJ-, how would I start the installer (and which one? Ubiquity?) w/o creating a live USB drive first?13:33
Sven_vBoh, maybe you mean use a live USB w/o persistence to install a vanilla ubuntu onto another USB thumb drive?13:34
Sven_vBor maybe "stock install" means you're "stock" enough to not need persistence in the session that you use to run Ubiquity.13:36
Sven_vBlike in the old days when we used actual CD-ROMs13:36
BluesKajthis old pc misses the old days :-)13:38
Sven_vBwell I'll read some docs about it, will probably enlighten me more than guessing.13:39
Sven_vBhaha nice, searching for "ubuntu stock install" mostly finds "stuch" ubuntu installs13:40
Sven_vBlooks like https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/tutorial-install-ubuntu-desktop is the official guide. meh that it seems to require JS to even render anything. :/13:45
Sven_vBwell I guess anyone going to install the ISO from that site can be assumed to accept arbitrary code execution in their browser as well. :D13:46
BluesKajanother new user leaves after being intimidated by what appears to be hi-level technical discussuion13:47
BluesKajnot many new users asking elementary questions in this chat lately13:49
Sven_vBand that tutorial assumes I just happen to have a live USB at hand.13:49
Sven_vBdoesn't really matter in the end, I'll just keep my partitioning scheme since it works nicely for me. :)13:54

VL6QDioiTsgY4QTHi, I'm trying to install some packages on Ubuntu 16.04.3 running 'sudo apt-get --install-suggests install build-essential', but I'm getting as error message: 'The following packages have unmet dependencies:  build-essential : Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.17.11) but it is not going to be installed. E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.'14:12
VL6QDioiTsgY4QTShould I try to force installation of dpkg-dev?14:12
TJ-VL6QDioiTsgY4QT: does "sudo apt-get -f install" fix things?14:14
oerhekswhy "--install-suggests" as the metapackage just does that?14:14
oerheksand did you properly update before installing?14:14
VL6QDioiTsgY4QToerheks: I ran it without the flag, and the suggested packages weren't listed as being marked to be installe, that's why I used the flag.14:15
TJ-VL6QDioiTsgY4QT: As oerheks suggests, there are no "Suggests" or "Recommends" for build-essential14:15
TJ-VL6QDioiTsgY4QT: presumably you want the 'suggests' for the dependent packages then?14:15
VL6QDioiTsgY4QToerheks: Yes, system is up to date14:15
TJ-VL6QDioiTsgY4QT: is the system multi-arch with a foreign-architecture declated?14:16
VL6QDioiTsgY4QTTJ-: I had just run 'sudo apt-get install build-essential', and when I looked at the suggested package list I found most of them were interesting, but weren't listed the about to install packages14:16
TJ-VL6QDioiTsgY4QT: OK, I thought that may be it14:17
VL6QDioiTsgY4QTTJ-: Nope, it's basically a fresh install of ubuntu server 64 bit. I didn't do anything fancy with it yet14:17

VL6QDioiTsgY4QTOh, I didn't know it had to be full-upgrade, sorry14:19
oerheksanyway, the output of update should show packages held back, if any14:19
TJ-oerheks: the messages isn't saying it's going to install 1.17.11 it's saying it depends on a version >= to that, which 1.18.4 matches14:19
VL6QDioiTsgY4QTBuilding dependency tree Reading state information... Done All packages are up to date.14:20
VL6QDioiTsgY4QTIt seems I'm okay14:20

Torm@tj I am running an ubuntu minimal cd on a laptop14:25
VL6QDioiTsgY4QTTJ-: besides that I get 'E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.' on console, probablu because standard error wasn't redirected14:25
TJ-VL6QDioiTsgY4QT: I think you may have found a bugette :)14:25

TobaI have an issue since doing the release upgrade to ubuntu 17.1015:53
TobaI used to have this issue only on the full disk encryption prompt when I was running xenial15:53
TobaThe effect I'm getting happens both in X11 and at the character TTYs15:54
Tobathere are vertical columns of pixels... not sure how many pixels wide exactly. I think I'm seeing every-other column of the actual video output ubuntu is trying to create15:56
TobaSo half of the vertical columns have been deleted and the others just pushed up against each other15:56
Tobaseems like a video driver issue to me. Any ideas?15:57
Borw3Toba: Video driver causing characters to change? I think its CPU/GPU problem in my opinion.15:59
Tobait's not characters changing15:59
Tobait's the entire video output having this 'grating' effect15:59
Tobaand it was never happening in unity until after I did a release upgrade to 17.10 last night16:00
Borw3GIMP turns to GUmgM :D16:00
TobaYeah it's kinda beautiful. I am laughing but also I can barely use the computer like this16:00
Borw3Thats characters16:00
Tobait's like being in star trek and here I am on an alien vessel trying to check my email16:00
Tobano, it's not just that16:01
Tobaallow me to demonstrate. please hold16:01
Borw3Tried booting from another OS?16:01
TobaI haven't yet16:01

Borw3I bet your BIOS got same character issues16:01
Borw3Yeah, try LOL.16:01
Tobabut I think you will understand it has nothing to do with the characters, those are just a funny entertaining example to look at because it's funny16:01
ikoniaBorw3: you understand the bios doesn't govern the characters on screen16:02
Borw3LOL, g2g ... brb soon16:02

ikoniaBorw3: guessing 'its the bios' is not helpful, so if you don't know, just don't help,16:03
Borw3ikonia: LOL, I didn't say it's the BIOS, I said he should try entering BIOS or boot up another OS, and if same issue exists, then its CPU/GPU problem16:04
Borw3....or hardware16:04
ikonia6:01 < Borw3> I bet your BIOS got same character issues16:04
ikoniaBorw3: thats you saying it's the bios16:04
ikoniaBorw3: and entering the bios would prove nothing,16:05
Borw3ikonia: LOL, I ment the BIOS would also display funny characters16:05

Borw3ikonia: :D16:05
ikoniaBorw3: final warning - stop16:06
Borw3ikonia: :D........my hunctch is that it's CPU/GPU issue not the BIOS, and that his CPU/GPU might be degraded/degrading.16:08
Tobato put this whole bios thing to bed, the problem doesn't happen before it reaches grub16:09

DirkosIm using "fpm" to create new deb packages. Is there a difference in installed between apt install ./package.deb and dpkg -i ./package.deb?17:23
DirkosSince with apt it will not run my "pre-install" scripts and stuff it seems. Thing is that dpkg -i wont install all my dependencies automaticly17:24
tomreynDirkos: dpkg -i will set dependencies as needed. a follow-up "apt update && apt -f install" will install those dependencies.17:28
TheSHAD0WHowdy.  I'm not seeing any sign of windows networking on a newly updated xubuntu system.  Samba client is running.  Are there any new firewall settings that need to be tweaked?17:28
tomreynDirkos: the correct way to install software with dependencies, of course, is from an apt repository, using apt.17:28
Dirkostomreyn: yeah i know but somehow when i do it, it does not run the scripts or something17:29
Dirkosusing this atm: https://github.com/jordansissel/fpm17:29
tomreynDirkos: also i don't think "apt install ./package.deb" will install a package 'package' from a local file 'package.deb' but it looks for a package called './package.deb' (mathching the name as plain text, via globbing and via regular expressions) from the configured apt repositories.17:30
ducassetomreyn: actually, it will indeed install a local .deb17:31
tomreynat least that's how apt-get does it, and how i interpret the 'apt' manual page on 16.0417:31
zomaarDoes anyone know if the KDE tooltip color for GTK apps bug is solved in Xenial with xenial-backports?17:31
tomreynducasse: hmm i don't see any hint on this on the man page, but maybe i didnt look closely enough?17:31
ducassetomreyn: i've used it a ton of times, so i'm certain of it17:32
tomreynok, i guess we need to file a documentatrion bug then17:32
tomreynon 16.04?17:33
Dirkostomreyn: is there a way to install a package from apt locally?17:33
tomreynDirkos: ducasse just said that i was wrong and apt actually will install local packages the way you tried17:33
tomreyn(and i have no reason to believe he's wrong)17:34
ducassetomreyn: at least xenial and up, unsure about earlier17:34
tomreynDirkos: oh maybe i got your question wrong, are you asking whether you can use apt to install a package form a local apt package repository?17:35

tomreynyou'll need to either gpgp sign packages (and import the key to the apt client) or use '[trusted=yes]' in your sources.list, though17:39
Dirkosthis is what i get: omnius-ose : Depends: php7.1-cli but it is not installable17:39
Dirkosif i run dpkg -i however it runs some pre-install scripts17:40
tomreynDirkos: if apt fails to resolve dependencies it won't install a package17:40
Dirkosyeah thats why there is a pre-install to add a PPA before installing17:41
tomreynhmm, that's rather dirty.17:41
tomreyni would not mess with apt sources as part of a package installation.17:42
Dirkosthen how to resolve that? Since i want the package to have all dependencies installed right?17:42
tomreynyou askthe user to install the ppa first using the utilities ubuntu provides (apt-add-repository), then ask them to install the other package.17:43
Dirkoswell there are pros/cons ofc17:43
Dirkosthen it works fine it seems17:43
tomreynthat's more manual work for the user but it puts the decision on what to trust to them, where it belongs17:43
Dirkostomreyn: true that, good tip17:44
Dirkosthe tooling FPM is pretty cool however :)17:44
zomaarPersonally I don't like it when installers run apt update without asking, if I'm on a slow link17:45
zomaarUbuntu does not use diffs for the list updates17:46
* tomreyn definitely does not like packages to modify his systems' apt sources without making me opt in to it.17:46

hoseinwafflejock there's a big chance the problem is due to my ppas but I set them to default and still no change19:28

phillijwgeirha: Unable to locate package wine-mono4.5.621:01
geirhaphillijw: aha, then that ppa probably doesn't have that package for xenial21:01
oerhekshosein, your python issue is rare, have you tried to reinstall ubuntu-desktop completely?21:02
Bashing-omhosein: Huh ??..lemme back up and regroup .21:02
phillijwgeirha: Do you know what I should do about it?21:02
geirhaphillijw: Looking at  https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ubuntu/ppa?field.series_filter=xenial   there's no wine-mono package built for xenial at all21:04
multifractalWhat's the best way to make a bootable win10 usb from the .iso file on ubuntu?21:04
hoseinoerheks Nope should I?21:04
tomreynphillijw: if the idea is to install it from that ppa then it looks like you don't "apt(-get) update" (but you need to)21:04
geirhaphillijw: that could mean that whatever it contained is just now part of the wine1.8 and wine2.0 packages there21:04
phillijwso I would modify this line by removing that package? RUN apt-get update; apt-get install -y wine1.8 winetricks wine-mono4.5.6 wine-gecko2.3421:06
tomreynphillijw: in fact you should probably use add-apt-repository instead of writing to the sources.list file and importing the signing key manually21:06
geirhaphillijw: Also, the text at the top that says "PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS REPOSITORY IS DEPRECATED" suggests that the PPA may be deprecated21:06
oerhekshosein, i would, as last resort21:06
phillijwtomreyn: fyi I didn't write this script. I am just modifying it from https://github.com/shofetim/ynab21:06
phillijwthe original script was using 15.04 which is no longer supported adn the packages are gone, etc...21:07
tomreynphillijw: well i don't care much, but i agree the message on top of https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ubuntu/ppa does not look like you should be using it21:08
kostkonphillijw, PPA is deprecated because they now have their own repo https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu21:10
phillijwok so I can replace the "echo ppa bla bla" stuff with "apt-add-repository bl ablabla"21:12
geirhaand the new key and package names21:13
phillijwdo you know how I can go about figuring out the new package names if some got rolled together,etc?21:14
geirhaphillijw: just try with winehq-stable, like that page suggests. If anything's missing, ask #winehq21:15
geirhaphillijw: that means, remove the install of wine-mono, wine-gecko etc21:16
phillijwyep thanks21:16
untakenstupidnicwould someone hand me the https://sourceforge.net/projects/bodhilinux/files/4.4.0/bodhi-4.4.0-apppack-64.iso.torrent/download  torrent file?21:19
phillijwthat seems like a really strange question for an ubuntu channel :)21:20
kostkonuntakenstupidnic, go on. because?21:20
phillijwgotta run. I'll be back later if I am still stuck21:22
untakenstupidnickostkon:i am both unable to download it (sanctions) and unable to setup tor(no access to any repository,and other problems about tor)21:22

new2ubuntuI installed VMware 14 under Ubuntu 17.10.1 (with proposed-updates installed) and every time I try to create a Virtual Machine in VMware Workstation Linux it crashes VMware, any ideas or anyone seen this problem?21:28
oerheksuntakenstupidnic, you have chosen torrent, why not the regular iso ? http://www.bodhilinux.com/download/21:29
untakenstupidnicoerheks: see,the problem is not with torrent, problem is with SF. i just want the kb-sized TORRENT file.21:30
untakenstupidnicSF would not let me download that LINK TO THE IMAGE.21:31
oerheksthere is a button' Problems Downloading' with alternate adresses?21:32

new2ubuntuWhat kind of MacBook?21:34
untakenstupidnicdear ubuntu people, could not anyone just download a few bytes of file and upload that on a random upload website on the first page of google?21:35
untakenstupidnici swear that wouldnt take even two minutes!21:36
untakenstupidnici just want to download the LINK!21:36
sammecsGood question. I’m booting it from internet recovery mode right now, but I guess 2012. MBP. More info when I have some basic OS.21:37
akikuntakenstupidnic: i can do it for you21:37

akikuntakenstupidnic: i copied it to here https://transfer.sh/z2SnP/bodhi-4.4.0-apppack-64.iso.torrent21:39
akikuntakenstupidnic: of course it would be nicer to get the ubuntu iso :)21:40
untakenstupidnicakik:thanks again,i am using ubuntu for a couple of years and i think that an E17 lightweight distro would do better on my laptop than Ubuntu or Lubuntu21:43
tomreynnew2ubuntu: try virtualbox, that's supported here.21:43
new2ubuntuVirtualBox is now what I am required to use for the contract I am working on, but thank you for the recommendation. I had no idea that only certain products were 'supported here', is this an open forum for any questions relating to Ubuntu? If not, I apologize, but I didn't realize you only will help with certain products?21:51
new2ubuntunow what=not what21:51

wsl123package is in a very bad inconsistent state; you should reinstall it before attempting configuration22:18
akikdavesev: don't replace python with python3. use the name python3 if you use python322:18
akikdavesev: the naming is by design22:19
tomreynwsl123: try reinstalling it then: sudo apt install --reinstall libmpc3:amd6422:19
untakenstupidnicnew2ubuntu: there is a #vmware channel in freenode and it seems active22:19
tomreynwsl123: but run "sudo apt update" beforehand22:19
wsl123apt -f install22:19
wsl123tomreyn: tried that, tried dpkg --configure -a22:19
wsl123done that22:20
wsl123tried uninstalling the package, reinstalling, apt update, dpkg --configure -a, apt -f install22:20
tomreynwsl123: niether of these are  the commands i just suggested, though.22:20
tomreynoh, maybe "reinstalling" is22:20
wsl123no i know but this is what i've tried22:20
wsl123just so you know22:20
wsl123to rule it out22:20
tomreynokay, you re still explainign the situation, sorry.22:20
davesevakik: i was trying different things to see if ican get it to work. but yes its for python322:21
akikdavesev: if you really want to do it, try making an alias? alias python=python322:22
wsl123tomreyn: basically it's saying there is a dependency problem; Package libmpc3:amd64 is not configured yet.22:22
wsl123not sure how to sort it out22:22
=== Richard is now known as Guest43075
tomreynwsl123: so try the command i provided. if ti fails, please show the command you ran and the output generated by apt22:22
davesevakik: im happy to use python3 i just dont understand why it is command not found22:23
wsl123tomreyn: hmm, seemed to have sorted it by removing the package line from /var/lib/dpkg/status22:25
wsl123tomreyn: is there a difference between apt install --reinstall then uninstalling / reinstalling? or is it just for convenience22:26
tomreynwsl123: are you saying you manyuelly edited /var/lib/dpkg/status, or are you saying that a line was removed off this file as a result of running the commands i provided?22:26
wsl123tomreyn: i manually remove the libmpc package line from there and now it's sorted itself out and reinstalled fine22:27
wsl123no errors now22:27
tomreynwsl123: okay, that's not how i would have done it, and i'm not sure this is a safe action to take.22:28
wsl123well it seems to be a generated file so usually shoudn't need to edit22:28
wsl123but as it's generated it's sorted itself out22:28
wsl123must have just been a slight glitch / stale info in there22:29
tomreynwsl123: the difference between "apt install --reinstall" and "uninstalling / reinstalling" is that the former can also work if the package is in an inconsistent state and cannot be removed properly.22:29
wsl123ah right22:29
wsl123well, thanks for the help22:29
DDRHello everyone. I'm having some trouble with the baloo indexer, it eats up about 16-20 gb of memory and then dies because my computer is out of memory. Is there any way to limit this? I do like my files indexed, it's really convenient, but the memory requirements are a bit crazy.22:31
Richard_CavellHi everyone. I can't get Steam (as in Valve's Steam) to run on my system. I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit MATE on an old machine with an integrated GPU. https://ideone.com/VjnxA922:33
tomreynDDR: hmm i had never heard of baloo until i just looked it up based on your report. i'd say if this process consumes more memory than your system has available and is thus opom killed then it's definitely worth a bug report22:35
ikoniaRichard_Cavell: so as the screen says it can't load the appropriate graphics libraries22:35
tomreynDDR: *oom killed22:35
untakenstupidnicDDR: use the locate.updatedb and locate ;D22:35
tomreynDDR: is your system fully up to date?22:35
Richard_Cavellikonia, So what should I do?22:37
tomreynRichard_Cavell: /join #ubuntu-steam22:37
ikoniaRichard_Cavell: you'd need to understand why it can't load those libraries, I suspsect the onboard gpu on an old cpu, just doesn't support the extensions22:38
