MrMobiusis there any way to send myself a notification when my battery is getting low on a laptop running command line only?03:49
leftyfbMrMobius: yes03:50
RootDetHi all,03:53
RootDetI am having a problem with the desktop install. I have tried 20.0.4 and 20.0.3 lts. 3 different flashd rives, one is brand new out of the box, and now also 3 different target nvme disk, one i just bought today, but all new. I keep getting an error that the source file does not match the target03:54
RootDetThis seems to be rather or not i select the network option, or anything. I am at my witts end what to do, becausde there is anything else to replace here except motherboard.03:55
leftyfbRootDet: redownload the iso's. Also, try a different usb port on the desktop03:55
MrMobiusleftyfb, great. can you point me in the right direction? everything I'm finding is notify-send, zenity, or other stuff GUI based03:55
RootDetI've done that too, i tried rufus and blanche for the usb install03:55
RootDetthe checksum even matches03:56
leftyfbMrMobius: what sort of notification do you want?03:56
leftyfbRootDet: you tried different ports?03:56
RootDetYep. Case ports and direct ports on the motherboard03:57
leftyfbRootDet: test your memory03:57
MrMobiusleftyfb, something on the screen? im not sure how this problem is usually solved. printing text into whatever tmux window im in probably wont work very well so im open to ideas03:59
RootDetleftyfb what you think be the easiest way for that?03:59
RootDetnot sure if like memtest is built into the install cd or not03:59
RavageRootDet: https://www.memtest86.com/download.htm04:00

NeoFAT32Is it better to use xorg driver for Nvidia or the proprietary driver ?07:01
HestonNeoFAT32, you'll get a massive increase in performance with the proprietary07:12
NeoFAT32Probably but I'm running a second screen on the motherboard GPU so it's an Intel HD Graphics.07:13
NeoFAT32Do you have a solution to improve its performances ?07:13
NeoFAT32Because if what they said was right, it's running it through the kernel.07:13
Hestonintel has open source linux drivers so it should be decent07:14
NeoFAT32So when I move a windows on this screen, it's working like I just installed windows without updating drivers.07:14
NeoFAT32What's that driver ?07:14
Hestondepends on your hardware. I dont remember the names07:14
NeoFAT32i915 ? 530 ?07:16
Hestonmost likely i915, check lsmod07:17
NeoFAT32I find it clearly stupid to improve Nvidia drivers while most of computers are running Intel CPU/GPU. Quit strange that they improved Nvidia drivers before Intel ones, at least, it's using the kernel.07:17

frost-corei booted a openSUSE usb then got to rescue mode, and then i booted up cfdisk to resize my ubuntu partition for another os, now i did write and did yes, and when i reboot i see that im on busybox11:53
oerheksafter resizing, one must edit grub with the new UUID's11:53

xheimlichI'm often writing things like $ for pid in $(pgrep brave; do sudo renice -5 $pid; done12:34
xheimlichis there some way to have processes started by a certain command or binary already reniced?12:34
xheimlichshort of aliasing which doesn't work eg from dmenu12:35
Ravagerun it with nice12:35
xheimlichor cron jobs. for some reason I can never get cron to work, but that's neither here nor there.12:35
xheimlichRavage: yes. I've done things like alias code=nice +1 code12:36
xheimlichbut I'd like code (actually no, just brave-browser) to start reniced by some lower-level configuration that I don't know whether exists.12:36
xheimlich(I don't usually launch GUI apps from the terminal)12:37
Ravagecreate a bash script with the nice command. add it to your menu12:37
xheimlichthat's not a horrible idea.12:38
xheimlichnot what I wanted but fixes some of my issues short-term.12:38
xheimlichThere are other programs that open the browser though.12:39
Ravageyou can use alacarte or any other menu editor to create or edit items12:39
xheimlichI don't use jupyter notebook, but things like that. streamlit. optuna-dashboard.12:39
Ravagethen call the bash script brave-browser and put it in .local/bin12:39
xheimlichI should have prefaced that I don't use the default ubuntu gui? The Ubuntu login screen comes up if I quit spectrwm, but otherwise it goes directly into a tiling wm.12:40
xheimlichanyway. there's the issue of other programs that open the browser. forget the menu for a minute.12:40
xheimlich(what Ravage said actually fixes like 40% of my issues and I'm finding IRC support quite good, 5/5 stars.)12:44
Ravageyou can also try12:46
Ravagesudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/x-www-browser x-www-browser /your/custom/brower-runscript.sh 012:46
Ravageto add your new launch script as a browser in the system12:47
Ravage0 should already make it default but it also appears in the system settings at default apps12:47
Ravageso you can just select it at the default browser there12:48

sybaritenEriC^^: ah, ok. Well, i think i messed up.  :-/14:56
EriC^^sybariten: what's up?14:56
sybaritenEriC^^: I tgried using some BIOS reset choices in the BIOS .... which have very confusing names, if you ask me. And now it's doing a really weird BIOS loop, as it seems. It beeps upon start... it shows American Megatrends red triangle.... screen goes black and the monitor loses signal, then it soon beeps again, for a restart. Over and over14:57
sybaritenEriC^^: did you see the album of bios photos i sent the other day?14:58
EriC^^yeah i did14:59
sybaritenEriC^: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Ne4Vw9YGVJLg2tBo7    same gallery is updated with a boot menu now at the end, i can get to that one (or to BIOS) . It seems to offer the USB memory both as a flash memory and a HD ?15:00
sybaritenI'm mentally preparing for if i need to open this machine and start looking at cables (which absolutetly shouldnt have come out of place all of a sudden) and removing some CMOS battery or something15:01
EriC^^sybariten: try starting the usb flash as UEFI15:03
EriC^^the picture before the last one is what it's currently showing? the triangle and stuff?15:03
EriC^^sybariten: it says B2 at the bottom, google says "b2 error means either problem with GPU or legacy ROM problem/setting in place."15:05
EriC^^sybariten: it says "Before anything else you may want to check that BIOS is set to UEFI mode, and that any legacy mode such as "Legacy ROM" is not enabled."15:06
EriC^^sybariten: try going to the 2nd menu "advanced" and look under "graphics configuration"15:07
EriC^^sybariten: or maybe 'internal device configuration' for lenovo it seems under "devices & i/o ports" menu15:09
sybaritenEriC^^: where did you see B2 ?15:13
sybaritenoh, right15:13
sybaritenby the megatrends... it never occurred to me that this might be an error. In fact that picture was taken before this loop thing i have now, and while i only had the "boot failure" thing, but still important to look into i guess15:14
sybariteni mean, i may still have that B2 thing, didnt look for it. messing with a monitor setup here so i shall not need to switch so much back and forth  :)15:15
sybaritenEriC^^: ok, phew. Between a diaper change and _another_ computer with display/BIOS issues, i now should have a better working situation....15:59
sybaritenSo, yeah, the B2 is still there now when i turn the computer on and see the Megatrends screen.... but shortly after that the dislay loses its signal and you can tell that the PC will do a restart.16:01
sybaritenI can go into BIOS... i have a handful of settings under graphics configuration16:02
howudodatthis isn't necessarily an ubuntu question, but I have a question on rsync.   I use this command to copy files from my local dev machime to my web server.  it changes the group owner to www-data but not the user.  Any ideas? rsync -avogPO -M--fake-super --chown=www-data:www-data16:02
sybaritenthere are also some choices under Internal Device Configuration, but they really sound unrelated to any problems, to me: audio condroller, well maybe HDMI codec then, bluetooth, lan controller, lan remote boot, wlan, multicard, high precision timer...16:05
EriC^^sybariten: anything about "legacy rom" anywhere in the options?16:07
sybaritenwhat i dont understand though is first, how I should as you say " try starting the usb flash as UEFI" and second, how i should "check that BIOS is set to UEFI". I cant really see any settings for that...16:07
EriC^^also what happens if you choose 'uefi usb' in the boot menu?16:07
EriC^^sybariten: in the boot menu you showed press uefi usb option16:07
EriC^^ https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM-JKLVGquFVt6TPd1Odj6zI1pg7SPVq9mlG8ntox-Iy9zd47On5Z7cNK7fbe69HaYUtZhhCOLUf549HjLK6laRJuQEjYAB8NrdTFU6eIP0_pKoPAWAQIqbpeDOPBPlyInt4m1vBU_xmxuLiIKKyMD-UKsv64Q=w879-h659-no?authuser=016:08
sybaritenEriC^^: i dont think so but i'll go through them all. I wish i could find a bios emulator online to show you, sometimes they exist. Or at least screenshots of every single page, but i dont even know how to refer to this bios16:08
sybaritenok illl try uefi USB in the boot menu16:08
sybaritenEriC^^: if i do the UEFI USB Flash MemoryPMAP choice, it doesnt really access the memory afterwards anyhow as it seems.... cause the usb memory has an LED, which doesnt light up then. It just waits a couple of seconds and does its restart...16:11

Sven_vB"too old" = unaffected16:17
oerheksSven_vB, yes16:17
oerheksregression took place after that, AFAIK16:18
EriC^^sybariten: does the pc have a gpu? maybe it needs reseating, also the ram perhaps, according to google 1 beep on american megatrends means 'dram refresh failure' which is bad ram, maybe reseating the gpu/ram might help16:24
sybaritenEriC^^: but you know what, i have a feeling the beep isnt really an error code, i feel like thats just how the machine always shows that it's been turned on16:25
sybariteni may be wrong. But i do remember always having that beep as long as i've had the mahince....16:25
jhutchinsI suppose you could pull a module and compare how it behaves just to confirm.16:26
jhutchinsSwapping modules between the slots is an effective way to reseat them (and move the error if you're able to track it).16:27
EriC^^oh ok sybariten16:28
sybaritenAnd i mean its quite obvious that i sort of changed/screwed everything when i chose "restore user defaults" and also "load setupd defaults" from the BIOS. Thats exactly when i set it into this loop of never booting the USB memory16:28
sybaritenjhutchins: ok16:28
sybaritenbut what do you make of this?  https://www.manualslib.com/manual/246285/Fujitsu-Lifebook-A3040.html?page=21   Not the same BIOS, but i definitely have the same situation; the "removable drives" has an exclamation mark.16:38
sybaritenDoesnt sound good if i want to boot ubuntu from usb16:38
sybaritenall usb ports enabled though, in the USB menu ....16:39
jhutchinsHow old is the motherboard?  Is there a "Secure Boot" option in the BIOS?16:39
sybaritenno i havent been able to find that jhutchins .... been looking for that before. And the MB seems to be from 201116:41
sybaritenoh well i think i need to get some air. I might come back later and see if anyone has any ideas. Thanks so far guys!16:49
clarkkI'm running Ubuntu 20.04 with Gnome 3.36.8.  All of a sudden, today, gnome-shell has started using 100% CPU. When this happens, it takes 1 minute to do every single action, which means shutting down all my apps and rebooting takes about half an hour. I've had to do this three times today17:10
clarkkCan anyone suggest what could suddenly cause this (I haven't made any changes), if there's anything that is most likely to be the cause, and how I can troubleshoot it?  Have people been reporting similar issues a lot recently?17:10
clarkkI've disabled all my gnome extensions, in case one of them has caused this, but I hadn't updated them in ages, so would be surprised if it's them17:12
EriC^^sybariten: in which order did you do the load stuff, it could be that the 'load user defaults' put some wrong stuff from a saved defaults, maybe try 'load optimized defaults' or so again? did you setup the pc initially? maybe there is some setting the person who assembled the pc had to use?17:13
EriC^^sybariten: btw is this a laptop or pc? it might help to remove the battery, press the power button for 5-10secs to discharge everything and then reassemble17:14

sybaritenit is a PC, a mini version that has a smaller footprint than a mousepad. And i believe it's somewhat tricky to open, can't even see the screws upon a quick inspection....  sigh20:32
oerheksthere is a bug, that your aps try to use the screen, while you told one app to go fill screen and in control20:32
oerhekssybariten, that is might be a lightweight pc, does not matter i guess20:33
bray90820oerheks: it's only certain apps20:33
oerheksoops, mixed up20:33
oerheksbray90820, on what desktop?20:33
bray90820Currently only seeing it with the virtualbox manager doesn't matter weather the VM is running or not20:33
sybaritenEriC^^: i dont think there is a load optimized defaults. Maybe I could find out some way to flash the bios to a factory version or something, with a usb stick. If not well then i'll just have to leave that machine at the moment... I found another old HP laptop to use as a test server20:34
bray90820ubuntu 20.04 gnome wayland and x1120:34
bray90820ubuntu 21.1020:34
oerheksi find only tricks to get vbox in full screen mode, not about the manager taking over20:37
bray90820It doesn't matter if teh VM is running even teh virtualbox VM manager open causes teh flicker20:37
oerheksfile a bug with this behavior?20:40

EriC^^sybariten: alright, no battery thing to remove?20:43
sybaritenEriC^^: i'm guessing there might be one on the inside, prolly terribly crammed... i just gotta figure out where the screws to open the chassi are!20:44
sybaritenEriC^^: hey whaddayaknow, here it is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj_HM6rgGak   so i guess they are under the rubber feet after all20:45
EriC^^sybariten: nice!20:50

MrMobiusany idea where to find the "Alternate CD" mentioned here? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/LowMemorySystems21:03
MrMobiusthere's nothing like that in the main or alternative downloads section for 20.0421:04
sarnoldI don't think that's existed for a while now21:06
MrMobiusso would ubuntu server be the next best thing?21:09
MrMobiusor maybe MinimalCD21:14
=== keypushe- is now known as keypusher
sarnoldMrMobius: yeah the server installer is probably smaller than the desktop installer, and it's certainly prepared to work on text consoles..21:20
sybaritenEriC^^: hmmm i found a better video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiQqtYxDe14 - what would you guess, could it be the round metal thing at the top at around 03:10? That looks like a coin?21:29
=== esv_ is now known as esv
EriC^^sybariten: sorry back now21:50
EriC^^sybariten: yeah that round metal thing is the cmos battery21:53
EriC^^you'd need to remove it, then short the bottom terminals with either of the metal clamps holding it in place21:54
Jeremy31A 2032 battery?21:54
jhutchinsMrMobius: Ubuntu is pretty much the opposite of a minimalist distro.22:06
jhutchinsMrMobius: What kind of hardware are you targeting that you want a small installation for?22:06
sybaritenEriC^^: alrite, thanks, i might look into that22:15
MrMobiusjhutchins, netbook with 1.1ghz celeron. 4gb ram so i could run a gui though i ssh into a server from windows so just looking to replicate that locally22:25
jhutchinsMrMobius: I won't recommend other distros in this channel, but a basic install using one of the alternative desktpps like lxde or xfce would probably work pretty well.22:27
jhutchinsMrMobius: You want to avoid starting out with the default Ubuntu version of the Gnome desktop and the support it requires.22:28
jhutchinsMrMobius: Some will recommend the Server distribution of Ubuntu - if you don't choose any services, then add desktop components as required that can be pretty light.22:28
MrMobiusjhutchins, ok thanks22:31
knaccchey peeps, can anyone sanity check this please? : I have a list of spam CIDRs I need to check an IP address against. The simple way would be: for each CIDR in the list, apply the CIDR mask to the IP and check if the result matches the CIDR prefix. For performance, I want to do: for each possible mask between 0 and 32 bits, apply each of those masks to the IP and then check if the result matches any23:08
knacccof the CIDR prefixes23:08
knacccbecause that's a quick hashtable lookup23:08
knaccci wonder if i'm missing something obvious which means i should do it the slower but simpler way23:09
NeoFAT32I cannot launch pulseaudio-equalizer.23:11
NeoFAT32Can someone help me, please ?23:11
NeoFAT32Agent !!23:11
knacccactually i just found the flaw in my method, never mind23:14
jhutchinsNeoFAT32: What did you try to do?  How did you try to do it?  What did you expect to happen?  What happened instead?23:21
NeoFAT32Sorry, I can't copy paste.23:31
NeoFAT32I'm using adiirc through wine23:31
NeoFAT32When I do it it makes the app bug and close23:31
NeoFAT32sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-equalizer23:31
NeoFAT32but i can't find it.23:31
sarnoldNeoFAT32: pulseaudio-equalizer is in universe on my focal machine; do you have universe enabled on your computer?23:34
NeoFAT32I don't know what's that.23:34
enigma9o7[m]I think they mean they installed it but dunno how to run it/use it.23:35
NeoFAT32It's installed but it doesn't appear in the app list.23:35
NeoFAT32I mean in the app page.23:35
Jeremy31NeoFAT32: try running> sudo apt update && sudo apt install pulseaudio-equalizer23:35
Jeremy31NeoFAT32: Ah you may have a different issue23:36
NeoFAT32So what should I do ?23:39
NeoFAT32Oh damn. It's working !23:42
NeoFAT32But how can I keep that window ?23:42
NeoFAT32Do I always have to enter this command ?23:42
MaikNeoFAT32: which distro are you using now?23:43
Maikok, wasn't sure because the last time you were on Mint iirc23:44
NeoFAT32Yeah I reinstalled it.23:44
NeoFAT32I really like mint but... I didn't know if the system was lagging due to the OS or not.23:45
NeoFAT32But I think it's the same.23:45
NeoFAT32I'm just lying to myself to keep Ubuntu to not reinstall Mint.23:45
NeoFAT32I spent 3 days trying to configure it all.23:45
Maikknow that we do not support mint here :)23:45
NeoFAT32But it's Ubuntu that I'm using atm.23:45
NeoFAT32So do I have to use that syntax to launch it again ?23:46
NeoFAT32Everytime ?23:46
Maikthen it's all good23:46
NeoFAT32Wait, are you Maik from Spotchat ?23:46
enigma9o7[m]You could create a shortcut or menu entry.  I'm not familiar with it, I just checked what binary was in the package.23:46
NeoFAT32    I can't even add it in favourites.23:48
sarnoldNeoFAT32: there's a desktop file on https://askubuntu.com/a/1363515/33812 -- try copy-pasting that as described and see if that makes it easier to work with23:50
NeoFAT32Ok but I don't really know how to use all of that.23:51
enigma9o7[m]Just read it.23:52
enigma9o7[m]The section you want says "create icon in applications menu"23:52
NeoFAT32So many times they were talking about .config/blabla in some tutorials, I don't know what's this23:52
NeoFAT32Ok but what's the .config ? Is that a folder ?23:52
enigma9o7[m]but its talking about ~/.local/share/applications23:52
NeoFAT32Ok thanks you.23:52
NeoFAT32But about this folder how can I find it ?23:52
NeoFAT32I was in the root with hidden files activated but I couldn't find this folder.23:53
=== Tom is now known as Guest4136
enigma9o7[m]although that instructions is having you launch it thru a script instead of directly, so better follow ti all if you want to use their way, if you dont understand it yourself.23:53
NeoFAT32Just tell me how I can understand all that ?23:54
enigma9o7[m]In you rfile manager, there should be drop down option somewher eto enable hidden files&folders.  Or just use ctrl+h23:54
enigma9o7[m]You can understand by reading.23:54
enigma9o7[m]Ask questions if something is unclear.23:54
NeoFAT32Do I have to create a file and copy all of that in a text file ?23:54
enigma9o7[m]After you read it twice.23:54
NeoFAT32Are these people don't know how to make .deb ? such a patch or something like this ?23:55
sarnoldit could be that whoever packaged it doesn't use a desktop environment and can just run whatever they want without those .desktop files around23:56
NeoFAT32.local/share/... ?23:56
NeoFAT32Where's that path ?23:56
enigma9o7[m]I would have thought they would include a desktop file in the deb package too, but they didnt.23:56
sarnoldperhaps no one's filed the bug report to ask for it23:57
sarnoldor submitted a patch with one23:57
NeoFAT32is that the root directory ?23:57
NeoFAT32I can't type it yet, I have a apple keyboard.23:57
NeoFAT32The sign.23:57
sarnold~ is understood by most programs to refer to your home directory23:58
NeoFAT32A thing is sure, Mint was more easy to use. I just had to right click on the folder to have the root access (sudo).23:58
NeoFAT32It seems like I have to use the syntax in the terminal on ubuntu.23:58
