SteelRoseHi all! Is there any reason as to why non-privileged users can run "su -" ? /var/log/auth.log says that /etc/securetty is missing by default on 20.04 LTS, so I created a soft-link from /snap/core18/current/etc/securetty to /etc/securetty ... still users cannot become root via "su -" ...10:49
choiceSteelRose: I didn't even know you can do "su -" to become root.10:50

SteelRosechoice: yes, you can... :-) it has been so on all UNIX and Linux systems... I'm still getting accustomed to Ubuntu though10:51

javi404bipin: so you are using ubuntu 20.10 but you want to use Lubuntu 20.0411:59
javi404I assume they didn't copy / migrate the Lubuntu, or failed to?12:00
bipinI have both Lubuntu 20.04 and Ubuntu 20.1012:00
javi404what problem are you having?12:01

bipinIt was a friend of mine , who did this for me , he doesnt know how to solve this either12:03
javi404also, not sure why you would want both lubuntu and ubuntu on the same workstation.12:03
bipineither way I am fine12:03
javi404bipin: sounds like a recipe for disaster12:04
javi404bipin: i would backup all your files if you can boot into lubuntu and start fresh12:04
bipinif I don't get any errors Ubuntu 20.10 works  ,then I just want that12:04
javi404like i said12:05
javi404backup everything, reinstall and format all the drives12:05
bipinIs there an alternative ?12:05
javi404make sure the SSD is plugged into the first port on the motherboard (im assuming this is a workstation) and hard drive is 2nd port.12:06
javi404dvd port 3, etc12:06
javi404bipin: im sure there is, but without looking at it, impossible to solve from here.12:06

ThinkT510bipin: have you ever installed ubuntu yourself?12:08
ThinkT510bipin: non-LTS releases are only supported for 9 months, so unless you want to upgrade every 9 months you would be better off sticking to an LTS release12:09
bipinI had the similar error before I had an SSD , I don't remeber exactly how I solved it12:10
ThinkT510bipin: do you want the OS on the SSD and just have the hdd mounted as storage space?12:11

bipinI do have a PenDrive12:13
ThinkT510bipin: then you need to know how much space your backup will take and whether the usb stick can hold that much12:13
ThinkT510bipin: first step is deciding what you want to backup12:14
bipinokay I will store all essential files into a penDrive that I need12:14
javi404bipin: and make sure you have a copy on another penDrive12:15

javi404him / her12:15
eqwjavi404: i think that is as complicated as making a backup12:16
ThinkT510eqw: sounds like bipin wants an LTS release on the SSD so no real point in troubleshooting that if they are just reinstalling over 12.10 that is already on there12:16
javi404eqw: what is?12:16
eqwyes, 12.10 wasn't a good idea12:17
bipinmaybe thats the problem12:17
ThinkT510sorry, yes, 20.1012:17
bipinI think I will fresh install 20.04 on the SSD12:18

javi40420.04.2 is broken12:19
javi404can i revert to 20.04.1?12:19
rorythe difference is in the installation media only. A system that was installed using 20.04 or 20.04.1 is the same as a system which was installed using 20.04.2, it's just that package updates have been bundled into the updated media to save download time after installation12:20

lordcirth__metbsd, the mini iso is linked in the !mini paste. http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/bionic/main/installer-amd64/current/images/netboot/mini.iso15:53
metbsdi hate live iso15:53
ThinkT510the !server factoid looks like its cut off15:53
lordcirth__Yeah, it does15:53
nunya_Ok have hexchat installed hopefully not as difficult to register my nick and join channel automatically. Was reluctant to leat xchat because I finally got it working after much cursing ang Googling how to do so.15:54
ThinkT510nunya_: hexchat is just a client, no need to re-register your nick15:54
oerheksall isos are here https://torrent.ubuntu.com/tracker_index15:56
oerheksoh, 20.04 is live only?15:56
oerheksthen it should work...15:56
nunya_<ThinkT510>Any way to have xchat and hexchat running at the same time in case I need help configuring hexchat?15:56
ThinkT510nunya_: you can run them both at the same time but obviously you'll be using different nicks15:57
metbsdserver legacy15:57
nunya_<ThinkT510>Mind helping setup hexchat to use nunya as my nick and join ubuntu channel?16:00
ThinkT510nunya_: not sure what exactly you need to set up, you just install hexchat, launch it, then look at the settings and change them accordingly16:02
nunya_<ThinkT510>I obviously don't know what I'm doing!16:02
ThinkT510nunya_: to install: sudo apt-get install hexchat16:03

nunya_Can't get hexchat to do anything using xchat unless I can get help getting hexchat going16:10
ThinkT510nunya_: what do you see when you launch hexchat?16:11
nunya_<ThinkT510>Installed hexchat16:11
nunya_<ThinkT510>list of servers, tried to join freenode16:12
ThinkT510nunya_: /connect irc.freenode.org16:13
nunya_<ThinkT510>Typee "nunya_: /connect irc.freenode.org" into hexchat?16:15
ThinkT510nunya_: in the text box you need to type in just type that: /connect irc.freenode.org16:16
nunya_Ok got welcome message16:17
ThinkT510nunya_: now you can change your nick: /nick superawesomeperson16:17
ThinkT510nunya_: it will tell you if the nick is already in use16:18
leftyfbnunya_: close both hexchat and xchat. Then run: rsync -av ~/.xchat2/ ~/.config/hexchat  # then open hexchat. Most, if not all of your xchat settings should now be part of hexchat16:19
nunya_<ThinkT510>Actually, it has told me You are now known as superawesomepers16:19
leftyfbnunya_: sorry, that should be: rsync -av ~/.xchat2/ ~/.config/hexchat/16:20
leftyfbforgot the trailing slash at the end16:20
nunya_<leftyfb>Please bear with me. Please put in quotes exactly what to type.16:20
leftyfbrsync -av ~/.xchat2/ ~/.config/hexchat/16:20
nunya_<leftyfb>Going to close xchat and hexchat and type "rsync -av ~/.xchat2/ ~/.config/hexchat/" into terminal16:22

leftyfbnunya_: why message did you get?16:31
nunya_Have to close xchat, go back get the message, copy to text file, then tell you.16:32
ThinkT510if the xchat settings take care of identifying the nick then your rsync command should have just gotten the same result with hexchat, right?16:34
ThinkT510assuming xchat and hexchat settings are interchangable and compatible16:35
oerheks2 clients, both same port  6667..16:36
leftyfboerheks: they should have only opened hexchat, not xchat16:36
oerheksi agree..16:36
leftyfboerheks: also, that's outbound.16:36
oerheksand transfering xchat settings is of no use ...16:36
leftyfbit should have worked. That's how I saved mine back in the day16:37

nunya_<leftyfb>Ok what eactly do I need to do to open freenode and join ubuntu channel in hexchat? Sree what I mean? ROYAL PAIN! At least Xchat is working!16:41
ThinkT510nunya_: the message you pasted tells you exactly what you need to do: /msg nickserv identify yourpasswordhere16:42
leftyfbnunya_: you read he documentation I gave you16:42
leftyfbor that16:43
leftyfbbut the documentation I posted saves it in hexchat so you don't have to type it every time you open hexchat16:43
nunya_I don't remember the password16:43
ThinkT510nunya_: that is a problem then16:43
leftyfbnunya_: that that is a non-ubuntu, non-hexchat problem. Free free to /join #freenode   for help with that16:43
nunya_I installed Hexchat at the insistence of several people here, I'm sticking with Xchat. It ain't broke I ain't fixing it!16:45
leftyfbnunya_: please understand, your main issue right now is NICKSERV registration which has nothing to do with Ubuntu or Hexchat. You can save the authentication information in hexchat following it's documentation, but to set up the registration or if you forgot your password, that is an issue to be directed at Freenode services16:46
oerheksSASL ( username + password)16:46
leftyfbnunya_: xchat2 is broke, it's not supported and is vulnerable to exploitation16:46
ThinkT510nunya_: you are literally one step away from getting it working. you really ought to know your own passwords16:46
nunya_Too many passwords to remember!16:47
leftyfbnunya_: then maybe the internet isn't for you. Have you tried gardening?16:47

oerhekssudo apt remove xchat -f17:07
ThinkT510nunya_: then it will confirm you have identified and you can /join #ubuntu17:07
leftyfbnunya_: or https://slackalaxy.com/2016/10/19/hexchat-auto-login/17:07
ThinkT510nunya_: you won't be able to identify if you are already logged in on another client with the same nick though17:07
ThinkT510nunya_: once you've done it manually and verified that it works you can then change the hexchat settings to do it for you automatically (like leftyfb says)17:09
nunya_<oerheks>Not doing that until I have xchat working!17:09
oerheksleftyfb, i think that guide is outdated? now it is; SASL ( username + password)17:10
leftyfbnunya_: you are here now, you are able to ask for support with hexchat just fine, forget about modifying xchat or messing with it. Please just chat here and follow the help we are providing for hexchat17:11
ThinkT510leftyfb: you just missed them17:11
leftyfbthey're not listening at all17:11

leftyfbwhen nunya_ comes back: https://freenode.net/kb/answer/hexchat17:16
nunya_<ThinkT510>It feels like I'm caught in a loop. I do what you tell me Xchat tells me to do something, I do it, then it tells me to do smething else, I do it, then it tells me to do the first thing again! I don't care how lame Xchat is at least I have it working!17:25

blb4393and if I sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade?18:27
lotuspsychjeblb4393: are you on 5.4 still?18:27
lotuspsychjeblb4393: then you will need !HWE18:27
ioriablb4393, 'apt -s full-upgrade'  will tell you  (and will probably show linux-generic-hwe-20.04 in the list)18:29
Ether_ManOn that note, what version will 21.04 use? Also 5.8 or?18:30
spectrezhHi, Please help a desperate man in need.. I went in to KDE on my PopOS and went to system settings, hardware, display and clicked something to try to enable composition. I reboot and now it only loads in emergency mode. Im in a terminal type shell and resolution is a disaster.. cant really work in this mode or see logs properly18:30
lotuspsychjeEther_Man: 21.04 is still in development18:32
leftyfb!popos | spectrezh18:33
ubottuspectrezh: The Ubuntu channels can only provide support for Ubuntu and its official flavors, since other distributions and derivatives have repository and software changes. So please use their dedicated support venues, for example: Linux Mint (#linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org), Kali Linux (#kali-linux), and LXLE (#lxle)18:33

lordcirth__arash, look in /etc/netplan for the config18:35
lotuspsychjeEther_Man: until the official releasenotes of an ubuntu release we cant predict18:36
lotuspsychjeEther_Man: you can !info linux-image-generic in #ubuntu+1 for current kernel18:37
blb4393ioria: sudo apt -s full-upgrade shows -> 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgrade18:37
ioriablb4393, what's kernel ? uname -r18:37
leftyfbblb4393: sudo apt install linux-generic-hwe-20.0418:38
Ether_Manlotuspsychje: funny how you can't predict it when I just found the info on the site.. 5.11 or newer. So no it won't be staying on 5.8.18:39
ioriablb4393, ok, then  install it  manually (if you want it)18:39
leftyfbioria: hwe18:39
arashlordcirth__: thank you for that, i found that and there are ip addressess and getway on the file but are they assigned automaticly or these settings are static ?18:41
iorialeftyfb, yep18:41
leftyfbarash: if they are specified in the config they are static18:41
lordcirth__arash, static. If it was dhcp, it would just say "eth0: dhcp" or similar.18:41
leftyfbarash: why are you asking?18:41
lotuspsychjeEther_Man: we will see at final release shall we18:41
Ether_Manlotuspsychje: seems highly unlikely that they would roll BACK from the daily builds no?18:42
blb4393what libgl1-mesa-dri version come with the 20.04.2?18:42
leftyfbblb4393: are you running 20.04.2?18:43
blb4393it says i am18:43
leftyfbblb4393: apt-cache policy libgl1-mesa-dri18:43
blb4393i know what version is installed on my machine, that wasn't the question18:44
leftyfbblb4393: why do you need to know?18:44
arashleftyfb the actual problem is there is a server in a university with a none-public ip address but somehow they assigned a valid public ip address to that server, so there is a public ip address which connected to this server but there is no sign of this ip address on the server settings... and i want to know how they did it...18:44
blb4393if the kernel were not automatically updated i can assume that some other parts were also not upgraded18:44
leftyfbblb4393: the libgl1-mesa-dri version is not directly tied to the kernel version18:45
blb4393can someone answer the damn question18:45
leftyfbarash: they could have just used the ip command to set it live18:45
leftyfbblb4393: since 20.04.2 was just released, if you download the 20.04.2 iso, you will more than likely get the same version available to your machine running 20.04.2 now18:46
blb4393i checked with the package search - 20.2.6-0ubuntu0.20.10.1 is the version in 20.10, same as mine. So I assume that except the kernel everything else is updated properly. See the point "support" channel?18:52
compdocblb4393, what is the apt -s option? Ive never used that18:52
blb4393simulate i assume18:53
leftyfbblb4393: can you explain your point? You never mentioned anything about 20.10 and as I said before, that packages version is not directly tied to the kernel, as you discovered after taking the time to research yourself18:54

ash_worksi`pass` from PasswordStore uses a GPG key to encrypt your passwords; when you try to view them, it prompts your for your password to decrypt.

(like remove the limit and/or lockout time, or at least UP the limit)21:46

sarnoldmy wild guess without looking is that that probably requires modifying the tool and rebuilding it21:48
ash_worksiThinkT510: no, but I have been known to lock myself out of a server by mistyping my password more than once21:48
