goddardI contacted those people and reported a bug and we tried to work out the issues, but weren't able to come to a resolution.00:31
goddardmy device is supposedly supported00:31
oerheksis it in the list?00:31
goddardi tried on two different laptops that are the same and have the same fingerprint reader00:32
goddardboth seem like it almost works but after maybe 2 or 3 swipes of your finger during the setup process it just fails00:33
oerheksGo to Settings and the click on Users from left sidebar. You should see all the user account on your system here. You'll see several option including Fingerprint Login.00:33
oerheksif not, no clue00:33
oerheks... info you should have told us in the 1st place00:33
goddardSo no options exist to get it working?00:34
goddardThink an open collective bounty would work?00:34

Ross19I know this is an odd and highly specific question, but is there software to proxy a connection from a local ip to a remote ip/domain? I.e. I got to[port], and the service establishes a connection to, say google.com, and then provides that connection to the software that made a request at[port]?01:39

podeniHi everyone. I'm trying to find a solution to set up the following: a local SOCKS proxy to be used on the local machine that attempts to connect through different external IPs, based on which SOCKS proxy port the connection was attempted. So if the machine has and bound to it, using as the proxy should make websites see me as, but using as08:02
podenithe proxy should make them see me as
podeniTried so far: ssh with -D, and Dante. Both have their issues. SSH won't let me bind to a specific outgoing IP (it always gives me no matter what I specify under -b), and Dante's "external.rotation = same-same" setting requires me to proxy through the IP I want to be seen as externally, which adds another layer of complication.08:03
podeniAll I want is a solution to a simple problem: direct traffic based on a one-to-one mapping between input ports to public IPs. Listen on 1001, use, listen on 1002, use
nb-benpodeni: look for netmap routing08:07
nb-benpodeni: netmap nat rules08:07
nb-benpodeni: ah, this might not provide what you're looking for actually.08:08
podeniI'm always connecting from to, only the port is meant to be distinct.08:11
nb-benpodeni: are you trying to configure this on a router that's connected to your ubuntu machine or is that ubuntu machine the router?08:12
nb-benpodeni: if the ubuntu machine is the router, if there's nothing that already exists that supports your needs, then you can write a kernel module to do that with netfilter api: https://levelup.gitconnected.com/write-a-linux-firewall-from-scratch-based-on-netfilter-46201320268608:13
nb-benpodeni: I think it might be a good idea to ask about this in #networking08:14
podeniThanks, I'll ask there as well. It's the local machine.08:15

gebbionehi, what is still keepting kernel modules files v 4x around in my system? https://termbin.com/2oik what can i do to troubleshoot and find out if they are not needed anymore. Autopurge does not pick them up09:09
=== haggertk_ is now known as haggertk
gonixif you keep the old kernel aside, the modukes stays here too.09:11
gonixif you'd boot it.09:11
ogragebbione, by default ubuntu always keeps the original installation kernel around (because that one is known to work for sure since you installed with it, so it is a safe option to go back to in case of incidents)09:13
al1enrunning apt list --upgradable I get this: https://pastebin.com/HZFA35dS09:14
gebbioneogra, they are very old though probably from 14 or 16 versions09:14
al1enwhat should I do to upgrade those packages? why there are two cuda-drivers? (I think there should be the one with -510 suffix only)09:14
jjakobgebbione: look in #linux I sent you some commands to try09:15
ogragebbione, well, was this machine originally installed with 14.x or 16.x  ?09:15
jjakobI think his question is why dpkg lists all those as state 'rc' (remove, conf-files), they aren't actually installed09:16
ograah ...09:17
jjakobnone of the 4.x packages is 'ii'09:17
gebbionebut yes i upgrade09:17
gebbionedont install from scratch usually09:17
jjakobmy suspicion was because of the nvidia driver but I don't know how you would purge them09:17
jjakobmaybe just 'apt-get purge'09:18
gebbionejjakob, btw i had a radeon up to a year ago approximately09:18
ogramy suspicion would be something like modules.dep which is a generated file and might keep the modules dir alive even if the modules are gone09:18
gebbioneso i doubt it is all fault of nvidia :)09:18
jjakobapt-get purge linux-headers-4* linux-headers-3*09:18
ograyeah, that should remove them09:18
jjakoband the same for linux-image-4* 3* 2*09:19
podeniQuestion: I'm running Ubuntu 22 on a rented VPS, and for some reason it's not setting the terminal title on connect (I still see the title local_user@localhost, which is confusing on a multi-tab terminal). How could I get Ubuntu to set the title on connect?09:20
jjakobpodeni: is /etc/hostname set?09:21
podeniYes, it is.09:21
jjakoband 'hostname -f' shows the correct one?09:21
jjakobdid you log out and in, or reboot?09:21
podeniYes, the output of /etc/hostname is the same as hostname -f. I also rebooted the machine.09:21
jjakobhow are you connecting?09:22
podeniSame as I do on my EC2 instances, where it works as expected.09:22
jjakobjust localhost is incorrect or is local_user wrong too?09:22
gebbioneapt-get purge linux-image-3* is giving me more that i expected.... .https://termbin.com/uuvfr09:23
jjakobis the hostname correct in /etc/hosts?09:23
gebbioneshould the argument have a better regex?09:23
gebbioneit looks like it wants do sudo rm -rf /  :)09:23
jjakobgebbione: yeah, that's too much09:24
jjakobtry 'linux-image-3.*'09:24
podenijjakob I see the hostname is incorrect in /etc/hosts. It's the default one provided by the VPS reseller instead of my custom one.09:24
jjakobpodeni: you can try to change that. is it localhost now?09:24
podeniI also note that .bashrc was missing when I got the machine, I had to copy one from /etc/skel/.bashrc09:25
jjakobbut I don't think that would cause the terminal to display it wrong09:25
podeniAnd the default terminal was set to sh, not bash09:25
podeniI had to chsh to use bash.09:25
gebbionenah still getting too much jjakob09:25
jjakobgebbione: what's the exact command?09:26
gebbionesudo apt-get purge 'linux-image-3*'09:27
jjakobweird, I don't know why that's selecting too muxh09:27
jjakob"Fallback to regular expressions is deprecated in APT 2.0, has been removed in apt(8), except for anchored  expressions, and will be removed from apt-get(8) in a future version. Use apt-patterns(5) instead."09:30
jjakobhmm, so '^linux-image-3.*' ?09:30
gebbioneright like regex09:30
gebbionei ll check09:30
jjakobdoes ^ make it an anchored expression?09:30
gebbioneit means start of line09:31
gebbione. means a caracter09:31
gebbione* makes it many of the previous one09:31
jjakobseems like they will use apt-patterns09:32
jjakobman apt-patterns09:32
jjakobyou could probably make one that works if that anchored regex doesn't but I don't have time to research it now09:33
gebbionenp i ll try, thank you09:33
jjakobI've never used apt-patterns before09:33
gebbionei get lots of errors like ... dpkg: warning: while removing linux-image-4.4.0-71-generic, directory '/lib/modules/4.4.0-71-generic' not empty so not removed09:37
gebbionebut if i try to remove them it says 0 space will be saved so i guess it is just annoyingly there but not really present09:38
jjakobgebbione: sometimes it says that in one step but a later step will remove it09:40
jjakobif not, you can manually rm it later by hand09:40
jjakobif there's nothing that you need there (/lib/modules/ shouldn't have anything if that kernel version is already removed)09:41
gebbioneit actually removed them indeed09:41
gebbionerunning the command again shows no need for removal09:41
ograyeah, purge should09:42

bizmate_so after all that purging of packages i just don't have wifi anymore after a reboot10:11
bizmate_any suggestion?10:15
* alkisg didn't see what happened, but the obvious solution would be to reinstall them?10:26
Alexey_Ну... За присутствующих!!!! 🍻10:30
zaggynlbizmate_: if able use an ethernet cable or mount usb installation media and install the ubuntu-desktop package10:31
zaggynlI guess that should do it if the wrong packages were removed, what packages were you purging?10:32
bizmate_zaggynl, i was here from my other pc as gebbione, i purged a lot of old linux-image etc older kernels stuff10:34
bizmate_can i get a deb of the ubuntu-desktop and put in a usb instead of spinning a live usb ?10:34
bizmate_i just don't see the whole wifi interface and no option in the ubuntu UX10:36
priyanshu11x0i have a 1:9 monitor but ubuntu is using 4:3 by default and i am unable to change it from the settings10:37
priyanshu11x0not 1:910:37
bizmate_zaggynl, this one? https://pkgs.org/download/ubuntu-desktop10:38
ograbizmate_, you might also wnat to install ubuntu-minimal and ubuntu-standard in case something from the lower level was removed they will put it back10:47
bizmate_ogra, would they come with all necessary dependencies?10:49
bizmate_at least to get the wifi working?10:49
ograyes, just lik ubuntu-desktop they are empty meta packages that only contain dependencies10:49
bizmate_for instance i see these packages are missing from my system linux-modules-iwlwifi... not sure if needed10:50
zaggynlals for purging old packages, how di dyou remove these bizmate_ ? apt purge? should use apt autoremove10:51
bizmate_zaggynl, i did things many humans would not have done :)10:52
zaggynleh, breaking things is human, I do it all the time, I usually have backups, snapshots or notes10:53
bizmate_so should i get ubuntu-minimal and ubuntu-standard and ubuntu-desktop? i mean the deb files10:54
bizmate_so i can put them in usb and install them manually?10:54
alkisgpriyanshu11x0: what's the output of this command? xrandr | nc termbin.com 999910:54
bizmate_or should i look for kernel wifi modules10:56
bizmate_ubuntu standard and desktop are installed11:02
bizmate_there must be another package i need11:02
bizmate_to fix the wifi11:02
bizmate_and bring it back11:02
bizmate_i also connected a network cable and it is not connecting11:19
ograwell, did you check the network settings in the GUI ?11:19
bizmate_yes i see only VPN and proxy settings11:27
bizmate_no ethernet or wifi options shown11:27
bizmate_even after connecting the cable11:27
bizmate_ip addr shows not eth resource11:30
ograthat seems way more low level then ...11:30
ogra(like some kernel mdules missing or so)11:30
bizmate_yes that why i was wondering if i need these11:30
bizmate_or similar11:32
bizmate_i see my linux-modules-extra is missing for my kernel11:33
bizmate_i ll try to get that manually11:33

WeeBeyThanks for the suggestion! It's really good for video recordings.11:49
PeGaSuSWeeBey: Kazam does do it11:49
PeGaSuSI mean, it records video (not sure if with sound or not) and with several encoding types. I, personally, use VP8 (WEBM)11:50

elias_a_dunz0r: Totally new for me as well. Is there nothing related in /var/log/syslog ?12:18

PuretzelI've got a problem with Mail on a Server. I configured postfix to send Email only (loopback-only). Mail command on bash sends mails without a problem. If i try to send a mail from a php script on the same machine (using a simple smtp class) over the smtp server on localhost I get this line in /var/log/mail.info: "postfix/smtpd[538494]: lost connection after AUTH from localhost[::1]". The12:25
Puretzelcompany runs another host with the exact same configuration but the hostname is different. It can send Mails using the same php script. I have tried everything but cannot find a solution.12:25
WeeBeygebbione, Not sure why you'd get that. I'm a cowboy and would download another kernel and install manually and see. But it's not recommended to do cowboy kernels. haha12:25
dunz0rPuretzel: Sure that it's listening on ipv6?12:25
gebbionebut how do i get the right kernel, which reinstall can i run right now to try and fix it?12:26
dunz0rPuretzel: [::1] is the ipv6 equivalent of
gebbionei have 5.15.0-60-generic12:26
Puretzel@dunz0r: it is, I already tried ipv4/6 only but changed back to both12:26
WeeBeygebbione, A kernel from the ubuntu repos would likely work. I have 5.19.5-051905-generic from the the Ubuntu repos (again, Im cowboy with kernels)12:26
dunz0rPuretzel: Make sure postfix is running. Try connecting to it with netcat localhost 2512:27
Puretzel@dunz0r: nc -vz localhost 25  -->  localhost [] 25 (smtp) open12:28
gebbioneWeeBey,  are you on 22.04? i don't see that kernel12:28
WeeBeyOk, I gotta jet. dunz0r good luck. It could be a power thing also if it's a dock. Not sure.12:28
WeeBeygebbione, 22.04 yea.12:28

gebbionehow do i get that12:31

PeGaSuSguys, help! I messed up real bad.. I've ran this script https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks to configure wine to run AdiIRC on Linux. but now, I'm getting "Read-only file system" whenever I execute any command.. please advise..15:08
PeGaSuSI need to be AFK for a few minutes (picking up my kids at school), but I'll brb.. meanwhile, give me ideas please!15:09
PeGaSuSso, I'm back.. any ideas how to get my system back?15:27
leftyfbPeGaSuS: tried rebooting?15:27
PeGaSuSI'm afraid of rebooting, but well..15:27
leftyfbPeGaSuS: if your filesystem is currently read-only, that's the best way to clear up the symptom15:28
PeGaSuSI looked at the script and didn't see anything suspicious, even if my knowledge about suspicious commands are limited15:29
PeGaSuScurrently rebooting the system (using the phone right now)15:29
PeGaSuSI'll be damned.. rebooting solved it.. I was scared.. thanks leftyfb15:34
leftyfbPeGaSuS: don't run that script15:34
PeGaSuSthe problem is that I already ran it.. that's why I got that system read-only issue. I suppose I should not run it again15:35

tuxickmount -o remount,rw instead of rebooting16:32
tuxickworth a shot16:32
leftyfbtuxick: it's already been resolved. That said, a filesystem which switches to read-only is in a bad state. Lots of processes are going to be stuck or die because of it. Sure, you could go through everything and restart services as needed, but it's a lot quicker to just reboot16:33
jhutchinsRebooting will also run an fsck on the drive, which may resolve minor issues.16:40

glassguitarhi, could i get some help setting a new kernel i just compiled as the one to use? I applied a patch to the same version of kernel currently installed. i tried "sudo update-initramfs -c -k 6.1.11", but when booting, it still shows the old "6.1.11-060111-generic" when using uname17:39
glassguitari have ubuntu 22.0417:39
leftyfbglassguitar: why are you patching your kernel?17:43
glassguitarleftyfb: I have the exact problem as the person in this post, and I can't find any other solution to get sound, so I'm trying the patch they say works: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/722205/hp-envy-x360-2022-ryzen-edition-speakers-not-working17:47
glassguitaralthough i just realized the model number is slightly different, i dont know if i have to change that in the patch17:48
glassguitarbut ive already compiled the kernel so i might as well try17:49
oerheksThe problem is the ALC245 sound hardware isn't supported in the current kernel ..17:51
glassguitarcurrent as in LTS? because i updated to 6.1.11 and it still doesnt work. or is it still not there17:52
tuxickleftyfb: unless urgent i'm on favour of first figuring out what's going on18:03
tuxicki frequently get "something went wrong so we gave a reset, can you find out what was wrong?"18:04
tuxickmy preferred answer is "no"18:04
glassguitartuxick: are you talking about my issue? if so, its not urgent, and id love to know too18:05
tuxickglassguitar: sorry no, was about the read-only fs18:06

gebbioneWeeBey, thank you a lot again for sharing mainline with me ... fantastic. I actually installed the latest stable 6 version kernel and it works like a charm now. I had to reinstall the drivers which i think was the main fix but mainline makes managing kernels very cool18:30

ogragebbione, note that the mainline PPA kernels are not for production use though ... they miss a lot of ubuntu security patches (IIRC abou 400) and come with the wrong config (there will be userspace bits expecting certain things that are not there) and they do never get upgraded18:36

gebbioneokra ... well i use them for my desktop and installing or removing them is a breeze ... i hope i didn't make my system insecure but ideally kernels should be managed like this18:38
gebbionesed /okra/ogra/18:38
ogragebbione, well, in the end it is up to you, but dont be surprised if apps start to mis-behave and you should do manual weekly kernel updates (or at least monthly) more info at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds ...18:40
gebbioneogra, i have has so many misbehaved apps ... especially conflicts with drivers by just upgrading kernels pulled by ubuntu by default even if oem so at this point who knows ... maybe i will experience some problems but earlier today i just could not even get X working so for now i ll just rely on what i have18:43
ogragebbione, yeah, not saying it is wrong but you should be aware of the limitations18:44
gebbionethe thing is i don't know for my os what kernel i am supposed to have right now that is LTS18:45
ogra(especially when asking for support here, please mention that you are not running the supported kernel when asking something)18:45
gebbionemainline gives you at least the option to install them on the fly without having to know how the whole kernel packages work18:45
gebbionejust list and select a version18:46
ograif you are on the latest LTS (22.04) you should be on 5.15.0-60-generic18:46
gebbioneyep and for whatever reason i had also some 6 oem, 5  iotg and a low latency one ... i don't really play with kernels ... just update when i see an update prompt18:46
gebbionethe generic on is also there but i think my problem ... or at least the main one... was that i had to reinstall the nvidia drivers so they would work with the kernel again18:47
gebbionegeneric one18:47
ograwell, the supported nvidia drivers are only tested against the generic, oem and hwe kernels ... not against mainline18:48
