KareemApt get uses snaps too00:00
jcottonthought you needed snap install for that00:00
KareemWhen i install spotify using apt get its installed as snaps00:00
glickso basically, snap is the new package for ubuntu?00:00
glickcan you configure them so they dont auto update?00:01
tomreynKareem: i disagree. apt-get does not handle snaps.00:08
tomreynnor apt00:08
Eickmeyerglick, Kareem: No, apt does NOT use snaps. It uses debs from the Ubuntu repositories. snap uses snaps and has a similar syntax to apt.00:09
Gerowenglick: snaps are self contained software distribution packages, like flatpaks.  They contain most if not all dependencies necessary to run the software and are more "segregated" I guess you could say, from the rest of the system.  They're not necessarily a replacement for deb in all scenarios, but they make deploying applications easier because you don't have to worry about whether or not a gazillion different distros or flavors will have all the00:16
Gerowendependencies for your application to run, like you might if you used debs.  You install a snap and it brings with it everything it needs to run as part of the package, and when you remove it, it takes all of that with it without bothering other applications on the system.  There's a lot of technical info you can read up on how they work, I'm kind of a noob, but they're pretty neat based on the few I've used on my desktop and home server applications, :-)00:16

texlatomreyn, My clock using date and time shows Mon Apr 22 7.52 central time00:55
texlatomreyn, That is USA00:56
tomreynah, i was just going to ask if it's central to the world, or central to the world from a U.S: perspective.00:57

tomreyntexla: i tried all three servers, all report the same timestamp within the file.01:05
tomreynpnwise: i never used fanontrol, but assume that it will not reset values when it is uninstalled. rather, you should reboot. then, linux will no longer try to control the fans (unless it has a separate driver for it for this specific hardware series, i guess)01:09
pnwiseyeah I tried that few times01:09
tomreynpnwise: yuo can use lmsensors / sensord to kepe an eye on the temperatures.01:09
pnwiseIt does not work like that, it seems it modified some files and set the fans to manual control01:09
pnwiseBut I can't find where is that01:10
tomreyneven after rebooting? maybe /etc/sysctl.* or /etc/mod*01:11

tomreyni had a typo, it's:  #ubuntu-offtopic01:17

pnwiseThere is no /etc/sysfs* in ubunutu 18.0401:18
texlatomreyn, thanks for the help will try for a couple of days and see what happens01:18
R13osepnwise: snapd is installed01:19
pnwiseIf you have opera installed with snapd it wont work01:19
pnwiseI am not sure if you can install opera another way01:19
pnwiseI don't use it, but found out the other day when I was sending laptop for my aunt01:20
R13oseFlash was working before01:20
tomreynpnwise: you're right, /etc/sysfs* doe snot exist by default on 18.0401:20
pnwiseNo browser installed with snap will get permissions to work with flash, no matter you click that allow button multiple timmes01:20
pnwiseI personally remove snapd from the computers I use, but forgot for this one01:21
tomreynpnwise: /etc/sysfs* is provided by sysfsutils, not installed yb default01:21
pnwiseLike I do not know much details, just noticed that01:21

pinkosHi I’m installing Ubuntu and it asks me for a secure boot password.   Do I have to use this password every time i start my computer?01:41
pinkosI’m confused about the point of this.  Is this a password I have to remember long term?01:42
axisystomreyn: in case first one not responding01:42
tomreynpinkos: you have "secure boot" enabled in your mainboard firmware configuration. this is a hardware and firmware assisted security functionality which is meant to prevent bad software from running on your computer. not everyone agrees you want it enabled, but you can choose to do so.01:43
tomreynaxisys: use DNS01:44
tomreynpinkos: if you will use it, you will now need to set a passphrase, and remember this long term, yes. you should actually note it down and store it somewhere safe.01:45
tomreynpinkos: you will not be prompted for it every time you boot, but when you later decide to disable it, or to reset your computer.01:45
tomreynalso for installing another operating system it may be needed01:46

ChetManlyI;m in the installer. If I check install third-party graphics and wifi and additonal media formats, I have to configure a password for secure boot, why is this?03:40
tomreynChetManly: this is not related to one another.03:41
tomreynthe passphrase yuo are prompted to set there is about https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UEFI/SecureBoot03:42
cfhowlettChetManly, you can easily do all of that post-install03:42
tomreynyou're seeing this passphrase prompt because you have "secure boot" enabled in your mainboard firmware configuration. this is a hardware and firmware assisted security functionality which is meant to prevent bad software from running on your computer. not everyone agrees you want it enabled, but you can choose to do so. if you will use it, you will now need to set a passphrase, and remember this long term, yes. you should actually note it down03:44
tomreynand store it somewhere safe. you will not be prompted for it every time you boot, but when you later decide to disable it, or to change some settings, you will be prompted again.03:44
tomreynChetManly: ^03:45
tomreyncfhowlett: secureboot enrollment post install if secure boot is enabled?03:45
cfhowlettno, I meant third party graphics and additional media formats03:46
tomreynoh ok03:46
ausjkeneed a tool to extract and display comments on the left while code on the right, there were a few but i forgot the name03:47
tomreynChetManly: sorry, i was actually wrong about the relation between 3rd party drivers and the password prompt03:48
tomreynChetManly: it IS related. i just hadn't seenthis screen lately.03:48
tomreynthe reason is that some of these third party drivers require you to disable secure boot. but to disable secureboot, you need to set a secureboot administration password, since only when that is set it can actually be disabled. quite counter intuitive.03:50
tomreyn(but that's not ubuntus fault)03:51

explodesthat is whack. can you reformat it? maybe the file table is broken04:50
Kendos-KenlenBashing-om isn't GDE working on Wayland now?04:50
explodesSorry, I can't debug this, I have to go to bed04:51
explodesgood luck m804:51
OneM_IndustriesEeeh, the 153 GB that remains is kinda important, and I don't think I have enough space to move it. Any way to fix it in place?04:51
OneM_IndustriesOk, goodnight! Thank you!04:51
explodesmaybe make a new partition on that disk04:51
Kendos-KenlenAnyway, by default, ubuntu-drivers does not detect the 2080ti. That's why I use to install the driver manually. However I would like to qutomate driver (and some other setups) install.04:51

explodeswait, no that won't work ..04:51
explodeswell maybe04:51
explodesshuffle it around lol04:52
OneM_IndustriesMight have to. Thank you!04:52
Kendos-Kenlenbut it seems that without the graphic-drivers PPA, it's not possible to get it...04:52
fosslinuxOneM_Industries: what's du say?04:52
Kendos-KenlenIs it possible to make a package automatically add a PPA/the corresponding keys?04:52
fosslinuxKendos-Kenlen: I think? so, using hooks04:53
fosslinuxI think04:53
fosslinuxdon't quote me on that04:53
fosslinuxand I don't know how to do it04:53
Kendos-KenlenI thought about it too, but not sure if it's the recommended way to do things...04:54
OneM_Industriesfosslinux: Didn't seem to show some of the files, but: https://pastebin.com/85MEP71Q04:55
Kendos-KenlenBasically, my idea was to make my own PPA and distribute a package named after my company name, that would install all the PPA, drivers and software we need, so in case of re-install, it's straightforward for users.04:55
Bashing-omKendos-Kenlen: 2080ti ? That bleeding edge card ? -- what shows - lspci -k|grep -iEA5 'vga|3d' - ?04:55
OneM_IndustriesUnless I'm reading that wrong, that isn't 1.2 TB of stuff.04:55

OneM_IndustriesWhat should I do after that is done?05:02

OneM_IndustriesJust copying the important stuff over to another drive I had sitting around. Did you want me to do a disk image of it?05:03
fosslinuxthat backup05:03
fosslinuxOnce it's done, find how big the folder is05:04
fosslinuxwhere you copied it too05:04
OneM_IndustriesIt's only copying over 153GB.05:04

OneM_IndustriesNope. *05:06
fosslinuxhow old is this drive?05:06
OneM_IndustriesLess than 2 years.05:06
fosslinuxat this point, either your drive has errors, or the partition is messed up05:07

PharaohHi All! Earlier, dfkqn_ told us that one can no longer place .desktop files on the desktop in the newer nautilus. What are the alternatives to this? I have a stand-alone java prog with a desktop shortcut.05:39
TJ-Pharaoh: there is a mix of terms there. A freedesktop.org "standard" .desktop file is a text file with a particular format, and is found in /usr/share/applications/ or /usr/local/share/applications/, or $HOME/.local/share/applications/ - this is separate from the file-manager's 'Desktop' directory representation05:46
PharaohTJ - ok.05:46
PharaohAlso, any ideas on chrome blocking flash?05:47
TJ-Pharaoh: putting a "myapp.desktop" file in one of those directories should make it appear in the DE's menus and be launchable05:47
PharaohTJ:Thank you!05:47
TJ-Pharaoh: Yes; sounds like a great idea, blocking Flash!05:47
doug16kya block it plz05:48
doug16knormally at least05:48
doug16kweb browsers got 400x bigger and use 25x more ram so we dont need flash for that anymore :D05:49
TJ-Pharaoh: you'd usually put the .desktop file in $HOME/.local/share/applications/ if its a per-user launcher, in /usr/local/share/applications/ if it is a 'local' install (not from apt/package manager). Regular archive packages will always use /usr/share/applications/05:49
TJ-doug16k: w3m has resisted that trend :)05:50
PharaohFirefox is cool with it, chrome/chromium started blocking flash post upgrade to 19.04.05:50

If I log out, switch session to Wayland, (using the onboard intel card), there is next to no tearing, and performance is great. I want to use the Nvidia card always, and I want it on max performance. Any help is appreciated.06:45

thefatmaHey guys, can some one please explain to me what is globbing feature and what does it mean the expansion before the command is ran in simpler words or examples?07:14
TJ-thefatma: see "man 7 glob"07:17
thefatmaTJ- : couldn't understand it "globbing is the operation that expands a wild card pattern"? and then some rules below it with ? , [ .  *07:21
thefatmaI need more simple word / example explanation if possible :3, does it mean that if you lets say use "find with an *" it gives you all the options with an *?07:22
thefatmaAnd what is the "expanding before running command actually means"07:22
TJ-thefatma: "wildcard" means a symbol that can represent zero/one or more other symbols07:22
TJ-thefatma: so 'the*a' woiuld match 'thefatma' and 'there was no viola'07:23
thefatmaso in this case the so called "wildcards" is a refference to the symbols ( * ,  [ ,  ? )07:24
TJ-thefatma: but 'the?a' would not match your nickname; since '?' matches only one symbol07:24
thefatmaMeaning the 'the*a' searches the letter a in whatever scope we give it to search in, and then prints out what it found, the 'the?a' i didn't fully understand what do you mean by matches only one symbol07:26
thefatmaWhat does it actually look for ?07:26

pragmaticenigmanescius: You'll need to provide more details about the drive. Usually, most drives have internal firmware that controls power saving. In my experience, there are tools from the manufacturer to control those settings, but they are only available with tools built for windows (not compatible with Wine either)12:44
nesciuspragmaticenigma: I have two of those, one is connected to my armbian box which does not have this 'issue'12:46

DrManhattancan't hdparm control that?12:48
pragmaticenigmanescius: Whether it's the device or the OS... I won't know until you provide details about the device12:48
DrManhattanyeah hdparm -S controls that, I think12:49
pragmaticenigmaDrManhattan: That all depends on if the software in question supports the device. Since they haven't told us the device, it's not a good idea to just take a shot in the dark that a program may or may not work.12:50

blackflowglick: in bionic, you install gnome-tweaks, start it, and then disable the desktop icons13:16

tomreynyou're welcome to ask in #ubuntu-offtopic14:57
donofrio_what is the diffrence package wise installing xubuntu-desktop vs xfce-* and xfce*?14:58
pax_rhosdonofrio_: probably xubuntu-desktop is a meta package that consists of a bunch of xfce* packages, some of which you might not need.14:59
donofrio_kewl just wondered14:59
marcogmonteirotomreyn well its a ubuntu server since I've been on a apache channel and the problem its not from there I asked here.. but ok14:59
OerHeksdonofrio_, try installing with the -s function, -simulate15:00
tomreyndonofrio_: compare "apt depends" outputs for both15:00
pragmaticenigmadonofrio_: xubuntu-desktop is a meta package that includes everything needed to get XFCE installed on your computer. It will ensure that everything needed is installed, but there may be additional packages included which could be removed after the fact if you choose.15:00
pragmaticenigmadonofrio_: It will also configure itself to the login screen as well as other system level adjustments to integrate more smoothly with the computer15:01
tomreynmarcogmonteiro: find out which software you have installed on the ubuntu server which interprets these uploaded files and seek support with them. it's likely libreoffice / python uno related15:03

=== SimonNL is now known as SimonNL_Afk
pax_rhoslordcirth_: I'm trying to solve a problem where I need to make files from production be available on stage, but I don't want to physically copy, yet stage needs to write/delete own files to the same dir over production's data, but the changes on stage must not get back to production.15:24
pax_rhosso it looks like I need some monster of fusefs, autofs and layerfs15:24
tomreynpax_rhos: rsync or nfs to make the files available on staging + overlayfs to prevent source data modification but still allow writes.15:28
pax_rhostomreyn: rsync as a mount?15:28
tomreynno need for autofs, have fstab mounts (with nfs), and don't use sshfs for anything serious.15:28

melonipragmaticenigma glad to know that15:35
tomreynpax_rhos: hmm actually yes if they disconnect you might want that15:35
pax_rhostomreyn: but will overlayfs feel fine if underlaying fs gets unmounted due to a disconnect?15:36
lordcirth_tomreyn, pax_rhos I recommend systemd automounting rather than autofs, if you are using 18.04+15:37
tomreynpax_rhos: you shouldnt have the disconnect happen in the first placee. i guess all layers will break and you'll run into timeouts on the top if that hasppens15:37
pax_rhoslordcirth_: afaiu automount is for 'startup' mounting, not for remounting upon disconnection15:38
pax_rhostomreyn: yeah, and errors and bugs should not exist.15:39
lordcirth_pax_rhos, automount will attempt to mount every time the mountpoint is accessed.15:39
pax_rhoslordcirth_: oh, good to know15:39
pax_rhoswell, then it is essentially the same as autofs15:39
lordcirth_Yes, except not an extra package, and it's one extra option in /etc/fstab instead of its own configs15:40
tomreynpax_rhos: so if the network is not stable enough for nfs (which can be configured to be very forgiving) to sustain connectivity you will need to copy. see above.15:40
lordcirth_You might want to use something to sync the two sides on a best-effort basis15:41
pax_rhosIMO copying sucks, syncing sucks less and net mount is the best choice15:42
lordcirth_mount is best - if you can get it to work on your network.15:44

lordcirth_EFI requires a fat32 /boot/efi17:09
kiwi_41opps sorry, back17:09
unimatrix9hi everyone17:10
AnthaasIs there an Ubuntu equivalent of MacOS's text replace?17:10
lordcirth_Anthaas, could you give an example of what you want to do? I am not familiar with MacOS.17:10
lordcirth_unimatrix9, hi17:10
unimatrix9on ubuntu 18.04 with firefox , i never get firefox to go fullscreen, it always show the 'tabs' , is there a way around this ?17:10
AnthaasFor example, type :foo: and have it automatically replace with some arbitrary text.17:11
lordcirth_unimatrix9, press F1117:11
lordcirth_Anthaas, in what program? Anywhere?17:11
leftyfbunimatrix9: no, that is how Firefox works. There might be an addon for that.17:11
lordcirth_Anthaas, A preset bit of text, or typed in at the time?17:11
AnthaasWell, ideally I'd map keys to values.17:12
xmetaljust pressed F11 here and it went full screen17:12
unimatrix9but with tab ? i presume17:12
AnthaasSo :foo: might replace with "Bar", but :example: might expand to something else.17:12
leftyfbunimatrix9: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fullscreen_plus/   found on google by searching "firefox fullscreen without tabs"17:12
lordcirth_Anthaas, oh, so like any time you type this macro, it gets replaced?17:12
pragmaticenigmaAnthaas: most of the time the text editor is what supports those features, sublime text is an example. I don't know if there is a Linux text editor that does that.17:13
groupersHas anyone used SSS for AD auth? I'm looking for a way to allow AD users to change their default shell.17:13
AnthaasVim can do it.17:13
AnthaasBut I want it anywhere.17:13
lordcirth_Anthaas, yeah, I don't think that's easily doable. However, what you *could* do is make a script that you trigger with a key combo, type your macro name, <enter> and it pastes that thing.17:13
seanrdevlordcirth_: https://pasteboard.co/IbuIBLY.jpg17:18
seanrdevlordcirth_: No fat32 option available in Ubuntu Server install17:18
lordcirth_seanrdev, what about it?17:18
lordcirth_Well, firstly, you can't make the ESP on a LV17:19
seanrdevlordcirth_: Ah. So I must make the partition directly on the disk. Does that mean the remaining disk cannot be used as a LV17:20
lordcirth_seanrdev, like I said, /dev/sda1 as ESP, /dev/sda2 as LVM PV17:20
kiwi_41Anybody know why my new apache2 config works when I use www and goes to my original server domain when I don't use www? I have vhost setup on port 80 with ServerName and ServerAlias setup for www and non www. Am I missing anything else? Like override settings?17:20
tewardkiwi_41: browser caching?17:21
lordcirth_kiwi_41, do you have any site that *isn't* a vhost?17:21
lordcirth_Oh, yeah check for cached 301's17:22
kiwi_41teward you genuis.17:22

cheeseandspamHi. So I have Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS and it runs fine except if I leave Chromium open (Version 73.0.3683.86 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu 18.04 (64-bit)). It can then occasionally freeze the system to where the system is unusable (the mouse moves, but I can't open anything, inc the Terminal to kill)17:43
cheeseandspamI don't understand how Chromium can do this. Is it taking advantage of some hardware acceleration that is then misbehaving?17:44
cheeseandspamIs there a key combination that I can drop to the terminal with? (CTRL+ALT+F1 doesn't work for instance)17:45
pragmaticenigmacheeseandspam: It is not recommended to leave browser windows open indefinately... The behavior you are experiencing is likely due to one of the pages you browsed and having a memory leak in the JavaScript it is programmed to use17:45
john_doe_jrHow would I break up a text file by sentence?17:46
cheeseandspampragmaticenigma, yeah, sounds likely, but I don't understand how it can bring a linux system to it's knees.. Not that I'm knowledgable, but aren't there failsafes to stop this sort of thing17:46
cheeseandspamjohn_doe_jr, you'll want regex, google around "regex sentence" you should find things like https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20320719/constructing-regex-pattern-to-match-sentence17:47
pragmaticenigmacheeseandspam: There are no failsafes. It is completely up to the application developers to attempt to include that sort of feature. Chromium has such features built in, but that doesn't mean a malicious party hasn't found a new attack vector or method around it17:47
tomreynjohn_doe_jr: also consider to ask on the channel of your favourite scripting or programming language, such as #bash17:47
pragmaticenigmajohn_doe_jr: There aren't many tools for natural language editing like that. If you mean to break up the file by line, that can be easily done17:47
cheeseandspamthe malicious party seems to be Facebook. :D I need to access it and so use Chromium to sandbox it, as Firefox is my faily driver :)17:48
=== ca_cabotage is now known as Guest14077
cheeseandspamAnd yes, when I don't leave the Chromium window open, it'll work forever. But sometimes, y;know, you forget17:50
pragmaticenigmacheeseandspam: Appears counter intuitive if you're goal is to isolate facebook, to leave it running in the background.17:50
cheeseandspamI'll have to try another browser..17:50
cheeseandspampragmaticenigma, in as far as cookies and other local storage. And I'm not leaving it open intentionally. I don't want to use it that much, but there is one group I'd like to interact with17:51
cheeseandspamI'm just a bit shocked than a browser, with some unintentionally bad javascript can bring an Ubuntu machine (based on Debian, which in my limited experience is a rock solid OS) to its knees...17:53
daxcheeseandspam: mozilla wrote a firefox addon to isolate facebook. might be worth a look: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/facebook-container/17:53
dax(i know this is tangential to your actual question)17:53
cheeseandspamdax, it is, but some good info, thank you17:53
cheeseandspamand might be a solution, as I can then uninstall Chromium17:54
cheeseandspampragmaticenigma, dax - thank you for your input17:54
=== SimonNL_Afk is now known as SimonNL
cheeseandspampragmaticenigma, "failsafes" is the wrong expression. I guess I'm wondering about process prioritisation, and assumed that Chromium wouldn't be running as some kind of realtime process that can just "take over", leaving nothing left for the OS to actually perform its job (and leaving me to have to hard shutdown). I'll have to have a dig around how this all works as I'm still fairly new to this on the desktop.18:00
lordcirth_cheeseandspam, if programs request memory, they get it, even if the OS needs to swap out your desktop. You could possibly use cgroups to have the browser killed when it exceeds a memory cap.18:01
lordcirth_I do that for go-ipfs, as it still has high memory usage sometimes. If it uses more than 5GB, systemd kills and restarts it.18:01
rebabIs it possible to update an unupdated program? I use Ubuntu 18.04 and Gaupol is a subtitle editor. In apt-get there is gaupol 1.3.1 but the last version is 1.5. Here is the list: https://repology.org/project/gaupol/versions How do I update the Gaupol to 1.5?18:02
pragmaticenigma!latest | rebab18:02
ubotturebab: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.18:02
pragmaticenigmarebab: if the application is too far out-of-date you can try submitting a bug ticket to launchpad to see if it can get some attention. Feature enhancements rarely are enough to warrant an upgrade to the existing package.18:03
lordcirth_rebab, you could install their provided flatpak.18:04
OerHeksrebab, uninstall gaupol, and install the deb from their site? that makes you responsible for the next update & testing18:04
roboirchow do we give feedback on future versions (features) of ubuntu online?18:06
cheeseandspamlordcirth_, I see. Got you. I'll read about this and cgroups - sounds useful. Thanks!18:06

leftyfbB1ack0p: You do not have a support issue. Feel free to ask in #ubuntu-offtopic or ##linux21:04
daxB1ack0p: this is probably better suited to #fsf or similar, but: Ubuntu uses the Linux kernel and much of the GNU userland, so it is reasonably called GNU/Linux. It does not meet FSF's standards for a free distribution, so they do not advertise it.21:04

RaydeNleftyfb : ubuntu-18.04.2-live-server-amd6421:14

calcul0n_ga_sk8er, probably just some random bug, wait for updates22:36
ga_sk8erso i  sold go  do updates? ....sudo  yum update?22:38
guivercga_sk8er, `sudo apt update; sudo apt full-upgrade` (update updates your software.lists, upgrade does the upgrading of software)22:38
guivercga_sk8er, you can stop the message, but it'll stop all, and best that devs get told of the bug so they will work on it (the more reports of a bug, the higher priority it gets so reporting bugs helps get give devs more info but also helps fix it faster)22:41
ga_sk8erim  running te full upgrade rigt now. i  installed a fresh copy last nigt so i never did the upgrade22:42
Thetetomreyn: xwayland is already installed by default, changing WaylandEnable=true in /etc/gdm3/custom.conf doesn't do anything to enable it23:04
Theteand the google doesn't seem to show any information as to how to enable it anywhere at least where I can find23:05
Theteand there is no cogweel on the login screen to switch to it from there either23:05
tomreynThete: you're right, xwayland is installed by default, some other folks told me that since, i wasn't aware. to actually use it, you need to select a wayland desktop session when you login.23:06
tomreynhmm, are you sure you're running ubuntu there?23:06
ga_sk8eri forget wo  told me earlier but te update & upgrade worked23:07
Thetedisco dingo, clean install23:07
EickmeyerThete: To dovetail on what tomreyn says, when you select your user and are about to enter your password, click on the cog and select "Ubuntu on Wayland." that should do the trick.23:07
TheteEickmeyer: there is no cogwheel23:07
TheteI have a white cancel button, and a green sign in button, nothing else23:08

Thetewhen I do apt install ubuntu-desktop23:10

metbsdi use usb write tool to write iso to usb. it boots with some error and cannot proceed to install23:11

tomreynThete: i suggest you reinstall, if that's still an option.23:12
triplenulltomreyn: I also do not have the cogwheel to change sessions on my desktop, but my laptop (with only intel integrated graphics) I can switch to Wayland. Could this be related to nvidia graphics drivers?23:12
tomreynmetbsd: which "some error"?23:12
metbsdtomreyn: i couldn't catch it it was too fast blinking. and went into gui23:13
Eickmeyertriplenull: We can investigate with Thete. Thete, do you have NVidia graphics?23:13
TheteI can try that as well23:13
tomreyntriplenull: hmm yes, could be, since nvidia and wayland don't play well together AFAIK.23:13
Theteno, just intel integrated atm23:13
metbsdwhat  is the right tool to write iso to a usb to make it bootable and installable23:14
tomreynThete: "atm" as in nothing else is installed in terms of hardware23:14
EickmeyerThete: Then I'm inclined to agree with tomreyn on this. Your installation has some issues. A clean, even minimal Ubuntu installation has that cogwheel.23:14
=== ca_cabotage is now known as Guest97477
tomreynmetbsd: is that hardware slow or short of resources, is this why you're asking for a "minimal install"? what should be minimal about it?23:15

ubottumaxzor: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit.
