clarkkUsing 20.04 with gnome 3.36.8.  As the fonts are too small, I have to run vlc using this command:  QT_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTORS=1.5 vlc   How do I make this the default, so that I can just double click on a video file and it will open with this setting?08:51
clarkkbtw, I installed vlc using snap08:51
samIS it safe and a good idea to run two different desktops in the same instance of ubuntu?09:10
koffeinfriedhofsam: With different users it should work. There can be some problems like GNOME-Tracker and Plasmas baloo (both file indexer) running at the same time. Have a look at `systemctl --user status` or similar.09:11
clarkkcan anyone help with this snap application issue?09:16
clarkkhow do I set a variable for a specific snap app?09:16
clarkkthe app is vlc, and I need the variable to be set so it works when I double click a video file09:17
koffeinfriedhofclarkk: No idea about snap, but there should be a desktop-file with an Exec line in it. Try 'Exec=env QT_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTORS=1.5 snap run command' in it. Don't know if this works for snap or if it delivers qt with it (which is unsupported in 20.04 now)09:20
clarkkkoffeinfriedhof, QT_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTORS=1.5 vlc    works at the shell, but I need it to work when I double click on a video09:21
koffeinfriedhofThats why you should use the desktop-file09:21
koffeinfriedhofclarkk: https://specifications.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/09:23
clarkkkoffeinfriedhof, you just said you didn't know if it worked for snap09:23
koffeinfriedhofI don't. But the basic way a gui program is started is with its desktop-file. You can copy the global /usr/share/applications/*vlc*.desktop to ~/.local/share/applications/ and edit it per user. If it works, it works, if not just delete the local file.09:25
koffeinfriedhofwith the env command you alter the environment for the call, like you did on commandline.09:26
clarkkkoffeinfriedhof, there is already a variable in the Exec line. What is the format for adding a variable?  Separate with a space or a semi-colon?09:27
clarkkkoffeinfriedhof, there are no vlc .desktop files in /usr/share/applications/ or ~/.local/share/applications/09:31
koffeinfriedhofclarkk: If the changes are not applied after some seconds, try `update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications`. I do not know how properly gnome handles it09:31
koffeinfriedhofwhere did you find the second variable then?09:32
clarkkthat was an old file from the previous installation09:33
clarkkit was on my desktop09:33
clarkkI must have put it there when I first installed the system09:33
koffeinfriedhofOkay. I'm starting up my Ubuntu-VM and have a look how snaps are started. Wired stuff those snaps ;)09:34
clarkkkoffeinfriedhof, wired, or weird? ;)09:34
koffeinfriedhofsorry weird ;)09:34
clarkkif the latter, then I agree with you. I don't like them at all09:34
clarkkthanks for your help with this koffeinfriedhof09:35
clarkkwhen I press the windows key and type vlc, I see the vlc icon and can start it from there09:35
clarkkso there must be a shortcut somewhere09:35
koffeinfriedhofnp, good to know how it works09:35
koffeinfriedhofcurrently installing the vlc snap… takes as long as installing a full os natively^^09:36
koffeinfriedhofI will try `which vlc` and `type vlc` and probably others09:37
clarkkmine says, vlc is hashed (/usr/bin/vlc)09:41
clarkkbut I uninstalled the apt vlc09:41
clarkkok, I needed to uninstall vlc AND vlc-bin09:42
clarkknow vlc won't run from the command line09:43
EvilGrywhat does it say?09:43
EvilGryit is a strange error for a package installed from apt09:43
koffeinfriedhofWell, seems not to be that easy. One can edit the snap and change variables in it, but thats not a stable way of customization. For me which vlc; type vlc is /snap/bin/vlc09:46
clarkkwhich vlc     /snap/bin/vlc09:47
clarkkok, vlc does run from the shell09:48
clarkktype vlc      vlc is /snap/bin/vlc09:49
koffeinfriedhofWell, there seems to be no configure hook in vlc snap. So there is only a workaround. Create a desktop file yourself, and set it as default for media files. This should work, but I'm trying myself.09:55
koffeinfriedhofclarkk: https://ctxt.io/2/AACQN8IjFw > I created this desktop-file in ~/.local/share/applications/ ran `update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications` and changed the default program to VLC CUSTOM in GNOME Settings. This works for me.10:03

koffeinfriedhofthe update-database was needed here for my VM, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (real LTS β€” main/restricted).10:07
ograclarkk, though note the one in ~/.local will *always* override the snap one now ... if you see odd behavior after a snap update, try to remember you ave overridden it maually (the snap one might have changed) πŸ˜‰10:07
ograkoffeinfriedhof, hmm, it shouldnt, the desktop has an inotify watch for such dire that should execute the command automatically if the dir content changes ... though not sure that works if your homedir is shared with the host10:08

tomreynso it's unclear why we see "Depends: libpurple0 (>= 2.14.0) but it is not going to be installed", because this version would match12:05
tomreynchances are you have some incompatible third party sources installed, preventing this dependency from being resolved properly.12:06

tomreynvershan: okay, so the remaining problem now seems to be that you actually have package versions installed from some unknown source, such as  "apache2/now 2.4.57-2 amd64 [installed,local]", as seen on https://termbin.com/3cub12:51
tomreynthis package has version 2.4.52-1ubuntu4.5 in "jammy" (which is the codename for the Ubuntu 22.04 release)12:52
tomreynbut your system has a higher version installed.12:52
tomreynyou can downgrade all these packages to the versions you should be having. or reinstall.12:53
vershan@tomreyn, how would i go about downgrading12:53
tomreynbe very careful with third party software sources12:53
vershan@tomreyn, noted yeah third party tell me about it.12:54
tomreynto downgrade, first you need to understand which version you actually should be having. replace "apache" in this url by the package you need to find the version for: https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?exact=1&suite=jammy&keywords=apache212:55
tomreynthat's the TARGETVERSION12:55
tomreynthen run  sudo apt install PACKAGENAME=TARGETVERSION12:56
tomreynfor apache2, that would be   sudo apt install apache2=2.4.52-1ubuntu4.412:56
tomreynthis is a very manual process, i'm not aware of a better one.12:56
tomreynand downgrading is not actually supported12:57
vershanahh i see, so reinstall would be a better option12:57
tomreynyes, almost always after such major mistakes ;)12:58
tomreynbut don't loose your data12:58
vershan@tomreyn, yeah mate. the instalation media doesnt have the option to keep data, only two options. 1 to erase disk and reinstall clearing apps and data. 2 to reinstall clearing apps and data but option to encrypt drive or some what13:00
tomreyntwo important things to learn from this: (1) third party repositories can break your installation (2) worse than that, any apt repository you configure effectively gets root on your computer, can do anything on your computer, with or without you noticing.13:01
vershan@tomreyn, absoluty I agree. I'm going to do a fresh install. I'll backup the data first. Really appreciate your hard work and efforts here. True super star mate :)13:02
tomreynvershan: you should always backup your data, regularly so, and know it can actually be restored from that backup. if you do this, breaking disks or file systems or bad system admin (i.e. you) decisions are no longer much of a concern if you can just reinstall and restore your backups.13:03
tomreynyour system still works somewhat in its current state, you can probably still create a tarball with your important data and store that on a different storage media.13:03

RicHi, everyone! I'm new here, so I'd appreciate if anyone could help me understand something: how long can it take for the Ubuntu installer to change the size of a partition? Minutes? Hours?19:47
rboxit deepends on the data in the partition19:47
RicI'm installing Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS 64 bits alongside Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS on a 500 GB HDD. When asked, I decided to allocate 100 GB to the old Ubuntu partition and 400 GB to the new one. The installation process said it could take a while, but as it started there is no progress indicator, and the cursor is just the spinning Ubuntu logo.19:47
RicI'm sure the time it takes it depends on how the data is distributed in the partition as well, but is there any way to peek at the process running in the background to have even a rough estimate of how much longer it might take (or at least how much data still need to be moved)?19:51
rboxyou could try looking at one of the other virutal ocnosles19:52
rboxit might show status19:53
RicI can log to a virtual console, but I'm not sure where to look for this information.20:01
RicAny idea of which program would be doing this, and if it would log somewhere in /var/log/ ?20:01

Rictty1 is the GUI, tty2 to tty6 allow login, so no one is showing progress or status...20:06

rsjenIm trying to set up an http server by using Nginx. By default it works but when I try to change the home directory to another hard drive I get the 404 error with permission denied. I have tried to link the new location in the www directory with no luck. Im going bald due to me pulling my hair out, what am I doing wrong?23:05
rboxnamei -l /the/directory23:06
rboxfor the one that works and the one that doesnt23:06
rsjenThe one that works actually shows 'drwxr -xr -x root root "directory"'23:12
rsjenThe one that doesn't is 'drwx------ $USER www-data "Directory"'23:14
rboxand youre magically expecting the server to be able to access it?23:14
rsjenIf that makes since. Not magically, I just don't know how to make it accessible. Ive changed the host file, I just dont understand what Im missing.23:17
oerheksmaybe a help https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-move-an-nginx-web-root-to-a-new-location-on-ubuntu-20-0423:17
oerheksif that is what you call home folder23:17
rsjenI have followed that guide, but once I change it its not accessible. It has to be with the permissions.23:19
oerheks755 i guess23:19
rboxif you dont understand how permissions work... theres tons of guides that explain them...23:19
EriC^^rsjen: chmod -R 755 /path/to/dir23:21
rboxrandomly chmodding RECURSIVELY is ALWAYS the solution!23:21
EriC^^given the context and user yes23:22
