CarlFKaleksandrdvorkin: I don't really know, but I can guess:01:42
CarlFKthe thing you are turning on is what looks for on/off signals01:43

OneM_IndustriesSo, question. What's a good html editor for someone who is completely new to web development?02:18
OneM_Industries(For ubuntu, obviously)02:18
xrandrOneM_Industries: you can use vim, gedit, or Visual Studio Code02:20

hypofelyhello people, I'm trying to make Ubuntu as my main OS and GPU passtrough W10. The W10 is on a NVME SSD can I boot it raw, without modification?03:53
Bashing-om!wsl | hypofely04:00
ubottuhypofely: Windows 10 has a feature called Windows Subsystem for Linux, which allows it to run Ubuntu (and other Linux distro) userspace programs without porting/recompliation. For discussion and support, see #ubuntu-on-windows or ##windows. For installation instructions, see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/commandline/wsl/install_guide04:00
hypofelyyeah, I'm well aware of wsl04:01
ayewhypofely: https://heiko-sieger.info/running-windows-10-on-linux-using-kvm-with-vga-passthrough/04:03
ayewwarnings: the process is difficult, depends on hardware support and can easily damage your install04:04
ayewmake a system image with clonezilla or dd before trying04:04
ayewi dont think you can take an existing install. if im being honest, just deal with the 10 seconds it takes to dual boot04:05
ayewits really not worth the effort. if you put windows in grub and have both os installed on fast ssds, its not too much time/effort to dual boot04:07
hypofelyI think virtual box can boot from a drive but that's don't have gpu passthrough04:07
hypofelyyeah well I don't really like restarting04:08
hypofelyclosing down VS projects04:08
hypofelyopening up04:08
ayewyou can't just use a virtual machine and pass gpu through04:08
hypofelyyes u can04:09
ayewor well you can, but not with vmware or vitualbox and maintain near-native performance04:10
ayewif you don't care about performance, sure04:10
hypofelyapperantly the performance loss is neglegable04:11
ayewas i said you can use methods like the one i linked above, but it isn't anywhere near as simple as setting up a virtualbox vm is. and is heavily dependant on hardware support.04:13

yelofapt upgrade today on 19.04 machine used as a media center. Anyone familiar with what package updated, causing sound to cutout after 5-10 minutes05:03
tomreynyelof: i'm not, but is there anything in your system logs about it?05:03
yelofkillall pulseaudio, or pulseaudio -k will resolve temporarily, butonly foranother 5-10 minutes05:03
yelofupdate log: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/nqmS2TK28C/05:04
yelofI'm just not familir enough t guess which package migh be related.05:04
yelofthanks for any suggestions05:05
tomreynjournalctl -b | nc termbin.com 9999    would post the systemd journal since the latest reboot online.05:05
tomreynapt-forktracer (package and command) lists leftover packages which probably should not be installed, or lack an apt source configuration to get upgrades from05:05
tomreyn(run 'apt update' beforehand)05:06
tomreyndid you reboot since this upgrade? ("uptime" would tell how long the system has been running)05:07
yeloftomreyn: of course did update befoe upgrade.  have done several reboots, following ubuntu sound troubleshooting guides.  It isnt throwing any errors at all.  sound just stops making noise during media playback of all types.05:08
tomreynok, the "run 'apt update' beforehand" recommendation referred to apt-forktracer05:09
tomreyni was wondering whether you rebooted since the apt upgrade to understand whether the upgraded kernel image is already active05:10
yelofyes is active, system also prompted for reboot in tray after upgrade.05:12
akem__Faulty driver?05:13
=== akem__ is now known as akem
tomreynyelof: your upgraded package list, more readable (but missing the newly installed 5.0.0-31.33 kernel packages, you were previously on 5.0.0-31): https://termbin.com/u9xe05:15
yelofhad to intall apt-forktracer, it does not print ny output05:16
tomreynokay, so (while i can always miss something), i don't see how any of these package updates would have broken sound, so it's more likely kernel related.05:17
tomreyn!bug | so i suggest you file a bug against linux05:19
ubottuso i suggest you file a bug against linux: If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its official !flavors, please report it using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.05:19
yelofaken__: possible was working before update, tomreyn: so that means go back to prior kernel? thanks for looking it over.  will file bug if I confirm05:19
tomreynyelof: actually, good point, and i don't know why i wasn't thinking of this: do reboot and select the previous kernel image.05:20
tomreynand do it before you file the bug report05:20
tomreyn(ah you just said so)05:20
yelofwill do, thank you!05:21
tomreynso boot to
tomreynyelof: hey, do you have your speakers connected via bluetooth?05:27
yelofno, bluetooth i off as ell.  have wired or hdmi, both present the issue.05:28
akemyelof, It's a laptop?05:30
yelofno it is desktop. Has been over 10 minutes since I booted in the older kernel, still playing sound.05:36
tomreynyelof: if it'll work for 30 minutes, reboot to the latest kernel again, file your bug report, then reboot to the kernel image again. then make sure this one doesn't get automatically removed, by passing the packages returned by   dpkg -l | awk '/5.0.0-29.31~18.04.1/ {print $2}'   to    apt-mark hold06:01
tomreynyelof: to make the good kernel image your default (so you no longer need to select it at boot), you can use https://askubuntu.com/questions/216398/set-older-kernel-as-default-grub-entry06:03
tomreynbut if you do this, make sure you closely follow your bug report and do also occasionally try new kernel images, since running an old and outdated kernel image means running an insecure and buggy kernel image when time passes.06:04
yelofSo far so good, will see if it happens again tonight, and confirm the issue is present upon reboot tomorrow, and file a bug with more sleep.  Thanks for looking it over, I hadn't been thinking easy as kernel, was about to start rolling back packages.06:05
akemhp_You are lucky old kernel wasn't removed when upgrading, mine was last time and i didn't even know about it.06:06
=== akemhp_ is now known as akemhp
yelofit's a low risk system unless you want to steal my music... and yes I'll try the next release. with TBs of storage I usually leave a few old kernels.  speaking of both Audio, Wifi, and Bluetooth I'm used to issues, amazing how far the drivers have improved in a few years.06:08

motaka2I am using lubuntu 16.04. Since 3 hours ago that I restarted my laptop, none of my usb ports work. for example my mouse does not work. but usb thetering works. Does any one know how I can fix this?06:18
doug16kmotaka2, keyboard still works, right?06:19
doug16k(I have no way of knowing if you are in irc on another machine or your phone or something, in case you think that was a silly question)06:20
tomreyn!crosspost | motaka206:20
ubottumotaka2: Please don't ask the same question in multiple Ubuntu channels at the same time. Many helpers are in more than one channel and it's not fair to them or the other people seeking support.06:20
motaka2doug16k: yes it work. I can even share my internet with usb thetering. but mouse and external hard, regardless of to which usb port I connet them, it doesnt work06:22
motaka2doug16k: The message I receive during booting is: usb2: port 4 or port 2 etc: unable to enumerate usb device06:24
OerHeksso rebooting does not work.06:24
tomreynmotaka2: as guiverc pointed ou tin #lubuntu, lubuntu 16.04 is unsupported since April 201906:24
OerHekshow about unplugging devices, and try them one at the time:?06:25

doug16koh, ancient. nevermind06:25
motaka2tomreyn: my laptop is very old and since my ext HDD doesnt work, I can not backup06:25
tomreynmotaka2: then use a cloud backup or buy a new hdd06:26
guivercmotaka2, I run Lubuntu 18.04 on a ibm thinkpad t43 - i consider that ancient.06:26
tomreyn(or usb controller)06:26
doug16kluckily, laptops usually still use the good old i8042 keyboard interface. that thing is nearly infallible06:26
motaka2tomreyn: my HDD works. but it does not work on this machine because the usb stopped working. Now please be quite and listen to others06:26
OerHekssometimes talking nice to hardware works06:28
motaka2doug16k: my keyboard works. the touchpad works. just the mouse and the external hdd do not06:28
doug16ktalking nice to tomreyn usually works too06:29
motaka2doug16k: in ##linux someone repeat taht I should shut down my pc. so I asked in lubuntu. They said it is old. So I asked here. But he keeps saying dont ask several places and change your hardware.06:30
OerHeksjust upgrade to 18.04 lts06:31
tatertotzmotaka2: do your ports function when booted to LiveCD/LiveUSB?06:32
doug16kdid you try booting without the usb drive? they can be a significant load on the usb power rail, particularly if they are old/failing. the mouse might start working06:32
motaka2OerHeks: I have been using it on my VAIO NS110. It was really really slow. I was at final stages of writing my thesis. So I need to work with it just for 2 days.06:32
motaka2tatertotz: unfortunately I dont have a live CD or USB. I am connected to internet with my slow cellphone internet. I can nnot download and burn a new image06:33
doug16kdrooping rail can make all the usb devices send nonsense and mess up the controller's state machine06:34
motaka2doug16k: can you please tell me how to do that?06:34
doug16kshut down. unplug the usb hard drive. power up06:35
motaka2doug16k: ah yeah, I did several times, I unplugged everything. and then just plugged the mouse. but even the mouse alone didnt work06:36
vitimitiI've got a very annoying problem. 19.04 is completely unable to save my sound settings, every time I restart I have to change my microphone and its volume and I have to change my system volume, how can I fix this?06:37
doug16kcan you go somewhere with wifi? you can go through a phone to get to wifi without using your phone's data plan06:37
motaka2doug16k: no, I can not. this is my only internet source in this village06:39
motaka2doug16k: during the boot it says "unable to enumerate USB device"06:41
tomreynvitimiti: does this list much?   find ~ -not -\( -user $USER -and -group $USER -\) -ls06:43
vitimiti@tomreyn, it lists nothing06:43
EriC^^vitimiti: what about "sudo find ~ -not $USER"06:44
vitimitiEriC^^, it says "find: paths must precede expression: `vmatia'"06:44
EriC^^vitimiti: sudo find ~ ! -user $USER06:45
vitimitiEriC^^, that lists nothing06:45
doug16kmotaka2, can you post the output of: lsusb | pastebinit06:48
motaka2doug16k: http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/Mq6DbsPQNb/06:49
tomreynvitimiti: diagnosing this is probably not much fun, i suggest you just wait a few more days until ubuntu 19.10 releases, upgrade, and see whether it is solved then. if it isn't, come back. (that's unless you strictly need a solution now.)06:50
vitimitiThis has been happening since the move to GNOME, tomreyn, it's not new06:51
tomreynvitimiti: what were you running before gnome, and which ubuntu release were you on when you moved to gnome?06:51
doug16kmotaka2, I'd try the mouse in the same port you have the phone plugged into06:52
vitimitiI can't remember the number that Unity was being used last06:52
vitimitiI have been looking for a solution since, I've come now here cause I'm out of options06:52
lotuspsychjevitimiti: unity this exists06:52
vitimitiI beg your pardon?06:52
motaka2doug16k:  I have, it doesnt work. To whichever port I connect the ophone, it works. But to which ever port I connect the mouse or HDD they dont work. I event changed the mouse, yet no results06:53
OerHeksmotaka2, how about trying without phone/internet?06:53
tomreynvitimiti: unity was the default desktop on 16.04 LTS, and probably still on 16.10 and maybe 17.04. what were you running before 19.04?06:53
OerHeksif that does not work, then there is nothing we can do i guess06:54
vitimititomreyn, the same with the same problem, as I say, I have been looking for a solution since then06:54
vitimititomreyn, I have been following a guy's post in ask Ubuntu as well, but he has had no answers either https://askubuntu.com/questions/1177964/ubuntu-19-04-audio-settings-are-not-being-rembembered06:55
doug16kmotaka2, do you have a usb hub? could be your laptop's usb 1.1 root hub is dead but 2.0/3.x is ok. try plugging a hub into the laptop and plug your devices into the hub06:56
motaka2OerHeks: Yes, I tried that too and no positive results06:56
motaka4doug16k: I was diconnected for a moment06:57
motaka4pardon me if I missed any o your comments06:58
doug16k<doug16k> motaka2, do you have a usb hub? could be your laptop's usb 1.1 root hub is dead but 2.0/3.x is ok. try plugging a hub into the laptop and plug your devices into the hub06:58
doug16kpreferably a decent hub that is at least usb 2.0 (of course)06:59
tomreynvitimiti: what'S the output of    ls -l /var/lib/alsa/asound.state06:59
vitimititomreyn, ls: cannot access '/var/lib/alsa/asound.state': No such file or directory07:00
tomreynhmm well i'm not sure whether it should exist on 19.0407:01
vitimitiI haven't touched a single sound config apart from the GUI settings that come with the system07:01
tomreyni think on 18.04 LTS, "alsactl store" would normally write this file on shutdown07:01
motaka4doug16k: no I dont have07:02
tomreynvitimiti: okay, that was misleading, it's not where this is stored anymore.07:02
doug16kmotaka4, sorry, out of ideas. I wish you luck07:03
tomreynvitimiti: you can try to find out how these settings are meant to be retained over reboots (mostly be web search, i guess, look for something "pulseaudio" or "alsa" related), then see whether this mechanism works on your system.07:05
motaka4doug16k: thanks a lot for your care. There are lots of threads with "unable to enumerate usb device" but i dont understand what they are suggesting07:05
vitimitiAha. I think it'd be easier to ditch GNOME, but thanks for trying07:05
tomreynvitimiti: i need to head out for now. good luck!07:05
tomreynvitimiti: you can also ensure you have all needed components of the ubuntu desktop installed using   sudo apt update && sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop^    (the caret character is not a typo)07:07
vitimitiI have installed this again 2 days ago to make sure, still nothing. I'm just gonna install a different Ubuntu based distro07:07
vitimitiCause I haven't got all my life to fix this07:07
tomreynme neither, so see you07:07
doug16kstill amazed everyday at the issues people have that I don't :D07:11
doug16kI mean it's the same code...07:11
yelofdoug16k: speaking from experience its easy for hardware, or an extra package, or one missing can make it all different with no easy way to tell.07:22
yelofbut livecd, or fresh install usually sort it out07:23
doug16kECC and cpu running at correct frequency for the win! :D07:36

ayewi dont know if that is possible - i believe that other than des havign implemented a workaround to hard bind it to a luancher, its read as a modifier key08:06
ayewi believe AHK on windows is capable of doing so though, so perhaps it is possible on linux08:07

tomreynonomatopie: we can only help with software issues, i'm afraid08:39
onomatopieYes I know! !IUI wasn;t affter help on that08:39
onomatopie Let me reboot and see :)08:40
onomatopieAlright let's see.08:41
onomatopieAlright something is still a bit amiss with this08:44

MJCDlotuspsychje, sorry it just occurred to me its a -server question08:48
lotuspsychjeonomatopie: on wich item does this occur?08:48
onomatopielotuspsychje: The ones with multiple windows open08:49
MJCDon a non-server question08:49
onomatopieBasically: It appears that there is a key pressed somewhere08:49
MJCDam I really expected to do all of that08:49
onomatopieBut I cannot work out which08:49
MJCDjust to run znc on reboot lol08:49
MJCDlike surely just `sudo service register znc; service start znc`08:49
lotuspsychjeonomatopie: please elaborate, maybe take a screenshot of what you mean, so volunteers can think along with you08:50

onomatopiedoug16k: Such a nice low tech solution! Thanks.. I think it worked]09:01
onomatopieYes. Very much see,s to have worked09:01
zambai have just completed the installation of ubuntu server on a system.. upon reboot i get "no operating system found."09:14
zambai have attempted both the live installation and also the alternative installation09:14
zambagrub installation was run09:14
zambawhat's going on here?09:14
tomreynzamba: maybe you booted the installer in legacy bios / csm mode while the standard system now tries to boot in eufi mode, or the other way around09:23
zambatomreyn: i tried changing from legacy and uefi boot in setup after installation, but none took09:27
tomreynzamba: which ubuntu server version did you install, which installer did you use (.iso file name), which hardware did you install on?09:31
zambatomreyn: ubuntu server 18.04.3 LTS.. 64-bit version.. ubuntu-18.04.3-server-amd64..09:38
zambai installed on a lenovo thinksentre09:38
tomreynzamba: was there any error message during installation? is there a reason you preferred the alternative server installer over the default one?09:40
tomreynzamba: there's this rather old post about boot issues with a similar message as the one you posted, on Lenovo ThunkCentre hardware: https://askubuntu.com/questions/141879/error-1962-no-operating-system-found-after-installing-12-04-lenovo-thinkcentre09:44
doug16konomatopie, nice09:45
zambatomreyn: because the same thing happened with the live installation09:49
zambatomreyn: no errors09:49
zambatomreyn: but this is frankly outrageous09:50
tomreynzamba: access the bios configuration screen, make sure that SATA mode is set to AHCI, not IDE, not RAID.09:50
tomreynzamba: Once that is done:  At the top of the screen select the Startup tab. After this, go ahead and select CSM and hit Now select the Enabled option. Go down a little and locate Boot Priority, after which hit Enter. Now change the current option of Legacy First to UEFI First.09:52
tomreynFinally, press the F10 key and choose YES.09:52
zambatomreyn: is all this in the bios?10:01
zambatomreyn: i don't have that legacy vs uefi first option10:01
zambatomreyn: i suspect it's a too old bios10:01
zambai tried changing the hard drive now10:01
tomreynzamba: yes, it's all in the bios10:01
tomreynif it's an old thinkcentre, and old bios for this thinkcentre, it may not be able to boot in uefi mode, and you should make it boot in CSM / Legacy BIOS mode.10:02
zambatomreyn: how do i make it boot in csm/legacy mode?10:03
zambai don't have those options in my bios10:03

zambaEriC^^: "rescue a broken system"?10:15
tomreynno. you'd write the iso to a usb stick10:15

zambaEriC^^: ok, it's up10:16
zambatomreyn: which one10:16
EriC^^zamba: do you have internet connectivity in it?10:16

EriC^^alright guess my minute's over10:26
zambaEriC^^: so reinstall in legacy mode?10:26
EriC^^zamba: yeah that should work10:26
tomreynzamba: or you could upgrade the bios and try again10:27
EriC^^he says he only has 30mins to get it running *shrug*10:27
tomreynoh right, then do legacy10:27
zambatomreyn: not able to write that iso to an usb10:27
zambatomreyn: etcher says "It looks like this is not a bootable image."10:28
tomreynsee above10:28
zambawhen booting the installer, it says: "The installer has detected that the following disks have mounted partitions: /dev/sda"10:29
zambawhat is this?10:29
zambai just booted off the usb10:29
zambahm.. shouldn't it create a /boot outside the lvm?10:29
zambaa simple ext2 for that?10:30
tomreynif you'll be booting in legacy bios mode then a tiny bios-grub partition (so outside lvm) will be needed, but /boot can be on the lvm10:31
zambatomreyn: the installer doesn't suggest that10:31
zambacould this be the problem?10:32
zambathe underlying problem, i mean?10:32
tomreynthe reason why your system failed to boot is certainly a firmware issue.10:33
zambatomreyn: how do i write that firmware upgrade to a bootable usb?10:33
EriC^^it could be nit picky like acer usually is with uefi10:34
tomreynzamba: anything regarding that would be supported by your hardware manufacturer10:34
EriC^^zamba: if the installer didnt suggest a bios-boot then it's likely booted in uefi mode again, or it repartitioned the disk as mbr instead of gpt, but i doubt10:34
EriC^^zamba: if you have any sort of shell, you could confirm the booted mode with "ls /sys/firmware/efi" and look for dirs there which means it's uefi mode10:35
zambathis is insane10:35
zambai have a flight to catch in 3 hours....10:36
EriC^^zamba: if you really only have 30mins i wouldnt bother with the upgrade, go straight to legacy, in fact, you can force install it in legacy if you wish10:36
zambaEriC^^: where do i do that?10:36
EriC^^zamba: we could convert your already installed install to legacy if you want10:37
EriC^^zamba: boot the live session again quickly10:37
zambaEriC^^: why didn't we do that 30 minutes ago? :)10:37
zambai need to get this to boot, asap zulu :)10:37
zambai'm currently installing ubuntu again10:37
zambaso i have to wait for that to finish - and probably fail again10:37
EriC^^zamba: cause running 1 command is easier10:38
zambathere should be a more stripped-down version of the installer10:40
zambai seem to remember that debian had an installed that just installed what you needed to get a base system up and running10:40
zambabut at least i got the option to install grub on a device now10:42
zambaso maybe, just maybe10:42

tomreynfor software installed in your home directory (which may not be accessible to other users), you should rather place a symlink in ~/.local/bin (and ensure this is added to your users' PATH via ~/.profile)11:03
cluelesspersonThis onscreen keyboard keeps popping up11:03
cluelesspersonIt's disabled, but it keeps popping up.11:03

lotuspsychjecluelessperson: are you on a tablet?11:04
cluelesspersonlotuspsychje, yes11:04
LACampbell96is there a way to lock function keys? no option in bios, fn+esc does not lock them, xev is sending results when I press it.11:04
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, that's usually a bios thing, but there may be a software option11:04
LACampbell96cluelessperson: there's no option in bios, only an option to disable switching the function lock state. works in windows. any idea what software option? google-fu is failing11:05
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, I think it's a firmware/bios thing still, there may be a way to interact with the controller, for example my keyboard backlight I can toggle as well11:07
afidegnumtomreyn: how do i add it to PATH?11:07
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, is there a "media keys" option?11:07
LACampbell96cluelessperson in BIOS? nope. just an option to enable or disable switching the fn lock state11:08
tomreynafidegnum: did the directory ~/.local/bin already exist?11:08
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, Oh, so you're looking how to switch FN status, not to set function vs media keys11:08
LACampbell96right! I need to press fn keys to do home/end on this laptop, so it's a bit of a PITA11:09
LACampbell96on windows I can just hold down fn+esc, and it works11:09
lotuspsychjecluelessperson: there's a few tweaks in dconf-editor for onscreen keyboard, maybe take a look there?11:09
afidegnumtomreyn: yes, i created the directory and added the symlink11:09
cluelesspersonlotuspsychje, I think it's a standardized keyboard/firmware/bios thing, but should have a tihng you can do...11:10
tomreynafidegnum: then you'll need to logout and login again11:10
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, ^11:10
LACampbell96lotuspsychje will check out dconf editor11:10
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, checkout xinput and see if there's a property there.11:10
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, that's for me.  the dconf editor thing. :)11:10
LACampbell96cluelessperson yes I've googled for hours, I seem to be the only person on the whole internet with this problem (:11:10
afidegnumtomreyn: no need to add anything to ~/.profile again?11:10
lotuspsychjeLACampbell96: that was not for you..11:10
cluelesspersonlotuspsychje,   it's disabled in gsettings11:10
LACampbell96lotuspsychje coincidence, my mistake11:11
tomreynafidegnum: you should already have this in ~/.profile: if [ -d "$HOME/.local/bin" ] ; then PATH="$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH" ; fi11:11
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, maybe in bios it's named with engrish.  "Hotkey Mode" ?11:11
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, what laptop?11:11
afidegnumno, i don't have it11:11
LACampbell96cluelessperson Asus zenbook, ux433fn11:11

tomreynafidegnum: which ubuntu verison is this?11:12
tomreyn!YY.MM | afidegnum11:13
ubottuafidegnum: Ubuntu version numbers are: YY.MM (YY=release year,MM=release month). Each year sees two releases, so just specifying YY is imprecise. See also https://www.ubuntu.com/about/release-cycle11:13
tomreynah ok11:13
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, and you said it works in Windows?11:13
afidegnumi just added what you posted11:13
tomreynafidegnum: did you upgrade it from an earlier version?11:13
LACampbell96cluelessperson correct, on windows I can just hold down fn+esc and it locks11:13
afidegnumtomreyn: no, fresh install last year11:13
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, that suggests it's software only.  Or perhaps a driver thing11:13
tomreynafidegnum: did you copy your .profile from a different computer?11:13
LACampbell96cluelessperson yeah, I thought a kernel module might solve but it's very hard to google for11:14
afidegnumi think so i don't recollect, i added paths to other executables as well11:14
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, I'm googling the hardware11:14
afidegnumtomreyn: no wait11:15
tomreynafidegnum: ~/.profile is actually placed there as a copy of /etc/skel/.profile by the time you create the user account11:15
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, how do you like the zenbook btw?11:15
afidegnumi had this already PATH="$HOME/bin:$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"11:15
tomreynafidegnum: and, unless you modified it, the code i posted would be in /etc/skel/.profile on ubuntu 18.0411:16
LACampbell96cluelessperson apart from this, I am enjoying it so far! tiny bezels. keyboard layout is a bit weird, but everything seems solidly built11:16
afidegnumtomreyn: that's the existing path i posted... PATH="$HOME/bin:$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"11:16
LACampbell96I have been using windows sub system for linux for a while due to this, but it's not the same11:16
afidegnumso, i m deleting the one just added11:17

afidegnumtomreyn: no way, it does not work11:18
tomreynafidegnum: echo $HOME $USER $PATH | nc termbin.com 999911:19
afidegnumdo i have a valid path ?11:22
tomreynafidegnum: it is quite the mess11:22
tomreynafidegnum: you should definitely clean this up.11:23
afidegnumthat's my .profile https://termbin.com/5f5s11:23
tomreynthere are many repetitions in there:  echo $PATH | tr ':' "\n" | sort -uniq -c | sort -nr11:24

tomreyn^ typo fixed11:24
EriC^^this one has 2 paths export PATH=$PATH:$ANDROID_HOME/flutter/bin:$PATH11:25
afidegnumi can't see it11:26
EriC^^also this is redundant export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin:$PATH:$GOBIN11:26
LACampbell96cluelessperson I need to head to sleep, thanks for the help anyway. you helped me rule out BIOS. there's no xev event, so that's where to start.11:26
EriC^^$GOBIN and $GOPATH/bin are the same11:26
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, make sure to check out acpi_listen11:27
EriC^^afidegnum: there's $PATH at the start and $PATH at the end11:27
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, my keyboard keys are mapped to xev and acpi events11:27
tomreynyour goal should be to limit PATH components to the absolute minimum possible. otherwise it's hard to debug when you're running which binary. also, the order in which components are listed is important. you should always list custom paths last so they won't override system binaries, for example.11:28
LACampbell96cluelessperson I mean fn+f3 fires a bunch of events. fn+esc (the keyboard lock) just tells me I've released esc11:28
tomreyn(that's unless you actually intend to override system binaries, but that's better done with (more specific) aliases)11:28
cluelesspersonLACampbell96, so maybe the firmware is responsible for capturing it, and it creates an acpi thing11:28
afidegnumEriC^^: are you refering to this ? PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin:$PATH:$GOBIN11:30
afidegnum GOBIN=$GOPATH/bin11:30
EriC^^afidegnum: yeah11:31

eekhoornI am trying to install ubuntu on my laptop. I just boot to the usb, but during the installation process my mouse and keyboard stop working. I can still move my mouse but clicking does not work an typing does not work. This only happens after ~10 seconds. In the beginning the mouse and keyboard work fine. How can I solve this?11:49
lotuspsychjeeekhoorn: wich ubuntu release are you trying to install please?11:50
tomreynafidegnum: if you're happy with the complexity this has now, you can logout and login again and run this to list all the components of your PATH in the order they're configured:   echo $PATH | tr ':' "\n"    and this to list the components which are listed more than once (there should never be more than one)   echp $PATH | tr ':' "\n" < path | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | grep -v '^      1 '11:50
tomreynafidegnum: typo fixed on the 2nd command:    echo $PATH | tr ':' "\n" < path | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | grep -v '^      1 '11:50

tdsI'd like to netboot 18.04's installer - this all seems to work ok with the netboot images linked at http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/netboot/bionic/ but is there any way to validate these?11:53
tomreynafidegnum: sorry, here's the second command again:   echo $PATH | tr ':' "\n" | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | grep -v '^      1 '11:53
TJ-eekhoorn: does that happen using the "Try Ubuntu" option without starting the installer itself ?11:53
tdsmaybe I'm missing something, but the mirrors don't support https (and I suppose shouldn't be trusted anyway), and I can't see any signed md5 lists or anything like that11:53
tomreynafidegnum: you now have 12 repetitions of /home/isodec/go/bin11:54
eekhoornTJ-: Yes. It also stops working after some time.11:54
tdsah! I'm being dumb, just found the sha256sums file :)11:55
afidegnumtomreyn: https://dpaste.de/Jd0h11:55
TJ-tds: you're effectively manually inside the archive. The signing root begins at http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/bionic-updates/InRelease (Release, Release.gpg)11:55
tomreynafidegnum: now make it so you no longer have repetitions11:56
TJ-tds: it should also have an 'images' sub-root with hashes http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/bionic-updates/main/installer-amd64/current/images/11:57
tdsah yes, that was the set of hashes I just found11:57
afidegnumi m at a loss... what do i delete to avoid the repetiitons?11:58
TJ-eekhoorn: that sounds like a possible hardware related issue. I'm wondering if the reading of the USB device is suffering I/O errors. As a test, if you can do this fast enough, as soon as the Try Ubuntu desktop loads press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal and type/paste "journalctl -bf" which will follow the boot log... if there are problems you'll then see clues11:59
afidegnumtomreyn: should i delete all $PATH ?11:59

afidegnumcan you pls post an example ?12:00
lotuspsychjepixelspaceships: burn the mini iso on it, then install all your likings from desktop12:00
tomreynafidegnum: you can see the defaults in /etc/skel/.profile12:00
tomreynafidegnum: i guess i can help and fix it up for you, but then you learnt nothing about it, and you really should since you seem to be a developer, and need to develop on a properly configured system.12:01
pixelspaceships@lotuspsychje I want the standard desktop though and I'm not sure which packages those are12:02
tdsTJ-: do you know if the netboot images are built once per release, or if they're regularly updated (am I better off using xenial rather than xenial-updates if I want the former)?12:02
eekhoornTJ-: I can type that, but journalctl -bf does not work. It says it cannot parse the f.12:02
lotuspsychjepixelspaceships: another alternate could be booting the desktop iso from grub method12:03
tds(in other words, how terrible of an idea is it to hardcode the sha1sum checks in my ipxe config? ;)12:03
lotuspsychjepixelspaceships: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/ISOBoot12:03
afidegnumtomreyn: i will take note, of the modifications, but i don't have an idea of what's causing the repetitions and /etc/skel/.profile contains the bare displayed at the top of the current .profile12:03
pixelspaceships@lotuspsychje that might be doable, grub is already installed. Thanks12:04
tomreynafidegnum: normally, the PATH variable of a logged in user "myuser" would be set to this on 18.04 LTS: /home/myuser/bin:/home/myuser/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/snap/bin12:05
tomreynafidegnum: if you can post your current ~/.profile i can see if i can improve upon it.12:06

diverdudeHi, what is 675/systemd-resolve that is bound to my port 53? I want to install bind9, but 675/systemd-resolve is blocking port 5312:10
satanisthi what is the best way to extend the size of a mbr extendet partition? (best on running system)12:10
tdsdiverdude: it's a local caching stub resolver - it should only listen on, so you can configure bind9 to listen just on your interface's IP if you'd like to run both at once12:11
=== BurekF is now known as Burek
diverdudetds: but i think bind9 binds to
diverdudetds: "local caching stub resolver" <--- whats that?12:14
tdsit'll forward queries to the dns resolver your machine is using, and cache the replies, and can also be configured to validate dnssec12:14
tdsif you want to just send all queries directly to your own resolver, you can stop and disable the service, and reconfigure /etc/resolv.conf and nsswitch.conf to stop using resolved12:15
MikizHi all I'm having a problem on Ubuntu 19.04 with Slack links. I have Slack installed and in settings it looks to be set to open slack:// links but when I open a link in web browser and I get the Open xdg-open dialog and click to open nothing happens.12:21
MikizI don't know much about xdg-open, does anyone know how I might investigate this?12:21
cluelesspersonis there a way to completely rip out this on screen keyboard?12:22
cluelesspersonI want it to stop appearing12:22
cluelesspersonand yes, it's disabled12:22
afidegnumtomreyn: have you gotten it?12:23
tomreynafidegnum: still working on it12:24
afidegnumok, thanks a million12:24
diverdudetds: but /etc/resolv.conf should not be configured directly right? I guess thats some setting that will be overwritten then ?12:26
tdsdiverdude: what's currently managing resolv.conf? is it a symlink to one of the files provided by resolved?12:28
diverdudetds: im not really sure. how to find out?12:28
tds`ls -l /etc/resolv.conf`12:28
leftyfbcluelessperson: can you show the screenshot of the onscreen keyboard being disabled? Also, I see it still running in the top right of your screen12:28
diverdudetds: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Sep  9  2018 /etc/resolv.conf -> ../run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf12:28
cluelesspersonleftyfb, that's a different onscreen keyboard software entirely12:29
cluelesspersonnothing to do with this one12:29
cluelesspersonleftyfb, https://i.imgur.com/RrS7RPe.png12:30
tdsdiverdude: so that's a file provided by resolved to make things use its stub resolver - you could keep using resolved by disable its stub listener by putting "DNSStubListener=no" in /etc/systemd/resolved.conf and then rming that symlink and pointing it at /var/run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf12:30
tdsthat way resolved keeps managing resolv.conf for you, and applications that go via nss will still use resolved directly over dbus, but it'll stop listening on udp/53 and allow you to start bind12:30
leftyfbcluelessperson: what version of ubuntu?12:31
ioriadiverdude, i think (not sure) you need to add  ' DNS=  ' to /etc/systemd/resolved.conf and restart  systemd-resolved12:32
leftyfbcluelessperson: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1326/block-caribou/12:32
cluelesspersonleftyfb, Ubuntu 19.0412:33
cluelesspersonleftyfb, that brings me to another problem12:33
cluelesspersonsometimes clicking on links, crashes chrome, or whatever browser12:34
leftyfbcluelessperson: ok, report a bug12:34
leftyfbcluelessperson: https://askubuntu.com/questions/960704/how-to-disable-the-on-screen-keyboard-in-17-1012:34
cluelesspersonleftyfb, how do I rip rout / uninstall caribou entirely?12:34
leftyfbcluelessperson: you don't know how to remove packages?12:35
cluelesspersonleftyfb, there is no package named "caribou" installed12:35
leftyfbcluelessperson: I don't know. If it's that ingrained in the system, it's probably not a good idea to "rip it out".12:37
MikizIf anyone can help with my slack links problem, I've found this error in logs: 14:35:04 gnome-shell: user-open error: Supplied URL scheme "slack" is not allowed12:37
cluelesspersonleftyfb, nothing should be "that engrained" it should all be modular12:37
tomreynafidegnum: https://termbin.com/04x612:39
leftyfbcluelessperson: I don't think it's caribou12:40
tomreynafidegnum: mv ~/.profile ~/.profile.beforetomreyns; curl https://termbin.com/04x6 > ~/.profile12:40
tomreynafidegnum: then review it, then logout and login, then run    echo $PATH12:40
tomreynafidegnum: make it this instead (sorry): https://termbin.com/yh0y12:41
afidegnumok, thanks,12:43
ioriacluelessperson,  that thing should be managed by gsd; disable it in universal access and maybe pkillall orca if running12:46
afidegnumtomreyn: thanks, i will make sure it sticks into my head12:46
tomreynafidegnum: i did not actually change much, so i'm not yet convinced that your effective PATH is now clean after logout and login.12:47
afidegnumthat's what i m doing now12:47
tomreynafidegnum: i.e. i suspect that you also modify systemenvironment variables elsewhere.12:47
afidegnumthis is what i have in my bashrc https://termbin.com/zu6o12:49
tomreynafidegnum: those last three lines really should be in ~/.profile instead12:50
afidegnumtomreyn: before i reload profile, this is the entry suggested to add to the current profile, is this correct? GEM_HOME="$HOME/gems"       PATH="$PATH:$HOME/gems/bin:$PATH"12:59
afidegnumtomreyn: no, this  GEM_HOME="$HOME/gems"       PATH="$PATH:$GEM_HOME/bin"13:01
leftyfbioria: orca is a screen reader (audio).13:06
tomreynafidegnum: here's how i'd do it: https://termbin.com/cywi   - also note that i made another mistake, which i just fixed up - I had appended those compoentns to the existing PATH, but should really have preprended them.13:09

TJ-Nothing4You: looks like you have an abundance of UTF-8 there, which may well cause issues13:13
Nothing4Youif the allowed characters are restricted the restriction should be listed on the pw change site though13:14

afidegnumno, wait13:17
afidegnumok, this is the last one https://dpaste.de/amap13:19
TJ-Nothing4You: indeed that was my point... some systems can be very restrictive over what is accepted. However, in your case, I suspect length first, followed by use of some diacritics13:20
tomreynafidegnum: did you actually logout and login?13:21
afidegnumor should i reboot the system ?13:21
Nothing4YouTJ-: either way it's a bug, i'm reporting it via mail now. restrictions should either be lifted or documented13:21
tomreynafidegnum: no need to reboot, no. so you'll need to find out where else these are defined. see the stackexchange link for some suggestions.13:22
afidegnumhow do i find additional sources ?13:22
afidegnumlet me try rebooting, maybe it might correct it13:24
TJ-tomreyn: afidegnum  looks like additional scripts being sourced on log-in ... what a mess!13:24
tomreynafidegnum: the pam_env(8) man page has suggestions, too. see also environ(7).13:25
eekhoornI was trying to install ubuntu 18.04 but during installation after ~10 seconds my mouse and keyboard stopped functioning. It was suggested that it might be a hardware error .After I tried to install windows and this worked fine. However, I still want ubuntu so does anyone know what could be the problem?13:25
tomreynTJ-: here's what we started with:  echo $HOME $USER $PATH | nc termbin.com 9999 # https://termbin.com/rp1x13:27
tomreyn<afidegnum> that's my .profile https://termbin.com/5f5s13:27
TJ-tomreyn: have you tried "grep -n PATH= .* " ?13:27
tomreynTJ-: no. i just rewrote afidegnum's ~/.profile: https://termbin.com/cywi13:28
lotuspsychjeeekhoorn: did you reply on the earlier advice volunteers gave you?13:29
eekhoornlotuspsychje: but they did not reply back. They said that typing journalctl -bf could help with debugging the problem. However, the f is not a legal flag. So I tried journalctl -b and it did not show errors. There was something about safe boot. So I tried enabling and disabling safe boot but the same thing happened.13:31
lotuspsychjeeekhoorn: can you boot into a live usb session and try the journalctl ?13:31
TJ-tomreyn: those repeated "to the *end* of my PATH" comments don't match what the code is doing - is that intentional?13:32
eekhoornlotuspsuchje: So my keyboard and mouse stop working after 10 seconds. But if I am quick I am able to type it yes.13:32
tomreynTJ-: i made a mistake initially, I had appended those user / application specific PATH components to the existing PATH, but should really have preprended them, so they don't override system binaries. but then i forgot to update those comments to state so.13:35
TJ-eekhoorn: my fault, it should have been "journalctl -fb" (got the letters the wrong way around)13:35
TJ-eekhoorn: the aim is to 'follow' (-f) the 'boot' (-b) log13:35
cluelessperson Question, how do I make ACPI actions run as a specific users?13:35
cluelesspersonuser*,  for example, I can't change xinput without doing it from the user's shell apparently13:36
tomreynTJ-: so my goal in rewriting afidegnum's ~/.profile is to have the custom paths prefix the system wide PATHs so that binaries in the system wide PATHs will override those in the user configured ones13:37
cluelesspersonNo protocol specified13:37
cluelesspersonUnable to connect to X server13:37
TJ-tomreyn: aha ... it looks like a can of worms !13:38
tomreynTJ-: if you have a better way to do it, suggestions welcome. :)13:38
tomreynpersonally, i like to keep my $PATH as short as possible.13:39
TJ-tomreyn: from what I could see the same or similar command was called 4 times, since I noticed what is usually the last entry added by system "/snap/bin" at various points13:39
TJ-tomreyn: I always install to /usr/local/  rather than $HOME; looks like it needs an overlayfs on top of $HOME/bin/ to bring all those external packages into one PATH directory !13:41
tomreynhehe, yes, probably13:41
lotuspsychjeeekhoorn: wich brand of computer is this please?13:42
tomreynTJ-: i actually do it the other way around, keep /usr/local as empty as possible and place stuff in ~/.local/bin or elsewhere in $HOME where possible13:42
TJ-tomreyn: I guess you only operate from a single user/system; I have /usr/local replicated across the network for multiple systems and users13:43
tomreynTJ-: i see how that makes sense then, yes13:45
afidegnumtomreyn: this is what I've got so far https://dpaste.de/PqEh13:50
afidegnumbut i can't seems to call navicat from .local/bin13:51
tomreynafidegnum: the comments i added to your ~/.profile were incorrect, you can fix them by running:   sed -i 's/\*end\*/\*start\*/g' ~/.profile13:52
afidegnumwhat will it modify?13:53
TJ-afidegnum: tomreyn  repeats of "/home/isodec/Android/Sdk/flutter/bin" so I'd guess the entries in .profile are not required since something like .bashrc is sourcing another file that is also adding those13:53
TJ-afidegnum: tomreyn actually, "/home/isodec/gems/bin" repeats, which suggests .profle is being sourced twice13:54
afidegnumit's been sourced on .bashrc but i removed it and added it to .profile13:55
tomreynafidegnum: what this command i just gave you would change is the comments which currently would say  "Add my ... binaries path to the *end* of my PATH (not overriding system binaries)" - the command would replace "*end*" by "*start*" on these comments.13:55
TJ-afidegnum: something is still being sourced to add those, so check .bashrc (and any files it sources and so on)13:59
tomreynTJ-, afidegnum: the output at https://dpaste.de/PqEh (lines 2 to 10) shows what repeats - which is all the custom PATH components, so i agree ~/profile seems ot be sourced twice.14:00
tomreyn* ~/.profile14:00
WiseMonkHello,I created a new user on Lubuntu 18.04, and now when I connect to the internet it popups to create a new keyring. How can I set it to use the login-keyring instead?14:00
afidegnumok, i think there is a script sourcing .profile  initially, when ran to check the occurances of echo $PATH it returned nil14:01
afidegnumtill i manually sourced .profile14:01
afidegnumthat's how you get 2 occurences14:01
afidegnumI have fixed the navicat issue too... i added sh /navicat-path and it works14:01
afidegnumbut the terminal hangs. how do should the application be detached from the terminal so i can use teh terminal for something else, ?14:02
TJ-afidegnum: no script should source .profile, bash does that itself at INVOCATION for log-in/interactive shells14:03
tomreynyou probably needed to    chmod +x ~/.local/bin/navicat14:03
eekhoornlotuspsychje: It is an HP Zbook. I had ubuntu 16.04 on it. Worked fine, but I though Gnome would be nice.14:03
afidegnumi did chmox +14:03
afidegnumbut it returned empty14:04
lotus|i5eekhoorn: could be a kernel thing, perhaps try a !nomodeset to bypass?14:04
teryxeonhello guys14:05
lotus|i5welcome teryxeon how can we help you?14:05
teryxeoni just found out about this irssi14:05
tomreynTJ-: can you recommend a good summary of how dotfiles work / are sourced and on how PATH should be built? I was looking for a good summary in man pages and online but could only find https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/26047/how-to-correctly-add-a-path-to-path14:06
TJ-tomreyn: "man bash" INVOCATION ... " When bash is invoked as an interactive login shell..."14:07
tomreyni think i am aware of the major pitfalls but someone who has a lengthy path and supposedly develops software (like afidegnum) should really get to know how this works.14:07
lotus|i5!chat | teryxeon welcome to the ubuntu community14:07
ubottuteryxeon welcome to the ubuntu community: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please register with NickServ (see /msg ubottu !register) and use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!14:07
tomreynTJ-: hmm, yes, the (obviously bash specific) 'INVOCATION' section in bash(1) is not exactly easy to understand for new users but at least should be correct.14:09
WiseMonkhow can I create a login keyring for new user?14:09
TJ-WiseMonk: I *think* you need to start 'seahorse' the application that deals with Certificates and Passwords (has differing names in GUI menus but is "seahorse" in terminal )14:11
tomreynafidegnum: it's "chmod +x path/to/file", and commonly, when a command which does not need to provide output succeeds, it will create no output.14:11
WiseMonkTJ- I just installed seahorse,but it has no entry called "login.." is it just enough to create one with that name?14:12
TJ-WiseMonk: I don't know; I haven't used Gnome in 10 years but we do see issues with it when a user manually changes their password and it gets out of sync with the seahorse user keyring password14:13
WiseMonki use LXDE14:13
TJ-WiseMonk: Maybe LXDE doesn't handle it automatically. Might be worth asking in #lubuntu14:14
WiseMonkI use lubuntu.is there a remintal command to solve it?14:14
WiseMonkok ill try there14:14
afidegnumtomreyn: i moved to the location of the file that's after i edited it and added chmod +x :)14:15
tomreynafidegnum: so   ls -l ~/.local/bin/navicat    should now should that it has mode 'x' set14:17
tomreynafidegnum: and you should be able to run it as    navicat    as the "isodec" user14:18
afidegnum-rwxr-xr-x 1 isodec isodec 74 Oct  6 13:58 /home/isodec/.local/bin/navicat14:18
lotus|i5WiseMonk: lubuntu has not seahorse installed by default, start from terminal instead if you dont see a menu item14:18
=== lotus|i5 is now known as lotuspsychje
afidegnumbut this is not a symlink rather ... #!/bin/sh\n sh /navicat/navicat/start_navicat  where navicat is also +x14:20
afidegnumtomreyn: if i move to the real navicat folder, i can start it via the terminal but even that the terminal does not output a new line when the interface is launched14:21
WiseMonkI starte from terminal vial "seahorse" command,it doenst list a login keyring14:21
tomreynafidegnum: i do not know what "navicat" is or does, so i cannot tell what output it should (not?) generate.14:22
lotuspsychjeWiseMonk: https://help.gnome.org/users/seahorse/stable/14:23
tomreynafidegnum: if you have this \n character verbatim in /home/isodec/.local/bin/navicat then that's a mistake14:23

tomreyni.e. you have a responsibility there.14:27
WiseMonklotuspsychje I just solved the problem, by creating an admin-user instead of desktop-user, seems to be a bug in Lubuntu 18.0414:32

omega_doomIf i copy some text in vim to prinary or to clipboard then i can paste it to the other vim instance. But i cannot paste it to the terminal or other editor.15:10

omega_doomioria: How can i enable it and why i can paste to an other vim instance?15:17
ioriaomega_doom, you don't access the system clipboard when you copy on another intance15:18
imbezolbasically you have the option of using vim's own clipboard, which remembers other vim specific information about the cut, or the option of using X's clipboard15:18
ioriaomega_doom, you have to use another (gnome) version of vim15:19
omega_doomOh, is it really vim's own clippbard that allows to copy/paste between instances?15:20
omega_doomioria: gnome version? Is it gui version?15:21

monstercois it possible to move an LVM from one physical drive to another?17:51
monstercoI have a failing HDD and installed a new one17:51
B|ack0ptonyt: sorry tabbing you but what was the command you suggested earlier?17:56
TJ-monsterco: Yes; create a PV, add it to the VG, then use lvconvert --replace or --replace17:57
lenny_lemonhi. I play music after converting to flac format from rhytmbox and application just disappear but music still plays. How can i stop it? ubuntu 16.0417:58
TJ-monsterco: err... or --repair !17:58
TJ-monsterco: see "man lvconvert"17:58
monstercoTJ- so add to the same virtual group?17:58
monstercowhat is the command to add to same vg17:58
TJ-monsterco: if you've not done this before I suggest practicing in a virtual machine on another system first; it is easy to break it17:59
B|ack0pnevermind.. i will install ubuntu back18:00
TJ-monsterco: pvcreate <new-device> && vgextend MY_VG <new-device>    then use the lvconvert to move the LV to <new-device>18:01
lenny_lemonhow can I stop music from rhytmbox in background as application disappeared? in ubuntu 16.0418:02
monstercolvconvert is to move?18:04
monstercoTJ- I did extend and see 1.8TB instead of 931GB so this is good but I don't see the new drive showing in GUI (this is proxmox). Is there something else I have to do as well?18:09
TJ-monsterco: you'll need to use lvconvert with an appropriate option to move the LV(s) to the <new-device> PV from the <old-device> PV18:15

kostkonlenny_lemon, you can access it from the speaker icon18:37
nanthencodeneeththanks kostkon . let me ceck18:38
OerHeksnanthencodeneeth, hi, welcome back, last time we found out that packages stay behind,  your install want 1:8.0-0ubuntu3 but the repos are at 1:8.0-0ubuntu3.10, no updates pending..18:38
lenny_lemonkostkon, wawww. silly meeeee... i didn't know that... thanks... not experienced with linux, still learning...18:38

lenny_lemonwhat is good program to burn flac files to blank cd in ubuntu?18:40
nanthencodeneethis  thereany way to install   1:8.0-0ubuntu318:41
nanthencodeneeththere any*18:41
lenny_lemonor how can I burn flac files to blank cd to make audio...? is there any other files recommended to convert mp3 to make audio cd than flac files?18:44
rud0lfyou would lose quality converting to mp318:45
lenny_lemonrud0lf, no I have mp3 but need to convert it to some audio files...18:46
rud0lfBrasero is simple, nice burning app for ubuntu18:46
rud0lfit should accept and convert mp3's too18:46
rud0lfor rather, i would be surprised if not18:46
lenny_lemonwhat file type I should convert it to?18:47
lenny_lemonI have converted it to flac files...18:47
rud0lfwhat do you have initially?18:47
rud0lfi can see (have it running now) it accepts mp3, flac, ogg, wav, and wma18:48
lenny_lemonmp3 and flac... but mp3 does not recognize in mini system, probalby because mp3 is 1h relaxing music so big file...18:48
rud0lfno more formats on my disk18:48
OerHeksnanthencodeneeth, when i look back at your last visit, all your packages are old, https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/S5dPfJmmtb/18:48
lenny_lemonother mp3 like 3-8MB plays fine...18:48
rud0lfohhh so you don't mean "cd-audio"18:48
OerHekslinux-image-generic-hwe-16.04 should give but you have
lenny_lemonrud0lf, I want to make cd-audio18:49
rud0lflike the regular, old-school cd-player?18:49
lenny_lemonkind of...18:49
OerHeksi think your mirror is old, change it to main?18:49
rud0lfyou sure what CD-Audio is?18:49
rud0lfbecause when you're sure that's mp3 what is burned, it may be refular data disk, and your audio systems simply recognizes mp3 files18:50
rud0lfCD-Audio is 60-70 minutes of audio tracks18:50
rud0lfregular, not refular18:50
lenny_lemonMCM240 micro system Philips18:50
rud0lflet me google it18:50
lenny_lemonrud0lf, but other mp3 I burn the same way long ago it plays fine on same disc...18:51
rud0lfi guess that's a nickname for regular data disk with mp3 on it18:52
rud0lfoh, here's the answer "Audio files on an MP3 CD are stored like any other file on a regular CD-ROM, using the Yellow Book CD standard."18:52
lenny_lemonwhat does it mean?18:53
rud0lfso all you need is "data disk project" in Brasero and drop your mp3s there18:53
lenny_lemonI want to burn it into Verbatim CD-R 700MB 52x 80min18:53
rud0lfit means that mp3s are stored like a normal data on cd-rom/dvd, like games or galleries on cd are18:53
rud0lfi just said what you need :)18:54
tatertotzone day CD's for audio will truly be a thing of the past18:54
lenny_lemonI'll try to install brasero and burn it again as mp3, what you think?18:54
rud0lfi'm surprised cds are still popular and apps/drivers come in that format18:54
rud0lfyes, but remember to chose "data disk" not "audio cd"18:54
rud0lfbrasero should be in default ubuntu program repository18:55
nanthencodeneethis it possible to open Software & Updates for ubuntu xfce18:55
lenny_lemonrud0lf, don't have it on 16.0418:56
lenny_lemonalready installing18:56
rud0lfnanthencodeneeth: it's there18:57
nanthencodeneethyes it is possible i found out i sould have checked how to open software & updates before asking.Sorry for the silly question18:57
rud0lfno question in need to find a wanted solution is silly18:58
lenny_lemonSome files don't have a suitable name for a fully Windows-compatible CD.18:58
lenny_lemonThose names should be changed and truncated to 64 characters.18:58
lenny_lemoncould be that a issue?18:58
rud0lfi mean18:59
rud0lfyou need to fix it :)18:59
rud0lfi don't know what your audio system accepts18:59
rud0lfi quickly searched for manual for it, but all it's "DUH. it plays music, right?"18:59
lenny_lemonjust went through it and going with recommendations...19:04
lenny_lemoni tried other burned cd with mp3 and works fine...19:04
rud0lflenny_lemon: so "some" of mp3 does not play? or just the 1-hour one?19:05
lenny_lemononly the 1h... i got 4 of them on cd and play it on laptop but not micro system... but other mp3 files it plays fine...19:06
lenny_lemoni have started burning process as data disk as you recommended... will let know after burn...19:08
TJ-lenny_lemon: could it be the micro system has a file-size limit?19:08
lenny_lemonTJ-, that what I was thinking but how can I check it or find out?19:09
rud0lflenny_lemon: a proper datasheet from philips19:09
monstercotds - what is the command to move the entire pv?19:09
TJ-lenny_lemon: trial and error! I was working with some CD duplicator towers a few months back... had to use trial an error to discover that despite the CD-audio red-book standard requiring support for 99 tracks... they limited it to 43 tracks... and I was struggling to understand why my 46 trac masters were being duplicated into coasters19:10
lenny_lemonrud0lf, what is datasheet? you mean like supporting files or?19:11
rud0lflenny_lemon: i mean specification of accepted formats19:11
lenny_lemonTJ-, you mean like simulate before burn process?19:11
rud0lf"mp3" is a broad term19:12
rud0lflenny_lemon: it's like buying new tv and been told "it displays picture"19:12
rud0lfyou could search for some tool that recodes mp3 into "most common" and strips weird metadata19:13
lenny_lemonrud0lf, like you mean in more detailed way...?19:13
rud0lflenny_lemon: yes19:13
tdsmonsterco: pvmove is probably what you want, but I'd want to test it in a vm or something before doing it on a live thin pool19:13
rud0lfit's strange but mp3 interpreter/library is technically stream-oriented19:14
rud0lfit means it shouldn't be surprised by a big size19:14
TJ-lenny_lemon: no, as in create files of different lengths up to the size you know fails and try playing them on the micro system until you discover if a particular size triggers the failure to play19:14
TJ-lenny_lemon: the other thing to ensure is all files are encoded the same way ... some used a constant bit rate (CBR) others variable (VBR) - some players might have problems with particular combinations of rate or variablility19:15
rud0lflenny_lemon: found it!19:17
tdsmonsterco: also, if you don't need to do this live, you can avoid all the manual poking by just adding it as a new pv + vg + thin pool, adding it as storage to pve, and moving it through the ui19:17
monstercohow to move through UI?19:17
monstercothis is Proxmox 4.2 and I don't see any move but I see Backup and Restore which works for each and every container (one by one)19:18
rud0lfISO9660, Joliet, UDF-1.5; maximum title number 400, maximum album number 40, 32kHz, 44.1kHz, 48 kHz sample rate supported, 32-256kbps bitrate19:18
rud0lfsays nothing about file sizee19:18
monstercotds - but I have a problem of bad sectors on HDD so need to find a way to add the new HDD to allow them to get backedup to new HDD19:19
InnovAnon-IncI am dual-booting windows. Hardware clock is set to local time. The clock app displays the correct time. `apt update` says the release file is not valid yet. I tried `timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 && timedatectl set-timezone <timezone>`. Now clock app is wrong.19:19
rud0lflenny_lemon: are you familiar with using linux terminal? navigate to the directory where your 1-hour mp3 is, and issue a command: file <mp3-filename>19:19
rud0lfshould give you basic info about that file19:19
lenny_lemonit works now...19:19
tdsmonsterco: select your vm -> resources -> select the disk -> move volume should do it19:20
rud0lfcan you be more specific, lenny_lemon ?19:20
TJ-InnovAnon-Inc: better to set hardware clock to UTC and tell Windows to use it properly19:20
tdsi'm not sure if that'll just dd it over or rsync though19:20
lenny_lemonmaybe I burned it as audio instead data19:20
TJ-InnovAnon-Inc: unless there's an option in the GUI clock to compensate19:20
InnovAnon-Incyes, but I'm not really supposed to mess with the hard drive, BIOS/EFI or other persistent settings19:20
lenny_lemonso it supports long mp3 too...19:20
monstercotds - Move Volume doesn't exist where you said19:20
rud0lflenny_lemon: bingo!19:20
tdsmonsterco: oh, maybe it was only added in pve 519:21
tdssaying that, pve 4 is pretty ancient at this point, no?19:21
monstercoProxmox 4.219:21
monstercoprobably but i am stuck with it19:21
monstercountil i have time to wipe it out....19:22
tdsi suppose it's jessie, so still debian-supported for a bit19:22
rud0lfif you burned that mp3 as audio, it would be converted to plain data, and take 90% of space of audio cd19:22
rud0lfand would work with no problem19:22
lenny_lemonrud0lf, but what did you mean by mp3 is broad term?19:22
lenny_lemonwhat kind of mp3 there are?19:22
rud0lfmp3: various tags, metadata - album art for example, various encoding way19:22
monstercotds -19:22
TJ-lenny_lemon: CD-audio stores raw PCM data, it doesn't do compression like MP3. It requires 44.1KHz 16-bit  PCM data (usually read from WAV files)19:23
lenny_lemonTJ-, because it plays mp3 know is more convenient to use it as I store more music on cd than in audio files19:25
tdsmonsterco: oh yes, it was only implemented in 2018 https://git.proxmox.com/?p=pve-container.git;a=commit;h=3c0f680645fea5284c88c0bfcf0b6b23fc30ce2f19:26
tdsand your version of pve-container will be from 201619:27
monstercoah I see - shame for my server19:27
monstercoI am doing a dd on one of the containers just to make sure I have a backup19:27
monstercoand I think it's showing some bad sectors19:27
monstercois this so?19:27
monstercodd: error reading ‘/dev/pve/vm-20121-disk-1’: Input/output error19:27
monstercoabout 14 records are bad?19:27
TJ-lenny_lemon: that's the use-case for them... a regular ISO9660 level-2 file-system allows 212 character paths (directory + filename)19:27
tomreynmonsterco: are you actually running ubuntu there?19:28
doug16kmonsterco, check dmesg19:28
tdstomreyn: pve is ubuntu-ish :)19:28
monstercodoug16k - it's a failing HDD and dmesg shows19:29
doug16kmonsterco, use ddrescue to dd a bad drive, it will tolerate errors without quitting so easily19:30
monstercodoug16k - for your entertainment: https://termbin.com/ctsu19:30
monstercodoug16k - do you think this will quit? it has been going on for a while19:30
monstercoMy problem is that after the move everything is still bad which it will most likely be. MySQL inside the container was not running :(19:31
doug16kmonsterco, SATA right? linux error handling with NCQ is sloppy. it fails all outstanding commands on error. I'd suggest disabling NCQ on that port19:32
monsterconot sure if sata or scissi - how can I tell? but i think it is sata19:32
monstercodoug16k - do you think this will get to the 95gb mark?19:33
monstercoor am i wasting time19:33
monstercop.s. what does that +14 records in mean? that is 14 bad sectors?19:34
doug16k14MB/s? ouch19:34
doug16kmonsterco, should be nearly two hours, assuming speed stays about there19:36
monstercodoug16k - yeah and that is excruciating. Going from one HDD to another. Is there a faster way?19:36
doug16kfailing drives retry a ton of times before reporting failure. not much you can do if you care at all about recovering something19:37
doug16kit's doing its best19:38
monstercoso if MySQL still fails after I turn ON this container, is there anything I can do or it's pretty much gone?19:39
TJ-monsterco: was the data not on a RAID mirror? not backed up (dumped) or snap-shotted?19:42
TJ-monsterco: then, as the saying goes, that data wasn't important19:43
InnovAnon-Incok I figured it out. if your hw clock is set to local time, and you can't make persistent changes to the system, then `timezonectl set-timezone <tz>&&timedatectl set-local-rtc 0&&timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 --adjust-system-clock` then `apt update` will work19:44
TJ-InnovAnon-Inc: great find :)19:44

fastpenguinI'm having an impossible time trying to join a public wifi via Ubuntu...  Is there an easy way to get through to the "captive portal" that public wifi's use  on Ubuntu?22:21
fastpenguinI can't even connect to the network to get to the captive portal... Just says "activation of network connection failed"22:22
akemhpMaybe your Wifi signal is too low.22:23
fastpenguinHow do I check that? I'm pretty sure it's fine...22:24
fastpenguinI haven't booted into my windows to check if that works.22:24
akemhpfastpenguin, I think you should see it when chosing the network to connect to. The %% level. I don't see any other reason why it would not connect to an open Wifi AP.22:25
fastpenguinakemhp  I have a similar problem at a different wifi spot... At my school I have to log into Ubuntu's default DE, and sign in.. then log out, then log into i3 and connect... because I can't connect using i3 for some reason.22:27
fastpenguinakemhp I'll try I have to login to an irc on my phone (and find an app that isn't a worthless POS that allows me to connect)22:28
akemhpThere is AndChat on Android.22:29
akemhpWell i don't know for your Wifi issue, sounds strange.22:29
fastpenguinakemhp on iPhone unfortunately lol.22:29
fastpenguinakemhp:  it's apparently a pretty common problem.  Ubuntu refuses redirects when the browser(?) tries to send to the captive portal.22:30
akemhpfastpenguin, No idea, i never used captive portals on Ubuntu, but maybe it's a browser issue, try Firefox and Chromium.22:32
fastpenguinakemhp:  I'm not intentionally using a captive portal. It's what this starbucks is using... or my School uses to force you to accept the terms and conditions.  It's not something I believe I can get out of.22:34
fastpenguinsigh... oh well. Fuck ubuntu I guess. Piece of garbage.    Or maybe I'm just stupid. ugh.22:36
brendantccmaybe you should bring along a windows 10 tablet or something and make use of the "mobile hotspot" feature to bypass the issue fastpenguin :p22:37
* extor has a laptop with an AMD A6-9200 processor and the video card shows up as an AMD/ATI "Stoney" [Radeon R2/R3/R4/R5 Graphics] [revo c0]. Where can drivers for this be obtained so that openGL support is enabled? 22:48

extorMy laptop is a Dell Inspiron 3565 which ubuntu says is an approved hardware platform. It even says sometimes Dell shipped ubuntu pre installed on this laptop but when I went to Dell.com to look for linux related stuff the downloads for ubuntu were ZERO!23:49
in_cognitobashing, thanks. I will look through them. I cannot tell you how many I have already read, and each advises a different set of tools, be it, RUFUS or PenDrive Or Unetbootin,23:50
Bashing-omin_cognito: sudodus gives a good tutorial on the process :)23:51
Bashing-omextor: ubuntu and AMD provide AMD drivers in the kernel.23:51
in_cognitoreally quick question, I have downloaded the ISO on my HDD and I am using a tool like RUFUS or MKUSB. do I need 2 USB drives for the process? Can I just tell the software to use the ISO on the HDD and install with persitence on the USB drive?23:52
extorBashing-om, are these kernel only and not modules? How do I know if my kernel has these drivers already or do I need to custom compile them23:53
Ben64extor: any recent kernel would have support23:56
Bashing-omextor: FYI You are listed in the #linux channel as active - and to see if a module (driver) is available: ' lsmod | grep amdgpu ' in this use case.23:56
in_cognitoman, this SUKS, it seems as if I do need 2 USB drives to get one up and running. I thought it would have been sufficient to have the ISO on my HDD and use that to install to the USB. Does anyone know why exactly it requires a full functioning version of UBUNTU to create another? Am I reading this wrong? Also, once and if I get the persistent drive23:59
in_cognitoup and running can I then use that to clone other USB drives?23:59
