Ubuntu 23.04 - Lunar Lobster 🌕🦞
I just upgraded my main workstation from Ubuntu 22.10 to 23.04 (Lunar Lobster). While the process itself was pretty seamless, I hit a few minor bumps afterwards. Here I am collecting the issues as they happen, alongside their solutions:
- Firefox+1Password integration
pipexternally managed environment “error”
zsys error during
After the upgrade, I started seeing this error when running
ERROR couldn't connect to zsys daemon: connection error: desc = "transport: Error while dialing dial unix /run/zsysd.sock: connect: no such file or directory" #
The only solution I found was to uninstall and reinstall
That did the trick! 🎉
sudo apt remove zsys sudo apt install zsys
Note: I was unable to reproduce this on my laptop.
I found this issue already in 22.04, where the only solution was to switch from the snap to the apt installation of Firefox. As the upgrade reverted that, by re-installing the snap version of the browser, the issue happened again.
You can find this bug on Launchpad, and the solution in this post from last year.
pip externally managed environment “error”
This is not really an error, but a new policy being enforced by Ubuntu to avoid breaking the system installation. To be fair, the writing was on the wall that this was coming. I believe it will push people to handle Python packages more appropriately. I also found a nice post on GitHub with some related details!
Steam library resets to default
On my workstation, I store Steam games on a different internal HDD from the root. Weirdly so, the library setup reset to default. No worries though, adding the other folder back restored all the games in the blink of an eye!
After upgrading, my bluetooth earbuds (WF-1000XM4) do not connect to my laptop anymore. Funnily so, the laptop thinks it has actually connected, but as soon as you exit the bluetooth page and go to the sound settings, it realizes the mistake.
Removing all devices I had connected via bluetooth before the upgrade, and then connecting them again fixed the issue :tada:
Nothing else so far. I will update this post with more news as they come 📰
