comment How to install sql developer on ubuntu 14.04
I think that maybe step 6 should be /usr/local/bin/sqldeveloper instead of /usr/local/bin/sqldeveloper.sh? In any case, I'm having the same problem @vladmateinfo, and I've tried it three times now.

Great suggestions, especially the wireless switch. I always forget that it exists.

comment What are PPAs and how do I use them?
@trampster You are being silly with your "single successful" comparison of Ubuntu with proprietary operating systems. If Ubuntu is more difficult than other Linux distributions, then you have a point.

@psusi your comment is really the answer to my question (the first sentence). I'd accept it if it were given as an answer.

How can I tell programs like git to invoke emacs in this way?

comment How to upgrade a remote box from 10.10 to 12.04 LTS when apt doesn't work?
I haven't tried this, so not accepting. Found a way to fix apt (pointing to old-releases) which is solving my problem for now.

@Braiam Good point. But with apt broken, and with this being a remote server, it is far from obvious to me how I would install do-release-upgrade.

I don't think that this is a dup of the linked question. As I specified, the do-release-upgrade command is not found.
