davido_How can I troubleshoot issues with a Wacom tablet on Ubuntu 20.04? The behavior is that the Wacom Tablet settings in the Gnome Settings tool have no effect on the tablet: absolute vs relative, map to monitor, letterbox, etc. No effect.00:25
wolfzrat@davido_: hi perhaps this link can guide you from here on00:36
davido_i'll review, thanks00:37
davido_I've got a centos 7 box on an older kernel that doesn't flinch but my Ubuntu 20.10 system is unhappy with it.00:38
davido_(sorry for previouisly mentioning 20.04)00:38
davido_Figured it out. This is a bug.01:00
davido_If I use xsetwacom set $id MapToOutput $display, and use the pad ID, it doesn't work. If I use the stylus ID, it works.01:01
davido_The gnome settings tool is mapping the pad ID. The setting needs the stylus ID to be mapped to a display.01:01
davido_That's backwards from every bit of online documentation I find.01:02
davido_However, I'm not quite sure how to describe that bug, nor do I have any idea who to submit it to. But I can work around it with a script at least.01:02

b247_eugood moring everyone, need some help to install ungoogle-chromium on ubuntu 20.10, please help07:08
rk4what have you tried07:32
ducasseb247_eu: that's not really supported here, as it's not supplied by ubuntu07:35
anarhistHello. At this moment all of the browsers on my machine fail to play youtube videos. youtube-dl works, and when i go to the page for the video, i can see that it loads fine. but then i get the message "If playback doesn't begin, try restarting" I have rebooted the machine and restarted browser, i have gone into private mode and tried a new profile. i have noticed that before this has started i did a dist-upgrade and there were messages about adding cer07:57
anarhisttificates, so i have reinstalled all the ceritificates (apt-get install --reinstall ca-certificates) i have then rebooted but still the problem remains07:57
anarhistthe problem went away for 30 seconds one time after i have shut down the machine and all routers, i have then waited a little bit and started everything back up again. but then very quickly it stopped working after playing one adert on a video07:59
anarhisti am on xubuntu 18.0407:59
guivercanarhist, I can't imagine what would cause that; do you have the same issue if you use *live* media (eg. Xubuntu on thumb-drive and using Try Xubuntu)08:09
anarhistguiverc, wow, i didn't quite go that far yet. i guess that i can wait for the problem to magically go away, if it doesn't i'll try playing around with that. for now i guess i can try another computer, i do have it handy, and maybe load up something on a smartphone... to see if it is an issue with youtube in my house or my setup08:12
anarhistok, i think the problem is completely different. vimeo also doesn't work, and local videos play with no sound08:14
guiverclive media is usually a good idea, it uses the same hardware, but being a different OS/system (even if just uninstalled version, it'll still have a somewhat different config)  if it works there, but not your installed system, it's likely a config issue (creating a new user would be my next test after live)08:15
anarhistaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh! it was a problem with the wrong sound profile being selected08:15
guiverc:)  easily fixed then08:15
anarhistyeah, just about an hour an a half08:16
anarhistand asking on #seamonkey (my browser), #xubuntu, and here... getting whole bunch of people helping me... and rebooting a whole bunch of times08:16
anarhisteasy fix!08:17
anarhistif somebody wants to know, it was the fact that surround sound was selected as a profile, but i have no surround sound08:17
anarhistit probably couldn't connect some audio stream or something08:18
guivercanarhist, I suspect the audio (with surround signal encoded) was sent to your speakers wasn't understood so they remained silent, but that's just a guess08:23
anarhistand the browser refused to play the video at all, until the sound was fixed08:24
anarhistthat was the strange part08:24
anarhistbut now i know08:24
guivercokay, that sounds more like it was in the OS (not speakers)08:24
anarhisti guess it is something similar to how youtube videos stop playing when i get a skype call08:25
anarhistthere is some detection mechanism somewhere08:25

b0ulderHey :)08:35
b0ulderanyone experience using usb-c docking stations with laptops running ubuntu? I08:35
b0ulderI am wondering if I need to get a vendor specific station (eg. lenovo) one or if there is a acceptable solution for most vendors, which works with linux08:36
pikapikaI have heard docking stations are quite expensive08:37
b0ulderthat is not my biggest concern actually08:45
zaggynlhowdy, I work with laptops/docks at work, I could give this a test08:47
rk4b0ulder: sure, w/ a new thinkpad w/ doc. works fine for charging and as a usb hub, sound/video didnt work when i tried08:52
b0ulder@rk4 well, I would consider video the most important feature using a dock :D08:54
b0ulder@zaggynl have you tried startech models or vendor speccific ones?08:55
rk4b0ulder: oh, and the doc eth works fine, comes up as a second nic which is neat08:56
tatertotsb0ulder: since there are different "modes" of USB-C supported by each chipset/card you'll have no concrete way of knowing what a docking station will support until you actually physically own one09:07
tatertotsb0ulder: your computer may or may not support video over USB-C09:08
b0ulderso I'll choose a docking station with my preferred peripherals and then search for compatibility issues09:08
b0ulderbut those may also depend on the linux-client as well I suppose...09:09

maxupphey folks, i'm having a bit of a weird one. I'm on a fresh kubuntu install, and no matter which mirror i chose, apt update always runs into some errors11:23
maxuppand pretty much all attempts to install packages via apt result in no installation candidate11:24
maxuppi have even set the mirror list to the example one from the docs, same result11:24
maxuppletting the software-sources app chose a mirror let's it pick an ftp one, which isn't supported by default, whole different issue11:25
maxuppany ideas what's going on here?11:25
maxuppi guess the apt mirrors are jsut broken again at the moment11:28
maxupplinux really isn't what it oncec was11:29
Deano59maxupp: mirrors are fine here. do you *have* a working Internet connection?11:29
Deano59can you ping?11:30
maxuppjust pinged
BluesKajHi all11:30
Deano59can you ping the apt source? the http one?11:30
maxupparchive.ubuntu.com is pingable11:32
maxuppapt update works for the most part, it's just some essential ones that fail11:33
Deano59maxupp: you probably have an outdated/broken repo. try and remove the one's that *don't* work.11:34
Deano59so it IS working: "apt update works for the most part,"11:34
maxupplike i said, runs into some errors11:35

Deano59are you lost, maxupp? are you okay?11:38
Deano59again, we need exact "errors"11:39
Deano59our crystal ball isn't working today.11:39

xtaowhen you have something that constantly crashes every time you boot the PC and you get the "a problem has been detected, do you want to report it?" is it better to only click on yes once and then click on cancel every other time, or just click on yes every time. wondering if that annoys anyone if you're constantly reporting the same crash11:51
maxuppnoone looks at these anyway, don't bother11:52
xtaoheh. well yes that's one way of looking at it11:52
guivercxtao, if the crash gets uploaded, a .uploaded gets added to the /var/crash directory indicating it's been uploaded & you'll not get prompted again.  the repeated prompt means it couldn't upload, or upload failed.11:52
xtaoahh. yes there's no .uploaded, only .crash11:53
guivercI disagree maxupp, they are monitored mainly by the system which records how many users hit the issue, thus the 'heat' of particular bugs.. uploading is important & valuable11:53
xtaoso if it changes to .uploaded and then another crash of the same pricess happens, it *won't* prompt to upload the new crash because it already has the .uploaded ?11:54
maxuppnot that anyone cares, but the hash mismatch issue stemmed from Hyper V being running on the VM Host11:56
guivercYou can refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for more details, if `ubuntu-bug /var/crash/[filename].crash` fails, I often re-try with `sudo ubuntu-bug..` (which I don't believe should be necessary, but I've had it work on rare occasion where it fails without sudo)  then `rm` the crash file if it's still annoying me..11:59

SergeHi there, I am trying to use some of the APIs provided by the latest linux kernel in Ubuntu (specifically the fanotify api). I have installed the new kernel (5.9) and the headers. However, when I go to recompile my program in gcc, I the new headers are not "visible" to gcc.14:43
ducasseDescriptioned: you might find kodi easier, but use the one in the team-xbmc ppa, *not* the one in the repos14:43
SergeI am not very familiar with how gcc, the kernel headers, and glibc all fit together14:44
ducasseDescriptioned: we don't really support it, but the one in the repos is broken by debian14:44
SergeBut I have verified that there are new header files on my machine (located in /usr/src/linux-headers.../include). However, my /usr/include/x86.../sys/fanotify.h is still the old version. How can I update that so that I can use the new APIs provided by the kernel?14:45
Descriptionedim really disapointed from this, and that no so much issues or "missing things" was years back from ubuntu lol :14:46

ena3hi everyone, I can't seem to make my printer work since I changed ISP this morning. I configured it years ago with an ethernet connection but I can't seem to find how to connect to its web interface. Could anyone lend some help? The printer is a Samsung ML1630W17:19
ena3i tried connecting directyl the printer to my computer and running the "ip a" command, but it seems the printer has no IP assigned. I tried adding a manual address with the ubuntu network manager but it doesn't let me save the configuration17:23
leftyfbena3: your issue is a printer issue, nothing to do with ubuntu. You'll need to find out from your router or from the printer itself which ip it has. Also, plugging in the printers ethernet directly to your computer will not help you discover which ip it's getting from the network when plugged into the network17:31
=== jeddo- is now known as jeddo
ena3@leftyfb oh, ok. I figured I might ask here as I didn't manage to give it an address with the ubuntu network manager. I'm completely out of options and I didn't know where to ask. Do you have an idea where I might get help with this?17:41
leftyfbena3: you did not gave an ip address to your printer using network manager on your computer. You gave your computer an ip address on the port that you plugged into the printer directly.17:42
leftyfbena3: it's best if you read the documentation on your printer to learn how to manager it's network settings17:42

Why whenever I use "-j ufw-user-input" in ufw rules (e.g. after.rules), ufw crashes on reload with "ERROR: Could not load logging rules" and the only fix is to "iptables -F && iptables -X"? I also tried "-j ufw-before-input" and while stuff seemingly works, restarting the machine yields no internet access until I disable ufw.17:43

arif-alisarnold: yeah that was version 2018.3.4, but there isn't an explanation for newer releases, other than the most recent one saying "remove salt, left in focal-proposed after release"20:13
sarnoldyeah :( you could ask doko about it, but it's not in -release, for whatever reason..20:14
arif-alicool, I'll ping him, when he's online20:19
Aavar_I am running out of space on / (i have a separate /home). How can I diagnose and remove something?20:19
sarnoldAavar_: ncdu -x /   is very handy20:20
Aavar_sarnold: Tnx, i'll try that20:22

dbuggerHello everyone20:32
dbuggerI have an issue, when trying to pair my bluetooth keyboard (Logitech MX Keys) through a bluetooth dongle. The "Enter PIN" dialogue menu comes, but no matter how many times I try to input my PIN, the dialogue does not go away. It never pais. Does anyone know why?20:33
sarnolddbugger: I wonder, is there a cancel button? what happens if you just hit that?20:37
dbuggersarnold, pressing the cancel button does not close the dialogue20:38
dbuggerALT+F4 does, though20:38
sarnoldoh weird20:38
dbuggerI posted my question here, btw20:38
dbuggerYou can find more details about the problem20:38
dbuggerI even put a bounty on the question, since i was getting no answers20:38
sarnoldtwo months :( ouch20:39
sarnoldis there a numpad on this keyboard?20:39
sarnoldtry toggling numpad switch?20:39
_Sym_maybe try building a newer kernel20:40
codecutterI thought I had cron set up to handle auto renewal for letsencrypt ssl but I am now getting expiration notice email to renew ssl20:44
mgedmincodecutter: check /var/log/letsencrypt to see if renewals failed20:45
mgedmincodecutter: also if you change the set of domain names covered by a cert, you get these misleading expiration notices20:45
codecutteri did not change anything20:45
mgedminor you could run certbot renew manually to see how it fails20:46
dbuggersarnold, i tried both... nothing20:46
donofriowhat is the ubuntu management tool for enterprise called, not spacewalk?20:46
codecutteri have so many files in directory20:47
mgedmindonofrio: landscape?20:47
codecuttermgedmin which file?20:47
donofriodid it come from spacewalk? or another open source project?20:48
mgedmincodecutter: every certbot invocation creates a new /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log; old logs get rodated and get numerical suffixes20:48
mgedmincodecutter: I usually do sudo ls -lrt /var/log/letsencrypt, find the last large log file, read that one20:49
mgedmin(small log files are from certbot renew running and noticing it has nothing to renew)20:49
Maikdonofrio: no20:50
Maikhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landscape_(software)  https://landscape.canonical.com/20:50
codecuttermgedmin https://pastebin.com/FAXu7vbs (example.com = myhost.com)20:52
mgedminspacewalk seems very redhat-oriented20:53
mgedmincodecutter: our guess was right: the renewals are failing20:54
mgedminif you want to see _why_, you'll have to read the entire log, not just the last 13 lines20:55
mgedminit's a damn shame #letsencrypt was shuttered down20:55
mgedminthe support is now on https://community.letsencrypt.org/20:56
Maikmgedmin: it is and came out a year after Landscape: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spacewalk_(software)20:56
mgedminanyway, the http-01 authorization failure shows that your web server is incorrectly configured20:56
mgedmincodecutter: what authorization plugin are you using?  if you don't know, you can look it up in /etc/letsencryt/renewals/*.conf20:58
mgedmincodecutter: also, what web server are you running?  apache?  nginx?  something else?20:58
codecutteras reverse proxy20:58
mgedminand the auth plugin ... ?20:58
mgedmingrep authenticator /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/*.conf20:59
codecutterauthenticator = nginx20:59
mgedminthat sounds right, and since I primarily use apache, I don't think I can help you21:00
mgedmintry asking on https://community.letsencrypt.org/21:01

fradif I upgrade to 20.10 and I pause it while it downloads new packages or turn off the computer, do I have to start from scratchor will the system just keep downloading from the last package?21:36
tomreynfrad: you shoudn't try to pause or interrupt the release upgrade.21:39
Bashing-omfrad: If release upgrading and you turn off the computer while in that process - you are likely to face a clean fresh install. The file system for 20.10 might then be very inconsistent :(21:39
OtterCoderHello! Is there a way to set a $PATH for a .desktop file? I've got a binary set correctly in the $PATH in .bashrc, and while it works when I use bash, it's not reading when I open Sublime Text via icon.21:41
=== Napsterbater is now known as Guest47035
=== Napsterbater_ is now known as Napsterbater
tomreynOtterCoder: maybe something along these lines would work:   Exec=env PATH="$PATH:my extra path" someprogram21:47
dbuggerI have a weird issue in 20.04. I am doing "sudo apt install v4l2loopback", but I am getting an "Unable to locate package" message. Does anyone know how to solve this?21:47
tomreynOtterCoder: or, if expanding $PATH won't work like this, you can try this instead: Exec=sh -c "env PATH=\"$PATH:my extra path\" someprogram"21:49
mgedminOtterCoder: if you set your custom path in ~/.profile rather than ~/.bashrc, it should be loaded by your GUI session21:55
OtterCoderThat last one did the trick. Thank you!21:57
fradafter upgrading, must I reboot asap or can i do it later?22:41
Bashing-omfrad: depends on what you had running and want restarted with the new configurations.22:43
fraddon't understand. The whole system was running22:43
Bashing-omfructose: If there is nothing that you need to restart at this time - then one can reboot at some later time.23:05
mgedminit's a good idea to reboot sooner rather than later23:07
mgedmine.g. screen locking doesn't work until you reboot23:07
fradis xsysinfo like sysinfo but for x environments?23:10
Pr070calhi guys i never came back to let you know how i did with 20.10 and overlayroot23:34
Pr070calright if you want an os partition structure like android read only os /system and rw /data so if you wipe the device you upgrade your device system is updated but data is not wiped so all your apps are still there but os is wiped and updated23:36
Pr070calyou need overlayroot edit /etc/overlay.conf23:36
Pr070calput that line at the bottom of the conf23:37
Pr070caland make 2 dirs overlay and overlay-workdir23:37
Pr070calon the partition in the conf23:37
Pr070caland it works after reboot and mounts for you23:38
Pr070calthats it23:38
Pr070calall changes to root are stored in overlay23:39
TJ-Pr070cal: are you assuming /home/ is on another file-system? how about /boot/ and /var/ ?23:39
Pr070calno /home /var and /boot are on /23:40
Pr070calis now readonly and changes are written to /dev/sdb1/overlay23:40
Pr070calif i wipe /dev/sda1 and install new os i then reinstall overlayroot edit the conf and all my programs and changes to / are reloaded after reboot23:42
Pr070calso i install os install overlayroot conf reboot install snort install iptables and everything is there if you wipe / and reinstall overlayroot23:43
TJ-Pr070cal: for that use-case I'm unclear of the benefit? if you're using overlayfs to maintain a pristine OS install and writing changes only to a separate backing device, then why would you need to wipe the *pristine* OS install and reinstall it?23:45
Pr070calto install a new os23:46
Pr070caland restore all your programs23:46
Pr070calwhen you reboot all your programs are installed23:46
TJ-Pr070cal: but *what* new OS? if you're using overlayroot then from the point you configure it any newly installed packages are in the backing store, but they are tightly integrated and depend on what is in the underlying read-only OS install. So if you change the underlying OS (which implies many many shared library dependencies will be broken) and then reinstate the loverlay, many applications in23:49
TJ-the overlay may fail to work correctly, and that may also affect programs in the new OS install too23:49
Pr070calok 20.04 wipe it install 20.1023:50
Pr070calok you might be right but how about snort ids takes ages to configure23:50
Pr070caland everytime you have to read everything23:51
Pr070calalso you have everything backedup no need to copy23:51
Pr070calplus os might stop working and you have to reinstall everything23:51
Pr070calall programs run from terminal and that all you need is the bin and the confs23:52
Pr070calthen a new version is a bin and confs23:52
Pr070calno system stuff that need to comply to the os23:52
Pr070calprogram version is independant to os23:53
TJ-Pr070cal: I'd do something more fine-grained - have separate (LVM) LVs for rootfs, /home/ /var/ /boot/ and /etc/ --- then I'd allow /etc/ to be an overlayfs and possibly /var/ (although that could also cause issues) and with /home/ being on a separate file-system it won't be affected by a replacement OS23:54
Pr070calworks on rpi too23:54
Pr070caland you can backup to cloud23:54
Pr070calalthough i havnt tried kubernetes on 20.10 yet23:54
TJ-Pr070cal: most executable binaries are dynamically linked to shared object libraries and they declare the exact version of the shared library they require. One of the main things that changes on a new OS release is the shared library versions increase as new functionality is added and older functionality removed23:55
Pr070caloh your right dependencies23:56
Pr070calbut then run upgrade23:56
Pr070calanyone used kubernetes23:57
TJ-so then your writable backing store is overwritten with files from the new OS ... but that might not work if core executables are already broken - seen that many times when core library versioning is broken23:57
