crimson_kingHow could I set tty1 as the default on startup? I'm using startx instead of LightDM now, but after the plymouth loading screen, it shows tty7, which doesn't have anything in it (it's a black screen with the motherboard logo). Switching to ttyt or any other gives me the login prompt, which is what I expect to see after the system loads.12:55

meganv1999Should I uninstall?15:44
oerheksyou told it like you reacted on the codec install question in your browser..  no, restricted extras is oke.15:45
meganv1999the package from the added apt source was brightness-controller from ppa:apandada115:45

giacohello! I'm trying to build a 4 screen setup using 2 vgas. VGAs are identical. I've first installed one and detected the first two displays correctly, then I've added the second vga. It is listed correctly in lspci, but ubuntu options sees only the two displays from the first vga16:47
giacoam I missing something?16:47
kenperkinsso, I have to identical laptops, both running 20.04.1, and with otherwise identical configurations; one of them the built in mic is inaudible, even at 100% input, the other is completely normal16:49
kenperkinsI've temporarily worked around by using pavucontrol to boost the quiet one up to like +10db16:52
kenperkinsbut that feels like a hack16:53
giacoactually it is the display manager in ubuntu settings that doesn't get the screen. The nvidia-settings program detects both vgas and all monitors16:54
giacobut the ones attached to the second card stays just off with "no-signal"16:55
strixdioHi everyone, trying to have a script automatically set the screen resolution if it's not correctly set. The script works fine if I run it as the user or root, but when I put it in cron it doesn't work (screen flashes, but resolution doesn't actually change). I've googled a bit about this and the things they mention I already seem to be doing. Would17:01
strixdioanyone be willing to take a look at the script, please?17:01

strixdioI have tried using --display :0 before, will try again though.17:06
merpnderpDoes Ubuntu support power and video out over thunderbolt/usb-c ?17:06
bindistrixdio: you might have to put them into /etc/X11/Xsession.d/, although i'm not sure if that's the case on newer releases17:07
bindiinstead of crontab17:07
strixdioI'm not familiar with that.17:07
pavlosstrixdio: you may have to write a small script and add it in Startup applications17:10
strixdiolike a systemd script?17:10
pavlosstrixdio: no, just myres.sh add the xrandr line in there. save exit make it exec. Go to startup apps, add, point to the location of script17:12
strixdioI don't think this has a "startup apps"17:14

ioriastrixdio, not sure makes sense  a script that set resolution continually , but ok17:25
strixdioioria it checks if the resolution has changed and only changes it back if needed. This is done because people change sources on the 2ndary display and it messes up the resolution when they switch back17:28
ioriastrixdio, i see ; so you should have a daemon that check continually the resolution value, and if altered, restore it to default17:30
strixdioWell, this daemon, how does it differ from running a cron job?17:30
strixdiomeaning how does that differ from the script I already have?17:31
ioriastrixdio, what's the script ? the xrandr command  above?17:32
strixdioIt's actually a lot longer, but yeah that's the "meat" of it that's not working.17:32

oerheksyes, we love fedora questions here , about vms17:58
Southern_Gentlemgiaco, do you have nvidia-config17:58
oerheksi hope the 2nd card is powered properly ..17:58
giacooerheks: is not a bios problem, is not a video driver problem, is a gnome problem. I now have the xorg-conf generated by nvidia-settings with xinerama mode activated (that would generate a unique DISPLAY=:0 large 1920x4) and it actually works, because once reboot X starts and I have a mouse cursor on black screen that goes correctly on all 4 screens crossing borders. Point is that gdm is not18:00
giacoshowing anything and it stops at that cursors on black screens18:00
giacobut systemctl status gdm shows is running correctly18:01
giacoI just need to run 4 fullscreen web-pages, I actually don't care about gnome, I would replace it completely if that would solve the problem. Any hint?18:02
giacopoint is that if I export DISPLAY=:0 at terminal and run anything like xcalc, it says it launches correctly but it doesn't show anything on screen18:03
oerheksDISPLAY=:0.1 = adapter 1, display 0 ...18:04
oerheksor around, whatever..18:04
oerheksweird black screens with cursor could be fixed with nomodeset?18:05
ubottuSystems 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.18:05
giacoubottu: kernel is booting correctly, xorg is running correcty (mouse moves over all screens)18:06
giacoif I shut down gdm (systemctl stop gdm), start $ sudo Xorg manually, DISPLAY=:0 xcalc it works18:08
giacoI've been talking to a bot. My day might be over18:10
giacosudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm3 return $! = 0 but outputs nothing18:14
oerheksYou created an xorg.conf, disable that first?18:15
giacooerheks: for what?18:16
oerheksfor that 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm3"18:16
giacoxorg.conf works perfectly. Screens coordinates are correct, input devices are mapped correctly, mouse crosses borders, resolution and refresh rates matches. That xorg.conf generated by nvidia-settings is just perfect18:17
oerheksoh, it is perfect, so you have no issue?18:17
giacoI'm having issues with gdm/gnome, not xorg18:17
giacoguess what, just installed lightdm and it worked out of the box18:18
giacoa bug on gdm for non-trivial multi-head setup should be opened18:20
giacono, it is not the gdm, it is gnome. I though it was gdm as I was using autologin18:27
giacobut lightdm does the same. It asks for passwords correctly spanning all 4 screens, then mouse on 4 black screens18:28

noalternativeI installed Ubuntu onto an Intel compute stick,,and attached compute stick to a lapdock computer called nexdock 1st gen.20:46
noalternativeIt connect to keyboard and touchpad through bluetooth.  I was able to pair it, but I can't get it to type anything ot the pointer to work.?20:47
noalternativeI updated it thinking it might be a driver issue,but that yealded nothing as well.  I am currently just using the dispay with a wired keyboard and mouse but it seems prtetty ugly and stupid.20:48
noalternativeDoes anyone have any idea what might be wrong?  Is there a ppa with some drivers for nexdock?20:49
noalternativeEdit: Compute Stick connects to nexdock keyboard and touchpad bia bluetooth.  The display connects through hdmi, and that is working perfectly.20:51
noalternativeWell I guess, I'll pin this tab, and see if anyone comes along..    Of coarse you can pm me.20:55
noalternativeBTW, I installed Budgie 18.04 64bit on a Cherry Trail Compute stick with 2gb of Ram, and a 32bit bios, os it is picky about the oses it allows..I consider this a more or less god install.  Just need my bluetooth keyboard and touchpad working.21:04
noalternativea good install.  This old clicky keyboard is hit and miss.21:05

k0nichiWawas rsync -a copying a dir structure, copy incomplete, i deleted some of the source, and tried to resume rsync quit without error code after processing only a small amount21:24
k0nichiWamaakes no sense, rsync shouldnt care if there are unexpected diretories present in the destination should it ?21:24
john_rambo I have purchased this bluetooth headset >> https://www.samsung.com/in/support/model/EO-BG920BWEBUS/ .....Problem is I am hearing only MONO ...I want STEREO. How to do that ?21:41
mustmodify_What channel would be appropriate to help me diagnose networking issues after a system update?21:54
jeremy31mustmodify_: This one if it involves Ubuntu21:54
mustmodify_great. I'm experiencing intermittent delays in network traffic. Other machines on the same network are not seeing this issue.21:56
jeremy31mustmodify_: ethernet or wifi?21:56
s_im trying to dd from a floppy. where is this going to show up?21:58
s_ubuntu 2021:58
s_using a usb floppy disk21:58
oerheksunder /media/ , i guess22:00
mustmodify_Sorry for the delay. Stupid internet. Ubuntu 18. My first stab at measuring this: https://gist.github.com/mustmodify/41d8cfa3594dcbce5b450c046262ce90/edit22:00
mustmodify_this is wifi. Issue was not present yesterday before the updates.22:00
jeremy31mustmodify_: see https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2354328&p=13614520&#post1361452022:04
mustmodify_In summary, `curl www.google.com` took 6s, 5s, 1.9s, and 21.5s. And as I said, google loads "snapily" (if that's a technical word, and I suspect it isn't) on other machines on the same network.22:05
mustmodify_jeremy31: checking your link now22:05
mustmodify_(page then takes FOREVER to load... ) :)22:06
mustmodify_when downloading multiple assets it's a killer!!22:06
k0nichiWamustmodify_, maybe its just the nameserver you're using22:09
k0nichiWai think ive seen that when i had a slow nameserver selected22:10
k0nichiWafits because single assets download fast once the nameserver returns IP, but each lookup is slow22:10
mustmodify_I have to restart... confused about whether I'm configuring DNS properly.22:24
k0nichiWaon my macbook if i delete the DNS entries it auotmatically loads them from the wifi router22:33
k0nichiWaanother possibility to consider ... maybe you should delete manually provided DNS and let it discover them from the router22:34
analogicalhow do I find what cluster size a file system is using?22:38
mustmodify_ok. It's not the DNS servers. Can you send the other link someone suggested? I hadn't tried the second step yet.22:41
mustmodify_https://gist.github.com/mustmodify/e81e596e59a8a44f4e4d2c16dca02920  Here's where I am now.22:42
jeremy31mustmodify_: what computer and wifi card?22:45
mustmodify_Dell. I'll get the specifics.22:45
mustmodify_dell inspiron22:45
jeremy31mustmodify_: Post URL from terminal for>  lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 net | nc termbin.com 999922:46
mustmodify_working on that now22:49
mustmodify_still waiting for the "new gist" page to come up.22:52
jeremy31mustmodify_: just post the URL from terminal22:52
mustmodify_jeremy31: ^ that was quick!22:56
jeremy31mustmodify_: in terminal>  echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=8" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwl-opt.conf22:58
jeremy31then reboot22:58
mustmodify_what does that do?23:00
jeremy31mustmodify_: enables aggressive TX, it has helped with Intel wifi in the past23:01
mustmodify_ok thanks. Note again that this started with an update yesterday, used to work. Restarting now.23:01
mustmodify_still slow. :(23:17
mustmodify_When I click on "New Terminal", I get a box and then 5 seconds later a terminal. What's happening during that time?23:20
jeremy31mustmodify_: you might want to use the grub menu and choose an older kernel from advanced options menu23:20
mustmodify_I don't remember whether that's new or not, but it feels like the terminal used to appear in the window immediately.23:20
mustmodify_ok I'll give it a shot.23:21
noalternativeAnyone around that can help with a bluetooth keyboard that pairs but won't type?23:33
transhumanistHi! I have ubuntu 20.04 the latest dlib does not support the compiler that is included with Ubuntu 20.04 and also in order to compile with nvidia support dlib has to be compiled from  the latest.
