I was off the computer for a few days. One of the last things I did before shutting down the last time was to run the script "dpkg -r nautilus-dropbox_1.6.2_all," and got an error saying the superuser had to do this. When I re-booted, I got a pop-up saying to authenticate for super user, which I did. I ran that script again, and still got the same error. ...

This is bug. I was using do_dssp with previous versions of GROMACS. It did not run when it was upgraded to version 4.5.5. Somebody please upload GROMACS 4.6 in UBUNTU software center. I believe this issue had been fixed in GROMACS 4.6. see this link: http://www.shocksolution.com/2012/10/getting-dssp-to-run-with-gromacs-4-5-5-on-red-hat-linux/

I assume your problem is that you THINK your computer has no password, while it really does. There is (fortunately) a simple way to test. Open a commandline by doing Ctrl+Alt+T Type sudo -s and hit ENTER If it doesn't ask you for a password, set one. More info below. If it DOES ask you for a password, you need to recover and set a new one. To set a ...

This means that your package list is corrupted. You need to find the file it is contained in, rename it as a .old file and then run sudo apt-get update again.

TL;DR: If you're talking about just programs offered in the Software Center, and they are offered for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Ubuntu (which almost all are), then there are probably not any problems causing them to break specifically a 64-bit system. Of course it's possible for a program to have a bug that prevents it from working correctly on ...

Yes, there may be programs in Ubuntu which are not usable on 64-bit. However, generally, it will not be an issue. If you come across an application that is listed in Software Center and comes from Ubuntu, feel free to open a bug on it.

My instinct would be that they'll change it at some point to an import/export scheme. In other words, you just have to copy an installed.txt from computer to computer, which is probably what Ubuntu One was doing in the background anyway. Until they implement that in the GUI, see command-line options in this answer. Although the question is specifically ...

Assuming you followed the instructions on the github, I would suggest that you use ppa-purge to remove the 'deadsnakes' ppa sudo apt-get install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge ppa:fkrull/deadsnakes Update your path to remove the path extensions added as instructed at the github, and most of lime should be inactive. As for removing it entirely, the manner in ...

I would not recommend using those instructions, as they are incorrect (the sed -i command doesn't even exists). Both apt-get remove --purge and synaptic do what you need (in fact, synaptic is based on apt-get), the main difference is that synaptic uses a graphical interface, including a search tool both for installed and uninstalled packages. If you are ...

You have downloaded a .deb file; the next step would be to do sudo dpkg -i nameofdebfile.deb. If you have done that, the contents are moved elsewhere and it's OK to delete the .deb file. If you haven't, the OS is not using it. As for the .ppd file: this was copied to a system location (under /etc or /usr) when you installed the printer. If the printer works ...

It sounds like an issue with the GPG signing keys that are used to sign packages from repositories. One possibility is that the software repository you are connecting to is out of date (by a significant amount eg weeks). In Software Sources try selecting a different server.

Strictly speaking I do not think you can - apps are published from a single account.

I had the same problem. For me removing the cache at ~/.cache/software-center and then opening the Software Center, did the job. Just open your home folder, press ctrl+h to reveal hidden files, open .cache and delete the folder software-center (or, safer, rename it, e.g. to software-centerDeleted). It seems no root permissions are required.
