Photoshop and Microsoft Office can be run on Xubuntu with the Wine program.

If yes, could you give me the list for the software please? Yes. And the answer is: ALL of them are incompatible. xUbuntu or any Linux based operating system is 100% different compared to Windows.

One issue is that the sav-* scripts mentioned in your output seem to be missing a LSB-header. If that is some Sophos Antivirus stuff, better ask Sophos about it. If all else fails, try to add the LSB tags manually to /etc/init.d/sav-web and the other two.

You will need to restart your X11 session after installation to make it work and also when you want it completely removed after uninstall. Guru bonus gibberish: The program hooks a shim of itself into every X11 application by filling an environment variable that can only be set once at X11 start-up. The preloading happens in ...

You mean this Byte browser? You created a click package and uploaded it to the click store. It will never appear in the Ubuntu Software Center, as that is for traditional Debian packaged applications. Apps packaged as clicks will appear in the click store scope in Unity8. If you wish to ship your application in Ubuntu Software Center, you will need to ...

Just wanted to mention my own solution, at this point you can just open the terminal and run the command: sudo apt-get install universalindentgui And that's it! I experienced the same issue when trying to install the UniversalIndentGUI package from sourceforge. For whatever reason using apt-get instead works without problems.

I've encountered similar problems largely with incorrectly installed or updated Ubuntu systems. You may want to attempt a reinstall using a tutorial specifically for whatever hardware it is you're installing Ubuntu on to.

You shouldn't install JDK for all system (java for all system on Russian), install it for specified user - it's more flexible: Download any JDK (*.tar.gz or *.sh) Install it to any folder (basically *.sh script will only unpack archive, so new JDK can be manually unpacked to any folder), so java will be located here - ...

Because you silently authenticate via PolicyKit when running the Software Updater. Part of the 'secret' is in the file /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla more exactly via this entry: [Update already installed software] Identity=unix-group:admin;unix-group:sudo Action=org.debian.apt.upgrade-packages ResultActive=yes

Software Updater does use sudo. It asks for your password, or the password of an admin, which is what is used to enter sudo. Not using sudo is definitely safer, but only because you can't do anything without it.

As it has been stated already, Ubuntu Oneric is EOL, so its official repositories are no longer mantained.

This error occurs because the mysql-community-client package you are trying to download and install requires libstdc++6 >=4.9. The latest version of libstdc++6 available on the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS repositories is 4.8.2-19ubuntu1, which is older than 4.9. I'm assuming that you're running Ubuntu 14.04, because the libstdc++6 package on your computer is stuck ...

You can have a look at the appstore from time to time. In the database, you can sort by newest. You may want to look at a Google Plus Community. There are posts about developers questions which may not be that interesting. Howeverm when a new high quality app/update enters the store its usually posted there.
