comment Distribution not supported error when trying to install Intel Graphics Installer on Ubuntu 14.04
By installing the Intel installer, then running it. It will exit on error of distribution not supported. To note - prior to Intel pulling support for 14.04 I did use it to see, really nothing better than what's already supplied or available from elsewhere (like libva, i965-va-driver 1.5.x from various ppa's, ect.

Installing the 1.0.7 installer does nothing & the installer itself, when run, will do nothing on 14.04.x. So just a waste of time..

comment You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: libc.so.6
For a fresh install of 14.04.2 - you're using the HWE mesa stack & need to install the ..lts-utopic package(s). So sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic:i386 should prove useful

comment Uninstall libav packages after re-installing from source
If you want to see example of libav11 shared & package built along with sources rebuilt to use it then you can take a look at my JL2 ppa. So that vlc is linked to & will use libavcodec56, ect. Here I have libavcodec54, libavcodec56 & libavcodec-ffmpeg56 all installed, working fine & not redundant. launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/testing6 (- if ever inclined to try ppa read page carefully & totally remove your current libav11 install...

comment Uninstall libav packages after re-installing from source
They aren't redundant, libavcodec54 can coexist with libavcodec56. Again using vlc as example once built off of libav9 it will only use libavcodec54. You'd have to rebuild vlc using libav11 to get vlc to use libavcodec56. To see run this - ldd /usr/lib/vlc/plugins/codec/libavcodec_plugin.so |grep libavcodec What's listed on the left is what it has to find to use/work. So in a nut shell any source that uses libav libs would have to be rebuilt. Right now the only thing using your libav11 shared libs are binaries you built like avconv, avplay, ect.

He did so thinking that his new libav build will replace the current installed libs, it will not. Remove libavcodec54 or libavcodec-extra-54 & vlc will fail to start as will any other package that requires the shared libav libs.

A 'fake' package in this case is an utter waste of time. For example a vlc built off of libav9 needs libavcodec54, it cannot use libavcodec56 that libav11 provides

comment Uninstall libav packages after re-installing from source
Did you build libav as static or shared? If shared & you went to new major version of libav then no package that uses those shared libs will use the new ones no matter what you do. They will have to be rebuilt using newer libav & in some cases patched to build correctly. If you built as static then you only produced some binaries that should work ok for the few things that use avconv, ect. avconv is provided by libav-tools package.

comment gnuradio-companion segmentation fault in 14.04.2
As far as installing some of those packages in 14.04.2 (HWE) the issues have been 90%+ fixed with new mesa source packages (10.1.3-0ubuntu0.4). However they are currently only in trusty -proposed. Read bug report that I've duped your above report to.

comment Package dependencies cannot be resolved, Can't install anything
If you're on Debian not sure this is the best place. If you're using Ubuntu but have added Deb Multimedia to your sources then that's a very poor idea

comment .dbus folder in home folder belongs root
~/.cache/dconf and ~/.gvfs owned & in some cases created by root would be the result of running either sudo nautilus or sudo gedit. In 14.04 or newer these directories don't even exist anymore in a fresh install & aren't used. So stop using either of those 2 commands

comment Does installing libglew-dev on 14.04.2 uninstall unity7 and install unity8?
As mentioned in your link the issues with most devel installs has been fixed in mesa 10.1.3-0ubuntu0.4. You can either wait until the new packages are released to the main repo or enable the proposed repo in Software Sources, update/reload your sources & give it a try installing qt4-default. (works fine here..

comment Everytime i tried to install it display the followin error. how to resolve it
If winbind would install ok then it's likely a mesa issue & the mess that 14.04.2 HWE & trusty -proposed created. In that case you may need to enable -proposed & upgrade mesa packages. Then install wine with proposed still enabled.

comment Everytime i tried to install it display the followin error. how to resolve it
For vlc: run this in a terminal - sudo apt-get purge vlc-data libvlccore* Then update your sources, (sudo apt-get update) & try installing vlc again. As far as wine - you likely are using the wine ppa but your issue may be that you were using trusty -proposed before & have since disabled it. What does this produce? - sudo apt-get install winbind

comment what can i do now , I just delete a document use this : sudo apt-get purge wine\*, and now my system is broken
You can try to install ubuntu-desktop , that may return enough packages to get a session. Otherwise do another install & when running dumb apt-get commands at least read what's being removed before accepting. Then maybe you'd decline & save yourself the aggravation.

comment Why gedit does not respond most of the time in Ubuntu 14.10
If not using ibus then try opening System Settings > Language > set Keyboard input methods system to none. Then log out/in. If you are using ibus the see if ibus-gtk is installed. If not then install it.
