snappyI read an article that ubuntu zfs support is waning and might not be around for long, does that mean newer ubuntu releases are going to drop zfs?02:30
sarnoldsnappy: I don't think that's been decided; it's certainly deprioritized in the installer. it might be better to stick to zfs for 'storage' tasks rather than 'os' tasks..02:31
Bashing-omsnappy: The take I get is "feedback has led to a redesign" >> 2023: see: https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/future-of-zfs-on-ubuntu-desktop/33001 for that discussion,02:33

webchat68Ubuntu hides the grub menu if it is the only system installed on a HD. If installed on an Apple macbook with the APFS file system grub doesn't recognize OSx and hides the grub menu. With a PC, the ESC key (and sometimes one of the 'F' keys) brings up the grub menu screen, but this does not work with an Apple. If, at first boot after install, ubuntu03:09
webchat68'blackscreens', there is no way to bring up the grub menu in order to boot with "nomodeset". The ESC, and all other keys, do not work. Plugging in a usb PC keyboard doesn't work either. This is a problem unique to apple. Debian (at least some Deb distros) doesn't hide the grub menu by default, the way ubuntu does. Who here has figured out how to03:09
webchat68bring up a hidden grub menu when the install is on a blackscreened Apple?03:09
Bashing-omwebchat68: Alternate: Boot the installer to "try ubuntu mode" mount the install root partition and edit the /etc/default/grub file ??03:13
webchat68I've managed by booting live and then mounting the installed ubuntu and editing as root, but it is involved..way too involved for a newbie (which I am not). Why are the ubuntu developers insisting on hiding grub? Linux newbies trying to install on a mac (usually with an older radeon) are running into this all the time. How does this get 'fixed'?03:23
webchat68Developers should be aware that apples do not behave the same way PC's do, and there are a lot of quality macbooks that are prime for running ubuntu. The point is, it should be way easier to fix than it is.03:23
rboxfile a bug report03:24
webchat68I'm kind of lost on where to file the report. That's how I got here.........it really isn't a package problem, it is a philosophy problem (the developers did it without considering alternative hardware)03:27
ubottuIf you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its official !flavors, please report it using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs.03:28
EickmeyerIn your case, ubuntu-bug grub203:29
EickmeyerRegardless of it being a package problem, the problem would get solved in the package. Either way, that's where to start.03:30
webchat68Thank you. I was lost as to what package to report because the 'bug' is with the developer decision, not with grub.03:31
rboxsounds like a bug in grub03:31
Eickmeyerwebchat68: As a developer myself (a packager specifically), that's what I'd want someone to do to bring it to my attention. (grub is outside my purview).03:32
EickmeyerRather, *how* I'd want someone to bring something to my attention.03:32

rick89Hi my friends03:39
rick89Could you please recommend me a book or a video to learn about ubuntu?03:39
xxrick89: that's a very vague question03:40

morganu222.04 how to get natural scrolling04:46
guivercmorganu2, try looking at https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/mouse-touchpad-click.html.en04:47
guiverc(i gave stable URL;  https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/ubuntu-help/mouse-touchpad-click.html.en is the 22.04 or LTS url)04:48
morganu2guiverc it isnt there - this computer has mate. Am I Out of luck?04:51
morganu2I had looked where you said before and tweaks.04:51
morganu2I thought all 22.04 is lts04:52
morganu2I looked it up and am going to try this. https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/solved-natural-reverse-scrolling/319004:53
guivercI assumed you were using Ubuntu Desktop (ie. GNOME) thus the link I gave.. you'll need to say in future if using a flavor (such as Ubuntu-MATE & thus not the GNOME desktop). Sorry morganu204:57
guivercthere is no guarantee flavors are LTS; eg. for 18.04 one wasn't released as a LTS.. so always read release notes; my using the stable URL was just my error (I didn't change 'stable' to say 'lts' matching your 22.04 release)04:59
morganu2guiverc I should have said that right away.  -- so far that page didnt work but the final comment said something I dont understand.   ---   Eventually, what did it was the addition .Xmodmap file with “pointer = 1 2 3 5 4 6 7 8 9 10 11 12”05:00
morganu2MATE is a lot like old gnome. It also sais it is faster on old computers that cant use a compositing desktop (what's that?)05:02
morganu2and thanks for explaining. I didnt know 18.04 was not an LTS.05:03
guivercUbuntu 18.04 (desktop & most flavors) was LTS; but one flavor was not a LTS... ie. read release notes & don't just assume - being my point there05:03
morganu2(and I didnt know what you meant by a stable URL.05:03
guiverccompare the URL I first gave (which was manual for 22.10; ie. stable) & second URL (which was 22.04; ie. I changed STABLE in the url to say LTS to change manual link05:04
morganu2are the flavors the different DEs? -- > I had thought that - debian fedora redhat arch mangaro ubuntu linspire elementary - were the flavots.05:06
guiverc(url = link, sorry I can't provide much help with natural scrolling...  I don't use trackpads etc)05:06
guivercmorganu2, https://ubuntu.com/download/flavours will show the Ubuntu flavors; all are 100% Ubuntu, built on Ubuntu infrastructure; downloaded from ubuntu.com, from seeds on launchpad etc... just different install due to different packages used on the seed; all using only Ubuntu packages..  (flavors use 'universe' or community packages; main Ubuntu does not)05:07
morganu2I dont use a trackpad either. I use a mouse with a scrolling wheel.  Having to touch the mouse pointer to the skinny little line on the right takes just a bit of extra attention, again and again...05:07
morganu2oh that's celar about flavors. thank you.05:08
morganu2guiverc I am asking in #mate. (and celar should be CLEAR) --> new question. Can I add xubuntu as a de in the choices at logon? I am curious about it.05:22
morganu2When I looed it up I only saw the choice of the .iso.05:23
guivercmorganu2, you can install multiple desktops on a GNU/Linux system, my older box was a Ubuntu Desktop install, only which I added `lubuntu-desktop` (LXDE at the time, now LXQt), `xubuntu-desktop` (so Xfce) & `ubuntu-mate-desktop` thus MATE too.  I select at login which I'll use for the session.. there are pros & cons to having multiple DEs on a box; myself I love it, but don't generally recommend more than 2 or 305:24
guivercnote:  I used `xubuntu-desktop` so I got all of the Xubuntu experience; yes I could have added fewer packages just to get Xfce.. but I find it less troublesome to install everything, then remove anything I feel I don't want... (if adding fewer systems, the release can make a difference, I find flavor-desktop works well all releases without change05:25
morganu2guiverc  good. I will search to learn more. I want to try the windowing one (and need to look up if it is xubuntu or xfce) .. I appreciate the "teaching not just fixing".05:26
guivercXubuntu is the team that manage the Xfce desktop for Ubuntu; they of course use Xfce on their ISOs, being an official flavor05:27
morganu2I dont remember which but in the past mate and cinnamon didnt work. I only could use straight-ubuntu.  mate destroyed my video, like the horizontal sync was out (that's a term from analog video, heh) guiverc05:28
morganu2ubuntu improves tbs05:28
morganu218.04 would not work with the radio (wifi). My laptop saw 20 with windows and only 1 (mine) with ubuntu. And didnt work well outside of home.05:29
morganu2I jumped to get 20.0405:29
guivercI mentioned 2-3... the more you add, the more problems that can appear.. On my 'older' system I'm using as example; I wanted Kubuntu/KDE as well but couldn't get it stable enough... also installed them a number of times to get the order that was the best, before my final install.  that install was done in 2017 & survived until a month or so ago when the PSU on the box failed; why it's an 'older' box (it don't turn on)05:29
morganu2I justgave away 2 older computers. I didnt have the mental space after I got this one - alleyfind right as they put it out.05:30
guivercfyi:  kubuntu stable enough; kubuntu was good.. but with the other 4 desktops I was having stability issues with the system, thus opted to install without kubuntu; my then choice as others were all GTK (back then anyway)05:31
morganu2OK new question: is this the correct command to make a file called hwlist (in the directory I am in)  I couldnt find the file.05:32
morganu2the command showed it was doing it.05:32
morganu2If I send it to "less" can I then SAVE IT TO A FILE?05:32
guivercI don't see your command, I'd likley use `touch hwlist` to create an empty file of name 'hwlist'  (if it already exists; it'll just update the time/date specs to reflect now)05:33
morganu2kubuntu plasma was so strange. I gave up because I didnt know of any advantages.05:33
guivercyou could also use `cat >hwlist` and press enter, then type what you want to be in that file, then hit ^D (ctrl+D) when done... but there are many ways05:33
morganu2that was 8 years ago.05:34
morganu2I want lshw output in the file05:34
guivercin my eg ^ I didn't tell `cat` what to use as input; thus it used STDIN (standard in) meaning it waited for me to enter the contents for the file...   A ^D without anything more would have created an ~empty file05:34
morganu2ooops didnt show the command sudo lshw > hwlist05:35
guiverc`lshw >blah` will redirect output to a file titled `blah`... but you need `sudo` to get full results so yes `sudo lshw >hwlist` in your case05:35
morganu2confused will retry05:36
* guiverc uses too many words sorry05:37
morganu2nope I see it there now. OK what is the simple text editor for mate or do I have to use the old stuff, is it nano?05:38
guivercMATE was created by someone how used portugese from memory; pluma = pen (or more like quill)05:39
guiverc(MATE is a drink; sorry I can't recall all the details of the history, but there were some good Ubuntu Podcasts years ago on MATE & it's start; Alan Pope interviewing Martin Wimpress from memory)05:41
