redhelmeti cant seem to save files on ubuntu 18,its saying: not enough disk space,but it still has plenty.00:36
sarnoldcheck both df -h and df -i00:37
sarnoldit's very unlikely that you've run out of inodes, but it can happen00:37
redhelmetwhat to look for after using df command ?00:37
sarnoldcheck to see if the filesystem you were trying to use is out of space or out of inodes00:38
redhelmetim sorry, can u link me on a site for the the steps?00:39
redhelmettried googling 'cannot save on ubuntu18' or not enough disk space,but unsuccesfull w/ the suggestions00:41
sarnoldredhelmet: the first half of this looks good https://www.redhat.com/sysadmin/Linux-df-command00:43
redhelmettnx.will check it00:43
redhelmetyeap,confirm, 100% use% , 0 for avail.. disk app is still showing plenty though..00:48
redhelmet*disk usage analyzer says: 7gb available00:49
redhelmeti tried some of the steps here : https://itsfoss.com/free-up-space-ubuntu-linux/ but still cant save files00:56
sarnoldalmost all those are to free up space on 'system filesystems'; only one of them appears to do anything for your home directory. depending upon which filesystems you've chosen to have, they may or may not help00:59
redhelmetwhich 1 is for the home directory sir?01:00
sarnoldredhelmet: "Clean the thumbnail cache"01:01
sarnoldyou could probably also clear caches in your browser, if it's your home filesystem that's full01:01
ograand empty your trash 😉01:03
redhelmethow to know if the partition is set as home filesystem ?01:03
redhelmettrash was the 1st thing i emptied01:03
sarnoldinspecting the output of df -h output is a good approach01:03
redhelmetwill this command help ? apt-get clean or should i do it 1x101:06
redhelmetmost the apps appearing after df -h has 0 avail and 100% use01:07
sarnoldapt-get clean will clean up /var/cache/apt/archives/  -- if that directory is on the filesystem that is full, yes, that can help01:07
redhelmeti think the cache are not clearing by the apt-get clean,coz after doing another df -h,the apps still has same 0 avail and 100% use01:11
sarnoldwhat do you mean by "the apps still has same 0"?01:13
sarnoldwhat filesystem are you trying to make space on?01:13
redhelmetis that the partition type ? > what filesystem are you trying to make space on?01:15
sarnoldwhere are you trying to create a new file?01:15
redhelmetcoz im expecting them to be NOT 0 avail and 100% after using apt-get clean.. after doing apt-get clean did a 2x check for any changes by doing df -h,still same #s on avail and use01:17

Voidwarperis there somewhere a tarball of ubuntu for use in chroot?12:17
ravageVoidwarper: you can use debootstrap. Have a look at lxd. makes that a lot easier to manage12:27

Voidwarperi want the minimum overhead12:30
ravageno but it makes management a lot easier12:30
ravageand functionality in a chroot is always limited and there is no real seperation from your host system12:31

mitaroIs anyone using QEMU on Ubuntu Desktop? I was trying to do so, then get into an issue while trying to create a new VM, the virt-manager warned me that the emulator might not be able to access the folder where the ISO I was trying to install was sitting, and proposed to mess all the permission to make it work. Obviously I politely refused but I did12:32
mitaronot find any good info on how this is supposed to work. Shall I create a home directory just for the emulator? How user/groups are supposed to be set?12:32
ravageand why dont you just let it set the permission for the iso?12:33
ravageor create a shared folder outside your home for ISOs?12:34
mitaroravage: setting the permissions only for the ISO file will not work unless I grant access to all the folders on top of it - which I do not think is a good idea. I could create a new "home" folder for the emulator, where to store ISOs and disk images (I need to store them somewhere as well, and /var/lib/libvirt... does not sound a good place -12:37
mitarolimited space there) but what user/group it should belong to? libvirt/kvm?12:37
jsbachhi, i am using nemo as filemanager. Does nemo support dark theme?12:37
ravagemitaro: how does changing permissions use more space? let virt-manager set the permissions and it works. it only modifies the permissions of that file and maybe sets the x flag for the folder12:39
ravageand VMs need space. so figure our how to store them first12:40
mitaroravage: never said that "changing permissions use more space" - and yes, it will set the x flag to all top folders which basically means that since that moment, all guest vm might eventually lurk in the home directory.12:41
ravagethat is not what the execute flag does12:42
ravageyou are only able to traverse through it. not read any contents12:42
ravagealso only because qemu can read it does not mean your guest VMs have any access12:43

ubottuGuest38: Jammy Jellyfish is the codename for Ubuntu 22.04. For technical support, see #ubuntu-next. For testing and QA feedback and help, see #ubuntu-quality.12:44
ravageGuest38: short answer. its not stable yet12:45
mitaroravage: that's true however I would prefer to use a separate directory for VM things like ISOs and disk images, other than the user home - is that possible? (Well, I think it is possible, just I did not find information about the correct user/group)12:46
ravagethe storage files itself are owned by root here12:48
ravageand the iso just has to be accessible12:48
mitaroravage: owned by root? I thought there was a libvirt user or something12:48
ravagethere is such a user yes12:49
ravageshould also work to assign it the qcow files to it12:50
mitaroravage: yes, and if I'm not wrong the libvirt daemon should not run as root... but maybe I'm wrong - found too many information that I start to be confused12:50
marc__anyone know how to get the remote to work in linux for a creative Extigy usb sound card it works in Ubuntu but the features on it dont seem to work.12:50
ravagelet the wizard create your VM and you see what the right permissions are12:51
ravageyou can also choose the storage location12:51
mitaroravage: yes, the default one in /var/lib... is not amazing if you ask me12:51
ravageyou can select the location for it in the wizard12:52

olspookishmagustrying to make my laptop dualboot to either Windows and Ubuntu15:34
olspookishmagusI see that Win10 uses three (3) primary partitions for it's installation15:34
olspookishmagusleaving only the data partition (and moving it to the start) of the disk15:34
olspookishmagusrenders windows unbootable15:34
olspookishmagusI did some checks and saw that there were no bootmgr file15:35
olspookishmaguson that partition15:35
olspookishmagusafter I did copy that from my partition backups15:35
EriC^^olspookishmagus: are you in the ubuntu live usb right now?15:35
EriC^^aha go on15:35
olspookishmagusEriC^^: I'm on my older laptop but I can do stuff you might suggest15:35
EriC^^did you get windows booting again?15:35
EriC^^did you have an efi/esp partition as one of the partitions?15:36
olspookishmagusafter I put that bootmgr file the installer detects windows (before it didn't) and now creates a grub meny entry15:36
olspookishmagusbut still unbootable15:36
EriC^^aha, so ubuntu is installed and booting now, but windows isnt, correct?15:36
olspookishmagusEriC^^: the partitions removed were "System Reserved" and "Recovery Partition"15:37
olspookishmagusEriC^^: both "installed" only Ubuntu boots15:37
EriC^^olspookishmagus: ok, type in ubuntu 'sudo parted -ls | nc termbin.com 9999' and paste the link it gives you here15:37
EriC^^btw do you have a windows iso15:37
olspookishmagusbut I have no network there because for some reason the firmware isn't "installed"15:38
olspookishmagusbut I will do that manually give me a sec15:38
EriC^^olspookishmagus: hmm, can you use an ethernet cable?15:38
olspookishmagusI'm on a remote area and someone's phone is our hotspot :D15:39
=== coconut_ is now known as coconut
ravagethat phone can probably do USB tethering too to install the missing firmware and enable wifi15:40
olspookishmaguseven worse: No parted15:40
olspookishmagusbut I have fdisk15:40
olspookishmagusthat seems an important debug step, how do I manually install the firmware? download the .deb and dpkg it?15:41
ravagedo you know what firmware you need?15:42
olspookishmagusI even have the iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode on a USB15:42
olspookishmagusthe installer uses it just fine but it doesn't "install it"15:42
olspookishmaguspossible due to it being part of the "non-free" part of Ubuntu15:43
ravagethe file is part of linux-firmware15:43
ravageits not in non-free15:44
ravageso you should have it installed really15:44
ravagedoes /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode exist?15:44
EriC^^olspookishmagus: try 'sudo ubuntu-drivers devices' it might list anything you need15:45
ravageif not and you have the file available anyway you can just try to copy it there15:45
olspookishmagusravage: ok I'll just do that for now15:46
olspookishmagusI'm afraid that then I'll need some CLI tool to configure/connect to my AP15:47
confuzeushi. i am using ubuntu 20.02. i have noticed some "strange" behavior with chromium on my system. i keep it open on the favourites list but it frequently "disappears" from the favourites even though it is still open. that is, the dot showing it is open disappears from the favourites even though chromium itself browser is still open. anyone knows how to change the behaviour15:47
olspookishmagusany suggestions on that?15:47
ravageolspookishmagus: if the device is detected you can configure your wifi in the desktop environment15:48
olspookishmagusravage: provided I have a DE15:48
olspookishmaguswhich I don't15:49
olspookishmagusit's a messy situation cause I want to make sure I'll be able to dual boot15:49
ravagethen you did a custom install and have to figure out how you enable wifi there15:49
olspookishmagusso I have a small space left because of the "backup partition"15:49
olspookishmagusok I'll try that15:49
ravagethe only official installer without a GUI is ubuntu server i think15:50
olspookishmagusspot on15:50
ravageconfuzeus: the community cant support snaps. so maybe seek support at https://snapcraft.io/chromium15:52
olspookishmagusmy question is actually if the Win10 installation had three (3) partitions, if the recipe to have it working again in one partition is known15:54
ravagei dont run windows :) no idea15:54
olspookishmagusyeah, me neither15:54
ravagethere is #windows if you need support with that OS15:55
EriC^^olspookishmagus: type 'sudo blkid /dev/sda' and look at the far right at the pttype15:55
olspookishmagus(so no gpt)15:56
EriC^^olspookishmagus: when you moved the windows installation probably that's what broke it, cause it expects to look in a specific spot to boot it15:57
EriC^^olspookishmagus: if you have a windows iso, you can easily make a bootable installation usb that works with uefi by making a fat32 partition and copying its contents there, then boot it in uefi mode, in the installer you'd go to advanced> cmd prompt15:57
olspookishmagusEriC^^: by "specific spot" you mean it has a file saying hook up from that "sector" and onwards?15:58
EriC^^olspookishmagus: from there you need to mount the windows filesystem using diskpart, and then exit and run the bcdboot or whatever commands, 1 sec15:58
EriC^^i think that's the gist of it15:58
olspookishmagusok, I think I'll have to retry with another installation because this is serioussly messed up15:59
olspookishmagusno network-manager server, no ifconfig, no parted, no ...15:59
EriC^^ah actually you dont need diskpart for mbr fixing, see the bottom part of this guide, https://www.dell.com/support/kbdoc/en-us/000124331/how-to-repair-the-efi-bootloader-on-a-gpt-hdd-for-windows-7-8-8-1-and-10-on-your-dell-pc16:00
olspookishmagusbut, but... I don't have GPT?16:00
olspookishmagusbut I'll give this a go16:01
olspookishmagusif I'm certain I can boot to Windows again16:01
olspookishmagusI will wipe the recovery partition and go for a full installation of a ubuntu as an option16:01
EriC^^the bottom part mentions the commands used for legacy/mbr booting systems16:02
olspookishmagusit's situtations like this that make my backpack seem like a hoarding symptom16:02
olspookishmagusWell I get: "Access Denied" on the "bootrec /fixboot" part.16:03
EriC^^i would first get windows booting, just make the installation usb, boot it, 3 commands16:03
olspookishmagusI don't need an installation USB, I was lucky to have ordered an iODD 2541 http://iodd.kr/wordpress/product/iodd-2541/16:03

morganuOh that looks nice. What if I want Vanilla Gnome. Can I load it as a DE or do I have to install is from an iso?19:40
oerheksmorganu, install, logout, change to vanilla, login AFAIK19:41
oerheksor use the server iso to do a clean install19:41
morganudo I already have Vanilla? I am using the one that came with 20.04 with some tweaks to put the dock on the bottom.19:42
oerheksmorganu, in short: no19:42
morganuI would reallylike to also have an application tree like xubuntu has.19:42
oerheksone needs to put the metapackages side by side, to see the differences19:42
morganuok I will search for it.19:42
morganuI discovered corky, is this a DE? what is it actually?  Hhttps://www.linux.com/topic/desktop/how-install-and-configure-conky/19:43
oerheksno, it is just a monitoring tool19:44
oerhekslongest tread on ubuntu forum; show us your conky .. 2300+ pages19:45
morganuoerheks, thanks. I will look it up and figure it out.  (I made a persistent USB for 21.10 but have not tried it yet. Am excited.)19:45
morganuthat was thanks for the vanilla comment and also for the corky.19:45
oerhekshave fun!19:45
morganuanother question. say I want to make a desktop widget to do proportions. where do I start?19:47
morganu(I was a programmer long ago, but never on a PC or any kind.)19:48
markmcbi have a headless server that shows a magenta full-screen menu to restart services when i upgrade via apt ... is there a way to disable this?19:56
dubiousnessmarkmcb: you could configure Unattended Upgrades19:58
dubiousnessThere are configuration options for automatically upgrading services19:58
markmcbthanks, but i don't want to auto-upgrade. i just want to get rid of that magenta screen/prompt during the apt process.19:59
dubiousnessmarkmcb: When you say 'get rid of' what do you mean? You want to have the services just restart without asking you?20:03
markmcbdo whatever the upgrade script does by default20:03
markmcbwhat's interesting, i don't get this screen on a fresh install of 22.04 ... it's only on a server that's been upgraded a few times ... so it's like some old, non-default config that I can't seem to find20:04
yuesbeezUbuntu 20.04 when I use systemctl suspend I get stuck at black screen with white cursor but pm-suspend works great. how can i fix systemctl suspend or switch the suspend button to use the pm-suspend command20:13
=== useful_idiot5 is now known as useful_idiot
markmcbI think I may have found it. The system that shows this prompt has "needrestart" package installed. The system that doesn't, doesn't have this package.20:26

seifeslimeneI use Ubuntu 20.04 sometimes the system get totally frozen...20:35
markmcbogra, thanks, but to clarify this issue isn't unique to 22.0420:45
ogramarkmcb, you should file a bug then i guess against the package asking the question20:46
seifeslimenemarkmcb Is there a way to look into the problem after it happened? like for example see logs...20:46
markmcbogra, it's not a bug. if needrestart is installed, you get the prompt. if it's not, you don't. i'll have to confirm with a upgrade that requires a service restart, but the man pages seem to indicate all i need to do is uninstall it.20:48
jacintillo20.04.4 LTS vanilla Ubuntu on a ThinkPad W150 here. How do I get FireFox Nightly as a favorite to add it to the dock?20:59
ogramarkmcb, well, in 22.04 it is in the default seed for ubuntu-server-minimal ... we used to have a policy of not asking questions once (and in that case it would be a bug), not sure what happened to that ...21:00
ograprobably that policy changed21:01
ograjacintillo, just right-click the icon while FF nightly is running ... the context menu should offer you to keep the icon there21:02
jacintilloogra: Ohh. Nice idea.21:02
jacintilloLet me try.21:02
jacintilloogra: No luck. All it gives is 'Quit' and 'All Windows.'21:03
ograhmm, you should have something like "add to favourites" ... strange21:04
ograhow did you install FF ?21:05
Dr-007hi guys. i copied my hdd's ubuntu to a usb thumbdrive. chrooted into it installed grub EFI on another usb partition and successfully booted from the USB. which is awesome! but it is very slow. which i kinda saw coming, but i didnt expect it to be THIS slow. so, my question: is it possible to make the usb rootfs read only? i think it'll be alot quicker then.21:06
jacintilloogra: It isn't 'installed.' I execute the pre-compiled binary from their website.21:06
ograjacintillo, ah ... then it likely desnt install its .desktop file properly into the system ... i'd google for that21:07
* jacintillo nods.21:08
ogragood luck 🙂21:08
murthyHello everyone22:08
murthyoerheks: hi22:09
murthyoerheks: I am using Chromium browser via snaps22:09
murthyoerheks: the icon is not getting displayed. Should I consider this as a warrant canary sign?22:10
murthyAlso how can I know if any of the Ubuntu devs under gag order?22:10
oerhekson what ubuntu version?22:11
murthyoerheks: using kde neon user edition iso. but Ubuntu version is 20.0422:12
oerheksoh neon, not supported here as #kubuntu, afaik22:12
murthyoerheks: chromium version 99.0.4844.84 build 194522:13
murthyoerheks: can you check the chromium snap?22:13
murthyif the latest version's icon is getting displayed properly?22:13
oerheksyes, but my icon appears on ubuntu/gnome22:13
oerheksno test for neon, i think you should find their channel22:14
murthyoerheks: what the chromium version of snap you are using?22:14
oerheksalso snaps have a lot of options22:14
leftyfbmurthy: type:   /join #kubuntu22:15
oerhekswith neon, leftyfb ?22:15
murthyoerheks: If its the same version we both are using then it must be distro/iso specific22:15
leftyfboerheks: no idea, thought that's where you were sending them22:15
murthyleftyfb: Ya sure, but I just need the version22:15
murthyoerheks: can you give me the version?22:15
leftyfbmurthy: you are not running Ubuntu. Please seek support from your distro vendor22:16
leftyfbmurthy: you can also ask for help with snaps in #snappy22:16
lalitmeeSo, by mistake I did a fresh install and after that I added another user with different username. Now I have removed that user but when I login into my system it is not detecting that user automatically and in the settings too it doesn't show any user. and when I try to add `lalitmee` which is already there it is saying that user name not available22:17
lalitmeehow can I make my user to come automatically on greeter instead of typing the username. Then I will have to simply type password for that.22:18
leftyfblalitmee: remove all other users22:18
lalitmeeleftyfb: but all other users are for some applications too. I can't remove that.22:19
lalitmeeit will create a lot of problem22:19
lalitmeedon't you think?22:19
leftyfblalitmee: not system users. Only users you have added22:19
lalitmeeleftyfb: I have removed that user `lalitkumar`22:19
leftyfblalitmee: ( cat /etc/os-release ; uname -a ; grep :x:[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]: /etc/passwd ) nc termbin.com 999922:21
Dr-007hey guys, im looking to make an iso from my current ubuntu o.s. so i can then make a persistent bootable usb drive from it (and i read somewhere that the o.s. installer will then autoreveal)22:33
lalitmeeleftyfb: give me a minute22:34
leftyfblalitmee: all you have to do is copy and paste the command onto your terminal, hit enter and paste the resulting URL here22:35
lalitmeeleftyfb: actually there was a pipe missing from the command so it was giving error. I figured it out and this is the url https://termbin.com/axvo22:36
leftyfblalitmee: damn, you're right, sorry22:37
lalitmeeleftyfb: no problem22:37

ubottulalitmee: The Ubuntu channels can only provide support for Ubuntu and its official flavors, since other distributions and derivatives have repository and software changes. So please use their dedicated support venues, for example: Linux Mint (#linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org), Kali Linux (#kali-linux), and LXLE (#lxle)22:37
leftyfblalitmee: I will tell you, look in /passwd for users with UID's over 100022:38
lalitmeeleftyfb: okk and then22:38
leftyfblalitmee: beyond that, you need to seek support for your distro from the distro vendor. You are not running Ubuntu22:39
lalitmeeleftyfb: ohh22:39
Dr-007basicly my question would be: should i have to install the casper package in the current o.s.? ill probably use this guide to make a bootable image from my ubuntu: https://hostingcontroller.com/english/support/HC-Virtualization-Module/WebHelp/HC-Templates/Xen-Templates/Creating_Disk_Image_for_Root_Filesystem.htm22:39
Dr-007never mind, i just installed it. hehe22:41

Dr-007sometimes i forget that there's probably GUI tools which will do everything im trying to do by hand22:54
Dr-007i'm going to use sudo apt install systemback22:54
