gorgonHi, how do I record, view, and playback waveforms from my microphone?01:38
gorgonOh that was not an answer to me01:38
matsamangorgon: ups01:38
matsamanj/k =)01:38
gorgonha ha01:39
matsamangorgon: do you want a GUI app or commandline?01:39
gorgoncommandline is preferable01:39
gorgonI use KDE01:39
gorgonanything lightweight will do actually01:39
matsamanyou might have 'arecord' already01:39
matsamanplayback ... I would use01:39
gorgonahh thanks01:40
matsamanmplayer or mpv, but 'aplay' is probably also something you have01:40
gorgonwow how cool is that thanks!01:40
matsamanview is a special one, I don't think I would bother searching for something that would visualize a waveform in a terminal01:40
gorgonOh and do you know how I can view the waveforms?01:40
matsamanmost people use the GUI app 'Audacity' and call it a day01:40
sarnold'view' sounds a bit like you want audacity01:40
gorgonI mean I could open a Jupyter Notebook I guess01:40
matsamansarnold: indeed01:40
sarnoldheya matsaman :)01:40
matsamanI'm sure you could find a script to generate the waveform01:41
matsamanand even pass it to libcaca for an ascii representation01:41
matsamanif you like pain a lot01:41
gorgonOh and while we're on the topic of viewing01:41
gorgonsomething I wondered for a hilw01:41
matsamangenerate the waveform visual*01:41
gorgonand on the topic of console -01:41
gorgonIs there a console command that can show an image on the console?01:41
gorgonOf course, approximately01:41
matsamangorgon: as in without X running?01:41
matsamanor just in a terminal?01:41
gorgone.g. "aview abc.jpg"01:41
gorgonjust in terminal01:41
matsamanI would use 'display' from imagemagick01:42
gorgonwith as much color as possible01:42
matsamanbut there are hundreds of image viewers01:42
gorgonWow I used imagemagick I didn't know that it has display!01:42
matsamanif you want it _in_ the terminal, few terminals do that, but some do01:42
gorgonI'm gonna try it right now01:42
matsamanand you can always use something like libcaca to ascii-ize it01:42
sarnoldgorgon: w3m-img can do it01:42
sarnoldhmm, my first attempt it appeared to start an X program :/01:43
gorgonoh `magick display abc.jpg` opens an image using my X01:43
matsamangorgon: you don't want to use X?01:44
ravagegorgon: if you want to go totally crazy on the console: https://github.com/fathyb/carbonyl/releases :D01:44
matsamangorgon: displaying an image without X running is a different beast01:44
gorgonYeah I'm generally fine with X, but sometimes I want to just use the console to quickly confirm an image you know01:44
matsamangorgon: you would have to setup some framebuffer implementation, or use libcaca01:44
gorgonespecially when I'm using an ssh session01:44
matsamanprobably libcaca will be the easiest, although it's not going to be pretty frequently01:45
gorgonHuh carbonyl looks interesting!01:46
sarnoldthis guy suggests tiv or ranger https://www.baeldung.com/linux/view-images-from-terminal01:46
gorgonWill check it out later01:46
arraybolt3ravage: Sheesh, that Carbonyl thing is amazing.01:46
arraybolt3Might try it :P01:46
ravageit is!01:46
gorgonlibcaca sounds great01:47
gorgonwasn't there a different library like that earlier01:47
matsamanwell curses is a different thing01:48
matsamancurses/slang/et al, are for terminal-based UI01:48
sarnoldcurses is something else, think more menu-driven programs01:48
matsamanand libcaca is for ascii-izing imagery, basically01:48
sarnoldlibaa was the first thing like libcaca that I heard of01:48
gorgonWow libcaca is 10 years old01:48
sarnoldback in school I watched a bootleg rip of the matrix with libaa, because of course I did01:48
gorgonI mean the last release was 9 years ago: http://caca.zoy.org/wiki/libcaca01:49
gorgonbut that probably means there's nothing more to add01:49
gorgonas long as they compile it with all the recent security fixes it should be safe enough i suppose?01:49
gorgonAlso I'll install Audacity if that's the best GUI viewer for Linux01:51
gorgonThanks for all the suggestions!01:51
sarnoldgorgon: audacity is an *audio* tool btw ;)01:52
gorgonthanks it seems really good01:54
gorgonThe UI looks a bit out of place, more like Windows 3x01:57
gorgonProbably it's not a KDE application01:57
gorgonbut it seems to be well maintained despite the looks01:57
gorgonLast code merge was just 16 hours ago01:58
sarnoldit started in the same era, wikipedia says its first release was may 28, 200001:58
sarnold(I was guessing earlier than that, heh)01:58
matsamanthere is probably a KDE-oriented alternative, but you're going to find plenty of irreplaceable apps that aren't KDE oriented02:00
matsamanso probably best to get over that now (or spend ages setting up themes to make such apps look native)02:00
gorgonNah I'm good with audacity02:01
gorgonIf it's the gimp of audio, which it seems to be02:01
matsamanit is02:01
sarnoldthere's a kde non-linear video editor kdenlive that loads of people like; it *might* be able to do audio things, too, but it'd be an afterthought for them02:02

Gallomimiapardon me... how can i verify a USB stick is bootable, using ubuntu20:27
Gallomimiai guess i could always try to boot from it...20:27
akikGallomimia: you can try to boot it with qemu-kvm20:29
Gallomimiawell i installed that easily enough. but here we hit a wall. got manual?20:31
akikGallomimia: i think the minimal set of options was: sudo qemu-kvm -m 1024 /dev/sdX20:31
akikor if you fix the permissions on /dev/kvm, just: qemu-kvm -m 1024 /dev/sdX20:31
Gallomimiaoddly enough, of all the commands available starting with qemu now, kvm is not one of them20:32
akikGallomimia: yea i noticed that earlier. try to use qemu-system-x86_6420:33
arraybolt3Gallomimia: qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 4096 -smp 2 -hda /dev/sdx20:34
arraybolt3^ that should work fairly well with Ubuntu Desktop, there are other variants on that command if you need something specific or less resource-intensive.20:35
Gallomimiawow. yeah i'm giving up on that. just trying to get a USB that's bootable. used dd on another machine to flash an iso, but that machine won't boot it20:35
arraybolt3Gallomimia: Is it a BIOS machine? And by "won't boot", does it not even try, or does it try but freeze during bootup?20:35
Gallomimiathanks for the suggestion. i'll read more about qemu later. it sounds like it will do some other things that i'd like20:35
Gallomimiayes, yes20:35
arraybolt3Ah, that's a known bug, just leave it "frozen" and it will figure itself out in 10 minutes or so.20:35
akikGallomimia: if the iso image is not for uefi boot, change your uefi to boot in bios or csm mode20:36
arraybolt3Only affects booting the ISO, the installed system won't have the slow boot.20:36
arraybolt3I'll try and find the bug report.20:36
Gallomimiano it won't. the machine in question is like 12-15 years old, and we're trying to boot win720:36
Gallomimiait's running manjaro but it's pretty darn slow, and the fellow who wants to use it is not too interested in linux at all. so... now we're off topic20:36
arraybolt3Gallomimia: Ah.20:37
leftyfbGallomimia: manjaro is also offtopic here20:37
=== chris14_ is now known as chris14
arraybolt3leftyfb: They're trying to test a bootable USB on Ubuntu I assume, that would be on-topic regardless of the OS on the ISO or the final target system, since whether it boots or not is the problem, not what it is that is being booted.20:38
arraybolt3And Ubuntu's qemu-system-x86_64 can do that.20:38
Gallomimiayeah i'm trying to use my ubuntu machine to check and see if the USB stick is bootable20:38
leftyfboh, it looks like they had a manjaro machine trying to test a win7 installer usb20:39
akikGallomimia: there's a command isohybrid that converts non-isohybrid isos to isohybrid20:39
Gallomimiaas in.... efi/bios hybridness?20:40
Gallomimiawrong window20:40
arraybolt3isohybrid I think makes a "can only boot from a DVD drive" ISO file also bootable from a USB drive when you dd it.20:40
arraybolt3But also, Windows doesn't take too kindly to being straight dd'd to a drive - WoeUSB might be better.20:41
Gallomimiathat's probably a big deal20:41
Gallomimiawhat is a woeUSB20:41
arraybolt3It won't need isohybrid. I've used it several times.20:41
arraybolt3(Not officially supported, but if that's what you're doing anyway, may as well give an easy option.)20:41
arraybolt3s/twice/thrice/ (ok so it was several :P)20:41
Gallomimialots of options to look into. sounds like Future-gallo's problem20:42
arraybolt3or whatever, I'm mis-remembering things. You know what I mean. Use that tool, will make bootable Windows stick :D20:42
arraybolt3Anyway, /me stops going off-topic20:42
akikGallomimia: i have the commands to make a windows iso able to boot from a usb stick if you need those20:43
akikGallomimia: it's a matter of copying the files20:43
ravagethe woeusb script really does a good job and is easy to use20:43

ravageif not all20:45
arraybolt3I had to install wimtools to make it work.20:45
arraybolt3Everything else was there.20:46
ravagethat is not required for a simple iso to usb transfer20:46
ravage(to a ntfs usb)20:46
arraybolt3I was flashing Win10 ISOs to what I believe was a FAT32 USB (that was what it did by default), so it needed it for me. Win7 is smaller and might not need it.20:47
ravageyep. should not be needed with --tgt-fs ntfs20:48

matsamantelmac: try chromium, I don't think any chrome you'd get would be anything but a really terrible upstream binary21:52
matsamanthat is: built by google21:52
telmacI'm figuring it's line 721:52
telmacthere was some actual reason why I wanted chrome proper21:52
telmacmy recollection is that I used chromium on debian maybe 7 years ago and it was noticeably worse than google's chrome packages21:53
telmacmaybe this is moot now21:53
matsamanon the one hand, yes, you're more likely to get Google's upstream features working in chrome21:54
matsamanon the other hand, the build is going to be really bad21:54
telmachum hum21:55
sarnoldwhat an unhappy log :/ each of those could have been a cause for the failure21:55
matsamananyone it should be easy to try chromium and see if it's missing something, now21:55
telmacyeah I'm setting things up now21:56
telmacI see it's on the same official version number which is reassuring21:56
matsamananyway* it should, wow21:57
telmacI have a chrome adjacent question, unrelated21:57
* ogra agrees that anyone shoudl try chromium ....21:57
ograonce at least21:57
telmacso there's a problem with wayland support in vscode21:57
telmacinb4 you say to use vscodium21:57
matsamansome old backstory if you're bored: https://spot.livejournal.com/312320.html21:57
sarnoldwow, that is *the* spot21:58
matsamantelmac: use vscodi... aw21:58
telmacI *believe* I actually tried ubuntu's vscodium packages and they have the same problem, but apparently the packages in arch's repos *don't* which is interesting21:58
matsamanso what's the problem?21:58
telmacbasically, you can pass electron apps a flag to use wayland natively21:58
telmacthis is relevant specifically for hidpi support, otherwise I wouldn't really care21:59
telmacand this works fine with obsidian and slack, but it's broken in vscode21:59
telmacI think it's actually some larger problem that vscode is like refusing all flags or something21:59
telmacah, ok, a legitimate reason not to use chromium: it doesn't support google's sync22:00
matsamandoesn't it?22:00
telmac(I also can't find a login button anywhere in the interface)22:01
ograi use a hidpi (4k 13" dell laptop) here and had to recently tst the code snap for someone ... it was totally fine WRT scaling and resolution on wayland22:01
telmacI'm not using the snap, I think I'm using MS's .deb lol22:01
ograthat shouldnt really make a difference one would hope ...22:02
telmacone would hope22:02
telmac@ogra, I just reinstalled it with snap, doesn't seem to help, let me try the electron flag again22:05
telmacwhat version do you have? (of vscode)22:06
ograi didnt have to use any flag ...22:06
telmacso indeed it doesn't help with the flag, same error as I was getting a while back:22:07
ograit was a few weeks ago and i tested for someone else, it is uninstalled again ... but back then i installed from the latest/stable snap channel whetever was recent in there22:07
telmac~$ code --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland22:07
telmacWarning: 'enable-features' is not in the list of known options, but still passed to Electron/Chromium.22:07
telmacWarning: 'ozone-platform' is not in the list of known options, but still passed to Electron/Chromium.22:07
ograthats fine, just a warning ...22:07
telmacwell, but then it just didn't open anything22:07
telmacI'm not very knowledgeable about snap, is the repository the "same" for everyone?22:07
ograits a single package per channel for every distor/relese you install it on22:08
ogra*distro or release22:08
ogratechnically it should work the same everywhere22:09
telmac(and like, out of the box looks like it's rendering at a lower res etc)22:09
telmacwell I'm running 22.1022:09
ograah, 22.04 here22:09
telmacoh interesting22:09
