I want to install
dpkg-reconfigure in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS install on Amazon EC2? How to go about it?
dpkg-reconfigure is provided by the
debconf package, which should always be installed in any Ubuntu 12.04 install. If it's not, use:
sudo apt-get install debconf
In your case, you are running Amazon's AMI Linux which is based on CentOS, not Ubuntu. That's why
dpkg-reconfgure, which are native to Debian/Ubuntu, are not available on your EC2 instance.
On a fresh Kubuntu 12.10 install, you will need to install these additional packages:
- ia32libs (¼ GiB!)
If you forget one, and try to install the Receiver deb package, the package system will end up in sort of a limbo. In that case (only!), run:
$ sudo dpkg -r icaclient
To remove the half-installed Receiver and start over.
After installing the 64-but Citrix Receiver 12.1 (or any NPAPI plugin for that matter), you need to reconfigure nspluginwrapper:
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure nspluginwrapper
This triggers the nspluginwrapper installer to look for new NPAPI plugins and link them into the various installed browsers in the correct manner.
