I'm trying to use this code from webupd8 to fix the problem I have. It seems it didn't work.

sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/smplayer_0.6.9+svn3595-1ppa1~maverick1_i386.deb

Here is the output from my attempt to install dockbar :

$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all var/apt/cache/archives/dockmanager_0.1.0~bzr80-0ubuntu1~10.10~dockers1_i386.deb
 dpkg: error processing var/apt/cache/archives/dockmanager_0.1.0~bzr80-0ubuntu1~10.10~dockers1_i386.deb
 (--install):  cannot access archive:
 No such file or directory Errors were encountered while processing: 

Is there any way around this?

  1. sudo apt-get -f install
  2. sudo dpkg -i --force-all /var/cache/apt/archives/dockmanager_0.1.0~bzr80-0ubuntu1~10.10~dockers1_i386.deb
  3. sudo apt-get -f install

At the very least (of what seems to be a highly hacky "fix" in the first place), you're missing a / before var in your path.

But as I say in my comment, we need to know what you're trying to do to give you informed advice.
