doug16kah I see. when I change it through my keyboard it changes in huge increments but dragging the volume with mouse is fine. can I make the volume keybinds less aggressive?01:02
doug16kfigured it out. you have to hold shift when you change the volume. it makes it change half as much01:10
whislockshibboleth: netplan is already in 18.04 LTS and every subsequent release. netplan is not a replacement for systemd-networkd or NetworkManager. All it is is a configuration utility, and that's all its designed to be. You can easily remove it if desired, or disable its functionality.01:26
wxbwhislock, What is it though??01:26
whislockwxb: It's a YAML-based network configuration generator.01:26
longus_catusI just upgraded to Ubuntu 19.10 from... 19.04 and it seems that my fonts put chinese at a higher priority than japanese...which makes the wrong versions of certain symbols appear.  How do I change this (without making japanese my ui default language) (japanese support works fine already, it's just the wrong version of the font)01:27
wxbDo some people have concerns about it?01:27
Bashing-om!netplan | wxb01:27
ubottuwxb: Netplan is a network configuration abstraction renderer which uses YAML descriptions of a network to work with either a NetworkManager or Systemd-networkd "renderer". More information at https://netplan.io/01:27
whislockwxb: There are a few very small features that exist in systemd-networkd and NetworkManager that netplan does not yet support.01:27
wxbthanks Bashing-om :)01:27
whislockwxb: There are bugs open for two of them.01:27
wxbOkay. Is it a big deal though? Sounds kinda regular to me, but I'm likely missing something... It's not like 'Ubuntu drops Unity' earth-shattering news, is it?01:29
sarnoldit's change, and people get cranky with change01:29
sarnoldI've certainly had my moments :)01:29
wxbAre other distros adopting it?01:29
sarnoldbut I certainly had frustrations with /etc/network/interfaces so this one's a lot easier for me to accept :) hehe01:29
LabuI run ubuntu 19.04 on dell insipron 13 7000 2-in-1. I would like to know how I can make a bug report. I try ubuntu-bug about many issues with hardware but ubuntu-bug need a PID of a program.01:30
sarnoldubuntu-bug can also take a package name or executable name01:30
Labusarnold: yes but it's not related to package in particular01:31
Labuto *a pacjager01:31
sarnoldhehe, don't worry too much about simple typos, most folks on irc are quite good at reading around them01:31
Labuthe touchpad doesn't work, it doesn't recover from a "suspend to RAM", the touchscreen doesn't work01:32
longus_catusWell, that sucks...01:33
sarnoldyeah, that's a lot to have go wrong :(01:34
Labuyes :-(01:34
longus_catusIt would be more expedient to search for your hardware on a google, and poke in some forums01:34
longus_catusThen again, I'm not exactly sure how Ubuntu takes hardware support requests01:35
Labuon the previous version of dell inspiron  linux seems to work. It's a very recent version with a Intel I7 10th gen . Perhaps a driver issue... I tried with fedora and I get exctly tyhe smae problem01:39
LabuIt's a laptop provided by my enterprise. I would make a bug report and get some advice from developper which could confirm the driver issue (or find a solution pehaps)01:42
Labuis there a bug report system for the kernel ?01:42
longus_catusIt's not an Ubuntu specific problem...and you're probably not the first person to have this problem01:43
LabuI mean for linux itself01:43
sarnoldubuntu-bug linux  will file a bug report in launchpad against the kernel01:43
sarnoldbugzilla.kernel.org also exists, but they'll likely want you to test with 'upstream kernels', eg built from git sources01:43
Labuok I am ging to do this01:43
sarnoldyou'll probably need to do both01:44
sarnoldlinux is almost certainly the right choice for the suspend issues01:44
sarnoldI'm less sure of the trackpad and touchscreen01:44
LabuI don't think I am competent to compile a kernel from scratch01:44
LabuI could try with a arch or a gentoo the kernel  is perhaps more recent01:46
sarnolddepending on the machine, it might not be too bad; if you download the sources, run 'make localmodconfig' 'make bzImage modules install' ; 'sudo make install' it'd probably get there01:46
Labusarnold are you sure ? I tried to build a LFS and the book learn howt to make a chroot environment with very specific package to build it. I am afraid I will not have the required dependencies in ubuntu. For the touchpad and the touchscreen Aren't the driver be loaded as kernel module ?01:51
sarnoldLabu: if you don't usually build software, installing the 'build-essential' metapackage would bring in a large number of other packages needed for building.. it's possible the kernel would require still more, but I don't expect too many01:52
ironpillowHi all, I have my account on ubuntu machine with a strong password. What if anyone get's hold of the hard drive from the machine, can they access my data?01:53
sarnoldI'm not sure about the touchpad and touchscreen -- those drivers could live in userspace. libinput does quite a lot of the heavy lifting for those sorts of devices01:54
sarnoldironpillow: did you use full disk encryption or per-user data encryption in the installer?01:54
ironpillowsarnold: hey!01:54
vltironpillow: Yes. Unless you have an additional encrypted file system.01:54
ironpillowI used the basic installer with LVM option. I don't know if it encrypts full disk or per-user01:55
Labuok sarnold, it's tricky... but I don't take a big risk. at wortst it will not compile01:56
sarnoldironpillow: does 'lsblk' show any crypt or luks lines?01:56
ironpillowThis is a headless ubuntu server installation. So I didn't use the regular GUI01:57
ironpillowsarnold: checking01:57
sarnoldI think mount | grep -i ecrypt could show you if you used per-user encrypted home dirs, assuming you're logged in with a user account that has such a directory01:57
ironpillowlsblk doesn't show any crypt or luks lines01:58
ironpillowmount | grep -i ecrypt does show any output01:59
sarnolddoes? or does not?02:00
ironpillowsorry - does not02:00
ironpillowvlt: can they also ready root user's files?02:01
sarnoldthen there is a very good chance that your data is stored entirely unencrypted, and it would be quite trivial for someone who has stolen your computer to get access to the data on it02:01
vltironpillow: Yes.02:01
ironpillowvlt: oh no!02:01
sarnoldit's pretty easy to reboot with eg "init=/bin/bash" kernel command line parameter and have a fully privileged root shell with no restrictions02:01
sarnold(it's very handy in case you forget your password; sooner or later every linux admin will need this :)02:02
vltironpillow: That’s what full disk encryption is for.02:02
ironpillowanyway to encrypt it post installation - I am using LVM02:02
sarnoldyou could rely on bios drive locking, but that can be circumvented by removing your hard drive controller and replacing it with an unlocked drive controller. not easy but not impossible02:03
vltironpillow: Yes. Just pvmove to an encrypted PV02:03
vltironpillow: Your kernel usually needs to be run from an unencrypted part of the disk, though.02:03
vltironpillow: And you need to have the cryptsetup binary in your initrd.img.02:04
ironpillowoh...didn't know about `pvmove`.02:04
ironpillowoh so pvmove will only work if cryptsetup binary was in my initrd.img?02:04
ironpillowsarnold: I'll check if my bios supports it02:05
whislockBIOS drive locking doesn't actually secure the information on the disk.02:05
vltironpillow: No, pvmove works independently.02:05
whislockJust to be clear.02:05
vltironpillow: You need to have cryptsetup *outside* your encrypted system to unlock it, obviously ;)02:06
sarnoldyes; full disk encryption is the 'gold standard' here02:06
ironpillowGot it. I have to read up on cryptsetup and pvmove02:07
ironpillowThanks all!02:07
sarnoldhave fun ironpillow :)02:09
de-factoironpillow, maybe something like this? https://hamy.io/post/0009/how-to-install-luks-encrypted-ubuntu-18.04.x-server-and-enable-remote-unlocking/    you might rely on the IP network in between to be sure not to remotely unlock an "evil clone" though02:15
de-factoi would not want to rely on closed source hw disk controllers for encryption as they store the data encryption key which you unlock with your password and you cant know there is no second "security by obscurity" key hidden in there for third party unlocking02:21
sarnoldheck, they aren't even *that* good02:23
sarnoldmost encrypted hard drive things are just garbage, heh02:23
whislockMany encrypted hard drive implementations use hard-coded passwords/keys that are common to ALL drives in the product line.02:27

ngmBluetooth audio pauses for few seconds for a while, is the wifi conflicting with bluetooth in anyway that the transfer is being affected? or is there any config to get the bluetooth transfer with good speed? Some info: driver: rtw_pci, modules: rtw_pci, r8822be.Also I am connected to wifi for internet.

igeniwhen i check the lifecycle span of ubuntu 19.0408:20
igeniit says its a interim release08:20
igenidoes that mean it will get support for alot of years or only the selection of years in grey https://ubuntu.com/about/release-cycle08:20
igenifrom what i read its only the grey periood right, so for a production server i should upgrade to 2008:20
lotuspsychjeigeni: its not really reccomended to use non-lts versions for produtcion08:20
lotuspsychjeigeni: non-lts releases are supported for 9months08:21
igenino lts are versions in interim?08:21
igenii can just do a release-upgrade from 19.04 to 20 right08:22
lotuspsychjeyou can test servers for newer features on them of course, the users choice08:22
lotuspsychjeigeni: upgrades always jump to the next number first, 19.04==>19.10==>20.04 etc08:22
igenii made this mistake once and didnt pat attention some of my servers where on a very very old ubuntu, noi08:22
igeniwont happen again haha08:23
igenik i will jump to 20 now then, so i dont make that mistake again08:23
lotuspsychjedepending on what the users wants, we advice the LTS way08:23
igeniits a web server08:23
lotuspsychjeigeni: 20.04 is not out yet, only the development version atm08:24
igenimm ok so i should wait for it to be final, i cant downgrade to 18.04 right08:24
lotuspsychjeigeni: ideally you would clean install 18.04 indeed, and wait for the next LTS 20.04 when its out08:25
igeniclean install woudl suck , already fully made it production ready, igues i can safely wait on 20 to be final and then upgrade it08:26
igenii gues that will happen within 9 months08:26
lotuspsychjeigeni: your systems, your choice08:27
igeniapril 2020 i read here08:27
lotuspsychjeigeni: jumping to 20.04 in april is also not really the LTS way, since 18.04 will jump to 20.04.1 when its out soemwhere in july08:28
lotuspsychjefor servers, more stability and more bugs sorted etc08:28

tomreynCryptoManiac: which ubuntu version are you running there?13:11
tomreynThere's no supported Ubuntu version which still provides php 5.* packages, so this must be veeery old or using 3rd party packages, or both. i doubt anyone is able to maintain 5.x packages with all security patches.13:12
tomreynubuntu 18.04 and later should use libcurl4, only 16.04 should use libcurl313:15

TaggnostrI have an external usb ntfs drive and I'm using ntfs-3g and want to be able to have characters such as ':' in the filenames.  AFAIU ntfs-3g already allows this unless the windows_names option is passed, but if I do `mount | grep sdd` it says 'type fuseblk' and lists a few options that don't include windows_names, but I'm still unable to use ':' in the filenames16:34
Taggnostrthe drive is mounted automatically when I plug it in, so I'm not sure where to look to see if windows_names is being passed and how to prevent it, do you know how to verify/change that?16:35
ioriaTaggnostr, just run 'mount'16:48
Taggnostrioria, if I run mount it says it's using fuseblk and windows_names doesn't appear in the list of options, even though it appears to be used16:48
ioriaTaggnostr, just run 'mount'16:49

johnjayi thought there were 4. i can switch between them at least with ctrl-alt-up arrow though16:55
Taggnostrioria, that worked, thanks!16:59
Taggnostrioria, is there any way I can set it as default behavior?16:59
ioriaTaggnostr, maybe disable automount for that device ...17:00
TaggnostrI was thinking about changing the default automount settings if that's possible17:01

=== doug16k_ is now known as doug16k
TaggnostrI mean, I want it to be automounted, but with the default options used by a plain mount, since apparently when it gets automounted there are some extra options specified that prevent me to copy files that contain ':' or other characters17:04
ioriaTaggnostr, yes, it works but disables 'all' the automounts17:04
ioriaTaggnostr, ah, i see17:05

Mr_Pankd4wov-2> uhmmm.... lubuntu only    ram  ?17:52
kd4wov-2512 Meg of ram17:53
doug16kthe minimum requirements say 128MB https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu17:55
doug16kyou're a bit ahead of the absolute minimum cpu too17:56
tomreynthis is likely to be outdated.17:56
kd4wov-2OK I will look at it. I have several p3 and p4 machines running xp that I am considering moving to Linux.17:58
doug16kah right, it suggests going to https://lubuntu.me/17:58
kd4wov-2these are the last windows machines except 2 win98 machines with a p 233 mhz.17:58
tomreynthe problem with pentium 3 is the hardware is insecure, does not receive security support from intel anymore.17:59
kd4wov-2these will become dos machines17:59
ioriakd4wov-2, p4 is ok, p3 i don't think so18:00
tomreynhave you considered replacing ten of those by a single current computer, saving a lot of power alng the way?18:00
kd4wov-2tomreyn does the security update come from the OS?18:00
tomreynhardware security updates only come from hardware manufacturers.18:01
kd4wov-2as far as replacing them, I run dos programing for Motorola radios. it does not ry18:02
doug16kyour microcode won't have any of the features that accelerate the workarounds, the kernel will be using the pathological workarounds on an already slow cpu18:02
tomreynfirmware (microcode) updates can sometimes be provided by the OS as well, if the hardware manufacturer makes them availble (which is not the case here)18:02
kd4wov-2run on windows18:02
kd4wov-2so what about core2 machines?18:03
ioriakd4wov-2, what about them ?18:05
kd4wov-2my main machine is a p4 3.8 ghz with 4gig ram running ubuntu studio.18:05
kd4wov-2what are your thoughts about core2 machines18:06
ioriakd4wov-2, p4 it's not exactly a dual core18:06
tomreynyou may want to run this on your systems to get a better idea of their CPU problems: https://github.com/speed47/spectre-meltdown-checker18:06
tomreynit's also available in ubuntu (not the latest version)18:07
kd4wov-2no core2 is the machine after p4 and before core2 duo18:07
ioriakd4wov-2, and ?18:07
kd4wov-2OK will look at that.18:08
tomreynyou will find that all of them have unfixed issues, and those will not be solved in the future.18:08
doug16kbetter linux than not linux though on those old cpus. at least linux tries to mitigate the issues18:10
kd4wov-2I understand about the unfixed issues18:10

rockyhm, so i have a usb drive spitting errors ... is there anyway to block the bad sectors or whatever on them? gparted can't even successfully create a parition formatted as ext418:53
karxWhat is the error?18:53
rockygparted said something about bad I/O when trying to create a new parition with ext418:53
kd4wov-2I had a similar problem related to power issues on the USB port.18:54
karxThe drive might be dead. Does it work on another machine?18:54
karxThe port might also be the issue.18:54
rocky"error input/output error during read on dev/sda"18:54
pizzaiolodoes anyone here run ubuntu on a XPS 15?18:55
rockyits actually a 2.5" ssd in a usb-c enclosure ... and the drive started failing when it was setup as an internal drive (out of the enclosure) on an older laptop so now i'm seeing if i can repair it on my new laptop using this usb-c enclosure18:55
kd4wov-2can you check the drive by dropping it in a machine.18:55
rockyit didn't work in the first machine ... but it *seems* like it's localized to particular sectors or whatever the ssd equivalent is18:56
karxrocky: the drive is probable dead. Try a different drive.18:56
tomreynpizzaiolo: no polls please, instead ask the specific question18:56
rockybecause gparted's partitioning works for a while but finally pukes out18:56
pizzaiolotomreyn the specific question would be what said user's experience was18:57
rockykarx: the drive is definitely not *dead* ... i'm trying to figure out if it's recoverable or there's too much dmg18:57
rockyi also figured there was some way to mark sectors (or ssd equiv) as "bad" so they wouldn't interfere18:57
kd4wov-2rocky have you tried to make it a ntfs18:58
rockyext4 and ntfs both18:58
kd4wov-2you may want to try spinright18:58
tomreynpizzaiolo: Dell XPS 15 is a product series with many different models. but this doesn't seem like an ubuntu support question, maybe #ubuntu-offtopic is a better place, or ##linux18:59
rockywhat's spinright? and keep in mind this is a ssd, it doesn't "spin"18:59
rockyoh... "spinrite"19:00
pizzaiolotomreyn alright then19:00
shvmssd's have trim plus they automatically keep bad sectors away AFAIK. Your drive may be failing19:00
rockyshvm: yep, i'm just trying to figure out if its beyond redemption yet is all19:01

rockyi also am in the process of running "badblocks" on it, but i'm not sure marks the blocks as bad or merely identifies the bad blocks19:03
rockyman page doesn't seem clear on that point19:03
tomreynrocky: check the 'smart' data for the drive, don't waste your time on 'badblocks', just replace the disk if it's physically defective.19:04
rockywell i'm already running badblocks so i don't want to interfere19:04
rockybut i'll do as you suggested as soon as badblocks is done19:04
gehnanyone know if and or when Ubuntu will move to a more up to date gcc?19:05
tomreynrocky: note that not all disks sold in an usb enclosure can just be connected to a computer directly (some not at all, some only after modifications)19:05
tomreyngehn: when it is released.19:05
ledenrocky, try 'photorec' to recover data and try to format after and see how is going that way19:06
rockytomreyn: this disk wasn't sold in the enclosure ... it was a 2.5" ssd inside an old dell computer and the drive seemed to be having trouble so i bought a usb-c enclosure to test it out on another machine19:06
gehntomreyn, when what is released?19:06
ioriagehn, if you want 9.2, just install eoan19:06
rockyleden: i don't need to recover anything, i just need to see if the drive will work after a bit of maintenance19:06
tomreynrocky: if you don't have complete backups and need to resort to ddrescue then don't run recovery tools against the original storage but create an image with ddrecue first and then use recovery tools agains thtis image.19:07

robroseknows@tomreyn: Here's the journal output from recovery mode: http://termbin.com/u74p21:32
tomreyni suspect you must be using some PPA, since the "ubuntu-drivers autoinstall" command would only install packages which are available in ubuntu21:33
robroseknowsI might be, I've installed stuff from ppa in the past.21:33
robroseknowsI think autoinstall might have said something about a PPA too.21:34
tomreynyou seem to have the very first bios version installed fthat's available for this board, should clearly do an upgrade21:34
robroseknowsDo you think that's the issue? I'd rather get to a working state before doing any upgrades.21:35
tomreyncan you run:   dpkg -l nvidia\* | nc termbin.com 999921:35
tomreynthe bios wont be the root cause, no, it's just somethign i noticed looking at the log.21:36
tomreynrobroseknows: apt policy nvidia-dkms-440 | nc termbin.com 999921:38
tomreynalso, i can probably find it on your log, but if you can tell which graphics card this is it might be easier21:39
robroseknows@tomreyn: http://termbin.com/hzij 1080Ti EVGA I think, don't remember the model number21:39
tomreynrobroseknows: so you're using the graphics-drivers PPA, that's where your nvidia driver is from21:45
robroseknowsYeah. I think when I started with all this though, I had an earlier driver version. I've purged nvidia a couple times now.21:46
tomreynyou'll keep installing the driver form the PPa as long as you don't disable the PPA21:47
tomreynyou'll keep installing the driver from the PPA as long as you don't disable the PPA21:47
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html21:47
tomreyna better option may actually be to install the LTSE kernel and X, though21:47
ubottuThe Ubuntu LTS enablement stacks provide newer kernel and X support for existing LTS releases, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack21:47
tomreynthat#s because you're on a somewhat recent AMD Zen system21:48
robroseknowsI think the issue might be with X, so that might be a good call.21:48
robroseknows@tomreyn Installing the LTSE kernel and X didn't fix it sadly. Booted into it and still got a blank screen. Should I try the PPA purge now?21:55

Surkow|laptopI'm proficient in using virtual terminals and I rely on them whenever my computer locks up in some way or another.22:00
Surkow|laptopmaybe it's the external keyboard I'm using22:00
Surkow|laptop(on a laptop)22:00
robroseknowstomreyn: Yep, tried WaylandEnable=false22:01
tomreynSurkow|laptop: maybe you need to press some extra modifier key or disable a lock key22:01
Surkow|laptophmm, it does appear to work on the laptop itself. I needed it after a recursive search in nautilus was accidentally triggered on a smb share. It resulted in the whole system locking up.22:02
Surkow|laptopthanks for the info at least :)22:02
tomreynrobroseknows: i'm a bit puzzled by the repeated "EDAC amd64: Node 0: DRAM ECC disabled." messages, i think this very message should only be printed once. there were some acpi warnings, but nothing serious from what i can tell, and the rest of the 4.15 kernel boot log looked ok to me. upgrading the firmware still seems like something worth trying.22:03
tomreynSurkow|laptop: you're welcome. i'm not sure i can suggest anything to make your external keyboard work for switching tty's then.22:05
AavarHow can I show icons on the desktop in unity? I know this is not the right place to ask... Maybe you know where I can go to find an answer?22:07
robroseknowstomreyn I have two RAM sticks? could that be why it's showing twice?22:08
robroseknowsAYYY! Removing the nvidia drivers altogether worked! I got a login screen!22:15
robroseknowsfuck but installing the older drivers with ubuntu-drivers autoinstall didn't work22:19
robroseknowsthat broke it again.22:20
robroseknowsso I guess I just have to deal with no nvidia drivers for now?22:20
robroseknowsmeans I can't play games at all which blows but w/e22:20
Surkow|laptoptomreyn, maybe it's just pebcak. Thanks for listening anyways.22:22
kedenSo I'm using pgp2 on a remote dev box running with Ubuntu 18.04 for manually encrypting files, and I'd like to not have to enter my password everytime I use it.22:25
tomreynpgp2, are you sure?22:25
kedenI've read that I can set a cache to save the password with GPG, but I'm not sure if it would be recommended to set it to a long time.22:26
kedentomreyn: gpg2 sorry22:26
kedenThat's a pretty secure box with password auth disabled and SSH root access disabled too.22:27
tomreynoh okay, gnupg 2.x22:27
kedenWould there be any good reason not to set the cache to say a month or even more?22:28
kedentomreyn: yes, that's right22:28
tomreyna month? this is about as good as not having password encrypted keys22:28
oerheksthere are downsides to that.. i would limit it to the session,  https://askubuntu.com/questions/511300/dont-remember-pgp-passphrase-until-end-of-session22:29
kedenIn my view the password is an ultimate security if my private key get leaked somehow, but fairly useless on my machines. Is that terrible thinking?22:30
oerhekssimple: how many achives do you create22:30
kedenI use it at least once a day.22:30
kedenI could limit it to the session, but that's a very long time as I run everything in tmux, then just SSH into the box and attach the running session.22:31
robroseknowsAlright, I got it working with the 430 drivers. Those seem to be working fine.22:33
kedenoerheks: Just looked at the link you shared. I don't think there is the Gnome Keyring on Ubuntu server? I use keychain for my SSH passphrase, but I think that's only for SSH.22:34
tomreynkeden: maybe bring it up in #gnupg, they may have other suggestions. what strikes me as wrong there is that you keep the secret key on a remote system and handle the encryption there remotely, too. IMO signing should always take place as close to yourself as possible, and secret keys should only be  made available to the system you're physically working on, where possible.22:35
tomreynrobroseknows: so maybe just remove the PPA then22:36
kedentomreyn: I see your point indeed. Alright, I'll check in #gnupg thank you.22:37
robroseknowstomreyn: actually according to the details menu I'm not using nvidia graphics, just the llvmpipe graphics. Still have more experimenting to do I guess.22:38
tomreynyes, looks like it, rob ;)22:39
Phruissome how gnome enable debug info on the window22:45
Phruishow can i disable it22:45
oerheksif that 'window' is a browser, sure that debug list has a close button22:48
jymmmmAny suggestions for ripping DVD's under linux?23:05
SpeConhello all, is there anyone who can help me because i can't find any solution online. I just tried to install an AAPG ( America's army server) on my ubuntu vps. Installation went fine but the server isn't popping up in the game server list because ( i think ) there is a problem with ports binding. As far as i can see in the log files. Eventually i have set the correct rules into the firewall to accept tcp and UDP on the specific ports23:07
SpeConbut nothing helps23:07
SpeConso i actually need somebody who has the knowledge about firewall rules ;) maybe that resolves my problems23:08
SpeConmy server is running ubuntu 18.0423:08
oerheksAA is abandonware, still the wiki might give a clue; did you install the patch? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AmericasArmy23:10
SpeConerm no idea what you talking about but i check the link23:11
SpeConi just saw a message from october 2018 that aapg linux server would be available :s i had an own windows server to run aapg on but to expensive23:12
SpeConso i tried it today on my ubuntu linux server wich is a VPS23:12
SpeConso its not available for linux right ? as far as i can read on that article23:13
oerheksit stopped at AA 2.5 iirc23:13
SpeConnovember 14 201823:14
SpeConcheck this post ?23:14
SpeConeverything works accept that i get an error for the port shit23:14
SpeConi opened the ports in my firewall but i still get errors23:15
oerhekscan you pastebin those errors?23:18

SpeConokay hold on23:18
SpeConi will show you the error23:18
SpeConi think that aapg as a game isn't supported anymore to play on a linux machine. But running a server should be available now since october 201823:20
SpeCon2019-11-09 23:02:19.164134|ERROR   |VirtualServer |  1| bind failed on
SpeConcheck this into the log23:21
SpeConsome ports need to be opened otherwise the server will not pop into the list of game servers into the game23:21
oerheksyes, line 37:  teamspeak server23:23
woenxHello. I would like some advice. Do you know any way to show the pictures in the folder icon in Ubuntu?23:23
woenxLike windows does23:23
woenxItś for a relative, she manages a quite large picture library, and having a little preview of the pictures inside is very useful23:24
SpeConi thinks i see the failure23:26
SpeConwhen i type netstat -atu23:26
SpeConi can see the ports who are listening23:26
SpeConthe ports for this game server aren't listening23:26

oerhekswoenx, if that collection is on a network drive, such data transfer can be huge23:27
bpromptwoenx:   that'd depend on the file manager in use, some do "preview" some have a "preview pane", some may show a quick thumbnail of the folder, some do not, a better solution will be something like PICASA or Gwenview23:27
oerheksbt you can, set the preview option to All Files.23:27
woenxIt's on a network drive, but in a cabled gigabit connection23:27
woenxOh, no no, no the picture thumbnail themselves, that already works quite well (and it's fast over the network)23:27
woenxI mean that, before entering a folder, the folder icon shows thumbnails of the pictures inside23:28
woenxYears ago I tried one program that did that, but the downside is that it didn't show all folders until they were "processed", so it was not very responsive23:28
SpeConoerheks ?23:29
bpromptwoenx:  yes, that depends on the file manager though, Windows Explorer in windows64 does that when set to some View with large icons23:29
woenxIt was cover-thumbnailer, but as I said, it was quite slow23:30
woenxyes, exactly, I'd like that23:30
woenxI think Dolphin also does that by default, but I'm not sure23:30
bpromptwoenx:   yeap, it'd be slow for any file manager, since they firstly need to "cache" the thumbnails23:30
woenxI don23:30
woenxI don't mind if it's slow, as long as it's responsive23:30
oerheksSpeCon, on this page i find 2 ports and a range, https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=154546364723:31
woenx(I mean, it's ok if it takes a while to create the thumbnail,a s long as the folder icon is already there. The cover-thumbnailer software doesn't show the folder until the thumbnail is created, and that's a problem23:31
oerheksi have no clue what you need to do to get your sever authenticated..23:31
SpeConoerheks okay  :s23:31
SpeConwill post this logs to the aapg website forum. Maybe the developers can say whats wrong23:32
SpeConi will have to wait then :s23:32
SpeConbut anyhow thanks for responding dude23:32
oerhekshang around, maybe someone else has a clue?23:32
SpeConyeah will stay arround here23:32
bpromptwoenx:   yeap, Dolphin does it, just checked, also Konqueror, which can also do File Managing23:32
SpeConat least not so very long anymore because its almost 1:00 here ;) and need to get up at 7:00 so :p23:33
woenxhttps://technastic.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Dolphin-tree-view.jpeg -- Yes, that is dolphin. I'd love something like that23:33
SpeConnot much sleep this night lol23:33
woenxI don't know how well dolphin integrates with gnome's ubuntu...23:33
woenx(I'll try it now)23:34
bpromptwoenx:   is KDE's default file manager, so it'd need some kde libs, but is just a file manager, I mean, I run kde but not "kwin", and run Dolphin in an LXQT session just fine23:35
woenxI just apt-get'd it, and it just needed 35MB extra23:35
woenxI'm more worried about interferring with the "default" browser23:36
woenx(like, when opening a folder, some programs will open nautilus, other's dolphin... I had problems with that in the past)23:36
bpromptwoenx:  Dolphin doesn't do webbrowsing, just file managing23:36
bpromptwoenx:   KDE's default webbrowser is Rekonq23:36
woenxyes yes, of course, just file manager23:38
woenxbut it happened to me that folders in the Desktop opened by default in dolphin, while others opened in Nautilus23:38
bpromptwoenx:   I think that's a window manager setting though23:39
woenxI'll play a little with it. It seems that Dolphin is a bit more polished than Nautilus in ubuntu (although I quite like Nautilus, it's simple, flexible, and it works)23:40
woenxMmmm, Dolphin does not seem to be able to generate thumbnails for network folders... (Nautilus does)23:52
woenxNevermind, found the option23:54
woenxOk, but for the files themselves, not the folder :/ (So, like Nautilus)23:58
woenxYou have to first mount the remote share in the filesystem23:58
