hotsouphello all. I have a permission problem I am trying to work out.  I am trying to change the group on a folder owned by root.  sudo chgrp -R medialib /medialib doesn't work  When I su Root (the account that owns the directory) The command fails with "Operation not permitted"  I thought Root was all powerful. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.04:10
rfmhotsoup, what file system type is /medialib?  ("mount | grep /medialib" to check)04:15
hotsoup/dev/sdb2 on /medialib type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096,x-gvfs-show)04:17
hotsoupformatted as exfat04:17
rfmhotsoup, ok then.  exfat doesn't support unix file ownership (since it's a windows file system.)  you want to change the user id in the mount from 0 to the userid you want shown.  Unfortunately I don't know how to do that since you're apparently having gvfs mount it and I don't understand that at all...04:20
rfmhotsoup, here's a stackexchange post that shows and example of how to mount it via fstab, specifying uid=   https://askubuntu.com/questions/923691/ownership-permission-problem-with-automounting-exfat-drive04:25
pavloshotsoup: do you have a group called medialib ?04:26
pavloshotsoup: changed recursively the files inside /medialib to belong to group cento, https://imgur.com/a/wBjzORj04:28
hotsoupThanks for the note about issues with exfat. My TV's only support NTFS / fat32 or exfat. Figured that was the lesser of three evils. I have to read the stack exchange to figure out if its a filesystem change or some fstab fu I need to workout04:52

DiezelHi folks, my laptop screen stays on using an external display on my Thinkpad with dock. Not a huge issue, but the mousepointer shows as well so I'm worried it will burn in06:20
Diezelxrandr does not detect the laptop screen either, nor does nvidia-settings06:21
Diezelwondering if anyone seen something like this and knows how to kill the laptop screen06:21
dw1not really a solution but you could decrease brightness to 006:22
DiezelApfound someone else having similar issues, apparently it's the Xorg.conf that nvidia-settings creates that creates the issue. I'll delete it reboot and see what happens.06:24
dw1"The problem was the VGA cable, I thought it should make two displays but instead, it was doubling the display"06:25
dw1" In Settings>Devices>Displays what is selected? "Join Displays" or "Mirror" or "Single Display""06:26
ledenDiezel: fon't delete just rename it06:28
Diezelrenaming the xorg.conf from nvidia-settings solved it. dw1 there was only one display visible, so no way to do anything else than single display06:28
Diezelmust have been an update to the nvidia stuff, oh well. Works fine now06:30

ThinkT510LordChaos: isn't there backwards incompatible changes? you can't upgrade without losing data08:41
ThinkT510!latest | LordChaos08:42
ubottuLordChaos: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.08:42
LordChaosThinkT510: I was not aware about the compability issues, thanks08:43
ThinkT510LordChaos: they mention it in the release notes, hence a new big version number08:44
ThinkT510certainly something you wouldn't want updating automatically08:45

thms0Hi. I have a CIFS mount that works when I "sudo mount". I would like Nautilus / user to be able to mount it. My research tells me there is a "user" option to add to /etc/fstab but it seems to be missing in ubuntu Focal. When I add it it says "wrong option". Any idea how I can mount the CIFS folder without having to run sudo mount in the terminal ?09:08
k_szeAnd now I get a pop up telling me I can upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04.1. I just don't know whether that's a good idea, given the complaints I've seen about the move of packages to Snap.09:31
computer2000Hi all. I need to setup a mini pc for an outdoor vistor kiosk application that should just show one electron chromium app that lets the user browse through a static website and watch some mp4 videos. Is Ubuntu Server with NODM and OpenBox a good choice for this?09:34
jellyk_sze, you'll have 18.04 supported until 2023-ish, but eh.  If I want to run a recent remmina on 18.04 I have to use snaps right now.  And regular upgrades installed snapd & friends on my 18.04  already09:39
jellyeven if I didn't ask them to09:39
jellyso I guess you won't see much difference there09:40
jellyk_sze, did you manage to have workstations on bionic without snapd being pushed on you?09:40
mgedminthms0: pastebin your /etc/fstab and the error you get?09:40
k_szejelly, I forget. I think I have always had snapd.09:41
jellyI've upgraded this particular installation from 14.04 -> 16.04 -> 18.04, and I'm pretty sure snapd got installed only during 18.04 lifetime09:41
k_szewell, yes, snapd comes by default in 18.0409:42
lxusr50k sze, I'm pretty sure snap was introduced after the 16.04 LTS.09:42
jellythen you're already seeing the boot slowdown and all the bad snapd things.  Might as well do a release upgrade to get all the shiny new things.09:42
lxusr50If you are just running the desktop version it probably won't be much of an issue.09:42
mgedminthms0: although you don't need anything in /etc/fstab to mount CIFS shares in Nautilus; you can navigate to 'Other locations' and find the Windows network there (or Ctrl+L and smb://server/share/)09:43
lxusr50I am not a fan of having updateds forced but there is some control allowed to have the updates happen in a window of your choice.09:43
mgedmink_sze: you can't stop progress by ignoring it; sooner or later you'll have to upgrade09:43
lxusr50I think with all the grumbling about forced updates we will eventually see a user option to control updates.09:44
mgedmink_sze: my approach is to upgrade early, test new technologies, and file bugs so the rough edges can get a chance of getting fixed sooner rather than later09:44
mgedminthe snapification of chromium has some rough edges (like webdriver plain doesn't work in wayland sessions), but on the whole it's usable09:45
mgedminthe most annoying part was loss of session/history if snap refresh upgrades the browser and you don't restart immediately, but I think that's fixed in the latest snaps09:45
k_szeahahahaha, that's so horrible.09:46
mgedminthe next most annoying part is probably the inability of opening html files in /tmp09:46
k_szedue to sandboxing?09:46
mgedminyeah, the snap container gets a tmpfs on its /tmp, so it can't see the real one09:46
thms0mgedmin: http://termbin.com/bkn9 this is my fstab. I get "operation permitted for root only" by Nautilus.09:47
mgedminbasically I started to use firefox for this use case; I'm not sure what I'll do if they snapify firefox in a future ubuntu release09:47
mgedminthms0: there's no 'user' in the options field for //marjorie/docs09:47
thms0mgedmin: if I add it it says "mount error(22): Invalid argument" (http://termbin.com/vzib)09:49
thms0ha... solved. "defaults" does not work for CIFS subsystems!09:50
mgedminhuh!  defaults is an alias for 'rw,suid,dev,exec,auto,nouser,async'09:51
mgedminmaybe it didn't like both user and nouser09:51
thms0The dmesg said: "Unknown mount option: defaults"09:51
mgedminthat is weird09:52

DarkTricklotuspsychje, when I start autoremove it does not offer me to remove old kernels11:51
DarkTricklotuspsychje, wht did you mean by "previous journal"?11:52
BluesKajHi all11:53
mgedminDarkTrick: the pastebin, how did you get it?11:57
mgedminDarkTrick: because if that's the first N lines of journalctl output, it could be something from a previous boot that happened weeks ago11:57
mgedmin(assuming ubuntu enables persistent journal these days)11:57
mgedminautoremove doesn't remove _all_ old kernels: it always keeps at least one spare, in case the latest one gets corrupted somehow11:58
DarkTricklotuspsychje, I just pastebin-ed the output of journalctl?12:03
mgedminthat's too short to be the entire output of journalctl12:03
mgedmincounting just the current boot, journalctl -b 0|wc -l says I have 32621 lines in my journal12:04
mgedmin(uptime is 6 days)12:04
DarkTrickThe window was too low on my screen I couldn't see the line counting :/12:04
mgedminusually journalctl -e is a good command: it shows the last 1000 lines, and focuses at the end12:04
mgedminbecause usually you're interested in things that have just happened12:05
mgedminsometimes 1000 lines is not enough, and then I go to journalctl -b 0, to show everything since last reboot12:05

Every morning after power up when I log in, once the desktop loads, any icons on the desktop do not get drawn and all of the launcher buttons do not respond to mouse clicks (nor does the top bar) so I have to CTL+ALT+F5 and login to a shell and reboot. If I move my ~/.config directory out of the way, then the desktop works OK for the rest of that day (sometimes15:37
theopensourcererthings like Chrome history etc... But the following day, after being powered down i have the same problem when I login in the morning. It's a PITA.15:37
theopensourcererHow do I go about debugging this?15:37
xdijei have samba shares \data and all subdirectories are controlled by groups acl, like \data\folder1 \data\folder2 is there a way to set folder1 and 2 read only from samba level not without changing the share structure as users should still accessing shares from \\server\data\folder115:38

tichunAfter waking from suspend laptops keyboard was not responding (e.g. no LED on capslock), mouse pointer was movable but clicking did nothing. Had to power off the device by the power button. Where to get logs from to form a bug report?17:14
mgedminjournalctl -b -1 -e17:15
mgedmin"keyboard not responding" has several levels of not responding; it's worth trying Caps Lock as you did, but then also Ctrl+Alt+F1 Ctrl+Alt+F2 to see if vt switching works17:16
rfmsqpp, groovy still in beta so #ubuntu+1 is where you want to be17:16
mgedminand finally Alt+SysRq+S, U, B to reboot safely after syncing and unmounting filesystems17:16
tichunThanks,  will do if that reproduces17:17
mbeierlah, yes, the famous Alt+SysRq R-E-I-S-U-B :)17:17
tichunWell, actually sorry, I'm using mainline kernel so my device works at all, i guess i cannot report that as a bug (kernel 5.8)17:18

tichunBrowsing through Ubuntu bugs, I cannot find interesting ones, as most relate to miscellaneous packages of little convergence with Ubuntu. Cannot a lot of weird packages be just pruned. keeping completely essential packages in main repo, and other packages in extension repositories that would have a separate bug trackers etc.?18:10
tichun51000 packages most definitely is not a sane number18:11

gnemabenhi. i am running a live distribution of ubuntu but firefox immediately closes whenever i try to open settings or when i visit certain websites (like wikipedia)18:28
gnemabenany idea why this might happen? it's not giving me an error18:28
gnemabenbut it's probably crashing anyway18:28
gnemabensettings, history, anything like that will crash it as well18:29
lotuspsychjegnemaben: try launching firefox from a terminal to collect errors18:29
lotuspsychjegnemaben: also open a journalctl -f18:29
gnemabenuhm, wow. i can't open a terminal either18:30
gnemabenoh, and sometimes the whole session will crash18:31
gnemabenand i have to log back in as a live session user18:31
gnemabenso something other than firefox is wrong that's probably causing all of this18:31
gnemabenbut it's hard to investigate if i can't even open a damn terminal18:31
gnemabenare live linuxes known to be problematic like this?18:35
bullegnemaben: no you should definitively be able to open a terminal18:35
gnemabeni see it saying terminal in the top left corner of the screen for a split second and it immediately goes away18:36
gnemabenthe actual window is never rendered18:36
gnemabencan't open other things such as a system monitor ether18:36
gnemabenit's ubuntu 20.04, btw18:37
gnemabenmaybe it's having serious issues with my hardware or something18:37
gnemabeni've been using this machine just fine from windows but... yeah18:37
gnemabeni tried a live debian too. wouldn't recognize my mouse18:38
bullegnemaben: if several different live setups dont work on hardware A, but works well with hardware B in windows18:38
bulleor, just dont work well on hardware A with linux, but works well with hardware A and windows18:39
bullewell then, you have already narrowed it down18:39
gnemabenyes. guessing linuxes don't really support this laptop18:39
bullegnemaben: new or old laptop ?18:40
tatertotsgnemaben: common denominator(s) are that specific computer .....and you18:40
gnemabenidk. i've had it for about one year18:40
gnemabenit has an i7, a gtx 1050. but i mostly use it for work18:40
bullei have had nothing but trouble with my i7 1065G7 based laptop in linux18:41
tatertotsgnemaben: do you own more than one computer?...Rule out 1of2 of those common denominators by using the LiveDVD/LiveUSB on a different PC18:41
gnemabeni do own several computers, yes. but i don't have access to any of them other than this laptop at this very moment18:42
tatertotsgnemaben: you'll just be chasing your own tail in circles unless those two common denominators are ruled out.18:43
tatertotsgnemaben: try not to get too dizzy LMAO18:43
gnemabeni expect the live usb does work on other machines. i just wrote the official image18:44
gnemabenmaybe not, but the chances are slim18:44
* WaltS48 is testing the Thunderbird 78.3.2 release candidate now. Hope we see 68.12.1 in the repo soon. :)18:44

tatertotsthey say repeating the same thing, while expecting a different result or out come is the clinical definition of....nevermind18:45

gnemaben"they say repeating the same thing" is a good indication of illiteracy :)18:47

pavlosgnemaben: how much ram on the system?18:50
gnemaben8 gb18:50
tatertotsround..and round..and round18:50
pavlosgnemaben: you're running a live ubuntu 20.04 and terminal/FF wont start?18:51
gnemabentatertots: let me help you read the situation as i see you are having some problems with it. i've explained the situation and have been answering people's questions since. you seem quite unintelligent with your remarks that are only meant to make you shine although... it's not working out at all.18:52
gnemabenso maybe keep quiet because you are embarrassing yourself.18:53
gnemabenpavlos: yes18:53
hggdhtatertots, gnemaben: let's keep it civel, please18:53
tatertotsunintelligent people don't bring up terms like "common denominator" with folk that don't seem "cognitive" of the term18:54
hggdhtatertots: enough18:54
tatertotshope "cognitive" isn't too big a word18:54
gnemabenyes, it is quite the accomplishment to know what a common denominator is. how did you achieve this level of intelligence?18:54
gnemabenand how are you not using it and misreading the situation saying i am repeating something and expecting different results?18:55
hggdhgnemaben: enough18:55
xjkxHi, long time not using ubuntu. This "Ubuntu Software" I had a hard time googling because it always tells me about google software center and then tell me that is deprecated. "Ubuntu Software" is community created packaged, or like official ubuntu developers add them there ? Kinda trying to figure which is better to get there or from the actual program site, so please shoot me some info so I can decide better18:59
xjkxubuntu software center* ops, sorry19:00
xjkxBut I'm n ot using the old one, I have ubuntu 2019:00
pavlosgnemaben: could your ram be faulty? can you boot the iso again and run memtest?19:02
xjkxneed to restart brb19:06
gnemabenpavlos: i ran the firmware's ram testing facility. also, i'd be surprised if that were the case cause i've been able to open many youtube tabs in firefox yet a not a single terminal19:08
xjkxback, anybody could tell me if the packages on "Ubuntu Center", from ubuntu 20, are packaged officially by ubuntu developers ?19:08
gnemabeni'd expect to not be able to do the "heavy" stuff either19:08

jm-hello everyone, so huh, I googled my problem but could not find anything close to what I experience. I upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 and now my Delete key doesn't work as a Delete key when editing text (although it works to delete files/folders) : instead of deleting the character after the cursor, it acts as if it was some sort of dead key that adds the "double grave accent" (??), for example "Delete then a then19:27
jm-space" makes this character "ȁ" (or https://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/%C8%81 ) .... I'm very confused... any idea of how I could resolve this? (note that ctrl+delete works as expected)19:27

cwsHey everybody, I'm having weird issues that have never persisted in the ath9k drivers before with a wireless card I've used for years now. On 20.04. I believe this may be a relevant launchpad thread about the issue from 2012, I bumped it today as the last post was from 2015. The last comment contains my errors.19:29
cwsIt seems to be a rabbit hole of wpa_supplicant issues, maybe a encryption setting in the ath9k configs, maybe something to do with the band channels of my 2.4Ghz / 5Ghz networks, despite both of them having pretty standard setups and this issue has never happened before.19:30
striveTripknotix: Do you know what autoclean does?19:31
cwsAlso have come across it potentially being a iommu issue, which comes from the part of the page faults that show up usually right before ath9k drops.19:31
cwsper "[  680.489520] ath9k 0000:21:00.0: AMD-Vi: Event logged [IO_PAGE_FAULT domain=0x0010 address=0xff0d5a44 flags=0x0000]"19:31
ubottuLaunchpad bug 495981 in network-manager (Ubuntu) "NM disconnects Wi-Fi every 2 minutes but iwconfig+dhclient and wicd don't -- ath9k" [High,Confirmed]19:31
cwsWhat weirdly confuses me is that the issue was infrequent at first, but now on boot turns into constant reconnecting and connection droppings despite the network being just fine.19:33
Master666elias a you are a genius :-) How if tor browser is running does that mean my IRC chat is also using tor?19:35
cwsNo, you'd need to route either your client through a tor proxy etc, or run browser IRC client.19:36
Master666cws how do I run my client through a tor proxy? I am using xchat19:38
cwsYou'd need to run the tor router itself, not the browser. It's pretty simple, google / search "Routing *client name* through tor router / proxy"19:39
cwsTons of configs.19:39
cwsI don't remember the exact setup off the top of my head.19:39

Tripknotixstrive it appears to remove packages in the cache for installing. however when i see that there are options for not touching apps that are installed, it made me wonder how safe it is, since i planned on not touching any other commands, im a windows guy normally19:50
pavlosjm-: sudo locale-gen "en_US.UTF-8"19:50
Tripknotixthis machine is not connected to the internet, and is used for image recongition software development, but is in a stable state,  however i am tasked with modifying the ui via qt designer , and i wanted to make a backup of the files before i attempted anything, turns out i can even plug in a usb drive to copy files19:50
Tripknotixsince the machine has no space19:50
jm-(pavlos: I don't think that matters but wikipedia tells me it's more like serbo-croatian, not french -- incidentally I'm french but my config is all more like US qwerty)19:51
Tripknotixso i am looking for the least destructive way to remove files from a system that a 3rd party built for us19:51
jm-pavlos: your command did "Generating locales (this might take a while)... en_US.UTF-8... done Generation complete."  but then no change I think19:52
jm-maybe I should try to reboot?19:52
pavlosjm-: yes, lets try that19:52
jm-pavlos: still the same behavior after reboot19:54
tingergI'm having an issue on a fresh install of 20.04. https://pastebin.com/hwa9UsdK19:55
jm-pavlos: there is one exception: in emacs, but only for the client of the daemon running, delete works as expected. But everywhere else, including new emacs sessions, delete does the Double-grave-accent modifier thing19:56
pavlosjm-: I dont use emacs so I cannot help, I thought that sequence was generated from a terminal19:57
jm-pavlos: that sequence is generated from a terminal, in fact all applications have the same behavior19:57
jm-except this one emacs sessions (maybe because it is started by the system)19:58
pavlosjm-: locale | nc termbin.com 999919:58
pavlosjm-: I dont know, everything looks same in my 20.0420:00
jm-pavlos: okay, thank you for your help :)    at least I learned this nc termbin.com trick :)20:01
striveTripknotix: Mind running dpkg --list | grep linux-image20:01
pavlosjm-: same as pastebinit if you install it ... eg. ls | pastebinit20:02
jm-pavlos: nice, thanks!20:02
tomreyntingerg: the package which fails to install there isn't an ubuntu package. which ubuntu release are you running there, and what's this ubuntucinnamon-lightdm-theme-base package?20:03

ubottuPackage ubuntucinnamon-lightdm-theme-base does not exist in focal20:05

ubottuRecognized Ubuntu flavors build on Ubuntu and provide a different user experience out of the box. They are supported both in #ubuntu and in their flavor channel. For a list, see https://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-flavours20:07
tingergyes i believe i am20:07
tingergsomeone just gave me a thumbdrive20:07
tingergmaybe it has channel on freenode?20:08
tomreynmaybe try #ubuntu-cinnamon or #ubuntu-cinnamon-remix20:09
tomreynhmm nope20:10
tomreyntingerg: the website says: "Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix is a new distribution that utilizes Linux Mint’s Cinnamon desktop environment." so it's actually linux mint based, i guess. anyways, not something we could support here. ##linux should work as a fallback.20:12

weretaviaHello all, I am looking for a TSV viewer that supports automatically reloading upon file changes. Other basic features would be sorting and search, but not strictly needed. Does anyone have a suggestion?20:50
offlineLubuntuI'm in sort of a catch 22 situation here, I need to put WINE on my computer but it can't connect to the internet to download it20:55
offlineLubuntuI'm accessing net using laptop running windows here, but am trying to figure out a way I can download WINE and then put it on a USB and then install WINE from the USB onto my desktop that's running Lubuntu right now20:56
offlineLubuntumost installation instructions for software seem to assume an active internet connection, does anyone know any tutorials for downloading the files and installing from from the USB instead?20:56
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: why do you need wine? Also, why not troubleshoot your wifi/network issue with your ubuntu-side before messing with wine?20:57
offlineLubuntuI think the issue is that the built-in wireless LAN device may be malfunctioning, it just can't seem to connect anymore20:57
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: then how are you online with Windows?20:58
offlineLubuntuI bought a plugin dongle but it only comes with software in a .exe for windows to run it20:58
offlineLubuntuthe wireles LAN on my laptop has a functioning wireless LAN in it , it's newer20:58
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: you don't think installing the exe with wine is going to solve your wifi problem do you? That's not how this works20:58
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: boot into ubuntu with the usb wifi adapter plugged in and run "lsusb" and screenshot it please.20:59
offlineLubuntuthat was one approach, I did find some tutorials for downloading the software for this dongle too, but it seems to assume you have a working internet connection on your OS20:59
offlineLubuntuok just gimme a sec, takes a few minutes to boot20:59
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: also, do you have access to ethernet at all?21:01
offlineLubuntuthis laptop and the desktop both have ethernet ports and I have an ethernet cable21:01
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: ok, and access to an ethernet port on a router/modem?21:01
offlineLubuntuthat said, I've never actually figured out how to work ethernet transfers, whether that's win>win or lin>lin or win>lin or lin>win21:01
offlineLubuntuoh, I do, but the desktop is pretty heavy21:02
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: you do have the option of setting up internet connection sharing in Windows. It's beyond the scope of this channel, but it should be pretty easy to get going21:03
bendmanhey, what is the best way to find a repo for an application? I'm looking for the source to the "Ubuntu Software" application.21:03
leftyfbbendman: why?21:03
offlineLubuntudo you think that's something like if I have my laptop turned on, it's ability to connect to the internet allows my desktop (with no functioning wireless LAN inside it) to piggyback of my laptop's card?21:04
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: yes21:04
bendmanleftyfb: I would like to see the root cause of a bug, and if it is something I can help with I would like to submit a fix.21:05
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-networking-winpc/internet-connection-sharing-in-windows-10/f6dcac4b-5203-4c98-8cf2-dcac86d98fb9?auth=121:05
offlineLubuntuthat's one thing I had thought about as maybe a temporary solution just to be able to download the dongle's software, at which point I wouldn't need the cable21:05
leftyfbbendman: the package name is ubuntu-software and is part of the "main" section of the official ubuntu repos21:06
offlineLubuntuwhere do I paste lsusb results?21:06
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: I would not download whatever software the dongle is suggesting even if you get it online. I would ask here about getting help with it first. You might be able to get it going without compiling unsupportable drivers21:07
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: try imgur.com21:07
offlineLubuntuwould pastebin be okay? that way it's copyable for you21:07
tomreyn/topic says " Pastes to https://paste.ubuntu.com/ "21:07
bendmanleftyfb: how can I find those repos? I'm looking on salsa, but I don't see a main or ubuntu-software repo.21:07
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: pastebin doesn't allow for images AFAIK21:08
offlineLubuntulsusb just returned text though21:08
leftyfbbendman: apt-get source ubuntu-software21:08
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: if you don't have online access you can't copy and paste it to pastebin21:09
offlineLubuntuoh wait, I'm not thinking this through... yeah I see what you mean21:09
offlineLubuntuneed to photograph it21:09
offlineLubuntuor wait, I could just copy text on my flash drive21:09
offlineLubuntuleftyfb the first line seems like the only relevant one "Bus 002 Device 003: ID 15a9:0004 Gemtek WUBR-177G [Ralink RT2571W]"21:11
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: what version of ubuntu?21:12
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: so far it looks like that wifi dongle should "just work" out of the box21:13
offlineLubuntulsb release -a says ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS which I think is what my version of Lubuntu is based on21:14
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: what have you tried to determine if the wifi is working or not?21:14
offlineLubuntuI know when I plugged it into windows, it didn't show up automatically, but when I ran setup.exe it showed up as 'wifi 2'21:15
offlineLubuntuand I had to give my router password and stuff a 2nd time to that conneciton21:15
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: Ubuntu != Windows21:15
offlineLubuntuthere might just be some casual switch I'm unaware of how to do, perhaps..21:16
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: https://i.stack.imgur.com/wN52W.png21:17
bendmanleftyfb: thanks, that helps21:17
offlineLubuntuone thing I remember is instructions said you should try to disable your built-in wifi card first21:17
offlineLubuntuI often see the compuer trying to connect with that and failing so not sure how ti disable it21:18
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: did you check the network manager in the top-right first?21:18
offlineLubuntuI'm not sure where to find that, Lubuntu's menu when I click is a bit different from Ubuntu's https://i.stack.imgur.com/BfRwj.png21:20
offlineLubuntudo you think it could be sometihng like 'Create New WiFi Network' ?21:21
offlineLubuntuI just want to use the dongle to connect to the existing network so I'm not sure21:21
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: ok, then use lubuntu's interface to connect to wifi21:22
offlineLubuntuthere is at the bottom of mine under 'Connection Information' an 'Edit Connections' button which when I click opens 'Network Connections'21:22
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: wait, didn't you say this is a desktop? I'm pretty sure there aren't many desktops out there with wifi built in. Have you tried looking for another usb dongle or a pci card in it?21:22
offlineLubuntuif it helps this is the exact model from 2007 https://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c01070924 which lists a 802.11 b/g wireless USB adapter card21:23
offlineLubuntuintenrally it looks like this https://support.hp.com/doc-images/479/c02073610.jpg but there's also an antennae that attaches to it to extend the range, but that doesn't seem to work anymore21:24
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: unplug the other cable going to it21:24
offlineLubuntuyou mean like open up the box and disconnect it? kinda scared tbh21:25
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: yes21:25
offlineLubuntuwas hoping there was just a way to shut it off software side21:25

leftyfbjeremy31: offlineLubuntu: https://askubuntu.com/a/116498221:38
jwhitmorepavlos, well there's some confusion and Ubuntu is messing up my USB as a result. The package manager thinks the package is installed but there is no library so file anywhere on the system21:38
jeremy31leftyfb: That has a different hardware ID unless the internal one is connected by USB also21:39
leftyfbjeremy31: I'm also wondering though if the one we're messing with is the internal one from HP21:39
jeremy31leftyfb: it is possible, offlineLubuntu any result from terminal for>  rfkill list21:40
pavlosjwhitmore: you can, "sudo apt install libusb-1.0-0"21:41
pavlosjwhitmore: that should bring amd64 and i386 libraries21:41
jwhitmorepavlos, yes but it's not the same as version 0.1-4. At present that's causing a problem mounting Android phone for USB File transfer. and more importantly pulseview package, where you get the error - pulseview: symbol lookup error: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsigrok.so.4: undefined symbol: libusb_get_version21:43
jwhitmorenm -D /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.so.0 | grep libusb_get_version    gives me nothing21:44
pavlosjwhitmore: sudo apt install libusb-0.1-4   does it say installed or continues to install21:44
jwhitmorelibusb-0.1-4 is already the newest version (2:0.1.12-32).21:45
jwhitmoreI think my only option is to re-install distro on laptop21:45
pavlosjwhitmore: and pulseview gives you that error21:45
jwhitmoreyes been trying to trace the problem. Assume pulseview needs the older version with that symbol21:47

offlineLubuntuwhat do I check after grep 2001? not sure what it changed21:52
offlineLubuntuI actually still have my wifi set up from when my inner wireless card was working so I think maybe I need to change just the 'device' but only one device is available in the dropdown menu21:53
jwhitmorepavlos, thanks a million looks like sigrok is looking at the wrong version of the library. Now I just have to figure how to get it to look at /usr/x86.. not /usr/local21:53
pavlosjwhitmore: maybe re-install usrlib-1.021:54

offlineLubuntuwhen I entered the new command it just went to a new empty line prompt, I don't know what that changed21:55
jeremy31offlineLubuntu: any items in lsusb results where the ID has 2001 in it?21:56

jwhitmorepavlos, reinstall didn't work but rename the /usr/local libusb to something stupid like dud-libusb-1.0.0.so.0 and then "ldd /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsigrok.so.4 | grep usb" gives me  "libusb-1.0.so.0 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libusb-1.0.so.0 (0x00007f4647a44000)"21:59

jwhitmorepavlos, thanks a million for all your help!22:01
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: power off the pc and unplug that gray cable with the white tip from that wifi module you showed in the picture. It's just an internal usb connection22:01
offlineLubuntuhm I got mixed up, can't seem to find the PDF for it, may just need to wing it22:05
offlineLubuntuin https://support.hp.com/doc-images/479/c02073610.jpg do you mean the top one or the bottom one?22:06
offlineLubuntupowering it down now22:06
jeremy31offlineLubuntu: bottom one22:07
offlineLubuntuoh wait, the white tip beyond the rainbow wires, take it out of the green, I think22:07
offlineLubuntugot it open, cramped in there, do you someitmes use tweezers to grip?22:11
offlineLubuntunot sure if I can just pull it out, obviously shouldn't pull the wires so I need to grab the white part22:11
offlineLubuntuhopefully it just comes out and don't need to squeeze the sides..22:11
pavlosjwhitmore: glad we sorted it out22:12
offlineLubuntuI took a short 2mb video showing where card is located using laptop camera https://imgur.com/a/OlchjvP22:20
offlineLubuntuactual placement seems really unlike the example image, it's like instead of coming away to right side at the top they took a 90 degree turn downward parallel with the card22:21
offlineLubuntuand then at the bottom it crosses over flush against the card to go out the back22:21
offlineLubuntumakes me wonder if heat could mess with that over time, to explain why antennae isn't getting good signal anymore22:22
offlineLubuntudo you know if it's okay to try and pull out the green chip from the gray plastic holder?22:23
offlineLubuntuhard to get my fingers in there at the bottom to grab the white, but might be easier if the entire thing came out first22:23
NorthwoodsHow can i copy files from one directory to another without overwriting existing files ?22:24
Northwoodsthose are actually images22:24
offlineLubuntuhm leftyfb it seems like another option would be if I unscrewed the metal mount from the back of the desktop22:25
offlineLubuntuthat way I could move it together rather than rmeove the card from the bracket22:25
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: can you follow the wire to where it's plugged into the motherboard and just unplug that side?22:25
offlineLubuntuI can see it but it's just really cramped to get finger in there22:25
offlineLubuntuit's unplugged so I'll see if I can grab the white with the tweezers22:25
offlineLubuntuoh you mean the other end of the white... hm22:25
leftyfbofflineLubuntu: oh, if it's unplugged, that's all you need to do. You don't need to remove the module.22:26
tomreynNorthwoods: cp -n source/some*pattern target/22:26
Northwoodsthanks tomreyn22:26
offlineLubuntuit's big an insulated and loops around a lot but  I think I can see where it ends22:26
offlineLubuntudefinitely can't get the proximal end connecting the motherboard, there's a big cchip rightover top22:28
offlineLubuntugonna ty for the distal end I guess22:29
offlineLubuntuokay I got the gren chip out of the plastic housing so I could flip it 180 to access the white22:31
offlineLubuntuit doesn't seem to want to come loose though, kind of unsure what direction to exert force22:31
offlineLubuntuit was like attached to the underside of it22:32
offlineLubuntustill is, basically, but now I can see that better with it decoupled from the mount22:32
pfloyddoes anyone know where I can get a fixed fping package? it does not work with ipv6 disabled, I get:  (null): can't create raw socket (must run as root?) : Address family not supported by protocol22:37
tomreynpfloyd: you could try to not disable ipv6. or you could run fping with -422:41
pfloydI have to disable ipv6 because comcast's router is trash and will refuse to do port forwarding if the device has ipv6 enabled22:42
BalooRJI don't think Comcast supports IPV6 yet22:42
pfloydand adding -4 doesn't work22:42
tomreynpfloyd: which ubuntu release are you running?22:42
tomreynhmm, bionic should provide fping package version 4.0-6, which shoould be based on fping 4.0 which, according to https://github.com/schweikert/fping/blob/develop/CHANGELOG.md#new-features-3 introduced -4 to force IPv422:44
pfloydyeah I'm on 4.0-6 but it's definitely not fixed22:44
pfloydii  fping                                      4.0-622:44
tomreynand using standard ping is not an option?22:46
tomreynhttps://launchpad.net/~just-vpn/+archive/ubuntu/fping?field.series_filter=bionic has a backport, certainly unmaintained, but.. you could try it22:47
pfloydtomreyn: well, it's for smokeping. I was debugging why smokeping was failing and that's when I found fping was the culprit. Will check out the back port, thanks!22:49
