Here is how I handled it, after reading this thread; I tried first to check the file permissions, through the graphical interface, by opening 'home', 'download', i.e. the location where I put netbeans-8.0.2-linux.sh; seeing the button for changing the file to executable was unchecked, I checked it; I opened a terminal, changed to the directory where ...

I am only "answering" this because I could not format in the comments. kudos to @izx and @Brenton Horne For 14.0.4.2, I had to use a bit of both answers: sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:picaso/octave sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install octave sudo apt-get install liboctave-dev These made octave 4.0 run, but not with --force-gui sudo apt-get ...

CD drive is not working in Ubuntu I know from personal experience that if the CD drive is not showing in the drive menu in Ubuntu itself this may be caused by a software issue and it is sometimes possible to correct it by running a command in the terminal. It was when I tried it anyway. So just because the CD drive is not showing in the drive menu in Ubuntu ...

I'm not sure how you could have got to the state you describe, never the less it seems that the most sensible way to recover would be to boot from the Ubuntu installation CD in "try ubuntu" live CD mode, and use that to transfer your data to a USB pendrive or similar, so that you can then simply install a fresh copy of Windows and then recover your files ...

Purge/Reinstall also did not work for me. I found the following 'solution': I could not find mysql.cnf.fallback listed in the 'provided files' for mysql-server-5.6 / mysql-client-5.6 nor any additional info about the file.

At some point it should be possible to install from the ubuntugis repository instead of the debian repository following the instructions at https://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/alldownloads.html#debian-ubuntu. These instructions here do at present not install QGIS 2.10 for Ubuntu 15.04, but they work for Ubuntu 14.X The reason seems to be simply that this ...

I would recommend using torbrowser-launcher. It may be available via your distribution's package manager but that is probably out-of-date so I strongly recommend you install via PPA. It will download the most recent version of the Tor Browser Bundle, automatically update (preserving your bookmarks and preferences), and verify the TBB's GnuPG signature. It ...

Go to OpenCV documentation here and follow the steps. The only change is in Step 2. The cmake command should be modified to suit your needs: cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<where-you-want-to-install-opencv> .. You existing installation should be in /usr/local, so use a different folder, for example you can create one in ...

You should be able to just put the OpenCV download into a directory, run cmake there and make it. I have an old 2.2 from several years ago, but have no current experience, and the willowgarage link in the README is dead.

I would guess that only 2.10.9 is available in the Ubuntu repos. You can check which version is available with the command apt-cache policy pidgin.

You don't actually have to "install" the app. Python apps are interpreted, which means the source code is pretty much executable. In order to run the source code, for a file that is in ~/AppName/ called AppName.py, you can open a command line and just type python ~/AppName/AppName.py And that will launch your Application in whatever version of python ...

Lubuntu will best for you as it is lightest among the Ubuntu derivatives. You can use Xubuntu, if you want a bit more functionality than Lubuntu. If you want something visually appealing, then use Elementary OS, it looks a bit like OS X and is lighter than Unity.

I run the hpMini with the Intel Atom processor. I use Lubuntu 14.04 for the 32 bit i386. It is my backup computer and seems to run fine.

for a lightweight and complete distro, check out Xubuntu or Lubuntu. Xubuntu has Xfce which is very fast and it has a very low memory footprint. as is Lubuntu which comes with the "minimal" desktop that is LXDE. take a look at this post for a full list of Ubuntu-based distros.

You could upgrade from Trusty to Vivid. But you use a LTS release, therefore, another possibility: Change the dependencies with the steps below, but I can not guarantee that it is without side effects. On the other hand you do not have much choice if you do not want to downgrade the other packages. But it's only a development library and therefore your ...

Linux already contains all the necessary generic drivers that are required by most of the devices out there. This is possible because Linux is powered by a huge community of open source developers (which surprisingly nowadays include Microsoft too.) It does not mean that you an not install your own drivers, you most certainly can.

There is another alternative. Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) are supposed to make programming easier, one problem with them however is that it can be difficult to install the latest version of an IDE on a Linux system (Ubuntu) if they are not in the repos. Android Studio is one such IDE. Android Studio is the official IDE for Android ...

That is because, as mentioned in the PPA page, the PPA is deprecated and will NOT receive ANY UPDATES any more. The 'latest' version available in that PPA is 1.18.1-1.

I had this same error on a new 14.04 installation. I fixed it by making sure all scipy dependencies were installed via: sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev build-essential libatlas-base-dev gfortran I believe it was just sudo apt-get install gfortran that was necessary. If you try that first and let us know how it goes, would be helpful. This was ...

By default the Linux download is an RPM, which is a type of file to package software different from what is used by Ubuntu, as Ubuntu uses .deb files - or Debian packages. You can either convert the RPM to a Debian package, or go into the download section of the ProjectLibre site and download the Debian package directly, if available. First try to download ...

ifconfig is actually /sbin/ifconfig. It sounds like the /sbin directory is not in your PATH. Either add /sbin to your PATH, or type the command as /sbin/ifconfig

One way to run OSSEC at startup is to add the start command to /etc/rc.local before the exit 0 line and after #! /bin/sh. Though this is no longer necessary now that OSSEC supports systemd.

Not sure if you fixed this or not, but if you are still using 14.10 then you can try this: sudo nano /etc/init.d/ossec copy this: #!/bin/sh case "$1" in start) /var/ossec/bin/ossec-control start ;; stop) /var/ossec/bin/ossec-control stop ;; restart) $0 stop && sleep 3 $0 start ;; reload) $0 stop $0 start ;; *) echo "Usage: $0 ...

As the other answer correctly points out, the executable is named chrome and not chromium on linux. On top of that, I found the problem here. I used the temporary workaround which is to create a link: sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.1 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.0 The issue was posted two years ago, it's unfortunate a fix has not been ...

The executable is named chrome. I'm not sure why they posted that the executable is named Chromium, since it hasn't been named that for a long time.

Gephi doesn't works with Java 8, therefore install Java 7: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer If you don't like Oracle Java 7 as your default Java, edit your gephi.conf in gephi/etc nano gephi/etc/gephi.conf and set jdkhome jdkhome="/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle/"

Kepler? Why Kepler. Install Mars. ;) Use an extra distribution for C/C++ (Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers) and one for Java (Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers). That prepares you definitely less problems. Both languages in one development environment faces a number of traps. Believe me. Read my answer here for further instructions.

The binary (symbolic link) /usr/bin/opt is in the package llvm.

When you upgrade, Ubuntu will disable your PPA's, in an attempt to avoid conflicts of software that is no longer supported. You quite possibly upgraded from a previous version and need to re-enable the PPA. You can simply check a box in the software updater (settingsrepositoriesother software), or you could edit the source file(s) manually and uncomment ...
