tgp1994Hi everyone, sorry if this is a dumb question - I'm using Ubuntu server 18.04. My primary terminal is getting spammed with what looks like dmesg/debug output that should normally be sent to the messages/logging terminal. Any ideas how I can silent this output on my main terminal?00:17
naribiahello, I'm trying to get amdgpu drivers installed on Ubuntu 20.04, via "./amdgpu-pro-install --opencl=legacy,pal --headless"00:18

randmin_342Hi, I use DNS over VPN, and it's working with ipv4. I also get a ping to the DNS Server via ip6. However, if I disable ip4, I cannot resolve any domain names. Where would I start debugging this (e.g. does ubuntu work with ip6 only?) Could be that the DNS (pihole) is not set up to resolve ip6 (but it seems to be). Any help/hints are highly appreciated.01:45
oerheksthere is #pihole here on #freenode01:46
randmin_342I was not sure if this may be related to how ubuntu handles ip4/6, but I will ask there, too.01:48

bendmanhas there been discussion of including .AppImage support (prompt to make executable, register as a desktop application, etc) to Ubuntu? I'm thinking something similar to .dmg file installation on macos.12:08
mgedminbendman: no, but canonical seems to be strategically focused on snaps in exclusion to all other package formats12:10
bendmanusers can already manually setup each package themselves or try to find some working daemon that handles it, but I'm thinking the user experience could easily be better12:10
bendmanmgedmin: thanks for the response. with different competing packages would it make sense and be possible to add a .AppImage package handler to the snap store? I've never built a snap package myself, so I'm not sure of the limitations.12:12
mgedminI have zero familiarity with appimages (and I've never tried to build a snap either)12:12
bendmanalright, I'll look more into it, thanks!12:14

samdragonI'm on 20.04 (5.4 kernel) but want to see if a wifi hw bug doesnt repro in with the 5.3 kernel. In general is downgrading kernels like that risky or not that big a deal?13:00
Maiksamdragon: 5.3 kernel is EOL afaik13:02
jpdssamdragon: Just pick the old kernel in GRUB13:02
ace_meit looks barrier refuses to connect with ubuntu 2013:04
ace_mein 18 I was using synergy and it worked13:04
ace_meany hints13:04
ace_meI did also ufw allow 2480013:04
samdragonI only have 5.4.X versions of the kernel in grub, so id have to install it, but Im a noob and not sure if downgrading like that to an outdated kernel will make everything blow up13:08
samdragongranted its only 5.4 -> 5.3 so maybe its not a big deal and i should just try it13:08
jpdssamdragon: Kernel installs are not the same as a normal package install13:09
jpdssamdragon: They install a new kernel separately13:09
jpdsThey don't downgrade/upgrade anything13:09
samdragonim under the assumption that maybe there are landmines Im not aware of, like all the packages ive got installed will only work with the newer kernel, ie theyve been compiled/conigured for 5.4 and if I boot with 5.3 then some random crucial package or app would blow up13:11
jpdssamdragon: You're wrong13:11
jpdsUserspace applications are not tied directly to a kernel13:11
jpdsOtherwise, you'd have to reinstall everything everytime there was a new kernel13:12
samdragonok that sounds like im concerned about a non issue13:12
jpdssamdragon: And again, you can just reboot, go to GRUB, and boot back into another kernel version13:12
samdragonthanks, gonna give it a try13:13
Ether_ManHey so, in linux5.9 there's a driver added for rtl8821ce. That kernel is currently rc8 so I'd assume released soon. How long before that's installable with that driver available after that? I assume I'll have to run HWE or something ofc13:14
Ether_ManOr perhaps, is there some way to use the rc already (in a supported way that is)13:16
MaikEther_Man: HWE only gives you kernels from a new buntu release. Once 20.10 is out as stable 5.8 might show up as HWE13:16

jpdsEther_Man: The .deb sure13:38

xfechxHello everyone15:15
xfechxI am having trouble creating new users and the new user doesn't have a 'pretty' prompt15:16
xfechxdon't know much about this, so looking for the tip, on how to make new users keep the same 'pretty' bash prompt15:16
xfechxlike username@hostname: ~/15:16
pavlosxfechx: did you create new user via gui?15:23
xfechxno, everything is terminal (server, ssh)15:23
pavlosxfechx: did you make home dir for that user15:24
xfechxwhen I change to that user, I only get a $15:25
pavlosxfechx: that user should have a ~/.bashrc, same as every other user. In there the prompt is set15:25
xfechxyes - I have copied the .bashrc from other user where it works, and nothing...15:25
xfechxetc, still the same15:25
pavlosxfechx: .bashrc has if/then blocks -- the terminal is xterm or something else.15:27
xfechxnot sure how to check this15:27
xfechxwhy would it be different than the main user ?15:27
pavlosxfechx: echo $TERM15:28
pavlosxfechx: I have xterm-256color so my ssh sessions provide a color PS115:28
xfechxyes, my main ssh session is OK, with colour, and everything good15:29
xfechxif I su other_user15:29
xfechxthen other_user has a super basic prompt, only "$"15:29
pavlosxfechx: su - otheruser (dash will force to source their .bashrc iirc15:30
xfechxnope... doesn't work15:30
ioriaxfechx, are you sure you're using Bash ? echo $SHELL15:32
xfechxin the user that works, it uses /bin/bash15:44
xfechxin the user that doesn't work15:44
pavlosxfechx: yes ... ioria asked you a question15:44
xfechxah sorry, @ior15:45
xfechxthe user that doesn't work uses /bin/sh , instead of /bin/bash15:45
ioriaxfechx, so, you have your answer├╣15:45
xfechxok, but why is that new user using sh instead of bash, and how can I swap it for that user?15:46
ioriaxfechx, 'cause of useradd15:46
ioriaxfechx, instead of adduser15:46
xfechxahhh I see....15:46
ioriaxfechx, https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/479086/newly-created-user-on-ubuntu-server-has-the-wrong-shell-prompt15:47
xfechxso adduser -m will make it bash and homedir ?15:47
xfechxhow can I amend this ?15:47
xfechxdelete user, etc, or ?15:47
ioriaxfechx, if you now want bash as default  (but i suggest to us adduser) you need to reconfigure dash15:51
xfechxok, I think it might be easier to just delete and re add user15:51
omega_doomhello. During ubuntu loading i have "Press CTRL+C to cancel all filesystem checks in progress". What do i need to do?15:53

xbfrogbut i have no expertise with xrandr16:16
xbfrogjelly: this is a cli setting and i hated it when i had windows, and terminal isnt convincing me16:17
xbfrogso...is this screen setting even possible with xrandr?16:18
xbfrogneed help16:18
xbfrogJelly: if not here, where would i go for help?16:19
jellyxbfrog, do you have multiple monitors connected right now?  pastebin the output of "xrandr -q"16:25
jellyxbfrog, dunno, this seems the optimal channel for end user issues in ubuntu, if it's too quiet you can try and see whether ##linux is more active16:26
jellyxbfrog, did the "maximize" thing make any difference?16:27
jelly(did you try Alt-Space then that, at all)16:27
xbfrogyes but it takes the whole 3 monitor desktop16:27
jellyah, that's unusual16:27

ace_meSad :( It was 20 years ago when I was in charge of a network based on 20 red hat systems in a Internet cafe. The clients were coming on that P1 PC's and were clicking on netscape communicator to browse the internet. An "loading" gif was shown on their NC launch for 1-2 seconds than the mouse cursor was shown again, and they click again to the icon in order to launch the expected program. Again 2-3 seconds and a normal cursor. Of course the c17:17
ace_mesometimes after 2-3 minutes of clicks, 10-20 windows with desired program were shown. It was , as I've said a P1 computer 333 Mhz. Nowadays we have 2.x Ghz computers 4-24 GB of RAM (10x-40x more ram) faster HDDS, but UBUNTU 20.04 is saying the same story on a powerfull i7 PC. Incredible stubborn team.17:17
xbfrogJelly: yes its running thru a matrox triplehead2go17:17
ace_meThere is really no solution to keep a loading icon over a launched program with a small window (lik in windows) showing everyone that a program will soon fill that window ... or a better option ???   ? ? ?17:18
ace_meNobody feels the same as I do regarding this bad experience on starting some programs in some circumstances ?17:19
xbfrogjelly: matrox supports the higher resolution of 5760x1080 but says it will need displayport17:19
xbfrogJelly: but i'm reading there is virtually no difference between displayport and hdmi. dp is used for projectors17:20

SteelRosehi all!18:37
SteelRosea little help here...18:37
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience18:38
SteelRosecould you guys tell me whether Ubuntu has a similiar file to /etc/init.d/functions (RPM: initscripts)  in CentOS?18:38
tomreynsupported ubuntu releases use systemd for service management18:40
tomreynif you can tell what you're trying to achieve, and on which ubuntu release, providing a better answer may be possible.18:41
SteelRosetomreyn, I know... so does CentOS 8... but that functions file contains, well, some nice functions which you can use to print [ OK ] or [ ERROR ] when the return code of a command either succeeds or fails... which is pretty cool and saves me coding an extra function :-)18:45
SteelRosei.e....  Hacking into the Pentagon   [ OK ]18:46
SteelRosesurely you know what I mean18:46
tomreynyes, you want to Go directly to Jail. Do not pass GO, do not collect $20018:47
SteelRosetomreyn, LOL18:47
tomreyni guess systemd must have something for this as well, but i'm not sure how you 'd do this. i guess you probably just define a service.18:48
tomreyn*service unit18:48
SteelRosehttps://www.tecmint.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Find-and-Fix-Linux-Boot-Issues.png  this shows what I mean...18:52
SteelRosesee the OK, FAILED, etc?18:52
tomreynyes, those are systemd messages about success and failure of bringing up system service units18:53
pavlosSteelRose: are these called run level control functions ?18:54
tomreynyou get to see those if you boot without "quiet"18:54
tomreynand without "splash", too18:54
SteelRoseOK, on CentOS you can use them by sourcing /etc/iinit.d/functions ... even when systemd is controlling everything18:55

jwhitmoreDon't know what update applied over the last few days, but Pulseview has stopped working for me: pulseview: symbol lookup error: /tmp/.mount_PulseVxsUxjR/usr/lib/libsigrok.so.4: undefined symbol: libusb_get_version18:59
jwhitmoreHave libusb-dev installed so not sure what has changed19:00
tomreyn!info pulseview19:00
ubottupulseview (source: pulseview): sigrok logic analyzer, oscilloscope, and MSO GUI. In component universe, is extra. Version 0.4.1-1build1 (focal), package size 635 kB, installed size 2234 kB19:01
jwhitmoreyes that's the one19:01
TJ-jwhitmore: is that a snap or a regular package installed from the archives?19:01
jwhitmoreI have been using the regular package installed from the repo with apt-get install pulseview up till now. But when I hit this problem an hour ago I downloaded the app image from pulse view to try that and got the same error. I've not installed the snap package19:08
=== enko is now known as enkoh
TJ-jwhitmore: ok; the reason I asked was the reported path would not be the archive package (/tmp/.mount_PulseVxsUxjR/))19:10
TJ-jwhitmore: which Ubuntu release are you using? I ask since 20.04 has libusb 0.1-4 and 1.0-019:11
=== bildramer1 is now known as bildramer
TJ-jwhitmore: so that symbol isn't in 0.1-4 but is in 1.0-0 so I'm guessing the package is linking the wrong version19:14
TJ-jwhitmore: compare: " ls -l /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libusb-* "19:15
=== enko-h is now known as enkoh
TJ-tomreyn: have you seen any reports on 20.04 of the touchpad movement being lost after S3 resume (but button presses continue to work) ?19:17
tomreynTJ-: i remember a recent report about "touchpad not working", but that was about all the info provided,a nd i didn't follow up. and a single report only.19:18
TJ-tomreyn: thanks. I've experienced it several times recently including right now. I've a thinkpad so the nipple still works for movement although difficult to control precisely. Not found any clues so far as to why19:19
jwhitmoreI have two so should probably remove one. Probably the later? /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libusb-0.1.so.4 -> libusb-0.1.so.4.4.4     /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libusb-1.0.so -> /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libusb-1.0.so.0.2.019:19
tomreynTJ-: might it need a firmware update, which could be distributed seperately and be windows-only? i know, this should happen out of the blue.19:20
TJ-jwhitmore: 1.0.so is the one that DOES contain the symbol - but it isn't clear why we have both, or why your software is linking the older version and failing when it was OK earlier19:20
TJ-tomreyn: doubt it - I tend to think this is an Xorg issue, since a display-manager restart wil solve it19:21
TJ-tomreyn: and the device buttons are working - just no movement reported19:21
tomreynhmm, ok, i'll be of no use there.19:22
jwhitmoreTJ-, thanks, I assumed that a recent update had caused it. I'll try remove 0.1.419:22
TJ-tomreyn: we have several identical models though I'm the only one that stresses mine, so only mine has so far experienced it. I tend to suspend/resume frequently as well19:23
tomreyni use a mouse whenever possible19:24
tomreyn(or just keyboard)19:25
TJ-jwhitmore: since pulseview doesn't directly depend on libusb, I'd guess this is caused by another library that pulseview depends on and that in turn requires libusb19:26
TJ-tomreyn: so do I normally but I'm in bed now :)19:26
TJ-jwhitmore: you could check the recent package installation history in /var/log/apt/history.log  - look at the dates immediately before the problem started19:27
TJ-jwhitmore: this command might help you find packages with recent update timestamps whose changelogs mention libusb: " find /usr/share/doc -type f -name changelog.Debian.gz -exec zgrep -ln libusb {} \; | while read f; do ls -l $f; done "19:32
jwhitmoreTJ-, thanks I'll try figure out some info on this19:35
TJ-jwhitmore: I can't think why but on the face of it it would appear that some library has *lowered* the version of libusb it depends on. This command will show you the names of all packages that depend on the 0.1-4 package: " apt-cache rdepends libusb-0.1-4 "19:38
jwhitmoreTJ-, thanks for your help you'll have to leave it with me till I muddle though what's happened19:45

whiztertomreyn, thanks, i hope 'pacmd set-default-sink 2' did it. have to reboot to check if that worked.20:24

tomreynwhizter: i think this isn't permanent, but you could probably add it to an init file such as .bash_profile20:42
tomreynor you could configure it permanently with an alsa configuration file.20:42
whiztertomreyn: thanks, i'll test that tomorrow, it's not that important for me that i'd do a reboot now. just a little annoying :)20:46
TJ-I think the local user config saves the Pulseaudio default device config20:47
IoannisJVMHi friends,i'm trying to dual boot a Windoews laptop and install ubuntu 20.04 LTS but when i'm facing an issue about Intel RST21:14
IoannisJVMi didn't manage to configure that out21:14
IoannisJVMIt says that i need to disable the RST21:15
oerheksi think it is an UEFI thing, RST21:15
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI21:15
TheWildUpdate from 18.04 to 20.04 was long but ended without major problems.21:20
TheWildI have some unpolished corners though... and guess what? I'm going to check one more setting and will get back21:20
TheWildi3 on this OS, updated from 18.04 to 20.04 doesn't look as good as i3 installed on office computer with Ubuntu 20.04 just installed.21:26
TheWildthis is the worst at the moment: https://pasteboard.co/JuibGwL.png21:28
TheWildsomething loads that light skin and while terminal is black, the scroll bars are light-gray. Menu is light-gray too when I enable it.21:28
Master666hi guys, can someone help me to install to on Ubuntu 12.0421:30
TJ-TheWild: same with a fresh new user account too? or just your regular account?21:30
Master666it is 32 bit21:30
TheWildTJ-: I'll try21:31
TheWild(I'm the only user on this computer)21:31
TJ-TheWild: it may be caused by inherited config21:31
kxslim trying to use ubuntu 20.04 on a raspberry pi. I've already logged in and installed mate-desktop. i want to use the CLI to do a few more things, so I switch to one of the virtual terminals with Ctrl+Alt+F2, but how do you switch back to the mate login? It doesn't seem to be anywhere F1-F1221:32
matsamankxsl: +F7, usually21:32
matsamankxsl: you might be able to use the 'chvt' command, too21:32
oerheksMaster666, no, 12.04 is EOL, no suppport21:33
kxslmatsaman, no it's not there and I can't type anything. i can't switch to any other terminal once I switch away from the one on F221:33
oerhekssuch machines without huge bugfixes should not be connected to the internet.21:33
Master666<oerheks> Hi Sir, so Tor won't work?21:33
matsamankxsl: you can't type anything? Well that's your primary problem, then21:34
matsamankxsl: can you ssh in?21:34
kxslI'm not sure, but I can try once I get it booted again21:34
TJ-kxsl: wired or wireless keyboard?21:35
oerheksMaster666, tor? no, as 12.04 is End Of Life.21:36
oerheksus a supported version, 16.04/18.0421:36
kxslmatsaman, wireless keyboard. I can't ssh in, it says connection refused21:37
TheWildTJ-: new account is even worse21:37
oerhekshttps://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/18.04/release/ gives 32 bit.21:37
TheWildThe "system default" colors for terminal are black text on white background.21:37
matsamankxsl: well then you might have to reboot21:37
TJ-TheWild: so something to do with (lack of) default theme possibly?21:38
kxslmatsaman, I've been doing that. I can't switch to any working terminal or type anything in the one I'm on21:38
TJ-kxsl: check the logs after it reboots21:39
matsamankxsl: after reboot you can't?21:39
TheWildTJ-: I have no clue now whether some service loads the light theme now, or it was loading dark theme back then and now it's missng21:39
Master666oerheks my version is not 12.0421:40
Master666Description:Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS21:40
kxslhow? what logs to look at for this?21:40
TheWildoh wait, I think I got a clue21:40
Master666It has to do with expired ring signature21:41
Master666When installing tor21:41
TJ-kxsl: first stop would be look at the last boot log, at its end before it rebooted. "journalctl -b -1 -n 250" will show the last 250 lines of the previous sesion... you may need to increase that number to go back and find clues, or you can ommit the -n 250 entirely and review the entire session log21:42
MaikMaster666: you said you have 12.04 32bit installed21:43
Master666Ok I made a mistake Maik it is Description:Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS21:44
kxslTJ-, ok, I don't see any errors in that. just info messages from gdm and systemd21:44
TJ-kxsl: is the keyboard bluetooth?21:44
kxslTJ-, no21:44
TJ-kxsl: in that log do you see shutdown messages or does it abruptly stop since you killed the powe?21:44
TJ-kxsl: so a wireless USB dongle ?21:45
kxslTJ-, right, it just stops. i can't get it to respond at all once i switch away from F2. pulling the plug is the only thing to do21:45
TheWilddidn't make it :/21:46
Master666Maik I am getting a message expired Ring Signature all the time when installing21:46
MaikMaster666: there are many users having the same issues with installing Tor lately. Best to search for reports on that matter. I don't use it so i can't help you with that.21:46
Maikinfo should be out there on the web21:46
TJ-kxsl: so now you have to determine if the RasPi is simply freezing. You could do that by causing it to fail again and noting the EXACT time to the second. Then reboot, examine the log again, and see if there are log entries after the time you noted... and how long logging continues. If the timestamps don't carry on much after the noted time it might indicate the RasPi froze up21:47
ash_worksidoes ^[[D communicate something other than simply "left arrow" ?21:54
matsamannot sure it communicates that21:55
ash_worksilike I kind of wanted to jot down some shortcut keys; I generally use ^ for "ctrl+" (eg: ^a)21:55
ash_worksiif I use ctrl+v in my terminal, I can get raw codes, for example ^[ = escape21:55
ash_worksiI generally would have to perform some kind of escape-key acrobatics if I were going to write colors in vim for example21:56
matsamanto what end21:56
ash_worksiif I use ctrl+v and then press the left arrow, it prints ^[[D21:56
ash_worksiso I wondered, does ^[[D mean = "escape" + {something else} ?21:57
ash_worksimatsaman: it's just easier to annotate when I'm trying write some things down21:57
ash_worksithanks matsaman21:58
oerheksubuntu suggests to use the tor package from their site, or follow this page to fix the key https://itsfoss.com/install-tar-browser-linux/21:59
oerheksgpg --homedir "$HOME/.local/share/torbrowser/gnupg_homedir" --refresh-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com21:59
oerheksbut this does not work for the snap version21:59
ash_worksiI was getting results for people who have problems with CSI printing instead of doing what they expect21:59
ash_worksiand indeed, esc + [ + shift-d = move left21:59
ash_worksihowever, ctrl + left arrow => jump back a word, but ctrl + (esc, [, shift-d) does not22:01
kxsli just screwed up my raspberry pi shrinking /. is there a special way to do this? you can't just use parted to resize?22:15
oerheksgrowing a partition can be done from within the system, shrinking only with the live iso.22:16
TJ-kxsl: parted doesn't deal with the file-system inside the partition22:16
kxslTJ-, are you sure? I thought it did. That's the whole point of using it22:17
TJ-kxsl: no, the 'part' in parted is a big clue. read its man-page, for "resizepart"22:20
kxslso what is good for resizing a partition AND filesystem. different tools doing only one isn't useful, especially if they don't cooperate22:21
TJ-the GUI tool gparted wraps all the functionality22:22
TJ-which is totally different to the CLI tool parted!22:22
TJ-kxsl: this is why using LVM can be such a pleasure - it handles all this and much more elegantly22:24
kxsli really want to use a cli program here. restoring the image, updating it, and installing a gui is going to take literally hours22:24
kxslTJ-, i'm trying to use a raspberry pi. it's just an image written to a SD card, then booted. there is no installer and no provision for customizing how it's set up22:25
TJ-kxsl: all you need do is move the SD-card to a PC and use gparted from there to fix the partitioning - presumably all that is needed is to make the partition the maximum size once again?22:25
TJ-kxsl: the Rasbian images have an auto-expand operation on first boot. Does the Ubuntu image do the same?22:26
TJ-sorry, no longer Raspbian... RasPi OS :)22:26
kxslyeah, / takes up the entire card. no way to make another partition to use encryption or a different filesystem22:28
kxslbut you're right about using gparted on another computer, i can do that22:28
TJ-kxsl: in the #raspberrypi channel the sole Ubuntu developer hangs out; I think his nick is waveform or similar. Might be worth asking for advice from him.22:30
kxslTJ-, thanks, I'll check it out22:31
TJ-kxsl: I usually write my own images, and use LVM always. That way I only need to allocate minimal space to the required file-systems initially and can expand them on-line as needed, as well as adding others, some ephemeral, some for experiments, etc.22:33
TJ-kxsl: e.g. "{lvreduce | lvextend} --resizefs ... "22:33
Richard_CavellTJ-, I have another question from yesterday22:35
Richard_CavellI have found that in order to boot the Ubuntu live DVD well, I need to add pnpbios=off to my boot options.22:35
Richard_CavellIf I don't add that, I get a warning telling me to add it.22:35
Richard_CavellCould that possibly be the cause of my disappearing hard disk?22:36
Richard_Cavell(Ubuntu does not think that I have an internal hard disk, even though I do)22:36

xbfrogi'm looking for information. i'm wanting to use a resolution of 5760x1080. i know that Ubuntu only goes as high as 3072x768. My matrox triplehead2go  supports this higher resolution. Can the software be changed? and by who? Who would i contact to see if there is any possiblity to up the resolution that Ubuntu 20.04 uses? Is this a Ubuntu issue or a limitation of the graphics driver?22:38
TJ-Richard_Cavell: pnpbios - possibly yes, that could cause it22:42

Master666Hi Guys please who else is having problems intalling tor on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS 32 bit?23:08
Master666Problem is with ring signatures23:09
tieinvUsers of the i386 architecture will not be presented with an upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Support for i386 as a host architecture was dropped in 19.10.23:11
Richard_CavellI don't think there's any such thing as 20.04 32 bit23:13
oerheksMaster666, from tor? read back, i gave an url and solution,, maybe there is no 32 bit tor browser?23:14

pavlosMaster666: type uname -a23:18
geniiIt will be 64bit23:19
genii..because there is no 32bit version of Focal23:19

cluelesspersonhrm, ubuntu is feeling extremely laggy23:33
cluelesspersonseems whenever I type or change the screen it slows down23:33
signofzetai have a similar issue.  are you running your screens in fractional scaling mode?  if I turn that off, I have to squint, but things are noticeably faster (AMD Radeon RX480).23:34
signofzetai mean, with my hardware, it's not an issue, but it is a little noticeable23:34
cluelesspersonsignofzeta, No.  It was perfect up until like yesterday?23:37
cluelesspersonit's sooooooo slow23:37
signofzetaoh, then my issue must be separate.  it doesn't bother me, though.23:37
cluelesspersonit's torture waiting for every mouse click to load a menu or just typing to take a second to load the text23:37

oerhekscluelessperson, shocking :-P23:47
Master666ok signofzeta how do I install this? do I use terminal or search software centre?23:48
signofzetaMaster666, you'd need to use the terminal.  the version in Ubuntu's repos is a little old.  hold on, I'll get you a link.23:48
cluelesspersonoerheks, yeah, but it's unclear what the problem is or how to find it23:48
signofzetaMaster666:  directions included here: https://2019.www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en23:49
signofzetaadd that PPA, apt update, and apt install like it says.23:50
Master666Ok signofzeta let me try this23:50
Bashing-omMaster666: Will want to "purge" the present tor install .23:51
signofzetaI updated Ubuntu's Tor with Tor's Tor and it was fine, but a purge certainly wouldn't hurt23:52
