I would suggest to use dpkg from the command line (shell). The good thing about it is that it is already installed on your system, because apt-get is just an extension built around dpkg. apt-get handles checking for available packages, checking for updates, downloading the packages, but dpkg is the command that actually handles the package installs, removes, ...

Try by removing the existing Software center and then install by using the following commands, sudo apt-get remove software-center sudo apt-get install software-center

Once you have installed a package, it is possible to see what files that package has installed on your system. You can do this: with the graphical synaptic package manager: install synaptic (it is not installed by default). Use apt-get install synaptic, or install it through Software Center. I like it better than the Software Center, but YMMV. finding ...

Have you tried removing fjsidojf frmo your sources? And adding i386 support might help for most chrubuntu users. sudo apt --add-architecture i386 Wine installed out of the box for me after that.

To remove unresolved packages take a look here Here is how I installed youtube-to-mp3. Download your preferred architecture 32bit or 64bit. Once downloaded, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, navigate to where the file was downloaded, probably the downloads folder, and run the command(s) below: sudo dpkg -i ...

The reason why you are seeing this message is because your apt cache of the remote repository's index is out of date. It is looking for libjavascriptcoregtk-1.0-0 i386 2.4.4-1~ubuntu1 (note the version 2.4.4-1~ubuntu1). But if we dig down on the remote repository, we see that the version in the package repository is 2.4.7-1~ubuntu1 (as of this writing). This ...

In Ubuntu 14.04, you can do it this way: sudo aptitude install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libcanberra-gtk0:i386 libdbus-glib-1-2:i386 libgconf-2-4:i386 liborbit-2-0:i386 libusb-0.1-4:i386 libgnomevfs2-0:i386 libice6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libsm6:i386 libxtst6:i386 libxt6:i386 libasound2:i386 libgcrypt11:i386 libudev0:i386

In Ubuntu, at least in LTS releases, the upstream version numbers of many packages never change for a given release. There are very few exceptions, such as Firefox, and the kernel. You have three options: Upgrade a release. Not really an option. Find a PPA you can trust. Compile from source. This is definitely a viable option, but the exact steps depend ...

Regarding .tar.gz files and where to run the file. Usual place for such not-managed-with-apt software is /opt, e.g. Google chrome does this, or Eclipse.

it's totally fine that you are new to UBUNTU... You do know about "Software Center" in UBUNTU.... Go here : SynapticHowto. This article has all answers you needed. More over to do it totally using Terminal: AptGet/Howto I hope this will help you alot.

I had the same result, but I got it to work. Instead of the Ubuntu packages, get the generic "Linux (32-bit & 64-bit)" which is 148 MB zip file. Unzip and then sudo ./amd-driver-installer-14.501.1003-x86.x86_64.run. Choose to build packages for Trusty. It takes several minutes and doesn't seem to be doing anything, but just wait for it. Then when I ...

Warning: This answer is a Work In Progress Even though I asked the OP to consider using WinQemu, I'm officially writing an answer for those that choose to "do it from scratch." Assuming your build host is 64-bit and your Windows is 32-bit: We need to remove the OP's failed install of the cross-compile tools, using: sudo apt-get --purge remove mingw-w64 ...

Long story short, the long descriptions were removed from the core Packages files, no doubt to lower their file-size. Localised descriptions are shipped out in separate files and the main packages list only has a skimpy version, like: Description: terminal-based package manager But I'm British (en-GB) so when apt-get update happens, you can see it ...

Getting the jdk from oracle here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk7-downloads-1880260.html is essentially the same as from elsewhere. Oracle doesn't seem to want you to get the tar.gz of the jdk/jre without first accepting their license agreement. As far as I can tell they have managed to successfully remove the old archives from ...

I'd start by removing clamav - sudo apt-get purge clamav* - then try again. It appears there's an error in the clamav setup at present. You could try re-installing it again after - I'd recommend purge over remove here as the error could be in config files which remove may leave behind.

I'd use CheckInstall. Essentially, instead of using sudo make install you can use sudo checkinstall This installs software as packages managed by dpkg, which means that you can easily uninstall it with sudo dpkg -r packagename

Ш reinstalled libboost-all-dev from repo. Before that I've done sudo apt-get autoremove and this time it's all OK. It seems that I had some boost-related trash installed and not autoremoved.

I'm not sure what APT::NeverMarkAuto really does, whether it stops it from being considered for dependency resolution. edit /etc/apt/preferences and put in: Package: mono Pin: version * Pin-Priority: -10 (warning, I didn't test this. Even if it does work, this might stop you from even installing it manually.) More docs in the apt_preferences(5) man ...

You can use search patterns with aptitude to list suggested packages and then feed them to install. E.g., for tomboy: sudo aptitude install '~Rsuggests:tomboy' Warning: be extremely careful doing this. You can easily have thousands of packages installed or upgraded in one go.

So, you got Luarocks from the previous question, but you want a newer version. I checked the Luarocks homepage, and found their instructions to be pretty good, and did the install on a VM in my home machine - it worked!

You should still be able to use synaptic or apt (apt-get specifically) I don't think they use the policy kit that's having problems, in case the answers in the (older) possible-dup-Q don't work.

In this case there is no possibility to specify a Version. But you can use sudo apt-get upgrade to update all your packages to the newest Version, luarocks too. And if you dont have luarocks installed yet, you can do it by typing: sudo apt-get install luarocks That should installiert the newest Version, which is available in the ubuntu package ...

I'm not sure if you've updated your package index files lately, maybe some of the files you're looking for have been removed or renamed from the source, hence the "file not found" error. Try an sudo apt-get update first. Or maybe the particular source (us.archive.ubuntu.com) doesn't have that file for some reason, if update doesn't work you could try ...

Luarocks is part of the universe repository - from the Dash, open Software & Updates, then in the Ubuntu tab, make sure the Universe repository is selected (see picture below). To install from the terminal, execute sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get install luarocks, or install from the Ubuntu Software Center, by searching for luarocks

no need. In Linux distros, there can be two type of updates: System updates: where the software components or libraries, linux kernel are updated Software updates: this includes update of software like firefox browser, vlc etc. So the point is when you have software updates you need not to worry about the update messing with your open software.

You can use your computer normally while updates are installing. This is because file system works different in Linux than in Windows. In Linux, once file is opened, it is kept in process' memory until process exits, no matter what happened to the opened file during existence of process. For example, you could delete some files process use or even delete the ...

I eventually traced the problem to a broken package from the oibaf PPA, as described here.

Ubuntu has no 'reverse compatibility' mode, at least, not in the same sense as Windows does. Even in Windows, the 'compatibility mode' does not account for older, non-compatible dependencies for programs. To get older software installed into 14.10, you would have to download the .deb file, and attempt to install it. You might run into issues such as ...

Per your comments, you say that you're "doing RHEL based Linux distribution" and that you don't know what mistake you're making. The mistake you're making is that you are thinking that Ubuntu is a RHEL based distribution. Ubuntu is a Debian based system, and uses dpkg as the package management system. It does not use RPM packages, which is why using rpm ...

Ubuntu doesn't use rpm packages, hence you don't see them (as some people stated already in comments). Ubuntu is using deb packages so you have to use proper tools to handle them, like: dpkg, apt and some other more or less convenient tools to handle repos in text console or graphics mode. So - dpkg -l in that case was the proper tool.
