daftjackBashing-om:I actually think it removed it when I did the xubuntu-desktop install. Saw it remove a bunch of items and was concerned but figure if it imploded I could recover one way or another.00:00
Bashing-omdaftjack: :D - when exploding we do get to keep all the pieces.00:01
daftjackBashing-om: FYI more problems. You logout of an xfce session and all it does is restarts the WM from what I can tell. Never logs you out. UG00:38
Bashing-omdaftjack: I too run xfce but have never ran into that. What results when shutting down from terminal ?00:40
daftjackBashing-om:xfce3-session-logout just pops up the same dialog for logout, restart, shutdown, suspend. Pressing logout just restarts the session but never logs out.00:42
daftjackIf I outright kill -9 stuff then yep. It logs out. LOL00:42
daftjackNow its really mad. Keeps popping up another dialog about session manager must be in idle state when requesting a shutdown which I didnt I requested a logout. FYI I just installed Ubuntu today so its not like this is an upgrade or a year of junk hanging around.00:45
chris11I have a server running LTS How do I get environmental variables to automatically source when I log in via ssh? I've tried editing .bashrc and .bash_profile, but those aren't automatically sourced.00:47
Bashing-omdaftjack: What about with terminal command ' systemctl poweroff' ? maybe then we can point to some script failing in the GUI.00:47
daftjackYah I can command line force a poweroff. This is entirely something the xfce session or maybe lightdm is doing.00:48
daftjackWhat is the purpose of "Indicator Plugin" on the panel? It has a lot of duplicate items that are their own panel items or repeated in other areas like menus or in the notification plugin.00:49
daftjackIt as if it has its own session management caller.00:49
daftjackUm so if I go into the Indicator Plugin and hide the session management button in it the logout now seems to work. Still testing as might just be coincidence.00:51
daftjackNo joy. Same problem I dont know why it suddenly worked once now doesnt again.00:53
Scriptonauthey all, I edited my /etc/crontab file directly with vim. It's not running my cronjobs. When I do: sudo crontab -e, I get a completely unrelated file (doesn't have the stuff the original crontab file had in it). Any idea why there's that inconsistency there?00:55
Bashing-omdaftjack: Sorry. I just have no ideas:(00:58
daftjackScriptonaut:I presume you made sure you are the user you want to edit as?00:59
sarnoldcrontab -e will edit the *users*'s crontab; probably you were editing /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root or similar00:59
Scriptonautyes, root00:59
ScriptonautI want to edit the system cron00:59
Scriptonautso as root, I did: vim /etc/crontab00:59
Scriptonautadded my jobs (with the user, root, specified)00:59
Scriptonautrestarted cron00:59
Scriptonautnot seeing them in the syslog, jobs I added previously are running though01:00
sarnoldno need to restart cron to pick up a changed crontab01:00
Scriptonautah ok01:00
sarnoldit re-reads and reparses files every single minute. heh.01:00
Scriptonauth wait nevermind I see it now01:01
Scriptonautat least some of them01:01
Scriptonautis there a crontab syntax checker if you're not using crontab -e to edit?01:01
Scriptonautlike a command that will check crontab, cron.d/*, etc01:02
sarnoldI don't believe so, no01:02

daftjackBashing-om:Thanks for the ear and recommends. Running xfce4-sessions-logout now works consistently but it is the same dialog. Very odd. Its like another session manager is overriding. Ill keep poking at it over time. Goofy work around.01:12
chris11what does this do? if command -v pyenv 1>/dev/null 2>&1; then\n  eval "$(pyenv init -)"\nfi It goes in my .bashrc and is for using pyenv when I type pyenv command01:15

antonybill do it now02:35
sarnoldcan you get to a shell to run journalctl or check /var/log/syslog? the installer should log something much more informative02:37
antonybim pretty new to linux02:37
sarnoldbtw you probably don't need a swap partition that large unless you want to use suspend to disk -- I don't know if we support that or not -- but a gigabyte swap file is probably fine02:38

johnjbogle1Hello. I have a 1tb 860 EVO mSATA that is now not being detected, either direct to mainboard via secondary internal bay, &/or via usb external enclosure. I tried via usb enclosure on my laptop and on another ubuntu laptop. Both do not detect it. When I first formatted it (don't remember what filetype) it was installed internally connected to the mainboard in the secondary drive bay, and it was working fine for a while. Not sure what happened or why05:25
johnjbogle1or when it stopped being detected (roughly a few weeks ago). Any help available please? (moderately tech saavy, but still very much a linux novice here, fyi). TIA!05:25
ponyriderjohnjbogle1: when you say 'not being detected', does it show when you type $ sudo blkid05:29
lotuspsychjejohnjbogle1: journalctl -f and plug in your device, pastebin us the output please05:29
johnjbogle1sorry I forget, how do I do the pastebin?05:34
ponyriderjohnjbogle1: cat file | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io05:36
johnjbogle1ponyrider: "cat: file: No such file or directory"05:38
ponyriderjohnjbogle1: sudo blkid | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io05:39
johnjbogle1ponyrider: http://ix.io/1NkT05:40
ponyriderjohnjbogle1: but you have to plug in your drive05:41
johnjbogle1ponyrider: it's plugged in, via usb external enclosure.05:42
ponyriderwell the system is not finding it, so either its not being powered properly or not connected05:44
johnjbogle1Verified, it is connected properly.05:44
ponyriderso its dead :(05:46
johnjbogle1But it's a ssd05:47
johnjbogle1Brand new.05:47
johnjbogle1How is that even possible? I though ssd's are nearly fail-proof?05:48
ponyriderit could be that your usb enclosure is the problem. you can try plugging it in internally again. but yeah, manufacturing error?05:49
johnjbogle1Already have way too many errors and issues with this machine though, (only boots into Ubunutu On Wayland, headphone/mic jack doesn't work, webcam doesn't work, and probably a dozen and a half other issues that I can't remember about right now)... So it's possible I just need to update my bios then do a fresh OS reinstall. Hopefully that should clear things up.05:52
johnjbogle1I was just wondering if I might be able to access my data with some terminal code/commands before then.05:53
ponyriderjohnjbogle1: like i said, plug it in internally to rule out any external enclosure shizz06:02
johnjbogle1Already did/06:02

InteloI did LimitNOFILE=65536  in /etc/systemd/system/some.service. How do I make sure that a) what are current number of files open by this and b) what is the max limit?06:27
doug16kIntelo, you can see the system-wide file limit with: cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max06:31
doug16kit scales with your RAM06:32
OerHeksLimitNOFILE=infinity # makes it set to 65536, = max?06:32
johnjbogle1Logging out. Thanks for the help guys, always appreciated.06:33
Intelodoug16k, that will tell systemwide limit of course. All users combined. But I need the said a) and b) only06:33
doug16kit's typically max 4096 per process isn't it?06:34
doug16kulimit -Hn and ulimit -Sn tell you the per-process "hard" and "soft" limits06:36
doug16khard can only be raised by root, soft limit is the default unless the process increases it06:37
doug16ki.e. a process can setrlimit to raise it up to the hard limit at most06:38
doug16ks/it/the soft limit/06:39
doug16kthe soft limit is what is applied to the process06:41
doug16kIntelo, is that what you mean?06:41
doug16kIntelo, you can use lsof -p some-pid-here to see how many files a particular process has open06:44
Intelodoug16k,  ok ; yes I gues06:44
Intelolsof will list files and not give a count number I think06:45
doug16kIntelo, pipe it to wc -l and subtract one06:46
Intelobtw, I had PIDFile=/tmp/nbk.pid   but there is no pid file despite service is running06:47
Intelodoug16k, lsof -p some-pid-here | wc -l06:47
InteloI wonder about absence of pid file. I think I can't trace the pid then?06:48
doug16kwhere "files" means file descriptors. not necessarily all really files06:48
doug16kmight be eventfds and stuff06:48
Intelodoug16k,  ya but still how to trace my service?06:49

Intelodoug16k,  my node.js app usually get stuck due to too less ulimit06:55
doug16kor, systemctl show your-service-here -p MainPID06:55
Intelodoug16k,  9 is like nothing/ too less06:55
doug16kIntelo, that does sound odd, it probably has more .so files than that open06:57
Intelodoug16k, so why the odd difference?06:58
doug16kIntelo, what does this say: sudo lsof -p 11383 | awk '{print $5}'|grep REG|wc -l06:58
doug16kthose are actually files06:59
doug16knot eventfds and devices etc etc06:59
Intelook. how to know file descriptors?06:59
doug16kjust run: sudo lsof -p 1138306:59
doug16kit will list it all06:59
Inteloshows 807:00
doug16kthe wc -l includes that heading line, which is why I said subtract one earlier07:01
Intelodoug16k,  then if there are no much files + descripters, I wonder why I get EMFILE https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10355501/connect-emfile-error-in-node-js07:01
Intelodoug16k, ya subtraction understood07:01
doug16kunder load though, right? could be a leak in the code that hasn't occurred yet07:01
doug16kspray it with some requests with ab07:02
doug16k(apache bench)07:02
doug16kassuming it is web serving07:02
Inteloits web serving;ya07:03
Intelodoug16k, under load;ya07:03
doug16kyou can synthesize load with ab07:03
Intelomemory taken by it in status is just half a gig07:03
Intelodoug16k, are you sure its about memory or its about sockets/connections being too many?07:04
doug16kmemory? I didn't say it is about memory07:05
doug16kyou can leak file descriptors by not closing them07:05
Intelodoug16k,  file descriptors while writing a file? well I am not writing any file in code. Only piping tee some log.txt in .service file07:06
Intelothe log file is near 4gig but not an issue I think.07:06
doug16kreading or writing07:06
doug16kyou can leak sockets too07:06
Intelodoug16k,  the node.js code is not reading/writing anything to any file07:06
doug16kgenerate some webserver load with something like: generate some load with something like ab -n 500 -c 32 http://something.c0m/something07:07
doug16kthat will download the url 500 times (and discard it) with 32 thread parallelism07:07
doug16kcan do rest endpoint or whatever too. can pass auth headers or whatever, set cookies, etc07:08
Intelok.. btw, how to check sockets open by this service?07:09

TanaPandasorry I keep getting pulled away18:25
pragmaticenigmaTanaPanda: You were encouraged to ask your question in the #vlc forum18:25
TanaPandaI did18:25
TanaPandaand they said its a OS thing not VLC18:26
pragmaticenigmaTanaPanda: kind of important information there. What it sounds like then, VLC is using which ever network connection is being considered the primary connection. So when you plug into the ethernet, Ubuntu will default all traffic to that connection. Without that application having the ability to identify which network device to use, there isn't really a way to override it18:30
pragmaticenigmaTanaPanda: Might be something you could setup with a routing table, but I'm unfamiliar with those types of setups18:31
TanaPandaI have tried starting the stream with wifi off. and it works but as soon as I turn on wifi it stops18:32
pragmaticenigmaTanaPanda: sounds like enabling the wifi, which triggers a network configuration change, causes VLC to think the network connection is down18:35
TanaPandaany thoughts on how to go about fixing this?18:35
TanaPandarouting table?18:35
pragmaticenigmaTanaPanda: playing with the routing tables is frought with issues. Because it isn't application specific, so while you could write a rule stating all traffic destined to IP x.x.x.x uses eth0... it means any application attempting to reach x.x.x.x is all sent to eth0, not just VLC.18:36

johnjayi found the .desktop file for my emacs there. but it's just that and a calc and few gnome apps18:44
pragmaticenigmajohnjay: Then you've discovered why it's there... Ubuntu devs have been testing/proof of concept snaps by moving a set of commonly used applications into snap containers.18:46
mahdi_jahi all18:47
mahdi_jai have a 2 tb hdd and i formated it with 2tb partition ntfs with ubuntu18:47
johnjaycommonly used kind of makes sense.18:47
mahdi_jait work with ubuntu but windows can not detect it and detect a raw hard driver18:47
johnjayi was trying to figure out why there was a separate directory when ~/.local/share/applications exists for this apparently18:48
pragmaticenigmajohnjay: Some of that may have to do with application security permissions. Snaps by default cannot exit their containers18:48
johnjayok. maybe i need to learn more about how the snaps work. i was very confused why right-clicking on the icons doesn't allow you to set launch parameters18:49
pragmaticenigmamahdi_ja: Ubuntu cannot run on an NTFS formatted drive. When Ubuntu installs to it's partition, it would have formatted it to a compatible file system, usually EXT418:49
pragmaticenigmamahdi_ja: Windows does not have the built in capability to read EXT4 formatted volumns18:50

Guest90294Got a question regarding efi. I've read in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI that I should mount ( or at least so I understood ) windows efi partition on /boot/efi however the installtion program does not give me any options to alter efi partition18:57
tomreynGuest90294: the desktop installer (and i think the server installer, too?), when booted in uefi mode, always installs the grub boot loader to the first (u)efi system partition it finds across all disks (with the exception of the installation media, i would think).19:04
tomreynbug 1396379 is related19:04
ubottubug 1396379 in ubiquity (Ubuntu) "installer uses first EFI system partition found even when directed otherwise" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/139637919:04
Guest90294tomreyn: Damn, I just set grub install to sdb .19:06
Guest90294tomreyn: if, let's say efi is on sdb2 I should point grub installation to sdb2?19:07
tomreynGuest90294: i don't think you are supposed to actually mount any file systems there manually, but the guide you linked suggests that you should, during manual partitioning as part of the ubuntu installation, set the intended (U)efi system partition to the /boot/efi mount point19:07
Guest90294tomreyn: yup, and that's not an option.19:07
tomreynm yunderstanding of above bug report is that it does not matter what you choose for a boot loader installation device19:08
=== car_ is now known as car
Guest90294tomreyn: k, thanks for the input.19:08
tomreynyour choice will always be ignored in uefi mode and the installer will simply install copy grub / the grub shim to the first ESP it finds.19:08
tomreynmost firmwares will only use the first ESP they find, so this default behaviour also makes a good amount of sense.19:09

pnwisewell at least you haven't run chown -R www-data:www-data .22:46
pnwisein the wrong terminal, in the root dir of your local while logged as root :D22:46
callipygousI am having difficulties unlocking the screen23:11
callipygoustouch screen seems to not work when the screen is locked23:11
callipygousso how to unlock it without a bluetooth or usb keyboard23:11
callipygousthis is with Unity23:12
callipygousactually, touch screen is working23:13
callipygousbut the OSK isn't23:13
callipygousyeah, and Unity is the best desktop on Linux I've used for touch :/23:14
callipygousKDE and Gnome3...don't go ther23:14
sarnoldit's hard for me to think of how to address it... control+alt+f1 to get a new console requires a keyboard of some sort. sysrq? keyboard. ssh in? well, you've got to have a keyboard somewhere :)23:16
callipygousoh I can get in...provided I have a keyboard with me23:17
callipygouswhich I do23:17
callipygousbut it's not premium solution23:17
tomreyncallipygous: maybe it's time to upgrade (that's in case you're still on 16.04 LTS), gnomes' screen  keyboard does work while the screen is locked.23:43
tomreynit may be a bit more resource hungry, too, though23:44
rfmI have two ubuntu 18.04 systems with hardwired ethernet connected to the same ethernet switch, both running apache2.   if I transfer a big file with wget or curl, if I use the IPv4 addresses, transfer goes at link speed (~100Mbps).  If I use IPv6 addresses, transfer crawls (60Kbps).23:49
rfmSeems only to be between Ubuntu systems.  If I try a download from one of the Ubuntu servers from a Windows system, transfer runs quickly.23:50
rfmscp shows same effect, so it's not something in apache/wget23:56
