CroranMy PC doesn't seem to like UEFI-ready Live USBs. Is there an easy way to make an Ubuntu 22.04 LTS live USB with legacy boot only?00:38
akikCroran: i'd think the iso still supports bios boot mode. did you try?00:44
toddcCroran: assuming standard ubuntu 22.04 uefi turned off in bios and booting to the non uefi usb the installer will due both with no issue.  we need more details to help you00:44
akikCroran: turn uefi csm on in your uefi settings00:46
akikCroran: or if it just fails turn off uefi00:46
JanCyou can't "turn off" UEFI00:50
Crorani tried. my system boots to a non-blinking cursor and hangs there01:02
Croranmy system does not have settings for CSM01:02
CroranI guess I will break out the old USB DVD drive and see what old bootable versions I have on disc.01:09
OpenSourceakik, and others, I was able to get it working01:18
OpenSourceI switched to debian instead, got a 32bit machine only, build wine, hunky dory01:18
OpenSourceThanks for your time from before!01:18
akikOpenSource: which ubuntu version?01:23
akikoh debian01:23
Croranlol. 2 hours f'ing around with live USBs for Ubuntu and clonezilla. hook up the USB DVD and it boots first time.01:25
CroranI can only imagine how many novice users end up sending their pre-UEFI systems to landfill after failing to load Ubuntu.01:25
akikCroran: so in which mode did you boot your system?01:31
akikCroran: bios or uefi?01:31
Croranakik: honestly not sure. the 'BIOS Setup' has no settings related to Secure boot or CSM. So I assume it's BIOS, and I assume that's why the 22.04 LTS live USB I made and the Clonezilla Ubuntu UEFI live USB I made both failed.01:32
akikCroran: if you see /sys/firmware/efi you booted in uefi mode01:33
Croranakik: I see acpi, dmi, memmap. no efi.01:33
akikCroran: ok so it booted in bios mode01:34
Bashing-omooppps ^^01:35
akikwhat's the correct way to reinstall a package's config file i removed?01:36
akikapt-get reinstall doesn't do it01:37
akik"Not replacing deleted config file /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-master.conf"01:37
Croranakik: could probably browse to the package on the ubuntu website and download the .deb there and then 'un-ar' it and find your conf file.01:38
akikCroran: i'd like to use apt-get to do it01:39
Croranakik: isn't apt-get deprecated?01:39
akikapt search test >/dev/null01:40
akikWARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface.01:40
akikfound this command from serverfault to reinstall missing config files:02:36

elias_aCroran: Why do you think apt-get would be deprecated? :O07:47
weedmic"The difference between apt and apt-get is not just that apt is a newer version of apt-get. The apt command was designed as a more user-friendly alternative to apt-get, combining the functionality of multiple package management tools for user convenience." amazon07:51
elias_aweedmic: What does that to do whether apt-get is deprecated or not?08:01
weedmicI could see how someone might think it is or becoming deprecated based on such a search.  but it is NOT deprecated nor slated to be (as far as I know).08:08

kubast2what does sys.kernel.perf_event_paranoid imply? What is: raw tracepoint access. Kernel profiling relates to profiling done by the kernel "PERF_TYPE_SOFTWARE" or kernel profiling? Cpu events I guess are "PERF_TYPE_HARDWARE | PERF_TYPE_HW_CACHE".09:32
kubast2The default is 4 and that blocks the use of "CAP_PERFMON,CAP_SYS_PTRACE,CAP_SYSLOG,CAP_IPC_LOCK"09:32
kubast2the kernel perf documentation implies otherwise but I didn't had unprivledged perf work with paranoid 409:33

elias_aIs there an easy way to change the color scheme of Ubuntu terminal to a high contrast one? Dark blue on black is not readable, really...10:20
koderselias_a, You mean gnome-terminal? Edit>Preferences>Profiles>Colors ?10:25
elias_akoders: Yes. I cannot figure out how the colours are changed.10:29
elias_akoders: Oh - now I found it. One has to create a new profile.10:29
kodersyeah i guess10:30
=== docmax is now known as Guest1331
=== docmax_ is now known as docmax
elias_aNope - I still can't understand how to change the colours. Main problem is that directories are shown with dark blue text on black background. Something brighter would be nice.10:34
koderselias_a, In "Palette" the dark blue colour should be on of the palette colours? Click that and change it to a new colour?10:41
mg_hi. is this a help channel?10:43
elias_akoders: Yes - it would be nice to know which use a specific colour is associated with.10:43
elias_amg_: Yes. Ask!10:44
mg_i have a problem with my laptops hdd. it makes too much noise in performance mode. i tried hdparm and other things on ubuntu forums but didnt solve. it makes a sound like old 56k dial up modems.10:46
koderselias_a, i am guessing the dark blue colour would be associated with the current directory for one..10:46
mg_it goes away in power save mode and is lesser in balanced mode10:47
elias_akoders: I found a solution. The key thing to know that the changes are not applied before you start a new terminal window.10:48
mg_elias_a should i wait r u looking for an answer?,11:01
PhalanxerWHY is Canonical withholding SECURITY updates from me when they say they will provide them to me via the Universe channel on a best effort basis? How is withholding them from me best effort?!11:02

yes-ubuntuHello! I have used Nautilus to connect to an ftp server via CTRL + L and after entering the credentials, I choose 2nd option "Remember until end of session" . After I finished using this ftp connection, I unmounted the drive. If I attempt to connect again via CTRL + L I am now connected straight away, as Nautilus now remembers the credentials? Even13:03
yes-ubuntuif I close and reopen Nautilus, this same thing happens? Any way to have this forgotten?13:03
lotuspsychjeyes-ubuntu: think thats session related, did you try logout and back in to gnome to see if it remembers or not?13:09

webchat17I tried to use PROGRAM= to wrap around a find, and look for existing symlinks in the same folder... but, that does not work - as it seems rules are parsed for EVERY device before any changes occurs...15:18
koowgnojeel[FYI] alttab, I made .desktop icon instead :315:19

ravageyou can install Ubuntu from one usb device to another16:38

candlejackI'm trying to install kodi from a ppa and seeing the following line in output.  Does that "500" correspond to a launchpad error?20:13
candlejack      "500 https://ppa.launchpadcontent.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu lunar/main amd64 Packages"20:14
tomreyncandlejack: with the single line of output and no further context i'm not sure whether this "500" is part of an error message (which would be introduced with "E:" or "Error:" or whether this is just the APT source priority.20:18
tomreynit would help to post the full output to a pastebin20:18
candlejacktomreyn: sorry here:20:18

candlejackSo when I run "apt install kodi-pvr-hdhomerun" I get the output here https://dpaste.com/EM88WYVJZ.  What's the best way for me to figure out if the file isn't present in the ppa or if it's a different problem?  I tried looking for it on launchpad but the file https://ppa.launchpadcontent.net/team-xbmc/ppa/ubuntu/dists/lunar/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz doesn't seem to containg that package20:24
ravagethere is only one package for lunar called kodi20:26
