ilovexfceubuntuthe last time i used appstore its stuck at loading the complete app details01:44
arrayboltXEilovexfceubuntu: I've had a lot of problems with the Ubuntu Software store before.01:55
arrayboltXEIt's usually more convenient to use the terminal to install applications, in my experience.01:55
arrayboltXEYou can use "apt-cache search" to look for apt packaged software, and "snap search" to look for Snap packages.01:55
ilovexfceubuntuthanks 01:56
arrayboltXEilovexfceubuntu: Once you find what you want, "sudo apt install <packagename>" or "sudo snap install <packagename>" can install it.01:57
arrayboltXEAlso, one more thing, you should be somewhat careful with Snap packages, since Snaps aren't subject to as much scrutiny as apt packages and *might* not always be safe.01:58
arrayboltXELook at the publisher of a Snap and ensure that there's a checkmark next to the name before installing it. If there isn't a checkmark, make sure you trust the publisher of the snap.01:58
ilovexfceubuntu(i thought a second what to respond) well the extra information was super helpful, even the answers02:00
ilovexfceubuntuthank you!!!02:00

xu-help44wWhen trying to upgrade, getting "The following packages have been kept back" for 24 packages like grub-common, grub-pc, etc.  Nothing else to update, just those 24.  Is this common? Do they eventually take care of themselves?19:16
arrayboltXExu-help44w: Probably just phased updates, yeah they should take care of themselves.19:23
ubottuSince 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.19:23
xu-help44wThanks!  I'll just keep that inmind when I do my updates and upgrades.19:24
arraybolt3Glad to be able to help!19:25
xu-help44won xubuntu 22.04, periodically run update and then upgrade19:25
xu-help0wGood morning - I did update as suggested by Software Updater on my 22.04 system and its is completely messed up. Desktop windows are not sizable. No exit button on top right hand corner. Generally total mess. Anyone else with similar issues.  Thankx19:26
xu-help0wI cannot even go back to previous versions19:28
xu-help44wnone of that here... I am running a VM, don't know if that matters.  I also do not have much installed, just used for small shell programming tasks19:28
arrayboltXExu-help0w: Can you try running "sudo apt install xubuntu-desktop" and see if that helps? Maybe yo uaccidentally uninstalled something important.19:29
xu-help0wWell my desktop has a ton of apps, ranging from containers, webservers and app servers etc., etc.,19:29
xu-help0wlet me give that a go.19:31
xu-help0wOne other question. Anyone have example of rsync with exclude options.  I cannot get that to work properly either.19:33

ubottuCorbenic[HeThey]: Hi!, Welcome to #xubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines. Enjoy your stay!21:28
PeGaSuSxu-help0w: usually something like `rsync -a --exclude="filename" --exclude="directory_name" /source/directory/ /destiny/directory/`. you need to add an `exclude="[file|folder]"` for each item you want to exclude, iirc21:34
PeGaSuSI also believe that you can use something like `--exclude={'filename','dir','another','one_more'}  /path/to/src/ /path/to/dest/`21:37
PeGaSuSxu-help0w: this might be of help: https://phoenixnap.com/kb/rsync-exclude-files-and-directories21:39
xu-help0wYes I tried that per example but it just copies everything anyway!!!21:47
