Croranis there a better solution for adjusting mouse wheel speed in Ubuntu? imwheel sucks.00:35
Croranrequires obsolete and unavailable xorg fonts package, has proven security vulnerability, requires you to activate a window before scrolling it in order to apply the proper scroll multiplier for that application...00:36
lotuspsychje_Croran: there's an old revived bug on ubuntu's mouse scroll speed00:38
lotuspsychje_Croran: so maybe in the future, we will get lucky00:38
lotuspsychje_Croran: meanwhile you can try your browsers tweaks to scroll faster00:39

CroranSince !1962 exists, I'll probably have to rewrite everything. Sorry for disappointing you, but we'll probably have to rely on libinput hacks for the time being."00:50
Croranoops. i don't know how that ended up as multiple lines :(00:51
Croranhonestly i'd be happy with a libinput hack. unless he's just talking about imwheel.00:51
CroranI imagine someone could gain some noteriety by solving a 15-year-old bug that makes a noticeable change to basic user input haha00:53
CroranI wonder if the key is the 'high resolution' scrolling feature and just abandoning hardware that don't support said feature. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Libinput-1.20-rc101:04

mr_louSo, this problem seems to be back again now: https://superuser.com/questions/1271193/ubuntu-blu-ray-burner-suddenly-not-detected12:19
mr_louBut this time I can't seem to enter grub boot to select a different kernel. SHIFT isn't working, and pressing ESC results in the grub menu disappearing. Any other way to entering the grub menu?12:19
enycmr_lou: hrrm could try tapping down arrow, and changnig timing of when you hold down shift12:20
enycmr_lou: also -- are you sure you have multiple kernels installed still?12:21
enycmr_lou: if the kernel is the issue,  have you got a clear  kernel bugreport with ubuntu  and so it gets fixed in upstream kernel  etc. and won't keep relying on running and old kernel??12:21
mr_louenyc, No, only found out just now. And last time I reported, it just expired.12:23
mr_louTapping down arrow...  thanks, will try that now.12:24
mr_louNo didn't work. Also tried setting GRUB_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub and run sudo update-grub - but still no.12:30
mr_louTrying with string12:34
mr_louNope, GRUB_DEFAULT doesn't work.12:36
mr_louSo how to change kernel.12:36
mr_louAny command that reboots into grub?12:37
mr_louWithout needing to press/hold anything while booting?12:37
mr_louenyc, Well, finally managed to boot on a previous kernel. Didn't work. So I've made a post on superuser12:56
mr_louThanks anyway.12:56
mr_louI'm off again.12:56
BluesKajHi all14:39
mr_louWell it would seem the the latest kernels for Ubuntu 18.04 doesn't support burning. https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/wodim-cdrecord-cannot-open-scsi-drive-4175544944/14:41
mr_loulsmod | grep sr_mod14:41
mr_loulsmod | grep sg14:41
mr_louBoth shows nothing.14:41
mr_louWhy is burning support suddenly removed?14:42
Jeremy31mr_lou: That question is from 7 years ago14:44
Jeremy31sr_mod and sg are built into the kernel14:45
mr_loumkay... well, Ubuntu doesn't detect my burner anymore.14:46
mr_lou2nd time it has happened. Last time (3½ years ago) it was the kernel.14:46
mr_louWorkarround was to boot on an older kernel.14:46
mr_louWasn't fixed for a long time.14:46
JoeBKmr_lou, what version of ubuntu are you running?14:47
JoeBKmaybe you should consider upgrading14:48
mr_louUpdates usually mean a bunch of stuff isn't working.14:48
JoeBK20.04 has been out for a while14:48
mr_louBad experiences.14:48
mr_louNo time to fix things.14:49
JoeBKI burn using a windows program called imgburn.14:52
mr_louMe too14:53
mr_louThat's the only way I can burn blu-ray discs.14:53
mr_louI don't understand why there are no Linux apps that can burn blu-rays yet.14:53

aienaJoeBk: Bluetooth actually isn't a pain usually17:59
JoeBkthe key word there us "usually"17:59
aienaeven wifi usually isn't unless you have one particular chip or something funky. I remember my TP LInk dongle not working.17:59
aienaBut it worked on windows so then I knew it wasn;t a hardware issue. THen a lot of digging around and compiling the right driver and I got it working. But then wound up preferring LAN anyway18:00
aienaJoeBk: yes 'usually' BT is not a pain.18:01

coz_aiena, sounds about right %)18:08
coz_aiena, wacom driver seems more a developer problem18:10
aienacoz_: I had bought a new huion tablet for home and kept the wacom for work. I thought I might not get the huion runnig on linux but was extremely thrilled that with a custom driver built 90% of it works.18:10
aienacoz_: well wacom driver was just an example it can be a newer processor or a newer wifi module or anything18:10
coz_aiena, excellent, how does that brand of tablet compare?18:10
aienahuion is cheaper more features but the nib feel of wacom cannot be beaten18:11
coz_aiena, OK, I figured there would be a downside18:11
aienaI cannot afford this large a wacom at the price point of the huion18:11
coz_aiena, understood, I have a small one and a 9x12 wacom18:12
aienai would get no tilt with a wacom at this price so I am happy with both the products18:12
aienaI bought the Wacom One for office. I had the Wacom Bamboo before that was the best.18:12

quantum_I was getting lots of zfs errors on an array before I installed Ubuntu.  I don't know whether it's the disks or the zfs filesystem.19:49
JoeBkquantum_, to run disks you hit the super key and type "disks" in the box.19:49
quantum_Seems like a perfectly simple question.19:49
gordonjcpJoeBk: doesn't that just partition disks?19:50
Ravagequantum_: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Smartmontools19:50

quantum_"Super" key?  What's that?  CentOS for 18 years.19:50
JoeBkgordonjcp, he wanted to run disks.19:50
gordonjcpquantum_: it's the same as the Super key in Centos19:50
quantum_Ravage: You can run an elementary test using dd bu writing /dev/zero or /dev/random.19:51
JoeBkquantum_, it the windows key.  I don't think that is going to help you anyway.19:51
quantum_Never heard of a Super key.19:51

ogralook for "gnome-disks" on CLI19:53

TheLinuxNerdquantum_, :-D19:53
ograwell, then i have no clue ... perhaps #kubutu does19:53

scortal, would it be worth upgrading ubuntu19:56
gordonjcpquantum_: the Super key is these days generally defined as the Windows Flag key19:56
Ravagescortal: its free. so probably yrd19:56
scortal22.04 any good?19:56
gordonjcpquantum_: but, previously it might have been Alt Gr, or any other random generally-not-used key on a PC keyboard19:56
quantum_ogra: Thanks for the input.  :[19:56
ograscortal, peas take such things to #ubuntu-discuss or #ubuntu-offtopic19:57
gordonjcpquantum_: it's only been a thing for about 30 or 40 years19:57
gordonjcpquantum_: anyway if your disks are failing don't diagnose them, back them up then diagnose them19:57
ograquantum_, btw, i think the package name is gnome-disk-utility (the CLI command is gnome-disks)19:57
quantum_It is my backups array.  I've started over, abandoning the perinially busted Fedora.19:57
gordonjcpquantum_: "perennially", 'cos "perinially" sounds *ruuuude*19:58
gordonjcpquantum_: of course that may have been exactly what you meant19:58
quantum_Ugh, Thank You ogra for the package name.19:59
quantum_Fedora is also peritinially busted.20:00
gordonjcpquantum_: Fedora is so bad it gave you peritonitis?20:00
quantum_Well gnome-disks only checks smart data and benchmarks.  It doesn't do actual tests.  I'll resort to dd.20:03
JoeBkI think there is a standalone disk diagnostic program.20:04
quantum_At least the SMART data reports the drives are good.20:05

LoUDcLoUDJeremy31, 02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter22:04
sybaritensurely the standard behaviour of a ubuntu distro booted off usb, from a machine that also has an internal HD, is to show that HD on the desktop so you get a chance to mount it?22:28
Bashing-omsybariten: Yes - is there hardware issues ? what shows ' sudo fdisk -lu ' ?22:31
Jeremy31LoUDcLoUD: I am not sure why it isn't working.  There is a generic entry in the source code for realtek bluetooth devices that should work22:32
JoeBkLoUDcLoUD, have you tried contacting the people who made the thing?22:33
tomreynsybariten: this may depend on the "ubuntu distro" you're referring to, as well.22:33
sybaritenBashing-om: well, it's there, it's a 300 gb on sda, i guess sda2 is the one i'm interested in....   but the drive makes occasional clicking noises, like once every hour. But i'm not sure that is related to my actual problem which is a boot problem22:35
sybariten(i think i had the clicking noises for a long time on this machine)22:35
sybaritentomreyn: oh, ok. Yeah it was just my memory that it usually is visible and one can just click it.22:35
leftyfbsybariten: clicking isn't good. In ubuntu, try to mount it while running this in another terminal: dmesg -Tw22:36
sybaritenleftyfb: no i know. It's often a cry for help. But i won't store anything important on this drive, it's kind of a test computer for different things22:40
sybaritenleftyfb: nothing too interesting i'm guessing: [Sun Mar  6 22:41:46 2022] EXT4-fs (sda2): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)22:42
tomreynsybariten: unmount all file systems from this disk, install smartmontools, run     sudo smartctl -x /dev/sda    and share the output on a pastebin.22:44
tomreynsybariten: and tell us which 'ubuntu distro' you're running there.22:45
sybaritenthink its 2022:46
leftyfbsybariten: cat /etc/os-release | nc termbin.com 999922:46
sybaritenVERSION="20.04.2 LTS (Focal Fossa)"22:47
sybaritenso smartctl is run on the whole disk and not a partition?22:47

sybaritenanywho, now i gotta figure out how i can make this machine boot this disk (as it used to do). Right now i am getting a "boot failure" message. I'll need to make sure this is really the case, i suppose, and i'll come back here....22:52
gordonjcpah, this is so annoying22:54
gordonjcpif I've got my phone connected to my PC, it only gives me an option for "PTP"22:55
gordonjcpI guess there's no way to actually get files off it?22:55
gordonjcpwithout using pointy-clicky stuff22:55
tomreynsybariten: the 'smart' report looks fine, meaning no serious problems have been recorded. you could optionally run a short self test (-t short) and see whether that changes things.22:59
sybaritentomreyn: thanks for lookingn at it23:04
sybaritenso i don't know much about boot loaders but i23:06
sybaritenso i don't know much about boot loaders but i'm suspecting this machine has a broken boot loader somehow. Is GRUB still what's used for a fairly modern version of ubuntu?23:07
sybaritenAnd if so can i somehow do something from inside a USB booted distro, to write out something new to disk perhaps?23:08
tomreynyes and yes. what you'd need to do may depend on how the mainboard is setup to boot, tough.23:11
tomreyni.e. whether its classic bios or current uefi booting23:12
tomreynthe fdisk output from earlier may hint on this23:13
sybaritentomreyn: aha?23:16

Ravageif you are currently running from a live usb you can try these commands: https://p.haxxors.com/y2cc7uh4.txt23:32
bleican I see all files read in a subdirectory for a period of time, ie, while a program runs?23:43
