bluesceadaHey usrmerge failed and I tried to force it too much by solving the conflicts myself, for instance, it complained about /usr/bin/chvt and /bin/chvt both exist, since dpkg -S on both of them only showed /bin/chvt to be from any package, I removed/renamed /usr/bin/chvt - I did similar in continuation00:14
bluesceadaThen I ran this usrmerge command again, and it was successful. I could then finish apt upgrade (it couldn't because of usrmerge). Then I rebooted, but then I can only go to the recovery console, something is broken now00:15
bluesceadahow complicated can it be to merge /usr/bin with /bin directory, or what's the issue? Is this known? Couldn't find that much useful about usrmerge00:16

yolodid a few updates somehow 6.1.0 kernel was installed and no longer boots, falling back to 5.15, seems like 6.1.0 did not like the nvidia driver12:58
yoloor something else. why LTS updated kernel12:59
mgedminare you using the hardware enablement stack?  it gets kernel updates every 6 months, iirc13:00
yolofrom command line update it says: The following packages have been kept back:libnvidia-cfg1-525 libnvidia-common-525 etc, then from the GUI update it happily updates whatever, are the two in sync?13:00
yolodon't think I'm using it though, or I don't remember13:01
yoloi do see oem on my grub, how to disable that EnablementStack, can't stop booting no matter what13:01
mgedminat this point I'm afraid to recommend anything in case you need the oem kernel for your specific hardware13:03
yolook so I have to stay with it, changing grub to use generic kernel boot then to get by13:04
mgedmingenerally to use the GA kernel instead of the HWE kernel you install linux-generic and remove the linux-hwe-whatever package13:04
mgedminbut there are also related xorg etc. packages13:04
yolomight still work, but I can not risk to brick the system13:04
mgedminyou can have multiple kernels installed side-by-side and choose one from the boot menu13:05
mgedminthat way you can try alternatives without bricking the system13:05
mgedminI'm not sure how to explain to grub which one should be made the default flavor, though, in a way that would persist after installing kernel security updates13:06
mgedmindo report a bug if the 6.1.0 kernel has a regression with your hardware, that way there's a chance it'll get fixed13:06

=== ledeni_ is now known as ledeni
mgedminthe usual reasons are (1) phased updates (which would be hilariously terribad), (2) the packages conflict with something you have installed, (3) the packages need something else that hasn't made its way into the mirror yet, in order of decreasing likelihood13:29

I turned on pyinotify, in case it was a polling problem, but no dice. I'm15:31

sarnoldc_89: check journalctl for logs? maybe it writes logs in /var/log/ or somewhere similar?20:17
c_89sarnold there is no log on journalctl on ipp-usb with systemd, this is the log made yesterday when I try to start the daemon without systemd --> https://bpa.st/raw/VZZ6Q20:22
sarnoldare you sure your printer supports the ipp-over-usb thingy?20:23
c_89sarnold I try with: `ipp-usb udev` and `ipp-usb standalone` but nothing!20:23
c_89sarnold yes is supported20:24

gryrick89: sorry, I don't know either, and the h-node website does not output which devices it is. i would suggest to ask your question again adding the pastebin at the end20:58
eesti am having trouble installing a physical server with software RAID, the installer crashes and after some debugging i think this is because the installer looks for disks by their WWN, and for some reason both disks in this server has the same WWN which can be inspected by calling e.g. 'lsblk -S -d -o TRAN,NAME,TYPE,MODEL,SERIAL,SIZE,WWN' where SERIAL differs, but WWN is the same, anyone else seen this?21:10
sarnoldeest: wow, that sounds *weird*. it's not like i've seen a bunch of systems, but i've never seen anyone else mention that before :(21:11
rick89My friends, the bluetooth does not work on my laptop ASUS E410MA with Ubuntu 22.0421:12
rick89Could you please help me?21:12
eestsarnold: it is fairly intersting that looking in /dev/disk/by-id/ there exists a wwn- symlink, but it only points to one of the disks as can probably be expected21:14
sarnoldeest: hah, I hadn't thought of that..21:14
sarnoldeest: I think there's a way to report bugs in the menu inthe upper right corner of the screen21:15
eestso it feels fairly broken, but not sure what to do about it, it can also be seen with e.g. '/lib/udev/scsi_id --page=0x83 --whitelisted --device=/dev/sdb'21:15
arrayboltXErick89: Looking at the pastebin now.21:15
sarnoldeest: but I'm not sure what exactly could be done differently :( do your drives have a way to set the wnn field via firmware updater or similar?21:15
rick89arrayboltXE ok thanks21:15
eestnot sure... this is seen on a Dell VEP4600, a bit of an odd machine21:16
arrayboltXErick89: Can you do "lsusb | nc termbin.com 9999"? Usually Bluetooth won't show up in lspci since Bluetooth is confusingly usually attached over USB, despite being part of the WiFi internal card.21:16
rick89My bluetooth is internal21:16
arrayboltXErick89: Correct. Yet it will still show up as a USB device. Don't ask me why vendors do this, I don't know.21:17
arrayboltXEYep, there it is. "IMC Networks Bluetooth Radio"21:18
rick89Yes, there it is.21:18
arrayboltXErick89: OK, can you also do "lsmod | nc termbin.com 9999" so I can see if the usual Bluetooth driver is loaded or not?21:18
arrayboltXEAlright, I assume that when you look in the Bluetooth settings of your system, it tells you that there is no Bluetooth device?21:19
arrayboltXEOr is it simply unable to find any nearby Bluetooth-enabled things?21:19
rick89It doesn't turn on21:21
arrayboltXEOK. I see you're using a Realtek card, so let me look for drivers for it.21:22
oerheksi use bluez to control BT, once scanned, connected and trusted it works fine with the standard gnome tool21:22
arrayboltXETo be clear, your WiFi *does* work right?21:22
rick89arrayboltXE https://imgur.com/a/FmH5cvQ21:22
rick89arrayboltXE Yes, WiFi works well.21:22

rick89arrayboltXE https://imgur.com/a/GOuVmu421:25
arrayboltXErick89: OK, that's probably the missing package then. Try "sudo apt install linux-firmware-nonfree" and then reboot your system.21:25
arrayboltXEWait... that package doesn't exist anymore?21:26
* arrayboltXE does more digging21:26
oerheksrun apt update first?21:27

arrayboltXEoerheks: The package doesn't exist in modern Ubuntu any longer.21:27

rick89WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.21:30
arrayboltXEHmm... in says it's for some particular Broadcom chip.21:30
arrayboltXErick89: OK, let's try something new. Try "sudo dmesg | grep firmware | nc termbin.com 9999" and sent that link. That will hopefully tell me if there's missing firmware.21:31
arrayboltXE...ok well that didn't help a whole lot. Tar.21:32
arrayboltXESupposedly the kernel should support that device, so I'm not sure what's wrong.21:34
arrayboltXErick89: You could try "sudo modprobe -r btusb && sudo modprobe btusb" and see if that helps. That will unload and reload the Bluetooth driver.21:34
oerheksagain: i use bluez to control BT, once scanned, connected and trusted it works fine with the standard gnome tool21:34
rick89This laptop came with Linux and the bluetooth worked21:34
arrayboltXErick89: What distro did it come with?21:35
arrayboltXEoerheks: If his system is able to recognize the Bluetooth at all, then that might be a good thing to try.21:35
arrayboltXEWhich it sounds like that might be the case.21:35
arrayboltXErick89: And then you installed Ubuntu and the Bluetooth has never worked on it, correct?21:35
arrayboltXEoerheks: When you say you use bluez to control BT, how do you mean? I don't see any GUI tools in the bluez package.21:36
arrayboltXErick89: What happens if you run "bluetoothctl" in a terminal?21:37
rick89Agent registered21:37
=== mei is now known as Guest549
arrayboltXEYeah, it's not detecting the Bluetooth chip, I don't think.21:39
arrayboltXErick89: Try running "power on" while in bluetoothctl.21:40
=== edgren is now known as blippe
arrayboltXEOh that's weird, it turned on and then immediately back off again?21:41
arrayboltXErick89: Open a new terminal and try the "sudo dmesg | grep firmware | nc termbin.com 9999" thing again.21:42
arrayboltXEIf that doesn't give a whole lot of data, maybe just do "sudo dmesg | nc termbin.com 9999" so I can see the whole log and look for anything interesting that happened when you did the power cycle.21:42
arrayboltXEOK, that still isn't showing anything about a failed firmware load, so I'm going to assume that the chip is almost working and simply glitching.21:43
arrayboltXEThat has me thoroughly confused. There's not hardly anything about Bluetooth in dmesg, and the bit there is doesn't say anything about the odd "instant poweroff".21:45
arrayboltXErick89: Still looking to see if I can figure out what's wrong here. Thanks for your patience.21:47
rick89No, thanks for your help.21:47
rick89How can I know the exact model of bluetooth chip I have?21:48
arrayboltXElsusb -v might tell you. You can try "sudo lsusb -v | nc termbin.com 9999" if you want to share that with me, but I don't know if that will help much. Might come in handy, though.21:48
arrayboltXEFor me, I can see "Bus 003 Device 004: ID 8087:0026 Intel Corp. AX201 Bluetooth", so I assume it would print something similar on your device.21:49

oerhekssudo apt install rtl8821ce-dkms https://askubuntu.com/questions/1386578/no-wifi-adapter-found-asus21:51
oerheksor the git down below that answer21:51
arrayboltXEoerheks: +1, rick89: I think the gist of that post says to just do "sudo apt install rtl8821ce-dkms".21:52
oerheksworth a try, the 1st step21:53
arrayboltXEIf that comes with different firmware for the Bluetooth chip, that will almost certainly work. It's definitely the right driver for that chip.21:53
arrayboltXE(The WiFi chip I mean.)21:53
arrayboltXEAnd WiFi and Bluetooth are usually part of the same thing.21:53
oerheksi hope wifi keeps working21:54
rick89I got stuck at 60%21:54
arrayboltXErick89: Just give it a bit, it might take a while.21:55
arrayboltXEYeah, it's building the driver from source. It might stick there for a bit.21:55
arrayboltXEoerheks: In the event it breaks WiFi (which I don't think it will, it's the exact driver for that chip), simply uninstalling it should fix it.21:55
arrayboltXELooks normal. Just give it a bit.21:56
rick89It already ended21:57
rick89I am gonna restart the laptop to see if it works. Give me a second. I'll be right back.21:57
arrayboltXE+1, see you in a bit!21:57
arrayboltXEoerheks: I probably would have taken a *long* time to think of installing the other WiFi driver. Nice looking out.21:58
rick89arrayboltXE Hello again. It does not work. The WiFi keeps working22:03
oerheksso the DKMS trick did not work, try the other GIT step22:03
arrayboltXEIncase the link isn't still available, https://askubuntu.com/questions/1386578/no-wifi-adapter-found-asus22:04
arrayboltXEoerheks, rick89: I personally would uninstall the current driver (the one downloaded with apt) *BEFORE* trying to install the driver from Git.22:05
rick89how to?22:05
arrayboltXEsudo apt remove rtl8821ce-dkms22:05
rick89will it uninstall my wifi driver?22:07
arrayboltXErick89: It should leave the one you were using before, but I see your point.22:09
arrayboltXEHmm... I've seen reports of there being some sort of kernel patch that fixed it or something, or some firmware something that helped.22:09
arrayboltXErick89: You *might* be able to try installing a mainline kernel and see if it starts working then, but if there's any other way to fix the problem, that would be ideal.22:10
arrayboltXEI'm going to keep digging and see if there's other possible solutions.22:13

sarnoldhonestly that feels likely to be recoverable to me, but if he's here asking for help on it then it seems unlikely to be within his skills to do22:32
Jeremy31Likely have to remove the Mint source then remove foreign packages22:33
leftyfbnah, we've run into this before here. Pulling any packages from the mint repos overrides more than half of the Ubuntu core packages22:34
Jeremy31leftyfb: That is Pin priority that Mint uses22:34
leftyfbYou're talking hours and potentially days worth of work from someone who knows what they are doing. And that would work fine if we knew the exact state the system was in before becoming mintbuntu. It's not worth it.22:35

Dave92f1Hi all. In LXQt, is there some way to get it to leave my desktop icons where I put them?22:42
Dave92f1Right now if I move an icon to another screen location, it moves around all the other ones to fill in the "missing" spot on the desktop.22:42
Dave92f1I want it to leave things where I put them.22:42
arrayboltXELemme find out...22:42
arrayboltXEWhat version of Ubuntu?22:42
Dave92f1Lubuntu 2204 LTS.22:43
Dave92f1Let me correct what I said a little bit. It does that if I move a file (example: a PDF). It doesn't do that if I move a launcher.22:44
arrayboltXEDave92f1: Annoyingly, it looks like an iceon stops automatically moving once you've moved it and put it back once.22:44
arrayboltXESo you *might* have to move each individual icon, then put it back where it was, in order to get it to allow you to control everything.22:45
arrayboltXEOnce I do that, it looks like it does things the way you're hoping for it to.22:45
arrayboltXELemme reboot the test system and see if it sticks.\22:45
arrayboltXEYeah, looks like things persist after a reboot.22:46
Dave92f1arrayboltXE: Hey, yeah that did it! I selected ALL the icons with the mouse (a big rectangle selection), moved them all a bit to the right, then back again. Now they stay where put.22:46
arrayboltXEOh nice, I didn't think to do that. \o/22:46
Dave92f1arrayboltXE: Do I need to do it again for all new files?22:47
arrayboltXEUnsure, but I think so.22:47
arrayboltXEI don't know if there's anyway to turn off sorting in PCManFM-Qt. You might look in the preferences.22:48
Dave92f1arrayboltXE: That sucks. I'm on the edge of swapping DEs anyway. Do KDE and GNOME and Cinnamon do the same thing?22:48
arrayboltXE(PCManFM-Qt is the part of Lubuntu that handles desktop icons.)22:48

HansYou guys and girls are really good at computer right23:02
HansI have a problem.23:02
HansSo I set up a file server at home running and really old Ubuntu OS. I access the server from my windows computer. I did this about 15 years ago, not know much about Ubuntu (having only used in on occations for fun).23:02
HansI thought it was a smart idea, allocating space for me and my daughter on the server.23:02
HansNow my daughter, now married and has not been living at home for over 10 years, wants her files on the Ubuntu server. So I thought this will be easy - I'll just change the permissions to me and send them to her. As I am an administrator on my Ubuntu sever, I thought I'd just log in and change it.23:02
HansBut I can't. I've tried grafic OS and also the terminal with chmod, but whatever I do the servers tells me to fck off.23:02
