In 13.04, you can install with apt-get: sudo apt-get install parallel sudo rm /etc/parallel/config The second line is necessary because paralel is installed in --tollef mode (if anyone can provide a rationale for this, I'd like to know).

https://build.opensuse.org/package/binaries?package=parallel&project=home%3Atange&repository=xUbuntu_10.10 This should work well with 10.10. If not, you could also try the Debian 5.0 Package from here. Edit: Just to clarify: Even though this link is to the OpenSUSE build service, it is an Ubuntu package. Packages for more recent Ubuntu versions ...

Yes, you can charge for it. The only restriction is that you must provide your customers with the source code to the software. Provided that you don't modify it, that is already handled by Canonical and the Ubuntu archive mirrors. See also: http://www.ubuntu.com/project/about-ubuntu/our-philosophy

I personally put it in ~/.bashrc export TERM=xterm-256color If that does not work, what terminal are you using ?

Check out Sphinx to write your documents in reStructuredText and make them translatable in gettext format.

Look at it ike this. People in England drive their vehicles to the left and the Americans on the right side of the road. And then we have people criticising on the advantages and disadvantages. It is a formatting style, and it began the way the GNU founders saw it. You wish a change, bring it on!

Most likely nothing. The output tells you that gnuplot is already the newest version.

Ubuntu is based on debian. This is an abridgment of Wikipedia: On 6 May 2009, it was announced that Debian would move from the GNU C Library to EGLIBC, citing problems with the development process of glibc. Debian and several of its derivatives now ship EGLIBC instead of glibc. EGLIBC is free software licensed under the GNU LGPL. These are the ...

They're [probably] all the same (gold has an extra version -- see the end of this post). But consider the rest of this answer code-golf for the best way to extract the versions. dpkg -L binutils | grep "/usr/bin/" | xargs -i sh -c "{} --version" Does pretty much what roadmr's does. dpkg -L binutils | xargs -i sh -c "{} --version 2>/dev/null || exit 0" ...

I'm on Ubuntu 11.10, and there still isn't a Canonical package of GNU Parallel. It's pretty easy to manually add though. Go to the official GNU Parallel site: http://www.gnu.org/software/parallel/ Download the latest source tarball: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/parallel/ Unpack and make it. . wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/parallel/parallel-20120522.tar.bz2 tar ...

$rvmsudo apt-get install make solved the problem.

No. According to the Hurd project, there is only one working distribution with Hurd, and that is Debian GNU/Hurd, which is in development. However, you can run the available image in Qemu. If you want to run in on hardware, check the GNU/Hurd Hardware Compatability Guide .

I looked today (2011-01-25) and didn't find any ppa or other apt repository. I did find https://launchpad.net/parallel but it only links to external resources. Also the parallel command in the moreutils package is NOT GNU parallel but http://kitenet.net/~joey/code/moreutils/ which is not as full featured. It's in macports and many other distributions so it ...

I would also like to add http://www.linuxfoundation.org/programs/legal They are the "official" body for this sort of thing (non-distro related).

The normal way to boot from CD is to change the boot order in the BIOS. Often pressing the F12 key during POST (PowerOnSelfTest) will temporarily do this, otherwise you can 'permanently' change it in setup (F2 or DEL usually). If your grub.cfg file doesn't already have the commands to boot from CD, typing them manually would be tedious.

The GSL source package provides the following binary packages: gsl-bin: GNU Scientific Library (GSL) -- binary package libgsl0-dbg: GNU Scientific Library (GSL) -- debug symbols package libgsl0-dev: GNU Scientific Library (GSL) -- development package libgsl0ldbl: GNU Scientific Library (GSL) -- library package To install the library package, open a ...

There are a few ways of interpreting your question so I'll be explicit in my answers. Are all command line applications in Ubuntu GNU projects? Of course not, you can install whatever you like and there are many things that are part of Ubuntu or Debian directly that aren't upstream. What about the most the command-line applications that ship with Ubuntu? ...

If you have physical access you could download the package parallel_20130922-1_all.deb from https://packages.debian.org/sid/parallel and install like any other debian package. You may also need to locate and obtain the packages it depends on and install them first. Always Insure that you have recent backups and a recovery plan before making changes to a ...

The packages for GSL can be found here You can install just the library by using: apt-get install libgsl0ldbl You can also install the development package and binary using: apt-get install gsl-bin libgsl0-dev The resources/docs can also be installed using: apt-get install gsl-doc-info gsl-doc-pdf gsl-ref-html gsl-ref-psdoc *depending on your setup you may ...

The firmware for the 2200 is located in the Ubuntu package linux-firmware - the driver is provided by intel, but not the source code. You can find specific firmware downloads at intel.

You should take a look at GRUB Customizer.

Try this: for util in `dpkg --listfiles binutils |grep "\/usr\/bin\/"`; do echo -n "$util -> "; echo "" | $util --version done This gets all the binaries in the binutils packages and queries each one with its --version parameter. I echo an empty string for those that expect input in the terminal.

You likely made an error when copying and pasting the text for Makefile.am and src/Makefile.am from the website ~/amhello % cat src/Makefile.am bin_PROGRAMS = hello hello_SOURCES = main.c ~/amhello % cat Makefile.am SUBDIRS = src dist_doc_DATA = README Specifically there are TWO DIFFERENT files here - src/Makefile.am should contain the two lines ...

You can use type to find out: $ type echo echo is a shell builtin $ type sudo sudo is /usr/bin/sudo For bash builtins, use help, as in help echo.

It appears that gpc was removed from Debian (and subsequently Ubuntu) in February 2011 due to the project being unmaintained/discontinued.

Seems like a good idea, but I don't think it would be widely used. For one, I'm pretty sure that programs compiled for Linux don't run under HURD. This would force people to change their system with a clean install. Not many people want to do so. This leaves new users. Most new users don't know much about this system, so why would they use the ...

If you built screen from source you'll need to recompile it with the 256 color flag enabled. Run ./configure --enable-colors256 && make && sudo make install

afaik gettext is useful when you have a programming language which contains strings, that is when strings are intermixed with code. alert(_("Hello")); Then a preprocessor finds all occurrences of _("..") and generates a .po template and then you copy that edit that .po file translating "Hello" to your language: msgid "Hello" msgstr "Cześć" gettext is ...
