Make sure that the restricted and universe repositories are enabled. Hit Alt+F2, type software-properties-gtk and hit Enter. Under Ubuntu Software tab, enable all the repositories.

Since as per your comment you want to list only the packages that are going to be removed: sudo apt-get --dry-run autoremove | grep -Po '^Remv \K[^ ]+' grep command breakdown: -P: Interprets the given pattern as a PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expression) pattern -o: Prints only the matched string instead of the whole line Regex breakdown: ^: ...

Did some additional research, and installing setuptools and running easy_install on the package solved the problem for me.

This is safe to run for unity. Although, you should always carefully review the list of packages to uninstall before you agree to make the changes as you may have some other application that uses one of these as a dependency and it may get uninstalled automatically as a result. For example, this will most likely uninstall gnome-shell. Run the following ...

I found an answer here (for others that stumble upon this unanswered question) http://askubuntu.com/a/34668/432978 "The /etc/apt/apt.conf file is still read if it exists. The apt configuration provided by packages is installed as separate files in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ so that it can be added and updated independent of any local changes you make in the ...

Actually you only need to filter the output of your sudo apt-get autoremove --dry-run command. For instance you can do it with sudo apt-get autoremove --dry-run | head -n 5 | tail -n 1

A virtual package is a generic name that applies to any one of a group of packages, all of which provide similar basic functionality. For example, both the tin and trn programs are news readers, and should therefore satisfy any dependency of a program that required a news reader on a system, in order to work or to be useful. They are therefore ...

You should upgrade to 15.04 as soon as possible as 14.10 has reached its End of Life (EOL) yesterday (23rd July, 2015). Note that mongodb-dev is not available in 14.10, your best bet would be to download the .deb file from launchpad and the install it with : sudo dpkg -i package_name.deb Then you need to satisfy the dependency (libboost-dev) with : ...

I'll give you the answer just because you asked again after the installation of Ubuntu 15.04 The package mongodb-dev is not longer in the Ubuntu Standard Repositories. The latest release was 2.4.9-1ubuntu2 in Trusty.

Please avoid modifing system files. Instead you should place an executable script in /etc/profile.d (scripts in here got executed for every user) to change $PATH value. /etc/profile.d/10-<package name>.sh #!/bin/sh export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/executable

I'm moorkai. I received a few e-mails with complaints about the PPA not being usable, but I really didn't expect so much users will try to install Cinnamon from my PPA ... and fail due to my sloppiness. I guess I deserve the bashing from the commenters then. I am sincerely sorry for all the inconvenience caused. I had some issues with the Launchpad system ...

I would use a ppa to provide your application and add a dependency to include the qt5 packages available in the "Ubuntu SDK team" ppa. You can easily add a ppa dependency to your own ppa using edit PPA dependencies: The SDK ppa mentions this for 12.04: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS has older versions of packages offered in this PPA, but the SDK support has ...

Personally, I've never had any problems autoremoving, however, other users have reported the uninstallation of all kinds of stuff they didn't want to uninstall so there is the very real possibility of unforeseen consequences. If you are the kind of person that would rather not have to fix things, you should probably leave it alone.

You can use an application that gives you all your apps in categorized. The app is called alacarte. Install it: sudo apt-get install alacarte You can find it from dash searching for "main menu" or "alacarte".

I had a similar problem - could not run virtualbox VMs, and my installed kernel version seemed OLDER than my installed kernel header files. (but with different precise version numbers than in the question.) (I got in this state after upgrading from Ubuntu 14.04 to 14.10 and then to 15.04) I discovered that in my GRUB menu on boot, under 'Additional options ...

The binary R is usually placed in /usr/bin/R and not in /usr/local/bin/R. Therefore you haven't installed the package via a package manager from the standard repositories. /usr/bin/R is part of the package r-base-core, therefore try this: sudo apt-get remove r-base-core Additionally check the subfolders in /usr/local for more R-stuff to remove, E.G.: ...

If you want the code that's actually packaged in Ubuntu, patches and all, then they're on Launchpad, easily cloned using Bazaar. All you need to know is the name of the source package of any given package. Then you can do: bzr branch lp:ubuntu/<source-package-name> Adapting the code you used: awk '/Source/{print $2}' /var/lib/apt/lists/*Packages | ...

You can not mirror the servers, you can clone the projects.

In Ubuntu 14.04 (apt package version 1.0.1ubuntu2, I believe), apt-get includes the download command to download the given package as a .deb in the current directory. For example, suppose we want to download the file manager Ranger: $ apt-get download ranger Results in: $ ls . | grep ranger ranger_1.6.0-1_all.deb

Read here more detailed information about differences between package managers. As for apt-get you reffered to new dependencies of a package that gets hold or etc. apt-get has a command (function) which is not always used in common for example to update and upgrade packages: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade --with-new-pkgs the command ...

Always use sudo apt-get upgrade until you run into problems. Then use: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade If that still poses problems use: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade --with-new-pkgs And only then use: aptitude and cycle through the proposed solutions and take the best one for you! Otherwise, one of ...

Via Interval from man collectd.conf Interval Seconds Configures the interval in which to query the read plugins. Obviously smaller values lead to a higher system load produced by collectd, while higher values lead to more coarse statistics. eg: <LoadPlugin df> Interval 1 </LoadPlugin>

Altho I got the system into a state where I could use apt-get again, I still had the unresolved dependencies and the corrupt characters (which I have since discovered were due to a bug in a coincidental simultaneous upgrade to Firefox 39.0 - see below). So I bit the bullet, and did a re-install of Ubuntu. In brief: booted off my installation pen drive ...

If you look at one of the binary packages you'll notice their "deleted" status. It seems that lcms1 is deprecated and that migration to lcms2 has started on several debian packages. That's why liblcms1-dev is not available in ubuntu repositories as of 15.04. Source: https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2013/12/msg00570.html

All works great. I assume, you forgot sudo apt-get update or simply start all steps again: sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin* sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main" | sudo tee ...

Yes, the command apt-get -f install installs a new JRE, but that's not a problem, you can correct, if necessary, the default JRE with the command below sudo update-alternatives --config java And yes, you could change the dependencies of the package. But that's not really necessary. Read more here, for a solution.

CUPS is an acronym for Common Unix Printing System. So when a new printer comes out, it needs to be added to the database (one portion of the update). If it uses the same commands as a previous printer from the manufacturer, then the drivers are already in the database, otherwise new drivers are needed (second portion of the update).

At a guess it is because it seems to have been purchased and developed by Apple for Mac and other Unix-like systems (including Linux). Since it is funded by a company—not grants, fund raising etc., more money can be poured into its development than most open source projects. You can find some more information here and on the CUPS wikipedia page.
