LebelaI have recorded some videos using "open camera" (an app) on my Android phone05:52
Lebelanow, after transferring them onto my Linux computer, they cannot be played05:52
Lebela"moov atom not found"   is the error05:53
Lebelaso, I naturally used "untrunc" to fix it,  but,  even untrunc failed fixing it.05:53
LebelaThe main thing I wonder about is:  Why can the video be played on Android but not on Linux?05:53
Lebelait plays just fine on my phone05:53
Lebelathe md5 sums are identical on my phone and my computer05:53
LebelaI tried it on both,  Ubuntu and Debian - it fails on both Linux distros05:56
Lebelabut it always works on Android05:56
alkisgMissing codecs. Try playing them with VLC.06:06
Lebelaalkisg, not working in vlc, mpv, ffplay06:07
Lebelaalkisg, the codec is h264 (in theory)06:07
alkisgLebela: go to file information and see the codec06:07
alkisgErhm. And what's the vlc output if you run it from the console?06:07
Lebelamoov atom not found06:08
Lebelawhy is the moov atom working on Android then?  And not on linux?06:08
Lebelathat makes no sense.  And the md5sums are identical06:08
alkisgApart from that message, do you see anything else?06:08
Lebelanothing worth mentioning06:09
Lebelait's definitely the moov atom06:09
alkisgTry to play it with vlc, then paste all the output to pastebin06:09
Lebelaalkisg, the output only contains stuff I'd need to censor (e.g. filenames)06:12
Lebelathe ONLY errors are the moov atom and:  "Unknown error 1094995529"06:12
Lebelaand this unknown error also refers to the moov atom06:12
alkisgWhat's the output of ffprobe /path/to/video ?06:12
Lebelamoov atom not found06:13
LebelaInvalid data found when processing input06:13
Lebelawhy can't untrunc write to my external HD ?06:14

iomari891greetings, will installing patheon desktop in any way conflict with kubuntu? latest version of both.07:59

schuelermine[m]Does Ubuntu use GDM?14:16
lotuspsychjeschuelermine[m]: ubuntu desktop with gnome uses gdm314:18
schuelermine[m]How does Ubuntu apply a theme to GDM? I want to reproduce it in a different context but all I can find are instructions for pre-Gnome-3 using gnome-appearance-properties14:21
lotuspsychje!themes | schuelermine[m]14:21
ubottuschuelermine[m]: Find your themes at: http://www.gnome-look.org - http://art.gnome.org - http://www.kde-look.org - http://kubuntu-art.org - http://freecode.com/tags/theme - http://www.guistyles.com - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/ - Also see !changethemes and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuEyeCandy14:21
schuelermine[m]I know how to apply themes to the desktop using User Themes, but how do you do it in GDM?14:22
lotuspsychjeschuelermine[m]: use at own risk, https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2021/10/login-screen-background-ubuntu-21-10/14:23
Maikschuelermine[m]: it's probably not that easy with GDM314:23
schuelermine[m]Yeah, but how does Ubuntu do it by default? Is GDM compiled differently?14:24
waltmanSo there's no way to fix this aside from logging out or killing processes?14:25
waltmanHonestly I've got workarounds to access the file and I'd rather not have to log out if I don't have to.14:26
waltmanI wasn't sure if this was an actual bug or if there was some way reset it. Sounds like it's a bug.14:27
Maikschuelermine[m]: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1227070/how-do-i-change-login-screen-theme-or-background-in-ubuntu-20-0414:27
Maikmaybe that helps14:27
schuelermineThat doesn’t help, since that’s a case where gdm is already configured to look at the theme under “Yaru”. How do you change the theme *to* Yaru from Adwaita in the first place?14:28
Maikschuelermine[m]: maybe best to search for it on the web, i don't know the answers to that. :)14:31
lotuspsychjeschuelermine: to easy theme management, install gnome-tweaks14:32
schuelermine[m]On gdm?14:32

dirtcastlei was trying to install gentoo. I'm new to linux itself but I wanted to learn step by step slowly and be able to use it.  when I installed ubuntu I followed a yt tutorial . there was an extended partion of 100 gb and 20 gb was give to root and 80gb for home. when I used parted print It showed 3 seperate partition. I thought that 100gb was not being used and deleted it. in the end I saw the start and end of extended and root and home and I realised the17:27
dirtcastlewere inside extended and I just deleted it17:27

dirtcastleI'm trying to solve it. i downloaded testdisk but I'm still clueless17:28
EriC^^dirtcastle: no need, you only need to recreate the extended partition the same place as before17:29
EriC^^dirtcastle: can you type 'sudo parted -ls | nc termbin.com 9999' and paste the result?17:30
dirtcastleI did that cannot get it exactly right. I have the parted print free output before I deleted.17:30
EriC^^nice please paste that, as well as the current parted -l output17:30
EriC^^dirtcastle: ok, type 'sudo fdisk /dev/sda'17:34

dirtcastlemy bad https://paste.rs/N6N17:47
dirtcastle🤔 is smtg wrong17:50
EriC^^yeah i dunno what went wrong, the free space is huge between them, anyways i think it's better to use testdisk as you said, i thought it was going to simpler partition layout, my bad17:52
EriC^^dirtcastle: quit fdisk without saving anything, then sudo apt-get install testdisk17:53
EriC^^then type sudo testdisk /dev/sda17:53

EriC^^if you want you could make them primary partitions18:02
EriC^^you could leave them P18:02
EriC^^just remembered18:03
dirtcastleok got it. if I leave them as logical will it become a part of a extended partition automatically? cause I think u need a extended partition and only inside that u can have a logical one.18:04
dirtcastlefor now I will leave them as P I don't mind tho.18:04
EriC^^yeah exactly, i dont know what testdisk would do, it does have an "E" i think for the extended but it doesnt seem to list it18:04

leftyfbboblamont: cat /etc/os-release | nc termbin.com 999922:27
boblamontleftyfb: what does that do?22:27
leftyfbboblamont: it will show us the release of ubuntu you are running22:28
Ravageyou can also just paste the output of "cat /etc/os-release". its one line22:28
Ravageoh its not.sorry22:28
boblamontleftyfb: i'm running 18.04.6 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.15.0-169-generic x86_64)22:28
Ravageboblamont: then you added external sources for PHP?22:29
Ravageon only PPA i know for that is ondrej22:29
boblamontthat's the one22:29
Ravageand that offers all version22:29
Ravageso remove all php8.1* packages22:29
Ravageinstall the php7.4 ones22:29
leftyfbboblamont: you'll want to purge the PPA and it's packages you used to install php. Then reinstall php7.2 from the official repo's. Anything else is unsupported22:29
Ravageor go back to what 18.04 offers22:30
Ravagebut in general the PPA should work fine too22:30
boblamontI need 7.3 or higher, is  that possible? 7.4 was working ok, except wordpress didn't see it22:30
Ravageits really as simple as "apt remove" and "apt install"22:31
leftyfbboblamont: if you need php7.4, I would recommend upgrading to Ubuntu 20.04 and get it from official sources22:31
Ravageyou must have followed some guide to do the updare22:31
leftyfbRavage: ppa-purge would be better22:31
Ravageif he wants 7.4 on 18.04 he will need the ppa22:32
leftyfbsure, get to a clean slate and then reinstall 7.4 from the unsupported PPA22:32
Ravagebut sure. upgrade to 20.04 is a good idea22:32
boblamontI don't care at this point, i'll take 7.2, how do I do ppa purge?22:32
leftyfbboblamont: apt list --installed |grep php | nc termbin.com 999922:33
=== yhirose is now known as yhirose3
Ravagethat is some mix of versions :)22:35
Ravage7.4 seems to be installed22:35
Ravagedo you run it on apache?22:35
Ravagethen use a2dismod22:35
Ravageto disable php 822:35
leftyfbboblamont: you have a sury.org ppa enabled22:36
Ravageand a2enmod to enable the 7.4 module22:36
boblamontRavage: whate exactly do I enter to dismod?22:37
Ravageafter an apache restart and a little luck your site should be up again22:37
Ravagea2dismod [enter]22:38
Ravageshows a list22:38
Ravagechoose the 8.1 module22:38
Ravagedo the same with a2enmod and php7.422:38
boblamontYour choices are: access_compat alias auth_basic authn_core authn_file authz_core authz_host authz_user autoindex deflate dir env filter mime mpm_prefork negotiation php7.2 proxy proxy_fcgi reqtimeout rewrite setenvif socache_shmcb ssl status22:39
Ravageso you should be still running php7.222:40
Ravageif you want 7.4 disable 7.2 and enable 7.422:40
boblamontthis is what killed the site a2enconf php8.1-fpm22:42
Ravagei dont see that module enabled22:43
Ravageoh its a config22:43
Ravagethen revert that22:43
Ravageand see if there is a 7.4-fpm config in a2enconf22:43
Ravagei dont know your original setup so this is kind of a guessing game now22:44
boblamontoh thank god, it worked22:44
Ravagegreat :)22:44
boblamontactually thank you guys, it was you, not a diety22:45
boblamontthere may yet be a thing, hold on... let me log in to the admin area22:45
boblamontyeah, wordpress still sees 7.2, not 7.422:46
Ravagefind out if you run php as fpm or with the apache module22:47
Ravageyou may have configured both22:47
Ravagei still see php7.2 i a2dismod22:47
Ravage*in a2dismod22:48
boblamontI didn't even have fpm installed but someone in the worfpress group said the I had to restart it to get wordpress to see that I went to 7.422:48
boblamontso I don't think i even need it, do I?22:49
Ravageok. then use a2disconf to remove all php configs22:49
Ravagedisable php7.2 in a2dismod22:49
Ravageand enable php7.4 in a2enmod22:49
boblamontI disabled 7.2 and enabled 7.4 and then got this in my wordpress Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress22:55
Ravageapt install php7.4-mysql22:55
Ravageand maybe check other modules in the requirements22:55
Ravagedont forget to restart apache22:55
Ravageusual suspects are mbstring, xml, curl, gd22:56
Ravageso make sure those are installed22:56
boblamontI need gd, there are some other optional ones22:57
boblamontgot gd, now it says the only stuff are optional22:59
boblamontI updated the plugin that wanted 7.3 or higher23:00
boblamontis there any reason not to install the optional modules?23:00
RavageGo for it23:01
boblamontmind if I ask what these do and if they really seem necessary? I'm not exactly feeling bold...23:02
RavageI think explaining PHP modules goes a little far for this channel. Google will give you a lot information about them. The ones I listed are safe to enable23:04
