Christoffer[m] * There! (Sorry, but managed to get in)17:56
Eickmeyer[m]Awesome, Christoffer ! Remember this is support, but you're welcome to chat in the Cafe as much as you want. :)17:59
vertex_sound1Hello to everyone! I'm want to reset audio in Ubuntu 18.04 to default and I'm instructed to do that with this line:  " sudo aptitude --purge reinstall linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils linux-image-`uname -r` linux-ubuntu-modules-`uname -r` libasound2 " . But, Terminal tells me that there is no aptitude command, than I cannot use auto-apt, than after I tried apt-get tels me that it doesn't understands --purge. So, does anyone knows is it21:12
vertex_sound1better to do a --purge without reinstall and after that reinstall or to go with reinstall without --purge, or if there's some other better way to set audio stuff to default?21:12
Eickmeyer[m]vertex_sound1Are you using the backports PPA?21:14
Eickmeyer[m]!ubuntustudio-backports | vertex_sound121:14
ubottuvertex_sound1: The Ubuntu Studio Backports PPA is required for users of Ubuntu Studio to receive LTS support for Ubuntu Studio 18.04, and for #ubuntustudio to support users of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and its flavors using !jack. For more info, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/BackportsPPA, !ubuntustudio-controls, and !ubuntustudio-installer21:15
vertex_sound1Ok Eickmeyer and ubottu. I'll check that. Thank you!21:16
Eickmeyer[m]vertex_sound1: Obviously you don't have that added. Without that PPA, 18.04 ended life a year ago.21:17
vertex_sound1Unfortunately I am tied up just for 18.04 because of radeon graphics support ( or 16.04 ) in RadeonProRender.21:18
vertex_sound1I've messed up audio experimenting with pulseaudio, QjackCtrl, alsa in between , in attempt to get midi and audio together in Ardur. Now there's no sound at all, or audio devices on screen.21:23
Eickmeyer[m]vertex_sound1: radeon graphics is in the kernel, unless you have a very specific reason to have the PRO driver, you don't need it.21:31
Eickmeyer[m]What I'm saying is that unless you add that PPA, we cannot give you support. You need the ubuntustudio-controls in that PPA.21:33
Eickmeyer[m]vertex_sound1: ^21:33
Eickmeyer[m]vertex_sound1: As far as downgrading packages, I don't know why you'd do that. The packages don't store the configs, that's in your ~/.config directory.21:35
vertex_sound1Thank you. I understand. I need to fix that mess I've made first (I belive) in anyway, because I'm messed up probably some modules, and drivers of alsa.21:36
vertex_sound1Radeon provides that ProRender engine that suppose to work great.21:38
vertex_sound1Now it does not at all. It worked on Windows pretty good.21:39
vertex_sound1Radeon gives to Blender render engine radeon prorender RPR.21:40
Eickmeyer[m]Ubuntu is not Windows, and cannot be expected to operate like Winodws. Keep that in mind. As far as fixing your Alsa issue, I don't know, but add that PPA because our support of QJackCtl is depricated.21:42
Eickmeyer[m]QJackCtl itself is not depricated, but our support for it is, if that makes any sense.21:43
vertex_sound1Windows has it's own downs. In Ubuntu I got to learn how to work, which is general problem and couse of this situation. It's more complicated but if one knows what to do than is good. I'm learning now.21:49
vertex_sound1Thank you for support Eickmeyer I read about personal pack and it sounds smart. But first I need to solve this mess I've made.21:52
RJcole45I am in need of assistance. Trying to partition a disk and add Microsoft OS, having trouble doing that. Help please?22:44
RJcole45more specifically, the actual act of partitioning the disk is tripping me out22:44
ubottuDual boot instructions: x86/AMD64: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DualBoot/Windows - Macs: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro https://help.ubuntu.com/community/YabootConfigurationForMacintoshPowerPCsDualBoot22:44
tomreyngenerally, the recommended approach is to install windows first, because it is more picky22:45
tomreynalso consider virtualization since dual-boot is really a wasp nest IMO22:46
RJcole45Gotcha, Yea I kinda went gunho and installed ubuntu, but that was 2 years ago. I'm needing windows now for software reasons.22:46
RJcole45thank you, where can i install that?22:47
tomreynvirtualiozation? on either OS. a commonly used free desktop virtualization is virtualbox, but there are other options22:48
tomreynif you need fast graphics or have only minimal system resources then virtualization is not for you, though.22:49
tomreynfast graphics on the gvirtualized system, that is22:49
RJcole45Ty, no that wont be an issue, but I'll go ahead and try that and report back. Thank you!22:50
tomreynyou're welcome, good luck.22:50
tomreyntake a while to read up on virtualization, it#s a weird concept which one needs to get into first of all.22:51
tomreynbut it makes a lot of sense then ;)22:51
RJcole45I did study linux for a bit in college, and we did virtualization, but I'll study up and see what comes back to me. Thank you for the help (y) '=D22:53
