hackinghornhi, I can both download discord from the discord website and from software center, which way is better?03:07
lavendereyesthe official .deb package and the snap package are on the same version looks like03:11
lavendereyeshowever the snap package seems to have some problems https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/auto-connections-for-discord/2392/2003:12
lavendereyesso try the version from the website03:13
hackinghornohh thankss lavendereyes03:21
gambl0rehow can i check how a particular application was installed. whether i installed via software centre, snap or some other 3rd party repo?03:49
derpadmingambl0re, : dpkg -l04:21
derpadminnot sure for snap04:21
guiverc`snap list` will list installed snaps04:21
guivercthere is also /var/log/apt/history.log which will have dates etc to see when installed; it doesn't say how (gui, package tool or command really)04:22
herryI want to stress test my vm. Is there any dummy RAM intensive application I can run from the command line?05:22

omega_doomDoes anyone know how to connect to vpn via /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/vpn with 2FA? I get an error "The requested authentication type is not supported in AnyConnect CLI."05:32
hackinghornis snap replacing apt?06:00
hackinghorni still use apt to install most things06:00
hackinghornohh nice06:01
matsamanno it isn't06:02
matsamanbecause snap is an Ubuntu thing and apt is a Debian thing06:02
hackinghornhmm I see06:02
matsamanand Ubuntu wouldn't survive without Debian, as far as anyone knows06:02
matsamanwon't stop them from pushing snap as hard as they want for as long as it lasts06:03
matsamanbut they don't have the developers to not provide apt & .debs06:03
hackinghornoohh interestingg06:15
matsamanit probably looks nice to upstreams06:16
matsamanbut you should keep in mind that a snap package can be a totally arbitrary filesystem06:17
hackinghornI read that a snap package doesnt depends on any other package and always can run on its own. Is it true?06:17
hackinghorna .deb usually has some dependencies06:18
hackinghornoh and they run on all distros06:18
hackinghornsounds great06:19
TJ-snaps depend on the snap core and API support06:20
TJ-also require kernel support for namespaces cgroups et al06:21
matsamanhackinghorn: a snap package is a big filesystem in a file06:22
matsamanhackinghorn: instead of having deps it clutters your storage with redundant black box nonsense06:22
matsamanyou could put essentially an entire OS into a snap if you wanted06:22
matsamanthe comparison is, therefore, not worth making06:22
hackinghorna whole filesystem06:22
matsamanthere are also no Ubuntu developers reviewing upstream snap files for security issues or the like06:23
matsamanyou're taking a random upstream filesystem and running it06:23
matsamanand hoping nothing goes wrong06:23
hackinghornohh yeahh06:24
matsamaneverybody wants virtualization to be a solution to something, but it's frequently only a hopeful attempt to trade (more) resources for (less) human effort, but importantly ignoring the time it takes to constantly maintain & replace huge virtual systems, and how fsckin' buggy they tend to be06:25
matsamannevermind the potential security issues06:25
matsamanbut whatever06:25
matsamanmost Ubuntu-specific software ends up dying06:26
matsamanthey just don't have a lot of developers, it's a small company06:26
felixiwhat are snaps and what is their use? Sorry for stupid question.06:27
matsamanfelixi: you know how normally a GNU/Linux distro has a package manager that offers lots of prebuilt & vetted packages that put files into particular places on your filesystem to work?06:29
matsamanfelixi: snap packages, instead, or random filesystems the upstreams make themselves, that you download and hope are of good quality, and run06:29
matsamanthey're entire separate filesystems in a file06:29
matsamans/or random/are random*06:30
matsamanso it's basically like .exe's on Windows06:30
felixiso deps contained in hopes for cross-distro compatibility?06:30
matsamanyou download a pile of trash and it does whatever it wants in its area06:30
matsamanI believe cross-distro compatibility _is_ something they try to advertise, yes06:30
matsamanit's software virtualization, basically06:31
matsamanyou're running a filesystem-as-an-app06:31
matsamanand that filesystem is typically provided by upstream, and not built by a human person associated with your distro06:31
hackinghorneh you make snap sound like a bad thing06:32
matsamanso instead of someone who maintains packages for Debian or Ubuntu taking the source code to Firefox and tweaking it to be in compliance with Debian or Ubuntu guidelines and quality control06:33
matsamanand building it professionally for your installation06:33
matsamanand looking out for huge new bugs or security issues06:33
matsamanFirefox upstream, Mozilla, makes a snap filesystem06:33
matsamanand you download and run it06:33
matsamanhackinghorn: to me it is a bad thing06:33
matsamanbut also, separately, I doubt it will last long06:33
hackinghornbut developers want to make things that run on Ubuntu that doesnt bother Ubuntu maintainers06:34
matsamansure, upstream developers do06:34
matsamanbut end users do not want upstream's builds06:34
matsamannot smart users, anyway06:34
matsamanDebian package maitainers do not just grab binaries from upstreams and rename them .deb and distribute them06:35
matsamanat all06:35
hackinghornwhat can upstream developers do without snap?06:35
matsamanthat would be a freaking nightmare06:35
matsamanno distro does that06:35
hackinghornohh interesting06:35
hackinghornah I see06:35
matsamanwell they can build their own .deb's06:35
matsamanwhich Debian also still wouldn't use06:35
matsamanor they could use flatpak06:36
matsamanor a .run self-installer06:36
matsamanor a tarball of a binary system06:36
matsamanor any number of other things no sane person would touch06:36
matsamanupstreams are not to be trusted06:36
hackinghornhmm I see06:36
matsamantheir purpose is rarely to have a stable or secure operating system06:36
matsamantheir purpose is only to serve their singular app06:36
matsamanthat's why installing apps on a GNU/Linux distro tends to be a painless dream compared to macOS or Windows06:37
matsamaninstead of grabbing random installers from random upstreams and hoping they won't hose your system06:37
matsamanyou install lovely, purpose-built binaries of open source software06:37
matsamanlovingly tweaked and patched and audited06:37
felixiidk if it sounds bad. It can be a handy way for companies to support linux for their piece of software without having to package it a bunch of times?06:38
felixii mean, ubuntu can't package all the software in the world06:38
matsamandistros -- most distros -- don't use upstream packages06:38
matsamanso it doesn't matter if upstream packages for you06:38
matsamanbecause they make trash builds that nobody uses06:38
matsamanUbuntu can't, but Debian already did for them06:38
matsaman89,000 packages for Debian06:39
felixibut then again, theres things like several versions of a piece of software and pseudo-packages that depend on a bunch of others and a piece of software split into several packages.06:40
matsamanfor more complicated and/or more integral things06:40
matsamanlike python, automake06:41
felixii just hate software being split into several packages. Oh i installed python3 and i dont have pip, or i don't have tkinter. Why? :D06:41
matsamandunno, that's a different issue06:41
hackinghornhmm interesting06:42
matsamanone could argue a lot of people don't use tkinter06:43
matsamanit'd be a strange argument for Ubuntu, though, because so many optional things (such as tkinter support) are already enabled06:43
matsamansince we're dealing with precompiled binaries and it's hard to support everyone's choices without enabling a lot of things06:43
hackinghornit looks like Windows is becoming more like Ubuntu and Ubuntu is becoming more like Windows06:50
ikoniawhat does that even mean ?06:50
hackinghornWindows has a software center like Ubuntu now06:51
hackinghornand Ubuntu has snap06:52
ikoniathey are totally differejt concepts06:52
hackinghorneh really, maybe I'm wrong lol06:52
ikoniaubuntu has always had a software centre, windows has had one since windows 1006:52
matsamanhackinghorn: yeah it does06:55
matsamanon the surface, anyway06:55
felixiis there a source based package manager which could install into home directory? :D I ran into a problem with a piece of software and i ended up building it from source to my home dir.07:00
zetherooInstalled 20.04 on my Thinkpad T440p laptop (previously 18.04). As with 18.04 I boot up the laptop with it docked and with the lid closed, however with 20.04 something new happens right after user login ... the laptop goes into suspend and has to be woken up by pressing the power button on the dock. This behavior is new and did not happen with 18.04.07:18
Majorahi all, just connected my laptop up to a new monitor, the display settings in ubuntu are stuck on mirror screen.. i cant untick the option and its just well, mirroring the screen, do I need to get the monitor drivers or something?07:19
mgedminzetheroo: possibly it doesn't detect the external monitor fast enough?  then it thinks you have the lid closed with no monitors attached and goes to sleep07:19
mgedminzetheroo: you may want to tweak /etc/systemd/logind.conf to have HandleLidSwitch=ignore and/or HandleLidSwitchExternalPower=ignore07:20
mgedmin(systemctl restart systemd-logind.service after editing the file)07:21
zetheroomgedmin: What do those changes do? I don't want to disable Suspend on lid closure altogether.07:22
mgedminhttps://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/focal/en/man5/logind.conf.5.html documents everything07:23
mgedminbut if you don't want to disable sleep on lid closure, don't set HandleLidSwitch=ignore07:23
mgedminthis is a bit complicated: both logind and gnome have configurable knobs for handling lid events07:24
=== remy^ is now known as Remy
mgedmin(or at least used to?  I don't remember if gnome still has it)07:25
mgedminthe default should be "do not go to sleep if lid is closed but you have an external monitor attached"07:25
mgedminin these smart HDMI cable times the laptop can sense when the monitor is turned off or switched to a different input source07:25
mgedminI've a laptop connected to my TV, and when I switch the TV source to a different input, my laptop used to go to sleep until I tweaked logind.conf07:26
mgedminso as I said before, I _think_ what happens is your system boots and notices the lid is closed before it can detect the external monitor07:26
zetherooit's frustrating that things break that used to work :/07:26
mgedminoh yes07:26
zetheroowell it's not right after boot - it's after the login07:27
zetheroothe login screen shows up on the external monitors fine07:27
mgedminoh?  interesting, let me check07:27
mgedminok, if you run `gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power` in a terminal07:28
mgedminI see 'org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-suspend-with-external-monitor false'07:28
mgedminwhich means it shouldn't be going to sleep when the external monitor is connected07:28
mgedminis that setting false for you too?07:29
mgedminI see that it is07:29
mgedminfile a bug?07:29
mgedminlet me quickly try if this works for me07:30

mgedminit'll collect some information and open a browser window07:30
zetherooah lovely :)07:31
mgedminso, I closed the lid and my laptop didn't go to sleep07:31
mgedmin(this laptop doesn't have any logind.conf tweaks)07:31
mgedminbut I haven't actually tried to log in with the lid closed07:31
mgedmin(I'd hate to close all my windows)07:31
mgedminlocking/unlocking works fine with lid closed07:32
Majorahi all speaking of monitors, I connected a 32 inch 4k monitor to my laptop.. im not sure if its detecting properly, Its stuck in Mirror screen and the display options only show 1 monitor being displayed when i clearly have two (including my laptop screen).. is this related to my video card? Geforce gTX 1050 mobile? I am using the Nvidia driver metapackage from nvidia atm..07:33
mgedminnvidia is special, so that's likely, but I'm not sure I can help with any specifics07:35
mgedmin(I avoid nvidia because it always has compatibility issues with Linux)07:35
mgedminif you're using the proprietary driver, try nvidia's own configuration tools07:35
Majoratrying to figure out where the problem is... in monitor preferences I click Detect monitors.. nothing shows besides one screen that says 'Mirror Screens'07:35
Majoraoh man... i just figured it out07:36
MajoraI had 'Same image in all monitors' ticked07:36

WalterEgossonhi! I have ubuntu installed on two disks in RAID-1 mode. We had to replace one of the two disk today but the EFI partition was on it, my dumbass forgot to backup the EFI partition. Now we get a "UEFI shell" when booting our server (not even grub). Is there a way to rebuild it?10:59
mgedminboot from a USB drive, make sure there's an EFI partition on the hard disk(s), install grub into it11:01
WalterEgosson@mgedmin: what would be that way?11:01
mgedminif you need specifics, you'll have to tell us more about your partition table layout and such11:03
mgedminone tip: if your USB drive has grub on it, you can get the grub shell and tell it to boot your main system11:04
mgedminand then do the repairs there, without having to muck with live sessions and chroots11:05
mgedminlike with (grub) configfile (hd3,msdos1)/grub/grub.cfg11:06

en1gmaim running ubuntu 20.04 amd64 desktop and am having a heck of a time getting the wifi hotspot working (CORRECTLY). i have it running fine but i get no Wireless N Mode. i been researching and the best info i found is that i need to edit "/etc/hostapd.conf" and add "hw_mode=g, ieee80211n=1 and ht_capab=[SHORT-GI-40][HT40+][HT40-][DSSS_CCK-40]" but i dont have "/etc/hostapd.conf"12:30

en1gmais there something more recent for 20.04 and maybe enable wme_enabled=1?12:31

HugLifeTiZHi there. I have been trying my absolute damndest to get a Xubuntu 20.04.1 install working on my laptop. It failed to install the bootloader during the graphical installer, and I was able to take it from there to a much better state to where GRUB is installed and it can *attempt* to boot, but it stalls waiting for every single drive in /etc/fstab and then eventually just fails to mount all of them.13:11
HugLifeTiZI feel like the bootloader installation may have failed because my main partition is a dual-device striped BTRFS filesystem. But I am typing this from hexchat inside a working Xubuntu 18.04.13:14
summonnerHugLifeTiZ, I had lots of problems too with 20.04, and just downgraded to 18.04 where everything was working fine. I'll wait until the next release before trying again.13:23
oerhekssummonner, simmulaar problem with BTRFS ?13:23
summonnernot specifically with BTRFS, mine had to do with devices, graphics were glitching, wifi was dropping continuously and other weird behavior13:25
summonnerHugLifeTiZ, which kernel are you running on 18?13:25
oerheksthat does not meet his issue.13:25
peter22222anybody knows how to set default search engine on firefox via command line?13:27
ikoniaI didn't think you could set firefox params like search enginer with the command line13:28
summonnerpeter, I think it's    sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser13:28
ikoniathought you had to ship the config file/db13:28
ikoniasummonner: that doesnt' change teh search enginer in a browser13:28
summonnerah, I misread that. I'll stick to one thing at a time then :)13:29
oerhekspeter22222, if you find the answer, let us know13:30

rud0lfi'm moving ubuntu to a new disk with rsync, will update-grub under new disk chroot suffice or do i need to run grub-install too? (the system is UEFI)13:32
rud0lfi think all grub-install does is installing MBR code, but i'm not 100% sure13:33
ikoniadepends on where your bootloader is13:33
rud0lfon windows disk13:33
HugLifeTiZsummonner: I tried both stock 5.4 and liquorix 5.813:33
HugLifeTiZFunny thing is, the exact same kernels are present in both 18.04 and 20.0413:33
summonnerpeter22222, the option is present in the search.json file - but the search engines themselves are "hashed" as the reference to the search and options. for instance, mine is -  "currentJ__hash":"GPq3LPtYCKxOFFkcmKJd45f0SEWxDunuZvg9Kt9=  It seems this behavior was changed in version 34 onwards, in an attempt to restrict it through the default choice (google)13:40
summonnerHugLifeTiZ, have a read through this first - https://logan.tw/posts/2015/05/17/grub-install-and-btrfs-root-file-system/13:47
summonnerHugLifeTiZ, seems a little excessive to follow these steps, but I found other web pages commenting on difficulties with grub2 and btrfs if it's the boot partition13:48
HugLifeTiZsummonner, I did basically all of that, and that got me a working GRUB 2.04 for Xubuntu 20.0413:48
HugLifeTiZBut regardless of if I boot the kernel through GRUB, or do so directly with rEFInd, it just stalls out and fails to mount any of my partitions13:49
HugLifeTiZI'm starting to feel like Arch Linux will be less trouble, lol.13:49
HugLifeTiZOr at the very least, if I go through that process, I might discover something to help me get a 20.04 working. I always wanted to have Arch again but I also wanted to have a stable base next to it that I could boot into instead.13:50
summonnerHugLifeTiZ, one trick I did not so long ago was to specify the partitions in the fstab instead of using the UUID, and that worked... old skool style13:50
HugLifeTiZsummonner, Old school as in /dev/sda1, etc? Right now, I have my fstab entries by PARTLABEL=whatever.13:51
summonneryup, actually specifying the partitions in the grub file and fstab, that worked for me. obviously make a copy and comment-out the line in case it doesn't work so you can revert13:52
HugLifeTiZI have a multitude of fstab backups, haha13:52
HugLifeTiZmy btrfs partition has subvolumes, @xubuntu-1804, @xubuntu-2004, @home, and I've got a few snapshots of each right now13:52

boolmanhi guys! how do I disable sshd during ubuntu 20.04 autoinstall?16:05
oerheksssh service in an auto-install?16:09
oerhekstell us more?16:09
boolmanwell, im building a template with packer using autoinstall. and i dont want it to listen to sshd until it reboots into the target16:10
boolmanhttps://ubuntu.com/server/docs/install/general search for "Connecting to the installer over SSH"16:11
oerheksi think ssh is not running standard during install, and packer is somthing i don't understand.16:12
nbusroneI simple question , should I upgrade 18.04 to 20.04.1 ? currently on 5.4.0-42-generic.I know some will suggest to clean install but the current condition is 18.04 just install 2 months ago.16:14

strivekinghat: Are you trying to mount a remote drive to your local system? If so, you could look into 'automount'.16:56
oerheksnbusrone, upgrade path is out, so i do not expect such issues16:57
strivekinghat: Also referred to as 'autofs'.16:57
nbusroneoerheks : what do you mean by ' upgrade path is out'16:57
kinghatis that used because you cant mount via hostname in fstab?16:58
oerheksnbusrone, why else would you ask that?16:59
strivekinghat: There's also cifs16:59
striveAdd remote entry into your local /etc/hosts, then you'll be able to mount via hostname.17:00
oerheks20.04.1 point release means stable enough to upgrade/use in production.17:00
kinghatwhat if i have it set at the router?17:01
nbusroneoerheks : I was thinking of bug issue happen on old 16.04 LTS when get upgrade with conflict.Ok , will upgrade it but do I need to update 18.04 to latest kernel or I can direct upgrade to 20.04.1 ?17:01
oerheksjust hit the upgrade button, and the message should appear.. else reboot after that and try again :-P17:03
strivekinghat: You have DNS set at the router level?17:03

ubottuFor release notes of a given Ubuntu release, please refer to the 'Docs' column on the 'List of releases' table at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases17:03
strivekinghat: I wonder how your local system will interpret ip to hostname...17:04
kinghatstrive: I have my router assigning a static LAN ip to those servers hostname. or maybe it uses it's mac address to pair the hostname and ip. either way.17:05
chilverscis libprotobuf.so.17 compatible with libprotobuf.so.10? can I create a symlink or something to solve my issue with the missing library?17:06
nbusroneoerheks : thanks :)17:06
strivekinghat: I think your local system needs to know what the hostname is to your remote system's IP. Unless there's another technical way to use the router's information.17:08
kinghatI ssh via hostname to that machine so I'm just wondering if I can use the hostname in fstab vs the LAN ip in case I change it so I don't have to update fstab is what I'm getting at.17:08
striveJust change it in /etc/hosts once.17:09
strivee.g:    server17:09
striveIn /etc/fstab you could use the hostname.17:10
striveIf the IP of the remote system changes, you'll need to update only the /etc/hosts file with the correct IP.17:10
striveAs long as you keep the hostname in /etc/fstab, then it should be all good :)17:11
kinghatso hostname in fstab will only work if you have it specified in /etc/hosts?17:12
=== ledeni__ is now known as ledeni
striveI believe so.17:12
kinghatgot ya. I'll just leave it as is then.17:13
striveKeep it simple, I say :)17:13
striveThere's also the /etc/nsswitch.conf file that you could edit to use dns in favor instead of the hosts file.17:14
striveI'm unsure if that'll grab the ip to hostname config from your router.17:15
strivekinghat: If you're up for tinkering, you could give that a try and let us know how it went.17:16
striveOtherwise, I'd just stick to the /etc/hosts file.17:17
kinghatill just stick to fstab if i have to update it manually anyways 🤷‍♂️17:23
striveYeah :)17:23

HugLifeTiZHi there. I've repaired a Xubuntu 20.04 installation that crashed when trying to install the bootloader. I can get into it now and run it, but I notice in my xfce4 settings an icon to permanently install the system, and in addition, it does a file system check every single boot. So what was left to do after installing the bootloader that I still18:34

buzelUnfortunately, compatibility issues like those are the nature of DRM, and there isn't much Ubuntu can do about it. If they have a web reader using EME, that might be a better option than running the Windows app via Wine. I can't comment whether the DRM they use will allow itself to be run inside a VM19:31

johnjaydid the original ubuntu 20.04 fail with "Ubi-partman failed with exit code 10"?20:29
johnjayi googled it and it's saying i need to create an EFI partition to get around this error20:29
oerheksjohnjay, indeed, you booted in UEFI mode, that is oke20:30
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/UEFI20:30
Bashing-omjohnjay: EFI endowed machine - GPT partitioning (preferred) ?20:30
oerheksit should be the first 512 mb partition on the beginning of the disk.20:31
johnjayisn't that the partition step though?20:31
johnjaymaybe if i select try ubuntu first then install20:31
oerheksboot in live mode, and maybe yes, GPT is a good start20:32
Bashing-omjohnjay: The mode that you boot the installer is how the install will go.20:32
johnjaywell i have no idea. i'm trying to install ubuntu 20 in qemu20:35
oerheksoriginal ..20:37
Bashing-omjohnjay: Never experienced qemu - I can not relate here.20:38
johnjaywell i made an EFI partition. so it just tries to boot from it and fail. If I enable the menu I can tell it to boot from the cd which seems to work20:45
johnjaywell it just took me to the Live Ubuntu not the installer. :/20:46
johnjayoh wait nvm20:46
johnjayit didn't give me the error. but idk how ti decides bios or efi mode20:49
summonnerjohnjay, your bios boot settings do that, you mark which disk boots into UEFI or legacy boot. Also, if you have UEFI enabled, check your settings about secure boot too21:34
marcurlingHello, does CopyQ works on focal/Ubuntu 20.x ?21:36
jeremy31johnjay: the installer installs in whatever it is booted in to, if it boots in UEFI mode, it installs that way21:37

johnjayi thought it weird ubuntu installer immediately crash because no efi parttiion exist21:40
