yeahnahmatehi guys could anyone explain what a loop & loopback device in linux is, with easy to explain analogy/example please-from what i can make out its an interface setup so that you can test manage the interface eg wifi network but not sure how that goes with a hd?04:09
rjwiiiloopback h as nothing to do with the hard drive04:10
yeahnahmateso is it only to do with networking04:12
tatertotsthat doesn't sound like a ubuntu related issue at all04:13
yeahnahmatehow about /dev/loop0 and /dev/loop2;3;4;5;6 what should i read about to understand what that is please?04:14
yeahnahmatefair call tatertots soz04:14
jonnjloopback device - in the linux/unix world a file can also act like a block device. in other words, a hard disk. of course it doesn't happen automatically. you have to create a mapping from the file to a specific device. once you do that, you can use the file as a device/hard disk.04:28
jonnjok i just googled loopback device and it is talking about networks so maybe the terminology is different for a block device.04:30
jonnjactually i am getting a mixture of both definitions04:30
jonnjthe concept is similar for block devices and networks04:31

acebrianjuanHi folks, how come some programs have terminal autocompletion while others don't?09:31
acebrianjuanI mean, some programs like git show me the different options or flags that I can pass to it (by hitting the TAB key)09:33
acebrianjuanBut other programs don't seem to have that feature09:34
acebrianjuanSo when I hit TAB they don't print anything at all09:34
mgedminit's not a program feature, it's a bash feature09:34
mgedminand there's a set of defined bash completions (in the bash-completion package) that knows about some programs but not about others09:35
mgedminsome shells (fish!) try to infer possible completions from installed manual pages09:35
acebrianjuanOk. So if I write my own program, can I create a bash completion?09:37
acebrianjuanIf that makes any sense09:37
=== ae is now known as Guest77580

EriC^lapion: does "id" list cdrom as a group10:33
lapionI am using root10:33
mgedmindoes the cd-rw/dvd-rw have a valid filesystem that's currently mounted?10:34
lapionIt's an audio cd and no matter hwta I do it's not unmountable10:34
mgedmin"locked by gnome or systemd", can you elaborate what that means?10:35
lapionWell I know at least gnome keeps the disk mounted as audio.. probably systemd has nothing ot do with it..10:37
mgedminI don't believe the kernel supports mounting audio CDs10:41
mgedminI believe that gvfs allows accessing audio CDs as if it were a filesystem full of WAV files, but that's all in userspace10:41
mgedminand it shouldn't be keeping the device open all the time, if nothing accesses those files?10:42
mgedmincan you check if there are any processes keeping the device open?  fuser -v /dev/sr* /dev/sg* in a terminal can be helpful10:42
lapionI logged out, logged into a console killed all perviously logged-in's user processes and now it appears to be blanking the cd10:45
lapionBut the same problem appear at burn time because the DE locks the drive for on-the-fly creation and doesn't release for brasero or any other frontend or backend disk burining software10:46
mgedmin'DE' is a bunch of cooperating processes and it would be useful to see (via fuser and ps) which one it is10:52

drupolStyXman: nothing no...13:50
BluesKajdrupol, ask your reral questio, why do think you need to reinstall ubuntu-release-upgrader-core?13:54
drupolBluesKaj: I did a mistake by installing kde neon. I'd like to go back to regular ubuntu...13:54
BluesKajubuntu or kubuntu?13:55
drupolfirst ubuntu, then kubuntu, then kde neon13:58
drupolOh sorry13:58
drupolI'd like to restore 20.04 kubuntu.13:58
drupolYeah... get rid of KDE Neon stuff13:59
StyXmandrupol: remove kubuntu-desktop, I guess13:59
drupolnope, wont work14:00
StyXmanuse aptitude and search for kde and remove everything14:00

drupolthis is a corporate laptop14:01
drupolI cannot reinstall14:01
StyXmandrupol: kde neon is not part of ubuntu, is it?14:01
drupolno it's not14:01
StyXmanthen don't complain to us that kde neon fscked the system14:01
StyXmanrolling back is going to be painful14:02
StyXmanit *is* possible, just install on the same machine but remove everything *except* /home (and maybe backup /etc) and *don't* format the partitions14:03

StyXmanok, I changed my problem: I'm in the TUI server installer, I just reformated a disk with GPT, I have / properly defined, I have the EFI (ef00) partition there, the installer tells me I have to select a boot disk. I try to select the disk for booting, but the meny entry is greyed. I also try to use the EFI partition, and it tells me 'this is an esp as required by uefi, if this disk is selected as a boot device, grub will use it' and doesn't allow me to14:14
StyXman use the disk to boot!14:14
EriC^StyXman: boot device or bootloader installation device?14:18
StyXmanthe (last) message says 'boot device'14:19
StyXmanand I tried to select 'use the disk for booting'14:19
EriC^hmm, maybe they mean the /boot partition?14:20

hejkkihello. Can i somehow "semi automatically" build a package such as gnome-terminal from source in ubuntu? I think i need to apply some build options that aren't present on the system by default (to allow RTL text to work)15:11

linux_daemonhello everyone, i have lenovo thinkpad e480, installed ubuntu 20.04 on it, and the only problem i have, the laptop has headphone/mic combo, when i put the headphones on it, if i play music on youtube or anywhere else, i will not hear it on the headphones, but only on the speakers. tried all solutions i could find on google, but no luck15:45
linux_daemoncan anyone help me with that?15:46
xbfrog are your headphones plugin or bluetooth?15:47
xbfrogplugin? test your headphones on another plugin system like home stereo or boombox or smartphone15:49
linux_daemonheadphones, headphones jack. it is weird - it started working now15:50
linux_daemoni guess i have no more issues :D15:50
xbfrogperhaps loose headphone jack or computer jack15:50
xbfrogif it happens again try another headphone if you have one15:51
linux_daemonno, i guess the fixes required the laptop to be shut down, and turned back on, rather than the suggested reboot15:51
linux_daemoni have several pairs of headphones, and they all work now15:52
linux_daemonyes, odd, but it works now15:52

lokushello. i'm trying to install a package on a ubuntu 14 machine behind a network hop that can't access apt-get repos (no gateway). i have another ubuntu 18 system that is connected. what's a simple way to grab specific versioned .deb's that i could scp over to install?16:17
enyclokus: fwiw ubuntu 14.04 lts  is  no longer supported16:17
enyclokus: you could set up a  squid3  proxy on the ubuntu 18.04 system16:17
lokusenyc: okay, the machine is ubuntu 16. same problem16:17
enyclokus: you may need to use special  old-releases.ubuntu.com   in soruces.list to get some old release apt packages16:18
enyclokus: though, it seems  trusty (14.04) is actually still no  the main archive servers at the moment16:19
lokusokay, was hoping for like a command line option to provide version.16:19
enyclokus: hrrm...   packages.ubuntu.com web interface?16:19
lokusoh yes? i will look there16:19
enychrrm looks like it doesn't show trusty any more16:20
lokusmay just try ssh tunnel otherwise16:20
enycit will 16.04 xenial though16:20
enyclokus: yes, you shuold be able to get 14.04 properly updated to last released patches16:20
lokusi thought i remembered doing this before.. apt-get install'ing specific versions (not --download-only), in this case. but perhaps it was still within the same major release16:20
enyclokus: yes, you can  apt-get -yd install SOMETHING    and download debs  for CURRENT system that way, which end up in  /var/cache/apt/archives16:21
lokusah, okay. thank you16:21
enyclokus: however, do seriously consider just building a 20.04 system to do what you need  rather than patching a 14.04  in all honesty may be better use of resources16:21
enyclokus: that only good if you have another 14.04 or 16.04 system   and in any case you can have lal sorts of nonsense with  dependencies16:22
lokusenyc: this is a lab target i need to install a networking performance tool on. that's it..16:22
enyclokus: yes, may be better to ssh tunnel a proxy to it... so it can apt-get update  etc directly16:22
enyclokus: [i can help with the proxy whatnot]16:24
lokusthanks very much, will try this quick16:25

acebrianjuanHi all, random question here. If you were to define a program flag to print the version of said program in the terminal buffer but you couldn't use the obvious (-v) becuase it's already being used for another purpose, what would be your choice?19:16
Habbie-V, --version, leave it to dpkg19:16
acebrianjuanFor instance, some programs use the -v for verbose output19:16
Habbieprint it in -h19:16
acebrianjuanHabbie: Thanks!19:17
Habbienp :)19:17
acebrianjuanWhat do you mean by "leave it to dpkg" ?19:17
Habbiethis is #ubuntu; the assumption is that any software on the system was installed through the usual methods of software installation on ubuntu19:17
Habbiethat means that dpkg knows the versions of everything19:17
kxslCheetz, you will probably have to edit xorg.conf and look the docs for that and that driver19:17
pavlosCheetz: I think you need to make a custom xorg.conf and for the 4th moitor pass the BusID parameter like PCI:5:0:019:18
