adam0000345Bashing-om in that case I have a question haha!00:31
adam0000345I finally booted into Ubuntu 20.4!00:31
adam0000345however, things are very slow00:31
KurozenOh sure, I mean to say it's late, I need to go to sleep, that's why.00:31
Bashing-omadam0000345: You *KNOW* I will try :P Ask and see how much I do not know :D00:31
adam0000345things were a lot faster on my regular hard drive :(00:32
adam0000345on Solid State, things are very slow00:32
adam0000345haha I know00:32
adam0000345and thank you!00:32
Bashing-omadam0000345: Any hints ' systemd-analyze blame ' ?00:33
adam0000345should I run that in terminal?00:33
Bashing-omadam0000345: Yeah - in terminal.00:35
adam0000345ok I ran that00:35
adam0000345how long should I wait to expect a response00:35
adam0000345so I see snapd.seeded.servicew00:36
adam0000345as top one00:36
adam00003453 min00:36
Bashing-omadam0000345: Will start immediatly with several "pages" of output.00:36
adam0000345it did not start immediately for me00:36
adam0000345had to wait 1 min00:36
Bashing-omadam0000345: Something reeks big time on your system. "sysop@2004x-c:~$ systemd-analyze >> Startup finished in 2.786s (kernel) + 11.385s (userspace) = 14.171s" On real old hardware that I have managed to get an SSD working on.00:38
adam0000345any ideas, I just installed ubuntu on the whole drive00:39
gurkihttps://askubuntu.com/questions/1277817/is-tor-browser-installation-broken <- i got the same issue00:39
gurkiis there a sane way to go forward?00:39
gurkii feel like manually messing with things isnt a very good idea00:39
gurkiubuntu 19.1000:40
Bashing-omadam0000345: "whole drive" ?? show us what you have - pastebin ' sudo fdisk -lu '. make sure here we are all on the same page.00:40
adam0000345ok will do one sec00:41
gurkii tried reinstalling (including purge) and manually providing gpg2 it seems to require although the dependency isnt resolved by apt00:41
Bashing-om!19.10 | gurki00:41
ubottugurki: Ubuntu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) was the 31st release of Ubuntu, support ended July 2020. See !eol and https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-security-announce/2020-July/005494.html00:41
adam0000345is the command just pastebin 'sudo fdisk -lu'?00:41
karainier@gurki sudo apt update ?00:41
gurkikarainier: no new packages00:42
Bashing-omadam0000345: i like termbin the better ; ' sudo fdisk -lu | nc termbin.com 9999 ' .00:42
gurkiBashing-om: while i see how i should update my ubuntu install a "broken" package shouldnt come out of apt :-|00:42
Bashing-omgurki: The repo no longer exist to get any packages ?00:43
adam0000345I cant do that00:43
adam0000345no internet connection00:43
gurkii can install new packages ...00:43
gurki"new" probably being the final version thats in 19.1000:44
gurkiits just torbrowser that stopped working lately00:44
adam0000345Bashing-om should I go into live usb and mount the drive00:45
adam0000345and show you info that way?00:45
Bashing-omgurki: The eoan repo is still on-line :)00:45
gurkiid have been surprised if it werent.00:45
Bashing-omadam0000345: For our purpose presently either will work - but booting a live environment takes a spell.00:46
gurkiso i guess its broken and ppl decided its wontfix since 19.10 is eol?00:47
Bashing-omgurki: EOL releases do die - http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/ .00:47
Bashing-om!eol | gurki00:48
ubottugurki: End-Of-Life is when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop. Make sure to update Ubuntu before it goes EOL so you get updates promptly for newly-discovered security vulnerabilities. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOL and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more info. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades00:48
gurkiim fully aware what eol is. eol should mean that things are stuck on $versions, not things stopping to work00:49
gurkisb has to manually change a packge for it to stop working00:49
gurkithats sth different in my book00:49
adam0000345Bashing-om sadly I think I will have to do live boot00:49
adam0000345because Ubuntu is super slow00:49
adam0000345one sec00:49
gurkiid need to strongly reconsider using ubuntu for anything i care about if that were the current ubuntu approach00:49
gurkihence why im picky on this one00:50
Bashing-omgurki: Your choice - ubuntu moves on every 6 months.00:52
=== i`m_a_baby_lady is now known as beaver
sarnoldgurki: if you don't want to upgrade every six months, you can stick to the LTS releases00:55

adam0000345Bashing-om what is the command to mount01:07
Bashing-omadam0000345:From live ' sudo mkdir /mnt/look ' sudo mount /dev/<sdXY) /mnt/look/ ' where the sdXY is known from the result of ' sudo fdisk -lu ' .01:10
nikolamShouldn't upgrade app (do-ubuntu-upgrade) say in GUI: "Upgrading Ubuntu to version 20.10" ? It is now saying "Upgrading Ubuntu to version 20.04" instead and it shouold be 20.1001:11
Bashing-omnikolam: Not if you are upgrading from 18.04 AND release_upgrader is set to "LTS".01:12
nikolamI am on 20.0401:12
adam0000345ok I did sudo mount /dev/sda2 /01:12
adam0000345that is what I was booting from01:12
nikolamBashing-om, and release updater is set to any newer version as I know.01:13
Bashing-omnikolam: verify: what shows ' grep -i ^prompt /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades ' ?01:15
nikolamBashing-om, Prompt=normal01:16
Bashing-omadam0000345: Ho-kay - for what reason are you mounting sda2 ?01:16
adam0000345because that is what I was booting ubuntu from01:16
Bashing-omnikolam: Agreed - should workie :( .. is the current 20.04 system fully updated ' sudo apt update ; sudo apt upgrade ' ?01:17
nikolamlsb_release -a and cat /etc/*release says Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS , uname -a says 5.4.0-52-generic #57-Ubuntu SMP01:17
nikolamBashing-om, yes, and yust updated minutes ago and reboted prior starting upgrade to newer version. It is I suppose bug in updater, not reporting newer release01:18
adam0000345Bashing-om I went onto live usb and now I cannot connect to the internet :(01:18
adam0000345it was working before01:18
Bashing-omadam0000345: Has no relevance, however, to know the drive's partitioning .. as to what the system is looking for - which in due time we will get to.01:18
Bashing-omnikolam: nvidia graphics ? And the propriatary driver reverted ?01:20
nikolamBashing-om, amdgpu, AMD RX480 and Intel 4600 (i5 4570)01:21
adam0000345any reason why my internet is not working now on live USB01:21
adam0000345it was just working this morning01:21
adam0000345so I am confused as to why my internet is causing these issues01:22
nikolamBashing-om, ony thing there is is that amdgpu repo from launchpad.. olaf something.. and I deisabled it and others (but not uninstalling) before upgrade started01:23
Bashing-omnikolam: So much for my Nvidia thought - All I can suggest at this point is to pastebin the output of that ' sudo do-release-upgrade ' for the channel's inspection. See what we can learn.01:23
adam0000345should I restart my live usb?01:24
adam0000345maybe I can still get wifi?01:24
Bashing-omadam0000345: maybe try and reboot both the router and the liveUSB ?01:24
adam0000345I am getting wifi from my current laptop?01:25
nikolamBashing-om, I have upgrade running on route. Should I just stop it and restart it since, it is just still fetching files now?01:25
nikolamok, doing it01:26
nikolamnikolam, can't re-do do-release-upgrade, it already moved sources in sources.list to 20.10 I suppose. Now updater offers partial upgrade, because I stipped it in mid-upgrade..01:30
nikolamI can go back to previous state of affairs with Btrfs snaphost I have and start over. :D01:31
Bashing-omnikolam: Oh Dear ! Maybe a fix ? .. what shows ' cat /etc/issue ; cat /etc/lsb-release ' ?01:33
oft_gegongI can only solve like 3% of all problems posted in this channel. Why am I even here?01:35
sarnoldwell if you handle 3% and I handle 3% and Bashing-om handles 3% that's like, 90% left01:36
karainiersudo -u vpn touch /media/kyle/media/test gets permission denied01:36
karainiercd /media/kyle/media && touch test works01:36
sarnoldkarainier: namei -l /media/kyle/media/test  may help you understand what permissions are necessary01:40
=== zbenjamin is now known as Guest11068
=== zbenjamin_ is now known as zbenjamin
karainierYeah, I'm pretty sure i've got the chmod and chown stuff right, this one is weird01:42
karainierNot sure if it's related to a mount or something01:42
karainierhttps://pastebin.com/65AkpRkS - shows user of daemon, group of user, group permissions for relevant dirs. Yet no touchy.01:43
sarnoldkarainier: so, my guess, sudo may not be setting the supplementary groups of your new process as you're expecting01:46
karainierSomeone in the #linux channel asked if it was my users 'primary' group, is that a thing?01:47
karainierI thought a group was a group01:47
karainierAny way to set 'primary' if there be such a thing? This user has one job...01:47
sarnoldkarainier: I don't know off-hand what sudo does for the supplementary groups of a process01:47
sarnoldkarainier: you could use https://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/systemd.exec.html#SupplementaryGroups=  to include the 'vpn' group in the process if you switch to using a systemd unit file to start transmission01:48
adam0000345Bashing-om I got internet, ok getting you info soon01:48
karainierI'll head down the ol' rabbit hole, beats googling 'transmission permission denied'01:49
Bashing-omadam0000345: \o/01:49
adam0000345do I have to mount to run this01:49
adam0000345sudo fdisk -lu | nc termbin.com 9999 ' .01:49
karainierGreat, I do use systemd, I just couldn't get logging to a file going (because of the same issue) so I ran as shown to see live output01:49
adam0000345or do you just want the results?01:49
Bashing-omadam0000345: No mounting . just that command and post back the link it provides.01:50
adam0000345ok will do ow01:50
adam0000345I am getting no link01:52
sarnoldkarainier: heh, that makes sense; it might also be worth configuring the unit file to capture stdout and stderr to the journal (I  think this is the default), and then you can use journalctl -f in one terminal, try things in another terminal, etc..01:52
adam0000345I run this sudo fdisk -lu | nc termbin.com 999901:53
karainiersarnold nice, didn't occur to me. I like it.01:56
Bashing-omadam0000345: Hum - tool not installed by default ? what shows ' which nc ' ?01:59
adam0000345now my internet has gone back down :(01:59
adam0000345no internet01:59
adam0000345but I have it on my laptop01:59
adam0000345my other laptop01:59
adam0000345so it is not a wifi router problem I think01:59
adam0000345Bashing-om I get /usr/bin/nc02:11
sybaritenoh hai02:11
adam0000345that is what I get02:11
sybariteni'm completely new to snap packages. I'm trying to install one, called bpytop. And it all seems normal. But i can't run it afterwards. Whats the first thing i wanna check? I expected to get a "bpytop" executable in my path.02:12
Bashing-omadam0000345: Then the fault of not connectiing to "nc" is not your system end :(02:12
adam0000345what is another tool?02:12
adam0000345any other way I can post a link here02:12
Bashing-omadam0000345: There is as to topic advises " pastbinit" amongst a score of others :D02:13
sybariteni installed snapd via apt-get and then i installed bpytop with sudo snap install bpytop. Do i typically have to do something more? This is python based and requires python-psutil, which i installed previously (using apt) . And python3.6 which i supposedly have02:13
adam0000345Bashing-om any easy examples02:15
adam0000345something I can just use really quick02:15
Bashing-omadam0000345: ' sudo fdisk -lu | pastebinit ' = providing that pastebinit is installed.02:17
adam0000345ok installed it02:17
adam0000345Bashing-om BOOM GOT IT02:18
adam0000345here is the link02:18
Bashing-omadam0000345: Looking ^ ,02:19
nikolamI have done: btrfs subvolume snapshot @_snapshot @now , and then sudo mv /mnt/@ /mnt/@_badroot sudo mv /mnt/@now /mnt/@  . But when trying sudo btrfs subvolume delete /mnt/@_badroot , get error: ERROR: Could not destroy subvolume/snapshot: Directory not empty ...02:20
nikolamwhat .. directory, when that is now unmounted btrfs subvolume..? (and system booted right form @ now.. (that is replaced older snapshot..)02:21
sybaritenproblem solved everyone! Apparenlty after a freshly installed snap (or snapd!) you should log out and log in, to get things into your $PATH ....02:22
nikolamIt's 20.04.1 on Btrfs02:22
Bashing-omadam0000345: Well, going to expose my ignorance - I expected to see a Boot flag - as I do not I am dead in the water for additional help as now I do not know. Anyway - sdb1 is what is that drive a factor ?02:25
adam0000345sdb1 used to have the MAC OS installed onit02:26
adam0000345I wiped it02:26
adam0000345I want to use it as an extra drive I can mount02:26
Bashing-omadam0000345: sdb1 - OK . We can ignore that drive for now - however as I have no EFI experience I do not know what to expect for the boot flag ( see your output for sdc ).02:30
adam0000345the sdc is for my usb stick02:31
nikolamjust using rm on Btrfs subvolume dataset/snapshot worked removing it.02:31
adam0000345the EFI System is the 512 M on /dev/sda102:32
Bashing-omadam0000345: Yeah but note that the USB stick has a boot flag - whereas your sda does not :(02:35
adam0000345the boot flag is the EFI (Fat012...)?02:35
Bashing-omadam0000345: Got me -- my knowlege is not up to answering :(02:36
adam0000345how do you know that the USB stick has a boot flag?02:36
adam0000345oh the * in the boot?02:37
Bashing-omadam0000345: Yeah -- that one :P02:37
adam0000345are you sure drives are supposed to have that?02:41
adam0000345does yours have that?02:41
adam0000345I did a default ubuntu install02:41
adam0000345on the whole dirve02:41
adam0000345that was the output02:41
Bashing-omadam0000345: Mine: https://termbin.com/k1eu - note that I boot legacy mode.02:43
=== gabkdlly_ is now known as gabkdlly
adam0000345Bashing-om was that default install?02:49
Bashing-omadam0000345: NO - I preset my partitions for my use cases.02:50
karainierIssue resolve. Apparently my "effective permissions" were incorrect. Used getfacl to uncover and setfacl to correct02:50
karainierThanks for the pointers guys02:50
Bashing-omadam0000345: Another look at what I have installed: https://termbin.com/5zec .02:53
adam0000345does this mean that the default ubuntu install is messed up?02:55
adam0000345since I do not see the boot flag?02:56
adam0000345whats weird is that I can boot into /dev/sda202:56
adam0000345it is just super slow02:56
Bashing-omadam0000345: No does not "mean" that --- just that as I am legacy and you are EFI we should not vpmpare apples to oranges . Someone who also boots EFI on a SSD should advise.02:57
adam0000345that makes sense, I am all ears for any advice, I have been pounding on this problem for days02:58
adam0000345I feel I am close02:58
adam0000345since I finally got Ubuntu to boot02:58
Bashing-omadam0000345: Do you also boot up very slowly ? My thoght is that maybe - as boot is not identified the system is spending time hunting for files.02:58
adam0000345I think that is true because when I boot from sda202:59
adam0000345it spends a while booting02:59
adam0000345I get a black screen02:59
adam0000345and a bunch of texts with Ok Ok Ok02:59
adam0000345until I get into Ubuntu02:59
adam0000345so it is defintly hunting for files I believe03:00
Bashing-omadam0000345: And with SSD, you should boot up in 2 seconds or so !03:00
adam0000345yes which is why I bought it!03:00
adam0000345I thought my SSD is not compatible but the fact that I see you are using Samsung SSD as well03:00
adam0000345makes me feel better03:00
adam0000345so at least I can cross that off the list03:00
adam0000345besides hanging out here and hoping for an answer are there any other areas where I can ask my question?03:01
adam0000345Ask Ubuntu stack overflow?03:01
adam0000345the issue here is I think I have to keep reexplaining the problme03:02
Bashing-omadam0000345: While we wait - we can read the boot log - see if we get any hints on the delays . ' journalctl -b -0 ' shows messages from the current boot. I got nothing better to do now than read a log file :D03:02
Bashing-omadam0000345: I frequent ubuntuforum.org. That is a great resource too.03:03
DarwinElfif I want the 'touch-focused' GUI on a Lenovo X1 Yoga (x86 (64)) do I need to install UBPorts or I just install the standard Ubuntu OS then install Unity?03:27
n00b101I installed 20.4-1 server image.03:50
n00b101I cannot do upgrade03:50
n00b101archive.ubuntu.* is not reachable03:50
n00b101tried nl.archive.*03:51
n00b101This time, I could fetch few packages, but still, it's saying not reachable03:52
n00b101Basically, I cannot upgrade/update the system03:52
tomreynn00b101: this can be a dns / resolver issue, or bad network connectivity (packet loss, bad routing)03:53
n00b101I've a good network03:55
n00b101I could ping other sites03:55
tomreynn00b101: you could use systemd-resolv to test resolving some domain names (it needs to be different ones, due to caching, though the cache can be cleared), or run a traceroute to different targets and see whether packets reachtheir target, and use ping to different targets to see how many packets are lost03:55
n00b101I'll try03:55
tomreyncould also be a problem with a proxy server03:55
n00b101No proxy server03:56
n00b101I'll try what you said03:56
tomreynthere can be some you haven'T configured03:56
tomreyntransparent proxies run by your isp / hosting provider03:56
tomreynmaybe start by showing   apt update 2>&1 | nc termbin.com 999903:56
n00b101Oops! If I remember correctly, the TUI while install asked me for a proxy server and I left it blank03:56
n00b101tomreyn: what is the meaning of piping output to nc04:00
n00b101That's a paste-like service?04:00
tomreynn00b101: yes04:00
n00b101How you read it04:01
tomreynyou don't have to, of course. it's just a way of sharing it with us04:01
tomreynn00b101: you'd need to post the url retruned on your temrinal04:01
n00b101that's cool04:01
n00b101tomreyn: just asking04:19
n00b101apt update 2>&1 | termbin.com 9999 is the same as apt update | termbin.com 999904:20
n00b101I mean, why 2>&1 is necessary?04:20
lotuspsychjen00b101: please when volunteers ask something, they need it?04:20
n00b101It's outputting everything anyway04:20
n00b101lotuspsychje: I'm just clear my understandings04:21
n00b101Not questioning what they told me04:21
lotuspsychjen00b101: you can use #ubuntu-discuss for command discussions if you like04:22
Bashing-omn00b101: "2>&1" to insure that error notices are not discarded,04:22
tomreynn00b101: i got side tracked there, but looks like you got your question answered already. :)04:31
lotuspsychjen00b101: did you get an output allright?04:41

lotuspsychjeim noticing in 20.04 after installing teamviewer, the snap-store doesnt list teamviewer under installed apps so i have to purge it via synaptic, it might be interesting to test this on 20.10 too, anyone else noticed it i can file a bug or affect and existing?07:29
mgedminhow did you install it?07:30
mgedminhm, synaptic implies a deb package07:30
mgedminthere was that little incident last week(?) where a snap store channel for snap-store had accidentally expired07:30
mgedminand some people were upgraded to the wrong version of snap-store that didn't have the right deb integration bits07:31
lotuspsychjemgedmin: teamviewer is via their website/deb/ppa so not really supported, but i assume this could happen to other software too07:31
mgedminah!  I don't know if snap-store is supposed to show locally-installed .debs not linked to any known repository07:31
lotuspsychjeyeah that might be the logic mgedmin, ill have a look around more07:33
haltHI All, I found a bug after system update, but unsure what package it comes from so don't know where to raise it, can someone help me to identify it ? It's around the compose key, I set my compose key to be Caps Lock as I never use it, but since the update I have to set and re-set again to make it work.07:43
mgedminhalt: probably gnome-settings-daemon07:50
bootheadHey folks, I was in here a little while ago when some kind of update (sunday evening)? Borked my wl driver. I've managed to build a driver for my wired connection and get back online, but both my wireless and my audio are still not working. I'm afraid I'm a bit stuck, can anyone help me out?08:34
tomreynactually, "wl" IS a wireless module, for some broadcom chipsets.08:43
tomreynoh, you didn't state otherwise, i misread.08:43
bootheadHi tomreyn - not sure if you remember you were helping me on monday08:44
tomreynboothead: i rmeember i was trying, but not very good at it.08:45
bootheadHonestly - I haven't had this much of a frustrating experience with linux of any flavour for 10 years or so - I thought we were over the hump, year of the deskop etc ;-)08:46
TJ-boothead: the problem you've got is non-mainline out-of-tree kernel modules, that don't get supported by the chipset manufacturers08:46
bootheadPossibly related (in that these issues sound similar): https://askubuntu.com/questions/1285883/no-sound-after-update-from-ubuntu-18-10-to-20-04 https://askubuntu.com/questions/1284262/default-audio-device-typically-built-in-analog-does-not-show-in-kubuntu-20-1008:47
bootheadTJ- I didn't do anything special to set up the sound card when I installed ubuntu ~2 months ago (at least not that I remember)08:47
TJ-boothead: for audio, often the issue is the HDMI audio device is discovered first and gets index 0 and that is used by default. So it needs the default changing via user's pulseaudio settings, or system-wide via the ALSA config08:48
bootheadIs there a way to use my broadcom based wireless adapter in a way that is better supported08:48
bootheadTJ- ha that makes sense - you wouldn't have a link to docs on how to do that would you?08:49
TJ-boothead: "aplay -l" will show you the audio device list and indexes08:49
TJ-boothead: also: https://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Setting_the_default_device08:50
ApOgEEboothead: which broadcom driver u're using?08:51
bootheadOh - that's weird pavucontrol now shows all my devices and the sound it working! I didn't even do anything! but the sound control in my xmobar is still saying N/A08:51
bootheadbcmwl-kernel-source ApOgEE08:51
ApOgEEwhich BCM is your device boothead ?08:53
bootheadNetwork controller: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)08:54
TJ-boothead: use "lspci -nn -d ::0280"08:56
boothead05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [14e4:43a0] (rev 03)08:56
TJ-boothead: to match drivers we need the vendor:product IDs - 14e4:43a008:56
bootheadAh gotcha08:56
TJ-drivers 'claim' those vendor:product IDs to indicate they can handle that device08:57
TJ-boothead: you can also try "ubuntu-driver list"08:58
bootheadbcmwl-kernel-source is the only non-nvidia one included there08:59
ApOgEEboothead: perhaps you may try this solution https://askubuntu.com/questions/1190728/broadcom-bcm4360-not-working-after-software-update09:03
bootheadApOgEE that looks promising! I have linux-image-generic-hwe-20.04  whereas all the other linux-image-5.4.0-*-generic are signed kernel images09:06
bootheaduname says  5.4.0-52-generic, so which version would I need do you think? (I already tried manually downloading and dpkg -i 'ing these: bcmwl-kernel-source_6.30.223.271+bdcom-0ubuntu5_amd64.deb bcmwl-kernel-source_6.30.223.271+bdcom-0ubuntu7_amd64.deb09:08
mgedmin(dpkg -i is a bad idea usually; you want packages to come from a repository that offers timely upgrades)09:09
bootheadmgedmin this was when I didn't have access to the internet :-)  I've since removed and reinstalled with apt (but it still isn't working :-)  )09:11
lotuspsychjeboothead: broadcom driver you can install offline from your install media too inside /pool09:13
bootheadlotuspsychje I tried that too - I think the update may have updated the kernel version?09:14
bootheadWHUUUT?! modprobe wl just worked and I have my link back09:14
bootheadAnother update in the background perhaps? I haven't done anything to it :-D09:15
lotuspsychjeboothead: its been a while since i notices broadcom issues, theu usually work nicely out of the box these days09:15
mgedminit is a mystery (but there are logs probably if you want to solve it)09:15
ApOgEEboothead: great09:19

quadrathoch2Ohh, you were talking about the sidebar shortcuts. Look into gsettings get org.gnome.shell.extension.dash-to-dock <tab> (for all the options) (to set them use set. (And then you can put them into the /etc/dconf conf file you create specifically for it (please do search in your fav search engine as I am on mobile right now.

imiI used the default gui updater which autostarts when there are new updates11:20

quadrathoch2Hm, do you maybe know if you use some hardware which could interfere with kernel updates?11:21
imithis ubuntu boots from usbc11:22
quadrathoch2Something like a Nvidia gpu or wifi card11:22
mgedminwhat are the errors shown before you get the initramfs prompt?11:22
imino nvidia, intel wifi but disabled11:22
quadrathoch2Ugh, that sounds weird. Does the boot process give you any hint maybe (with maybe removing quiet from the grub menu)11:23
imiok let me try to do that brb11:23
imifor some reason now my ubuntu booted up perfectly11:28
imiI think it's prime time to do an unplanned backup now11:29
quadrathoch2Sounds like a very good idea. But interesting that now it works fine imi11:35
BluesKajHi all11:36
imiwhen I first rebooted it booted the windows OS (which is secondary)11:36
imibut then I unplugged and replugged and then it booted up to initramfs11:36

quadrathoch2JayDoubleu: yes it does12:56
JayDoubleudarn it12:56
zetherooquadrathoch2: great, ok12:56
JayDoubleuand If I want to install gnome without the SNAP, is there a way to do that?12:57
quadrathoch2JayDoubleu: just remove it oO12:57
quadrathoch2JayDoubleu: theoretically yes. But it’s just way more work than just removing it12:59
JayDoubleuso if I remove the snaps and i have gnome as snap, will i have to reinstall the gnome ?13:02
tomreynJayDoubleu: as far as i know, (have not tested / checked 20.10), you can still remove snadp (and thus all snaps) safely without breaking the gnome DE.13:04
quadrathoch2JayDoubleu: the Gnome snap that is installed is not the DE you use, it’s just the „libs“ for the gnome stuff13:07
trupsalmsGood morning all13:08
trupsalmsI'm running darkice on Ubuntu, I have about 3 USB mic, I notice some time that the initial order is changed on some reboots, card 1, will now be card 3, 3 would be 2 and etc. Is there i way I could map to the device ID of the USB mics, so that it doesn't change.13:11
tomreyntrupsalms: i assume those don't show up in    ls /dev/input/by-id/usb-*    or do they?13:14
trupsalmsls /dev/input/by-id/usb-*13:15
trupsalmsdevice          = hw:1,013:16
tomreynah, probably rather /dev/snd/13:16
trupsalmsDarkice uses this term to ident the device13:17
tomreynthat's the alsa denominator to point to the hardware in the order it was initialized in, i think.13:18
tomreynhttps://www.alsa-project.org/wiki/Changing_card_IDs_with_udev should work, but there may be a better way to do it13:19
tomreynthis also suggests udev13:21
trupsalmsI've seen a few post about udev, all seems unsure when using darkice, because of the reboots still13:27
basenodedoes using full-disk encryption prevent me from deleting files/directories from sublime text?13:28
trupsalmsAnother option I'm thinking about is, someway of forcing the device to keep there names on reboot, but how would that be possible13:28

tomreynbasenode: "sublime text" is some third party text editor, i think? seems very unlikely.13:29
basenodetomreyn: apparently its related to sublime needing to put deleted files into trash, but FDE somehow changes the Trash location/id?13:29
tomreynbasenode: no, it doesn't. "trash" would be a file system location, but FDE does not modify the file system, it's a separate block device layer.13:31
basenodetomreyn: https://forum.sublimetext.com/t/unable-to-delete-files-folders/6470/413:32
tomreynthat's assuming that by "FDE" you're referring to the full disk encryption option offered by the ubuntu installers, i.e. dmcrypt-LUKS (managed through cryptsetup)13:32
tomreynbasenode: a python library reporting file system permissions issues has nothing to do with dmcrypt-LUKS.13:34

tomreynIniGit: i don't know for sure, but it's quite likely, since it's then a VM with a proper Linux kernel.15:16
tomreynIniGit: "For discussion and support, see #ubuntu-on-windows or ##windows."15:16
JohnnyLokay. i found it, but only in the main package.15:17
IniGitI'll try that, thx15:17
JohnnyLokay. I have it. Thanks guys.15:19
IniGitbtw is it possible to create an image of a NTFS drive with Windows on it via the dd image tool of Disks (sry I don't know the exact name, Ihope you know what i mean) and restore it, or should I better use Clonzilla for that?15:19
CarlFKIniGit: both work.  I like using Clonezilla.15:21
IniGitCarlFK: Does the drive where I restore the image on have to have the same size?15:23
CarlFKIniGit: no.  but...15:23
IniGitCarlFK: I mean can it be bigger15:23
quadrathoch2IniGit: with dd you copy bit by bit, so you even copy the empty space, that’s why the transfer takes longer and is most of the time not recommended15:23
IniGitAnd should I store the image on ext or ntfs? Is it even possible to store it on ntfs?15:24
IniGitquadrathoch2: But the image created via dd is smaller then when I just dd right?15:24
tomreynIniGit: for better recommendations, give us the greater picture, what are you try to do, and why.15:24
CarlFKIniGit:there are ways to shrink the fs.  and if you move to bigger, dd the whole drive will copy the smaller drivers partition table.  which won't know about the additional space15:24
IniGittomreyn: Backup my windows system15:25
tomreynIniGit: the full (bootable) system, in hopes it will be restorable?15:25
IniGitCarlFK: That means I'd not have all space available of the bigger drive?15:26
IniGittomreyn: yes15:26
tomreynIniGit: and you'd restore it to the same storages and computer, or different ones? i doubt the latter would work this way (without more changes).15:26
CarlFKIniGit: correct, but also no.  you can fix the partition table later.  but that's dangerous and you may trash everything15:27
IniGittomreyn: To a new harddrive on the same computer15:27
IniGitCarlFK: And do you know is that also the case with clonezilla?15:28
tomreynIniGit: i would suggest you check in ##windows whether that is going to work.15:28
CarlFKIniGit: clonezilla is basically all the disk utilites orgized with a menu that tries to make it easy for you to use15:29
IniGitCarlFK: I mean I can just try it and unplug the current harddrive and use the new one with a restored image for example15:30
IniGitBut I'm worried that windwos does crazy stuff then15:30
CarlFKIniGit: I suspect you should read up on partition tables.  then, most of your questions here will fall into place15:30
IniGitWould not be the first time15:30
IniGitCarlFK: ok15:31
CarlFKIniGit: warning: partition table things have evolved over time.  because now there are disks much larger than originally expected.15:31
CarlFKIniGit: so you may see something like "mbr only works on drives upto some size"  which may not be true any more.  I've lost track :p15:32
tomreynalso uefi, and efi system partition (which can be on a different storage)15:34
IniGitCarlFK: But generally if I dd to a drive of the exact same tpye and size, then I can switch back and forth theoretically right without windows doing crazy stuff like not booting or complaining about keys or something like that?15:34
tomreynIniGit: you may have noticed this channel is called #ubuntu15:35
IniGittomreyn: yeah, right I'm sry :/15:35
tomreynjust ask in ##windows for windows questions ;)15:35

coolusername12also I'm just gonna say it, I'm fairly certain I'm rooted and no one is online in ##security15:57
tomreyncoolusername12: because it can be buggy, as this messages suggests. and new versions usually provide bug fixes.15:58

coolusername12ACPI Error: AE_ALREADY_EXISTS, During name lookup/catalog (20190816/psobject-220)15:59
coolusername12sorry last try15:59
coolusername12same answer right?16:00
tomreynnax_: are you asking how to add a custom built (or third party provided) kernel, to the grub menu, as a bootable option?16:00
tomreyncoolusername12: probably.  journalctl -b | grep DMI:    will tell you which mainboard and bios version you have now16:01
coolusername12ok ##security updated me16:01
tomreyncoolusername12: it is very, very, very unlikely that there is any relation between these messages and "I'm fairly certain I'm rooted"16:03
nax_tomreyn, when I boot with unibootin16:03
nax_it says I need to add kernel first16:03
Guillaume___so i see the grub menu when i type escape, maybe there's a delay before it select the first entry, which is weird because i don't have any other entry except ubuntu advanced boot options, gonna check the grub16:03
tomreynnax_: hmm, i don't know what "unibootin" is.16:03

coolusername12yea I know the odds I just think I'm special, someone on the internet has it out for me and hard16:04

geosmileapt update is stuck at: 100% [28 Contents-amd64 store 0 B]17:28
geosmileany ideas on how to fix this?17:28
sarnoldweretav1a: it depends -- if you're moving a file within a single namespace, it should happen nearly instantly, and you should have only a single copy of it. you'll also have trouble actually interrupting it ..17:29
sarnoldweretav1a: if you're moving a file across filesystem mount points, then it's implemented via a 'copy' loop followed by unlinking the source file -- if you kill -9 the mv, chances are good it hasn't issued the unlink() call yet17:30
weretav1asarnold: in my case I am moving the file from a local disk to an NFS mount, mv would not respond to sigint?17:30
sarnoldweretav1a: oh, ugh, because nfs :/17:30
weretav1aok, actually not nfs, but glusterfs ;p I think it likely works similar tho.17:30
tomreyngeosmile: did your file system run full by chance? you can cancel using ctrl-c.17:31

b247_euhi, wondering about suspend-then-hibernate in #ubuntu, anyone tested if working? i'm using swap file (not partition) ...17:48
mgedmindoesn't hibernation need a swap partition specifically?17:50
b247_eui quess yes ... because suspend-then-hibernate works but .... hibernate actually performs shutdown ... that's why asked the question if shall i use swap partition instead of swap file17:53
mgedminthere can be other reasons for that17:56
mgedmine.g. if you upgrade your kernel, don't reboot, suspend to disk, then on resume it'll say "oh the kernel doesn't match the hibernation image" and will simply boot a fresh session17:57
mgedminthe message is hidden away discreetly somewhere in your dmesg/journalctl and is easy to miss17:57
mgedminalso, heh, if you hibernate to install more ram into your laptop, thinking you'll save some effort reopening all your running apps17:58
mgedminon next boot it'll say the amount of physical memory doesn't match what was stored in the hibernation image and refuse to resume17:58

mgedminubuntu gets hate because of contempt culture basically: https://blog.aurynn.com/2015/12/16-contempt-culture18:24

Sbur3No improvement.  When I look at task manager, still that weird process.  And I can't seem to kill it or terminate it or stop it23:00
RadSurferis there any way to properly load in a text file containing Ansi and expanding the commands, say in Vim or some editor that can interpret Ansi?23:00
Sbur3I sometimes wonder if someone's playing with my computer23:01
tomreynSbur3: it's probably fine to have this process then23:01
Sbur3tomreyn: Any ideas as to how to get the upgrade that is out there?23:02
tomreynSbur3: can you show    apt update && apt -sy full-uograde     on the pastebin?23:02
tomreynSbur3: can you show    apt update && apt -sy full-upgrade     on the pastebin?23:02
Sbur3tomreyn: I'll be right back with that23:02
tomreyn^ typo fixed23:02

BalooRJanyone know if there is an equivalent of regionset for bluray drives?23:04
BalooRJI have a blu-ray optical drive in my PC running Pop OS and wanted to know if regionset worked for the blu-ray portion of it23:05
BalooRJI had to use regionset to set the DVD part to Region 1, but now testing with a blu ray it seems that the region needs to be set on the blu ray portion of the optical drive as well23:05
tomreynSbur3: apt --purge autoremove && apt policy libboost-thread-dev23:05
RadSurferIs there something called 'ansifilter' for ubuntu?23:05
Sbur3tomreyn: As sudo, I imagine23:06
leftyfb!popos | BalooRJ23:06
ubottuBalooRJ: The Ubuntu channels can only provide support for Ubuntu and its official flavors, since other distributions and derivatives have repository and software changes. So please use their dedicated support venues, for example: Linux Mint (#linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org), Kali Linux (#kali-linux), and LXLE (#lxle)23:06
tomreynSbur3: yes, please, the former23:06
BalooRJleftyfb, ah understood. Though really I am just looking for a package that would be in the Ubuntu 20.04 repos.23:06
Sbur3tomreyn: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/2JcpxcSkXB/23:08
tomreynSbur3: apt --purge -y autoremove && apt full-upgrade23:09
tomreynboth with sudo23:09
quidnuncDoes anyone know how to setup xrdp? I can't get it working and don't see much in the logs23:09
Sbur3tomreyn: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/bbGkmY432R/23:10
tomreynSbur3: do you have any apt related GUIs running?23:11
tomreynSbur3: if not, what does this report?    sudo lsof /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend23:12
Sbur3tomreyn: Not that I'm aware of. But I put "sudo" in both parts of the last command before and after the && and got another verbose23:13
Sbur3tomreyn: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/pmvPmt2MBZ/23:13
tomreynSbur3: oh that calrifies it, sorry23:13
tomreynSbur3: it's not clear why this package is being held back, though. do you have apt preferences (pinning) set?23:14
tomreynls /etc/apt/preferences.d/23:14
jadaxhi, using ubnt 18.04. After connecting FTDI USB cable, I get no activity under minicom. But if I unplug FTDI USB and plug back again, then it works, any ideas what's wrong?23:14
Sbur3tomreyn: To your lsof command, I got this ... https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/bRxGF8xy4q/23:15
jadaxmodem/network manager getting in the way, perhaps?23:15
tomreynSbur3: thats fine, thank23:15
Sbur3tomreyn: And no verbose from the ls command23:16
tomreynjadax: you're referring to Sbur3? if so, where did you see those mentioned, modem/network manager (what am i missing?)?23:16
tomreynSbur3: you mean no output?23:16
tomreynSbur3: ls /etc/apt/preferences    also, does this exist?23:16
jadaxtomreyn nope, i'm just asking about FTDI USB serial23:17
Sbur3tomreyn: Nothing typed on the terminal in response to the command ls except for the command line prompt23:17
tomreynjadax: oh, sorr,y i missed this first line where oyu asked23:17
tomreynSbur3: sudo apt -y install apt-forktracer && sudo apt-forktracer 2>&1 | nc termbin.com 999923:18
tomreynthis is to get a better picture of why thiere is this pending installation, and your apt package management systems' state23:19
RadSurferCAN SOMEONE tell me please : is there a way to save to a file the scrollback buffer from terminal?23:20
Sbur3tomreyn: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/sbmB3N8BHG/23:20
tomreynSbur3: https://termbin.com/oy77 is the output of apt-forktracer23:21
Sbur3tomreyn: I'm sure it is. But I have no clue what that means for me23:21
tomreynSbur3: packages without [ brackets ] on the same line are leftovers, for which no apt repository is configured23:21
tomreynSbur3: they will just get in the way. either purge them, or find an apt repository providing these very packages so they have an upgrade path. but for a release upgrade, it'd be safer to remove them.23:22
fructoseRadSurfer: The script command might be what you want23:23
Sbur3tomreyn: So that crap is what is preventing me from upgrading?23:23
RadSurferWhat script command?23:23
fructoseman script23:23
=== disillusion- is now known as disillusion
tomreynSbur3: that is well possible. i would not recommend upgrading a system in this state23:23
EriC^^RadSurfer: are you speaking for the future or you want the stuff that's already on the scrollback right now?23:24
Sbur3tomreyn: Is there a simple command or some kind of magic thing to do this?  And brackets aren't ( ) but rather [ ] ?23:24
tomreynSbur3: at least some of these packages seem to be leftovers from when you ran ubuntu 19.04, and ubuntu 19.10.23:25
tomreynright, lines without [ ... ] mean no apt source is configured23:25
Sbur3¨tomreyn: I keep running "autoclean" and "autoremove" regularly23:26
tomreynSbur3: this won't help if you have packages in this state23:27
tomreynSbur3: this is just for testing, it doesn't make changes:   sudo apt-forktracer | grep -vF '[' | cut -d ' ' -f1 | xargs apt -sy purge23:29
ChetManlycan the ubuntu partitioner partition macos (macbook air) or is it better to use the macos partitioner?23:29
Sbur3tomreyn: So I should purge almost the entire list except the maybe 4 things that have [] as opposed to those don't?23:29
tomreynSbur3: tightly spoken, PPAs and third party packages and even community maintained packages are not supported (i.e. any packages not from main or restricted, for your current Ubuntu release)23:32
Sbur3tomreyn: Ok, so here's the next set of information https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/GnksSXdF32/23:33
tomreynSbur3: but there is a good chance you can get away with keeping those two or three packages, for which you still have an apt repository configured, installed23:33
tomreynSbur3: you missed a blank space there in the "cut" command23:33
tomreynjust edit it and run it again23:34
Sbur3tomreyn: I added a blank space too many or I was missing one?23:35
tomreynSbur3: missing one23:35
tomreynsudo apt-forktracer | grep -vF '[' | cut -d ' ' -f1 | xargs sudo apt -sy purge     # is correct23:35
tomreynsudo apt-forktracer | grep -vF '[' | cut -d '' -f1 | xargs sudo apt -sy purge     # is what you wrote23:36
ChetManlyholy shit is lsblk ever more easy to mix up when you dont have persistent mount points23:36
Sbur3tomreyn: This should be better : https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/w8rZSy6Pfy/23:37
tomreynSbur3: okay, this should be more readable, hopefully:   sudo apt-forktracer | grep -vF '[' | cut -d '' -f1 | xargs sudo apt -syV --autoremove purge23:38
tomreynSbur3: have a look at the list of packages in the section "The following packages will be REMOVED:", see if you're ok with removing them as well as all of their configuration files off /etc, and any data (stored outside your home directory), too23:41
tomreyne.g. for a database server this could mean loosing databases, for a webserver it would mean loosing all virtualhost configuration files23:41
Sbur3tomreyn: It seems to have done its business. I can try to upgrade now?23:43
tomreynSbur3: it hasn't, unless you removed the -s option to apt23:44
tomreynnote also the "NOTE: This is only a simulation!" at the beginngin of the output23:45
tomreynto proceed, if you're happy with purging allthese packages and their data, remove the -y option passed into apt, and run again23:45
Sbur3tomreyn: So what you are saying is that I remove the -s ... just the -s or all -syV and it will do the dirty work of cleaning up and I can upgrade?23:46
tomreynjust the 's'23:46
tomreynso make it23:47
Sbur3tomreyn: So I keep the yV and it will happen?23:47
tomreynsudo apt-forktracer | grep -vF '[' | cut -d '' -f1 | xargs sudo apt -yV --autoremove23:47
Sbur3tomreyn: Will this crash the system and make me lose everything?23:47
tomreynSbur3: hopefully, not. but then i cannot speak for the quality of non ubuntu packages23:48
Sbur3tomreyn: Too late to hesitate ... it's in the process of doing its job23:49
tomreynSbur3: running     sudo apt-forktracer     again  after that will show you what's left23:50
tomreynshould be these: manuskript google-chrome-stable nordvpn nordvpn-release secureboot-db lynis23:50
tomreynsecureboot-db is actually an ubuntu package, but the version you have installed is from focal-proposed, an apt repository you do not have configured at this time.23:51
Sbur3tomreyn: I think I'll need to reboot before I check to see what is left and if it worked ... brb?23:53
tomreynno :)23:54
