Bashing-omClose Chrome. Open the file manager, press ctrl+H or show hidden files from menu, go to .local/share/keyrings, move the content to some backup place. Then logout and log back in. Open Chrome, there will be a pop up asking you to set a keyring password, leave it blank, confirm, then it shouldn't bother you anymore. If everything works, you can delete the backup you saved earlier.00:09

akemchikkoroll, The logs are in /var/log have a looks in kern.log thats the kernel or syslog, you can use the command 'grep' to search for strings inside of the files. Also the dmesg command can be handy to print some log infos.04:27

MzR_Masseyhow would someone mount 2 separate drives to a ubuntu 16.04.7 server?05:38
matsamanMzR_Massey: for what purpose05:42
MzR_Masseyfor storage, via FTP05:43
MzR_MasseyI have 3 drives total on my dedicated server, a Main  SSD 240GB, and two 1-TB HHD drives05:43
matsamanprobably you'd want to add an entry in /etc/fstab for it, similar to but not exactly matching the line you have for the '/' partition05:43
matsamanthat'll ensure it's mounted at boot, if done right; and without rebooting you can 'mount LABEL=whatever' to mount it, again if done right05:44
matsamanand then there are fancier things you can do to pretend they are one storage medium05:44
matsamanlike using mhddfs, or LVM, or a ton of other things05:44
MzR_Masseyhttps://paste.ubuntu.com/p/mDF4vtwkgz/  this is what that file looks like05:47
matsamanMzR_Massey: okay so your root FS is using LVM05:48
MzR_MasseyOkay,  not entirely sure if that's a good thing or not05:50
matsamanit's what the installer defaulted to probably05:50
matsamanI don't use LVM, though, so I can't offer you personally acquired info.05:52
matsamanMzR_Massey: https://askubuntu.com/questions/458476/adding-disks-with-lvm05:52
matsamanthe traditional way would be to look at lsblk -f, find the device you're intersted in, make sure it's formatted the way you want (mkfs.ext4, etc.) and give it a label (e2label, etc.); then add a line like 'LABEL=whatever /mnt/whatever ext4 defaults 0 2'05:53

zetherooSo I updated the firmware on my mobile broadband device (EM7345) in Windows 10 and tested it in Ubuntu 18.04 and it worked like a charm. Back in Ubuntu 20.04 now and it's still not working09:59
apwzetheroo, did you update the firmware on the device or just in windows; as it is most likely loaded on initialisation on all OSs10:00
zetherooapw: on the device. As I said, it's working perfectly in Ubuntu 18.0410:02
apwzetheroo, for clarity it was not working in 18.04 then you updated it in windows 10, and then it was in 18.04?10:03
zetherooIn the info I posted above you can also see the new FW version:    firmware revision: FIH7160_V1.2_WW_01.1616.0110:03
zetherooapw: no. It wasn't working in 20.04 and it was complaining that there was no SIM inserted when there was, then after a lot of digging around online it became apparent that I had to upgrade the FW on the module, so I did that in Windows (no other way). Then I tested it in 18.04 and it worked.10:05
zetherooNow in 20.04 and no dice - but at least it's no longer complaining about there being no SIM10:05

apwzetheroo, it is important to have accurate information.  sounds like you should file a bug against linux with this information; get a dmesg of it in the working state in 18.04 and non-working state in 20.0410:07
apwwith luck there will be a clue in the difference10:07
apwonce you ahve a bug filed, mention it in #ubuntu-kernel by number10:08

pikapikaDo they have like some proprietary cable or interface through which the software communicates with the device>10:08

apwzetheroo, as noone wants to touch these kinds of broadband interfaces (due to the regulatory risk) they are normally exposed over a serial style port as a modem so i predict a driver difference in the kernel.  but without logs it will be near impossible to diagnose10:24

him-cesjf_Is there a loginctl/systemctl like command to turn off screen?11:58
tatertotzmost LCD "screens" have a power button to turn them "off"11:59

mra90how can I ask ping to show the connection proxy server and other connection details12:01
mra90my proxy server has changed, I have exported them in the local bash session but it looks like ping doesn't care about it and still use some others12:01
mra90even though echo $proxy_server shows correct ones12:01
tatertotzthen you might articulate that you have ubuntu on a "laptop" but don't want the screen to be on12:02

khurrami want to get REQUEST & RESPONSE from nginx before  RESPONSE is sent back , need help can anyone please throw light if this can be done and what could be the easiest way to achieve it12:04
him-cesjf_tatertotz:  My question was clear enough to understand that I was looking for a `command` irrespective of whether my system is a desktop/laptop/mobile. Try avoiding answering in quotes if you want to help. I find it rude. I found the answer anyway - `xset dpms force off`.12:06
tatertotz+1 for self sufficiency12:22
mra90how to force ping to show where it connects top12:28
mra90I mean I use proxy server but it doesn't show it12:28
mra90and of course 100% failes packets12:29
mra90because of that12:29
mra90so I want to see what proxy server it sues12:29

tatertotzmra90: do you know any details on the proxy you use?, it's hostname, ip, and what port?12:30
mra90sure I do12:30
mra90just want to print that in ping12:30
mra90wheree this tool is connecting to12:31
tatertotzmra90: ping command syntax, the IP/name that is to be pinged is provided to the command,12:32
mra90yes but it doesn't show the proxy it uses12:32
tatertotzmeaning if you ping x.x.x.x it's not going to show that you pinged y.y.y.u12:32
mra90base on this https://superuser.com/questions/175428/how-to-ping-when-behind-a-proxy12:33
mra90it looks liek we can not ping when behind the proxy12:33
mra90ok so wwhere should I change system proxy setting on ubuntu?12:34
tatertotzyou might need to admit what the real problem you thought you'd trouble shoot by ping12:34
mra90the real problem is no internet at all12:36
mra90so I was changing the proxy setting in local bash session and pinging for test12:36
mra90but it always fails12:36
mra90due to ping not using proxy I guess12:37
tatertotzmra90: you are chatting from the computer with connectivity problem right now? or chatting from another computer?12:37
mra90 /etc/environment - is it global/system proxy setting place12:37

multifractalWithin my monero wallet I have 2 accounts A and B. I need to send someone a payment of X coins, but each of these accounts holds less than X coins. But together they add up to more than X coins. My question: can I send the contents of account A to account B (by selecting account A, going to the send panel in the GUI, and inputting the address of account B, and sending the entire contents), so that all the coins are consolidated into12:38
multifractalaccount B? Then I have enough to make the payment of X to my friend.12:38
multifractaloh whoops sorry wrong channel12:38
tatertotzmra90: if you have access to the problematic computer right now, do you have any way of transferring trouble shooting info or logs to the computer you are chatting from?...like a working USB flash drive ?12:39
mra90tatertotz: sure but what logs/info wwould you like to see?12:40

tatertotzmra90: all is working without proxy? have you verified proxy is in production and operating as expected?12:48
mra90how can it work without proxy?12:49
mra90the whole point of proxy is provide the brige oterwise your reequest won't go outside12:49
tatertotzhmmm interesting, so you're in a non home/home office networking environment? the majority of home users do NOT need a proxy to use their internet service12:50
tatertotzheck even commercial environments exists that don't use a proxy12:51
tatertotzhave you contacted the IT or responsible party for your environment?....you probably should12:52
tatertotzactually you REALLY should12:52
tatertotzand if your IT doesn't support your Linux...you need to think about what impact that will have on your productivity.....you might need to sleep on it12:54

mefistofelesand then build/compile the package14:52
lotuspsychjemefistofeles: the guide you follow must specify wich libs its about no?14:52
mefistofeleslotuspsychje: not really, it just say "boost", http://vina.scripps.edu/manual.html#installation14:53

ses1984over the last few years i would get POST failures sometimes, but that was pretty much it, suddenly in the last month the POST failures became much more frequent and that's when it started freezing/rebooting sometimes15:53
lotuspsychjeses1984: if your system acts weird, there should be something logging somewhere15:54

EriC^^no, you can do it as the user20:31
Sven_vBhow do I check if a given username oder uid is a system user?20:32
tommy``that means that every reboot it launch the script right? But it get launched after or before login to desktop?20:33
EriC^^before tommy``20:33
EriC^^Sven_vB: by system user you mean in the sudo group?20:33
tommy``so maybe couldn't work because internet no working, EriC^^20:34
EriC^^tommy``: you could add the program to the startup apps program20:34
EriC^^it would start after logging in20:34
tommy``ah, how?20:34
Sven_vBEriC^^, nope, more like whether I can expect programs to treat that account as non-human.20:35
tributarianDoes anyone know where the repo is for cloud-images? I think I found a bug with the vagrant images, but I want to make sure.20:35
EriC^^there should be a program called 'startup applications' somewhere in your DE programs menu20:35
EriC^^tommy``: ^20:35
Sven_vBEriC^^, I had some vague recollection that userids up to 999 were reserved for daemons, maintenance and such20:36
tommy``checking now20:36
EriC^^right Sven_vB20:37
Sven_vBfound it, grep _SYSTEM_UID /etc/adduser.conf¶ FIRST_SYSTEM_UID=100¶ LAST_SYSTEM_UID=99920:38
Sven_vBso now I have to find a way to teach focal's pulseaudio to not auto-start for system users. I could add a drop-in to /etc/systemd/user/default.target.wants/pulseaudio.service with a condition, but which? man 5 systemd.unit explicitly warns that ConditionUser= is not useful for system services.20:41
Sven_vBoh maybe that means just "systems in the system.slice"20:42
Sven_vB*services in20:42
Sven_vBI think I solved it. :)21:03
jeffrey_fTrying to clear a windows password.  Need to mount the windows drive as read/write. It only allows read only.21:10
sarnoldjeffrey_f: I think one common cause of that problem is that hte windows machine that it was one didn't shut down, so the filesystem isn't in a consistent state21:11
sarnoldjeffrey_f: on windows these days 'shutdown' is more like a 'suspend', there's some way to turn that off; I think using the windows 'restart' option does that too, just once, which might be more convenient21:12
jeffrey_fhggdh: sarnold.  So, restart?21:13
sarnoldjeffrey_f: it's worth a try, anyway21:15

kamoricksHi, I'm trying to install software inside the docker image. I'm getting "Invalid cross-device link" when it's making backup links before installing new versions - is there a way to make these debs not do that, or do modify them such that they do `cp` instead of `ln`?21:22
sarnoldkamoricks: I'm not particularly versed in docker but that sounds a bit like you're holding it the wrong way around21:25
aroonithink i got it working via the command line; luckily there are many ways to do things on ubuntu21:33
arooni  / linux21:33
arooninow i'm constantly losing/regaining connection with the keyboard on ubuntu 20.04 :921:44
sarnoldheh :/21:48
Doc-SaintlyAny advice on how to get an integrated webcam working when nothing shows up in lspci, lsusb, or lshw?21:52
sarnoldtry different cables, plug it into other ports, flip power switches when it's attached vs before it's attached,,21:54
Doc-Saintlyactually, looking at dmesg I can see an AER on a pci device that's not being shown under LSPCI21:55
kamorickssarnold: Sure. The actual issue is that metacopy on overlayfs is causing / and modified files to exist on different filesystems, since they exist on different layers, but the deb packaging for the nvidia drivers is blissfully unaware of this so tries to hardlink packages for backup. Overriding the first doesnt' really work, since it's just a conflux of everything working as intended.22:01

kamoricks(you'd have a similar issue installing nvidia drivers on any system where / and /usr exist on different fses, but this isn't common enough for nvidia to care, I guess)22:04
truexfan81is there a single commmand i can type to make sure apt removes all nvidia packages? i'm switching to amd tomorrow  ubuntu 20.0422:06
kinghatif you are manually mounting a drive vs fstab, do you need to specify the disks file system?22:13
kinghatcan you just sudo mount /dev/sdh1 /mnt/disk1/?22:13
kinghateven if the drive is NTFS?22:13
truexfan81as long as ntfs-3g is installed you mount it like any other drive, the kernel will figure out the rest22:15
truexfan81also i figured out that if you create a mount point for it in your home directory and mount it there, you get full rw privs so you don't have to sudo22:15
truexfan81i have 3 ntfs drives, and i have fstab auto mounting them to mount points in my home directory22:16
truexfan81correction 422:17
kinghat$ mount /dev/sdh1 .temp-mount/22:18
kinghatmount: only root can do that22:18
truexfan81what i did was create directories with the same letter as the windows drive letter so C,E,F,H and so /home/user/C  etc works perfectly22:19
conrwhat chmod does a file need it to be so all members of the user group can delete the file?22:33
BochaI'm here because I have a problem with ALSA and I wanted to know if someone can help me22:36
sarnoldBocha: irc works best with specific questions22:48
sarnoldconr: deleting a file depends upon *directory* permissions22:48
conrsarnold: ok what are the dir perms needed?22:49
sarnoldconr: read, write, and execute; eg 770, 775, etc22:49
conrwhich column is group? 1-2-3... 2?22:50
sarnoldyes, it goes owner, group, other22:52
conrso 770 thanks!22:54
