emadeddin_How can I log in as root? I have a root password02:37
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo02:39
emadeddin_<krytarik> yes root02:40
krytarikWell, that is to indicate if you didn't do anything special, you only got the admin password of your regular user - with that you could do "sudo -i" though.02:41
emadeddin_<ubottu> I created the password via sudo passwd root02:41
krytarikWell, there you go then - enjoy it!02:42
krytarik(Entirely unsupported and unadvisable.)02:43
emadeddin_How do I log in? What is my username?02:43
emadeddin_I want to learn to login root02:45
emadeddin_I logged out the system, then what other users should I enter there?02:46
emadeddin_In Linux Mint, I had full access to the root folder by right-clicking.02:48
guivercemadeddin_, you should login as root with a GUI, root login has potential problems, and when needed should be terminal only (using `sudo` to temporarily elevate permissions is safer).  Root using wayland for example is impossible (by design to increase security)03:23

IrcsomeBot<DirhamTriyadi> how to restore KDE default settings05:52
IrcsomeBot<DirhamTriyadi> ?05:52
Dave[m]6<IrcsomeBot "<DirhamTriyadi> ?"> well, in most panels of the settings app, at the bottom (left?) of each panel, you will see a "Restore Default Settings' button that restores the default setting for that particular panel06:02
Dave[m]6<guiverc "emadeddin_, you should login as "> if you need a longer-term access as root, you can open a terminal window and execute the command "sudo su". Then you'll be root until you type the command "exit"06:04
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> I'm getting  ```Executing grub-install /dev/nvme0n1 failed```06:44
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> When trying to install from USB06:44
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> And dualboot windows06:44
Dave[m]6it's difficult to help you with so little information..... do you manage to run a live session?06:57
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Uh, it exited me07:01
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> i386-pc/normal.mod not found grub rescue07:01
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Now I'm getting this07:01
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> I think I'll just nuke the entire drive07:01
Dave[m]6you don't usually need to nuke your Windows....07:02
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> How do I fix this then? It installed on my laptop but my PC just won't let it work07:04
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> First time I tried, it also failed installing. I can see grub menu but windows will not boot. I fixed that. Tried installing again, and this happened07:05
Dave[m]6<IrcsomeBot "<YesEyeCan> How do I fix this th"> Well, it's difficult to advise you with the information we have.... Do you manage to nun a live session from your usb stick without actually installing?07:06
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Yes07:06
Dave[m]6ok, well that's a first achievement.... have you used kubuntu before?07:07
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Yeah. I've installed it on my laptop no problem, dual booting windows07:07
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> But my PC that I build got these errors07:08
Dave[m]6is your Windows installation essential to you? Maybe you can install kubuntu, and manually partition your hard drive to leave space for Windaws , and then install Windows later...?07:10
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Uh I can do that?07:11
Dave[m]6yes, during the Kubuntu installation process, you will get the option to manually partition your drive... you can create one partition for kubuntu and one partition forWindows07:12
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Will I get any problems in the future if I do that? Since I'm not sure why Kubuntu is all of a sudden giving me these errors07:13
Dave[m]6in my experience, you won't have problems.... the only complication might be when you install windows, because after the Windows installation you might not see your grub menu (Windows is responsible for that) and then you will need to fix the grub ment (it can be done without too much trouble)07:15
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Yeah I can fix the grub menu after windows updates07:18
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> https://askubuntu.com/questions/655011/windows-10-upgrade-kills-grub-and-boot-repair-doesnt-help07:18
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> This one right?07:18
Dave[m]6that way, you will have your kubuntu up and running...07:19
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Alright thanks, I'll try that07:19
Dave[m]6well that post is long out of date, so things won't necessarily be like that....07:20
Dave[m]6things have advanced since then, and kubuntu/ubuntu is much more robust07:20
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> Any way to set up from Windows's own dual boot menu?07:21
Dave[m]6good luck, i might still be around later if you have questions/problems07:21
Dave[m]6not as far as i know, and i've installed Kubuntu/Windovs dual boot much more recently07:22
Dave[m]6King Windows doesn't do its own dual boot menu07:23
Dave[m]6you need to think about whether to configure your bios for uefi boot or legacy boot..... uefi boot can be more complicated but it's the only way to get Windows and Kubuntu both bootable at the same time, because Windows will only install under uefi boot07:24
Dave[m]6with the problems you were having so far, i'm tempted to think that it's your bios that needs proper configuring....07:26
IrcsomeBot<YesEyeCan> I think I'm already under UEFI. I used RUFUS to install onto my USB and it did ask me to use MBR instead of GPT07:37
Dave[m]6check your bios setup by rebooting and pressing <F2>07:38

MaikGuest86611: try them both from a live usb session and then decide$11:41
Maikalso, it's something that belongs in a offtopic channel since it's not a support related question11:42

franzopow[m]maybe... I installed some software using python 315:32
franzopow[m]this is the sources list15:33
Dave[m]6<franzopow[m] "https://termbin.com/l1c6"> i don't see any python-related ppa there.... how are you upgrading? have you tried just executing 'sudo do-release-upgrade' from the command line?15:40
Dave[m]6often, i like to keep my kubuntu disposable, by regularly backing up my data, and then i just do a fresh installation instead....15:42

Dave[m]6<stryker "I like making my own distros w/ "> got a link for that? i'm curious15:48
Dave[m]6PinguyBuilder.... where do you get it?15:49
stryker[m]7It's a fork of Remastersys15:49
franzopow[m]can the problem be in do-release-upgrade command?15:49
Dave[m]6<franzopow[m] "wow that woudl take a lot of tim"> in reality, it doesn't take so much more time than upgrading.... especially when you run into complications.... anyway, you're always supposed to back up your data regularly, right?15:50
franzopow[m]yes. I've done that luckily15:50
Dave[m]6i don't think so.... but using multiple ppa's can make the equation very complicated....15:51
Dave[m]6see the time you're spending now? ultimately, it could be simpler just to nuke and reinstall....15:52
franzopow[m]<Dave[m]6 "see the time you're spending now"> I would like to avoid that15:52
BluesKajfranzopow[m], sometimes new official releases don't respond to the sudo do-release-upgrade command without the -d flag15:52
franzopow[m]that was my approach always.15:52
Dave[m]6then you can go with your ppa's again.... if you're going to use ppa's, my policy is to stick with an LTS release...15:53
franzopow[m]<BluesKaj "franzopow, sometimes new officia"> because they are searching for LTS releases?15:53
franzopow[m]<Dave[m]6 "then you can go with your ppa's "> I could. Looks like this failed upgrade didn't harm my system15:53
franzopow[m]but I still have to restart it...15:53
Dave[m]6😉 you might feel differently in a few hours....15:54
