waltmanI'm not sure if this is the best place to report this, but https://docs.lubuntu.net/lubuntu_installation_on_old_computers.html is very broken. I tried #lubuntu but they said they don't control that domain.00:58
JonnyGatorsI followed the directions, but ubuntu won't install on my computer.  This doesn't bode well if even the installer doesn't work right.00:59
JonnyGatorsI get a screen full of "/init: line 49: can't open /dev/sr0: No medium found"01:01
JonnyGatorswhat in the heck is that supposed to mean?01:01
JonnyGatorsI just want to run a darn installer and have it install.01:01
=== ZadPartout is now known as Nurse_
Bashing-omJonnyGators: "/sr0" is the DVD drive - likely a bad copy of the .iso to the medium.01:02
LambdaComplexJonnyGators: sr0 would normally be a cd/dvd drive01:02
LambdaComplexcertainly could be01:03
LambdaComplexor a bad download of the iso01:03
LambdaComplexi'd definitely check the iso checksum01:03
JonnyGatorsWeird, because I imaged a USB from an iso using rufus, like I've done many times for ISOs.01:03
JonnyGatorsiso checksum?01:03
ubottuLaunchpad bug 500822 in casper (Ubuntu) "/init: line 7: can't open /dev/sr0: No medium found" [Low,Triaged]01:04
LambdaComplexthis looks relevant01:04
LambdaComplex...also it's a decade old. nice01:04
sarnoldwaltman: unfortunately, that's a long-standing complaint :( a previous member of the lubuntu team is imho not acting responsibly; I don't know the history well enough to report it to someone else, but I've come away with the conclusion that it's best to ask for lubuntu help on irc and then go to wherever they say their stuff is :)01:06
JonnyGatorsHow do I check the iso checksum?01:06
LambdaComplexfrom windows? no idea :D01:06
JonnyGators.....of course not.....01:06
LambdaComplexi don't remember if it has that stuff built in. i'm thinking it doesn't and you'll have to download something01:07
LambdaComplexfrom linux... md5sum /path/to/file01:07
waltmansarnold: I'm not complaining. I was just trying to report a broken web page!01:07
sarnoldwaltman: hehe :) thanks for that :) it's just unfortunate that there's no good solution to it :(01:07
waltmanHuh. I figured the solution would be for whoever maintained the lubuntu.net domain to fix the page.01:08
sarnoldwaltman: it probably is, you could try emailing them and see how far you get. please be prepared to be dissapointed. :(01:08
LambdaComplexJonnyGators: okay so this sounds really weird but someone on that bug page said that swapping the USB ports used for the usb drive and the keyboard  fixed it for them01:08
waltmanWho is "them"?01:09
LambdaComplexworth a try i guess, considering it wouldn't take very long to test01:09
LambdaComplexand i see someone else says that the issue is due to the tool used to write the image to the usb (which i could totally believe)01:09
JonnyGatorsOk....the link with that bug seems to be what I'm experiencing, with it filling the page with that error.....but that pgae lists no fix, or way to get the install to work.01:09
JonnyGatorsSo.....what's the deal.....no ubuntu for my machine because of a decades old bug no one can be bothered to fix?01:10
waltmanIf they want to own lubuntu.me and disown lubuntu.net, it seems to me they're try to do some SEO to get their links above the other ones in web searches. But what do I know? :)01:10
sarnoldwaltman: heh, I'm sure they would like your help to get the old links scrubbed off the internet :)01:11
Bashing-omJonnyGators: See: http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows ; https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/CDIntegrityCheck .01:11
JonnyGatorsHmmm....I did try different usb ports, and my keyboard is on a slower usb port, so I don't want to do that necessarily.  Although....ok.....I'll play around with USB ports.01:11
waltmanOh well. I don't even run lubuntu. I thought I was just doing a good deed.01:15
sarnoldyou were :) you just didn't know the long and frustrating history with a previous member of the project :(01:16
=== zbenjamin_ is now known as zbenjamin
JonnyGatorsOk, different USB port, different error.01:27
JonnyGatorsSame bug probably01:27
JonnyGatorsRather annoying that an over 10 year old bug is preventing me from simply just installing this.01:27
JonnyGatorsAnd it seems no one has come up with so much as a explanation or solid workaround.01:28
th34lch3m1sthi all01:28
sarnoldJonnyGators: try a new memory stick perhaps?01:28
JonnyGatorsstick worked fine installing linux on my laptops.01:28
JonnyGators"unable to find a medium container a live file system"01:29
JonnyGatorstakes me to a prompt with yes or no, but my keyboard doesn't work at this point.01:29
JonnyGatorsSay what you will about microsoft....but at least they make a working installer.01:29
JonnyGatorsIsn't there any stable, consistent, way to just get a damn linux install to work?01:31
JonnyGatorsEvery time I try to do this, it's something.01:31

th34lch3m1stfile properties on nautilus: the checkbox near " execute as program" has three states? What does the dash-check mean?01:32
JonnyGatorsThere's an old joke that if apple made cars, they'd only drive on 10 percent of the roads.01:32
JonnyGatorsIf you can't make an OS that works on all the hardware out there....then find something else to do.01:32
Jordan_UJonnyGators: Lets stick to productive support discussion please. #ubuntu-offtopic is good for other chat.01:33
JonnyGatorsOk, still playing musical USB ports, and still getting errors.01:33
sarnoldJonnyGators: honestly from what I've seen so fr, it souds a lot more like your hardware is the issue :(01:33
sarnoldJonnyGators: try memtest86 or memtest86+? try another linux distro?01:34
JonnyGatorsBest I can figure, the errors suggest that once booting to the USB device, it stops seeing the media, the installers, the USB device.....not sure how that's possible since it gets that far off of the usb device.01:34
JonnyGatorsThis desktop has been running strong and solid for years on Windows.01:34
Jordan_UJonnyGators: Because the first portion of booting happens with disk reads being made through calls to the boot firmware, rather than native drivers.01:34
JonnyGatorsThis seems like a bug in the installer that breaks it's communication with the media.01:35
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators UEFI or BIOS?01:35
JonnyGatorsI've tried both, got the same results on both with the first 2 usb ports where I was getting the page of those 49 errors.01:35
JonnyGatorsI've been doing UEFI the most recent attempts.01:36
k_szeAnybody knows how I can input Chinese quotation marks in Ubuntu?01:36
k_szeI'm already using the Intelligent Pinyin input method, but I can't get Chinese quotation marks.01:36
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators the motherboard....it has uefi or bios?01:36
Jordan_UJonnyGators: Are you brought to a shell when booting fails?01:37
JonnyGatorsUh....I think so?  I get text errors, but I'm unable to type at the screen I'm at, but I'm not sure if that's because it's not recognizing the keyboard or what.01:37
JonnyGatorsIt's not frozen, it barks at me when I remove the usb jump drive to move it to another port before hitting the reset button.01:38
Jordan_UJonnyGators: Have you ever booted a GNU/Linux distro on this machine, and had working USB?01:38
JonnyGatorsI've not used linux on this machine ever.01:38
JonnyGatorsI built it initially as windows 7, and updated it to 10 at some point.01:39
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators with UEFI you just "unzip" the ISO on the pendrive and all works on every PC. Pendrive must be FAT32. If that doesn't work is your pendrive or your motherboard the problem, IMHO01:40
JonnyGatorsI used rufus, wrote the iso to usb.  Whoop...de...do ,blame it on the motherboard.  It's a motherboard, it works fine for windows, if linux doesn't like it ,that's a problem with linux.01:41
JonnyGatorsI mean, really....if the software has a problem with the motherboard, what am I supposed to do.....modify my motherboard to get around the programming that isnt' working right with it?  Or should the software be fixed to work properly with working hardware?01:42
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators try delete partitions and partition table on the pendrive, recreate a GPT partition table, and add 1 partition FAT32 formatted.01:42
th34lch3m1stSorry, dos partition table01:43
JonnyGatorsOk....get this.....01:43
JonnyGatorsred usb ports = the first error I listed that filled a page.  black usb ports = the recent error I listed.  Blue usb ports = win.01:43
JonnyGatorsLinux likes blue.01:43
JonnyGatorsI'll have to make a note of that.01:44
JonnyGatorslinux, however, does not like my mouse and keyboard....guess I need to move those over to a blue usb port01:44
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators coulb be a bad boot sector on the pendrive from previuos formatting/media-creation01:45
JonnyGatorsWell, that confirms it....moving the mouse/keyboard dongle to my other blue usb port, made them work01:45
JonnyGatorswhen installing ubuntu, it seems only my 2 blue usb ports work.  I hope the install process fixes it for the rest, I will need those.01:45
JonnyGatorsPerhaps the usb drivers on the install media need an update?01:46
xphacterthe blue ports are usb 3.001:46
JonnyGatorsYeah, and red are 3.101:46
JonnyGatorsodd that 3.0 good, 3.1 bad, when installing.01:47
=== sharpie_3 is now known as sharpie
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators all those usb 3 ports are embedded on the motherboard or they are expansion boards?01:48
JonnyGatorsall embedded.01:48
JonnyGatorsHuh....I did once add an expansion card, because I had lag problems with a usb sound input device, and the add on card resolved the lag issue.  Maybe gigabit mobos suck when it comes to usb ports.01:49
JonnyGatorsBut, that's in the media server to take backups to externals now.01:49
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators then recreate partion ---> MANUALLY on the pendrive, then---> MANULLY mount the ISO and copy the files. If doesn't work change pendrive and/or motherboard.01:51
JonnyGatorsanyways, anyone want to take bets whether or not I completely botch this attempt at a dualboot setup and need to restore from my backup?  And then bet on whether or not the restore actually works?  My backups are consistent.....the always work when tested, and never work when needed.01:51
JonnyGatorsRight....except that.....at the moment, I don't need to do that, the install is working on my 3.0 ports01:51
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators so what's the issue now?01:52
JonnyGatorsI don't know yet, heh.  Just worried that this partial usb issue may continue once the install is complete.  I'm hoping drivers are installed as part of the process that fix that.01:53
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators ines it start, it goes till the end, don't worry01:53
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators at the first reboot remove the pendrive, otherwise you enter the installation loop :D01:55
th34lch3m1stJonnyGators some disk or two for the dualboot?01:57
aroonii cant get bluetooth working on 20.04 at all :(01:58
JonnyGatorssame disk, I have a 1TB SSD, shrunk down the partition to free up 250GB for linux to give a dualboot a try.02:03
JonnyGatorsMy m-audio sound card hasn't had a driver update in like 10 years, and it seems to bluescreen windows 10 more and more with each update, which isn't convenient when streaming.02:04
JonnyGatorsSo, I could buy another piece of hardware that does the exact same thing as the working one, or find an OS that plays nice with it.02:04
JonnyGatorsI figure....doesn't hurt to try linux out.02:04
goddardI am so surprised my new monitor works02:05
JonnyGatorsI absolutely hate replacing working hardware over greedy companies refusing to support their products to force people into replacing things before they die.02:05
goddardI have a dual display port monitor hooked up and it actually works02:05

golden_ticketI had to change some stuff and build from source with the instruction of someone from #xen02:23

JonnyGatorsWhat in the heck?  I gotta spend hours futzing around with command line stuffs to do what Microsoft simplified into one simple setting?02:25
JonnyGatorsHow on earth has linux not set a text scaling setting?02:26
JonnyGatorsHow is that considered remotely acceptable for an OS these days?02:26
JonnyGatorsThis isn't going to work, I can't read a thing on my screen.02:26
golden_ticketJonnyGators, this OS is for programmers/people who like to tinker02:26
golden_ticketif you want something shiny and expensive go buy an OS02:26
JonnyGatorsI just want something that will work with my sound card and be stable.02:27
golden_ticketYou can scale everything on your desktop or manually change the font (like making your own)02:27
JonnyGatorsI get tinkering....but the ability to read the screen is a pretty basic requirement for an OS, I'd expect at least that much out of the box.02:27
JonnyGatorsscaling the desktop seems to only scale icons and icon text, the menu and everything else is still tiny02:28
goddardYou can scale bro02:28
golden_ticketYou could try changing the resolution?02:28
goddardi am scaling right now02:28

goddardJonnyGators: try to find display settings02:30
goddardor use Gnome Tweak02:30
sarnoldwhat desktop environment / widget set is ubuntu studio using? whatever it is using, look for those things in the arch wiki link https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HiDPI02:31
JonnyGatorsdisplay settings has resolution, but no scaling02:31
goddardim on kde neon right now, but you should have gnome tweaks installed02:32
goddarduse that02:32
goddardits easy to find02:32
JonnyGatorsUgh....see, this is why I never end up using linux.  I install it, and every little basic 2-10 second step in using windows, turns into 20+ minute programming excursions.  This is the most inefficient way to use a computer.02:32

JonnyGatorsOk, so I was able to install gnome tweaks, it opened after installing, found a font scale setting and adjusted it, nothing happened, no apply button, closed the window, but now I can't find it to reopen it.02:39
JonnyGatorsSearching gnome tweaks in the start menu doesn't bring it up, rather useless search02:40
JonnyGatorsWhy is it when software is installed, it doesn't leave me any simple way to reopen it?02:40
JonnyGatorsIt's not in recently used, it's not in all apps, it just up and vanished.02:40
pavlosthere may be a Utilities folder when gnome tweaks is02:40
golden_ticketYou can hit your windows key, search for the program, add it to your favorites and now it's nice and easy to open02:41
golden_ticketJonnyGators, Before you start trying to critique an OS perhaps you should learn how it works? lol02:41

JonnyGatorsI do not understand how anyone is supposed to use this thing if 20+ minutes later I'm still trying to figure out how to make text readable, when microsoft, detects these things automatiaclly, and has a simple easy to access setting if it doesn't.02:42
lotuspsychjeyou can talk there 24/702:42
JonnyGatorsI'm discussing a need for support, I can't read text on my screen.02:43
JonnyGatorsAnd the only way I've found to open gnome tweak, which hasn't scaled anything, is to go back into the software installer, and search for it, which gives me a launch button....it's not accessible anywhere from the menus.02:43
lotuspsychjeJonnyGators: asking support is writing 1 question all in one line then wait for volunteers to help you02:44
lotuspsychjeJonnyGators: to discuss about software into other channels please02:45
JonnyGatorshow do I get universal readable text in linux?02:45
pavlosJonnyGators: I went to tweaks, Fonts, Scaling factor and reduced it from 1.0 to .90 my display shows smaller text02:45
JonnyGatorsI have set that scaling factor up to 3.0, all text is still tiny.02:45
JonnyGatorsSo linux doesn't have a way to set readable text?02:48

lenswipeHey folks.02:50
JonnyGatorsA picture of the setting that I did find and that doesn't work on my machine isn't of much help, but I appreciate the thought.02:50

lenswipeI'm trying to install obs-studio (on debian) from the Ubuntu PPA. I can add the PPA to my system, but debian refuses to talk to it citing a missing  key. As best I can determine from this page: https://launchpad.net/~obsproject/+archive/ubuntu/obs-studio the PPA does in fact have a key so should I somehow be able to manually download it and install it?02:52
lenswipe...'scuise me. Not from the ubuntu PPA. From the OBS PPA...that happens to be targeting ubuntu02:53
goddardJonnyGators: don't make your life harder than it needs to be.  Follow a path some one else blazed if you aren't an expert.02:53
JonnyGatorsI just want to stream using my m-audio delta sound card without the risk of bluescreening.  Microsoft and m-audio have made that impossible.  I was hoping linux could help.02:56
goddardAre you using generic Ubuntu?02:57
goddardDid you download the ISO from this site? https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop/thank-you?version=20.04.1&architecture=amd6402:57
JonnyGatorsI was using ubuntu studio since my focus is on audio production.  I'm going to reinstall with that though ,and see if that scales better.  Or at all.02:58
goddardUbuntu Studio using XFCE and it is in my opinion old and not a good place to start.02:59
goddardStart with generic Ubuntu because you can install all the same software03:00
goddardor just #ubuntustudio03:00
goddardask them03:00
JonnyGatorsIf I install on top of the same partitions I created the last time I installed, will it wipe them, or should I remove and re-create the partitions?03:00
goddardIt depends, but I would just start fresh if you can.  Always make a backup and double check so you do not delete something you want to keep.03:01
JonnyGatorsYay!  Standard ubuntu has scaling.  I can see, I can see.03:29
JonnyGatorsNow for the million dollar question....how do I setup an m-audio delta 44 sound card to work?03:31

Alexandrovtry to search03:41
JonnyGatorssearching also brings up hdspconf03:43
JonnyGatorsbut nothing opens when I click on it.03:43
Alexandrovwhat version of Ubuntu are you using?03:44
JonnyGatorsHmmm....the sound settings sees something, it calls it Analog Output - ICE1712[Envy24]PCI Multi-Channel I/O Controller (M-Audio Delta 44)03:44
JonnyGatorsmost recent, just downloaded the iso today.03:45
JonnyGatorsBut, selecting that and testing, gives me no sound on any of the outputs03:45
Bashing-om!sound | JonnyGators03:46
ubottuJonnyGators: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - https://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.03:46
JonnyGatorsThis isn't a typical sound issue.03:47
pavlosis the sound card listed in the output of lspci03:48
pavlosa command you can type in a terminal03:49
JonnyGatorsMultimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies Inc. ICE1712 [Envy24] PCI Multi-Channel I/O Controller (rev 02)03:52
JonnyGatorsIdeally, it should show up as 2 stereo input devices for the 1/2 and 3/4, and 2 stereo output devices for the 1/2 3/403:52
JonnyGatorsBut then, I'd also need to setup a way to use the ASIO drivers.03:52
pavlosthereis another command, alsa-info does it detect your soundcard?03:58
JonnyGatorsThat doesn't seem to give me any useful information about anything.03:59
pavlosI guess you need to talk to ubuntustudio people how to configure your audio card04:00
pavlosI installed ubuntustudio 20.034 on a VM so I can look at the menus, there is a Ubuntu Studio Controls > Audio Setup that may help04:02
JonnyGatorsI just wiped my ubuntostudio install because it was suggested to just use the plain ubuntu....now I need to go back to studio, where I can't read?04:04
JonnyGatorsI found an envy24 control utility, and found that things were turned down and muted.  I now have level meters working when running sound tests on them, but....that's all it is, meters, I have no actual audio coming out the outputs.04:05

amazoniantoadEverything is super tiny04:07
JonnyGatorsUgh.....well, it seems this answers my question.....linux will not be a viable solution, the half assed attempt at a sound interface for this sound card is a complete failure in programming.04:08
JonnyGatorsPretty meters, nonsensical patching, no audio passed through.04:08
amazoniantoadI remember my first Ubuntu install04:08
JonnyGatorsNot sure what the programmers were going for there, but it certainly wasn't functionality.04:09

JonnyGatorsThat is something I absolutely must have.  If linux can't figure out how to use this device like windows does, linux can do nothing for me.04:10
amazoniantoadLol "like windows"04:11
JonnyGatorsThe concept of wanting linux to function like something that works and is user friendly is funny?04:12
JonnyGatorsBut, more specifically, I mean that windows automatically treats the input and output pairs as separate stereo inputs and outputs04:12

JonnyGatorsI need linux to treat this the same way04:13
JonnyGatorsI'm looking for support to get this sound card functioning like it was designed to.04:13
lotuspsychjeyou can stop trolling now JonnyGators04:13
JonnyGatorsI'm not trolling.  I have this sound card.  I can't figure out how to get it to set up the way Windows automatically sets it up.04:14
lotuspsychjeJonnyGators: i already told you to divive discussions from ubuntu support04:15
JonnyGatorsOk, to boil it down to a simple question, if I wanted to configure skype to use the line 3 and line 4 input and line 3 and line 4 output of my M-Audio Delta 44 sound card using ubuntu, how would I do that?04:15
JonnyGatorsDoes posing that question meet your channel rules?04:16
JonnyGatorsOk, I need to install citrix workspace app, the only download options for linux are debian packages, rpm packages, or tarball packages....how do I get one of those to work with ubuntu?04:21
lotuspsychjeJonnyGators: if you have a bit of respect, you should patient a bit after asking 1 question and not immediatly ask another04:22
JonnyGatorsI only have so much time available to stare at a screen with no response, I figured if the sound card issue was going to take a while to find some help on, I'd shift to a potentially easier topic.04:23

silv3r_m00nhi there10:02
silv3r_m00nhows is manjaro different from ubuntu ?10:02
guivercsilv3r_m00n, Ubuntu will have more software available.. has a larger community.. both are GNU/Linux so the majority of everything is the same (esp. if you know what you're doing)10:05
guivercUbuntu has more choice in your software stack age I believe too (along with other things)10:05
legreffieractually, no. with its aur side (like brew on mac or ports on freebsd), the software offer is way bigger on arch-related distribution imho10:06
silv3r_m00ni read that manjaro has rolling release thing, which means softwares keep updating to the newest all the time, unlike ubuntu where updates are made available only as long as distro is supported10:06
guivercsilv3r_m00n, Ubuntu has rolling rhina (a rolling release is available too)10:07
guivercs/rhina/rhino ^10:07
legreffieryou get tons of update all the time. keep in mind this will break some software at some point.10:07
guivercand refer legreffier's comment (arch' AUR) on software; I'll concede that10:08
legreffierthat's why it's not recommended for newer user or critical systems.10:08
legreffiertry both and find out what you like most. at the end of the day all popular distribution are equally good (or bad).10:09
Paddy_NIIs there any way to make the "Dock" auto hide always instead of just when a window is overlapping it?10:33
EriC^^Paddy_NI: type 'sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-ubuntu-dock' and then enable 'auto-hide the dock' then relogin in maybe10:36
Paddy_NIEriC^^, Hmm.. I think the default behaviour is to auto hide only when a window is either overlapping it or maximised. Otherwise it's on screen.10:37
Paddy_NIDash to dock might be what I am after10:37
EriC^^Paddy_NI: great :)10:48
Paddy_NIEriC^^, I am just very aware of how long I spend in front of my computer and that certain elements are static on screen pretty much all of the time.  This is not good if you own a monitor prone to screen burn in.10:49
EriC^^Paddy_NI: i see, yeah10:49
Paddy_NIThere should be three options for the default dock and panel. Always show, Autohide, and Overlap10:50
dob1hi, it is known which kernel will be installed in the next ubuntu release?10:50
jescisI've got this error from videolan's vlc 'Audio output failed: The audio device "default" could not be used: No such file or directory'! I'm running on Ubuntu 20.04 Dell Inspiron 3180 with AMD A6-9220e radion r4!10:51
EriC^^dob1: it's not known yet, but it might be kernel 5.8 depending on if it sticks to the schedule10:53
dob1EriC^^, it could be an older one otherwise ?10:54
Paddy_NIjescis, If you open a terminal and type "alsamixer" what does it say for "Card" and "Chip"?10:54
Paddy_NIjescis, Press enter after alsamixer of course10:55
jescisPaddy_NI: HDA ATI HDMI and chip: ATI R6xx HDMI10:58
Paddy_NIIn the "Audio" menu of VLC under "Audio Devices" which device are you currently using?11:00
Paddy_NIYou have an entry called "alsa"?11:01
jescisPaddy_NI:  Output module: Alsa audio output11:03
Paddy_NIjescis, I mean from the "Audio" menu. Not the preferences window11:03
jescisPaddy_NI: Audio device: default11:04
Paddy_NIjescis, Is there anything else there?11:05
jescisNot that I can see11:05
Paddy_NIDo you hear sound from other things like your browser etc?11:06
Paddy_NIMight it be the file you are trying to play?11:07
jescisThey're all mp4's on an external had drive11:08
Paddy_NIDoes any other type of file play in vlc?11:08
Paddy_NISay an mp3 etc?11:09
jescisNo it still doesn't work11:10
Paddy_NIjescis, Go into preferences > audio and change the output module to "automatic". Quit VLC and try it again11:11
Paddy_NIFailing that try using pulse11:12
jescisit works with automatic11:14
Paddy_NIExcellent :-)11:14
jescisPaddy_NI: it also works with pulse audio11:16
jescisPaddy_NI: is there a way to fix alsa audio output?11:20
Paddy_NIjescis, Why are you tying to specifically use alsa?11:28
apwcan you use alsa directly when pulseaudio is already attached to it ?11:28
Paddy_NII actually have to go now so I wont be much help, if you are still on later perhaps we can talk further jescis. Have a nice day.11:30
jescisapw: idk, but to answer Paddy's question, I want to use alsa because I want to have the volume stay at the same as I had it when I close then reopen vlc11:37
EriC^^dob1: currently it's at 5.6 i think11:38
EriC^^it might be 5.4 according to ubottu's data (/msg ubottu !info linux-generic groovy), maybe as in #ubuntu+1 they might know exactly11:39
EriC^^*ask in11:39
NuckStarrrjescis: opening and closing vlc will remember both volume and mute, and also repeat/shuffle, settings11:40
apwi am supprised that pulse is not maintaining volume etc but whatever floats your boat11:40
NuckStarrrregardless of alsa as a requirement11:40
NuckStarrrit does that even without alsa set11:41
jescisNuckStarrr: But the box to do it is greyed out when not using alsa!11:44
apwwhich makes sense i think, as pulse owns the mute and volume settings when in use11:45
apwso they should stay the same across vlc coming and going11:46
apwnow how vlc adjusts relative to the core is an interesting question as that has11:46
apwits own per-app relative volumn slider etc11:46
apwin pulses mind11:47
jescisI mean, alsa was working awhile ago, then it stopped! I don't know why though?11:49
apwmay depend if pulse has needed to open its output to make a sound11:49
apwi vaguely recall (experience from when pulse was new) that it doesn't open the output device till it needs to output something11:50
dob1EriC^^, I try to task there, thanks. I was hoping for a 5.8 at least for amd ryzen support11:55

BWestOzwhere is the apache2 executable installed on ubuntu?13:02
EriC^^BWestOz: /usr/sbin/apache213:03
BWestOzthank you eric13:04
BWestOzI don't understand how user www-data has permissions to allow access to files upon web requests13:06
EriC^^BWestOz: no problem13:06
NuckStarrrBWestOz: you can type ' which apache2 '13:06
BWestOzEric, I'm trying to figure out the best way to set up a LAMP server re users/permissions.13:07
BWestOzwhy is it necessary to chown a CMS directory to www-data if apache is owned by root?13:08
cluonbeamBWestOz: It's not a question of who owns the executable.13:08
EriC^^BWestOz: i'm not sure, but i think it's that outside user connects with apache2 which has the www-data user, and since the file is +r by www-data it can read and show its contents13:08
cluonbeamBWestOz: It's a matter of under what user that service runs. If you start apache and look for it in a full ps listing, you'll see that it's running as www-data.13:08
BWestOzcluonbeam, thank you that's right. How is it run as a different user to the owner?13:09
cluonbeamBWestOz: Any service can be executed as any user depending on how the service is launched.13:10
BWestOzso how do web requests result in apache being run as www-data13:10
cluonbeamWeb requests don't result in apache being run at all.13:11
=== beaver|bbl is now known as beaver
cluonbeamApache is running already, listening for inbound requests.13:11
BWestOzwhat's the ps flag to see all processes?13:11
cluonbeamWhen a request is received, it accesses data as necessary according to the request; as the service is running under the www-data user, that is the effective permissions that apache has - whatever the www-data user has.13:11
BWestOzwell thanks cluonbeam although I don't really understand how it all works13:13
cluonbeamTo answer your question, the contents of the /var/www/html directory should be owned by root, NOT by www-data.13:14
BWestOzif I do a ps -A I get about 5 apache2 processes13:14
BWestOzwhen I've installed CMS's a quick and dirty way of getting the things to work has been to chown /var/www/html/<cms dir> to www-data. That's wrong is it?13:15
cluonbeamBWestOz: Yes.13:15
EriC^^BWestOz: "ps aux" gives a nice view of the processes and owners, cpu and mem usage13:15
cluonbeamBWestOz: That makes everything under that directory writable by apache, which is a security issue.13:16
BWestOzso how should CMS write access be enabled?13:16
cluonbeamOnly the locations that SHOULD be written to by apache should be owned by www-data.13:17
cluonbeamAnything else should be left as owned by root.13:17
EriC^^BWestOz: i think you have to make the files +r by all, or add www-data as an ACL with only +r13:17
cluonbeamThe default umask of 022 is sufficient.13:18
EriC^^maybe he is extracting it cause he said by default it isnt working13:18
EriC^^or something of the matter13:19
BWestOzWordpress needs to be able to create directories and upload files in various subdirectories13:19
cluonbeamAnd those should be the ones owned by www-data, yes.13:19
BWestOzEric - thank yes ps aux shows some of the apache2 processes as owned by www-data13:19
cluonbeamThose are the actual worker processes. The one owned by root is essentially a supervisor process that spawns workers and other management functions, but does not handle requests.13:20
cluonbeamThe root-owned process is also the one that "owns" port 80. Ports below 1024 require root or special privileges in order to bind to.13:21
BWestOzI think it's wp-content that I chowned to www-data13:21
cluonbeamThere are other ways of achieving this, but in apache's case, that's how that works.13:21
BWestOzso a request spawns an apache process owned by www-data?13:22
cluonbeamApache is a very large system.13:22
cluonbeamBasically, an inbound request is handed off to one of the workers for processing.13:23
cluonbeamThose workers are already running. How many of them apache starts is dependent on configuration and the current demand,.13:23
BWestOzcluon, oh, i see13:24
BWestOzso how can I configure ftp to work with wordpress. Is there some way I can give vsftpd www-data priviliges?13:25

BWestOzany takers on the best way to set up ftp with wordpress on LAMP?13:29
TJ-I missed the earlier discussion, but is webDAV something you could utilise for adding content ?13:29
cluonbeamOr using WordPress' own interface13:30
TJ-I assumed that had already been deemed inapropriate13:30
krumelmonsterThere seems to be a problem with xubuntu-20.04.1-desktop-amd64 installer concerning lvm. Yesterday I had the installer crash on the first couple tries when choosing lvm option (no encryption), now, on another device, creating ext4 for / on partition 1 of lvm vg vgxubuntu takes ages (I doubt it will finish at all).13:31
BWestOzcluonbeam, that's what I mean. I can get ftp workign no probs but I'm not sure about how to set permissions so it'll work seamlessly in wp-admin for update etc. I have to somehow give ftp permissions to write to wp-content13:31
krumelmonsterAlso: How can I cancel and restart a running installation?13:32

golden_ticketThat the trackpad stops working, keyboard still works, so does a mouse if I plug one in.15:35
leftyfbTJ-: how? This tells me it wasn't possible 10 years ago http://web.archive.org/web/20110925231256/http://kerneltrap.org/mailarchive/linux-ath5k-devel/2010/3/21/6871733    I have tried both ifupdown and netplan15:35

Sven_vBamazoniantoad, can you find a pattern of what the visible mouse cursor does when you move the physical mouse in each axis direction (up, down, left, right)?15:41
Sven_vBleftyfb, I think I found a package for that network bridging some days ago, I'll check.15:42
amazoniantoadSven_vB it jumps diagonally15:42
Sven_vBamazoniantoad, is it a direct jump or does it move smoothly?15:43
amazoniantoadDirect jump15:43
Sven_vBamazoniantoad, if you move the physical mouse veeeery slowly, does it become a bit more smooth, like several smaller jumps?15:44
TJ-leftyfb: you'd use separate MAC addresses for the bridge, wlan, and ethernet and have the DHCP lease mediated on MAC15:45
amazoniantoadSven_vB it is kinda hard to reproduce because it's almost random. But I cannot (atm) see it jumping around at all if I move the cursor very slowly15:46
amazoniantoadNo it doesn't15:46
amazoniantoadIt still jumps around like before15:46
leftyfbTJ-: got some documentation on this? I understand the idea about the mac's, but I can't even get that far15:46
cicdcIs there a viable replacement for system-config-lvm or kvpm on ubuntu 20.04?15:46
Sven_vBamazoniantoad, can you try another mouse? maybe the hardware has a problem.15:47
amazoniantoadSven_vB I have a mouse in atm and there is no problem with it. This problem didn't exist before installing xen15:47
Sven_vBamazoniantoad, I see. in that case it might be that Xen prioritizes another VM at the "wrong" time and thus the VM with your graphical mouse cursor doesn't get allocated CPU power quickly enough to immediately react. when it gets the CPU again, all the mouse position updates arrive within a fraction of a second.15:50
amazoniantoadSven_vB there is no other vm running15:51
TJ-leftyfb: as I picture it, you'd bridge wlan and ethernet on DeviceA normally (layer 2) so only the bridge interface requests a DHCP lease. Device B connected to the ethernet port should then make a DHCP request which should be broadcast out on all bridge ports and the DHCP server should respond as normal15:51
Sven_vBamazoniantoad, I don't really know Xen, but maybe it has its own housekeeping to do every now and then.15:51
amazoniantoadSven_vB can we try to continue diagnosing the issue? I'm not sure if it is actually related to xen but I thought I should make note of it to you15:52
leftyfbTJ-: ok, so when you said it was possible you were guessing based on theories. There's no documentation or indication that this works anywhere, and in fact a post on a major kernel driver mailing list saying it is no longer supported and I think never actually worked in station mode to begin with15:54
Sven_vBamazoniantoad, there's also a possibility of a graphics driver problem. if the graphics driver isn't made for cooperation with Xen, it might even be additionally confused by that. when the mouse jumps again, maybe there's something in syslog or dmesg?15:54
amazoniantoadSven_vB how do I check those?15:55
TJ-leftyfb: I cannot imagine what STA mode would have to do with it15:55
leftyfb"Bridging doesn't work on the station side anyway because the 802.1115:55
leftyfbheader has three addresses (except when WDS is used) omitting the15:55
leftyfbaddress that would be needed for a station to send or receive a packet15:55
leftyfbon behalf of another system."15:55
leftyfbTJ-: regardless, unless you have some documentation or proof this works anywhere, theories do not help me. I've been at this for a while now with no luck15:56
Sven_vBamazoniantoad, in one shell, "dmesg --follow", and in another, "tail -F /var/log/syslog"16:04

Can anyone point me in the right direction?16:14

shadow255are you able to use the mouse in windows on both monitors?16:45
RoseBusbut only if i alt-tab to the window i want16:45
shadow255got it, so it can't control window focus or any of the UI elements16:46
RoseBusi tried playing minecraft in windowed mode instead of full-screen mode16:46
RoseBusbut that didn't help16:46
RoseBusand it doesn't occur all the time16:47
RoseBussometimes i can play minecraft just fine without it occuring16:47
shadow255it would be far too simple if it was consistent, alas16:47
RoseBustaking screen shots with hotkeys could _possibly_ be part of it16:48
RoseBusokay bbl16:48
shadow255RoseBus: wait, one more question if you have a moment16:49
shadow255can you even manage to log out of your session when this starts happening rather than reboot?16:49
RoseBusi can log out using crtl+alt+delete only16:49

errstsarnold I didn't do anything special. I'm not that familiar too. I've just encrypted (LUKS) entire disk and tbh I don't remember whether I choose or not swap space.19:26

errstsarnold Yes. This was easier : )19:57
javi404oerheks: I think by default, live cd should have mdadm utils installed19:57
javi404that should fix it19:57
oerhekslive server iso?19:57

javi404other issue is, the installer failes at the end installing grub, and other than killing it, it won't allow you to ignore installing grub.19:58
oerheksi would skip softraid.19:58
javi404oerheks: yes, the live cd.19:58
cluonbeamoerheks: mdadm is just fine.19:58
javi404oerheks: why skip it?19:58
cluonbeamoerheks: desktop or server live?19:58
javi404cluonbeam: agreed19:58
javi404cluonbeam: both19:58
cluonbeamjavi404: server live supports what you're doing out of the box.19:58
javi404cluonbeam: i can test, i assumed desktop was server + more user packages, gui, etc.19:59
javi404are they not cut from same cloth?19:59
cluonbeamThe installer is not, no.19:59
oerheksthere is server and live server19:59
cluonbeamdebian-installer vs subiquity.19:59
javi404cluonbeam: oerheks, so which installer supports creating GPT partitiontables (both from what I have seen) and raid1 installs for system?20:02
javi404example of how I am setup: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/HVD4ghkHS2/20:03
javi404oerheks: cluonbeam: ^20:03
cluonbeamjavi404: subiquity - aka ubuntu live server installer. debian-installer will create a gpt IF the disk exceeds 2tb in size.20:04
oerheksGPT is supported on UEFI machines.20:04
cluonbeamGPT is also supported on BIOS systems.20:04
javi404cluonbeam: exactly20:04
javi404DOS partiton tables are outdated.20:04
oerheksi am not sure about legacy bios, but maybe you are right20:05
javi404even for old machines pre UEFI, why not use GPT?20:05
cluonbeamThat may be true, but they're often still sufficient.20:05
cluonbeamoerheks: I am.20:05
javi404oerheks: typing to you from legacy bios right now20:05
sarnoldjavi404: did you forget to create EFI partitions?20:05
cluonbeamAs long as you create a BIOS boot partition (EF02), legacy systems can boot.20:05
cluonbeamjavi404: Insisting on gpt in this case may be causing you more grief than is needed.20:06
ses1984i came back to my computer to find it frozen at the desktop, it required a hard reboot, where would i look for logs about this, i dont see anything in dmesg or kern.log20:06
javi404sarnold: see my pastbin above, it works, issue is you have to manually do the helping of grub install.20:06
sarnoldjavi404: to boot UEFI systems you need an EFI partition somewhere; it'll show up like:20:07
sarnold├─nvme0n1p2 259:1    0   512M  0 part  /boot/efi20:07
cluonbeamsarnold: You're assuming that he's trying to boot via UEFI.20:07
sarnoldcluonbeam: indeed; (a) that's usually a good idea, the legacy/csm support is pretty cranky (b) wanting a gpt partition table suggested to me that javi404 probably is doing uefi boots elsewhere..20:08
cluonbeamsarnold: (a) true, and (b) he just seems to want gpt regardless of it providing any real benefit in this case.20:09
sarnoldcluonbeam: aha :)20:09
javi404sarnold: im aware, this is a non UEFI system, bios boot only.20:10
cluonbeamThen why are you so dead-set on using gpt? "It's newer" isn't a functional justification.20:11
javi404it is the combination of gpt and mdraid that breaks grub at the end of the installer.20:11
Doc-SaintlyI'm trying to update to kernel 5.8.7 using ukuu. I swear I just ran the function to install it and saw it listed, then restarted, but the kernel didn't change.20:11
javi404cluonbeam: because there is a backup gpt table at the end of the disk, safe.20:11
Doc-Saintlyand now when I run ukuu and list, it only shows up to 5.7.1, I'm sure I saw 5.8* entries before20:11
Doc-Saintlyis there a reason for that?20:11
javi404i like to build HA systems.20:11
cluonbeamThe only time your partition table is going to get corrupted is if the disk fails; the presence of a backup table isn't going to help you.20:12
cluonbeamYou're overcomplicating this, quite frankly.20:13
oerheksDoc-Saintly, interesting, mainline kernels are for testing, without support20:13
ubottuThe kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds20:13
javi404cluonbeam: and that is why im in this business.20:13
javi404cluonbeam: to go over the top when it comes to N+120:13
cluonbeamjavi404: I'm in this business as well, as chance would have it. I spend my time on ACTUAL solutions that provide tangible benefits.20:13
cluonbeamjavi404: But, have fun.20:14
oerheksukuu is a 3rd party tool, it used to be paid?20:14
javi404cluonbeam: if this disk right now dies, even swap is raid. and we will keep chatting short of a power issue (UPS solves that) and maybe a lightening strike or cpu/motherboard/memory failure.20:14
javi404cluonbeam: :-)20:14
Doc-Saintlyoerheks, It's the last thing I want to do, but I can't find another reasonable way to get the atom camera driver: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Linux-5.8-Media-Updates20:14
cluonbeamjavi404: Besides, overcomplication doesn't provide redundancy or resilience. Often, simplicity is far more useful.20:15
javi404cluonbeam: what is complicated about a system on software raid using a modern partition table format?20:16
sarnoldjavi404: so, uh, it's been *ages* since I've used a legacy boot, but can legacy systems even boot GPT? or do you need to a old-school mbr 'mirror' of the gpt?20:17
javi404sarnold: they can20:18
Doc-Saintlyor is there another way to get ipu3-cio2 / ipu3-csi2 devices (webcam) working?20:18
sarnoldgoogling for this just shows a bunch of results about things microsoft won't support, hehe20:18
cluonbeamsarnold: Yes, they can.20:18
oerhekssarnold, i am also not certain about gpt and legacy20:18
javi404sarnold: let me show you what the disk looks like20:18
cluonbeamsarnold: It requires the presence of a BIOS boot partition (gptfdisk presents this as type EF02) for GRUB to use in lieu of an MBR.20:18
cluonbeamBut, again, this is an unnecessary overcomplication for disks smaller than 2TB.20:19
javi404sarnold: see this: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/vDhxzxG2h6/20:19
javi404you need a bios boot partition20:19
javi404grub installs its binary on it20:19
javi404it only needs to be 1MB but i like to future proof.20:20
javi404cluonbeam and I disagree, and that is ok.20:20
javi404cluonbeam, what if I migrate the system and move it to a 2+TB drive?20:20
cluonbeamThen you're going to have to repartition the target disk anyway.20:21
cluonbeamThis is quite silly.20:21
cluonbeamAnd grub's embedded size is less than half a kilobyte. "Future proofing" is also silly.20:22
cluonbeamI'm going to bow out of this conversation; giving information that I know is going to be rejected out of hand for no discernable reason is a poor use of time.20:23

pedahzurMy prompt in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades. is set to "lts"20:28
pedahzurWhy is it not finding 20.04.1?20:28
ubottuRegular upgrades from the last but one LTS release to the latest LTS release, 20.04 "Focal Fossa", are enabled days or weeks after 20.04.1 is released. This delay helps to ensure that any lingering issues are resolved before people upgrade production systems. If you'd prefer to upgrade now, use sudo do-release-upgrade -d20:29

gimzmoeI'm more concerend why it's now spamming20:31
pedahzuroerheks: OK, thanks. I was reading https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-upgrade-from-ubuntu-18-04-lts-to-20-04-lts-today  "The Ubuntu update manager will start showing a prompt for an upgrade to 20.04 once the first dot release of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (i.e. 20.04.1) is released. The typical timeframe for this is around three months after the official release."  So it's been three months and 20.04.1 is out...so was confused. :)20:31
cluonbeamfail2ban is of very limited use these days. Most of your invalid auth attempts are going to come from different sources.20:31
sarnoldjavi404: so, you maintain both the gpt and the mbr partition on these disks? I guess once a partition table is created you never need to change it again, but it still seems funny to me. :)20:31
oerhekspedahzur, that blog stated the same, use -d if you cannot wait20:32
oerheksi would wait, especially with LVM20:32
pedahzuroerheks: Gotcha. But it said "The Ubuntu update manager will start showing a prompt for an upgrade to 20.04 once the first dot release of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (i.e. 20.04.1) is released. " so, that seems to not be quite correct, because 20.04.1 *has* been released.20:32
pedahzuroerheks: Ewww...what nasty bugs are in LVM?20:33
oerhekspedahzur, at the time of writing of that blog, that path was expected.20:33

Woettomreyn: how is his question related to the virtualization in the first place?21:22
tomreyngimzmoe: i can't really guess what changed though. maybe you installed a firewall and thus iptables messages are going to the console?21:23
Woetgimzmoe: put the messages you're getting on a pastebin and link it here21:23
tomreynWoet: gimzmoe mentioned a recent change in behaviour without them changing things. my theory there was that this is indeed a container system and the host had changed to a different kernel image.21:24
gimzmoeit's not the content of the messages that's bothering me, it's the fact that the messages render unsolicited on ssh session21:24
Woettomreyn: most of the time when people say "nothing changed", something definitely changed.21:24
Woetgimzmoe: I know, and the content of the messages might tell us why they're in your console.21:24
gimzmoeWoet: I'm sure something did, it might have been something I did, or something the provided did to my VPS for me.  I really don't know, I was having a hard time looking while the messages interupted every commandline21:25
tomreynWoet: in my experience, most of the time when the term 'VPS' is used to refer to virtual server, this is containers, not VMs. YMMV.21:25
Woettomreyn: oh, yea, it's the opposite for me :)21:25
tomreynWoet: let's do the meta discussion in #ubuntu-discuss if there's be more, please, just so we keep it clean here.21:26
Woetgimzmoe: speaking of other channels, #ubuntu-server might be a better place for this.21:26
tomreyn(and thanks for your comments)21:26
tomreynpedahzur: ubuntu bugs are tracked on launchpad.net - you could look it up there.21:31
JonnyGatorsFixed the USB ports....gigabyte has some stupid bios settings.  But I can't get citrix workspace to install.  Someone here told me last night that debian packages should work with ubuntu, but when I try to run the package, the software app tells me it's not supported.21:34
sarnoldyou could install a debian instance in lxd and run it that way, perhaps?21:37
tomreynJonnyGators: i don't know what exactly you were told, but most of the time, or generally, you shoould not mix .deb packages from different linux distributions21:39
JonnyGatorsOk....then not the debian package.  I still need to get citrix workspace installed on here though, but the other 2 options are rpm package or tarball package, don't have a clue what to do with them.21:41
tomreynhmm, then *maybe* .deb *can* be right in this case. you'll need to check the documentation citrix provides, including which linux distributions they support it on. or, as sarnold suggested, use an alternative software.21:43
JonnyGatorsI really can't find much in the way of information on linux support, just downloads for the packages....are you saying citrix provided useless crap that won't work on ubuntu?21:47
JonnyGatorsI find this ridiculous.....download a windows installer, it works.  Look for a linux installer, 3 files, that don't work, and you have to dig through documentation that doesn't exist to figure anything out?21:48
JonnyGatorsHeck, I can't even figure out how to get a shortcut on the desktop - the concept of drag and drop, or rightclick and have an option to add to desktop, seems to be lost on whoever designed this.21:48
tomreynJonnyGators: no, i wasn't meaning to say that "citrix provided useless crap that won't work on ubuntu", just that you're trying to use a software that's not part of ubuntu (alternatives should exist in ubuntu, though), and thus can't be reasonably supported here.21:49
JonnyGatorsIt's just frustrating that it feels like linux was intentionally designed to be as illogical and unfriendly as possible.  I don't get why things weren't setup to just work, we certainly have the technology and ability available to us today to do that.21:50
tomreynlinux distributions form a much more diverse ecosystem than windows does (there is just one of it, with different versions).21:51
tomreynlet's more to #ubuntu-discuss, if you would like to discuss ubuntu, or to ##linux if you'd like to discuss the linux kernel and linux distributions in general21:51
JonnyGatorsI was hoping to get some basic functionality on my machine, I'm just....every time I try this it's like banging my head against a brick wall.21:52
truexfan81how do you remove i386 packages with apt? libnvidia-compute-450/focal,now 450.66-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 i386 [installed,automatic] to be more specific21:53
truexfan81i have all nvidia packages removed except that one21:54
truexfan81can't figure out how to remove that one21:54
tomreynapt purge libnvidia-compute-450:i38621:54
truexfan81:i386 thats what i was missing thank you a ton21:55
tomreynyou're welcome21:55
jpdsJonnyGators: When it comes to proprietary software lik Citrix, it really is up to the vendor to provide good Linux support21:55
jpdsJonnyGators: There's nothing Ubuntu can change about that21:55
truexfan81if you are wondering why i'm removing the nvidia stuff, i'm prepping the system for a switch to an amd 5700xt21:55
summonnerJonnyGators - you might need a different desktop environment or possibly a different distro if that's what you're seeking. With everything, Linux has always been shell-centric, desktops are a "nice-to-have"21:56
truexfan81tomreyn: all nvidia packages are removed, anything else i need to do before i power off and swap gpus?21:56
tomreyntruexfan81: i'm not very familiar with changes nvidia packages make to your system, so can't really comment there.21:57
summonnertruexfan81, you might want to make sure it works with the default drivers first before you swap GPUs - just thinking that you want to only change 1 step and not 2 steps (does that make sense?)21:57
tomreyntruexfan81: if everything was properly packaged in .deb's and you removed and nvidia packages you should be good to go.21:57
truexfan81sudo apt list --installed | grep nvidia lists nothing21:58
tomreyntruexfan81: apt-forktracer lets you review packages which are installed from unknown apt repositories21:58
summonnertruexfan81, so reboot and see if your X starts up normally without the vendor-specific drivers21:58
tomreynyou also should not have a static xorg.conf anywhere below /etc/X1121:59
truexfan81well i know the nvidia packages blacklist nouveau, what i don't know is if they remove the blacklist when you remove them, so i may find myself unable to boot with the nvidia card, unless i figure out all the files i need to check for said blacklist22:00
summonneryou just won't be able to access video resolutions higher than defaults (800x600/1024x768)22:01
tomreynyou may also want to check how you booted previously:   cat /proc/cmdline22:01
truexfan81there is something i could do to guarantee it boots22:02
tomreynthere shouldn't be extra options such as nomodeset22:02
truexfan81i could sudo systemctl setdefault multiuser.target lulz22:02
tomreynyou haven't told us about anything you did that would prevent it from booting.22:02
summonnerand put the nouv driver back    sudo apt install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau ( I think that's right?)22:03
tomreynif you end up on a black screen you can always reboot to !recovery22:03
ubottuIf your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode22:03
summonnerand check also the      lsmod | grep nouveau22:03
truexfan81well if nouveau is still blacklisted, it will hang when trying to load nouveau from what i've seen previously22:03
JonnyGatorsdesktops are nice to have...huh.....interesting philosophy on computers.22:03
truexfan81kk will do that22:03
truexfan81summonner: no output from that command22:04
tomreynJonnyGators: please note this very channel (as i mentioned, there ar eothers you could also join), is strictly about ubuntu Q&A22:04
summonnertruexfan81,    what does    sudo apt search nouveau   give you?22:04
truexfan81also if i wanted to nomodeset boot how would i do that when using systemd boot?22:05
summonnertruexfan81,   don't paste/just correct what I wrote I mean22:05
tomreyntruexfan81: this channel only supports ubuntu, not your derivative22:05
tomreyn(i think we told you before)22:06
summonnernomodeset - press e to edit your grub options on boot and pop that after the options ro quiet splash22:06
summonnerplaying around with the grub config for a once or twice boot seems like a waste of time22:07
xbfrogDo you know any website that has instructions to install an ssd in a laptop with ubuntu?22:26
xbfrogsamsung only supports windows22:27
jeremy31xbfrog: it shouldn't be any different than a HDD22:27
xbfrogthen i wonder why they send an instruction manual that must be 40 pages long22:27
sarnolddo you mean, "how can I move all my data from an hdd to an ssd with very little effort"? or adding another drive to a computer that's got drive bays? or ..22:28
jeremy31xbfrog: I am using a Samsung SSD 860 EVO now22:28
xbfrogmove all my complete so to the ssd22:28
xbfrogjeremy31:  thats what i bought22:28
jeremy31clonezilla on USB22:29
jpdsxbfrog: It doesn't matter, Ubuntu will recognize the drive22:29
xbfrogit was frustrating to get instructions in mouse print and told by samsung support the only instructions were in the box22:30
xbfrogok i'll try clonezilla22:31
sarnoldjeremy31: clonezilla looks useful22:31
xbfrogi know i could just put in the drive and start over but i have countless hours of setups and tweeking i'd hate to loose22:32
xbfrogok thanks22:32
jpdsxbfrog: In that case, you have backups, in case your current drive just suddenly dies22:33
xbfrogya i was using deja dup but it seems rather short of backing up all data, it just wants to backup the home dir.22:33
xbfrognot many options22:34

WalterWhitesCookMy bluetooth headphones work on Iphone, windows, and android, but have a low quality connection on Ubuntu. Any ideas?23:11
=== pauljw_18 is now known as pauljw
sarnoldWalterWhitesCook: bluetooth has a lot of protocols, and the linux bluetooth implementation doesn't have anywhere near as much support as the other vendors; in short, no one has written support for better protocols23:13
WalterWhitesCooksarnold: makes sense23:13
sarnoldWalterWhitesCook: maybe there's some other reason for your problems, but if you check the profile used, you'll probably see the other vendors using a nice one, and linux connections not23:13

zenguitarJust wondering if anyone can help out here. I am running ubuntu-studio 20.10 alpha which is working great except that it cannot detect hotplug USB devices. It is new PC build with UEFI BIOS, the Logitech USB Unifier receiver works in the front USB 2.0 port (but nowhere else) and when I plug in my MIDI M-Audio Keystation Pro 88 it is not detected (dmesg has nothing for it)23:36
zenguitarI checked with USB drives too, plugged in and nothing in dmesg etc.23:37
zenguitarIt is multi-boot PC and these things work on Windows 10. However I also have Manjaro Linux on this box and it has the same USB detection problem as UStudio.23:38
sarnoldzenguitar: do these devices work well on other computers? have those cables worked well with other devices? do those devices work if you plug them into other ports?23:38
zenguitarAny ideas? I checked the UEFI BIOS settings but they all seem to be good.23:38
zenguitarYeah the MIDI keyboard, USB drives etc. all work fine on Windows 10 on same PC and on my linux laptop23:39
zenguitarThe devices still don't work if I plug them in other ports (I'm using a powered USB hub too which works fine normally)23:40
zenguitarThe weird thing is if I take out the Logitech receiver and plug it into the front USB3 port it doesn't work - plug it back into the USB2 port and it works with info in dmesg23:41
zenguitarThis is driving me nuts!  Ha ha23:41
sarnoldzenguitar: how are you testing 'not detected'? does lsbusb show anything?23:42
zenguitarsarnold: breakthrough! don't know why I didn't think of this before - I plugged the powered USB hub into the USB 2.0 front port and bingo all devices detected. It must be something to do with the internal cabling on the motherboard...I'll open her up and check it today.23:51
zenguitarweird though, it works when I am logged into Win10...23:51
