It looks like this package is intended for debugging 64 bit programs ( remotely ) on a 32 bit system. I'm not even sure why it is showing as installable on 64bit, which seems to be a bug. You want to just install the regular gdb package.

I don't believe that PCManFM 1.2.0 is available in the Lubuntu 13.10 repositories so you have to add it. sudo apt-add-repository ppa:lubuntu-dev/lubuntu-daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install pcmanfm Of course you will be asked for your password. Just enter it and enter.

It is not yet in the list of compatible hardware: http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/catalog/category/VIDEO/?page=1 But maybe you should provide more details on how you installed it... With xorg driver or ATI/AMD drivers directly from their website?

I was able to get 14.04 LTR installed on my Macbook Pro 5,3 last night. A few days ago I installed 12.04.4 LTR (64-bit Mac (AMD64) desktop CD) because I knew it would be fully supported. I did it from a USB drive using this method. In my case I didn't have an OSX installation so I booted an OSX Lion install disk and used the terminal there to convert and ...

If you do the "Install alongside Windows" it will format everything that is not Windows and install, if you do "something else" you can change around partitions as you please, but I don't believe you can make a NTFS partition. However, you can use gparted on the live cd or install it and using it after the install to do what you are wanting to do. Or you can ...

Append that lines to ~/.profile - that means to add them at the end of the file. There is nothing wrong if MANPATH_MAP doesn't fit in the predefined columns. If you are afraid of messing things up make a backup of the files you're modifying.

Partition your drive. Just know that Lubuntu won't recognize Windows drives. Like user2548592 said, it may just be a better idea to install Ubuntu and get Lxde Desktop using apt-get. This can be accomplished by running sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop.

Unfortunatly, your lubuntu disk dosn't recognize your windows 7 partitions. Try clicking somthing else and give lubuntu some space. Hope it helps. BTW, I suggest you use the regular ubuntu instead. It may recognize your Windows 7 installation. After your done installing you can get lxde desktop through apt-get.

Using sudo dpkg -i <package_name.deb> is the standard way of installing .deb files on ubuntu. However, this won't install any dependencies for you, so this would mean if you want to install a package that requires some other package you will have to install the required package yourself first and then install the package you want to. apt is a ...

dpkg tells you what went wrong if you read its output. However if you like GUI apps, I would recommend GDebi to install deb files, although if something goes wrong it will recommend you to open a terminal and do a sudo apt-get install -f. To install GDebi: sudo apt-get install gdebi. Then for every deb file you have, right click and select Open With -> ...

depending on how you have setup your filesystem, you should fairly easily be able to re-install ubuntu. If this isn't an option (ie. you have things in your home drive that will have to be deleted in order to reinstall due to a / and /home being on the same drive.) if you upload your apt history.log, found at /var/log/apt/history.log, we can have a ...

The driver for that wireless card is ath9k_htc, which is already present in newer kernels. I highly suggest that you upgrade Ubuntu, as that will upgrade the kernel too and you should find your wireless card running without doing anything. If you're worried your laptop is too old to support newer Ubuntu releases you can install Lubuntu which is a lighter ...

I don't think you can get that on disc for Ubuntu (Ubuntu has more software in the repositories then Debian, and the full Debian is 10 DVDs for i386 and another 10 for x86_64). You can set-up a mirror. Remember the guidelines on that link, and especially that the expected size is approximately 642 gigabytes.

if I am not wrong glibc and libc6 are same version of GNU C Library from http://www.linux-m68k.org/faq/glibcinfo.html so you can install libc6 instead which is available in ubuntu 14.04 and 13.10 also sudo apt-get install libc6

Not all computers support booting from USB, have you checked the BIOS setup for any "Enable/disable boot from USB" option? It sound to me like there is nothing wrong with the USB install if you can boot on your home computer, it probably has to do with the configuration/limitations of the BIOS on your schools computer(s). My previous school had disabled ...

if you install the repo as above then you will install the i386 32 bit steam. It would be better to install the 64 bit deb file from the valve website if you have a 64 bit operating system.

First answer is that it is most likely against school rules to be modifying their computers without their consent. Do you have their consent? I will answer the question fully once I understand that this is to be done without breaking any of your school policies.

Depends on game. Most modern games require proper installation in the registry so it would be better to first install the game through Wine. But if you know what keys game uses, you can easily import them inside Wine registry. It is simple ini-like text file $WINEPREFIX/system.reg and $WINEPREFIX/user.reg. To use multiple drives, you have to tell Wine ...

You will need to partition your drive for another operating system. Use gparted or similar program to break hard drive into segments. Once you do that, select the particular partition when you install OpenSUSE. Please let me know if you do not understand how to partition a drive.

I was experiencing the same issue, found a lot of stuff about partitions / etc... followed the instructions in the other answer to live boot / format / etc... It was still hanging while installing 12.04 at the same "preparing to install". I tried installing 14.04 this morning, and it worked perfectly. YMMV

The problem is a bug in the BIOS which, instead of listing the USB key in the boot menu, doubles the entry for the internal drive: When selecting the second (doubled) entry for the internal drive, the machine boots from the USB key. Similar bugs (wrong labels, missing entries) exist in the BIOS' options when configuring the boot order. Machine: Medion ...

Fixed It: There was a BIOS entry down below the boot priority selection that said "EFI Device Priority". I selected the "UEFI: Hitachi ..." to be 1st and "ubuntu" to be second and it boots now. Notably, that second boot option (UEFI: Hitachi ...) didn't work the first time I installed Ubuntu. I had to run the Boot-Recovery-Disk to get that "UEFI: Hitachi ...
