sharpninjaHello.  I'm having a problem with 20.04.  My battery ran out today and after starting up it will not get beyond a black screen with mouse cursore and text cursor in top left.  I am using a live distro to try to get it working.  What do I need to do?00:58
guivercsharpninja, I would `fsck` (file system check) your partitions, you can use kde partition manager, gparted or other tools if you prefer GUI tools to commands01:00
Bashing-omsharpninja: A loss of power often keaves the file system in an incinsusyent state. Were me I would run a file system check from the liveUSB on the target hard drive.01:02
dabaRYou guys still here?01:02
dabaR!usbstick01:02
sharpninjaboth / and /boot check out ok01:03
sharpninjaMaybe try switching display managers?  I have both gnome and kde installed01:04
sharpninjaHow do I do that?01:04
Bashing-omsharpninja: ^^ the CLI method is to know the target ' sudo fdisk -lu ' ;and then ' sudo fsck /dev/<target_partition> ".01:04
dabaR60Hi. I'm looking for a good set of instructions for installing onto a USB stick01:05
dabaR60Found it by asking the bot. Thanks!01:06
Bashing-omsharpninja: I expect the DE selection to be at the login screen - password - gear icon. under the icon should be a drop down with all the available desktops.01:07
sharpninjaI'm not getting to the login screen01:07
Bashing-omsharpninja: Ouch - grub broken ? In the liveUSB boot menu is "Boot first hard drive" - what results in this attempt ?01:09
sharpninjaGrub is not broken.  It boots with logo, then goes black with mouse cursor and the text cursor in top left01:11

ubottusharpninja: Systems with certain graphics chipsets may not boot properly out of the box. "Temporarily Add a Kernel Boot Parameter for Testing" as discussed at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBootParameters to add the "nomodeset" parameter there.01:12

sharpninjais there a way to see all files modified today on a partition?01:25
Bashing-omsharpninja: One could do something like ' find ~/ -mmin -10 -type f ' once you ate booted into the install - else there is the full change root route.01:31

Younderpuh! Got Ubuntu 20.04.1 desktop running on a rapberry pi 4. First installed the Ubuntu server 64 bit. The the ususal apt update/upgrade. Then sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop. Now it mostly works. Doeing a install of Intel openVINO to control the Neural Computer Stich 2. The standard install didn't work so I had com compile from git repo. Seems to be working fine so far 87% done..01:37
sharpninjaI cannot get a terminal session.  I can see the bootup sequence, then it goes black and I cannot do anything from there.01:38
Bashing-omsharpninja: And if you unset Kernel Mode Setting with the "nomodeset" boot paramater; what results ?01:39
Youndersharpninja, I abit anemic on the detail. What kinda computer, what os version? server or desktop?01:40
sharpninjaUbuntu 20.04 on Acer Aspire R7 with Core i5 and 8GB RAM on 512MB SSD01:46
sharpninja"unset Kernel Mode Setting with the "nomodeset" boot paramater;" <-- How do I do that?01:46
Bashing-om!nomodeset | sharpninja01:47

blueingressHi, can I increase the number of kernel versions when a new kernel coming?02:53
Bashing-omblueingress: ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade ' .02:54
blueingressBashing-om, I want to keep specified version of kernel, I am afraid when more new kernel were installed, THIS old version of kernel will be remove when triggered the "apt autoremove" command.02:58
blueingressby default the max number of kernel being kept is 3. how can I increase this number.02:59
Bashing-om!apt-mark02:59
sarnoldblueingress: check out /etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal -- iirc this file has references to all the other moving pieces03:02
blueingressBashing-om, just mark the specified version? for example "linux-image-5.3.0-1034-generic"03:02
Bashing-omblueingress: "keep specified version of kernel" One could use "apt-mark hold <whatever>" . see in terminal ' man apt-mark ' .03:03
blueingressBashing-om, thanks. I will try.03:08
=== edoneerf is now known as yawa
blueingresssarnold, I saw /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels, the kernel which I want to keep currently is in the section "APT::NeverAutoRemove"03:18
blueingresssarnold, maybe this confi will be changed when there is new kernel arrive.03:19

dpreacherwhich file is configured to select whether to launch the gui login manager or not?04:51
yawadpreacher: init -modes, probably, can't remember which is which04:55
yawaunless that's an old way to do it04:55
dpreacheri was thinking there would be a .xinit file in my ~ but nothing like it04:57
dpreacher.xinitrc rather i think04:57
yawalook here; this might help you https://askubuntu.com/questions/900985/how-can-i-simply-change-into-a-text-mode-runlevel-under-systemd04:58
yawa3 year old article but still. It mentions both .targets and inits04:58
yawaI doubt things in your home-folder will cancel out the automatic gui-login manager anyways05:04
yawabecause it spawns before any regular user logs in05:04
yawadpreacher: this might help too https://www.linuxbabe.com/command-line/systemd-services-run-levels-logs05:11
yawadpreacher: ' sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target ' to lock your system into non-graphical login mode, and ' sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target ' to reset it to gui-login05:34
yawait's all from https://www.linuxbabe.com/command-line/systemd-services-run-levels-logs05:35
yawaarticle is from 3rd of March 2020 so it should be current05:36
Maikyawa: the article has been "updated" on the 3rd of March but still shows a tutorial with screenshots from ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety. That has been almos four years ago now and the question is what exactly has been "updated" in that article.05:49
yawaubuntu 15.04+ or whatever it says. Should be current, or else they'd insert caveats I'd think05:50
yawa15.04 or later, so it should be good05:50
Maiki never rely on such articles and search for the most recent and official once that apply to the current system that is used. But that's just me. :)05:53
yawayeah you do you05:53
chl_Probaly the wrong channel, but here goes anyway.. Has anyone worked with writing leases from a isc-dhcpd server to a database?05:58
JeroenKQuestion, what is happening here and can I prevent it next time? Not the first time this happens https://www.picpasteplus.com/temp/shrink/84ec31b769_shrink.jpeg06:01
JeroenKSorry its dark, had the brightness low when I tried to do restart. Hoped Transmission would then quit too, but nope06:02
lotuspsychjeJeroenK: is your bios up to date?06:08
lotuspsychjea preboot brightness issue is kinda weird though06:08
lotuspsychjechl_: perhaps you could talk to the #ubuntu-server guys about isc06:10
chl_Could try, thanks!06:11
JeroenKLotuspsychje, I dont think it managed to close off yet, stuck because transmission won't quit. So it looks like anyway06:14
lotuspsychjeJeroenK: oh, im sorry i thought your issue was the brightness06:14
lotuspsychjeJeroenK: is that a dedi transmission server or just using the client?06:15
yawaJeroenK: xkill Transmission's window06:15
JeroenKHad the bittorrent client on, wanted to close it, but it won't, I thought I did though. Pulled up system monitor to see what was happening, wouldn't close anymore, shut down everything else then tried restart. And now I got this screen06:18
lotuspsychjeJeroenK: perhaps an idea, is to run transmission from a terminal next time06:18
lotuspsychjeJeroenK: then see what it does, when you close the GUI, see if there are any errors06:18
lotuspsychjeJeroenK: wich transmission version and ubuntu version by the way?06:19
JeroenKUbuntu 20.04, dunno transmission, but installed 20.04 a few weeks ago06:19
lotuspsychje!info transmission06:20

yawautorrent is cynicalized now06:24
luna_Deluge then06:24
JeroenKBut yeah, I dunno what i see on screen, but its simply transmission which won't shut down?06:25
lotuspsychjeJeroenK: open a: journactl -f aswell, and hope for some errors06:28

C0r3Hello everyone. I was wondering if I can update some config for NetworkManager to stop it from wifi hopping. I have 2 bad wifi connections and my networkmanager keeps switching to the other wifi if the bitrate goes down. It's there a way to stop it?06:37
yawachange or forget the password for the wifi-unit you don't want it to connect to06:38
yawathen it won't succeed to connect06:39
CQhello, my virtualbox is broken after the latest apt upgrade... I have the virtualbox.org repo in my apt source, but I thinkI may also have installed something from ubuntu that is conflicting. Any ideas how to see what is wrong?06:39
C0r3yawa: I want to use both as there are different providers. If one goes down then another.06:40
CQit is saying the kernel modules don't match the version of virtualbox06:40
C0r3s/there/they're/06:40
lotuspsychjeCQ: we dont support external repos, use the packages from the ubuntu repos instead06:41
yawaC0r3: I'd change the password by one arbitrary letter on the shunned device, and just change back on either ends once you want it to connect there06:42
yawamax out your WPA2 passwords dude06:43
yawaone letter 'wrong' is enough for it to "fail"06:43
C0r3yawa: So, there cannot be a config update on NetworkManager to stop it from wifi hopping?06:44
yawajust type one letter wrong in the saved password06:45
yawaand it won't succeed connectiong06:45
yawaconnecting06:45
yawaand change back for those times you want it to connect06:45
C0r3And everytime I wish to connect, I'll have to update the password of both? This happens mutiple times a day!06:45

chullMy husband is trying to format a drive with a Ubuntu 20.04 DVD.  The first error was: the ext4 file system creation in partition #5 of SCSI6 (0,0,0)(sdb) failed.  I suggested he start over, but when he tried, with the Ubuntu DVD in an external drive bay, heโ€™s getting a black screen and white blinking cursor and nothing happens.  Today I'm trying to find out if the computer (with a different drive) can see that external bay. This doesn't make any sens07:23
chulle to my husband.  What can we do?07:23
edoneerfhm so you have tons of partitions on the drive? Or is sda5 just a container for all extended partitions?07:25
edoneerfI meant sdb not sda; in any case sdb is the full drive; given that it's the right one you'd want to work with/on07:25
edoneerfand don't work on that directly if you got tons of partitions there07:26
edoneerfgparted or something could be better07:26
edoneerfand knowing which partitions are what, and so on07:27

edoneerfchull: sorry I forgot to mark your nick, but, be very careful with drives and partitions07:29
dpreacheredoneerf: i got the answer to log in to system in multi-user.target mode. but what is the equivalent of say putting ``exec /bin/<wm of choice`` in .xinitrc, such that startx reads that and launches it from the non graphical login?07:31
edoneerffirst set the runlevel to 3, dpreacher then mix and mess with the initrcs07:31
chulledoneerf, yes that too. Shouldn't the computer say something if an external drive comes online?07:31

hugh_mareraHello. I am on Ubuntu 20.04. I updated firefox recently  to firefox  80 via apt but all my extensions no longer show up on the status bar. When i go to Addons the extensions appear to be switch on but they do not appear to be working. For example, webext-ublock-origin is not blocking the adds. However, if i manually turn the addons off and then  on, they will show on the status bar. If i reboot my system then they disappear again. Then i have to ma10:28
hugh_mareranually switch them off and on for them to start working again. Is there a way to resolve this problem?

BluesKajHi all11:31
luna_hey11:33
hugh_mareralotuspsychje: not sure if they are reproducible. sudo apt-get install --reinstall firefox webext-ublock-origin webext-privacy-badger to install/reinstall firefox and the add ons. Start firefox either from gui or terminal. First time, they showed up fine on the status bar and were working. Then after a computer reboot, they disappeared from the status bar. In the settings, they show they are still enabled but do not work as ads flood firefox...11:37
lotuspsychjehugh_marera: allrighty lemme try that11:37
hugh_mareraok11:38
lotuspsychjehugh_marera: starting from terminal made them both enabled, now a reboot would disable them?11:38

np_completeok thanks11:40
lotuspsychjehugh_marera: both seems enabled in settings, do they create an icon by default on the bar? i dont see any11:43
hugh_mareralotuspsychje: they do create icon on the top right corner of the bar11:44
lotuspsychjehugh_marera: not for me so it seems, my other addons do11:44
hugh_mareralotuspsychje: now you can toggle them off and on  and they should show up11:45

LFlareHello, anyone using Ubuntu on an ASUS Zenbook UM425IA? I have certain queries about that notebook's lack of S3 suspend support.12:28

LFlareASUS Zenbook UM425IA, running 20.04 with the latest mainline kernel. I'm having problems both with resuming from s2idle, and resuming from s3, with s3 being hacked together by editing the acpi tables.12:38

Younderwaveform, in /boot/firmware you should set userconfig.txt not config.txt, but otherwise spot on. It worked! Thank you.18:35

johnjayis there any difference in packaging a deb file for ubuntu compared to debian? they both use deb right21:14
YounderI have fried two Graphics cards and one motherboard.21:14
rjwiiibray90820: I did ... Try this: On  your monitor's settings, and turn off Auto Port Scanning ...21:14
sarnoldjohnjay: mostly similar, but ubuntu splits the repository into main vs universe; sometimes you'll have a choice of dependencies, and it's best to prefer dependencies that are in main21:14
bray90820YES it does scan the ports after teh monitor turns off and then it goes back to HDMI with the mouse I think you may be right21:15
bray90820I'll try that21:15
johnjayoh yeah the ubuntu repos do ahve different names21:15
rjwiiibray90820: What is happening is when Ubuntu tries to put the monitors to sleep, the monitors do a port scan to see if there is any other ports sending content. When Ubuntu sees this, it thinks that there is activity and wakes up the monitors ... it's an endless cycle ...21:16
johnjaysarnold: do you know is it possible for one deb to work on both at once?21:16
rjwiiibray90820: Once you disable the auto port scan, the monitors will go to sleep.21:17
YounderDuh! the auto port scan..21:18

bray90820rjwiii: It's an Acer G721:31
* Younder is listening to nivana in the background21:32
rjwiiibray90820: Can you set the monitors to only one port, ie, the port you're using?21:34
rjwiiibray90820: some monitors may have an option to disable the scanning altogether and others my let you select the port to use ...21:34
bray90820Yeah but when it shut off it still scans all the ports21:34
rjwiiibray90820: Look for "Auto Source"21:36
Younderbray90820, Are you some sort of expert? How could you possibly know it it is scanning on all ports?21:36
bray90820Younder: Before it shut off it shows VGA then it shows DVI then HDMI then actually goes to sleep21:37
Younderaah21:38
bray90820The odd thing is it doesn't happen when onlt one monitor is connected21:38
rjwiiiYounder: When monitors go to sleep, they often show on the screen the different ports it's checking. They do on my work computer ..21:38

Younderrjwiii, seriosly!22:10
bray90820rjwiii: So I have done everything on the monitor itself and the setting isn't there22:27
jwashi have a runaway apt process, this is the result of hitting up --> enter a bunch of times rapidly https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/FskrPwt4Rp/. see how the pid changes very frequently, how do i kill it without a restart?22:38
sarnoldjwash: that process is already dead22:39
sarnoldjwash: try running top or htop instead22:39
jwashok22:39
sarnoldthe way bash works, it starts up the grep before it runs ps, so ps reports on it, and then grep selects itself because the 'apt' in the command line :)22:40
jwashfunny22:41
sarnoldsome people use a little grep trick to search for a pattern that won't match on itself, but that always seems like too much work to me22:41
pavlosjwash: can you kill the ppid 1442822:41
jwashpavlos, it doesn't exist, so no22:41
jwashit disappears, it was only a quick name22:42
sarnoldpavlos: that's the virtual set size of the process, *not* a process identifier22:42
pavlossarnold: yes, my mistake22:43
roger_rogerquick question please... have ubuntu desktop and it locked up - i rebooted and now my root password doesn't work... trying to boot to the brub menu but it ignores pressing and/or holding the shift key23:32
roger_rogerany suggestions?23:32
roger_rogerif i press the esc key, i get a cli scrolling past and then it just boots normally23:33
sarnoldroger_roger: ubuntu doesn't usually have a root password; did you set one? where are you being asked for one?23:34
roger_rogerif i open a terminal session and try to su23:34
roger_rogerwait - just did sudo su and that worked23:35
roger_rogerdoh!23:35
roger_rogeri'm so used to just using debian server for all my other stuff23:35
sarnoldaha; you can set a password for root if you really want to, but that will cause systemd to request it when booting into a rescue shell, and you'd want to doublecheck that sshd is configured to forbid root password logins, etc23:36
roger_rogeri'm good although concerned that i couldn't get to the grub menu23:37
roger_rogeri even tried a keyboard that connects to the ps2 interface ut no go23:37
sarnoldroger_roger: are you holding the left or the right shift key? iirc it requires the left shift key23:42
roger_rogerleft23:42
sarnoldroger_roger: the ps/2 check .. good thinking. some bioses don't do usb .. but I hope that's rare these days :)23:42
sarnoldbummer23:42
roger_rogeryeah - i've run into that on  older machines but this one is relatively new... but tried it anyway23:43
roger_rogeri was rebooting the pc - a friend suggested that i power it down and remove the power caord and then try23:50
KaedennHow do I change the format of `apt search` to use one line per package to make it easier to grep?23:52
bobdobbsI've plugged a USB mic into my desktop, running ubuntu 18.04. I'm running KDE. How do I make sure my system uses this mic? It does show up in pavucontrol under input devices. But if I use Audacity to record input, the mic doesn't get used.23:53
sarnoldKaedenn: try apt-cache search instead23:54
KaedennCan I have that print the package status too?23:55
sarnoldbobdobbs: does kmix exist? might it help?23:55
sarnoldKaedenn: not from apt-cache search; maybe dpkg-query? I don't use it very often, it might be able to do something similar23:56
bobdobbssarnold: installing kmix now23:56
bobdobbssarnold: is kmix supposed to be a gui?23:58
bobdobbssarnold: like, if I run 'kmix' from the terminal, nothing happens. The command is accepted, and just hangs. As if it runs a program in the background or something.23:59
sarnoldbobdobbs: I think so, it's got a lot of kde dependencies..23:59
sarnoldhm :(23:59
bobdobbsmaybe my whole audio system is busted or something23:59
