texlaHow to activate numlockx in Ubuntu-mate 18.10 before login01:20
lordcirthtexla, "/usr/bin/numlockx on" as the command in a systemd .service file would probably work01:21

gijoe3kHello all! Question, I have a Thinkpad T60 with a video card ATI Radeon X1400 running Xubuntu 18.04.02:00
gijoe3kI am not sure if it's running the open source drivers but it seems that my FPS are very low in Urban Terror and other OpenGL games.02:01
crimson_kinghow long does it usually take for my uploaded GPG key to show up on the keyserver.ubuntu.com?02:02
gijoe3kIsn't there a non-free repository for ubuntu that has old proprietary  that ran radeon drivers at one point.02:02
gijoe3kI got it working in Debian 9 using this link:02:03
gijoe3kWhich is fine but i would rather use ubuntu for this machine.02:04
gijoe3kCan anyone point me in the right direction? Thank you :)02:04
OerHeksthat x1400 will run on the openradeon driver, AFAIK https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver02:07
OerHeksand the list of cards supported by amdgpu https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AMDGPU-Driver02:07
gijoe3k@OerHeks, Your right, Both Debian 9 and Xubuntu 18.04 use this by default.02:12
gijoe3k@OerHeks, I just know that if I use the Non-Free(proprietary) in Debian 9 my FPS went from 15-10 FPS to 60 FPS02:14
gijoe3k@OerHeks, Hoping I could do the say in Ubuntu or any of it's offical flavors :D02:14
OerHeksi have no valid or known solution to use the old flgrx drivers, than installing 14.04 LTS02:15

white_magic_mar_d`ghostman: is that a nautilus bug then? seems like you had an error with rsync07:26
pi0is it possible to stream from ubuntu to firestick07:29
mar_d`ghostmanwhite_magic_: I also tried copying it via "File Manager"/GUI, same issue though07:30

white_magic_mar_d`ghostman: any chance you just used the cp command ?07:34
pikapikaWhats the simplest way to view the screen on another monitor?07:39
pikapikaI mean07:39
pikapikaNormally the answer is to use a cable to connect the monitor07:39
pikapikaBut this laptop does not come with any slot for this07:39
pikapikaI can keep the other monitor connected to its own separate computer if needed07:39
EriC^^pikapika: ubuntu has built in desktop sharing called 'remmina'07:40
pikapikaDoes the other computer also need to be Ubuntu?07:40
ducasseyou just need a vnc client07:41
white_magic_pikapika: you have a laptop that has neither an HDMI port nor a vga port?07:41
pikapikaYeah neither07:41
marz_d`ghostmanpikapika: buy a usb-> hdmi converter07:41
white_magic_what kind of a laptop is that?]07:41
mousespikapika for a fast and super easy solution - chrome remote desktop is handy07:42
marz_d`ghostmanwhite_magic_: ASUS laptops07:42
pikapikadoes it requires internet?07:42
pikapikaif so, can I intead somehow use an ethernet cable07:42
marz_d`ghostmanwhite_magic_: ASUS laptops that are like Apples seems to be built that way07:42
mousespikapika you know that's a fine question - I think it does.  vnc is also always an option and runs on pretty much anything07:42
pikapikausb -> hdmi would of course be the standard solution07:42
white_magic_marz_d`ghostman: well i guess anything is possible07:43
marz_d`ghostmanwhite_magic_: my colleagues laptops are ASUS that are like mac replica. haha07:43
white_magic_pikapika: since you said you're ok with connect the monitor to a different computer.. i would suggest x11 forwarding :)07:43
pikapikaalright I'll have to look into this07:44
pikapikaAgain, is this possible purely via ethernet cable?07:44
white_magic_pikapika: wait, you have the opposite problem.. x11 forwarding is not the answer.. you are not short on displays07:44
white_magic_pikapika: like others have said, vnc is *probably* your answer. However, i will suggest something else.. look into team viewer07:45
white_magic_pikapika: its less 'linuxy' and hardcore, but if you need something with minimal configuration, it might be the answer07:46
pikapikaHow much slowdown would vnc suffer from compared to direct monitor?07:46
white_magic_pikapika: quite a bit.. e.g. you wouldnt want to watch youtube07:47
pikapikaThen it kinda defeats the purpose I intended for07:47
white_magic_which is?07:47
pikapikaWell I guess I gotta shell out cash for usb->hdmi07:47
pikapikaI wanted a larger screen for LMMS07:48
pikapikaif its so slow, then I guess audio work may not be ideal07:48
white_magic_yea you should probably just buy the cable07:48
pikapikaI have a few hours to me though, no harm in experimenting the cable trick07:49
rfmI would like to log in to a remote ubuntu machine with "X -query thatmachine.local" which basically means I need a display manager on the remote machine that talks XDMCP.  Which one should I use?07:49
pikapikaWhats this 'docking station' thing?07:57
pikapikaCan that trick be used if I dont have a monitor port?07:58
pikapikaHoly shit that cost07:59
white_magic_pikapika: yea they usually charge the big bucks for a docking station08:01
white_magic_pikapika: for example, I've had the XPS 15 9550 Dell laptop since late 2015, so about 3 years now. I still havent bought the dock for it. Not gonna pay like $200-30008:02
pikapikalol yeah08:02
pikapikaWonder if theres some '3rd party' solution that provides similar facility much cheaper08:03
white_magic_pikapika: yea, it's called a USB hub and an hdmi cable08:03
white_magic_oh and the power cable08:04
white_magic_its just less convenient than a dock08:04
pikapikaWill it basically appear as separate devices to the os?08:05
pikapikaOr does it require some 'special knowledge' from os as well?08:05
ducasserfm: i think lightdm should work, but i haven't set it up for xdmcp myself. gdm doesn't support it any longer, i think.08:06

pikapikaHow much does a usb hdmi typically cost white_magic_? I am seeing strange figures on the internet, I am guessing I am searching by wrong terms?08:15
white_magic_pikapika: where do you live? the cost will vary08:20
mousespikapika - Here in the USA looks like I could Amazon one for as little as $10.00 USD08:20
pikapikaHmm, the figures i am seeing are on the order of 7-10 times higher08:21
white_magic_pikapika: I'm not sure what's economic for you! i live in USA so cables arent very expensive here08:21

Re12_Is there a tool on Ubuntu (Or WSL) to test packet loss on the router? Something like iperf where I can set the size of the packets my TCP flow is sending and do not to configure the sender11:33

tomreynRe12_: on linux (not WSL, i would think) you can send custom packets using scapy.11:47
tomreynmtr sends icmp type 8 (and receives type 0), so echo request / response packets.11:49
Re12_tomreyn: So not TCP packets. Does scapy allow that?11:50
tomreynRe12_: yes, scapy does.11:50

tomreynping is icmp echo, you wanted tcp11:52
Re12_Looks like scapy is on wsl11:53
tomreynRe12_: right, but the linux kernel is not. if you suspect your router is dropping or mishandling traffic it may be easier to just capture traffic on two wires / devices close to it and send traffic you suspect to be mangled / dropped between those.11:55

Re12_tomreyn: I guess the problem would be that TCP sends a burst so I can try to overwhelm the buffer but I'm not sure how ICMP pings work. Do they send a packet at a time?12:00
tomreynadikwok: actually i may have been wrong there, you're asking about the tty font, this is set by console-setup, see /etc/default/console-setup and the console-setup(5) manual page12:01
adikwoktomreyn: i tried ubuntu mono regular in terminal, its not same as the font type, which was flying on screen first boot12:03
tomreynRe12_: icmp echo packets are usually single packets, yes.12:03
tomreynadikwok: right, the fonts used in graphical (X) terminals differ from those used on TTYs / during the early boot process.12:03
adikwoktomreyn: i dont understand how to read this.. # Consult the console-setup(5) manual page.12:04
tomreynadikwok: maybe this helps you more than the documentation i already pointed you to above. https://askubuntu.com/questions/173220/how-do-i-change-the-font-or-the-font-size-in-the-tty-console12:04
tomreynadikwok: console-setup(5) manual page -> run "man 5 console-setup"12:05
adikwokok, i try man 5 console-setup12:05
tomreynrequires that you have man-db installed12:05
Re12_tomreyn: Looks like tcping would work as well.12:07
adikwoktomreyn: i can read man 5 console-setup ..  FONTFACE and FONTSIZE12:08
tomreynRe12_: that's not in ubuntu AFAIK12:09
tomreynadikwok: i appreciate that you can read it.12:09
adikwoktomreyn: the fonts which similar is uroob, i guess, .. but in terminal, i can only find uroob bold.,.12:10
tomreynadikwok: i told you all i know about this, you're on your own, i'm afraid.12:11
adikwoktomreyn: thx for pointing direction ..12:11
tomreynyou're welcome. in caser you get stuck you could also try repeating your question here later or ask in ##linux, too12:12
adikwoktomreyn: ok, here is my searching .. im looking for fonts type used when ubuntu is boot,.. those 'flying' words, are cool.. i installed ubuntu mono, and its not the font like used in boot time.12:14
adikwoktomreyn: ubuntu mono, similar to font used  when i am in gnome-terminal,12:15
tomreyni still dont think i can help more, sorry.12:18
adikwoktomreyn: i found font type, its terminus, . but i can not set in terminal . no terminus fonts. :[12:27
coz_adikwok,   did you  sudo fc-cache -f -v12:29
coz_after installing12:30
tomreynyou just need to: sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup12:31
coz_ah I awoke too early12:32
adikwokcoz_: i did just now, fc-cache -f -v.  it print the /usr/share/fonts/ ..12:34
coz_adikwok, I believe tomreyn's suggestion may be more appropriate12:34
adikwoktomreyn: coz_: thx .. im running dpkg-reconfigure console-setup12:37
adikwoktomreyn: i am rebooting my lp after this message, hopefully terminus is able to be chose in terminal.12:40
adikwoktomreyn: i will update soon ..12:40
=== mkv is now known as m4v
adikwoktomreyn: still can not add console-setup fonts to my lxterminal12:47
adikwoktomreyn: ubuntu mono, is cool also, i can use it for now12:49
adikwokmay i ask more question? its about LXDE, .. i had added keybinds for ctrl+alt+t. ..yet i had not found how to set brightness with keyboard, . like i could do when i was in gnome-desktop12:50
adikwokit is only that brightness control i need for now, ( because many failed things i read at the logs, but i still can use this gnome ubuntu with lxde.12:51
ioriaadikwok, you can use xrandr12:53

adikwokioria: xrandr12:57
ioriaadikwok, no, i mean to set the brightness ?12:58
adikwokioria: yes, i dont know what cmd to use,. i only type xrandr12:58
ioriaadikwok, can you paste the output ?12:58
adikwokioria: i forgot how to paste the output .. and i dont know how to check logs about myname only in this irc12:59

ioriaadikwok, and what did you install exactly on that  pc ?13:15
adikwokioria: ubuntu 18.04.1 gnome, change to lxde only13:15
ioriaadikwok, and why you did not install lubuntu ?13:16
adikwokioria: honestly, . lxde is faster than when i used win 7 with readyboost 32gb13:16
adikwokioria: i twak tweaked many gnome things, .. if i install lubuntu, i am not sure whether its gonna break all gnome-settings or not13:17
capayHello. When booting my bionic I get an kernel oops. Don't know what I changed to cause this, but when I rescue the system, and without doing anything more than saying "normal boot", it works. What could that be?13:17
ioriaadikwok, 1) i'd install Lubuntu (given your cpu and ram) 2)  i think you tweaked too much13:18
adikwoknow, i still can use gnome-things .. in lxde, . with much more booster energy13:18
capayIs there a way to get the error in a file instead of having to make a photo? It might be important to know that I'm using a Ryzen 1800X cpu13:19
adikwokioria: i am sure, i tweaked too much, since im blind in ubuntu, tried to find out at askubuntu,.. some things i get from there., till i get stucked , and found out this irc channel13:19

=== dinasty is now known as hilom

BluesKajHi folks14:45
ducasseadikwok: the fn key is usually interpreted by hardware, and doesn't send normal key events, so it can't be bound like other keys. you would need special code.14:47
ducasseApachez: if packages from an external repo introduce crashes, that is not really an issue for us14:48
adikwokducasse: fn key for sound volume is working, with pulseaudio too..14:48
ducasseadikwok: probably because it is interpreted by hardware to send volume up/down events14:50
adikwokducasse: now i can only do manually with echo 1 > /sys/class/backlight/acer_wmi/brightness14:50
adikwokbut still its not low light enough when working in the room.14:51

adikwokducasse: how to bind it to another key combo?14:52
adikwokchange fn+left to alt+left ?14:52
ducasseadikwok: i don't know how lxde/openbox handles that, but you could use xbindkeys14:53

HaMsTeRsI'm creating a bootable usb with full ubuntu installed15:10
HaMsTeRsit's pain to make it bootable on my surface pro 515:11
HaMsTeRsI need to convert the usb from MBR to GPT15:11
HaMsTeRsand install UEFI15:11
HaMsTeRsi've created a 350MB partition format to fat 32 and move it to the front of the partition list15:12
HaMsTeRssuppose /dev/sda1 is my linux installed partition, now changed to /dev/sda2 and /dev/sda1 is the 350mb fat for EUFI15:12
HaMsTeRsam I suppose doing this?15:13
HaMsTeRsI also used gdisk to convert my disk to gpt15:13
TJ-HaMsTeRs: sounds sensible to me although the EFI-SP does not have to be at the start of the device15:14
BluesKajwhy fat, why not ntfs?15:14
TJ-BluesKaj: because it is the EFI-SP15:15
HaMsTeRsI'm not sure if I'm doing this right15:16
BluesKajTJ-, ok, I don't use efi/gpt, so my mistake15:16
ApachezHaMsTeRs: I assume you already looked at modifying pinguy builder for your needs?15:16
HaMsTeRsCurrently awaiting the ubuntu installed partition moving from /dev/sda1 to /dev/sda2 and building the 350MB fat to /dev/sda1.15:17
TJ-HaMsTeRs: if you've managed to convert from MBR to GPT and not damage the existing file-systems you're doing well15:17
TJ-HaMsTeRs: as I said though, the EFI-SP doesn't have to be first, so the move you're doing is redundant15:17
Apachezyou can also look at osmc who does something similar as you described15:17
HaMsTeRspinguy builder? no15:17
Apachezthey got a 256MB fat32 as first partition to boot from and then the rest is ext4 for the files15:18
ApachezHaMsTeRs: pinguy builder is a script where you can take a specific ubuntu installation and make that into a (hybrid) bootable iso15:18
Apachezjust thinking that stuff made there could help your case15:18
Apacheztheres some info on that script15:21
HaMsTeRsOh.  the Pinguy seem to be a great solution.  Better than what I'm doing now15:23
HaMsTeRsActually the Ubuntu OS was installed under VMWare workstation.   I used Clonezilla disk to disk cloned to USB15:23
HaMsTeRsand trying to make the USB is bootable on the host15:24
HaMsTeRsApachez, after I created the ISO with Pinguy, and burn it to USB, would the USB in persistent mode?15:25
Apachezthe system I used pinguy builder for booted the whole filesystem into ram15:26
Apachezso when rebooted it was restored to how I created the iso15:26
Apachezbut you can easily add persistent mode if you wish15:26
HaMsTeRsBut seems the ISO cannot go over 4GB15:28
HaMsTeRsThe box I'm working on is around 16GB ...15:29
TJ-HaMsTeRs: you're already using the best method to achieve what you want15:30
HaMsTeRsI'm actually following this guide: https://www.rojtberg.net/1032/converting-a-ubuntu-and-windows-dual-boot-installation-to-uefi/15:31
HaMsTeRsand reference to this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/UEFI-and-BIOS/stable-alternative#Create_boot-loading_systems_for_external_drives15:31
TJ-HaMsTeRs: the Surface uses EFI boot for Windows, yes?15:32
HaMsTeRs(include Secure boot enabled)15:33
TJ-HaMsTeRs: and you want an external USB device to also boot in EFI mode?15:33
HaMsTeRsactually it doesn't matter.  I just want my own build ubuntu USB to boot15:34
HaMsTeRsand I do not want to make any changes on my surface setting15:35
TJ-HaMsTeRs: presumably the Surface doesn't support Legacy/CSM/BIOS boot mode then?15:35
HaMsTeRsheard that it can change back to legacy BIOS mode.  but I'm afraid that would affect the original OS installed on the system.  (and this is the main purpose I installed ubuntu on USB because I do not want to corrupt the system)15:37
HaMsTeRsif everything works good under USB, then I'll then move it to an SXDC card15:37
TJ-HaMsTeRs: so the only thing different from a regular UEFI install is to ensure GRUB's EFI module gets installed to the removable media path of the EFI-SP (/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI). I seem to recall that can be configured15:42
TJ-HaMsTeRs: In fact I think it is now done by default anyhow - looking at my system that file has been written15:44
sonicwindI just finished doing this recently with 18.04, and I had to copy the grubx64.efi over bootx64.efi in efi/boot, TJ15:47
sonicwinder, rename grubx64.efi bootx64.efi15:47
sonicwindactually, you've got me wondering now if I did some extra steps I didn't need to.... I'll have to investigate that next time.15:51
BluesKajHaMsTeRs, I have W10 and Kubunru 18.10 on an older Bios HP pc without any problems, i also have kubuntu on this pc using legacy with Bios instead of UEFI/GPT16:00
BluesKajit works well unless you need more than 4 primary partitions16:01
=== Dreaman is now known as Blade
=== SimonNL is now known as SimonNL_Afk
TJ-sonicwind: interestingly I checked the file and it is done as a straight copy by update-grub/grub-mkimage16:25
TJ-sonicwind: as in "grub-install -v /dev/sda" ==> "grub-install: info: copying `/boot/grub/x86_64-efi/core.efi' -> `/boot/efi/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi'."16:26
sonicwindTJ, these are the directions I made for myself from notes online. Are you saying this isn't necessary now?  https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/sXPWXmCxYj/16:27
TJ-sonicwind: makes me wonder if it does any checks for a bootx64.efi installed by something other than GRUB. if not, GRUB risks over-writing some other boot-loader and we're back to the problems we had with BIOS/MBR !16:28
sonicwindBasically, I was doing it manually16:28
TJ-sonicwind: I'm using 18.04 and it did the copy16:28
sonicwindnext time I installI will try to leave it be then.... if it doesn't work, back to manual16:28
sonicwindso that also means that whenever grub has updates, I shouldn't need to do anything to implement the update, correct? I was going to manually re-do those steps in my paste16:29
sonicwindnot sure what core.efi is... mine was grubx64.efi16:30
kishHi all - would really appreciate a little advice ! - Looking to share files such as password store, dot files, documents etc across multiple devices. Connected as such: [devices]<-----> [vpn] <===>[VMs on server]. Would anyone recommend hosting a GitServer on the VM as opposed to mounting the VM directory via SSHFS on the devices (this is looking a little tricky on android). Or any other suggestions? Thanks16:31
rorythe best thing is to clone the dotfile repo, and then symbolic link the files into the relevant locations.16:33
alnrthe icon bar is disappearing from my desktop, have to click activities to see it. how can i make the bar stay visible?16:33
kishrory: so run host a gitserver on my vm ?16:34
sonicwindTJ, you reminded me... when I was doing that, I made some mistake in my steps before I was finished, and it booted into Ubuntu even though I hadn't finished the steps! I was wondering how that was possible. I guess your comments explain that. Thanks for the heads up.16:35

lordcirthcat /etc/lsb-release16:56
lordcirthYeah ok.  I'm booting up a VM to take a look16:57
cnnxis that the latest?16:57
TJ-adac: RAID-1 is mirrored disks, so 1 failing means there is still 1 complete image. However, the system may not boot in 'degraded' mode; it depends on which RAID technology/method is in use, and its configuration.16:57
ioriacnnx, the gui should be 'startup applications'; type 'startup' in Activities or in search bar16:59
lordcirthIt's the latest long term support release.  18.10 is the latest release, but the differences aren't very big16:59

Smaug_My guess is a tmp file was created on the laptop?  however I have no idea where it is18:31
Smaug_and so I cannot delete it and resolove the issue18:31
Smaug_anyone have thoughts on what happened and how to resolve?18:31
WoC-is artful == 16.04 ?18:32
Smaug_WoC-: are you asking if I'm on 16.04?  yes I am18:32
WoC-no, trying to figure out which version is which vs release name18:33
WoC-but i do have a 16.04 installation, i ust dont recall the release name for that version and i need to know18:33
WoC-Smaug_, yes, tmp file is in one of the /tmp /var/tmp etc locations, usew get18:35
WoC-err use wget18:35
Smaug_WoC-: thanks for the suggestion.  you mean i should use wget when I am attempting this in the future or I can somehow use wget to resolve my current issue?18:37

Smaug_tomreyn: WoC-: should I be worried about deleting these large files in my tmp dir?  how can I check that they aren't tmp for something important ?  or given their size is it a reasonable assumption that this is where the tar was putting itself?18:47
Smaug_(it's in /dev/shm/ )18:47
Smaug_tomreyn: that ubuntu page is literally what I used before running the command.  i included the excludes that they recommend18:48
WoC-depends on what the files are and what you run18:48
tomreynSmaug_: files in temporary directories (/tmp, /var/tmp, /var/cache, ~/.cache ...) are temporary by nature. if they're older than your `uptime` it should be safe to delet them.18:49
Smaug_that is a good point, the date18:49
Smaug_these 65M files were not created today18:49
Smaug_*something* was created by the tar command *somewhere* that has eaten up all my disk space18:49
tomreynSmaug_: i think it will be best to just post df -h and df -hi to a pastebin, as well as the command you ran to create the backup, so we can suggest a way forward.18:50

mousesfrdmn - did you check the checksum of the image you used to create a USB boot stick?  Does that boot stick work on other systems?19:21
solsTiCeso it finally showed. just have to wait because of the slow disk19:22
frdmnmouses, checksum matches - i tried both the regular 18.04 desktop image as well as the boot-repair-disk, I can see the splash screen in both and then it's stuck in the loading screen19:23
Smaug_tomreyn: results of my root du -shx is at paste.ee/p/znqPk   investigating /home and /usr yield normal files.  only super large files are ones i expect to be so.   Documents.  Matlab19:23
frdmnmouses while showing the errors mentioned earlier in the background19:23
Smaug_could be that my hard drive was already nearing full19:23
mousesfrdmn - Odd.  Not really sure, sorry :(19:24
Smaug_in which case the file itself that I'm trying to find and delete is not necessarily so large19:24
Smaug_tomreyn: but i'd still like to find it and delete it and make my computer usable again19:24
frdmnmouses thank you though :)19:24
TheWildwhy my laptop wakes up on it own second after it was suspended?19:39
tomreynSmaug_: sorry, got distracted, and still am a bit. did you make progress?19:56
tomreynSmaug_: oh you're still looking, ok. what'S /archive ? this is a non standard path19:56

tomreyn71 GB in /usr is much, but doesn't need to be wrong. 42 GB in /media is wrong20:00
plasmidProposing using KVM on my soon to come Ubuntu 18.04 server. If I load windows 10 would I be able to play games in steam ok? Not sure if KVM will detect my video card as a passthrough.20:02
tomreynSmaug_: https://paste.ee/p/znqPk says you have 109GB in /home, but https://paste.ee/p/NcXrR says you have 225 GB fully filled up in /home/thomas - which is a separate file system. so you seem to have something else in /home taking 109 GB space.20:03
tomreynplasmid: if you have a spare video card to pass through to a KVM guest for exclusive use there you'll need to configure this.20:04
plasmidtomreyn: SO what you are telling me is that the host will have a normal video card and I would need a secondary video card exclusively for my Windows 10 instance?20:05
tomreynplasmid: other than this you may be able to use spice with 3d acceleration to share the capabilities of a single host managed video chipset between host and guest.20:06
tomreynplasmid: that's how pass-through works. you pass a full device down to the guest.20:06
tomreynplasmid: and when using pass-through you want to have another graphics chipset to use for the host, otherwise it couldn't provide any output at all, which won't work.20:07
plasmidtomreyn: i have a 2nd video card but if the system came already with the primary video card, do you believe it necessiates a system wipe to recognize the 'old' card as the host card and the new card (that came with the system) to be the guest video Card?20:08
tomreynplasmid: passthrough works so that you tell the host to ignore a given graphics device, which usually requires a reboot for safe operation, then youmake kvm pass this device through to the guest.20:09
tomreynplasmid: i haven't actually configured this myself, so take this with a grain of salt, and ask in #kvm (or ##kvm ?) for specific instrucctions.20:10
plasmidtomreyn: will do. Thanks m8.20:10

limbo_Is the newest version of thunderbird coming to ubuntu 18.04 LTS or do I have to update?20:35
OerHekslimbo_, ubuntu should give the latest ( stable), https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=thunderbird20:37
OerHeksand snaps give some beta and edge version, 60.3 https://snapcraft.io/thunderbird20:37
tchakatakHello. I would like to configure one of my server as a irc relay (i would like to connect it trough irssi, and having access to all my chans/servers without losing content) how can i do that ? :)20:59
OerHekstons of guides out there, most of them about inspircd https://www.vultr.com/docs/setting-up-an-inspircd-irc-server-on-ubuntu-16-04-lts21:02

Greyztarturns out making oneshot systemd with program that got daemon switch was not smart,rather omit daemon switch and use fork in systemd file,now systemctl-analyze plot > /stuff.svg is 200kb and not 400mb haha21:14
tomreynmy point is that you have 109 GB of data in /home/thomas, but you have another 225 GB of data in the ecryptfs file system mounted at /home/thomas - so the 109 GB in /home/thomas which are effectively on the / file system may not actually belong there.21:26
tomreynSmaug_: ^21:26
limbo_OerHeks: oh, I just had thunderbird open since before it released. Whoops.21:27
tomreynSmaug_: so it's either this or i forgot how exactly ecryptfs works / is represented by df / du21:27

tomreyn!nomodeset | XLV22:00
ubottuXLV: 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 parameter22:00
madmangun@XLV try adding nouveau.modeset=0 to the grub command line.22:00
XLVtomreyn, i used that kernel boot parameter22:01
XLVstill no go22:01
XLVmadmangun, will try22:01
madmangunworked for me i7 with gtx 107022:02
madmangunHad to use it for Fedora, Manjaro, and Ubuntu... Damn nouveau.22:02

tomreynXLV: are you saying the installer doesn't start properly or the installer works fine but then the installed system doesn't work properly?22:12
XLVtomreyn, the install doesnt start properly and the installed system after upgrading from 18.04 doesnt work properly22:13
XLVs/the install/the live usb installer22:14
XLVit doesnt even switch to terminals with alt+Function keys22:14
madmangunXLV, did you add the nouveau.modeset=0 by pressing e at the grub boot loader and adding it and then pressing F10 to boot?22:16
XLVmadmangun, not yet22:17
madmangunI was having the exact same issue until that kernel paramater.22:17
XLVdownloading 18.04.1 too22:17
madmangunGive it a try and it should work.  It'll disable nouveau and use your integrated intel chipset.22:18
tomreynXLV: you could also try the daily images, this will get you newer verions of the installers in case which means you can benefit from recent bug fixes22:22
XLVif the nouveau.modeset doesnt work, i will, tomreyn22:23

madmangunHere is a link that shows how to edit grub at boot, REPLACE modeset with nouveau.modeset=0 in that tutorial.  https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/sln306327/manual-nomodeset-kernel-boot-line-option-for-linux-booting?lang=en22:26
OerHekslook for bios updates, disable  Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT) https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI22:26
mzoi installed a package (expat) and i don't know where its .pc file is22:27
mzobut apparently it should have one22:27
mzowhat do i do?22:27
geirhadpkg -L pkgname   to see what files the package installed22:28
mzothere's no .pc file22:29
geirhathe pkg-config part will be in the corresponding -dev package though22:29
mzoyeah i tried expat-dev but there's no such package22:29
tomreynmzo: installing a software usually refers to installing binary packages., whereas .pc files are files interpreted by pkg-config, which is a utility to generate linker configurations.22:29
mzoah it's libexpat-dev22:29
mzoi see22:30
mzothanks :)22:31
HipHop-openboxTomreyn I don't see it that way but it's close22:31
HipHop-openboxGuess it depends on which Linux distro ur using22:33
XLVmadmangun, that kernel boot parameter worked, it booted in low res mode.. but now it shows the text mode info of system loading and its stuck on somethng about a start job for Hold until process finished up22:36
madmangunInteresting, try waiting out the start job and take note of any errors.  Can you give me the make and model of your computer?  I should have asked that before.22:39
tomreynXLV: this, run in a terminal, should provide the above info: dmesg -t | grep ^DMI:22:42
tomreynterminal or tty22:42
tomreynHipHop-openbox: yes it probably does, i agree22:46
XLVmadmangun, i7 4770K, gigabyte z87x-ud3h, gtx 97022:47
XLVtomreyn, doesnt switch to terminals22:48
XLVgonna try the mini netboot alt installer22:48
tomreynXLV: well you could boot to recovery and run it there, it would also print your current bios version. but you can also see this from the bios setup utility as well as during POST22:50
XLVtomreyn, already loaded the mini installer22:50
XLVbios is the latest for that mb22:51
XLVits old stuff, z87 about 4 years old now, no new bioses out for it22:51
c|onemanI'd be cool if during apt updates it had a graph that showed CPU, HDD and LAN bottlenecks/activity22:52
tomreynXLV: oh right, i justnoticed, 2014 is the latest22:53
Sven_vBwhen using debootstrap inside an Ubuntu LiveCD session, will it automatically use packages stored on the LiveCD if they're useful?22:53
tomreynSven_vB: i dont know for certain but i doubt it pretty much22:55
Sven_vBtomreyn, thanks. then I'll have to check how to configure it.22:56
WoCXLV try adding kernel param nouvaux=0 <-- sorry, forgot how the nvidia open source thing is spelled22:57
XLVWoC, did so, worked re: the video but it got stuck elsewhere23:00
WoChybrid gfx ?23:00
tomreynSven_vB: i don't think debootstrap can use more than a single apt repository, so this might proove difficult.23:00
madmangun@WoC I had him set nouveau.modeset=0 and it helped him get a little further. Not sure what's causing the issue atm.23:00
XLVno, desktop, no optimus23:01
WoCk madmangun, was thinking it had to do with nouveau vs fb23:02
tomreynit might be https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mutter/+bug/172735623:03
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1727356 in mutter (Ubuntu Bionic) "Login screen never appears on early generation Intel GPUs (Core2 and Atom etc)" [High,Fix committed]23:03
Sven_vBtomreyn, in that case I might need to use a webserver that virtually combines available files from several repos. which might need some magic for the package list files.23:03
Sven_vBor make my own one repo to rule them all.23:04
XLVtomreyn, i aint using the IGP at all.. the monitor is connected to the dGPU23:04
tomreynSven_vB: good luck with this, could take a while.23:04
tomreynXLV: i see.23:05
tomreynXLV: personally i'd connect the screen to the primary graphics chipset during installation - which i surely the intel one.23:08
tomreynthats not to say what you're trying to do can't work23:08

kernelpanicHello! I'm using ubuntu16 and have a /etc/network/interfaces like https://pastebin.com/6wApDEhW. (dhcp and static via an interface alias). My problem is that when dhclient times out (no dhcp server present) and there is a /var/lib/dhclient.*leases from previous DHCP leases, then dhclient will tear down eth0:1, making the system inaccessible from the outside. I only recently started observing this, think it didn't happen before, and23:33
kernelpaniccannot figure out why it does that. Can you give me a hint please?23:33
