lotuspsychjee25: are you using default snap store, or did you reinstall the old gnome software?03:23

blahboybazif someon is familar with the cloud image or the docekr image based on it..  In that past, when installing ubuntu on bare metal (not docekr image) I recall having to `sudo apt update && sudo apt apgrade` and (often) a great many packages would have to get upgraded - so much so that you would step away and do something else for a while until it completes. Is upgrading not necessary for the cloud06:08
blahboybazimage/docker image? Is it somehow implemented in a way that it is assured to be up to date on any given day that you use it? If so how?06:08

circleHi I am using (K)Ubuntu 22.04.2 live installer [USB] on an 2019 laptop with Secure Boot Enabled. I get a "Verification failed: (0x1A) Security Violation screen, which I guess means that the signing key used for the Ubuntu boot process was not preinstalled in 2019, since the next screen says "Perform MOK management" and offers to enroll a key from07:49

circleCan I do the same process for the shim as the third party drivers?08:38
toddccircle: yes it will accept them after MOK is activated09:13
circleon boot of live/install USB I get bad shim signature09:13
toddcI have never had to repair reinstall but I am sure it can be done. boot repair last time i used it was a bit limited at secureboot not sure if it is better now--09:16
toddccircle: search ubuntu Mok repair there are several guides but I have not tested as it worked on each install I had so far live does not use MOK so may be a issue with your live media09:19
toddccircle: I am no expert but I have installed it 20+ times with out a issue during fresh install09:21
circleI think there was a key update distributed in recent years, and the Ubuntu shim is signed by an updated key. So I think the issue is how to install the updated key, rather than just to sign each OS install.09:21
circleDoes this make sense?09:21
circleUbuntu booted fine in Secure Boot until I reset the BIOS, and lost any updated keys09:21
toddcnot that I have seen  I use MOK on 20.04 and 22.04 I think updating the bios may hace wiped to path to the key so finding the path to the key may be the issue. during a fresh install MOK sets the path automaticly09:24

ni-uxis there a good way to configure apt to never use snap? there are some packages where it seems to deceive you into thinking you're installing a real package but then it reinstalls snap and then a "snap" package version of the app11:36
lotuspsychjeni-ux: purge snapd if you dont want to use snaps?11:40
ni-uxyes, but then some packages reinstall snap rather than using a real package11:40
ni-uxreally it would be better if we just move away from snap entirely - it isn't suitable for production use so at work we end up having to double check its removed from any servers and for personal people could always install it themselves if for some reason they want to have no autonomy or control over updates and to waste tons of disk space by creating little needlessly isolated package environments for everything11:41
lotuspsychjethis is an ubuntu server ni-ux ?11:42
ni-uxboth server and desktop seem to have the cancer yes11:42
lotuspsychjedont think its possible to ditch on server11:42
ni-uxit is - just takes some work11:43
lotuspsychjeogra: maybe you can advice here^11:43
migratbecause snaps makes life easier for packages maintainers sometimes, they don't need to deal many different dependencies library version etc.11:43
ni-uxright but package maintainer laziness isn't really a reason to do something at scale11:43
ni-uxjust release source tarballs if you dont' want to make a deb or rpm11:44
ni-uxif someone only releases snaps their software is probably buggy and poorly written anyway11:45
ravageSnaps will stay an important part of Ubuntu11:46
migratAn option flag to prevent apt / synaptic to install snaps or flatpacks etc could be cool anyway.11:46
ravageIf you don't like snap at all choose another distribution11:46
migratthere's also .appimage files all pack into a single file.11:47
ni-uxI've been using ubuntu for 15+ years - it would suck if they make poor decisions that lead to having to choose an alternative11:47
ni-uxif you're really sold on lazy package management at least use flatpak where there is some control over updates11:47
ravageFeel free to discuss in #ubuntu-discuss11:48
lotuspsychjelets not drag this into a discussion here ni-ux11:48

flafHi everybody. I'm trying to understand how an APT upgrade via unattended-upgrade is triggered on Ubuntu 22.04. According to my searchs on Web, upgrades are triggered by a systemd timer apt-daily-upgrade which launches the commad "/usr/lib/apt/apt.systemd.daily install". But the systemd unit belongs to the package apt, not unattended-upgrade package. And unattended-upgrade has it owned daemon (the14:04
flafcommand /usr/share/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrade-shutdown --wait-for-signal). In this case, what is the goal of this daemon? Which system component triggers the automatic upgrade? Thx.14:04
iorianope, that script just temporarily inhibits a shutdown signal until apt finishes14:06
flafioria: ah ok thx. 1) So, in this case, the command “systemctl disable unattended-upgrades.service” doesn't disable automatic upgrades, correct? To disable automatic upgrades, I have to do “systemctl disable apt-daily-upgrade.service”, correct? 2) The daemon apt-daily-upgrade belongs to "apt" package. So, if the package unattended-upgrade is uninstalled (but not apt), what does the daemon14:11
ograthe systemd timer is a direct replacement of the former cron apt daily/weekly stuff ... unattended upgrades just hooks into that mechanism14:12
ioriai guess a simple 'dpkg-reconfigure -plow unattended-upgrades' willdo it14:12
oerheksioria, +114:12
ograyeah, what ioria said14:12
ioriaand you can check 20auto-upgrades  ; it should be all set to zero  iirc14:15
flafoerheks: ioria: Ok and if unattended is not installed, the systemd unit “apt-daily-upgrade.service” just does... nothing?14:15
ioriaflaf, we should reread the script to be sure :þ14:16
ioria this ib/apt/apt.systemd.daily14:18
jhutchinsWhat determines when an un-installed package appears in dpkg -l even after it's been purged (it shows as "un")?14:18
ioriai mean : /usr/lib/apt/apt.systemd.daily14:18
flafioria: in the script, I can see this line “command -v unattended-upgrade ... && ...“. So I am probably not far from the truth.14:18
flafioria and oerheks: thx for your help.14:19
ioriano prob14:19
ioriajhutchins, un = unknown ?14:22
ograit doesnt "just do nothing" ... the timer does a lot beyond triggering unattended upgrades, i.e. all the apt hygiene bits based on apt config (which is why you should not tinker with the timer but only with unattended-upgrades itself)14:23
jhutchinsioria: I believe that's "uninstalled".14:24
jhutchinsIn the first field which shows ii for installed packages.14:24
jhutchinsI do have a bunch that are "rc" (I think that's removed, configured (the configuration file has not been purged).14:25
jhutchinsioria: Yes, I know what they mean, I want to know why a package shows as un instead of just not being listed.14:26
ograun -> unknown and not installed (you have to read the two letters separately)14:27
ioriajhutchins, you need some research ; apt-cache policy pkg14:27
flafogra: ok. But if I want to change the moment when an upgrade via unattended-upgrade is done, I have to override the timer "apt-daily-upgrade.service", no? Because by default it's between 6:00-7:00 (AM).14:28
ograflaf, you maintain that in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20auto-upgrades IIRC14:29
ograsee https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades#automatic_call_via_.2Fetc.2Fapt.2Fapt.conf.d.2F02periodic14:30
ioriaSome configuration files might be 'unknown' to dpkg because they are created and handled separately through the configuration scripts14:31
flafogra: not in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20auto-upgrades because it's the systemd timer "apt-daily-upgrade.timer" which chooses when the unattended-upgrade is run.14:32
flafogra: in your url there is my answer https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades#Modifying_download_and_upgrade_schedules_.28on_systemd.29 <= it's a change of the unit apt-daily-upgrade.timer indeed.14:34
ograflaf, wrong, the timer only choses when to trigger all the apt things ... unattended-upgrades is only one of them and should be maaged via the config14:35
jhutchinsDoes apt autoremove take a "purge" argument?14:42
flafogra: to you, which system component run the “unattended-upgrade” command? To me, it's the systemd timer "apt-daily-upgrade.timer" which contains “OnCalendar=*-*-* 6:00” (ie at 6:00 AM with a random delay), this timer run the command “/usr/lib/apt/apt.systemd.daily install” defined in the systemd unit “apt-daily-upgrade.service”, and this command run the command14:42
flaf“unattended-upgrade”. So, to me, to change the moment the moment when unattended-upgrade is run, I have to edit/override the timer "apt-daily-upgrade.timer", and this is documented in your URL https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades in section 3. Am I wrong?14:42
oerheksjhutchins, yes14:43
oerheksYes, but not every file related to package is deleted as purge doesn't remove data stored by packages inside the home directory or other special directories.14:43
oerheksso, your pics will remain, made with an obscure paint program 😛14:44
jhutchinsTheoretically there is no saved data, as these programs have never been used.  (Mostly gnome/GUI stuff on a server.)14:44
oerheksoke, then you are fine14:44
ograflaf, the point is that this timer is an apt part, it runs a ton of other stuff to keep apt clean and working fine ... apt explicitly offers config options for managing the unattended-upgrades side14:46
flafogra said: “apt explicitly offers config options for managing the unattended-upgrades side” <= yes but not for managing the moment when unattended-upgrades is run, because it's set in the “timer apt-daily-upgrade.timer”. Do we agree? Or is this doc wrong => https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades#Modifying_download_and_upgrade_schedules_.28on_systemd.29 ?14:50
ograflaf, i pointed you to the doc above ...14:54
ograit has settings for scheduling unattended-upgrades ....14:55

matsamanit's very unlikely anything a person would want from synergy is not offered by barrier16:49
relipsei don' get it, i tried barrier and synergy and the mouse is very lagged on my ubuntu box16:52
matsamanwhat's your setup?16:52
matsamanOSes, network, &c16:53
relipseWindows 11 Professional as server and Ubuntu 22.04 xorg as client on right side, both connected to ehternet wired16:59
matsamansame barrier version on each?17:00
matsamanserver is probably better on Ubuntu, if it can be17:00
relipseyes tried both same barrier version and same synergy version same thing17:10
leftyfbrelipse: cat /sys/class/net/$(ip route |awk '/default/ {print $5}')/speed17:14
leftyfbrelipse: what does that give you?17:14
relipsecat: /sys/class/net/enxa0cec889d169: Is a directory17:15
relipsecat: wlp1s0/speed: No such file or directory17:15
leftyfbrelipse: you have both wired and wireless on your ubuntu machine. You're probably using the ip of the wifi interface for synergy/barrier17:15
leftyfbrelipse: sorry, both wired and wireless are active17:16
leftyfbI would recommend disabling wifi and then try17:16
relipse cat /sys/class/net/$(ip route |awk '/default/ {print $5}')/speed17:18
leftyfbOk, now reconnect synergy17:20
jo-erlendIs barrier a new thing or based on the original synergy from when it was open source?17:34
leftyfbjo-erlend: https://github.com/debauchee/barrier17:38
jo-erlendleftyfb, right. Then I think it's the one I've used before.17:45
ForeverNoob[m]If this command resulted in 0 bad blocks, should I assume the drive is fine? badblocks -sv -p 3 -b 4096 /dev/sda -o bbresult.txt18:07
jhutchinsForeverNoob[m]: It's OK if you have some bad blocks, what you want to watch for is if they start increasing.  You might look at the smartmontools package.18:14
jhutchins!info smartmontools18:14
ubottusmartmontools (7.3-1, kinetic): control and monitor storage systems using S.M.A.R.T.. In component main, is optional. Built by smartmontools. Size 605 kB / 2,045 kB18:14
tomreynif badblocks finds any bad blocks this way, it means they were either previously unknown to the drive firmware or the drive has run out of reserved / replacement blocks. generally, i'd prefer a smart long self test (-t long) over badblocks tests (which only tests currently usable blocks), and can unneccessarily increase wear (and cause data loss with -w).18:24
tomreynthis said, smart tests aren't really reliable either, but at least provide soem indication.18:25
matsamanForeverNoob[m]: you should assume the drive is fine until you have a reason to suspect it isn't18:28
relipseok i switched the server to ubuntu 22.04 machine and it is much faster, the issue here is that is not the way I have my computers set up18:41
relipsefor synergy18:41
jhutchinsIt seems like dmesg is where I've seen growing bad blocks reported.  I don't know if that's due to smartmontools or something else.18:55
ForeverNoob[m]matsaman: My FS was suddenly RO and when I rebooted it dropped me into initramfs after failing a fsck. I did a long SMART selftest and the above badblocks. Everything seems fine, but still. Should I throw away that SSD just to be sure?18:55
jhutchinsForeverNoob[m]: You should monitor it closely, test it daily if it's not reporting in dmesg, and if you see anything like increasing bad blocks order the replacement.18:57
jhutchinsForeverNoob[m]: I would suggest backups, but nobody ever listens to that.18:57
SuperLagFirefox seems pretty crucial to the Ubuntu install. I was getting an error about the snap, something about it not being connected? 🤔 I don't remember exactly. What I ended up doing was "sudo snap uninstall firefox" then "sudo snap install firefox". I'm wondering if the uninstall broke anything further because of how much it took with it, and if the install then fixed it all?19:02
ForeverNoob[m]jhutchins: To my defense I did have backups, but they were outdated :p19:05
csexecutiveForeverNoob[m], respectfully then oyu didnt have backups if they were untested and/or recent19:11
ForeverNoob[m]Fair point.19:11
matsamanForeverNoob[m]: keep backups, replace hardware that is consistently problematic, that's it19:12
matsamanno smart required19:12
ograSuperLag, typically snaps take daa snapshots and restore them whn you re-install ... unless you use the --purge argument for "remove", so it should still have the same data as before ... next time better note down what was not connected and ask here ... or simply use the "snap connect ..." command yourself 😉19:19
jhutchinsForeverNoob[m]: If the drive hasn't failed outright you can certainly update your backups in case the drive is failing.19:33
jhutchins(If it's not, bonus: you get backups.)19:33

AlbrightDo packages not generally get point releases for the LTS releases? More specifically, can I expect a PHP 8.2 release for 22.04 LTS some day?19:50
jo-erlendAlbright, in general, Ubuntu wants to change as little as possible during the lifetime of a release. PHP should remain at the original version forever.19:51
jo-erlendAlbright, they still receive fixes, but they are backported to the original version. So no worries about security or things like that.19:51
sarnoldAlbright: some things like mysql and mariadb get updated in that style https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#New_upstream_microreleases  but it's pretty rare19:53
Albrightjo-erlend: Okay, I was expecting that. Thanks. Fortunately we don't *need* 8.2 just yet but 8.1 will go EOL far before 22.04 does… guess we'll just consider upgrading the whole system to the next LTS when that time comes, if it's available19:54
jo-erlendAlbright: Ubuntu will maintain 8.1 forever. Ten years. One of the huge advantages of using Ubuntu.19:54
AlbrightTen years beyond PHP's EOL date?19:55
jo-erlendAlbright: ten years from release of 22.04LTS, meaning until 2032.19:55
AlbrightSo even beyond the EOL of 22.04? huh.19:56
jo-erlendAlbright, yes.19:56
sarnoldAlbright: main gets five years of support for free; you can buy additional support beyond that, if you want https://ubuntu.com/pro19:56
sarnoldAlbright: there's also two free tiers for additional support19:56
jo-erlendAlbright, you'll need Ubuntu Pro for the last five years, but it's free for three systems for non-commercial and very cheap for commercial use too.19:57
ravageAlbright: for PHP updates there a well maintained PPA at https://deb.sury.org/ . but keep in mind we cant give support for that here. a bug tracker for that PPA exists19:57
Albrightravage: I'm aware of those packages but I'm a little leery of trusting third-party package sources no matter how popular they are19:58
ravagefair point19:58
ravagethen see messages above19:58
AlbrightMaybe it's irrational, but…19:58
sarnoldit's very rational :)19:59
sarnoldondrej seems like a nice guy but it's an additional risk19:59
AlbrightYeah, I guess I'll just re-evaluate stuff with the client once PHP 8.1 goes EOL and see what we want to do then19:59
jo-erlendAlbright; it's not irrational, because it's not just about trusting the developer to not do something wrong, but also about trusting them to not be hacked. Because PPA owners can send anything they want to your system to be run as root, so if they get hacked, you get hacked also. Limiting its use on important system is important.20:00
AlbrightYeah, exactly.20:00
jo-erlendAlbright, you should look at Ubuntu's history of dealing with this, which is extensive. PHP is an enormous important thing and to my knowledge, Ubuntu has never failed. Not once, not ever.20:00
sarnoldjo-erlend: heh I love the enthusiasm but we do make mistakes :)20:01
jo-erlendsarnold, sure. I don't remember any big issues ever having occurred with PHP though. It's not a guarantee it never will. :)20:02
SuperLagogra: doh20:03
SuperLagdidn't know about "snap connect"20:03
SuperLagI'll still have to look up syntax for it20:03

jhutchinschonkin: The way this works is that you give a through but susinct summary of the problem and see who responds.21:32
sarnoldprabhakarlad: two things jump out .. '-aarm64' feels weird, I've never seen aarm64 before. i've seen aarch64 and I've seen arm64. also, ending the CROSS_COMPILE with a - feels odd. I can't say that's wrong, but it feels weird.21:32
superdiskHi. I'm trying make a small tweak to a kernel module that ship with Ubuntu (gspca_sunplus). I got the kernel sources with `apt-get source linux`, then the headesr with `apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)`, then ran oldconfig and all that stuff, then finally `make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) modules` but I'm getting: "fatal error: gspca.h: No such file or directory" and it does seem that `find /usr/src -name21:37
superdisk'gspca.h' -print` shows nothing. So is the header missing or something?21:37

Didact ok, so like 5 years ago I installed a SSD in my PC on sata 3 and switched it to boot from it, but left in my old HD, apparently because if I turn off sata0 the computer won't boot.  Thoughts?21:48
chonkinoerheks , since you brought that up.  uname -a  shows  #74-20.01.1-Ubuntu .  But Gnome settings shows  OS Name= Ubuntu 20.04.5 LTS21:50
oerhekschonkin, any held back packages when you update from comandline?21:50
oerheksDidact, maybe one is old MBR, and your SSD is UEFI?21:50
oerheksor your old hdd has no bootsector, too little info21:51
Didactwell, it seems to be a bios thing... cuz the BIOS says can't boot if I go into the BIOS and turn of SATA021:54
Didacthope that helps21:54
oerhekswhy would you turn of sata?21:54
Didactsata0... that hard disk21:54
oerheksand how is this an ubuntu issue?21:54
DidactI'm booting into ubuntu21:55
oerheksthan do not turn off sata0?21:55
Didactwell, I want to replace it w/ a 4 tb from my old machine21:56

e25If I wanted to follow debian simplebackport to backport from sid to jammy, is that bad idea?  Or should be safe?  If safe, how do I add the key so the deb-src blahblah sid blahblah line works?22:01
jhutchinse25: What are you backporting and why?22:02
oerhekse25 mixing packages from debian could well be a bad idea, not supported here22:02
e25jhutchins: srain, for fun22:02
e25since jammy has kinda old version and there's no flatpak22:02
jhutchinse25: Um, sid is Debian, isn't it?22:02
e25yeah I was thinking if I built it on jammy from debian source is that still evil?  I guess it is eh?22:03
jhutchinse25: Debian != Ubuntu.22:03
e25No shit?22:03
e25That's why I'm asking, so you're thinking it's a bad idea?22:03
jhutchinse25: You're possibly better off going to the upstream git source.  You might want to look at the patches Debian applies and choose those carefully.22:04
e25Can I do the same thing from ubuntu-devel?  That what my nex tthought, but it was debian's wiki I found and havent found it about ubuntu22:04
jhutchinse25: I would expect that building it from Devel would be a lot safer.22:04
e25I'm not expert at building stuff so following simple backport procedure, that creates an actual package, seemed better than me than random sudo make install that i cant really be sure to undo22:04
oerheksif you use sudo make install, it builds an uninstall script too..22:05
jhutchinse25: Some of the stuff is 1:1 between the two distros, but some is pretty radically different.  At best it might not work, at worst it might screw other things up.22:05
Didactok, bbl, need to test some stuff on the linux box which is my gateway to here22:05
e25oerhawk: doesnt that depend on the author?  and even so, it may or may not overwrite regular ubuntu stuff22:05
e25and if it does, and it removes it stuff, it may or may n ot restore ubuntu stuff22:05
e25i feel safer installing with package manager22:06

e25I just tried nheko (matrix client) and it seems to be missing a dependency or something.  Any suggestion what I should install?  https://i.imgur.com/vE5bkc3.png23:30
e25(This is on ubuntu-server based system so no desktop package installed this, although I have since installed x&e)23:31
e25i guess just install gnome-keyring?23:32
e25should be a dependency imo23:32
tomreynhow did you install this software, how is it packaged?23:33
leftyfbe25: nheko from the ubuntu repo's installs 119 packages, mainly as part of the GUI desktop so it runs, which is your issue23:34
leftyfbit's a Qt-based app23:34
e25I installed with `sudo apt install nheko`23:35
e25It is packaged in traditional deb package in jammy repo.23:36
e25leftyb: but gnome-keyring isnt one of them23:36
tomreynin *universe*, notably. the jammy version depends on libqt5keychain1 (>= 0.7.0) - Qt API to store passwords (QT5 version)23:37
tomreynso you may just miss dbus and kwallet, but i'm not sure about that really23:38

tomreyn"apt list --installed libc6" on 18.04 LTS would report 2.27-3 on a fully updated 18.04 LTS23:50
tomreynthat's not 2.23, which you would not see on a non-broken 18.04 LTS installation.23:51
tomreynit is still lower than 2.28, which the incompatible software you are trying to run depends on.23:51
