magic_ninjawill kubuntu be forcing everyone to use snaps?00:43
OerHeksmagic_ninja, no. but 3rd party developers might.00:58
magic_ninjaI saw it was included in apt. Is it just a conscious choice? As in we select what we prefer to install?00:59
OerHeksno, not in apt. snaps are available in softwarecenter / muon01:01
magic_ninjawhat is this I keep hearing about ubuntu 19.10 using apt as a frontend for snap01:27
magic_ninjaI'm referencing this video in particular: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-5EJ4PrV9I01:28
magic_ninjaHere is another one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMPTp4Hjbhg01:34
OerHeksnot watching that.01:37
OerHekssnap install <package>   vs apt install <package> ...01:38
OerHeksyou can easily find that, so i guess you waste your time on that youtube01:38
OerHeksdigital waste is bad01:38

magic_ninjaOerHeks, I don't believe I did. The point is about apt installing snaps as opposed to installing repository packages.04:19
magic_ninjato wit: apt install <package> installing a snap and not a .deb package.04:20
OerHeksno, it gives a suggestion https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/wHHptjwxQh/04:36
valorieI would assume that someone was willing to make a snap but that nobody in Debian or Ubuntu was willing to package spotify05:02
OerHeksmy best bet: independant updates, snap and apt are seperate05:04

IrcsomeBot<Shreddies> Does anybody know how to connect a mobile modem  (Nokia C7 phone) to use the internet on it to connect the PC to the internet? Have tried multiple times & it hadn't worked.I know it's possible as I have Kubuntu on my old laptop before it broke & was able to connect my phone & use the exact same phone as a modem.Thanks!14:08

user|65654Hello and good evening, I'm having system freezes on Kubuntu 18.04.3 LTS. Almost always when using Firefox. The system becomes completly unresponsive. Can someone help me to identify the cause?17:10
diogenes_user|65654, how much ram?17:11
user|6565432 GiB17:11
diogenes_user|65654, inxi -f17:12
diogenes_sorry inxi -F17:12
diogenes_user|65654, in ff about:config try layers.acceleration.force true and restart ff.17:19
diogenes_see if you get any improvements.17:23
user|65654Thank you. I'll try the website that crashed the system. But the freezes feel random, so it might take time. (I'm saving /var/log after each freeze)17:26
tomreynuser|65654: this is how you can reboot without loosing data that's still in the write cache, and with closing the file systems properly so the system does not need to run a file system check on reboot:18:00
ubottuIn an emergency, you may be able to shutdown cleanly and reboot by holding down Alt+PrintScreen and typing slowly, in succession, R, E, I, S, U and B. For an explanation, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key18:00
tomreynActually just S, U, B, because R, E, I are ignored on Ubuntu.18:01
user|65654I'll try that. I've noticed that the nic goes down too.18:02
viewer|11diogenes_ I'll try, thank you very much for19:05
viewer|11diogenes_ sorry19:05
viewer|11diogenes_ sudo apt-get install --reinstall ... && sudo dpkg-reconfigure ... worked19:06
viewer|11I can get in plasma back19:06
