siwicaIn order to run `btrfs rescue zero-log /var` (I have /var on a separate btrfs fs) I need to unmount /var. What would be the appropriate way of doing so? (Ubuntu 20.04 with systemd).00:26

Squarismim on ubuntu 20.04. CTRL+ALT+UP/DOWN moves between workspaces. Seems to be a default setting that is not reflected in "Settings->Keyboard shortcuts" ?00:41
SquarismThis is what worries me about the whole ubuntu thing. These inconsistencies.00:42
doug16ksiwica, boot from a live usb disk00:47
BlueEagleSquarism: Did you check dconf-editor?00:47
doug16ksiwica, anytime you can't do it because the current system is using it, reboot into live iso00:47
BlueEagleSquarism: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1099107/18-04-change-shortcut-for-switching-workspace00:48
SquarismBlueEagle, yeah. It seems i need to use that. But man, its 2020 - this should not be "ok" for ubuntu.00:48
BlueEagleSquarism: I think it should be OK to not overwhelm users with choices that will in the vast marjority of cases left at default. See also Windows Registry.00:51
doug16kis it really that hard to make a UI binding for each setting though? windows needs these tweak things too, unfortunately00:52
SquarismWell ubuntu "Settings->Keyboard shortcuts" didnt even list this value but the option was there.00:53
BlueEagledoug16k: It is not hard, but overwhelming users with choices that are not going to be changed by 98+% of users is not a good idea either.00:53
Squarismso it was "overwhelm" + inconsistent then00:53
Squarism...and hiding of information00:54
doug16kthat's why you put all those in some "advanced setup" area where you basically warned them that they probably don't need to touch it, by being "advanced" settings00:54
doug16kthen nitpicky people feel happy that they can control everything00:55
SquarismThe problem on linux is that many applications conflict their shortcuts with "OS/window manager" ones00:55
deltabsiwica: any processes still using it? lsof should tell you00:55
Squarismthen its pretty damn important this shit works00:55
BlueEagledoug16k: If you're advanced then dconf editor is the tool for you. Maybe there should be a notification that these settings are available in that tool?00:56
BlueEagleSquarism: If that is the language you are going to use then I will abandon this conversation at this point.00:57

droid3stupid question if i put my deb file on my github account is there a way to add it to the apt-get or software center software like a ppa would be???01:06
doug16kdroid3, like this? https://assafmo.github.io/2019/05/02/ppa-repo-hosted-on-github.html01:07
droid3i have the .deb file made how do i get a ppa like url for it if i push it up to github01:12
doug16kwhat that page says. change /path/to/my/package-a_0.0.1_amd64.deb to your actual deb file01:13
doug16kand replace the placeholders like ${GITHUB_USERNAME} with actual information01:13
doug16kmachines need to be sure it is really the package and not tampered, therefore you must do the gpg thing for authenticity verification01:14
doug16kapt can check and be very certain the package is not tampered01:15
doug16kstep 1 generates keys that it uses to sign the packages01:17
doug16kthis makes it difficult to "infect" deb files with malicious modifications01:18
droid3this shit doesnt work i have https://github.com/myusername/testdeb01:19
droid3and in the software center app i am on others and adding a url it all greyed out to add this url wtf01:20
droid3so i made the github webpage and uploaded the deb wtf01:29
droid3how can you enter the apt line if the fuck add source button is greyed out01:29
droid3do i need more then the .deb file up there ???01:30
droid3can anybody give me way to do it without all the gpg bullshit stuff01:31
droid3i mean you should people to easily create a github webpage or new repo with a github webpage and upload the .deb file to the main/root directory of it01:31

N3bulaKI am cherry picking some apps to be migrated to fresh installation on SSD03:01
N3bulaKsome apps just work by copying the folders over03:01
N3bulaKbut others won't :S03:01
N3bulaKwondering if someone can put me in the right direction please?03:03
signofzetaNot sure, N3bulaK.  Are they snaps, or installed via apt/apt-get?03:07
N3bulaKsome are snaps03:10
N3bulaKlike Bluemail for example03:10
signofzetawell, all my snaps are stored in ~/snap.  Perhaps you can just move that over.  I'm no snap expert, sadly.  Everything else tends to save everything in a dot-folder in ~.03:11
N3bulaKWhen I try to copy Bluemail folder, the app won't run but if I delete the copied folder then it would open :S03:12
R13oseAny thoughts on my question?03:12
signofzetaR13ose: I just got back to my keyboard. Can you repeat?03:13
R13oseCan I ask about which email provider to go with?03:13
signofzetaI run my own in an Amazon VM.  What are you looking for in an email provider?  Do you want to run your own, or go with someone?03:14
R13oseI don't want to run my own.  I want something similar to riseup.net if I can't figure out a way  to get one of them.03:16
signofzetai don't have a Riseup invite, either. how about Protonmail, Tutanota, StartMail, or one of the other post-Snowden ones?03:17
R13oseWhich is the best alternative to riseup?03:18
signofzetaRiseup is just an IMAP/SMTP service. they offer other services besides email, but if email is all you want, perhaps Startmail is the closest.  It's run by the same guys who run the Startpage search engine.03:19
R13oseOh Startmail is not free :(03:21
signofzetano, it's not, sorry.  they have to make money somehow.  Look into Protonmail.  I hear good things about it.03:21
R13oseHow do I keep email synced between mobile and desktop if I use an email provider that has little space?03:25
signofzetathat's the downside of IMAP, unfortunately. when I was on Windows, I archived my old email into an app called MailStore Home.  you'd have to do something similar, even if it's copying things into (let's say, Thunderbird's) offline folders.03:26
signofzetai still have to get my emails out of that local store.03:27
R13oseI need to think about what to do03:30
signofzetayeah, the only "right" solution is Gmail, but then you're at Google's mercy, which is a deal-breaker for many.03:30

gxtHello, I'm inexperienced with Ubuntu but familiar with other distributions, so a friend of me turned to me for help. His /boot was full, so he started deleting files in there and his computer won't boot now. Is booting from a live system and chrooting a viable way of fixing this?08:48
cxlHi, I have a systemd question. If I want to enable a unit for a user, can I `systemctl --user enable myunit.timer` without that user being logged it? It only creates symlinks afaik, right? Will it then be started whenever the user logs in or will the user also need to run `systemctl --user start myunit.timer`?08:54
gxtcxl: From the man page of systemctl: "--user  Talk to the service manager of the calling user, rather than the service manager of the system." So you have to use for example `sudo -U`08:57
cxlgxt: yes that's the problem, it doesn't work well with ansible. So I was thinking maybe I could manually copy the timer and service files to that user's directory, and then add the symlink myself to timers.target.wants but I don't know if that's enough so that when the user logs in, the timers are enabled too or not.09:01
gxtI've researched a bit and I'll try to talk my friend through decrypting with `cryptsetup open --type luks`, then `mount`ing both / and /boot inside of it, then `dpkg -V --instdir=/mnt` to check which required files got deleted.09:32
gxtOr actually just `chroot /mnt` first, as apt doesn't seem to have an option to act on an alternative path. So `chroot /mnt`, then `dpkg -V`, `apt autoremove` and `apt install …` the packages again that dpkg found in the prior step.09:35

KurozenI want to install what seems like a PPA with Muon Package Manager, because I started off with it and never used command line apt ever so I don't want to spred my installs between package managers too mach if possible10:11
KurozenNode JS provides this line which I have no idea what it does: curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_14.x | sudo -E bash -10:11
KurozenWhich apparently later figured it may be setting up a PPA with APT ?10:12
EriC^^Kurozen: it downloads something and runs feeds it to bash with sudo10:12
EriC^^Kurozen: if you download  curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_14.x  and then open it with gedit it should show you what it does10:12
KurozenAnd to figure out what it actually runs I would need to check that Url ?10:12
EriC^^Kurozen: yeah10:13
EriC^^Kurozen: why not stick with the ubuntu repos? easier and more secure10:13
Kurozennodejs 10.x is way too old10:13

Kurozenperhaps -way but it's old10:14
Kurozen14.x is the current LTS, wit 15 current10:14
KurozenIt is apparently the official PPA for NODE.JS, however I'm still a bit fresh to linux and I don't know the terminology of groovy, focal, bionic, buster etc10:15

KurozenI found this tho, but it's not giving me the "full APT line" that Muon Package Manager wants https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/nodejs_14.x10:15
EriC^^Kurozen: focal is the latest LTS of ubuntu, 20.0410:15
KurozenSorry not Muon, but Software Sources (opened throuhg Muon)10:16
EriC^^Kurozen: that link has instructions to add a ppa to the apt system10:16
KurozenI'll show up in the Software Sources GUI if I do it thorugh apt in Terminal ?10:16
EriC^^yeah i think so10:17
KurozenSo basically for Muon to work with it.10:17
EriC^^if anything, running sudo apt-get install nodejs should install the newest version, which would be the ppa one after adding it10:17
EriC^^you have to run sudo apt-get update to add it to the list of available packages after running the 'echo' line10:17
EriC^^then it should be in the system10:17
KurozenI already have one PPA for Git, but I added the PPA line directly, I didn't had to do any "curl or sh" or gpg key commands in that case10:18
EriC^^yeah, if you want to see currently which nodejs it will pull, do 'apt-cache policy nodejs' it will show the candidate version10:19
KurozenIt may have been done automatically, but I'd preferrably do it one way (in this case through the gui)10:20

KurozenWhat in the hell11:24
KurozenArk is broken, BS11:24
spectrezhThe switch does not turn up for adoption anywhere.. at one point I saw it turned up on the network with the regular unifi .. But my unifi is not on the 192.168.1.x network..11:24
KurozenExtracts a directory tree throwing out all files in same folder11:24
spectrezhWhen I have done this in the past I have SSH in to the switch.. But cant do that now..11:24
OceanGaoEm...Em...I've never seen problems like this... What's more, I'm only using the command line of ubuntu...11:29

spectrezhOk But quickly then11:45
spectrezhI have a pfsense router. there I have set up different VLANs11:45
spectrezhI created a "default" LAN there for 192.168.0.x network and I notice they get picke dup now as and 101 in my DHCP server11:46
spectrezhthe flex mini switches11:46
spectrezhBut they are not availible for adoption in my controller.. obviously.. the controler is on 192.168.100.x network..11:46
spectrezhI dont know how, without SSH (missing on these flex minis) to get them to adopt to the controller..11:46
OceanGaoSo do I...I've never used a pfsense router before...11:48
spectrezhok so you think this is not anything that can be fixed on the unifi side.. but rather the router side .. ?11:48
OceanGaoI don't know much about these... So I'm just guessing where you can fix it...11:51
OceanGaoYou may have to have a look at the official documents, or ask someone else...11:53

So, the new 5.4.0-54.60 shows "no changelog available" and would like to know what changed. Yes, I can avoid to install it, but following kernel versions will implement the same unknown changes, of course.15:19

lionrougeand I tried those drivers from the repo15:39
lionrougesame effect15:39
lionrougethanks for advice15:40
lotuspsychjelionrouge: ok, so do you see your printer getting added in gnome control centre?15:40
lotuspsychjelionrouge: just for some testing you could also try; remove printer from control centre/reboot/journalctl -f/re add printer again and see if you can reproduce those errors15:43
lionrougeyes it's added15:44

lotuspsychjelionrouge: no, i mean proceed with the ubuntu-bug procedure17:08
lionrougelotuspsychje, oh, ok17:08
lotuspsychjelionrouge: looks a bit similar to bug #190630917:20
ubottubug 1906309 in cups (Ubuntu) "printer configuration with ubuntu 20.04 - Epson ET 2750 printer not found" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/190630917:20
conris it possible to login on startup with a Screen Sharing active or does it always have to be physically on the device?17:22
Jazzy_Jconr, could you give a little more information?  Are you trying to build a thin client?17:28
lotuspsychjelionrouge: are you behind a VPN?17:30
conrJazzy_J: i have ubuntu 20.04 desktop locally at home and have mac devices connecting to it via vnc. would like to restart ubuntu and sign in remotely.17:30
lotuspsychjeconr: be carefull with vnc, the service gets hammered big time17:31
conrlotuspsychje: what do you mean hammered? like spiders/bots?17:32
Jazzy_Jconr: is this all on an internal network?17:32
Jazzy_JVNC makes a lot of calls back and front from the target computer.17:32
Jazzy_JThere are many ways to do this.  However, my mother-in-law just walked it.  X2Go is a potential solution and XDCMP (sp?) is another. X11VNC is what I use.17:35
lotuspsychjeconr: yes, when your vnc port is exposed to the outside it will get scanned and connected17:35
Jazzy_JAnother is to secure all transmissions with ssh and do port forwarding to the local computer.17:36
conri'm not connecting via internet, just local network. devices sit right next to each other but use a vnc window so i only use one keyboard/mouse.17:37
conryes i do ssh tunnels17:38
ace_meshould this work ?  CREATE USER '$site_name@localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '$site_user_password';17:39
conrJazzy_J: i have a vnc client already and love it but doesn't seem vnc server starts until after logging in to  ubuntu.17:43
lionrougelotuspsychje, nope17:44
conrso there's no way to remotely start desktop? it has to be headless?17:44
ace_mehow to separate variable to be able to output only its value and not {} echo "--CREATE MAIN {$site_name}_BLOG DB"; ?17:53
ace_melike a concatenate with _BLOG string ?17:54
tomreynconr: there are VNC server implementations which start with the login manager, and let you login through it graphically via vnc, and others which only start when the desktop manager starts, which then require a local user to login first.17:54

tomreynconr: You seem to be using the second type so far. Jazzy already suggested options for the first type above.17:55
lotuspsychjelionrouge: allright, so if you think its the same bug as posted above, please affect it, if not file a new one with ubuntu-bug17:56
tomreynace_me: is this about bash? then the relevant manual is man bash -> VARIABLE EXPANSION17:56
ace_me${site} found it17:56

Dus10hey folks, with anaconda, one could load a cfg from a floppy during install referencing hd:fd0:/anaconda-ks.cfg... I am trying to automate similarly with Ubuntu 20.04 and it uses subiquity. Anyone know if there is something similar for it? I am trying ds=nocloud;s=file:// but the various things I have tried don't work and the documentation provides no examples for local files18:04
tomreynDus10: /join #ubuntu-server    but more realistically you have a better chance of getting an answer by filing a documentation bug on the subiquity project on github.18:18
Dus10well, I found a workaround18:42
Dus10I didn't realize that Packer establishes an HTTP server for this very purpose18:42
Dus10so I am switching to `ds=nocloud-net;s=http=//{{ .HTTPIP }}:{{ .HTTPPort }}/`18:43
Dus1020.04.1 didn't work well, so I am trying now with 20.1018:44
mozzarellahelp me18:47
mozzarellawhy can I never use my printer19:46
rjwiiiummmm ... can you be a little more specific?19:47
mozzarellaI send a print job, it says "pending" in the print queue, but my printer doesn't print anything19:48
robertparkerxI want to upgrade to 20.04. I was told to remove||move ppa source list. My provider also has a source list there. Is it safe to remove all of them from sources.d (cannot remember path)19:51
tomreynrobertparkerx: if your hosting provider just mirrors ubuntu apt archives, it's fine to keep using those for your current ubuntu release, no need to remove those. that's not what 'third party repositories' would be considered (even though it may not be official mirrors).19:56
robertparkerxtomreyn it's hetzner19:57
tomreynunrelated to these repository mirrors: just removing third party apt sources does not put you in a situation that's safe for a release upgrade, though19:58
robertparkerxI am concerned about if I upgrade and leave the lists there. I was told to remove ppa but I don't recognize the hetzner list either.19:58
robertparkerxWell shucks19:58
robertparkerxWhat steps do I need to do if I remove them all?19:59
tomreynif there is textual content on your computer you'd like to get feedback on (where ubuntu support related), posting it to a pastebin and posting the pastebin link here would be the best approach.19:59
ubottuTo disable a PPA from your sources and revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages, install ppa-purge and use the command: « sudo ppa-purge ppa:<repository-name>/<subdirectory> » – For more information, see http://www.webupd8.org/2009/12/remove-ppa-repositories-via-command.html19:59
tomreynthis tool does both: "disable a PPA from your sources" AND "revert your packages back to default Ubuntu packages"20:00
tomreynthat's what you probably want to prepare for a release upgrade20:00
robertparkerxI see20:01
tomreynonce you're done with ppa-purge, review the remaining repositories (or have them reviewed here), then install and run apt-forktracer to get a better idea of which remaining third party packages you have installed.20:03
tomreynor rather "untracked packages", not just "third party"20:03

MIFHow would I set up a Tunnel to my server from another server and use port forwarding?21:31
MIFIf that makes cence21:32
MIFI don't have a desktop21:33
MIFand I don't have root on the first server, only the server I want it to connect to21:33
imbezolwhat are you trying to tunnel?21:36
pavlosMIF: https://linuxize.com/post/how-to-setup-ssh-tunneling/21:37
MIFI am tiring to tunnel my irc server21:37
imbezolIRC runs on the one you don't have root on?21:38
MIFthe one I have root on21:38
MIFI need to tunnel from the one I have root on21:38
imbezolso you want to be able to connect to it over an SSH tunnel to the server with root then?21:38
MIFI want to have people be able to access my IRC server21:38
MIFbut my ISP said the there is a issue with inbound public IP21:39
imbezolso you want to create a port on the non-root server that people can connect to which will forward to the other server on the irc port then21:39
imbezolyou need to use -L with ssh to forward a local port then21:40
MIFIt cannot access my other server21:40
imbezolyou can't connect over ssh to the other server?21:41
MIFMY server I am on my network so I can21:41
MIFI have root on that server21:41
MIFMy other server I do Not have root on21:41
imbezolthe server you do not have root on... can it connect to the one you do have root on, with ssh?21:41
imbezolcan you connect with ssh the other way then?21:42
imbezolon your server with root, then you need to use ssh with -R to forward a remote port21:42
MIFwhat would that look like?21:42
MIFthe port on my Non root server is 4538321:43
imbezolsomething like... ssh -N -f -R <remoteserver_ip>:45383:localhost:6667 <user>@<remoteserver>21:45
imbezolassuming your ircd is on 666721:45
imbezolthe remote server would also have to allow this in the sshd_config21:45
imbezolit may not21:46
imbezol"grep -i allowtcpforwarding /etc/ssh/sshd_config" on that server21:46
MIFwhen I run grep -i allowtcpforwarding /etc/ssh/sshd_config I do not get a output21:48
imbezoljust try the forward and see if it works21:48
MIFI did and I get ECONNREFUSED21:49
imbezolwhat gives that error? ssh? or your irc client?21:50
MIFirc client21:50
MIFit tells me to login when I run it21:51
imbezolno errors when you created the tunnel tho?21:51
imbezolcan you see the connection on your ircd?21:51
MIFyes and it does not connect21:51
imbezolyou should be able to just telnet <remoteserver>:4538321:52
imbezolif the tunnel's working, you should see some stuff21:52
MIFOk, let me try that21:53
MIFI had to switch the port because someone grabed it before I could21:53
MIFtelnet: could not resolve Name or service not known21:54
imbezoltry a space instead of a :21:54
MIFtelnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused21:55
imbezolyou could log into the remote server... run "ps fauxw | grep ssh" ... see if you can see your ssh tunnel session there.. or you could run "ss | grep ssh" or "ssh | grep 45383" etc..21:59
imbezoldo some troubleshooting to see if the ssh session is open and the port is open21:59

imbezolyou should see an ssh process with your forwarding parameters22:03
MIFso what do I need to do?22:05
conroerheks: `Have x11vnc start automatically via systemd in any environment (Vivid+)` means Vivid build or greater, like 20.04?22:18
futurileconr: yes. In newer versions of Ubuntu systemd is used to create start-up scripts. In your case you want x11vnc to start every time the server starts22:23
jayjoI'm trying to create a chroot using sbuild for testing building deb packages... my filesystem is ext4, would I benefit from using a btrfs loopback device for these schroots? A lot of resources seem like it benefits builds because each build snapshot can be removed for fresh builds. Can I get those benefits just mounting a raw img file?23:01
blueeaglejayjo: That question would probably be better answered in a deb development forum as it is a quite advanced topic.23:03

ubottuN3bulaK: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) See also !patience23:40
robertparkerxhttps://askubuntu.com/questions/307/how-can-ppas-be-removed -- this says I can just remove it from sources.list.d23:40
N3bulaKopps sorry23:40
N3bulaKis it possible to encrypt a same file/folder with gpg2 rather than creating another output?23:41
blueeagleN3bulaK: You want to overwrite the file you're encrypting while you're encrypting it or do you want to write the output to a file, delete the original and then rename the output to the same name as the source file?23:42
N3bulaKoverwrite the file23:43
N3bulaKis that even possible?23:45
blueeagleN3bulaK: My guess is that it would not work, and it would not be advisable because that would leave the original in a broken state if the encryption is terminated before it is complete.23:45
N3bulaKahh make sense23:46
N3bulaKcan we also encrypt the whole folder?23:46
blueeagle!man gpg223:47
blueeagleN3bulaK: The manual does specify a --multifile option23:50
N3bulaKblueeagle: cool thanks23:50
N3bulaKblueeagle: another solution I came across is, convert the folder into tar file and then encrypt it :D23:53
N3bulaKjust wanted to share for the knowledge of others23:54
blueeagleN3bulaK: That would be the preferred way of doing it, but the result is different from your stated objective which was to encrypt all the files in a folder.23:54
