Guest5292I really prefer the debian-installer over the kubuntu live installer. Is it possible to use the debian-installer over the kubuntu live installer?12:37

iomari891greetings, are there any alternatives to the kde repo: http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu/? It keeps failing when I try to add kde to a Ubunt desktop.18:26
Mekanecki guess you first have to install the KDE Plasma desktop on Ubuntu and then add the backports PPA to update to the latest Plasma packages iomari89118:58
Mekaneckalso which Ubuntu release are you talking about?18:59
tomreynMekaneck: we're talking about this in #ubuntu - I originally referred iomari891 here because at this point i was not aware this was originally an ubuntu installation, not kubuntu.19:02
icichello, i need some help fixing this sound problem i'm having. is this the right place to ask?19:03
tomreynicic: it's a good place to ask if you're running a supported kubuntu release (but i may not be able to help myself)19:04
icicwell I am running kubuntu 20.04 lts version. The issue I'm having is that my speakers are not being detected, pavucontrol shows a dummy device. I notice that if i boot 5.4.0-26-generic in grub it works fine, but when it boots to the latest it stops working. I don't know where to go since on a previous build I didn't have this issue before19:06
tomreynwhich kernel is "the latest" then?19:08
icicon my machine it's booting to 5.11.0-27-generic19:08
tomreynright, that's the latest HWE kernel19:10
Mekanecktomreyn: hence i asked which release of Ubuntu he's running. IIRC the backports only apply to 21.04 of Kubuntu.19:11
tomreynicic: what pavucontrol shows as a dummy device will be the audio chipset, not your boxes19:11
tomreynicic: there's a script called alsa-info which you should already have available. it also comes with a self-update mechanism. you can use this script to gather information on your sysconfiguration / hardware and have it upload it for sharing19:12
icicsorry, not sure how to upload on irc19:13
iomari891Mekaneck: do I need the backports to install kde-full?19:15
tomreynMekaneck: iomari891 runs hirsute according to their 'apt update' output https://termbin.com/tktc19:15
tomreynicic: the scriptcan do the upload for you19:15
tomreynit would just return a http address you could then post here19:16
Mekaneckiomari891: no.... the backports ppa are only to update plasma to it's latest version19:16
iomari891BTW, Ubuntu 21.0419:17
Mekaneckso i read19:17
iomari891ok. that may solve my problem.19:18
iomari891but that will have to be on Monday. My friend has shut down and gone home. Thanks for your help. Both of you.19:19
icici just paste the link here then?19:19
Mekaneckiomari891: if you want to run kubuntu on top of ubuntu: sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop     If you only want KDE Plasma then:  sudo apt install kde-full19:21
tomreyniomari891: this seems to be a known kernel bug https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20855519:34
ubottubugzilla.kernel.org bug 208555 in Drivers "No sound from speakers using Realtek ALC287" [Normal, New]19:34
tomreynicic: see the two lines above, this was actually for you19:37
icicI'm not used to seeing bug reports like this, but am I right in assuming that this is a known bug?19:38
tomreynicic: i suggest reporting the bug to Ubuntu (ubuntu-bug alsa), then using the GA (5.4) kernel for now until it's fixed in a newer HWE kernel version19:39
tomreynicic: my interpretation is this is a bug known to the Linux kernel developers who handle sound chipset drivers. I assume this may not yet be known to the Ubuntu kernel developers.19:40
tomreynit would be good to help make the Ubuntu kernel developers aware also so that they can prepare a fix, too.19:41
icicokay, do i need an account to file a bug report?19:42
