Any Ubuntu release has a fixed set of software available in the repositories. Only one version is available - except web browsers and other critical components - and that version was decided some time before the actual release.
According to https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=gtkmm the gtkmm version available for Ubuntu 20.04 is 3.24.0-1.
If you just want to run a program in Ubuntu, it is no harder than it is in windows -- you can just open the executable.
If you want to install, it can be as easy as using the graphical software installer if it is in the repos, or double clicking on the .deb file you download from the software author. However, some people think all that command line stuff ...
Ultimately I got it working on 16.04 using a solution I found in this thread.
Try to run the following in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install python-distutils-extra
Per the user who provided this answer, it would seem that python3-distutils ends up installed as a dependency of distutils-extra, though why this method works where other methods failed for me isn'...
The software is available for download from the developers at mersenne.org.
Download the Linux 64-bit version of the tar.gz, then extract the archive.
You can open the readme.txt file, which includes a section called "INSTRUCTIONS".
Feel free to read the entire file for more details on how to use the software, but here are the basics (info ...
First, make sure the installation was done correctly by running java --version, you should see something like:
Then, in order to locate the jdk folder, run the command below:
readlink -f $(which java)
It returns the path, in my case it returns:
you can run ls /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64 and it will show ...
Both problems, installation and running of signal-desktop as well as apt-get functionality returning this error, come from unexpected content in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list. (In my case this was introduced when trying to install the beta version of signal-desktop).
I would simply remove the apt file in question:
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/...
From man update-initramfs
The update-initramfs script manages your initramfs images on your lo‐
cal box. It keeps track of the existing initramfs archives in /boot.
There are three modes of operation create, update or delete. You must
at least specify one of those modes.
The initramfs is a gzipped cpio archive. At boot time, the kernel ...
Close synaptic package manager, and the "sudo apt install" command will automatically continue.
You cannot have two different applications that work with the APT package management system open at the same time.
Yes, I very frequently see the same messages as you ;)
With some debugging using dbus-monitor I see the following on pressing Yes button:

This version number is not from Ubuntu itself, but from one of its packages. They have the ubuntu name in it as they are specifically built for Ubuntu possibly with backports.
Actually, this seems to be systemd.
Current version in repos is 245.4-4ubuntu3.11, so you could just run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y after you started your container ...
Wanted to know which is the way to get it with the latest stable changes?
I would say it's your call. Both are maintained by Microsoft developers and are updated simultaneously.
I usually install via apt, but snap is listed first here, is there any advantage?
The definition of advantage varies from user to user. But this might answer your question, If a ...
You can install the Flatpak version of Darktable from your terminal, which is usually more up to date than in the Ubuntu repositories, or than is available on Snapcraft:
$ flatpak install org.darktable.Darktable
If this doesn't work, you can also install the program from the .flatpakref file for Darktable downloaded from the Flathub website, either double ...
I figured out how to fix this problem. I needed to remove and reinstall all of those 1,000-plus packages, and I did so one-by-one. And then I needed to reinstall aptitude. To acomplish this fix, I performed the following steps ...
% sudo apt-get install -f >apt-installs
After running this, the apt-installs file contained this data ...
If you install with snap, you can add the flag --channel=edge, or just --edge, to get the newest release. The reason it isn't available by default is because it hasn't been tested enough to be considered "stable" by Snap. That doesn't mean it hasn't been tested by the application developers.
In my experience, The edge release is usually the same ...
You probably have misspelled the software name. It is shipped as Snap and named
Coq Interactive Theorem Prover - coq-prover.
This Snap seems to be really broken in terms of broken launcher file.
So you have two options:
manually create a launcher to file named /snap/bin/coqide and continue to use this Snap version of application.
remove this broken Snap ...
My usual answer to this question is that on Ubuntu, generally if you're trying to do something that requires the terminal, what you're trying to do actually just is complicated and technical, and would be equally hard on Windows. For example, if you run into computer trouble, and the solution online says to do something in the terminal, the reason is because ...
To create/recreate/update the initramfs file means to update the initrd.img-* ramdisk files in /boot.
Here's a listing of my /boot. Note the size/date of the initrd.img-* files. One or more of these need updating in your case.
~$ ls -al /boot
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Jul 5 05:19 .

Ok. I finally seem to have this working. :) The terminal is still throwing a few errors after running winecfg but it seems to actually be installed and install and run my windows programs now. The current stable version is 6.0.1. On Ubuntu 20.04, the correct install procedure is reasonably involved and is as follows:
You must uninstall wine and all other ...
is it just not compatible with ubuntu 20.04?
It is compatible with Ubuntu 20.04. You can have a working wine install on Ubuntu 20.04 as evidenced by these screenshots.
This shows wine 5.0 running on a 20.04 Ubuntu MATE system.
This shows the reason for the wine install, an old Windows birding app running under wine.
To install wine on this system, I ...
On my hirsute I downloaded the .deb for Debian 11 :
Install it the usual way you prefer (dpkg, gdebi, Discover...). I used gdebi to pull three other dependencies. It was installed without errors.
When used with "apt" as a method, it is buggy (whichever level you set, it displays "E: APT_HOOK_INFO_FD is undefined.&...

Instead of force-installing deprecated Python2 packages, you could go forward with a Python3 fork of FAHControl (see this discussion), which works fine for me. The Readme describes as precondition:
apt install python3-stdeb python3-gi python3-all python3-six debhelper dh-python gir1.2-gtk-3.0
I reduced this quite a bit, as not all packages are needed (e.g. ...
The best way I found to use snap, because it has later version than ubuntu repos.

And I have found solution, to to accept pulse in snap settings and turn fceux use pulse via SDL settings:
