ubottubewees: The kernel team supply continuous mainline kernel builds which can be useful for tracking down issues or testing recent changes in the Linux kernel. More information is available at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds01:22

ubottubewees: Impish Indri is the codename for Ubuntu 21.10. For technical support, see #ubuntu-next. For testing and QA feedback and help, see #ubuntu-quality.01:23
beweestomreyn: My Laptop uses Intel 11th generation with Iris igpu and in 5.10 adjusting the backlight is working only for newer kernel versions01:24
beweestomreyn: So you would recommend to better use 21.04 with the mainline kernel rather than 21.10 testing images?01:25
tomreynbewees: "in 5.10 [a kernel version] adjusting the backlight is working only for newer kernel versions"? i'm not sure i understand01:27
tomreynhirsute (Ubuntu 21.04) comes with kernel version 5.1101:28
tomreyngenerally speaking, if you have hardware functionality you strictly depend on, and which is too new to be supported on any ubuntu release but supported by newer kernel versions, then you could use a script to keep running the latest mainline kernels until there is support for it in ubuntu.01:30
tomreynthis isn't supported, but probably the best approach in this (rather rare) situation.01:31
beweestomreyn: I see, I will try that. I tried 21.04 already, thus 5.11 seems to not have my required drivers either01:32

blahboybazI really don't want some strangers printer on my laptop04:45
blahboybazSo am I forced to have some printer on my machine? What happens if I uninstall cups? Probably a bunch of other stuff is dependend on it and the system breaks? Or if I get a printer later that I want to use I can't because I don't have cups on my machine? If I reinstall it to use my own printer later then it just installs that strangers printer again like - ha ha! gotcha again! right?04:50

alkisgdob1:  Well, these are my polkit/policykit related packages on Ubuntu MATE 20.04; see if some of them help: https://termbin.com/rpkw07:28

dob1what is dex?07:37
ducasseit runs .desktop files, but can also handle autostart xdg items07:37
alkisgducasse: I've no idea about i3, you think it doesn't run /etc/xdg/autostart at all? Because that one wouldn't run anyway, I bet it has a OnlyShowIn=GNOME or something in it...07:38

tomreynpersonally, if i needed something graphical for package management (luckily i don't), i would still very much prefer it to "ubuntu-software", just because it lists all the packages, and i can tell what's provided by apt vs snap13:03

=== Guest46 is now known as pizzaburger
pizzaburgertomreyn: got that bootable USB. Should I still try to run that "smartctl -x" command?13:42
tomreynpizzaburger: it is just one theory, there can be other reasons. you likely have a broken file system on / now. if the file system isn't that broken you could still have booted to recovery, but from what i understand that's no longer so. so you need to boot off a working live system and repair from there.13:43
pizzaburgertomreyn: Thanks for the insight! Any pointers on where should I start with the repair?13:44
tomreynyes, do the smartctl -x (or just -a) against the disk you normally boot off first. review it, or have it reviewed here (pastebin). then, if it looks ok, run fsck against then normal installations' root file system.13:44
tomreynpizzaburger: note that you have two major problems here: no (complete, current, proven restorable) backups, EOL system (we would not normally support you here with this). make sure you fix both of those as soon as you can.13:47

varaindemianhow can I install python3 32-bit on ubuntu 18.04/20.04 64-bit?14:36
hajonnestomreyn, ok the path to the directory where the execution should take place?14:37
tomreynhajonnes: yes, that's what i mean. i hope PAth= is correct, i haven't verified this14:38
hajonnestomreyn, I'll check it out. Thanks for your help! :)14:39
tomreynhajonnes: it is correct according to https://specifications.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/desktop-entry-spec-latest.html#recognized-keys14:40
tomreynalso note that package desktop-file-utils provides the command desktop-file-validate14:41
hajonnestomreyn, thanks a lot. I did not find that. :)14:41
tomreynyou're welcome14:42
tomreynpizzaburger: so i think what you need to do is to recover a zfs pool. you should be able to read up on how to do this online.14:42
pizzaburgertomreyn: Yeah, I encrypted the drive with ZSF.14:43
tomreynencryption, too?14:43
SnoopJvaraindemian, you can install the i386 architecture version of the package (i.e. `python3:i386`), or you could build your own (I like using pyenv for this)14:43
pizzaburgertomreyn: Was a brand new way to encrypt when 20.10 launched.14:43
tomreynpizzaburger: and certainly marked as "experimental"?14:43
pizzaburgertomreyn: can't recall, but would say no. Would they include experimental features as default options?14:44
tomreynnot as default, but as experimental features, yes14:45
pizzaburgertomreyn: ok, googling on how to recover a zfs pool. Thanks!14:47
hajonnestomreyn, the desktop-file-validate say "Encoding=" is deprecated, could I just remove it then?14:49
varaindemianSnoopJ: installed it with sudo apt python3:i386 how can I see that this is what it uses?14:49
hajonnestomreyn, I think it is ok.14:50
tomreynhajonnes: yes14:53
tomreynvaraindemian: dpkg -L python3:i386 | grep -E '^(/usr)/s?bin/'   should list executables provided by the package you installed14:58
hajonneshow can I copy or write a path in to nautilus?14:59
SnoopJvaraindemian, I'm not sure, I've never done multi-arch, don't even know if you can have multiple arch versions of the same package installed simultaneously.14:59

SnoopJto the first question: 'GStreamer libraries from the "bad" set' https://packages.ubuntu.com/hirsute/libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-0 the base/good/bad/ugly division is from gstreamer itself apparently: https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/documentation/additional/splitup.html15:24

SnoopJwonko[m], can you paste the output of `apt show libgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0-0` ?15:30

SnoopJah, and so it is15:31
wonko[m]what the hell is madlinux?15:31

logranrunOneDrive I mean17:13
logranrunso on the control pannel it has "Online Accounts". It looks like google drive is integrated into the file explorer. I am trying to figure out how one drive works since there is a microsoft option, but I don't see the drive mounted anywhere17:21
rfmlogranrun, I installed the "onedrive" package to use it. I seem to remember something about it not working on 20.04, though (I built it from source there.)  On 21.04 it works OK except a compiler bug makes it dump core on exit.  Setting it up is a bit complicated too, read the docs17:26

oldgalileomcon: Pretty sure it's `adapt`?17:37
logranrunguess i am stuck with onedrive, the down side to that was you basically have to keep a mirror of the onedrive stored locally I think, or at least the part you use17:38
ioriai think he's looking for debootstrap and schroot17:39
ioriamcon,  ^ unless you want to install a vm or lxc17:41
mconoldgalileo: No, AFAIK "adapt" makes some old software run in the current distribution. My need is the reverse: I have a build environment (not part of ubuntu distribution) expecting to run under Ubuntu 16.04. It generally works also with current (20.04), but in certain instances fails (e.g.: while compiling some selinux packages).17:42
mconCurrent "solution" is to run in a VirtualBox VM, but that is very heavy.17:42
mconI seem to recall there's some Hypervisor expecially tuned to run older Ubuntu releases and that Ubuntu maintains a series of "ready-to-use images. Did I dream?17:44

toddchajonnes: https://www.configserverfirewall.com/ufw-ubuntu-firewall/ubuntu-check-firewall-status-ufw/17:52
tomreynhajonnes: since the xmind 'executable' is a likely a .jar file (a java archive, actually a zip archive), there's a good chance you'll find an icon sized image file in it. idally, icons and logos should be in SVG format, but several other formats (such as those you mentioned) will work, too. the .Desktop file can point to an image file you placed on disk. common locations to store such files are /usr/share/icons/ and ~/.local/share/icons/17:59

tomreynlogranrun: from what i remember, there are two usable onedrive clients available for Linux. Both of which do not immediately provide a GUI (but i think they describe ways to integrate with existing GUIs, such as GNOME Files / Nautilus). The one that's in Ubuntu (also available in never releases from a PPA), and another one. At least the first one is configurable. While it defaults to the 'full mirror' approach you discussed, later versions can18:29
tomreynalso run in the 'only access over the network' (and maybe also the 'only mirror what's regularly used') approach. The second implementation actually defaults to this approach.18:29

hajonnestomreyn, I'm not sure, "setxkbmap eu" results in the eurkey keyboard layout. So it must exist in some package. it also says on the homepage that it is included in xkeyboard-config 2.12 and newer. But I do not know more than that.19:22

Lutinhi guys... I'm wondering what resoved uses by default as its (forward) DNS servers... it seems to use my local ISP's ones but I don't see them define anywhere22:07
toddcLutin: if we assume you are using default dhcp service DNS is confiured in you router all traffic goes from laptop to router then to the internet and external dns22:14
toddcLutin: you can overide any of those settings22:15
Lutintoddc true...  indeed... can resolved use the rootservers ?22:16
Lutintoddc yeah I know but didn't thought of DHCP :)22:16
toddcLutin: if you change your laptop to say google DNS you will not find other local computers on your network so normally we set DNS at the router level22:20
Lutintoddc yeah but this is a public VPS... that's why22:20
toddcLutin: I like to set all my computers/servers to static IP and gateways routes ect then I do not need dhcp service --more stable22:23
Lutintoddc yeah I agree but this is pretty solid22:23
Lutintoddc I wonder how I can make resolved use the rootservers22:24
toddcedit /etc/netplan/01-netcfg.yaml to your liking22:25
TJ-Lutin: you should never use the root servers as resolver22:26
LutinTJ- why not ? what do you think a real resolver uses ?22:26
Lutintoddc I was hoping that resolved had those servers in hardcoded22:27
toddcLutin:   https://ubuntu.com/server/docs/network-configuration   no --  I agree with TJ- I avoid it/always used a local DNS that forwards to a external22:30
TJ-root servers provide hints but they're not intended for recursive resolving for clients22:31
TJ-If it is a VPS then using the ISP's recursive resolvers, or a public service like Cloudflare, Quad9, or similar, is the best option22:32
Lutintoddc not when you are not in control of the DNS servers... powerdns recursor can fix it also22:32

TJ-use bind as a recursive resolver then it's all yours, no forwarder22:43
