Currently gnome-shell version 3.16 is not available for ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn). But It's available for ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) and ubuntu 15.04 was released on 23 April 2015. So now you can upgrade to 15.04 by sudo do-release-upgrade. And to upgrade gnome-shell to 3.16, add following ppa repository and run sudo apt-get update && sudo ...

The package is trying to overwrite files which are maintained by a different package. The dpkg error indicates that the insight package is trying to overwrite a file managed by gdbserver. You can't have two packages managing the same file in the packaging system's mind, so it errors. I would suggest that you investigate the PPA and reach out to the PPA ...

If ; was used they would be the same, but && continues only if the command prior to it sends a exit code saying it exited successfully. It will automatically continue if all goes well, and will only stop to prompt the user to ask whether they want to add the PPA and whether they want to install the package. It may also work better than the ...

Everything there is the same thing. I think the reason it's usually listed the way it is is because it looks better and is easier to remember, since the commands are split up.

The && operator executes the following command only upon success of the previous command / chain of commands. So the implications for those cases are: The script executes every command regardless The scripts executes sudo add-apt-repository example/program and sudo apt-get update regardless and sudo apt-get install example-program only upon ...

All these variants are same. && means that bash runs next command, after first is successfully finished.

Ok, got the answer for my first question. I added the repo and looked at its content in synaptic. What you see there is a bunch of packages. Some I have installed (since I have xfce 4.10). For those, some are up-to-date but others have a newer release. The key is then to contrast the version of those newer packages with the stable release. And, voila, for ...

When you run this command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12 and this message appears: Xfce 4.12 packages for currently supported versions of Xubuntu. Please note that these are pre-release versions, which may contain annoying bugs and/or crash. Then it's just a warning. There is the potential possibility that this PPA can also supply ...

ppa-purge is unneffective with that ppa, (elementary-os/daily) & the same with autoremove. Open Synaptic, click Settings, Repositories Click Add and add back the ppa you used previously & update sources. Click the Reload button in the upper left corner, then Origin. Click on the entry for that ppa/now similar (entry highlighted above). With ...

Just saw that I never explained how I finally get that source package to be built and accepted by Launchpad :) As GDevelop is open source, the best thing to do for someone looking to create such a package would be to look at the script making the source package for the software: https://github.com/4ian/GD/blob/master/Binaries/Packaging/PackageForUbuntu.sh ...

What worked for me is to re-install the dependency. It is the case where the installed version is more recent than the latest (what synaptic shows). It is actually equivalent to allow synaptic to downgrade the dependency package.

If you know of a specific fix or improvement in how the newer kernel handles your hardware, I say go for it. I would not have upgraded to a mainline kernel due to lack of support, except that I was having some trouble with N64 game emulation running very sluggishly with lots of bugs. After trying every configuration I could find for the emulator as well as ...

I found a solution in ScudCloud's Github page: Since you do: sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:rael-gc/scudcloud Don't update and/or try do install ScudCloud. Instead, add these PPA's to solve the libqtwebkit4 incompatibility: sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:gstreamer-developers/ppa sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:immerrr-k/qtwebkit4-backport Then, update ...

So I fixed this and I feel really dumb for not knowing this. Okay, the problem was that at some point, I added the 1386 architecture instead of i386. So when I tried to update with apt-get, it couldn't download the 32-bit packages. Thanks.

As NGRhodes points out, there simply isn't a 14.04 version of this PPA. You say you get this for every PPA... If that's really the case, you're either picking a load of duff PPAs without checking they have a 14.04 version, there's something else going on. Anyway, for this one, you have a couple of options: You can continue as you are (in the hope that ...

That PPA is no longer available. You should consider using another PPA to provide whatever app you want to install. To remove this PPA, run the following two commands: sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iaz-battery-status* sudo apt-get update

To have it add ppa.launchpad.net lines as ppa:$USER/$PPA. Add other repositories with their full line from *.list files.

can not comment because of lack of reputation, but you can install Y PPA Manager & then you could remove the erroneous PPA & then try updating.

It isn't PPAs that are unsafe, it is the stuff inside that can make them unsafe (more here). I use the PPA you linked to run Oracle Java myself, rather than install it every new update, and it is a reputable source for many people. If you want the easy, and in this case, safe way, feel free to follow the guide you linked to add the PPA, otherwise follow the ...

I have been using that webupd8 PPA for a long time, and it has always worked fine for me. Look at this similar question/answer For your general question about PPAs... Using PPAs is a fact of life for many 3rd party software apps in Ubuntu. There is nothing inheritely wrong/bad with it at all. Of course, it's always best to stick with the supported ...

Extending @Pandya-s answer. As mentioned, you can install icecat from Trisquel's main repository. For an ubuntu-14 system, use sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://mirror.fsf.org/trisquel/ belenos main" You would need to set up some trust for the repo (GPG keys). The trisquel keys can be seen here: https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/download-trisquel You ...

The clue here is "captive-login" in your last screenshot. This is a new feature [1] in Elementary OS which seeks to make connecting to the Internet seamless when behind captive portals (hence the name). It is similar in nature to features on mobile platforms like iOS and Android. When on a restricted connection such as hotel or airport wifi a check is made ...

The problem is that you are attempting to build the package for Trusty (Ubuntu 14.04), but your control file requires a newer version of gawk than is currently available for Trusty: the latest version of gawk available for Trusty is 1:4.0.1+dfsg-2.1ubuntu2 your control file is requesting a version >= 1:4.1.1+dfsg-1 The solution is to either change your ...

If you received an email with Approved or Rejected, then you've uploaded your package successfully (but then it got rejected by any reason). See the rejected message: Source/binary (i.e. mixed) uploads are not allowed. Usually this is caused because you didn't created your package with debuild -S.

Generally, <name>_<version>.orig.tar.xz or <name>_<version>.orig.tar.gz is the source archive, as released by the project. It's simply renamed to fit the vagaries of the Debian packaging system. Usually, for packaging purposes, you need to unpack <name>_<version>.orig.tar.xz in the current folder and then place the ...
