delvianHi All.  Where can I find an alternative to gnome-clocks?  It's waaay too much effort and time to get it to work on 20.0400:26
delvianI need something with a world clock and alarms.00:26
tatertotsdelvian: have you ever considered using your iPhone?00:29
WesleyTech@sarnold AMI00:30
WesleyTech@sarnold AMI's are region specific, you have to search us-west-2 to find this one.00:30
delviantatertots: I have it on my phone, but I'd like it on my PC too :)00:30
delvianIt doesn't seem like a complicated app, I'd expect many alternatives but I can't seem to find any in the repos.00:32
delvianFirst, the alarms and timer wasn't making a sound.  I eventually got that to work, but now it won't even open at all.00:34
delvianThe GNOME devs just blame the Ubuntu devs for packaging it incorrectly :(00:34
sarnoldWesleyTech: I still don't spot the dotnetcore or ami numbers in the ubuntu ec2 ami locator00:34
WesleyTechUpon further inspection, this AMI might be owned by Amazon, not Canonical...00:35

neilduganI have just install ubuntu-mate on a VM, done a 'apt dist-upgrade' and when I go to install a printer driver, I get the error "E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages." ... can anyone help here.00:57
sarnoldtry sudo apt update && sudo apt install -f00:58
neildugansarnold, that didn't fix the problem... yesterday I successfully installed the same package on a different VM01:00
neildugansarnold, the dependacy is "lsb:amd64 (>= 3.2) but it is not installable"01:01
sarnoldneildugan: try sudo dpkg --configure -a01:01
oerheksafter dist-upgrade, vm rebooted?01:01
neilduganoerheks, hang on a sec01:02
neildugansarnold, oerheks, a reboot didn't fix the problem01:04
sarnoldneildugan: alright, can you pastebin the output of your attempt?01:05
neildugansarnold, the 'apt install'01:05
linelevelHi everyone. After upgrading my server to 20.04, every time I log in I see "403 packages can be updated." -- But then when I run `sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade`, I see that "All packages are up to date." (or if there are some updates, I see those). But when I log in, it always says 403 packages to update. Any ideas?01:06
linelevelWhere is that 403 number coming from? Is there a different sources.list that it's using, perhaps?01:06
bparkertry sudo apt dist-upgrade01:07
oerhekslinelevel, tun apt dist-upgrade, it brings in kernel and stuff01:07
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.01:07
linelevel@bparker @oerheks Running `sudo apt dist-upgrade` says "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded."01:07
oerheksand requires a reboot, see if /var/run/reboot-required exists01:08
linelevelI've restarted the server several times since this problem appeared.01:08
neildugansarnold, oerheks, the full output of the install is @ https://pastebin.com/Ue2v5FxK01:08
oerhekshmm so your login/motd gives wrong info?01:08
lineleveloerheks: Yes, it seems as such.01:09
neildugansarnold, oerheks, should I just kill the VM and redo?01:10
sarnoldneildugan: how about suto apt install lsb?01:10
sarnoldneildugan: hmm... actually, are you sure you made it amd64? check uname -a output01:11
neildugansarnold, "# uname -a" = "Linux julieVM 5.3.0-59-generic #53~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 4 14:55:07 UTC 2020 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux"01:13

oerheksfind the i386 version01:14

oerheksthat wuld be preferable, sarnold +101:14
sarnoldI'm a bit worried with that .deb filename that this package hasn't been updated in nine years01:15
lineleveloerheks: Any idea what could cause that? Or how I should go about troubleshooting further?01:15
neildugansarnold, what value indicates i386?01:16
sarnoldlsb > 3.2 suggests the same thing, as lsb was 4.0 in 12.04 days...01:16
sarnold"i686 i686 i686"01:16

neilduganok so why does the host which reports "x86_64" create a "i686" VM by default?  is this a problem?01:19
sarnoldnugroho: so, uh, what's the point of all this?01:19
sarnoldneildugan: how did you create it?01:20
neildugansarnold, hang on a couple of minutes while a create a new one, with slightly different setup.01:21

delvianI'm looking for an alternative to gnome-clocks.  The GNOME devs recommend installing the flatpak to get it to work, but that requires a nearly 1GB download of dependencies just to get the 2MB clock to work, which I don't want to do.01:38
R0b0t1I've got a system where /etc seems readonly01:42
delvianSomebody suggested that I use the world clock and alarms on my phone, but that isn't the point.01:42
R0b0t1how do I fix that?01:42
R0b0t1I had to remount / as rw01:42
CarlFKnugroho: please stop.01:43
delvianI use the alarms as a timer while I work, so I'd like it on my workstation.01:43
oerheksR0b0t1, run a fsck with live iso ?01:43
rfmdelvian, there's a gnome-clocks package in universe for bionic and focal..01:48

oerheksgnome-clocks package from where?01:51

oerheksoh oke, i am still on 18.0401:53

rfm^30^20, I'm not from the future.01:54
rud0lfthat's what i call an early access, rfm ;)01:55
delvianA search on launchpad says that it's a known bug with no fix.  I'm just tired of wasting time on it and I'm trying to find something that works.01:56
delvianThe GNOME devs say that it's they way Canonical compiled it that's causing problems.01:56

rominroninI'm about to go live with a web project, hosted on a client server.06:16

rominroninCan anyone help?06:18
oerheks16.04 gives 1 year support. i would go 1 lts higher, 18.04 LTS with HWE06:20

rominroninyeah, there's one microsoft extension which I'm almost certain I would need to upgrade: mssql06:25
rominroninwhat if I wanted to apply security patches to 16.04, without upgrading yet, to buy time for research06:26
rominroninI have to go live today and only discovered the version this morning06:26

marslanderlegreffier: ^12:12
marslanderif I switch 'Print' to 'Pause', the command works with Pause key12:14
Cymewpymagic: What do you want to do for managing tasks? Patching? Package groups in Landscape is probably the default way, otherwise you probably want to look at ansible.12:14

pymagicCymew, I just need a few things: Add/delete users. Change sudo. Remove/update ssh keys.12:15

marslanderI also tried 'bindsym 0xff61 ...'12:22
Velardeare you talking about print screen?12:23
marslanderI'm trying to fix that key. The physical key works fine, it's just that it doesn't want to be mapped using i3 config12:24
marslanderit's driving me nuts12:24
marslanderi3 config is supposed to take this 'bindsym Print exec whatever.command.I.want'12:25
Velardemaybe you can find other ways outside i3 to map the key12:27
marslanderok I'll try12:28
Cymewpymagic: Sounds like you should learn some ansible. You can use cockpit for a lot of things, but you will have to click your way through all the machines. You need to use some proper automation.12:30

alwynI am trying to upgrade an ubuntu server from 14.04 to 16.04 (yes, I know, please don't mention it), and do-release-upgrade keeps saying "No candidate ver: linux-image-3.16.0-36-generic" and for more versions, however 3.X isn't installed at all...13:00
lotuspsychjealwyn: upgrade from eol versions is highly discouraged13:05
lotuspsychjealwyn: unless you are a payed ESM user?13:05
alwynlotuspsychje: we are, however I am not sure if we use ESM on these machines specifically13:06
alwynlotuspsychje: can you elaborate on highly discouraged? It should still be doable right? I'm not skipping a version or anything13:06
lotuspsychjealwyn: well alot of security flaws on eol versions see !usn so we advice to upgrade to the next before your system goes eol13:07
lotuspsychjealwyn: yes its possible to do !eolupgrade but not really reccomended13:08
MrHallHi! I have mounted an usb over a folder but cant change user owner of these files, how can i do it? With sudo chmod -R /myMontedFolder i couldnt13:08
alwynlotuspsychje: I agree on your point of security, however that's beyond my question13:08
ubottuEnd-Of-Life is when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop. Make sure to update Ubuntu before it goes EOL so you get updates promptly for newly-discovered security vulnerabilities. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOL and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more info. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades13:08

AlexMaxI have Firefox set as my default browser, and yet Chrome sees fit to open any HTML files on my disk opened with xdg-open. How do I change this?13:12
leftyfbAlexMax: https://itsfoss.com/change-default-applications-ubuntu/13:19
Velardeso you get firefox from running "xdg-settings get default-web-browser"?13:21
AlexMaxleftyfb: The defaults in settings are already set.  The latter settings don't stick - even when I "Open With" and change it to Firefox, it doesn't stick.13:22
leftyfbVelarde: it's not the default browser setting13:22
AlexMaxThe "Open with" setting doesn't stick.  I open with Firefox, but it still shows up as Chrome later.13:23
leftyfbAlexMax: try editing /usr/share/applications/defaults.list13:24
kk4ewtAlexMax;  of course one way is to remove chrome :)13:25
AlexMaxThat's a silly answer, I need both installed. :)13:25
AlexMaxWell, not quite silly, because you are quite correct, but silly on Ubuntu's part because I shouldn't have to remove the browser just to remove it as a default.13:26
VelardeDoes anyone use MS Teams on Ubuntu?13:26
VelardeIt uses so much resources and takes over camera and microphone, is there any way to limit the app?13:27
AlexMaxleftyfb: That was an enlightening thing to look for.  I think I could fix it if I needed to, but I wanted to do a little more research and found out that there is also a mimeapps.list, that is considered the more up to date file to modify.13:36
AlexMaxSo yeah, for your edification, there's a ~/.config/mimeapps.list that contains added associations and defaults13:37
AlexMaxStill, i appreciate your suggestion, because without it would've taken me a fair bit longer to get there13:39

=== Deano59ONE is now known as Deano59
paperhawkhey all, pretty new here but i was hoping that someone might be able to help troubleshoot some restart/locking issues that i've seen with a new computer. if this isn't the place to look, could someone point me in the right direction?18:22
threeneilh90 what have you tried doing?18:23
threepaperhawk youre going to need to elaborate on your issue18:23
Deano59paperhawk: don't ask to ask, shoot your question.18:25
Deano59Someone might know, or might not.18:25
paperhawkRight, I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 and I noticed that my screen suddenly decided to lock and then the screen went black. I couldn't do anything until I held down the power button and restarted. Afterwards, I opened up chrome and started scrolling through syslog. Switching between the two was slow and it looks like it logged me out.18:26
paperhawkI'm still looking through syslog at the moment but let me know if there's any other information I can provide.18:28
threewhich desktop environment and display manager are you using?18:29
paperhawkI'm using Gnome18:30
paperhawkLet me see if I can check the display manager.18:30
paperhawkLooks like gdm3?18:31
paperhawkGnome 3.28.2 specifically.18:32
neilh90three, I'm not too sure what I can do atm18:33
neilh90I am new to linux. But I did check the additional drivers part of the upgrade tool. But there is only a driver for the network manager18:34
threethe drivers for amd cards are packaged with the linux kernal normally. When does the screen tearring occur18:35
neilh90If I move windows, if I scroll, say on google chrome18:36
neilh90and watching videos18:36
threepaperhawk I'm not really sure how to help unless you can provide more info about the situation. Like have you ben able to recreate the problem multiple times to narrow down what could be causing it?18:36
threewhat kind of monitor are you using?18:36
threeoh are you on a laptop18:37
neilh90Yeah a new HP Pavilion18:37
threeneilh90 check out this wiki page. its for arch but it should still be relevant https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ATI18:39
paperhawkthree, I'm not able to recreate the problem since it happens spontaneously for the most part.18:39
threepaperhawk im not really sure then personally. Try googling something like "ubuntu 20.04 randomly logs out"18:41
threeid say google is your best bet18:41
paperhawkWell, thanks for your help anyway, three.18:44
sarnoldpaperhawk: is there anything funny in dmesg? journalctl?18:45
paperhawksarnold, I'll take a look.18:48
paperhawkInitial look at dmesg shows me a bunch of apparmor='DENIED' for discord, but I don't think that would've done something like that.18:49
sarnoldpaperhawk: yeah, that's https://github.com/snapcrafters/discord/issues/2318:51
paperhawkjournalctl has "deja-dup-monito[3834]: Source ID 785 was not found when attempting to remove it"  as well as "gsd-sharing[2425]: Failed to StopUnit service: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.systemd1.NoSuchUnit:"18:52
paperhawkwith various services after it.18:52
sarnolddeja-dup is probably unrelated, gnome or gtk stuff spews those all the time18:52
sarnoldgsd-sharing, I'm not sure, that one might be related18:52
paperhawkI took a look in /var/crash and did see some python trace from dell-linux assistant18:53
paperhawkNot the most helpful error message but I found this "gnome-session-binary[2277]: Unrecoverable failure in required component org.gnome.Shell.desktop" and "gnome-session-binary[2277]: WARNING: App 'org.gnome.Shell.desktop' respawning too quickly"19:03
paperhawksarnold, I'll try to trace the PID now through the log and see what I find.19:04
sarnoldpaperhawk: do you have any gnome extensions enabled?19:05
sarnoldpaperhawk: gnome extensions are apparently pretty flaky and can cause crashes when the slightest things go wrong19:05
paperhawkI do.19:05
paperhawkI have it enabled so that I could customize my toolbar up top.19:05
paperhawkBut I think you're probably on to something. I think this is where it failed "systemd[2247]: gnome-terminal-server.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE"19:07
paperhawkAnd this would be where I noticed slowness when Alt-tabbing between programs I think "systemd[2247]: gnome-terminal-server.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE"19:09
paperhawkOops real one "/usr/lib/gdm3/gdm-x-session[2266]: (EE) client bug: timer event17 tap: offset negative (-2741ms)"19:10
sarnoldhow'd you tap on something nearly three seconds in the future? :)19:11
paperhawkBy tapping very fast I suppose. But in all seriousness I think gnome extensions might be the issue. I can probably do some googling given some of the errors I see. Thanks for pointing me towards journalctl, sarnold. Totally forgot about that.19:16
sarnoldpaperhawk: it'd probably be fastest to bisect the extensions -- turn off half of them, see if that fixes things, if so, re-enable half, if not, disable the other half, etc19:18

B0g4r7What's all this "snap" business?  I never saw it in 18.04, but it's all up in my 20.04.22:54
B0g4r7My system shows no less than 20 /dev/loopN filesystems mounted that are somehow associated with snap.22:55
sarnoldB0g4r7: it's a new package format that's intended to make it easier to upgrade portions of the system on independent cycles22:56
B0g4r7I tried to save a file from a program that was "snapped", and I was not able to write it to my home directory.22:56
B0g4r7So far I don't like it.22:56
sarnoldB0g4r7: that's the sandboxing that's in place -- https://ubuntu.com/blog/a-guide-to-snap-permissions-and-interfaces https://snapcraft.io/docs/interface-management https://snapcraft.io/docs/supported-interfaces22:58
B0g4r7So, is there a way to save a file from a snap sandboxed program?23:01
sarnoldB0g4r7: snaps can always save to their own data directory; many snaps can also have the 'home' interface connected to let them store into your home directory23:04
dengiwill Ubuntu work with mac cpus?23:05
B0g4r7This one doesn't let me save at all.  "There was an error trying to save the transaction history to /home/user/Documents/myexport.csv".23:05
B0g4r7"The interfaces used by a snap can be shown in two ways, either graphically through the Software application or via the command-line."23:05
B0g4r7Software application huh.  I don't see any application by that name installed when I look in the menu.23:06
Bashing-om!mac | dengi23:06
ubottudengi: For help on installing and using Ubuntu on a Mac, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MactelSupportTeam/CommunityHelpPages23:06
B0g4r7I must say, this is a big step backwards when it comes to ease of use.  If I had known to expect this I might have stayed with 18.04.23:08
EriC^^B0g4r7: i think you can still install using apt and repos instead of snaps23:11
dengiMac announced that they will use own cpus23:11
dengiso it will require pretty new kernel23:11
Bashing-omB0g4r7: I too am not comfortable with snaps - while we can remove the daemon from the system - unfortunatly there are some apps that are only available in the snap format.23:12
sarnolddengi: no one knows if you'll be able to swap out the software on the new macs or not23:12
B0g4r7Who is Mac?23:12
sarnolddengi: they're going to be building aarch64 kernels, which ubuntu has supported for years -- but peripherals such as video, network, storage, etc may all require brand new work23:12
B0g4r7OK, so the webpage uses the wrong name.  When they say "Software application" they mean the "Ubuntu Software" application.23:13
B0g4r7I followed the instructions and examined tha snap permissions, and added the only available permission that was not available "Read and write files from removable storage devices", and after restarting the application it still is not able to write a file to my home directory.23:15
B0g4r7er, added the only available permission that was not already enabled.23:15
B0g4r7Ya, I hope I can find this program via apt somewhere.23:16
sarnoldB0g4r7: before you uninstall it, could you run 'snap info' on the thing to find out where to report the problems with it?23:16
dengisarnold: lol imagine if most apple users will install ubuntu23:17
