jamie_1_anyone have any idea why virtualbox when loading up a vm wont read the iso as a bootable medium?00:36
jamie_1_it just tells me cannot find bootable medium even when ubuntu18.04.1-server-amd64.iso is loaded in a disk image00:37
leftyfbjamie_1_: it's supposed to be optical media, not a disk image00:37
jamie_1_sorry i worded that bad, thats what it is00:37
leftyfbjamie_1_: what OS is VB running on?00:38
jamie_1_ubuntu 18.1000:38
jamie_1_btw nice to see you again... i dont come very often but you always seem to be here00:39
leftyfbit's working fine for me here on 18.04. Have you tested the iso booting another machine from usb or cd?00:39
jamie_1_hrm... i did have a few system complaints that i had to fix when i installed virtualbox00:40
jamie_1_i know its system related due to its happening both on vmware and virtualbox00:40
jamie_1_this dam on screen keyboard is kill me00:41
OerHeksmaybe you errors about VT-x or so?00:41
jamie_1_any ideas how to fix that or check what i need to do to fix it?00:41
jamie_1_im not a wizz with vm's honeslty00:41
jamie_1_or spelling for that fact apparently00:41
jamie_1_im  thinking of calling it and going back to ubuntu gnome 16.0400:42
jamie_1_XD everything worked a lot better there XD00:42
=== jacob is now known as Guest50835
jamie_1_screw it im going to load up 16.04.100:44
leftyfbjamie_1_: I would stick with 18.0400:44
leftyfbmainly the LTS releases00:44
jamie_1_anyone know why ubuntu gnome seems to be gone?00:44
=== Guest50835 is now known as jodlers
leftyfbjamie_1_: 18.04 and above IS ubuntu gnome00:44
jamie_1_darn... i loved gnome 3.2000:45
jamie_1_the new one feels to close to unity im00:45
jamie_1_the hotlkey reliance is a lot lower which is what i loved, almost never had to touch the mouse at all00:46
leftyfbjamie_1_: you know you can make it however you like right? (for the most part)00:46
jamie_1_oh i know00:46
jamie_1_its linux XD00:46
jamie_1_it was honestly just how i liked right out of box00:46
leftyfbhotkeys > mouse anyday00:46
jamie_1_whats killing me is this dam on screen keyboard shit00:47
jamie_1_anyone know how to deal with that?00:47
leftyfbwhy do you need an onscreen keyboard? Also please watch the language00:47
jamie_1_and i dont.... thats the issue00:47
jamie_1_its disabled in settings and due to me having a touch screen and using it a lot it keeps poping up the keyboard00:48
OerHekssure you find system settings about this behaviour00:48
OerHeksand install gnome tweak tool, maybe more options there00:48
OerHeksonboard screenboard is default on a touch device, great00:49
leftyfbjamie_1_: so you do or do not use the touchscreen? Personally, I don't like to treat my laptops like a phone or tablet so that is the first thing I disable in the BIOS00:49
jamie_1_leftyfb: my touch pad doesnt work even with changing the grub00:49
jamie_1_it works when it feels like so when i do need to use the cursor i have to use the touch screen00:49
jamie_1_also when working with servers its kinda nice honestly with the two in one settings leftyfb00:50
leftyfbmaybe that needs to be the first thing you troubleshoot? (touchpad)00:50
OerHekswhat touch device is this?00:50
jamie_1_asus harman00:50
leftyfbjamie_1_: huh? A touchreen is nice working with server? Can you elaborate on that?00:51
jamie_1_when just configuring stuff with ethernet like ports and adding a vdi to a machine and you dont have a place the set it down, you just flip it into tablet and hold it in your forarm00:51
jamie_1_its a unpopular opnion i know00:52
leftyfbcrash cart00:52
OerHeksthe arch wiki gives clues, about touchpad building yourself and other issues that makes it not a certified linux machine00:52
jamie_1_leftyfb: im to lazy for that XD00:52
jamie_1_OerHeks: oh i know... its not very good in the sense of a machine at all... so many issues ive ran into00:53
jamie_1_but its company provided00:53
jamie_1_i didnt have to pay for it so i kinda live with it00:53
jamie_1_im pretty sure you can understand that much OerHeks00:54
jamie_1_well i think im gonna spin up 18.04 and see how it goes there00:56
jamie_1_hopefully it will work fine there00:56

craigbass76Why would a network card disappear all of a sudden?01:24
OerHekscraigbass76, hidden powermanagment?01:30
OerHeksdoes this occur after the same x of time, gives a clue to that01:31
user37im running linux mint on a thinkpad x220, and the cursor keeps moving and clicking on its own. does anyone know anything about this? is it a common issue? easy fix? (please say yes)01:31
craigbass76I'm not sure. I haven't had to bring one up manually in a while, so I'm googling in one room, and running back and forth to it. It just stopped coming up (I want to say a couple weeks ago, but might be a month) and I can't remember how I made it work. ifcfg -a shows it, but it's not active01:32
craigbass76OerHeks, ^^01:32
craigbass76ifup <-- I thought that was a command. Maybe once upon a time?01:33
OerHeksnormally the network manager takes care of this01:34
craigbass76It's a desktop, with an ethernet card, so I won't be dorking with wifi or passwords.01:34
craigbass76I can see it in network manager, but I don't see anything jumping out at me explaining what might ail it.01:34
OerHeksthis might be a hardware failure, hardware does wear and tear01:34
leftyfbsounds like it needs a kernel module/firmware to get built but you don't have the -extras package to do so when update-initramfs gets run01:35
OerHeksor a cable issue01:35
leftyfbone of my servers had the issue whenever a new kernel was installed and I had to reboot ... before I installed the -extras package that is01:35
leftyfbcraigbass76: when it's inaccessible, do you see it in lspci? Do you see it in /sys/class/net?01:36
craigbass76I've got lights on the card itself.01:38
craigbass76And it could have happened after an update, I don't remember exactly.01:38
leftyfbcraigbass76: ok, care to check any of the questions I asked?01:38
craigbass76Hang on... I've got my laptop out in the kitchen with an external monitor -- have to migrate...01:39
craigbass76leftyfb, I see the ethernet controller in lspci, and there is a symlink to a ../../devices/blahblah/enp0s25 in sys/class/net01:44
leftyfbcraigbass76: what version of ubuntu?01:45
Teleputeris anyone here01:45
craigbass76leftyfb, /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.con has a [ifupdown] managed=false section. I chaned it to true, and restarted NetworkManager, but nothing happened, so I se it back01:47
craigbass76my apologies for missing characters -- this keyboard is twacked -- part of why I was setting out at the table with it01:48
leftyfbcraigbass76: ok, so this is a desktop?01:48
leftyfbcraigbass76: if you see it in network manager, then just reconnect to it01:48
_aDWhere would be the appropriate place to report a possible security issue with the Ubuntu wiki?01:49
craigbass76Define network manager. Is that a GNOME GUI app? I'm on XFCE01:49
_aDI seem to have gotten lost in a maze of contact us pages, wiki security bug reporting and community posts, and can't find a sensible-looking GPG key for security@ubuntu.com01:49
leftyfb_aD: try #ubuntu-website01:50
_aDleftyfb: tyvm01:51
craigbass76On the icon I actually DO see up by the clock, I see Ethernet Network, but it's greyed out and right underneath I see "device not managed"01:51
leftyfbcraigbass76: I'm not familiar with what xfce uses to manage networking. I assume it's NetworkManager in the backend and needs the ifupdown set to true, but I really have no idea01:52
Kumoolit uses networkmanager, it auto starts gnome services as well01:56
craigbass76Well, /etc/network/interfaces doesn't list it. That might be a problem, no?01:56
=== deathonater is now known as Smeef
leftyfbcraigbass76: NetworkManager != /etc/network/interfaces01:57
Kumoolit launches nm-applet, so i imagine it uses netmanager01:57
=== andyhuzhill_ is now known as andyhuzhill
craigbass76leftyfb, ok, if I set a line in interfaces, then ifconfig enp0s25 up, I've got network02:06

leonardusah, that would make sense02:11
OerHeks "foobar2000 is an advanced freeware audio player [wine-i386 packed snap]"02:12

OerHeksif open source cannot handle it, i am not interested in the format02:17
core7when i try to boot ubuntu 18.04-desktop on my lenovo laptop - it hangs - no keys work - any ideas on how to debug it? I am trying to start it with live usb boot02:17
craigbass76leftyfb, I guess I can just run a script after I login that does the ifconfig up and dhclient commands...02:19

guivercspinningcat, I'd suggest providing more details, eg. your release of ubuntu, desktop (if not gnome/unity) etc.02:46

core7Anyone running ubuntu on recent lenovo laptops here? I have tried to boot ubuntu 18.04 / 10 - none works so far02:53
guivercdefault for 16.04 was Unity - are you running Ubuntu-GNOME LTS 16.04 ? (and not Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)02:54
guivercspinningcat, ^  (sorry forgot to direct question)02:54
spinningcatpanels are gone02:56
spinningcati guess it is LTS i am not sure02:56
guivercspinningcat, my question was if you're running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Unity desktop, not gnome) or Ubuntu-GNOME 16.04 LTS (gnome desktop)02:57
leftyfbfishcooker: you'll need to add it to your user cron, not root. And start it with:  export DISPLAY=:0 ; notify-send .......02:57
spinningcati am using gnome default02:57
spinningcatis there a command to be sure about that?02:58
guivercspinningcat, I don't know gnome on 16.04 (never used it), but I'd suggest looking in `gnome-tweak-tool` for options, and to see if you can disable extensions (if you add a gnome extension for a later/earlier version of gnome it can create problems - they are solved [usually] in you disable them)  -- but I'm no expert in gnome03:01
spinningcatactually i didnt add anything03:01
spinningcati just came home open computer and saw panels are gone03:02
leftyfbspinningcat: have you tried rebooting?03:03
guiverc(I'd 2nd lefty's comment, and yes it probably is gnome, I booted an older ubuntu & Unity has only a top panel)03:04
spinningcatalso enable unity from ccsm03:04
guivercspinningcat, gnome != unity.03:06
leftyfbspinningcat: echo $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP03:06
leftyfbok, that's not gnome03:07
spinningcatnow what will i do?03:08

raubHow can I setup the screen brightness to whatever I feel like in a desktop?03:24
raubUnder screen brightness all I see is "Dim screen: checkbox03:24
guivercraub, it is my understanding most desktops don't allow brightness (it's a laptop feature added to save battery life firstly, then more recently for outdoor use - neither of which apply with desktops)03:26
cyphexraub: most external monitors have a way to change the brightness on the device itself03:28
guivercraub, you can use apps like 'redshift' to create that function via settings, but it's more a hack to achieve it03:28
raubguiverc: thanks for the info. I am running ubuntu in an imac with a built-in 26" monitor. It is too bright for me03:28
raubas in I am having a headache. If this was a normal separate monitor I would be clicking on its controls03:28
guivercraub, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Redshift  & consider brightness=  or brightness-day=, brightness-night= ...03:29
raubguiverc: Thank. I will give it a try03:31
fishcookercool leftyfb it works, thanks03:43
raubguiverc: I see what you mean as it being a hack. I was hoping I could adjust power to the screen as in a laptop03:46
raubStill. thanks for the suggestion03:47
guivercraub, that program has great capacity to change colors/temperature/.. so even if not via brightness, with other settings you should be able (hopefully anyway) to achiwve what you need03:47

cyphexDoes anyone know how to fix mic static/crackling? I've tried everything I could find to no avail.04:54
cyphexThe microphone itself works fine (tested on my laptop). It's also not a hardware issue since everything wored fine under Windows on the same system.04:54
matsamancyphex: you're not talking about your laptop?04:57
cyphexmatsaman: No. The problem is with an external microphone on my desktop.04:57
matsamancyphex: you've looked through alsamixer? Sometimes multiple items can apply to a single in/out04:59
matsamanyou can use left/right arrow keys and tab to go through all the options04:59
matsamanthere's "mic boost", frequently, even04:59
cyphexI have looked through those.05:00
cyphexI turned mic boost all the way down, but the crackling persists.05:00
matsamanall the same connectors, cables? Same location?05:01
cyphexIt's definitely a software issue, but I have no idea how to pinpoint/resolve it.05:01
matsamancyphex: maybe this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture/Troubleshooting#Crackling_microphone05:02
cyphexI've done those. Disabling scheduling helped a little bit, but there is still crackling.05:03
cyphexAlso, I don't have an intel sound card as far as I can tell.05:04
matsamancyphex: really, what've you got?05:09
cyphexlspci says: Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Family 17h (Models 00h-0fh) HD Audio Controller05:10

cyphexThanks for your help :)05:29
matsamanyou could also try the aforementioned params but with different values05:31
cyphexI have. I've even tried different combinations. In my despair I reached the 5th page of google results.05:32
matsamancyphex: this might be the bug to watch: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19530305:34

OerHeksmaybe it is just the level of input and output in alsamixer, seen that before, level 50%05:37

ubottusvip: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want.  The installer is text based (rather than graphical as used on the Desktop DVD).

evgen_vasilevHi, I have hdd with windows 10 on it and enough free space for ubuntu. Windows did some strange thing to partitions: https://paste.pound-python.org/show/K5Pc2nfupdpBCxIzISqQ/ . The last "partition" is free space, lol. When I deleted it and created ext4 partition for ubuntu, windows failed to boot. Deleting ext4 partition and creating SFS partition back helped fix it. So how can I install ubuntu on this hdd and keep windows 10 working?09:44
tomreynKrerelath: do you know which graphics card you have there? you mentioned  xeon processor, those are mostly used in servers, but you are trying to setup a graphical desktop, right?09:47
=== tulsi is now known as Guest50651
KrerelathIntegrated graphics.09:47
evgen_vasilevDoes it mean that dual boot is now not possible?09:47
KrerelathI want the GUI interface on my server, and I read the Ubuntu server and desktop are the same except unbuntu desktop has the gui09:48
=== lotuspsychje_ is now known as lotuspsychje
KrerelathI had it working with CentOS before about a month back, ubuntu doesn't want to play ball though.09:49
tomreynevgen_vasilev: first of all, make windows work again. once it works, delete any partitions you don't want to use (from either windows or the ubuntu live / installer usb/cdrom/dvd). then just start the ubuntu installation.09:50
evgen_vasilevtomreyn: so it will help?09:51
tomreynevgen_vasilev: fixing windows will help fixing windows, and once that's done you will be able to install ubuntu just normally from the installer, no need to prepare any partitions or file systems for it.09:52
tomreynand then you should be able to multi boot09:53
tomreynKrerelath: that's mostly correct, yes, though there are some different defaults.09:53
evgen_vasilevtomreyn: i thought that if windows doesn't boot when there's ext4 partition on hdd, installing ubuntu instead of creating partition won't help. Or installer will fix it somehow?09:54
evgen_vasilevwindows is working now, I fixed it09:54
tomreynKrerelath: it is uncommon to run graphical desktops on server computers. their graphics chipsets are usually not meant for this task, are commonly very weak and just there so that you can get text output on screen.09:55
Krerelathtomreyn: So what do you recommend to get a GUI then? I had CentOS working perfectly with a GUI before.09:56
eject_ckKrerelath: what Xenon do you have ?09:56
tomreynKrerelath: what you can do, however, is to do X forwarding, this way the graphics computation happens on the computer connecting to the server.09:56
eject_cktomreyn: from my experience X forwarding performance is far from acceptable.09:58
tomreynKrerelath: so this was a general recommendation, and please keep it in mind. but if you had a graphical desktop working on this system previously and were happy with its performance then you can just install the same graphical desktop on ubuntu, it is probably available. do you remember which graphical desktop you had on centos?09:58
tomreyneject_ck: in my experience running a graphical desktop on a server is far from acceptable.09:59
KrerelathI have dual xenon E5520's09:59
KrerelathIt was just the one off of the default boot drive recommendation for a GUI, I think it was GNOME10:00
tomreynevgen_vasilev: the ubuntu installer ist able to install next to windows, in a way that both can boot.10:00
tomreynevgen_vasilev: so once you have windows bootable, you just need to install ubuntu. i'm not sure what SFS is, though, can you run and show the output of: sudo parted /dev/sdb print10:01
tomreyn^ from ubuntu live / installer10:02
tomreynKrerelath: so ubuntu 18.04 uses gnome 3, which has higher demands for graphics cards than older gnome versions. i assume centos may still be coming with gnome 210:03
KrerelathHang on, after the what seems like 99th boot attempt it got past the frozen screen.10:03
KrerelathRight, so how do you recommend I go about getting gnome 2 instead of three?10:04
tomreyn!recovery | Krerelath: if this fails again, you can also boot to recovery and run commands from there10:04
ubottuKrerelath: if this fails again, you can also boot to recovery and run commands from there: If your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode10:04
evgen_vasilevtomreyn: https://paste.pound-python.org/show/L0U7MDTJWORhGCxIqgAt/10:05
Krerelathtomreyn: I am a Linux noob, is there a way to revert to gnome 2 now that it has booted in?10:05
droelias_a: only browser in stick, car I want to keep my navigation data in stick10:07
tomreynevgen_vasilev: thanks, do you know which is which? you have 5.5 GB on sdb1, 500 MB on sdb2, flagged bootable, 80 GB ion sdb3 and 419 GB on sdb410:07
tomreynevgen_vasilev: also, what is on sda, the first hard disk?10:07
evgen_vasilevKrerelath: you can switch to tty, stop gdm (or whateved display manager you have), install gnome 2 and start it10:08
evgen_vasilevwithout reboots10:08
KrerelathHow does one switch to try and install gnome 2 then ditch gnome 3?10:09
elias_adro: I did that for years ago. The problem is that no one lets ppl to run binaries from USB stick anymore.10:09
droelias_a: what solution do u suggest?10:09
evgen_vasilevtomreyn: 5gb is windows liveusb (just written on hdd), 500mb is some windows partition, 80gb is actual windows system, 419gb is free space (windows made it a partition)10:10
tomreynevgen_vasilev: i don't think gnome2 is available on ubuntu 18.04 (assuming Krerelath has this version, since I don't think we were told, yes)10:10
KrerelathYes it is that version tomreyn.10:11
tomreynKrerelath: you can install xubuntu-desktop, though, which is gtk2 based10:11
evgen_vasilevtomreyn: sda is other hdd with system that is currently booted10:11
elias_adro: What OS are we talking about? Same machine or same few machines every time or should it work anywhere?10:11
eject_ckKrerelath: this Xeon doesn't have integrated GPU https://ark.intel.com/products/40200/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5520-8M-Cache-2-26-GHz-5-86-GT-s-Intel-QPI-, what GPU / motherboard do you have ?10:11
eject_cktomreyn: I meant running X remotely is very poor performance.10:11
droelias_a: just for ubuntu10:11
elias_adro: There are ready made windows versions https://portableapps.com/apps/internet10:12
KrerelathThere is no added GPU I know that for a fact and I do not know the mobo10:12
elias_adro: I've never seen a linux implementation of that. It is surely doable.10:13
eject_ckKrerelath: show dmidecode and lspci output ?10:13
tomreynevgen_vasilev: okay so from the ubuntu live / installer start the (gnome) disks partition manager and delete the unneeded partition, then start the installation and select sdb as the target. the boot loader probbaly still needs to go to the first hdd, though, which is sda.10:14
tomreynKrerelath: so where's your boot at now?10:15
evgen_vasilevtomreyn: I know that, just thought that if widows stops booting if there's something else on hdd, simple installation won't help...10:18
evgen_vasilevit worked before windows updated :)10:18
Krerelatheject_ck it is a Proliant BL460c G610:19
evgen_vasilevfor at least 5 years :)10:19
tomreynevgen_vasilev: i don't see why windows would stop booting if there's something else on this hdd.10:19
evgen_vasilevbecause microsoft hates linux?10:19
evgen_vasilevmaybe that's their dirty trick to stop people from dualbooting10:19
tomreyni was more looking for a technical explanation10:19
Krerelathtomreyn: I got it to randomly boot in to the desktop once, then the next reboot it has frozen again.10:20
zamanfI have a samsung tab 10.5 and I want to know if I can install ubuntu10:20
evgen_vasilevtomreyn: well "if ext4 partition exists: boot error" :)10:20
zamanfsamsung tab 10.5 s10:20
tomreynevgen_vasilev: i don't think windows intentionally takes measures to prevent dual booting, no.10:20
evgen_vasilevtomreyn: maybe you know whom I could ask about this issue? microsoft support?10:21
tomreynevgen_vasilev: many other systems wun fine with a windows installation on the same disk as an ubuntu installation, which normally goes to ext4, so this is just not a generic behaviour.10:21
tomreynevgen_vasilev: sure, not us surely.10:22

=== help_needed is now known as help_needped
=== help_needped is now known as help_needed
tomreynourea_: thinking it over, you have no internet connection, the nvidia driver is not working, so you can't run a graphical desktop to configure nthe network there. and without network you can't fix the system. so i guess your easiest recovery can actually be to reinstall.11:59
ourea_systemd-resolve --status does not give any proper ip address11:59
help_neededtomreyn: just hangs, froze, no logs what so ever11:59
tomreynourea_: do you usually use wireless for the network or a wired (ethernet) connection?11:59
TJ-sub526: this is one I did for someone else earlier this week: http://iam.tj/projects/ubuntu/mmc_alcor-dkms.tar.gz12:00
tomreynourea_: oh then it's strange that the network didnt start up, unless it's a result of the half done upgrade. which it probably is. so i guess you need to reinstall.12:00
TJ-sub526: the problem is you cannot build mbcs because it #includes headers that aren't available, and even if you copied those into the dkms package and modified mbcs.c, those in turn rely on many other architecture-specific headers12:01
tomreynourea_: you *could* try booting to recovery and enable network there and see if this gets you online12:01
tomreynourea_: if that's the case we can continue12:01
tomreyn!recovery | ourea_12:01
ubottuourea_: If your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode12:01
lotuspsychjetomreyn: cant he retry the upgrade from tty somehow?12:02
TJ-ourea_: is the IPv4 address of your LAN's gateway, or the PC itself ?12:02
TJ-ourea_: 16/168/ :)12:02
lotuspsychjehelp_needed: for the volunteers to be able helping you, they will need more information, there are always logs somewhere12:03
tomreynhelp_needed: sounds like a ##hardware issue, not an ubuntu issue then. have you updated your bios and set "power supply idle control" to the non default setting of "typical current"?12:03
tomreynlotuspsychje: not without networking, no12:03
ourea_Tj- LAN's gateway12:05
sub526TJ-: Ok thanks for sharing this example12:05
ourea_I'll try the recovery mode12:06
TJ-ourea_: so the PC has an IPv4 address too, reported by "ip addr show" ?12:07
liquid451fahrenhHi. Is there a way to decrease wireless mouse (logitech) cursor speed in ubuntu 16.04 ? I have set the cursor acceleration to minimum,in settings,and nothing has changed12:09
liquid451fahrenhis just too sensitive,a little move,and it slides half the screen12:09
ourea_TJ-: ip addr show return all kind of info, but no ip address12:11
ourea_which lune would it be?12:11
ourea_would it help to disable the nvidia driver? Could the upgrade be restarted in some way?12:13
TJ-ourea_: so the PC doesn't have an IPv4 address, so you need to add one. To do that first identify the Wired interface name, then do "sudo ip addr add dev <ifname>" (e.g. "sudo ip addr add dev enp2s0" )12:13
TJ-ourea_: then you can test with "ping" to reach the router12:14
TJ-ourea_: if that works you can then add a DNS server manually too, to get name resolution, which then should give you options for repairing12:15
TJ-ourea_: alternatively if the PC is a Desktop, then there's a tool already avaialable that usually does all this. type "nmcli con" and you should get a list of connections. Identify your usual connection name (maybe "Wired connection 1") then do "nmcli con up 'Wired connection 1' ")12:16

TomyWorkI'm using kubuntu 14.04 with a current firefox package. the fonts look bad. chromium looks better. this user describes the same phenomenon: https://superuser.com/questions/1034372/atrocious-font-rendering-in-firefox-on-linux12:43

TomyWorkmy colleague (who either has 18.04 or 18.10) does not have the same issue12:43
JmabsdBooting the Ubuntu 16.04 installer off an USB memory stick on my Xeon with a Radeon Vega 64, i get gibberish on the screen.12:44
Jmabsdtrying with the "install vga=773" option doesn't help anything12:44
tarzeauJmabsd: nomodeset?12:44
Jmabsdtarzeau: so "install nomodeset"[enter] on the boot prompt?12:45
gigirockJmabsd, look at bios maybe something like optimus or other are flagged , how many gpu are present in that pc ?12:45
tarzeauJmabsd: https://askubuntu.com/questions/38780/how-do-i-set-nomodeset-after-ive-already-installed-ubuntu12:46
TomyWorkso, what has changed between 14.04 and 18.10 to make the same firefox version behave so differently?12:47
gigirockJmabsd, tarzeau seems the trouble is about a Radeon card normally those tricks are applied for nvidia12:47
Jmabsdyey worked, thanks12:47
TomyWork(the issue isn't specific to new firefox versions. it has existed at least as long as i've been using firefox on kubuntu 14.04)12:48
gigirockTomyWork, from 14 to 18 there 4 years of informatic12:48
Jmabsdjust to try something i did "install nomodeset fb=off vga=normal", this gave me the installer in text mode, great.12:48
TomyWorkgigirock or maybe just different default settings? font packages installed by default? optional libraries installed by default?12:48
gigirockJmabsd, ah ok text installer for a graphics system funny12:48
JmabsdDebian and Ubunutu look so much the same =)12:49
gigirockTomyWork, the kern is different so all the drivers also are, afaik the graphics server were diffrerent as so on12:50

gigirockTomyWork, if we have to wait bsd or rpm based ( $ ) distros , we have some amateur of different OS , but with debian the linux exploded12:58

Jmabsdin UEFI, the clean way to edit grub.cfg is just to mount the EFI partition and edit it with VIM, isn't it?13:30
TJ-Jmabsd: errr, no :)13:34
TJ-Jmabsd: there are 2 grub.cfg files generated. The one in /EFI/ubuntu/ or /EFI/BOOT/ which tells GRUB's EFI loader where to find its root/prefix, and the one in the GRUB root (OS sees as /boot/grub/ )13:36
TJ-Jmabsd: the former generated by grub-install, the latter generated from /etc/default/grub options by update-grub13:36
TJ-OnkelTem: you'll need to boot from another install (on USB?) or the Live Installer environment13:38
OnkelTemTJ-: why? Isn't there a boot option to just boot into tty?13:42
cryptodanOnkelTem: recovery mode should stop here https://www.lifeonnetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/recoverymode_2.png and not go to X13:42
TJ-OnkelTem: you said it fails to boot to recovery, which is the boot option, unless you want a kernel command-line override?13:42
cryptodanOnkelTem: then from what you just said you aren't entering recovery mode kernel, and your grub is configured to be hidden as you said there is no menu to select recovery option in ##linux13:43
OnkelTemcryptodan: no, GURB is visible, and I select recovery mode from.  But it doesn't bring the menu13:44
TJ-OnkelTem: I've seen that on occasion too; usually 'friendly-recovery' package is missing or disabled13:45
OnkelTemfrom the menu*13:45
cryptodanOnkelTem: then your kernel install might not be fully there if the menu doesnt show up13:45
TJ-OnkelTem: you can edit the kernel command-line, add "systemd.unit=emergency.target"13:45
OnkelTemoh that, good! thanks, I'll try13:45
TJ-OnkelTem: be aware emergency.target will only start systemd as PID 1 and a shell, no other services, but at least it should help you regain control13:46
TJ-OnkelTem: you can start services as needed then with 'systemctl start xxxxx'13:47

JmabsdTJ-: any other way to fix it or do I need to reinstall it?15:27
TJ-Jmabsd: If it is the Ubuntu LiveISO image that is built to be able to boot in either UEFI or Legacy mode, it has GRUB in the UEFI removable media path /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI - so if that isn't being started the PC firmware is at fault15:28

TJ-Jmabsd: "ls" to list the devices. You should see things like hd0, hd1 and (hdX,gptY)15:44

mitchellI ran this script on a derivative, GalliumOS, and then my X crashed. it won't load on reboot either. I think my fonts are wrecked or something. can anyone please advise how to fix this?17:34
lotuspsychje!derivatives | mitchell sorry17:35
ubottumitchell sorry: The Ubuntu channels can only provide support for Ubuntu and its official flavors, since other distributions and derivatives have repository and software changes. So please use their dedicated support venues, for example: Linux Mint (#linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org), Kali Linux (#kali-linux), and LXLE (#lxle)17:35
tewardmitchell: you can try in ##linux, but we don't support other distros or derivatives (like GalliumOS)17:36
mitchellI asked there too, but maybe some other thoughts could help. my gui is completely unusable right now, and I'm in the middle of a lot of work17:37
tewardmitchell: well, it's offtopic here, so...17:38
aqdmitchell: i don't see why fonts could cause X crash. you're deleting ttf i assume? nowadays the font mechanism in X itself is unused (unless you run xterm) and only a few standard bitmap fonts are still registered, not ttf. ttf are loaded and rendered by apps themselves, so you might want to check X log or .xsession error17:40
mitchelldo you know where those are?17:42
aqdunless you deleted some fallback font and there is no other, so certain UI elements ended up with zero size (0 height menubar etc) and the lack of proper checks cause a complete desktop crash, but unlikely to be X server itself17:43
aqdX log is /var/log/Xorg.0.log17:43
aqdand X session (desktop environment log for currnet user) is ~/.xsession-errors17:44
aqddoes your login manager still run at boot? no?17:44
aqdthere might also be /var/log/Xorg.1.log (0, 1, .. is for different X servers, login manager runs its own there might be two)17:44

xamithandid you setup the vhost right20:44
^amraiptables -L is empty20:44
^amraI setup Listen 80 and point the Virtualhost *:8020:44
lordcirth_Pricey, you'll want to disable cloud-init, yeah20:44
phenilordcirth_, i was defaulting to en_CA.UTF-8 thank you. i reconfigured to en_US.UTF-8 and will logout to see if fixed20:45
dimisdas^amra when you visit IP:80 does it work?20:45
Priceylordcirth_: Not sure I do...20:45
^amradimisdas, what do you mean? the domain is not new something about year or 220:45
^amrayes ofcourse20:45
lordcirth_^amra, what error do you get in the browser?20:45
dimisdas^amra if you dig domain.com on your local box, do you see the correct IP?20:45
^amralordcirth_, no errors when use the hostname20:46
^amraAnd can see the site when use ip:8020:46
^amradimisdas, in ;; ANSWER SECTION: yes the ip is correct20:46
dimisdas^amra might seem like a stupid question, but have you restarted Apache2 after changing the config?20:47
^amradimisdas, yes20:47
Priceylordcirth_: Confirmed, no need to disable anything existing. Added new config to a new file in /etc/netplan, netplan generate then merged it together, netplan apply and all is good.20:48
^amrans record is correct and I can see it from local and ext servers20:48
^amradimisdas, ip:port is working from local and ext20:48
^amradimisdas, but not working hostname:port from ext20:48
lordcirth_Pricey, ah, all good then20:48
dimisdasthen probably something wrong with Apache2 config. Do you have php installed?20:48

lordcirth_^amra, does dig work?20:49
^amradimisdas, I don't use php20:49
^amralordcirth_, yes20:49
^amradig working from ext and local20:49
dimisdas^amra try "php -S domain:8080" if it's installed20:50
dimisdas^amra it will start a small webserver from the command line20:50

qwebirc3507Hiya, I've just installed Ubuntu, and after restarting, Ubuntu doesn't start up, after inputting my encryption password, about 10 seconds go by and it freezes, also I hear a pop in my headphones when that happens21:05
qwebirc3507The only way it starts up is through recovery mode21:06
lordcirth_qwebirc3507, press Shift when booting to get the Grub menu, edit the boot entry, and remove 'quiet splash' from the kernel line. Try booting that.21:06
qwebirc3507Okay thank you, I shall return if this doesnt work (I currently have no other devices to access IRC )21:08
amcsianyone else experiencing this sort of "bug" where with Ubuntu 18.10, any SSH connection to any server times out some time between 1-30 minutes?21:24
qwebirc37010Can someone help please. I'm trying to extend a disk on Ubuntu with Google Cloud it's running Plesk web host edition and no matter what I try it won't do it. Can anyone help please?21:24
amcsiI tried all kinds of SO posts to ensure my ssh config has decent timeout values. I even confirmed that I edited the right file by dumping the runtime config.21:25
amcsiThis also affects applications like MySQL Workbench when I try to connect to a mysql server tunneled through an SSH server; the application just fails to make any query after a while21:25
leftyfbqwebirc37010: you are better contacting your cloud host support21:26
qwebirc37010Thank you21:26
lordcirth_amcsi, does this happen if you are active? Or only when idle?21:26
amcsilordcirth_, both21:27
amcsiit doesn't matter21:27
amcsino matter what I do, it happens21:27
lordcirth_amcsi, anything in sshd logs? journalctl --unit ssh21:27
amcsiI really hope the issue is not with my home directory being encrypted21:27
qwebirc96076Heyya, I was here approx. 15 mins ago with a problem where my system won't boot, I was reccomended to remove "quiet splash" iirc and this did not work, though it gets to "A start job is running for detect the available GPUs and deal with any system changes" I let this go for 10 minutes but nothing happened...21:27
amcsilemme see21:27
amcsilordcirth_, oh, you mean in one of the servers I connect to?21:28
lordcirth_amcsi, yes21:28
powerninjahello, I'm on ubuntu 16.4 and getting "Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?”  is there a safe way stop apt.sytem.daily thanks?21:28
lordcirth_If there's a timeout, hopefully either the server or the client will say something about why21:29
lordcirth_powerninja, it is probably best to let it run this time, then disable it. Interrupting it would require fixing21:29
lordcirth_powerninja, https://linuxconfig.org/disable-automatic-updates-on-ubuntu-18-04-bionic-beaver-linux#h6-1-disable-automatic-updates-from-command-line21:30
powerninjaI'm using packer builds,  so probably sudo systemctl stop apt-daily.timer ?21:30
powerninjaThanks lordcirth will take a look21:30
amcsilordcirth_, no timeout there. Just normal stuff.21:30
lordcirth_amcsi, does it say connection closed?21:30
lordcirth_amcsi, have you tried ssh -vvv ?21:31
amcsilordcirth_, I'm pretty sure the fault isn't with the server, because this happens with _all_ servers. And the same servers I've accessed before on an older Ubuntu machine and it didn't have any problems; it just stayed connected to all of them.21:31
amcsilordcirth_, I'll try ssh -vvv21:31
lordcirth_amcsi, you could also try adding "ServerAliveInterval 120" to your ~/.ssh/config21:32
amcsilordcirth_, I hope I'll see something when it "times out". The symptom by the way isn't that it exits; it keeps the SSH terminal open, and it does not respond to anything anymore whatsoever; not even Ctrl+C/D to exit the terminal. I must to click on the X button to exit -.-21:33
pjsAny word on apt updates? I'm assuming many have seen the remote code execution bug in apt just released?21:33
lordcirth_pjs, what CVE?21:33
