Extending on the answers of both Kulfy and NSwanson7, the installation can be fixed to version 5.7.*. No need to specify an exact version. Pin the version of mysql-client and mysql-server to 5.7*.

The safest way to install an older version of Audacity is to download its .deb file from Ubuntu Packages Search or from an official Ubuntu Launchpad website. You can select the version of Audacity from a list of Audacity versions at Audacity in Launchpad. Don't try to immediately install this .deb file! Before you install the .deb file that you downloaded ...

Expand the Ubuntu versions and find the Audacity version you're looking for, follow the link to the .deb file. https://pkgs.org/download/audacity You may end up in dependency-hell and unable to install older versions easily.

We do not do "what is the best app" questions here, because that is largely a matter of taste. However, I strongly recommend Zim notebook. You can find it in the software center.

Check whether the app is available for your version. See here. Just type in top in the terminal and you will see the information you need. However if you want htop then follow ahead. First run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade to keep the repository link up to date and update the apps if any. Then run sudo apt install htop. This should just work ...

Although not all apps work to see if your app works then look at wine app dataase.

Theoretically, yes, you are correct. You first need to install Wine (see this guide for more info on that). Then you would download the windows installer for Quicken (so quickeninstaller.exe for example). From there, all you need to do is go to the install, right click on it and select open with wine. You will be guided through a setup wizard and then the ...

Your ./makeDist command is failing due to a --releasedate date formatting problem. You have: ./makeDist --nosyntaxCheck --releasedate "date -u "+%d %b %Y"" --version $VER So use this: ./makeDist --nosyntaxCheck --releasedate $(date -u '+%d %b %Y') --version $VER Or this: ./makeDist --nosyntaxCheck --releasedate '30 Jun 2020' --version $...

As taken from this list, you'll likely want to run: sudo apt install openjdk-14-jdk This will install the Java 14 JDK which will allow you to run Java programs and develop in Java. Remember that JDK 14 is not a "LTS" release - it will no longer be supported in September of 2020 (see the Oracle release roadmap for details).

Another way I've solved this problem was by creating a symlink from the older library to the newer (in your case, from libpng12.so.0 to libpng16.so.0) No package installation necessary, although I remember that it may get broken again if libpng16 is updated, for example to libpng12.so.1

KeepNote does not work on 20.04, without installing obsolete software to make it work. Also, KeepNote was last updated in 2012. Try CherryTree. It's a flatpak app, and it's installable from the Software store, and it'll import your old KeepNote database files. A hierarchical note taking application, featuring rich text and syntax highlighting, storing data ...

Then you have to install multiarch-support package from 18.04 LTS first with cd ~/Downloads wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/glibc/multiarch-support_2.27-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb sudo apt-get install ./multiarch-support_2.27-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb and continue to follow the guide.

The keepnote package depends on python2, which is now obsolete. But you still can install it using packages from previous Ubuntu 18.04 LTS release with commands below: cd ~/Downloads wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/p/pygtk/python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb sudo apt-get install ./python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1ubuntu2_amd64.deb wget http://...

This means the package has been canceled in the new release of Ubuntu. You can search for it on Ubuntu packages website and download it manually.

Try to find one of these packages and you'll find a ...

According to the official documentation: Download the installer as miniconda.sh. Run miniconda.sh -b -p ~/path/to/install/to The installer will not prompt you for anything, including setup of your shell to activate conda. -b is for batch mode, which the docs say assumes you agree to the license(s), and also won't modify .bashrc or .bash_profile. -p {path} ...

APT fetches the packages from repositories on the basis of version, if no priority is defined in /etc/apt/preferences. It seems the PPA Kdenlive is merely a dummy PPA for releases older than 19.10 since their PPA page on Launchpad doesn't have details for still supported release such as 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) and 18.04 (Bionic Beaver). Moreover, the Packages ...

It looks like there is no 32-bit binary available. So you can't install it on a 32-bit system. If your CPU supports 64-bit architecture, consider installing a 64-bit Lubuntu.

Drop down a level in the packaging, and install grub-pc-bin and grub-efi-amd-bin. Those packages wont conflict, but neither will they install grub as an active bootloader nor update grub.cfg on upgrades. Install the top level package of your choice for the update functions: grub-pc or grub-efi-amd. There is only one /boot/grub/grub.cfg file, so you have to ...

Nautilus, the default file manager in Ubuntu (Main flavor, Gnome-shell DE), has that feature. Most of the copying is instant, en there will be no "progress bar". However, if you copy to a pendrive, you'll see the progression in the top right of nautilus. PS : it's Q&A, but make a little bit of effort in the question ! :-)

I've been using Zoom on Ubuntu using the official .deb file downloaded from their site. However, the latest update (Version 5.1.412382.0614) made things look ugly (huge icons, low-res, etc) and behave strangely. So, after some fiddling around I found that there is a snap of the zoom-client that works better than the .deb file with the added advantage that it ...
