k44does ubuntu use .deb or .rpm or both?01:48
xbfrogdont know about rpm but it can use deb01:48
k44is there a distro that support both  .deb and .rpm?01:48
xbfrogsomeone else will have to answer that i'm new to ubuntu01:49
xbfroghere is what i found:01:51
xbfrogDistributions like Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Enterprise Linux, openSUSE, Fedora and CentOS are based on rpm, while the Debian family, including Ubuntu, Linux Mint, elementary OS are based on deb. And there are many other distributions that have their own package formats.01:51
xbfrogand its goodbye rpm and deb. hellow snaps01:52
xbfrogdoesnt seem they do both01:52
rfmk44, there is the "alien" package in ubuntu that can convert an rpm to a deb, but I've heard it can't convert all packages, and often there are incompatibilies that keep the package from working01:53
xbfrogprobably because os's have their own packaging sysems01:53
rfmk44, similar to installing a deb that was built for one ubuntu release on a different ubuntu release, sometimes library different versions, etc.01:54
xbfrogmaking them incompatible in some or most instances01:54
xbfrogthats why most helpers say update before you install a new app01:54
xbfrogthats also why its advised unless you know what your doing to stay with the distro's repository01:56

HelpGrubHELP after i installed Ubuntu 18.04.4 my BIOS disappeared, i already have the bootable USB with windows 8 but i dont have BIOS to run it. Every F1 to F12 comand just opens Grub, and i dont kneow what else to do. I just want to go back from Ubuntu to my windows 803:54
derpadminthe bios did not dissapear if you can reach the grub screen, but for some odd reason, F2 does not enter the bios as it should03:57
tuxakadjsebI think that your computer want to boot with a wrong hard drive.03:58
tuxakadjsebYou can try 'Esc' ou 'F2'.03:58
HelpGrubve tried all F1 to F12, ive tried with Esc button ive tried with delete and back space i restart and try with each key ive found in blogs and youtube tutorials, theres no bios03:59

monkwitdafunkledeni: no man! HelpGrub has unified extensible firmware, which isnt the old bios from pre windows 804:44
monkwitdafunkthe users firmware probably was shipped to auto ecure boot after install04:45
monkwitdafunkHelpGrub: do you just have one storage device?04:45
HelpGrublike an external usb?04:46
monkwitdafunkit depends on how the firmware wants to see it as im guessing. ive only seen intel uefi with intel NUC04:47
HelpGrubive tried all F comands esc and delete and back space, ive tried with and without the disk drive plugged in, ive tried from terminal to change grub setup and tried with and without the bootable usb connected04:47
monkwitdafunkubuntu was one of the first distros to support eufi04:48
HelpGrubsorry, whats uefi?04:49
monkwitdafunki think we should accept to use secure boot <<< uefi allows secure boot04:49

lotuspsychjesven^: systemsettings/hotkey or dconf-editor for tweaking09:04
sven^lotuspsychje: thanks. I missed dconf-editor. Why are there (at least) 3 ways to edit hotkeys?09:12
lotuspsychjesven^: what do you mean 3 ways?09:13
sven^well, you just told me 2. In addition to that there is gnome-tweaks09:13
sven^so there are 3 ways to edit key bindings and they don't overlap much. For most bindings I need to check all 3 places and search which one provides the shortcut I want to change09:14
lotuspsychjesven^: oh, but dconf-editor is just a global tweak method of the system, not only for hotkeys right09:15
sven^yeh, but hotkeys introduced by a new version seem to be only editable in dconf-editor and not the 2 other places where ubuntu/gnome keeps its hotkeys.09:18

sven^that's not what I am arguing about. I am arguing about 3+ places where the user has to look to edit all keybindings.09:26

beweesjonnj: yep, compared both versions already too and I expected it to be in the original repo master branch 245 but i still got the same error pattern (link local is configured even though I disabled it for an interface specifically)13:34

CheetzHi, I have problems with audio. I use a USB sound card on Ubuntu 20.04 and when I stream music on youtube, the sound often disappears, this happens every 3 minutes or so. Pausing the video and pressing backspace in a terminal window to cause a terminal bell sound and then unpausing the video temporarily restores audio. What can this problem be?14:13
CheetzThe browser I am using is firefox14:13
funnybunny2Does Ubuntu come with a program for capturing video of a window?14:13
funnybunny2Especially as a gif would be nice14:13
funnybunny2But just looking for something easy I can quickly upload to imgur or something14:14
Habbiefunnybunny2, apt-cache search capture | grep screen14:14
Cheetzfunnybunny2, https://github.com/dergachev/screengif14:14
Habbiefunnybunny2, yields a bunch of results on my Debian; presumably, also on your Ubuntu14:14
CheetzCheck out OBS14:15
CheetzOBS lets you record a specific window with a GUI, and then you can take its output video and convert it to a gif with a script that I linked above14:16
beweesjohnjay: nvm, it seems the issue was caused by dhcpcd, not systemd-networkd14:26
CheetzAnyone know how to fix issues with audio disappearing on youtube in firefox? It just goes silent every few minutes while the video keeps playing. I have to open a terminal and trigger a terminal bell to play a sound. Then I hear the speakers crack and I can unpause the youtube video with sound. This only fixes audio temporarily14:33

pavlosEtua: you connect as user gserious but provide identifyfile for root ?16:45
Etuapavlos: Here is how I understand it, I connect to user gserious at but use RSA key that is stored in root's directory as fstab mounts by default belong to root anyway(?). I can successfully perform 'sudo ssh gserious@ -p 8798' so I thought that translating it to fstab entry should be no problem.16:49
pavlosEtua: my line: user@u18s:/home/user/pub /mnt/pub fuse.sshfs _netdev,defaults,identityfile=/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa 0 0          username=user, u18s is ubuntu18server16:50
Etuapavlos: I think that it is similar to mine, why do you have 'username=...'? I tries adding it in-between other options like identityfile or after 0 0 and in both places I get an error about unrecognised option.16:57
pavlosEtua: oh, that was my explanation hence the many spaces, I should have put #16:58

jayjohow can a workstation double as an always-on server? I know I can just keep the machine on. But what if I logged in remotely and did a 'reboot', it would be stuck at the login screen. Can I enable the machine to run always, but only require logins for the interactive desktop session?20:44
reversedeltait already is an always-on server, as long as your services are managed by systemd.20:46
reversedeltathe computer boots, systemd starts your stuff.  what exactly are you looking to do?20:46
jayjoExactly that. Everything is using systemd, for example docker containers. I just wanted to make sure cronjobs and other services were always available20:50
matsamanjayjo: just make sure your remote login stuff works from a just-booted state, that is a thing20:50
reversedeltaI haven't worked with Docker, but if systemd can start it, you should be good.  I'd test if it I were you.  Enable SSHd in case you need to intervene.20:52
matsamana lot of things, like VNC, should really be done over SSH anyway, for security, at least if you're doing it across the internet (and not just within your own local network)20:54
reversedeltaof course.  tunnel everything if you can.  use Mozilla's SSHd_config recommendations to secure the one port that should be open to the world.  Disable SSH over IPv4 if you have the luxury, as that will cut down on automated port scans, too.20:56
tomreynjayjo: you may need to ensure it won't switch to a low power state from which you cannot wake it up remotely. but if it's not running on battery but wall plug it probably won't anyway.20:56
tomreynstable internet access and either dyndns or static ip addressing would also be relevant.20:57
