gimmelI've just run dosfsck over a USB pendrive and it's created a hefty amount of .REC files. These files are intact to the point that if I change the extension to what it was originally (eg, .jpg) it opens. In gnome, the icon next to each .rec file indicates gnome knows what type of file it is. It puts a 'jpg' icon next to the images. How does it know this? and how can use that info to bulk rename the02:18
doug16kgimmel, the `file` program tries to detect the type of a file's content. run `file your-filename-here`02:22
kstA jpg file can be recognized by examining its first few bytes. Similarly for other file types, including image formats, etc. The `file` command extracts this information and displays the type of file (not 100% reliably).  dosfsck and/or Gnome are either invoking `file` or doing something equivalent.02:23
doug16kyou can throw a whole directory at `file` like this: file *02:24
gimmelThanks guys - I did try file on a few random files and it didn't really help. Looks like I randomly selected some unhelpful files to try on. You're right, file is identifying the jpgs and pngs.02:25
gimmeldoug16k: Yes, I just tested that also. So I'm going to have to dust off some shell to get the output recognised and then to automagically rename accordingly.02:26
gimmelunless anyonw knows of a pre-existing such wheel before I attempt to invent it?02:26
doug16kgimmel, if you want to write a C program for that, you can use libmagic1-dev02:35

mase-techI want to delete ubuntu-mate06:59
mase-techand on that place i want to install ubuntu06:59
mase-techis that easy possible ?06:59
DarwinElfyou probably don't need to delete it then06:59
DarwinElfthere's probably a process you remove MATE and install whatever the main version has07:00
guivercmase-tech, I would just install Ubuntu over your Ubuntu-MATE system, I'd also use 'something-else' & not format so all user files aren't wiped - but it's your choice07:00
saulanybody use cinnamon? i'm trying to disable "snapping" - it happens when you move a window and your cursor hits the top of the screen07:00
mase-tech I would just install Ubuntu over your Ubuntu-MATE system07:03
guivercmase-tech, `sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop` will add the default desktop to your system; it'll mean you have two desktops and select at login (close to what DarwinElf suggested except the remove step), but multiple desktops isn't ideal for newbies (it has costs, more updates, more menu options, ie. caja (mate) & nautilus (gnome/unity) do the same thing for most program categories)07:03
mase-techhow ?07:03
mase-techi do not want that07:04
mase-techso i format the partion07:04
mase-techwiping files isnt a problem with github and cloud services07:04
guivercmase-tech, my prior was built on DarwinElf's point.. I'd suggest writing the release of Ubuntu you want to thumb-drive & install that; using 'something-else' selecting your existing partitions and 'no format' .. it notes your additional apps; wipes system dirs, installs, adds back added apps & asks you to reboot without touching user files - would be my choice07:04
mase-techthe thing is07:05
guivercmase-tech, I'm suggesting what I'd do - you do what best suits your needs.  if you select 'format' you'll start completely new07:05
mase-techgrub 2 is active07:05
guivercmase-tech, please try & use fewer enter's07:05
mase-techI only want to remove the mate version an install on that playe ubuntu07:06
guivercan install will replace the existing GRUB with the new install's grub.07:06
mase-techand does this process also take care of the win partion07:07
guivercmase-tech,  you should ALWAYS BACKUP; and if you select the correct option it won't touch your windows, but if you select 'use entire disk' your windows will be gone - ie. choose the correct options & why backups are needed (even if you don't expect to use them)07:08

AbraCadaveri dont want to use xdotool. i need a solution that happens outside X...maybe if theres a way to create a bridge device to the actual keyboard and mouse bus or something08:07
HabbieAbraCadaver, why don't you want to use xdotool?08:08
AbraCadaverim going to incorporate it into a much larger project. and someone might be using wayland as opposed to X. so i need it to work outside the window/display program08:10
AbraCadaveri think wayland and X are 'watching' or reading input from some evdev or uinput module. im not sure what going on under the hood all the way08:11

eraserpencilwhat is a good way to provide a series of yes/no(s), including providing a user password as part of an installation step of a bash script.08:27
eraserpencilthe sequence would be "q" to exit the 'less' of the license. "y", to accept the license, passwd to download dependencies and a couple more "y"08:28
Habbiea good way for that is to use the tools already available in ubuntu, as used by various packages, like mysql/mariadb08:29
eraserpencilcould you elaborate?  I've tried echo -e "y\n${PASSWD}\ny\ny" | LESS='+q' ./install.runfile08:32
geirhaI'd check the documentation. It might be able to take those answers via arguments, environment variables or config files08:34
eraserpenciland printf, and also something like echo "y" | echo "y" | ./install.runfile, but the last one i think i ran into a subshell behavior or something cause it stopped and got pushed to the background08:34

gunixi downloaded the src but i can't find the config file to edit it10:48
mgedmingunix: /boot contains config files for stock ubuntu kernels; copy one and modify to your liking?10:49
mgedminbut that wiki page implies that the ubuntu kernel source has config files for all the flavours already?10:50
gunixmgedmin: yea, i found that one and also the flags which might cause trouble for my hardware. now i want to remove them from the kernel10:50
mgedminhave you reported it to the appropriate bug tracker?  because compiling your own kernel every time ubuntu does a security update will get old really fast10:51
gunixmgedmin: i opened a kernel bug to intel a few months ago and nobody touched it10:52
lotuspsychjegunix: wich bug is that?10:52

gunixso now i want to recompile kernel without offload for ipsec and test... i have a gentoo with 4.19 that works great, but it doesn't have offload10:54
gunixso... it's the offload in the kernel or i will shoot myself cause i've been testing this for weeks now10:54
lotuspsychjegunix: here is the ubuntu support channel, do you have an ubuntu kernel bug about it?10:54
gunixlotuspsychje: not yet. i need to recompile the kernel first to test if the offload really is the issue10:55

gunixmgedmin: good question12:38
gunixmgedmin: i managed to get the arch done at least: https://bpaste.net/show/e40B12:39
vetrI doubt, it doesnt seem that it is module based. And something related to IPSEC would most likely be wrapped up in the compiled kernel to sit in protected mode after ram boot12:39

JimBunturishav, "correct" compared to installing the debs or does that include the debs?13:12
mgedminflog: you might have to use sudo showkey13:14
flogmgedmin: now you made me feel stupid :p13:16
mgedminwhy?  the error message doesn't say anything about lacking permissions13:17
mgedminI've only remembered that showkey needs root because I've used it in the past13:17
flogShould have been the next thing to try.13:18
flogGot a keycode from that though.13:18
vetrwonder if you needed to star xev with sudo as well13:18
mgedminif xev doesn't see the key, it's possible that something (gnome-shell? gnome-settings-daemon) has a grab on that key13:18
flogxev works fine without sudo.13:19
mgedminor it's possible the X protocol ran out of keycodes (it only has 256 of them) and cannot represent that key13:19
flogmgedmin: sounds possible. Since showkey returned 374 on the key in question.13:19

mgedminactually, if there's a key grab, xdev should see some events, but I don't reall which ones (focuslost? keymapnotify?)13:21
flogmgedmin: seems like i3 handles keycodes aswell as keysymbols so i should be good.13:23
mgedminyou can also evemu-record to see the key event at a slightly higher level13:24
mgedminthe same event would be seen by Xorg's evdev input driver and converted into a keycode (which then would get converted to a keysym by XKB)13:25

wonkoIt's Ubuntu Studio 19.04 and they install it16:23
pragmaticenigmawonko: Perhaps ask in #ubuntu-studio ... they're going to be more familiar with their environment setup. Currently that is not a kernel that is included with the standard Ubuntu desktops (to my knowledge)16:24
lotuspsychjestudio got those lowlatency kernels indeed16:25
wonkopragmaticenigma: They don't know, that's why I'm here. It's technically not their kernel. :)16:25
lotuspsychjebut is your system up to date also wonko ?16:25
lotuspsychjewonko: how about your bios up to date?16:26
pragmaticenigmawonko: Besides a mouse and keyboard, do you have any other USB devices attached to your system?16:26
sarnoldiffraff: it'd be worth looking for bios updates from your laptop vendor16:26
iffraffsarnold: unfortunately, I have a window machine repaved with ubuntu 18.04. and hp doesn't make a linux update.  In fact they say "linux should have everything you need"16:28
iffraffI have a vm with windows on it but I'm pretty sure I couldn't effect bios from with in a VM could I?16:28
wonkopragmaticenigma: Yes, MIDI keyboard, MIDI control surface, webcam and Komplete Audio 6.16:29
pragmaticenigmaiffraff: It wouldn't be recommended16:29
wonkooh look, Asus just released a new bios for this machine. More than 2 years after the previous one!16:29
iffraffpragmaticenigma: well, in general I'm sure, for this edge case I don't see it posing any danger, other than I think vm's are pretty much locked down to their sandbox16:30
lotuspsychjewonko: try fwupdate first, its a nice rising project with more & more brands added16:30
wonkolotuspsychje: better than making some dos boot drive or something, that's for sure. :)16:30
pragmaticenigmawonko: The other part is to disconnect all USB devices and attach one-by-one to see if the messages start appearing. The message you're seeing is related to the drivers for the USB controllers. There have been documented instances where devices are sending random data to the USB BUS when the kernel is not expecting it.16:32
pragmaticenigmaiffraff: You are correct, that performing a BIOS update is next to impossible through a VM. Especially one such as Virtual Box or VMWare. Personally I don't wipe the Windows partition from my machine until the unit is completely out of service from the manufacturer. That way when issues like this happen, I can still do Firmware/BIOS updates16:34
iffraffhmmm, good to know.  I'll do that with next laptop. Unfortunately it's too late for this one16:35
pragmaticenigmaiffraff: You could see if your machine is supported by fwupdate, which can help apply BIOS updates16:35
iffraffok, never heard of them/it but I'll look it up16:37
wonkopragmaticenigma: ok, post bios update I will do that, thanks!16:39
wonkolotuspsychje: Firmware updates are supported on this machine.16:40
iffraffpragmaticenigma: ok, I see, it says that gnome has fwupdate and will run it when checking for software upates.  perhaps this is what hp means by linux should have what you need16:41
wonkolotuspsychje: I didn't have high expectations.16:42

ericusNow trying to install Ubuntu with encryption aloneside17:05
ericusGiven the option to install alongside or "Something else"17:06
iffraffSo I believe I have an issue because I have three gpus, onboard, descrete and external.  Intermitantly my login goes into a loop, it's about 50% I'm not sure how to go about trouble shooting it17:06
sarnoldwhat does it mean for a "login to go into a loop"?17:07
iffraffsarnold: well, you enter password, it thinks about it then refreshes the login page, so no error.  it's the correct password it just loops17:08
sarnoldiffraff: can you login at a text console?17:10
iffraffconsistently, but the gui is intermitant17:11
sarnoldgood good..17:11
sarnoldis there anything in journalctl output at the time of trying? eg login, run journalctl -f, then switch to gui and try logging in, then bacvk to text to see what it reports17:11
iffraffhmmm, ok great idea.  unfortunately I'm knee deep in work and don't want to log out of all that.  perhaps I can look at the journalctr at the time I logged in this moring.17:15
=== im0nde_ is now known as im0nde1
sarnoldyeah that should work too, it's just a bit harder to find what happened at the same time by coincidence vs what happened due to the login attempt17:16
iffraffunderstood. crap, I have 9 files is -b 9 the oldest or the youngest17:18
iffraffoh, i see. nm17:18
iffraffI'm sorry how do you get the current system tiem in console?17:22
sarnolddate or date -u17:22
sarnolddepending if you want a local timezone or utc17:22
iffraffI guess I want whatever the computer's logging at17:22
sarnoldthat gets complicated; different programs can run with different timezones. I'm not sure which logging methods use timezoned-times vs utc times. journalctl -o short-full, -o short-precise, -o short-iso, etc present different timestamp outputs that hopefully know how to report when exactly they were logged correctly17:25

ericusDo I choose physical volume for encryption when installing Ubuntu encrypted alongside win10?17:50
ericusWhat about /swap and /boot17:51
sarnoldericus: you can use a swap file within the filesystem and skip the dedicated swap partition.. i'm less sure about boot. when I followed a zfs-on-root-with-luks guide, /boot wasn't on luks, I don't think..17:53
ericusI should be fine just creating root?17:54
ericusWhat about grub? I just tried with other partitions, booted straight into win17:55

iffraffsarnold: Hey I thihk I got something here18:37
iffraffI think it starts right at the top.  so i did the journal -f then went to login.  I did the login 3x then bac to the cli to stop it.  so I think the start is where the good stuff is18:38
sarnoldiffraff: nice...18:39
iffraffalso, it's worth mentioning, that my system doesn't really shut down gracefully18:39

jilsorry, let me check gcc.gnu.org first.19:00
akemhpjil, You should have gcc > 7.0 with Ubuntu 18.04.19:01
sarnoldericus: it's been a while since I've seen the installer but I thought it had a handy button for "encrypt the filesystem" and also let you pick the free space to use to partition...19:01
akemhp7.4.0 here.19:01
ericussarnold yes for a fresh install that works19:01
ericusBut there already is an OS on this disk19:02
sarnoldjil: sudo apt install gcc-719:02
sarnoldericus: so you've got no free space? I *think* our installer can shrink windows filesystems but that worries me. make sure you've got backups before you try.19:02
ericusI got free space, 200 GB19:03
sarnoldah good. then you should be able to create a partition in that free space, select the "encrypt the drive" button, and install19:04
ericusBut the installer recognizes another OS and The only option I got is to manually partition it19:04
ericusNo you got me wrong19:04

nateAnyone here by chance have luck with installing on recent-ish HP laptop models (like things made in the past few years?).  Got an envy that's being an absolute pain apparently cause of the IntelHD chipset, installs okay but just boots to a cursor screen and the old `nomodeset screen` method doesn't seem to work anymore20:18
OerHeksblizzow, nope. as the repo is outside the launchpad environment, so does the key. this page https://wiki.jenkins.io/display/JENKINS/Installing+Jenkins+on+Ubuntu  is your help20:18
nateat least I'm -pretty sure- it's an IntelHD issue, this is seemingly identical to previous issues I've had with IntelHD laptops20:18

tomreynnate: post the output of   journalctl -b | nc termbin.com 9999     to share a system log with us and have someone review it.20:23
natetomreyn: That's kind of the problem, I can't even get into a console view to do so20:24
tomreynnate: neither with recovery?20:24
nateDitto, it just boots into a blank screen with a flashing cursor at the corner, which as far as I've run into in the past usually meant some sort of graphic chipset/driver issue, but it used to be that `nomodeset splash` would launch a bare limited terminal view, it unfortunately isn't in this case20:25
nateIt's likely worth noting that I have to literally force the USB installer to run in a non-UEFI boot, it wigs out bad in UEFI mode (ie; as soon as you hit install of any sort it just pops up a black box in the middle of the screen).  I fear the laptop might have a bit of a buggered BIOS/UEFI20:26
tomreynis another OS installed and working?20:26
nateYeah it had windows on it previously rolling fine, I had wiped that but since installed Win10 to do a BIOS firmware update hoping that might resolve it all, but to no avail, still does the same20:27
tomreynso the firmware is up to date now?20:28
anxionnate: i had the same problem with my navi10 card until i "installed" the firmware blob. ubuntu netinstall worked - after that i fixed the efi boot20:28
nateYeah, BIOS is as up to date as HP has.  I figured I'd just ask in here and wait for replies while I try to see if it's booting in enough that I might be able to SSH in20:28
tomreynand it boots windows fine but not linux?20:28
tomreynhave you configured windows to actually shutdown fully, not just pretend to?20:29
nateBoth Win8 (original Windows on it) and Win 10 work fine, it's just *nix, especially any ubuntu or ubuntu fork I've used20:29

nateI formatted and all lol20:29
nateI wasn't trying to dual boot it20:29
tomreyncan you boot it in uefi mode from an ubuntu installer?20:30
nateNup, the USB installer/image -boots- into the like a UEFI installer screen, but as soon as you hit install it just pops up a black box in the middle of the screen and does nothing.  And it shouldn't be secure boot since that's off20:31

CrazySami can not reboot and boot up normally but my graphics are all messed up21:44
CrazySamvga resolution21:44
CrazySami followed these instructions, and according to the author this is more of nvidia problem, and as a last resort he suggests installing proprietary nvidia drivers as the open source nvidia drivers have shown to be very bad and cause this type of problem21:46

tomreynnate: good that uefi now boots, though :)22:03
sarnoldericus: that guide looked alright, where'd it go wrong?22:03
ericusNo UFI it says..22:03
ericusSo I deleted the existing one and made a new, no luck22:04
sarnoldso you're booting legacy?22:04
ericusSorry EFI, not UFI22:04
CrazySamtomreyn, no problem. i understand you just want to help, and i appreciate that!  i just don't see that happening because it's an old system, where bios really means bios, and there is not much to upgrade to.22:05
tomreynnate: if it depends on acpi=off then maybe you'll have more luck with http://iam.tj/prototype/enhancements/Windows-acpi_osi.html22:06
tomreynCrazySam: it can still solve issues in earlier bios versions which linux then needs to work around (or maybe cannot work around, resulting in issues like you're seeing). but indeed it was a shot in the dark. until we can see a system journal log from your system it's just guessing. try some kernel / boot parameters if you haven't.22:09
tomreyn!kernelparm | CrazySam22:09
ubottuCrazySam: To add a one-time or permanent kernel boot parameter see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBootParameters22:09
tomreynremove "quiet" and "splash", add "nosplash" and these:22:09
ubottuTo get a more verbose log of the boot process, add the following !kernelparm: debug systemd.log_level=info22:10
tomreynCrazySam: this shuld at least print something on screen, hinting on where it's failing.22:10
tomreynericus: so windows is already booting in uefi mode and now you're trying to install ubuntu so it will also boot from uefi, and share the same storage with the windows installation?22:14
tomreyn(...and use full disk encryption)22:14
tomreynericus: whch ubuntu version are you installing (ISO file name)?22:14
CrazySamtomreyn, it has something to do with graphics drivers i think. the author of which suggested adding "nomodeset" param and that eliminated the boot problem, but left me with very low resolution22:15
tomreynericus: desktop, server? some !flavor?22:15
ericusFull disk as in "full disk" for the Ubuntu part of it.22:15
OerHeksCrazySam, and what older amd gpu do you have?22:15
ericusDesktop, 18.04 LTS22:15
tomreynericus: 18.04.0 then?22:15
tomreynokay, i'd expect this to work fine if you select to install side by side with windows and enable the full disk encryption option. it could be, though, that the full disk encryption option does not show when you choose to install side by side with windows.22:17
tomreynthat's something i just don't know22:18
ericusThe only option given is to erase the entire disk and install Ubuntu or "Something else"22:18
tomreyn"something else" definitely sounds better then22:18
tomreynand then there are no more otions?22:18
ericusMeaning manually partitioning22:18
ericusNo other options, no22:19
tomreynoh, this seems to suggest you booted in legacy bios mode22:19
CrazySamOerHeks, radeon hd 685022:19
natetomreyn: Unfortunately to access /sys/firmware/acpi you can't do acpi=off I believe, and I have to do acpi=off to even get booted in UEFI22:19
ericusI have the option to go for legacy+UEFI or just UEFI22:19
ericusTried both. Gonna make a fresh install of Windows again and try, what option should I choose?22:20
CrazySamubuntu 19.04 reinstalled, this time third party box was off and update during install was off, and i refused to do the update after first sign in22:21
CrazySamafter a reboot i see the same problem as before22:21
CrazySam"a start job is running for "Hold" until boot process finishes up" 6 mins and counting22:22
tomreynericus: just uefi should be fine (assuming windows is installed in uefi mode). from the ubuntu installer usb you can start a live system, open a terminal (ctrl-alt-t) and see what it returns: ls /sys/firmware/efi22:22
tomreynericus: if this directory exists (and its contents are listed, no error message is returned) then your usb booted in uefi mode.22:22
ericusDo I want it to boot in UEFI?22:23
tomreynnate: i don't think you need to access /sys/firmware/acpi until after you installed, though.22:23
CrazySamit wasn't meant to be i guess22:23
tomreynericus: you do, if windows is installed in uefi mode.22:23
CrazySamok, i'm in again22:24
Betalcan't grub from mbr hdd boot windows in gpt hdd?22:24
CrazySamsolution: smashing function and control keys at random22:24
ericusI'm gonna try again tomreyn22:25
ericusJust need to flash a usb22:25
Betalif ericus gonna share same /efi partition over windows and linux, probably is better to have /boot on separate partition, no?22:26
natetomreyn: Ah, hm, I'll double check22:26
Betalso there is no way to windows screw up the linux install at all22:26
ericusI will install Linux after Windows22:27
=== DataHoarder_ is now known as DataHoarder
CrazySami'm done bashing keys for today, i'm off to bed. bye irc! bye internet!22:32
tomreynBetal: if you don't add a separate /boot partition and file system then the /boot directory goes on the same file system as the root directory. so i don't think it makes a difference, does it?22:43
Betaltomreyn: yes. All depends how you want to setup things, as I like to use lvm for linux, usually I will have /efi and ensure /boot out of the lvm22:45
ericusAlright. Fresh install of Windows 10 Pro, flashing a USB with Ubuntu now22:49
tomreynBetal: yes, and ericus is looking to have storage encryption on ubuntu, so (at least while using the installer) they'll need to have a separate boot, too.22:49
ericusRebooting into Ubuntu installer now, 200GB free disk space alongside Windows22:50
ericusGreeted by that, choosing Something else22:53
ericusThen what?22:54
ericusThe guide I followed earlier didnt work.22:55
tomreynericus: if you install alongside windows, then you can't encrypt, you say?22:55
ChiLLabiSSo why do i need to add a different PPA to install from WineHQ on Bionic?22:55
tomreynChiLLabiS: because winehq is not part of bionic.22:56
ChiLLabiSyeah but there is a package needed from wineHQ's ppa that isn't there. I need to add a ppa that has nothing to do with either Ubuntu or Wine? :S22:57
ericusI cant even get it to boot. Windows will boot automatically, I want grub22:57
ChiLLabiSSome audio package22:57
OerHeksChiLLabiS, ask the maintainer of that ppa? that would be in #winehq22:57
ChiLLabiSWill do, OerHeks tomreyn !22:58
tomreynericus: so which encryption are you planning to have? this article discusses fscrypt, a utility managing ext4 file system encryption (which is not integrated into the installer) as well as dmcrypt-luks (which i would recommend for your use case) as well as the now legacy ecryptfs.22:59
OerHeksChiLLabiS,  find some reporst about missing libfaudio0:i38622:59
ericusLets say I skip encryption tomreyn. Would I just go for a root partition then?23:00
OerHekshttps://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu gives libfaudio0 packages can be downloaded from the OBS. See https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32192 for details23:00
OerHeks.. nothing we can do about it :-(23:00
TJ-ericus: I wrote an article on doing FDE from the installer which might help understand the options https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Full_Disk_Encryption_Howto_201923:01
sarnoldTJ-: dude, a million internet points for putting the year in the title23:01
sarnoldTJ-: way too many guides written for linux old.ancient still clutter up the internet and search rankings and so on..23:01
OerHeksyeah, bing gives better result now.23:02
ericusThanks TJ-!23:02
sarnold"current (hopelessly out-of-date and inadequate) FullDiskEncryptionHowto page" yes this problem exactly :D23:02
tomreynericus: i'll be happy to help you examine the manual partitioning path if we have established that you cannot just choose "install alongside windows" and still have full disk encryption.23:05
TJ-I should have added to the URL "Fully_Illustrated" :D23:05
sarnoldTJ-: beautiful guide, thanks23:05
sarnoldyes :D23:05
GalactorHow would I make a custom shell command? for example, lets say I am always having to type "sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager" because of my faulty hardware, but I would rather just type "fixnet" instead to input the command. how would I do that?23:06
uRockthat's an alias23:06
ericusI cant just choose that tomreyn :(23:06
ericusSo yeah, please help me :)23:07
tomreynericus: it's pre-selected on your screenshot at https://irc.ericus.se/uploads/2c0922751df1d3cd/15694519770222185647053061869918.jpg - are you saying the button to proceed is disabled while this option is selected?23:08
sarnoldGalactor: as uRock says that could be a shell alias, but I prefer to make little tiny shell scripts for these things, since you can more easily use them from other tools besides interactive shells23:08
jeremy31Galactor: wifi?23:08
tomreynTJ-: do you happen to know that the "install alongside windows" option will *not* work for dmcrypt-luks in EUFI mode?23:09
Galactorjeremy31: yeah. I have this old thinkpad x130e and the card just derps out23:09
jeremy31Galactor: see https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2354328&p=13614520&#post1361452023:10
tomreynTJ-: sorry, ignore me23:10
jeremy31Galactor: the wifi power save might be causing the issue23:10
Galactorjeremy31: thanks! I'll give it a read :)23:10
tomreynericus: sorry, i didn't read the screen shot properly, only realize now that this is the very screen where you'd choose to enable encryption.23:10
ericustomreyn but no option for encryption23:11
FurretUberI'm having a problem: backlight keyboard functions doesn't work. Cause: two interfaces for backlight at same time, with the one selected by the system being the one that does not work (intel_backlight). Workaround found for now, setting Xorg configuration to use the correct backlight method (cmpc_bl), but I want a more reliable solution23:11
tomreynericus: so then for encryption you'd best follow TJ's guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Full_Disk_Encryption_Howto_201923:11
ericusYes, will do23:12
ericusGonna get some sleep first, getting late here23:12
ericusThanks to you both!23:12
tomreynericus: to answer your earlier question: if you chose not to have encryption, you would just have /root, yes.23:13
tomreynericus: see you!23:13
aroonihey team;  anyone running 18.04 and have google chrome working?  each time i try to install it it seems to crash gnome-shell23:14
TJ-Sounds like I'll have to test out the "alongside windows" option by faking an NTFS bootable partition in a VM23:14
rud0lfarooni: did you have any extensions aka plugins for chrome installed before?23:15
aroonirud0lf: i did ;  but i purged my .config/google-chrome directory  and tired to reinstall it23:16
ericustomreyn I ran the alongside installer just to try, guess what OS boots up?...23:17
aroonioh interesting; if i disable all gnome extensions; it works23:19
tomreynericus: since you're asking, i'm guessing on windows. you may need to point the uefi configuration / setup menu to the ubuntu boot loader (i.e. to grub)23:21
sarnoldseveral times now my external monitor flickers black for five or ten seconds; these messages are in journalctl -f when it happens: http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/2yH9HbBpY2/23:21
sarnoldis this familiar to anybody? :D23:21
tomreynlooks like a suspend/resume error?23:22
tomreyn"PCI post-resume error -110!"23:22
OerHeksugh, do a memtest86 run ?23:22
sarnoldit happened once while running an apt update, once while loading a huge complicated pdf into firefox; hopefully nothing was trying to suspend at those moments :)23:23
sarnoldmemtest is good idea23:24
tomreynno, no, but your system was probably having trouble returning from suspend properly, and only then it got fatal.23:24
sarnoldah :) alas no, fresh boot this morning, no suspends before hand23:25
tomreynoh then it just entered a power saving mode due to lack of use for a while, maybe?23:25
sarnoldI've had this machine a few months but only really started using it ~two weeks ago.. it worked great on the internal monitor, but gave a few problems today -- either damaged in transit, or this external monitor isn't working great23:26
TJ-sarnold: #define ETIMEDOUT       110     /* Connection timed out */23:27
TJ-sarnold: have you applied the optimal acpi_osi= option?  https://iam.tj/prototype/enhancements/Windows-acpi_osi.html23:28
sarnoldTJ-: heh, I never considered that 110 might be THE 110 :23:28
tomreynso what looks like an error code in the message really is a timeout in seconds. great job writing good error messages. :-/23:28
TJ-tomreyn: error codes are always prefixed with the negative symbol and therefore -110 in code is written as "return -ETIMEDOUT; "23:29
tomreynah right i was wrong, it's not a timeout in sec23:30
sarnoldTJ-: very nice writeup. I'd long since forgotten about this command line option :)23:31
TJ-sarnold: I've seen that happen when the outputs aren't correctly reconfigured due it ACPI differences when not using the optimal OSI23:31
sarnoldTJ-: "acp_osi" appears to be a typo in one of the text output boxes23:32
TJ-where abouts ?23:32
sarnoldTJ-: very near the end, just above the Testing heading23:32
TJ-OK I see it, thanks!23:33
sarnoldTJ-: hmm, this output looks like it will confuse the | sort | tail -1 part of the script: http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Mp5DBDdJy6/23:35
sarnoldTJ-: OH! you've got a 'Windows ' in the grep... not in the bit under Testing. nm. :)23:35
TJ-sarnold: you're a fab tester!23:35
sarnoldTJ-: I do try to read what I'm about to execute :) hehe23:36
TJ-it's only escaped notice for 2 years :)23:36
sarnoldwell, maybe most other people's dsdt don't have this funny extra entry? dunno :)23:37
becoolhow do i set dist_upgrade to true so that servers auto upgrade all packages?23:38
TJ-true, or they never tried the manual option23:38
sarnoldTJ-: or were content to apply understanding to the output :) you'd already accounted for it in the script23:39
aroonianyone using google chrome on 18.04?  i have found the only way I can get it working is by disabling all gnome-shell extensions first23:40
tomreynbecool: set dist_upgrade to true where?23:41
sarnoldTJ-: hey.. there's also a Windows10. is that newer or older than Windows 2015? :) apparently I don't know windows real well23:41
TJ-sarnold: I haven't used Windows since 2005 so not sure!23:43
TJ-sarnold: but I've not seen that listed before so it might be something 'new' we need to account for... it sounds ... "recent"23:43
TJ-and the whole idea is to select the most recent on the basis the DSDT is coded for that23:43
sarnold[drm] Reducing the compressed framebuffer size. This may lead to less power savings than a non-reduced-size. Try to increase stolen memory size if available in BIOS.23:46
sarnoldvery curious23:46
TJ-presumably it means it has to use a higher compression ratio requiring more CPU23:47
tomreynthis, or due to a smaller buffer it will have to calculate frames more often?23:53
sarnoldI think it's to reduce memory bandwidth use (and thus power) https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/intel_graphics#Framebuffer_compression_(enable_fbc)23:56
tomreynarch wiki is cheating.23:59
