You can use command aliases to limit what commands the user can run as sudo - e.g. this /etc/sudoers restricts the user to commands needed to do admin: # define host aliases Host_Alias HOSTNAME = laptop # define command aliases Cmnd_Alias ARCH = /bin/tar, /bin/gzip, /bin/gunzip Cmnd_Alias CRYPT = /sbin/losetup, /sbin/cryptsetup Cmnd_Alias DIR = /bin/mkdir, ...

The latest kernel update (kernel ending in '59') on 14.04, and which I installed today, has somehow blocked use of certain parts of my computer's file system. I'm no expert, but the last readable message during boot ended with 'file system blocked'.

Simply running wine /path/to/skyrim.exe should open Skyrim using Wine.

Update: Repo fixed, use the following commands to update your system: sudo sed -i -e "s/#deb/deb/" /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade Original Answer: If you are experiencing this issue right now (around 2015-07-24), it's because someone at Valve has improperly configured their repo.

From time to time I can watch that too, but for other repositories. The problem usually resolves itself. The files are easily broken. Maybe they are just re-created on the server and you got an unfavorable situation or any programmer or administrator made a mistake. All people make mistakes. In this case, no reason to be paranoid panda … ;)

Replace XX with the version of your system's libstdc++. You need to update this when libstdc++ is updated. $ ln -sf ...
