As you can see, some applications in Debian/Ubuntu tend to be very old, with Ruby we generally prefer to avoid system packages. There are some very robust Ruby managers like RVM (recommended for beginners) and rbenv which create an isolated Ruby installation in your home directory, so you have everything up-to-date and under control. However, if you only ...

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 ...

One method is to use Ubuntu Software Center. Open it and use the arrow down next to "installed". It will list (from bottom up) PPA's installed: When you click on a PPA (TLP as an example) it will list the software included in this PPA. A green 'tick' means the software is installed. If none are the PPA is unused.

Usually this error happens when you mis-type the apt command, which doesn't seem to be case here (if I believe you). Can you please login as su and then do the apt-get update? I know using the system as Super User is not a good thing to do but at lease for one time, you can give it a try. P.S. Is there a proxy on your network?

I would say a few things. First, I need to caution you against using the command su -- it is a bad practice that can only cause problems. When you need administrative privileges, you should prefix your normal commands with sudo. If you really need a root prompt, you can use sudo -i. Now I took a look at the x2go wiki page and they didn't intend for you ...

According to the Launchpad PPA Terms of Use, OSI or FSF approved licences are allowed and the MIT licence has both approvals. You can tell dh_make which licence to use: dh_make -c mit dh_make has a few licences inbuilt, for others you will have to manually edit the files later.

I think you can temporarily solve the problem by commenting (removing) the following lines in /usr/share/emacs(24)/site-lisp/gforth/gforth.el: (eval-when-compile (byte-compile 'forth-set-word-properties) (byte-compile 'forth-next-known-forth-word) (byte-compile 'forth-update-properties) (byte-compile 'forth-delete-properties) (byte-compile ...

Yes. You can remove the PPA after you are done installing. However, you will no longer receive updates to software. PPAs are "software repositories". You get software from them. The software doesn't need it. Think of your program as a bottle of milk. The PPA is the store. When you buy the milk, the milk (nor you) no longer needs the store. You can (if you ...

That PPA doesn't exist for 'Trusty', just for 'Raring'. Try to replace 'trusty' with 'raring' for distribution. Just select PPA in 'Software & Updates' (your image) than click 'Edit...' and write 'raring' (without quotes) under 'Distribution'. Do this for 'Source Code' PPA also. After that sudo apt-get update and install what you need. Probably ...

3.12 isn't that different from 3.10, so you can just install Gnome Shell from the official repositories without using the PPAs: sudo apt-get install gnome-shell gnome-tweak-tool To install GNOME 3.12 on Ubuntu 14.04, you have to use the GNOME3 Staging PPA (which itself depends on the GNOME3 PPA). Be warned that this can break things. sudo ...

There is the PPA pi-rho/dev, which has vim 7.4.401 packages, at 2014-09-02. (The current default version for trusty is 7.4.052) The version is available for precise and trusty, the build for utopic seems unavailable currently. Details on the versions from apt-cache: $ date Tue Sep 2 17:22:43 CEST 2014 $ apt-cache policy vim vim: Installed: ...

Unfortunately, it's not that simple. There's a requirement that there cannot be the same version of a package but with different contents in a given archive. What this means is that you can't tell Launchpad to rebuild a package for Trusty when it's built for Precise (in your own PPA), because the version is the same, but the final deb packages will be ...

1) sudo nano /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice-base.postrm Add the line: /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/basic/script.xlc to the end of the file's second if statement, just above the closing fi.
