mgedminvoicu: the easiest way is to install the language pack for your language07:56
mgedminvoicu: e.g. apt install language-pack-en-base07:58
voicumgedmin: I fixed it but I'm asking why is this happening every time I install ubuntu. Is the problem that I don't have that language pack?08:02
voicuif so, why is not installed then08:02
mgedminI cannot answer; I've never used kubuntu08:03
voicuand it was installed already08:03
mgedminit doesn't happen for me with stock ubuntu08:03
mgedminvoicu: okay, can you please pastebin the output of `locale`?08:03
mgedmin"locale is not supported" can have two causes: either you specified the locale incorrectly, or the locale was not compiled on your system08:04

mgedmin(rant: why doesn't ubuntu preinstall locales-all?  surely disk space isn't that precious in 2020)08:04
voicumgedmin: yeah, that's kinda my point. Install everything that's needed but don't make me fix locales every time I set up kubuntu. It's so frustrating08:05
mgedminvoicu: en_SE is not a real locale?08:05
voicuI dunno, but that's not what causes the problem08:05
voicuit's LC_ALL and the others that are not set at all08:06
voicuwith every fresh install08:06
mgedminwhat do you think the problem is?  to me, the problem is "locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory"08:06
mgedminwhich is caused by LC_CTYPE in the environment being set to en_SE.UTF-808:06
mgedminwhereas gnu libc doesn't know about a locale called 'en_SE'08:07
voicuwell what is the default locale?08:07
mgedminthere's no en_SE in /usr/share/i18n/locales/, which contains the locale sources08:07
mgedminthe 'default locale' is determined by your environment08:07
mgedminfor every facet there are three environment variables that specify it08:07
voicuok but I never set any of it. It's just what happens when I setup the os08:07
voicuI assume it's because I live in Sweden08:07
mgedminLC_ALL; if that's not set, then LC_xxx for the specific facet, then finally if that's not set, there's the fallback to LANG08:07
mgedminI don't know why your environment has LC_CTYPE set to en_SE.UTF-808:08
mgedmindoes that come from /etc/environment?  /etc/default/locale?  your ~/.profile?  something else?08:08
voicuI think from /etc/default/locale08:09
mgedmindid you edit that file manually?08:09
mgedminor did the installer write an invalid locale value there?08:09
voicuI edited now to add LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"08:09
voicubut it says at the top that it's autogenerated08:10
mgedminfor me it says "# File generated by update-locale"08:10
mgedminwhich is more of a statement of "who touched this file last", and not an admonishment not to edit it manually08:11
voicuand every time I install kubuntu, I have this problem, I go online, I try update-locale, it doesn't fix it, I find another thing, and so on08:11
mgedminI suppose sudo update-locale LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 is easier/more convenient than sudo vi /etc/default/locale08:11
voicuis there some way to get this problem fixed from the start?08:11
mgedminit is starting to sound like a kubuntu installer bug to me?08:12
mgedminif it generates an /etc/default/locale with invalid values in it08:12
mgedminso the way to get it fixed is to report a bug08:12
voicuI was thinking that08:13
voicuI just don't know what this is supposedly a bug of08:14

AscavasaionI just did a distro upgrade from 18.04.1 LTS (I think) to 20.04.1 LTS.  It disabled a repository I installed for my printer (https://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/".  I reenabled the repository after booting into the new distro version.  When I ran sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade it suggests uninstalling  all the files I installed for the printer as no longer necessary.  What do I do?08:41
mgedmincan you pastebin the full output from `sudo apt upgrade`?08:42
mgedminfrom your description it's not clear to me if apt thinks those packages were auto-installed and can now be auto-removed, or if they conflict with something else in your system and therefore apt wants to remove them08:43
mgedminin the first case you can mark them as manually installed and apt will no longer suggest autoremovals08:43
mgedminthe simplest way of doing that is 'sudo apt install packagename ...' for the packages08:43
mgedminin the second case things may be harder08:43
mgedmin(I don't suppose getting a printer that doesn't require 3rd-party drivers is an option for you?)08:44
Ascavasaionmgedmin: https://pastebin.com/2pLY8auW08:45
AscavasaionNo, its not a conflict error.08:45
mgedminright, then the simple solution will work08:46
mgedminalthough it's strange to me, how are these autoinstalled packages?08:46
mgedminwas there an additional package that pulled them in and then got removed during the upgrade, leaving these?08:46
Ascavasaionhow do I mark them as manually installed?08:47
Ascavasaionmgedmin: I do not know.08:47
mgedminlike I said, 'sudo apt install suld-driver-4.01.17' and such08:47
Ascavasaionmgedmin: That worked perfectly, thank you.08:49
mgedminthe big question is: does the printer work?08:49
AscavasaionI misunderstood the message from apt, I presumed it was obsolete and refused to install it.08:49
AscavasaionIndeed... Let me try a test page ont he two printers.08:50
Ascavasaionmgedmin: Thought you would like to know... both printers work perfectly :-)09:20

moritzdietzHi all! I'm trying to find a way to track which programm starts another program. My use case is that I have some program that adds an iptables entry and I would love to know which it is.10:03
moritzdietzThe host is managed by puppet and every 30 minutes it removes a tcp/9001 iptables entry. For months now I've been trying to find out which program it is.10:03
moritzdietzI thought of some form of permanent tracing for an incovation of iptables itself?! Would love to get some ideas on this10:03
mgedminmoritzdietz: wow, what an interesting problem!  this should be possible, assuming the rule is added by running iptables and not by making syscalls directly10:15
moritzdietzHa! good point10:15
mgedminmoritzdietz: I know that atop can track what programs were launched (apt install atop and it runs as a daemon that takes system state snapshots every 10 minutes; sudo atop -r lets you browse them with t/T keys)10:15
moritzdietzI have no idea and it's driving me nuts. We have this on ~400 SLES servers10:15
mgedminI don't recall if atop's list of processes that ran and exited shows the PPID10:15
moritzdietzGood idea using atop recording10:16
mgedminprobably there are better-suited tools for this (sysstat?  I don't really know)10:16
moritzdietzstrace and dtrace maybe?!10:17
mgedminI don't think dtrace is available for linux, but there are equivalent tools10:20
rtpganyone been having problems with corrupted displays after waking from sleep for chromium-based applications (electron + chrome)10:20
mgedminstrace is not a system-wide solution10:20
moritzdietzdtrace should be available for linux though10:21
jpdsmoritzdietz: You could write an auditd rule to track exec's10:23
moritzdietzI like that idea10:25
moritzdietzI have heard of autitd but haven't used it10:25

jonnjyou might be able to ignore them.13:30
jonnji have one kept-back package at the moment. it is because if it updates 64-bit it also wants to update 32-bit and there might not be a 32-bit package available.13:31
BluesKajmidow, wait til the packages are available for install, there's a reason they're being held back13:31
jonnjthere are probably solutions to this though13:31
jonnjThe following packages have been kept back:  libodbc113:33
jonnjI don't really need a more up-to-date version of ODBC.13:33
midowBluesKaj, seems odd. I think they've been in this state for months13:46
midowand it is always the same packages13:46
midowperhaps this could be caused by 3rd party repos?13:47
midowor ppas13:47
jonnjit is always possible track down the specific packages. you also might be able to "fix" the version, essentially hiding the warning. i don't remember exactly how to do this. there are always potential risks doing this because you may miss important updates.13:51
palimaarhello, I'm running server 20.04 and I cannot use my HDMI outlet in my machine (Raspberry Pi) anymore. How can I re-enable it? I still am able to reach it via SSH, though13:54
palimaaralternatively, is this better asked in #raspberrypi?13:55
waveformpalimaar, what configuration did you change / command did you run to disable the HDMI output?13:55
waveform(e.g. the tvservice command is capable of disabling the HDMI port, in such a way that typically only a reboot will bring it back)13:56
palimaarwaveform: nothing. Simply rebooted it and the outlet stopped working13:56
palimaaroutlets*, as there are two and neither work13:56
palimaarI don't exactly remember installing or changing anything specifically, though I did reboot due to a kernel upgrade13:57
waveformhmmm, is there any way you can rule out a dodgy cable? e.g. testing it on another pi? (I've certainly had problems with micro-HDMI converters on the new models)13:58
palimaarfair enough, I can't rule out that completely, since the cable is fine, but the only thing that uses that adapter is this pi13:58
palimaarso I can't test it with anything else13:59
waveformor testing another SD card with a fundamentally install, like Raspbian - i.e. if the display fails on that too, most likely a hardware issue; if that works then we're looking at some configuration issue13:59
waveformfundamentally *different - sorry13:59
palimaarok, I can try that later when I have access to it again14:03
realiestrying to install conntrack and conntrackd on 18.04 and it fails with E: Unable to locate package conntrack E: Unable to locate package conntrackd, although those seem to be available in launchpad?14:03
palimaarcurious, though, what configs affect the video output in that way? anything in /etc?14:03
leftyfbpalimaar: you might have better luck in #raspberrypi14:03
palimaarthanks leftyfb, wasn't sure about it14:04
BluesKajmidow, if you're feeling adventurous then do: sudo apt dist-upgrade14:06
waveformpalimaar, there's quite a few things that can affect video output in the boot configuration (i.e. /boot/firmware/config.txt on ubuntu, /boot/config.txt on raspbian); at a basic level there's stuff like hdmi_mode, hdmi_group, hdmi_driver, etc. - and installing a kernel does write to the boot partition (though flash-kernel should never be touching config.txt)14:07
waveformpalimaar, there's not much in /etc that affects the HDMI output quite so directly, but there are potential some things; e.g. flash-kernel bakes certain cmdline parameters taken from files in /etc/ into the u-boot script that gets run as part of the boot sequence, and the kernel cmdline on the pi ultimately ends with things like framebuffer parameters in it so ... it's possible to break HDMI output that way I suppose14:08
waveformpalimaar, still - one other thing to check for debugging purposes: do you see the "rainbow" screen at the start of the boot sequence? If so, your HDMI cable is fine and it's definitely a config issue; if you don't I'd lean heavily towards a hardware issue at that point as that's generated long before the kernel starts14:10
waveform(although it's still possible to break the configuration so that doesn't display - but that's a firmware configuration issue, not a kernel one)14:11
midowBluesKaj, did, and it does not change anything14:12
midowI did*14:12
palimaarthanks waveform, I'll take a look into these.. did see /boot/config.txt in raspbian forums, but couldn't find them in Ubuntu. I'll start under /boot/firmware and see about it14:12
palimaarbut no, I don't see the boot sequence at all. Maybe it's another clue that my adapter needs rechecking14:13
BluesKajmidow, you mentioned ppas, do you have any in /etc/apt/sources.list.d?14:14
waveformpalimaar, okay - if there's absolutely nothing on the screen I'd certainly lean heavily towards the adapter / screen itself - if those both checkout then it *must* be something in config.txt (or one of the files mentioned in there) as that the only configuration that applies to the firmware at that stage14:15
midowBluesKaj, seems like 1014:16
BluesKajprobly should purge them except for chrome and spotify if you have those...ppas should be removed after installing associated packages since the next kernel upgrade could break your system14:19
[1997kB]`hey, I just applied an update and settings and livepatch are not opening.14:19
midowhow am I supposed to get updates for those packages if I remove the ppas?14:19
midow(also, this is a server)14:20
BluesKajmidow, ppas eventually get into the regular repos when they're stable enough14:21

palimaarthanks waveform!14:27
leftyfbmidow: which ppa's do you have on a server? BluesKaj is not completely wrong when it comes to ppa's that typically get added to servers. Most ppa's added to servers are to get later versions of server applications on their server.14:28

leibniz[m]Habbie: N00b question, but why this package resolveconf is needed? I mean we need it to set up DNS?16:03
Habbieleibniz[m], i don't know exactly what it does16:03
drupol@wedr how can I update to it?16:10
wedrYou just keep running the Ubuntu Auto-updater **IN GUI** periodically, and restart your computer after each update has completed, and repeat, rinse and repeat, until you get this message.16:11

wedrI'm completely unfamiliar with KDE and Neon stuffs. :(16:11
drupolI think I did a wrong move upgrading to Neon. I didn't it was going to upgrade the whole os.16:11

jjbuggleMy system keeps crashing because it is running out of memory.  I think the problem stems from me having too many windows open, firefox being e memory hog, and the installer giving me a tiny swap partition.  What can I do?  Also, why doesn't ubuntu handle this better?16:43
akemjjbuggle, How much RAM you got?16:48
jjbuggleakem: 12g16:48
akemjjbuggle, It must be a memory leak bug in one of the drivers.16:49
jjbuggleakem: I'm not familiar with that.  Is there a fix for that?16:49
ThinkT510open up a system monitor tool and see what is hogging all your RAM. that would be the first step16:50
jjbuggleI mean, part of the issue was the default amount of swap, which was 1g.  Then it went up to 2 at some point.  Normally I would do at least 10g if I were setting things myself, but I had bought a new sdd, and I didn't know how to do the partitioning.  So I needed to go with Ubuntu's defauluts16:51
akemjjbuggle, It should not happens with 12 GB RAM ofc. You gotta looks for your hardware...It could be the Wifi, i had this problem...or something else.16:51
jjbuggleThinkT510: like I said, it is a combo of me leaving lot's of tabs open, and firefox using lot's of memory16:52
ThinkT510does it crash when you're not using firefox? sounds to me it might be one of those tabs or maybe some add-on16:52
jjbuggleOne struggle for me is that it get's away from me.  I get no warning, and then 1 too many tabs, and my computer has to swap memory for 5-10 minutes before it finally makes some program crash.  Annd once it starts swapping, the gui locks up as well, so I can't just close a tab16:53
wedrYou're on which Ubuntu version?16:54
wedrJust wondering16:54
ThinkT510how may tabs does one have to have open that ends up taking almost 12gb. like akem said, there is a leak somewhere16:54
akemjjbuggle, How many tabs you run?16:54
wedrI personally run about 50+ tabs using Firefox on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, so I don't know how you're able to crash your Ubuntu like that. And I have 8GB of RAM16:55
wedrso yeah, it has to be some memory leak going on16:55
jjbuggleweird.  I have maybe 1.5 dozen windows with a few tabs in each16:56
jjbuggleok, about 28 windows, 1-5 tabs each16:56
ThinkT510you have 18 instances of firefox open? why?16:56
jjbugglenot a fan of bookmarks?16:57
jjbuggleI feel like netflix does memory leak.  Like if I don't close the window that netflix was using, even though the netflix page was closed, the memory get's saved16:58
ThinkT510that does sound like the likely culprit16:59

jaydemirjust looking to be pointed in the right direction. I need to download a massive amount of images from the terminal using vastly different URLs. I would like to set up a file with all the URLs in it (probably plaintext) then feed it to a script where Ubuntu will wget each link one by one through the file.

bostongeek36strive: can you type anything in?19:48
bostongeek36strive: also make sure you didn't download the server version that only has a cli19:49
strivebostongeek36: I JUST read that running WSL (Ubuntu) will not allow virtualbox to use virtualization!19:51
bostongeek36strive: wsl is like a vm19:51
bostongeek36so running a vm in a vm19:51
leftyfbstrive: yeah, you need to disable their hyperv stuff in order to run Virtualbox19:52
striveNo no. I've already got Ubuntu running with WSL. Since WSL is already using VT-x, I am unable to use Virtualbox.19:52
bostongeek36disable that19:52

EvilKittyBoihow do I disable unauthorized thunderbolt device message?20:41
EvilKittyBoiyes the thunderbolt device is unauthorized, but the thunderbolt port is broken....20:42
EvilKittyBoiit disconnects randomly and reconnects every minute or so...20:42
EvilKittyBoithe notification is driving me nuts :<20:43
ajayahmedhello. how can i check if my fuse supports FUSE_PASSTHROUGH ?21:05
tomreynEvilKittyBoi: can you share the full message (textually, or a screenshot), and provide some context? which ubuntu version are you running?21:05
leftyfbEvilKittyBoi: why are you plugging anything into a broken port?21:06
EvilKittyBoileftyfb, it's the only port I have left :<21:06

EvilKittyBoithe thing dissapears before I can screenshot it, ubuntu 20.0421:07
EvilKittyBoiI just want to disable that message because the port is broken.... it just pops and pops and pops21:08
tomreynand whats broken about the port?21:08
EvilKittyBoiwhat isn't, exposed wires, leds acting up, flex in the circuits...21:09
EvilKittyBoigarbage laptop... >:(21:09
EvilKittyBoiI duct taped it together and that's the only way to charge the thing21:09
EvilKittyBoiI know ubuntu is doing the right thing, the message should pop up... but there's no much I can do until I get a new laptop and the notification disturbs me :(21:11
tomreyni suspect this is actually a matter of reconfiguring your bios21:11
tomreynlooks like you should be able to use boltctl to change the security mode to "none", which enables dma attacks via this port21:15
tomreynboltctl enroll --policy auto DEVICE21:16
EvilKittyBoitomreyn, how do I do that...?... well who cares, data transfer doesn't work :D21:16
EvilKittyBoiwhat's my device?21:17
tomreyni guess you can't fix broken hardware in software21:17
tomreyn"boltctl list" should tell the device, also dmesg21:17
EvilKittyBoiI mean not a security concern if the data transfer oesn't work21:17
EvilKittyBoiI can see them but not an id I can use21:17

EvilKittyBoiis there a way I can disable the dock tomreyn I am getting glitches now as the port connects and disconnects due to the hardware issue, and ubuntu tries to get all the USB devices in the dock and possible screens and network21:20

backthenI'm adding a drive with Win10 to an Ubuntu desktop. Do I need to install any boot loader? Or will they figure each other out?22:02
lordcirthbackthen, most likely your current boot device will boot Ubuntu. You might have to re-run grub-install for Windows to show up.22:16
pjsthis may be a silly question but, the other day I installed ttf-mscorefonts-installer for some MS fonts and now, it seems to have taken the place of other fonts that I used for specific icons (ie, in my i3 bar or term). If I use i3blocks pango markup, specify the "Icons" font set, they show correctly. However in terminals etc. they still don't. How can I specify the "order" to check fonts? or maybe, just move22:17

tomreynleibniz[m]: if that's your router, yes. most home routers will relay, and cache, dns requests.22:34
lordcirthbackthen, no, the package is already installed; you may need to re-run grub-install. But try without it first22:37
