Even the latest Pidgin does not work with Google's new security standards, which require you to login to a Google app authentication portal from inside the app. I do not believe there is a solution to fix this at this time.

Based on Olli's earlier answer, I came up with a method to find all currently installed packages on your system that requires a reboot. ~$ mkdir debs ~$ cd debs ~/debs$ apt-get download $(dpkg -l | tail -n +7 | awk '{print $2}') Wait for the download to complete, on my system it was around 900 MB so it might take a while depending on your connection. ...

In General It is not recommended and therefore not possible to change the python version of your system (i.e. with apt-get update python), since many scripts rely on a specific version. You can brake your system and it may cause problems with future updates. Instead, you may want to have a look at virtual environments as answered here. If you are searching ...

This answer will not get you the latest package of Swift 2.6.0 but addresses your 'alternative' option: how to patch the existing version to get around a specific problem. A few steps required: You will need to ensure that you have the source repositories enabled by opening /etc/apt/sources.list with your favorite text editor and un-commenting lines ...

The Ubuntu Cloud Archive generally tracks the versions which shipped with each OpenStack release. The latest OpenStack release (Liberty) shipped with swift 2.5.0, which is what is in the cloud archive. The swift project's series and milestone information, as well as the the projected OpenStack Mitaka release summary may be helpful to track.

When i followed this guide few weeks back - I got rid of the existing mongo-db packages that came with trusty tahr(14.04.3) by using sudo apt-get purge mongodb-org* then installed it. I believe that key is needed during first time install and then for updates not for uninstall(I am guessing). So essentially sudo service mongod stop sudo apt-get purge ...

Your problem is not ubuntu based, but is network issue. If you closely see it says : error are below wget: unable to resolve host address ‘github.com’ which means that your DNS server cannot find github.com . Check your /etc/resolv.conf and try to ping or dig github.com after you fix your dns server issue.

Well, I found the solution to my problem. If you are using Ubuntu 14.04 and want to install libccd-dev, you have to add the following PPA: ppa:libccd-debs/ppa and then do: sudo apt-get install libccd-dev as explained here: https://bitbucket.org/ompl/ompl/issues/79/ompl-on-ubuntu-1404. My main motivation to install libccd-dv was because I wanted to ...

There are two different servers hosting the debian package for Swift. Germany Mirror Denmark Mirror There shouldn't be a whole lot of difference, but it's possible that they have the bug figured out. The way to find out is to install and try it. If the bug is still there then you know it's not fixed 😛

Apt does not consider multiple versions of the same package. It chooses one (based on a combination of version numbers, pinning etc) and then it will either install that version or not install the package at all. Aptitude will consider lower versions of the package but later upgrades will attempt to upgrade those lower versions which may result in your ...

as you can see libc6 2.15 is used in ubuntu 12.04, so you have to find and add a external repository, "sideload"/install it manually or compile it yourself if you need a newer version... as ubuntu 12.04 is supported for just another year, i would suggest you to upgrade anyway to a newer (lts-)release! - if it is possible wait 2 months and get 16.04 lts ...

If you want to install curl PHP extension then php5-curl is the package you want. If you want to install just curl as in the command then the package name is curl. Please learn about the basic package commands as: apt-cache show <package> and apt-cache search <pattern> and more.

I've already faced similar problems and I figured that in most cases the only thing you have to do is sudo dpkg --configure -a and then sudo apt-get install -f If that doesn't help, you should edit file /var/lib/dpkg/status and delete whole blocks of broken packages. Then repeat first two commands and that's it.

I have a small python script that can be run on Windows that parses the ubuntu package web site to find the dependency tree and download all needed packages + doing checksum verification. This might obviously download more than needed, but was the simplest solution for me. https://gist.github.com/Zitrax/2bad212a3b0571357e1b

By default, the package with the highest version number is installed, regardless of which repository it comes from, unless its version number is lower than the currently installed version of the package (this can happen, for example, if you downloaded a higher version as a .deb package and installed it manually). In the very unlikely case that several ...

If you installed "stuff" via a package manager (apt-get, dpkg, synaptic), it's all logged in /var/log/apt/*. It's a simple matter of editing to generate the apt-get purge commands. If you installed "stuff" some other way (sudo make install, /usr/bin/cpan, ...) you have to uninstall it using the same method. To make your life easier in the future, ...

First, there are multiple issues visible from the information you provide: sudo: unable to resolve host – see Error message when I run sudo: unable to resolve host (none) Malformed Apt repository lists – see How do I fix a “Problem with MergeList” or “status file could not be parsed” error when trying to do an update?

Firstly, I generated a clean and minimal sources.list from repogen having only main and universe sections. Then, I made a thorough reset of my apt system by following: sudo apt-get clean sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/ sudo apt-get update --fix-missing But even that didn't solve the problem. Then I located the problem source to the universe section of the ...

Most of what's been written as answers here is essentially a sequence of voodoo. The actual flow I used to work around the failing update, that blocked the entire process has been: In a terminal, run sudo apt-get upgrade Identify the failing update from the error there (as no one bothered making the update error show in the update UI). This required some ...

By default the Ubuntu package management installs all applications for all users. This will not stop you from manually installing additional applications to a user's HOME directory. In this case you will have to copy this installation over to the other user's HOME. Most applications will store user defined settings in a user's HOME. Most but depending on ...

You are successfully running apt-get install -f and it is informing you that: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 15 not upgraded. 1 not fully installed or removed.

What happened when you tried: sudo apt-get update Have you also tried: sudo apt-get upgrade --fix-missing It seems like it is trying to tell you how to fix the problem. Don't be afraid to give it a try. If it doesn't work, come back.

The warnings are safe to ignore, as they only concern the dpkg database. Actual installation is done with APT, which doesn't use this database. When you are using dpkg in this manner, you need to use dselect-upgrade in order to apply the changes marked. sudo apt-get dselect-upgrade From man dpkg: Note that this file is mostly useless if you don't ...

The fastest way to provide packages to your users is by creating a PPA, especially as you said development is moving fast. It has an option for nightly builds, which you might find desirable. This way, you can produce stable releases as they come out, and automatically build for several Ubuntu releases and architectures without much trouble. When ...

I'll address the three parts of your question: I think it's matter of opinion. As a user, I don't have any preferences for either of those. As a developer, I mainly use PPAs for the reasons below. The more obvious are that you use Canonical's resources instead of your own, and that includes the GPG key management, for your users. Remember that when one ...
