I have very minimal experience with linux!!!!!

I have also downloaded the NVida linux Vulkan graphics drivers but they won't install because of:

root@AMDX6CORE:~# ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-364.16.run
ERROR: Temporary directory /tmp is not executable - use the  --tmpdir option to specify a different one.
  • When you are booting Ubuntu do you receive the terminal or just the terminal window in GUI? – Eofla May 15 '16 at 14:51
  • Clarify your environment - are you working with a Dual Boot setup, or Windows 10 with their 'Linux Bash' features inside the OS? – Thomas Ward May 15 '16 at 14:57
  • I am only getting UBUNTU to work(sort of) in the new Windows 10 bash pre release. When I tried to install it to its own HD it would give the black screen of death after GRUB 2 with no "Ctrl F1" option AND no way to get to a terminal to even try to fix things. – Warwick Lake May 15 '16 at 14:58

    @WarwickLake The Bash support in Windows Pre-Release is not really fully-fledged Ubuntu, per se, but you should also consider that it is still in a really really young 'pre-release' state - it's actually really more pre-Alpha stage - given it looks like everything failed to configure, that's a bug in that environment, and likely should be filed at Windows. – Thomas Ward May 15 '16 at 15:00

I found a 90% fix for this problem at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/systemd/+bug/1325142

The following has fixed most(90-95%) of my problems.

(N.B.1)

sudo dpkg-divert --local --add /etc/init.d/systemd-logind

(N.B.2)

sudo ln -s /bin/true /etc/init.d/systemd-logind

(This now works)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo dpkg --configure -a

I don't understand why this works it just does.... Something about an ancient ubuntu BUG that has come back to haunt them......
