SynfulAckon gnome there is a mouse slider option for mouse speed. I have that maxxed out but it still isnt fast enough. There must be some way to further increase it, its speed is slower than on windows?00:50
sarnoldsome mice have different 'dpi' settings and fiddling with that can drastically change the mouse speed00:51
avengerubuntu 20.04 mine is right in settings00:52
sarnoldmy anker has a little button on the top that cycles through a few dpi settings and fiddling with it makes it go faster or slower00:52
sarnoldsome other mice may put those settings in their windows drivers and there may or may not be a way to change those settings from linux00:52
avengerSynfulAck: you don't have a mouse&touchpad option in settings?00:53
avengerSynfulAck: or am i misunderstanding that you have the slider up and you need more? What mouse are you on? Much like sarnold my mouse has a "precision" but i occasionally hit by accident00:54
sarnoldthis webpage has a lot of information on some specific models of mice but makes no effort to describe them all. but maybe it'll help you find something? http://cryto.net/~joepie91/areson/00:54
glue11Hi everyone, for some reason unattended-upgrade is not updating my package list, though if update manually, it installs packages for me. Any idea what's going on? I think I have the right option set to enable updating the package list: APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "1"01:14
quadrathoch2glue11 it would help if you could post more than just that one line (as in the whole conf file probably)01:14

glue11quadrathoch2: here's that file: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/r34T72QCSb/01:18
quadrathoch2glue11 what does the /var/log/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log file say?01:21
Bashing-omglue11: There too is: http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/phased-updates.html .01:23
glue11quadrathoch2: these are the entries from the run today https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/26X3g2WcQC/01:24

quadrathoch2glue11 since when did you have that issue?01:29
sarnoldgrep "Packages that will be upgraded:" /var/log/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log01:30
sarnoldreally nothing?01:30
glue11Probably a few weeks. I've never got it working on this machine01:30
sarnoldso very strange01:30
Bashing-omglue11: If you run the update/upgrade from terminal - there is completion ?01:31
glue11if I update, the security updates will install the next day01:31
quadrathoch2glue11 anything on 'sudo unattended-upgrade -d'?01:32
glue11If I upgrade, they install fine01:32
glue11Let me run it now01:32
Bashing-omglue11: Apt in terminal takes prcedence over unattended-upgrade. Else phased updates are in effect.01:32
sarnoldI'm not surprised nothing happened today, this was the last security update https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/focal-changes/2020-June/019013.html01:32
glue11Does unattended-upgrade rely on my local package list?01:33
glue11I mean I can sit tight and wait but I've literally never seen it install anything unless I manually ran apt update01:35
glue11And the logs say nothing about retrieving a new package list01:36
quadrathoch2glue, well you shouldn't see too much, as you only have security updates active. and unattended upgrade does take your sources.list and sources.list.d/ files01:36
quadrathoch2glue11 that should be under another log file in the same folder (can't remember the name)01:36
glue11Is it unattended-upgrades-dpkg.log? If so the last timestamp is on June 16 and I probably ran apt update that day01:40
Bashing-omglue11: /var/log/dpkg.log .01:41
glue11Same thing there. Nothing after June 16th01:42
sarnoldglue11: hah, thanks for raising this; I forgot I turned off unattended-upgrades on my laptop during the focal devel cycle01:45
sarnoldglue11: maybe try sudo dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades  -- if it says it's already on, maybe turn it off, then run it again and turn it on again?01:45
glue11sarnold: OK, I'll try it. Is there a way to test it after without waiting?01:47
sarnoldglue11: nothing easy -- we're not going to publish a security update until monday, so you may not know until tuesday if this worked or not..01:49
quadrathoch2the command I gave you should give you the output glue11. hm on my pi, it is working (but I also update the 'normal' updates, not only security01:49
sarnoldglue11: (well, I guess there's always a chance that there's a catastrophic problem that requires a weekend update, but those are very very rare)01:49
sarnoldif you take the normal updates too, that might happen faster01:49
glue11I can try enabling normal updates01:49
sarnoldyou could also downgrade a package, but I don't like that idea very much..01:50
glue11What line do I change/add to get normal updates?01:51
djusticei have an old 16.04 install that's throwing "Releases file not found".. errors during apt upgrade.01:52
sarnolddjustice: what mirror did you configure? does it still have 16.04?01:53
quadrathoch2glue11 //      "${distro_id}:${distro_codename}-updates"; (remove the slashes)01:54
SpeedrunnerG55help, i cant move my mouse to the top of my screen or els it teleports tot he corner01:56
glue11OK so I did that. Ran sudo unattended-upgrade -d and it updated 1 package. Then I ran sudo apt update, and it says I have 28 new packages.01:56
glue11Is that normal?01:57
glue11Seems like no01:57
quadrathoch2really weird :/02:00
Bashing-omglue11: Providing your mirror is up2date: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/focal-changes/2020-June/date.html.02:00
glue11Bashing-om: so is something wrong with my mirror?02:16
Bashing-omglue11: Doubtfull there is anything "wrong" takes time for some mirrors to sync up with mother. See: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors .02:18
sarnoldbut some mirrors are worse than others :)02:19
sarnoldstill, *eventually* you ought to get updates ..02:19
glue11my sources.list has archive.ubuntu.com02:22
glue11I don't see that listed in the website from Bashing-om02:23
sarnoldheh, that's the master, that's the one that the others are cloning02:23
glue11so i'm screwed?02:28
Bashing-omglue11: I have yet to see there is a problm :(02:29
glue11Bashing-om: if I run sudo unattended-upgrade -d and then immediately after sudo apt update, is it normal to get new packages available for install?02:31
djusticesarnold: yes, and us.archive.ubuntu02:31
MoonKing1969hello all. could anyone help me with displaying full path on nautilus/files02:34
Bashing-omglue11: "unattended-upgrade" is phased updates where only a certain percentage of what is available is released to a certain pertentage of the user base, Whereas apt is just "do it, please".02:34

SynfulAckavenger, Its a logitech g502 mouse. The slider is maxed already.03:15
avengerthe 502 has dpi buttons. have you messed with them?03:19
avengeryou need to use windows or osx apparently to set the settings/profiles in the mouse and then they're stored in the mouse itself, and you can use the functions in linux03:21
sarnoldthis may have support for that mouse if the dpi buttons don't go https://github.com/libratbag/libratbag/03:21
avengerfor me, allegedly is short for "I googled this" ;)03:22
sarnoldaww. here I thought it was a letterkenny reference.03:22
avengersadly i need to watch it. i have failed you03:24
sarnoldpitter patter03:24
SynfulAckavenger, sarnold any idea if i can use gnome boxes to create a windows vm and pass through the mouse to configure?03:44
quadrathoch2SynfulAck it should, if not you can also use virt-manager03:44
sarnoldSynfulAck: I'd try the things that are packaged in the archive first, that's probably faster than installing a windows03:44
SynfulAcksarnold, what archive?03:44
sarnoldSynfulAck: the ubuntu archive03:45
sarnoldit'll probably take ten to twenty seconds to install and start piper and see if it works..03:45
sarnoldhow long will it take to download a windows iso? :)03:46
SynfulAckwhats piper?03:46
sarnoldthe gui front end to the ratbag tool I mentioned03:46
SynfulAcksarnold, I havent even begun to look at that. Im just checking to c if i can load a default profile cause everything on the mouse is customized and dpi switching is disabled.03:47
sarnoldI just installed and ran it and found it couldn't touch my mouse..03:48
sarnoldnot bad for ~one minute of effort03:48
SynfulAcksarnold, idk how that software works but looking at https://github.com/libratbag/libratbag/tree/master/data/devices lists some of the g502 models so id assume it would work. Also im unsure if this will conflict with another piece of software I am running which allows me to change the scroll speed because that too was pathetic on gnome. :( . imwheel . It seems to disable mouse keys unless configured in some file. So much work for just two03:52

PraecepsThat would explain where I've seen it then04:08
Praecepsbig confirmation on my SHA256 hunch! Thanks :D04:09
sarnoldyou're welcome :)04:11
sarnolddo note that this file format is pretty well established with md5sum, sha1sum, sha256sum, etc, so it could also be another hash of the same length output04:11
sarnoldI don't know of any others but if you're doing a CTF this feels like the sort of thing they might be a smartass about and use blake2* or skein or something, you know? :)04:12

sarnoldnice nice04:14

SynfulAcksarnold, didnt even know about the piper frontend. I thought for a second I had to use this api and write something. I didnt try using piper without the library but so far the piper thing seems to be working despite weird bugs like having to apply several times to get things working.04:38
SynfulAckAlso, i find it hard to believe but my dpi is at 12,000 right now sooo dunno if i believe that or that the gnome mouse settings are so bad thats what it takes. Thats also the max dpi i can go with piper.04:38

halfcsHi I am on an Ubuntu-Mate, which port do I need to open to allow the weather applet in the task bar to retrieve the weather data from weather.com?09:41
ShillosI think weather.com can give you the answer to that.09:44
ShillosIf you don't know the port number, then try also asking them.09:45
halfcsShillos: already tried but they asked me to sign up to get even to the documentation of their api :/09:45
ShillosSo if it must be the only way. I would do that. Most of the time most apps give you the opportunity to use their api. Maybe there are some things that they explain more in their documentation.09:48

stompykinsi read that wrong pinheadmz111:38
pinheadmz1the file is start-tor-browser.desktop and i *can* execute it from termiinsl11:38

stompykinspinheadmz1: any luck?11:41
pinheadmz1dang realy?11:41
pinheadmz1not just a property on the singke file11:42
stompykinsit should reset your mimetype settings11:42
pinheadmz1ill try11:42
pinheadmz1ty one sec11:42
stompykinswell you could try sudo dpkg-reconfigure shared-mime-info but i'd think it would do the same, really :P11:42

pinheadmz1ooh thanks lemme see11:48
stompykinsactually this might be your problem too11:48
stompykinscould be a gnome-files setting that does it11:49
stompykinswhere it displays an executable instead of launching it..11:49
stompykinsdouble check your gnome-files preferences first11:49
stompykinssince it launches in a terminal and not in gnome, that could totally be the problem pinheadmz111:49

pinheadmz1basically i have a DNS resolver that i run on an IP11:56
pinheadmz1but when i set DNS to that IP in the GUI settings, it jsut doesnt work11:56
pinheadmz1and itll work if i manually edit /etc/resolv.conf11:56
pinheadmz1but in this version of ubuntu that file gets overwritten on boot :-/11:56
BluesKajpinheadmz1, dns should be set in /etc/systemd/resolved.conf11:59
pinheadmz1BluesKaj: so when i restart resolved or logout/in /etc/resolv.conf gets overwritten with
pinheadmz1it ignores the settings in /etc/systemd/resolv.conf12:20
pinheadmz1and the wifi settings in the GUI ar elike, i dunno what the deal is with that12:20
pinheadmz1at this point i think im going to just disable "NetworkManager" or whatver the proxy is12:20
pinheadmz1i was just hoping the GUI settings would just work12:20
BluesKajNM config is probly over writing12:21

pinheadmz1or dns=none sorry13:22
pinheadmz1then network manager stopping f---ing with my /etc/resolv.conf13:22

pinheadmz1still kinda wish the GUI settings pane worked13:23
pinheadmz1but more i use linux desktop13:23
pinheadmz1more i learn everything is a work around :-)13:23

nbusronelotuspsychje : thanks , at ubuntu season flashback bug on 18.04 would be the clock setting or indicator panel which did not show full date and time.I am not sure whether it's the indicator or gnome-season-flashback issue. https://imgur.com/DJBBIr0 vs https://imgur.com/w7vhJjC16:49
lotuspsychjenbusrone: did you try tweaking clock/date with dconf-editor?16:52
oerheksgnome-tweak-tool gives those options too. date, week, seconds..16:52
ubottufirefox is the default web browser on Ubuntu. To install the latest version, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxNewVersion | To install plugins: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxPlugins16:53
nbusronelotuspsychje : did that16:53
nbusronelotuspsychje : at Unity it works well but not in gnome flashback metacity16:54
oerheksyou might need to logout/login to let those changes take effect?16:55
lotuspsychjenbusrone: are you saying dconf does not influence/changes it?16:55
nbusronelotuspsychje : yep , for the full indicator .dconf only change the clock but not the indicator applet complete16:57
lotuspsychjenbusrone: is this the default clock from flashback, or a gnome extension?16:58
nbusronelotuspsychje : default clock16:59
nbusronelotuspsychje : not that important but somehow I think if It can fix it easily. I encounter different cases where gnome flashback cannot right click and arrange icon + new document and etc Maybe 20.04 is still new https://www.pc-freak.net/blog/linux-gnome-flashback-missing-desktop-icons-howto-fix/17:01
lesshastetomreyn,  wrong window, apologies17:07
lotuspsychjenbusrone: lemme go test that holdon17:07
nbusronelotuspsychje : they fix the icon display and right click on 18.04 but not on 20.04 while the indicator clock applet complete is fine on 20.04 but not at 18.04. :(17:10
lotuspsychjenbusrone: installed flashback and i see only time17:12
nbusronelotuspsychje : though it some major problem on 18.04 but on 20.04 right click no document able to create and arrange.I will wait for the updates.Revert back to gnome unity.17:12
lotuspsychjenbusrone: date tweak is enabled in dconf but it doesnt add it17:12
oerheksyou might need to logout/login to let those dconf changes take effect?17:13
nbusroneoerheks : did that too17:13
lotuspsychjethink flashback uses its own stuff17:14
oerheksi did not know gnome flashback  was still an option17:14
nbusronelotuspsychje : try adding clock on 18.04 , it does show full date17:14
lotuspsychjecause clicking the time, opens a time/date window17:14
oerheksgnome2 limitations.. i wonder if that ever will be 'fixed'17:14
nbusroneoerheks : I prefer older customize Ubuntu interface  :)17:14
lotuspsychjenbusrone: try it perhaps with installing unity desktop on ?17:15
nbusroneoerheks : though it's not something important that interferes with current works.17:16
nbusronelotuspsychje :  20.04 clock works , but right click no document , not able to create and arrange icon.If you test it again.17:17
lotuspsychjenbusrone: 20.04 has desktop icons disabled by default17:17
lotuspsychjethats a feature now17:17
lotuspsychjenbusrone: again with dconf-editor, enable show desktop icons17:18
nbusronelotuspsychje :  20.04 did show the icon but on right click , you cannot arrange the icon, it set to auto and new document doesn't work even i add https://vitux.com/add-new-document-back-to-the-right-click-menu-in-ubuntu-18-04/17:21
fradhow do I opne a .rar file?17:24
nbusronelotuspsychje : on desktop interface. new document not working but at nautilus filer manager works.I will wait for flashback to fix since 20.04 is new just release last month.17:25
littlepythonhi there, jenkins:x:996:994:Jenkins Automation Server:/var/lib/jenkins:/bin/false17:41

littlepythonsure thanks EriC^^18:08
EriC^^no problem littlepython18:09
littlepythonEriC^^ one more question18:11
littlepythonerror: cannot open .git/FETCH_HEAD: Permission denied18:11
EriC^^littlepython: what command are you running that's giving that?18:12
littlepythoni am trying to run this18:13
littlepythonit runs as a jenkins user18:14
EriC^^littlepython: what is the output of "stat .git/FETCH_HEAD && id"18:14
littlepythonalso  i have added the jenkins user to the root group18:14
EriC^^littlepython: that seems like a bad idea, why not give him privileges based on what he needs only18:15
EriC^^via sudo or so18:15
littlepython"stat: cannot stat ‘.git/FETCH_HEAD’: No such file or directory"18:15
littlepythoni dont find a file called FETCH_HEAD18:15
EriC^^littlepython: is it the home dir of jenkins?18:17
littlepythonno its in /tmp18:17
EriC^^oh, so /tmp/.git18:17
littlepythonyes i found the directory but i dont see a file called FETCH_HEAD18:18
littlepythonEriC^^ I have cleared the directory.. now i get this error18:20
EriC^^littlepython: no idea, seems like git didn't create it for some reason18:23
fradim using locate (command) to find files, can I use it to list directories?18:23
EriC^^littlepython: or maybe you need to create it first, then git can use it18:23
EriC^^littlepython: try 'mkdir /tmp/dsag-sap' then try running it again18:23
EriC^^frad: doesn't seem like locate supports dirs only18:26

dtuxi often feel hesitant to install things that aren't offered thru apt (e.g. ledger-live)... is that unfounded?18:28
oerheksdtux, one should be carefull, yes, we have PPA's for private rerpositories.. and now we have snap too18:29
filifunkyguys I can't do a sudo apt update.  I get a ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'apt_pkg'18:30
oerhekshave fun ( you will get updates with snaps, opposite of installing stuff manual )18:30
filifunkyis this the right place to ask?18:30
EriC^^frad: this seems like a quick workaround "sudo strings /var/lib/mlocate/mlocate.db | grep -E '^/.*dirname'"18:30
dtuxoerheks: ah, nice! ty... what is the primary concern with manual? compatibility? security?18:31
oerheksfilifunky, what did you change in your install, python?18:31
oerheksdtux, check of the source/maintainer, and most important to me, updates18:31
filifunkyoerheks, yeah I've been trying to do some things with python...kind of a long story but I suspect my python situation is messed up18:31
fradthanks EriC^^18:32
EriC^^frad: or this "locate --null <dirname here> | xargs -r0 sh -c 'for i do [ -d "$i" ] && printf "%s\n" "$i"; done' sh {} +"18:32
EriC^^frad: no problem18:32
dtuxfilifunky: do/did you ever `sudo pip`?18:35
filifunkydtux I believe so :(18:36
oerheksinstalled python2?18:36
filifunkyoerheks I believe so as well18:36
oerheksfilifunky, maybe ths page is your fix too18:38
oerheksa few steps and reboot..18:38
oerheks( or remove python2.7)18:38
filifunkyoerheks thanks!  digging in18:38

EriC^^try "apt-cache policy python3-apt"18:41
filifunkyEriC^^: https://bpa.st/DL3Q18:43
filifunkylooks like its installed18:43
EriC^^filifunky: what does 'dpkg -S apt_pkg' give for you? do the python3 file exist if you try 'ls <filename>' ?18:45
filifunkyEriC^^ a lot of stuff:  https://bpa.st/4EPQ  thats just a portion18:47
filifunkyEriC^^ I don't understand your second part.  I have a python file called morning3.py that I wrote if I do ls morning3.py it shows up...are you asking about a different file?18:48
EriC^^filifunky: i feel like you put "dpkg -S apt pkg" without the underscore18:48
filifunkyEriC^^ ahh yes underscores don't show up for me sometimes in that chat18:49
filifunkyEriC^^ https://bpa.st/LGVQ18:49
EriC^^filifunky: i think this is supposed to be the apt_pkg module /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apt_pkg.cpython-38-x86_64-linux-gnu.so18:51
EriC^^does "ls -l /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apt_pkg.cpython-38-x86_64-linux-gnu.so" show a file?18:51
filifunkyyep! https://bpa.st/2TKQ18:53
EriC^^filifunky: very odd, you could try to reinstall python3-apt, it might help, sudo apt-get install --reinstall python3-apt18:54

oerheksreinstall would overwrite the stuff python2 did..19:05
filifunkyEriC^^ it workeddddddddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!19:09

filifunkyEriC^^ I'm trying to run this program called rednotebook and I get this error:  https://bpa.st/7UFA19:10
filifunkyEriC^^ when I had this before I tried using different versions of python and am afraid that just made my life more complicated.  Would you recommend I try a sudo apt install python3-gi?  or is this no longer an ubuntu problem?19:11
EriC^^filifunky: yeah, i'd try to install python3-gi19:13
EriC^^don't see the harm in it since it's in the repos i guess19:13
filifunkyEriC^^ hmmm any thoughts here: https://bpa.st/ABNA19:19
EriC^^filifunky: how did you end up fixing the apt_pkg problem?19:20
EriC^^remove then reinstall?19:20
filifunkyEric^^ yep, did the first answer in that link you sent19:21
filifunkyEric^^ did the purge lol19:21
EriC^^filifunky: try 'apt-get remove -s python-gi'  what does it say it wants to remove (that's just a simulation/dry-run)19:22
EriC^^if it's just that python-gi package, maybe try 'sudo apt-get purge python-gi && sudo apt-get install python-gi' maybe it fixes it too19:23

Wicked@Ben64, I'm afraid if I reboot some additional "hacks" could come into effect.20:45
Ben64why do you think its hacks to begin with20:45
WickedI logged in and saw user "test" running 2 "bash" scripts both using max cpu. It also seemed user "test" was running a "/sbin/systemd"20:46
