The PPA Brightbox Ruby NG has no packages for Vivid. But Ruby 2.0 is in the Ubuntu Repository for your Ubuntu Vivid installation. Therefore sudo apt-get install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge ppa:brightbox/ruby-ng sudo apt-get install --reinstall ruby

Basically, re-compiling the source is as easy as outlined in this code snippet on github, which mainly is making sure that the paths are correct for Ubuntu. Here is a short overview on which paths are important for ubuntu: ./configure --prefix=/etc/nginx \ --sbin-path=/usr/sbin/nginx \ --conf-path=/etc/nginx/nginx.conf \ ...

You can find a list of all the installed packages by the following command dpkg -l In general there are a huge number of installed packages, so the terminal can not show you all of them. It is better to enter the output of the command to a file. Suppose you want to print the list of installed package in a file nammed installed-packages.txt . Then run the ...

To install pidgin : sudo apt-get install pidgin Now the package pidgin-skype-common mainly provides two shared library files libskype_dbus.so and libskype.so to interface skype with pidgin. It has nothing to with any command. You can see this by dpkg -L pidgin-skype-common : $ dpkg -L pidgin-skype-common /. /usr /usr/lib /usr/lib/purple-2 ...

In some cases dkms remove command does not remove the modules correctly. This may happen, if you used mkdsc or other options of dkms. It is quite safe to remove the module manually, if it is not installed according to dkms status. You can do it by sudo rm -r /var/lib/dkms/alsa-firewire Another notice. You incorrectly use dkms install command. The ...

Basically, dpkg-query shows you what is installed on your system, or even packages which has been installed on your system and then been removed at some point. Interestingly enough, if a package uses a dependency of another package, dpkg may list them as installed even though one of them was never fully installed on the system. But apt is used to download ...

I had that same problem with other library (libcudart.so). I solved it using an static '.a' library. What I did: $ find /usr/local/cuda-7.0 -type f -name libcudart\* directory/libcuda_static.a $ compiler -Ldirectory -lcudart_static I hope this helps someone

Fixed! Still not completely sure what was going on, didn't do anything to the system or add any new repos since the last update but after kernel upgrade any time I tried to use apt-get or aptitude or dpkg to install/purge the stated in the OP package the system froze cause of memory lack, even if it was a .deb package. I managed to fix this with ...

I had a similar problem after the upgrade, but a simple remove, reinstall, and then reinstall all the other tex packages seemed to fix things. sudo apt-get remove tex-common sudo apt-get install tex-common sudo apt-get install texlive-*

I had the same problem with another package after some funny things with apt. The solution is relative simple. Open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T and type: sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-generic

I went back over my asked questions on this site and realised I never posted the commands I ended up using: export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive # stop annoying prompts dpkg -s "$@" > /dev/null 2>&1 || apt-get -qq -y -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confdef" -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confold" install "$@"

Assuming you're not actually trying to air-gap the machines for security purposes or something: Connect one ubuntu machine to the internet. Install updates as normal with apt-get. The .deb's you just upgraded that box with are now stored in /var/cache/apt/archives. scp the .deb's to each of the other ubuntu machines. At a cost of a little bandwidth, on ...

@heemayl answer tells you how to get the source code but in case you are wondering how come the package is installed without using the source code? It is because Ubunutu does not build packages from source and instead downloads precompiled binaries. A distro like Gentoo Linux however would download the source and build a package locally.

By default apt-get install does not download the source codes of packages. There is a specific apt-get option to do that which is source. From man apt-get: source source causes apt-get to fetch source packages. APT will examine the available packages to decide which source package to fetch. It will then find and download into ...

It is a wrong way to manually remove any files or folders installed by dpkg. The solution is to re-install google-chrome via a deb package. Download deb file from google.com, then install it using sudo dpkg -i <file_name> then remove it sudo apt-get purge google-chrome*

I had the same issue which got resolved by downgrading my libbsd0. sudo apt-get install libbsd0=0.6.0-2ubuntu1 My libbsd0 was versioned 0.7.0-2+deb.sury.org~trusty+1 which is probably incompatible.

This should not be a problem sudo apt-get remove llvm-3.4 llvm sudo apt-get autoremove

On Ubuntu (and Debian), creating a deb package would be the best way to go, as everything can be automated, so that no end-user intervention is needed. The only cases where package installation or upgrades are not automated are if the package has some configuration options that need input from the user (mainly during installation only) or if a configuration ...

Try this: sudo apt-get -f install This should install any missing dependencies in your system. If you are trying to install a package, you can also try adding --fix-missing to your installation command.

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.

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 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.

I had a similar problem - could not run virtualbox VMs, and my installed kernel version seemed OLDER than my installed kernel header files.

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.

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
