During the migration from the Qt 5 Beta to the Qt 5 Release, the packaging changed significantly. This means upgrading the SDK is not a trivial task such as sudo apt-get upgrade, and a few manual steps are necessary. Migration: from the Qt 5 Beta 1 to Qt 5.0 Open the ~/.bashrc file $ gedit ~/.bashrc Remove the 'export PATH=/opt/qt5/bin:$PATH' line from ...

Download VirtualGL (.deb) from: http://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualgl/files/VirtualGL/ Navigate to the folder containing the deb package and install it with: sudo dpkg -i VirtualGL_*.deb Run glxspheres: cd /opt/VirtualGL/bin/ ./glxspheres OR /opt/VirtualGL/bin/glxspheres

Yes, of course, not only you can, but Ubuntu is always short on Wubi testers, you are encouraged to try it. You will find the wubi installer inside the testing iso of development Ubuntu versions. For 12.04, you need to download an iso from here. You will find wubi.exe inside it.

If you can find it in Software Center, then great! Just click uninstall! Otherwise, you way look for it in Synaptic, in search bar steam. Finally, if none of these work, try typing sudo apt-get remove steam. If none of these work, you can remove most of its files by pressing CTRL-H in your home folder and deleting the .steam directory.

Try with update-manager -d and find out if you see an Upgrade button. Or run System Monitor and check out the System tab and read the text under Ubuntu. If there shows Release 12.04 (precise) 32-bit you are out of beta. Enjoy the new LTS release and have fun with Ubuntu ;)

Depends on what you expect from the beta. If you are assisting with development or bug reports, you will want to update daily. If you are expecting "stability" from the beta, you need to "do your homework" before upgrading. This includes looking at launchpad for recent bug reports, reading any release notes (when the beta 2 , alpha, etc are released), and ...

In case the step 4. does not remove all the packages from the qt5-beta1 PPA the line helped me to clean up was this: $ grep ^Package: /var/lib/apt/lists/ppa.launchpad.net*sdk*Packages /var/lib/apt/lists/ppa.launchpad.net*qt5-beta1*Packages |awk '{print $2}'|xargs sudo apt-get -y remove You can execute the same command and replace the "apt-get -y remove" ...

Inspired by the answer by @ovc I looked up how to disable apport and found this question. I had to edit /etc/default/apport and change enabled=1 to enabled=0 This way it is not started at boot. For not having to reboot simply stop the service with sudo service apport stop Let's see if the messages disappear now :-)

The beta ISO image will always be beta, because it contains a snapshot of packages that existed at a particular time, and Ubuntu 13.04 was beta at that time. (It is also beta now, as you know, though it will be released soon.) Any version of Ubuntu can contain bugs but development versions (alphas and betas) are expected to have more bugs than released, ...

See this support request and this inquiry. It seems like you can get an Arabic font working by installing the ubuntu-restricted-extras package, which provides ttf-mscorefonts-installer, which in turn includes the font from Microsoft. It is not clear whether this font is 100% functional, but one person at least reported that it was working for them.

No, Battlefield 4 Beta will not work on Ubuntu 13.04. According to the Battlefield 4 Beta test results on WineHQ Applications Database Battlefield 4 Beta got a Garbage rating because of freezing, slow frame rate and erratic mouse behavior; all of which makes the game unplayable.

1st check if your update settings are correct: The Ubuntu version shown after "pre-released updates" is the name of the new version. I have 14.10 installed on the image above. the "pre-released updates" needs to be active. the "notify me of new releases" needs to show "for any new version". Warning please note that once you upgrade to newer Ubuntu, ...

For ISOs that can be regularly updated then downloading from a zsync is a good idea. The daily builds area (link below) contains a snapshot from the automatic build area - no obvious quality control other than it just builds. For ISOs that are fixed at a certain point in time such as the beta then you should use the torrent file (preferably) or download ...

The betas are "released", you'll find them where you'd find any other release of Ubuntu: http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04/

Technically, a system which has been upgraded from a beta to a final release should be identical to a system on which the final version was installed from installation medium, so any bugs should affect both systems equally. This is what package managers are for, after all. At least, this worked fine for me during the 12.10 development cycle - maybe one ...

You need to undo what you did to get the nightly builds in the first place. for example: (may not exactly match your setup) install sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/thunderbird-aurora sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade downgrade sudo apt-get install ...

If you installed it through the deb that's floating around, you can just find it in the Software Center. After uninstalling, check your homefolder for the folders Steam and .steam which you can remove to get rid of it completely (including games).

You simply use apt-get sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade

Could find the exact reason why the dist-upgrade did not upgraded Linux kernel from 3.2.x to 3.5.x I installed the Linux kernel 3.5.18 manually through Synaptic Package manager. 12:37:57-~] uname -a Linux NOD-AF1-LO-J005 3.5.0-18-generic #29-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 19 10:27:31 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux 12:38:00-~]

The thing which creates these error messages, as far as I know, is called Apport. You may try uninstalling that.

As pointed out by Robie Basak I was able to find my answer in context of another question. Here is the essential part from that answer: Go to Settings...Privacy... And in the Diagnostics Tab, uncheck the Send Error Reports to Canonical option:

I just got rid of Steam for Linux, but prior to uninstalling I was unable to open Steam to uninstall the games. I was able to eliminate Steam from Ubuntu 12.04.2 by deleting both: /home/username/.steam /home/username/.local/Steam The latter is which took up the most space because all the local game data is stored there. Hope this helps anyone who was ...

If you are running the nightly build of Firefox https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa then to remove the nightly build of Firefox run this command in the terminal sudo apt-get remove firefox-trunk

I'm using the beta 1 right now and i recommend it, i see no limitations. And yes, there are more updates coming regularly but its fine.

If its saying something like partial upgrade , then DONT go for it . else you can for upgrading when updates are offered by your update manager .

If you update your packages constantly the OS should be almost stable by now and if you do it after the release all your packages will be the same version as a brand new one. If you need you can reset your user configuration files to get rid of any old issue with them but there should not be any difference between the packages from a updated system and the ...

Not all Beta releases are available, I've found this one though: http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/10.10/ 11.10 beta2 iso can be found here: http://kambing.ui.ac.id/iso/ubuntu/cdimage/releases/11.10/beta-2/

It turns out that 14.04 did receive an update for OpenSSL, but I didn't see it earlier, because (according to Timo Jyrinki) security updates for pre-releases propagate through the usual mirror system (slowly) instead of becoming available right away via the repo hosted on security.ubuntu.com.
