waterCreaturehi, i am following mongodb installation guide and dont quite understand what to do for this step. >> Copy these binaries into a directory listed in your PATH variable such as /usr/local/bin,02:04
tomreynwaterCreature: is there a reason you're not using the existing packages?02:05
waterCreaturethere is no specific reason02:06
waterCreatureif i encounter such tgz file again02:07
tomreynthen i'd always prefer packages.02:07
waterCreaturei would know what to do next time.02:07
tomreynin case you seek newer releases than the ones in ubuntu (which do receive security patches, and a version stable), you could also use the upstream (mongodb.com) APT repository discussed at https://docs.mongodb.com/master/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-ubuntu/02:08
tomreyn(but they may not provide version stability.)02:09
lotuspsychjefew mongo snaps out there too02:09
guiver_dwaterCreature: fyi:  the instruction was telling you to `echo $PATH` & use a directory listed in that envionment variable such as /usr/local/bin/  -- but using supported packages are safer (stability wise, and have security updates backported to them as others have said)02:11

lotuspsychjeStormmore: and wich graphics card chipset?02:35
Stormmorenvidia 106002:35
lotuspsychjeah try nomodeset Stormmore02:35
lotuspsychje!nomodeset | Stormmore02:36
ubottuStormmore: A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter02:36
Stormmoreyeah I tried that :-/02:36
Stormmoresorry I was still typing some of the steps I have tried02:36
lotuspsychjeStormmore: is this single boot ubuntu or dualboot?02:37
StormmoreI have also tried nouveau.nomodeset=1 too; multiple attempts at loadinng nvidia-390 and 39602:38
Stormmorelotuspsychje, keeping the problem as simple as possible :) straight up Ubuntu for this bad boy02:38
lotuspsychjeStormmore: i guess you also cant F1 at boot, to see text right?02:38
Stormmorelotuspsychje, correct02:38
Stormmoreafter the grub loader nothing but the back light is on02:39
lotuspsychjeStormmore: a recent iso also? wich kernel is booting?02:39

Stormmoreonly went to 390 since 396 wasn't working02:41
lotuspsychjeStormmore: tryed another kernel to boot?02:41
Stormmoreoh recovery boot work until I tell it to resume02:42
Stormmorethe kernel in the ISO is .20 not .2302:42
StormmoreI am going to do a quick wipe and try without letting the installer updating to .23 because I vaguely remember the first boot working and then stop after I do an apt upgrade02:43
lotuspsychjeStormmore: try updating your system in the recoverymode02:43
Stormmorebut that said I have installed 4.18rc4 once and was seeing the problem with it too02:43
lotuspsychjeStormmore: try also sudo apt purge nvidia* from recovery, sometimes that works falling back to nouveau to get in02:44
StormmoreI see this problem before I even install the nvidia driver02:44
lotuspsychjeStormmore: yeah depends wich driver ubuntu chosen02:45

StormmoreI am seriously pondering breaking open the initrds for both the working and non-working kernel, this is suppose to be a mainline test machine04:08
TiZHello there. I've been having problems with my kernel upgrades. I have the nvidia driver installed and it's a UEFI system that has secure boot. 16.04 would always bother me to turn off secure boot but the modules were signed with the MOK, so I never had a problem with it. The kernel upgrades always freeze up. pstree on dpkg shows update-secureboot-policy and whiptail stalled. It seems like whiptail is trying to show me something but is f04:10
TiZI have an Ask Ubuntu question open for this issue with only one answer that didn't correct the issue: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1052000/all-kernel-upgrades-hang-on-update-secureboot-policy-enroll-key/04:11
TiZIt kind of seems like what it comes down to is that whiptail is broken in some way, at least when run through dpkg. When I invoke whiptail just in my regular shell, it works though.04:17

oerhekseraserpencil,  you have both sources, 32 and 64 bit, so i wonder what you are doing.04:39
T3ssHi all, this should be simple, but I can't figure it out. I've created an ext4 partition on /dev/sdb1, I've added /dev/sdb1    /awg    ext4    defaults    0    0 to my fstab. I've sudo mkdir'd /awg - but when I type sudo mount /awg it says the mount point is busy. #lsof /awg reports nothing has it locked.04:39
oerheksT3ss, normally one would mount partitions in /mnt/  or in free /media/04:41
T3ssoerheks: true, but even changing the details to /mnt/awg and creating that mount point gave the same.04:42
oerheksis that sdb1 clean? you could see with a fsck04:42
eraserpenciloerheks, i dont think I have 32 bit running. I do have arm64 and amd64 bit running though. What happened is I used my computer to flash an Nvidia board through an Nvidia installer. What I guess happened is that the installer added the arm64 sources to how apt would search for repos.04:43
T3ssIt says it's already mounted or the mount point is busy.04:43
T3ssoerheks: fsck says it can't continue because it's mounted. But umount /dev/sdb1 says it isn't mounted04:43
eraserpencilI'm now looking at how to remove those arm64 links to the path apt searches. I've looked at /etc/apt, but couldnt find any references04:44
oerheksi think that tool used dpkg --add-architecture arm64  .. see with  dpkg --print-foreign-architectures04:46

silv3r_m00nanybody there ?06:58
ducassethere are people here, but it's still kind of early for some of us06:59
silv3r_m00ni see. no problem07:00
waterCreaturehow do i find a file by name?07:00
waterCreatureI did find . -name "nameol*"07:00
waterCreaturebut no result...07:00
silv3r_m00nwaterCreature: probably recursive flag07:00
ducasse'find' is recursive by default07:01
Mr_PanwaterCreature,    find /  -name namefile*07:01
ducasseor try 'locate'. if the file is in the database it's much quicker.07:02
waterCreaturefind: ‘/proc/19547’: No such file or directory07:02
Mr_PanwaterCreature, with  sudo ...07:02
cypectorwatercreature locate works as well07:02
cypectoryou dont need sudo07:03
waterCreaturesame result07:03
cypectorwith locate?07:03
waterCreaturelocate gives no result also07:03
cypectoryou are typing 'locate <fileName>07:04
cypectoryou are typing 'locate <fileName>'07:04
waterCreaturelocate "nameol*"07:04
ducassetry with locate -i filename07:05
waterCreaturedo i need to know the full filename?07:06
cypectoryour not using quotes are you07:06
cypectornot with locate07:06
ducassewaterCreature: drop the '*'07:08
waterCreaturesame result07:08
cypectoroh and when you use the find command you dont need -name07:09
cypectoryou have "find . -name nameol" you need "find nameol" if you cant find it there use "locate nameol" you should get a result07:12
waterCreaturei got a lot of results using find . nameol07:13
ducasseor use find -iname to make the search case insensitive07:14
cypectorthats why i said use locate it will tell you anywhere it might be and case doesnt matter07:16
ducasselocate is case sensitive unless you use -i07:18
cypectoranyone get airmoggedon working on ubuntu "i may have spelled that wrong"07:19
cypectori have been trying and the dependencies dont all work I am chasing my tail i install what is needed but not everything seems to be working07:21
cypector<ducasse> either way not needed in this case you are right though07:23
cypectorwaterCreature did everything work?07:29
waterCreaturenothing worked...07:29
cypectorwhat are you trying to do exactly07:30
waterCreatureinstall informix server07:30
waterCreaturethis is my third time installing it coz I think I may have missed some username password specification step07:31
cypectoron a VM or physical machine?07:31
waterCreatureon VM07:32
waterCreatureI can just delete the Vm and recreate.... but still07:33
cypectorsome os dont work so well on a hypervisor you know07:33
cypectorkali for example07:33
waterCreatureafter I delete the /opt/informix folder manually07:34
waterCreatureit seems to work, "okay"07:34
cypectorinformix...what is it for? i havent used it before07:35
waterCreatureit's a database.07:36
waterCreaturei feel like quitting this job because of the architecture of this project07:36
waterCreatureand the people07:36
cypectorthis is for an employer? what is it you do07:38

uebera||With netplan (on Ubuntu 18.04), are "nameservers:" settings ignored when using dhcp4/dhcp6? Shouldn't the "search:", "addresses:" entries put into /etc/resolv.conf? (Note: "renderer" is networkd, I've deactivated/masked NetworkManager.service)08:14
anliapt-cache policy git shows that I run 1:2.17.0-1ubuntu1, is that a version that is modified for ubuntu?08:32
anliOr certified by ubuntu?08:32
anliThe version table for git shows that the webserver returned status 50008:33
ducasseanli: no, it does not - the 500 is the priority of the package from that repository08:36
anliah, ok08:40
anliIf I have a script of apt commands that forces packages each to a certain version, will that script stop to work after a while? Like the packages are removed when old or something.08:41
ducasseyou shouldn't depend on a particular version of a package remaining in the repo, no (unless if you maintain that repo yourself). as new versions are added the older are removed.08:44
anliIs there an archive repo that holds older versions?08:45
anliarchive.org maybe :)08:45
anliI try to address the problem of software needing exact versions to build08:46
anliOr the fact that a command can have got bugs from a certain version and on08:46

sa_I've an ubuntu box, suddenly ssh with hostname fails with "ssh: Could not resolve hostname <hname> Name or service not known", any clue?08:48

Rainyavielanli: You must have asked questions before and didn't get an answer it would be tough to read back what was your original question08:49
Rainyavielanli: I am asking you to ask the question again ?08:51
Shabbysheiksa_: have you added the box in question to the /etc/hosts file of your pc?08:52
sa_Shabbysheik: I've not modified /etc/hosts file, just checked with ls -l command "-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 220 Nov 15  2017 /etc/hosts"08:54
Shabbysheiksa_: then you just need to add your ubuntu box to your hosts file and you are all set08:55
RainyavielYou should never randomly edit that file sa_08:55
Shabbysheikwhy not?08:56
Shabbysheikthat file is where you define your hosts08:56
RainyavielHe can't access by IP?08:56
RainyavielOr is this too make sure there is a friendlier name to access locally?08:57
Shabbysheikim sure he can, but he wants to use names, that is where you define them08:57
sa_I can ssh with ip, but only it is failing with hostname(earlier it used to work)08:58

ErnstI have a problem with my screens. I was earlier at my work so I installed steam. One of them 3D games good stuk. If I login as a guest the three screens in 0° is there no problem. If i change one of them, that screen goes weird. I am using 16.04 64, AMD screen (default Ubuntu driver). I there anyone here to help me? How can I solve this?09:02

MysticReverieHi. Is there an option to make my windows 10 in vitual box constantly stay offline. never connect under any cirumstance?09:11
deemMysticReverie: Remove the ethernet adapter09:12
anliRainyaviel: The question was if there is a repo that holds historical versions09:12
anli(or archive is maybe the correct term)09:13
Shabbysheikanli: if it is older ubuntu pacakges you want then search launchpad.net/ubuntu09:14
=== EriC^ is now known as EriC^^
ducasseanli: the 'main' repo contains the version of the package that release was originally released with09:16
anliSo its not an apt source then?09:18
RainyavielIt's more about what server holds it09:18
anliyes, but if it is an apt source, you can specify which version you want to run by just running an apt command09:19
Rainyavielanli: Have you actually visited launchpad.net/ubuntu09:20
RainyavielAnd it hasn't accomplish what you looking for?09:20
anliIf it is a historical apt source, then it is the solution to my question :)09:21
RainyavielI don't think I ever come across one distro, me being distro jumping, that actually hold code from back when09:21
RainyavielSo for the source, you need apt source for programming purpose?09:22
anliI would prefer to just have a certain version of commands and libraries so I have a known state before building09:22
Shabbysheikanli: so wget the package you want from launchpad and then dpkg to install, you are getting very hung up on this apt thing09:23
anliThe thing is that I want to run a script that is resetting the system to that state09:23
MysticReveriedeem,  but how about the wifi also?09:23
anliAlso, if I already have the correct version, that script should not download anything09:23
MysticReverieare they easy to remove?09:23
ShabbysheikMysticReverie: if you remove the virtual interfaces like deem said then it will not be able to connect09:25
deemMysticReverie: virtualbox does not care about how your host connects to the internet. Just remove all internet capable devices from your vm and you're good to go09:27
MysticReverieok, i will try thanks09:28
guivercanli: apt is built around using the latest packages; but if you want to build for a specific versions - why not package as a snap?  (libs etc are stored in the same ~squashfs & get used instead of systems...09:28
RainyavielYou know, guiverc, I am glad you spoke09:29
anliOn the contrary, you can specify the version of a package using apt09:29
RainyavielHow other people who need help09:29
RainyavielI think this guy is waste of time09:29
anlithats rude, that comment is a waste of bandwidth09:30
guivercyeah, you can add rules to require specific version (which create dep.issues that stop upgrades...) but it's not [in my opinion] why the dep rules were made09:31
pragomeram I seeing it right, that gthumb cannot tag photos with colors (like green, red, blue, yellow, aso) ?09:31
RainyavielSeems to me that you got a plenty of answers to use your brain, I understand where things can be confusing, but it doesn't seem you actually make an effort yourself09:31
anliI am confused about you answering without having an answer :)09:32
ducasseRainyaviel: ok, keep comments like that to yourself, please09:32
anliMaybe my comment is like that as well09:32
anliIt could not been said in a polite way, I think09:32
Rainyavielanli: 04:46 < anli> I try to address the problem of software needing exact versions to build09:32
Rainyaviel04:49 < Rainyaviel> anli: You must have asked questions before and didn't get an answer it would be tough to read back what was your original question09:33
sa_Deb packages can be pulled from repository URL’s mentioned in SourcesList. For e.g. I created a ‘hello’ dkms deb package and I see already there other ‘hello’ package exist in launchpad. Contents-wise both are different, but the package name is same. Is there any way to specify specifically pull from a particular repository URL while installing the package using “sudo apt-get install”?09:33
anliI know, it is hard to convey an idea in one sentence. What I want in more detail is to be able to build a certain piece of software with exact the same setup as another person that successfully built that software09:33
ErnstRainyaviel: I understand I will rewrite my question. I am using 3 screen  standing them 90° (1080x1920) next to eachonder.09:34
ErnstSince I install Stream games software my screens in 90° will not let me login. If i login as a guest in 1920x1080 is there no problem. What happend that caused this problem and how can I solve it. So, I need those 3 screens working in 90°.09:34
Rainyaviel05:12 < anli> Rainyaviel: The question was if there is a repo that holds historical versions09:34
anliThat is still a good question, I can scroll up myself09:35

amharrislotuspsychje: I don't have the hardware on hand.  A friend whom I've been slowly getting into OSS and software development is keen to get one and switch from Windows entirely, but the Hades/Vega chipset is so fresh on the market that support is scarce; so he's waiting until it's supported before getting one.10:21

brymanyone familiar with postfix?10:28
amharrisbrym: I'm no expert, and it's been a long time since I last used it, but what's up?10:29
brymrunning it on a vm through roundcube, and rc won't get past the virtual gateway10:30
brymi've allowed the vm on ufw, but it keeps throwing authentication errors10:30
amharrisbrym: It's a shame I don't have access to have a look at the config at work, as it's Ubuntu, Postfix, and Roundcube as the setup.10:30
amharrisI'll have a think.10:31
brymmuch appreciated10:31
Rainyavielbrym: I am bit but it's been awhile10:31
RainyavielI got two servers running postfix10:32
RainyavielBut, when I say awhile, I mean rougly a year10:32
brymthe errors are mostly on the roundcube side if i'm honest. the installer itself. i tested sendmail earlier from terminal, and it works fine. rc says smtp doesn't accept authentication.10:33
blackflowbrym: wait, postfix is running in the VM?10:33
blackflowand so is RoundCube?10:33
RainyavielI use roundcube10:33
brymall through the vm10:33
blackflowso roundcube has to be configured for smtp at aka localhost?10:34
brymme too, but until now, always through cpanel10:34
RainyavielI c10:34
Rainyavielblackflow: What is the MTA?10:35
brymblackflow: yes, and i've checked both config files, and they both contain the hostname and localhost10:35
brymmail transfer agent10:35
amharrisbrym: What are the authentication errors you're seeing, to be clear?10:35
blackflowbrym: okay so I don't understand the error. what exactly is the error?10:36
Rainyavielblackflow: Pastebin10:37
lotuspsychje!postfix | brym see also10:37
ubottubrym see also: postfix is the default !MTA and !MDA on Ubuntu. For help, read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Postfix and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PostfixBasicSetupHowto - See also !MailServer10:37
brymamharris: for smtp - authentication error. smtp doesn't support authentication. for imap: login failed from the virtual gateway. couldn't connect to localhost:14310:37
Rainyavielblackflow: I will help you10:37
lotuspsychjeRainyaviel: stop that please10:38
blackflowbrym: so did you actually configure postfix for sasl?10:38
Rainyavielblackflow: What is important is your setup10:38
ikoniaRainyaviel: blackflow is not looking for help10:38
blackflowikonia: ?10:38
blackflowoh... I got them on ignore.... lol what are they saying.10:38
lotuspsychjeikonia: he was copy pasting everyone earlier10:39
ikoniablackflow: offering help over and over, just making it clear to shut the noise down10:39
ikonialotuspsychje: yes, I'm aware10:39
Rainyavielikonia: I wanted to help blackflow and you ask him to ignore me ikonia10:39
RainyavielThat is, I would never see10:39
ikoniaRainyaviel: he isn't looking for help, and he ignored you for your behaviour earlier, drop the topic10:39
RainyavielHe is using postfix10:40
ikoniacorrect he does use postfix10:40
brymblackflow: not specifically. i let apt install it, and stepped through a few items here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-postfix-on-ubuntu-16-0410:40
brymblackflow: followed up to step 5, since i intended to use roundcube as opposed to s-nail10:40
blackflowbrym: that tutorial doesn't seem to set up SASL (via Dovecot) and you need it. lemme see if RC can work without sasl10:40
RainyavielI understand what is happening10:41
RainyavielYou guys shut me up, so crowds that ikonia knows can help10:41
RainyavielI got it10:41
blackflowbrym: see if setting smtp_user and smtp_password to NULL will then not try authentication.10:41
blackflowbrym: also, this might be more suitable in #ubuntu-server (I'm there)10:42
brymblackflow: hmm... good shout. i didn't consider that. for both negating authentication and #ubuntu-server :p10:42
blackflowbrym: yeah, default config uses %u and %p from RC login credentials10:43
brymblackflow: excellent, smtp works now. than you! however, imap still has the same error. whether i include the domain name or not with user10:47
blackflowbrym: that requires setting up Dovecot with proper userdb and passdb10:48
brymyeah, i tried apt for that last night, but it didn't find anything. i'll dig further for that. it's worth noting i did try mapping postfix to the vm's user account. but that threw an error too, so i commented it out for now.10:49
brymas part of the digital ocean steps10:49
brymwhen i ran postfix check, it told me the entry was unused10:50
blackflowbrym: postfix is for SMTP, not IMAP, and you don't need auth for local usage (via localhost or with local sendmail binary)10:50
brymblackflow: ah, yeah that makes sense10:50
blackflowbrym: but you do have to set it up to allow mynetworks (defining only localhost) and deny all else, OR... make it NOT accessible via public IP (actually, do AND, not OR, for better security)10:51
blackflowbrym: #postfix is very helpful if you get stuck, and there's also #dovecot.10:51
brymblackflow: on AND not OR, yep, that's how I write most of my basic conditionals in JS. making sure all requirements are met.10:53
sa___Whenever I start Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, the boot process gets stuck at "Stopping System V runlevel compatibility", what could be the reasons?10:54
blackflowbrym: yah, but what I meant was, configure it both to listen only on, and to allow only to send mail (for permit_mynetworks)10:56
oerhekssa___, looking at that error, is this a VM or bare metal?10:57
brymblackflow: got it. thanks again for your help/pointers10:57
blackflowbrym: yw10:57

ask-ygU5AP56question, regarding system tray and Unity11:11
ask-ygU5AP56Unity 7, Ubuntu 18.0411:11
ask-ygU5AP56some apps (vokoscreen, qt, battle.net, wine) show system tray icons in the tray, some (Nicotine, pygtk)11:11
ask-ygU5AP56how to make the ones that don't, do?11:12
ppfask-ygU5AP56: talk to their developers11:13
ask-ygU5AP56ppf, I think the app I refer to is not developed; it worked fine in 16.0411:13
ask-ygU5AP56ppf, so what's the issue, and how else can it be resolved, other than talking to the app developers?11:13
ask-ygU5AP56it did work in older version of Ubuntu11:13
ppfask-ygU5AP56: well, if the program is dead and doesn't support the unity notification are then there's not much you can do11:14
ask-ygU5AP56ppf, yeah but unity notification, is that something special, or does it work via some generic bus?11:14
ppfyou can dig up the source and fix it yourself if you are such inclined11:14
ask-ygU5AP56ppf, like mentioned, app like vokoscreen works fine11:14
ask-ygU5AP56ppf, sure, if it's an easy fix; it's a python app anyway11:14
ask-ygU5AP56ppf, vokoscreen hardly is a native Ubuntu app; neither is Battle.Net ran through wine11:15
ask-ygU5AP56both show icons fine.11:15
ask-ygU5AP56so, what do they have, that the nicotine app is missing?11:15
ppfthey probably implement it correctly then11:15
ppfwhich the others don't11:15
ask-ygU5AP56what changed in Ubuntu Unity tray between 16.04 and 18.04 that made nicotine stop working, and the others continue?11:16
ask-ygU5AP56so what is it then, the implemented bit11:16
ask-ygU5AP56what's missing?11:16
ppfi don't know the applications, so i don't know that answer11:16
ask-ygU5AP56well, it's a generic tray like you mentioned11:16
ask-ygU5AP56it's an ubuntu tray question more so11:16
tomreynunity is not supported on 18.04 here. we don't know, talk to the developers of the apps you are treying to get to work, and to the people wwho continue to maintain unity.11:17
tomreyngood luck!11:17
effortDeeim on 16.04 any need for me to upgrade?11:17

d1rewolfhi guys. I've had two events over the past 24 hours when, after resuming by opening my laptop lid, root is mount ro. I worry I may not be suspending correctly, although I'm using the defaults for logind on Ubuntu 18.04. any ideas what might be causing this or what I should look for?12:56
compdocalthough, I havent actually tried the new gnome desktop with xrpd12:56
compdocUFC ^12:57
UFChow can i connect to a windows share then from xfce ?12:57
compdochas to be a '2D' desktop12:57
maddisonHi compdoc,  I'm back.  And it did not work12:59
UFCthe terminal emulator doesnt even work in xrdp13:01
maddisonessentially the problem comes up if (from the advanced options in the GRUB) I use the first option "Ubuntu, with Linux 4.15.0-23" normal or recovery13:01
UFCi have no terminal>13:01
compdocmaddison, you had an encrypted drive that you erased?13:03
maddisonbut if I use the 3rd option "Ubuntu, with Linux 4.15.0-20".  The computer boots normally sending me almost immediately to the verification screen to unlock the HDD and then to the user log in13:03
maddisonyes, an external HDD that I was using for my OS.  Because my internal HDD crashed.13:04
compdocdo you still bot it?13:04
BluesKajUFC, alt+F2 type console13:04
compdocwheres the OS now?13:04
maddisonBut I've replaced the internal with another one. And loaded a clean linux onto it.13:05
d1rewolfactually, it just remounted as ro. "Buffer I/O error on dev dm-1, logical block 57704448, lost sync page write". could this be a bad disk?13:05
d1rewolfI'd be surprised..it's a relatively new ssd13:06
pax_rhoswhat's the difference between a gzipped stream and a gzipped file with the same stream?13:06
maddisonI was able to boot from the external up until 2 days ago, when I used the shred command on it.  To turn it back into a mass storage drive13:06
compdocBluesKaj, what do you want maddison to try?13:07
maddisonand I waited for almost a week of booting from the internal HDD before I shredded the external13:07
memphistod1rewolf: bad disk13:09
maddisonAnd for that week, any time I booted I didn't have to use the advance options in the GRUB.  I could just enter or wait for the GRUB counter13:09

mrproperYesterday I installed Ubuntu server 18.04 and setup KVM on it. Things were working fine until at some point, and I'm not sure what caused it, the system stopped resolving DNS. I was messing around with iptables at the time to setup port forwarding into my KVM guests so that may have been what broke it. But do you happen to know of any documentation which explains how to troubleshoot this or provide ideas?13:28
nostroradeem: because kubernetes/rancher requirements is Docker 17.0313:28
mrproperI don't have my system around right now so admittedly, I'm limited on what I can do at this moment.13:28
leftyfbmrproper: flush iptables13:29
leftyfbmrproper: that's how you start to troubleshoot13:29
mrproperleftyfb, Makes sense. Thank you!13:29

jimmaddison, thought you might be here... what did you find out?13:58
zprdI run a xenial and bionic lxc containers, xenial, play snice and uses correctly the hosts configured dns server, while bionic is a bad boy and uses
zprdany chance to get the xenial behavior on bionic?13:59
jimuses as what?13:59
zprdas nameserver13:59
zprdmetinoed in /etc/resolv.conf13:59
jimdoes that ubuntu have a dns server running?14:00
zprdthe container?14:00
jimwell the bionic one14:00
zprdit's a verbatim container14:00
blackflowzprd: what's in your container's /etc/resolv.conf?14:01
zprd cat /etc/resolv.conf14:01
leftyfbzprd: bionic uses netplan now for network configuration.14:01
zprd# run "systemd-resolve --status" to see details about the actual nameservers.14:01
blackflowzprd: that's in the container?14:01
jimdoes your container have net? can it ping its gateway by its numeric IP?14:01
blackflowyes what, to me or jim :)14:02
zprdit has network14:02
zprdping is ok14:02
leftyfbzprd: Ubuntu 18.04 uses systemd-resolved for DNS14:02
jimzprd, ok, try: ping yahoo.com14:02
leftyfbzprd: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/what-s-new-in-ubuntu-18-0414:02
leftyfbzprd: look up "Default DNS Resolver"14:02
zprdping is ok14:03
jimeven by name?14:03
leftyfbjim: They're asking aobut where to configure DNS. Not about general network issues or pinging14:03
zprdI need it to resolve local addresses, and use the local dns server, ie use the hosts onw as the xenial does14:03
leftyfbzprd: use /etc/systemd/resolved.conf14:03
jimI'm trying to establish where the problem is, and if he does have net, that makes it easier, because we know he can install packages, and we know he can contact termbin.com (if you have nc installed, you can pastebin the output of an arbitrary command, for example ls -CF if you run it like this: ls -CF | nc termbin.com 9999)14:04
leftyfbjim: we've already established where the problem is in his first question14:05
zprdjim: even by name14:05
zprdping works fine14:05
blackflowtoo much confusing advice given here, and we don't even have the actual problem properly defined it seems. if ping works by name, then what's the problem wiht the dns.14:05
zprdso at this point I conclude that after creating a container of bionic, I should configure manually /etc/systemd/resolved.conf14:05
blackflow(assuming you tested from within the container)14:06
leftyfbhe's looking where to configure DNS on a bionic client14:06
leftyfbzprd: bingo14:06
blackflowwhat does "configure DNS" mean here. it's a bit vague.14:06
jimok zprd, can you run: cat /etc/network/interfaces | nc termbin.com 999914:06
blackflowset up nameservers?14:06
zprdblackflow: container does not pick local dns server, as configure by the lxc host14:06
blackflowzprd: what local dns server. you have bind/unbound/something-else running in the container?14:07
maddisonjim, hi...   are you talking about the freezing problem I was having14:07
zprdjim: I have no such file in this container14:07
jimmaddison, hi, yeah14:07
leftyfbzprd: does configuring your local DNS server in /etc/systemd/resolved.conf solve your issue?14:08
jimzprd, that's interesting... what mechanism is being used to set up your net14:08
leftyfbjim: containers by default are NAT'd14:08
jimleftyfb, does that happen outside the container?14:09
maddisonyeah, I think I've resolved that issue.  I think it was being caused by running the OS off the external HDD.  Because I haven't really had the problem since installing linux on the new internal hdd14:09
leftyfbjim: it's configured outside the container, yes. But he is not asking for help with that at all. He only wanted to know where to configure your local DNS server in bionic. I told him. The problem should be resolved at this point.14:09
jimmaddison, ok, so you went through a full install on the other hd?14:09
maddisonBut I'm now having another problem, which I think has to do with the main kernal14:10
jimmaddison, what's the problem you're having?14:11
maddisonafter a few days of making sure the internal was working.  I decided to erase the external, using the shred command, to turn it back into the mass storage drive I intended it to be14:11
jimleftyfb, well the resolvconf package adds syntax to the interfaces file, which he doesn't have in the container14:12
leftyfbjim: except bionic doesn't use resolvconf, not does it utilize the interfaces file by default14:12
leftyfbjim: bionic uses netplan for networking management and systemd-resolved for DNS by default14:13
zprdjim: well, configuration using lxbr0, nothing fancy14:13
jimok, then my question from before applies: by what mechanism is the network set up? in the container, is there a whole distribution installation, including kernel and grub?14:14
maddisonwhen I boot the pc normally, instead of being prompted to unlock my hdd.  I'm being sent to initramfs and I getting a message that essentially says that the /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root does not exisst14:14
zprdleftyfb: I am not familiar with systemd-resolved, Ill try setting it up but the ideal would be a template option, on lxc-create14:14
jimok, hadn't heard of netplan before14:14
leftyfbjim: netplan. As for whether or not the container is NAT'd or bridged, that's in the hosts lxc/d config14:14
zprdme neather14:14
blackflowjim: containers are OS level virtualization, kernels and grub have no meaning in them14:15
jimblackflow, so a container's software uses the host's kernel?14:15
leftyfbzprd: would you prefer to just have the container bridged an not NAT'd? That way if you set it to DHCP, it gets all the same networking configs as bare metal machines on your network?14:15
leftyfbjim: correct14:15
zprdno, nated is ok, name resolution though is important14:16
jimand, is there a separate netplan for host and contained os?14:16
maddisonbut if I use the advanced option in the grub and select another kernel, everything boots as it should14:16
blackflowjim: "containers" are just namespaces in PIDs, user IDs, filesystem view, ...14:17
rud0lfhmm some "apt install" ask for confirmation, some not14:17
rud0lfwhat's the criteria? archive size?14:17
jimblackflow, understood... I'm still curious whether the contained os gets "its own" netplan, or whether the networking for both the host and the container are setup by the host's netplan?14:18
blackflowjim: netplan is just configuration abstraction, and runs as a systemd generator (a bit wrongly but eh). it doesn't per se do any networking API14:19
leftyfbjim: it does. It's a normal ubuntu OS that uses a shared kernel14:19
zprdwoh, is there a way to set a dns server using systemd-resolve?14:20
zprdI mean command line14:20
leftyfbzprd: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Domain_name_resolution#Systemd-resolved14:20
zprdI on that page14:20
jimleftyfb, so the first of the two alternatives?14:21
leftyfbjim: correct14:21
blackflowzprd: are you asking "is there a way to specify teh resolver to use for systemd-resolved"? if so, yes, /etc/systemd/resolved.conf, DNS and FallbackDNS directives. otherwise systemd-resolver is NOT a DNS server. it's just a caching forwarder, it requires a proper resolver elsewhere.14:22
leftyfbzprd: as I told you before, edit the /etc/systemd-resolved.conf and add your DNS server's ip after DNS= just like that link shows you14:22
jimso host gets a netplan, contained guest gets a (different) netplan, that likely uses the host's networking14:22
jimwhen did netplan first happen? is it a part of something larger?14:22
zprdleftyfb: I did that , and it is not working14:22
blackflowjim: with 17.1014:23
leftyfbzprd: reboot14:23
leftyfbzprd: or restart the systemd-resolved service14:23
leftyfbit's a container, rebooting is literally seconds14:23
jimwhat's the codename on 17.10?14:24
zprdmust be ok for interactive test, but I need somthing automatic14:24
zprdanyways, even after reboot, it fails to resolve local address14:24
zprdalright that was the domain name, of this lan, which is '.local'14:26
zprdstill have to look into easier solution14:26
zprd:D no not bluera14:26
blackflowah see, .local is reserved for mDNS and behaves a bit differently, I think resolved is even refusing to resolve those?14:27
zprdI lmow14:27
jimzprd, what do you have to do to get resolving working after reboot?14:27
zprdno reboot, service restart14:28
blackflowIs it time now to finally recommend what I usually do, drop systemd-resolved, set up unbound and a proper, recursive caching resolver that's also authoritative, in your lan, what has no opinions about .local being reserved?  :)14:28
zprdnot a clean solution for dymaically created containers14:28
blackflowif you have a resolver in your network, just specify it in a static /etc/resolv.conf, disable systemd-resolved.service compeltely and be done with it.14:29
leftyfbzprd: so did it work?14:29
zprdyes, configureing resolved works14:29
leftyfbzprd: so the automated way would be with a script, like a shell script. Or something like ansible. Or just don't do NAT :)14:30
zprdI'd rather avoid this kind of special configuration, with a bunch of if [ bionic]14:31
zprdI use a lxc for integration tests14:31
zprdwith a set of distros and versions14:32
blackflowit's _one_ sed call per /etc/systemd/resolved.conf, per installation. how hard can that be.14:32
jimmaddison, we're in ##linux-beginners if you'd like to speak to us... there are questions there pending for you14:32
leftyfbzprd: ansible has hooks for lxc/lxd14:32
leftyfbzprd: btw, you should be using lxd from snap. It's the latest and best.14:32
zprdlxd? no not yet14:32
zprdthis should be run on debian and ubuntu hosts14:33
Guest83I have a strange issue14:33
leftyfbzprd: snap and lxd are available in the official debian repos14:33
Guest83I put in fstab the UUID of the partition i want to boot on14:33
Guest83but the system boot on another partition14:33
Guest83on another hard drive14:34
Guest83even I choose the right parition in GRUB14:34
zprdleftyfb: why lxd?14:34
blackflowzprd: because it automates a lot of things and makes container management easier.  LXC is a lot of manual work, in comparison.14:35
leftyfbblackflow: damn you, I was typing that but more long-winded :)14:35
leftyfbzprd: things like snapshots and live migration14:36
blackflownative ZFS support even!14:36
leftyfbyeah, to the point they REALLY want you to use ZFS14:37
zprdokay, not ready for that yet, I;d rather use offical packages on deiban hosts14:37
blackflowZFS all the things.14:37
leftyfbzprd: again, snapd and lxd are official packages in debian14:37
zprdI heard, still habits of apt, for better updatees and ugprades14:38
zprdthat sticks in my work14:39
leftyfbzprd: snapd packages are upgraded automatically, but ok14:39
zprdleftyfb: wht do you mean by automatically?14:40
leftyfbzprd: snap packages automatically update14:41
=== RtMF is now known as Rainbow|___
zprdleftyfb: so do you wht version you run at a precise moment?14:42
zprdleftyfb: the day after maybe another version is running?14:42
zprd(suppose lxd)14:42
leftyfbzprd: if a new version is released to the snap store, yes14:43
zprdoh not really wanted behavior, but I guess it is configurable14:43
leftyfbI'm running lxd version 3.2 at the moment14:43
blackflowhmm, that's not something I'd prefer actually... any way to disable automatic snap updates? can't seem to find one, and it appears the devs don't want to give us that choice..... all of a sudden I totally dislike snaps.14:43
leftyfbblackflow: I'm not sure that there is14:44
blackflowthat's very bad.14:44
zprdyeah ok, not for lxd production then14:44
zprdgood for testing beta versions14:44
leftyfbzprd: it's not an lxd issue. It's snapd14:44
zprdyes, I misworded14:45

qwebirc46555guys i need a way to change my undetected resolution cause screen is so close14:58
Guest83leftyfb how can I see if the EFI is the matter? and when I checked sys on sda2 the folder is empty. Isn't it a little bit strange ?14:58
leftyfbvavkamil: you have an invalid /etc/rc.local15:00
vavkamilleftyfb, thank you I missed that15:01
vavkamilwas debugging mysql and teamspeak so far15:01
WieGehtsGuest83 how did you move you root filesystem if i may ask? have you tried booting from the grub command line pointing to the new root/15:01
leftyfbthe error in the screenshot tells you the problem15:01
Guest83WIeGehts. using GParted I copied the partition from sdb to sda15:02
Guest83I havent tried grub command line15:02
WieGehtstry booting from the command line with the root set to your new /15:04
qwebirc46555how can i change my resolution? i only have 1 option availiable and its wrong15:04
Guest83WieGehts but I'm a little bit worried. The sys folder in sda is empty15:04
Guest83I dont know how to boot from command line grub15:04
WieGehtsguest83 you know something here personally i would use rsync when moving partitions15:05
Guest83I could try this but I dont know how to rsyn a whole partition with an OS15:06
WieGehtsGuest83 never mind that, /sys is supposed to be empty i think if that root filesystem is not currently running if i am not mistaken so is /dev and /run. anyway reboot your system and when grub menu pops up press esc and i might be able to walk you through from there15:12
Guest83ok lets try15:13
Guest83WieGehts I'm on the grub command line15:15
Guest83grub version 2.0215:15
WieGehtsokay first things first, lets try to identify where your kernel is, type ls and then tab and tell me what you see15:17
Guest83ls lsacpi lscoreboot lsefi lsefimmap lsefisystab lsfonts lsmmap lsmod lspci lssal WieGehts15:18

WieGehtsokay so to be clear you want to boot from you new partition which is sda2 am i right?15:21
Guest83the system was installed on sdb515:21
Guest83and now I want to put the OS on the little drive and the data on the bigger one15:22
Guest83so sda2 is the copied partition from sdb515:22
Guest83and now I want to have sda2 working and then delete sdb515:22
WieGehtsokay i see. type this ls (hd1,gpt2)/ and then enter15:25
Guest83Partition hd1 gpt2 : Type de système de fichiers ext* - Etiquette "Ubuntu-OS" Derniere modification jeudi 12/07/2018 15.04.57 UUID 20aa9462 26ec 49c9 8a71 6c52f832e9e7 - La partition commence à 52525 Kio - Taille totale 249533440 Kio15:30

WieGehtsokay. now type this initrd (hd1,gpt2)/initrd.img  then enter. then type boot then enter.15:39
Guest83WieGehts something happen15:39
Guest83i guess im booting15:40
Guest83OH YEAH15:40
Guest83Im on dev/sda215:40
Guest83I have created a test folder15:40
Guest83on the desktop to identify it15:40
Guest83WieGehts I'm on dev/sda2 on the desktop15:41
WieGehtsokay so what this confirms is that, when you changed the root. you didnt update your grub configuration15:41
Guest83I never changed the root15:42
Guest83after copying the parition i have only launch update-grub15:42
Guest83WHat am I suppose to do now?15:42
Guest83WieGehts big thanks already. I can see the copied partition is working15:43
WieGehtsokay. but you did say you boot into the old partition right?15:45
WieGehtswhat does your grub menu look like by the way?15:45
Guest83WieGehts when the computer start yes. Even if i Choose Ubuntu 18 on dev/sda2 from grub menu15:45
WieGehtsyes what options are there. how do they appear?15:46
Guest83Ubuntu ; Advanced Options for Ubuntu, Ubuntu 18.04 (on /dev/sda2) Advanced options for Ubuntu 18.04 (on /dev/sda2) WieGehts15:46
Guest83I could reboot to verify it15:48
WixyHi. After running "sysctl -w fs.file-max=100000" I still see the limit of file descriptors is 4096, according to "ulimit -Hn". What am I missing?15:49
WieGehtsokay. do you still have that old drive attached to your system and does it still have that root filesystem?15:49
WieGehtsinfact reboot and when you are at the grub menu, move to select the first entry you and press e15:50
Guest83in Folders explorer i dont see the sdb2 partition15:51
Guest83ok lets go reboot15:51
Guest83now I know how boot on sda2 manually15:51

Guest83I see setparams 'Ubuntu' WieGehts15:54
WieGehtsokay. make sure not to type in any letters by mistake. look for where it says linux etc and see if that command looks anything like the options you typed to boot your system earlier?15:55
WieGehtswhat are the differences if you can spot them15:56
Guest83WieGehts I see 3 times the same UUID15:56
Guest83It's the sdb5 one15:57
Guest83set root ='hd1,mdos5'15:57
Guest83--hint-bios = hd1,msdos515:57
Guest83dos5 XXXXX (there the UUID of de/sdb515:58
Guest83--set=root XXXX (UUID sbd5)15:58
Guest83linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.15.0-23-generic root=UUID=XXXXX (again sdb5 UUID))15:59
WieGehtsokay. so that confirms something here when you updated you grub configuration like you said, since you ran that command in the sda5 root environment it directly made the correct assignment of setting things as it did. what it means now is you need to boot into the sda2 environment like you did before and run grub to set things the way you supposedl16:00
WieGehtsy want them to. does that make sense? but there is a catch16:00
Guest83initrd /boot/initrd.img-4.15.0-23-generic16:00
WieGehtsguest83 okay thats enough info16:00
Guest83So I boot sda2 and login normally into the desktop and then open the terminal?16:01
=== nat_ is now known as Natkeeran
Guest83WieGehts I used sudo update-grub when I was on sdb516:02
WieGehtsdo you understand what i said here about there being a catch? what i mean by that is like another user identified earlier to you is that  that efi partition and as confirmed by the information you just gave me. you need to put that efi partition into consideration when now updating grub on sda2 or things will get messed really bad. do you understan16:03
Guest83I understand16:05
WieGehtsokay so using what i already showed you earlier boot into sda216:05

SirNapkin1334so, I'm not at my computer, but I have a problem with booting ubuntu from a USB.16:11

SirNapkin1334basically, I want to make a persistent USB16:11
compdocwhat happens?16:12
WieGehtsokay what are its contents? and also tell me the contents of /boot , /boot/grub16:12
SirNapkin1334however, when making one with LiveLinux Creator, ubuntu is incredibly laggy16:12
SirNapkin1334with a non-persistent USB, ubuntu is very speedy and I do enjoy it16:12
SirNapkin1334but with persistence, it's very slow, and programs don't work16:12
sylarioProbably the write speed of the USB stick16:13
SirNapkin1334it's a new one, and it's very good16:13
SirNapkin1334what's the recommended minimum write speed?16:14
Guest83boot grub16:14
SirNapkin1334for a persistent usb16:14
Guest83boot efi16:15
Guest83boot 1st then boot grub then boot efi16:16

sylarioIdk, a modern HDD is probably around 200MB/s16:17
Guest83(cant it try to run update-grub2 from the current sda2 ? May it fix the solution ?)16:17

lance_So, nobody's here, yet all the names?16:27
lance_oh hi agrippa16:27
agrippazwhat's shakin?16:27
WieGehtsguest83 okay so the here is deal. that update-grub2 is just a front end for this command grub-install. now you could run that yes, but personally what you need to understand is grub-install needs certain images to run and in this particular case they maybe installed in /boot or /boot/eif (most probably the best here) so the command i would run is t16:27
WieGehtshis grub-install --efi-directory=/boot/efi. how ever just to be safe boot ubuntu as sda5 right enter this command on terminal grub-mkrescue -o grub.iso and put that iso on a removable. thats a backup incase things go south. now you might then reenter sda2 and run your update command and if that fails. try mine grub-install etc. but like i said with16:27
WieGehts knowlegde go online and read afew and then do what i told you to be safe and then hit me up when you done with the outcome. goodluck16:27
lance_I don't have any problems, I just have never used this program before. Really takes me back. Reminds me of 199816:27

lance_ok. I'll leave you to get to it16:32
Guest83WieGehts the iso file could be on any USB key with other file or need empty usb key?16:33
WieGehtsguest83 no. grub-install --efi-directory=/boot/efi /dev/sda. but do run the update-grub2 first. its up to you really. also make sure you made the rescue iso like i told you in sda5 environment. you might just read a few articles online to be sure whats safer update etc or grub-install on ubuntu16:34
=== freepbx145 is now known as scheder
WieGehtsguest83 yes retrieve it as it is on any media be it a partition or pen drive etc so you burn it if you ever need it.16:35

Guest83WieGehts Ok ty. just for try I put e on Ubuntu dev:sda2 on Grub menu16:38

Guest83WieGehts  what if i boot on sda2 as you say then destroy sdb5 partition and update grub2?16:42
WieGehtsfinal note here. in the future do not do efi partitions especially when you are not going to need to dual boot win along linux. just go MBR/bios compatibility if you can and keep everything on one partition unless you absolutely need to do otherwise. also just read this article here https://www.happyassassin.net/2014/01/25/uefi-boot-how-does-that-a16:46

caffeinethePOPI think so.. yeah basically I installed awesome wm, and it wouldn't be there in the login options, so.. they asked me to do this18:59
caffeinethePOPyes it is @cristian_c18:59
caffeinethePOPemm, well, I googled it, and some of the answers included that19:00
caffeinethePOPso-they would be the ppl who answered the question19:01
kus_Hi, I used to run redmine which is a ruby project on Ubuntu server artful. When I upgraded to bionic, it seems that rake and bundle still think they need to be on ruby 2.3 but ruby 2.3 no longer exists. What should I do?19:01
kus_ruby --version gives me ruby 2.5.1p57 (2018-03-29 revision 63029) [x86_64-linux-gnu]19:01
rosco_yWhat's a good way to install mysql?19:03
kus_on a development machine?19:04
rosco_ykus_: ty, yes19:05
rosco_yI'm concidering using a package manager, or a download from Oracle19:06
kus_I would strongly recommend devilbox if you're doing development19:06
rosco_yoh, postgres.  I was concidering postgres, but I'm already familiar with mysql.19:07
kus_devilbox is just a docker-compose thing19:07
kus_you can have both mysql and postgresql19:07
rosco_ykus_: that is intertersting.  what is a docker-compose thing?19:08
CarlFKrosco_y: package manager19:08
rosco_ywow.  I'll look into that.  Thanks!19:08
kus_rosco_y, you wouldn't do this on a server though. only for local development so you can get going quickly19:09
kus_especially if you use PHP19:09
CarlFKpackages get security updates and stuff.  all the other options mean more to maintain later19:09
CarlFK...more work...19:09
kus_CarlFK, I installed redmine using package and upgrading the distro from artful to bionic broke it19:10
rosco_yCarlFK: ty.  I think I'd be fine if I could just install mysql server and set up the admin and a user password.19:10
rosco_yI'm just stand-alone, I don't need much.19:10
kus_rosco_y, yeah you can definitely do sudo apt install mysql-server mysql-client19:11
rosco_yI'm generating puzzles, and I want to store them19:11
rosco_ythanks kus_, my requirements are very minamal.  I just want to define my tables and use them--as I said, I like mysql :)19:11
kus_although you should probably do sudo apt install mariadb-server mariadb-client19:11
rosco_yI don't need to learn new things (there's enough work in keeping up with what I "know")19:12

gogetaguest_, from what i can see yea the 520 is pretty terrable in ubuntu19:31
gogetaguest_, from what i can see gnome itsself is eating up your gpu19:33
gogetaguest_, there is a workaround it seems gnome is not enabling your hardware driver19:36
gogetaguest_, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nux/+bug/1767468 the 6th post has a workaround19:36

guest_i am using ubuntu 18.0419:40
gogetaguest_, you upgraded to 18.04 i asssume19:40

gogetaBashing-om, causing a issue19:41
Bashing-omgogeta: :) I look over your shoulder - see what I can learn .19:42
gogetaguest_, the command will be sudo rm /etc/X11/Xsession.d/50_check_unity_support19:42
guest_cannot remove '/etc/X11/Xsession.d/50_check_unity_support': No such file or directory19:42
gogetaguest_, then you dont have the leftover file19:43
gogetaguest_, it could just be a issue of gnome using to much of you gpu19:43
gogetaBashing-om, he said he cant even get 480p video out of a 520 intel chip19:44
guest_gogeta: thanks , i will install another DM19:44
gogetaguest_, echo $LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE    do you get a 1 or 019:46
gogetaguest_, well then it is using your gpu19:48
guest_gogeta: blank means 0 ?19:48
gogetaguest_, yea that means its not in fallback its just using that mutch of your system19:48
guest_gogeta: it is a gnome problem19:49
Wixyhey, after login with login manager my pam_limits are not applied, however if I do ssh to localhost it works. what can I do?19:49

TuxBlackEdoHey ive been messing with this thing for an hour now before coming here. Does anyone know how to set persistant net names in ubuntu 18.04? /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules seems to be missing20:09
gogetaBashing-om, the old fglrx had switching20:09
gogetaBashing-om, amd.powerplay=1 that turns the card on from grub20:13
Bashing-omgogeta: I say again . I Have no experience with Intel/ATI. Used to be with open source drivers there was the tool "switcheroo" to change the graphic's set . maybe 'prime' now-a-days ??20:15
TuxBlackEdoman i should get a windows box, i can't believe its so hard to set persistant network names in ubuntu 18.04... it used to be so easy with /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules20:18
hggdhTuxBlackEdo: it is not Ubuntu, it is Linux/SystemD20:19
Bashing-omgogeta: Wish he had of hung around. " If you are using Ubuntu GNOME 17.04+, switcheroo-control is installed by default. If it works correctly, it's supposed to force your less powerful GPU to be used for your regular session, but you can right-click on apps to "Launch using Dedicated Graphics Card."20:19
Sven_vBI'm trying to override my default proxy setting for SSH, to connect to my live USB session directly. so in my ssh config I put a section "Host ubuntu.local" with a line "ProxyCommand none", because the man page said " Setting the command to “none” disables this option entirely.", however, when I try to ssh into the live session machine, I get a proxy error HTTP/503, because my proxy doesn't allow forwarding to the local LAN.20:21
Sven_vBany ideas?20:21
gogetaBashing-om, it used to be part of the amd driver itself but fglrx is dead now20:21
gogetaBashing-om, the open source drive still has no good sloutions20:22
Sven_vBactually 503 sounds more like the proxy doesn't do avahi, but that shouldn't even matter.20:22
Bashing-omgogeta: Seems switcheroo is still alive and well : https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/bionic/+source/switcheroo-control .20:26
gogetaBashing-om, nice im shure he will return20:28
Bashing-omgogeta: Maybe he comes back ,, we see .. And confirmation of the tool's use: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/bionic/amd64/switcheroo-control .20:29
TuxBlackEdohow does one set up persistent network names ubuntu 18.04?20:33
TuxBlackEdowhy are my network interfaces named "rename2" "rename3" "enp129s0f0" "eno1" "rename6" "enp129s0f1" (in that order)20:35

MJ94Hello. I put Ubuntu 18.04 on a flash drive for a friend. We would like to wipe Windows on her HP Pavillion G7; however, when we boot from the USB, it looks like the screen is turned counter-clockwise to the left and the mouse does not move in the expected direction. Do you know why?20:45
rosco_yMJ94: you might have to tweak your "Display" settings20:46
MJ94rosco_y: where would I do that?20:47
rosco_yThere is an app the "startup" menu under "Settings" called "Display"  click on that.  It might be a pain if everything is upside down, but I think it will solve your troubles.20:48

tallguyhello #ubuntu folks, i'd like to know how to speed up very slow typing of letters and characters21:49
coolballis it a wireless keyboard?21:51
coolballif so... new batteries probly21:51
tallguynope wired21:52
tomreynunless it's you doing slow input, then it's probably a hardware issue with the keyboard, such as bad / galf broken cable.21:53
tallguytyping is painfully slo and i miss many characters by typine at ant but very slow pace21:53
tomreyntry the same keyboard on another computer, or in BIOS, see if it's also slow there21:53
tallguyslow input tomreyn? is that a setting?21:54
tomreyntallguy: not that i know of21:54
tallguythank you, i have not switched out the KB21:54
tomreynyou asked about "how to speed up very slow typing of letters and characters" - this could also have meant you're looking for training material on how to learn typing faster. so i wasn't sure what you are referring to21:55
XcytreThere is a 'Slow Keys' setting in System Settings, Universal Access21:56
sonicwindyeah I was thinking accessibility options maybe21:56
Xcytrei had to google it21:56
sonicwindyep, think you hit on something... that's exactly what it does21:57
sonicwindjust looked in my settings21:57
sonicwindcheck your Universal Access settings, tallguy21:58
sonicwindits under "Typing" tab on 16.04 LTS21:58

tomreyn!audio | qwebirc4024923:11
ubottuqwebirc40249: 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 !mp3.23:11
tomreyni hope this actually exists on 18.04... this hint was weitten for an earlier version23:11
tomreynbut the general sound architecture should still be the same. so give that troubleshooting guide a try.23:12
feuliis "sudo -s" different than "su" ?23:20
sonicwindtomreyn, apparently Slow Keys will get enabled if you hold down the Shift key for more than 8 seconds. Hold it down again for 8+ seconds to disable it. So I read anyways. Good to know. Will also tag tallguy on this.23:21
coolballthere is definitely a correlation... if it uses the native res it also does the installation dialog... if it uses 1024x768 it just thinks forever... do I maybe want to try ubuntu 16 instal of 18?23:21
