KE0VVTIs there a way to put EVERYTHING in “~/.local/bin/” in my “$PATH”? Some of my programs are in subdirectories.01:13
phionahow do we free up space on lubuntu?01:13
hydrianphiona: Depends on how your machine has the drives partitioned.01:15
tomreynKE0VVT: you'd need to list the subdirectories seperately.01:15
tomreynwell, you could examine them dynamically, but that's a bad approach security-wise01:15
hydrianphiona: from the CLI. My way favorite method is using `du --max-depth=1 -x |sort -n` then see which directories seem too big for what they are.01:16
KE0VVTtomreyn: If I put it in that directory, I want it to be runnable.01:16
KE0VVTtomreyn: I guess I could keep the directory where it is and symlink its contents to ~/.local/bin/.01:17
hydrianAnyone have issues the an Alcor USB 2.0 hub just crashing when to try to interact with it in any way?01:17
phionahydrian:  someone here once told me to01:25
phiona"df -h"01:25
phiona"df -i"01:25
phionaand then01:25
phiona"sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean".01:25
phionaand then01:25
tomreynKE0VVT: dirty, ugly, hack, which does not take into account special cases such as blank spaces in directory names:    echo export PATH="$(find ~/.local/bin -type d -print | xargs echo | tr ' ' ':'):$PATH"01:29
tomreynKE0VVT: remove the 'echo' and add it to your ~/.profile if you wnat to use it like this (you should not).01:30
tomreynthe first "echo", that is01:30
tomreynphiona: you typed too fast there, if you were typing01:31
phionatomreyn: actually i typed it first, then pasted.01:33
tomreynuse an irc client which inserts a delay after every pasted line then, or use a pastebin01:33
tomreynand join lines where you can, don't use enter as punctuation.01:34
tomreynthis helps working around the bots quieting you.01:35
phionatomreyn: so what do we do in order to free up space?01:35
tomreynphiona: first you find out what's consuming the space, and whether it should be.01:39
tomreynphiona: maybe i can give a better answer when you can describe the details of the problem you're facing, if any.01:40
phionatomreyn: how do we find out what consuming space?01:42
tomreynphiona: you can use the du (disk usage) command on a terminal, or the ncdu text-graphics interface, or baobab on gtk-based desktop environments.01:43

phionatomreyn: yes, i know02:14
tomreynphiona: 19 GB are allocated on the root file system, it *may* be possible to regain some space there, using oeheks command, or by browsing through those subdirectories other than /home02:14

phionatomreyn: what oerheks command?02:16

oerheksso, did you try it already?02:18
phionaoerheks: yes but it was a long time ago. i does not work nnow. i think its because of this..."sudo rm -rf /usr/src/linux-headers-3.13.0-4*"02:23
oerheksi hope you don't have such old kernel.02:23
oerheksi think you won't be able to delete much more than an unused kernel from sda6, all you can do is clean out sda7 /home/02:24
phionaoerheks: nope. im always updated.02:25

tomreynphiona: you can clean the apt cache (apt clean), but this usually just works temporarily.02:46
tomreynphiona: you can remove old kernel images located in /boot, by uninstalling their linux* packages ( dpkg -l linux* | grep -E '^[ri]' )02:47
tomreynphiona: and you can purge some apt packages you no longer need.02:48
tomreynphiona: the latter you can do using the "synaptic" graphical application, for example, or just by looking through your desktop environments' application menu, and then running   apt purge SOMEPACKAGENAME   to delete a given software02:49

tomreynoh, you seem to be on an i386 system, is your CPU actually 64-bit capable?02:51
phionatomreyn: yes . im on 32 bit install.02:52
tomreynphiona: just upgrading to ubuntu 20.04 wont be possible then. if the cpu supports 64-bit ( grep -o -w -c 'lm' /proc/cpuinfo    shouold return something > 0) you can do a fresh 20.04 installation, keeping your existing /home partition + file system02:54
phionatomreyn: it returned a 2.02:57
tomreynphiona: your CPU is 64-bit capable. ideally, you'll also have a mimimum of 4 GB RAM.   free -h    should report >=4 GB where the "total" column crosses the "Mem" row.02:59

Maikphiona: it'll leave you with a vulnerable OS, just like unsupported Windows version like XP or W7 that people still seem to hold on to03:42
Maikif you really need 32bit you'll have to switch to Debian. But in the future 32bit will disappear anyway, it's being phased out.03:44
masonHrm. Specifically, 32-bit support will continue on for ages but only as a secondary architecture for 64-bit hosts.03:45
phionaMaik: why debian? what about lubuntu?03:46
Maikalso 64 bit only03:46
masonphiona: Derivatives tend not to have the engineering headcount to do real forks, which is what it'd require - rebuilding media, packages, etc.03:46

Maikalso it's official flavors03:47

tomreynso it's a laptop, i see. if the SS port would not connect to the usb 3.x bus that'd be a grave HW design problem, it's probably something else. then.18:09
tomreynNebuntu: you could search the web for this laptop model (  journalctl -b | grep DMI:  ) and "usb 3" OR "usb ss" just to rule out a HW design failure.18:13
tomreynNebuntu: i just read up on this. apparently there's some mechanism which will dynamically assign non SS capable devices to lower speed hubs. that's according to this post where the OP reports to have connected different devices to the same external usb port, but where it got assigned to different usb hub: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/491526/usb-3-0-external-hard-disk-only-operating-at-480-mbit-s18:22
en1gmahow do i stop ubuntu 18.04.1 amd64 desktop from upgrading automatically to 18.04.2?18:23
tomreynen1gma: you don't install recommended updates18:24
en1gmaok thanks18:24
oerheksen1gma, why would you want this? old kernel, vulnerabilities..18:24
oerhekspull the ethernet cord :-D18:24
en1gmayea i know. i have to run some old version of ubuntu 18.04 because this program dont work in 20.0418:24
en1gmahttps://github.com/gasparka/spectrogram  see the ubuntu 20.04 note18:25
oerheks.. and what makes you think it will not run on 18.04.5 ?18:25
oerheksyes, your install is that old.18:25
en1gmai tried 18.04.5 but i cant remember exactly what happened18:26
en1gmai got 2 installs. one is 20.04 that im on now and another laptop with some version of ubuntu i just keept testing versions with but i think i need to disable automatic recommended updates18:26
en1gmato do some real testing18:26
tomreynnote that we can't support installations where updates are disabled on purpose, since this means unfixed bugs.18:27

Nebuntu@tomreyn Thank you for the article. I tried here two usb3.x cables and three usb-sticks (of which I don't know if any of them is usb3.x). However it always shows me 480M. I'm going now to restart in windows (I have dual boot) and check what the reaction is there. Else maybe I'll try firmware update for laptop.18:33
Nebuntu@tomreyn Hi again, I just wanted to say again thank you for the help. On windows it also load on USB2.0 . Looking around I found out that even though the two cables come from two very recent phones with quick charging capability, they are very likely usb2.0 (=usbc is not automatically usb3.x). The sign on the cables are just usb and not ss-usb.19:02
NebuntuTomorrow I'm gonna go to shop and buy one - I guess thats the issue. Sorry, for asking in the wrong channel for Ubuntu as it turned out to be elsewhere related.19:02
grinchierhello all,   i was wondering did mokutil always come up as an option when updating the kernel?  I never noticed this before.19:04
grinchieralso i'm wondering if I did it right.  I selected enroll mok from the mokmanager at reboot.   but then i panicked and hit escape and typed in the password.   lol19:05
jeremy31grinchier: mokutil has only been used for 4 years19:06
grinchierso you mean everytime the kernel updates in ubuntu you get the notification?  I never realized lol19:06
jeremy31It might be something with dkms and unsigned modules19:06
grinchierits just funny cause I was in here this week to try and figure out how to get my wifi driver to work with ubuntu.  since secure boot always re-enables itself after a few weeks on this HP laptop.   I just ordered a usb card,   but then I did an update and the mokutil option popped up.   and now the onboard wifi works with secure boot enabled! lol19:07
grinchierbut i'm concerned i actually disabled it or did something wrong.   because I didn't select any keys or create any keys.19:08
grinchieri selected enroll mok.   but then i got confused and panicked at the next menu so I hit escape.   then it asked me to put in the password which I did.   then it rebooted and now my onboard wifi works19:08
jeremy31I just disable Secure Boot on every computer-- why I never see mok messages19:09
grinchierI do use a 3rd party dkms driver for the wifi card.   I Just want to make sure secure boot is still working properly.19:09
grinchierit can't be disabled on mine  after a few weeks it re-enables itself in the bios19:09
jeremy31What wifi?19:10
grinchierumm let me check19:10
jeremy31using the rtl8821ce-dkms package then19:11
grinchieri used instructions i found online to wget from the thomas spinho repo i think it is19:11
grinchierlet me check19:11
oerheksjeremy31 +119:11
grinchierthis is what I did  sudo apt-get install --reinstall git dkms build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)git clone https://github.com/tomaspinho/rtl8821cecd rtl8821cechmod +x dkms-install.shchmod +x dkms-remove.shsudo ./dkms-install.sh19:14
grinchierbut everytime secure boot would re-enable in the bios it would stop working19:14
grinchierso this time I used the usb card I bought.  updated.   and then i got the option to use the mokutil on reboot19:15
grinchierand now it works with secure boot enabled.  i just want to make sure I used the mok manager correctly19:15
grinchierso all i had to select was enroll mok and nothing else?  select no keys or nothing?19:15
jeremy31grinchier: that github is actually the source for the rtl8821ce-dkms package.  You should be good if it works with Secure Boot enabled19:17
grinchierok great.  so let me ask another question.  this is my sisters laptop for my little niece to use for remote schooling.   are they going to have to do the mokutil thing everytime they update the kernel?  They are not too pc saavy19:18
zprxHi guys! After upgrading my system to ubuntu 20.04.lts I got coil whine / static noice when I play CS:GO. Never had this issue before. When my CS:GO windows is inactive the noice stops (checking discord or someting while CS still runs).19:18
jeremy31grinchier: It might be best to turn Secure Boot off19:18
grinchierwell like i said.  it can't be disabled.19:19
grinchierthis hp laptop is weird19:19
grinchierthe presumption is poor quality cmos battery19:19
jeremy31Must be a different model than my HP, Secure Boot has been off since I bought it19:20
grinchierso is that a yes they will have to do the mok manager everytime they update kernel?   if thats the case I might as well just give them the usb wifi card I bought for them.19:20
grinchierthen they can just stick that in if the wifi onboard stops working after they update lol19:20
grinchierya i'm sure it is a different model lol19:20
jeremy31grinchier: PLay it safe and let them have the USB19:20
grinchierya i will do that19:21
grinchierit was only 15 bucks lol19:21
jeremy31Just in case it is needed19:21
grinchierlast question.  how to set ubuntu to automatically update or notify when there is updates available?19:22
oerheksunattended updates are automaticly set.19:22
oerheksyou would notice when you boot, no?19:23
grinchierok i found the options in the software and updates window.   great.19:23
grinchiersecurity updates are installed automatically.  other updates are displayed weekly19:23
grinchiersounds good19:23
grinchierthey should be all set.19:23
grinchierhmm this is interesting though in the additional drivers tab.  it is saying the realtek wifi card is not working and is selected to do not use.   but it is working hmm19:26
grinchieri'm going to select the use dkms source option and see what happens19:27
grinchieruh oh its stuck on applying changes lol19:28
grinchiermaybe that was a bad idea ugh19:28
oerheksnot stuck i guess, just wait for the module to be build19:29
grinchierpatience is a virtue I guess lol19:29
oerhekswe know :-)19:29
grinchieri got a 13 year old laptop i use with lxde i should be use to long waits lol19:30
grinchierwell pk-debconf-help is using almost 100% cpu so I guess something is doing something19:33
grinchierits done19:34
grinchiergonna reboot and see if it still works with secure boot19:34
grinchierwelp it works.  guess we'll see what happens in a few weeks when they update the kernel hehe19:46
FrankyGovI tried a few video editing apps like: KdenLive, FlowBlade, OpenShot19:46
FrankyGovI found that most of them take a lot of time to save the changes made19:47
FrankyGovI was looking for a simple application to cut/trim some videos. On Windows there are simple apps like WonderShare or Filmora19:48
FrankyGovDoes anybody know any similar app for Ubuntu?19:48
TJ-FrankyGov: taking time to save suggests they are converting the format rather than doing a copy19:49
netametaHow do i add python3 to path, so when i run python it will use python3 and not python2 ?19:53
oerheksnetameta, search for the python is python3 package19:55
rfmnetameta, you can install the python-is-python3 package, but I found it easier just to put an alias in my .bashrc19:55
TJ-netameta: or use update-alternatives20:00
netametapython-is-python3 worked, thanks20:00

adam0000345is there a way for it to constantly show22:20
