CodeMouse92I have a Thinkpad on 20.04, SSD, RAM, integrated Intel graphics (yada yada), that was perfectly fast until two days ago...02:54
CodeMouse92Then, after some long-pending kernel updates (few weeks?), it's extraordinarily slow.02:55

lusrxcan i install .deb programs using software center in ubuntu 20.04?09:31
zetherooI did a fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04 alongside Windows on my Thinkpad P14s, and after installation rebooted into Grub and then into Ubuntu - all good. Then I rebooted again ... into Grub .. and then into Windows - all good as well. Then I rebooted again ... no grub ... no Ubuntu ... just boots straight into Windows :(09:33
zetherooI suspect this has something to do with Secure Boot not being setup in Ubuntu  - problem there is that in order for Secure Boot to be setup during Ubuntu installation the option to install Third Party software has to be enabled - but if that option is enabled the installation crashes at the end (known bug). :/09:35
zetherooSo, the question is ... how to get Secure Boot setup on Ubuntu after installation?09:35
Habbiezetheroo, if secure boot was the issue, i would expect it to work zero times, not until you boot windows once09:36
Habbiezetheroo, when you ran windows, did you perhaps run any lenovo firmware updates?09:36
zetheroo Habbie: nope, no updates, nothing09:36
zetheroocould it be something with UEFI then?09:37
Habbiei always lose my (debian) grub when i run lenovo firmware updates09:37
Habbiezetheroo, i don't know - these were the two things i knew09:37
zetherooThe odd thing is that my colleague has a X1 Yoga Gen 5 and he enabled Third Party software and setup Secure Boot on install ... and all good09:38
zetherooBut for me the Third Party option causes the installer to crash09:38
zetheroomy colleague is also dual booting with Windows and it's working fine09:39
zetherooOk, I got into the Lenovo Boot menu and saw that there is a boot entry named 'ubuntu' ... selecting that brought up grub and I could boot into Ubuntu09:43
zetheroorebooting from Ubuntu then boots straight into Windows again ... so it seems that the Boot order needs to be sorted out09:44
Guest20why the port numbers are always less than 65K?09:44
Guest20what is the reason?09:44
HabbieGuest20, a choice made 40 years ago09:49
geirhaThe choice being to use a 16-bit unsigned int to store port numbers09:51
Guest20geirha why is that?09:51
geirha*shrug* Because it seemed like a good idea at the time?09:52
zetherooHabbie: After selecting 'ubuntu' as the first boot option in the BIOS it is now booting to Grub every time.09:53
Habbiezetheroo, ah! so something about UEFI indeed!09:53
Habbiezetheroo, i should see if that fixes my 'firmware update' problem too :)09:54
geirhaGuest20: Might as well also ask why a 32-bit integer was chosen to store time (seconds since epoch)09:56
zetherooHow important is it to have Secure Boot setup in Ubuntu?09:56
tomreynit is important if it is important to you, otherwise not.10:00
zetheroo tomreyn: ok, was just wondering if it would stop anything from working - hardware or software10:02
tomreynzetheroo: no, it's a security feature. if you don't need it, just ignore it.10:12

BlueEagle[twisti]: I have had little trouble running Ubuntu server on my home system, but that is only two servers. However there are other distros that are more focused on stability than Ubuntu. It is a trade-off between how fast you need new features and how much down time costs.10:54
rk4jakobbg: user is it running as?10:54
rk4jakobbg: erm, what user* :)10:55
BlueEagle[twisti]: If you're in a position where you can clone a system to a cold system, perform any upgrades and then hot-swap into production then most distros will be fine. If that is not an option then I would aim for something that focuses primarily on server setup. Ubuntus main focus is on desktop experience imo.10:55

littlepythonHabbie what are the other ways?10:59
BlueEaglelittlepython: Are you looking for the shell pipe operator | perhaps?10:59
littlepythonBlueEagle yes10:59
BlueEaglelittlepython: ie. `ps aux |grep bash` will pipe the output of ps to grep. pipe() is a C function call found in the unistd library. I guess it would depend on the shell you use if | calls pipe() or not.11:01

Joaolvcm[m]hi there, i've bought a 3440x1440 144hz display, but on my linux laptop i only 3440x1440 at 50hz, i've eard it may be a HDMI version limitation, is there anything on linux i can do? at least to check if it's a laptop problem, drivers or cable11:52
TJ-Joaolvcm[m]: start with "xrandr -q" and look at the refresh rates advertised for that resolution12:00
TJ-Joaolvcm[m]: so far as I know 144Hz requires HDMI v1.2 or greater, including the cable12:01
TJ-Joaolvcm[m]: actually, for 3440x1440@144 you might need HDMI v2.112:03
Joaolvcm[m]i wanted atleast 60, do you know if hdmi2.0 does it? the monitor has DP(i don't have on the laptop), and HDMI2.0, but i'm getting '3440x1440     50.00*+' on xrandr.. is there anyway to know if the problem is the cable or the laptop?12:06
TJ-Joaolvcm[m]: if that is all that is being advertised by the monitor (that comes from its EDID) then I'd suspect the monitor's HDMI port is limited - probably only does 144 on DisplayPort12:07
Joaolvcm[m]just tested in another laptop and i get 100hz, is there anything i could try in linux that may be limiting to 50hz (drivers/composer or something), or is just the laptop that probably does not have HDM2?12:14

BlueEagleDeano59: You were asked which version of Ubuntu you used, and I cannot see that you answered it.14:13
BlueEaglejdelers: It seems that the system is not sure which python to use, and that it circles around in a loop of symlinks. Can you check which version of python is installed and if that is what terminator needs/expects?14:15
wedrI have heard there will be a Linux distribution change for Ubuntu, much like how Fedora is changing from RHEL > Fedora > CentOS to be Fedora > CentOS > RHEL in terms of which OS is the upstream of another. Would Ubuntu be done similarly?14:21

SlartibartCan anyone tell me what those whoopsie-upload processes are about, and why they're eating away at my processor time? I've tried killing the processes, stopping the whoopsie service,   disabling sending error reports in system settings.. No matter what, those processes respawn. If they'd lie dormant then I probably wouldn't mind, but they don't..15:04
BlueEagleSlartibart: https://askubuntu.com/questions/135540/what-is-the-whoopsie-process-and-how-can-i-remove-it15:08
BlueEagleSlartibart: It's the crash reporting tool.15:08
BlueEagleSlartibart: Just change the report_crashes parameter to false in the /etc/default/whoopsie file. Then bid farewell to whoopsie with sudo service whoopsie stop.15:09
SlartibartBlueEagle: That's the thing, the service keeps running even if I try "sudo service whoopsie stop" or "sudo systemctl stop whoopsie". (There's no /etc/default/whoopsie file on this computer) If I run "sudo ps -A | grep whoopsie" I get one whoopsie process that seems stable(same pid), but also one whoopsie-upload process, and that keeps getting a new pid every few seconds.15:17

MibixI installed virtualbox via the software GUI and i did the config to enable autostart but am getting vboxautostart-service.service not found when i try to restart the service15:23
overlord_tmMibix, maybe you need to enable unit file first, systemctl enable vboxautostart-service.service?15:25
ikoniaconfig enable autostart15:25
MibixFailed to enable unit: Unit file vboxautostart-service.service does not exist.15:26
overlord_tmMibix, probably unit file was not shipped with your installer or it was placed in wrong place. I would search the system first, to see if file exists. It should be named vboxautostart-service.service15:30
ikoniaMibix: which package from where did you install15:32
Mibixi installed it from the gui in ubuntu15:34
Mibixill uninstall and use theirs15:34

farhanhi all. I am sorta new to snaps. what is the benefits of using a snap? Is it basically running in an isolated container?15:39
mefistofelesfarhan: not really a container but more like an independent file tree, as far as I understand15:40
mefistofelessomething like a chroot or a virtualenv (if you are familiar with python venvs)15:40
farhani am...interesting15:40

WhatTheDuckso I compile a program and get it running, is there an easy way to get an icon of it on the app menu or do I have to do that manually?15:57
EriC^^WhatTheDuck: you have to manually create a .desktop file for it15:58
WhatTheDuckdarn, thanks though15:58
EriC^^no problem, it's easy enough, just copy another .desktop from /usr/share/applications and edit the icon/name/exec lines15:59
EriC^^WhatTheDuck: ^15:59
WhatTheDuckI'm still pretty new to linux, using lubuntu 1816:00
LordChaosI've never seen df ouput like here: https://youtu.be/teJnX0NK8MI?t=692 and I can't seem to reproduce it. Is it an alias or something?16:00
EriC^^WhatTheDuck: basically you want to create a file, myapp.desktop and put this into it https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/yRwxMjc6P4/16:02
EriC^^then make the .desktop file executable with chmod +x16:03
EriC^^WhatTheDuck: ah, also you can put the file in ~/.local/share/applications that's where your person ones go16:03
WhatTheDuckthat doesn't seem too hard, thanks!16:04
EriC^^WhatTheDuck: no problem16:04
N3bulaKI have transferred a snap from another Ubuntu machine which has a different username, how can I change it to my username settings?16:06
N3bulaKI have literally copied the whole folder of that snap16:07
leftyfbN3bulaK: that's not how snaps works. Just install the snap on the other machine16:07
N3bulaKleftyfb: I have installed the snap, but would like to keep the same config16:07
leftyfbN3bulaK: then copy just the config16:07
ograN3bulaK, https://snapcraft.io/docs/snapshots16:08
leftyfbN3bulaK: at this point you should remove/purge the snap from the target machine and reinstall it16:08
ogratake a snapshot on the old host ...16:08
ograthen transfer it to the new one ...16:08
ogra(though i'm not 100% sure if/how that deals with changed user names)16:09
ograbtw, there is also the #snappy channel specifically for snap related questions16:09
ogra(since snap is distro agnstic)16:09
leftyfbogra: I'm not so sure that would work correctly. That takes a snapshot of everything, the app and configs. They should just install the app as normal and copy over the configs16:10
ogradepends if the config is handled internally or via "snap set" commands ... etc16:11
ograthe guys in #snappy can surely give a recommendation though ...16:11
leftyfbogra: N3bulaK: for instance, the Slack snap gets installed to ~/snap/slack. None of that should be touched. The configs(in Gnome/Ubuntu) are in ~/.config/Slack. Those are what should be copied over16:11
ograslack is an awful example since it is a classic snap16:12
N3bulaKleftyfb: oh16:12
ograclassic snaps are essentially a hack of the snap ecosystem16:12
N3bulaKogra: thanks16:12
leftyfbN3bulaK: what app are you trying to copy over?16:12
N3bulaKleftyfb: bluemail16:14
N3bulaKtried copying just the config but that doesn't work :(16:14
ograif the user name and the UID are the same, copying the snapshot around and just restoring it should work ...16:16
N3bulaKthey are different16:17
N3bulaK:( I forgot to keep the same username16:17
N3bulaKhence all of this mess :S16:17
ograwell, ask in #snappy then ... or on https://forum.snapcraft.io16:17
ograthe snapd devs are around in both16:18
ograand probably have another idea16:18

pinusc1Hello! I'm having some trouble dealing with my snap install of LXD20:07
pinusc1I set the server up a couple weeks ago and it all worked; now I rebooted and... lxd won't start anymore. I think the issue is related to snap20:08
pinusc1That's because lxd is configured to use storage pools in /data/lxd (which is a btrfs drive), but snap doesn't mount them at /var/lib/snapd/hostfs/data/lxd20:10

ogradoubleclick the ttf file in the filemanager ... that gets you a preview ... at the top of the window you find an "install" button tha should simply do the right thing20:34

kenwoodfox_Hey ubuntu, ive been working on a project for my robotics team. I've gotten everything good so far, got ubuntu all setup with samba and it seems to work but im having trouble with srv records, i know its not really an ubuntu specific thing but, i was wondering if anybody else has done something similar? maybe you have some pointers or documentation i could look at,21:07
sarnoldkenwoodfox_: you're kinda all over the place there :) one message about robots, samba, and srv records, but no suggestion of which of the dozen dns servers you're using, what you've done to add your srv records, what error messages you get, or messages from dig.. :)21:12
kenwoodfox_Sorry sarnold, im using my own dns server on a freebsd box atm, with a custom dns entry for our .lan, im pretty new to ad in general. i thought if frcxxx.lan resolved to the server, it would be ok21:13
kenwoodfox_aparently i also need some sort of srv record, :/ but idk how to do that on freebsd, in the guide i was reading21:14
kenwoodfox_it seems like they used another ubuntu box as a dns server21:14
leftyfb!freebsd | kenwoodfox_21:14
leftyfblooks like you also added in "ad" for good measure21:14
kenwoodfox_and that makes sense, but, idk how to do that on ubuntu, or, if thats actually what they did21:14
sarnoldkenwoodfox_: oh wow, you wrote your own DNS server? that's crazy21:14
kenwoodfox_sarnold: sorry..21:14
sarnoldkenwoodfox_: dns is *so* complex, it's way better to run a pre-written dns server, at least until you've gotten everything else working21:14
kenwoodfox_right, im sure i can do that on ubuntu right?21:15
leftyfbkenwoodfox_: we cannot support a custom DNS server application on feebsd21:15
kenwoodfox_leftyfb: ok?21:15
pinusckenwoodfox_: did you actually write your own dns server, or did you mean you're running an existing dns server on your own machine?21:16
kenwoodfox_sarnold: have you ever done something similar? is that the way to go? the srv records themselves that im missing seem to be documented, i just want to hear from people who may have done something similar21:16
kenwoodfox_im running a dns server on my own machine, its the dns server/resolver for the whole net21:16
leftyfbkenwoodfox_: if you want to run your own DNS server on Ubuntu running the popular bind9 package, then follow this: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-bind-as-a-private-network-dns-server-on-ubuntu-18-0421:16
kenwoodfox_leftyfb: thanks~21:16
sarnoldkenwoodfox_: there's something like four to six reasonable dns server packages..21:16
kenwoodfox_sarnold: ok, but. I really wanna know if thats the way other people have been doing it21:17
kenwoodfox_i figured id be able to find dns server packages for ubuntu21:17
kenwoodfox_just i wanna know what has been done before21:17
leftyfbkenwoodfox_: it's all been done before. Pick one and see if it works for you. Feel free to ask opinions in #ubuntu-offtopic21:17
kenwoodfox_leftyfb: ok? ill ask in there again, that sounds fine21:18
sarnoldkenwoodfox_: hehe, yeah, srv records are two decades old :) they're pretty common at this point..21:18
kenwoodfox_I just want to hear about what other people did in the past :c21:18
kenwoodfox_i know rigth? i should be able to find lots of testimonies :c21:19
kenwoodfox_its not like its new tech21:19
pinusckenwoodfox_: they are sort of niche compared to other records21:19
leftyfbkenwoodfox_: follow the tutorial I gave you21:19
kenwoodfox_pinusc: ok21:19
kenwoodfox_leftyfb: that dosent help me actually know what srv records are important21:19
kenwoodfox_but, ok21:19
leftyfbkenwoodfox_: are you looking for "srv records" or to run your own local DNS server?21:20
kenwoodfox_Im looking for testimonies of people who did something similar to what im doing in the past leftyfb21:20
kenwoodfox_what dns server they prefered, what srv records they configured21:21
kenwoodfox_what version of ubuntu worked for them21:21
leftyfbkenwoodfox_: ok, then you're taking a survey. This is a support channel to help people with Ubuntu.21:21
pinuscWell, it would help to know exactly what the problem you're trying to solve is21:21
kenwoodfox_its ahove pinusc21:21
kenwoodfox_leftyfb: ok, thank you. Ill hop over to ##ubuntu then?21:21
leftyfbkenwoodfox_: I would suggest #ubuntu-offtopic21:21

tgp1994Hi everyone. I upgraded my ubuntu server distro from 18.04 to 20.04 LTS, and at some point along the way it seems my terminal has lost its scrollback buffer (Shift+PageUp). Does anyone know how I can get it back?22:22
matsamantgp1994: right-click, preferences?22:26
tgp1994matsaman: Sorry should have mentioned, I'm using server as CLI-only so now GUI.22:27
tgp1994*no GUI22:27
matsamantgp1994: from a fresh bootup it's like this?22:30
matsamantgp1994: you login at the prompt and then it's like this?22:31
tgp1994matsaman: Right, as far as I can tell, it's been like this after I rebooted from the upgrade.22:31
matsamancan't say I've ever had that not work22:32
matsamanyou could probably just ask #linux22:32
matsamanor #ubuntu-server22:32
tgp1994matsaman: I know, I'm scratching my head too! Apparently you can change it with a kerenel argument but that seems absurd22:32
matsamanif it's a common issue, the latter might be great, otherwise the former22:32
tgp1994matsaman: Thank you for the tips, I'll check out the channels.22:32
matsamanhrmm, I mean your kernel could've changed22:32
matsamanbut it's probably configurable in userland22:33
matsamantgp1994: are you using anything like22:33
matsamantgp1994: a big graphical framebuffer?22:33
matsamanis your text enormous or small?22:33
matsamanif it's small there could be various higher level graphics things at play22:33
matsamanif it's enormous there should be nothing to do with graphics involved with the issue22:33
matsamantgp1994: or put another way: if you ssh in is the behavior different from logging in directly to the system?22:34
tgp1994matsaman: Just at a glance I have VGA set to 792 if that's what you mean, don't think that is affecting it tho? I'm accessing my terminal through hyper-v but that has been a constant as well. Lemme try ssh22:35
matsamanif you can configure the size of your display, then certain graphical things are at play22:35
matsamannever heard of it affecting pgup, but it's more than is strictly required to use a console22:36
matsamanif you ssh and the problem is also present, then you can rule out graphics22:36
tgp1994matsaman: I guess I'm not sure how to tell... it seems like my SSH client is using its own scrollback buffer.22:37

matsamancan you say what for?22:45
MIFrevirce ssh tunnel python scriot22:45
matsamanso there're two approaches22:46
matsamanone is using init/services (systemd in the case of Ubuntu)22:46
MIFhow would I do that22:46
matsamanthe other would be a "dumb" script22:46
MIFwhat is a "dumb" script?22:47
matsamantuts abound: https://gist.github.com/drmalex07/c0f9304deea566842490 (via: http://google.com/?q=systemd+how+to+service+tunnel)22:47
matsamana "dumb" script is just a script, run from someplace that isn't going to easily disappear (like a GNU screen session)22:47
matsamanwhile true; do check_if_thing_is_running || run_thing; sleep 1m; done22:48
MIFthanks :)22:49
matsamanthe advantage is that people make simple scripts and use screen all day long, so it's one fewer thing to learn about (init system/systemd)22:50
matsamanit's just more nuts-and-bolts22:50
MIFI get Job for tunnel.service failed because of unavailable resources or another system error.22:51
MIFI have a script the has all of the info22:52
MIFhow do I just call the script?22:52
matsamancould ask #systemd or #linux, I'm afraid I've never used systemd22:54
MIFI think I got it22:55
epicmetalDoes Ubuntu support installing the system to boot from either BIOS/MBR or UEFI/GPT?23:03
ubottuUEFI is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. It is meant as a replacement for the BIOS. For information on how to set up and install Ubuntu and its derivatives on UEFI machines please read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI23:03
epicmetaloerheks, I don't mean converting, I mean dynamically booting correctly from any system type, e.g. for a portable install onto USB.23:04
epicmetale.g. like the installer presumably does23:05
epicmetalBut for an installed system onto USB23:05
oerheksyes, it does. but booting an installed system from usb might require manual operation, e.g. selecting on startup.23:06
jeremy31epicmetal: It is possible but you might need to use non-GPT partitioning for it to work on anything23:06
jeremy31I have only done it on GPT and it won't boot at all on an old Toshiba but works on everything else I have23:08
