XDG_RUNTIME_DIR warning with source id's not beeing found

ws flag

The Problem:

Hello, I've been trying to set up Ubuntu(22.04 LTS) as a second system on my main computer(the first OS being Windows). I've followed Tecno Tim's guide on setting up dual boot and the linux os is beeing installed on a 1TB Toshiba hard drive(video link: I followed the video in its entirety, but my Ubuntu installation just doesn't install(I ran it for 8 hours),It is stuck in

ext4 file system for partition #3 of SCSI2 (0,0,0)(sdb)

the warning that it gives is this:

XDG_RUNTIME_DIR (/run/user/999) is not owned by us (uid 0), but by uid 999

Following that I get Source Id errors:

/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/frontend/gtk_components/ Warning: Source ID 16192 was not found when attempting to remove it

Keep in mind they don't abrupt the installation, It just keeps going for a really long time

What I've Tried

  • Deleting all partitions on the drive
  • Editing grub settings with nano
  • Creating partitions myself
  • Installing with and without internet
  • Disabled fast and secure boot

Recent update

As of right now I saw this message:

(EE) event5 - Logitech Gaming Keyboard G213: client bug: event processing lagging behind by 28ms, your system is too slow

So it is installing 3-rd party driver

The solution was rather simple, take out a hard drive that has windows installed on it, so that your other drive that you want to install linux on will be first, then install linux, and after that connect the drive. That should solve your issue.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
