Zythyrjeremy31 So is the expectation that I should alwasy boot into Ubunutu's grub bootloader which also gives me the option for Windows? So even if I want WIndows as a the default, I should boot into grub first? Also funny in BIOS i  see the option to re-order the options (windows or ubuntu efi) however it won't let me press enter to save the settigns after reordering00:01
gebbionepavlos, unfortunately made no difference00:01
jeremy31Zythyr: try the F10 if I remember correctly to change the order00:01
jayjo-when using a 3rd party apt repository, usually i would download the key and pipe it to apt-key add, which has been deprecated. Some other keys are now just placing their keys under /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d, which seems better than using /etc/apt/trusted.gpg. But should I be adding them somewhere else and using [signed-by=...] in sources.list?00:02
jeremy31Zythyr: for some reason HP will allow ubuntu to be added to the EFI but won't allow it to alter the EFI bootloader order00:02
OceanGaojayjo- I don't know which is the best, but I'm using sorces.list to manage those 3rd party apt repos.00:04
Zythyrjeremy31 That worked! Got luckly u have HP expereince. I do have a follow up question though00:06
jayjo-ok, thanks, I'm going to remove the keys from the trusted keyring then and list them there00:08
ZythyrWhen installing Ubuntu after installing Windows10, where am I suppose to install the Ubuntu bootloader? Win10 will be my primary default OS. Should I install Ubuntu bootloader on the root device (ex: /dev/sda) or on the partition Ubuntu is isntalled on (ex: /dev/sda5) or on the efi partition which contains the Windows bootmanager (ex: /dev/sda1)? I watched youtube tutorials but go confllicting00:08
jeremy31Zythyr: Boot loader should get installed to a drive like /dev/sda and not a partition like /dev/sda*00:10
jeremy31Grub install will figure it out00:10
jeremy31Zythyr: the only issue will happen if the Ubuntu ISO is booted in BIOS when Windows in installed in UEFI or the other way around00:11

Zythyrjeremy31 If I want Ubuntu to show up in Windows 10 bootmanger menu, do I have to manually add Ubuntu using tools like EasyBCD? I am guessing Ubuntu won't automatically do it after installation???00:15
jeremy31Zythyr: I have never been able to add Ubuntu too Win 10 boot manager menu00:16
jeremy31Might be because I didn't try enough00:17

alazyI read that a regression that makes my system unusable should be fixed by upgrading my gpu driver from nvidia 450 packaged with ubuntu to nvidia 455+ from their website. Anything I should know/do before removing the apt-installed version and trying to install it on my own to make it go smoothly?01:13
Bashing-omalazy: Nvidia says do not do that - we have a trusted PPA that might support your release with the 455 version driver. What release are you on and what is the card ?01:16
Bashing-omalazy: Nvidia: "Note that many Linux distributions provide their own packages of the NVIDIA Linux Graphics Driver in the distribution's native package management format. This may interact better with the rest of your distribution's framework, and you may want to use this rather than NVIDIA's official package." :D01:17

sammygmaybe my problem is the rufus tool then? i wrote ubuntu-20.10-desktop-amd64.iso (desktop) to a usb stick using rufus and legacy bios was not an option (for either mbr or gpt) and i can't boot it now in csm mode (expected given the lack of legacy option in rufus) on my b550 motherboard09:37
ThinkT510sammyg: you could dd the iso to the usb instead09:39

sammygah good point! will try that next.09:40
ThinkT510make sure you pick the right device label, you don't want to pick the wrong one with dd09:41
sammygi do get to see the "kingston bla bla" in the boot list (f8), but when i select it it gets skipped past and another os boots. and if i power off and disconnect all disks and try again i get to see the problem: "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key".09:42
EriC^^sammyg: i'd try to dd the iso as suggested09:46
sammygwriting anew in dd mode: https://imgur.com/a/6iRQKkm09:49
sammygi still can't change "target system" and write mode (dd) does not depend on this parameter.09:51
EriC^^sammyg: dd copies the iso as-is, by default it'll support both booting modes09:52
sammygi came across this earlier, seems to be the same problem (unless i'm wrong 20.10 expects efi system): https://askubuntu.com/questions/1286977/ubuntu-20-10-installer-thinks-legacy-system-uses-efi-booting09:53

gordonjcpin this context15:33
gordonjcpI can't say I've found swap to be particularly necessary, since I switched away from linux 2.415:33
jeremy31you have?15:36
dustgordonjcp, 8gb and more ram is no option... so swap is needed and i want the double amount of ram which gives 16gb15:36
gordonjcpif 8GB is not enough and you want 8GB of swap too, you wil have incredibly disappointing performance15:37
gordonjcpdust: maybe if you have an SSD it'll mitigate it a bit but anything so old it can only take 8GB RAM will have dialup-speed SATA15:38

gordonjcpdust: you could stop your existing swap, create a new partition, and then set that up as swap15:40

dustfollowed this but it didnt work... thats the reason i ask here https://opensource.com/article/18/9/swap-space-linux-systems15:41

gordonjcpdust: so I guess you have no free space left in your volume set15:52
vlmdust, im not sure,but maybe you need to add a disk to you vg,seems all is allocated to yout two existing lvs15:52
gordonjcpdust: you'll either need to make another LV smaller or fit another disk15:53
gordonjcpdust: making an existing LV smaller is probably going to give you an exciting afternoon15:53
dustso basically to use gparted and reduce disc size to get it free for swap15:53
gordonjcpdust: I would strongly recommend backing up everything you care about and making a bootable install stick15:53
gordonjcpdust: no, you'll need to reduce a logical volume to free up space in LVM15:54
dustso basically is a new install...15:54
gordonjcpdust: that would be safest and easiest tbh15:54
dustk ll try that15:54
dustgordonjcp, thx for infos and help15:54
gordonjcpdust: you can try resizing your other logical volume but you'll need to unmount it, resize it, and fsck it15:55
gordonjcpdust: if that's the only disk in your machine then I'm guessing that you can't just unmount the other LV15:55
gordonjcpso you're going to need a bootable USB stick anyway15:55

gordonjcpdust: I let $teenager use it so she could experience what computers were like in the (pre 2010) olden days15:58
dustnormally the 8gb is enough but it can be that in some rare situations more is needed and so a good sized swap is important to not crash programs while some important work is done and lost...15:58
gordonjcpdust: as long as it's nothing time-sensitive15:58

conrdoes anybody know how to automate  stopping or killing a systemd service after logging in over gdm3?16:11
conrstartup applications was my first thought but i cant run it as root in my user account without getting a password prompt.16:16
gordonjcpconr: for the avoidance of the XY problem, what are you trying to do?16:17
lotuspsychjeconr: try stacer for managing systemd services a GUI way easy16:17
conrgordonjcp: i have x11vnc startup on boot so i can vnc to my ubuntu box and login to my account. but since gdm3, x11vnc goes to a black screen so a hack is to start another session and i was just going to use vino but wanted to kill the x11vnc service.16:20
gordonjcpconr: why not just stop x11vnc altogether and use vino?16:20
gordonjcpconr: alternatively, you can look at /etc/sudoers and see how to run specific commands with elevated privileges, possibly without entering a password16:21
conrgordonjcp: i dont think vino starts until user logs in16:21
gordonjcpconr: you can lock it down to just a particular command16:21
gordonjcpwouldn't that mean you log into x11vnc but then kill your connection when vino starts?16:22
conrx11vnc is the only vnc ive got to run on boot.16:22
gordonjcpwhy bother with VNC, why not just do remote X16:22
gordonjcpssh will forward X quite happily16:23
conri dont know remote X. does mac support? plus i like my vnc viewer.16:24
gordonjcpoh, maybe macs don't support it16:24
gordonjcpconr: to be honest I've never really bothered VNCing to Linux machines, kind of don't see the point16:25
atomiss5Hey, i would like to have a rough estimate, if it will affect the speed and stability of my netbook ubuntu (now 18.04.5, uptodate), if i do an release upgrade to 20.04.1. It is an rather old netbook, less than 1 GB Ram and so on.16:25
gordonjcpatomiss5: with that little RAM I'd consider a "lighter" Ubuntu, like xubuntu or similar16:26
lotuspsychjeatomiss5: is it ubuntu desktop or another flavour?16:26
conrgordonjcp: wel i have a use cass cause its my vpn box that i browse ans torrent with. not fun when its headless.16:26
gordonjcpconr: surely it would be easier to just forward stuff through it?16:26
conrgordonjcp: well i have a 1Gb connection so dont want other devices to suffer16:27
atomiss5dang. Gotta phone call. I have to check in back later. Thanks for the answers already16:28
gordonjcpconr: it's worth looking into, I'd say16:28
gordonjcpconr: if you're really up for a bit of fun, look into installing Apache Guacamole on your remote box, which is a web-accessible VNC viewer16:29
conrgordonjcp: is it availabe on boot?16:30
gordonjcpconr: you'd run it as a normal service16:30
gordonjcpconr: effectively you'd run it as a web server, but setting it up is pretty complicated16:30
atomiss5lotuspsychje hmm, it says all normal with lsb_release -a or ubuntu SMP in cat /proc/version16:30
conrgordonjcp: oh i see its like a dumbed down gui16:31
gordonjcpconr: what is?16:31
conrapache guac16:31
conrive setup a lot of webserver in my life16:32
gordonjcpconr: no, it's a full-fat VNC viewer16:32
lotuspsychjeatomiss5: lubuntu 20.04 i tested on an old netbook with 2GB ram running fine, ubuntu-desktop with gnome needs at least 4GB+ reccomended 8GB16:32
gordonjcpconr: you point your browser at it, log in, and VNC to the box you want16:32
atomiss5ok, thank you!16:32
gordonjcpconr: I use it as the front-end to a training system I built for some very very specialised network equipment (which runs Windows XP but that's a whole other can of worms)16:33
lotuspsychjeatomiss5: i would try a lubuntu 20.04 fresh16:33
lotuspsychjeatomiss5: unless your computer is 32bit?16:34
gordonjcplotuspsychje: my lowest-end laptop has a whopping 64MB of RAM :-)16:35
lotuspsychjegordonjcp: wich DE/WM are you on there?16:36
gordonjcplotuspsychje: fvwm2, on a very very hand-tuned NetBSD16:36
gordonjcplotuspsychje: I work with high-frequency radio equipment where you tune it by polishing tiny brass pegs with jeweller's rouge16:37
gordonjcplotuspsychje: one wipe too far can put you 100MHz off frequency16:37
conrgordonjcp: im confused. does gauc dispaly the remote client the browser or do you need a vnc client?16:37
lotuspsychjegordonjcp: lets go to #ubuntu-discuss16:37
gordonjcplotuspsychje: building a kernel for this Thinkpad felt a bit like pulling in one of these TXes16:37
gordonjcplotuspsychje: sorry, thought we were -offtopic :-)16:37
gordonjcpconr: it's a VNC *viewer*16:37
gordonjcpconr: browse to it with the browser of your choice then VNC to whatever you want to run16:38
conrso it connects to like vino over browser?16:38
gordonjcpconr: as I say though setting it up is nontrivial but it's an excellent tool16:38
gordonjcpconr: if you have concerns over privacy I'd strongly recommend looking at using your remote box as a VPN endpoint and tunnelling over it16:39
conrgordonjcp: how does ubuntu 20 desktop look on it?16:39
gordonjcpconr: pretty normal over a fastish connection16:39
gordonjcpconr: I never ever ever use Linux machines remotely with a GUI though16:40
gordonjcpconr: occasionally I have to use RDP or VNC to access Windows machines remotely and it sucks16:40
gordonjcpI don't know why Windows doesn't have a normal cli16:40
conrgordonjcp: actually i didnt say its a box on my home network. haha16:40
LutinI always install new servers with the latest minor ISO but are there reasons not to use/upgrade to the latest minor release ?16:42
conri have a imac and linux desktop on the same desk but want to run a vnc session through my iMac.16:42
conrgordonjcp: thats my actual end goal ^16:43
gordonjcpconr: daft question - does x11vnc work with a monitor plugged into your Linux box?16:44
geosmileIf I have a 80GB drive and a 40GB drive, can i add them both to look like a 120GB drive to the OS? I am really needed to spill over a particular directory on the 80GB drive that is currently using 34G and I want to spill it over to the 40G drive16:44
geosmileSo mainly I need a particular directory to use two drives for storage of its files.16:45
conrgordonjcp: i dont get the plugged in question. but it does work if im logged in to my user account.16:45
TJ-geosmile: using LVM yes; each drive can contribute a Physical Volume (PV) to a single Volume Group, from where space for Logical Volumes (LV) is allocated, and LVs can be extended at will given free space in their parent VG16:46
geosmileTJ-, thanks16:54
rr123on ubuntu 20.04 ctrl+alt+f1 gives me the GUI login screen instead of a text console?17:07
rr123i thought ctrl-alt-f1~f6 are still text console only17:07
lotuspsychje!tty | rr12317:07
ubotturr123: To get to the TTY terminals 3-6, use the keystroke Ctrl + Alt + F3-F6 respectively. Ctrl-Alt-F2 or Ctrl-Alt-F1 will get you back to your graphical login (Ctrl-Alt-F7 on 16.04). To change TTY resolution, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ChangeTTYResolution17:07
rr123so it's different from older ubuntus, fine, ctrl-alt-f1 gave me a new login, while f2 gave me a already-logged-in GUI17:08
rr123so ctrl-alt-f2 is the old F7, what's ctrl+alt+f1 for then17:09

faLUKE hello, is there anyone aware of this? On debian/ubuntu, python3-venv must be installed separately as a package. Before installing it, python3 -m venv did not work. After installing it, it works. Well: I purged the python3-venv package (with apt-get purge) and venv is still present. How can I remove it??19:01
faLUKE--> still installed19:01

Aavar_If I have two existing raid1 arrays. Is it simple to combine them into a raid10 array?21:32
BlueEagleAavar_: Simplest way is to back up all data, create the raid 10 array and restore the data to that. In any case you want to back up your data before re-structuring a raid array in case something goes wrong.21:35
Aavar_BlueEagle: I do have offsite backups so I would rather not use them... I have an existing raid1 array and would like to add two more drives. Is it possible to create a raid10 array with two drives, copy the data from the existing raid1 array and then add the new drives to the raid 10 array?21:38

RexodusDoes anyone know if a awus036ach can do 30dBm? Tried a lot. Country to BO and GY. No luck so far. I specially bought this thing because I heard it could do even 33 dBm. But I'm not so sure anymore... it's stuck to 20 dBm and don't want to move in any direction. Even sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off gives an error: Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not21:50
Rexoduspermitted. Lots of people report this problem but no solution worked for me...21:50
jeremy31Rexodus: That shows as wlan0?21:52
Rexodusjeremy31: Yes21:52
RexodusDrivers are installed and working.21:52
RexodusEven monitor and injection are working.21:53

RexodusJust like mine22:01
RexodusThanks for checking ;)22:02
RexodusI think it is not possible to change that.22:02
jeremy31I wonder if the adapter needs to be down to change power, I can't lower it either, but no errors in terminal22:03
RexodusEven if down, I can't change a thing.22:07
RexodusCountrycode is BO at the moment. So that's working fine too.22:07

jayjowhere should I place the new autoinstall scripts for ubuntu (https://ubuntu.com/server/docs/install/autoinstall-quickstart) the quickstart shows how to use an additional volume, but how would I go about adding the autoinstall file (not preseed) to the iso, or if I'm manually adjusting a usb stick?22:09

jbskihey everyone, long time freebsd user, new to ubuntu. -- i have a new laptop, lenovo e14 thinkpad, running ubuntu 20.04, wifi was working perfectly and all of a sudden the wifi disconnected, couldnt get it to reconnect, rebooted and now it says "no wifi adapter found"22:13
jeremy31Rexodus: I am pretty sure the Atheros has to be DOWN to make changes and will error when trying to set power off22:13
jbskiits hard for me to think its a hardware issue, its a brand new laptop, 2 weeks old22:13
jbskiany ideas?22:13
jeremy31Rexodus: did you try the rtl8812au-dkms from the repos?22:14
RexodusYes, but if I remember correctly, injection is not working. Monitor is though.22:15
jeremy31Rexodus: OK, I know the dkms part is broken too22:15
RexodusI guess we wait for a patch. It is not that important. I'm just irritated if I can't get somthing to work what shoukd work :P22:17
jeremy31Rexodus: I just set mine down and tried the power change and it didn't take, must be the driver as I should be able to use 30db22:18
RexodusThat gives me hope my device isn't locked...22:19
RexodusTrying my atheros now. brb22:19
Rexodusyes, that is the one22:19
jeremy31Likely similar to TP LInk tl wn722n22:20
RexodusIs locked too. Must be a kernel issue.22:23
RexodusBut it gives no error.22:24
RexodusJust doesn't do the job.22:24

RexodusIs on BO22:25
RexodusTried GY also.22:26
RexodusNo luck.22:26
jeremy31Rexodus: atheros devices might have a region code in eeprom that locks them down22:26
RexodusYeah, heard of that before.22:27
RexodusAnd there is no way around that afaik.22:27
RexodusI ordered the AR in the USA. Maybe they locked it for me...22:28
jeremy31US on 2.4 allows 30db22:30
RexodusIn that case I locked it myself. I'll ask the coder of the driver if there is a solution. If you are still here by the time I get an answer, you'll be the first to know.22:32
jeremy31I cant seem to change it on my atheros either22:36
gueriLLaPunKhow do i download something from a site that says "download will start in 5,4,3,2,1" but the url doesn't end in a filename? via terminal22:36

gueriLLaPunKi tried wget -O (url) but it doesnt work and i dont know what to google to find the answer22:37
RazathorngueriLLaPunK: You have to figure out where it's redirecting you to.  Easiest way is to enable developer console in your browser and look at the URLs it tries to send you to22:38
gueriLLaPunKooooh good idea22:38
gueriLLaPunKok i inspect element of the 'download here' and its the same url as before22:40
gueriLLaPunKoh i found it under network22:41
gueriLLaPunKthanks Razathorn22:41
RazathornNP gueriLLaPunK.  Good to hear it worked.  Now, if it doesn't work with WGET you may need to include headers or referrer info and or cookies, depending on what they did.22:44
