BillGHeroIs this the right place for problems that appear to be Gnome/GDM related?02:19
dufluBillGHero, yes it is02:34
dufluBut most of the team is in other timezones02:34
BillGHeroDoes that mean I should try at a different time?02:44
jameshBillGHero: maybe explain your problem.  If we can help, then great.02:46
BillGHeroOk. And thanks in advance.02:48
BillGHeroI have a Ubunt 18.04 clean isntall. Worked fine for a couple weeks. Now GDM will not present the GUI login screen.02:49
dufluBillGHero, can you please create a bug report by running 'ubuntu-bug gdm3' ?02:50
dufluWe'll need to use that to collect info about your system and figure it out02:51
jameshBillGHero: what's the output of "systemctl status gdm3" (you can copy the output to https://paste.ubuntu.com/)02:51
BillGHerojamesh, sure thing https://pastebin.com/29thHK5r02:53
dufluBillGHero, please create a bug report with 'ubuntu-bug gdm3'02:54
BillGHeroduflu, working on it. Can't send it by web browser right now so...02:54
BillGHero* haven't used scp before :)02:56
BillGHero* actually, let me see if I can pastebin it. It is long...02:57
BillGHeroduflu Bug-report: https://pastebin.com/ve4AMfJc02:58
dufluBillGHero, that should have created a bug on launchpad. If not then please create it manually here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdm3/+filebug02:59
jameshBillGHero: if you've got another machine with working gui, I think you can copy the .apport file over and then run "ubuntu-bug apport.gdm3.c6t5_xkc.apport"03:01
jameshthat should start the bug report process03:01
BillGHerojamesh, Ok I have started the bug report.03:08
BillGHerojamesh, how detailed should I make the 'Further Information' block?03:12
jameshBillGHero: if you remember anything changing on the system between when GDM worked and when it stopped working, include that.03:13
BillGHeroOk. It is submitted. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdm3/+bug/177737803:15
ubot5Ubuntu bug 1777378 in gdm3 (Ubuntu) "GDM no longer presents GUI login Ubuntu 18.04" [Undecided,New]03:15
BillGHeroHopefully running ubuntu-bug on a different machine won't cloud the submitted files any. ;)03:15
jameshThe info in the bug looks like it matches the .apport file you pasted earlier03:17
dufluBillGHero, please dont run that command on a different machine03:17
jameshduflu: he was doing it using the .apport file generated on the problem machine03:18
dufluotp...03:18
BillGHerootp?03:19
dufluon the phone03:25
dufluStill on the phone but see the bug report...03:29
BillGHeroduflu, if you are the one asking for the apport-collect, it is waiting for a browser window to open. It is waiting in vein as there is no GUI available right now (the whole reason for my seeking help).04:09
BillGHeroIs there any other method to accomplish this under the circumstances?04:09
BillGHeroI am attempting the fix from #504:11
BillGHeroduflu, Is there any command I should run after changeing custom.conf, prior to reboot?04:27
dufluBillGHero, it's fine the run the command on the affected machine, then copy and paste the link onto another04:31
dufluBillGHero, no just reboot04:31
BillGHeroduflu, apport files are now on bug page.04:40
dufluBillGHero, thanks. Please respond in the bug, where there are more questions04:43
BillGHeroduflu, performed the manual downgrade from #12. Also ran an update with apport. There is also an observation relating to the GDM3 service. posted in case it helps.05:27
dufluBillGHero, I know, thanks. Answering now05:27
jibelGood morning05:52
dufluMorning jibel05:54
jibelHi duflu05:54
jibelduflu, so we finally figured out what was broken on uefi systems.05:55
jibels/was/is/05:55
duflujibel, I think I saw, but I don't understand. Glad you do05:55
jibelduflu, it's a change in the dependencies and a package that configures grub and the efi partition is missing.05:56
jibelbut it is not as simple a just readding the dep apparently because it must not be installed on cloud images afaiu05:57
dufluReal bugs are never simple :)06:00
dufluBack in a bit06:07

seb128good morning desktopers08:00
dufluMorning seb12808:01
Laneywhat's up08:01
seb128hey duflu, Laney, how are you?08:01
didrockshey Laney08:01
dufluseb128, surprisingly busy. One of those days where everyone replies at once. You?08:01
seb128haha, getting code reviews? ;)08:02
dufluseb128, that and bug reporters and family...08:02
seb128I'm not great yet, but maybe that come once coffee kicks in? w.e was good but I had a few work things in mind when I stopped on friday that I didn't manage to fully put aside and didn't relax as much as I wanted due to that :/08:03
dufluseb128, me too. I was actually wishing I had a longer weekend in order to get some work done before Monday08:03
didrocksseb128: try to disconnect your brain more ;)08:04
Laneyhey seb128 didrocks duflu08:16
Laneyseb128: good, went back for a family party & saw the kids08:17
Laneytired last night though, was in bed very early :-)08:17
Laneydon't know how you parents do it08:17
didrocksnot great when kid wake up multiple times a night :p08:18
seb128yeah, I don't know how we do it either08:20
seb128w.e was fun but exhausting, I had 2 or 3 small things I wanted to do/look at for me this week, didn't manage to do any of those08:20
seb128the kid doesn't like to play alone, he's always asking for us08:21
seb128we were also invited to another kid birthday's party on saturday, in a place for kids with lot of floor big cushions, balls, etc, you can let them go around safely, that was fun08:22
seb128and I got a "lunch on a pancakes boat" as a gift yesterday08:23
seb128that was nice/fun as well, but lot of kids around so noisy :/08:23
dufluHi Laney08:27
dufluA pancakes boat sounds very Dutch08:31
seb128heh08:47
seb128didrocks, g-c-c SRU made it to -updates if you want to follow up with what you had queued09:03
didrocksseb128: excellent! Will do, thanks :)09:05
seb128thank you!09:05
Nafallohrm. I think I've got another bug now that I finally picked up a dock for my XPS13.10:28
Nafalloseem Terminator is static on both screens, even when I've got Firefox selected on the second one.10:28
Nafallohmm. no. it's worse.10:29
Nafallothe program that was last selected on the primary display is the one that show up at the top left on both screens... whatever I have on the second screen seems like it's getting ignored.10:30
Trevinhohi guyz10:33
Nafallohey Trevinho :-)10:33
Trevinhohi Nafallo10:33
TrevinhoLaney: hey10:33
Laneyhi Trevinho10:39
Laneyhow's it going?10:39
Trevinhogood10:39
Trevinhoyou?10:39
Laneyyah i'm good10:41
TrevinhoLaney: I've pushed the branches in https://code.launchpad.net/~3v1n0/ubuntu/+source/gnome-shell/+git/gnome-shell branches, now the one is marked as ubuntu/master actually should be like ubuntu/bionic-3.28.2-sru once that is finalized (or like ubunt/bionic) while in the master-next there's a full merge with debian too for cosmic. Good thing is that I've fully kept our history in the /debian/* (as I wanted to do for others)10:41
Laneygot some sweets10:41
Trevinhogood :)10:41
Laneyumm10:42
Trevinhowhile https://code.launchpad.net/~3v1n0/ubuntu/+source/gnome-shell/+git/gnome-shell/+merge/348099 is the change for the SRU10:42
Laneyi'll have to take a look at those to see what you did10:42
TrevinhoI've to finish adding patches to the SRU though10:43
TrevinhoLaney: and ah, yeah, I've also to update some debian settings and dbp stuff, that's just a merge of content for now. but the rest is easy10:44
LaneyTrevinho: can you just make there be ubuntu/master and ubuntu/bionic please? this is confusing to me10:50
Nafalloso... when I verify an SRU, should I change both verfification-needed and verification-needed-bionic or just the bionic one?10:51
TrevinhoLaney: in master and bionic you want what we've currently in lp:~dt...?10:53
Trevinhoor the updated one?10:53
Laneywhat is this subtree thing?10:53
LaneyTrevinho: you can add a tag for the current versions then it's easy to see the diff10:54
LaneyIf it's OK I can just push those tags to the branches10:54
Laneythe next commit after that could be fixing up the debian/ stuff for git10:55
TrevinhoLaney: basically you merge two branches with unrelated histories, under a prefix..10:55
LaneyNafallo: you can change v-needed if there's no other releases to verify10:55
LaneyTrevinho: are you doing something complicated :/10:55
NafalloLaney: cheers, fixing.10:55
TrevinhoLaney: no, not really.. I just hate to trash logs10:55
Trevinhoit's just few commands, but at least you keep everything around10:56
Laneylike I see Debian's history10:56
Laneyand then something to do with importing a subtree10:56
Trevinhoyou should see both10:56
Laneythen a commit from oSoMoN10:56
Trevinhothat's depending on the visualizer10:56
Laneyand then some merge thing10:56
Trevinhouse a git graph view10:56
Trevinhogitg for example or something that shows things per branches and time10:57
Laneyit's a bit annoying to go away and invent a new way of dealing with things on your own on the side10:57
TrevinhoLaney: to be fair the best way to do it would have been checkout at where ubuntu and debian forked, merge the debian salsa there, and then pull the remaining stuff from ubuntu, but that would be a bit time consuming10:58
Trevinhothat was just what I proposed since the beginning. there's really nothing different from just merging. And I'd actually would love to fix also what has been already moved to git10:59
Trevinhoi could also do things in the inversed way in case, so start from salsa and then merge there ubuntu if you prefer, there's no really difference on that, just want to preserve history there.11:03
Trevinhoin any case we can't just use current salsa as base... Well I've done that too, but it's quite different and seb said to do the sync with debian later only for cosmic11:11
Trevinho(and that's what ubuntu/mastern-next is about)11:11
Laneyif others don't need to know about the subtree things I think it's good, you get better history there11:12
Laneyand you can fix the others if you can do it without rebasing if you want11:12
Laneyfor converting other things, find the last fork point and merge in from there to make it look like what we have in Ubuntu now11:13
Laneythen we can merge back in from salsa to do the next update11:14
Trevinhoyeah, that was what I though to do too as written, I'd just need to merge the ubuntu things earlier, shouldnt' be much different11:14
Laneyyou need to write this down if you want other people to do the same11:15
TrevinhoI've written in the hub, time ago... Not the commands though11:16
Laneyhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/git this page11:16
Trevinhowhich I hope I just I didn't just get them lost with the last reboot -_-11:16
Trevinhobut, yeah11:16
LaneyI would usually merge the debian tags rather than the branch11:21
Laneyunless we want something unreleased11:21
Trevinhoyes, sure11:21
Laneyalright11:22
Laneyk let me know again when it's updated once more11:23
Trevinhook11:23
Laneyneed to go stare at my VM some more11:23
Laneythx!11:23
Trevinhoafter lunch11:23
seb128Trevinho, hey, did you see the review comment from Seth on the fprintd MIR? he's asking about the "dbus-policy-without-send-destination" lintian warning, would be nice if you could have a look/respond there13:18
