tomreynSJr: i thnk it has the Cloud-init" package installed by default, which makes it easier to adding it to 'the cloud' with canonicals cloud stack. you can just uninstall this package, and this file should be gone. i think netplan doesn't come with a (main) a configuration file by default, you are supposed to create it, or start with a template.00:01
Sir_AndreiWell, installation finished.00:06
Sir_AndreiBut it still gave me GRUB shell when I power on the computer.00:06
Sir_AndreiWindows 10 boots normally (If I select W10 boot from UEFI setup).00:07

Sir_AndreiLubuntu 18.04 (amd64).00:20
tomreynBlackDalek: menu.lst is grub legacy 0.9*, we're using grub 2 (1.9*) now, which uses /boot/grub/grub.cfg00:20

RoadRunneram having problems with webcams working with diff apps under diff xubuntu versions and wondering if it could be the driver or driver manager and if getting Linux Mint Driver Manager may help?00:22
tomreynSir_Andrei: is there more output or just this one line?00:22
BlackDalektomreyn, I am having an issue where grub menu is not skipping. I have only one OS (16.04) installed, yet it waits indefinitely on grub menu at boot up until I press enter00:22
Sir_AndreiHmm, i can paste it on pastebin, one moment.00:22
tomreynBlackDalek: edit the timeout option in /etc/default/grub and run update-grub00:23
BlackDalektomreyn, I tried that. I set GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=2 and ran update-grub but it still pauses at grub menu until I press enter00:25
tomreynBlackDalek: what is GRUB_TIMEOUT set to?00:26
BlackDalektomreyn, is there some other setting which is overriding the setting?00:26
tomreynBlackDalek: also GRUB_DEFAULT00:26
BlackDalektomreyn, 0.00:27
tomreynBlackDalek: both are set to 0?00:27
BlackDalektomreyn, GRUB_DEFAULT is also 000:27
tomreynis GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE defined?00:28
BlackDalektomreyn, there is no such definition defined00:29
BlackDalektomreyn, GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true00:30
tomreynBlackDalek: so GRUB_TIMEOUT is 0, right?00:31
oerheks10 is standard00:31
BlackDalektomreyn, yes, that's what it says in the file at /etc/default/grub00:32
Sir_Andrei_2Hi again00:32
Sir_Andrei@tomreyn ^00:33
BlackDalektomreyn, the only setting which has a numerical non-zero value is GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=200:33
tomreynBlackDalek: hmm, then i'm puzzled, with this configuration it should not show the grub menu by default, giving you 2 seconds to hit escape or shift to display it, by when it would remain waiting for user input00:33
BlackDalekIs there anything else in the system which could override the settings in /etc/default/grub?00:34
tomreynBlackDalek: that's all ubuntu defaults00:34
tomreynBlackDalek: it's /etc/default/grub.cfg00:34
tomreyndid you miss .cfg?00:34
tomreynoh wait, that's wrong. sorry00:35
tomreynBlackDalek: /etc/default/grub is correct00:35
BlackDalektomreyn, the filename has no extension :)00:35
tomreynBlackDalek: i mixed it up with /boot/grub/grub.cfg00:35
tomreynBlackDalek: i'm not aware of anything e4lse which would modify the behaviour there. you could look through your generated grub.cfg though, and see what was written there00:36
oerheksGRUB_TIMEOUT=10 ...00:36
oerheksthat is what mine gives00:37
tomreynoerheks: so you have the menu diplayed by default?00:37
oerheksno, it goes straight to the default entry00:38

tomreynmine http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/WzS7bKp2ZM/00:41
BlackDalekoerheks, ok... I'm modifying my file to reflect yours.00:41
tomreyni get no menu by default, there is a 2s timeout where i can activate the menu, then it waits for input00:42
tomreynBlackDalek: maybe you edited /etc/grub.d/00_header ?00:42
tomreynthat's where the imtout is added when grub.cfg is created00:43
Sir_AndreiIt is really necessary to reinstall GRUB?00:43
BlackDalektomreyn, I see your config has no GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=x line. Anyway, I am rebooting it now to see what oerheks config does00:44
Sir_AndreiI mean, I have regenerated it, and I've done a grub-mkconfig.00:44
Sir_AndreiIf my computer starts giving me GRUB shell, I suppouse GRUB is already installed.00:44
Sir_AndreiLet's restart...00:45
Sir_AndreiDah, GRUB Shell again.00:45
tomreynSir_Andrei: it means grub was loaded form *somewhere*, yes00:45
tomreynyou need to install the current version of grub to the device the computer will boot from once per grub version00:46
oerheksubuntu must be installed in uefi mode, right? else one needs to chroot an install from live iso and reinstall grub00:47
Sir_Andrei@tomreyn, with grub-install?00:47
oerheks* c/ booted in00:47
tomreynBlackDalek: that's right. i commented out GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 here (i think grub was always pointing out this should not be set when GRUB_TIMEOUT is a non-zero value) and it works fine this way.00:47
BlackDalekwell that was weird... during shutdown, I had a blinking underscore cursor in top left of blank screen for about 60 seconds before the machine restarted00:47
BlackDalekok.. now it's waiting at the grub menu again.....00:48

tomreyn<tomreyn> BlackDalek: maybe you edited /etc/grub.d/00_header ?00:50
BlackDalektomreyn, I will now look to see if anything is at /etc/grub.d/00_header....00:51
tomreynSir_Andrei-2: you are BIOS booting00:52
Sir_AndreiThat's new for me.00:52
tomreynSir_Andrei-2: and the grub which is loaded there cannot spot a bios_grub partition on the same device.00:52
Sir_AndreiHmm..., maybe cause it doesn't exists.00:52
Sir_AndreiWell..., I'll create one with Gparted, one moment.00:53
oerheksi agree that the uefi manual is poor, without proper images00:54
BlackDalektomreyn, the file 00_header appears to be a script. I am not sure what I am looking for. I have never edited this file myself.00:54

Sir_AndreiYou mean "install" on efi mode.03:28
Sir_AndreiI'm booting from Lubuntu Live first.03:28
Sir_AndreiThen installing.03:28

gastwell its a script that i run, i like to clear it once a while08:18
gastand yes they then run forever08:18
gastit would be nice to clear it , so it has more space for the next run08:19
gastubuntu 18.04 LTS default gnome desktop08:20
ducassegast: check the docs for the notification daemon, dunst has a keybinding (ctrl+space) to clear notifications08:20
gastyeah, thats the idea, but instead of the crtl+space , it would be nice to add the clear command to the script..08:21
ducassethere might be some command you can send via dbus, but you would need to ask the gnome devs about that08:23
gastok, reading the docs right now ;)08:26
gastok, found the solution : notify-send --hint int:transient:1 "Title" "Body"08:33
gastthe --hint int:transient:1 part does the trick, so it no longer adds a long row of messages ..08:33

zomaarpinga I couldn't help you but these seem out of this world problems10:50
pingawhen I query it in the terminal it says that the battery is present and fully charged, but when I unplug the ps the laptop shuts down10:55
zomaardo you mean instantly or ubuntu does it?10:55
pingano definitely a no power situation10:56
pingajust completely dies10:56
zomaarso instantly10:56
zomaarWhen hardware starts behaving like that it becomes rather.... endless ;-).10:56
pingaIt's actually new (refurbished)10:57
zomaarBut you have the same still in Windows?10:57
pingaso I guess I'll call the shop up and complain10:57
pingaI wiped windows os so haven't been able to test that10:57
pingamaybe I could boot from a usb and see if the issue is still present10:58
zomaarYou could try running the installer as it's a mini windows environment10:58
zomaarBut making use of warranty terms before they run out is.... advisable10:58
pingaugh bloody hardware why can't anything be easy haha10:58
zomaarAnd don't let them get you hooked on troubleshooting that will extend past that term10:59
zomaarBut if you cannot find anything online about it, then you have a strong case to blame the hardware ;-)10:59
pingaTbh since it's a refurb I wouldn't be surprised11:00
zomaarYou did not find anything when searching?11:00
pingaJust seemed odd that the issue happened after the reinstall11:00
pingaA few things suggesting some sort of config error11:01
zomaarI'm not saying it's not a interplay between the Linux kernel and your laptop11:01
zomaarhowever when hardware starts behaving like that the "end is lost"11:01
pingabut when I get the status of the battery in terminal it sounds fine11:01
zomaarWhat Ubuntu are you using?11:02
pingaI'll try the mini boot like you sugggested tho11:02
pinga18.04 LTS11:02
zomaarSo you got a recent kernel11:02
pingayah ^^11:03
zomaarIf you can get a 16.04.3 ISO or 16.04.0 you could try other kernels11:03
zomaarbut yeah I would suggest getting other hardware instead11:03
tomreynwen it comes to anything acpi related, cross-testing with windows is probably a good idea. but i'm with zomaar, this sounds a lot like hardware issues. maybe they forogt to replace a fully dead battery when they refurbished11:04
zomaar(even if it is software you have no hopes of solving it)11:04
tomreynwell, could look for a bios update. but if they refurbished, you should already have that11:05
zomaaroh someone here had some acpi script right? For Grub? Was that you?11:06
tomreynnot me11:06
tomreyn(and i dont know what you're referring to)11:06
tomreynoh maybe TJ's11:07
zomaarsomeone has script online that will check flags for windows version for grub to emulate windows11:07
pingaI saw something like that when I was googling around11:07
zomaaryeah TJ11:07
zomaarthat's him11:07
pingato reset battery configs or something11:07
tomreynyou can get the bios version using "sudo dmidecode --type bios" and the laptop model using "sudo dmidecode --type baseboard"11:08
zomaarYou get something like this: acpi_osi=! \"acpi_osi=Windows 2006\""11:08
zomaarin the grub command line11:08
zomaarapparently acpi_osi="Windows 2006" would be sufficient, or Windows 201211:10
tomreynbut just testing with windows installer is probably easier for a first step11:10
tomreynwell, not easier, but more telling11:11
zomaarI'd suggest putting acpi_osi="Windows 2006" immediately in /etc/default/grub and giving it a go11:11
pingawow that's really something11:12
pingazomaar: thanks heaps11:12
zomaarupdate-grub, reboot, see if it happens, otherwise reboot to Windows ISO11:12
zomaaroh yeah you cannot put it in grub default without the ! and the quotes11:14
zomaarbut you can try it while booting of course (press E to edit the grub menu)11:14
pingaYeah I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the suggestions (:11:16

tomreynjuslintek: what's the purpose of having > 5 VPN configurations?13:57
juslintektomreyn, to prevent System panel hangging, while it tries to load 10 000 VPN servers list. :(14:02
juslintekI've imported all profiles using nmcli inside for loop or profiles list.14:03
juslintekAnd now system panel hangs up, when initiated.14:04
juslintektomreyn, oh you mean why I should use more then 5 alternate vpn networks? Its for special services that can only be access via those countries. Basically for monitoring purposes.14:05
tomreynjuslintek: you do service monitoring from a desktop comuter?14:07
juslintektomreyn, whats the purpose of this question? How is it even related to the problem? Is it some trolling pick up line?14:07
tomreynit's an unusual use case, you are probably the first person to ever import 10K VPN profiles to network manager. so i'm wondering why you would, and whether there can be a better approach. trying to help yoiu, you know.14:08
juslintektomreyn, everything is automatized, but I manage monitoring settings, for streaming data to our main service, which is access only locally from our office. Okay imagine city scale intranets, which are used per town administration of different sectors all over the world. And we provide these services to them, but sometimes they have issues or we have changes in server settings so need to connect and tweak those settings for them.14:10
juslintekAnd on some countries those services are hosted on windows machine, so need to connect via locally identifiable ip and then access from there web panel.14:12
tomreynjuslintek: okay, but why do you monitor this from a desktop computer?14:12
juslintektomreyn, I'm not monitoring. I'm tweaking settings. But the services I'm tweaking settings are for minotoring basically graphana type of monitoring.14:13
juslintekOkay lets change the question. Is there any alternative system panels for gnome?14:14
juslintekOr is there possibility to tweak their settings, maybe there are some alternative ui display methods?14:15
tomreynjuslintek: you should probably have one headless system which sets up the vpn connection (and may store many openvpn - i assume - profiles). and then another system which runs a graphical desktop which then connect to the remote network though this headless server.14:15
juslintektomreyn, I could, but I will not. I have no business level permissions to change that, everyone else is using mac, which has nordvpn client which already store all services and displays in performance friendly manner.14:20
juslintekAnd they are probably only going to release linux UI in future, because minority of paid customers are from Linux and guess they use it for some other purposes, which do not require UI.14:21
=== semeion is now known as mnemonic
tomreynjuslintek: are you saying the macs have those 10K VPN profiles configured and their GUI doesn't lag while importing them?14:25
tomreyn...or while using them14:25
juslintektomreyn, yep, because it picks them up async, via filter,  lag, very fast. ;-)14:26
tomreynif so, i suggest you post a feature request discussing why you need this with higher performance, and that it already works on a mac.14:26
juslintekCool, will do that.14:27
juslintektomreyn, where should I do that?14:29
juslintekMaybe I can do it myself, where is the repo of that, then I can ask for pull request. :-D14:29
juslintekBecause I think it not that hard to do. just need to load max 5 via abc profiles while above there should be a filter which on keyinput starts changing those 5 with other 5 profiles, depending on they letters entered.14:30
Neomexanyone here developing games on linux? what do you use? im trying to setup monogame but their content pipeline is killing me14:36
juslintekNeomex, you're wasting time. Drivers are not game engine ready. Go back to windows.14:38
* Neomex cries14:39
juslintekIf you'll develop on ubuntu, you'll be missing out on latest features and will have to struggle with continious render lag.14:45
EriC^^just call the game continious render lag and make a thing out of it14:45
Neomexill call my company that14:46
Neomexi like it14:46
Neomexwell i guess i have to download bunch of crap to make windows usable now14:47

stobrendoHi there. I've installed lubuntu and have 2 problems with it. First one is that I don't have audio at all and second one is that whenever I play any video on any browser (html5), the video is choppy (it struggles and "jumps"), but when I download that exact same video and play it with VLC It plays perfectly. I haven't a clue on how could I fix it, audio isn't muted (already checked in alsamixer and15:05
stobrendopavucontrol), headphones are working and already did `modprobe pcspkr`, also already installed lubuntu-restricted-extras , ubuntu-restricted-extras vpx-tools, wavpack, gnome-alsamixer and i965-va-driver. What else could be missing or wrong_15:06
tomreyn!audio | stobrendo; this is a bit dated, but might help15:11
ubottustobrendo; this is a bit dated, but might help: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.15:11
tomreynstobrendo: about the video playback issue, access this url on firefox: "about:performance", and right-click on a youtube video and select the 'statistics for nerds'15:12
tomreynsee if this provides some hints on what may be causing the slowdown. also discuss your lubuntu version (lsb_release -ds), kernel version and architecture (cat /proc/version), as well as video hardware and drivers.15:14

hiyaUbuntu 18 LTS is listening to port 25 by default16:02
hiyawhat could it be? how to stop it?16:03
tomreynsudo lsof -i :2516:03
tomreynhiya: this should tell16:03
hiyatomreyn, it says SMTP16:03
hiyabut i never ran it in 16.0416:03
tomreynhiya: it's the default smtp server port, though.16:04
stobrendotomreyn: so, only way to fix it is messing around with kernels parameters and recompiling? Isn't there any chance of a distro that would work with any hassle? I never imagined it could be possible to have to mess with the kernel in order to make ubuntu work fine16:04
hiyahow to disable that service, tomreyn ?16:04
tomreynstobrendo: it's not so much ubuntu or linux that's the problem, it's using hardware by companies which don't provide good linux drivers.16:05
tomreynhiya: first you'll need to identify the service. i provided you the command to identify the process, then you can probably identify the service or packages based on that.16:06
hiyatomreyn, how to check package from PID?16:07
tomreynhiya: find out how the process was started: ps ef PID16:08
tomreynhiya: this will be the postfix mail server. "dpkg -S /usr/lib/postfix/sbin/master" may help you identify the package, but it should be "postfix"16:10
tomreynthe service is probably called "postfix", too16:10
hiyatomreyn,  you rock16:12
hiyatomreyn,  how do i learn what u just did?16:13
tomreynhiya: if you want to know when it was installed, you can zgrep -F postfix /var/log/apt/term.log* | sort -nr16:13
tomreynhiya: use ubuntu or other linux distros, primarily from a terminal, for a couple years.16:13
tomreynand actually plan to run and maintain services for yourself and friends or other projects (i.e. force yourself to become acquainted with the most important commands for this purpose)16:15
tomreynalso watching this chat and learning from others can help. i learn a lot here.16:16
blackflowhiya: ubuntu wont teach you the internals of linux distros. run LFS or Gentoo for a while to learn how it's made and how stuff works internally.16:20

EriC^^elyon: sure18:41
elyonok, bye!18:41
EriC^^persi: i guess it's an isp cache problem, you could try bypassing the cache using curl's nocache option and manually copying the file to your ../archives dir so ubuntu uses it instead to install18:42
EriC^^what do you think?18:42
persisounds great.18:42
persiif only i know how to use curl no cache opt. :D18:42
EriC^^persi: ok, try "curl -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache'"18:43
EriC^^then run md5sum on the file it gives in your current working dir18:43
persican i apply that to all hash mismatch?18:43
EriC^^well i guess so, i've never actually tried this before :P18:44
persiis it reversible just in case?18:44
EriC^^yeah sure18:44
EriC^^no worries :)18:44
persii have around 5 hash mismatch18:44
EriC^^ah, try the gcc one first, curl sometimes doesn't bypass the cache you see18:45

EriC^^persi: no it just downloads, just tried it18:47
tsarompyi have a 1tb external hard drive, would it be possible for me to write an install ISO to one of the partition, and use the other one for storage/backup files?18:47

Bashing-omtsarompy: sure .. just be aware USB speeds are slow .18:48

Bashing-ompersi: Might consider that the Mergelist files are corrupted . When corrupted, they can be safely deleted. Apt will recreate them during the next apt update.18:55
EriC^^persi: ah i know why, it's cause the isp has the file cached i guess18:55
persiEriC^^, changing now18:55

Biessiei can access any server using LAN ip:port but i can not using WAN ip:port23:50
