Based on your first answer, what worked for me is: "sudo `which tlmgr` install"

This did not work for me, so I closed the file and re-opened it, and then it worked.

comment Why does my startup application doesn't work in startup?
Option 2 is impossible for me because that option is not in my Dropbox preferences for some reason. I will try option 1.

comment Why does my startup application doesn't work in startup?
That question relates to installation via the command line. I used the GUI ("Startup Applications" from the dash) and it still doesn't work.

comment “Connection is Untrusted ” error in Firefox
What a wonderful Hashgacha Pratit! A relative of mine had exactly the same problem, and I found your answer 3 hours after you published it. The link you supplied: members.neto.net.il/?a=members/cert worked perfectly.

comment Dropbox syncing never finishes
Thanks, I used this link: dropbox.com/install?os=lnx and the problem was solved. The only problem is that the changes I made to my Dropbox folder before the install, got mixed up with changes I made from other computers..

Why not use KeePassX on both systems? Their website has a Windows version: keepassx.org/downloads

comment Installing Ubuntu on an existing Windows system without creating a CD?
I actually meant to ask if it is possible to install Ubuntu without burning it on any external device - CD, DVD or USB stick; just using the ISO image from Windows.

comment Installing Ubuntu on an existing Windows system without creating a CD?
I think I tried this in the past but it formatted my USB stick... Is there a way to install from USB without wiping its contents?

I added an "include" statement and it solved the problem. Thanks! I also notified the package maintainers in order to help future users.
