davido_Seems so.... https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/PjWr38PfT2/00:00
davido_Let me check the dpkg verify00:00
mgedminI had a thougt that those file changes might have been _caused_ by dkms trying to build the acpi-call module00:00
davido_Yes. dpkg --verify shos the same list as well.00:00
davido_shows00:00
mgedminI think it's time to ubuntu-bug acpi-call-dkms00:01
davido_The joy of being an early adopter of a stable release.00:01
mgedminyeah, I'm currently forwarding the X11 abstract socket to the real X11 socket via socat so that snapified chromium will work00:02
davido_It's a lesson I keep re-learning. Even for LTS releases, it seems to pay to wait a few months.00:02
davido_(which is a bit of an indictment on the concept of a stable release)00:03
mgedminexcept if everyone waits, who will be the ones to discover the problems and report them?00:03
davido_Nothing like testing in production.00:03
davido_hmm, shouldn't ubuntu-bug get past the "Extra debug information will be added to the bug report automatically" page eventually?00:04
mgedminwhat is a non-LTS release even doing in production?00:04
davido_By "production" I mean released on the world.00:05
mgedminthe launchpad bug process always takes annoyingly long00:05
davido_My laptop isn't critical path to anything in particular.00:05
TJ-I don't see anything in acpi-call-dkms to cause those files to be written00:05
davido_My $work laptop (same identical hardware) is on LTS.00:06
* mgedmin uhh has 20.10 on his work laptop because shiny00:06
davido_https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/acpi-call/+bug/190145200:09
ubottuLaunchpad bug 1901452 in acpi-call (Ubuntu) "Upgrade to 20.10 error. acpi-call-dkms : ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid." [Undecided,New]00:09
davido_hopefully that addresses it sufficiently.00:09
davido_for my own edification, what is the severity of this on my system?00:10
mgedminwell, apt/dpkg will try to rebuild the dkms module on every apt operation, unless you apt remove it00:12
mgedminand you can't make use of whatever hacks you used with /proc/acpi/call00:12
mgedminother than that everything should be fine00:12
davido_That's reasonable for now. I can live with that.00:13
mgedminI would probably apt install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) after removing acpi-call-dkms, just for peace of mind00:13
davido_I actually did try removing it. something pulls it back in.00:13
mgedminthat's ... unpossible?00:15
mgedmin(well, very surprising)00:16
davido_I don't suppose you're wrong. Which means my attempt to uninstall it must have been ineffective. I'll try again and see what's up.00:16
TJ-not necessarily. If apt has been configured to also install Suggests: then tlp would cause it to be installed00:17
TJ-davido_: "sudo apt purge acpi-call-dkms"00:17
davido_Right. That much is ok. Now let me do a fresh sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade......00:18
davido_I seem to be clean now.00:19
davido_So thanks! :)00:19
davido_(until I remember why I needed acpi-call-dkms at some point)00:19
davido_:)00:19
TJ-it can be used by TLP to do a few power-related operations00:20
designbybeckMy new keyboard doesn't have Media controls. I was able to set my F9 key to mute/unmute with: amixer -q -D pulse sset Master toggle    Is there something similar for toggle play/pause? I haven't found commands like that without installing other software00:28
davido_designbybeck Usually the media controls like play/pause emit a key sequence. Do you have access to a keyboard that you could use to make note of the sequence?00:38
designbybeckhmmm yes00:38
davido_You could do a key binding to produce that sequence.00:38
designbybeckthe other one was wireless00:38
designbybeckhow would I capture that davido_00:39
Ascavasaionhow do I get to Ubuntu CLI?  I no longer see the grub menu on boot-up... It goes straight from BIOS flash screen to the ubuntu loading splashscreen.  My keyboard and mouse are not working after I tried to install Nvidia drivers.  So I need to get to CLI before the ubuntu GUI login screen.00:54

rud0lfAscavasaion: as far as i know, you hold "Shift" key upon boot00:58
Ascavasaionrud0lf: Aaaah, let me try that.00:58
rud0lfAscavasaion: confirmed, "With BIOS, quickly press and hold the Shift key, which will bring up the GNU GRUB menu."00:58
Bashing-omAscavasaion: EFI system then it is the escape key that grub looks for, spam the wxape to to catch that window of oportunity.00:59
davido_Actually you probably don't even need to do that designbybeck. Just open Settings|Keyboard Shortcuts and set a shortcut for pause/play.01:01
designbybeckAh! I totally over looked those presets! Thank you davido_01:02
designbybeck...."well that was easy!"01:03
Ascavasaionrud0lf: shift never worked... sigh01:06
rud0lfd'oh01:06
rud0lfAscavasaion: see what Bashing-om said, it is "Escape" on EFI systems01:07
AscavasaionExcllent, Esc got me to the grub menu... but I see there is no safe boot/or similar as there used to be.  There is a boot to CLI, but that does not allow me to log in... it just gives me a > prompt without gaining access to my folders and changing settings in my xorg.conf file, etc.01:12
rud0lfi suggest pendrive or cd boot for ubuntu preview installation01:14
Bashing-omAscavasaion: "advanced oprions" >> recoverry concole.01:14
rud0lfoh or that :)01:14

AscavasaionBashing-om: Perfect, thank you!01:16
Bashing-omAscavasaion: Then next you will want to take the kernel out of read-only mode. easiest is to activate "networking".01:18
AscavasaionBashing-om: That networking to get read/write again is brilliant.  Thank you01:24
Bashing-omAscavasaion: Give yourself some time - there is no substitute for experience :P01:25

leftyfbmaplambda: is your printer networkable or only connected through usb to your computer03:13
TJ-maplambda: indeed, that's what "sharing" does03:14
TJ-most devices are now networked and advertise themselves on the network03:14
maplambdaleftyfb, it was USB but then I changed to networkable (I ran hplib on my laptop which I think configured the ip of my printer ? and then I went into CUPS and had to add the printer and selected share with other devices)03:15
maplambdainteresting its been years since I had to set up a network or anything remotely like this. think its changed a lot from what I remember03:15
leftyfbmaplambda: what model printer is it?03:16
maplambdaan HP deskjet 363003:16

TJ-!mainline | DarkTrick07:44
ubottuDarkTrick: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds07:44
DarkTrickTJ-, That says "if one is using select proprietary or out-of-tree modules, you will need to uninstall the module first": The worst case is the new kernel will not work, but my current one will continue working, is that correct? (I'm using VirtualBox)08:01
TJ-DarkTrick: if you're using DKMS managed out-of-tree modules then it should have a fair chance of working UNLESS a kernel interface changed the ABI08:02
TJ-DarkTrick: it's worth trying even if only to see if the SDHCI is readable, before removing it and returning to the distro kernel08:03

ace_me1Hi all. I am trying to setup a bind server to allow my domain work with my own dns server. I was following https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-bind-as-an-authoritative-only-dns-server-on-ubuntu-14-04 and added ansible receipt to configure it. The problem si that I have ubuntu 20 and runnign from my laptop: nslookup server xx.xx..... and querying for mydomain.com is saying  server can't find MYDOMAIN>COM SERVFAI10:23
ace_me1any help or a better tutorial please ?10:24
BrandanoGood morning. Is there a way to reinstall the release theme? I had an issue with the Nvidia legacy drivers, managed to fix it via SSH, but now I have 20.10 with the 20.04 theme10:25
BrandanoRepositories seem to be the correct ones10:25
ace_me1my named.conf include named.conf.local where I did added a master zone for my domain. Is it ok like this ?10:37
* Brandano always had trouble with networking stuff10:38
BrandanoI'd check in #openwrt. Maybe not exactly on topic, but they are likely to know10:39
BrandanoAnd naturally I did fix my "issue". Everything was updated, just had to select the background image in gnome-tweaks10:40
tux_has anyone ever had luck with using shim to load systemd-boot?10:40
Brandanoace_me1: actually, ignore that. Most of openwrt stuff will be relative to dnsmasq10:42
ace_me1I was expecting to see some ips and configured subdomains of mydomain.com Brandano ?10:43
ace_me1my vps provider went down 18 hrs ago without notice. I am afraid of the bad :) COVID and total "close"10:45
ace_me1and I try now to setup something to come back online again10:45
Brandanoace_me1: well, on a desktop machine most of the domain stuff will be handled by the router or dhcp server. what you'll find in the BIND is just the localhost stuff10:46
BrandanoHmm, on a server machine it's different10:46
BrandanoBut even there, I think the dns stuff for your domain is handled by the VPS provider's router10:46
BrandanoI mean, you probably have a static IP and a managiing interface somewhere else10:47
BrandanoIf it's meant to be a web server10:48
ace_me1I have a domain provider where i am trying to set my own NS1.... and NS2... which I did configured on an VPS provider10:48
ace_me1I did follow the https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-bind-as-an-authoritative-only-dns-server-on-ubuntu-14-0410:49
ace_me1...tutorial10:49
BrandanoPretty sure 14.4 is out of LTS10:49
ace_me1I just adjusted the /etc/default/bind to OPTIONS="-u bind -c /etc/bind/named.conf"10:50
ace_me1but systemctl status bind9.service shows at first10:51
ace_me1Oct 26 12:41:20 ns1 named[16055]: network unreachable resolving './DNSKEY/IN': 2001:500:2::c#5310:51
BrandanoI am way too old to understand IPv610:51
Brandano#53 tells me that would be a dns server?10:52
ace_me1yes :) i am old too but not so sharp:)10:53
ace_me1I am trying to allow internet to see my web server so I am setting up BIND services on a rented server10:53

ace_me1in bind ?10:55
Brandanoif you have a static ipv4 it might be simpler, but it's a temporary patch10:56
Brandanoeventually everything will be ipv6 only10:56
ace_me1maybe I should ignore this for the moment10:57

lotuspsychjeFF maximized it hides, and mouse hover shows dock11:52
BrandanoI think the upgrade process from 20.04 to 20.10 should detect if Nvidia Legacy drivers are in use and prompt the user to switch to noveau or a newer driver11:55
DarkTrickQ: I moved my root partitions (successfully). Now the boot takes more time. It hangs about 5 seconds after detecting my keyboard. Isn't there a "journalctl -???" command to analyze this further?11:55
BrandanoThe way it fails during the upgrade can be very nasty11:55
lotuspsychjeBrandano: there's no magic red button concerning nvidia drivers, updating can always result into a bug11:56
lotuspsychjeBrandano: there was a known nvidia bug that delayed the 20.10 release too11:57
Brandanolotuspsychje: the 440 drivers won't compile on the latest kernel11:58
Brandanobecause Nvidia dropped its support11:58
lotuspsychjeBrandano: latest as in groovy's kernel?11:58
BrandanoSo, if those are in use, upgrade fails, leaving the GDM unusable11:58

lotuspsychjeBrandano: so ubuntu-drivers list doesnt show 440 for your card anymore?11:59

mgedminbut not the fact that you'll lose all graphics if you upgrade today12:02
BrandanoI got a "newer" card on order. The nouveau drivers work with the old card, I assume with less optimization12:03
Brandanothat's why I think it should be at least mentioned in the upgrade procedure that it might be safer to switch to nouveau before the upgrade.12:04

spirii installed ubuntu and selected french swiss keyboard. then i created a password which is not working anymore14:30
spirithis happened for the second time now14:30
spirii create a password on install, and it's not working anymore to log in to the display manager14:30
spiriwhat happened with ubuntu?14:31
tribaalspiri: normally the login screen should display the currently-seleected keyboard. Can you check that it's indeed Swiss-French?14:32
tribaalfor the record I did install a Swiss-French machine recently (focal though) and it worked for me (I'm in Switzerland as well)14:33
spiritribaal, i'm about to reinstall ubuntu and I checked keyboard layout is not the one i selected for password creation14:34
asdfghleftyfb, still there?14:34
asdfghi suppose that my version is the latest right=14:35
asdfgh?14:35
tribaalspiri: ah, then that does sound like a bug in the installer yes. Maybe try to set a simple ASCII password temporarly, enough to get you into a running, installed system, then upgrade it to something better once you're sure the keyboard config is the one you want?14:36
tribaalit's obviously not a fix, but it will give you a running system at least14:36
spiritribaal, i do this now14:36

Deano59Jackneill: "Run lshw -c video, and look for the line with "configuration". The loaded driver is prefixed with "driver=". Example output:"15:50
Deano59then google the driver to see if anyone else has issues. probably have, though. 20.10 has messed up so many drivers, including nvidia. :D15:51

BustinHey there, on a fresh install of 20.10, but graphic performance on my hybrid card, with external monitors (2) is VERY slow and poor. Seems there is no acceleration, and if I disable the laptop monitor as a display, and use the 2 external monitors, the system is basically unusable (very laggy, almost unresponsive).16:51
listen_erswhich card is it16:52
BustinNvidia RTX 2070 max-q16:52
listen_ershave you use nvidia drivers before?16:53
Bustinyea, prior to this release, everything worked fine.16:53
listen_erswas it with nouveau or nvidia drivers?16:54
Bustinnvidia16:54
listen_ersthere is a binary blob you could run if you want to stay with the closed source drivers i guess16:55
Bustinsorry listen_ers, seems wifi stops replying too! becomes unresponsive, have to turn off, then re enable to get 5 minutes of activity.17:02
listen_ersoh hmm yea i think dealt with that before a long time ago17:02
puxavidaI upgraded to 20.10 last week. All upgraded fine except the 20.10 kernel is not in the grub menu.  I have zfs bpool/rpool on the system.  How do I get the new kernel to show up in grub so I can boot from it?17:02
Bustincould it be a kernel bug? none of this happened in the LTS release.17:02
listen_erswell to be sure you find your wifi device drivers and recompile it with the current standing kernel to be absolute sure in usual case but with a package manager you are suppose to look for it in the specific repositories17:03
listen_ersyea its something with a kernel module possibly17:04
listen_ersor you could check running services disabling network running services to see if those could make it better17:05
puxavidaWhen I list the kernels - dpkg --list|grep linux-image|grep ii I see 5.4.0-40.44 which I'm booting from and also 5.8.0-2517:05
listen_ersthen goign through steps to get wifi back up before looking into the kernel stuff17:05
Maikpuxavida: update grub: sudo update-grub17:06
listen_ersbut you have the information17:06
puxavidaMaik, when I do that at the end it says: Device-mapper: reload ioctl on osprober-linux-sda4 failed: device busy and same message for sdb4 since I have it in raid1.  But I thought it would be using sda1.17:13
puxavidaWhen I reboot, it just has 5.4.39 and 5.4.40 kernels.  No 5.8.17:22
Deano59you're not on 20.10 then.17:23
puxavidaIt must not like my zsys setup.17:23
puxavidaWhen I check the system info, it says 20.10 in kde and plasmashell -v says 5.19.5 where on 20.04 it was 5.18.5.  lsb_realease -a also says 20.10.17:27
mgedminpuxavida: do you have the ubuntu-desktop metapackage installed?  linux-image-generic?18:06

I see that thrift 0.11.0-6 was successfully built for focal on 8-26-2019. Is there any way to specify that version? https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/thrift/0.11.0-621:26

AppXprtwhere is the official apt / apt-get channel?21:58
AppXprtSo maybe instead of apt-get install --reinstall it would finally be time to create an apt-get reinstall method?22:00
AppXprtit's a lot shorter to type...?22:01

MrokiiHello. I'm using Kubuntu, but maybe that is something general to Ubuntu... I have a hi-fi system connected to my motherboards' audio-output, and upto now all sounds were played through that. But as of today, after upgrading to Kubuntu 20.10, all sounds are played through my monitors' speakers. The only device available in the audio-settings is hdmi (over which my monitor is connected). Any thoughts22:17
Mrokiianyonw what the problem could be?22:17
=== Tyrasuki7 is now known as Tyrasuki
MrokiiI found a solution (as always, just after asking the question). I had to kill pulseaudio and then everything worked as it should again.22:23
Bashing-omMrokii: \o/22:24
MrokiiWeird problem though.22:25
ash_worksitomreyn: I mean't in a convenient report-y fashion22:25
ash_worksi(preferrably one that doesn't care about a filepath22:25
ash_worksiI thought maybe there might be an ssh command for this?22:25
tomreynash_worksi: i'm not aware of one (but may have missed it).22:31
tomreynyou can always write a script, i guess22:32
tomreynash_worksi: ssh -G somehost | awk '/^hostname/ {print $2}'22:36
ash_worksior just grep hostname22:37
ash_worksibut -G is great22:37
ash_worksithanks22:37
tomreynjust "grep hostname" would output more, e.g. there's the canonicalizehostname option22:38
ash_worksitomreyn: indeed22:39
tomreynnote that if there's no matching Host configured, it will return what you looked for22:39
tomreynso "somehost" in this example22:40
ash_worksitomreyn: thanks22:46
leagrisHello, Is there a place I can check the GPG public key imprints of Ubuntu team members posting into security@ubuntu.com, so I can verify the GPG keys used to sign messages are actually from them?22:55
tomreynleagris: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/Contacts22:58
tomreynthere's also #ubuntu-hardened22:58
tomreyn(but technical information on vulnerabilities should indeed be transmitted via encrypted email only)22:59
leagrisAnd why som members are allowed to post on security without signing their message with GPG, like: Benjamin Romer, Mike Salvatore,23:00
leagrisSuper, thank-you tomreyn23:01
ash_worksitomreyn: just killin it today23:01
tomreynleagris: i don't know the policies for posting to security@ubuntu.com, if those aren't documented on the wiki, best ask in -hardened23:02
malwar3hun73rtrying to mount a vmfs6 drive  and am getting a floating point error? anyone seen that?\23:05
leagrisSteve Beattie <steve@nxnw.org> signed Message-ID: <20201020005818.GI7555@nxnw.org> on List-Id: Ubuntu Security Announcements date Date: Mon, 19 Oct 2020 17:58:18 -0700, but the GPG key used to sign is expired since 05/06/202023:05
leagrisWhere should I notify the security team of the issue?23:06
leftyfbleagris: didn't you just post the email address for contact the individual responsible for their own GPG key?23:07
ash_worksiI installed tmux from Application Software; but I don't see it when I search for it in that overlay that comes up with the the Super button23:07
leftyfbash_worksi: tmux is a command-line tool. Not gui23:08
leftyfbash_worksi: grep doesn't show up either :)23:08
leagriswell make sense23:09
ash_worksileftyfb: well, when I "launch" it from Application Software, I get a terminal with a green bar across the bottom; if I just launch the terminal using Super, then I don't get that bar, so I am kinda getting the impression that tmux is not affecting the standard terminal when I run it that way23:09
leftyfbash_worksi: you run tmux once you open a terminal23:09
ash_worksi"run it that way" = using the Super key23:09
ash_worksihm23:10
leftyfbash_worksi: same with screen, same with byobu23:10
ash_worksiwhat does bu mean in that?23:10
ash_worksiso.... perhaps then I do not have tmux?23:11
tomreynleagris: if your local copy of someones' public gpg key has expired, this doesn't mean its expiry hasn't been extended by the owner.23:11
ash_worksi(considering that `tmux` does not work in the terminal)23:11
leftyfbash_worksi: what happens when you type tmux ?23:11
ash_worksiI get the "you don't have this, try apt..." message23:12
leftyfbash_worksi: ok, so install it23:12
tomreynleagris: particularly, if you retrieve the public key from the url provided on the wiki, and import it to your local gpg, then run --list-key against it, you'll note it hasn't expired.23:12
ash_worksibut what is this thing I have then?23:12
leftyfbash_worksi: no idea, you have yet to define "this thing". You also haven't explained what it is exactly you're trying to accomplish.23:13
ash_worksileftyfb: right now, my objective is to understand my system a bit better23:13

ash_worksiwhen I launce "Ubuntu Software" I can search for tmux; I wish there were a link or some unique identifier to the one currently listed as "installed" but I don't see such a thing23:14
leftyfbash_worksi: apt list --installed |grep tmux23:14
ash_worksino output23:14
leftyfbash_worksi: then you do not have tmux installed. Feel free to install it using : sudo apt install tmux23:15
leagrisI am stupid sorry gpg --refresh-keys23:16
ash_worksileftyfb: again, my objective is to be able to discern what stuff is; isn't there some way for me to communicate to you what I have apparently installed through the "Ubuntu Software" app?23:16
leftyfbash_worksi: looks like you might have "tmux-non-dead" snap installed23:16
leftyfbash_worksi: snap list |grep tmux23:16
ash_worksithe only distinguishing thing I can see is 'Developer:  ghwomb'23:16
leftyfbyup, that's tmux-non-dead23:16
leftyfbash_worksi: Source: snap store23:16
ash_worksiI see23:17
leftyfbash_worksi: it's better to just use the command line23:17
ash_worksiwhere should I go to get more info on tmux-non-dead?23:17
leftyfbash_worksi: snap info tmux-non-dead23:19
leftyfbash_worksi: following the links brings you to https://github.com/Samuel-Berger/snap-tmux23:20
ash_worksithanks leftyfb23:24
ash_worksiis using screen or tmux the best way to rid myself of using the mouse when just doing typical cli stuff (in this case I was looking for a codesandbox link in my logs and was going to copy it to a browser)23:25
ash_worksiI know I was able to accomplish vim-like searching in screen23:26
tomreynif you're wondering how to search through the output to the default virtual terminal, you can just press ctrl-shift-f in gnome-terminal23:29
ash_worksitomreyn: but then I don't have copy-mode available23:30
ash_worksialso I do kind of want to be able to jump up and down arbitrarily like irssi or vim ^D/^U23:30
tomreynctrl-a esc enters copy mode in screen23:32
tomreynctrl-b-[ in tmux23:34
tomreynas almost always, such things are documented in man pages23:34
leftyfbash_worksi: just use history?23:35
ash_worksileftyfb: elaborate?23:36
leftyfbash_worksi: type: history23:36
ash_worksileftyfb: I don't see how that applies23:36
leftyfbash_worksi: then pipe it to grep to search for commands you've typed23:36
ash_worksithat's _ok_ for somethings, but I might just be catting a file or something23:37
ash_worksiI find that a big use of my mouse is scrolling up in my terminal; maybe there are other ways around this -- do you not find that useful leftyfb23:38
ash_worksi?23:38
ash_worksilike, I often scroll up in this chat23:38
leftyfbash_worksi: not for me personally, no23:38
leftyfbI have scripts for that23:38
ash_worksiin the last example, I wanted a lot of context for the urls23:39
ash_worksithat consumed more than 1 screen worth of data23:39
ash_worksi(I was using ag)23:39
ash_worksiI could pipe to less I suppose23:39
leftyfbpipe to grep23:40
ash_worksiI told you I already used ag23:40
ash_worksis/ag/grep/ and I'm in the same position23:41
ash_worksithe amount of context I desired (to facilitate my memory of the link) was more than 1 screen (plus there being multiple results of course)23:42
ash_worksithere are many grep operations that would take up more than 1 screen23:42
ash_worksi`| less` isn't a bad idea23:42
ash_worksiI am sure there's an alias I can configure for less that keeps color23:42
ash_worksi(yes, `ag --color ... | less -R`)23:44
BustinHey there, on the latest release of Ubuntu 20.10, fresh install, but am noticing some graphics performance issues. I have a laptop, using hybrid graphics, the discrete gpu is the nvidia rtx 2070 max-q. Animations are not "smooth", any help would be appreciated.23:44
leftyfbash_worksi: I don't understand the purpose of using less. IF you23:45
leftyfbIf you're using less to search, that is what grep is for23:45
ash_worksileftyfb: in this case I searched for codesandbox; there are many grep results; in order to understand what each codesandbox is talking about I need to read through the conxtext; this was enough to make the output more than 1 screen23:46
leftyfbash_worksi: I'm not sure what "codesandbox" is23:46
ash_worksiit's a fiddle site23:47
ash_worksibut not important, the point is there's a lot of them; there'd probably be a lot of whatever ubuntus pastebin is for this channel23:47
ash_worksi!paste23:48
ubottuFor posting multi-line texts into the channel, please use https://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use https://imgur.com/ !pastebinit to paste directly from command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic.23:48
ash_worksiso if I grep paste.ubuntu.com; I'll probably get a lot of results23:48
ash_worksiand the output will be bigger with -B5 or however much context23:48
tomreynBustin: if i'd acquire graphics hardware which depends on proprietary drivers to perform properly, i'd probably stick to LTS releases even more than i usually do.23:51
BustinYea, there was no issues using the LTS, ran very smooth.23:51
BustinCan I upgrade the LTS to use gnome 3.38?23:52
Bustinsafely23:52
tomreynno23:52
Bustin=/23:53
tomreynwhy would you need to?23:53
Bustintrying to change the refresh rate on my second external monitor to the 75hz it supports, renders the monitor off, says "no display connected" - argh. Also, because I like some of the new features 3.38 has, folder management, reordering applications, etc.23:54
tomreynyou could sell your nvidia card, buy an amd, use ubuntu 20.10.23:55
BustinI mean, would be an option, IF this wasn't a laptop.23:56
Bustincough, eGPU? Lol.23:56
tomreyni heard they also sell laptops without nvidia graphics.23:57
Bustinprobably true, lol.23:57
ash_worksiI wonder, is there a copy mode in less?23:59
