SpecstormHello everyone00:35
SpecstormI'm trying to update and keep getting error messages, was wondering if anyone could help00:36
arraybolt3Specstorm: Sure, what's the error?00:36
Specstorm"Package Download Failed"00:37
arraybolt3Specstorm: What application are you trying to update with?00:38
arraybolt3Specstorm: OK, can you open a terminal (Konsole), and run "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade"?00:38
SpecstormI'm pretty new to all this so apologies if I'm not up to date00:38
arraybolt3This will attempt to update your system and will probably give more meaningful error data.00:38
Specstormthank you so much for your help I'll do that now00:39
arraybolt3Sure thing, glad to help!00:39

arraybolt3Specstorm: Oy. Usually you should paste output like that into a pastebin website like dpaste.com.00:40
arraybolt3THere's an anti-flooding bot that will have muted you for 60 seconds, sorry for the inconvenience.00:41
arraybolt3Specstorm: However, I do see the problem here. Ubuntu 21.10 (Impish) has gone end-of-life and no longer receives updates. The best solution is to update to a supported version of Kubuntu like 22.04 LTS.00:41
arraybolt3Since you're using the version of Kubuntu immediately before a supported version, there's two ways to do this. You can either install from scratch, or you can upgrade the system without reinstalling.00:42
arraybolt3If you want to do an upgrade to 22.04, back up your data, and then follow the instructions ubottu is about to link to:00:42
ubottuEnd-Of-Life is when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop. Make sure to update Ubuntu before it goes EOL so you get updates promptly for newly-discovered security vulnerabilities. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOL and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more info. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades00:42
arraybolt3(ubottu is a bot that has useful info like that.)00:42
Specstormgotcha. thanks for all that00:43
Specstormby back up my data you mean on an external00:43
Specstormis there a way to preserve my shortcuts/bookmarks etc?00:43
arraybolt3Make sure that you're viewing all hidden files, and copy those too, then you can import them into Firefox (or whatever browser you use) if you end up having to reinstall.00:43
arraybolt3If the upgrade goes well, you shouldn't have to restore anything, you just want to have the data backed up so that you can recover if things go south.00:44
Specstormso the backup is just in case00:44
Specstormgot it00:44
Specstormi haven't been using this machine that long, so it's really just the bookmarks mostly00:44
arraybolt3What browser are you using?00:44
arraybolt3I can make sure there's a documented bookmark restore procedure for it.00:45
Specstormmozilla at the moment00:45
arraybolt3Perfect, I've restored bookmarks before, it's easy. Just make sure that you copy all of the files in your home folder, including hidden ones.00:45
arraybolt3*all of the files and folders00:45
arraybolt3You should be able to open Dolphin, click the button in the upper-right corenr of the screen that has three horizontal lines, then click Show Hidden Files.00:46
arraybolt3Then you can just select all, copy, then paste to your backup drive.00:46
Specstormwhich screen should i do select all from00:48
arraybolt3In Dolphin, the file manager.00:48
Specstormagain, pardon my ignorance, I'm used to Windows/Mac00:48
arraybolt3:) We've all been there. You should have seen my first experiments with Linux :P00:49
Specstormright but i mean under "Places"00:49
Specstormit's got Home, Desktop, etc00:49
Specstormi clicked to show hidden files00:49
arraybolt3You want to be in the folder where you can see 'Documents', 'Pictures', etc.00:50
arraybolt3There should be a ton of weird-looking folders that have a . at the start of their name too.00:50
arraybolt3That's called your home folder.00:50
arraybolt3Once you're in that folder, then you can select all and copy.00:51
arraybolt3You can probably get to that folder by clicking "Home" under "Places".00:51
Specstormi think i got it00:52
Specstormcopied to external00:52
arraybolt3Nice. Now you should be able to follow the https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades procedure and be good to go.00:53
Specstormi'm on that page now00:53
Specstormit's a little confusing00:54
arraybolt3Hmm... it does assume a lot of knowledge, I see :P00:54
arraybolt3Specstorm: OK, so, first, can you run in Konsole "cat /etc/apt/sources.list | nc termbin.com 9999" and share the link that outputs?00:54
arraybolt3(Sorry, I didn't realize it was as obscure as it was when I first linked to it, I'm looking at it and am now like "oh wow they left a lot out".)00:55
Specstormyeah you were like "...and you should be good to go!"00:55
SpecstormI looked at it and was like "ehhhhh *sweats profusely*00:56
Specstormis the link that it produced00:56
Roeyhello, I have this circa-2009 laptop that I'm installing Kubuntu 22.10 on and would like to set it up with BTRFS on top of LUKS.  I tried insalling using Automatic Partitioning, but it creates these EFI/GPT partitions that the laptop can't boot from.  So I am trying to manually partition, and would like the installer to work off of those.  Can anyone help me out here?  Much thanks.00:56
arraybolt3The command above? I think you probably pasted the wrong link, I expected a termbin.com link.00:56
Roeyoh hey Specstorm & arraybolt3 o/00:57
arraybolt3Roey: o/00:57
Roeyarraybolt3: if you have time, I'd like to pick up where we left off00:57
arraybolt3Roey: Hang tight a bit, currently trying to do an EOL release upgrade.00:57
Roeyaye, sure00:58
arraybolt3Specstorm: cat /etc/apt/sources.list | nc termbin.com 999900:58
SpecstormThis system was installed using small removable media (e.g. netinst, live or single CD). The matching "deb cdrom" entries were disabled at the end of the installation process.00:59
SpecstormFor information about how to configure apt package sources,00:59
Specstormsee the sources.list(5) manual.00:59
Specstormthat's what it says at the end if that's relevant00:59
arraybolt3Specstorm: I really need to see the whole file, the above command will produce a link that will show it to me.00:59
Specstormis that a vertical slash in there00:59
arraybolt3Bar character, should be on the same key as the backslash.01:00
arraybolt3(The exact contents that the file should have may vary, so I'd like to make sure I don't accidentally provide wrong instructions.)01:00
Specstormi think that's what you were looking for correct01:01
arraybolt3Yep, perfect.01:01
Specstorm*ahem* what *WE were looking for01:01
arraybolt3OK, next, run "sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list", and enter your password, that will open a text editor so we can modify the file.01:01
Specstormok got it01:02
Specstormyes it opened up a bunch pf colorful text01:02
arraybolt3OK, one moment...01:02
Specstorma series of blue links appeared01:02
arraybolt3Specstorm: OK, press and hold Ctrl+K until the entire file is empty. The old contents were useful for knowing what the new contents should be, but they're not needed anymore.01:03
arraybolt3Then copy this text and paste it into the file: https://dpaste.com/GRYHP2LXN That will point your system to use the repository where the old software is located.01:04
Specstormi pasted that exact link in there01:05
arraybolt3Oy... no, open the link, it's a pastebin link to the text the file should contain.01:05
Specstormok yeah this looks like it makes a lot more sense01:06
arraybolt3OK, once that's done, press Ctrl+S to save, then Ctrl+X to exit.01:07
Specstormdo i hit enter after i've pasted it in?01:07
Specstormgot it ok01:07
arraybolt3Shouldn't need to press Enter.01:07
Specstormok saved and exited01:07
arraybolt3OK, next, run "sudo apt update && sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop", this will make sure that the Kubuntu desktop metapackage is installed (it should be installed by default but sometimes it can get uninstalled), which will help with the update.01:08
Specstormwhen you say && that means type them separately right01:08
Specstormor do i literally type that with && in the middle01:08
arraybolt3You can type them separately, or you can type the && literally and it will execute both.01:08
arraybolt3(The && basically says "if the previous command succeeded, execute the next one". It also lets me put multiple commands on one line.)01:09
Specstormit's running it01:09
Specstorm2 of them got 404 not founds01:10
Specstormbut the rest look pretty good01:10
Specstormcertainly better than before when it couldn't get any packages at all01:10
arraybolt3Hmm, can you run "ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d | nc termbin.com 9999"?01:10
arraybolt3That will let me see if you have PPAs enabled that may interfere.01:10
Specstormit outputted a link01:11
arraybolt3If you could paste the link into the chat that will let me look at it.01:11
arraybolt3OK, so there *are* PPAs enabled. Let me make sure that 22.04 has those same repositories available real quick...01:12
arraybolt3Specstorm: Just to make sure, you did enable the Lutris PPA from this link, right? https://launchpad.net/~lutris-team/+archive/ubuntu/lutris01:13
SpecstormI think so01:13
Specstormyeah I definitely recall doing something with Lutris01:14
Specstormbut i don't think I really need it01:14
SpecstormLutris, I mean01:14
arraybolt3We should probably either uninstall it or make sure it gets updated, not leave an out-of-date version on the system.01:15
Specstormi'm fine with uninstalling it01:15
Specstormit's been nothing but trouble anyhow01:15
arraybolt3OK, do that (probably something like "sudo apt purge lutris*") and then we can remove the Lutris PPA.01:15
arraybolt3As for Wine, you almost certainly *do* want to keep that, so we'll make sure it won't present a hangup and then get it to update too.01:16
Specstormlooks like it removed Lutris01:16
arraybolt3OK, next do "sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris-team-ubuntu-lutris-impish.list". That will remove the PPA.01:16
arraybolt3After that, do you know what variant of Wine you installed? Stable, Development, or Staging? If not, we can use commands to find out.01:17
Specstormi'm not sure01:17
arraybolt3OK, do "apt list --installed | grep wine | nc termbin.com 9999". (This will print a warning about "avoid using this in scripts" or something similar, that's normal.)01:18
Specstormok done01:18
Specstormit output a link01:18
arraybolt3Interesting, looks like you installed Wine from the Ubuntu repositories even though the WineHQ repos were added. That will actually simplify things.01:19
arraybolt3OK, we can just do "sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq-impish.sources".01:20
Specstormit says no such file or directory01:21
Specstormi think it may have removed it already01:22
Specstormis that possible?01:22
arraybolt3Maybe, if you do "ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d", do you see the winehq-impish.sources file in there?01:22
Specstormthat command isn't working for some reason01:23
Specstormbut it said earlier "the following application will be removed:: --Lutris"01:23
arraybolt3That's odd. Are you sure you're not makes a typo?01:24
Specstormls /etc/apt/sources.list.d01:24
Specstormthat's what i typed01:24
arraybolt3Hmm. OK, can you run "ls /etc/apt | nc termbin.com 9999" and share the link from that?01:24
arraybolt3(I really hope there wasn't a bug or something in Lutris that deleted the whole sources.list.d folder.)01:25
Specstormit's saying ls command not found01:26
Specstormls as in LS, right01:26
Specstormfirst letter L01:26
Specstormhmm yeah01:26
arraybolt3That's extremely odd. Try closing this Konsole window and opening a new one.01:26
arraybolt3Then just run "ls" all on its own (I don't need to see the output from that).01:26
Specstormok that worked01:27
arraybolt3Whew. Not sure what got scrambled with the old terminal. OK, try "ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d" again and see if the winehq file is in there.01:27
Specstormyeah for some reason that one doesn't work01:27
Specstormi just retyped it01:28
Specstormit doesn't return anything for that whole command01:28
arraybolt3Does "ls /etc/apt" show anything?01:28
Specstormyeah a bunch of blue text01:29
Specstormbut "sources.list" is in white01:29
arraybolt3If it's actually just showing no results when you run "ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d", then we shoulld be good (the previous rm command probably did what it was supposed to). If it's saying that it can't find the folder, then there's a problem.01:29
Specstormls /etc/apt works01:29
arraybolt3And just to verify, when you run "ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d", it outputs nothing, not even an error message, correct?01:29
Specstormthat's correct01:29
arraybolt3OK, then we're OK.01:29
arraybolt3That's what we want to end up with.01:30
arraybolt3OK, next, "sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade".01:30
Specstormok done01:30
Specstormlet's see01:30
arraybolt3That will get your system ready for the final update procedure.01:31
arraybolt3(full-upgrade, confusingly, doesn't upgrade to the next release, it just makes sure all your software is up-to-date for this release.)01:31
arraybolt3(The actual "upgrade to a new release of Ubuntu" command is "sudo do-release-upgrade", which is hopefully the next command to run.)01:31
Specstormwhat should it say in response to the previous comman01:32
arraybolt3It should finish without errors, and it may have installed some stuff.01:32
SpecstormErr:2 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu impish Release01:32
Specstorm  404  Not Found [IP: 80]01:32
Specstormthat was the only error01:32
arraybolt3...why is it still trying... can you do "cat /etc/apt/sources.list | nc termbin.com 9999" and share the link again?01:33
SpecstormE: The repository 'http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu impish Release' no longer has a Release file.01:33
SpecstormN: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.01:33
arraybolt3It shouldn't be trying to access us.archive.ubuntu.com right now.01:33
Specstormsure 1 sec01:33
arraybolt3Ah, I see. There's still some lines at the top of the file that shouldn't be there.01:34
Specstormthe file you told me to replace?01:34
arraybolt3Do "sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list" again, and delete everything before the first "old-releases" line (Ctrl+K to remove lines).01:34
arraybolt3Specstorm: Yes. It looks like you may have not deleted everything that was in the file originally.01:35
Specstormok yeah01:35
Specstormit left a few lines last time01:35
Specstormwait was i supposed to leave something01:35
arraybolt3Only the old-releases lines.01:35
arraybolt3If those are gone too, no problem, we can put those back. :)01:36
Specstormfile's empty right now01:36
arraybolt3https://dpaste.com/GRYHP2LXN <-- the contents the file should have01:36
Specstormok, all set01:37
Specstormsave and exit like before right01:37
Specstormfile contents should be what they're supposed to be now01:38
arraybolt3Nice. OK, let's do "sudo apt update && sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop" one more time, then "sudo apt full-upgrade".01:39
arraybolt3(The previous times we used those commands, they probably didn't do anything since the "sudo apt update" step kept failing.)01:39
Specstormok yeah01:40
Specstormthis time it did  a bunch of stuff01:40
arraybolt3Nice, that's hopeful!01:40
Specstormnow it says "122 packages can be upgraded"01:41
Specstormno errors01:41
arraybolt3Woot! "sudo apt full-upgrade"01:42
Specstormlooks good, i'm gonna hit Y to continue01:43
Specstormit's working01:43
Specstormis this the actual upgrade happening now? i won't need to reinstall anything?01:44
arraybolt3This is just the update to make the upgrade possible.01:44
arraybolt3All of the software has to be the latest version *for the current release* in order for the upgrade to the next release to go smoothly.01:45
Specstormok so far so good01:45
arraybolt3Specstorm: Nice. Is it done?01:46
arraybolt3constancies: o.01:46
Specstormso far the only kink was01:46
Specstormdpkg: warning: unable to delete old directory '/var/lib/fwupd': Directory not empty01:46
Specstormit appears to be paused at 53%01:47
arraybolt3Just wait for it, stalls are normal.01:47
Specstormok cool01:47
arraybolt3Also the warning doesn't look worrisome to me.01:47
Specstorm(not that my opinion is significat but)01:47
SpecstormThanks again for being by my side through all this, it is hugely appreciated01:48
arraybolt3Glad to be able to help!01:48
Specstormconsider my faith in humanity renewed afresh01:48
Specstormby this interaction01:48
Specstormok 97%01:49
arraybolt3A lot of times that last percent takes the longest :P01:50
arraybolt3(Especially if the kernel was updated and it's generating new initramfs files)01:50
Specstormhovering at 9901:51
Specstormlooks like it's done01:52
constanciesSo I was wondering, though I'm sure you get this a lot: has there been consideration towards making a Kubuntu matrix room? Perhaps bridging it to IRC?01:53
arraybolt3Specstorm: Woot!01:53
arraybolt3Specstorm: Alright, now for the moment of truth. "sudo do-release-upgrade"01:53
Specstormit's saying to reboot before upgrading01:54
arraybolt3Specstorm: Makes sense.01:54
Specstormwait sowhat should it have said01:55
Specstormwhen i ran that^01:55
arraybolt3Normally it should give you prompts to start upgrading, but if it needs a reboot first, that sounds reasonable, so I'd go ahead and reboot.01:55
Specstormok cool so reboot my machine then and retry the sudo do-release-upgrade command?01:56
Specstormalrighty, I'll do that now01:56
SpecstormI'll pop back into the chat once I'm done and rebooted, if that's ok01:57
arraybolt3Sounds good!01:57
Specstorm*thumbs up* thank you!01:57
Specstormsee you on the upgrade / flipside01:57
arraybolt3specstorm1: Welcome back!02:01
specstorm1i ran sudo do-release-upgrade02:01
specstorm1i think so02:02
specstorm1continue y/n02:02
specstorm1i'm gonna continue02:02
arraybolt3Woot! Everything else should be straightforward from here.02:02
arraybolt3It will probably want to remove packages at some point, it is safe to allow it to do that.02:03
specstorm1it says updates available!02:03
specstorm1can i update through dolphin now?02:03
arraybolt3If it wants to apply pudates, press "y" and then Enter to let it do it.02:03
specstorm1oh wait yeah nevermind *facepalm*02:04
arraybolt3(You won't be able to update the system with Discover until after the upgrade is complete, and the upgrade will take a while.)02:04
specstorm1that's what it's saying02:04
specstorm1i'm gonna pull the trigger02:04
specstorm1alright it's doing its thing02:04
specstorm1it says the process may take several hours (the download itself it says 5 mins)02:05
IrcsomeBot<rrsriram> Quick question.  Can I create a partition under home during installation?  Something like ~/work.02:05
arraybolt3It says that, but it's unlikely to take that long.02:05
arraybolt3Unless you're on a 1Mbps connection or something :P02:05
arraybolt3I'm not sure why they left it saying that some steps could take hours, but, they did, and stuff usually goes way faster.02:06
specstorm1nah I think I'm a bit faster than that haha02:07
specstorm1at halfway02:07
specstorm1or no it was halfway on that particular part i think02:08
specstorm1either way everything seems to be going smoothyl02:08
arraybolt3specstorm1: Still going good?02:24
specstorm1i had to step away for a moment02:35
specstorm1it's configuring the firefox snap now02:36
arraybolt3Nice. It dawns on me, that *might* end up needing a bookmark restore even though this wasn't a full reinstall, but that's quite easy.02:40
specstormit's asking02:48
specstormConfiguration file '/usr/share/sddm/scripts/Xsetup'02:48
specstorm ==> File on system created by you or by a script.02:48
specstorm ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.02:48
specstormWhat would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:02:48
specstorm    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version02:48
specstorm    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version02:48
specstormhope i'm not interrupting anything02:50

specstormjust removing obsolete packages now03:45

specstormfor all the help04:28
specstormyou guys are awesome04:29

Eickmeyer!cookie | arraybolt304:29
ubottuarraybolt3: Wow! You're such a great helper, you deserve a cookie!04:29
specstormmaybe an entire sleeve of cookies methinks04:29
arraybolt3specstorm: Glad to help!04:30
arraybolt3Congrats on a successful upgrade!04:30
specstorm*praying hands emoji*04:30
arraybolt3Eickmeyer: :)04:30
specstormi'm thrilled04:30
arraybolt3specstorm: Oh hey...04:30
arraybolt3...do your bookmarks still work in Firefox?04:30
arraybolt3If not, we should import them now.04:30
specstormlet's take a look04:31
arraybolt3Hopefully they'll just work though.04:31
arraybolt3OK, so they're not there. The Import Bookmarks button may or may not work, but that's OK, there's a different way to import them.04:31
specstormit's not showing any but to be honest i may not have had any bookmarks on this machine '=D04:32
specstormmy firefox history is all there04:32
arraybolt3I pretty much expected that, one moment while I find the exact right file...04:32
specstormit basically just rebooted with the upgrades and kept my session open04:32
arraybolt3specstorm: OK, so to make the bookmarks work, click the hamburger menu in the upper-right corner of the screen, then Bookmarks, then Manage Bookmarks.04:33
arraybolt3(Even if this isn't strictly necessary now, you'll probably want to know how to do this later.)04:34
arraybolt3Hmm... actually if it loaded your session and your history is there, then it probably autodetected things and you might be right that there were never any bookmarks, but lets find out anyway.04:34
specstormok i'm in manage bookmarks04:35
arraybolt3OK, see the Import and Backup button? Click that, then hover over Restore, and click Choose File.04:35
arraybolt3In the window that pops up, right-click, and click "Show hidden files".04:35
specstormhmm ok04:36
specstormi don't see any files04:36
arraybolt3Click your Home folder then.04:36
arraybolt3Then double-click ".mozilla".04:36
specstormthere's a restore file04:36
specstormwhen i hover04:36
specstormthat says jan 29th04:36
specstormmaybe i just click that?04:36
arraybolt3We're probably not there yet.04:36
arraybolt3The file is a bit buried.04:37
arraybolt3Once you're in ".mozilla", double-click "firefox". There should be three folders inside this.04:37
arraybolt3One of them will have a very weird name like "243bb87x4.default" - double-click that one.04:37
arraybolt3Then there should be a folder in that called "bookmarkbackups", and inside that, there should be a file you can open to restore the bookmarks.04:38
specstormi opened the one with the weird name ending in default04:39
specstormi don't see a bookmarkbackups folder though04:39
specstormjust one that says times.json04:39
arraybolt3It's not at the very top of the list?04:40
arraybolt3There should be a ton of stuff in there. If there's not, then I guess the system probably imported stuff properly.04:40
specstormit must have04:41
specstormall i see is times.json04:41

thingsisQuick question from a non-Kubuntu user: I assume the backports for plasma are done in a way where an upgrade to the next release of Kubuntu remains possible. Non-LTS version. Would that be a correct assumption?11:57
thingsisJust posted a question before identifying accidentally. Not sure if it arrived. Can someone let me know if it did? Apologies for that!12:05
mparilloYou asked about backports not blocking a release upgrade.12:22
thingsisYep. Thanks. Won't repost then :-)12:23
mparilloNot a real answer, but I would assume so as well. But I would never release upgrade without being confident in my backups of my personal data. Backups are always important, but especially before a release upgrade.12:25
thingsisFully agree on the backups. As I said I am not a Kubuntu user so just trying to figure out how things work over here. I am Debian on the server and Gentoo on the Desktop - not that it matters.12:26

PeteLHello, I am running Kubuntu 22.04. I use multiple monitors, which I understand support for this is greatly improved in Plasma 5.27. Does anyone know if/when Kubuntu 22.04 will get Plasma >= 5.27?19:07
PeteLThank you!19:07
chemicalvampI was hoping somebody could help me in installing grub, I installed kubuntu and there is no grub20:26
chemicalvampI can see /mnt/bootefi/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi but i have tried 3 or 4 different guides and it keeps failing20:28
chemicalvampgrub-install: error: failed to get canonical path of `/cow'.20:30
pibarnashi folks. Everytime I plug a pendrive plasma opens ark instead of the expected dolphin. Any clues to solve the issue? =/20:41
chemicalvampcp -R /mnt/bootefi/ /mnt/root/boot/ does nothing, no output, and nothing was copied20:48
geniiInstead of cp -R /source/ /destination/   you should use either cp -R /source /destination/   ( to copy the entire directory of /source into the /destination directory) or either cp -R /source/* /destination/ to copy the contents of /source into the /destination directory )21:11
alkisgcp -a /source/. /dest/ ==> also copies the dot files, which * omits21:36
chemicalvampI have a kubuntu install on sda6 and i can see /EFI/ on sda1 but no guide i have followed will install grub21:40
chemicalvampgrub-install: error: cannot find a device for /boot/grub (is /dev mounted?).21:41
chemicalvampkubuntu install is mounted to /mnt/kubu21:42
alkisgSorry I only read the last line with the cp dir/*, and thought I'd mention the cp dir/. :D About your issue, can you upload the output of this? ( sudo lsblk -fe7; sudo fdisk -l; ls /sys/firmware/efi ) | nc termbin.com 999921:42
alkisgSo, ls /sys/firmware/efi shows an error, right?21:44
chemicalvampi dont know what state these guides have left me in, and this live usb is persistant so would a reboot even reset it21:45
chemicalvampthe live usb has a /sys/firmware/ but no efi21:46
alkisgIf `ls /sys/firmware/efi` shows an error, it means you're booted in BIOS mode. This means it's not easy to install grub-efi. It's best to reboot, press F12 to show the BIOS boot manager, and select "UEFI: stick" instead of "stick"21:46
chemicalvampohh i see21:46
chemicalvampi will return. thanks21:46
alkisgI.e. the bios boot manager (usually F12) shows a stick twice; once for bios and once for uefi mode21:47
alkisg(if the stick is properly written, to support both modes)21:47

chemicalvampokay, so now do i try to grub-install /dev/sda121:51
chemicalvampor should i run that command again?21:51
alkisgNo, now you're supposed to mount /mnt, efi, run, sys, dev etc21:52
alkisgAre you following a guide?21:52
chemicalvampi have tried 4 guides at least21:52
alkisgI'm about to leave, do you want help over vnc?21:52
alkisgOK, sudo apt install x11vnc; x11vnc -connect alkisg.ltsp.org21:53
alkisgYou're booted with a live stick, and the goal is to install grub-efi in your ssd?21:54
chemicalvampyes, its an m.2 ssd on the mobo21:54
chemicalvampwindows gets 200gb kubuntu gets 4021:55
alkisgOK, do the vnc commands I mentioned above21:55
chemicalvampyup, i ran it already, still going21:56
alkisgI didn't receive a connection21:56
alkisgThe live cd is kubuntu, it's xorg, not wayland, right?21:56
chemicalvampits still installing21:56
chemicalvampI am in usb to RAM and its kinda slow21:57
alkisgHmm, I can't type in the terminal, wait21:58
alkisgI didn't see the whole story, but I'm guessing you tried to install kubuntu in bios mode, while your disk was in gtp mode22:02
alkisgchemicalvamp: OK try to reboot22:03
chemicalvampyour a magician man, ty. brb22:03
alkisgI'm not sure if ubuntu managed to create an nvram entry for itself; but grub is installed, so even if it didn't, you should be able to select the whole disk with f12 or from del=>bios=>boot order22:04
