I had the same issue and simply installed an archived version of libjsoncpp0 for Ubuntu Trusty. Just download and install it with Ubuntu Software Center from: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/amd64/libjsoncpp0/download

Deb isn't actually a command (I thought so too, at first) -- Assuming you are trying to download/install a deb, do this (for example): wget http://whatever.com/whatever.deb then dpkg -i whatever.deb then run the commands: sudo apt-get update

The solution for me was the following script to build R from source: wget https://cran.rstudio.com/src/base/R-3/R-3.2.2.tar.gz tar xvf R-3.2.2.tar.gz cd R-3.2.2 sudo apt-get install gcc sudo apt-get install fort77 sudo apt-get install aptitude sudo aptitude install g++ sudo aptitude install xorg-dev sudo aptitude install libreadline-dev sudo aptitude ...

I don't know of a "good/"easy" way to get an intermediate version of R (one between the Ubuntu repo version and the current one), but you have a few options: You will likely need to install dependencies anyway, so you could try installing from deb. If you only need the one version installed on your system, this may be the way to go. Install it using gdebi, ...

You might note that that particular version is smaller than all other releases by several megabytes so I suspect a faulty archive at the developer's end. BytecoinWallet-1.0.11.amd64.deb is 539.9kb BytecoinWallet-1.0.10.amd64.deb is 3.2MB Here is a screenshot of the SourceForge download page to show this: Good news is that the slightly older version ...

You probably should learn about packaging. Almost never would a wise person "build from source" and then try to wrestle that into a package. Instead, one would fiddle around with files in the source directory (the debian directory) and build a package with dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot. If none of that makes sense, you seriously need to learn about ...

Run "debuild -us -uc" in the main folder. You may also need to install some additional packages to get debuild to work, but it should tell you what it's missing.

How to make my package updatable via update manager? How I can make my software installable via apt-get? I want to keep source on my server. For both of these things, you'll need to create a repository to host your package, so that it can be downloaded. The easiest way to do this is to create a PPA on Launchpad. You will then have a PPA / repository,...

You need to submit a Debian Enhancement Proposal, to propose said enhancement to dpkg. For example, the autopkgtests support is via DEP-8.

I created a script that does exactly what you want: https://gist.github.com/kotarou3/2b311fb7b79ae6b682246b32acf0b7e9 python3-apt and python3-networkx are the dependencies. It uses the apt package cache as the source of package information. Package names themselves are output one per line to stdout, while any comments about them (such as if they are part ...

Building qt5webchannel : git clone git://code.qt.io/qt/qtwebchannel.git qmake-qt5 make sudo make install EDIT : Sorry, fails with Ubuntu16.04 : No /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/QtGui/QApplication ... That could be the reason for no qtwebchannel in Debian, Ubuntu : A less complete Qt5 ?

All newer versions of ubuntu have iw installed by default. Install a newer version to avoid such a headache. Also, you can go to http://packages.ubuntu.com where you can see a list of dependencies for each package you select. You can use the command dpkg -l | grep packagename to search for installed packages. example: dpkg -l | grep iw If you connect to ...

Find another system that has 12.04 and then install everything you want using synaptic or app store, (or terminal). Then copy all of the files you find in (root)/var/cache/apt and to your machine in the same directory (with root access). You still might need to have an updated cache, but all heavy downloading should be finished with this method. Do not ...

If you can download the .deb files to your phone, and transfer them to the computer via USB cable, you can use tethering to let Ubuntu download directly using the same data connection your phone uses to download the .deb package files. Then dependencies will be automatically filled. The downside of this is that you'll use (a little) more cellular data -- ...

Run sudo apt-get update first. After updating indexes, you can run all the commands to install packages: sudo apt-get install macchanger sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng sudo apt-get install reaver

The reason why you can't find the .deb file in the /var/cache/apt/archives/ directory is because it isn't there anymore. The locate command finds it because locate does not look at the actual directory contents but works from a cache. From man locate: locate reads one or more databases prepared by updatedb(8) and writes file names matching at least ...
