Yes, in fact, you probably don't have to do any of that stuff at all. Most of the time, the dependency version specified in a case like yours is for >version meaning, the specified version or any version greater. If you want to install coq, just type the following commands and apt-get will automatically call the necessary dependencies for you. To do this, ...

dpkg >= 1.17.7 You may try with curl, e.g.: curl -o- https://apt.puppetlabs.com/puppetlabs-release-precise.deb | dpkg --install or more bash oriented: dpkg --install - <(curl -o- https://apt.puppetlabs.com/puppetlabs-release-precise.deb) Or the same with wget, so replace curl -o- with: wget -q -O-, or with lynx: lynx --dump. dpkg < 1.17.7 ...

In general you cannot. There are packages such as "email-client" that do not provide a dependency chain that can be followed and resolved.

Package priority The priorities of package sources is defined in the local package configuration. This configuration can be inspected with apt-cache policy. Here is an example of what apt-cache policy shows for the package git that is available in the Ubuntu main package repository, and in a PPA, and the PPA version is currently installed: $ apt-cache ...

First, you must show exactly what package the metapackage provides: example: apt-cache show linux-image-generic-lts-trusty | grep Depends: output: Depends: linux-image-generic Depends: linux-image-generic Now, if you type the specific package of the metapackage you will get your exact result: apt-cache show linux-image-generic | grep Depends: ...

The problem is the dependency: linux-image-generic-lts-trusty └── linux-image-generic └── linux-image-3.13.0-35-generic Because of this, you may not directly get information on which package will be installed. You'll need to use something like apt-rdepends.

For two different repositories, you can compare the Packages files.

The varnish repo apparently does not provide prebuilt packages for Varnish-4.0 on precise i386 (32bit). Ideally this should be indicated in the instructions, but it it not mentioned.

Looks like it was because my repository wasn't authenticated.

The easiest way to install/uninstall software in Ubuntu is through Synaptic package manager. It works faster than the Software Center, all you need to do is to press the search button and input some keywords for your search. But once you remove some piece of software you also have to run a command in a terminal to get rid of dependencies. So, in short, ...

Synaptic is not what Windows' Add/Remove Programs or Uninstall a program control panel is! It shows you software packages that are available to install and also the packages that are already installed on your system. If you want to see only what is installed on your system, click the Status button and select Installed.

Why? Developers are human and are lazy. Instead of creating a separate package manifest for each version/distribution/package list of their DEB file, they just use one master one. The suggested packages are part of this developer-declared manifest. They are just too lazy and/or overworked to update this. The package was removed from another repo, so it ...

I got the MBpart1ep0.f to compile as an amd64 binary instead of i386, so this might be easier. sudo apt-get install gfortran libmathlib2-dev libcuba3-dev I then compiled with: gfortran -o out10 MBpart1ep0.f -lmathlib -lcuba Unfortunately, the out10 file segfaults immediately with the call to cuhre_.

The only difference between Ubuntu and Kubuntu is the desktop interface you're using. The underlying system is still the same. So, as long as the computers are running the same version, it will work. (The third number on LTS releases just indicates an update milestone -- not an entirely different version) I should warn you, though, that installing packages ...

Test this: In synaptic you can select the packages you want to install and under the first menu there is an option to generate a script which you can take to another machine and run there. This script will download with wget all the packages you specified that you wanted and their dependencies. Once run you'll have all the package files needed. Carry ...

I saw that the installation size for those packages when calling up apt-get was a few MBs so I bit the bullet and let apt-get do its thing. So if anyone else is not so sure about going through with package removal, just make sure the install/uninstall size is right for the package and everything should be just fine. If it shows up as a few hundred MBs, ...

Maybe you want to create a local repository? For that you should download all packages from the public repository and save them in our local Ubuntu server hard drive. If so this is the procedure: First install the main applications: sudo su apt-get update apt-get install apt-mirror apache2 Now create a directory on your harddisk to save all packages: ...

Is there a group of people literally just spending their days installing and testing packages until they break? It's the other way round: If a package has bugs, then the maintainers fix the error in the package. If the upstream maintainers of a program release a new fix or an update, the maintainers create a new package and check it using tools like ...

ok, at last I found the answer which is very tricky: I had used the KDE default browser "rekonq" to test public proxies.

BUT! rekonq changes the system settings if you change the proxy. And this change ...

Do these packages really exist? If these commands return no luck then your packages don't exist in Ubuntu's repositories or your PPAs. Try sudo apt-get update and try again. If that doesn't work then try sudo apt-get install --fix-missing and try again. If that does not work, then this means that your packages are not available in Ubuntu's repos or ...

You can continue with no problem. Those are installation packages that are stored in your cache. There is no problem. Just continue with your installation and then run sudo apt-get autoremove to free some disk space... Also, I don't if it is necessary, you can run sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop --reinstall

It looks like the package libsane is in a weird state, because the package manager looks for a configuration file (*.dpkg-new) that is usually created when the package configuration stage would overwrite an existing and differing configuration file. I recommend that you try to re-install it: sudo apt-get install --reinstall libsane or if that doesn't word ...

You could search the APT cache for it: apt-cache search <keyword/regex> E.g. if I wanted to install SuperTuxKart, but didn't know the package name, I'd use apt-cache search tux.

TL;DR: Based on what you already do have installed, just install pkg-config and you should be good to go. Building the kernel uses Qt if you want to configure what goes into your kernel by running make xconfig. (Which you likely do, as this is one of the friendliest ways to do it.) At least for any remotely recent kernel, you can use Qt 4 instead of Qt 3. ...

Those packages belong to Qt version 3, which has become obsolete as the current version is 5.3. They are no longer included in repositories. I don't know why you would need those packages anyway. If you've not built a kernel on your system before, there are some packages needed before you can successfully build. You can get these installed with: sudo ...
