GerowenWhat does "unattended-upgrades" do by default with new versions of configuration files?  When I dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades , the only option it asks me about is whether to enable or disable the feature as a whole.00:11

tomreynjacobRD23: you wrote "I was AFK; I didn't get the msg", which suggests that you're responding to someoene who contacted you here on this #ubuntu channel before. lefty noticed this and asked our channel bot 'ubottu' to tell you that if you're responding to someone in particular, you should always prefix your response using their nickname.00:17

Gerowentomreyn: That seems to be what I've found online.  Right now I'm browsing the 50unattended-upgrades config file and checking out what options are in here.00:42
leftyfbmikubuntu: how did you install opera?00:42
mikubuntuleftyfb: can't remember it's been so long00:43
leftyfbmikubuntu: snap list | grep opera00:44
leftyfbmikubuntu: run that in a terminal. Does it give a result?00:44
mikubuntuleftyfb: no output, just went back to prompt00:45
sarnoldtry snap find opera00:46
leftyfbsarnold: I know opera is available in snap. That's not what I was looking for00:46
sarnoldleftyfb: ah! I see. :)00:46
leftyfbmikubuntu: ok, unfortunately, opera is not part of ubuntu repositories so it's unsupported here. You can maybe google around for where opera stores it's settings and wipe them00:47
mikubuntuleftyfb: okey dokes thx for help with ff00:48
leftyfbmikubuntu: it might be ~/.opera or ~/.Opera00:48

Oderushi. id like to install a package that is not in the default repository, but it has many dependancies that i don't want to go through manually. is there a repo i could add to get this? https://packages.ubuntu.com/disco/libgtk-3-dev01:03
CodeMouse92Oderus: Are you *running* Disco? That's my first question01:03
Oderusyes01:03
CodeMouse92!info libgtk-3-dev disco01:05
ubottulibgtk-3-dev (source: gtk+3.0): development files for the GTK+ library. In component main, is optional. Version 3.24.8-1ubuntu1 (disco), package size 1015 kB, installed size 13169 kB01:05
CodeMouse92Oderus: Is that what you're wanting? ^^01:05
Oderusyes! i am not sure why i can't find it in my repos01:06
CodeMouse92Oderus: Did you run 'sudo apt update' first?01:06
CodeMouse92Otherwise, apt won't be able to see *anything*01:06
zdorovoI'm selling my old laptop and I want to erase all my data from it and install a fresh copy of ubuntu. I did this by plugging in the live usb, running sudo shred /dev/sda, and running the installer. However, the installer is throwing an error as soon as it tries to write to disk. Did I brick my harddrive?01:06
OderusCodeMouse92: i don't know what my problem is but i did now find it.. it is installing /blush01:06
CodeMouse92zdorovo: You can't really "brick" a hard drive, unless you physically kill it. You can try using Gparted to recreate your partition table and go from there (off the top of my head)01:07
CodeMouse92Oderus: Bravo! When in doubt, `sudo apt update` first, and then try `sudo apt search whatever-package-name`01:07
leftyfbzdorovo: what sort of errors?01:08
leftyfbzdorovo: can you screenshot or pastebin?01:08
OderusCodeMouse92: thank you. now to try and figure out why cmake is giving me errors :301:10
CodeMouse92Oderus: If that's C/C++ related, Q probably better suited for a programming channel (e.g. ##c++-friendly or #learnprogramming)01:11
CodeMouse92(P.S. I'm in both)01:11
zdorovoleftyfb: here's a photo: https://imgur.com/a/sZ04bGR01:12
zdorovoCodeMouse92: hmmm, I thought the installer made a partition table for you?01:13
leftyfbzdorovo: open a terminal and type: dmesg   # see if there's any errors there and with which device01:13
CodeMouse92zdorovo: not necessarily.01:13
CodeMouse92zdorovo: Is that an HDD or a SSD?01:13
leftyfbzdorovo: it does. There's no need to check partition tables01:13
OderusCodeMouse92: ok great thanks. I am not necessarily a programmer, just trying to compile an old package heh01:13
zdorovoCodeMouse92: it's an HDD01:13
tomreynzdorovo: just a hint for later (obviously need to solve the write issues first), consider this for a full wipe (read all the warnings): https://ata.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/ATA_Secure_Erase01:13
zdorovotomreyn: gotcha, thanks!01:14
coz_tomreyn, is Dban considerably safe?01:14
CodeMouse92zdorovo: Def look for dmesg errors, like leftyfb said. From the live environment, however, you can also run a SMART test with `sudo smartctl --test=short /dev/sda` (replace /dev/sda with the device name of the hard drive)01:15
leftyfbyes, though it takes a toll on SSD's. As will any "wipe" tools01:15
CodeMouse92You may need to install the `smartmontools` package first01:15
leftyfbCodeMouse92: there's a "disks" util in the live cd that runs SMART tests01:15
CodeMouse92leftyfb: Yes, I know, but the output isn't nearly as useful. (I've used both in the field)01:15
zdorovoleftyfb: CodeMouse92: here's the output from dmesg https://pastebin.com/6hHwngcm01:17
OerHekszdorovo, after shred, did you boot into live and made a new partition table mbr or GPT? the installer will find none..01:17
leftyfbzdorovo: I take it that is the output from booting into a fresh live session? Not from the same session where you tried to install? I see no drive errors in that output01:18
zdorovoleftyfb: hmm, I don't think it's a fresh live session, though it was a couple days ago that I tried installing ubuntu. I'll try installing again and post fresh output from dmesg01:20
leftyfbzdorovo: ok, then I'm guessing it might be your install media/memory issue01:20
RandolfWebcamoid, installed via apt, results in a Segmentation Fault when I try to use it.01:20
RandolfIs anyone using Webcamoid?01:21
tomreyncoz_: supposedly yes (but that's rather off-topic here, maybe try ##linux). personally, if i ever have to pass a storage containing unencrypted data (i use full disk encryption from the first write whereever possible) over to anyone whom i don't want to share the data with, i'd always both null via software and (if the drive states to support it) do ATA SE also.01:21
zdorovoleftyfb: ok, the new dmesg output is at pastebin.com/y2yMhcYT01:24
coz_tom oh sorry I saw your post for secure wipe or delete01:24
zdorovoat the end of that paste, it looks like there's an error reading form the usb...01:24
bn_workhi, if I want to add a sudoers entry to allow user A to sudo -u as  user B to run a set of shell scripts under several dirs that fall under a common parent, where each shell script take java -D params which invoke a java app, do I need to white list the shell script(s), ie: /foo/bar/mysh * ?  or /usr/bin/java * ?  or both?01:25
sarnoldzdorovo: also around line 113201:25
leftyfbzdorovo: that's exactly it. SQUASHFS error. That's the live filesystem01:26
bn_work(man page for sudoers doesn't really specify and yes, edit it visudo :) )01:26
bn_works/edit it/edit it with/01:26
leftyfbzdorovo: it's either the USB or memory01:26
sarnoldmy guess is usb01:26
zdorovoleftyfb: hmmmm ok. Maybe I should rewrite the ISO onto the USB stick?01:27
leftyfbzdorovo: you can try01:27
sarnoldI'd also guess that memory stick is likely at the end of its useful life01:27
zdorovosarnold: It's brand new though :( unless Staples sold me a faulty USB stick....01:28
sarnoldzdorovo: hrm. double-check the iso checksum?01:28
bn_worksudoers 1.8.1601:28
sarnoldbn_work: just the scripts, not the things the scripts call01:29
zdorovosarnold: the md5sum is good01:30
bn_worksarnold: thanks, do I need to do anything once I create my entry?  ie: restart or SIGHUP some service?01:31
sarnoldbn_work: no, sudo will reread the file on every use01:31
bn_worksarnold: or does it immediately take effect?01:31
_Random_need some hardware(Gpu) help, my display keeps crashing. I get white screen with  lines on it. pc unusable when this happens, still under warrantty01:31
_Random_It's just happend again01:31
sarnoldzdorovo: hrm. I guess try re-writing it, but it might just be a bad stick :/01:31
_Random_I've ssh into the pc. I'd like to look at  my logs & see what errors there are. Not sure what to look for & what commands to use01:32
sarnold_Random_: dmesg, /var/log/X* -- there might be others, but I've only ever had intel graphics..01:33
_Random_thanks sarnold: :)01:33

user01hi is there a way to play an audio file on my laptop so that it streams to my linux computer across the room which is attached to speakers?01:34
bn_worksarnold: thanks.  is there a way to build off environment vars when specifying a fully-qualified path to the script?01:34
user01kinda like a chromecast i guess via wifi01:34
sarnoldbn_work: my guess is no; that'd probably be able to be abused somehow01:34
user01might have found something: https://superuser.com/questions/432894/pipe-system-sound-to-another-computer01:37
bn_worksarnold: what about brace expansion to specify various names, ie: /path/to/bin/{foo,bar} ?01:39
sarnolduser01: oh nice. I'd always heard that was the motivating factor behind pulseaudio but never seen anyone document how to do it. I wasn't sure it ever got written01:39
sarnoldbn_work: I don't think sudo supports alternations01:39
user01sarnold, yeah i would think that would be the whole point of needing a pulse layer would be to do clever things like that01:40
sarnolduser01: well, apparently alsa doesn't do multiplexing as well as one would like..01:41
tomreynzdorovo: balena etcher (etcher.io, there's also an apt repository, ask me for details if interested, since it's badly documented) is a cross-platform GUI application which writes creates bootable sticks from iso files, and does a verification run (to ensure data was written properly).01:41
bn_worktomreyn: that is the largest app I've seen just to format a USB stick,  a 200MB abomination of an electron (+ node JS) app, but hey at least it looks pretty :)01:43
RandolfThanks tomreyn, I'll take a look at those now.01:44
tomreynzdorovo: "f3" (apt install f3) helps you test that a flash stick is not reporting a different capacity than it physically has01:45
tomreynbn_work: i'm not a fan of electron either, but it seems to work reliably (can't say that about most other GUI utilities doing this sadly) and does a verification run, and works cross-platform. so it can be worth the 200 MB.01:47
tomreynif you have a good alternative covering all of this, i'll be all ears.01:47
RandolfHmm, looks like Qt5 issues are a bit of a problem with webcamoid.  According to something I read on GitHub there's an 8.5 version that resolves all of this, but apt only provides 8.1.01:48
sarnoldI have to imagine it'd be a few hundred lines of C or rust ..01:49
_Random_http://dpaste.com/3FTBXEC01:49
bn_worktomreyn: yeah, cross platform is nice, it's fairly simplistic in how it formats though, ie: only one partition per stick and it will clobber any existing partition(s) on it I believe01:49

gehnI tend to install latest versions of a few things, for example cmake, usually by hand by downloading binaries and just unzipping them and adding the resulting dir (or */bin dir) to my $PATH, is there a better way? like a package manager other than apt for things that aren't in standard ubuntu repos?02:12
gehnthere are apt repos for some things, like the ubuntu toolchain ppa for newer versions of GCC for example, but I don't think cmake has a ppa or an apt repo02:12
gehncmake is only one example of about a dozen various things like this that I use02:13
tomreynif there are no usable PPAs, a newer ubuntu release may help, or a chroot (or container, or VM) with a newer ubuntu release may help.02:14
tomreyngehn: ^02:14
gehncmake release far more often than new ubuntu releases02:14
gehnalso I chose ubuntu over Arch specifically because I prefer to usually stay on LTS for a while as upgrades tend to be time consuming02:15
tomreynthere also !snap for such use cases, but i suspect there are no snaps for software development tools like cmake.02:15
gehnand I like (mostly) stable versions of many things02:15
tomreynso containers are probably a good match.02:17
Mystified1234tomreyn: thanks this is random.  Ive installed both pkgs..02:17
tomreynMystified1234: and did it help?02:18
tomreynMystified1234: you installed them and rebooted, right?02:18
gehnI'm not going to run a container just for a new version of cmake02:18
gehnit's about a million times easier to just download the zip manually as I mentioned before02:18
gehnbut it's still a bit annoying and time consuming02:19
tomreynmaybe you need automation02:19
Mystified1234tomreyn: it's booted, as per normal, it can crash at any time..02:19
gehnI could probably automate it myself, but it's probably not worth it to me to use my time to do so02:19

mr_loublackflow, After lots of searching, I have come to the conclusion that my harddisk issue is an Ubuntu issue. So many online posts can't be wrong. It's a well known bug that has existed for ages.04:08
Randolfmr_lou: What are the symptoms?  (I'm curious to know if I'm experiencing it too.)04:11
_Random_hi guys, I have nvme disk, after upgrading bios. reset bios removed secure boot & fast boot, I'm back at grub, & fail to boot ubuntu, regardless if i'm in recovery or normall start, i drop to shell with initramfs04:12
_Random_ missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)04:12
_Random_i treied super grubdis to boot the os, same occurs with that04:13
_Random_blkid does not show any drive, obviously because I have nvme dride04:13
_Random_blkid does not show any drive, obviously because I have nvme drive04:13
mr_louHi Randolf. In this particular case, it's simply slow transfer speeds to an external USB device. Starts off fine, but then drops to insanely low speeds, like 1,5 mbps.04:17
mr_louRandolf, The same device works fine on Windows, maintains a high transfer speed.04:17
mr_louRandolf, There's like a million posts about this issue on various forums online.04:17
mr_louRandolf, It seems to be related to SSD / SD card / flash memory (in my case), while mechanical USB drives seems to work faster for some reason.04:19

Alpha-OmegaI don't see any option for LVM.04:40
bindithink you need the alternate installer for that04:42
bindiwell, not sure about desktop04:43
Alpha-Omegabindi: Makes no sense that they provide an option for LVM for wiping one of the disks, but you can't even select which disk, and if you do manual, won't give you the option...04:45
bindii just know that 18.04 server installer required the alternate installer for lvm :p04:46
Alpha-Omegabindi: I ended up creating it with gparted and LVM commands. If there is the ability to do it with the tools, why not provide the option... Not very inuitive for a user-friendly distro. Not to hate on Ubuntu, but Anaconda provides a nice way to set it up.05:03

gimpnixonHey everyone, Coming here to give a little update about a situation I was having. when I would start my system with startx for some reason my cursor would be invisable until I opened a terminal or a GUI window of some sort. couldnt figure it out for the longest and came here asking and didnt really find much info well i'm coming to you all to let you know that i've found a neat little work around if06:15
gimpnixonanyone ever has the same issue. YOu can add the line "xrdb -load ~/.Xresources" to your .xinitrc file and if your .Xresources file if configured corectly then this will make your mouse load at start up.06:16
gimpnixonI haven't testd it, but using the "source" commnad may also have the same effect. Cheers06:17

mr_loublackflow, Bug, issue, call it what you will. Poor performance compared to other OS even on the same PC. People all report the same thing: Decent speed at first, then slows insanely to 1,5 mbps. People reply about ram buffer and such, but this doesn't change that transfers are fine on Windows.07:14
mr_louPeople all report the same thing.07:15
mr_louAnd it seems to be related only to flash drives, SD cards, USB sticks, SSD harddisks etc.07:15
blackflowmr_lou: yeah but they report for the same drive model? anyway, without knowing in which subsystem the bug exists, it's still not absolute that it's Ubuntu (or more precisely the Linux kernel's) fault.07:16
blackflowdon't get me wrong, this ain't some blind defense of Ubuntu, it's pragmatical conclusion aimed at eliminating red herrings.07:17
blackflowgood luck for now, I have to flee the office, bbl in an hour or so07:17
* mr_lou is out too07:27
thsnri have definitely observed the same behavior under windows where a copy starts fast and slows down towards the end. you can also find many confirming reports for windows07:35
thsnrit just a question of when the actual syncing happens and how the reported speed is calculated07:35

pwuertzHi, is there a way to downgrade Nautilus in 19.04 to a previous version. Say, the one in 18.10?09:47
lotuspsychjepwuertz: downgrading packages is not how ubuntu works, whats your purpose exactly?09:47
BluesKajpwuertz, what's your real issue?09:48
MystifiedMy ubuntu dual boot was working untill i updated the bios.. now unable to boot, nor can identify the nvme drive, with any commands. so I can try to do a grub recovery09:48
Mystifiedwindows boots from grub09:48
pwuertzlotuspsychje, BluesKaj The real issue is that the latest Nautilus doesn't allow copy+paste file locations to other applications anymore. Like pasting a file path in any editor, terminal etc.09:49
BluesKajMystified, legacy bios or uefi ?09:50
pwuertzIt seems to be a known anti-feature since Nautilus 3.3009:51
lotuspsychjepwuertz: if you find a bug, or want a a wish you can file a !bug or affect on an existing bug. as user you have influence in the ubuntu community09:51

pwuertzlotuspsychje: It's a known anti-feature that was introduced ~9 months ago, bug reports are all there, but as far as I understood the gnome folks are not willing to change that behaviour. So I'm trying to downgrade to the last known working version.09:53
lotuspsychjepwuertz: as said before, downgrading is not how ubuntu works, if you want an earlier nautilus, try another ubuntu version09:54

MystifiedEriC^^: i thought it was a definite yes but know im not 100% sure10:51
Mystifiedas I stated I can't  see any nvme tools here10:52
EriC^^Mystified: i think something about the bios update screwed things up, maybe it set some default setting that doesnt allow ubuntu to see the nvme10:52
Mystifiedon the live iso10:52
EriC^^try to look for any settings that are related, or maybe roll back the bios update if possible10:52
Mystifiedif thats the case why is the live installer booting10:52
MystifiedI have noticed that I can stop fast boot10:53
EriC^^this is the same iso installer you used to install the first time right?10:53
EriC^^Mystified: cause it's not nvme10:53
Mystifiedyes10:53
Mystifiedbut new usb10:53
