corshmockI'm getting sound in youtube, but no sound in vlc, or parole media player.  It's a new build of 20.04.  Is there any audio codec or something I need?00:01
sarnoldcorshmock: usually, running pavucontrol is enough to spot the problem00:04
corshmocksarnold: thanks pal.  Everything is pointed to my mg10xu.  Can you think of anything else?00:07
corshmockin pavcontrol I mean00:07
sarnoldcorshmock: if you can't spot something there, then I'm not sure what th e next step is00:08
sarnoldmaybe journalctl output? or ~/.session-errors if you've got that?00:08
corshmockAlready way over my head pal.  No problem, I'll sort something.  Thanks very much.00:10
sarnoldcorshmock: aha; with journalctl, try running journalctl -f in one terminal and try playing audio through vlc, and see if it generates any log messages00:10

SpaceBassHey friends - I'm trying to troubleshoot an LDAP client issue. For some reason, out of the blue, one of my servers can no longer auth against my LDAP server. The verbose output shows a TLS error. But the cert is value and all other clients work fine.01:38
sarnoldSpaceBass: my guess https://usn.ubuntu.com/4377-2/01:40
SpaceBassinteresting... reading now01:40
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1881533 in ca-certificates (Ubuntu Groovy) "Remove expired AddTrust_External_Root.crt because it breaks software" [Critical,Fix committed]01:41
SpaceBassLooks like that applies to older versions01:41
sarnoldoh, that's the -2 variant, sorry01:42
sarnoldSpaceBass: https://usn.ubuntu.com/4377-1/01:42
SpaceBassInteresting! I did a 'sudo update-ca-certificates' and that didn't work... trying a dist-upgrade now01:43
SpaceBassDrat, no joy01:44
SpaceBass> TLS: peer cert untrusted or revoked (0x42)01:45
SpaceBassIf the root CA was revoked, I'd think all my other clients would fail ?01:45
sarnoldthis update was issued because the libraries didn't handle an expired root certificate *and* unexpired root certificate, I think01:46

SpaceBassJust checked... my other working boxes are the exact same release: 18.04.401:50
SpaceBassI can't figure out why this one box is the outlier01:50
sarnoldis it synced on ntp?01:53
SpaceBasssarnold, they use different time servers, but they are synced to the second. I don't think LDAP is time-dependent like Kerberos though01:54
sarnoldSpaceBass: TLS is, though; so long as they are within the same day though, it's probably fine :)01:55
sarnoldSpaceBass: how is your LDAP server's cert authenticated? is it a local CA cert? public CA cert?01:55
SpaceBasssarnold, its valid until November 2021, it's a commercial cert01:57
sarnoldSpaceBass: dang. I liked that idea.01:58
SpaceBassMe too! Was hoping it was a time/date issue... just did an ntpdate on all boxes to be sure01:58
sarnold(my idea was that perhaps you'd added a local CA incorrectly, and it was recently thrown away by the ca-certificates update a few hours ago. oh well.)01:59
SpaceBassTbt I probably should be using a local CA ... but these are commercial certs02:01
tatertotsSpaceBass: can the problem LDAP client ping the server successfully?02:03
SpaceBassYes, by hostname and ip02:03
tatertotsSpaceBass: have you tried leaving the realm/domain and rejoining?02:04
SpaceBasstatertots, it's not AD, its pure LDAP so there's no binding. But I could do an apt purge and start again... its just that this is a pretty long-standing, mature server. I hate to risk braking something else :)02:05
tatertotsSpaceBass: if you had a backup image you could minimize the risk of such a troubleshooting step as apt purge and start again02:07
SpaceBassGood point - I can do an image really quickly. Thanks!02:07
sarnoldand risk finding out that backups are busted too? :)02:07
SpaceBassOne other thought - how can I test that the ldap auth client is actually connecting to the right host? I'm not sure ldapsearch is the same thing, right?02:08
CruftHow to fix: The repository 'repo_here' does not have a Release file. ???02:12
tatertotsSpaceBass: I normally trouble shoot with "dig –t SRV _ldap._tcp.MYDOMAIN.COM" but since you don't have a realm/domain that's AD/LDAP compliant that may not work in your environment02:16
tatertotsSpaceBass: nslookup can be used to..but again you don't have a AD/LDAP compliant realm/domain02:18
Bashing-omCruft: what is the repo you are attempting to access ? A PPA that has no support (think 20.04). Pasting the command and it's result will be informative.02:18

SpaceBasstatertots, I did that with /etc/ldap.conf... going to bite the bullet and do a snapshot then purge / reinstall the LDAP client stuff02:21
tatertotsSpaceBass: lol...good man02:21
Bashing-omCruft: What can you talk to on the net - ' ping -c3' then try as ' ping -c3 ca.archive.ubuntu.com ' .02:24
Cruftping successful on both02:26
tatertotsCruft: is it trying to connect via IPv602:27
Cruftnot possible02:27
oerheksCruft, "<Cruft> the exact repo doesn't matter "  sure it does, maybe it has no candidates for your version, so what repo, and what ubuntu are you on?02:27
sarnoldCruft: try tshark or tcpdump or similar and try to see what URLs apt is checking, and then check those yourself? perhaps you can get a better error message out of curl or wget or similar02:31
Cruftcurl is not installed by ubuntu by default02:32
SpaceBassWell drat... no joy on the purge / re-install02:43
SpaceBassGoing to replace the cert on the server now02:43
Crufti don't think so, is there a way to force ipv4? IPv6 isn't possible on my machine or router02:44
SpaceBassWhat's interesting is that getent pasdwd works fine - shows all LDAP users02:47
tatertotsCruft: if you're purely IPv4...why would you need to "force" IPv4....seems kinda strange don't you agree02:47
tatertotsCruft: or maybe you're less than %100 certain you're in a pure IPv4 environment...that would be the only logical explanation02:47
CruftI mean I've literally never had a problem until a few days ago02:47
Crufti didn't install any application since launch of 20.04 day02:48
Cruftnothing has changed from the user perspective.02:48
tatertotsCruft: and since you're reluctant to share any pastebin or logs or repo details you'll have to kinda just figure it out or maybe restore from a backup from when things were working...or worse case...reinstall02:49
CruftI tried multiple repos already02:49
oerheksif there is no logical explanation for connection issues, reboot your router?02:52
CruftOk, fixed it. Had to manually install the latest ca-cert package while the router was rebooting, clean apt and reinstall dpkg03:03
Cruftalso cleared all other caches03:03
sarnoldjust imagine, if you had pastebinned your errors an hour ago...03:04
Cruftright i mean, god forbid I can keep something as is on an LTS release03:06
sarnoldyou could have if the folks running your mirror had kept their certificate chain up to date :)03:07
Cruftthey should just have an optional torrent list for every package on optional update03:12

deadromlegreffier, how is startx a security issue?10:42
veegeewhy all this snap garbage?10:43

legreffierdeadrom: locked screen ? switch to the framebuffer running startx, Ctrl-C , you're in a shell.10:47
AppAraat[m]oh I haven't even thought about that10:48
AppAraat[m]what's the lightest display manager out there? lightdm?10:48
deadromlegreffier, when X is running and a session is on there will be a terminal, hence a shell. either way you'd need physical access. but: startx; exit10:49
AppAraat[m]I mean, I don't want it to be instant loss in case of physical access. I still want to practice DiD there as much as practically possible.10:51
legreffierdeadrom: no problem. Ctrl+Z then :)10:51
deadromlegreffier, exit would have you logged off10:52
legreffierit's 2020, I'm assuming more than half graphical station are laptop. physical access is no big deal.10:52
legreffierdeadrom: Ctrl+Z won't exit X, then exit is not run, it'll  put X it to background, and let you use the shell.10:53
legreffiertrust me on that, it's not like i didn't study the question.10:54
AppAraat[m]it's fine if I'm logged off, I keep a tmux session running anyway10:55
AppAraat[m]it looks like "startx; exit" does have a (small) window of time in which an attacker can just Ctrl+c though10:56
AppAraat[m]but like... I usually i3-lock my laptop when I'm AFK, so the attacker would have to know my pass. Which means that if he/she can get past the lockscreen, already a shell can be present, without shutting off i3wm and getting to the tty.10:57
deadromlegreffier, ok, technically alright, but if someone has physical access to a laptop, well they can just take it away and mess with passwd.. unless the machine is encrypted10:58
legreffierAppAraat[m]: Ctrl-Alt-F1 switch you to the framebuffer , those key are not "blocked" by your screenlocker.10:58
AppAraat[m]yes, but when they do they're presented with a login prompt.10:59
legreffierdeadrom: as long as it's on (which should be the case as users like to have them in sleep when unused), it's unencrypted.11:00
legreffierAppAraat[m]: yes if you use one. if you started your session with startx... this shell is already logged on.11:00
legreffieryou just need to SIGTERM X (with ctrl-c), or put it to background.11:02
AppAraat[m]the tty which started startx is running i3, so in order to get to the shell of that tty (in case you only did startx without the exit afterwards) you'd have to kill the i3 session, no? Otherwise all ttys require login prompts.11:02

larkfishermanCan anyone help me figure out on what is necessary to install Ubuntu Server (preferably 18.04 LTS) on a server over PXE? I've been searching for tutorials, but some of them are outdated and others are quite confusing to me...11:05

AppAraat[m]legreffier: how would you get to that terminal with i3 still running though? In my case if do startx on tty2, and then if I want to switch to tty2, I get presented with the i3 session running. I'd have to kill it first in order to get to the tty2. If I have a lockscreen on, I can't just issue "Ctrl+c". Lockscreen doesn't get killed by that.11:06
sylariothat works11:06
sylariowait a second11:07
sylarioblkid is saying the main disk is ext4 but it's ext3 in fstab11:07
deadromsylario, shouldn't matter much, the ext4 module handles 3 and 2 as well. but legreffier is right, UUID= needs to be in front11:08
deadromso just put ext4 in fstab11:08
legreffierAppAraat[m]: your i3 session is on another virtual console when you run it (usually 7 or 8th). You just need to go back to the tty2 (Ctrl-Alt-F2).11:09
AppAraat[m]that's not in my case. If I run startx on tty2, then my i3 will appear every time I switch to tty2 (Ctrl+Alt+F2)11:10
legreffierthat's a new behavior I wasn't aware of this11:11

tatertotscatphish: another alternative is to not mount network storage via fstab at all and use a script11:14

AdieHi, I'm using Sublime Text along with an SFTP plugin to do remote server mapping - but when the program tries to upload the files to my Ubuntu server via SFTP, I get an error "Server does not support preserving modification times" - was wondering if anyone had any idea where that might be configured with so little information11:27
larkfishermanOkay, but is there any reliable resource on *how* to set up a PXE server? I have PXE capability on the client machine...11:33

oerhekslarkfisherman, tons of guides out there, https://linuxhint.com/pxe_boot_ubuntu_server/ and http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/netboot/focal/11:36
larkfishermanI know there are tons, most of them are outdated or incomplete, that's why I'm asking here if anyone had any experience with it. I'm able to google just fine, but there are lots of guides with inconsistent information, and it confuses me a lot.11:37
oerheksthis is the one for 18.04, 20.04 would be not different i guess11:38
larkfishermanOkay, I see that this guide is official. I'll follow through and ask if I have any issues. Thank you for your help!11:39

echoSMILEHi, my ubuntu (19.20) some time ago asked me to upgrade for the version 20, but I click on "remind me later", but since then I never got the same question to do the upgrade. How can I do it ?11:55
echoSMILEAnd by the way, I installed the ubuntu from this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Full_Disk_Encryption_Howto_201911:56

echoSMILElarkfisherman: at cli ?11:57
echoSMILElarkfisherman: ok. do you know if that is totally compatible with that FDE guide ?11:59
echoSMILEcompatible AKA will not break anything12:00
BluesKajechoSMILE, full disk endcryption isn't used much by most people. I think you should do more research on upgrading your release with it.12:05
larkfishermanfrom what I see, I cannot be completely sure, but it seems that all this guide does is encrypt data at the disk-level. `do-release-upgrade` works at the filesystem level so everything should be fine.12:06
larkfishermanI am not completely sure so proceed at your own risk :)  or just backup your data and just try it. tinkering is fun.12:07
echoSMILElarkfisherman: right.12:07

trurlany ideas on how to install the recent rspamd on 20.04?12:56
BluesKajtrurl, sudo apt install rspamd12:57
oerheks!info rspamd12:57
ubotturspamd (source: rspamd): Rapid spam filtering system. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.9.4-2build4 (focal), package size 3509 kB, installed size 15843 kB12:57
oerheksafter install, a lot of manual tweaking https://linuxize.com/post/install-and-integrate-rspamd/12:58
leftyfbtrurl: rspamd is available as part of the universe repository. After enabling the universe repository, you can install rspamd like any other package12:58
trurlBluesKaj: ok thanks but i was thinking 2.5 that's why i was asking12:59
leftyfb!latest | trurl12:59
ubottutrurl: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.12:59
oerheksonly in groovy, but focal gets all security backports https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=rspamd13:00
knstnCan you have systemd-networkd running without systemd-resolvd as a resolver?13:02
BluesKajtrurl, what's your real issue?13:02
trurlBluesKaj: there's no package provided by rspamd for focal (yet?) and i was wondering if anybody has solved this. im running rspamd 2.5-156 on bionic and don't want to "downgrade" to 1.913:04
leftyfbtrurl: rspamd is available as part of the universe repository. After enabling the universe repository, you can install rspamd like any other package13:05
oerhekstrurl, i gave you a howto, with the direct download repo setup, must be simular as you used on bionic, no?13:07
trurloerheks: no, there are no packages for focal at this repo13:09
oerheksinteresting ..13:11
BluesKajthink your repos need some editing trurl13:13
leftyfbtrurl: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/FYxr8RPJPW/13:14
leftyfbtrurl: as I've told you twice, you need to enable the universe repository13:15
oerhekshe thinks 1.9 is too old13:15
trurlleftyfb: thank you, but i'm trying to install 2.5 and i was asking if anybody has had this problem before13:16
leftyfbtrurl: that isn't supported at the moment, sorry13:16
oerhekscontact that repo maintainer, nothing we can do13:16
BluesKajhe can think what he wants, but the version he wants is unavailable for his OS for a reason13:17
oerheksfairly they have the time until 20.04.1 releasepoint is out13:17
oerheksmaybe build it from git an option?13:19
hggdhperhaps. rspamd 2.5 is in Groovy only. Focal has the 1.9.413:21
trurli was thinking about it but thats seems beyond the amount of hassle _i_ am willing to go through: https://rspamd.com/downloads.html13:21

NickShadesHello. I am having trouble installing my first LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and php). I've gotten the stack installed, and I am trying to get phpmyadmin running, but the documentation which I have does not seem to align properly17:14
NickShadesI'm having trouble identifying where I have left off, but there might be several steps which I could point out that I am trying to get to if anyone could assist me on this task?17:14
NickShadesI am mostly encountering errors when trying to install phpmyadmin17:15
NickShadessudo apt-get install -y phpmyadmin results in several different outcomes. Sometimes I can get into the purple installation, and others, I cannot17:16
NickShadesbut typically, I encounter the following error: Errors were encountered while processing:17:16
NickShades /tmp/apt-dpkg-install-C1oxwi/35-phpmyadmin_4%3a4.9.5+dfsg1-2_all.deb17:16
NickShadesE: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)17:16
john_rambo Hi, Under VLC I have enabled the local time display by adding "%H:%M:%S" to Marquee display .....but I want the (AM/PM) 12 hrs clock ...How do I do that ?17:21
ioriaNickShades, you got something like this ? https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/gmScpdT9Vs/17:26
rfmjohn_rambo, don't use VLC but those look like date command format specs, use "man date" to list them all. e.g. %I is 12-hour clock hour17:34
john_ramborfm, I just changed it to %I:%M:%S & now I am getting 12hrs clock....Thanks a lot.17:36
akikubuntu 20.04 runs a bit sluggish on lenovo x220 with a hard disk. is there something other than buying a ssd to make it work faster?17:39
NickShadesIs that true, akik, with only this installation, or is this the only installation which you have tried?17:39
akikNickShades: i only have ubuntu 20.04 on this x220 laptop17:39
akiki don't use ubuntu so much any more17:40
NickShadesso my question is, have you tried other installations of linux on this laptop, or is ubuntu 20.04 the only version which you have installed ever?17:40
akikNickShades: not on this laptop17:40
NickShadesthis is the only installation of linux which you have installed on this laptop17:41
akikNickShades: yes17:41
akikNickShades: it ran windows 10 before17:41
quarantinoI was trying to understand something about full disk encryption in fossa. I had my root partition encrypted during installation, but when I go into "disks" in the install, it doesn't show up as encrypted. Why is that?17:42
NickShadesdid you install ubuntu as a fresh installation when windows 10 was also a fresh installation, or had there been additional programs installed onto your windows 10 partition that you had installed before you installed ubuntu 20.04?17:42
akikNickShades: i don't understand your question but i removed all the previous partitions and created new partitions for ubuntu17:43
NickShadesLet me put it this way. when you got your lenovo laptop, was it brand new?17:43
akikNickShades: used one17:44
NickShadesdid you put a fresh installation of windows 10 on it upon receiving it, or did you use it as it was given to you?17:44
akikNickShades: no it was installed on it when i got it17:44
NickShadeshow long between receiving the laptop, or how many uses of the laptop did you have before installing Ubuntu ?17:45
akikNickShades: i fail to see where you're going with this but i removed windows 10 and put ubuntu 20.04 almost immediately17:46
NickShadesTHe reason which I asked was the verbiage which you had used earlier in response to my earlier questions, which indicated that Windows 10 was STILL on the ystem.17:46
NickShadesbut I see that is not the case.17:47
akik20:39 < akik> NickShades: i only have ubuntu 20.04 on this x220 laptop17:47
NickShadesif ubuntu is the only operating system on the laptop, then there is no lack off hard drive efficiency.17:47
NickShadesunfortunately, HDDs are limited by their own efficiency by their own mechanical limitations.17:47
NickShadesyou can sysbench your i/o and possibly track it against other similar users, but without knowing who else has the same laptop running ubuntu, it will be difficult to benchmark against.17:48
akikNickShades: is there some list of services i can disable ?17:49
NickShadesyou can take a look at your installed packages from command line.17:50
NickShadessudo dpkg --get-selections17:50
NickShadesbut I won't know what services you need.17:50
akiki usually disable file indexers because i don't need them17:51
NickShadesakik: Sorry, thats a bit above my pay grade.17:51
NickShadesakik: I'm mostly here for troubleshooting at the moment, and I'm hitting walls myself.17:52
egm1991What kernel module do I need to install to use a double ended USB-A cable between two Ubuntu machines? I just want to do rapid file transfer. I know this isn't recommended.17:57
bindiegm1991: that will fry components18:00
egm1991~bindi@unaffiliated/bindi yes that's why I'm afraid to do it.18:00
sarnoldegm1991: grab an ethernet cable instead18:01
john_ramboUnder VLC is there a way to display the **time elapsed/time remaining** of a video file in fullscreen mode ?18:01
egm1991sarnold Okay.18:02
egm1991I still can't figure out how to @ someone in chat.18:04
bindistart typing their name and press tab to complete it, egm199118:04
sarnoldjust type the first few chars of their nickname and hit 'tab', it'll usually complete it for you18:04
egm1991bindi: test18:04
egm1991What's the max bitrate of an ethernet cable? Like, say you could spend as much as you wanted on one.18:05
virmahaHello. I've a bunch of .avi files and need to convert them to mp4. What would you recommend?18:05
egm1991virmaha: I usually use VLC or OpenShot.18:05
virmahaegm1991 : any command line options?18:06
egm1991virmaha: VLC probably has a shell, but I've never used it.18:06
sarnoldvirmaha: I'd probably look at ffmpeg for that, but I'm not up on video things18:06
egm1991sarnold: takes a while tho18:06
virmahaegm1991 , sarnold got it, thanks18:06
sarnoldegm1991: the fastest you can usually do over nice twisted-pair cable is 10gbps https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethernet_over_twisted_pair -- but you can get up to 400gbps on fibre https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terabit_Ethernet18:09
rfmegm1991, your limit is almost certainly the port, not the cable.  1Gbps is the fastest one sees in consumer gear.   Older gear might just have 100Mbps.  If you're moving big files you'll hit the disk transfer speed before you exhaust a 1G port.18:14
egm1991rfm: That's good enough I guess.18:15
Jordan_Uegm1991: Also, any old cat5e or better will give you gigabit speeds, as long as it's not seriously damaged.18:20
kaiserim having a lot of issues enabling anonymous access for my ftp server18:33
kaiseri personally cant really see anything wrong with this, every guide i search says this is the way to do it18:33
kaiserbut when i try to open my ftp in a browser, it nags for my user and password18:33
kaiseri got it working the other day, i have no idea what i have done differently18:34
sarnoldwhat happens if you connect with an ftp client like ftp or lftp or ncftp?18:36
kaisersarnold: i get "Authentication failed.18:36

kaiseroops sorry for the multi line18:37
kaiserwhen i pasted it just sent without me pressing enter..18:37
kaiserworth noting if i user and valid user and pass i can login fine18:38
leftyfbkaiser: why do you need to allow anonymous ftp access?18:38
sarnoldkaiser: yes, irc is line-oriented, it'll send each line immediately; it's better to use a pastebin service like https://paste.ubuntu.com/ when you're trying to paste more than two lines into irc18:38
kaisersarnold: yes, i know, my bad either way18:40
kaiserleftyfb: because i need some files to be public...?18:40
leftyfbkaiser: host them behind http?18:40
sarnoldit's usually easier and more reliable to stand up a web server18:40
sarnoldbut ftp persists somehow18:40
kaiserim already using a web server for something else18:40
leftyfbkaiser: perfect, then you don't have anything else to do. Just stick the files there18:41
kaiserthen i have to manually touch the ancient CMS im using? no thanks i would rather just learn what im doing wrong with this ftp config18:41
leftyfbkaiser: you can just setup a vhost which has nothing to do with a CMS18:42
kaiserid rather avoid hard coding anything into that page18:42
kaisersetup a vhost?18:42
leftyfbkaiser: ftp is wildly insecure18:42
leftyfb"ancient CMS im using" sounds like you might not be all that interested in security. Nevermind18:43
kaiserits really just a hobbyist machine, the CMS is not inherently insecure, and is a active project18:43
kaiseranyway, is there anything wrong with my ftp config?18:43
kaiseri would greatly appreciate any help, i been banging my head against this for a couple days now18:45
sarnoldthe trouble is I can't recall if the browsers actually prompted for username/password on anon ftp sites or if they expected the user to type in anonymous and email@example.com by hand18:46
sarnoldkaiser: did you allow both ports 20 and 21 in and out of all your firewalls? is this on the other side of a NAT router?18:46
kaisernot that i know of, this is just a VPS18:47
kaisertcp        0      0    *               LISTEN      13190/vsftpd18:47
kaiseryeah port 21 is open18:47
kaiserno sign of port 20.18:47
sarnold20 will come when a client connects18:48
sarnoldhow about iptables -L ? (I think that's right...)18:48
sarnolddoes your cloud provider have anything like security groups or firewalling themselves that you need to manage, to allow connections to and from these ports? since ftp is usually pretty toxic I wouldn't be surprised if it's blocked by default18:49
sarnoldheh nice and short and sweet18:49
kaisersarnold: its actually a default feature on all webservers18:52
kaiserso, i doubt it18:52
sarnoldkaiser: no, it's a terrible protocol all around :) there's a reason why everyone's replaced it with sftp or http basically everywhere except a few holdouts..18:53
kaiserno what?18:54
kaiserevery webserver they rent out comes with ftp by default.18:55

FuraiI can't find a way to tweak that. Can anyone help me or point me into the right search terms for my internet searches?19:15
FuraiPlease highlight/tag me with any tips you might have.19:17
ioriaFurai, you can change the padding in ubuntu.css in #panel section ... but it would be a bit wierd19:17
sarnoldFurai: quite often things can be tweaked with the gnome-tweaks or gnome-tweak-tool package19:18
FuraiHmm, I remember in older releases that I had some option in tweaks for that, maybe an extension. No idea. Anyway, I have checked tweaks before writing here.19:22

undercovertuxwell just make a backup of the file, edit it and see what happens (as long as its no productive machine)19:24
ioriahe says 'icons in top panel for various tray icons have a lot of padding between them'19:24
undercovertuxyou can't do much wrong since there shoud always be a fallback to the gnome one19:25

undercovertuxafter you upgrade?19:31
undercovertuxhum dunno whats going on with snap but at least personal repos get resetted / commented out after an upgrade for stability reasons19:32
undercovertuxthus you have to check and add sources again probably19:32

ioriaGreenfrog, so you downloaded the Appimage ? if so, cd in the directory and chmod +x19:35
ice9how to install19:35
sarnoldGreenfrog: you can do that part with something like: 'chmod 755 path/to/file'19:35
Greenfrogright i understand downloading the appimage but it consists of 5 hyperlinks to what mostly looks like a code page. what do i do with that?19:36

sharpertoolI am on 20.04. I have a GTX 1070 Video card. I've been running Ubuntu for a couple of months just fine.19:40
sharpertoolRecently I wanted to install Cuda to do some ML training, so I went to update drivers. Now I'm running the nvidia-driver-440. I've also tried the nvidia-driver-390.19:40
sharpertoolWhat I'm seeing is that the system is really messed up. Odd things though. For example I use vi for commandline editing (set -o vi). If I try and edit a command line, it's really laggy, and often inserts, deletes the wrong character. I'm not sure how thsi can be related, but that is the only system change I made, and the 'funkiness' started right after.19:40

tomreynalso clarify how the root file system needing fsck is related to (undisclosed) swap issues.21:13
sarnolda pastebin of whatever you're actually seeing would be useful21:15
sudomaketomreyn, noone cares in linux channel anyway. I disclosed it all. VM gives the above error, and says the swap partition needs fsck21:19
sudomakemore I dont know21:19
Greenfrogi'd like to find a folder encryption tool for ubuntu 20.04 but i'm not finding anything that works, any suggestions would be helpful.21:22
sudomakedont worry. I will ask it elsewhere21:23
sarnoldGreenfrog: https://github.com/google/fscrypt21:23
tomreynsudomake: partitions don't need file system checks, file systems do. but swap, while a file system, just needs to be mkswap'd again if this every happened (which i have not yet seen happen). the root file system requring a manual fsck can be solved from !recovery or from a live usb21:23
Greenfrogthank you, i'll check it out now21:23
sudomaketomreyn, you mean I erase the swap and recreate it, and then it should be fine?21:24
sudomake(some say swap isnt needed at all)21:24
tomreynGreenfrog: fscrypt is in ubuntu as a separate package, too (but i'm not sure whether you'd only want later versions maybe)21:24
sarnoldGreenfrog: you can also do zfs dataset encryption, but it's not documented quite as well, and if you're already using zfs then you probably already know about it anyway, heh21:24
sudomakeor if I restart the whole system, do I get it solved perhaps? (as I presume swap is a randomly accessed partition)21:25
tomreynsudomake: the swap should be fine then (but i suspect it already is and you just misinterpreted the message you read). if you'll mkswap then the file system uuid will change, and you may need to update it in configurations referring to it (such as /etc/fstab).21:26
tomreyni'm also still wondering which ubuntu version you're running there21:27
sudomaketomreyn, my problem is the VM's booting into initramfs, and when I type 'exit' I get the fsck line21:28
AWizzArdWhen I brought an SSH connection into the background via  `ssh -fN`  then how can I bringt it to the foreground?21:28
sudomakeshutting off and turning on the VM dont solve it, but havent tried host shutdown yet21:29
tomreynno ubuntu version details, no support from my end.21:30
sudomaketomreyn, I am a debian user. but qemu-kvm is the same for all, and thought this would be a general linux question.21:31
tomreynsudomake: how mayn times have we told you this channel is for ubuntu support only by now?21:32
sudomakesorry I get disconnected periodically, wasnt on purose21:32
sudomakehow many times?21:33
sudomakeI guess you mistake my nick for another21:33
tomreyni believe it was more than 0. but you know now, also the topic states so.21:33
sudomakemore than zero, like that :)21:34
sudomakebesides, I am a ubuntu user, too21:34
tomreynnot the point21:34
sudomakeI know21:34
sudomakethank you anyway for helping21:34
tatertotssudomake: have you rebooted the host ?21:38
sudomaketatertots, I have a thing or two to do, therefore havent done it yet, but I will as soon as I am done21:39
tomreynplease move to an ontopic channel if you'll continue.21:40
sudomakeare we allowed to move to DM from here, or should we completely exit the state borders?21:41
sharpertoolOn a fresh install of Ubuntu -- 20.04 -- what drivers are used? I have an Nvidia graphics card, and it was working *FINE*, but then I went and tried to install some official nvidia drivers, and now my system is giving me some real issues with "keyboard" response. Nothing else changed here, other than installing Cuda and nvidia drivers.22:09

sharpertoolIf I try and vi edit a command line, the cursor jumps to the wrong place, movement keys do not work properly, etc. It is unusable. And it is laggy as heck22:10
sharpertoolI've tried going back to the Nouveau display driver, but then my screen is locked at 640x480... can't live with that22:11
sarnoldsharpertool: probably the nvidia-driver-440 package (and its dependencies) are used if they work for your card22:11
sharpertoolThat is what is currently being used, according to "Additional Drivers"22:12
tomreyn"then I went and tried to install some official nvidia drivers" - how did you do this?22:12
tomreynasking differently: did it involve downloading something from nvidia.com ?22:13
sharpertoolused ubuntu-drivers devices, then 'sudu ubuntu-drivers autoinstall'22:14
tomreynah good that'd be the right approach22:15
sharpertoolOkay,  here is where I probably messed up -- I did download from nvidia, then I did the autoinstall.22:15
tomreynaha :)22:15
sharpertoolso, I might have just downloaded some bogus stuff22:15
sharpertoolso, is there a way to just clear it all out... and start over22:15
sharpertooluninstall all nvidia drivers..22:15
tomreyni'm not enough into those drivers to help, but i agree wthis is probably where i broke.22:15
tomreyni think those drivers you can download from nvidia.com come with manuals, which probably also explain how to uninstall them.22:16
tomreyn'i broke' -> 'it broke' ;)22:17
=== peter-bittner1 is now known as peter-bittner
sarnoldor 'i broke it', depending :)22:20
Greenfrogi installed nvidia drivers via extra drivers and had no problem22:21
Greenfrogbut mayb that was one of my good points ;)22:22
matsamanyeah I've never had a problem doing that, besides that it feels wrong because it is =P22:22
Greenfrogsok with me, it does what i want22:23
sharpertoolI don't know what is going on.. it just seems as if something is interferring with proper operation of my typing.22:24
sharpertoolHm. okay, I just tested something out.22:24
sharpertoolMy situation is that I have a MacPro with 4 monitors, but I do hardware development, so I needed an Ubuntu machine (VM way to slow). I have to install 2 monitors on that (now I have 6), otherwise the main "vnc" session won't be resized. Anyway, I always VNC into it to my main login. I've done this for months.22:26
sharpertoolI just went and typed on the physical terminal, and it works great.. so, not it looks like this is more of a VNC thing, likely caused in some way by the nvidia drivers. So, crap.22:27
sharpertoolIn fact.. that explains one thing, the top command has 'vino-server' as the top command... it's only at 3.5-5% cpu, so not out of whack, but still, something wrong with new drivers22:27

jakobbgHi. I set up zfs on my Azure VM Focal Fossa installation, did a lot of zfs setup, rebooted a few days later, and now the zfs file systems are gone! What might have happened? Both "zpool list" and "zpool info" show "no pools available". Known topic?22:53
sarnoldjakobbg: zpool import? are the block devices that held your filesystem still attached through whatever that mechanism is?22:57
jakobbgsarnold: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/qDXVckN9gz/ The disk is a so-called "Disk" 4TB Standard HDD, "LUN 0". I remember that it was /dev/sdc23:00
sarnoldjakobbg: try sudo zpool import /dev/disk/by-id/23:01
sarnoldjakobbg: sorry23:01
sarnoldjakobbg: try sudo zpool import -d /dev/disk/by-id/23:01
jakobbgWill try that. Seems like device has changed path from /dev/sdc to /dev/sdb (I might have remebered wrong)23:02
sarnoldyeah /dev/sd* paths aren't stable23:03
sarnoldthere's no expectation that they'll have the same names from boot to boot23:03
jakobbgawesome :)23:03
sarnoldyeah :)23:03
sarnoldat least zfs makes it easy to set them up with the handy names from dmesg | grep sd  .. .and then convert to the stable /dev/disk/by-*/ names via a simple zpool import -d23:04
jakobbgsudo zpool import -d /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-14d5346542020202089557918b9c8ec47a556e85027abad5c gives me "no pools available to import"23:06
sarnoldthe -d gives the path to the directory containing the device nodes, not the full path to a device node23:06
sarnoldthis should be enough: sudo zpool import -d /dev/disk/by-id/23:07
noudleis it possible to set the bind address of polipo? i always get "Couldn't establish listening socket: Address already in use"23:07
sarnoldnoudle: use sudo ss -tnlp  to figure out what is currently using that port23:08
noudlethanks. seems like there was a zombie in the background :P23:09
jakobbgsarnold: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/FKq88fgQk7/ I'm at loss :)23:09
sarnoldjakobbg: oooohkay that's funny. I expected that to work.23:09
jakobbgI tried "sudo zpool import -d /dev/disk/by-id/ 17011005963541977624" - that worked!23:10
sarnoldyay :)23:10
sarnoldjakobbg: weird, it went from a scsi- id to a wnn- id23:11
jakobbgbaffles me23:11
jakobbgWhat to put in fstab to ensure it getting back up after new boot? I have not seen that mentioned in the docs.23:11
sarnoldno need to change fstab23:11
sarnoldonce you've imported with the /dev/disk/by-id/ paths, the /etc/zpool.cache should be updated -- or perhaps that happens on zfs export23:12
jakobbgI'd like it to be avail on boot again :)23:12
Ima_Moran_999Looking for a little help getting Oracle JDK installed on Ubuntu and I'm not exactly an expert user.23:13
sarnoldtry zpool export ; zpool import23:13
jakobbgThe export dropped the FS again. Had to do import with full ID once again to get it back.23:16
sarnoldugh. I *really* expected the export to update the cache and then a plain import to work :/23:16
sarnoldwhat's zpool status report? does it use the long name?23:17
jakobbghm. but now a boot kept it online, at least.23:17
jakobbgShould I just keep my fingers crossed? :)23:18
sarnoldgive it a few more reboots if you can :)23:19
sarnoldlets see..23:19
jakobbgright, will do.23:20
jakobbgMuch appreciated, sarnold !23:20
sarnoldjakobbg: you're welcome :) I hope this is the last you have to think of it :)_23:21
Ima_Moran_999I'm trying to install JDK using the instructions here:23:22
Ima_Moran_999but since I'm installing it on a laptop and there's no server, what do I do?23:22
sarnold"and there's no server"?23:23
Ima_Moran_999>Once the file has downloaded, you’ll need to transfer it to your server.23:23
sarnoldah, that's written from the perspective of a company that sells server access :)23:24
Ima_Moran_999So here's the problem. I  just want to run OpenOffice Base. But it wants JRE, so I muddle through command line and it still doesn't work.23:25
sarnoldit also looks like it's in a section about how to use the version from oracle, rather than the version that's packaged in ubuntu -- are you sure you even need to bother with it?23:25
sarnoldheh, okay, so lets take one more step back :) *why* openoffice? that's a pretty stagnant thing.. does it offer you something that libreoffice doesn't?23:25
sarnoldafaik there's no reason to use openoffice any more23:26
Ima_Moran_999"OpenOffice requires a Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task.Please install a JRE and restart OpenOffice."23:26
Ima_Moran_999The database was written in OpenOffice. I don't know if I can open it in LibreOffice, and I have OO installed.23:27
Ima_Moran_999When I try "javac -version" I get "javac 11.0.7" so I think I have Java installed, but JRE is more?23:27
=== disillusion is now known as BunkerBoyTrump
sarnoldIma_Moran_999: sudo apt install default-jre   should do the job23:29
sarnoldIma_Moran_999: but I'd strongly urge you to look into using libreoffice at some point -- make sure you have a backup of your database before trying -- sudo apt install libreoffice23:30
=== BunkerBoyTrump is now known as disillusion
Ima_Moran_999sarnold: "default-jre is already the newest version (2:1.11-68ubuntu1~18.04.1)."23:31
=== disillusion is now known as BunkerBoyTrump
sarnoldIma_Moran_999: good good, then try restarting oo23:32
