deviosI have a Brother MFC-L2700DW Printer/Scanner/Fax that's connected to my wifi network.  Ubuntu found and prints to it over the network no problem, but I can't seem to find any info on how to use the scanner over the network on Ubuntu.  Its http://192.168.x.x/scan/scan.html feature doesn't seem to work in Chrome or Firefox or even in IE or Edge on a Windows machine, so that's useless.00:08
helu_cadevios: for WIndows, there is a Brother scanning app in the Microsoft Store that still works fine with my MFC, different model though.00:11

dengion lubuntu lxde 18.04 how do I add vpn? add vpn connection button is greyed out using plus to add via edit connections also yet to work00:29
sarnolddengi: run "apt-cache search network-manager-" to see a handful of different packages that provide additional functionality for network-manager -- there may be one for whichever VPN you're trying to use00:31
dengiits an open vpn based vpn00:33
sarnolddengi: install network-manager-openvpn and network-manager-openvpn-gnome and see if that works00:35

guiverchiss, you've asked before in multiple rooms01:01
hissNot in this one01:01
hissI though we would have more people able to help me.01:02
sarnoldhiss: you could try running debsums -sa to find overwrittenfiles, then use apt install --reinstall on those packages01:03
sarnoldhiss: maintainer scripts might not necessarily be written with a --reinstall in mind, so it's not something you just want to run on ALL packages, but it sounds like it might be useful to run it on specific packages at the moment01:03
hissCould you guide me please ? I found multiple askubuntu links, i don't want to mess things again.01:05

blogtenhi, I'm trying to get Desktop Ubuntu 20.04 LTS installed.  after installation proceeds on a blank disk with nothing on it, booting lands me in grub and nothing further happens.  sometimes I see lots of syntax error complaints from grub as well.  I did not specify special instructions for partitioning.  how do I figure out what's going on?05:35
BrokenNephilimsuccess. running ubuntu from usb.05:41
blogtenright, so that's what I did... get the ISO, put it on a USB disk, plug to the machine, install to the boot drive (no updates, nothing special, nothing custom).  result: grub, and doesn't boot.  the previous attempt resulted in grub with syntax errors all over the place, and still wouldn't boot.05:42
BrokenNephilimi do have grub at boot but a simple bios tweak and i left it as las priority in the boot sequence.05:45

mortwhy is the version 440.82 when it's really 440.6410:48
mortand how do I convince apt to actually get the proper 440.82 driver from the graphics drivers ppa10:49
tatertotsmort: by specifying specifically what package you want to install10:50
tatertotsmort: verbatim10:50
morttatertots: like `apt install nvidia-driver-440=440.82-0ubuntu0~` I assume? That just tells me I have held broken packages10:51

tatertotslooks like you have only one candidate which is 440 and already installed10:56
tatertotsso there's nothing left for you to do10:56
mortbut the version installed is 440.64, the graphics-drivers ppa has version 440.8210:56

tatertotsit's really 440.82 so same thing10:57
tatertotsno difference to fuss over10:57
mortso you're saying 440.82+really.440.64 is really 440.82? Why would it have "+really.440.64" in the name then?10:58

morttatertots: yes, it's generally what is recommended for ubuntu users who want somewhat not outdated graphics drivers11:08
ubottuLike apt and apt-get, aptitude is a terminal frontend for Ubuntu's package management system. Unlike the others, it is not recommended in Ubuntu because its behavior differs significantly from other Ubuntu package management tools and can cause issues.11:08

mortfucking awesome11:11
mortbut you've all just kind of ignored my question; why would the driver have the version 440.82+really.440.64? Why wouldn't that just be version 440.64 so that apt doesn't fucking break?11:21
mortthere's this game where version 440.82 was supposed to fix some huge performance issues with proton; I've for months just rebooted into windows for it after seeing that my system even with 440.82 has huge performance issues, but now that makes complete sense because apt's version fucking lies11:22

MBoardhi all, I have a desktop with Ubuntu 18.04 and I have 3 SSD drives.  Seems like I cannot get permission to write anything to the 2 other SSD drives, but I can write to the main SSD drive as well as a standard SATA drive.12:25
MBoardDo I need to change permissions or something on ubuntu to access the 2 drives which I cannot access at the moment?12:25
MBoardin case it makes any difference, the drives seem to be mounted as I can see them on the desktop, I can open the drives which are empty, but I cannot write to the drives12:26
BluesKajMBoard, probly try adding the ssds to /etc/fstab if lsblk lists them12:38
MBoardBluesKaj yes I just added these now, will reboot to see what happens.  Thank you12:41

Seversquick question, im sure its normal since it just happens every once in a while and they go away when i reboot, but why do i sometimes see a random sized unmountable volume appear on my desktop?13:08
tatertotsSevers: snaps/flatpacks or whatever they are calling them now days13:21
Seversah, so is it just Ubuntu updating those in the background then? I don't really install anything on here and i notice they pop up once or twice a week and just sit there until i reboot13:22
leftyfbtatertots: what?13:25
leftyfbtatertots: snaps will not do what Severs is reporting13:25
severs_so it's something else then?13:26

leftyfbalso screenshot the icon13:27
severscan i send it to you?13:29
leftyfbsevers: pastebin here please13:30
seversnow if i attempt to tell Ubuntu to mount it it says "Failed to mount 'Volume' The given volume was not found" which makes me feel like its just some background updating thing going on13:32

Wayward_VagabondHow do I disable the trash/trashcan system in ubuntu 18.04?13:38
Wayward_VagabondI can't remember how I turned it off last time, or really find anything about it, and not seeing any obvious settings13:38
coconutHi. I am trying to install ubuntu mate 20.04 on a new laptop. What do i have to do with secure boot?(i am new with uefi and secure boot and have no idea what this is).13:39
severs@coconut try this https://www.pcworld.com/article/2951559/how-to-install-linux-on-a-pc-with-secure-boot-enabled.html13:44
Wayward_VagabondI'm finding stuff that auto deletes trash items or removes the icon, but nothing about disabling the entire lot instead of just hiding it13:44
oerhekscoconut, see the uefi manual..13:45
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI13:45
coconutoerheks, ok thanks, but do i need secureboot?13:46
oerhekssecureboot is fine, fastboot not.13:46
coconutoerheks, install asks for password for secureboot. Can i just choose one, or do i have to cp one from uefi?13:47
Ben64i turned secureboot off13:47
oerhekssunno, the bios password?13:47
oerheksthat password is the last defence against malware13:48
coconutDo i really need to create a EFI-system partition?13:59
oerhekswith secureboot/uefi, yes14:00
oerheksbut ubuntu does that for you14:01
coconutoerheks, when i disable secureboot(need to do that from uefi bios right?) i don't need this?14:01
oerhekswithout secureboot, you have legacy mbr i guess14:02
oerheksit is all in the manual?14:03
coconutyeah i do not like reading manuals too much, but hehe i will try14:04
Wayward_VagabondI don't have secureboot on here, but still use an efi partion and gpt-partition table on boot drives14:18

lifeboyI have deleted the boot partition of my laptop NVMe drive which was formatted with the Ubuntu 18.04 installer using LVM and encruption.  The machine is still running and the main encrypted partition is entact and readible (aamof I'm actually posting this from the machine).  I need to recreate the boot partition.  How can I do that?16:29
lifeboyI have tried recovery with various tools (like gparted and others), but nothing is found to recover.16:30
tatertotslifeboy: have you reboot yet?16:30
lifeboytatertots: No, the system won't boot if I do!16:30
tatertotslifeboy: you should back up any important data/files then16:31
lifeboyI have done so16:31
lifeboyto my NAS16:31
tatertotslifeboy: did you learn any lesson from deleting partitions?16:32
lifeboyI'm thinking it can't be too difficult to only create a new boot partition, must can't find how to do it16:32
tatertotslifeboy: you can boot LiveCD/LiveUSB and play with partitions all day16:33
lifeboytatertots: you mean like focus on what you're doing late at night when you mean to format a flash drive? :-o16:33
tatertotslifeboy: you'd need to do it from LiveCD/LiveUSB16:33
tatertotslifeboy: so you might as well just reinstall and chalk it up to a lesson and be more careful in the future16:34
lifeboytatertots: I can do that yes, but then I don't learn anything new in the process.  Never waste a disaster as a learning opportunity.16:35
lifeboyI was hoping that somewhere someone has written down what the boot partition starting and ending sectors are for LVM with 18.04.  The boot info is there, I just need to add the partition details again16:37
tatertotslifeboy: lol..you can do anything on active partition so you'll be booting to some LiveCD/LiveUSB to repair or recover no matter what...there's nothing more or new for you to learn in this circumstance besides pick the correct disk and double check you've picked the correct disk before making "destructive" changes to partitions16:37
lifeboytatertots: do you come from the windows world??  With the reinstall advice I mean...   That's not the linus way, is it?16:38
tatertotslifeboy: you couldn't pick the right block device ....are you sure it's not YOU that came from windows world LMAO16:38
lifeboyI want to recreate the boot partition. I know it's possible, but I need the parameters.16:40
urxtnw Can rm -rf / typed without privileges still do damage?16:40
lifeboyReinstalling is so last century...16:40
tatertotslifeboy: looks like you better got to google'n or duckduckgo'n16:40
lifeboyI have, but no luck, which is why I'm here.16:41
lifeboyI'll hang around, maybe someone knows16:42
tatertotsask one of the mods..they might have a link for situation where a person has borked their installation / boot and steps to repair16:42
tatertotsthere's a tool call bootrec/boot repair that will do it...but you still have to boot it from LiveCD/LiveUSB16:43
tatertotsyou could use https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair maybe it'll save your bacon16:44

The_LoudSpeakerAny ideas?18:17
oerheksdevios, maybe the scanner wiki is any help; see sane https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Scanners#Setting_up_Network_Scanning18:18
zetheroo just noticed something weird on my Ubuntu 20.04 laptop ... when the lid is closed and the laptop is in sleep/suspend mode Pidgin periodically reconnects. :D I hear the audible notification and when I wake the laptop after a couple hours the Pidgin Nicksrv window is open and showing multiple connect messages ... how can this be happening!?18:20
deviosoerheks, that seems to point to instructions for plugging the scanner into a server and setting up sane daemon on that server so networked clients can use it.18:20
dominic34@The_LoudSpeaker  I'm no expert, but I believe that has something to do with Ubuntu not picking up the graphics card.18:20

billybigriggeroerheks i'll paste the log20:00
oerhekswell, try apt --fix-broken install ??20:01
billybigriggerya i can read, i'm asking if it's safe, because i know years ago apt would inform you of a command to fix the error, but always ended up borking it more20:02
oerheksafter that, 137 packages more comming. sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade ## and reboot20:03
billybigriggerwhy dist upgrade? i'm not upgrading to a new version20:04
oerheksno, dist-upgrade does not bring a new version20:05
ubottuA dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. This will not bring you to a new release of Ubuntu, see !upgrade if that is your intention.20:05
