comment PPA & Packaging: Having versions of packages for multiple distros
@KhurshidAlam Sorry for the super super late response. That will fail with an "Invalid Changelog", and as such, you have to specifically tag each separately when using a PPA with a different version. [launchpad.net/~nginx/+archive/stable ](launchpad.net/~nginx/+archive/stable) is a good example of this, because to make it build I have to add the distribution to the version so it builds correctly with all the different libraries. (I maintain the nginx team's ppas for now hence me using that as an example.)

comment There's a file in my trash that can't be deleted
Then something in your system is hinky. The trash folder should be in ~/.local/share, but if the Trash folder was erased then that could be a problem.

revised How to solve pkg_resources.VersionConflict error during bin/python bootstrap.py -d
Modified to not use Python language markup because this is text from the terminal and not python code.

comment Komodo Edit: GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion `sys_page_size == 0' failed
I believe you can ignore that error, I get that with almost any process that uses the GUI or GLib when I launch it from the command line. That or similar errors.

Open up the terminal and do cd ~/.local/share/Trash/files. Then do ls -l and check ownership of the file you're trying to delete.

comment Google Earth still not working in Ubuntu 12.04 32bit
@EliahKagan yes i'm aware, and i didn't say it wasn't offtopic. You and I should chat about this elsewhere, though, I did not use the default message because you can't file a bug using the method defined in the default message because the software's not in the repos. Hence the message I used.

comment Google Earth still not working in Ubuntu 12.04 32bit
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a bug in software that is not included in the Ubuntu Repositories.

@CodeKingPlusPlus yeah that explains the situation, their tarball does not automatically configure the system.

comment Set default java in .bashrc
I put that comment there so that next time people won't have to deal with this. Besides, Oracle has already said OpenJDK is a suitable equivalent in Linux for their Java, and therefore they aren't going to be updating Java for Linux very much.

comment Set default java in .bashrc
This will work if you did the manual installation from their site. Honestly, though, I would have used the webupd8team's Java PPA which would have automatically updated java alternatives.
