o|||||ocan anyone help me understand part of a tutorial?00:12
o|||||oi'm at the authroisation section(towards the bottom) and what do i do with the line that starts with deploy? just run it? https://capistranorb.com/documentation/getting-started/authentication-and-authorisation/00:13
sarnoldheh, a *lot* of those lines have 'deploy' in them :)00:14
sarnoldthis one feels most likely to me, is this it?00:15
sarnolddeploy ALL=NOPASSWD:/etc/init.d/mysqld, /etc/init.d/apache200:15
sarnoldif so, that's a bit of a sudo config file; the documentation is horrible, but extensive; the sudoers(5) manpage has tons of detail. you can put that line in place with visudo00:16
sarnoldI'm worried about those docs, though, they suggest granting permissions to the sysv-init scripts for starting mysqld and apache2, which is a rare way to work these days; I wonder if this has been updated lately00:16
o|||||oyes sorry, didn't think about how many deploys are in there but yes that's the one00:17
tomreyngreat, i just answered the same question in #linux00:18
sarnoldtomreyn: did we come to the same conclusion? :)00:20
o|||||oyes lol00:20
tomreyni didn't comment on the use of likely outdated init scripts, so your answer was better, sarnold00:20
o|||||osarnold, what would you recommend instead?00:21
sarnoldo|||||o: no idea, it's possible that the deploy thing they're documenting is just not updated for systemd world00:22
sarnoldo|||||o: or perhaps it has been documented and those tips are now useless00:22
sarnoldo|||||o: worst case, you might have to read the source of the tool to figure out what it's going to do00:22

jay321trying dpkg -i gcc-8-riscv64-linux-gnu_8.4.0-1ubuntu1_18.04cross1_amd64.deb02:39
rbox gcc-8-riscv64-linux-gnu depends on cpp-8-riscv64-linux-gnu (= 8.4.0-1ubuntu1~18.04cross1); however:02:40
jay321is there an dpkg switch to resolve dependencies? i dont want to do it manually02:40
rboxwell if you're randomly downloading deb files02:41
rboxwhere do you think its going t oget the dependency from02:41
jay321i tried add the mirror to /etc/apt/sources.list, but failed to apt-update install because the public key is not available from InRelease from bionic-security02:42
sarnoldwhat ubuntu release are you running?02:43
jay321it is 22.04.1 LTS02:43
sarnoldjay321: you may find it easier to use lxd to start a bionic image in order to use that old of a compiler02:46
sarnold.. trying to install very old software is sometimes difficult, it's usually easier to just run the old OS, too02:47
jay321this is in windows 1002:47
sarnoldah, I wonder if we had a bionic in WSL or not02:48
sarnoldwhy do you need an old compiler anyway?02:48
jay321sarnold: building embedded linux for nexys a702:49
sarnoldthat might be reason enough for the weird old compiler then, heh02:49
jay321how can i get lxd?02:49
jay321tried apt-get install lxd?02:50
sarnoldI doubt lxd will run in windows02:50
jay321its ubuntu on lxd02:50
jay321its ubuntu on win1002:50
sarnoldthat screenshot shows there was an 18.04 LTS version at some point02:51
jay321use 18.04 LTS?02:53
sarnoldyeah, that compiler version string indicates it was built for 18.0402:53
sarnoldjay321: maybe try this? https://apps.microsoft.com/store/detail/ubuntu-18045-lts/9PNKSF5ZN4SW?hl=en-us&gl=us  -- once you're installed, then: sudo apt update && sudo apt install gcc-8-riscv64-linux-gnu02:55

temHey folks, I seem to be having a weird permissions problem with gedit. It's probably something basic because I've been using Linux for only a few hours, but I did a web search and didn't find anything.10:48
temSo I installed gedit from the Ubuntu Software center, and I created a folder in my home folder with the command "mkdir .themes" because I want to customize the GNOME theme and I read that copying it into this folder is a good idea.10:49
temBut when I try to open .themes in gedit I get a permission denied error!10:49
temSo I checked the permissions with "ls -ld .themes" and it says: drwxrwxr-x 3 tem tem 4096 Dec  9 10:38 .themes10:51
EriC^^tem: you want to create a file there i guess10:51
EriC^^gedit ~/.themes/my_file10:52
temWell sort of, I want to edit the file ~/.themes/Yaru/gtk-3.0/gtk.css and it won't let me, but even just trying to open the .themes folder or creating a new file in it results in the same error, yes.10:52
Maiktem: weird that you had to install gedit from the software center because gedit is pre-installed by default on Ubuntu10:53
EriC^^tem: type "ls -ld /home{,/$USER}"10:54
temI did see the "Text Editor" app, but some AskUbuntu answer said to use gedit so I installed that, which also is called "Text Editor" but they have different process names -- the default is called "gnome-text-editor" and the one I downloaded is called "gedit", so I downloaded the real gedit.10:55
MaikText Editor = Gedit :)10:56
temdrwxr-xr-x  4 root root 4096 Dec  6 16:30 /home/10:56
temdrwxr-x--- 18 tem  tem  4096 Dec  7 14:24 /home/tem10:56
temOk, so the default Text Editor has no problem accessing .themes10:57
EriC^^tem: what happens if you type 'gedit ~/.themes/test' as the user 'tem' ?10:59
temIt opens a new editor window, but when I CTRL+S it says "could not save the file... You do not have the permissions necessary to save the file"11:00
EriC^^tem: try 'touch ~/.themes/test' in a terminal11:01
temEriC^^: works just fine, it created a new file11:01
temI also checked the permissions in the Software Center and everything is enabled.11:02
mihonAre there anyway to hide folders without messing up the path way to the program?11:02
EriC^^tem: try from the same terminal, typing 'gedit ~/.themes/test' and adding some text and saving11:04
EriC^^mihon: what exactly do you mean? you want to avoid typing /path/to/program to run it you mean?11:04
temEriC^^: Yes, it's the same terminal! Is it hard to believe?11:04
mihonEriC^^ Yes, when i try to hide the Powerlevel10K folder it cant find the folder when starting the terminal.11:05
mihonSo i get an error message that it can not find the path to the folder11:05
EriC^^mihon: how are you hiding the folder?11:06
EriC^^tem: yeah, pretty odd stuff11:06
mihonI put a DOt infront of it, i even tried create a hidden folder and put it in there11:06
EriC^^mihon: ok, and how are you running the program later?11:07
mihonFor instance powerlevel10k is theme to ZSH. So i get this message "/home/mihon/.zshrc:source:109: no such file or directory: /home/mihon/powerlevel10k/powerlevel10k.zsh-theme11:08
mihonI want to hide folders without having to change the pathway to all files and programs, i want to clean up the Home directory11:09
EriC^^mihon: you have to change the lines in /home/mihon/.zshrc i guess so it looks for .powerlevel...11:09
mihonThere are no other way to hide folders to make the home directory a little bit cleaner?11:10
EriC^^none that im aware of, sorry11:10
mihonOkey, thanks tho11:11
EriC^^no problem11:11
EriC^^tem: if you want try running 'strace -o /tmp/bla gedit ~/.themes/test' and try to write/save then upload the last parts of /tmp/bla somewhere in case it shows any clues as to why its not saving11:13
temEriC^^: Will do! Here it is: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/KDDckzdYBs/ (the whole output because I don't know which parts are relevant)11:23
EriC^^tem: right off the bat, maybe it's cause it's a snap11:24
EriC^^try 'sudo snap remove gedit' then 'sudo apt-get install gedit'11:25
temEriC^^: Yep, that worked!11:29
EriC^^tem: great11:41
temEriC^^: Thanks for helping me solve the problem. I guess apt is what the pros use!12:12
EriC^^tem: no problem, hehe it's more like snap seems to be buggy :D12:14
chao121Hello everyone. I have a quick question, I feel like I must be missing something. I have tried ubuntu 22.10 on both an x86_64 machine and on an arm64 raspberry pi, and I've noticed that at some point between previous versions and this version, UDP receive performance as tested with iperf has gone from 900+mbps on my gigabit network to less than12:42
chao121500mbps. It's not only ubuntu, also with fedora with recent kernel versions. I googled but can't seem to figure out what's going on. Anyone know anything about this?12:42
ograEriC^^, the prob her is that someone thought it would be a good idea to package gedit as a strictly confined snap (versus classic (unconfined) as all other editors are), so it falls under the "no spying on hidden dirs" rule that strict snaps use ... someone should file a bug ("snap info gedit | grep contact") to have it re-packed as classic snap12:51

leftyfbseer__: Ubuntu 21.xx is EOL18:33
leftyfbseer__: once you try to install a supported release of ubuntu, you'll want to disable UEFI and secure boot in order to simplify things18:34
arraybolt3As sad as I am to admit it, I also agree with disabling UEFI to make things easy. At least, if you're going to only boot Linux.18:36
arraybolt3(UEFI doesn't add too much complexity to single-boot setups, but it's also prone to some surprising firmware-related bugs.)18:36
leftyfb"surprising firmware-related bugs" = complexity :)18:37
leftyfbthere's really no benfit to UEFI over MBR which it comes to a single linux installation18:37
leftyfbon the other hand, UEFI can lead to problems18:38
leftyfbwhen possible, it's always easier to just disable it18:38

leftyfbseer__: you'll need to seek support with Windows in #windows. For your BIOS setting, try #hardware or looking up the manual for your device/motherboard18:54
seer__I know to cbios settings. and #windows wont give me sin getting rid of windows. I'll try web search.18:56

seer__Ah ha, leftyfb  turned off "restore previous state" on AC power loss - in the bios.18:59
=== seer__ is now known as morgan
=== morgan is now known as morgan-u
leftyfbmorgan-u: that will only tell the device to power on or stay off depending on if it was powered on or off before it lost power. Nothing to do with secure boot or UEFI19:10
WaVAnytime I have a firmware update installed for my system using Ubuntu, I have to re-assign the bootloader to Grub via Windows with bcdedit as the Grub bootloader doesn't show up after insatlling the new firmware. Aside from avoiding firmware updates, is there something I can do to avoid having to do this everytime there is a firmware update?19:18
WaVUbuntu 22.04 / Windows 10 FYI.19:18
morgan-u2Rebooted into USB of 22.04, and install told me two partitions has been written already and would be ignored. what do I do now? Use gparted to format the drive?19:22
leftyfbmorgan-u2: during the ubuntu installation, pick guided install and tell it to use the entire drive (wipe windows)19:23
leftyfbif wiping Windows is what you prefer19:24
morgan-u2I was doing that. after telling you I rebooted and retried the install and so far, it went past that point. Sorry to bother you of higher knowledge about these things.19:24
morgan-u2oh no now it as a new complaint - The attempt to mount a file sstem with type vfat in SCSI1 partion#1 (sda) at /boot/efi failed.  You may resume partioning from the partioning menu.  (GO BACK) (CONTINUE)19:26
morgan-u2EDIT scsi1 (0,0,0), partion #1 (sda)19:27
morgan-u2It isnt trying to install on the flash drive is it?19:27
leftyfbhit continue19:28
morgan-u2This flash trive has been used successfullyin thepast.19:29
rodybigMy VM is running at 100% memory utilization for some reason. When I list processes by memory util, it shows gnome-shell at 5%. Is it fine to kill it? I'm not using GUI19:31
rodybigAlso, how do I clear up more memory? Even 95% is too much.19:31
rodybigOr just restart the ubuntu vm?19:32
leftyfbrodybig: if you're not using the GUI, then remove it and reboot19:32
leftyfbrodybig: you should investigate further what is using memory. Look at htop19:33
rodybigleftyfb For some reason, I have /usr/bin/gnome-shell appearing 10-15 times on htop19:39
rodybigTaking up 4.9% memory each19:39
leftyfbrodybig: remove the GUI packages completely, reboot and then see what's running19:40
rodybig@leftylb Hmm, I could do that. But I do want the GUI at some point. I don't want to mess up that install.19:41
rodybigI do have gnome on other servers which work just fine19:41
rodybigAnd other VMs on the same server work fine19:41
rodybigIt's just this one VM which is at 100%19:41
morgan-u2leftyfb, so far is installing so good. comment on offtopic19:45
rodybig                   total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available19:47
rodybigMem:          3.8Gi       1.6Gi       650Mi        28Mi       1.6Gi       2.0Gi19:47
rodybigIt does say 2G available19:47
leftyfbrodybig: then you are fine19:48
leftyfbthere's nothing wrong with your system19:48
rodybigBut gotop shows 95% memory usage19:48
leftyfbthen don't use gotop19:48
leftyfbor learn how to read it19:48
leftyfbrodybig: especially since gotop isn't a support application in ubuntu19:49
morgan-u2How long before I decide that the installation is again stuck on "Creating est4 file systm for / in partition #2 of SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda)...  --> again!!20:17
morgan-u2OK I opened gparted and it is trying or has made sda2 the entire disk as sxt4 /target -BUT- there is still an /dev/sda1 that is EFI System Partition  ntfs   Label=Recovery  512MiB used 244.18 MiB  flags=boot, esp20:21
leftyfbmorgan-u2: if you have an old laptop HDD in there, it might take a while20:21
morgan-u2and no way to quit the install. I left it all night and it stuck at the same place. The HDD is 1 terabyte. Would it be useful for me to pastebin the lshw?20:22
morgan-u2or should I look at it myself and tellyou what you might want to ask me?20:23
leftyfbmorgan-u2: again, if this is a really old and slow machine and a 1TB drive, it might take a while20:24
leftyfblonger than you expect20:24
morgan-u2I have to call the internet provider. disconnectsgparted20:26
jwmTOI'm trying to convert a large CHM file to a PDF.  chm2pdf isn't installed on my 22.04 system and I can't seem too install it.  Any ideas?20:30
morgan-u2ok how do I check the temperature of the computer (wherever which part do they check, the chip or the hard drive??)20:30
morgan-u2It is a 3.5 2022 model hard drive. But there may be a lot of dust in the computer. It smelled bad at birst.'20:31
oerheks!info chm2pdf  jammy20:31
leftyfbmorgan-u2: lm-sensors package. You call "sensors" as the binary20:31
oerheksoh, latest version is bionic20:31
ubottuPackage chm2pdf does not exist in jammy20:32
jwmTOoerheks: thanks, I'll try20:32
mortwhat do you do when packages "have been kept back"? apt-get dist-upgrade doesn't make a difference20:32
jwmTOubottu that is my problem20:32
leftyfbmort: wait until they aren't kept back any longer20:32
arraybolt3!phasedupdates | mort20:32
ubottumort: Since Ubuntu 21.04, APT now implements phased updates. This can hold back updates on some systems while they are being phased in. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PhasedUpdates for more info.20:32
oerheksbut see the bugreports first...20:32
arraybolt3mort: It's a safety feature, some updates are rolled out slowly, those who aren't getting them yet see them as being held back.20:33
morta bit annoying that the system just claims I have 7 packages not upgraded and I can't upgrade them but I suppose I'll just wait20:34
jwmTOoerheks thanks, I'll look for those20:34

xatrixhi guys, can you help me ? i can't get the clue, why my system gets overloaded time to time. I have 8G of RAM + 2G swap. I have uptime of 2 days, and have a tons of the google chrme processes, and skypefor linux. Why it doesn't sanitize itself ? https://imgur.com/kENWmj8.png and https://imgur.com/GMIcCy1.png21:34
xatrixplase advice21:34
sarnoldxatrix: do you actually run chrome and skype?21:36
leftyfbxatrix: looks like a combination of google, skype, telegram, timedoctor and whatever document-portal is21:37
xatrixsarnold: sure, i use it21:37
sarnoldxatrix: aha, good :) this seems normal enough to me21:37
xatrixleftyfb: yea, but why does chrome and skype allocates !!31GB!! of mem ?21:37
xatrixskype is a messager. it's not a database or whatever it is :)21:38
leftyfbthey don't, especially since that's physically impossible when you only have 821:38
leftyfbxatrix: I cannot speak to how poorly written skype is. It's a 3rd party application21:38
xatrixYes, But i have 8+2 Gb of RAM, How the hell, it can fill it up to 90% ?21:38
xatrixMaybe i have something misconfigured in my system ?21:39
xatrixmaybe i have to do some sysctl tunings ?21:39
leftyfbxatrix: close chrome and skype and see how your memory looks21:39
sarnoldI don't think you'll improve anything by fiddling around with settings. the best step to take is upgrading to 16gb or more21:40
leftyfbalso not opening too many tabs in chrome and not enable or even install too many addons/extensions21:40
xatrixi've closed both. and now i have only WhatsChrome (chrome app) for the Whatsapp service. And the situation didn't change max...21:41
leftyfbyour phsical memory looks a LOT better21:41
leftyfbswap will let go as needed21:41
xatrixAnd this is how looks like, when i closed WhatsChrome app. But ok, I'm using ubuntu 22.04 with XFCE window manager21:42
xatrixDoes it really take 1G+ for this ?21:42
leftyfbso you know the problem is with either chrome and/or skype. Skype we can't fix. If it's eating lots of memory, your only options are to not open it or add more physical memory to your machine21:42
leftyfbxatrix: chrome can eat ALL of your memory if you are not careful with it21:43
xatrixAnd ok, assuming it is. but can the webbrowser and messenger take a 8GB of memory ?????21:43
leftyfbchrome you can manage. I gave you some actions above. You can also try slimmer browsers21:44
leftyfbxatrix: if telegram and skype are taking lots of memory, you'll have to seek support from their vendors21:44
xatrixOk, i got it... thanks for advices..I thought i have misconfigured the system21:45
Supavisahis there a way to enter in unicode braille characters quickly in Ubuntu?21:55
SupavisahI see you can use ctrl+shift+u to enter unicode but this requires knowing the hexadecimal value e.g. 0x281A for dots-245 braille21:59
SupavisahI can't seem to get the braille xkeyboard layout working either, not sure why.22:21
sarnoldI poked around a bit but only found stuff for windows, blech22:24
