tomreynhi manu_00:22
manu_i need help00:22
manu_i don't know how to use linux00:22
tomreynwith ubuntu? just describe the issue then, or ask your question00:23
manu_I installed obs with snap but installig the plugins or themes is hard because i can't find the paths00:24
manu_like windows00:24
manu_sorry if my english is bad im from argentina00:24
manu_and other things need to execute or install from the terminal and I don't know how to use it too00:25
tomreynyour english is fine, i'm not sure i can help with OBS, but maybe someone else can, if you describe the issue more closely. it's also good to provide some background, such as which ubuntu version you are using.00:26
manu_right now im using lubuntu00:26
ravagemanu_: https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/how-do-i-install-obs-plugins-if-snap-was-used-to-install-ubuntu-20-04.123557/00:26
manu_i can't find obs in the snap folder00:36
tomreynso this, in a terminal, comes back as "does not exist"?   ls -l $HOME/snap/obs-studio00:38
manu_the termina says cannot access '%HOME/snap/obs-studio': No such file or directory00:40
arraybolt3$, not %.00:41
manu_it says the same00:42
manu_cannot access '/home/manu/snap/obs-studio': No such file or directory00:42
sarnoldhave you started obs? maybe you have to run it once to have it created?00:42
manu_obs is open00:43
manu_do i restart?00:43
sarnoldno, I don't think that'll help. I'm not sure what to suggest next :(00:43
tomreynsnap list obs*00:44
tomreyndoes this say "error: no matching snaps installed" or something else?00:46
manu_ manu@manu-Linux:~$ ls -l %HOME/snap/obs-studio00:47
manu_ls: cannot access '%HOME/snap/obs-studio': No such file or directory00:47
manu_manu@manu-Linux:~$ ls -l $HOME/snap/obs-studio00:47
manu_ls: cannot access '/home/manu/snap/obs-studio': No such file or directory00:47
manu_manu@manu-Linux:~$ ls -l $HOME/snap list obs-studio00:47
manu_ls: cannot access 'list': No such file or directory00:47
tomreyndon't paste in here, and you'd need to use this command on its own, on a separate line.00:49
tomreynmanu_: we can read you again now, if you have more to say00:50
manu_it says No such file or directory00:52
tomreynsnap list obs*       would not say this00:53
tomreynyou must have accidentially typed something else00:53
tomreyni need to leave for now, but keep your questions coming. good luck.00:54
manu_ok thsnks for the help00:54
manu_this is what a typed00:55
sarnoldah, it looks like you missed the *00:57
sarnoldoh you know00:58
sarnoldI don't think that even works00:58
manu_you're right it says the same00:58
sarnoldI've got lots of snaps installed that match b* and c* but snap list 'b*' and snap list 'c*' show nothing :(00:59
manu_this is why i say i don't undestand linux, this things happen01:00
sarnoldthe frustrating thing is that the *old* package manager did this kind of thing perfectly :(01:00
manu_but i found a very unconfortable and rare way to find the  obs studio folder01:01
manu_in obs, i go to files, open settings directory and it takes me to .config folder and there is obs-studio01:02

manu_but when i go to the desktop folder, the .config folder does not appear01:03
sarnoldit probably hides files and directories that start with .01:03
manu_can i change that?01:04

juno__I did an apt upgrade and I saw this message: "The following security updates require Ubuntu Pro" Does this mean I need to pay money for security updates?01:24
juno__I'm on version 20.04.501:25
arraybolt3juno__: No.01:27
arraybolt3juno__: All of the packages that have always gotten security updates will continue to get security updates without Ubuntu Pro.01:28
arraybolt3juno__: Ubuntu Pro is a new service offering security updates for an *additional* several thousand packages that didn't used to get reliable updates in Ubuntu.01:28
arraybolt3juno__: So without Ubuntu Pro, you'll get exactly the same security updates as you've always gotten. If you want, you can use Ubuntu Pro for free for up to five machines to get the additional updates that are now also available.01:28
juno__Oh nice01:29
arraybolt3juno__: If you *do* want to sign up for Ubuntu Pro, just make a free Ubuntu One account, then go here: https://ubuntu.com/pro and click the "Your Subscriptions" link - you will automatically have five free Ubuntu Pro licenses there, along with instructions for attaching machines to Ubuntu Pro.01:30

zterm86When I pause audio, and unpause it with my music player, it's extremely choppy. (But eventually plays normally).02:45
zterm86I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu and have tried Rhythmbox, CMS, Elisa, VLC. I'm not sure how to correct this, but was hoping to for school lectures.02:46
arraybolt3What hardware are you using currently?02:47
arraybolt3zterm86: ^02:47
zterm86I have dell XPS 13, and I believe this is RealTek, is there a specific command you want me to run?02:48
sarnoldman, advice from various stack exchange sites, forums, etc, is all over the place02:54
sarnoldit'd be easy to go insane trying to test those weird advices one at a time and everything02:55

arraybolt3zterm86: Sorry, got distracted.02:59
arraybolt3zterm86: Hmm, that's probably a fairly fast system. Let me do some digging...02:59
zterm86Thank you and I super appreciate it. Sorry, I typically try to do more, but I'm a bit behind of school with covid. :|03:00
zterm86Any pointers are appreciated, even if you don't have the solution.03:00
sarnoldzterm86: oh dang :( sorry to hear it :(03:01

arraybolt3This is probably a silly suggestion, but you might find Bluetooth audio to be more smooth.03:02
* sarnold marks down 08 feb 2023 as the first time someone suggests bluetooth audio would be more smooth :)03:02
zterm86I can try this. I did headphones, no headphones, but haven't tried my bluetooth headphones yet. Testing now.03:02
BinarySaviorsarnold, the power supply fixed the issue :D03:03
sarnoldBinarySavior: AWESOME :D03:03
zterm86Darn, not quite.03:06
arraybolt3That's odd - Bluetooth audio bypasses the audio subsystem of the rest of the system entirely (I believe).03:06
arraybolt3What other apps do you have running on the system, and how much RAM do you have?03:07
arraybolt3Also, can you share the output of the command "uname -r"?03:07
zterm8616 GB (5 used), 11th gen i7,03:08
arraybolt3I wonder if installing the OEM kernel would be helpful.03:08
zterm86I'd be willing to give it a try. I have the unbuntu mainline installer installed. I was troubleshooting another issue in the past.03:09
arraybolt3I'd try "sudo apt install linux-oem-22.04c" and then reboot.03:10
arraybolt3(The "c" at the end is not a typo.)03:10
sarnoldwhy c?03:10
arraybolt3It's the latest one.03:10
arraybolt3Installs kernel 6.1 according to packages.ubuntu.com03:10
arraybolt3Newer kernels generally have better hardware support IIUC.03:11
zterm86Thank you, I'll add that to my list and will test that as soon as possible. My network is 1.5Mbps down so it'll be a while ;). But thank you soo much. I look forward to giving this a go.03:13

mybalzitchso who do I report a bug to if I install spotify via snap, try to open a spotify url via firefox, which passes it off to spotify, which either then just gives me the default splash screen if the app was previously closed, or tries to open a new copy of itself (and errors) if I click the link again03:45
mybalzitchits a http url I'm clicking on in konsole, thats getting passed to firefox03:46

hermanoravage, Will check for BIOS update, the USB support is set to "full initial" which should make all USB to work in OS an post.17:13

hermanoravage, bios is from 16th of Jan 2023.17:15
Kolevleftyfb: hm. msmtp doesnt say to do that. most guides just assume the file is there.17:16

leftyfbmyk_: what do you mean you don't have terminal access?18:44
myk_no terminal access18:44
leftyfb!yy.mm | ash_mobile18:44
ubottuash_mobile: Ubuntu version numbers are: YY.MM (YY=release year,MM=release month). Each year sees two releases, so just specifying YY is imprecise. See also https://www.ubuntu.com/about/release-cycle18:44
leftyfbmyk_: why don't you have terminal access? What sort of machine is this?18:44
ash_mobileleftyfb 22.0418:45
leftyfbash_mobile: did/does this machine have Windows on it?18:45
myk_regular ubuntu but installing headless video-dummy does something that when you plug a monitor in youi cant see the display. I am trying to disable it though grub18:45
leftyfbmyk_: boot it with a live cd/usb, mount the root filesystem and make your changes that way18:46
ash_mobileleftyfb: yeah, On a hard drive that's no longer in the machine18:46
leftyfbash_mobile: go into the BIOS and disable the RAID18:46
myk_someone was saying something about getting in single user mode18:46
ash_mobileleftyfb: roger18:46
leftyfbmyk_: ok, then do that if you can18:47
myk_i dont know how18:47
leftyfb!recovery | myk_18:47
ubottumyk_: If your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode18:47
myk_also grub goes so fast I cant see or select advanced18:47
myk_its not that I installed a script that blanks out the screen18:48
rfmmyk_, how about just pressing ctrl-alt-F1 (or F2, F3...), getting a text console. log on there18:48
myk_let me try18:49
=== DalekSec is now known as Guest5958
myk_no doesnt work18:49
ash_mobileI don't see raid in bios18:50
ash_mobileHowever there is SATA operating: normal/legacy18:50
leftyfbash_mobile: what about Intel Rapid Store?18:50
=== Guest5958 is now known as DalekSec
=== DalekSec is now known as DalekSek
ash_mobileI didn't see anything about that either, but it's a really old device18:52
leftyfbash_mobile: are you sure your new drive is connected and functioning properly?18:52
ash_mobileThe Windows that came off it was XP18:52
ash_mobilethe bios detects it, and it was listed in lsblk18:52
myk_anyway to edit /etc/X11/xorg.cfg18:54
myk_through grub?18:54
ash_mobileAt least what was listed for sda was big enough to be it18:54
myk_I can pull up a in GRUB by ls /etc18:55
myk_but I can figure out how to edit18:55
leftyfbash_mobile: are you sure that wasn't the usb or another drive?18:56
leftyfbmyk_: no, you can't edit /etc/ from a GRUB prompt18:56
leftyfbmyk_: boot with a live usb18:56
ash_mobileI don't think so, but I'll check again18:56
myk_ok thank you I will try it18:57
ash_mobileleftyfb: actually, I don't see anything as /mnt/usb but it's definitely not 3.6T18:59
myk_is there a way to just get the grub conf file up in grub and comment out a line?18:59
leftyfbash_mobile: ah, a machine that old is probably going to have issues seeing drives over 2TB18:59
ash_mobileSo... Abandon this machine?19:00
leftyfbash_mobile: try a smaller drive, under 2TB19:00
ash_mobileWell, I could do that, but I kind of wanted to use this hdd19:01
ash_mobileSo, my guess is I should either replace parts or get a different machine19:02
leftyfbI'm trying to verify if this is an OS/partition/kernel level limitation or if it's also a motherboard limitation19:02
leftyfbash_mobile: it might be quicker for you to verify with a smaller drive19:03
leftyfbI know you need a GPT partition scheme, but the installer should do that automatically19:03
ash_mobilePerhaps, but I'll have to go through some effort because I don't have a blank one sitting around. The old one has Windows on so I think I need to partition it to use it19:05
leftyfbash_mobile: do you really need to keep an install of XP around?19:06
ash_mobileIt's more about the data19:06
ash_mobileI could go through it, but it'll take some time19:07
leftyfbash_mobile: the data isn't important if it's not backed up. Regardless, how important is the data from an OS that was released 22 years ago and went EOL 9 years ago?19:07
ash_mobileIt's just personal stuff; docs, pics, videos etc19:09
ash_mobileleftyfb: I'd ping you more if I were on a different client19:11
ash_mobileleftyfb I'll try again later, thanks19:12
myk_anyway Ok I have created a boot image on usb but grub goes to fast for me to select advanced. is there a way to fix this or a diffrent way to book19:39
yes-ubuntuHello! I have a laptop that went to sleep and after I open the lid, there is completely black screen (like, not even electricity in it), however, I can ssh into it from my other laptop19:46
yes-ubuntuif I reboot the blank screen laptop, the system is ok (although, using nomodeset); is there any way to turn the display back on via ssh? something like modprobe? or start the video card?19:47
yes-ubuntuor, have the display shown vis ssh to the remote laptop?19:48
loller_hey, anyone have a clue why Linux Mint 21.1 (Ubuntu 22.04) would take both the sound card output and the microphone input whenever I record something?19:54
loller_so for example if I am on Zoom, everyone hears both what it's in my microphone and whatever I am listening to19:54
loller_this was for a while after I changed the ALSA profile, but now the problem is back again19:54
tomreynyes-ubuntu: try a bios update19:58
myk_I am booted into ubuntu 20.04 usb now I am trying to repair hd via terminal. how to I access the partition?19:58
yes-ubuntutomreyn, done that... no help; but I am still in ssh now and can issue commands if there is any good idea?19:59
tomreynmyk_: what do you mean by "repair the hd"?19:59
myk_I need to mod a file in /etc20:00
tomreynyes-ubuntu: i don't have a good suggestion at hand.20:01
tomreynmyk_: you can use the graphical file manager to mount file systems and then edit the file.20:02
loller_I have now tried changing the sound card profile to output:analog-stereo20:03
loller_using pactl20:04
loller_but then I lose the mic input20:04
loller_it's gone as a device20:04
loller_so I can somehow not enable both output and input without mixing them?20:04
loller_it's very strange20:04
tomreynloller_: i think linux mint support is on irc.spotchat.org20:04
loller_ok but this is identical I think20:05
tomreynit is not20:05
loller_it's Ubuntu 20.04 underneath20:05
tomreynplease double-check your facts.20:06
yes-ubuntuI have firefox running and had youtube play a 1 hour song off the internet... any way for me to restart that youtube video via ssh?! :D20:07
loller_well my previous profile was output:analog-stereo+input:analog-stereo20:07
loller_that gives me 1 source and 1 sink20:07
loller_but I can't separate them for some reason20:07
loller_when I run "pactl list sources", I get this here is under the relevant device:20:11
loller_Active Port: analog-input-mic20:11
webchat55Seeing a weird apt update bug:20:12
webchat55Problem executing scripts APT::Update::Post-Invoke 'rm -f /var/cache/apt/archives/*.deb /var/cache/apt/archives/partial/*.deb /var/cache/apt/*.bin || true'20:12
webchat55Sub-process returned an error code20:12
loller_shouldn't it get sound only from that port then?20:12
webchat55Any hints on how to debug this?20:12
hermano_Really frustrating. While installing ubuntu 22.04 on a new computer, I loose the keyboard/mouse. Actually they work in bios and as part of ubuntu installation, but when ubuntu installation is finalize and I remove the usb stick, it performs a reboot. I still get "hid-generic: No inputs registered, leaving" and it does not timeout nor continues.20:13
yes-ubuntuis there any other irc chat where I can get good ideas on how to tackle the blank screen issue?20:14
tomreynhermano_: which computer model is this?20:16
tomreynhermano_: are you using a usb hub there?20:17
hermano_tomreyn, The motherboard is an: Gigabyte B760 Gaming X AX DDR420:17
tomreynhermano_: is the bios up to date?20:18
hermano_tomreyn, no usb hub, I had the machine built from supplier so I am not sure the front usb is actually connected, so I am using the rear usb connection.20:18
hermano_tomreyn, Bios is from 16th of Jan 2023.20:18
hermano_tomreyn, I also connected the screen with hdmi to the motherboard graphic card, to secure that it is not the extra graphic card causing any problem.20:19
tomreynhermano_: so, for me to understand it correctly: installing ubuntu 22.04 worked fine. after installing it, boot stalls indefinitely emitting this message: "hid-generic: No inputs registered, leaving". is this correct?20:20
hermano_tomreyn, yes.20:21
tomreynhermano_: can you try booting in recovery then and see if you can use the keyboard there?20:22
ubottuIf your system fails to boot normally, it may be useful to boot it into recovery mode. For instructions, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode20:22
hermano_tomreyn, Just a wild guess but the motherboard has bluetooth. Could it be that the errors are connected to bluetooth devices (headset and another mouse)?20:22
tomreynhermano_: is your keyboard connected using bluetooth, though?20:23
tomreynfrom what i read online, "hid-generic: No inputs registered, leaving" is just partial output. can you get the full line?20:24
hermano_No, both keyboard and mouse are usb cable.20:24
tomreyn"hid-generic [what does it say here?]: No inputs registered, leaving"20:25
hermano_hid-generic 0003:0B05:180F.0002: No inuts registered, leaving. mtd device must be supplied (device name is empty).20:27
tomreynthat's an ASUSTeK XONAR SOUND CARD apparently20:28
tomreyncan you disconnect that?20:28
hermano_Yes, I have a sound card inserted with that name (external). Thing is that the supplier installed windows OS as default, and I reinstalled the machine with ubuntu 22.04.Is one way to solve the problem temporarily to disable tat sound card in bios?20:29
hermano_I have this as extra card (ASUS Xonar AE 7.1), but might be the built-in sound card is also a ASUS, have to check.20:30
tomreynpossibly. i see reports of this sourd card blocking keyboard input20:30
tomreynis it onboard?20:30
lukdkhello, I'm having trouuble with grub after installing ubuntu on a VM.. I can only boot when i first go to the recovery mode, to select the option resume boot... I seem to find many articles with boot issues, but don't know which I should try to fix this... If i got an error message somewhere i would have something to look for, in my case the system seems to attempt to boot and just stops at the be20:31
hermano_The ASUS Xonar AE 7.1 is an extra inserted card (not incorporated in the motherboard).20:31
tomreynhermano_: then i suggest removing it temporarily and seeing whether that will enable you to boot with keyboard and mouse support20:32
tomreynoh, that's a pcie card, not usb, right?20:33
tomreynlukdk: to me, this sounds like a graphics related issue, possibly with the virtualization you're using. which virtualization are you using, is it fully up to date, and does it support your ubuntu version?20:35
hermano_tomreyn, yes the external sound card is inserted in a pci_ex slot. Not usb.20:35
tomreynhermano_: hmm, well, i'd try nevertheless, since it does seem to be related. i assume it may provide an usb hub and that may cause the issue.20:36
hermano_tomreyn, plan to use virtualization but have not checked nor activated that in BIOS intentionally yet.20:36
tomreynhermano_: okay, but i wasn't talking to *you* about virtualization ;)20:37
benshermanI am getting an intermittent error when I run apt-get update on a fresh AMI from us-east-1 (aws ec2) - I am not sure where I can look for help (or file an issue). It started with the version that was posted yesterday.20:39
benshermanThe error is about missing files - E: Could not open file /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_focal_multiverse_cnf_Commands-amd64 - open (2: No such file or directory)20:39
hermano_tomreyn, sorry20:39
benshermanthat file does indeed not exist - there are files specific to the AWS region we are using though.20:40
tomreynbensherman: try #ubuntu-cloud20:41
tomreynhermano_: no worries, so i'd try removing the sound card and see whether this improves anything, and then continue from there.20:44
myk_booted up to ubuntu recovery   can not save any file. how do i get write access?21:24
hermano_myk_, recovery mode is read-only.21:25
sarnolddepending upon what's going on, it might be best to use a usb memory stick or usb mass storage device, or a network share, but you might also be able to use mount -oremount,rw /path/to/filesystem21:25
myk_thank you21:25
myk_i am booted up to the usb21:25
tomreynfor what it's worth, the option to enable networking in the recovery menu should also give you write access to the root file system.21:28
hermano__tomreyn, I rather not take out the card, but ok let's say I take it out. After bios/ubuntu start without the card, would I be able to put it back or do you think it would conflict aftewards also?21:37
oerhekskernel update 5.15.0-6021:40
hermanotomreyn, After a extremely long waiting it just went through to ubuntu OS.21:41
yes-ubuntuso, I am trying to somehow restart the video on the laptop with black screen via ssh; so far, I have done sudo service gdm stop and then sudo modprobe -r i915 then modprobe i915 and service gdm start --- but all without any change, the screen is still pitch black :)  Any more ideas?21:42
yes-ubuntuUbuntu 22.10 is still alive there though as I have two ssh terminals open and one is running top21:42
leftyfbyes-ubuntu: reboot21:43
yes-ubuntuleftyfb: nooo... anything else? :)21:43
swenssonHello, if I recall correctly, wasn't "grep -r "mytext" /var/www/   going to give me the line # on what where string was?21:56
leftyfbswensson: -n21:56
leftyfbswensson: from the man page:        -n, --line-number21:57
leftyfb              Prefix each line of output with the 1-based line number within its input file.21:57
swenssonleftyfb: Yep, correct. Thank you21:57
yes-ubuntuDoes ssh -X work on Ubuntu 22.10 ?22:01
sarnoldyes-ubuntu: I haven't heard that it's broken yet, but I don't have one to test with myself22:03
leftyfbI'm pretty sure it doesn't work with wayland22:03
sarnoldyes-ubuntu: it might only work with an xorg session though, I don't think wayland allows clients on separate hosts from servers22:03
leftyfbwhich I'm pretty sure if the default in 22.1022:03
yes-ubuntuSo, is there any way other than remote desktop to see graphical user interface from a remote laptop if I only have ssh access at the moment?22:05
leftyfbyes-ubuntu: you can switch to xorg from wayland and use ssh -X22:05
leftyfbor use VNC or services like teamviewer22:05
sarnoldssh -X won't let you see a desktop22:06
sarnoldit lets you run a client22:06
leftyfbwell yeah, that too :)22:06
sarnoldI think "seeing a desktop" requires something more like vnc, as leftyfb said, or rdp, if linux supports that22:06
sarnoldor, uh, rather than "if linux supports that", "if an rdp client and server are available"22:06
yes-ubuntusarnold: What does it mean "it lets you run a client" ?22:06
sarnoldyes-ubuntu: you could run eg an xterm or evince or something on a remote computer but view the output locally22:07
yes-ubuntuif rdp is remote desktop then yes, Ubuntu 22.10 does support rdp :)  I tried it! it worked super cool! But now, I am trying to see if I can wake up the video by any chance...22:08
yes-ubuntusarnold: I heard about xterm but haven't used it just yet22:09
hermano__yes-ubuntu, Install and run remmina. It runs both ssh and rdp.22:09

heinleinThe tomcat9 package in Jammy installs a tomcat user with a home directory of /var/lib/tomcat, but the package creates /var/lib/tomcat9. Some apps that require a keystore need it located in the user's home directory, so that omission can be significant.22:43
heinleinIs this a known thing? Have I missed something important?22:44
sarnoldheinlein: possibly related https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tomcat9/+bug/183413922:45
tomreynhermano__: install the pending updates, reboot, see whether it helps22:45
-ubottu:#ubuntu- Launchpad bug 1834139 in tomcat9 (Ubuntu) "The tomcat9 user tomcat has wrong home directory /" [Undecided, New]22:45
heinleinI know that the tomcat user home directory was "/" in 18.04.22:46
yes-ubuntuhermano__: thank you, I have it installed22:47
heinleinfor now, i've created a symlink, tomcat -> tomcat9, but that feels messy.22:48
yes-ubuntuI have rebooted the laptop with blank screen; then I tried to stop and restart gdm remotely via ssh to see how it works, and it works nicely! :)22:48
yes-ubuntujust that after, I tried modprobe -r i915 and this was successful... and still, the graphical user interface is running fine like before, without the i915 module? how is that possible? Or, is this because the system now runs with nomodeset?22:49
sarnoldit's possible the module had been removed, but the memory hadn't been overwritten with over stuff yet22:51
sarnoldremoving kernel modules is not a very safe operation22:51
tomreynheinlein: personally, i'd say the main issue there is that "Some apps that require a keystore need it located in the user's home directory". but i gues sthe home directory of the tomcat user should exist if that's a user which is created automatically / by default. if you can confirm this then i'd suggest to file another bug report.22:52
yes-ubuntusarnold: I do understand! However, what's the worst that can happen? Freeze? Restart, reboot :)  other than that... and this now is a test machine as I am trying to see if I can do anything about this blank screen after waking up from sleep.22:55
lukdkhello, I'm having trouuble with grub after installing ubuntu on a VM.. I can only boot when i first go to the recovery mode, to select the option resume boot... I seem to find many articles with boot issues, but don't know which I should try to fix this... If i got an error message somewhere i would have something to look for, in my case the system seems to attempt to boot and just stops at the be23:00
myk_ok I am trying to install a package in recovery teamviewer or update it buty i keep getting dpkg error23:02
myk_i am thinking its because it will not write to the drive. so how i specify to install to the mounted rw systerm23:03
tomreynlukdk: last time you were here and asked almost the same, i answered this: to me, this sounds like a graphics related issue, possibly with the virtualization you're using. which virtualization are you using, is it fully up to date, and does it support your ubuntu version?23:04
tomreynlukdk: note that your message cuts off after "in my case the system seems to attempt to boot and just stops at the be"23:05
tomreynmyk_: use apt to install packages, not dpkg directly, unless you know it has no dependencies. i would not recommend making changes in recovery unless that's really the only way you can. this should mount the file system writable: mount -o remount,rw /23:07
myk_in recovery i am trying to install apt install ./teamviewer but i keep getting dkpg run repair23:10
myk_i do it but no reolve23:10
tomreyni'm not sure what a "dkpg run repair" is23:14
yes-ubuntuHey... I have modprobe -r i915 (the graphics module) and I stopped and started gdm and it works! Is that possible? no crash, all good. If so, why is i915 even loaded (if not in use?)23:18
tomreyndo you know that it is?23:21
myk_so teamviewer was my only way in to this computer. A teamviewer update knocked the only way I could get in out. I am trying to figure out how to uninstall teamviewer and reinstall. but everytime I try to install with Apt I get an error with dkpg23:25
myk_i used mount -o remount,rw /partition23:26
Jeremy31yes-ubuntu: If you really needed i915, you wouldn't be able to successfully run that command23:27
hermano I have a somewhat strange situation, if i boot my machine with the usb installation stick of ubuntu 22.04 then it finds the external sound card and i also hear the sound. This is with the integrated graphic card. As soon as I unplugg the usb memstick and/or swap to the external graphical card, the computer will not start.23:39
hermanoI guess I will have to give up, and do as someone recommended. To physically unplugg the problematic sound card and see if ubuntu 22.04 manage to load as OS.23:40
myk_well I just remembered I setup a backup with zoho lol23:41
myk_so I'm in23:41
