Your problem is that you can not install the ubuntu-session packge. That package conflicts with the gnome-session and ubuntu-settings packages. To find out more, I would try apt-get install ubuntu-session and see what errors it gives.

The problem is this command: sudo chmod 600 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/passenger.list Which basically renders the file inaccessible to every user beyond root. You should set read permissions to this file for everyone: sudo chmod 644 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/passenger.list For more details on chmod check the Manpage.


1

The package manager can't open the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/passenger.list, the reason being "permission denied". Check the ownership and permissions on the other files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory (type sudo ls -l /etc/apt/sources.list.d/) and change those of passenger. list if they are different (i.e. if they do not have the same owner ...

try the following: extract the content of the deb file using $ ar vx file.deb check the file _gpgbuilder and that the data file has an extension .tar.gz IF it has a .tar.xz means that the package was created using a dpkg-deb on Ubuntu which has default compress-type xz (check dpkg-deb's man page on option compress-type/-Z) dpkg-sig checks for ...

The package files that Software Center and other package management tools download are stored in /var/cache/apt/archives. However, just picking up the packages from there won't do you much good. See How can I install software or packages without Internet (offline)? and understand that the Windows way of doing things does not always apply here.

The command dpkg -L <package> will display the files associated with the given package. Sample output of $ dpkg -L vim /. /usr /usr/bin /usr/bin/vim.basic /usr/share /usr/share/lintian /usr/share/lintian/overrides /usr/share/lintian/overrides/vim /usr/share/bug /usr/share/bug/vim /usr/share/bug/vim/presubj /usr/share/bug/vim/script /usr/share/doc ...

Some packages are updated by community members, but the bulk of the software in the Ubuntu repository are updated by Canonical. They categorize their software broadly into supported and unsupported. Canonical provides updates for the former and community members can provide updates for the latter. See the wikipedia page for more information on the ...

For the symbolic links to libraries I could find on my system, the links were all relative, and not absolute: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Aug 9 03:52 libwine.so -> libwine.so.1.0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Aug 9 03:52 libwine.so.1 -> libwine.so.1.0 So, it looks like the Makefile should do a cd to the library folder and make relative ...

There is probably nothing really wrong. Simple answer: apt-get and aptitude have different dependency resolvers (how-do-i-fix-these-broken-dependencies). To see if there is actually an issue you can run the following commands: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --reinstall foomatic-db-compressed-ppds xz-lzma Personally, I would advise against ...

I have a project in my college to search file or folder using the Linux or Ubuntu algorithm. I have to adapt it for mac and windows. Which algorithm does ubuntu use? An algorithm is something abstract, not bound to an OS and neither to a programming language. The aforementioned libcolumbus is a library that implements the Levenshtein distance ...

I think the algorithm is called libcolumbus. More about it can be found on the creator's blog: Introducing libcolumbus, a fast online approximate matching library

You mentioned having tried most of the cli's to resolve apt-get issues.

If you upgrade through the update manager, all of your files and currently installed programs will be preserved. They will, however, be updated to their latest versions. Additionally, it will typically ask you at the end if you would like to remove old, obsolete packages that are no longer maintained. I usually answer yes, but you can answer no if you ...

I have re-installed Ubuntu since all the important files were on a separate partition. I think this whole thing was somehow connected to me using NVIDIA binary driver - version 331.38 from nvidia-331 (proprietary,tested). When I opted for it, a very similar behavior occured on my fresh install, but after being stuck in the tty login, this time Ubuntu started ...

To complete the info provided by qbi: You need .* to match any character, any number of times You need ^ to match the start of the string So the command you want is sudo apt-get remove ^k3b.*

Firstly, in a default install it's perfectly fine to type: sudo apt-get install g++ And it will install g++, no problems, no regular expressions. First things first, have you ran: sudo apt-get update Then: sudo apt-get upgrade Then try the original command again: sudo apt-get install g++

Two problems: You tried to fetch http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/trusty.list, and made a typo to http://www.mediabuntu.org/sources.list.d/trusty.list. The program (or the ISP) you used to obtain it saw that this domain doesn't exist, and sent you down a DNS Search website. It's more likely to be your ISP, since the website says Time Warner Cable. ...

From the terminal try running the following command to see what it does: idle-python2.7 The command opens a new window of the IDLE (using Python-2.7) Integrated Development Environment for Python. idle-python2.7 is just an application, so it is safe to remove IDLE (using Python-2.7) from the Ubuntu Software Center or from the terminal by typing: sudo ...

If you're developing things*, I strongly recommend using virtualenv to create an entirely separate package environment for your development. This allows you to install anything without conflicting with the system... And perhaps more importantly, means the system updates won't conflict with your development (something I have lost hair to in the past). If you ...

This became too long for a comment. There seems to be a lot of information about dealing with similar problems, some of it pertaining directly to mariadb and mysql conflicts.

This bug has been reported here. In short there is syntax error in /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice-base.postrm script that breaks it. This what I did to fix the issue on my machine - was also suggested by nadrach here. Open that broken script for editing: sudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice-base.postrm Edit the file: #!/bin/sh set -e if [ "$1" = ...

I was able to get rid of the offending errors, but have no access to libreoffice-base. I can live without it for now as I usually use MySql instead. The way I did it was to open a nautilus window as root 'gksu nautilus' and then traverse to the directory where the postrm file resided '/var/lib/dpkg/info' then opened 'libreoffice-base.postrm' in a text editor ...

I used aptitude to solve it. I'm not sure whether is makes a difference to use aptitude, but as it's solved now for me I can not test. So if you have it installed, or can install it by apt-get install aptitude, you can try what worked for me: Start aptitude, update with u, and install any packages left to install by pressing + on "Upgradable Packages", and ...

The first two library packages are now libamd2.3.1 and libunfpack5.6.2. As for the last package, libatlas-sse2-dev is a virtual package, which means it no longer exists as a standalone package, but might be provided by some other package (that I haven't found yet).

Quoted from Ncview on Ubuntu (with a couple formatting and capitalization changes): Your hint is fine, but you still have to install some packages first: sudo apt-get install libxt-dev xaw3dg-dev sudo apt-get install libnetpbm10-dev # ppm support In addition to this is two links are needed: cd /usr/include/X11 ; ln -s Xaw3d Xaw cd /usr/lib/ ...

Try sudo dpkg --configure -a. That should automatically repair those packages. If that doesn't work, try running sudo apt-get install -f and then running sudo dpkg --configure -a again If you really want to go through each package and reinstall, And keep in mind, this is definitely not the ideal solution. Only do this if the sudo dpkg --configure -a ...

I had nearly the exact same package dependency problems and figured out wine installed packeges for i386 architecture on my i686 system. Removing this packages gstreamer1.0-libav:i386 libavcodec-extra-54:i386 libavformat54:i386 libopus0:i386 solved my problem and I was able to install vlc again using apt-get.

Saiarcot895, your advice was correct I did need to remove the packages and start again. The only difference in how this was resolved was that when I use: sudo dpkg --remove --force-all for some reason the packages remain as "to be installed" when I run: sudo apt-get update. To get around this I just had to remove the package by using: sudo apt-get remove ...

The issue is that librtmp-dev is trying to overwrite '/usr/include/librtmp/amf.h', which is also in package rtmpdump 2.5-0ubuntu2~precise. Most likely, a PPA or some other repo is providing this package, as the version in the main repos is 2.4~20110711.gitc28f1bab-1. The solution is to remove rtmpdump by running sudo dpkg --remove rtmpdump, and then to run ...

Installation directories should be defined in the debian/[applicationname].install file. Check if you set the correct path (/usr/lib) for your scripts and it should work.

I've spoken with some maintainers at the Debian IRC channel irc://irc.debian.org#debian-mentors, asking for the exact same thing, and the general consensus was: Solution #1: Integrating dependencies in your package by copying their source files over as a single codebase is very frowned upon. It would defeat the purpose of a packaging system that handles ...

After the installation completes you can delete them. Depending on the package, the files are on different paths on your system like /usr/lib /usr/bin and so on

Use apt-file to search through the contents of packages. To install and build the file index: sudo apt-get install apt-file sudo apt-file update To search: apt-file search predefs.h That will give you a package name and an absolute path to where the file would be installed. If that doesn't return anything, then search through the Ubuntu package ...

Dont bother using the terminal, just go to google and type in "skype linux/ubuntu". It's just complicating things trying to use the terminal.
