FevixI have a game installed that I'm trying to uninstall. Right clicking on it in the applications menu and selecting 'show details' brings up Software, but tells me there are no details available. I've tried to run apt remove with the package name, but it tells me there's no such package installed, and yet the game is certainly installed and can run00:29
oerhekshow did you install it? as  a snap, perhaps?00:30
FevixI don't know. POssibly00:30
oerheks'snap list' in terminal00:30
Fevixapt list mars* brings up both the game package and the game data package, marsshooter and marsshooter-data00:30
oerhekssudo snap remove marsthingy00:31
Fevixthanks, it looks like it's actually uninstalling this time00:31
oerheksoke, have fun!00:31
Fevixalso fwiw it might still be best practice but with the snap command it still asks for sudo password00:33
Fevixso you only have to do snap remove00:33
oerheksNo, still asks password.00:36
FevixIt still asks password but you don't have to preface with sudo00:36
oerheksbut after 1 sudo comand, the environment stays open for a few minutes, so next sudo does not ask it.00:37
oerheksoh, i get your point00:37
oerheksyes, indeed.00:37
twbUbuntu LTS live media can do ZFS, but last time I looked they're ZFS 0.801:40
twbZFS 2.0 introduces Zstd support, which is Super Nice.  Do/will 20.04 media support ZFS 2?01:40
twb(Or would I have to grab 21.04 or something)01:41
tomreyntwb: OpenZFS 2.0.0 (which i' *guessing* you're referring to) only released 20 days ago. the latest ubuntu release is 20.10, which, as the version name indicates, released in october.01:51
ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.01:51
twbYeah understood.  I guess I thought Canonical might make an exception :-)01:53
ubottuHirsute Hippo is the codename for Ubuntu 21.04. For technical support, see #ubuntu+1. For testing and QA feedback and help, see #ubuntu-quality.01:54
tomreynbut so far, hirsuite has 0.8.401:54
tomreynthere could be a !ppa or other third party repository, or a snap01:55
twblikewise in Debian (see rmadison)01:55
tomreynjust did :)01:55

usb_destroyerthe USB drive is actually 8GB02:25
twbusb_destroyer: what is the actual fault?02:25
usb_destroyerfor some reason gdisk and fdisk only see that after I zeroed the first sectors, because it was only seeing 4GB02:25
usb_destroyertwb, I cannot use GParted or other gdisk, or fdisk, because of this.02:26
twbusb_destroyer: is it a "name brand" USB key, or a 10 RMB one from a street vendor?02:26
usb_destroyer8GB kingston02:26
twbusb_destroyer: does this fault affect all your USB keys, or only a specific subset?02:26
usb_destroyerwell, I have another kingston usb drive, but it is more damaged02:27
twbusb_destroyer: does the fault appear reliably on all USB ports / computers?02:27
usb_destroyerthe funny thing is, I can format it on a FreeBSD system, and it works on ubuntu!02:28
twbusb_destroyer: it sounds to me like the FTL is irreperably damaged on that specific key, and it should just be thrown away.  If you can't afford that, try using blkdiscard and/or wipefs to try to reset the parts you can reset.02:28
usb_destroyerBut gdisk, fdisk, gparted, all of them see it wrong.02:28
usb_destroyerI used wipefs, and it removed the EFI partition and a FreeBSD label that were left there for some reason.02:29
usb_destroyerthat was nice but didn't solve the problem02:29
usb_destroyerWhat blows my mind is that Nemo sees the USB drive as it is: 8GB with a FAT32 partition.02:30
usb_destroyerbut gdisk, fdisk, and gparted struggle to see anything real02:30

usb_destroyerEven more interesting, I just did a `dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=16MB` and guess what... it runs out of space at 4GB, but the file explorer still mounts and sees the FAT32 partition and its files in it!03:19
usb_destroyerand the 8GB free space too!03:19
twbSounds like your file manager (or udisks2) is broken03:24
twbNote that you can simply do "cp /dev/zero /dev/disk/by-id/usb-KINGSTON-aaaaaaa" instead of fine-tuning block sizes with dd03:24
usb_destroyerhmmm, haven't thought of that, twb , thanks03:26
usb_destroyerfile manager works, I can write files, copy, delete... everything works fine.03:30
usb_destroyerdd, gdisk, fdisk, gparted... they all see 4GB max03:31
usb_destroyerbesides, they error out when trying to format or anything03:35

g105bHi all, I have suffered a gfx card failure and after replacing, I can't boot ubuntu - Windows is installed on another HDD and it's taken over. Any ideas?10:09
matsamang105b: you must've done something other than replace the gfx card10:09
matsamang105b: anyway: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows10:10
g105bmatsaman: boot failure many times, which caused windows to freak out10:10
g105bI would like it to boot to sdc which is the physical disk with ubuntu on (pop os)10:12
matsamang105b: if you disconnect the sata cable going to SATA1, what happens?10:14
g105bmatsaman: I get an error, Please insert a bootable medium and reboot.10:15
g105bSorry, no that's if I try to boot to that drive from bios - if I disconnect the sata cable, I get a windows recovery error saying a required device has been disconnected.10:16
g105bI've just run boot-repair from the live usb, I will reboot to see where i get to...10:18
g105b... switched to my laptop for IRC. That was a bit silly of me logging in on the live USB.10:20
g105bboot-repair did nothing :(10:22
matsamanwell your paste says it's using efi, AFAICT, so not sure why you'd try with 'BIOS'10:22
g105bI meant when I press F11 at the start of the boot - is this not BIOS?10:23

matsamanthe firmware configurator, though, I know what you're referring to10:24
g105bYeah that's what I mean, I can access it from the BIOS screen too so I thought it was the same thing.10:24

matsamang105b: don't think Windows would do that for sdc10:30
matsamang105b: what if you unplug all sata cables but the one for sdc, and hook that one up to SATA1?10:30
g105bmatsaman: I've just tried it, and I get the "No bootable medium" error at the POST screen.10:31
g105bIf I look at the boot-repair logs, it says that there is only one OS detected, on sda10:31
matsamanthat makes sense, if the Ubuntu disk is plugged into SATA110:31

g105bNo, it's plugged in as normal currently.10:43
g105bI'll try again with only that drive plugged in.10:43
g105bAlthough, I'm getting close to just throwing the whole thing out of the window.10:44
matsamanmmm, that would eliminate variables, if you plug in only the drive you're dealing with for Ubuntu, and refer to it as sda10:44
g105bWeirdly, on what was /dev/sdc2 there is a lot of Windows looking files, as if it's actually been overwritten by Windows!10:49
g105bOn that disk there is a $RECYCLE.BIN and System Volume Information directory.10:50

YounderMoving a Jetson Xavier development board to a auvidea X220 board. And it has a Image file and device tree (dtb dir), but this will be overwritten during updates. Work  to be done! Any recomendations?18:00
YounderI should say I install the operationg system on the developemen board then move xavier module to the x220. As is ethernet, the HDMI work but USB is down and out. They offer a Linux image and device tree but I have to install it myself and this would not play well with the update manager.18:03
davido_How do I determine what is driving up load? It doesn't appear to be CPU. But when I returned to my computer after sitting awake overnight its load average was 18,21,21, and I couldn't even use sudo (unresponsive to sudo)18:43
zerohour999Does anyone know how to recover a LUKS encrypted partition from a recently formatted hard drive? A family member unplugged my WD elements drive from my ubuntu rpi server and reformatted it because it was a linux filesystem. I just found it last night now formatted as NTFS over what was an ext4 LUKS volume originally. What steps can I take to18:52
zerohour999recover this? If I can at least get it recovered enough to open the backup tarball in the volume I should be able to recover all of the data.18:52
leftyfbzerohour999: recovery is highly unlikely19:00
leftyfbzerohour999: better off just restoring from backup. If that was the backup, then re-backup to it from the original source files.19:00
YounderThe moral here is to always keep a backup in another location as well as a local one.19:02
zerohour999@leftyfb I'm willing to try anything, my last backup that I have a copy of on my own computer is two months old. Is it possible to maybe restore files from the cache of nextcloud? I was thinking about reading the logfile to check everything I've uploaded since then and attempting something from there, but I can't imagine that would do much beside19:02
zerohour999tell me all the files I lost19:02
leftyfbzerohour999: that would be a question for #nextcloud19:03
zerohour999Right, nonetheless should I attempt reformatting the drive as ext4 and trying to recover the data that way, or is it almost guaranteed failure because it was a LUKS volume?19:05
leftyfbzerohour999: the more changes you make to that drive, the less likely you are to recover anything19:06
davido_There are professional data recovery services.19:06
leftyfbzerohour999: if the data is that important, then you need to contact a data recovery company. Expect to pay thousands of dollars19:06
davido_But agreed; the more you alter, the more you lose.19:06
EriC^^zerohour999: what's the problem?19:08
zerohour999EriC^^ what do you mean?19:08
leftyfbEriC^^: LUKS partition that was formatted to NTFS. They want to recover the original LUKS19:09
EriC^^zerohour999: what's your issue, i just joined so there's no backlog to read19:09
EriC^^oh, thanks leftyfb19:09
leftyfbthere's really no coming back from that, not with the data encrypted.19:09
TJ-zerohour999: you did do a dump backup of the LUKS header when it was created didn't you?19:09
zerohour999I believe so, it's been quite some time since I set up the server originally19:10
Younderdavido_, A professional data recovery service would go ever sector vy sector and find data in segments if it is in ascii text for you might bee able to puzzle the pieces back together. Bit really yo have basically taken the disk to the shredder and you have to piece together the strips.19:10
davido_Younder: I totally agree. But I think that it's beyond what can be fixed in #ubuntu, and that a professional service is about as close as he could come to getting it back. But I think it's a lost cause. a LUKS partition is encrypted. It's already not plain text. Format something else over it, and you lose the semantics that would be needed to decrypt it.19:12
dexterhi! are there any other terminal file editing tools i should be aware of? for example, cut is a really handy tool. right now i want to insert a comma at the end of each line, how would i approach that?19:13
leftyfbdexter: sed19:13
dextersed, i heard about that, never used it, let me investigate a bit!19:14
leftyfbdexter: you should look up "bash basics" on google19:14
dexteri know how to do that with bash scripting19:14
dexteri can write basic bash scripts too19:14
dexterI dont know any awk though19:15
davido_perl -nle 'print "$_,"' filename19:15
TJ-To be clear, with LUKS, once the 4KiB header is overwritten without backup the data is gone19:15
leftyfbdexter: if you haven't used sed, then you still have a long way to go with bash scripting19:16
dexterhaha, yeah fair enough, i primarily use bash for automation, rarely over 80 LoC19:16
dexteri prefer programming in C, bash is purely for lazy automation for me, until now, gotta learn some sed19:17
zutatno bash script should exceed 80 loc :P19:17
leftyfbmy backup script is about 400 lines19:18
zerohour999@TJ- understandable. I had a cronjob to run weekly backups on the drive so I at least have a list of the files, if I restore my october backup, what's the easiest way to run a comparison to see what lines of text (aka files) are missing between the old backup?19:18
dexterupon reading the basics of sed, i get the idea that (n)vi(m) uses a lot of sed in the background, or at least the same syntax19:18
Younderdexter, same syntax, yes19:19
leftyfbzerohour999: rsync dryrun19:19
dexterall my life i've been told that the plural of regex is regrets, and now i'm told to learn sed, which uses alot of regex ^-^19:20
zerohour999@leftyfb will that work with comparing the new file list to the cronlog?19:21
leftyfbzerohour999: not without massaging the data19:21
leftyfbzerohour999: nothing will do what you're looking for out of the box19:22
Deano59leftyfb: yo what's that command again to tell me how fast my boot time is? :)19:22
leftyfbzerohour999: but you could write a script to pull data from the cron log and write out a file that rsync can parse19:22
leftyfbDeano59: systemd-analyze is what all the cool kids are using these days19:23
zerohour999@leftyfb true true, I'll give it a shot. Thank you for your help!19:23
Deano59thanks. :)19:23
Younderdexter, vi is the natural home of  ed, sed, and ex so regex is a big part of it. If you want a graphics based editor that is less regexp based perhaps Atom or Code Studio?19:29
dexterYounder: VSCode and Atom use Electron, i mean, about regex was joking, but electron eats up your pc19:31
dexteri mean 600MB for teams19:31
dexterRAM usage19:31
Younderdexter, my machine has 128 Gb.. depends on what yo have available. But you already run a web browser. Atom is basically chromium and javascript19:32
Youndernano is the basic editor in ubuntu19:40
YounderOtherwise EMACS is still popular and available in text mode.19:42

leitzAnyone able to parse why a fresh install of MariaDB fails?   https://gist.github.com/LeamHall/04615d6546f4b2bb4c681dd922db783d19:46
leitzI installed Mysql, then removed it, to install MariaDB.19:46
leitzUbuntu 20.04, Mariadb installed via apt.19:47
Younderleftyfb, I use both. EMACS is best for Common Lisp  and has a good LaTex mode. vim for command line editing. I do a lot of ssh and command line editing of files. Also GUI's like Code Studio of Eclips.19:47
leftyfbleitz: you should probably purge both then reinstall mariadb19:53
leitzleftyfb, can you purge after it's already been removed? I removed mysql before installing Maria.19:55
leitzapparmor caused an initial issue for Maria, but I've removed that as well.19:55
leitzReinstalling mysql so I can purge it properly.  :)19:59

KF5WYXI have an Off-Topic question, but I don't really know where-else to ask.  I'm trying to build cross binutils, build=ubuntu 18.04, host=win32, target=x86_64 linux - Everything builds if I exclude GDB (which I need), when I include it I get  "configure: error: GMP is missing or unusable20:25
KF5WYXThe question it's self being, "Any ideas?"20:25
TJ-KF5WYX: is that on Windows sub-system for Linux?20:26
KF5WYXTJ - No, I'm running an Ubuntu 18.04 vm, trying to build Mingw hosted binutils to target linux.20:26
KF5WYXI'm about to paste-bin my build script, but should also point out that I do not know what I'm doing  (I'm a developer but entirely unfamiliar with the GNU tool-chain)20:27
KF5WYXhttps://paste.ubuntu.com/p/fZdD9mZsSq/  <- the bit at the top is just installing packages, many may be unrequired.  --disable-gdb is added, in which case everything works.20:28
KF5WYXhttps://paste.ubuntu.com/p/JWD4SMyw4T/ <- when gdb enabled20:29
TJ-KF5WYX: oh! does the package './configure --help ' script indicate it takes options related to gmp? e.g. --with-gmp-include20:30
KF5WYX./configure --help | grep gmp20:31
KF5WYX  --with-gmp-dir=PATH     this option has been REMOVED20:31
KF5WYX  --with-gmp=PATH         specify prefix directory for the installed GMP20:31
KF5WYX                          --with-gmp-include=PATH/include plus20:31
KF5WYX                          --with-gmp-lib=PATH/lib20:31
KF5WYX  --with-gmp-include=PATH specify directory for installed GMP include files20:31
TJ-KF5WYX: or possibly --with-gmp-lib or similar - those examples are from the 'mpc' package so are unlikely to be exactly the same20:31
TJ-KF5WYX: so, first check if you've got libgmp-dev installed20:32
KF5WYXTJ: I've tried --with-gmp=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu with no change20:32
KF5WYXTJ: I do have libgmp-dev20:32
TJ-KF5WYX: I've just checked where that package puts its files; it ought to be found but try "./configure --with-gmp=/usr ..."  just in case that helps20:34
TJ-KF5WYX: configure should created a config.status and config.log which, when examined, might indicate why gmp isn't being discovered20:34
KF5WYXTJ: Thank you, trying it now - It'll take some time to get results due to single-threading make.20:34
TJ-KF5WYX: generally when these things happen I open the ./configure script and search for the section that detects/sets the library options, so I'd do 'less configure' and then /gmp and read how it tries to detect the libraries it needs20:36
KF5WYXTJ- --with-gmp=/usr did not change anything.  I did try reading the configure / make scripts and got deep in variables, I'll look again. Also examining config.log since I'd previously not known it was there.20:38
TJ-KF5WYX: FYI most -dev packages ship the required build flags/options in package-config files; libgmp-dev puts them in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig/gmp.pc20:39
TJ-KF5WYX: might be worth reading that20:39
TJ-KF5WYX: I very often do builds thus: ./configure --verbose ... |& tee /tmp/configure.log" and then I can review the verbose configure script activity if something goes wrong20:41

Ubuntu-ar-es-enHi, I have a bug in fresh install using xubuntu / ubuntu mate, not using ubuntu / kubuntu.

KF5WYXTJ: Thank you for your help. I did not yet resolve it, but, I realized that I'm wrong about what I'm doing anyway. I'm actually building host=win32 target=win32, and therefore, it would need a win32 build of gmp to link against.  Not sure how to go about building that, but I'll bet I can find it if I look up WSL2 or MingW build guides.21:17

AJS66i installed Ubuntu 20.10 and for the most part its working great.   when i boot up i get to grub and then my screen is black until GDM loads.  my drive is encrypted so i need to guess when it is asking for the drive password as its not showing on the screen.  anyone have any ideas how i can get the bootup to show on screen.  Side note if i launch21:40
AJS66in recovery mode i see the full startup21:40
TJ-AJS66: remove "splash" from the boot options via /etc/default/grub and after do "sudo update-grub" - that'll prevent the Plymouth splash screen from getting in the way (you can also try tapping the Esc key when the display is black - that tells Plymouth to show the tty console messages)21:45
AJS66TJ- Thanks, I'll give that a shot!21:45
TJ-AJS66: it could also be caused by problems with the display driver21:46
AJS66TJ- That's what i was thinking as well.  I'm running the nvidia 450 driver.  it seems to be working perfectly in GDM though.21:50
TJ-AJS66: yes; we sometimes see that with nvidia - it has to do with the driver not correcrtly taking over from the UEFI framebuffer driver21:56
