This file doesn't contain any font but juts the additional file one needs to make a Debian package from some other archive containing the actual fonts. As the package fonts-lobstertwo is available from the official Ubuntu package sources for 14.04 you may just install that package using e.g. Software Center

You can also use gdebi, a tool similar to dpkg that also resolves any dependencies needed for the package to work. You just need to install gdebi (sudo apt-get install gdebi), and then run: sudo gdebi /PATH/TO/PACKAGE.deb

By disabling your PPAs, you will no longer be able to get updates through those PPAs. For example, if you were using the NGINX Stable PPAs on your system, and I issue an update to update a security fix and it ONLY exists in that PPA (since those versions are newer than Ubuntu), you would not get those updates. ONLY disable all your PPAs and items in "Other ...

It looks to me as though you were trying to install a 64 bit package into a 32 bit operating system and it choked. How about you tell me what you are trying to install and I will tell you the easy way to do it? studying your post some more. GCC seems to stand for gnu compiler collection. From what I can tell that's already installed in ubuntu, so it ...

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, ...

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, 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.

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."

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.

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.

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 ...
