hdonhi all :) i was almost finished setting up a new USB SSD with gparted/cryptsetup/mkfs.ext4 when i realized i'll probably plug and unplug this a lot and it would be useful if ubuntu would automatically decrypt and mount it the way it does with any other unencrypted USB mass storage device. should i be doing things a special ubuntu way? are there any special considerations?00:28

robertparkerxIs there any reason why ppa.launchpad.net/ondrej/php/ubuntu comic won't update past 7.3.201:21
robertparkerxlatest is 7.3.1201:22
sarnoldrobertparkerx: 'comic' or 'cosmic'? is this just a typo in your sources files?01:25
robertparkerxSorry cosmic01:26
ubottuUbuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) was the 29th release of Ubuntu. Support ended July 18th, 2019. See !eol and https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-security-announce/2019-July/004996.html01:27
sarnoldrobertparkerx: oh! hah. cosmic hit EOL on july 18 2019 and ondrej only supports currently supported releases: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases https://launchpad.net/%7Eondrej/+archive/ubuntu/php/+index?batch=75&memo=225&start=22501:27

KodiakITWhat would be the proper way to go about specifying user access to a static mount in /etc/fstab for ext4? I've tried `allow_other`,`user`, and `setfacl -R -m u:cmk:rw /mnt`, and I still couldn't get rsync to be happy with trying to work with the destination01:29

ubotturobertparkerx: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade01:29
Bashing-om!eol | robertparkerx01:30
ubotturobertparkerx: End-Of-Life is when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop. Make sure to update Ubuntu before it goes EOL so you get updates promptly for newly-discovered security vulnerabilities. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOL and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more info. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades01:30
robertparkerxCool now I'm on 19.0401:48
sarnoldmuch better :)01:48
Bashing-om\o/ robertparkerx01:48
sarnoldnote that 19.04 hits EOL in january; so plan on doing this again in a few weeks to get to 19.1001:49
WaVSo does that mean 18.04 is EOL too? lol01:50
Bashing-omWaV: NOooo ... 18.04 is a LTS release ( 5 years) :)01:51
WaVOk good.01:51
WaVMy laptop has been super super stable since I switched to Ubuntu 2 months ago01:51
WaVI don't want to break it.01:51
sarnoldLTS releases are better choices for people who just want a computer; the other releases are better choices for people who like to fiddle with new things and participate in development01:52
sarnoldand sometimes the same person will have different needs; machines that should be stable run lts, dev machines may run the non-lts releases, and have a test machine with non-lts to keep up with changes, etc01:53
robertparkerxHow could I go ahead and upgrade to 19.10 now from 19.0402:05
robertparkerxRun `do-dist-upgrade` again?02:06
Bashing-omrobertparkerx: Yep - on fully Updated 19.04 install :)02:25
robertparkerxHow do I install The following packages have been kept back:02:27
robertparkerxIt won't allow me to upgrade I think because of this02:27
robertparkerxnevermind sudo apt-get --with-new-pkgs upgrade02:28
sarnoldapt upgrade should do the right thing most of the time02:29
sarnoldbut use do-release-upgrade to migrate between versions02:29
Bashing-omrobertparkerx: ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt full-upgrade ' Pay attention here as there are reasons why the system holds packages back and you are now over-riding the package manager.02:29
linux_dr_arcules(Repost)I used to be much more comfortable setting up networks on linux machines, back before IP-tables that, I believe have come and gone. I'm trying to connect to a device with a fixed IP address on a private ethernet peer-to-peer network and am having no luck. The device is erroneously using a public IP address:, but I am unable to get packets going to it, even when disconnecting from all other networks. Can so02:36
linux_dr_arculesmeone help me figure this out?02:36
=== zbenjamin is now known as Guest37166
=== zbenjamin_ is now known as zbenjamin
linux_dr_arculesnicolam suggested guff which I installed already, but I believe I need to setup the interface with the static IP device first.02:37
sarnoldlinux_dr_arcules: hmm, why'd it get that address? is it connected to the internet and getting that address via dhcp?02:37
linux_dr_arculessarnold: OLD hardware.... I think it may support DHCP as an option, but the factory default is fixed static IP02:38
sarnoldoh this is firmly in *weird* territory then..02:38
faLUCEhello, which utility can I use for displaying myimage.jpg in a window without borders and decorations, that I can easily move with the mouse?02:39
sarnoldlinux_dr_arcules: you can use ip addr add .. to add IP addresses to your linux machine's network card, then ip route add ... to add a route for that IP02:39
linux_dr_arculessarnold: Yep... Especially with that kooky address.02:39
sarnoldlinux_dr_arcules: the manpages are in ip-address and ip-route02:39
sarnoldfaLUCE: I've used qiv for displaying images for many years but no idea on the 'move with the mouse' part02:40
faLUCEsarnold: the problem with qiv is that I can move the window only by pointing with the mouse on the top of it02:42
linux_dr_arculesYes, but I don't want to add any more public IP addresses in private LANs than I need to.  I could for instance set my USB ethernet to with netmask so it's on the subnet, but that hides 256 public IPs from my system02:42
linux_dr_arculesI guess I could setup a 192.0.0.* subnet and only route to it for that one kooky IP address?02:43
linux_dr_arculesso is there an easy way to configure a NIC to talk to one, and only one IP address?02:50
sarnoldlinux_dr_arcules: maybe. on linux it'd be easy enough to ip route add a route for a specific IP address02:54
sarnoldlinux_dr_arcules: but your hardware device may not have iproute2 tools installed, or may not have the older route tool installed, or perhaps user-accessible02:54
linux_dr_arculesI don't care about my device talking to the outside network... only concerned in it talking to me.02:57
CarlFKlinux_dr_arcules: netmak of 31, no gateway02:57
linux_dr_arculesCarlFK: isn't that backwards???02:58
CarlFKmaybe 32. not sure what would happen in that case as the first and list IPs are 'reserved' for stuff like dhcp and I forget what else02:58
CarlFKah, actually 31 is perfect.  you need 1 IP for each end of the wire02:58
CarlFKwhat IP do you want to talk to?02:58
CarlFKyou will have 2 IPs: 64 is 01000000, and 65 0100000103:03
CarlFKnet mask of 31 is ff.ff.ff.fe or 11111111.11111111.11111111.1111111003:04
CarlFKhmm, I am starting to think 3003:06
linux_dr_arculesI guess I should start off by verifying my NIC supports Auto MDI-X? :-|03:08
CarlFK11111100  ... and now I am trying to work out if you can use .64 as that will be the broadcast IP .03:10
CarlFKwhat is causing this question?03:11

fairuzGood day people07:35
fairuzI have some mystery that need to be solved. :)07:36
ryuofairuz: it would help if you were more specific08:49
fairuzThe user I use to access the server has access to use sudo09:21
fairuzbut sometimes, when I do sudo su as that user, and put in the password, it says, password incorrect09:24
fairuzI cannot pinpoint how to trigger this behavior, but it happens quite often09:25
ducassedon't use sudo su, if you want a root shell use sudo -i09:25
fairuzIf I wait sometime, it will allow me to sudo again09:25
fairuzducasse if I understand correctly, one is no-login shell, one is login shell?09:26
ryuofairuz: why are you using sudo to run su? you can achieve the same result from sudo -i -u $USER09:26
fairuzI want to run some commands as root09:28
fairuzducasse Same thing if I use sudo -i09:28
fairuzseems like it only allow one root session or something09:28
fairuzI think I can reproduce it this way. 1) SSH to the server (using key) 2) sudo su and put in password, managed to get into root shell 3) Open another terminal and ssh into the server (using key). 4)sudo su and put in password, got rejected password incorrect09:31
ryuo-i is for starting a shell under another user... though it only allows one session to be in the foreground of any given tty09:31
ryuomultiple sessions can exist in parallel but each would need its own tty.09:32
ryuovia a terminal multiplexer or separate ssh sessions.09:32
ryuofairuz: seriously though. don't mix sudo and su together. each handles passwords differently.09:33
ryuosudo expects the current user's password. su expects the target user's password.09:34
fairuzryuo I always use sudo su before this. Will use sudo -i after this. Thanks09:34
ryuoe.g., under the default mode of operation (root user)09:34
ryuosudo expects your user password.09:35
ryuosu expects the root user's password (if it exists)09:35
fairuzryuo Noted with thanks09:36
fairuzbut I have a confusion09:37
aeplussame here, out of habit: sudo su -09:37
fairuzUsing sudo -i now, I still cannot sudo -i on the second ssh session09:37
fairuzBoth are using different tty (/dev/pts/0 and /dev/pts/1)09:42
ryuofairuz: don't know what to tell you. i've never known sudo to have issues with concurrent sessions.09:50

mmx_in_spaceis it possible to have python 3.5.3 or later but not 3.6 or later on ubuntu 16.04 ?15:43
HundIsn't Python 3.6 the same thing as "Python 3.5.3 or later"? :P15:44
mmx_in_spacei tried to install it and a game server that uses a mod that relies on python 3.5 was working with 3.5.2 but now no longer15:44
ducasseice9: just load gpg-agent, and gpg should handle it automatically15:45
Hundmmx_in_space: You should really talk to them about it. Python 3.5 is superseded by 3.6.15:45
ducasseice9: you also need scdaemon running, iirc. it's been a while since i set this up15:45
mmx_in_spaceHund: will software compiled for 3.5 work with 3.6 ?15:46
ice9ducasse, you mean the pcscd daemon, but what to do with the gpg-agent?15:46
akkmmx_in_space: You can install other pythons (either from a ppa or by compiling) but I strongly recommend that you don't replace the system python, instead install it as an alternate version.15:47
Hundmmx_in_space: It depends on the application and its dependencies I guess.15:47
ducasseice9: just run something like 'eval $(gpg-agent --daemon)'15:47
Hundmmx_in_space: But it should work.15:47
ducasseice9: and i did mean scdaemon, at least it's running here15:48
ice9ducasse, i have no daemon with that name15:48
ducasseice9: it's in the scdaemon package15:50
ducasseice9: then put 'scdaemon-program /usr/lib/gnupg/scdaemon' and 'enable-ssh-support' in $HOME/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf15:51
mmx_in_spaceakk, hund, i installed python 3.5.6 using source code. how can i remove it completely or make my application default use the system python version ?15:52
mmx_in_spacethere was an option to prevent replacing the default python binary file /usr/bin/python but i realized to late15:54
Hundmmx_in_space: The readme should include instructions how to uninstall it as well. Then just reinstall the latest version from your package manager.15:55
akkmmx_in_space: Usually packages that use make have a make uninstall target (+ what Hund said)15:55
mmx_in_spaceakk, Hund, ok thanks a million15:56
akkThough if apt uses python and you replaced the system python, make uninstall might break apt.15:56
akkI don't know if apt uses python for something basic like apt install.15:57
akkI would think that apt install python3 --reinstall would get you what you need from the system python.15:57
akkYou might possibly have some extra files here and there, but they probably wouldn't cause problems.15:58
mmx_in_spaceakk: thanks. i will try a little later today16:02
akkmmx_in_space: You could also (after the reinstall) try make -n uninstall -- -n will tell you what it would do, without actually doing it.16:03
akkThen any directories that have only 3.5.6 in the path, e.g. /usr/lib/python3.5.6, you could remove by hand.16:04
akk(or maybe just move them somewhere else first, so you can restore them if it breaks something)16:04

cariverihelp. how to map all files in <mypath>/keyword* to symlinks in myfolder/mylinks/ ? files and folders alike.16:15
EriC^cariveri: you mean there are files called keyword* and folders called keyword* ?16:30
akkOther than just ln -s <mypath>/keyword* myfolder/mylinks/ ?16:30
EriC^i dont think ln is that smart, could it be16:31
akkI'm probably misunderstanding the question.16:31
EriC^akk: it is that smart, providing a list of the dirs and just a destination works16:32
EriC^cariveri: go with akk 's suggestion of ln -s /mypath/keyword* /myfolder/links16:32
cariverikeyword* is a glob pattern. * being any continuation.16:35
EriC^cariveri: yeah, we know16:35
cariverilets say I got resources/views/{cars,car,car_stand,car_box.txt}  , app/car.md , app/Controllers/CarController.md  and all those I'd like to have accessible at components/car/views/{cars,car,car_stand,car_box.txt} and compontents/car/model/car.md , components/car/Controller/CarController.md .. in other words Id like a secondary access structure moving from MVC pattern to components.16:41
cariverias symlinks.16:42
cariveribut perhaps this isnt the right channel. perhaps I should ask #bash?16:43
EriC^cariveri: it's not really a bash question per say16:43
EriC^cariveri: so you're saying you want the directory tree to be copied as well to the mylinks/ dir?16:43
cariveriEriC^: note, the structure is different. find any Model, View or Controller and make it into one component folder. with or without subdirs of {m,v,c}.16:47
carivericomponent by component that is.16:47
pragmaticenigmacariveri: I'm not understanding how this is an Ubuntu support question. This seems more like a programming question, which should be directed at a different channel16:48
pragmaticenigmacariveri: Data organization is a user choice, and invokes a lot of opinions which doesn't make for a support question. If you want to discuss file organzation, perhaps try asking in #ubuntu-offtopic or #ubuntu-discuss. If you are having issues with an Ubuntu application or system resource, this would be the place to ask for help./16:49
EriC^cariveri: if there aren't too many of them i guess you could do "ln -s  resources/views components/car" and "ln -s app/car.md /components/car/model/car.md" and "ln -s app/controllers components/car"16:52
cariveripragmaticenigma: as said above, Im not sure whether this is the right channel. but I tried to state my case in order to find someone sy :"hey, ubuntu has this map file system programm or alike that does exactely that." do you have any idea where to go to? because I dont.16:53
=== SimonNL is now known as SimonNL_Afk
EriC^cariveri: you'd need to do "mkdir -p components/car/model" first16:54
cariveriEriC^: perhaps we go on in pm ?16:55
EriC^i mean there's not much support going on here right now anyways16:56
EriC^i can recall 20 support tickets similar to this, from a guy wanting to organize his music accordin to genre for his car trip, to a guy asking how to make ubuntu read out everything he highlights cause he's almost blind, all not 'ubuntu support' questions16:57
pragmaticenigma!pm | cariveri17:00
ubottucariveri: Please ask your questions in the channel so that other people can help you, benefit from your questions and answers, and ensure that you're not getting bad advice.17:00
pragmaticenigmacariveri: As I mentioned before, file organization is a user choice. It is unlikely, and I have not seen any, there is a program to do what you describe in an "off-the-shelf" availability.17:01
EriC^i think he wanted something that can let him map stuff, like point this dir to that and the other to etc, kinda nice if it exists not aware of any personally17:03
EriC^i dont think that many people map stuff to other dirs, i guess it could be very beneficial for a project type dir like you have going on17:04
cariveriyes. inspired by vifm I thought perhaps I define a map file someone which I can edit and that automatically creates ymlinks form it. that would have been almost perfect.17:04
EriC^cariveri: you can write a script that will do it for you each time if you want17:05
pragmaticenigmaA person can use hard links for files, which would allow one file to exist on the drive, but be referenced from different locations. You can also use a softlink to have a directory point to another directory. The only application that I have ever seen that does something like that automatically is fslint, which is intended for managing duplicate files17:05
EriC^cariveri: basically just create first off the non-existent dirs in the mylinks/ then "ln -s /what/to/point/to /mylinks/dir/name"17:10
faLUCEhello. How can I view myfile.pdf in a window without decorations and margins?17:12
faLUCEI tried display myfile.pdf (imagemagick)  but it scales the pdf in a weird way17:13
pragmaticenigmafaLUCE: There are no applications that I am aware of that explicately request the window manager not draw borders, with the only exception being imagemagick. Perhaps you need to check your parameters to imagemagick?17:16
cariverifaLUCE: F11 I think changes to presentation mode. perhasp thats what you need after openeing the pdf in a standard viewer.17:17
nopoliticafaLUCE: there are window managers (for example i3), which can be configured to run exact application without borders and decorations :)17:20
akkThere are lots of apps that request no borders. evince, chromium-browser, dclock17:20
cariveriEriC^: thanks a lot so far. Ill keep going. eventhough I need to go now.17:20
EriC^cariveri: no problem, ok17:20
pragmaticenigmaakk: Those do that after being requested to display in that method. Not by default17:20
akkpragmaticenigma: I have definitely never requested that for evince and chromium-browser; I'm always trying to turn the borders back on, but they always seem to turn themselves off again.17:21
EriC^faLUCE: maybe devilspie can help17:21
EriC^!info dveilspie | faLUCE17:22
akkI dislike borderless except for a few apps like dclock.17:22
ubottufaLUCE: Package dveilspie does not exist in eoan17:22

pragmaticenigmaakk: I don't know how you are launching them in that fashion... all the apps you mentioned I've only ever seen open, by default, with their window borders and decorations17:22
akkpragmaticenigma: I'm just running them from the commandline. How do I get evince to show borders? It's definitely hiding them by default.17:23

_UsUrPeR_Hey All. i'm trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 on a Mac Pro 5,1. It requires an EFI boot partition, and I am having a helluva time getting Ubuntu to boot properly. I do not have the original video cards, so rEFInd will not work17:24
akkI don't see anything obvious in the hamburger menu that would offer borders.17:24
liquidgeckaI am having trouble with my newly installed 19.10 dual monitor setup and I am wondering if anybody can reproduce what I am seeing.. I have two UHD monitors (one laptop screen, one external display). I have the external monitor set to be the primary at 100% scale, the laptop display is set to UHD at 150% scale with the second monitor positioned to17:24
liquidgeckathe right,bottom of the primary. When I move the mouse to the edge of the screen the primary display will pan into the secondary display before the mouse finally moves to the secondary. This does not happen if I move the mouse slowly across the edge.17:24
akkchromium does remember if I turn the borders back on, but I can't figure out how to get them with evince.17:25
akkevince has its own titlebar with the iconify, maximize, dismiss buttons that are usually on the windowmanager chrome.17:26
pragmaticenigmaliquidgecka: are you certain the scales are set independently for each screen? that the primary monitor isn't showing a viewport ?17:26
akkpragmaticenigma: Perhaps you have gtk3-nocsd installed? Here's a discussion on how a lot of gtk3 apps disable the windowmanager decorations in ubuntu, though it's a couple years old: https://askubuntu.com/questions/961161/how-do-i-disable-client-side-decoration-globally-in-gnome17:30
pragmaticenigmaakk: I asked earlire, please discontinue the discussion here. Feel free to join #ubuntu-discuss17:31
akkOkay, I'll stop. I thought this channel was for discussing how to solve things that are problems on ubuntu.17:32
EriC^_UsUrPeR_: give this a try, https://heeris.id.au/2014/ubuntu-plus-mac-pure-efi-boot/17:33
liquidgeckapragmaticenigma totally possible.. this was just configured using the display settings panel in the ubuntu configuration tool17:33
EriC^_UsUrPeR_: this seems a newer article, https://medium.com/@mmiglier/ubuntu-installation-on-usb-stick-with-pure-efi-boot-mac-compatible-469ad33645c917:34
pragmaticenigmaliquidgecka: What version of ubuntu? are you using ubuntu tweaks? from what I know, the only supported scaling is 100% and 200%, and requires using the tweak tool to get values in between17:35
_UsUrPeR_EriC^,  thanks!17:35
liquidgeckathis setup worked on 19.04 and prior but since 19.10 it now started panning like this17:36
EriC^_UsUrPeR_: np, let me know if you need any help, i've done it a  few times for folks on here17:36
liquidgeckapragmaticenigma  ahh yes.. that tweak was in the shared home directory between the two installs so it carried over that would make sense17:37
liquidgeckaI forgot I ran that way way back when =)17:37
pragmaticenigmamaybe removing that configuration and readding it will resolve it?17:38
liquidgeckaahh yes good idea let me try that real fast. =)17:39
=== liquidgecka39 is now known as liquidgecka
liquidgeckaokay.. disabling that feature was clearly not a "live" safe operation.. my mouse got stuck in a bounding box that did not include the whole screen =)17:50
pragmaticenigmagood to know17:51
liquidgeckaokay yea.. its hard to debug because I don't have different resolution monitors when scale can't be set in a per monitor basis. It appears now that panning only happens when I move the mouse into the "dead zone" above the second monitor when scaled which is an improvement at least. =)17:54
=== SimonNL_Afk is now known as SimonNL
liquidgeckaeffectively I just need to find a way to prevent the mouse from being allowed into that dead space and I think I can make this workable for now17:55
pragmaticenigmaliquidgecka: It appears you're on to something then. If you have nvidia drivers installed, make sure there isn't something set in there?17:55
liquidgeckathanks for pointing that out pragmaticenigma, I had totally forgotten about that setting!17:55
liquidgeckaI looked through the nvidia settings stuff but didn't see anything that jumped out to me. I remember doing something with dead zones before but I don't remember panning like this. Either way this gives me a good path to hunt down in order to debug/configure a little further =)17:56

SoldierbaneHi Everyone, I am trying to install ubuntu 18.04 alongside Win 10 on a lenovo X1 5th generation. For some reason when I get to the step of installing ubuntu "Install alongside Win 10" is not available as option. I know this is a very broad topic, but I'm hoping someone can help me trouble shoot as I've tried everything I can think of an I'm getting no luck.19:00
pavlosSoldierbane: did you disable fastboot on win10 and then shutdown completely?19:01
SoldierbaneYes. I also shrank the Win 10 partion by 90GB to give space for ubuntu.19:01
Soldierbanealso did powercfg /h off and run a chkdsk.19:02
pavlosSoldierbane: I did a similar install but I had to choose "something else", format that partition as ext4, mount point / and install there19:03
mordofHey all. I've got a rather strange problem happening. I'm on an MSI pe60 6qe (i mention because it has hardware issues sometimes with linux). when i close/open my monitor for example, it has a few seconds of hardware errors/interrupt issues... something strange, then it recovers. anyway,  during one of these - i unplugged my keyboard.   now, *only19:03
mordofthat keyboard* and *only on my machine*, when i hit spacebar it spits out "yhn<space>" and enter spits out "tgb<enter>"19:03
mordofmy keyboard works fine on other computers. it's a planck keyboard - i've tried resettting the firmware. i've rebooted my computer19:03
mordofi'm wondering if there's a keyboard profile/driver/something somewhere in ubuntu that i could reset for my keyboard to see if that'd help19:03
SoldierbanePavlos: That partition being the blank one I created?19:04
pavlosSoldierbane: yes, that 90GB19:04
Soldierbaneok, So created device: /dev/nvme0n1p5 Type: ext4 Mount point: / Size 94372 MB Used: Unkwown When I select that and click install now it says: "The partition table format in use on your disks normally requires you to create a speerate partion for boot loader code. This partition should be marked for use as a "Reserved BIOS boot area" and should be at least 1 MB in size. Note that this is not the same as a partition mounted on /boot. If you do not go19:09
Soldierbaneback to the partitioning menu and correct this error, boot loader installation may fail later, although it may still be possible to install the boot loader to a partition."19:09
texlaWhen filling out the info in network connection should the device catagory be a name or a number19:10
ioriaSoldierbane, did you start the installer in EFI mode ?19:12
SoldierbaneHoly shit ioria you're a genius. System was set to prefer legacy boot.19:19
SoldierbaneChanged it to UEFI only and my install alongside option is there. I feel so stupid right now haha.19:19

faLUCEhello. is there a way to stop pulseaudio and use only alsa?20:36
arvutfaLUCE: yes, you can do that, several distros have guides for this20:37
arvutfaLUCE: note that some proprietary software will require PA though20:37
HundfaLUCE: Uninstall it.20:37
sarnoldfaLUCE: you could try systemctl disable pulseaudio.service ; systemctl stop pulseaudio.service; and see how far you can get from there. quite a lot of programs only support pulse output, but some may still have alsa output choices20:38
HundI don't use ALSA.20:38
sarnoldfaLUCE: if you want to uninstall pulseaudio completely, the equivs package can help you build a dummy package to replace it20:38
faLUCEsarnold: the problem is that is not clear what I really have to use to stpo pulseaudio20:40
faLUCEto stop20:40
faLUCEwhy this is so weird?20:41
HaSHioria, Thanks for the help. I really appreciate it and  Iwoulndt have figured it out on my own. Thanks! :)20:41
sarnoldfaLUCE: pulseaudio -k will kill it, but it's likely going to just be restarted by systemd once it's dead20:42
HaSHNow onto why I can't connect. I hope I don't have to readd all my torrents again :(20:42
sarnoldfaLUCE: I haven't got a clue why it's weird, pulseaudio's worked fine for me for years; it sucked quite a lot back in the 12.04 LTS era, I had to kill it daily, but I haven't had to think about pulse in years20:42
arvutsarnold: wouldn't uninstalling it be the simplest solution?20:43
MyJollyPancakesHello.  Is there an official torrent for the ubuntu-19.10.1-preinstalled-server-arm64+raspi3.img.xz Raspberry Pi image file?20:43
arvutit is after all just a frontend for alsa, no?20:44
sarnoldarvut: no, you have to do something to keep the package management database happy. that's harder than leaving it alone, which works great for most people ;)20:44
arvutguess we deal with that differently in gentoo then20:45
sarnoldarvut: quite a lot of hardware can't do multiple output streams at once; pulse or jack or similar tools are the most reliable way for programs to use a single interface and share the sound card20:45
sarnoldarvut: so depending upon the hardware you've got, either alsa works fine for you or it's miserable20:45
arvutalsamixer has no trouble managing all my soundcards, 4 of them, I use PA though since I need some binary blobs to communicate with the world20:46
arvutthere is no workaround if a proprietary program depends of PA afaik20:47
sarnolddo you have trouble sending output from eg firefox and mpd simultaneously through any of your soundcards?20:50
arvutsarnold: I'm on a different setup, so my results are not comparable, if you're asking me that question20:58
arvutsarnold: I know that quite a few people in other distros have a strict boycott of PA and anything related to its author, I have no such agenda20:59
sarnoldI used to detest pulse20:59
arvutand afaik they run firefox, mpv/vlc with no issues, with just alsa20:59
sarnoldbut these days it works okay20:59
sarnoldalsa worked great for me back before pulse existed, but I always had nice sound cards that could handle multiple audio streams at once no trouble21:00
arvutif ubuntu with systemd requires pa on so many dependency levels, could a replacement init-system be a solution?21:00
arvutor is it the depgraph of each package that gets broken if you remove pa alltogether?21:02
sarnoldsystemd is entirely unrelated here21:03
sarnoldit's that packages that use the pulse apis will have a dependency upon pulse21:04
arvutsarnold: can their deps be changed somehow?21:05
sarnoldarvut: not easily; the equivs package can help you prepare a fake replacement package21:06
arvutwhat do you mean by "fake replacement package"?21:07
Bashing-omdreamon: Status ?21:08
sarnoldarvut: it looks like pulseaudio but it isn't pulse audio21:09
arvutsarnold: so it tricks the depgraph into thinking pa is there but it really isn't?21:09

sarnoldPuercoPope: the most recent changes I spot for ruby or openssl https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/bionic-changes/2019-November/023697.html https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/bionic-changes/2019-November/023559.html21:34
sarnoldPuercoPope: neither one seems likely to give you that error; we haven't received any notices of problems from either of these. try to connect to your service with openssl s_client and see how it looks?21:35
PuercoPopesarnold: when I run openssl s_client it works ok21:44
PuercoPopeej. openssl s_client -connect api.stripe.com:4421:45
PuercoPopeBut when I either use faraday.get or try to open https://stripe.com/docs/security#tls either in Firefox or Chrome I get an error21:46
sarnoldPuercoPope: stripe.com tested with good results two hours ago https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=stripe.com21:51
sarnoldPuercoPope: hmm21:52
Noboru55hello everybody, where can i download ubuntu mate 18.10 ?21:54
Noboru55i don't find ubuntu mate or other flavors 18.10 in any place21:54
ducasseNoboru55: 18.10 is eol21:54
Noboru55ducasse what is eol ? please21:54
ubottuEnd-Of-Life is when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop. Make sure to update Ubuntu before it goes EOL so you get updates promptly for newly-discovered security vulnerabilities. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOL and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more info. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades21:54
Noboru55i see21:55
Noboru55i heard the 18.10 works better for old hardware. so... what can i choose now?21:55
ducasse18.04 or 19.1021:56
Noboru55i am running 18.04.321:56
Noboru5519.10 works slowly21:56
Noboru55thank you21:57
dreamcat4_i am on 19.10 and it's got it's benefits22:33
* jiggawattz is waiting for 20.0422:33
dreamcat4_zfs installer, maybe newer nvidia drivers etc. and definately a newer budgie desktop, newer gnome components (inc. new server for the media keys)22:34
dreamcat4_you can already upgrade to 20.04... it just probably isn't in very good shape yet and subject to a lot more changes22:35
TechnologicalYo anyone every try to use dropbear-initramfs to unlock a LUKS partition over wifi?22:38
TechnologicalAsking before I do this and end up locking myself out22:39
Technologicalhmmm guess not22:45
PuercoPopesarnold: I found out the issue and it was unrelated to ubuntu. Thanks anyway22:46
Mark60hey @here :)  im loking for some help with getting grub to work again. I wanted to upgrade from 19.04 to 19.10 but sadly in this process gurb got currupted. i believe its also a lvm system.... realy appreciate any help i can get <323:04
Stootwhy did I got pinged ?23:05
TechnologicalMark60, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair23:07
Mark60Technological thank you will give this a go :)  hope thta this #999 time will work ^^23:10
EriC^Mark60: what happens when you try to boot currently23:15
Mark60EriC^ it just goes into: grub>23:17
EriC^Mark60: aha, are you in a live usb currently?23:19
Mark60yeah ive booted into a live Ubuntu 19.0423:19
EriC^Mark60: ah great! can you type "sudo parted -ls | nc termbin.com 9999" and paste the link it gives you here?23:21
Mark60what does that do? will this create a remote access or somesort?23:22
EriC^Mark60: no, it'll run the command "sudo parted -ls" (showing the partition table) and netcat it to an online paste site23:23
EriC^it's a one way street, it'll only upload stuff to the site and give a link back23:23
Mark60ah wow thats amazing23:24
EriC^Mark60: can you type "sudo mount /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root /mnt" ?23:25
EriC^Mark60: ok, type "cat /mnt/etc/fstab | nc termbin.com 9999"23:26
EriC^i'm curious as to where /boot is, usually with lvm it's separate but i guess it might be part of the root partition23:26
EriC^Mark60: ok, seems it's part of the root partition23:27
EriC^Mark60: type "ls -lR /mnt/boot | nc termbin.com 9999"23:28
Mark60i gues its good when the boot is in the root partition? sorry for the noob question23:29
EriC^Mark60: doesn't matter really23:31
EriC^Mark60: can you retype the command adding the "R" after -l ?23:32
Mark60EriC^ you mean like this: ls -lR /mnt/boot | nc termbin.com 999923:32
EriC^Mark60: yup23:33
EriC^Mark60: same result, odd23:34
Mark60that was the same command before23:35
Mark60and just then23:35
EriC^Mark60: anyways, try "ls -l /mnt/boot/grub | nc termbin.com 9999"23:35
EriC^i see, weird23:35
Mark60EriC^ https://termbin.com/vbwb23:36
EriC^Mark60: i think there's a typo in your command somewhere23:36
EriC^did you put the /mnt/boot/grub ?23:37
Mark60ls -<capital <i>> /mnt/boot/grub | nc termbin.com 999923:37
EriC^Mark60: oh, it's a small L23:37
Mark60ah ok ups23:38
EriC^no worries23:38
Mark60EriC^ https://termbin.com/6k9c23:38
EriC^Mark60: ah odd, i'd have thought it's missing the grub.cfg file23:39
Mark60oh ok. so thats good news?23:40
EriC^Mark60: usually when efi boots up, it boots the grub efi file, and it uses a variable to find the /boot dir to get it's modules and stuff and loads grub.cfg, usually if that variable or the dir doesnt exist, it'll throw you into a grub rescue> prompt, but you said it's just a grub> so i guess it finds them, so i thought it might be missing the grub.cfg (the nice menu you should get)23:41
EriC^Mark60: anyways, let's try to just do a de-facto reinstall of grub, and see how it goes, and maybe we'll pick up something along the way23:41
Mark60hmm interresting23:42
EriC^Mark60: this is the file that should point to the grub.cfg, let's just take a quick peek at it as well23:42
Mark60ok i just follow your steps XD23:42
EriC^Mark60: type "sudo mount /dev/nvme0n1p1 /mnt/boot/efi"23:42
EriC^(it's on the efi partition)23:43
Mark60ok done the mounting23:43
EriC^Mark60: ok, type "sudo cat /mnt/boot/efi/efi/ubuntu/grub.cfg | nc termbin.com 9999"23:44
Mark60EriC^ https://termbin.com/6sfk823:45
EriC^ah see, it's missing the grub.cfg line23:45
EriC^so that's why it ends up at grub> and no menu23:45
Mark60um okay23:46
EriC^Mark60: anyways let's just chroot and reinstall grub and see if it changes the line on its own23:46
EriC^Mark60: type "for i in /dev /sys /proc; do sudo mount -R $i /mnt$i; done"23:47
Mark60is there a space between $i /mnt$i ?23:49
EriC^Mark60: nope23:49
Mark60it gave me errors: mount point does not exsist23:49
Mark60wait a sec23:49
Mark60nah just thought i had a typo but didnt23:50
TechnologicalDamn this got complicated. I thought boot-repair literally just reinstalls GRUB23:50
EriC^Mark60: try "sudo  grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/mnt/boot/efi"23:51
Mark60EriC^ grub-install: error: /usr/lib/grub/x86_64-efi/modinfo.sh doesn't exist. Please specify --target or --directory.23:54
EriC^Mark60: ah ok, we need to chroot23:56
EriC^Mark60: there has to be either some sort of typo, or missing dir structure in the root fs23:56
Mark60oh damn :/23:57
EriC^Mark60: what exactly did it say earlier when you typed the "for i in ..." command?23:57
Mark60EriC^  /dev/mnt/dev: mount point does not exsist23:58
Mark60 /sys/mnt/sys: mount point does not exsist23:58
EriC^Mark60: ah, there should be a space between $i and /mnt$i23:58
Mark60proc/mnt/proc: mount point does not exsist23:58
EriC^i think you wrote mount $i $i/mnt$i23:59
Mark60ok re-did that command23:59
EriC^all good?23:59
Mark60it dodnt print done but no error23:59
Mark60thats right then?23:59
EriC^yeah all good23:59
EriC^Mark60: type "sudo chroot /mnt"23:59
