I'M SO MAD WITH THE SKIN SPAM.
WHY DOES ASKUBUNTU HAS TO BE A DUTY FREE WEBSITE. I just don't get it.
half of our spam is about skin products.
@NathanOsman I feel old too O_O
WHY CANT STAFF HELP US.
Here's how spam bots are used. Scripted, single use USELESS USERS.

YES. Execpt @SmokeDetector You're okay.
 
what about @WolfBot?
 
He's alright too.
BUT SERIOSLY
 
What about George?

All bots that do not post skincare posts are okay.
BUT SERIOUSLY
 
Gotcha.

We are doing something.
We're flagging and deleting them :D

Q: Error permission denied through ssh

Waqas Ranai have connected to bastion-staging (ftp server-name) through SSH from local machine. I have get root access through sudo bash. Now I am trying to SSH from bastion-staging (myserver-name) to ecash (another-server). But when I run: ssh root@ecash I get an error: WARNING: UNPROTECTED PRIVA...

 
surely there is a dupe for this? askubuntu.com/review/first-posts/622576
 
well that one has no upvoted/accepted answers so won't do... I'll just leave a WHYT comment as it is unclear...
 
@Zanna I say too broad.
Way too broad.
 
thanks, voted :)
I just got through like 5 first posts in review without skipping any of them... that must be a record...
 
7:30 AM
I will fix things.
There. That's better.
 
Wut
 
I moved those extra messages to the other room.
 
Good morning.
 
morning byte :D
is there a good dupe for this? the answer is horribly wrong... askubuntu.com/questions/360411/…
 
8:17 AM
Easy rep for Bash experts, proof-read my function please: askubuntu.com/q/830218/367990
 
I know nothing, but what's that backtick?
 
It's the original command's left quotation mark in the type output.
$ type nano
nano is aliased to `nano -AESWmi -T4'
 
@Seth scraper is almost working ---^
The first message is a false positive, though :(
 
8:35 AM
I know nothing, really, but maybe you want sed -E 's/^.*(.*).*$/\1/' ` it seems to work, but if I test on some other thing, there are some chars getting eaten as it is?
 
That can't really work.
There are no delimiters where the captured group starts and ends?
 
I thought you want everything after `
but idk
 
Everything in between ` and '
 
ah!
obvs
 
But I didn't manage to escape ' correctly so that Bash doesn't take it as quote, and I know it must be the last character in the line, so I simply used .$
 
8:39 AM
makes sense! that is smart
 
not smart, just cheating...
which on the other hand is also smart again...
 
there is a really crazy looking post somewhere about escaping some quotes...
 
Well, no matter how many backslashes I threw at the single quote, it had no effect...
 
I know how you feel, for some reason I couldn't fathom, I ended up doing something similar when trying to escape two double quotes together
 
fathom... learned a new word ^_^
 
8:50 AM
lol :)
 
@ByteCommander when asking for help improving your code, you should explain what the code does, and what you need it to do.
 
@terdon I did that, didn't I?
 
What is the sed command doing? I can figure it out, but it would be better if you explained it.
 
But I'm currently considering to convert my question here on AU into a self-answered Q&A "How can I run user aliases with sudo", because I just crossposted it on codereview...
Or shouldn't I?
 
Oh. Well, I'd consider it on topic here, why not? it would be even better on U&L but it's also on topic here.
 
9:02 AM
Just saw that its score went up to 3, would such a substantial edit still be acceptable?
 
That's a nice function by the way, useful idea.
@ByteCommander Substantial edit?
Ah.

But I'm currently considering to convert my question here on AU into a self-answered Q&A "How can I run user aliases with sudo", because I just crossposted it on codereview...
 
Um.
shrugs
 
haha you can keep my upvote anyways
 
Up to you. There are no answers yet, so. . .
 
9:03 AM
ok
 
By the way, @ByteCommander, your function doesn't actually run sudo commands for the non-aliased ones
The sudo isn't in $@:
$ function foo(){ echo $@; }
$ foo bar
bar
You want /sbin/sudo "$@"
 
Yay! WolfBot's detection is working!
 
@terdon Oh, right! But isn't it /usr/bin/sudo?
 
And really well, too. Still some FPs, but it is better
 
@ByteCommander Is it? It's in /sbin on Arch and used to be in /sbin everywhere AFAIK
You could also just run \sudo "$@" to get the system one instead of your function
 
9:11 AM
it's definitely /usr/bin/sudo here
 
$ type sudo
sudo is /usr/bin/sudo
 
Ah, yeah, /sbin has become a link to /usr/bin on many systems. Including mine, actually
$ type sudo
sudo is /sbin/sudo
$ ls -ld /sbin
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Sep 30  2015 /sbin -> usr/bin

Q: error permission denied (publickey , keyboard-interactive) through ssh (scp) between linux

Waqas Ranai am connected from bastion(server-name) to another server (ecash) through ssh via key pair. i have to copy file htdocs from ecash server to bastion server. i am running command scp source_user@source_remote_host:/usr/bin/mysql_backup.sh \ target_user@target_remote_host:/var/tmp/ ...

 
@UbuntuQuestionsonU&L Seriously? Not even a single correct tag!?
 
hahaha
 
9:13 AM
I can use command sudo.
 
@ByteCommander Same thing, yes. I prefer \sudo since it's shorter. I think I have an answer about this somewhere.
44
A: How can I run original command that aliased with same name?

terdonYou can bypass aliases by the following methods: the full pathname of the command: /bin/ls command substitution: $(which ls) the command builtin: command ls double quotation marks: "ls" single quotation marks: 'ls' a backslash character: \ls

 
Oh, heemayl gold-dupe-closed my question... askubuntu.com/q/830218/367990
 
lol now you can't answer your own Q
 
Oh wow, I'd completely forgotten the space trick. That's much cleaner than using a function.
It's correctly closed, it is a dupe. And the dupe has a better solution :)
 
I still posted my original solution to the dupe question :) askubuntu.com/a/830239/367990
 
9:21 AM
@Zanna woah python answer. bringing out the big guns i see
 
haha that answer is so simple
thanks for the upgoat
oh that post has a lot of answers now
 
@ByteCommander and a +1 from me too. I also quoted the "$@" which is needed, for example, if your command has a space in its path. Have a look at the answers here: unix.stackexchange.com/q/251103/22222
 
I saw your edit, thanks. :)
@terdon You want to comment that on codereview as well? Or shall I just edit it in there?
 
Hmm. Gimme a sec, I'll post an answer. I've never posted on code review before.
 
sure, take your time
As I won't use my function any more anyway, now that I know about alias sudo='sudo ', there is no need to hurry :)
 
9:53 AM
OK, answer posted. I found some more issues that need fixing. In all, I really don't think that function is a good idea after all.
I'm pretty sure my improved version can also break on some complex cases.
 
10:04 AM
@Zanna did he start yet? >:-D
 
10:17 AM
who?
 
10:40 AM
@Zanna serg :=)
 
lol afaik he's asleep now... he & I don't overlap very much timezone-wise
 
@Rinzwind on the filesystem indicator? yeah he started
 
good
so we can now confirm we got us a coding slave @zanna :=D
 
Does this review also look incorrectly rendered (images overlapping) for you? askubuntu.com/review/reopen/622597
 
@ByteCommander yeah i saw that. it bothered me too lol
 
10:41 AM
If so, I'll file a bug on MSE
 
nope looks good for ma
 
huh, interesting
 
I just tested it in a virgin firefox profile without any addons or customizations.
@Rinzwind Use side-by-side, not inline
 
ah
 
10:43 AM
Same error then?
 
@Rinzwind there was a post earlier where @Zacharee1 commented "we don't write programs for you" and I was like um...
 
heading to MSE, reporting bug
 
well error error error :P
overlap yes >:)
 
@ByteCommander Looks fine on chromium:
 
poor Zacharee1
 
10:44 AM
Ugh, wrong screenshot but yeah, mine looks like Rinzwind's
 
@terdon try side-by-side instead of side-by-side markdown
 
@terdon side-by-side, not side-by-side markdown
I just tested it in Chromium with a temp profile, looks the same.
 
Yeah, yeah, noticed. See previous comment
 
mine was FF49
 
and mine was wrong. Again. Sorry @edwinksl and @ByteCommander, you're quite right, it's also broken for me in side-by-side. Works fine in inline
 
10:45 AM
and wtf review under 200 <3
 
Same bug seems to have been reported a year ago... meta.stackexchange.com/q/260325/280883
Filing a new one anyway.
 
made it go down 5 >:)
 
@ByteCommander Why? Just upvote the existing one. Yours will only be closed as a dupe
 
But it's a year old.
 
Yes, but it's still the same bug
 
10:48 AM
hi everyone
quick one
 
hi 1
make it slow and lets cherish it
 
I've installed a raspbian on a sd card
 
Well, then let them close it. Maybe it gets the attention it needs this way, finally.
 
issue is now I want to remove the raspbian

the sd card is not seen
how come?

Q: Images in reopen review (side-by-side view) are larger than column width

Byte CommanderI was reviewing this item from Ask Ubuntu's reopen queue and noticed that the side-by-side view is rendered incorrectly. The images are too large, the one in the left column overlaps with the right column and the one in the right column extends into the sidebar. This behaviour has been confi...

 
11:07 AM
@ByteCommander OK, I voted to close. It really isn't a very urgent bug.
But here, have an upvote as well before the meta.se posse falls on you.
 
Thanks. They stab me often enough ;)
Let's see what happens to this 2 years old bug...
Should be fixable within less than 5 minutes actually.
 
It really isn't very useful to post the same bug report again though. It just clutters the site and makes it harder for the devs to track existing bugs. I don't understand why you chose to post it knowing it was a dupe.
 
If a bug report is two years old and got that low attention, it is likely to be forgotten, I think.
Not sure if that extra poke will help, but at least I tried.
 
Upvote it, bounty it. Post a new answer on the old bug report. All of these would bring it back to the front page.
 
bountying a bug report...
seems useless to me as the only ones who would deserve the bounty are those who fix the bug, which are the devs who have no real use for the points anyway.
 
11:15 AM
tbh using the SE format to do bug reports seems odd to me
 
Sure it raises attention, but... still wasting points.
And I couldn't state that I have too many points over on MSE.

Damn, just read your answer on that boot to ram question @ByteCommander. Very nice! I won't upvote since you've already hit the repcap. Remind me tomorrow, that's a great answer.
 
Actually, this is the best time to vote him up.
 
@terdon you could bounty the question :)
 
@terdon With pleasure :)

I want to rile him up. So yes.

You're saying you go to university now?
I thought you were older.
 
I am still a student at heart.
 
@ByteCommander depends how conscientious a student you are...
 
Well... In my late high school years I was lazy as hell...
Let's see how that works out at the university.
Probably not so well, I fear.
 
ah, there is a lurker
 
12:05 PM
@ByteCommander I was terrible in school, disastrous in 6th form college, slightly better in uni1, absolute model student in uni2 and uni3
 
I was a teacher's pet until I woke up and realized my childhood is almost over around grade 8... Since then I'm lazy. ^_^
Probably the other way round would have been better.
 
I used to get annoyed at the ever so keen mature students at Uni, I would definitely be one of those now.
 
yeah... at some point you realise that stuff is what you make of it...

@Zanna I'm not yet evolved into a full goody two shoes, but definitely commit to things more. If I can't really be bothered with something, I just don't do it.

Q: Please don't mark as dupe without reading the full question!

Android DevI saw this in review: http://askubuntu.com/review/close/622277 That is not a dupe of the suggested question, because the OP's specific question is not answered: Can Ubuntu install successfully to EMMC storage? Please read the full question before marking as dupe!

 
@edwinksl so true
 
that hover text xD
 
@AskUbuntuMeta uh oh I may be guilty on that one
Hmm I don't think eMMC has anything to do with it tbh
 
I'm innocent.
 
2:31 PM
That's not the cause of my issues anyway
I should retract?
I read the Q, but that's what we usually do with Qs that are like "will Ubuntu run on my specific toaster?"
Comment: try a live session && Action: close as dupe
 
@Zanna is there evidence ubuntu generally can't install to emmc without doing special tricks?
i can't seem to find any such evidence
 
I don't think there's anything special about it, although I don't understand such things. My eMMC plays very nice
I have to do tricks because broadcom

Weren't we all once...
 
@Zanna I know, and I don't want to jump on people, but having 777 on a webserver is REALLY bad.
 
when would one even use 777?
 
@AndroidDev why are these terrible tutorials floating around everywhere???
/tmp has 777
But also the sticky bit
So 1777
Why has London run out of chocolate flavour kale chips? This has been going on for weeks and my patience is running out...
 
@Zanna I don't know. But that tutorial needs to be taken down or edited immediately.

That last comment is bordering on unnecessary meanness.
 
Haha brilliant :) they obviously have a sense of humour, #1 requirement for dealing with other people in professional context anywhere ever
