I use Ubuntu as my primary operating system and absolutely love it. I am also a software developer fluent in C++, PHP, and somewhat-fluent in Python.

Some links:

  • StackApplet - a Gnome applet for keeping track of your activity on this site! Included in Universe for Ubuntu 10.10+.
  • StackExchange Data Dump Browser - a browser for viewing the offline data dumps from this site
  • StackMobile - view the questions, answers, etc. on this site with a smartphone-friendly interface
  • OpenTracks - an open source railway simulation game I started

"There's a better way!" Not with Qt5, there isn't.

comment How to write Appindicators in python?
Literally all the links on the first page are dead and the second link in the answer is dead. Is there a way to use indicators from Python 3?

comment How to install Stack Applet?
@Cammy: You're welcome - glad to hear! That package is listed as a suggested dependency but it should probably be made a requirement. I'll see if I can get that fixed.

@Cammy_the_block: This may be a long shot, but please try closing StackApplet, opening a terminal, running sudo apt-get install python-appindicator, and then starting StackApplet again.

@Rinzwind: My name isn't George and I probably frequent Ask Ubuntu as much as Stack Apps.

comment How do I backport/install a newer version of clang?
@Nickolai: I have no idea. To be honest, now that Trusty is out, I'm not really doing anything with 12.04 any more.

comment Unable to install libssl1.0.0:i386 due to “unmet dependencies”?
I finally made it work with this: "sudo apt-get install libssl1.0.0/trusty libssl-dev/trusty openssl/trusty".

comment Unable to install libssl1.0.0:i386 due to “unmet dependencies”?
@mtmiller: Nope - impossible. I'm actually the guy that uploaded the OpenSSL packages to the PPA and those were the only packages I uploaded. (I created the PPA and uploaded the packages the day Heartbleed was announced.)

comment Unable to install libssl1.0.0:i386 due to “unmet dependencies”?
@chaskes: I've set them to manual with apt-mark but apt still insists that they will be removed if I downgrade libssl. I'm not sure if apt-get update will update since the PPA version ended in g and the repository's version ends in f still.

@mtmiller: If I do that, I am warned that "The following packages will be REMOVED: libcurl4-openssl-dev libpq-dev libssl-dev postgresql-server-dev-9.3 postgresql-server-dev-all"

@chaskes: You are absolutely right (good thinking). I did do that. Now how do I undo this mess? As for OpenJDK - I'm betting that it's getting held due to OpenSSL. No wait - I don't think I installed OpenJDK 7... I only installed 6.

comment Unable to install libssl1.0.0:i386 due to “unmet dependencies”?
Yeah, that's what I just noticed too. But the only two .list files I have in /etc/apt/sources.list.d are for Google Web Designer and Google Music Manager. Shouldn't PPAs show up in that directory?

@mtmiller: I've added the output of the last two. I'm noticing something unusual in the first one.

comment Running Android Emulator through Qemu on Lubuntu
The screenshots will still be helpful for someone trying to run an x86 image in a PowerPC environment. I'm unfortunately not aware of any PowerPC Android builds.

comment Running Android Emulator through Qemu on Lubuntu
Would it be possible to see a screenshot of Qemu launcher? That might help pinpoint the problem. Also, you may already be aware of this, but the G4 uses a PowerPC processor and the Android image you downloaded is intended for running on x86-based processors. Therefore emulation will be incredibly slow. You may have to wait 30-40 minutes for Android to boot.

Yes, but then all of my environment variables would be lost.

You can sometimes "accidentally" get this by using cat on a binary file.

comment Kindly explain me this code of increment decrement operator
I just explained how each operator works. I tested your snippet in 14.04 and I get the expected outcome as I've described.
