Mark60EriC^like this? .... debug ignore_loglevel $vt_handoff ?00:32
EriC^Mark60: yeah exactly00:32
Mark60EriC^  just hit f1000:32
EriC^it should boot up and show exactly what it's doing and stuff00:33
Mark60EriC^ still at the purple screen with no other visualsation00:33

Mark60EriC^ was that !info meant for me?00:35
EriC^Mark60: that's odd00:35
EriC^Mark60: no i was just checking the kernel on 19.10, it's 5.3 which you had in your /boot00:35
dreamonBashing-om, but still no luck with hdmi audio output.00:35
EriC^Mark60: try holding shift as before, then go to advanced > choose the recovery kernel for 5.300:36
Mark60EriC^ so reboot? and then the wierd key combinations?00:37
dreamonBashing-om, any ideas what I can do? I think I set pavucontroll right.00:37
EriC^Mark60: nah the weird key combinations are to reboot safely00:39
Mark60EriC^ Ubunut, with Linux 5,3,0-19-generic or ^ Ubunut, with Linux 5,3,0-19-generic (recovery mode) or ^ Ubunut, with Linux 5,3,0-32-generic00:39
Bashing-omdreamon: One cannot just assume now that the driveris at fault - have you checked your sound settings ? By the way your xcongig looks good to me//00:39
Bashing-om!sound | dreamon00:39
ubottudreamon: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - https://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.00:39
EriC^Mark60: ah interesting, i dunno where it got 5.3.0-32 from00:39
EriC^Mark60: try just the normal kernel with no recovery mode, Ubunut, with Linux 5,3,0-19-generic00:39
EriC^Mark60: ah was that a typo on the last one00:40
EriC^did you mean 5.0.0-32-generic00:40
Mark60error: Unknown TPM error00:40
Mark60ah yey
EriC^oh ok00:40
EriC^Mark60: hmm weird00:40
Mark60my bad00:40
EriC^Mark60: try the recovery mode for 5.3.0-1900:41
Mark60same error00:41
EriC^Mark60: i wonder what it was attempting to boot by default00:41
EriC^Mark60: press 'esc' to go back to the main menu00:41
Mark60ok back there00:41
EriC^Mark60: and press "e" over ubuntu to peak at its menu entry00:41
EriC^Mark60: which kernel is next to linux /boot/vmlinuz00:42
dreamonBashing-om, found that old xconfig file and added it. it works fine.  but not sure all option are right there.00:42
EriC^Mark60: aha, it seems like some bug related to grub https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2/+bug/184889200:43
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1848892 in grub2 (Ubuntu Focal) ""error: Unknown TPM error." after upgrading to grub 2.04" [High,Fix released]00:43
EriC^Mark60: some guy said he was able to work around it by disabling secureboot in his bio00:43
Mark60EriC^ shell i try to disable secureboot?00:44
EriC^Mark60: yeah00:44
EriC^if it's already off, try disabling any TPM option00:44
dreamonBashing-om, hdmi sound option I think they are right. I can choose output to hdmi and play mpv to hdmi .. but no sound. but i will check your hints now..00:45
Bashing-omdreamon: I do not know what might have changed recently, but the file looks sane per my older experience. ( I no longer use a config file, rely on DKMS for all discovery).00:45
EriC^Mark60: as a last resort, it seems downgrading grub to the earlier 2.02 would solve the issue00:45
Mark60EriC^ there is also the option: CLEAR TPM (currently set to [NO])00:45
EriC^Mark60: hmm i dunno about that one, dont press it yet00:46
Mark60ok disabled TPM and booting up again00:46
EriC^Mark60: is secureboot on currently?00:46
Mark60EriC^ no that was off already00:46
EriC^ah ok00:46
Mark60EriC^ same purple screen as before00:47
EriC^Mark60: what happens if you go to advanced then choose ubuntu with linux
Mark60EriC^ error: you need to load the kernel first00:48
EriC^Mark60: aha what about ubuntu with 5.3.0-19? same tpm error stuff?00:48
EriC^seems there's an easier workaround we can try in a min00:49
Mark60EriC^ yeah00:49
EriC^Mark60: ok, press "c" to get the grub> prompt00:49
Mark60ok in grub00:49
EriC^Mark60: type "rmmod tpm"00:49
Mark60EriC^ unknown TPM error00:50

EriC^the rmmod00:52
Mark60error: no such module00:52
EriC^ok good00:52
EriC^i think00:52
EriC^Mark60: press esc to go back to the menu00:52
EriC^then try pressing on ubuntu again00:53
Mark60EriC^ same purple screen00:53
EriC^Mark60: ok let's try 2 stuff, first try to boot an older kernel quickly since we're in grub already, 2nd we can boot the live usb again and try to get grub to use the non-secureboot efi cause it seems people are using that as a fix too00:55
EriC^Mark60: go to advanced > ubuntu with 5.0.0-31-generic, press "e" over it00:56
EriC^then add the line "rmmod tpm" right before the first line that says insmod .........00:56
Mark60EriC^  insmod gzio befor that?00:57
Mark60EriC^ ok inserted00:58
EriC^Mark60: ok, try pressing f1000:59

Mark60EriC^ i should also go 2 bed now. can we plann in arround 11hrs  or so as im completly lost and have no idea what you have done ?01:02

n-iCeHi, what's the most lightweight Ubuntu flavour03:31
sparrOnce a week or so my computer gets into a state where the UI is nonresponsive except I can ctrl+alt+F# to a virtual terminal then back to ctrl+alt+f1 and the screen unlock prompt works normally but then I'm back to the same nonresponsive UI. Is there anything I might try to figure out what's going wrong then?03:31
sparrn-iCe: xubuntu and lubuntu are both pretty light, I wouldn't say either is a clear winner in that comparison03:32
n-iCesparr will work in a 1GB laptop?03:33
lotuspsychje!flavours | n-iCe try one03:33
ubottun-iCe try one: Recognized Ubuntu flavors build on Ubuntu and provide a different user experience out of the box. They are supported both in #ubuntu and in their flavor channel. For a list, see https://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-flavours03:33
n-iCeI'm currently using slitaz03:33
n-iCeBut community is poor03:33
sarnoldsparr: if you've got gnome extensions enabled, try disabling half of theem, see hwhat happens, disable the other half, see what happens, etc.. narrow down to find out which one(s) give trouble03:34
lotuspsychjen-iCe: another idea, is using the minimal option during setup, or choosing xenial based lightweight flavours03:34
martiansoulHi. I don't understand by reading from Wikipedia the difference between monolithic and micro kernel. Can someone please enlighten me on this? Thanks.03:43
sarnoldmartiansoul: a microkernel will use the cpu's memory management unit to run drivers in their process address space03:44
sarnoldmartiansoul: a monolithic kernel runs all drivers in one address space03:44
martiansoulsarnold at what layer is cpu's memory management unit written on?.03:46
martiansoulI mean is it even lower level than kernel?03:46
sparrsarnold: where would I see them?03:46
sarnoldmartiansoul: the enforcement of emmory mappings is performed on the CPU -- see for example the meltdown CPU flaws, where the memory mapping unit protections were being bypassed by improper CPU execution03:47
sarnoldsparr: sorry, I don't know03:47
sparrI think I only had one on, desktop icons, and I've now turned it off03:48
sarnoldmartiansoul: managing the MMU is a core functionality of the kernel in both microkernel and monolithic kernels03:48
martiansoulsarnold okay. But all processes are using memory. Why is there a distinction between their address spaces?.03:50
sarnoldmartiansoul: the process is the fundemental unit of security on most operating systems -- eg your web browser shouldn't be able to just modify the memory of your tax software, and vice versa03:51
=== ben_r_ is now known as ben_r
sarnoldmartiansoul: (of course the ptrace debugging interface changes that calculation a bit, as there's ways for processes to directly modify the memory of other processes)03:51
martiansoulOkay. sarnold essentially it means that it's not a better option to use monolithic kernel, because it uses a single address spaces.03:53
cowpacityi'm trying to find the default network configuration file, i don't think i'm seeing it in /etc/netplan, am i in the wrong place?04:06
sarnoldmartiansoul: I'm not sure it really makes a difference; the microkernels I've seen in use in practice (OS X, WinNT) don't really *do* anything with their microkernelness, and feel like they just pay performance penalty but don't see much security or safety benefits04:31
sarnoldmartiansoul: but SEl4 sure looks neat... dunno.04:32

eraserpencili have two usb cameras from the same manufacturer and i cant find any concrete identifiable properties to write a udev rule for each device. I decided on identify the cameras via the usb ports rather than the device now. I have a script that checks if the ports trigger v4l and then assign the camera to /dev/cam_left or /dev/cam_right etc. etc.05:48
eraserpencilis there a way i can use dmesg to do it automatically when i plug in the cameras? I'd love to not run that script everytime before i launch my application05:48

makaragebbione: driver support is typically better with newer versions. Would you consider doing a release upgrade?10:36
gigirockgebbione, in ubuntu you have additional driver in 'software source'10:36

dostoyevskyI am using 18.04 and my hoster complains that I am running the `Portmapper service (portmap, rpcbind)' port 111... which I think is needed for nfs...  They say it might be used for reflection attacks... but I am not sure how I could improve this :-/11:48

rbasakdostoyevsky: I wouldn't open NFS to the Internet at large. Maybe run it over a VPN instead?11:50
dostoyevskyIt's a kubernetes cluster that requires persistent storage...11:50
graingertgebbione: try a fresh 19.1011:50
dostoyevskyso they all have nfs between them...11:51
gebbionedostoyevsky, only allow nfs access from kubernetes11:51

gebbionedostoyevsky, on the system running the nfs just allow incoming traffic on the nfs port from the k8s machines11:52

gebbionemakara, i ll try to check11:53
graingertgebbione: fresh upgrade is always good11:53
gebbionegraingert, just to clarify ... fresh and upgrade for me are two separate things .. fresh is a new install, upgrade one on top of the other ... what do you mean exactly11:54
graingertgebbione: fresh: delete the partition and install a new os11:54

EriC^Mark60: which laptop/pc model is it btw?12:04
Mark60its  a HP specter x360 15"12:04
Mark60i think its a 2016/7 model12:04
gebbionegraingert, i have a lot of custom software etc and i dont have a structured approach to port all files and configs over to a new install12:04
dostoyevsky> ufw deny from any to any port 111 proto tcp && ufw allow from $IP to any port 111 proto tcp && ufw enable12:04
EriC^Mark60: ok, type "sudo mount /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root /mnt"12:06
gebbionecould someone remind me how to edit the grub configuration, i need to check if some options are enabled possibly causing problems with my monitor setup12:06
graingertgebbione: maybe try a new install on a new HDD?12:06
graingertgebbione: then you can see if it's a problem with your hardware or Ubuntu12:06
Mark60EriC^ ok done12:06
EriC^Mark60: sudo mount /dev/nvme0n1p1 /mnt/boot/efi12:07
gebbionegraingert, i think i just need to check grub config, remember how to edit it?12:07
Mark60EriC^: ok :)12:07
EriC^Mark60: let's see which efi file it's using currently to boot, type "(sudo efibootmgr -v; ls -l /mnt/boot/efi/efi/ubuntu) | nc termbin.com 9999"12:08
Mark60EriC^:  the brackets?12:08
BluesKajHi folks12:08
EriC^Mark60: yup with them as well12:08
Mark60EriC^: https://termbin.com/8rhq12:09
EriC^Mark60: what about "sudo efibootmgr -v | nc termbin.com 9999"12:10
Mark60EriC^:  also said sudo: efibootmgr : command not found12:10
EriC^Mark60: oh, try sudo apt-get install efibootmgr12:10
dostoyevskyI wonder if this is the shortest way to setup a firewall to secure port 111: # ufw deny 111 && ufw allow from $IP && ufw enable12:11
Mark60EriC^: ok installed. shell i run the first command again?12:11
EriC^yeah pleASE12:11
EriC^oops sorry for caps12:11
Mark60EriC^: all good :)  https://termbin.com/g9vu12:11
EriC^Mark60: ok it looks like it's using shimx64.efi which is the secureboot efi12:12
EriC^Mark60: let's try to get it to use grubx64.efi12:12
EriC^Mark60: type "sudo efibootmgr -B -b 0000"12:13
Mark60EriC^: done12:13
EriC^Mark60: type "for i in /dev /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -R $i /mnt$i; done"12:14
makaragebbione: that's pure google12:14
Mark60 EriC^: completed12:14
EriC^Mark60: sudo chroot /mnt12:14
EriC^Mark60: then type "grub-install --no-uefi-secure-boot"12:15
Mark60EriC^: this will not delete all the files i had on the system or?12:16
EriC^Mark60: nah this should just install grub without uefi12:16
EriC^i mean secureboot12:16
Mark60EriC^: /proc/devices: fopen failed: No such file or directory12:16
Mark60instalation finished. no errror reported.12:17
EriC^Mark60: hmm odd, what does "ls /proc" give? dirs or empty?12:17
EriC^Mark60: oh, type "exit"12:17
EriC^then type "sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc"12:17
Mark60EriC^: done12:18
EriC^Mark60: "sudo chroot /mnt"12:18
Mark60EriC^: ok12:18
EriC^Mark60: try "grub-install --no-uefi-secure-boot" again12:18
gebbionemakara, I can gedit /etc/default/grub or also SHIFT and press e at boot, whats the difference?12:19
Mark60EriC^: that looked better12:19
EriC^Mark60: ok, try 'sudo efibootmgr -v | nc termbin.com 9999" again12:19
gebbionei think the nomodeset option might be causing the problem12:19
Mark60EriC^: in chroot?12:19
gebbioneand it is at the end of the grub file12:19
EriC^gebbione: /etc/default/grub is permanent, pressing e is a one time boot temporary12:20
EriC^Mark60: yeah12:20
gebbioneEriC^, thanks12:20
EriC^no problem12:20
gebbioneis it possible something added nomodeset on its own again? i see it disabled in a line above in the file12:20
Mark60EriC^: https://termbin.com/2s1912:20
gebbioneand then enabled again at the bottom12:20
EriC^Mark60: ok great, it's added the grubx64.efi file12:21
EriC^Mark60: i think we might as well run "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" so everything is up to date12:21
Mark60EriC^: update the live usb?12:21
EriC^Mark60: nah it will update the system in the chroot12:21
Mark60EriC^: oh wow thats amazing12:22
EriC^Mark60: ok, let's give it a quick try just to see how it goes, type "exit"12:22
EriC^then reboot and see what happens12:23
Mark60EriC^:  dpkg was interrupted, you must manualy run'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem12:23
Mark60sorry just got that error :/12:23
EriC^Mark60: hmm try sudo dpkg --configure -a12:23
EriC^if it still errors out, try "sudo dpkg --configure -a 2>&1 | nc termbin.com 999912:24
Mark60EriC^: ok no errors :)12:25
EriC^Mark60: ok cool :)12:25
EriC^type "exit" and try rebooting12:25
Mark60EriC^: OMG im in and didnt get an error12:26
EriC^Mark60: great!12:26
Mark60EriC^: anything i have to change now before i use the laptop again?12:27
Mark60thank you so much :)12:27
EriC^Mark60: nah you should be good, just keep in mind in the future if you get the purple screen it might mean grub installed and used the secureboot shimx64.efi again12:27
EriC^so you'd need to boot a live usb and chroot and run grub-install --no-uefi-secure-biit12:28
EriC^Mark60: no problem :)12:28
Mark60EriC^: how did you learn this? that was impressive how you knew what to do :O12:28
EriC^Mark60: lots of experience with uefi/grub + i looked the bug report by googling :)12:29
Mark60EriC^: wow thats impressive. One day i want to know so much as you do12:30
EriC^Mark60: hopefully they will fix this issue soon12:30
Mark60yeah imagine how many others there are with this issue :(12:30
sveinseHmm. Amazingly little traffic here these days... Are IRC falling out of favour?12:40
sveinseAnyways, I'm having problems getting multiple screens on my Lenovo P51 laptop with hybrid graphics on 19.10. X or gnome doesn't even detect my extra screens. Running on nvidia drivers. Nouveau does not help, nor setting BIOS to discrete. This works fine in 18.04. So what are my options? Ditch 19.10 and wait for 20.04 and hope it will be fixed there?12:43
gebbioneok so i just tried to edit grub booting options SHIFT -> enter grub -> press advanced option ... then i press "e" but i cannot edit the options. Any suggestions? this is so weird.12:48
gebbionesounds a little quiter than earlier12:49
gebbioneeveryone gone for lunch ?12:49
makaragebbione: grub is a pain. I had that nomodeset problem once13:11
guivercsveinse, I'd be tempted to boot a 20.04 'live' system, run a QA-test of it & report the issue if it occurs there.. You maybe required to help run some tests, but a 'live' test doesn't require 20.04 to be installed and is easy to do.  It'll help ensure when 20.04 is released, your hardware is actually fully supported.13:14
gebbionemakara, a pain yes but how is it possible i cannot edit the options for a one off13:15
gebbionei would rather do that than edit permanently the file13:15
guivercgebbione, what do you mean you cannot edit; has it been locked (needs password), or why can't you edit, what do you see?  and which release owns grub?13:16
gebbioneit looks like something has changed the grub file yesterday but left no backup :/13:17
gebbioneguiverc, i enter at boot with SHIFT -> advanced options -> on one of the options if i press "e" then it does nothing13:18
gebbioneif i enter failsave it will not boot even safely because it could not initialise GUI or something13:18
gebbioneguiverc, does my description make sense? I dont know why it wont work :/13:19
guivercI can't recall having <E> do nothing; I would boot a 'live' system & explore your system for issues (fsck it maybe for example).13:19
drogashow can I hide the icons on my desktop13:20
drogaswant it all clean13:20
lotuspsychjedrogas: disable it with dconf-editor13:20
drogasisn't that outdated?13:21
gebbioneguiverc, the strange thing is that indeed the grub file was changed yesterday but i have not done that myself13:21
drogaswhy can't I do it like I would on fedora13:21
guivercdrogas, We don't know your release, your desktop on Ubuntu, let alone fedora.  My guess is you're talking about different desktops, or if the same desktop - different versions of desktop.  Without clear details we cannot fully understand or help13:23
pragmaticenigmadrogas: Fedora is running a newer version of Gnome Desktop, where the Gnome no longer treats the desktop like a folder. I believe a version of Gnome-Desktop with that behavior will be part of the Ubuntu 20.04 release, but I have not seen any notes or articles on the topic.13:24
drogaspragmaticenigma thank you, that's more like it it seems. So until then have to "hack" it or find a way around13:25
pragmaticenigmadrogas: The proposed fix is not a hack. It's a settings change.13:25
drogasI was not aware of it, but seems to require additional install13:25
drogasby default dconfg-editor is not installed it seems. And SE says it is outdated?13:26
lotuspsychjedrogas: org/gnome/desktop/background/show-desktop-icons is active here (on 20.04)13:26
pragmaticenigmadrogas: I'm not aware of what "SE" means... please avoid acronyms as they may not translate to different locales13:27
drogasstack exchange13:27
pragmaticenigmadrogas: I would treat sites like stack exchanges as containing rumors and gossip. Unless someone sites an actual source from the developer of a piece of software, it's not based in fact and is likely someone's personal opinion13:28

johnjbogle1hello. I seem to have deleted my Settings, as in no ability to edit or adjust any kind of settings whatsoever. When I click on the top-right menu bar, in the dropdown it shows the PowerOn/Off icon, but where the Settings icon is supposed to be next to it, it's gone. Even when I press the Super key, and type Settings into the search bar, nothing comes up. This began after I was Removing items off my machine via the Ubuntu Software Store. I thought I14:15
johnjbogle1<johnjbogle1> was being careful not to Remove any item that seemed remotely system-important, but I guess not careful enough. No idea what I could've Removed that would've done this. Any advice please? TIA. -- https://i.imgur.com/vwpQjJ9.png14:15
pragmaticenigmajohnjbogle1: I think the package is "gnome-control-center" which should restore the settings app14:18
johnjbogle1pragmaticenigma: How do I install that?14:20
pragmaticenigmajohnjbogle1: In terminal "sudo apt install gnome-control-center"14:21
johnjbogle1awesome thanks much14:21
johnjbogle1Should I restart for it to take effect?14:22
pragmaticenigmaShouldn't need a restart, but it may take a moment for the search tool to index it14:23
johnjbogle1Ok I got the main functionality back, but the icon still isn't showing in the top-right menu dropdown. It's not a big deal as I can just launch it manually, but would be nice to have again if you know how to restore it?14:25
roryWhat shell does cron use when running a command? bash or sh?14:28
rorybasically can I use bash's &> syntax to redirect cron stdout and stderr to the same file?14:28
rbasakrory: see crontab(5) for details. It uses /bin/sh by default but you can change that by setting SHELL14:31
EriC^rory: yeah you can14:31
EriC^i mean wait 1 sec14:32
EriC^i thought you meant 2>&114:32
EriC^nevermind seems someone answered already14:32
roryI will set SHELL in order to be explicit. Thanks folks.14:32
pragmaticenigmarory: Yes, you can use the same syntax to redirect output for a specific task just like you would in bash14:32
pragmaticenigmano setting changes are required14:33
roryWhile I'm here with some cron experts, I want to have a script run on startup and then again every N minutes... right now I have two duplicate cron entries, one on @reboot and one on */N14:34
roryIs there a better way?14:34
wedrI think I made a boo boo on Ubuntu...14:50
roryWhat's the nature of the boo boo wedr ?14:51
wedrtyping... the answer is too long14:52
wedractually, scratch that, I'm shortening my answer14:53
wedrI wanted to use Python 3.8.0, but I currently have Python 3.6.9.   I ran "sudo apt-get remove python3.6" and then ran "sudo apt-get install python3.8"    so, I'm good right?14:53
wedrOr I ruined my Ubuntu?14:53
pragmaticenigmarory: they have to be two separate entries... the only thing I could think of would be to make a bash script if you don't want to manage more than one large line of options for your task14:55
akkwedr: Not a good idea, but how bad it is depends on whether your version of Ubuntu (which you didn't mention) depends on python3.15:02
akkIf it were me, I'd try reversing those, sudo apt remove python3.8; sudo apt install python3.6; then install 3.8 some other way, like from a PPD or from source.15:03
rorywedr: you can have both afaik15:03
rorywedr: I would recommend, for each Python project, to use a virtualenv, that way you have specific version of Python for each project15:04
pragmaticenigmarory: Not exactly. Many of the built in system utilities run with python, and many of them do not take kindly to version differences15:04
altendkyor pyenv.  just forget your os has python.  then create envs (virtualenv or venv) from those pyenv installed pythons15:04
wedrakk > I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and I'm not sure how much python3 was dependent , rory > I reversed what I did by reinstalling python3.6 and python3 for good measure15:06
wedrFirefox got removed during the removal of python3.615:06
wedrI reinstalled that15:06
wedrOur work uses Python3.815:07
wedrugh, going to have to take my work machine home and then reinstall ubuntu with a live USB todayI guess15:08
altendkywedr: https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv-installer do follow the instructions including reading the wiki re: what system dependencies to install before building your python `pyenv install 3.8.0`15:08
akkthere's no problem having multiple versions of python installed at once; the problem is replacing the system python.15:08
altendkyand i wouldn't think ubuntu would offer a python3.8 package that would break your os if you really like dealing with system packages.  though i can't say i've had great experience getting the various extras working right15:09
akkBut on the other hand, I doubt 18.04 actually uses python3 for any important system programs.15:09
wedrThe system's Firefox was removed when removing python3.615:09
altendkypresumably they would have been uninstalled when python was uninstalled if they needed python15:09
wedra lot of gedit stuffs were touched15:09
wedrwell, visual studio code no longer runs15:10
akkThen evidently you should follow the suggestions that have already been made, restore 3.6 and install 3.8 separately.15:12
wedrI did15:12
wedrAh, VS Code now works15:13
wedrIt's just taking way too long15:13

Part of the chain is to run npm install, and after npm install is finished, run15:37
beepbeep_node_modules/.bin/some-command. Since today, the tool doesn't wait for npm install to finish. So npm install is still running and the tool already executes the next command, which obviously fails, since the previous command hasn't finished running. What could possibly cause this?15:37
EriC^beepbeep_: can you paste the relevant lines in the script?15:38
beepbeep_EriC^, the one part of the script is: "npm install && node_modules/.bin/gulp prod".15:39

VozivHas anyone else run into the issue where the output audio device isn't remembered on next boot? It worked fine for me on 19.04, however 19.10 it keeps resetting back to my monitor speakers rather than my USB interface (Focusrite Scarlett 2i2)18:01
roryVoziv: if you never use your monitor speakers, you could install pavucontrol, run it, go to Configuration tab, and disable the monitor speakers completely.18:05
roryNot really an answer, but might be a solution.18:06
VozivThanks, I don't think I want to disable them completely yet18:09
ncuxoHello everybody18:30
ncuxohow can I get an icon in the application menu after compiling an app?18:30
ncuxoI've done that in the past with moving the $app.desktop file18:31
ncuxobut the app that I've compiled doesn't have such a file18:31
ncuxoso I'm lost18:31
ncuxoshould I make a bash script with soft link?18:32
lordcirth_ncuxo, you write a simple .desktop file18:33

jformanhi all. i'm trying to figure out why a binary i installed via snap (helm) would randomly disappear. am i missing something here in how snaps are used?18:35
lordcirth_jforman, 'disappear' as in the file actually stopped existing, or it stopped being in $PATH?18:45
jformanlordcirth_: seems the latter, the more i dig into this. i use ZSH as my shell. i'm remote right now, and so sshing into the machine and running helm finds file not found. i presume when i get back to the actual console, it will work. i found some solutions which suggest 'source /etc/profile' fixes it. which it does. but i'm still baffled18:45
lordcirth_jforman, could be that zsh sets it's path differently than bash does, and doesn't pick it up18:46
hggdhjforman: snaps should be in /snap/bin (which soft-links to /usr/bin/snap)18:48
hggdhjforman: so, for example, clion is /snap/bin/clion -> /usr/bin/snap18:49
hggdhjforman: what that means: your PATH should have /snap/bin18:49
vezultSo, I'm trying to automate an ubuntu install.18:56
vezultusing 16.0418:56
vezultthe problem is...18:57
vezultnothing I enter at the boot prompt seems to do anything other than send me back to the default cd install screen18:57
vezultI've read through https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/amd64/apbs02.html18:57
vezultI'm familiar with preseeding, and I regularly do it with the standard debian installer18:58
vezultI'm just not sure how to make the install CD let me specify a boot command18:59
vezultany pointers?18:59
jformanhggdh: hmmm i will take a look at that. i wonder if zsh is setting things differently local vs remotely ssh'd in. thanks19:01
jformanhggdh: huh yeah, https://pastebin.com/mEras9en. before/after sourcing /etc/profile (which i found as a solution), at least while remotely sshed in19:03

nt0_and even after uninstalling the package from the base environment i get that stupid trace.  a lot of files in the ~/.miniconda3 directory were altered at the time of that install, so i'm sifting through the scripts to see if i can find the problem19:30
imiin earlier versions of ubuntu there used to be a gksudo command. is there any contemporary alternative for this gksudo command?19:31
EriC^imi: in 18.04 there's gedit admin:///path/to/file19:33
imithat's good :)19:33
EriC^you can always use "sudo -H gedit"19:33
EriC^or for other apps19:33
EriC^the -H sets the HOME variable so your user dir isnt affected by root files and stuff19:34
lordcirth_Every time I do a full-upgrade that touches the kernel, Virtualbox completely breaks until I reboot. Is there any way to solve this other than not doing kernel updates until I'm about to reboot?19:50
sarnoldthat's weird19:54
roryThere's a virtualbox kernel module lordcirth_ - try this19:54
rorysudo dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox-dkms && sudo dpkg-reconfigure virtualbox && sudo modprobe vboxdrv19:54
rory(assuming virtualbox was installed via apt)19:54
lordcirth_rory, thanks. I tried sudo sbin/vboxconfig as it says, and also modprobe, but I will try this19:54
lordcirth_Oh interesting, virtualbox-dkms isn't installed19:55
roryskip that one maybe19:55
roryI think it matters how you installed virtualbox. If you're using virtualbox-dkms it should automatically sort itsself out every time the kernel is upgraded via apt19:56
vezultOK, so this is stupid. You *have* to use f6, and then send backspaces until the default is deleted.19:58
vezulteven though escaping takes you to a boot prompt, it just won't work.19:58
lordcirth_Oh, it looks like I might have had leftover bits from a .deb install of 6.019:58
lordcirth_That would explain a few things19:58

kur1jCan someone tell me why a package isn't installing a file that it supposedly includes?20:28
kur1jwhen I install openvpn it shows "/etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf" it included in the package20:28
kur1jbut when I install it...its not there20:28
rypervenchekur1j: Is this a new install of the package? Or did you just notice the missing file?20:32
kur1jrypervenche: so I screwed up the configuration file that was there previously...and needed to get it again..so I uninstalled the package and reinstalled it20:33
kur1jbut it wasn't there20:33

Did the esm.ubuntu.com servers just disable TLS ciphers that were required for 14.04 ESM updates or did I just mess something up?20:34
kur1jrypervenche:damn thats a hellva trick...20:35
kur1jthat did it...what/when/where/why is it doing that?20:35
rypervenchekur1j: By default, a reinstall or uninstall then reinstall won't overwrite conf files that you have modified or removed. You have to explicitly tell it to if you want that.20:36
kur1jahhh interesting20:36
kur1jmakes sense though20:36
kur1jrypervenche: did you google that or just know? I've never seen that before20:36
agile_prghi all, I put a 3.7 tb hardrive in my linux desktop, what is the easiest way to format it etc...?20:36
rypervenchekur1j: I knew what I was looking for, but forgot the exact syntax. Just Googled "apt reinstall file"20:37
kur1jagile_prg: mkfs.xfs /dev/<device>20:37
OerHekshaakjes, maybe that mirror is in sync? try again in a few minutes?20:38
kur1jrypervenche: ahh I was headed down the --fix-missing flag20:38
kur1jbut that didn't work either20:38
geniikur1j: Sooner or later you just come across that situation on a debian-based linux. Like uninstalling something and reinstalling it because of o messed up config and it keeps behaving the same20:38

EriC^agile_prg: it might be in your file manager20:44

EriC^agile_prg: what does "mount | nc termbin.com 9999" give you?20:45
agile_prgit says I can format it ext420:46
agile_prgshould I just do that?20:46
EriC^do you need to access it for windows too?20:46
EriC^then you can use ext420:47
EriC^ntfs is probably better though in case you ever need to mount it on windows for some reason20:47
agile_prgok, I am formatting it thanks :>20:48
agile_prgI guess I will have to modify something to make it mount on bootup right?20:48
agile_prgok I mounted it :>20:48
OerHeksadd it to fstab?20:51

rfmwedr, falling into the grub CLI makes me think the grub install is messed up somehow, though I don't know why that would cause static noise.  What I would do is reinstall grub from a live CD.
