... And I would like to make synaptic package manager as the default to open .deb installation files. ... Synaptic can not be used as the default program for DEB files, just like you want to. But you can try gdebi. sudo apt-get install gdebi Now you can set gdebi as the default application for DEB-files.

No, it will usually not cause any problems. amd64, also known as x64, x86_64 and x86-64 refers to the 64-bit version of the x86 instruction set. It was developed by AMD (hence the name amd64) as an alternative to Intel's and HP's IA-64 architecture, as a means to add 64-bit computing capabilities to the existing x86 architecture. Most recent Intel and AMD ...

As NGRhodes points out, there simply isn't a 14.04 version of this PPA. You say you get this for every PPA... If that's really the case, you're either picking a load of duff PPAs without checking they have a 14.04 version, there's something else going on. Anyway, for this one, you have a couple of options: You can continue as you are (in the hope that ...

I don't know if the repositories keep track of download counts, but Debian based systems have a (voluntary?) program known as the popularity contest. The Ubuntu popularity contest stats can be found at http://popcon.ubuntu.com/. It tracks installation counts, recency of usage, etc. You might be able to indirectly get the numbers you need from popcon.

I have had the same issue with software center. Right click on the .deb package and select properties. Click on the Open With tab, select synaptic and click set as default. If synaptic is not available, you can install gdebi instead which is the recommended app to install deb packages by debian. You can install gdebi using the following command: sudo ...

First of all make a copy of every important files you have on the system! After that you can try the following: sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -f install && sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade If that doesn't help, you should ...

Your unmet dependencies problem is caused by the MySQL APT Repository repository. MySQL Server 5.6 from the MySQL APT Repository requires libstdc++6 >=4.9 however MySQL Server 5.6 (mysql-server-5.6) from the the default Ubuntu repositories requires libstdc++6 >=4.6. When you install the version of MySQL Server 5.6 from the Ubuntu Software Center, it ...

If you want to download all deb packages from a list, you can do this: cat path/to/text/file.txt | xargs apt-get install --reinstall --print-uris -qq $PKG | cut -d"'" -f2 | xargs wget Just put one package name per line. Like in a requirements.txt file. For example, with contents like this: apache2-mpm-event curl dmidecode ethtool libapache2-mod-wsgi ...

In case anyone is wondering, there's a much more sane and graceful way to do this. The last previous answer hopes to do the same thing, but that search fails since architectures are not actually part of package names, except in special cases. as root (or with sudo) run: aptitude remove ~i~ri386 If you don't use aptitude over apt-get already, do. It's ...

I assume that your target program is a c/c++ or similar language. You can include all files in one binary packages. But still the best to separate development files in another one. *-dev (not -devel) should include only headers, statics libs, shared libs and even binary tools if these tools only used for development. You can declare multiple binaries ...

A good way to solve these problems is to use "aptitude". sudo apt-get install aptitude sudo aptitude update sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics Now several ways to solve the problem were proposed. Choose the solution that uninstalls the least packets. Write down what packages are removed. Install the packages again, you still need.

For dependency information, you can see /var/lib/dpkg/status, which basically lists the contents of debian/control (with some additional information about the package itself) for each installed package. Additionally, you can look into /var/lib/dpkg/info to see the files installed, pre/post (un)installation scripts (if any), and configuration files (if any) ...

AMD64 packages are for 64-bit processors and i386 are for 32-bit. AMD64 and i386 refers to the architecture, not the manufacturer. To answer the question "Is it a problem to have packages with “amd64” architecture when I have an intel cpu?" - no, it isn't. However, there may be some special cases when the amd64 package is known to have problems and the ...
