03:59<DusXMT>Hello there, I've recently upgraded all of my machines from jessie to stretch, and while everything's mostly working great, on my laptop, where I have the Mate desktop installed, the brightness control no longer works; the little window indicating the brightness level appears when I press the brightness up/down buttons, but it remains on full brightness
04:03<awal1>,v xbacklight
04:03<judd>Package: xbacklight on amd64 -- wheezy: 1.1.2-1; jessie: 1.2.1-1; buster: 1.2.1-1+b2; sid: 1.2.1-1+b2; stretch: 1.2.1-1+b2
04:04<awal1>DusXMT, check if ^ works
04:04<DusXMT>That's quite odd, I just killed mate-power-manager and launched it in strace to see what would happen if I tried the brightness buttons, and somehow it worked...
04:06<awal1>good for you
04:06<DusXMT>not really, since I don't know why it doesn't work when started normally, eg. via alt-f2
04:07<awal1>i suggested you xbacklight for check where is the issue
04:07<awal1>if xbacklight wworks, then something in mate pm is problematic
04:07<DusXMT>I doubt that'd be too useful; I think it's a broken configuration, if anything
04:07<awal1>well, i dont use mate, so...

04:58<DusXMT>Dec 26 10:56:41 dooshki-portabook pkexec[4451]: dusan: Error executing command as another user: Not authorized [USER=root] [TTY=unknown] [CWD=/home/dusan] [COMMAND=/usr/sbin/mate-power-backlight-helper --set-brightness 1484]
04:58<somiaj>yea lots of desktops these days use logind + policykit (via systemd) to allow non root users to do certain thigns as root.
04:59<somiaj>I think this is partly done over dbus, in most cases this should just work, but maybe you have some issue with either dbus or policykit not recoginizing your user as a local user to evlate privlages to mess with the backlight in this case
05:08-!-cmacq2 [] has joined #debian
05:08-!-cmacq2 is "Johan Ouwerkerk" on #debian-next #debian-kde #debian
05:14<DusXMT>Okay, so if I do _not_ have /bin/ksh (as opposed to /bin/mksh) in /etc/shells, and I run the power manager with /bin/ksh -c 'unset SHELL; mate-power-manager' from the startup item, it works just fine...
05:15<DusXMT>(if I have it in /etc/shells, and/or if I use /bin/mksh as my shell, it gives me the "not authorized" error...)
05:16<DusXMT>Relying on the user's environment variables for authentication is a little bizzare though, the user can lie...
05:16<somiaj>I think it relys on more than that to determine if your a 'local user', but I'm not really sure on the details, I don't really use policykit on mysetup, still do things the old fashion way, as root.
05:17<DusXMT>Yeah, that's probably a wiser approach for a more security-critical system (having to go through proper authentication to do things as root, instead of having someone do things as root for you)
05:24<somiaj>well my user has full sudo privlages, it is just another way to control privlage escilation.
05:24<somiaj>problem is many users want automatic things that don't require configuration or typing, and there really wans't a nice way to make a button that requires escilation unless it was more automatic.
05:24<somiaj>which is where policykit comes into play
05:25<DusXMT>Yeah, convenience vs security, like always
05:25<DusXMT>(and yeah, sudo can mostly be used for the same thing with the rules, I prefer not to use sudo)
05:25<somiaj>or just know your root password, su -, worked fine for years and still does.
05:26<DusXMT>Well, at least I'm glad my backlight control works now :)
05:27<DusXMT>(reading documents in the dark on full brightness is quite straining)
05:27<somiaj>also with xorg moving to not using setuid by default, means more permsisions need to be properly configured.
05:28<somiaj>DusXMT: I think y ou can use xrandr as a normal user, but the brigntess via xrandr is not the samething as lower the backlight of the hardware
05:29<somiaj>I belive I just bound xrandr commands to my brightness buttons, achives the same affect, minus powersaving you may get from controling the actual hardware backlight.
05:29*DusXMT uses the battery as a UPS, more or less; this lappy has a hard drive, so it's not a good idea to operate it on the go
05:33<spuranon_>if anyone cares about my earlier issue with MAC address randomly changing, i've solved it. it seems that wifi scans, by default, cause the mac to reset to a random value for 'privacy' issues

05:33-!-neo is "realname" on #debian
05:34-!-neo is now known as Guest493
05:34<DusXMT>Now I wonder, is there a way to check for residual config files that aren't present on newer systems? eg. I found a file in /etc/udev/rules.d/ that prevented the new deterministic network names from coming into use
05:35<Guest493>how install customize gnome desktop?
05:35<Guest493>How to install fonts?
05:35<Guest493>windows fonts
05:35<somiaj>DusXMT: debconf does a good job about this when upgrading, it should rmove any old config files.
05:35<somiaj>DusXMT: that one is kept around because it is important, without it your network maynot come up next boot after an upgrade.
05:36<DusXMT>somiaj: Indeed, but now they're gone :)
05:36<Guest493>I can't hide windows
05:36<Guest493>there only one cross
05:36<somiaj>DusXMT: also it is considered a bug in a package to leave residual config files around, so this is thought about.
05:37<somiaj>DusXMT: sure, but if your configs are all talking about eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces and you took this config away on the upgrade, your network would nto come up because the interface changed its name, so it was best to keep it around.
05:37<somiaj>DusXMT: the difference is it isn't automatically created on new isntalls.
05:37<DusXMT>somiaj: Of course, by "now they're gone" I meant that I updated the network-related configs
05:38<DusXMT>I just wondered if there were other similar files that were lurking around
05:38<somiaj>Guest493: in the contrib repo (not default on debian) there is a package ttf-mscorefonts-installer that will download them from ms and install them
05:38<somiaj>DusXMT: there shouldn't be, as I said for the most part packages will clean this stuff up on upgrades.
05:38<DusXMT>Okay :)
05:38<somiaj>unless in rarce cases it is determined cleaning it up could cause a problem.
05:38<Guest493>somiaj, what does it means?
05:38<dpkg>[contrib] Debian packages that contain <DFSG>-compliant software, but have dependencies not in main (possibly packaged for Debian in non-free). To get contrib packages, add lines like "deb [stretch|buster|sid] main contrib" to your /etc/apt/sources.list, then «aptitude update». Also ask me about <non-free>, <contrib list>.
05:39<Guest493>contrib repo?
05:39<Guest493>what is it?
05:39<somiaj>Guest493: you may have to add 'contrib' to your sources.list, and then install the package ttf-mscorefonts-installer
05:39<Guest493>how add contrib? where my sources.list?
05:39<Guest493>I'm new in linux
05:39<somiaj>Guest493: -- debian main only includes DFSG free software. Microsofts fonts are not free in the DFSG sense, so you have to get them outisde of debian main
05:40<Guest493>recent have installed
05:40-!-hark [] has left #debian []
05:40<somiaj>Guest493: modify the file /etc/apt/sources.list, you should see a bunch of deb <webaddress> stretch main lines
05:40<somiaj>Guest493: at the end of each line instead of just having 'main', put 'main contrib'. If you also want access to non-free software put 'main contrib non-free'
05:40<somiaj>after you edit the file, run apt update, then you will have access to non-free software
05:42<Guest493>there 6 web addresses
05:43<somiaj>Guest493: if you want you can paste your sources.list at
05:44<Guest493>if I can
05:45<somiaj>You should really only have three lines, but if you have deb and deb-src lines this can be 6
05:46<Guest493>6 lines
05:46<Guest493>how coppy in command line? ctr+c doesn't work
05:48<Guest493>line has been added
05:48<somiaj>Guest493: do you also want access to non-free software?
05:48<Guest493>bash: aptitude: command not found
05:49<somiaj>Guest493: if using a terminal (like xterm) you can just select the text, it is automatically coppied, though you may have to use the middle button to paste it
05:49<Guest493>I'll install windows software
05:49<Guest493>there what I need have linux copy
05:49<somiaj>Guest493: aptitude is not installed by default on stretch, you can install it with 'apt install aptitude' or just use apt instead of aptitude.
05:49<Guest493>teamviewr, skype, sublime 3
05:49<Guest493>why not apt-get?
05:49<Guest493>apt-get is better?
05:50<DusXMT>Guest493: apt is a front-end to the apt- tools
05:50<DusXMT>It combines their functionality into one, and provides some bells and whistles
05:51<somiaj>Guest493: apt is a newer tool that is similar to apt-get. The main difference is apt-get is quite complex and is used in scripts so it cannot change how it does things. apt is more inteded for a user, won't have a stable abi, provides nicer output, stuff apt-get cannot do because apt-get is tied to important scripts
05:51<somiaj>Guest493: -- change your sources.list to that, see how I appeneded 'contrib non-free' to the end of the lines, after that run apt update, and you now have access to non-free software like ttf-mscorefonts-installer

05:58<DusXMT>And the issue is that you're using ubuntu repositories in your sources.list
05:58<DusXMT>That can cause all sorts of issues
05:58<Guest493>how they are installed there?
05:59<Guest493>I forgot how I added it
05:59<Guest493>I was installing php5
05:59<DusXMT>E: The repository ' bionic Release' does not have a Release file.
05:59<Guest493>and probably added them?
05:59<somiaj>!don't break debian

06:00<mingyang>debian8 has
06:00<somiaj>Guest493: second you have some how isntalled software for ubuntu on your system, this is very bad, and you should not do this. Do you have any files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
06:00<tt>"That can cause all sorts of issues" an understatement
06:00<somiaj>Guest493: stretch only has php7, jessie which is still supported has php5
06:04<Guest493>somiaj, php5
06:04<Guest493>php7 works badly
06:05<Guest493>not support all wp plugins, I need php5
06:05<somiaj>Guest493: then maybe jessie is a better choice for you. oldstable will be supported by the lts team for a few more years.
06:05<Guest493>I installed php5 using instruction for ubuntu
06:05<Guest493>somiaj, probably it added that repositories?
06:06<somiaj>Guest493: no you'll have to reinstall jessie from scratch, you can't just add jessie to the repos. Again read the don't break debian link
06:06<somiaj>Guest493: really read that link, don't install random stuff from ubuntu, you'll break things.
06:06<Guest493>and I can only use debian repos?

06:07<Guest493>why other repos can broken my system in debian and not in ubuntu? it's equal OS?
06:07<somiaj>Guest493: read that link. You can only use repos specificlly built for the version of debian you are running (not ubuntu). Mixing things not made for the system you are running is a good way to mix things.
06:08<somiaj>Guest493: no they are not, debian and ubuntu are quite different espically at the core and in terms of policy.
06:08<Guest493>core equal?
06:09<DusXMT>Also, installing random software from the internet is a bad idea; one of the strengths of GNU/Linux is the fact that all of the software is provided by a trusted repository, by a large group of maintainers who hold their reputation at stake if they put malicious software into the repository, not to mention that by the time it would reach stable it would've been without a doubt found
06:09<Guest493>what does mean core? kernel they have equal and will work the same app as well?
06:09<somiaj>Guest493: ubuntu due to having far less packages than debian relys a lot more on thrid party ppa's to provide software for it. Debian tries to provide all software from a single repo, the debian repo.
06:09<somiaj>Guest493: the core libaries, where fiels are put, how things are orginized, please read that link, I don't want repeate everything on it.

06:12<tt>Use what you like. But ubuntu is not in a different position. You'll have equal issues using Debian repos on Ubuntu. Read the link.
06:12<somiaj>Guest493: ubuntu has the same issue, don't expect to install any random .deb on the internet in ubuntu and have it work. Though there are more third party ppa's that create software specifcally for ubuntu, on the other hand, debian provides way more packages than ubuntu that are well tested and known to work together.

06:14<somiaj>Guest493: that is fine, take your time, if you choose to use debian, understanding you can't just mix random stuff and expect your system to work as designed is important (espically if you want a stable/secure server running php5)
06:15<somiaj>Guest493: note this is also the same for ubuntu, but as I said there are more thrid party people producing packages (of questionable quality) for ubuntu.
06:15<Guest493>well, I installed and will use all repose, and will see how it works
06:15<somiaj>Guest493: packages in debian are well tested and vetted, and that is partly why many choose debian.
06:16<Guest493>somiaj, I need only LAMP and node.js, and a few good linux apps such like screenshoret, translator, all others, I'll use windows apps
06:17<Guest493>skype, teamvier, sublime3,
06:17<Guest493>all apps has linux copy

06:18<starry>nice to meet you all
06:18<Guest493>all what I have in windows I can easy install in linux
06:18<somiaj>Guest493: but enough of this, we have tried to point you to the proper way to use debian, at this point you almost seem like you are here to troll us.
06:18<DusXMT>starry: Greetings :)
06:19<somiaj>Guest493: for example that error you pated was due to you mixign things, that wouldn'th ave happened if you stuck to only debian sources.
06:19<Guest493>somiaj, I want to use it like usual desktop OS
06:19<Guest493>somiaj, it's not suited for this?
06:19<starry>thanks DusXMT
06:19<somiaj>Guest493: I use debian as my desktop os just fine.
06:20*DusXMT uses 3 different flavors of debian as a "usual desktop OS", with Mate, XFCE, and IceWM (all on different computers), and all with debian's repositories :)
06:20<starry>I'm on buster now
06:20<Guest493>I thought debian is like ubuntu can install everything, and my friend say all linuxes are equal, only differ desktop
06:20<Guest493>can use any
06:20<somiaj>Guest493: but note, you need to make a choice of which linux distro suits your needs and then stick whith that. It could be ubuntu suits your needs better, and you are free to use it, we just won't support it.
06:20<DusXMT>Guest493: Your friend lies
06:21<somiaj>Guest493: they have similar software, but they are not equal, there are differences between the distros, which is why there are different distros. Differences range from policy to the packages and versions that are avilable for the distro.
06:21-!-ompaul [] has quit [Quit: and zebedee said its time for other stuff]
06:21<somiaj>starry: if looking for buster support, #debian-next is the prefered channel.
06:21<Guest493>somiaj, yes, ubuntu has big community, and in google many articles dedicated ubuntu
06:21<starry>thanks for your information somiaj
06:21<Guest493>easy can get support, debian has less articles
06:21<somiaj>Guest493: Do you think you can install a windows .exe on ubuntu?
06:21<DusXMT>Guest493: Perpahs the Ubuntu family of distros are all the same with a different desktop (eg' xubuntu, edubuntu, lubuntu, etc.), but if you eg. compare Ubuntu with eg. Gentoo or Arch or Fedora, the system is completely different
06:22<somiaj>Guest493: do you expect to be able to install a macosX package on windows?
06:22<starry>what torrent is good on debian ?
06:22<DusXMT>But Gentoo, Arch, Fedora, Ubuntu and Debian can all have the same desktop :)
06:22<Guest493>somiaj, only if apps has linux copy, wine works bad, better don't install it
06:22<DusXMT>So it's exactly the other way around than what your friend said

06:23<somiaj>Guest493: anyways, think of it that way, in the linux world there is a lot more overlap due to open source and building on the shoulders of giants, but really don't expect that something made for ubuntu can just be installed on debian or visa versa (turns out it maybe possible, but really there are better ways to do stuff like this, compile it from source code)
06:23<Guest493>somiaj, all apps that I'm using has linux copy

06:23<somiaj>Guest493: this is a common issue that people new to debian (and debian based distros) should learn, the precompiled binaries are built for a very speciifc system and may not work on a similar system.
06:24<Guest493>somiaj, ok I understood, and this is rarely when it can broken system?
06:26<somiaj>Guest493: I see people with broken systems in here all the time due to mixing, which usually results in us suggesting they backup and reinstall
06:26<somiaj>sure some get away with this, even for years until it bites them.
06:26<Guest493>I used ubuntu one and installed many apps from differ repos and everything was worked well
06:26<somiaj>the more you know about linux, the longer you maybe able to get away with it, but there are far better ways to get software into debian that isn't provided by the repos than download it from ubuntu.
06:26<Guest493>somiaj, see I can use ubuntu too and I'll know about linux more?
06:27<somiaj>Guest493: as I said, how ubuntu is setup (much less packages than debian), it has a third party set of people provided software specifically for ubuntu.
06:27<Guest493>as well as I'll use debian?
06:27<somiaj>Guest493: correct, you can have multiple vms, with different distros to figure out which one suites your needs, or have them used for different purposes.
06:28<somiaj>Guest493: just if you mix we won't support you and we only support #debian -- also think that part of what you get when choosinga distro is the support community. Debian has a good support community to help users, but we only support users using debian (and not mixing)
06:28<somiaj>we don't support any based off of debian distros.
06:28<Guest493>somiaj, ok, you think that apps that I installed form ppa I installed from repos specially made for ubuntu and thus it works? If I do this for debian it won't work well?
06:28<somiaj>Guest493: correct, ppa apps are designed for ubuntu, so if using ubuntu they will work.
06:28<Guest493>somiaj, I've understood your main message
06:29<Guest493>somiaj, it's not good
06:29<somiaj>Guest493: debian to me has a much higher quality of testing and packages than ppa's will (note ubuntu's core is high quality, but the ppa's not so mcuh)
06:29<Guest493>better use probably ubuntu, it will give more possibilities for desktop and for to correct issues...
06:29<somiaj>debian's packages are well tested and known to work well together.
06:30<DusXMT>Also, the ppa's are maintained by random people (the short means "personal package archive"), there's no one preventing those people from putting malware into the packages
06:30<somiaj>Guest493: you have to make that choice of what works best for you.
06:30-!-acald3ron [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
06:30<Guest493>somiaj, yes well tested, but if I have toroubles and I google I'will find only instructions for ubuntu that will works

06:33<somiaj>alos there is a lot of bad advise on the internet on using debian, that don't break debian link boils down thigns you sould look for.
06:34<somiaj>Guest493: I use ubunuts forms and guides a lot, but I also have to sometimes adjust things. It really depends. For example apache, really outside of the fact you should install this form our distros repos, configuring ti wont' matter if you are ubuntu or debian.
06:35<Guest493>yes, apache there equal

06:36<Guest493>probaly can in minority cases
06:36<somiaj>if you use third party packages you are at the mercy of the person who built them to ensure they work well with debian.
06:36<somiaj>in many cases if the software packages are good enough quality to be in debian, they are already in debian.

06:40<somiaj>Guest493: it is possible to make a .deb that can work in both debian and ubuntu, but thrid parties do this to varring success. And sometimes what they do is make a ubuntu deb and pretend it works in debian without testing it.
06:40<somiaj>but when using third party software, you are dont' hav the debian team testing them to ensure it works well in debian, so it really dependson the software

06:43<somiaj>Guest493: but when learning, it is best to get use to how debian works and how to do thigns the 'debian way', and so I would try to stick only to debian software as much as possible, as you become a more advanced user, you can do more
06:43<somiaj>Guest493: the debian repos will provide what you need for LAMP. If you need php5 (not 7) use jessie, not stretch.

07:00<somiaj>Guest493: yes, jessie is debian-8. If you are using this on a desktop, that method seems sane to me. Just watch what thrid party repos install, if they start installing a lot of libs, try to see if the ones from debian will work.
07:01<Guest493>ok, will do soon, install dual boot, 20 GB probably enough for debian
07:01<Guest493>or 30
07:03<somiaj>Guest493: another thing you could do is run a small jessie vm inside of debian (linux has good virtualization for linux guests), and install jessie there, and just run your LAMP server on a vm, and not on your main desktop.

10:18<jhutchins>This is true of RPM packages as well, it's often possible to install them on a distribution other than the one they were built for,
10:19<jhutchins>What tends to happen though is that the versioning is off from the native distro, and as updates trickle through, your system starts to diverge from the official structure, until eventually you have unresolvable differences and end up having to do a clean install.
10:20<jhutchins>Woof, stuck in the scrollback again, sorry.

11:21<dbb>in other words, for every package in that PPA, retrieve the line that shows the VCS repo, and for the git ones, clone them..
11:22<dbb>.. just to build a data set.. of course it is optional.. but I have some further experiements in the back of my head

15:15<somiaj>what version of debian do you run?
15:15<somiaj>what is the bug
15:16<yetoo>It's stable, and it's the greeter for lightdm,
15:16<yetoo>Do i report the buf for gir1.2-lightdm-1
15:16<yetoo>or lightdm,
15:17<yetoo>because i've been lurking and found that the lightdm package isn't part of the greeter
15:17<yetoo>i have debian 9 by the way
15:17-!-MoDaX [foobar@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:17<yetoo>The bug is essentailly just missaligned text entry for username and password at the lightdm greeter
15:18<somiaj>I'm unsure there, but I think the matainer could reassign it if you reported it in the wrong place.
15:18<yetoo>Alright, thanks.
15:18<somiaj>Note stretch is frozen, so it might be worth seeing if this bug is still in testing/unstable or has been fixed, I would look through bug reports frist
15:19<yetoo>I did, if I reported the bug while in stable would it have merit to be fixed in unstable or would I need to make another report for unstable
15:20<somiaj>it would have merit, but only if the matainer can also reproduce it in their system on unstable
15:20<tt>yetoo: bug reports are going to be most helpful against unstable, unless they've quite severe or security related.

16:21<jonny>I was suspect of my inexpeirence but nevertheless I was annoyed
16:21<somiaj>jonny: in some sense yes. Note many chipsets already have firmware on them or priproty software running on the chip. In this case this software is provided via a seperate file that the chip loads into its memeory to fully function as opposed to being flashed on the chip. One advantage of this is the manufacture can create new firmware to fix bugs and users don't have to flash their chips.

16:22<somiaj>jonny: there are many who only support hardawre that is fully open, but note not having a firmware file doesn't always mean fully open, since there could be proprity stuff already programed on the chip.
16:23<somiaj>if you want fully open hardware you do have to be really picky, as most hardware has some non-free firmware component flashed onto it.
16:23<jonny>somiaj: that is very interesting. Are there any open source hardware regarding graphic cards?
16:24<tt>Not really, no. That and the radio are usually the sticking points for totally-free single-board-computers and phones.
16:24<somiaj>intel is close in that it doesn't require any non-free firmware in the linux kernel, but unsure about the actual firmware on the chip
16:25<tt>Intel is a decent open-source citizen and supports the linux driver, though.
16:25<somiaj>yea, in many places it may be illegal to use open firmware for wifi cards, due to regulations on radio transmitions, one is not always legally allowed to change frequences/channels/power
16:26<jonny>Interesting, thanks guys. I've learnt something there.

16:26<somiaj>But there is a grey line, openWRT gets away with it by basically just refusing to tell people how to modify those settings using the open platform, and has been able to provide open firmware for wireless routers
16:26<jonny>Linux is a hard platform for newbs who have been used to Windows.
16:26<jonny>frustrating at times
16:27<somiaj>(and they aren't really settings, they are hard codeded into the firmware)

16:27<somiaj>and if your bios/uefi firmware is not open, most of teh rest is moot anyawys
16:28<tt>and then there's the whole intel AMT thing
16:28<tt>you can't trust your hardware, it's a sad truth
16:28<tt>accept it, or stop using computers.
16:28<somiaj>but there is hardware out there that runs on fully open bios firmware, and wifi cards you can install open firmware on, so if you are extremly picky you can use a fully open laptop.
16:29<somiaj>oh yea the cpu, s/fully/most fully/
16:29<amacater>You may not need realtek firmware for that realtek hardware: the generic drivers often work well for Ethernet. Wifi, on the other hand, almost always requires firmware.
16:30<somiaj>amacater: the r8168 is one of the rare wired ones that needs firmware, and seems jonny is having issues not having it installed.
16:30<jonny>amacater: My internet does work and is fast enough but sometimes I get slow bursts and reconnecting the internet brings the speed back ?
16:30<somiaj>though I'm unsure exactly what the firmware does.
16:30<jonny>somiaj: probably sells my personal data hehe
16:30<tt>if the card works w/o it, presumably it's a bugfix upgrade to it?
16:30<jonny>yeah i reckon
16:30<jonny>sounds likea bugfix is in order at times with my connection stability
16:31<tt>some cards have (a static version of) firmware onboard, some do not
16:31<somiaj>In this case I wouldn't worry to much about the firmware as it is from realtek and built for your card. And if you are worried, get a different card.

16:31<jonny>true somiaj
16:31<somiaj>as mentioned you have non-free compents through out your system from your hardware manafactures.
16:32<yetoo>I sent my bug report with gmail, do would I need to modify it in any way to allow pgp or should it just send by default

16:35<yetoo>No, I sent it with reportbug, but I was just wonder if you need to set something in gmail since the email had to go through the provider one way or another
16:35<somiaj>yetoo: is your system properly setup to send email, maybe that is the issue, it was never actually sent due to your isp blocking port 25
16:35-!-galex-713__ [~galex-713@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

16:38<jonny>somiaj: is rather old (2016) but because I don't have non-free in my sources.list would i still not have non-free installed for my r8169?
16:38<somiaj>dbb: clarify what you mean.
16:38<dbb>straight from an old-style "mail transport agent" or whatever.. or, is it just a POP/IMAP client
16:38<somiaj>jonny: get the package for the kernel you run, that is the stretch package, if running stretch use that.
16:38<dbb>I forget the mail transport termology .. but classic networking is a peer transport agent iir
16:38<somiaj>dbb: you can set up your local mail server exim to send mails through gmail, after that you can use any client you want on your machine to send emails.
16:39<dbb>somiaj: using IMAP ?
16:39<jonny>thanks somiaj
16:39<somiaj>dbb: SMTPS I belive
16:39<dbb>oh intersting.. thx
16:39<somiaj>dbb: most isps only block SMTP, so one can usually use SMTPS, and then relay it through gmail
16:40<dbb> I have not tried this for years...
16:40<somiaj>you would have to use IMAP or POP3 (not sure if gmail supports both or not) to retrive emails
16:41<dbb>ok - that is what I would expect.. not a true peer
16:41<dbb>mail was abused :-((
16:41<yetoo>So, I just copy the body of the text file generated by reportbug and omit all the metadata and the bug tracker will accept that?

16:43<somiaj>jonny: if you downloaded that deb, 'dpkg -i filename.deb'
16:43<somiaj>jonny: 'apt install firmware-realtek' would require you add non-free to your sources.list
16:43<yetoo>like the information about the email protocol and other stuff of the caliber
16:44<jonny>somiaj: Thanks! I've added it to my sources.list and will take it off after i installed it.

18:26<mnuhmnuh>esmtp, msmtp, ssmtp
18:27<jelly>it does now and has for a while (at least since wheezy)
18:28<mnuhmnuh>exim can be told to use user's isp's mail server as "smarthost" exclusively.

18:47<jelly>yetoo, the should be your google email address
18:47<tt>%40 is an encoded @ sign
18:47<jelly>@ replaced with %40 because you can't have two @ signs in an URI.
18:47<tt>heh apparently I just told dselect to do something.
18:48<jelly>dselect, forget 40
18:48<dselect>jelly: i didn't have anything called '40' to forget
18:48<tt>it refused me :)
18:48<jelly>good thing it wasn't %70

19:21<doctor>hi hello, I have one problem file-roller or archive manager as it is called will not work with .rar files, I reinstalled p7zip and file roller but it cannot see inside the .rar
19:26<somiaj>might depend on the .rar file, but there is a rar and unrar from nonfree which may access more .rar files than the rar-free or unrar-free counter park
19:26-!-kcaj [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

19:27-!-kcaj is "kcaj" on #linode-beta #linode #debian-mirrors #debian-bugs #debian
19:27<somiaj>it means the software doesn't meet debian's free software guidliness (DFSG) and is in a seperate non-free repo.
19:27<dpkg>[non-free] a component which contains software that does not comply with the <DFSG>. To add non-free packages to your packages index, ask me about <non-free sources>. To see which non-free packages are installed ask me about <non-free list>. For the non-free tracking system, see
19:27<somiaj>in this case it is license info about what one can do with the software.
19:28<somiaj>but rar-free and unrar-free might also be enough
19:28<mnuhmnuh>doctor: if you're not a debian dev, you needn't worry about it, just use it if/when necessary.

19:31<doctor>yes I just needed to know if there was anything I was missing for .rar files since I just installed debian
19:31<somiaj>well according to the description you have to register rar and unrar after 30 days of use as it is 'shareware'
19:34<mnuhmnuh>ah. that's when user does need to think twice about using it.

If I try to do all 68 pages it starts to print after some time then stops and prints ERROR: ioerror -- is there something that needs to be configured so that it buffers or something a document that must be exceeding the internal memory of the printer? My best guess anyway . . .
