samthewildonehave an issue with default user profiles. I made an edit to the "~/.profile" file and when I source the file, it works within current terminal session. When I go for a reboot or reopen another terminal session, it seems that the "~/.profile" edits don't work.02:55
samthewildoneI did the same for the "/etc/profile" file, no luck. I'm just adding " set -o vi " into those files, if that helps.02:56
sarnoldsamthewildone: my first guess is you're starting interactive but not login shells, and hitting "When an interactive shell that is not a login shell is started, bash reads and executes commands from /etc/bash.bashrc and  ~/.bashrc"03:02
sarnoldsamthewildone: my second guess is that if these are interactive login shells, you may be hitting "After reading that file, it looks for ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile, in that order, and reads and  executes commands from the first one that exists and is readable."03:03
samthewildonesarnold, thank you. I edited the /etc/bash.bashrc file and did a hard reboot. Looks good.03:22
sarnoldsamthewildone: excellent :)03:23
sarnoldsamthewildone: I hate the bash rc file mess soooooo much. I understand how we got to this point, but it's just *so* complicated03:24

devilnullhi peeps- as a rule should i use dist-upgrade (because it will take care of source lists and upgrade my system) ;assuming i ran sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade, no need for running of apt autoclean or autoremove?04:47
devilnullits my understanding that apt-get has been depreciated in the way ifconfig has been replaced by ip or logs by journalctrls04:49
devilnullnow apt takes precidence for most end users i assume-can anyone correct me or provide caveats please04:50
Bashing-omdevilnull: Well - dist-upgrade has also been replaced by full-upgrade. In some instances where upgrade is inconsistent - the problem resolver in full-upgrade can be of value.04:51

rahvinHey all, I'm trying to install chromium via a beta PPA for hardware acceleration, but it seems ubuntu insists on useing the snap.  I removed the snap and apt install and it lists the one from the PPA as installed. But when I "chromium-browser" in terminal it says "/usr/bin/chromium-browser' requires the chromium snap to be installed" And find turns up nothing for chromium except for ~/.snap etc... Any05:23

chalcedonymy husband has 20.04. we have been having problems with it intermittently crashing. tonight, it crashed while he was trying to open libre office, so i had him restart it, it crashed again while he was in gedit. and now, it crashed when i only had a terminal open. i can't keep it going long enough to do much at all.07:42

Seveasoh, they actually fixed the cert already11:12
KurozenI wanted to see if it boots at all, into an very old Pentium 4 PC, without LAN or anything, so if the image's tampered it won't hit anything11:12
Seveasdepends on the type of pentium 4. The older ones are 32 bit11:14
KurozenHeh ok, I restarted Firefox, redownload, it picked the same again, no cert error now.11:14
Seveas"The first Pentium 4-branded processor to implement 64-bit was the Prescott (90 nm) (February 2004), but this feature was not enabled. Intel subsequently began selling 64-bit Pentium 4s using the "E0" revision of the Prescotts, being sold on the OEM market as the Pentium 4, model F. The E0 revision also adds eXecute Disable (XD) (Intel's name for the NX bit) to Intel 64. Intel's official launch of Intel 6411:14
Seveas(under the name EM64T at that time) in mainstream desktop processors was the N0 stepping Prescott-2M."11:15
KurozenOh yeah I was wondering if it's too old, it's just an old PC that wee need to salvage, it's IDE so I can't put HDD in another PC to save  family data/files/pictures11:15
KurozenI don't have an IDE adapter and no I'm not liking the idea to buy one for this one occasion, it's probably like 30 dollar plus,11:15

Seveasyeah, your 20.04 iso is no good11:25
TJ-Kurozen: USB HDD mode should work with the ISO - it implies a BIOS/MBR on the boot device which the hybrid ISO images have11:27
KurozenI set USB-ZIP first boot device, USB-HDD second, USB-CDROM third now, still won't boot, (i made the image with Ubuntu Startup Disk on the i386 link 12.04.5)11:28

KurozenSeveas: actually it says  ... -i845- ...11:42
KurozenIf that makes any difference, it's not like it's suddenly non-desktop, it is an office PC from all the looks11:43
KurozenI thought it said i38611:43
TJ-Kurozen: the target PC is i386? I'm confused by your report of "USB Storage Device: Ultra USB 3.0" --- is that a USB host controller or simply the 'product' name of the USB storage key with the installer on it?11:53
guiverc18.04 flavors worked on pentium 4, pentium M PCs from 2003 onwards.. Lubuntu 18.04, Xubuntu 18.04 etc were tested... (early pentium M require forcepae), however 12.04 is off-topic here due it being EOL/ESM11:54
TJ-Kurozen: I know of PC BIOSes with bugs in them that do not correctly inform the boot-loader of which device they've started from and cause a hang after the MBR is read; but that'd give you a hanging flashing cursor usually so it sounds like the BIOS is not seeing on the USB the clues it expects in order to try booting (an MBR with one partition marked as active)11:57
HelenahWhere do I get LuaIRC from for Ubuntu?12:08
MaikHelenah: i guess nowhere12:13
KurozenTJ-: Yes the USB Storage Device: Ultra USB 3.0 is the product name, it' stads for Sandisk Ultra Flair USB 3 flash drive12:17
KurozenIt never said anything other than BOOT DISK FAILURE. PLEASE INSERT BOOT DEVICE AND PRESS ENTER12:17
TJ-Kurozen: OK - I thought somehow you'd got a USB3 controller on there (in which case I'd not expect the BIOS to know how to boot from such)12:18
KurozenNope, it could be USB 1.0 even, IDK yet12:18
TJ-Kurozen: yes; that points to either 1) the USB device not actually being tried or 2) not recognising an MBR partition table with one partition flagged as active.12:18
TJ-Kurozen: you can test (2) easily on another system with "sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdX" where X is the USB device - one partition should have a '*' boot/active flag against it12:19

munioThinkT510: there is no plugin in Add-on menu... I have already installed Java - openjdk15:45
muniofreebench: why? It is very similar to useit as server15:46
coconutI have a message with upgrading packages from apt: "The following packages have been kept back". How do i fix that?15:47
freebenchmunio, I see. thought there are the diffs15:47
rorycoconut, you yourself froze a package version yesterday15:47
coconutrory, correct but i did unhold it later15:48
ThinkT510munio: what awful website requires you to use java?15:48
roryOK worth checking :P coconut there's not necessarily anything that needs fixing15:48
roryIf the dependencies have changed on one of the packages you have installed so that a new package must be installed to perform the upgrade then that will be listed as "kept-back".15:48
roryyou can run "sudo apt-get --with-new-pkgs upgrade" and it will install the kept-back packages.15:49
munioThinkT510: VPS management to run VNC console :/15:49
roryor you can simply apt install each one15:49
ThinkT510munio: i take it you are stuck with a certain provider?15:50
rorycoconut, modern browsers don't support Java plugin any more, and it isn't even included with the Java download from Oracle these days, BUT...15:50

rorysee here, there is a Firefox fork which supports it: https://itectec.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-is-there-any-web-browser-with-npapi-plugins-support/15:51
coconutrory, i tried "sudo apt-get --with-new-pkgs upgrade" but that says to keep holding back packages too. :)15:52
rorydoes "apt full-upgrade" install them where "apt upgrade" would not?15:52
coconutlemme try15:53
roryYou can always "apt install package1 package2 package3..."15:53
roryI have to leave15:53
* rory out15:53
muniorory: I understand that... but sh*t happens15:53
coconutthanks rory15:53
coconutrory, now it says to remove install and upgrade at the same time, so i guess full-upgrade will fix it. :)15:55
GhostOfSamuraicoconut, rory's suggestion to explicitly install the held-back packages should work for you15:56
GhostOfSamuraii run into this periodically too, it's frustrating15:56
lambdaguy101so my friend switched to the nvidia driver 455, but he's getting bad performance. when going into neofetch, it shows 2 gpus: intel uhd graphics and geforce gtx mx150. by default it uses intel uhd graphics. when opening nvidia x server settings, it shows PRIME something. by default it selects NVIDIA (performance mode) but all he can do is choose one15:56
lambdaguy101of three options, or quit the app.15:56
coconutGhostOfSamurai, ok thanks but what it the reason for this happening?15:57
GhostOfSamuraii think it's either a package has a new dependency or an old one would be removed, but i think it's the former. the latter would be addressed with dist-upgrade instead15:58
GhostOfSamuraione sec15:59
GhostOfSamuraiyep, it's the former. from debian-administration.org: "If the dependencies have changed on one of the packages you have installed so that a new package must be installed to perform the upgrade then that will be listed as "kept-back"."16:00
GhostOfSamuraibasically, it's being safe about installing new packages with your consent. i think this could be better communicated in the output though16:00
GhostOfSamuraithat said... not sure why the --with-new-pkgs flag didn't work for you16:02
coconutGhostOfSamurai, just did a full-upgrade, i think it worked, let me reboot first16:02

GhostOfSamuraiyou want to be careful with dist-upgrade and full-upgrade16:09
GhostOfSamuraisince they remove package dependencies that are no longer required (i think they respect the manually installed flag though, not 100% on that)16:09
coconutthanks, still learning16:12
GhostOfSamuraiit's all good. i've shot myself in the foot enough times with dist-upgrade lol16:12
coconutmy terminal does not auto tab on the second word used, anything i can look at?16:14
hofercoconut, give us an example16:24
coconuthofer, sudo apt auto does not autocomplete to sudo apt autoremove ## when i tab it in my terminal16:25
coconutonly the first word does16:26

coconutit's a feature i really like to be honest16:26
hoferi had to tab twice for it to work16:27
coconutno that does not improve :)16:28
xtaospeaking of autoremove, does anyone know if that does the same as "remove" or "purge". and if you want it to purge is that possible? man page doesn't look like it has a --purge or anything16:28
EriC^^xtao: autoremove removes the left over packages, if you want it to purge the configs too you have to use apt-get autoremove --purge16:33
iamtheworstdevis it common to break Windows Update when you install/dual boot ubuntu16:34
xtaodoes --purge work with "apt autoremove" or only "apt-get autoremove". as i see it in the man page for apt-get, but not apt16:34
EriC^^iamtheworstdev: no16:35
EriC^^xtao: i'd guess for both16:35
xtaook. i use apt normally, so that's why i was wondering. should i maybe use apt-get instead to run that command. thanks16:35
EriC^^dpkg -l | grep ^rc   should show packages that still have their configs if you want to be certain16:35
EriC^^no problem16:36

ioriacoconut, apt auto + tab does not autocomplete to 'autoremove' because there are 3 options with 'auto' : autoclean   autopurge   autoremove ; so you need at least another letter  e.g.: 'apt autor '18:18

ioriacoconut, yes, but it's hidden (use ll or ls -al18:22
coconutyeah, aware of that but the file does not exist.18:23

naribiaI recently configured LAMP, and it was working just fine on localhost18:33
naribiaidk what happened, maybe after restart, I now get "Connection failed: No route to host" at http://localhost18:34
iorialotuspsychje, if it works on Lubuntu , the problem it's not the kernel, maybe some gnome settings18:34
lotuspsychjeioria: yeah, but the weird part is on kernel 5.18:34
lotuspsychje5.4.0-42 it works like a charm on gnome18:34
lotuspsychjeand i can reproduce this on a fresh -desktop too18:35
ioriai see18:35
lotuspsychjedefault iso it works all, the update to -58 networking borked18:35
lotuspsychjeweird heh18:36
iorialotuspsychje, 20.04 has an edge kernel version in the repository : ; you might try it18:37

lotuspsychjegood idea ioria this is a customers laptop, when ssd arrives for upgrade, gonna try -desktop again18:38

iamtheworstdevif I'm starting from scratch... going to dual boot win10 + ubuntu and want it all uefi.. is it best to start with one OS before the other?19:58
leftyfbiamtheworstdev: here's the way I look at it. It either doesn't matter or it does. If it does matter, I would do Windows first and then Ubuntu. If it doesn't matter, then still do the same order just in case.20:01
=== Scotty_ZZZzzz is now known as Scotty_Trees
sarnoldiamtheworstdev: I have no idea if it matters which order you use, but historically windows has never done multiboot well, but linux has always had to contend with multiboot; I'd install ubuntu second20:05
jayjois there a way to take an lvm snapshot and periodically do a diff with my actual system? or specific partitions? I'm hoping to snapshot a relatively "fresh" install and check things every month or so for irregularities20:26

woenxHi. I'm trying to sync the user's password from one computer to another. Is there a safer way than just editing the hashes in /etc/shadow?20:37
woenxSo, let' say, I have the hash from /etc/shadow from one user. How can I change the password for the same user in another computer without manually editing the file/20:38
sarnoldwoenx: the usermod(8) manpage gives a -p option that claims to do it, I've not tried it myself20:39
woenxthanks, let's see20:39
woenxOk, time to run some tests : )20:40
=== High is now known as PsillyCybin
woenxchpasswd -e also seems to work20:44
sarnoldwoenx: oh nice20:47
sarnoldwoenx: chpasswd(8) mentions pam a LOT more often, that's promising; I wonder if PAM even provides an API that could be used for this, or if it only offers APIs for managing the unhashed passwords.. I just assumed it wouldn't offer an api..20:49
woenxI mean, the right thing to do would be installing a domain controller... but I just want to centralize the passwords for the 4 o 5 computers in my family20:49
woenxa domain seems overkill20:50
sarnoldyeah, I wish there was something simple for that20:50
woenxI'm writing a script that will run on the nas every x minutes, trying to connect via ssh to the laptops at home, check if the password has the same hash, and  if not, update it20:51
sarnoldI'm not entirely sure what it is I actually want from such a thing :) but it'd be nice if it could just do the right hting :) hehe20:51
sarnolddo your users ever actually change their passwords?20:51
woenxmy relatives? not as often as I wanted20:52
woenx(me included)20:52
sarnoldI'm not a huge fan of the "change passwords often" idea; it protects against database dumps that include passwords weak enough to reverse, and it protects against attackers who get the password once but then never set up back doors20:55
sarnoldchanging passwords once in a while probably does make sense, but certainly many places take it too far :)20:55
sarnoldand at home I bet a lot of people pick words like 'puppy' or their kid's name or something20:56
woenxwell, I am not sure how safe would be leaving the password "house" for 3 years...20:56
sarnoldwoenx: probably not much worse than cycling through 'house' 'home' 'couch' 'ilikedogs' '123456' every month :)21:04

iamtheworstdevi have an unencrypted ext4 partition, mounted as / , that I'd like to shrink.. but gparted isn't letting me resize .. thoughts on what would cause that?22:10
mefistofelesiamtheworstdev: you cannot do that while mounted22:11
crorafHi. I have to install some printer drivers, can you help me on how to do it?22:11
mefistofelesalso, defrag before that22:11
mefistofelesand backup :P22:11
iamtheworstdevit's a fresh install.. i thought gparted supported online resize22:12
crorafThis is the drivers link, and this is my system info: 5.4.0-45-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Wed Aug 26 13:38:52 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux22:12
crorafAlso, I have some other drivers that come as driver.deb.tar.gz22:13
crorafI extracted using rightclick Extract here in my file explorer in ubuntu.22:14
crorafThere is a install.sh script inside, and I executed it.22:14
iamtheworstdevok.. so just installed linux (from usb).. tell uefi to boot USB so I can resize root partition.. but now it just goes to a grub prompt22:18
iamtheworstdevbut this is the same media I just installed from22:18
iamtheworstdevit should be going into a live linux22:18
fradi have ubuntu 20.10 with bluetooth. If I buy a bluetooth fm transmitter for my car, I should be able to listen to music from my notebook in the car, correct?22:33
sarnoldbluetooth on linux is frustrating enough that I'd probably prefer to use a wire for that22:34
jeremy31frad: in theory it should work22:35
sarnoldI've got a bluetooth receiver/transmitter that I hooked up to my car's aux input, and connect to it with my android phone; that works pretty well22:35
fradandroid, sarnold , can you play flac files as well?22:35
sarnoldfrad: I've never tried flac on the phone22:36
fradwhat formats can you play sarnold ?22:36
sarnoldfrad: I only listen to youtube music (*sniff* no more google play music)22:39
fradso, m4a :D22:40
sarnoldI do keep meaning to dust off my albums and re-rip them.. I did a giant ripping project around 2001 or so to ogg, does anything do ogg any more? heh22:41
fradi do22:41

fradsarnold, are android tablet' batteries visible from the exterior? Can I change them without using a screwdriver?22:50
sarnoldfrad: no idea there, I always use my phone; I suspect it's very rare to change batteries in tablets at all, let alone without screwdriver22:52
fradi don't want to overpay if I need to get a new battery. Id rather do it alone22:56
fradthose things are glued??22:58
sarnoldyeah usually23:01
fradsarnold, do you know of any small tablet or computer, not glued, I can use to load music and play through bluetooth in my car?23:04
sarnoldfrad: if you're building this into the car, you could also supply power to the tablet directly from the car and not care about the battery in the thing23:06
fradok, no battery23:06
fradsarnold, do you perchance know of any device I could plug into the car's lighter and play flac / mp3 without an android device?23:12
sarnoldfrad: not a single device, no; I used to have a contraption for lighter-power, rf transmitter, and it would supply power and get data from the old spinning-metal ipod.. that was cool :)23:13
fradah, the good old days23:16
